Allow Francis to show you my face right now.
I’m speechless but I’ll try to say thank you so much for thinking so highly of my humble blog. Thank you so much, you made my day. Thank you and good luck with your coursework wow that’s some heavy stuff but wow go you.
Thank you. I am still speechless.
Taking a break.

Anonymous said: Hello doll! (OuO)/) I have two questions for you: 1. Have you ever drawn Romano by himself before? Because I know you've drawn him with other people before. (Please correct me if I'm wrong. Only being able to be on the mobile app sucks sometimes because of the limit you have.) 2. Where do you get such beautiful quotes? (If they are quotes. I haven't the slightest idea.) and one more thing: Your art is absolutely gorgeous! I love it so much /)u(\ And thank you for taking the time to answer~
1. I have! I usually drew him wearing his white robes on, whether alone:
or with Feli:
I especially liked portraying Lovi as his religious self rather than his usual short-tempered sweetie self we always see. Thank you for that question. I might do more art of him soon when my research deviates to his path again.^^
2. The quotes are usually taken from the event itself, if not inspired by it. Usually when I wanted to draw an event/a historical personage, I look up quotes connected to them from the internet or from my books, and pick the one that best describes the event or the essence of the event. World Wars, for example, have a lot of memorable quotes, ranging from the allies to the axis, from the civilians to the higher-ups. Lots of quotes, in varying languages, varying feelings and mindsets, inspirational or ironic.
And wow thank you for the compliments. <3 I am terribly flattered and touched that you liked my art a lot. <3
Thank you as well for the nice questions. <3

It was the song they sang as they marched to the trenches. “We’re Here Because We’re Here.” It was sung to the tune of Auld Lang Syne, a sardonic joke sung in full-throated defiance of death. “We’re here because we’re here because we’re here because we’re here.”
But underlying that song there is a question: a question to which the song gives no answer, stark in its simplicity. “Why are we here?”
" But the song that summed up the First World War the best was the simplest one of all."
Says it all really.”
