We've seen the photos. We quivered in our boots over the video. For all intents and purposes, Emma will be going evil as the Dark Swan in the new season of Once Upon a Time - but not quite yet! "Episode 1, season 5, she is not the Dark One," co-star Robert Carlyle explains. "Maybe she becomes that, but at this point, she's trying to get rid of it. After the darkness within Rumple (Carlyle) was accidentally set free in the season finale, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) decided to sacrifice herself for the town and become the new Dark One, aka Dark Swan. But as executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis previously told EW, Emma is still fighting to stay good when the show returns - though it's clear that's a losing battle based on the aforementioned photos and video." Before she's surrendered to it and given into it, the good part of her is fighting with this darkness that is consuming her and it's a constant struggle that's really angsty and intense," Morrison says. But once she goes full-on evil, it's a whole different story.
39; I thought, what a cool image, the idea of being free of gravity.
"In the surrender to the actual darkness, not necessarily the journey and the fight to try to stay light, she's pretty different. I started by looking at all of her opposites, looking at everything that was opposite of what Emma stood for and opposite of what we've seen of her and trying to look at what that would mean."Emotionally, it's interesting because there's something really fun and free about Emma in the darkness, where she's just free of the gravity of what other people think and the gravity of worrying about saving people," the actress continues. "There's a lightness, in a sense, in her darkness, because she doesn't have to do the right thing and she doesn't have to try to be the stronger, better person all the time. In inhabiting this character, Morrison keeps a quote from her former House co-star Hugh Laurie in mind. "He said, 'When you ride a motorcycle, you feel like you're flying. When you fly, you're free of gravity. I feel like that represented House because House was free of the gravity of what other people thought.' I thought, what a cool image, the idea of being free of gravity. I just kept going back to him saying that in my mind about Dark Emma. "In addition to that, there are swans that can fly for a certain distance, and there are certain black swans that can fly for 60 feet," she says. "Eddy, Adam and I have talked about looking at this as her 60 feet of flight.
Instead of looking at this as, 'I'm trying to be mean, dark and evil,' it's about the absoluteness of her freedom from responsibility in the darkest way you can imagine. She's completely selfish and she's completely free of her responsibility. She is completely indulgent in her sensuality and her confidence and her demand for things in life. We're building her from that place. To get into the mindset of evil, Morrison spent much of the hiatus doing research. "The New York Public Library was amazing," she says. "A couple of the curators there pulled tons and tons of research of the psychology of certain fairy tales, some of the older more obscure fairy tales that we wouldn't necessarily have in a normal storybook nowadays. There's some really great parallels for Emma. I looked at a lot of research about swans in general and just tried to pull little things from mythology, and from fairy tales, and psychology of fairy tales to have a well of things to pull from. have aided Morrison in getting into character, Morrison says the process of suiting up as the Dark Swan has also helped. "Obviously, I've had the luxury of jumping in and out of jeans and t-shirts for the last four years, so it is a whole different thing to have something a little bit more extravagant and to be painted white and all that stuff," she says.

7 Simple Facts About Manga Explained
Futaro is promptly hired as a highly paid tutor. However, much to Futaro's dismay, he discovers that his five charges-identical quintuplet sisters of varied personalities-have no interest in studying at all and have abysmal grades. Some of the quintuplets are against having Futaro, whom they view as a stranger, in their apartment, but Futaro's diligent tenacity gradually convinces those girls to accept him and to improve their grades. Throughout the series, Futaro develops special relationships with each of the quintuplets. Through a flashforward, it is revealed that he eventually marries one of them, but her true identity is only revealed near the end of the series. The idea of "a group of quintuplets falling in love with the same person" existed even before the serialization of Haruba's previous work, Karma of Purgatory (2014-2015), but was very simple at that time. The idea was denied by his editor-in-charge. A year after, after the end of Karma of Purgatory, he discussed with his editor-in-charge what to serialize next.
It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning.
Among the few ideas being come up with, the "quintuplets" idea was included again, which was accepted by the editor this time. After failures in two to three serialization committees, finally, it was decided to have a one-shot manga published first. The one-shot received positive reviews and therefore went on to serialization. It was decided the protagonist should be quintuplets at the very beginning. When later the idea of quadruplets and sextuplets was raised, it was rejected very quickly, around 30 seconds. Haruba said it might be a reference to Super Sentai when he came up with this idea. Similar to Super Sentai, Ichika (yellow), Nino (black), Miku (blue), Yotsuba (green), and Itsuki (red) are all represented by a color. The design of the quintuplets started from his favorite existing female characters from "some slice-of-life works only with girls", around 15 to 20 of them. The idea of adding numbers in their names was after the design was almost confirmed.
The hair color of the Nakano quintuplets is different when being colored, which was suggested by Haruba himself, such that they are more distinguishable from each other. The hair color of the bride in the flashforward is, therefore, a colour-in-between. The flashforward showing that Futaro will eventually marry only one of the Nakano quintuplets was added in order to eliminate the possibility of Futaro marrying all five of them. It was also decided that all quintuplets would have negative feelings towards Futaro from the beginning, because Haruba wanted to write how their relationships improved from hate to love in the story, except Yotsuba, who acts as Futaro's guide for the development of the story. While it is often the norm for harem romantic comedy manga to have sexualized depictions of characters, Haruba has said that he tried to avoid this to some extent after Vol. In his opinion, showing panties which are being worn, ieTo keep the characters interesting, the sexy scenes were intended by him to be ambiguous but not straightforward, leading to readers' imagination.
