Calling all would-be pirates!

I've always wanted to be a pirate queen.* Who will crew with me?

We probably won't do much re: matters piratical, but that's okay. As dozens of Hollywood pirates have taught us, you don't actually have to pirate to be a pirate. We will be, I assure you, as doughty and brave and piratical a band of pirates as any other band of pirates by the sea.



* This is a lie. For several years I wanted to be Princess Leia. But after the follies of earliest youth faded, I realized I'd get shot at less as a pirate queen.

It's a BYOB (bring your own boat) sort of pirating, but if you have a sailboat, or can fold one out of a piece of paper, we can have sailboats!

THAT. That is our theme song.

And yet I am mildly reminded of RHPS.... What is it about that man's singing voice......

I'll happily join up with your crew. As an accomplished Personal Space Pirate, I think you'll find me a handy addition.

Personal Space Pirate! Sweet! You can give lessons to the rest of the crew. (Why steal booty when we can make the other ship give it to us and be happy they did?)

Exactly!

Lesson one: Hover six inches from them while muttering "arrrr" constantly under your breath.

Oh, ME!!

I could make a kick-ass bo'sun, who keeps things (boat-wise) ship shape and bristol-fashion. The emotional center of the ship is between the steward (Mom) and the Captain (Dad), so it would be up to you, oh captain, oh my captain, to keep us contented in spirit....

Congrats and welcome aboard! You have free rein re: bo'suning, as my entire understanding of it was formed by Peter Pan and involves being used as a jungle gym by small children while sewing. Do please bo'sun to your heart's content.

Oh dear. We had better get a good steward, then. Have any candidates?

no candidates for steward in mind, but someone will want to do it.

My model for Bosun is from the Walloping Windowblind/A Capital Ship wherein we learn:

The bosun's mate was very sedate
yet fond of amusement too
he played hopscotch
with the starboard watch
while the captain tickled the crew

but we need a gunner!

I bet the Rebel Alliance participated in many activities that the Empire would classify as piracy, so Leia actually *is* a pirate queen.

You're right! (Or a pirate princess.) Break out the hair danishes and the piratical white dress of robey doom, me mateys, we have Death Stars to plunder!

Excellent! We shall provision you with the finest spices and wines from captured merchant vessels, and the whitest flour and rice (plus brown flour and rice--got to watch out for our health), and meats fine, juicy, and rare, and dry biscuits with weevils pre-planted. And you shall abuse us all and send us out for MORE GALINGALE AND THREE POUNDS OF WHITE TRUFFLES. It shall be splendid.

(I TOTALLY CAN. AND WILL.)
