Way back in Season One, I decided Chapel should play squash
, not because I play it, but because it stresses the same attributes Chapel places importance on herself. Squash places a huge emphasis on tactical strategy and the ability to think on your feet, so much so that it’s described as “turbo-powered chess.” We know from Chapel’s board game battles with Fred that Chapel is good at strategizing and quick thinking which makes squash the perfect sport for her. I also wanted to show that someone like Chapel (who’s not very athletic) can enjoy and be good at her sport of choice - at least when she repeats her Gaga mantra to help her focus!
When I need an extra jolt of motivation, my song mantra is “Shut Up and Explode” by the Boom Boom Satellites. My mom’s song mantra is “Gonna Fly Now” from the movie Rocky and I’ve named this strip for her. While I never get tired of my song, my mom saves her song for very special occasions (like LSATs and bar exams) so it doesn’t lose its “running up the steps to the Art Museum” effect.

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?
