|Yes, that kind of intimacy.|
The reason for that is pretty complicated. Despite my outward appearance of a giant wall bear of a man, I'm actually rather fragile in many ways. I had some rough experiences during my formative years that I carried with me, things that made it difficult to feel good about myself or feel like I had someone I could trust to protect me. That's not knocking my parents, as they did the best they could, but the world is rough and sometimes you need someone to look up to. Cue my uncle introducing me to the world of giant monsters. My uncle was good at introducing me to things like that, even though he's not the most ambitious guy. He got me into things like foreign cinema with martial arts and yakuza films, helped me branch out and try different comic books, and most notably gave me my gateway into kaiju.
|And he did it all while looking like he probably eats people's faces.|
|But I still looked goooood.|
|"Fuck you for liking things and having an opinion contrary to my own!"|
|Also, feel free to go hug someone. Even if they are a giant bug, they still have feelings.|
