PostSubject: A Nautical Account of Discombobulating Events Involving Pirates   Thu Dec 03, 2009 10:26 pm

Long ago, in 1594, when the Renaissance was in its full swing, there was a mighty ruler both wise and gentle. She was a visionary, an artist, a lover of music and literature. She was both fair and harsh, ruling her land with an iron, yet just fist. She was the idyllic sovereign of a country that had faced one too many disappointments and hardships. But she was also ruthless, cunning, and crafty. Queen Elizabeth I was one of a kind and the picture for all rulers to come of England. In a world where men were the only rulers to be found across the world, where women were viewed as weak and unfit for leadership, she took what advantages she had to rise above the rest and bring her country peace. Upon gaining power, she broke England's alliance with the Spanish wisely, realizing that the Spanish King would soon seek to dominate the land now owned by a woman.

Shrewdly, the fair queen planned her means of attack upon the Spanish Armada. She knew that if her navy were to outright fire upon them, the superior Spanish navy would be righteous in their declaration of war, a war her meager men could not win. So what could be done? Bribing another country to do the deed herself would be much too pricey and may very well end in the same result.

It was then that the queen saw another alternative. There was an option that was much cheaper and impossible to trace and prove.

Pirates.

Turning to the very men of sea she once condemned, she paid them to fire upon ships who dared to fly the Spanish flag. Taking the pay gladly, they agreed to do her bidding.

Yet as satisfying as it was for ambassadors of Spain to come to her court to ask her in exasperated tones to cease hiring pirates to fight them, it wasn't quite enough for Elizabeth. She pondered and thought on what could finally appease her.

After years of dealings with the rough and unpredictable seamen, she finally heard rumors that caught her interest. On an island uncharted, there was a secret, underground location. In this location, there was said to be unimaginable riches from centuries past, all of the Spanish royal family's dearest treasures they could not seem to part with. With a cruel and witty mind, she sent summons about the world to the most notorious pirates across the seven seas. Beseeching their audience, she offered them a share in the loot. If they were to trespass upon the guarded island and find that treasure for her, returning it all in full, she would split it evenly between them all.

This was the opportunity of a lifetime, one she knew no true pirate would resist. And so, meeting with them on the first of the year, she gave them their maps and coordinates and the money and men to get them there.

Now, the legend begins--the one that few have heard of and fewer still can remember...


She took a long, deep breath of the tangy sea air.

"Well, Milton, it seems we've made it, my friend," she said, the odd accent rolling off her tongue.

"So it would seem, Captain," replied the ever-proper Nicholas Milton, her First Mate.

The wind blew long and light, lifting her wheaten locks. Her wavy hair flashed and shined about her shoulders and to the middle of her back in the mid-morning sunlight. Her pale, delicate hand rested upon her hip which stuck out prominently as she had her weight shifted to one side. The wind picked up again, blowing her billowy, white men's blouse, the plunging neckline somehow not quite so revealing as one might think, but revealing enough for that day and age to get a man's imagination working. A pale smirk stretched across her sarcastic and witty features, her green eyes sparkling with some hidden, inside joke that the world seemed not to understand. Her head was lifted high, her chin and petite nose in the air as she regarded the new crew coolly. Her scarlet skirt, making a bell shape to her hips, fluttered at her calves, hidden by the black boots she wore upon her feet. Golden bangles clattered about her wrists, her large golden hoops tinkling likewise.

B'Ellana Barachi felt some odd form of disdain for the ship. It was much too English for her tastes, preferring the disorder and familiarity of her own piece of floating wood back in Brooms, Australia. Sighing, she flicked the fingers of her free hand forward, indicating Milton should follow her. Making her way to the helm, she leaned upon the wheel, gazing at the sparkling azure before her. What a mission, and by a queen, no less. Well, it wasn't completely out of the ordinary. Pirates' attacks weren't always just by their whim. Too risky. They needed some form of protection now and again.

"I guess it's up to us, Milton," she told him, "It doesn't seem as if these blokes really know what they're doing. No one else is nearly crazy enough to pull this off."

"Of course, Captain," he agreed obediently.

"They are SO damned lucky to have us," she sighed again in a form of exaggerated exasperation, expressing that she was SO put upon.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
James Faust stepped loudly upon the deck, his black boots making quite a racket upon the wood with its loud and obnoxious clunking. He stood erect and proud, a stoic and haughty expression alight upon his features. Cold, storm-grey eyes swept the ship critically, already making his own complaints in his mind. His strong, powerful arms were folded in their black captain's jacket sleeves, the front of which was unbuttoned to reveal his white blouse, the plunging neckline revealing an equally strong and fit chest. Skin that refused to tan adorned him and his hardened and stiff features. Black hair was pulled back in a ponytail, making visible his proud, aristocratic face. His back was tall and straight, unafraid and unyielding, like himself.

"It's no Good Doctor, but with any luck, we'll have it back in our possession soon enough," he said in his young, clear, yet angrily gruff voice. It was a quiet voice, generally, yet always strangely audible and sounded constantly furious. It wasn't hard to envision him yelling at the top of his voice at his crew and instilling fear in any man around him.

"Dun worreh, Cap'n'," his Jamaican First Mate replied easily, "Da Good Doctah be ours in no time."

James nodded. "You're right, Darius. Patience is key."

Ignoring the refreshing breeze, he turned to the Captain's quarters to sit before the maps and plot...

Of course, the more the merrier. We're all on the same ship, too, so that adds to the tension.

NOTE: Anyone can be a pirate or a crew member.

A wide grin spread across Madeline's sunkist face as she watched her brother, Mason, leaning over the boat's railing, the sea spraying salty water up into his face and setteling on his sandy hair. They hadn't been at sea for very long but the twins were finding a pirates life very much to their liking. A few moments later Mason returned to her side, sea salt drying on his skin and sparkeling in the bright sun.
"Here's your bucket Maddy." Mason said cheerfully as he set the tub of water next to his sister and grabbed a mop.
Madeline looked up into Mason's stunning green eyes only to see her own reflected back in them. she marveled at the changes in him as she grabbed her own mop and began cleaning or "swabbing the deck" as the pirates liked to say. They had been nearly identical just a year ago when they set out on their grand adventure. Since then they had each grown exponentially. There was a saddness in Maddy when she looked at her brother. Not long ago he wouldn't have been able to carry one huge bucket of water, but now he could move two with the ease and grace of a skilled seaman. At only sixteen years he was already developing his father's build. Once skinny arms now bulged and rippled, under his canvas shirt he now boasted sturdy abs and a trim waist.
But it wasn't just him changing, Madeline had noticed changes in herself as well, Her wiery build was begining to take on a woman's shape. She had begun to fill out in ways she found herself grossly underprepared for and wished now more than ever that she had a mother to share her question's with.

Sebastion Ravencliff stood off to the side of the ship, avoiding work as best as he could, watching and listening to the people around him. He wanted to know as much as he could about this crew he had been hired into. The young sword for hire with a fast growing (yet still small) reputation did not want to reveal his skill in a fight with a pirate having a bad day. Any of these men could break his thin frame in two easily, if they could grab him. His skill with a sword came strictly from his exceptional speed and reflexes.

"get to work!" one of the pirates barked at him as a mop was thrust into his hands

"I'm a sword for hire, not a maid" he grumbled to himself. Reluctantly, he went to mop behind a set of twins he noted earlier so that he wouldn't have to actually do anything. keeping his distance from the twins so they wouldn't notice him pretending to do what they had already done, he went back to watching and listening, absent mindedly moving his mop around and moving once in a while.

As the sun set, coloring the ship and crew in hues of orange and red, Madeline and Mason made their way below deck, stopping only to nibble on stale bread which they waashed down with tepid lager, before climbing into their hamocks and setteling in for the night..

A short while later she heard her brothers light snores mixing with the sound of waves lapping at the ship's hull. She attempted to let the gentle rocking carry her off into dreams but to no avail. She eventually rolled to her feet and climbed quietly up onto the deck. Madeline peered out into the endless blackness surrounding her. The water seemed wicked at night. not at all refreshing like it was in the daylight, all shimmering and turqoiuse.
