I’ve been meaning to post this once school settled down.
I commissioned @pommeplisa for Valencia and I was not disappointed. It’s so pretty the drawing style is so elegant and the way you color is just so beautiful. I just adore the textures used on the wings especially since it gives like a cool paint and soft effect. The hair is just so fluffy and the shading is just so pleasing. But honestly, my favorite thing is your style overall. I really love your art style so much it’s so gorgeous the way you draw the eyes, the eyelashes and just about all of the character features. Thank you again for this wonderful art!
me: knock knock!
person: who’s there?
person: the who?
me: The Who are an English rock band that formed in 1964. Their classic line-up consisted of lead singer Roger Daltrey, guitarist Pete Townshend, bassist John Entwistle, and drummer Keith Moon. They are considered one of the most influential rock bands of the 20th century, selling over 100 million records worldwide and holding a reputation for their live shows and studio work.
The Who developed from an earlier group, the Detours, and established themselves as part of the pop art and mod movements, featuring auto-destructive art by destroying guitars and drums on stage. Their first single as the Who, “I Can’t Explain”, reached the UK top ten, followed by a string of singles including “My Generation”, “Substitute” and “Happy Jack”. In 1967, they performed at the Monterey Pop Festival and released the US top ten single “I Can See for Miles”, while touring extensively. The group’s fourth album, 1969’s rock opera Tommy, included the single “Pinball Wizard” and was a critical and commercial success. Live appearances at Woodstock and the Isle of Wight Festival, along with the live album Live at Leeds, cemented their reputation as a respected rock act. With their success came increased pressure on lead songwriter and visionary Townshend, and the follow-up to Tommy, Lifehouse, was abandoned. Songs from the project made up 1971’s Who’s Next, which included the hit “Won’t Get Fooled Again”. The group released the album Quadrophenia in 1973 as a celebration of their mod roots, and oversaw the film adaptation of Tommy in 1975. They continued to tour to large audiences before semi-retiring from live performances at the end of 1976. The release of Who Are You in 1978 was overshadowed by the death of Moon shortly after.
Kenney Jones replaced Moon and the group resumed activity, releasing a film adaptation of Quadrophenia and the retrospective documentary The Kids Are Alright. After Townshend became weary of touring, the group split in 1982. The Who occasionally re-formed for live appearances such as Live Aid in 1985, a 25th anniversary tour in 1989 and a tour of Quadrophenia in 1996. They resumed regular touring in 1999, with drummer Zak Starkey. After Entwistle’s death in 2002, plans for a new album were delayed. Townshend and Daltrey continued as the Who, releasing Endless Wire in 2006, and continued to play live regularly.
The Who’s major contributions to rock music include the development of the Marshall stack, large PA systems, use of the synthesizer, Entwistle and Moon’s lead playing styles, Townshend’s feedback and power chord guitar technique, and the development of the rock opera. They are cited as an influence by hard rock, punk rock and mod bands, and their songs still receive regular exposure.

2. between 2&7 who would be your best friend?
Chanyeol vs Minhyuk hmmm difficult to answer cause i can see them both being great friends…. but i think i’m gonna go with Minhyuk, we’d be very cute besties.
3. between 5&10 who has the better voice?
Wonho vs Minho how could i ever choose between 2 angels??? I love both of their voices, they’re both great vocalists….. but if i had to choose, it would have to be Wonho…. i’d want him to serenade me to sleep every night. ahhh that would give me such great dreams.
4. between 1&8 who is the funniest?
Yoongi vs Mark Lee Yoongi never fails to make me laugh, whether he’s trying to be funny or not.
5. between 6&9 who would you date?
Jay Park vs Taeil ajsjkhAJKDGkuahdaf Having to choose between 2 beautifully tattooed men is cruel!!!! But i guess i’ll go with Taeil cause he’s too cute for words. We’d be 2 little cuties.

“Does Gansey…ever talk about me?” Blue whispered in a rush. She felt very silly, and very young. Noah
looked across at her with a small smile on his lips, in his eyes, like
he was thinking the same thought but with fondness instead of
Ronan opened his mouth. He wasn’t sure what he planned on saying. He
might have said something biting and cruel, easily identifiable as the
reason Adam would leave. He might have said something soft, begging him
This is basically just me wondering what would have happened to our
characters if Gansey hadn’t come to Henrietta when he did. Like, if he
didn’t show up until a year or so later. What was destined to happen?
How would everything turn out? It basically starts right around the
beginning of the school year just after Ronan’s father died.
One day it’s Ronan
doing Adam’s laundry for him because he was late for work. Then it’s
coffee in a flask at school because Ronan made too much with breakfast.
Then it’s offering to drive him to work.
They’re all little
things. So little that Adam doesn’t even notice them at first. He’s so
busy. There’s only twenty four hours in a day, but it’s never enough for
all the things he has to cram in, never enough for studying, homework,
socialising, sleeping. He’s so caught up in his little whirling bubble
that he doesn’t get a chance to notice the small things.
blue has a favor to ask of Ronan while Gansey and Adam are away. She ends
up receiving much more than she expected. (Or, that one where Ronan
teaches Blue to drive stick and they have adventures.) Post-BLLB.
