Coraline "Coraline" Langerfelt is a fictional character in the film[a][a][a][c] Coraline. She is a main character of the Coraline movie series and its spin-off webcomic[b][b][b][b][b] Coraline: Going Slightly Mad. In the first movie, she plays a pivotal role in the plot as the main character traverses the dimensions, being delivered by her parents to an alternate reality populated with anthropomorphic furniture, friendly and unfriendly. In the spin-off, she plays a more active role alongside her friends Bilby and Steggo in their quest to find the soul of a girl named No-Face, whom they believe is being tormented by her own death. To help them on their quest, they recruit the reluctant Unjil, her "spirit guide", who becomes agitated when their mission is disrupted by a series of events called "The Creeping" orchestrated by the malevolent witch Clothilde. She is drawn as a young girl with blonde ringlets, pigtails, a red bow, and a pair of red glasses, wearing a red turtle-neck sweater, short red skirt, and black tights. Her alternate reality is colored red, with the sun being a special rendition of Santa Claus's red-nosed reindeer. Coraline bears a resemblance to vampy fantasy movies such as Darkness. Her relationship with Clothilde is modeled after the relationship between housewives Florence and Timmy Henson in Hellraiser and their daughter Katharine.
The Duchine or duchinoise pasta is a family of pasta shapes, distinguished by their unique appearance and to varying degrees of popularity. The shape is similar to the hollow, tubular tagliatelle with a slightly rounded cylinder of spaghetti. It is typically of the same length and diameter as long neck pasta, but slightly wider near the bottom and narrower at the top; the shape is similar to that of a half-hollowed egg or an oblong candle. The name duchine is French for "duck" because of the shape. d2c66b5586
