Sometimes the most beautiful tales come from unexpected and highly overlooked corners …

Well I’m in love … Osozaki no Himawari has recently ended airing in Japan and what a little lovely, underrated, charming drama this is. Lots of beautiful landscape shots and very good cast and characters.

Smoked too many cigarettes today, cried too many times so I’m exhausted. Written after I have re-watched the last ep RAW. After the live streaming, my mind was too jumbled, too exhausted to form any coherent thoughts, but now I’m calmer, more collected. Something I couldn’t forget though was Choi Young’s voice over while Eun Soo went back through the gate. So I wrote the following.

Beware vignette contains spoilers for the last minutes of EP24 of Faith

Wrote this for today’s word prompt of NaNoWriMo


She asked me to forget about her. She made me promise to forget about her, that I should live well when she is gone. But how can I do this when every day, every hour, every breath is still filled with memories of her?

When I walk through the palace halls, I can hear her voice in the distance.

When I come across our pagoda in the RoyalGardens, I can see her standing inside waiting for me.

How can I live well when I know that we are not only divided by distance but also by time and space as well?

I remember that she once asked me if I cannot go with her. I did not answer her although I wanted to answer her in the affirmative. I wanted to shout, yes, I want to go with you. I want to see your world, your Heavens again. But I remained silent. I knew the King needed me. The nation needed me. That the king counted on me to keep his enemies at bay. What I didn’t count on was the fact that I needed you more. That every memory of you makes me both miserable and happy at the same time.

Imja are you there? Can you – by some heavenly intervention – hear my words?

No, of course not. I’m just a memory to you, just as you are a memory to me. When you think of me, in your place, I will already be long gone. Just a memory in the annals of history. A memory inside your heart.




Keep me up at night;

As the Fangirl Rants.
