I'm not sure if I'm really proud of any of my cels
-- I love them all dearly, that goes without
saying, but it's not like they're something that I
I think it would be more accurate to say that some
of my cels are more special to me than others, for
just the reasons that you mention in your post.
Cels from fondly remembered scenes, cels which
were received as gifts, cels which made me hop
around squealing because the price was so
ridiculously good, cels I searched for, and
searched for, and searched for, and finally,
miraculously, found -- these all have very special
places in my binder and heart.
And I think it's safe to state that none fit that
classification more than this one.
They say that if you love something, set it free,
and if it comes back, it's yours -- but I kind of
figured that only applied to cats, teenage males,
and other creatures of notoriously fickle
affection. Never would I have expected it to
apply to a Gundam Wing dream cel.
I will happily starve in the streets before ever
letting this beauty out of my grasp again. And
there is somebody out there with whom I seriously
need to get even. Ohhhhhh, yes... someday I shall
find a way...
