Many relationships often see a tug-of-war between a geek and their spouse over just how geeky their household can be. One would consider themselves lucky just to be able to buy a figure or two to display in their homes. Others, not so much.
But you know your spouse is truly a keeper when they go out of their way just to save your precious, precious collection, of all things that could’ve been salvaged.
Such was the case with a couple in Yudong, Chongqing, China, where a massive flood – the biggest one in Southern China since 1981 – ravaged many homes in their residential area and beyond. While their city was still half-submerged in water, a woman literally went out of her way to go back to her home just to save her husband’s Mobile Suit Gundam collection.
She then managed to hoist herself up to the second floor of their apartment by smashing through the windows (cutting her finger in the process), and retrieved all the boxes of her husband’s Gundam figures and paddled back to where her husband was.
The husband, a non-swimmer, had already intended on abandoning his collection, but his wife, who also happened to be a Gundam enthusiast and a builder of Zaku mobile suits, insisted on rescuing them.
Claiming to be a long-distance swimmer herself, she decided to take matters into her own hands, and hence rescued her husband’s collection.
If that’s not true love, we really don’t know what is.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
