A Warm Fuzzy Gallery Of Our Readers’ Tabletop Day Pictures

Whenever you put out a call for reader pictures, there’s always the slight fear that no one will come to the party. But you guys didn’t just send pictures — you sent bucketloads. More than we knew what to do with. You shared stories, too, and your enthusiasm was entirely contagious. It was a perfect summation of everything that Tabletop Day stands for, and it made your weekend editor very happy indeed.

Quickly, before we get mushy — on to the pictures!

Shailene Woodley Won’t Be Having Any Of Your Pitting-Ladies-Against-Ladies Nonsense

“If my character [from Divergent] and Katniss from The Hunger Games battled it out? I don’t know. I don’t feel like they would actually battle. I feel like it’d be like, ‘You’re a strong lady? I’m a strong lady, too. Let’s combine forces and bring it together.’”Shailene Woodley in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, providing us with the YA version of that time Amy Adams said she’d rather Lois Lane and Wonder Woman work together to get stuff done instead of fighting over some dude, y’know? Or when Jessica Chastain called out the media for perpetuating “the myth that women are competitive and cannot get along” when people were talking about a (made up) feud between her and Jennifer Lawrence. Ovaries before brovaries!

You certainly did read that correctly.  There’s pretty much nothing greater than kittens unless it’s delightful children telling the story of Frozen with the help of some super cute kittens.  The kids even sing a line or two from each song! The video tells the entire story of Frozen, so if you haven’t seen it yet be warned there are spoilers!

Attack on Titan Creator, Publisher On Character’s Gender

Manga artist and writer Hajime Isamaya created Attack on Titan, a manga and anime that is beautiful, dark, and complex…and also extremely popular.  It also features a character named Zoë Hange who, despite their female first name, is consistently not gendered in the course of the manga or anime.  Isamaya has clearly done this deliberately, as he’s repeatedly avoided giving Hange (or Hanji as the name is often written) a specific binary gender. Publisher Kodansha has now gotten in on the discussion via their Tumblr account and is attempting to keep the Attack on Titan manga as close to Isamaya’s vision as possible.

Illustrator Gives The Neverending Story A Modern Twist

The Neverending Story was one of my very favorite movies growing up. I practically wore out the VHS and, later, the book. (If you haven’t read Michael Ende‘s original book, oh my God go now and read the book it is so much better!) One sunny day in my teens I decided to rewatch the film and was very disillusioned when I saw how poorly it had aged. I dunno, maybe the puberty hormones were messing with me that day. But as good as The Neverending Story is, some of the effects have not aged particularly well. Which is part of its charm, but I’m not going to say no to these slick character redesigns by Nicolas Francoeur. The fact that I never say no to anything The Neverending Story is beside the point.
