Many of my movies have strong female leads - brave, self-sufficient girls that don’t think twice about fighting for what they believe in with all their heart. They’ll need a friend, or a supporter, but never a savior. Any woman is just as capable of being a hero as any man.” - Hayao Miyazaki

Sorry this post is so long (open images in new window for better quality, tumblr apparently decided to butcher them :().

I don’t really have proper words for this thing, just that it’s about something very important in my life, and after ten years, I’m glad I could finally write this.

Magnus is a great opportunity for the chess world to evolve a little bit : he’s young, he’s charismatic, and he’s got a great public image. I’m really glad that he won, even though his opponent (Vishy Anand) is a fantastic and lovable player as well. 

I know this “letter” will not reach him, but it wasn’t really written for him. For other players, yes, I guess? I’m sad that I don’t have much friends left in chess so I can’t give that to the community. So this is for you, comics/illustration lovers from tumblr <3

Thanks a lot to Martin and Valerie who helped me translate it <3 All mistakes are mine, though, since I changed the text so much!
