Veronica: Here Paulo comes to save the day! I was originally gonna make Lucy save Mike all by herself but I felt that was a bit too unrealistic? You don’t really just sprout swimming abilities.

this makes me think of when i was being pushed out into the ocean, in a riptide. the feeling of no bottom under my feet was the most terrifying part. and the crashing waves. man, i’m glad i had my board to grab on to, but still scared to hell. i can only imagine how horrifying this was for lucy since she didn’t have something that could help her float and shes lugging someone with her who shes tryin to save ;_;

I’m confused as to why David, the golden retriever, didn’t save everyone.. I mean, that’s kinda his thing. Like, if there was a clown that didn’t amuse a bored crowd.
