What a hard question.

Hmmm I'd say I like lots of movies but that isn't true I'm very very picky. But I like movies from lots of genre so I'll just list a few of my top picks.

Westerns: Silverado or Open Range
Good Martial Arts: Brotherhood of the Wolf
Bad Martial Arts: Twin Dragons with Let Li
Drama: Henry the 5th
Comedy: Blazing Saddles
Dark Comedy: Suicide Kings or How to kill your Neighbor's Dog
Cop Movie: The Untouchables
Super Hero Movie: Iron Man or Mystery Men
Adventure: Princess Bride
Action: Terminator 2 or The Rock
Modern Sci-fi: Star Trek 2: Wrath of Kaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahn!
Classic Sci-fi: Forbidden Planet
Anime: Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
Cartoon: The Incredibles or Sleeping Beauty
Romantic Comedy: While you were Sleeping
Girly Movie: The Secret Garden
Manly Movie: Escape from New York
Horror: The Omen
Classic Horror: The Thing
Bad Horror: The House on Haunted Hill (Vincent Price Version)
Film Based on a TV Series: Maverik
MST3K/Rifftrak: Fantastic Four
Military Movie: Executive Decision(SP)
Twist End Movie: Unbreakable
Fantasy Movie: The Lion, The Witch & the Wardrobe
Obscure Fantasy Movie: Lady Hawk or Dragonslayer
Bad Fantasy Movie: Beast Master
Based on a Book I read: The Two Towers
Movies based on something odd: Clue
Remake: The Thing
Religious: Ben-Her
Political: Wag the Dog
Silent Movie: The Unholy Three
Musical: The Blues Brothers

Hmmm I'm sure I could come up with more if I thought about it but that it off the top of my head. Being a writer I tend to be a little snobby about movies and only like things with what I feel is both clever writting and direction. As you can see from my picks though I don't stay to far from the main stream but I do enjoy seeing lesser known movies when some of my more adventurous and motivated friends share them with me. I'm the sort of person that usually like to wait and let other people see movies first rather then taking a chance on a movie on the chance that I'll hate it for two hours. Not to say I've never gone to a bomb movie before *cough*Cloverfield*cough* I just try and avoid it.

What about you Neila?

3 questions:


1) How did you guys meet?

2) How did you guys come up with the idea for Night School?

3) Who does more work into the comic?

More questions alright!

1. Well we first “met” online when Amy started commenting on my comic 3rd Party Fantasy but I'd say we only became good friends after we did a crossover together. The first time I met her in person was the 3rd of July. I wanted to get out of town for the holiday weekend and Amy I had recently found out was in driving distance so I thought it would be really cool to meet someone I knew online.

2. I saw Amy had created a lot of Hybrid characters in her CTV forum as part of a game they were playing there. I really liked the design for the Uma/Rodericke hybrid so I wrote to Amy asking if I could have all the designs from the forum game to use in a new series. Since most of them were supernatural kids the idea just sort of evolved from the charcters. So the short answer is I got the idea from the character designs. At one point I just numbers all the characters and started randomly giving them names and one sentence descriptions to give me a starting point and pretty much everything evolved from there.

3. Amelius. No question about it. Planning & scripting out the comic takes at most 1/20th the time it takes Amy to design, layout, sketch, ink, color, shade & text a page.

If real life Nick was a teacher, would he act like Nick from NS?
What class(es) does Nick from NS teach?
What would real life Nick teach?

Besides Nick and Amelius, how many teachers are there in NS?
Which teacher do the kids consider coolest?

Has anyone ever tried to ride Azure?

How many art gnomes does Amy currently employee?
Are all of them able to work legally in the US?

I'll assume you mean Proffesor Ezriel whom of course is TOTALLY different from myself.

If I was in Ezriel's possition maybe, more then likely I'd value my job to much to cut loose into the kids. Hopefully I'd enjoy it a least a little more. I'd probably be less snarky but more evil with the assignments.

Raccoo
What class(es) does Nick from NS teach?

History & Magic. There is one other but I can't remember off the top of my head.

Raccoo
What would real life Nick teach?

Probably not much I am a terrible teacher as I have no patience with people. My best subjects was always history so I'd probably teach that. Though Ezriel teaches history strictly for story reasons.

If this was college I'd teach something totally worthless to your future job like Greek Myth or how to write web comics. :p

Raccoo
Besides Nick and Amelius, how many teachers are there in NS?

Well it depends on who all you count. Proffessor Ezriel and Minvera Amelius are the only two teachers there five days a week but there are several other teachers who come in on specific days. If we count things like health and art then a total of 5 teachers work at Night School plus the pricipal and sub.

Raccoo
Which teacher do the kids consider coolest?

Generally the students don't think their teachers are very cool but Minvera is probably the best liked.

Raccoo
Has anyone ever tried to ride Azure?

Yea but after Azure threatened to eat Skee he didn't try it again. There is certainly no shortage of people who would like to ride Azure though.

Raccoo
How many art gnomes does Amy currently employee?

It depends on how many she can wind up before her arm starts to hurt.

Raccoo
Are all of them able to work legally in the US?

Yes we keep all their gears & clockwork in keeping with US laws to prevent automiton uprisings.

Yeah, the long black hair and the frequent use of shades is just a coincidence.

Q: Hats or sombreros?

I think I know a trick questions when I see one. I'll choose a Nice Hat. Something with grace and dignity or maybe one those red mage numbers….

Okay, how do you catch them? I've tried laying traps for them, leaving cookies for them, sacrificing mean people to them…

I have no idea. (I'd have a lot more comics if I did.) They came with her when I married here.

I've tried pokeball, digidexes & cash but nothing seems to work.
