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.

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!
