Image result for marvel end game


1. Characters can feel SO REAL. We've spent so much time with these characters, particularly the original six. We've seen them behave well and badly, seen them victorious and devastated. I think it's seeing this range, seeing how differently each of them reacts in difference situations makes them feel like people we know.

2. Even action is enhanced when character is king. To be honest, this is where I think Marve...know.

Eliot Schrefer
“…the primary trait of young adult literature is that the author’s emphasis is on plot and character and not on his own brilliance. And because few people talk about whether a young adult work is commercial or literary; the two are still in sync, and everyone’s benefitting.”
Eliot Schrefer

Jack Gilbert
“We must risk delight. We can do without pleasure,

Jack Gilbert, Refusing Heaven
