My mom and I once named a visiting cat Giles, after the “Buffy” character, so I gave Rupert his first name. The other references: Luke is from Star Wars, Ron is from HP, Starbuck is from Battlestar Galactica, Jean-Luc is from Star Trek, Crichton is from Farscape, and the Doctor is from Doctor Who. I thought they were pretty obvious, but my mom said I had to list them. Ugh. Parents. By the way, while I like a lot of the TV shows Chapel owns, Doctor Who is my favorite. But only with the 10th Doctor, thank you. None of this Matt Smith junk for me.

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
