Another Black Lagoon piece, featuring the lovely Kay Lawrence and Gill man. It's my all time favourite movie and I'm obsessed with an imaginary ending where Kay and the Gill man fall in love and live in the lagoon forever in some rose-tinted, romantic, hazy dream; Cooking amazonian fish, living off the land, taking swims and lazing on the sand in the mid-afternoon. She tidies his cave and dresses it up, knits him jumpers when it's cool in the evenings, and he takes care of her and shows her the magic of the Black Lagoon... Perfect! Unfortunately that's not the ending, so I'll have to deal with sitting back and redrawing how I'd have liked it to end instead of how it did.

I love old 50's movies, more so probably than modern movies. I feel like I could kick back and watch nothing but mid-century tacky flicks...
