THE SUN - SOLAIRE OF ASTORA

Upright: Fun, warmth, success, positivity, vitality

Reversed: Temporary depression, lack of success

The Sun represents success, radiance and abundance. The Sun gives you strength and tells you that no matter where you go or what you do, your positive and radiant energy will follow you and will bring you happiness and joy. People are drawn to you because you can always see the bright side and you bring such warmth into other people’s lives. This beautiful, warm energy is what will get you through the tough times and will help you succeed. You are also in a position where you can share your highest qualities and achievements with others. Radiate who you are and what you stand for. Shine love on those you care about.

The Sun is a ‘yes’ to life! It brings with it luck, wellness, positive consciousness, enthusiasm, attainment and success. It is about embracing your destiny and giving it everything you have got. If you have been having a difficult time, the Sun brings you the message you have been waiting for – that things are going to get better – a lot better! You know that the rain clouds will soon give way to the rays of the sun and you will feel warmed to the soul once again.

The Sun card is the card I was most looking forward to paint, not because I’d get a chance to paint our boy Solaire, but also ‘cause of what it represents. It represents joy, happiness, and having hopes and dreams. I wanted to share the positivity of this card with everyone, and maybe bring a smile to your face, as a reminder for all of us to try and stay optimistic. Of course things won’t always go smoothly, at some point we’ll need a Solaire to carry us through dark times, or we may even be a Solaire to a friend or family member. After all, what would our journey be like without jolly cooperation?

The prize is the above sticker of Solaire dressed as a ghost.

Have a holly jolly Christmas card photo that I drew at 1:30 in the morning last Wednesday

I wanted to try and re-draw the image I had last year, the bench in my Animal Crossing town that I had lovingly named “The Anxiety Bench”. It was where I couldn’t sleep at night, so I left my DS open and watched the sky and let the soothing songs of 1 AM lull me to sleep. It hasn’t been used as much this year, but I still find myself here kicking my feet away from time to time. A quiet place away from all my worries, and soft songs as I look up at the always changing sky.

I know its not as bright and cheery as other cards, but more of that quiet place we all might need after how this year has been.

Merry Christmas/Hanukkah/Festivus to all!

GILMORE GIRLS REVIVAL - WHY I DIDN’T LIKE IT


Ok, deep breath, let’s do this. (Wow, it’s like when I watched the HIMYM Finale, oh my God).

So, I didn’t like the Revival. I just didn’t. I mean, I thought the purpose of it was fixing things that needed to be fixed, ie L/L’s wedding, Rory finding whatever her way was, etc. And all of that didn’t happen. Or some things DID happen but not in the way I expected them to.

First of all, what I hated the most: Rory.
I’m sorry but who the hell was that? Because sure as hell it wasn’t Rory Gilmore. I know she couldn’t be the perfect angel she was in the first 3 seasons of the show, and I liked the fact she was also flawed, but one thing is showing her flaws and weaknesses, and another is destroying her character. And the Revival did just that. I’m not gonna lie, after the Dean business in S4 and her relationship with Logan, I ended up not liking her that much. I thought she became another person completely, but at least in S7 she seemed to getting back on track. Then the Revival happened and what the hell? She had a boyfriend everyone always forgot about (and yes, at first the “who’s Paul?” gag was funny but they dragged it for 4 episodes and became annoying and I felt sorry for him, because he was such a sweet guy), she cheated on him repeatedly with Logan, who was… in a serious relationship with another person? And the worst thing, the thing that disgusted me, is that both Logan and Rory didn’t feel bad about it. They just didn’t care about their partners. Like… wow. Why didn’t they break up with their partners and got back together if they couldn’t stay away from each other like that? Why did Logan remain engaged to the girl he was in a relationship with and was still going to marry her? Why was Rory okay with the whole thing? What was Paul’s role? Why did Rory need to sleep with Logan if she was already in another relationship? And on top of that, she had a one night-stand with a random guy in a wookie costume, while still with Paul… and Logan? W H Y. And what was all that mess about her career? I didn’t understand a damn thing.

Jesus, the immaturity of Rory baffled me to no end. She seemed more mature when she was 16 than now.  She had no respect for the people that sorrounded her, she had no dreams, no goals, she is now a cheater, a selfish, heartless woman. I don’t like characters like that. She had no control over her life and she ended up pregnant with Logan’s child. Are you serious? “It ended full circle” my ass, sorry. Just because Lorelai had a child with the wrong guy, that doesn’t mean Rory had to follow the same route. In the last episode of S5, when Lorelai was telling Luke about Rory dropping out of Yale, she said: “she should have had more than me. She should have had everything”. Because Rory wasn’t supposed to be the copy of Lorelai. She was supposed to follow her path. Yeah, definitely what happened. Right.

But let’s move on. Let’s talk about Jess Mariano for a moment. Once again, Jess was the jolly card for Rory to use in case of need. In S6 he convinced her to go back to Yale, and in the Revival he convinced her to write a book. And what did he have in return? Nothing. As usual. The show wasted 15 minutes on that pointless musical thing (literally WHY) while Jess had like three/four brief scenes in 2 episodes? Logan was there for 4 episodes doing basically nothing but I didn’t get to see Jess more than 30 seconds for scene? And don’t get me started on the face he made while watching Rory during his last scene because it broke my heart. He didn’t deserve that. He turned out to be an amazing guy, and Rory definitely doesn’t deserve him. I’m sorry, Literati is one of my biggest OTPs, but I don’t even care at this point if they will end up together in the future because he’s “her Luke” or whatever. Jess needs to be with someone who truly loves him, and that someone is not Rory.

Now, since I’m talking about OTPs, I have to mention Paris & Doyle. Someone please, PLEASE, explain WHY Amy decided to ruin them. They were the ultimate power couple, they were in love, they were stable, why did she do that? What was the purpose?

L/L’s wedding. Oh boy. Ooooh boy. Like, are you freaking kidding me? All I wanted to see was Lorelai with her beautiful bridal dress, Emily walking her down the aisle, Rory as her Maid Of Honor, Jess as Luke’s Best Man, and all their families and friends invited. And what did Amy do, instead? An eloping? With no vows, Michel, Lane (oh, Lane… I’m so sorry they didn’t give justice to your character. AGAIN) and Rory only, while Emily was drinking alone in the garden? WHAT? 9 YEARS OF WAITING… FOR THAT? And how was it even possible that Luke and Lorelai waited so long to get married, c'mon.

Also, The episodes were slow, heavy and Spring and Summer were unbearable to watch. 90 minutes were definitely too much. Amy, I get it. You wanted to do like Sherlock (by the way, one of the things I liked was the “Sherlock is gay?” thing, thanks for that), but you failed miserably.  Too ambitious, maybe?

Anyway, the ending of S7 was better than the ending of the Revival, imo. It made sense, with Lorelai and Luke together and Rory finding her first job as journalist. A good ending doesn’t need to be extremely shocking to be a good one. I’d just love for the writers to realize that.
