History

MonsterVerse

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Scylla was awakened from her slumber in Arizona by King Ghidorah's call, which also awakened many other Titans around the world. Scylla's legs tore through the desert near an oilfield as she erupted from underground. Like the other Titans, Scylla rampaged through populated areas, destroying buildings in nearby Phoenix with her colossal legs. Eventually, she made her way to Boston along with Methuselah, Behemoth, a female MUTO, and a flock of Leafwings. There, they found the alpha they were following, Ghidorah, slain at the hands of Godzilla. Rodan approached Godzilla to challenge him, but was intimidated by his gaze and ultimately submitted. The other Titans all followed suit, each "bowing" in their own way to the new King of the Monsters. Later on, Scylla was reported to have left human civilization and taken up residence in a lake. The creature was also credited with slowing down the melting of the polar ice caps.

@Les and @The King of the Monsters: What I did was...

1. Went to Jisho and typed in "Scylla."

2. Copied the kanji (スキュラ).

3. Went to Google Translate (*Seriously, what else was I gonna use? Jisho doesn't seem to transliterate, for some reason*.).

4. Pasted the kanji and the transliteration underneath came up as "Sukyura."

So, where's the "Shira" coming from?

@Skullislandexplorer also, most of earths population of terrestrial organisms would die out, and most trees would die out, which could possibly make life on land or air impossible. most sealife would be ok, but seals , penguins, whales, dolphins, saltwater crocodiles, and all air breathing sea animals would be in great danger, most islands would sink, and lots of humanity would drown. And that's just what could happen in the first century or two. One can only begin to imagine what would happen to the surviving species.

@SkullIslandExplorer: I know, right? Reason being that my main laptop (*note: this one*) was suffering so flickering issues, a couple months ago. So much so, that I tried to solve it the only way I knew how (*and Yang would most likely solve it, in the same way, too*)….. By punching it. Luckily, I only managed to just crack the screen, in a bunch of places. Which jacked up the touchscreen function.

What I didn't know was that Lenovo Yoga 730-13IKB laptops have a history of having flickering screens. Not a software issue, just a misrouted wire that sits too close to the fan.

So continuing, it was over a month ago that the flickering menace came back, with a vengeance. To which I tried to solve AGAIN with a punch...… THAT COMPLETELY MADE MATTERS MUCH WORSE. Good thing I had a notebook/mini-laptop handy (*that I hardly use*) and ordered the screen replacement that was already in my eBay cart! Next problem was.....I didn't save the password of my Wikizilla account on said notebook/mini-laptop. Whoops! So I got the replacement, a couple weeks ago, and finally got Veronica 2.0 fixed! Still need to take a really small-headed torque screwdriver to it, so I can see if the computer guys fixed the wire issue. (Cuz I DID mention that part.)

And that all brings us full circle to now.

Moral of the story is.....Emotions make people OP!!! LOL! XD
