@astrocitosart DTIYS Challenge ● My second time to join one of these! Congratulations to one of my Zutara artist friends on reaching 1k! To clarify, my submission is the colored version, I’m just matching the black and white to my Azula piece. Lol.
[ If you love the artist’s work then please give credit, as we have spent time and effort in creating our art pieces.]
Be kind. 💕
idk if I’ve shared the page here directly, or if I’ve just shared snippets, but if you search up “oda nobunaga letters” and click the oocities link, it leads to a page I just love.
Some short, translated letters by Oda Nobunaga with their appropriate context and some responses.
The first on the page is a letter to Saito Tatsuoki, who is the son of Saito Yoshitatsu, who killed his father who HAPPENED to be Nobunaga’s father-in-law, whom Nobunaga assumedly respected quite a lot.
“Today, Your Lordship’s immoral clan is devoured by the fire of the gods, and it will soon get utterly crushed by my men.
You are my wife’s nephew. For years I have been grieving to witness your cowardice and shallowness, and I didn’t have the heart to unsheath my sword against you.
Not even now.
I am willing to concede a reward for your surrender, and I suggest that you do that if you still wish for another day.
I am waiting for your submission at my camp.
[signature & seal: Oda Nobunaga]”
After receiving this letter, Tatsuoki did, in fact, surrender to Nobunaga.

This documentary is pretty great. It’s about a 1960s Samurai show becoming huge in Australia, to the point where the main actor was more popular than the Beatles. Such an obscure subject to an American like me, but captivating all the same.
