it’d be so good. Everyone would map theological explanations of the aliens onto them. It’d be so much fun.
Aliens: Take us to your leader.
Jocelyn, Peasant: All right. Um, which one? Are you for King Stephen or the Empress Maude?
Jocelyn: I recommend Empress Maude. King Stephen is a lying usurper.
Aliens: All right, Empress Maude. Take us to her.

Jocelyn: You’re angels right? Come to bring us portends and tidings of the divine?
Aliens: Or to massacre you.
Jocelyn: That makes sense. We’re very sinful. We deserve whatever punishment it is God has seen fit to bestow upon us.
