The Martian : Scott's apologies for Prometheus
"She will need coffee soon, or molecular degeneration will set in. Her French phrasing will take over even more strongly, and soon she will dissolve into a puddle of alienation and Kierkegaardian despair."  ~ Jmack

Riyria Revelations. Where are we going?

In case you don't get it, play the Dora theme song in your head.
Love that series though. Pick it up if you haven't!

Dora The explorer is an American TV show for kids. Or, it was. Anyway, it was about this spanish-speaking girl who always had to find something, and there was this Fox that would try to ruin everything named Swiper. It was one of those interactive shows. For example, to get Swiper to go away, Dora would tell the kids watching to scream, "Swiper no swiping!"
If you think it sounds bad, you are not mistaken. In the theme song, Dora would ask, "Where are we going?" You were supposed to reply with the destination for that episode. For example, "Where are we going?" "To the shadowy mountain!" 
You should really look the theme song up. Its a horror everyone should experience at least once.

Alloy of Law, Shadows of Self...

So many bullet casings.



Seriously, Wax uses SO MANY of them to propel himself, it's totally unrealistic, it seems he has 10 or 20 of the things in his pockets, but when someone pushes or pulls on him, they're never around to be discarded. A bit of a boring plot device.

Could be wrong, but I only remember him dropping one or two. The rest of the time he shot a bullet into the ground and used the casing from that.
I think someone should've been accidentally shot though. You can't just run around shooting bullets downward and not expect casualties.
