You know, I pity those poor kids up in the EVAs. Used to work on the inside myself, saw a lot of kids come all all scarred and shit, and not just on the outside either- hell, those are the lucky ones. Sure, there's some that come out of the tubes still the same happy bastards they were going in, but you can't break what's already broken, get me? That said, I'll thank you kindly not to mention any of that- eh? What's that?
No, no, bad choice of words, sorry. When I said 'on the inside', I meant as a guard, not a pilot. Didn't qualify, wouldn't want to. Nah, I'm pretty much happy being up here, doing regular police work. 'Cos it ain't 'regular'-regular, you know, being a cop in a city targeted by Angels. Yeah, sure, I know I could die any time those giant sonsabitches comes along, but any job that requires you to hold a gun's dangerous by default, and as a god-fearin' man, I have full confidence that when my time's up, I'll be marching up to the Pearly Gates and tellin' everyone in earshot that I didn't die some bitch death, I got my ass killed by a fuckin' Angel.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah- see, most people who ain't from these parts- exam-ply gotcha, someone like YOU- think that the EVA pilots get all the glory, that we gropos get the wrong end of a shitty stick. Thing is, that's what most civvies think too, hah! See, kiddo, what with all the media talking about the EVA pilots, and how everything from TV shows to goddamn pencils have licensed konockoff NERV shit to hock to tourists, every civilian with more than two brain cells gets to thinkin' "Oh, those poor boys in green! Ain't fair, them kids gettin' all the attention while honest Joes like them have to do the cleanup!" And it starts gettin' out- thing about word of mouth is that with EVAs around, people like us don't need a lot of words to get plenty of mouth, get me?
