And when I shall die, take him and cut him up in little stars, and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will fall in love with night and pay no worship to the garish sun.

History Meme | 1/1 War: The Second World War
World War II (WWII or WW2), also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, though related conflicts began earlier. It involved the vast majority of the world’s nations — including all of the great powers — eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history, and directly involved more than 100 million people, from more than 30 different countries. In a state of “total war,” the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the Holocaust, the Three Alls Policy, the strategic bombing of enemy industrial and/or population centers, and the first use of nuclear weapons in combat, it resulted in an estimated 50 million to 85 million fatalities. These made World War II the deadliest conflict in human history.
World War II altered the political alignment and social structure of the world. The United Nations was established to foster international cooperation and prevent future conflicts. The great powers that were the victors of the war — the United States, the Soviet Union, China, the United Kingdom, and France — became the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council. The Soviet Union and the United States emerged as rival superpowers, setting the stage for the Cold War, which last for the next 46 years. Meanwhile, the influence of European great powers started to decline, while the decolonization of Asia and Africa began. Most countries whose industries had been damaged moved towards economic recovery. Political integration, especially in Europe, emerged as an effort to stabilize post-war relations and cooperate more effectively in the Cold War.
Apollo doesn’t quite know how he bears it. Not being able to touch her as he wants to sets him on edge and she’s always there hovering just out of reach, smiling her small smiles meant just for him, laden with meaning and a tenderness that only he understands.
It’s not right. Both of them know that. They are brother and sister, twins and sometimes Artemis says she believes they share a soul. They are each other’s fixed point, the compass of their existence always spinning its needle back to North, back to each other.
And Apollo loves her, loves the graceful line of her neck and the way she pins her long white-blonde hair on top of her head. He loves seeing her bleary-eyed and irritable, padding about the kitchen in his shirt looking for the milk for her coffee. He loves knowing that there is no one else who will know the path up her slender legs, the perfect cradle of her thighs, the sweetest sighing of his name he has ever heard.
They know it’s wrong but that does not stop the way they bend together, the gentle push and pull as inexorable as the moon on the sea.
