“To draw out that humor, Jenkins gave Pine and Gadot a lot of opportunity to improvise. In one scene (boat scene) the two share a boat ride back to man’s world where they reveal their initial chemistry — and provide a lot of hints to the overall tone of the film. Gadot and Pine ad-libbed the entire scene. Pine loved it, especially since it highlighted Gadot’s surprisingly good improve skills.
“She has to be the straight woman, that’s the harder part,” Pine says. “She’s delivering lines like ‘My father is Zeus’ — s— that is just so ridiculous. And she has to say it with a straight face, with a certain amount of innocence and earnestness. I get to react like any human being would to hearing something as ridiculous as that. So I had easy.”
“There was plenty of improvising. Great lines arrived every day, and particularly the boat scene. Chris Pine’s entire riff about not being an “average” man was improvised on the spot - as were many other great moments. I encourage humor all the time!”

Random Mew Mew Trivia: One of Ichigo’s teachers, who appears in episodes 12 & 38 was actually the teacher from episode 18 of Ghost Stories. Both shows were animated by Studio Pierrot (With quite a few of the same animators.), so she was most likely put into Mew Mew as a little inside joke.
Special Thanks to AnimeXmagic for noticing her design.
Only the bare minimum because my heart is still exhausted from it all.
Costume designer Jane Greenwood (The Little Foxes) finally won on her 20th competitive Tony nomination!
Gavin Creel’s win for playing Cornelius Hackl in Hello, Dolly! marks the first time an actor won a Tony for Dolly that wasn’t actually playing Dolly.
Christopher Ashley’s upset win for Director of a Musical marks the first time since John Doyle’s win for Sweeney Todd in 2006 that the winner of that award did not go to either the Best Musical winner or the Best Revival winner.
Kevin Kline won his third Tony for Present Laughter, for Leading Actor in a Play. He previously won for Featured Actor in a Musical for On the Twentieth Century (1978) and Leading Actor in a Musical for The Pirates of Penzance (1981). If he wins Featured Actor in a Play, he’ll join the ranks of the few actors to win in all four eligible acting categories.
For the second year in a row, all four playwrights nominated for Best Play were making their Broadway debuts. This is a little more unsettling than last year, though, as this year’s lineup included Pulitzer Prize-winners Lynn Nottage and Paula Vogel, but better late than never I guess?
In contrast to last year, all eight of the acting winners were white.
Alex Lacamoire (Dear Evan Hansen) and Andy Blankenbuehler (Bandstand) both won back to back awards in their respective categories (Orchestrations, Choreography). They won last year for Hamilton.
Following Garry Hynes, Mary Zimmerman, Anna D. Shapiro, Marianne Elliott, and Pam MacKinnon, Rebecca Taichman has become the sixth woman to win Director of a Play.
Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812′s loss marks the first time since 2013 that the obviously superior choice lost Best Musical.
What inspired you to make Guardia in the first place?
Initially, I never planned for Guardia to be a webcomic at first! If anything, Yggdra had been a character I created for my old roleplaying days, and then a character I used in my cartooning class back when I was in college in 2012!
(Yggdra in 2012)
The more I used her in my classes the more I began developing her has a character and getting attached to her. I even began using her in my animation classes at the time!
I ended up making an ask blog along with a few new characters later into the year. During the time of the ask blog, I started developing more things about the world, the academy, etc.
I ended up getting so inspired by the little things, I ended up taking down the ask blog and revamped EVERYTHING. That was the moment I decided I wanted to make a webcomic out of this.
I rewrote Yggdra’s character, took a year to develop the world and lore, and tried to figure out characters and how they’d all play into the story!
;v; It’s still a lot of fun working on Guardia, and I’ve actually gotten caught up with my work enough to conitnue work on it now!
The drawings below are the very first drawings of Yggdra when I thought of her in 2011:
Fun Fact: In an early stage of the game’s development, Brooke was going to be called Hayley. References to this name can still be found in the game files; an animation sequence of Brooke flying her drone in “Chrysalis” is named “AS_E1_3A_CampusA_Hayley”.
One of the interesting things that Velvet’s design included, but isn’t much seen on the Ufotable’s artworks, and only on the in-game model and Inomata’s graphics:
It’s called Sanpaku eyes.
wiki: For thousands of years, people of the Far East have been looking into each other’s eyes for signs of this dreaded condition. Any sign of sanpaku meant that a man’s entire system — physical, physiological and spiritual — was out of balance. He had committed sins against the order of the universe and he was therefore sick, unhappy, insane, what the West has come to call “accident prone”. The condition of sanpaku is a warning, a sign from nature, that one’s life is threatened by an early and tragic end.

Hey there. I’m a college student just trying to figure out his life at the moment. I have a destination in mind, just need a little direction. A few things about me: I love stories of all kinds. Films, TV series, novels, comics/graphic novels, video games, it doesn’t matter as long as the story is good. I’d list all my favorites, but that’d take too long, so let’s just say if you get to know me, I will certainly talk about them. Due to my love of stories, about 60% of my speech pattern is made up of quotes. I also like to know things. I’m a bit of an information sponge, so if a piece of trivia in one of my stories catches my eye, I will suddenly have to know everything about it. Since I’m naturally curious, expect me to ask a ton of random questions. Of course, I’ll never force you to tell me anything, but I’ll still be dying to know. I write a bit of poetry, but I haven’t had much inspiration in a long while. I used to think myself the creative type, but now I just do it as a hobby. I used to practice martial arts, and I’ve been meaning to start training again. I’m interested in guns and knives, but not because they hurt people. That’s the thing about them I hate the most. Get to know me and I’ll tell you more. I don’t carry many prejudices in this world. To me, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation don’t matter. People are just people once you strip away everything else. Everyone has a story, and if you listen carefully enough, you start to hear that a lot of them sound the same, even if they come from different places. The only things that could make me not like you are how much ignorance is in your head and how much malice is in your heart. Respect me, I’ll respect you, and we’ll all get along fine. So, if I haven’t scared you off by now, how about you tell me your story?
Preferences: I would prefer people around my age, between 18-20. I will admit that I’d prefer females, but if there’s anyone who’d like to talk fandom theories with me, I’m open to you.
