Manuscript of “The Diary”

I’ve been quieter than usual lately because I’m not feeling well. Don’t worry though, because I’m getting slightly better. 🙂 Besides, a message from Antlay actually cheered me up! She got the first chapter of “The Diary” complete, using the manuscript from my late friend mentioned in an earlier post Someone Help in French as a major reference. “The Diary” is mainly my imagination …

Invisible threads, again!

I haven’t heard of this quote before until just recently: “Invisible Threads are the Strongest Ties”, a quote by the famous philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche  (1844-1900). I read that he had meant that threads of love and friendship, though undetectable (invisible), could tie you to someone just as much as a sturdy rope. In fact, this quote is …

Wildflowers on the way to Lakewood

According to Candy’s last letter to Albert In the epilogue of Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS), Albert took Candy to Lakewood for a day trip (considering that he had to pick her up from Pony’s Home and then drive her back). This is what Candy wrote in her letter to Albert after the trip (from spoilers): It was a …

“Dear Enemy” by Jean Webster

Warning: this post contains spoilers to “Dear Enemy”, the sequel to “Daddy-Long-Legs” by the same author. I finally finished reading the book. Initially, I didn’t like it as much as I like its prequel, but after reading about one-third, I must say I started enjoying the voice of Sallie McBride, the best friend of Judy Abbott from “Daddy-Long-Legs”. …

Second farewell

Just recently, I came across a long article that blamed Albert for depriving Candy of seeing Terry when the actor had been feeling regretful and numbing himself with drinks. I believe many Candy Candy fans who had only watched the anime version probably have similar opinions, which is a pity. I really don’t understand why the anime adaptation has replaced the Rockstown episode in the …

A generous present

Remember Judy Abbott and Master Jervie from “Daddy-Long-Legs” by Jean Webster? Judy grew up in an orphanage just like Candy, and it was called John Grier Home. Unlike Pony’s Home though, John Grier Home was in much more miserable conditions, and the lady in charge was cold and stern. Hence, Judy loathed going back to John Grier …

My coloring project (3)

I can hardly believe I have already colored three of my friend Antlay’s drawings! Thanks, Antlay, for giving me the freedom to choose the colors and background for her drawings! I appreciate it. 🙂 This time, I took the liberty and imagined Albert standing in the brightly lit solarium, the moment when Candy discovered his true …

Warning to repudiate his son

The day after posting about the unlikelihood of Terry inheriting his birth father’s property in Love Triangle (Part 5), I double checked the manga and found some evidence to support my arguments. First, Terry’s father, the Duke of Grantchester, went to his son’s room in the dormitory of St. Paul’s Academy and informed Terry that his birth …
