the reason why some of us fall in love with fictional characters is because we learn every little aspect of them. we learn about them inside and out; their personalities, their little quirks and habits, their thoughts, their past, and their deepest darkest secrets. we find traits in them that remind us, of us, and those we love in the real world.
some of us turn to these characters for comfort. it might not be direct comfort, but it does help. personally, i find comfort in my favorite characters from watching them growing and overcoming their hardships. oddly enough, it gives me the motivation and faith that i’ll overcome mine.
whether we come to find love for a character from an anime, manga, movie, book, video game, cartoon show, or a real show, we learn so much about them that they feel real to us.
Lately I have had a minor obsession with scouring YouTube for glimpses of the magnificent Cheshire Cat from the Royal Ballet's Alice in Wonderland. Most of the above gifs come from here but the top one comes from here. You can also see the cat going to pieces here.
Even if I can’t see. Even if I can’t hear. I have light inside me. The path I walked with my friends, is bringing light to my future. I don’t fear anything! This isn’t even worthy of being called pain! The worst pain is… The pain of losing your light. Happy birthday Rai! ♥
Energetic carnivores, long-tailed weasels spend most of the daylight hours scouring grasslands, pastures and saltmarsh for prey. Their slender heads and bodies allow them to enter burrows in search of mice, voles, snakes and large insects. The sharp teeth, keen eyesight and scrappy character of long-tailed weasels make them highly skilled predators, able to catch animals bigger than themselves. In mid-summer, whole families of weasels may be seen as males and females teach their young to hunt.
