Pay attention, because the special effects were very expensive.

The parachute ballooned up, covering Miyatake as Vera pulled away and dove for cover.

The socks, Lefty and Hugo, were furiously rubbing themselves against the fabric of the parachute. Sparks cascaded from it like chain lightning.
Hugo and Lefty to the rescue !!! :yay !!:

"Hugo?"

"Yeah, Lefty."

"This feels wrong."

"I'ts for the greater good, Lefty. Try not to worry about it."

"Okay."

Post #431, my legacy of stage craft. I'd claim Hugo and Lefty, but of course they, by definition, have a life of their own, and their genesis can be credited to Neko and Zelda. But the loud pop-snap and the smell of ozone, that's all me, baby.

I am inordinately happy.

EDIT: Zelda, stop reading my mind.

Harv kicked out at Fujimora, who ducked and grabbed his groin, defensively.

Vivaldi started running around in circles, yapping hysterically.

"I thought you only had to do that three times a day?"

"This is a bonus."


In Panama City, Ingrid Miyatake, suitcase in hand gave final instructions to her gardener on the care and feeding of her children and boarded a plane for Mexico City.

That phrase, interpreted "biblically", is most certainly true.

Miyatake pulled the trigger on the squid, which discharged onto the fabric of the parachute, causing an awful mess. Some of the ink splattered on Lefty, forming, for some reason the picture of a flying panda near his toe.

Vivaldi lunged for Miyatake's throat.

Harv swung wildly at Fujimora.

Vera reached into the boat and pulled the safety switches off the cannisters.

Meanwhile, in Mexico City, the streets mamboed as the mighty and mighty beautiful and mighty dangerous volcano belched forth a hot and stinking cloud of gas with a mighty rumble, then settled down to slumbering dormancy yet again. Or did it?

Harv missed and lost his footing.

Grinning evilly, Fujimora raised his hands in preparation.

"Now we see who is better at fighting, no?"

Miyatake dodged the dog attacking him, swept his hands around and pushed the parachute into the lake, grounding it, and eliminating it's defensive abilities.

He raised the squid, which seemed to be saying, "Hi! I was supposed to just untie Vera and be in my way. Sorry about this."*

Freeze frame to get the perspective, just a moment:

Harv is unbalanced and near to fallling over.

Vera is leaning on the sailboat, unable to get out of the way.

Miyatake is holding the squid in a manacing fashion on Vera.

Fujimora is getting ready to kick Harv's ass.

Vivaldi is flying through the air with an embarrassed look on his face.

The squid is calling his agent and complaining.

That squid struggles to communicate, being forced to emote with its eyes and such. It is very thoughtful and insightful. I think it should use some of that ink and write a book.
