When I met John Constantine… by Ayhelen
The other day I had dream. I met John Constantine inside a hall. I thought he was going to teach me some magic, instead he set me through some very difficult challenges! It was the most bizarre and exhausting dream, the good thing is that he told me: “You passed”
Hope I meet him in another dream, I learned a lot :)

Sinfonia Eroica - sketch by Ayhelen
Beethoven vs Napoleon. Poor Beeth really admired Napoleon until he proclaimed himself as the Emperor of France.
He never forgave that, I can tell :)

Meeting John Constantine by Ayhelen
The other night I had a very interesting dream. I dreamt with an encounter with John Constantine!  I like to read Justice League Dark and know a bit about Hellblazer and while I find them interesting, John isn´t my favourite character.
Well, this guy, after showing some magical trick ,he set me up to a challenge! Not that I had to fight against him but he decided that it was more amusing to him putting me through strange situations and seeing how I was able to solve them rather than being the part-timer magician hired to amuse a kiddie´s party :laughing:
It was the most bizarre and exhausting dream I ever had! Still, I would love to eet him again on another dream :)

A Plan so Simple it’s Genius!

During the Napoleonic Wars in 1805, two weeks after the Battle of Austerlitz, the Austrian Army had been destroyed by Napoleon Bonaparte and the Russians were in full retreat.  The Emperor of Austria sued for peace, thus occupying Napoleon’s time.  He left the French forces in command of his two most trusted Marshals, Joachim Murat (pictured left) and Jean Lannes (pictured right).

Napoleon’s orders were for Murat and Lannes to advance against the Russians, preventing the Russian Army from meeting up with reinforcements.  The only problem was that lying between the French Army and the Russian Army was the Danube River and a single bridge.  There was no other intact bridge across the Danube, nor was there a suitable crossing place.  Worse yet, the bridge was heavily guarded with Austrian infantry, cannon, and was rigged with explosives.  Both Murat and Lannes knew that there was no way they could take the bridge intact by force.  Instead the two Marshals of France (actually Murat was a Grand Admiral) resorted to guile and trickery instead.

To the amazement of the Austrians, Murat and Lannes confidently walked across the bridge alone holding a banner of truce.  Then to the Austrian general’s surprise, they claimed that an armistice had been reached between Napoleon and the Austrian Emperor, and that the bridge was to be momentarily occupied by France.  When a disbelieving engineer tried to blow the bridge, Lannes grabbed the torch from his hand, angrily scolding him that he was in violation of the armistice and could be held for court martial.  The Austrian general was so taken by their act that he concluded their claims of armistice was legit.  He ordered his men to grab their gear and vacate the bridge.  

Incredibly Murat and Lannes had successfully taken a heavily fortified bridge without firing a shot or shedding blood.  The success of the bold tactic Incredibly, the Russians would use the same tactic to escape, with the Russian General Bagration suggesting that they should negotiate terms. During the negotiations, Gen. Bagration quietly evacuated his army from harms way.  Needless to say, Napoleon was furious at Murat and Lannes could so stupidly be fooled by their own tactic.

"

Robespierre exhibited much gallantry to the ladies, and perhaps, it may be thought, sometimes carried his politeness too far.

Walking one day on the Boulevards with a lady, she very much admired a house. “Would you like to have it?” asked Robespierre. “Indeed I should,” came the reply. “Then Madame, it shall be yours,” said Robespierre, and absolutely carried his courtesy so far as to have the owner denounced as an enemy of the Republic, and immediately executed, his property confiscated, by which means Robespierre easily obtained possession of the house and presented it to the lady.

"

Sounds legit.

Wow. I want to know what happened next. Did Robespierre visited the lady in this house?

(via n-nevskaya-n)

Polite to a fault, huh.

A polite a**hole!

missdramu:

You know you can’t satisfy the Sailor Moon fandom, despite there will be a new release of the old series on Blu-Ray.

And Sailor Moon Crystal is just 2 episodes in and everyone nitpicking on the casual artist’s mistakes that are not true to the manga.

What can I say about this? Well, took the words out of my mouth.
