Yep, OSP covered that one in their Animal Brides video. Post

I think there is at least one where they leave and go back to their selkie family, only for their human “husband“ to accidentally murder one of their “wife“’s seal kids, leading to them cursing their kidnapper’s entire island so that the islanders would keep randomly falling off the cliffs until there are entire to completely encircle the place. Post

I never really read any stories of them getting justice in ones where they were brides... they just left after getting their skins back. Post

Selkies are weird, ‘cause them being victims of kidnapping is a main part of their backstory, but when they bring Ocean Justice against people in retaliation for their treatment suddenly they’re meant to be the bad guys. Post

Sirens don’t even use sex appeal in the original tales. The voice and hints of cosmic secrets they promise are what people hear. Post

I agree with the first part, but sirens are a bad example as in most myths they enthrall the sailors with their voices.  The men are under a magic spell. Post

Valid point. Post

And this is why Circe needed her own book👏 Post

When I first read this I was thinking “spirits” like “liquors” and then I was like oh.  ohhh. Post

Just like some men, “wolves in sheep’s clothing”. Post

Sirens literally sing to charm their victims. Men or women into jumping into the sea. Have you read the Greek mythologies? Post

I want a book where it shows sirens are the laziest of supernatural creatures. They just stand there and do and say nothing but rack up the kills. Other supernatural creatures are a bit irked by it Post

Demons are angels challenging us to be better people. When we pass the test they reveal their true nature.

If your diet is people are you gonna turn down a free meal? Post

Free food is free food. I don't see why you're complaining. Also men are clearly just snacks seeing how spirits tend to live in remote places with not a lot of men in them. Sirens probably mostly just eat fish. Post

Also, the way you worded it makes it sound like you think people who get scammed are asking for it. Kinda victim-shamey.

@onceideals Really not my point. My point was that OP left out a HUGE piece of siren lore to make it support what they wanted to say. The men in those myths didn’t take the sirens’ existence as an invitation; the sirens literally invited them in with whatever they wanted most in order to kill them.

@dogbearinggifts if promises of fortune without payment attracts you and don’t think there will payment that’s on you

Okay, but Sirens lured men with their voices so... technically not on the men? Post

dogbearinggifts reply to this Photo16 days ago

But…sirens DO lure men to their deaths. They sing a song promising to offer whatever the victims want most in hopes the ship will crash on the rocks. That's a pretty big part of siren lore.

ok but sirens sang songs that made people go kinda crazy, so they couldn’t help but be lured👀like that’s why they sang songs, so that they’d be lured to their death
