Happy 2016!

Happy new year, all my friends! 🎇🎆🎊🎉

Last year went by so fast, and yet I’ve met quite a few new friends in the Candy Candy fandom. Some of them have been particularly supportive throughout the year. Their friendship, positive feedback and unflagging support have motivated me to keep this blog alive. ❤💕

According to the year-end summary I just received from WordPress, the number of views from visitors around the world in 2015 have doubled when compared to the number back in 2014. This is extremely encouraging to me, and I’d like to thank some of you:

  • Evelyn: you have written 254 comments last year, way ahead than everyone else! 😄 Incredible! 😍 I’ll draw you a picture as my appreciation for your loving support! I don’t know when I’ll get it done, but hopefully before St. Valentine’s day. 😘
  • QuevivaCandy: you have your hands full, but you still squeeze your time to translate Peculiar Relationship for me. 😘 Although I’ve given you two fanarts already, I have one more in mind near the end of the story. If possible, I’ll try to get that done around the time that particular chapter is published. ¡Muchas gracias! 😍
  • Antlay: how can I thank you enough? 😍 I know how terribly busy you are in real life, and yet you spent your precious spare time to translate my stories and sent me special gifts from time to time. 😘 For example, Antlay recently composed the following fanart, based on the manga and Candy Candy Final Story (CCFS):

New Year 2016 - Antlay

It’s so true, isn’t it? 😋😝 The ending of CCFS mirrored the manga ending, as explained in my earlier post, The day her life changed (Part 7).

In addition, Antlay drew a new fanart, and I’d like to share it with you all. Isn’t Albert hot and sexy? 😀 😆

I plan to color this drawing to thank Antlay for her friendship and thoughtfulness. 💋❤

I also like to thank Reeka, Brenda, Vera García, and Yue月 on Twitter. Please understand that I can’t name all of you wonderful friends on Twitter and/or Facebook, but once again, happy new year, everyone!

    Happy 2016 MsPuddle!!!

    Thank you a lot for all you have done in the Candy Candy world! I have learned a lot from you! and I really admired you and love the way you write, you know it.

    I really appreciate the fanarts you have given me and cannot believe you have another one in mind, but to be honest, I do not mind if you have more than one… LOL… just kidding, you know I do not do it because of that but your stories deserve to being translated to many languages. You really have a precious gift.

    About Antlay’s fanart and drawing, congrats Antlay, I really really like the fanart but the drawing… oh my, Albert looks so, so… mmm… so let it imagine… hahahaha

    Hugs to all you dear ladies, and wish you all a happy and blessed 2016!

    See you around! (hopefully more often!

    1. Muchas gracias mi querida amiga! Your words made me blush especially you’ve written a very long story, a successful one, yourself! 😘😍

      Yes, I have one in mind, but I won’t do it till the end… I don’t want to give spoilers lol 😆 Thank you once again for your kind words and compliments, my dear! 💗

      Yes, Antlay’s drawing of Albert is so sexy! I hope I can start coloring it soon 😆😃

      See you around too, QuevivaCandy! 😍

        Hola Quevivacandy

        Muchas gracias por sus cumplidos. Si Albert parece, como se dice, sexy, attractivo !

    Hello there, Ms Puddle! 🙂

    Happy New Year 2016 for you, my dear friend, and of course for all my fellow Albert-fans here. Candy Bert, Antlay, Evelyn, Brenda, QueVivaCandy, Vera, and others.

    I’ve been preoccupied with real life stuff that I really couldn’t have quiet time to come here to give comments. But now, holiday season was over, so I’m getting back to my routine. And it includes : Reading Candy Candy World blogs and catching up with some of fan fictions I’ve been following :D.

    Here, I want to thank you, Ms Puddle, for bringing some delights to me, to us, through out 2015. Especially for writing Peculiar Relationship and some series of topic on this blog of yours. I love you for those.

    Antlay,
    that’s a very beautiful fan art you made! I like the house! It suits my imagination of their house near Avon River in England. The land should be quite extensive with beautiful garden or probably little forest, but the house was pretty modest, not a huge one like their mansions in America. Good job, Antlay! And the other picture … 🙂 who doesn’t want to be hugged by those muscular arms, huh? LOL

    1. Bonsoir Reeka
      Merci beaucoup et ravie que cela vous ait plu. Tout comme vous j’imagine une demeure de style ” Maison de Maître ” dans CCFS, surtout si Candy et Albert ont quitté les États-Unis à cause du crash boursier de 1929, on sait que la demeure de Lakewood a été vendu, probablement qu’ils avaient besoin de liquidités. Alors j’ai cherché une photo de maison plus modeste au bord d’une rivière et arboré. J’ai trouvé celle-ci, il semble que cela soit paisible, moi-même je me verrai bien y vivre 😀 J’imagine Candy et Albert pêchait le saumon au bord cette rivière.
      Je vous adresse mes meilleurs voeux également ainsi qu’à toutes les lectrices.

      1. Dear Antlay, this brings up the question whether Albert and Candy left the United States and sold Lakewood because of the market crash. 🙄 In CCFS even the Leagans survived the crash I think, so the Ardlays might not have suffered too much either. They possibly sold Lakewood for other reasons? I don’t know… Just guessing. 😌

        Having said that, I still think your choice is great because it’s more like Albert’s taste… Like he preferred the Mountain Lodge by the waterfall. 😘😍

    2. Hello Reeka, it’s nice to hear from you again. I’ve been so tied up with other things as well and couldn’t find the time to even reply to comments! Sigh… 😅😆

      You’re very welcome, my friend. 😍 I did all these to entertain my imagination and brain as well as a stress relief. I’m so glad to have met you wonderful ladies in CC world. Without encouragement or support from you all, I don’t know if I would have done so much. 😄😋

      Yes, I forgot to mention I like the house dear Antlay picked too. It was neat and modest, so Candy and Albert! 😁😀 Of course, about her sexy drawing, who wouldn’t want to rest her cheek against the muscular chest? 😍😘😝😜

    Hi Ms.Puddle, thanks for your reply. About the manga I read, I think it was wikipedia, it was published in April 1975-1979. I honestly didn´t like CCF Anime as many people as well,but after reading the manga (not original)
    I like it very much! I guess after reading your posts I got the idea about Albert and Candy as a couple. Finally she had
    someone who really loved her. Don´t worry, maybe in April or later you could draw or write about 41 years. You´re right time flies! I suggest the Albert/Candy fun clubs would help and join this celebration! Off course it´s soon yet and it´s up to you. It´s just an idea I hope you don´t mind.
    Anyway, I am grateful to you and thanks again for your wonderful stories and time! Please send my regards to the other friends !

    1. Hola Brenda! Yes I remember the manga ended in 1979 😁 To this day, I still like the manga the best, then CCFS. I really don’t like anime as much as many people, but it does have its merits. 😃😄

      No sorry to disappoint you I don’t usually join the fun or celebration in other groups, which are mostly in Spanish. 😅 Perhaps you can post the link(s) for whoever is interested? 😊

      Thanks again for your eagerness, suggestions and support, my friend. I wish you a wonderful week ahead. 😍

    Hola Ms Puddle, than you for your reply. It´s amazing CCN anniversary is more or less 40 years since K. Mizuky wrote it!
    Besides, many fans around the world ´d celebrate it. I hope you´ll have the time to post something special and of course
    your beautiful drawings about our favourite couple ! Anyway, I don´t know when she exactly published it in japan/France.
    But for now, please enjoy your Sunday as well. Gracias mi amiga por su tiempo y cariño.

    1. Indeed, Brenda, how time flies by, right!? 😏 Sigh… I think the manga ended in 1979 (Japan)? It was also translated to other languages like French, Chinese, etc. 😀

      Sometimes I still can hardly believe CC fans aren’t satisfied with the story ending, not even the one in CCFS… Oh well… 😅😆

      I’ll try my best to find time to color or draw… I’ll see. Thank you Brenda for your encouraging words. 💖💗

    Ms. Puddle, I am so sorry I ‘ve made some mistakes! As you’ve got the original novel, I would like to know if Kyoko Mizuki said something about Albert´s birthday. We could find dates about the other characters as Candy, Annie, Archie…but how about him? Can you find out please? Thanks so much for your reply and time.

    1. Hola Brenda! As far as I know, Albert’s birthday is not mentioned in the novels. However, it’s known in the fandom that his birthday is June 28. I’ll try to find it out for you later. Have a wonderful Sunday! 😍💖
