Who are we Assassins?

 

 

We're a little bit nuts

But we get the job done

By whatever means we feel like

Let's start things off with a question for you:

 

 

 

If you could be any Assassiny-type character, from any genre, in any type of media (book/tv/movie/game) - who would you be, and Why?

(pictures and GIFs encouraged!)

 

Would you be like the Assassin Altaïr?  Why?

Would you be like star and stuntman Jackie Chan?  Why?

Would you be like ninja Yoruichi?   Why?

Would you be like the unstoppable Mindy McCready?    Why?

Remember as you think of your answer, "Assassin" is a big concept!

 

It encompasses:

ninjas

Nobody yet? Really?? Well, I'll start us off...

I admit that I've actually only played a handful of Tomb Raider games, but I still have to pick Lara Croft as my biggest inspiration. She's a survivor. She's versatile, adaptable, and she can count on her own musculature to shimmy, roll, jump, flip and climb through any situation. It's the kind of strength I truly want.

 

It was hard to choose just one, though. I have a LOT of runner-ups!

Martin's wife apparently asked him not to kill Arya, since she's her favorite, too, so maybe she'll make it to the end. *fingers crossed*

 

As for me, my top fictional assassinspiration (shut up, it's a totally cromulent word) is Parker from Leverage.

And my top real world assassinspiration is Erin Shredder.

What is this Leverage you speak of? I must investigate!

Well, I'm really interested in possibly climbing someday, but I don't really have a fictional inspiration there. I don't know if these guys count, but I kept coming back to them because it's really where I want to be: you get out of any scrape, you push yourself to the limit, everything is a weapon, and you kick major backside!! So my two inspirations are Glenn and Michonne from Walking Dead. (Sorry if the picture is massive! I'm still figuring all this out.)

Leverage is terrific. A team of con artists who rip off bad guys. Parker is their master thief. She can steal anything from anybody, but doesn't quite get how people work. I salute you for this very solid choice.

 

Ezio is too obvious a choice -- though I love Ezio -- so I'll go with Locke Lamora. Able to improvise his way out of any situation before the enemy knows what happened.

 

Hi, all -- I'll definitely be joining you for the second challenge of the new year.

I've been trying to read Lies of Locke Lamora and he's a little... too perfect >_< Like he can literally outthink everybody. I will probably continue with the story at some point so I'll let you know if anything changes ;)

 

And yay to a future!Assassin :D

I would probably pick Jason Bourne.

 

tumblr_m9ua5k0ZJo1qa7hzxo1_250.gif

 

He's not an insanely acrobatic assassin, but he gets where he needs to go to get the job done (then he gets the job done*). Plus he has perfect situational awareness. Those are both traits I would love to have.

 

I'm going to rock this challenge, and I can't wait to get into the Assassin's guild. I'm really excited about bodyweight workouts, as I'm stuck at home most of the time and won't be going to a gym in the foreseeable future. I would love to get into climbing and/or parkour, and have been into martial arts in the past, but mainly for the way they increase my flexibility and reaction times.

Except that one time.

I stopped watching The Walking Dead after season 2.  I just found season 3 waaaay too boring and lost interest in the show.  But back when we first met Glenn, sneaking around the city bolting away from zombies and climbing all over the place, that was totally Assassin skills!  (I assume that was Glenn?  Dude in the picture is older, so I'm guessing he grew up?)

Great description of an Assassin!  An acrobat may be an Assassin, but not every Assassin is an acrobat.  Bourne counts.

It's on Netflix, for anyone who's interested in watching. I highly recommend it, especially if you like heists. :D

 

First time I've heard of Leverage, and Eric Shredder.  Tell me more about them! :o

 

Erin Shredder is a hoop artist (both body and aerial) whose work I'm just totally in awe of. The control she has over her body and her tools is phenomenal, and she's got great stage presence. This is her demo reel:

Okay a little late like always but hey I'm aspiring to be one of the assassins soon too.

 

So for my character I have to pick:

 Naruto-uzumaki-naruto-6608510-351-500.jp

Naruto (okay more a ninja than assassin but why not).

I have to pick him because I love the mix of being stubborn and passionate but reaching your goal's through hard work. Also he also always happens to find something to be happy about and that's something I really admire and try looking for also. (Also I really love ramen too ;) )

 

So once again hello everybody, nice meeting you.
