Cardcaptor Sakura: Black Cat Sakura 

The other picture I’ve known of for years & also sourced from the 20th Anniversary art book, this time Sakura-chan is black kitty. This also happens to be one of my favorite costumes of her from the series. In fact, I even own a doll with this costume. None else can make super cute and stylish cat girls like CLAMP does, am I right or am I right? Right. Another one for “Cat Month” and the opposite of White Cat Sakura.

Look, Zack… You’ve tried so hard to give me my dream wedding. But my real dream is to have a husband who would do anything in his power to make me happy. And that’s you. I love you, Kelly. I love you, too. 

Sono una ragazza che si illude facilmente. Basta un messaggio, un sorriso, un abbraccio, un momento. Io alle persone ci credo, sbagliando. Credo ai loro sorrisi, spesso finti. Credo alle loro parole, spesso false. Ai loro messaggi, spesso inutili. Io credo, per poi rimanere delusa.
Aveva la mente incasinata..come la metropolitana alle 7 del mattino, ma era così apparentemente tranquilla.
Non sapeva cosa dire, non sapeva cosa pensare..
Era così strana e così complicata che veniva considerata “irraggiungibile” da tutte le persone che la circondavano.
Era lunatica, forse un po’ troppo, ma possedeva quel tocco di femminilità che rendeva il tutto estremamente elegante.
Voleva qualcuno, aspettava una persona che le spegnesse quell'inferno che aveva nella testa, ma forse era troppo orgogliosa persino per ammettere che nonostante tutto, nonostante il tempo e le delusioni, esisteva veramente “qualcuno” al mondo che sarebbe stato anche in grado di abbattere quei muri che lei per tanto tempo aveva costruito attorno a se.

“Do you think candy jewelry will be fun for the party? Mary Margaret Nolan asked. “Not boring or uncool?” Emma’s mother tapped her fingers on the glass display case as she flipped through Belle’s cake catalog. “It’s so hard to keep pace with what children like these days—even the young ones like Bae and Emma.”

“Mrs. Nolan, I have it on good authority that homemade sweets never go out of style,” Belle said. With a fond smile, she gestured to the framed photograph of her mother hanging on the back wall of the shop. Mama had taught Belle everything she knew about making candy. If only she could see her now, running her own store!

“I’ll make something special—fit for a princess,” Belle promised. “Emma’s birthday party will be the talk of Storybrooke and the perfect event to kick off a new school year.”
