On the bleak landscape where the Tower stood, the Fool sits, empty, despairing. He hoped to find direction on this spiritual journey, a path to his spiritual self, but having just learned that most of his life was a lie, he now feels lost. Sitting on the cold stones, he gazes up at the night sky wishing for some kind of guide. And that is when he notices, nearby, a beautiful girl with two water urns. As he watches, she kneels by a pool of water illuminated with reflected starlight. She empties the urns, one into the pool, one onto the thirsty ground.
"What are you doing," he asks her. She looks up at him, her eyes twinkling like stars. "I am refilling this pool, so that those who are thirsty may drink, and I am also watering the earth so that more fruit trees will grow to feed those who are hungry." She nods back to a single fruit tree that stands nearby, a nightingale singing amid its branches.
"Come," she invites. "Sate your hunger and quench your thirst."
The Fool plucks some fruit from the tree, then kneels by her and drinks from the pool. The water tastes wonderful, like liquid starlight, and the fruit is equally delicious. Both help to heal his wounded heart.
Having quenched his thirst and sated his hunger, the Fool lays back to gaze up at the stars. “They’re so beautiful,” he said, “but so distant.”
"Like possible futures," agrees the girl. "Cool and distant. Yet if you keep one in sight, it can guide you to your destination no matter how far away it is." Even as she says this, she began to fade away, like dew, vanishing. All that remains is a gleam that was at the center of her forehead. This rises up and up, until it settles in the night sky as a shining star. "Follow your star," the woman’s voice seems to sing from that light, "and have hope."
The Fool takes in a breath and rises. It is a dark night, a desolate land. But for the first time, he has a guiding light to show him the way. Distant as it is, it restores his faith.

So, I’m not sure how many of you guys are familiar with this brand?
It’s called Touch Liit. It almost looks identical to that korean brand called Shinhan Touch, except that Touch Liit is made in China.
What’s also different from Touch,(and the well known japanese Copic Markers) is that Touch Liit is waaaay cheaper. While Copic and Touch prices are usually around 100-300 dollars (for bigger sets) Touch Liit is only 60 dollars for 60 piece. At least from this seller.
I mean yeah, they seem like a chinese knock-off, but I just tried out my own pieces, and they are totes okay so I don’t think it really that matters. I read somewhere, that in China people like to use this brand. The only thing that could be considered as a downside, is that they don’t seem to be refillable, otherwise, I think it’s a nice alternative.
The shop, where I bought mine seems reliable. I got my parcel after two-three weeks, including a free bag. The models are “semi-customizable” too, meaning that different type of colors are collected in one bag, and you can pick from the avaliable baggies. (Custom A, B, etc.) But you can also buy all the 168 piece for 150 dollars, wich is still a much better deal, considering for the same amount of money, you get less in the case of Copic or Shinhan.
So yeah, I just thought I’ll share this with you guys.

Japanese child actress Mana Ashida (little Mako) was embarrassed that she couldn’t pronounce Guillermo Del Toro’s name so he gave her special permission to call him “Totoro-san” instead.
