girl fact #285: makeup gives us super human strength. if you see a girl with perfect winged eyeliner and red lipstick, approach with caution. she’s got the power to slay her enemies with one look and use their blood as blush.
I just want to throw it out there that I really appreciate the fact that, in Pacific Rim, Mako Mori was never really shamed for wanting revenge on the Kaiju. Sure, her initial Drift with Raleigh was botched by her intense emotions, but even after, neither the characters nor the narrative told her to forget revenge or anger. Her desire for vengeance drove her, and that was okay. No one told her to forgive the Kaiju, and the filmmakers never threw in a scene with her looking a Kaiju in the eye and saying, “It’s really very beautiful.” AND THAT’S GREAT, because, while forgiveness is healing for many people, for others it can be just as healing to know that what happened to you will never happen to anyone else ever again. The narrative allowed Mako to both own and utilize her emotions, and for that it gets a gold star from me.
