anonymous asked:

what is the story behind the stone Obi is holding in that chapter 86 snipped? does is have some relation to shirayuki or shirayuki and zen? ( sorry i only watched the anime till now)

Hey, Nonny! Good question. We’ll try not to spoil things too much for you, because the manga is great, we’ve had some great arcs lately and you should totally read it all!

So Obi first gets the stone when he heads out on a mission. Shirayuki gives it to him and says simply this:

Right afterwards, we’re treated to this silent but very beautifully-drawn goodbye:

We’re not shown what Shirayuki actually gave him until later, when Obi uses it to fool an assassin he’s fighting:

This is an Olin Maris stone - a stone that Obi and Shirayuki discovered together while they were in a region called Lyrias in the thirty-something chapters. It glows in the dark, which is why Shirayuki said Obi could read by it if he needed to. If I remember correctly, Shirayuki turned this small specimen into a necklace an arc or two ago.

The next time we see it, Mitsuhide - who’s in some danger and currently in a cell - has it:

So it appears that Obi got the stone to him somehow? Maybe for assurance or comfort, since it glows. So that’s why, in the new snippet, Mitsuhide digs it out from the folds of his shirt and returns it to Obi, who then seems to start wearing it around his neck (I think). 

That’s literally all we’ve been shown about this stone so far! It’s pretty easy to give it some poignant meaning, since Olin Maris is something that Obi and Shirayuki discovered together initially, and also since it can provide comfort and glow in the dark. It also saves Obi’s life in his fight with the assassin, and since it’s something that Shirayuki gave to him, that could lend it some meaning.

Thanks for the ask! Hopefully this cleared some things up for you. :)


Moss Specimen Necklaces!

Each contains a little specimen of moss, hand harvested (sustainably) from the local New England forests and preserved in a little bit of high quality epoxy resin. Each one is super unique and hand crafted with care and consideration.

I just wanted to post this because I wanted to announce that at the time of this posting, there is more than enough time to order one as a holiday gift for a nature lover in your life, or just as a gift to yourself, because you deserve it. I just collected a full haul of moss this morning and I’m ready to create some pieces!
