Combine COSMIC LOVE by Florence and the Machine with this picture and create a steam punk adventure of danger and rescue based on the soundtrack.
The story is one of an aristocrat and a street orphan teaming up in the days of the French Revolution to save aristocrats not under any sense of love for that class but to earn money to support the street people and poor who have been lost in the blood lust of Robespierre's 'Revolution'. Sorta the 'Scarlet Pimpernel' crossed with 'Tale of Two Cities' and the '3 Musketeers'.
This is the coin that all members of the resistance carry. The League of the Sun and the Moon. and will be on the cover of the book
Also included in the story are a team of Geisha assassins who worked for the aristocracy but once they found their own position (one built upon generations of favours and intrigue) threatened, they join up with our heroes to bring down the villainous Robespierre.
And of course we have three spies (two kitties and a chicken) who risk their lives delivering messages where our human heroes can't. It will not be animated but maybe a combination of CGI and live action like 'Voyage of the Dawn Treader'.
This would be the look of my main character. I like the big hat but not so much the Katanna as a weapon. More of a silver rapier for my guy but I would keep all the other silver armor that would give off a shine. The rest of the outfit would be black with a cape and mask of course - a silver mask.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
