Aaaaaaarrr! Pirates! IC (PangusMan & Alvynear)
“Dandy!” A shrill female voice cried throughout the Melee Island docks, coming from the throat of a bodacious redhead leaning from the crow’s nest of a massive ship that had just slipped into the bay’s sparkling teal waters. “Do we have a safe berth ready? I haven’t been off this tub in almost three weeks, and I think I’m starting to grow gills!” The woman grinned down, stuffing her captain’s hat back on her head—trimmed with gold and double-cornered, it was a lovely hat, made out of the same red velvet as the long brass-buttoned coat she wore over her shoulders. Captain Sonja Darling winked down at her crewman and slid out of the crow’s nest, sleek as a cat, and dropped onto the deck. Her boots clacked loudly as she landed.
Vengeance of Dawn sailed forth into the semicircular bay; men along the docks specifically employed to help boats land threw lines aboard the ship. The Dawn’s crew began tying off the various ropes and cables to fasten the vessel. The current wasn’t strong, but it could pull the ship out of the berth. It was easiest to make it fast and board via ramp rather than chase the thing down in a rowboat.
Sonja supervised the work with her first mate, a massive man with a dark beard. He was ‘Dandy’, and he spoke to no one but Sonja. There was a rumor among the crew that he didn’t actually speak, but had had his tongue cut out while serving on another vessel.
