July 21, 1917 - Kaiser Wilhelm Rejects Reichstag Peace Resolution, Promises “Second Punic War” Against England

Pictured - The Kaiser hands out Iron Crosses to troops on the Eastern Front, July 1917. By this point of the war he had become a “shadow-Kaiser,” powerless to his generals. He had never believed in representative government, however. His meeting with Reichstag representatives in July was the first time he had done so in two decades.

Peacemaking efforts took some degree of precedence in the summer of 1917 as all sides began to fret that more harm was staring to come of this war than good. While the British tried to bribe Enver Pasha, the socialist-dominated German Reichstag finally abandoned its truce with the Kaiser and passed a resolution calling for peace. The motion passed by 212 votes to 126. It asked for a “peace by agreement and a permanent reconciliation.”

Germany’s new chancellor, Dr. Michaelis, who had succeeded Bethmann-Hollweg a week before, vowed that he would never seek peace. “I do not consider that a body like the German Reichstag is a fit one to decide about peace and war on its own initiative during the war.” The Kaiser agreed, and remarkably visited Reichstag representatives to tell them in person. It was the first time the monarch had deigned to meet his representative government in two decades.

The Kaiser made a relentless speech calling for a “Second Punic War.” Once England, that modern Carthage, had been defeated, Germany would rise to its place in the sun. Wilhelm called attention to German’s recent great victory on the Eastern Front, but he made his biggest impact when he commented that “When my guards appear, there is no room for democracy.”

Feyre and Rhys Children

Imagine if Feyre and Rhys didn’t just have a daughter

We all like to think that Rhys and Feyre have a daughter. I being one. Cause OVERPROTECTIVE COURT OF DREAMS !!!! But imagine if Rhys and Feyre have a set of twin boys before their daughter.

  • The boys were born 100 years after the battle with Hybern and everything that happened under the mountain. Feyre wanted time and she got that. She got time with the court of dreams uninterrupted, she got the the freedom she had never had before, she got to heal and become a strong amazing High Lady. But also, she got time to have Rhys all to herself. They are immortal so there is no rush.
  • But then Feyre finds herself pregnant. And she can feel two hearts beating within her and Rhys can hear them too when he puts his ear to her stomach.
  • At first it’s terror and fear for both of them. High Fae have trouble with pregnancies, and two babies at one time … this is going to be very hard. But together, they are ready.
  • When Feyre gives birth to her sons they are no more than 5 minuets apart.
    • The older one is named Faron
    • The younger one is named Florin
  • The boys are both Illyrians, wings and all. They are obviously powerful because of who their parents are but no one quite knows how that power will manifest itself.
  • The twins are almost identical. In looks both are more like Rhys, with the same tan skin and black hair like him. But one has Feyre’s eyes and the other has Rhys’s.
  • However it is their personalities that are the big difference.
    • The older one, Faron, is more talkative around strangers, but when around family he is more like Feyre. That is to say quiet, protective and strong in a less of a presence way but quiet power way.
    • The younger one, Florin, is more quiet around strangers. He can easily blend into the shadows, content with his twin doing all of the talking. But around family and friends, boy oh boy is he like Rhys. He is smug, arrogant and completely devoted to those he loves.
  • They grow up happy in Velaris. Learning to fight with Azriel and Cassian. Learning to winnow with Mor. Learning to be scary without even trying with Amren. Learning to paint and read with their mom and learning to fly with their dad.
  • But just like every young Illyrian, they go to a camp to learn how to train for battle.
  • Feyre goes with them, and stays in the house that Rhys’s mother stayed in when he was training. Rhys always comes for dinner and stays the night. The rest of the Court of Dreams stops by very regularly.
  • The twins are not given special treatment in the camps. They are treated the same, and even choose to sleep with their comrades. Making friend with a lot of them, their closest friends being three Irriyan females (cause yes Rhys fixed this) and two other males.
  • As they get older they grow into their powers more. And like their father, their powers cannot be tamed with syphon stones.
    • Faron inherits Rhys ability to mist and Feyre’s ability to light up and call upon water (sometimes he gets really jealous of his brother, but when Feyre shows him what water can really do … he is obviously very pleased)
    • Florin gets Rhys ability to control the darkness and shape shift from Feyre (he turns out to become more like Az- he is the quieter of the two)
    • Both can winnow and can read minds like Rhys and Feyre
  • When they become old enough and start the whole lusting after people (I like to think that the older one is Bi and the younger one is gay) Feyre does the same thing Rhys’s mother did with her ring. She gets two rings that Rhys had given her over the centuries and put it into the cottage of the weaver and told them that “Their future mate or bride/husband had better be able to get the pieces of jewelry or else they would never be able to survive staying with them for all eternity”
  • Now, with the Illyrians that they became super close with, the twins formed their own mini Court of Dreams, but instead called it Court of Stars
  • Rhys and Feyre decide not to step down once their sons meet the age of maturity. In fact when the twins do reach the age of maturity, neither know who should be made High Lord. (There is talk of making them both but ultimately it goes to their daughter who they have later - and no, not right after she reaches the age of maturity)
    • Faron becomes her second and Florin becomes her shadow singer
  • And like their father they get tattoos too, their first ones matching insignia’s of the Night Court on both their knees like their father. (They so look up to Rhys even if they don’t admit it). Eventually each of them adds onto their ink, sometimes the same thing, sometimes not. Sometimes it is in the same place and sometimes not.  
  • After another 50 years since they matured, Feyre gets pregnant again. And this time it is the baby girl.
    • Let’s just say she has two very protective, very scary older brothers and family

anonymous asked:

Ok, so I was watching Tarzan when this idea hit me. The Paladins find a baby Galra abandoned on a planet, and decide to keep it until they find it a home. (Bonus if Keith is part Galra, and bonds with the baby)

In other words you want Paladins with babies? Hell yes.

-Lance would be the one to find the poor abandoned Galra orphan, having no idea that the babe is Galra and just brings it back to the ship, already having named it and showing him around

-Allura would have a damn near heart attack, (Lance is pretty sure she was being a tad over dramatic, but she insists she was not)

-Hunk, naturally, would be the second to jump on board, because this is a child and they certainly wouldn’t be good paladins if they left a poor child alone.

-Keith, the poor soul, has no idea how to handle children. Like at all. I mean can you really blame him? So he walks around like he’s walking on eggshells.

-But the little Galra tot has taken a liking to Keith  as if the little munchkin can tell he’s Galra too 

-Coran of course informs him that that’s exactly the case, and the Galra baby would likely be happier if Keith would spend time with it and give it the sense that it was surrounded by familiar scents and company

-But of course, Keith thinks staring at him from across the room as Lance prances around with him calling him the cutest little Galra ever is going to do the trick and form some kind of bond

-Lance would totally knit him little sweaters. That’s canon. Fight me. 

-It’s not until Pidge asks Keith to take him while working on a project does Keith finally take the Galra kid into his own arms and it’s almost painful how uncomfortable Keith looks. 

-Especially because immediately the Galra baby just stares at him with wide eyes and Keith swears a little drool is coming out of its mouth.

-Shiro is laughing because he’s under the impression that the reason the baby is staring at him like that was because he was just copying Keith and that’s how he thinks he should interact and that’s not true Shiro Keith is grumbling

-Lance thinks it’s the funniest thing because now there is two grumpy cats sitting around the castle, one that’s actually grumpy and one that’s mocking him

-The Galra kid becomes Keith’s little shadow, and for days everything he does the kid copies, so when Keith argues with others the response he gets is red faces from holding back laughter as a small Galra behind him is mimicking his hands and faces

-Hunk may or may have not taken pictures. 

-But what kills Lance to death is when he walks in on Keith trying to teach him how to bare his teeth at the Mice and Lance has to clutch his heart because omf that’s cute 

-Keith also develops a habit of playing with the Galra’s ear which is slightly bent trying to get it to stand up and Pidge swears to this day he said “You won’t be a very threatening Paladin if you come across as a cute kitten, buddy”

-Coran has a secret video of Keith playing peek-a-boo with him, but refuses to let Lance see it. 

-Of course the Galra baby can’t stay with them, so when Allura informs them a member of the Blade is willing to take the little one in, they’re devastated and Keith is trying his best to remain bothered and reasonable 

-Just as they’re dropping him off with his new family the little tot starts to call Keith “Keef” and oh man, Keith is as red as his lion.

anonymous asked:

woah wait - whats this about Elain being a lowkey shadowsinger, as well as her abilities as a seer ( which is badass enough at it is ) i may be being completely stupid but i literally cannot recall this being touched upon, or even hinted at, during the book ?? would you mind sharing your thoughts / the evidence youve gathered to back this up ? tysm xxx

Haha! So while I was reading, I thought it was weird that she wanted to be constantly bathed in sunlight. And we know she was in a dark place, and Feyre kind of explained that as her needing to get the sunlight she could no longer produce from within. And that makes sense. But it struck me that maybe she wanted the sunlight to keep the shadow away because her darkness was calling to them. We don’t know if Shadowsingers are born or made. And in ACOMAF Rhys mentioned that maybe the shadows came to Azriel when he was locked in darkness for all those years. So yeah. That played in my mind a bit. 

And then we got scenes of Azriel being HELLA attentive. He was the ONLY one in the WHOLE BOOK who saw Elain. And that was kind of her thing—no one saw her but Graysen, but now he won’t see her. But the entire book, when Azriel interacts with her, he knows exactly what she needs. He hides his shadows when he’s around her, he doesn’t ignore her visions instead he talks with her about them. He sits with her in companionable silence in the sunlight in the garden (like maybe he did, and needed, the same thing when he was released from the darkness). He is almost as much of a seer as she is in a way. He is the one who figures out that she is a seer. And I think he figured it out the day they all stood in the foyer after the Court of Nightmares visit. Also, she sees him. She doesn’t balk at the scars or his huge frame or anything.

Then she was downstairs with the Shadows making bread. I know it was daylight and Elain was healing, but it was kinda odd that she was handing out with the Nualla and Cerivden (I cant spell their names!). 

But all of that is scraps. But then…

Azirel hands Elain Truth-Teller, a blade he’s never given to anyone. Ever. And they have their weird moment where they’re both holding the blade and it reads like maybe some truth passed between them as they both held that blade. And I remembered that Elain predicted Cassian’s death. And I got the impression, that 1) Azriel remembers because he was standing in the room when she said it, and 2) Azriel knew she could handle the blade/needed to be able to trust herself with it, and that if Cassian was going to die, it would be after this moment. So because he knew Elain saw Cassian’s death, and knew when it might happen int he near future, it could’ve been a way for Azriel to low-key let her know that just because she sees death, doesn’t mean she can’t stop it. But it’s always her choice.

The wouldn’t you know Elain Archeron “stepped out of a shadow behind him” to stab the king. I mean she TOTALLY could’ve been in the area. She TOTALLY could’ve come running. She TOTALLY could’ve winnowed. And it could TOTALLY have been the magic of the blade that brought her to the person she wanted to kill so that it would always “strike true.” And that seems likely. that it was Truth-Teller. BUUUUT. Didn’t Azriel become Feyre’s shadow when they went to save Elain? Didn’t he then fold them into shadow so that they could run through the camp unnoticed?

We would be stupid to ignore that she very likely could’ve walked through the shadows regardless of holding the blade.

• He’s glad he has his visor for cover, his face was betroot red when he saw what your new uniform was on your next mission together

• Honestly, is this even allowed? Yes you were wearing armour on top but a catsuit that just showed off everything?

• He blames a crack in his visor for missing his shot of helix rockets, when in fact he just caught a glimpse of your scrumptious behind

• He just didn’t understand how it was so gravity defying and plump and the way it slightly jiggled when you walked

• Absolutely has to drag you into a dark alley just to feel you

• The suit was easier for you to move around in, which he could clearly see

• Honestly his visor is a lifesaver this old guy can not keep his eyes off of you

• Gets incredibly protective when he sees other agents noticing you, dropping an arm over your shoulders and grunting about how you were his

• When you’re walking away from him in public you have to expect at least a pinch

• In the bedroom? Prepare to be spanked. Hard.

Reaper

• He just rolls his eyes when he sees your skintight leotard, saying you’ve been spending too much time with Widowmaker

• Can’t help but steal glances though, especially when he has his mask on

• Other Talon agents become even more terrified of you, not just beause of your outfit but Reaper has become so possessive

• He will hunt those down who stare one second too long at you, and he will hurt them

• Will not let you out of his sight for a second, him becoming your second shadow just in case someone tried something

Or because he just wants the chance to oogle you all day

• Sombra has had to literally knock sense into him on the battlefield because he was too busy looking at your hips shaking as you fought

• Has no shame in dragging you by the wrist to a dark corner and telling you how he’s feeling

• Back at the base he will literally tear it off of you so he can have you

• You make a mental note to thank Widow, your little plan to add some ‘spice’ into your relationship had worked
