I want to be clear: I'm not joking about these feels. I mean, I'm saying "feels", which is sort of ridiculous, but that's just what modern geek culture has done to me. The feels behind those feelings, what the ancients would call "emotions"? Those are genuine, and I'm feeling them big time.

I would like to note that, in panel two, Ellen is referring to how she felt at a time when she was scared about vanishing in a month either way. I believe it is safe to say she would have felt differently about it had she not been under that impression.
