“I’d like to meet her before we work together.” They worked out that we’d meet for dinner. You know, she was 19 years old at the time. I was a worldly 24. So I was thinking, “Oh my God, it’ll be like working with a high school kid.” But I was just bowled over. I mean she was just so instantly ingratiating and funny and outspoken. She had a way of just being so brutally candid. I’d just met her but it was like talking to a person you’d known for 10 years. She was telling me stuff about her stepfather, about her mom, about Eddie Fisher — it was just harrowing in its detail. I kept thinking, “Should I know this?” I mean, I wouldn’t have shared that with somebody that I had trusted for years and years and years. But she was the opposite. She just sucked you into her world.

“She’s 19 years old so she’s very young, very innocent and it kind of becomes clear that she isn’t very materialistic. She very much appreciates nature and being outside and adventure and just the simple things in life like flowers and the sea, so it’s beautiful to be out in Cornwall where she could appreciate the surroundings.” - Ellise Chappell
Mark Hamill’s Carrie Fisher Tribute: “Making Her Laugh Was a Badge of Honor”
Carrie and I occupied a unique area in each other’s lives. It was like we were in a garage band together that somehow hit it huge. We had no idea the impact Star Wars would have on the world. I remember we were out on tour right before the movie opened. By the time we got to Chicago, there was a crowd at the airport. I said, ‘Hey look, you guys, there must be somebody famous on the plane.“ I was looking around to see who it might be. And then in the crowd I saw a kid dressed in a Han Solo vest. Then I saw girl dressed like Princess Leia. I said, "Oh my God, look, Carrie, there’s somebody dressed just like you. She’s got the buns on her head!” The first time I met Carrie was at dinner in London before we started filming together. I had been the first one to go over to Africa with Sir Alec Guinness and the robots, to do all the desert planet stuff, then I came back to London and then Harrison Ford came over. Carrie was the last piece in the puzzle to come to London. So I said to the production office, “I’d like to meet her before we work together.” They worked out that we’d meet for dinner. You know, she was 19 years old at the time. I was a worldly 24. So I was thinking, “Oh my God, it’ll be like working with a high school kid.” But I was just bowled over. I mean she was just so instantly ingratiating and funny and outspoken. She had a way of just being so brutally candid. I’d just met her but it was like talking to a person you’d known for ten years. She was telling me stuff about her stepfather, about her mom, about Eddie Fisher - it was just harrowing in its detail. I kept thinking, “Should I know this?” I mean, I wouldn’t have shared that with somebody that I had trusted for years and years and years. But she was the opposite. She just sucked you into her world.
I was so middle class. Growing up, the closest thing to a celebrity we had was our next door neighbor, who was a baggage handler who returned Jerry Lewis’ wallet that fell on the tarmac in San Diego. But Carrie was something completely different. She dropped out of high school to be in the chorus of “Irene” on Broadway. I was just in awe of her.
She was so committed to joy and fun and embracing life. She had an Auntie Mame quality to her. I would do crazy things to amuse her on the set. Making her laugh was always a badge of honor. I remember during Empire we were split up storywise; it was a difficult film to shot and there was a lot of tension on the set. I was off in the swampland with the puppets and robots, but at least Carrie and Harrison got to work with human beings. Once at lunchtime she said, “You should try on my jumpsuit.” I said, “The one-piece white jumpsuit? You’re what, 5'2”? I’ll never get in!“ She said, "Just try.” I put on that Princess Leia zipper jump suit and it was so tight I looked like a Vegas lounge singer. If that wasn’t ridiculous enough, she had me put on one of those bald cap masks with the Bozo hair and glasses and nose and then she walked me around the back lot. The lengths I would go to hear her laugh - there were no limits. I loved her and loved making her laugh. She would do these crazy things and make me do these crazy things, but I really don’t think they were crazy after all. In a way, it was a defense mechanism for her. She was so off the wall, she could use it as protection. Part of what was so poignant about her was that she was vulnerable, that there was this glimmer of a little girl that was so appealing and it roused the protective nature in my personality.
I’m grateful that we stayed friends and got to have this second act with the new movies. I think it was reassuring to her that I was there, the same person, that she could trust me, as critical as we could sometimes be with each other. We ran the gamut over the years, where we were in love with each other, where we hated each other’s guts. “I’m not speaking to you, you’re such a judgmental, royal brat!” We went through it all. It’s like we were a family. When you were in her good graces, you couldn’t have more fun with any person on the planet. She was able to make you feel like you were the most important thing in her life. I think that’s a really rare quality. And then you could go 180 degrees opposite, where you were furious with one another and wouldn’t speak for weeks and weeks. But that’s all part of what makes a relationship complete. It’s not all one sided. Like I say, she was a handful. She was high maintenance. But my life would have been so much drabber and less interesting if she hadn’t been the friend that she was.
[ Have some doodles and other things from when I was dealing with my faulty-ass computer as well as some doodles that somehow managed to turn out ok when I was figuring out how to draw this damn fox. The top 3 have to do a lot with her backstory!…Slightly intentional pun….but up there we got Carm’s scar from when she was stabbed, her pretty momma (an attempt was made), her as a lil babby, and 19 year old engaged Carm! She was really a different girl back then, in fact she used to smile (woah. WOAH).
Okay so tonight I was supposed to work 8 hours but I ended up working 10 and a half because we got slammed and a bunch of people called off, and everyone was tired, and we all just wanted to go home, and I’m working the fucking drive thru by myself (order taking and register operating) so I’m losing my goddamn mind, and then this older woman, probably in her 60′s, pulls up to the window and says:
“Hi, I have a sort of odd request: can I pay for the next three people in line behind me?”
So of course I’m like, “Uhhhh, I guess if you want to. Do you want to know how much their orders are, or…?”
And she’s just like, “Nope, whatever it costs, I can pay.”
And I’m standing there, slack-jawed like “holy shit okay rad” and I ask her why? Why does she want to do this? And she answers:
“About 8 months ago, I got laid off and I was struggling really bad and a lot of people supported me with these little random acts of kindness, and I’ve got a new job and come into some money so I want to return that; good karma and everything.”
So I ring her up, and she thanks me and pulls away, and at this point I’m just like all sparkly anime eyes, and then the 1st person whose order she paid for pulls up, and it’s a young woman, maybe 19 years old, and she goes, “I’m so sorry, I thought I had a $10 bill but I only have a $5, can I take something off? I’m so sorry.”
And I get to look at this girl and say, “Ma’am, there’s no need to worry about it, the woman in the car in front of you paid for your meal.”
And the look on this girl’s face…good god, she actually CRIED a little bit, shook my hand, and told me that the next time she had money, she was going to do the same for someone else.
The 2nd person that the woman paid for pulls up, hands me a $20 bill, which I hand back to her saying, “Your meal was paid for by another customer.” This lady gives me a blank stare, slowly withdraws her hand with the money, and whispers out a choked up, “Wow…wow, thank you; thank you.”
And the 3rd person whose meal was paid for (here’s the kicker) gave me a $50 bill to cover his $48-and-some-change order, and basically yells, “WHAT?!” when I tell him that it’s been paid for. He then declares, “Well, then I’ll pay for the next two orders; are they under $50?” (yes, they were) “Alright, fantastic.”
And after that, for the rest of my shift (another 35 minutes!), every person that came through paid for one or two cars behind them; some were simple 4 or 5 dollar orders, some were $45+, but everyone, regardless of how much their original meal was and how much the person’s behind them was, paid it forward.
As far as I know, it’s still going on. I’ll have to ask my manager how it ended tomorrow.
My faith in humanity has been restored; I’ve cried happy tears for the first time in a very long while; and today was a really good day.
sutanamrull: Prepare for an overload of throwbacks! I’m moving to a new home and in the purging, I’ve excavated some treasures. Like this photo of me at about 18 or 19 years old. Dawwwwww….she was so sweet and naive.

A new segment called “Street survey! Which one is right!? debuted in this episode!
For the first round, Ayachan was shown pictures of four guys and she had to guess which one was chosen as the most good looking! Ayachan was able to correctly determine that it was #3!
Next she was shown a picture of a British man, and she had to pick which of the four Japanese girls was his girlfriend. When Ayachan saw the man, she actually said he reminded her of Sirius Black from Harry Potter! Ayachan was told the man was 29 years old, so she first eliminated the 19 year old girl for being too young. She ended up deciding on #3, since she figured a foreigner would be more likely to date someone without bangs. Ayachan was right again, and she said she must be a genius!
Do you think Historia will have childs with someone how she is a queen a she is a Reiss and she have the power of the cordenate do you think that she will have a relation with someone for have descendents and how Ymir is death she have her heart empty ?
You know many would be offended by the idea, but to me it just causes me a little grace.
The answer to your question would be no and I can tell you why
You know even though Historia is emotionally mature in some respects she still has 15 years … then she will only be 19 years old so it is not necessary to generate an heir, remembering that no one could force her to do something she does not want.
Also think like a mother or a woman
Would you have a baby when you are about to start a war that you might not win?
Now seeing the sentimental point I’ll tell you this.
Ymir was Historia special person, the one who most influenced her in every aspect, which gave her great joy but at the same time much pain …. is something that is not easily overcome.
She shared dreams with Ymir, joys that only belong to her even her tears are just for her she does not have to show it to others.
I could even tell you that Historia suffered a lot more for Ymir than many do not notice
It is as if you told me that Mikasa quickly surpasses Eren and becomes a mother is very absurd …. besides that the queen and the girl Ackerman are very similar and the greatest similarity is that connection to his beloved
Narratively I will only ask you this question Isayama will reduce to one of its more complicated and better developed characters in a simple queen with children ?.
Those who support this “theory” do not think of all the negative points that discredit this.
I hope I have answered your question thanks for visiting the blog.
