Happy Birthday, Louis Auchincloss, born 27 September 1917, died 26 January 2010
Nine Quotes
Society matters not so much. Words are everything.
A man can spend his whole existence never learning the simple lesson that he has only one life and that if he fails to do what he wants with it, nobody else really cares.
Only little boys and old men sneer at love.
Perfection irritates as well as it attracts, in fiction as in life.
A neurotic can perfectly well be a literary genius, but his greatest danger is always that he will not recognize when he is dull.
A lot of writers … sit in a log cabin by the lake and put their feet up by the fire in the silence and write. If you can have that that’s all very well, but the true writer will learn to write anywhere — even in prison.
Great lovers have made great sacrifices.
It’s very rare that a character comes to mind complete in himself. He needs additional traits that I often pick from actual people. One way you can cover your tracks is to change the sex.
Your literary style reflects your personality.
Auchincloss was an American lawyer, novelist, historian, and essayist. He is best known as a novelist who explored the experiences and psychology of American polite society and old money.

I’M NOT EMOTIONALLY PREPARED TO WATCH THIS SERIES AFTER READING THE MANGA!! I DON’T CARE THAT IT’S BEEN MONTHS SINCE I READ THE MANGA!! I’M NOT PREPARED TO SEE EVERYTHING ANIMATED!! I’M NOT PREPARED!!

This is the most accurate portrayal of blind box collecting ever.

FACT. These blind boxes have been debunked. :3 a fur friend had shared with me his technique.

If you’re planning on collecting anything, check the package’s bar code. It’ll always be different of its a different model/figure. If its the same, it’s a duplicate.

This only works on hand, obviously. Buying online is as blind as you can get. Also if its anything not plastic it could break in the mail. D:

((THIS IS VERY HELPFUL))

Sokai week! 

A Moment that Kairi Talks about Sora: "No… Sora’s in danger because of me."

I just always found this scene interesting, how Saix says “You’re the fire that feeds Sora’s anger.” and I think it’s really the first time Kairi realizes that she can be used against him. She’s seen the drawing in the secret place, so I think it’s fairly obvious she’s aware of his feelings. Kairi doesn’t want to be the reason for Sora getting hurt  

She of course doesn’t happen a weapon yet, but I think this scene is going to be a huge motivator for her to make sure she is always able to defend herself so a situation like this can never happen again.
