I confess: this scene is inspired from Twilight.
The car scene where Edward saved Bella from an out of control car was in the trailer that kept playing on TV. It made me wonder: if a sparkly vampire can save someone from a car crash using super speed and strength, how would my creatures do it? Why, by being so massive that the weight of a car is not such a big deal! And being soft enough not to crush whomever you land on.
In the original scene, though, I don't get why it all happened between Edward and Bella. She threatens to tell everyone what he did, and he says no one will believe her. What about the driver? That car didn't get there on its own!!! Driver saw everything too! So on my version, the driver is also a sentient being.
You pulled it off better than Twilight did. I would LOVE to see the romance that blossoms from this. :D
Writing John into a romantic story would be quite the challenge! He's the embodied opposite of drama!
Oh man, after all of that, to get hit on the head by the car door as the driver tries to get out.... no good deed goes unpunished!
He'll get his revenge, don't worry!
Aaah he sure can take a beating.
It's a good thing he's got thick skin.
But oooh, he better teach that driver a lesson.
Or the girl for being stupid and jay-walking. :T
You know these fighting games where a character can randomly produce a steamroller? Wouldn't work against him!
I love the car door *tonk* in the last panel. Sometimes its that last little thing that hurts more than the entire "getting hit by a car" thing!
Oh yeah, that one hurts in the pride too! Especially since it HAD to make a funny sound, it HAD TO! :C
