legend of the summer

Summer Nights (Zelink)

Summer in Hateno Village meant even the nights were too hot. Sleeping was definitely a difficult task, especially for Link when sleep often evaded him having learnt to survive on limited rest throughout his quest. They had to sleep without a blanket which Zelda was less than pleased to do so but even she admitted it was too hot with one.

“I feel so unprotected without a blanket.” she argued when Link suggested leaving it off for the summer.

“I’ll protect you.” Link said as he embraced her.

“You’re so cheesy,” she laughed and kissed him on his blushing cheek “but it’s adorable.”


The air was still and the night was silent as they settled down. Zelda was curled up against him, feet wrapped between his so they wouldn’t get cold. But it was still too hot and Link was restless. He climbed out of bed, and went to the kitchen in hopes of cooling down with a drink of water. After finishing a glass of not so cold water, Link felt small arms wrap around his waist from behind. He suddenly became very aware of how he had taken his top off in aim to cool down.

“Couldn’t sleep huh?” Zelda pressed a gentle kiss on to his back, causing his cheeks to turn that shade of pink she was oh so fond of.

“It’s the heat…” he managed to spit out, still very aware of his exposed back. He didn’t understand why he was still so flustered, they’d done worse things before. But she never failed to send butterflies into his stomach whenever they contacted, even after all this time. He turned around to face her as she brushed a stray hair out of his sweat ridden face and smiled up at him.

He pulled her into a tight embrace and she began humming a sweet song. They swayed slowly to the rhythm of the tune, oblivious to how the heat made them all sweaty and sticky. Suddenly, Link grabbed her hands and spun her around the kitchen, both laughing and singing quietly. The pace of their dance increased as their song got faster, both clumsily spinning around the small cottage. Zelda felt herself suddenly lifted up and spun around by Link who had picked her up bridal style. She rested her forehead against his as they stopped spinning. Noses almost touching each other and breathing heavily from the dancing.

“We should do this more often,” Zelda said between deep breaths, “maybe when it’s a lot cooler though.”

He gently kissed her forehead. “Definitely.

Sânziene aesthetic

Romanian folklore creatures series - II

Sânziană is the Romanian name for gentle fairies who play an important part in local folklore, also used to designate the Galium verum or Cruciata laevipes flowers. Under the plural form Sânziene, the word designates an annual festival in the fairies’ honor, celebrated on June 24.

The folk practices of Sânziene imply that the most beautiful maidens in the village dress in white and spend all day searching for and picking Galium verum (Lady’s bedstraw or Yellow bedstraw) flowers, which in Romanian is also named “Sânziànă”. Using the flowers they picked during the day, the girls braid floral crowns which they wear upon returning to the village at nightfall. There they meet with their beloved and they dance around a bonfire. The crowns are thrown over the houses, and whenever the crown falls, it is said that someone will die in that house; if the crown stays on the roof of the house, then good harvest and wealth will be bestowed upon the owners. As with other bonfire celebrations, jumping over the embers after the bonfire is not raging anymore is done to purify the person and also to bring health.

During the Sânziene Eve night, the heavens open up, making it the strongest night for magic spells, especially for the love spells. Also it is said that the plants harvested during this night will have tremendous magical powers.

Anime has taught us a lot over the years...

It’s prepared us for:

‘Sadness’

‘Goodbyes’

And ‘Death’

It’s taught us to:

‘Fight’

Educated us on the true meaning of:

‘Sacrifice’ 

‘Friendship’

‘Love’

And ‘Teamwork’

Most importantly, it reminds us that

 To be who we are

We are never alone

And to never give up

Fendi’s 90th anniversary show “Legends and Fairytales” held at the Trevi Fountain (Fontana di Trevi), Rome, last summer. The show’s inspiration came from the work of the Danish illustrator Kay Nielsen, and the collection of norse fairytales known as “East of the Sun and West of the Moon”, 1914. Sadly, the talented Kay Nielsen died poor and in obscurity in 1957, while his dreamy, delicate and intricate illustrations have regained popularity these recent years. Nielsen’s work belongs to the so called “golden age of illustration”, that is the early 20th century.
