Imma steal it~ by ZellBell5 Imma steal it~ by ZellBell5
... And this is why I shouldn't draw clouds. ^o^ Or arms, for that matter. I need to practice more~ Speaking of which, I really like this pose for some reason. XD

I was scribbling randomly, and I guess my mind decided to subconsciously draw Tenshi. Then I remembered about the peaches on her hat and thought; 'wait, isn't there a legend about this?'

After one Google search my questions were very quickly answered. Quote from this website; [link]

"...This celestial peach was mentioned in several Chinese legends and is said to grow in the garden of the Queen Mother of the West, 西王母. The celestial peaches ripen once every few thousand years and humans who consume the celestial peach achieve immortality.

The ripening of the celestial peach is celebrated with a Celestial Peach banquet, 蟠桃宴, during which all invited immortals feast on it."

So it's kind of like the hourai elixir? >.> Anyway, it's now my personal headcanon that Tenshi stole (borrowed) celestial peaches for her fabulous ZUN-style hat. ^^

Style is still going in all sorts of places~
