I finally finished the line art!

Now I’m more of a FranScot/ScotFran fan but I have to admit that I have a soft spot for FranIre….Especially 18th Century/Rococo FranIre. So I made a sketch of France finishing a portrait of Ireland who he seems to paint…A lot..

Aaaaand if you notice the large portrait of Ireland is based off of  François Boucher’s ‘Mademoiselle O’Murphy.’ I love his work like wow Still deciding if I should color it or not.


When people characterize France and England’s relationship as England always winning their wars/ kicking France’s ass and coming off totally triumphant

Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.

Well this was just beautiful

Feli, did you help the Great Raid? —Anonymous

askfelipinas:

I’m assuming you’re referring to the Raid at Cabanatuan? Of course I did! It was the greatest rescue mission in the Philippines! Maybe even in the entire WW2 history! You have no idea how much we wanted to rescue those poor soldiers abandoned, er~, I mean, left behind in the Philippines when America left and concentrated his war efforts in Europe.

But for those who have no idea what I’m talking about, then listen up! I have a heroic story to tell!

I guess I have no choice but to start in the beginning. 

As you all know, I was a former U.S. territory. 

image

And as such, there are multiple US army bases in my home. So, When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, I became the next target, and true enough, we were attacked a couple of hours later. We were caught totally unprepared, and we lost 3 months later.

Approximately 60,000-80,000 American and Filipino soldiers received orders to surrender. It was the biggest surrender in American history since the civil war. That was also the first time America lost to another country.

The soldiers who surrendered were forced to march 128 km, from Bataan to Camp O’Donnell in Tarlac.

image

Thousands died in the march because of disease, starvation, dehydration, fatigue, and cold blood murder. It was later known as the infamous Bataan Death March. But the death toll continued to rise at the prison camps due to inhumane treatment and unsanitary conditions of the camps.

image

Those who didnt surrender, managed to escape to Australia, or went to the mountains to join the guerrilla army. 

Some of the survivors of the Bataan Death march were later transferred to a bigger facility in Cabanatuan. It was the ‘mother camp’, the biggest prison camp in the Philippines, holding as much as 8,000 POWs at its peak.

image

We kept a close eye on that place. But we couldnt help much. We couldnt liberate them. The place was flat as a pancake. We’d be spotted immediately. And even if we did manage to free them, There’s no way we could hide and take care of thousands of POWs. The guerillas could only gather intel and smuggle food and medicine inside. 

image

You can just imagine our excitement when America finally returned and help us fight the Japanese army!

By January 1945, only about 500 POWs were left at Cabanatuan. They are the sickest and weakest POW’s. The stronger ones were transported to Japan, Formosa and Korea a month earlier aboard the ill-fated transport ship Oryoku Maru

image

A super top secret plan was immediately made to rescue the remaining POW’s at Cabanatuan. It was so secret, only General Krueger and the handful of US army rangers and guerrillas involved in the rescue knew about it. 

image

But by the time we got to the town near the prison camp, every single one of the villagers seem to know about the mission and pretty much threw a fiesta for us!

image

America was not pleased.

I completely understand. The operation was a very delicate matter. We’re in enemy lines. The Japanese soldiers were becoming desperate and dangerous the closer the American army was. We feared another massacre would happen just like the one in Puerto Princesa, Palawan a month earlier. So the rescue of those POWs must be carried out immediately!

image

In the end, as if by providence, what seemed like an impossible mission went smoothly with minimal casualties, thanks to the precious intel the guerrillas gathered over the years, and the bravery of the rangers.

And finally, after over two years of captivity, those brave soldiers were once again free men.
