NOW SEE IF IT WASN’T FOR THESE BADASS LADIES THE WORLD WOULD’VE BEEN FUCKING DESTROYED BY KAIJU FIVE YEARS IN I’M SERIOUS THEY’RE SO AWESOME

Family isn’t always a matter of blood. Sometimes, it’s something we build.

It’s a decision to care about someone else. It’s the opposite of loneliness.

Tamsin was family to me. We fought monsters together. We experienced each other’s emotions.

And suddenly, she was gone.

Before Tasmin, I had already lost my sister is San Francisco.

Before that, long before that, I lost my father when I was just a child.

Not much older than the girl from that famous picture.

Tokyo’s daughter.

The iconic survivor.

You’ve seen the picture, I’m sure, know what her name was?

Mako Mori.

I know this because I adopted her.

so Coyote Tango’s decal...

Please God someone tell me Coyote Tango’s decal is the terrible, terrible tramp stamp Luna got tattooed over her butt that time she and Tamsin got drunk and rowdy before they were properly together, when Tamsin dared Luna to get a tattoo, and Luna - being Luna, and never one to back away from a challenge because you can take the girl out of Tottenham but you can’t take Tottenham out of the girl - agreed

and because Luna lost the bet, Tamsin got to pick the design and she fully expected Luna to back down when she saw the stupid thing but Luna didn’t (because she’s Luna bloody Pentecost) so they staggered out of the parlour tipsy at five in the afternoon with wadding taped over Luna’s back and more over the two cheesy blue swallows on Tamsin’s ankle she got as a sign of solidarity,

and if that stinging blood-spotted moment they stood in the street weighing up the ouches against the walk back to base wasn’t the moment Tamsin fell 100% no-backsies no-bullshit in love with Luna–

It’s a running joke, that tattoo. It means you sign up for something, and you go through with it. No matter how much it’s going to hurt.

(Also it’s a trashy-as-all-get-out tramp stamp and no one can convince me for a second that Luna Pentecost didn’t have a wild phase that made her brother cringe, or that far too many Glory Days drinking night stories didn’t centre around Luna, Tamsin and Stacker’s shenanigans.)

Luna bloody Pentecost. Coyote bloody Tango.
