if noah saved gansey when he was ten and then didn’t reappear until they were teenagers, what did he do all those years? was he just floating around henrietta, peeking in on the kids who would soon become his best friends? did he get to see blue punch a boy for calling her a name in seventh grade? was he there to be a silent comfort to adam who would spend nights crying and shaking in his room? did he play games with the lynch boys secretly and silently making a smaller ronan giggle and smile? was he there to help gansey find some hidden answers in a that textbook he’s been looking through for hours? did noah know about his friends even before they knew about him?

I’m an animation student from Southern California who’s really interested in traveling and learning more about different languages and cultures. Right now, I’m self-studying Norwegian and French, but I’d love to meet anyone, really (even if you’re from the US, like me!)

I like art (everything from Monet to Sugar!!), films, youtube, reading (currently on The Raven Cycle series), rpgs, and conspiracy theories about the paranormal. I’m also LGBTQ+, and would prefer my penpal be a part of the community, too, if possible!

Preferences: I’d prefer it if you’re LGBTQ+, and anywhere from 19 to 29.

  • What she says: werk bitch omg!!
  • What she means: work bitch. No seriously. Work. During the reign of King Louis XIV, France was at the forefront of European culture and politics. Poor harvests and high taxes, as well as Louis' decadent lifestyle led to increased need for cheaper peasant labour. The King and his finance ministers endeavored to reduce dependence on products of foreign import and build up domestic infrastructure. The uprising that killed Louis' father has been long since quelled and the monarchy is doing everything in its power to encourage the cycle of poverty in the working class. You have to work as much as you can to feed your struggling family. Werk bitch.

Peter Weigle, French Fender Day 2016
A great event, as is the case every year. Thank You Peter Weigle and all the people who helped this event become a reality!
Definitely a highlight of the year, for myself, as well as for many others.

1940s Porteur

This 1940s porteur from Paris came in good straight working condition, repainted and lovingly modified by its former owner. In his spirit, I’m modifying it some more. A perpetual work in progress, it gets a lot of use already. Or still.

The elegant lugless frame has a sloping top tube, long chainstays and a steepish headtube. It has small diameter tubes; the seat tube takes a tiny 22 mm post. I replaced the rusty original and needed a BMX post to fit.

‘Before’ picture is here . It came with cracked 700 x 28c tires, I mounted 35mm Panaracer Paselas. I added a deadstock fabric chainguard which I chopped to the length of those steel ones usually found on French porteurs.
