Leigh Bardugo, Michael Dante DiMartino, and Tomi Adeyemi: Fantasy, Diversity, and Inspiring One Another—Leigh Bardugo (Six of Crows, Crooked Kingdom, and Wonder Woman: Warbringer), Michael Dante DiMartino (Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, and Rebel Genius), and Tomi Adeyemi (Children of Blood and Bone) come together to talk about fantasy across all mediums, diversity in literature and on the screen, and their inspirations for their incredible works. All three creators will discuss their highly anticipated upcoming projects: The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo, Warrior Genius and The Legend of Korra comics by Michael DiMartino, and Tomi Adeyemi’s Children of Blood and Bone (both the trilogy and the forthcoming movie adaptation, which has been optioned by Fox 2000). This panel will be moderated by Kurt Mattila, film director and editor of such films as TRON: The Next Day and Lies & Alibis.

Part Dos
@whitetreefox​ colored this part for me!!! I drew this like over a month or two ago and I never would’ve finished if it weren’t for fox saving my butt on colors YwY Thank you foxie!!

Also this was going to be the escape comic before ppl started liking these comics and now I’m addicted to making them and also now I can’t do an escape comic without Valentino!! So I added that last tiny part at the last second lol

guys but listen

  • so after the foxes win everyone starts paying attention to them
  • suddenly the press is all over their social media and wants them on talk shows and panels all the time
  • and they do it bc they could use some good publicity tbh and they rly need a bigger team
  • one day allison (her and neil are bffs now dont fight me on this i s2g) is watching tv w neil and he is rly into what’s happening and she pulls out her sc and starts taking a video
  • she holds the camera so both their faces show and goes “hey neil” and and when he starts to look over she kisses him on the cheek (allison reynolds does not give 2 shits about neil’s scars and she’s gonna show every1)
  • the video ends just as neil smiles
  • ppl on the internet lose their shit !! this video is everywhere
  • allison moved on from seth and NEIL JOSTEN is dating a teammate
  • so they go on a lowkey trashy talk show (and everyone warns neil to keep his mouth shut)
  • the lady is like “so neil i hear ur in a relationship with one of ur teammates”
  • all the foxes hold their breath he’s too unpredictable
  • wymack takes a drink
  • andreil arent hiding anything really they just dont do pda so neil is like “oh ya we like to keep our relationship private tho lets talk about exy”
  • and she is like “well it didnt look like you were keeping it private when allison posted this on her sc” and she plays the video
  • all the foxes start laughing except kevin, andrew, and aaron
  • allison is literally losing her shit and matt has trouble breathing for a few seconds
  • and the lady is like “…um did i miss something haha”
  • and nicky takes pity on her “we’re just laughing bc neil and allison are definitely not dating sry”
  • and she is like “???????????? but ur still dating a teammate”
  • kevin quickly redirects the conversation back to exy bc they do not have the time to sit here and talk about andreil’s love life jfc
  • she cant get anything else out of them
  • so ppl are just losing their minds for like a week trying to figure out who neil is dating when renee posts a pic on instagram of them w the caption “neil drove me to lunch and paid for my meal” ((they actually talk about andrew lol))
  • and now every1 is like omg !! this is it!!
  • so the foxes are doing a panel and they get through a decent amount of exy related questions and then
  • “i have a question for neil. would u like to comment on ur relationship w renee walker??”
  • “id like to comment that my relationship w renee is that we r good friends and that id like to talk about exy now”
  • they cant get anything else out of anyone
  • so now ppl rly confused bc neil is a Straight Man and only Dan is left but her and Matt are very publicly dating 
  • what kind of sexual deviancy is this ??????????? is neil josten engaging in some kind of polyamorous relationship with his teammates?????? no one can answer
  • ok so next talk show 
  • this woman barely gets the introductions out before she leaps right in
  • “neil are you currently in a relationship with dan wilds despite the fact that she is dating matt boyd?” 
  • neil has had enough
  • this boy just wants to play exy hes too old for this
  • he just stares at her
  • he cant even speak like who is this woman??
  • he didnt ask to dismantle heteronormativity in america but apparently he has to
  • “i dont have a gf”
  • she stares back
  • “are you no longer in a relationship with one of your teammates as you previously stated?????”
  • the foxes are getting worried neil might kill her
  • it’s getting very hard not to laugh
  • neil stares a little longer
  • “i dont have a gf
  • the host’s eyes widen
  • the audience goes silent
  • “am i to understand that neil josten, breakout exy player of the year, has just come out??”
  • ppl start clapping (some ppl boo and nicky starts to flip them off before kevin grabs his hand)
  • this woman has just gotten one of the best stories of her life on live television
  • she cant stop smiling
  • once again kevin steers the conversation back to exy (even when he isnt insulting ppl why does neil always have to cause problems ??) and doesnt let her go back
  • there’s wild speculation about which boy he’s dating bc it doesnt makes sense ?????/
  • aaron has been seen kissing katelyn after games
  • kevin and thea are now officially dating
  • nicky is v vocal about his bf (like 12 times a day on twitter)
  • matt and dan are definitely still dating
  • andrew is not capable of relationships ????? and him and neil hate each other ???/
  • the answer comes 3 weeks later
  • they are all in the girls’ room for a movie night
  • everyone but renee is slightly drunk
  • allison and renee take a cute pic
  • in the background u can kinda see neil asleep on andrew who in a rare display of affection actually has a hand in his hair
  • allison notices right before she posts it on instagram but andreil have already said that they arent rly trying to hide their relationship they just arent going to go out of their way just for crazy talk show hosts
  • and DAMN
  • the way they are leaning against each other is unmistakable (esp in light of recent news) 
  • neil josten and andrew minyard are in a relationship?????? have been in a relationship?????? the ppl need confirmation
  • neil’s twitter (that he uses to retweet exy players and occasionally start fights w them) is being blown up
  • finally he goes on twitter and makes his first original tweet 
  • “Andrew is my boyfriend.”
  • twitter literally explodes and “andreil” is trending for a week

Bob’s Burgers to do one-hour Christmas musical special

Adam Driver will be featured in the holiday episode

Bob’s Burgers always serves up a tasty special holiday episode (“Tina and the Real Ghost,” “The Quirkducers,” “God Rest Ye Merry Gentle-Mannequins”) but there’s one in the works for later this year that’s extra special.

Creator Loren Bouchard announced at the animated Fox comedy’s Comic-Con panel on Friday that this year’s Christmas episode will be an hourlong special, which marks a first for the show. (Last season, fellow Fox animated comedy The Simpsons offered up an hourlong episode.)

“It should feel almost like a little Christmas movie,” he said. “It’s kind of epic. It’s got an hourlong feel to it.”

He also revealed that Adam Driver would be featured in the special, which is slated to air in December.

The panel also unspooled a sneak peek at the season 8 premiere, a “completely fan-drawn episode,” Bouchard said, featuring a “new style in every scene.” The show solicited fan-animated (fanimated?) from viewers earlier this year in three categories: title sequence animations, background static panel, and character static panel. “It is crazy-making to watch, but it is also incredible,” Bouchard teased. “It’s so fun to hear these guys’ words coming out of a different design.”

When asked by a fan whether any crossovers were in the works, Bouchard said the Bob’s Burgers team was working on a couch gag for The Simpsons. (Bob Belcher previously shared the screen with Homer Simpson in the Simpsons–Family Guy crossover episode in 2014.)

Also being featured in season 8 is the voice of Silicon Valley star Thomas Middleditch, playing a kid named Alex who hosts Gene for his first sleepover. “Gene, as you can imagine, has really horrible time,” Bouchard said.

Season 8 of Bob’s Burgers begins Oct. 1.

I think it’s a great episode for a lot of reasons. The first half of the season was a little heavy, a little intense, a little sad. So, it was important to lighten things up a bit. And, I think this is probably the lightest. THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN RICK AND MICHONNE, IN MY OPINION, WAS THE BEST THAT WE’VE SEEN IN THE SERIES, IN THIS EPISODE. You see Danai smile. It was kinda great…They were on a honeymoon.
