Sometime around 2012-2013 – just after the apocalypse.
Entirely the fault of me watching Kong yesterday.
“Idu Intinn… kaiju.”
There were times when Cya really could not fault Leo for believing he was an anime hero.
“Okay, guys, it’s got no brain, take it down.”
Of course, times like this, it would probably be more helpful if he thought he was the hero in a Toho flick.
“Taking out its… uh.. forelimbs… watch the ground… now! Abatu Eperu έδαφος gamma.”
She was probably going to hell for thinking so flippantly about it. Then again, they might already all be in hell.
From her perch on the wall (because she was squishy and theoretically a non-combatant), Cya watched the lizard-like creature twice the height of the nearby buildings stumble into the pit she’d made under its forelimbs. It brought its neck down to a reasonable height for the others to start lopping at it and she, because she had never been all that reasonable about such things, jumped down onto its back.
“Why this is hell, nor am I out of it,” she muttered, while she sliced down the thing’s spine with her sharpest knife. “Tempero Eperu, Unutu λεπίδα αιχμηρός,” she hissed, sharpening her blade, and dug in again. “Think’st thou that I who saw the faces of gods…” She’d better watch out, or she was going to end up as mad as Leo, quoting Shakespeare in the midst of a battle.
And thinking midst. She held on to her blade with both hands while the thing bucked. “Hole coming, one, two… now! Abatu Eperu έδαφος delta!”
She rode the thing down to the ground, blood and gore splattering all over her. She’d found its spine, though, and now she could sever its spinal cored. “Do you think?” she asked, as she sawed through the thing, “that someone showed the returned gods the wrong movies? Or do you think Japan had a window into Ellehem a long time ago?”
The Workings she uses in this are, in order:
“Know Mind” (does it have one?)
“Destroy Earth, ground, level 3″ (and later level 4)
“Control Earth-and-Worked-Objects, blade, sharper.”
