Maks, I know you don’t have the meta knowledge on your side, but I’ve got some baaaaad news for you.

Okay but now a real reply: this is why I love Chekhov's gun. We all know the crash is coming, somehow, some way.

The choice to include bits of Fly Me To the Moon wasn't without thought. Maks wants a way out and away, fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars far away and safe from my mounting list of problems in this mortal coil that keeps getting scorched.

Should I read this page while that is playing?

@Haze If you so desire :) it's a nice tune that feels so jarring juxtaposed to something like this, imo. But it's kind of a satisfying, horrible contrast.

A lot of us feeling similar to Maks these days, for many different reasons

I love me some irony at bad times. It gives the illusion of clever

That's a great plan. Would be a shame if the plot had anything to say about it.

I like the subtle touch of irony with Fly Me to the Moon playing, considering he's from outer space. Or am I reading too far into things there?

I think he would have gone to Toronto if he knew this plot was going to happen.

And well :))) I don't think you're reading too much into it.

It's not massively important but Maks was in fact born on earth, his parents weren't though!

Few things I love more than a beautifully innocent song playing during a scene that's clearly about to go to hell (or is already there). Great atmosphere here

Thank you! I love it too, ironic juxtaposition is such a fun thing
