Name: Morgan
Age: 19
Country: USA

Hello! I’m Morgan, a 19 year old from the USA. I’ve had a few pen pals in the past and am looking for another. I love to travel and explore the world, so getting to know someone from a different perspective is incredibly interesting. I’m a student at university who is studying mechanical engineering and french. I love to cook and to garden when I’m not hitting the books!
I am also a huge sci-fi nerd( Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, LOTR, Harry Potter, Marvel, Dark Horse… you name it I’m probably at least heard of it!) I love to sing, listen to music and read and am always looking for new book and music recommendations. I am nearly fluent in French and fluent in English, so either language works for me. I’m happy to swap adventure stories, day to day happenings, or geek out about whats happening in the sci-fi world!

Preferences: I’d prefer to talk to people in my age group (18-25) but really anyone with a good sense of humor and similar interests! If you’re down for snail mail too after a while that’d be awesome!

I read my first Valerian and Laureline comic :D It liked it very very much! I’ll have to get the others that have been translated recently! (for some reason, same as Spirou, only 10 are available in english it seems)

I read ‘Empire of a Thousand Planets’ which is the second story from 1969/1971. I didn’t want to start with number 1 because the second story is a space adventure while the first book as a dystopian future story of a 1980s New York. But I’ll think about getting the first book now!

I like the art for Laureline a lot. it’s VERY French.

And the blurb at the back says the parts that I probably was unsure about will only get better as it sites the second book as having “all the promise and clumsiness of beginners starting out.” So that’s great! It means the albums will only get better!

Anyway I liked it a lot. When I one day have money again I will buy the others.

Also omg Star Wars took so much from this album alone X’D I heard it was an inspiration for Star Wars but DAMN.

As much as I love ACOMAF and SoC, I feel like they’re the only bookish posts popping up on my dash. So if you post about any of the following books (or just books in general), please like/reblog so I can follow you. Thanks!

A director explains what it was like casting Rihanna in his movie: 'She's the queen'

Luc Besson has always had an eye for casting actresses who are mesmerizing on the big screen.

There was Natalie Portman in her breakout role in “Léon: The Professional,” model-turned-action star Milla Jovovich in “The Fifth Element,” Scarlett Johansson in “Lucy,” and for his latest movie, “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets,” you can add two more names: Cara Delevingne and Rihanna.

Delevingne is one of the leads in this adaptation of the legendary French sci-fi graphic novel, while Rihanna plays a shape-shifting entertainer named Bubble.

Having already become one of the biggest artists in the music industry, Rihanna has moved her attention to movies and TV of late. She played Marion Crane in the latest season of “Bates Motel” and recently wrapped on the female-focused “Ocean’s Eleven” movie, “Ocean’s Eight.”

Besson talked to Business Insider and other press on Monday after showing the trailer for “Valerian,” and when Rihanna came up, he pointed out the surprising ease of working with the pop superstar.

“What was amazing was all the entourage is out, she’s on the set by herself, totally open, and you can mold her how you want,” he said. “There’s no distance, nothing. She waits for you to do something with her. She offers herself like clay.”

He admits, however, that he was shocked to get her on the set all. It seems she basically never has free time.

“The most difficult thing was trying to catch her to get her on set,” Besson said. “I think her schedule is worse than any president in the world - I couldn’t believe it. She can land at midnight, work until 2am, and I thought I was busy. But she’s the queen.”

Hey! My name’s Rinoa :~) I’m just looking for a pen pal to talk to. I love making friends and learning from other people.

Some of my favorite things are plants, photography, stars, dogs (I think all animals are great really), movies (I especially love superhero/sci-fi movies), nature, science, and music (I love discovering new music). That’s just a few of the things I love.

I speak English and a bit of French. I studied French for five years at school, and I’m still pretty bleh. It would be amazing if I got a pen pal who spoke French, but that doesn’t really matter.

Thank you x

Preferences: Someone around my age group (16-20) is preferred, but I’m not picky.
