silver siren

(( This is a closed starter for @thatonesakudere! ))

Well, this was a mess.

Really, it was only a matter of time before Aaron was accosted by some thug, his nighttime vigil of the water and sky interrupted by one of the hooligans who lurked around Gotham’s docks. Normally, the pianist was quite aware of his surroundings, his silver tongue prepared to talk himself out of any trouble, but he had been taken by surprise, and was now quite literally backed into a corner.

Aaron remained pressed against an old wooden building, one arm extended in what he hoped would be seen as a placating gesture as he searched for his wallet. He never carried that much cash on him, and if a credit card was stolen, he would just cancel it; what he was really worried about was the possibility of being killed by the mugger.

In time, of course, brown eyes registered that someone else was nearby. He would not draw attention to his plight, would not call for help, would not let his gaze linger for more than a moment as part of some silent attempt to ask for assistance. Aaron would never want someone to get in trouble on his behalf, even if help would have been greatly appreciated in this case.

Aaron saw this as his fault for not paying attention, and he wouldn’t want to see some passerby get hurt because of it.


Urartian Silver Pectoral, c. 7th Century BC

The pectoral is decorated with sirens walking in profile, five in the upper register and seven in the lower, interspersed with palmettes (possibly representing a sacred tree), each frieze with a raised band above and below, the panel bordered above and below with a punched double-triangle motif, the curved panels and each end decorated with a profile figure of a winged genius (benevolent spirit) in the ‘Knielauf’ (kneeling-running) position, each holding a situla (a bucket-like vessel associated with purification rituals in and around the ancient Mesopotamian region).

The region of Urartu (map) corresponds to the mountainous plateau between Asia Minor, Mesopotamia, and the Caucasus mountains, later known as the Armenian Highlands. The Urartian Kingdom rose to power in the mid-9th century BC, but was conquered by Media in the early 6th century BC. The heirs of Urartu are the Armenians and their successive kingdoms. Urartu is cognate with the Biblical Ararat

Gavin, Meg & Ryan Go Heisting

So I had this idea that Geoff sometimes sends a very special team out to deal with particular threats, not one most are expecting, Crazy Mad or The Lads generally do the crew’s scare work or enforcing.

Sometimes he knows a job with be long, hard, dangerous and need a special brand of chaos. So Geoff sends his Golden Boy, The Vagabond and last but certainly not least Dollface The Silver Siren; Queen of Death.

Meg and Ryan are old partners, hardly a word needs to be exchanged between them in the field. Consistently on the same page in every situation. Danger and Death personified into perfect harmony and Gavin?

Gavin is their amplifier, their conductor. Directing their chaos with seamless brilliance to obliterate all in their path. The one people never expect, the one the underestimate at their own peril. He’s often called The Gilded Clown as if it was an insult.

The Vagabond, The Silver Siren and The Gilded Clown.

Their first job together happened to be a masquerade ball infiltration gig.

So of course they needed outfits of appropriate merit and masks because Ryan and Meg were already all about them. Gavin couldn’t resist joining in on the fun and gifted the pair with a brand new set, masks that they don to this very day whenever Geoff sends them out together.

Gavin “The Gilded Clown” Free dressed in all the golden finery for which he is named wears;

Meg “Dollface” Turney  in all her brightly died hair, skin as white as porcelain and gowns of silken silver finery dons;

Ryan “The Vagabond” Haywood dresses the most classically of them all with a mask that is perfectly suited to his most theatrical self **;

Known collectively on the street as The Three Venetians it takes hardly any time at all for the people of Los Santos to fear these masks just as much if not more than the faces of a lone black skull or a broken porcelain doll.

**When the fun begins Ryan will sometimes switch back to the notorious skull mask, neither of his crew mates take it personally**

Is DC going to use the 2017 crossover as a way to show once again how "evenly matched" Cap and Batman are? Last time I checked Cap has the super soldier serum, a hell of a lot longer to develop his fighting skills, and when it comes to Batman's gadgets - well if Cap can get through some of what Stark hit him with in Civil War I think he can deal with Bruce Wayne. Just saying is all. Also, if we get "movie Superman" who kills people isn't it a bust unless The Phoenix rolls into town?

Brine, siren, seafoam?

Hi thanks for the ask Kimmy!!! :3

Brine: Gold or Silver?
- I think I’ll go with silver

Siren: In a fantasy setting would you be a be a warrior, rogue, or mage?
- Ooh I always want to be a mage! I think having magic is so cool! I love it!

Seafoam: Describe your ideal summer vacation
- I would love to go to a beach where the water is clear and beautiful, where the winds are calm, the sky is bright blue, the sands pure white and soft. And when its evening the sunset is a beautiful hue of orange and purple.
