How do you go to the moon metaphorically?

By meeting up with River again. :vikonsmile: That was always far more important than actually going to the moon.

Yeah, the entire wish to go to the moon was a poetic interpretation of him wanting to be with River. When he reunited with her in his fake memories, he was figuratively on the moon.

Well, figuratively, he was actually over the moon. :p

Hey pickle pickle,
The rabbit is little,
Johnny went over the moon.
Dr. Watts laughed at his own corny joke,
And the kids played the piano tune. :)

I don't think more people would have enjoyed a bad ending instead of the bittersweet one and a pure happy ending wasn't possible with this premise.
Spoiler: show

The sudden reappearence of River was a bit "deus ex machina", but it wasn't totally unplausible.


So...uhm what kind of ending did you want?

I would actually argue that it isn't a deus ex machina at all, if you accept Johnny having metaphorically gone to the moon. Sure, Eva says that she wasn't sure it would happen, but as others have said, the ending was all about River. Neil made a comment somewhere about it, something to the effect of, "it wasn't an inspirational childhood story, it was all about a girl, meh." If going to the moon was all about River for Johnny, then her reappearance in those altered memories doesn't seem like a small implausible shot but rather almost overwhelmingly likely.  IMHO, Eva under-exaggerated a bit. She might not have been able to give it a 100% guarantee, but I think the odds were more than in her favor.  The way it happened may have been a bit dramatic, but storytelling often is dramatic. That's how I took it, anyway.

Anyway, yeah, I'm new, sorry for just coming out of nowhere to throw in my two cents. :P I've lurked here a bit for the past few days. I've played TtM twice December and loved it, can't wait for the next one.
