Her foreshadowing and dedication is superb. The chapter 32 cover is Real Ciel holding a flower crown that you can see here:
And in chapter 130, we see the exact same image of Real Ciel holding a flower crown but it was for Our Ciel as it was shown at the end of the chapter. This chapter debuted on April 18th, 2009. She waited almost ONE HUNDRED chapters and over EIGHT YEARS to reveal what this image actually meant. Her foreshadowing throughout the entire manga is just amazing. I’m not saying her writing is perfect, as I do have a few problems such as how Sebastian as a demon really works and sometimes her pacing is WAY too slow, but her dedication to this series is something that MUST be admired. She’s waited almost ELEVEN years to reveal such a huge plot twist for a series that has been lying to you for a decade. And that is something that must be praised.
The long wait for Wonder Woman
and female superheroes to get the spotlight is almost over, and if the
first reactions are any indication, patience has been rewarded.
Following the critical failure of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Suicide Squad, DC and fans will be delighted that Patty Jenkins’ film is being hailed as a “blast,” “so good,” and by a great majority, the
best to date from the DC Extended Universe. Also receiving widespread
praise is Wonder Woman herself, with Gadot described as “absolutely
phenomenal” and “a legit movie star.”
It’s Mother’s Day and the first thing Kara sees when she walks into Lena’s office to check up on her is dozens of different bouquets on every available surface.
Which would be normal if Lena had a normal relationship with her mother. And if the bouquets were the really expensive kind that Kara had gotten used to associating with Lena. But no, these weren’t expensive flowers at all. They were just normal flowers, the kind someone would find in their yard or at the park. One was even made up completely of dandelions!
Questions float through Kara’s head that were supplied with very few answers.
Who sent them? Why? Were they safe? Should see get them checked out?
And then her confusion is cut off by Jess walking into the office.
“They’re from local orphanages,” Jess answers before Kara even asks. “She’s always donating to them and volunteers whenever she can. She’d adopt them all if she could, but with the attempted murders… well.”
“I- I didn’t know about that.” Kara didn’t even know that Lena liked kids.
“Most people don’t,” Jess replies easily. “Her meeting is almost over, so feel free to wait here for her.”
And then Jess leaves and Kara’s left alone with her thoughts.
She always knew Lena was good, so good. Too good, maybe. She was just glad others could see it, too.

Sakura threw a glance back over her
shoulder to find a massive wave of water heading straight toward her. It was
sizzling with electricity. Her heart rammed against her rib-cage as sickening
realisation dawned upon her. If it touched her, she’d die. She needed to get to
higher ground! But the water was already cascading down faster than her
worn-out legs could carry her, and there was no way she could climb high enough
before the torrent was absorbed by the earth.
hand suddenly clamped tightly around her left arm, its hold as unbreakable as
steel. In a single jerk, Sakura was yanked forcefully backwards. She tripped
over a vine and lost her footing, her eyes turning up just in time to clash
with blazing crimson. Her heart thundered chaotically, its beat as erratic as
the multitude of panicked thoughts that hurtled through her mind. Before she
could even attempt to recover, she felt an arm close around her waist, her feet
leave the ground, and the next thing she was conscious of was her back slamming
roughly against the trunk of a tree. The air fractured cleanly in her lungs and
stars swam momentarily across her vision. When the haze cleared, she met a
baleful glare, finding Sasuke’s eyes narrowing hatefully at her. His hand was
closed around her throat in a firm – but not painful – hold.
The cold fury Sakura saw glinting within those striking, blood-shot irises was
enough to freeze the blood in her veins. It finally made the reality of her
situation hit home, of what would inevitably happen to her when Sasuke finally
got his hands on her without hindrance.
But he just saved me, she thought dazedly.
He took me off the ground, away from the
Somehow his unexpected gesture was
even more frightening than his wrath.
“Why?” Sakura’s voice shook unsteadily,
as Sasuke’s grip on her throat tightened slightly. “Why are you helping me?!”
she cried angrily. “After everything I’ve done to you-!” Her words choked off,
the air fleeing her lungs. Fresh tears blurred her vision as she continued to
stare into his eyes. They weren’t just furious, she recognised.
They were exhausted. Disorientated
from the venom she could clearly see was still ravaging his bloodstream.
Fighting to remain focused.
He was hurt.
“Sasuke-” she began hoarsely.
“Shut up,” the death deity
began to hiss, his barely-composed tone revealing the true extent of his
underlying ire, and Sakura wondered why he would bother getting her to safety
when everything about his expression and tone suggested that he was about to
sever her life right there and then. “You’re-”
The whistling sound of a blade slicing through the air caused the Death God to
tense and abandon what he had been about to say. With a snarl, he shoved Sakura
to the side, seconds before the trunk she’d been thrown against was splintered
by an alarmingly broad sword. Sasuke skidded back, his eyes training fleetingly
onto Sakura, who had managed to land safely on a lower branch, before turning
furiously onto the person who dared to intervene.
Suigetsu, who had caught up to them again, flashed a mischievous grin, hoisting
his sword back onto his right shoulder as he landed in front of Sakura.
“I know they say women like it rough, but you just go overboard, don’t
you?” he mocked. “I don’t think Pinky over here appreciates the way you handle
Sasuke’s withering glower was full of such contempt and malice, Sakura was
certain that any mortal man would surely have shrivelled into a pulp on the
spot. Suigetsu, however, looked unperturbed. Like he was relishing every second
spent provoking the Underworld’s ruler.
“Move,” Sasuke uttered frostily, as he swung down to join them on the

Heart pounding. Head throbbing. Legs wobbly. Sight blurry. Body tired. And a fire burning inside your lungs, or at least that’s what it feels like.
The sun is about to reach it’s peak, in the middle of the sky, like the star on top of the christmas tree. It’s starting to get really warm as well, at least that’s what you think as you try to push forward, try to complete the task.
You have no idea where you are. You’re completely encircled by trees, that look exactly the same to you, except for ’the road’ that just never seemed to end. You briefly wondered if you even took the right direction, but you quickly concluded that it was unlikely that you didn’t, and that the thought was too scary to think of right now.
