Aye, me bonny lasses, when we last left off our story

Perhaps we shall catch her yet...

where we ply the waves in search of our true treasures - freedom n' friendship!

Fierce in our commitment to our goals


and determined to pursue our destinies


wherever our dreams may take us.

flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.

Hale and well met, me bonny lasses - I'm ShadowLion, the captain o' the Queen O' Swords!

 

The CutLasses have been adventurin' fer two challenges now n' in this one the crew is already a-trailing a likely prize. Welcome aboard and may this little adventure provide a welcome respite from undue seriousness, a chance teh kick back wi' a drop o' rum or other piratical beverage o' yer choice, and hang out wi' some lasses that like swords n' sails n' pirate tales while they pursue goals worthy o' singing about in a shanty.

 

Aye, there will be awesome deeds aplenty this challenge, I ken feel it in me bones!

I'm a waitin' teh hear how Beaucastle does at cannon this weekend at the Billy Bowlegs Festival. Hopin' teh have some pictures o' it fer ye once the challenge starts. I'm betting my money on the pirates, tho', don't yeh know.

 

An I, bein' a right proud pirate o' course, swiped this video n' followed the above link off'n Chris-Tien Jinn's thread wherein she gets shanghaied an' taken aboard a pirate ship. Makes fer some fine readin' when ye aren't on watch. But if ye be short on time, ye kin have one stop shoppin' fer the piratical type media elements.

 

 

Har, this sorry excuse fer a bard has obviously never met one o' the CutLasses! Me eyepatch and me pistols be jest fine, thank'y very much. :pirate:

 

Plus, I'm a-savin' a little surprise fer all ye fine Lassies fer about halfway through the challenge...

Welcome back, DGE! And ye be overly modest, lass. Cabin wench-har! :biggrin-new:

 

Don't let 'er pull yer leg, Sirona. She's a top notch sailor in the riggin' n' on the deck, n' she went after a giant squid once wit' jest the knife in 'er hand. Cut off'n a tentacle n' fed it teh the ship's cat, she did. "Somebody" was one happy cat that day!

Look sharp teh yer inboxes fer the details, as this is a secret mission. We would not want our next prize teh know we be a watchin' n' waitin' fer our chance...

When last we left off'n our story, Bonny Bosun Elinox had posted:

 

 

Night has come and the bosun be strollin' the deck, keepin' sharp eyes trained on the brigantine. The ship be a good 10 leagues off but she cin still spot the faintly glowin' deck lights. Eli motions to DeepGreenEden who's still aloft, also watching intently, and waves her bandanna in the dark. The motion should capture the other woman's attention. Then she makes her way to the captain's quarters. Knocking softly, she enters and nods to ShadowLion. "We cin easily draw full sail and make fast to catch that thar ship, cap'n. When'ere ye be ready."

"How soon can ye switch out the sails fer our dark ones, Bosun? We don't want teh risk the moonlight giving us away if the wind changes n' slows our speed," says the Cap'n.


 


"We can have them up at the quarter-hour, Cap'n," Elinox replies.


 


"Very good. As soon as they are up, set our course. We should be fast upon them by gray light," ShadowLion says.


 


"Aye, Cap'n. And swift n' silent we will run. All the lasses have the word."


 


ShadowLion stands n' claps Elinox on the back, "We shall have our prize soon enough, or at the very least, a fine adventure!"

Ahoy, Queen O Swords! Topman d'har askin' permission t'come aboard!

I'm handy on deck and aloft, and belt out a rousing shanty or two.   I've learned the ropes on a caravel (the Nina), a top'sl ketch( Hawaiian Chieftain) and the prettiest brig on the 7 seas (Lady Washington). In fact, it's that little brig that's inspired me to go on this adventure to better me skills 'afore she calls t'me salty heart again.  If y'show me 'er articles, I'll put me X down and walk the skies with ye a while!

DeepGreenEden waves her bandanna in response ta Elinox, an' keeps a steady watch while th' bosun confers with th' cap'n. Th' ship's large black feline has taken ta restin' at her feet, maybe beggin' fer any more bits of sea creature, maybe just wantin' a scratch between th' ears. Which Eden gives her, th' spoiled thing.

 

"Aye, that pretty little brigantine won't escape us," she murmurs. "An' once I get a share o' treasure, I be on th' path ta good fortune. Whatcha say ta that?"

So a little background on how we progressed the story last time...

 

Each lass can take a turn at advancing the story how she likes. Examples here.

 

It's just for fun and you don't have to be a novelist or anything.

 

This group is mainly for three things:

 

1) Having a little piratical fun away from the seriousness of our challenge goals

2) Supporting each other in our challenge goals on our individual threads

3) Spreading the piratical cheer to encourage and inspire other rebels in their challenges

 

Tailor your participation to fit your schedule and your needs. First and foremost, take the time and energy you need to accomplish your challenge. That comes first. Then, have some fun and participate as you can in CutLass! activities. Encourage your fellow CutLasses, and they will do the same!
