Here's something really sappy I wrote. Criticisms and thoughts on improvement are appreciated.
I like you anon because summer is coming up, and with it long days in the sun.
I like the way your hair blows in the wind.
I like you because of how cute you look when you're tired. And how just looking at you makes me smile and sometimes laugh.
Right now you are physically beautiful, with strong legs and limber limbs. But one day you won't be able to flip and twirl marvellously around. You won't be able to push your body like you do now. And the mere idea of even jumping 1.40m will seem unfathomable.
When this day comes, your youthful body will remain only a memory. It is a shame that something so beautiful can be so fleeting, but it is what make us human. And it makes time all the more precious.
Don't you want to share your energy and the prime of your life now with someone? Even if it is only a short period, like a summer fling, you will always be able to look at fun memories. And doing so, you'll know that someone else is thinking of you too. Thinking of you as your are now in eternal young adulthood. So have fun and play with me sometime anon.

Hi /lit/, I have a question for you. i have a four tome collection of the Arabian Nights, but I feel them kind of childish and not so well written as they should be. The compiler/translator is Margarita rodriguez Acero.
I wanted to know which compiler/translator would you recommend.
Btw, I know Mardrus's and Galland's are some of the best, But those are really hard to get, so if you can put some relatively new ones or links to it, that would be great.
Also I speak spanish, english and french, so originals in those languages get extra points.
Thanks a lot in advance.
