damkianna: A cap of Korra and Asami from The Legend of Korra, about to race. (Let's do it.)

I'm taking the liberty of interpreting the prompt for Day 2: Senses REALLY loosely; basically this is just an excuse to picspam the (major) women of Sinbad (TV), but enjoy the halfhearted logic I use to justify it! :D

I mean this entirely idiomatically; Nala would look down her nose at me in a withering fashion if I called anything about her "common" to her face. And, hilariously, the literal meaning of the word "common" in this phrase—"widespread; in general use"—has absolutely no relevance here whatsoever, because let's face it: nobody else on the entire show has much in the way of common sense. :D

Nala's role on the crew tends to be as the sensible one who tells other people their plans are foolish and/or rolls her eyes—which is somewhat at odds with the ridiculously beautiful clothes and half-ton of jewelry she brought with her while on the run from Death itself. She's sometimes very haughty and sometimes very stubborn, but always willing to tell people when she thinks they're being stupid—often right to their faces! ♥ NALA.

This one I don't have to reach for, because the show hands it right to me: Rina is established from the very beginning as the streetwise thief with the bad attitude and miles of (well-earned) trust issues. She's also entirely capable of noticing when you're being stupid, but unlike Nala, she probably won't tell you; she'll just watch you mess up and laugh. Unless telling you might annoy you or distract you long enough for her to take your stuff, that is.

She does, naturally, have a loyal streak, as so many thieves with hearts of gold do, and the conflict between her urge to brush things off or pretend she doesn't care and the depth to which she totally super does care is tropey and delicious and I LOVE IT. Sinbad is not a show I would ever recommend on the strength of its writing, but how her backstory comes out and the way she handles it is one of the moments I think it pulled off excellently.

Bit more of a reach here, but I'm comfortable arguing that Tiger does in fact go with her gut often enough to justify it. :D After all, she's introduced to the show as a bounty hunter whose job is to hunt down Sinbad and turn him in, and based on a little fighting, a little banter, and a pretty feeble offer, she switches sides. She doesn't actually have all that much reason to, but she—well, goes with her gut.

I read on tumblr somewhere that according to the PTB she wasn't really raised by tigers; but I love that backstory and nothing else was shown in canon, so it's fair to go either way. And either way, it's clear that she's skilled in combat, decisive, a good judge of character when she tries, and rarely backs down—all things that I say take the kind of intuitive snap judgment that I associate with gut feeling. I'm a sucker for her storyline in much the same way I'm a sucker for Rina's; Rina and Tiger both are hiding their feelings in different ways, but are both so squishy on the inside anyway. I only wish she could have been in more episodes!

Okay, look, this is basically because there are only so many phrases that use the word "sense", and Taryn does use magic and have visions and scry, even if she can't actually read minds. Mostly. (That flash she gets of bits of the future when she touches Sinbad in 1.05 is probably the closest to the usual use of "sixth sense".) But there was no way I was going to leave Taryn out of this.

Magic is so central to the way Taryn interacts with other characters and with the world during the show that it actually is almost fair to call it a sixth sense for her. For most of the show, she's doing a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to moving the main plot along, and yet the viewers don't know why until the last couple episodes: there's so much that only Taryn knows, that's unrevealed to anyone else's perceptions. And, actually, we don't really learn it until the characters follow Taryn out of standard (i.e., five-sense-composed) reality. That ... makes more sense than I was expecting it to. \o?
