Warning: NSFW

And now it's Tahlvin and Brandee's turn to be examined. A little word of warning, a couple of the pictures are a little risqué, but these characters did start out in an erotica story so I had to incorporate a sample of that into their mosaics. There might also be a double-entendre thrown into the mix. Can you find it? ;)

I should explain that Tahlvin was born in Seattle back in 1900, at the tail end of the Klondike Gold Rush (during which Tavia, his mother, and Koryll, his father, got reacquainted). So, that's why the caption to the picture that I used as his birthplace is titled "Seattle – gateway to the Klondike". I thought a long time about using an actual photo of Seattle circa 1900, but Tahlvin has always struck me as being very modern (he readily adopts the fashion and customs of whatever era he's in) so I decided to go with the picture of present day Seattle instead.
