She has also become synonymous with creating some of the most powerful female narratives in gaming history, and is the daughter of one of the most celebrated authors of British literature - Terry Pratchett. 

Rhianna generously shares a very in-depth look at exactly what it takes for writers and filmmakers to craft an iconic and memorable protagonist, and how your story can work across multiple mediums!

Writing The Four Types of Love

It's safe to say the majority of us are anticipating April 26th. The countdown is now on, not just for the final part of Avengers: Infinity War - but to see just how our favourite superheroes (the non-dusted variety) are going to resolve their Thanos - sized problem!

One of the (many!) reasons why the stories of MCU work, are because the audience actually care about the characters. The super powers, atom- blasts, the capes, hammers - that's all exciting theatrical extras - but the core of these characters are what resonant with us. And that's important, because if we don't care then WHAT IS THE MOTIVATION? WHY do they need to overcome their struggles? Without empathy from the audience in any story, you have nothing to work with. 

Today's post is exploring The Four Types of Love (derived from the ancient Greeks) -  depicted through Marvel characters and their relationships onscreen. 

Into The Script is going to show you a quick recap on what these types of love ARE and HOW they can be used/written in your projects!
