Ah Leon’s brilliant ceramic teapots and mug.
I AM IN LOVE.
anonymously i would love to travel with you i feel like you would be an excellent traveling buddy. where in the world would you want to go if you could?
thank you so much sweet anon!! i’d love to climb mountains and do difficult treks… i may be a city habitant but i can channel my inner mountain goat as needed too <3 i’m not one for beaches, it’s always the mountains i’m enthusiastic about
i’m going to be 80 years old and hunter x hunter will still have my peace of mind in a stranglehold. i’ll remember the line “gon. you are light. sometimes you shine so bright i must look away. but even so, is it okay if i stay by your side?” and my eyes will get misty and my grandchildren will say oh what’s wrong? and i’ll say. killua and gon loved each other… and were torn apart by the hurt and burdens they carried… but perhaps…. someday they’ll reunite…
may we have anime recs?
bonus: shows i Mean to watch because i suspect i’ll like them:
im not 17 anymore and i should find something new to talk about but remember when ophelia said “i hope all will be well” (4.5)
pain is stored in the shakespearean woman
this isn’t an original thought by any means but when shakespeare wanted to examine the depths and nuance of human suffering it was almost always most effective in his women. you got the articulate outbursts (oh god that i were a man i would eat his heart in the marketplace) (grief fills the room up of my absent child. have i not reason, then, to be fond of grief?) (the time was, father, that you broke your word) etc etc but tbh what gets me is how often they’re the ones to sorta metatextually admit that something’s unspeakable, which is a wild thing to do in a shakespeare play. romeo monologues in the sepulcher for a long time but juliet says “i’ll be brief”/lady macbeth can’t talk about it at all she sleeptalks and kills herself offstage/isabella’s told she’s getting married and never speaks again/ hamlet talks and talks and talks bc he’s convinced he can work it all out that way as if there’s something to understand about pain besides that it hurts, but she doesn’t try to explain her songs to anybody. unhappy that i am i cannot heave my heart into my mouth etc
i don’t like to share where i live online but i was in a mountainous region outside my usual city trekking around and i got this bottle of tulip flower honey from a roadside tribal store and…. my god… it is the best honey i’ve ever tasted… downright ambrosial… grocery store honey does not compare. this one tastes really nice when used in chai
sometimes your ties to friends are relaxed, long-term affairs where you don’t talk every day yet don’t doubt each other’s affection for each other… that’s a gift, in a way. thank you for being patient with me during my quiet era! i am trying to post at least a little every few days instead of deleting, which i definitely don’t want to do. anyway, i’m reading and writing more. trying to move forward. trying to flinch less. learning a lot about everything the less i talk.
i also turned my askbox back on <3 i may reply slowly to messages, but you can send them in ♡
