I guess it's about time to go! I hope you enjoyed your time here and consider linking back. ^^ Save and upload one of these images to an image hoster and replace the image address with your upload's direct link!
Here are also some sites to check out; a few of these links are repeats from other sections, just assume I like them that much!
Other neocities sites:
Shooting Stars - my younger brother's site! He likes to code things and helped make my site accessible and added those cute sheep on the bottom of the index page!
Soft Heart Clinic - a positive, mental health-focused site with a pastel/medical aesthetic!
Nostalgic - a site in the style of early 2000's sites! I especially like the goodies, it reminds me of stuff you'd put in your status messages or livejournal profiles... the resources are really great and varied too, from graphics to Japanese language to art tutorials and references!!
cloud world - a sweet little personal site that's like a cute, clickable adventure through pastel pixels!!
Straw Berry Basket - a cute personal site about Lolita fashion that also offers some nice graphics (please noooo read the rules!).
Cyber Sparkle - a fun and retro multifandom website with fan-shrines and old web graphics!
Districts - an excellent site that makes it easier to find other neocities websites on the same topics!
The Digital Diarist - personal site! I love the self-care and self-keeping page, hadn't heard that distinction made in name before. There's also stories to listen to (I like the fairy tale best, East of the Sun & West of the Moon).
Dollhouse Garden - my fellow old shoujo-loving friend's newly-opened site! The vintage aesthetics are quite charming so far! There's links to games and colouring pages, right now, so worth checking out for fun diversions. ^^
redribbon - a comforting and cheery site with links to fun things and lists! ^^ Also themed after a comfort character of the webmaster's, which makes me feel better about my main page and link button having Lillie, Iris, and Trip, even if Pokemon's not the focus of the whole site!
Sea of Stars - immensely sweet website with nostalgic graphics (remember those early 2000's 100x100 anime icons with lots of filters and things?) and a sweet, pastel layout! She also links an archive of her old website and she likes Love Nikki and Earl and Fairy! ^^
Other websites (fandom, graphics, cute things):
Shining Sunflower - old anime/manga fan pages and scans from the webmaster's collection of coloring pages!
Fool Lovers - I got so many cute graphics from here! This artist has soooo many cute and useful graphics, like banners, lace (the one on the main page is from here!), and cute pixel art...
Alice's Home - very sweet and pink pixel art graphics, with a lot of tiled backgrounds reminiscent of old-fashioned floral wallpapers, and an Alice in Wonderland theme.
ultimate memole gallery -A very sweet Italian site dedicated to Little Memole with a plot summary and image gallery.
We All Live in a Pokemon World... - (this website is defunct and offline, this is a saved copy from the internet archive!) this website was started by an educator named Kimberly who, when Pokemon was banned from schools, researched it herself and found much to love about the anime's kinder, more ideal world where humans and non-human creatures live and work together respectfully.
Peachie's Collection of Cute Stuff - a collection of cute old web graphics! Links to source when available. *Some undetailed doll-like nudity.
Catch a Star - lots of super cute graphics by Caz! I've used a couple on this site, very charming, lots of cute critters, sweets, and pastel colours too.
BonBonBunny - a very cute site with varied content on cute Japanese fashion subcultures, affordable brands, DIY accessories, tips on decor, and other things! Girlish fun and informative.
Big Top Productions - the official website of the company that made some of my favourite childhood games is seemingly unchanged since 1996, it's warm and nostalgic, with some fun features like character-themed recipes (mostly sweets, but also potpourri!) and Keroppi's pond where he shares submitted poems and journal entries>.
I Am2 a beautifully and thoroughly written dedication to Ai/Aitwo (Amber/Ambertwo) from the The Origin of Mewtwo special (originally cut out of the dub and dubbed much later)and Birth of Mewtwo CD Drama. The character's story is very tragic, but she tries so hard to be a comforting and nurturing presence. [CW child character death, not really a spoiler, she's dead before the story begins.]
The Little Prince - you can read The Little Prince online here (it is in the public domain in most of Europe!), with colour illustrations. This is one of my absolute most favourite books ever! It's written in such a way that both children and adults can appreciate it, full pf dreamlike whimsy and charm, but also beautiful pearls of wisdom about life, friendship, love... a very meaningful and beautiful story. The ending always leaves me in tears.
Resources and helpful things:
Making Fairy Tales from Personal Stories - a guide on how to distill the essence of lived experiences into fairy tales as therapeutic writing. It references Luthi's description of a fairy tale, so also read this. Learned about it from Princess Skye!
Toptal Color Blind Filter - a good site to use to check if your website's design is colourblind-friendly or not!
What is Shadow Work? - an introduction and guide on how to identify the repressed and usually ignored aspect of your payche that's uncomfortable to acknowledge, but also most in need of acknowledgment and healing.

Yaqeen Institute - this website has a lot of great articles, like this one on Islamic Spirituality and Mental Well-Being - an article on weathering the difficulties of life by cultivating a spirit of contentment and purpose through religion. "Self-regulation is the will power that enables people to act in accordance with their values and long term benefit despite costs to energy or short term pleasure.
FreeQuranEduation - this channel has charming and educational animations to illustrate segments from Islamic lectures, it makes learning about Islam as a way of life more accessible, especially for younger folks, but the content varies and of course, the messages themselves are suitable and important for all people (honesty, integrity, respectful, etc.!).

Bahrani Apps - this website offers a lot of useful and fun little apps, the GifCam is my personal favourite! It lets you make gifs from videos on-screen very easily. Some other sites have unfortunately taken it and bundled it with malware, but downloaded from the original creator's website, this little program is totally safe!
Online Counseling College - this tumblr blog belonging to the Online Counseling College has a lot of useful information and advice for mental health and wellness.
