this day in 1890, the Native American Lakota Sioux chief,
Sitting Bull, was killed at the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. Formal peaceful relations between the Sioux and
the United States
government began in 1868 upon the signing of the Fort Laramie
Treaty. However, the discovery of gold in the Black Hills - which were in Sioux territory - in the
1870s led to a torrent of white prospectors invading the Sioux lands.
The numerous Sioux tribes united
under Sitting Bull’s leadership, and initially secured some
victories over American forces. The most famous battle of the Great Sioux War of 1876 was the Battle of Little
Bighorn, where Sioux and Cheyenne warriors defeated the famed General
Custer. Sitting Bull then led his people to Canada, only to come back to America in
It was around this time that he joined Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West
Show, but he soon returned to
his people to protect the rights of indigenous Americans. Sitting Bull
was killed on the Standing Rock Indian
Reservation in 1890 by U.S. troops, who were trying to arrest him under fears
would join the Ghost Dance movement.
“I would rather die an Indian than live a white man”
The plan was simple: sneak a group of fighters and gunships onto the moon orbiting the blockaded planet Sett, concentrate the main attack on the blockade ships, then send in the second wave out from the hiding place carrying supplies to the planet and sending fighters to back up the main attack.
Deceptively simple: in order to somehow land fighters and supplies, then lie in wait, Generals Kenobi and Jinn had been forced to make the approach over the course of several days, from a distance at which they would have been undetected. They’d flown through an asteroid belt holding course to keep the moon between them and the Separatist scouts who patrolled the blockade lines consistently. Whatever was going on on the surface of the planet below, it must have been quite precious to them - a new weapon or droid factory, perhaps.
Once they’d landed, their troubles were still far from over. It was a lucky thing the moon had been the planet’s main supplier of fuel over the years - neither the gunships nor the starfighters had been meant for the sort of journey they’d made. And Sett’s moon was cold as the worst months of Hoth, for good measure.
General Jinn slowly unfolded his large frame, lifting himself out of the cramped starfighter. But it was cold, and the frigid air was not encouraging his efforts. The wind made it still worse. He could just barely make out the distant shapes of - presumably - General Kenobi and a handful of men from the 212th, standing by an outcropping that blocked the fierce gusts, and trudged over in their direction at Cody’s all-clear signal.
By the time he could see them, his eyes were drawn automatically to Obi-Wan, who must have been waiting to speak with the local clan leader. He was shifting from foot to foot, and though he was certainly dressed for the cold, all those wrappings didn’t seem to be doing the trick. It wasn’t quite as windy here behind the rockface, but the air still stung when it shifted even the slightest bit.
“Ah, Qui-Gon,” Obi-Wan smiled, cheeks cold-flushed and snowflakes silvering his beard. “The Shirzai Clan sent word ahead. They apologise for the delay, but they weren’t expecting us for another day or so.”
Request: Reader and Theo used to secretly date, but she broke up with him when he killed Scott. But she still has feelings for him and when the Wild Hunt ends she runs to him and kisses him in front of everyone. Warnings:None! Note:Sorry if I posted it late I hope you’re going to like it,so if you do let me know! I was so sick of this Hunt and the Ghost Riders thing,I really wish this will be over soon and to make things even harder fighting along side with Theo wasn’t really helping.Because we’re not on a really good terms right now..yes…we used to date secretly,but then he killed Scott and I decided to break up with him not to mention that there’s a possibility that he maybe cheated on mewith no one else then Tracy.I really loved him and to be honest I still do,but he waisted words like ‘love’ and ‘forever’like they don’t mean anything..But they do..At least to me…But then he was gone too soon that it made me think that he wasn’t even real but just a fragment of my wildest dreams,he had a choice to stay but he didn’t.He choosed stupid power over me.So when Liam told me that he bringed Theo back from hell it was hard for me,yes of course I wanted him to be back,but I never thought it’s going to be this hard. We were fighting with Ghost Riders but it wasn’t that easy,because there was so much of them but we needed to help Scott divert the train away from Beacon Hills,when I saw Theo fighting two Ghost Riders I instantly runned toward him to help him.Digging my claws in one of them..’You need a hand?’ I smiled at him and he smiled back.’Nah!I’m good,but thank you!’ ‘That’s what I thought.’But then I saw he’s face got serious again and before I could react,I felt a sharp pain on my left side.I instantly pressed both of my hands on the wound hissing,Theo killed the Ghost Reader and came back to me.’Oh my God Y/N are you okay?’ I couldn’t respond for a moment ‘Y/N-..’ ‘I’m fine it’s just a scratch I’ll heal,go help the others.’ ‘But-..’I looked at him with glossy eyes and I’m not sure if it was because of pain or the thought that he maybe cared about me.’Go,now!’ He just nodded and run away. When Scott finally was able to divert the train and stop the Wild Hunt,we came all next to each other watching the weird thing happening with the Ghost Riders,I was still holding by my side and I could tell that Theo was looking at me too.They turned Mr.Douglas in one of them and then they were gone.I heard Scott saying ‘We did it.I can’t believe we did it.’ Everyone looked amused what we did,we saved the whole town,then I saw Theo starting to walk away and I couldn’t help but yell…’THEO WAIT!’ He looked at me confused just like everyone else did,I started walking toward him still holding by my side because this wound hurted like hell but I didn’t care,As soon I was close to him I grabbed him by his shirt and kissed him hard..At first he stayed frozen,but just then he returned the kiss putting his hands on the both side of my cheeks.The wound was still there but as I said it,I don’t care the only thing I care,the only thing I always cared about was him. We broke the kiss completely breathless,but his hands was still on my cheeks looking me in the eyes..’Y/N what are you doing?’ ‘Something I should have done a long time ago.’ And we that we both smiled and kissed again.Suddenly everything felt perfect and yes…Loving Theo maybe was a little bit hard but I don’t care,as long as I know that he loves me back.

So it’s been quite a while since I’ve taken to writing a Meta, mainly because I am not a fan of rehashing the same things over and over again. However, with new information comes new things. And Teen Wolf finally gave me some information that I can work with, so in case you missed it there was a lovely bit of information posted. Mainly this blurb:
Highlights of the week the casting of a Texas teen to play fan-created creature The Sluagh and a behind the scenes look at actors Cody Saintgnue and Dylan Sprayberry in their martial arts workout space.
This is exciting because it means I get to write a new meta about a mythological creature. So without further adeiu let me introduce all of you to the Sluagh or as it is also known the Sluagh Sidhe.
