Decide on your roles and play!
Threads of more than two are welcome and encouraged.


1.  Boarded:  Your ship has been boarded, and as captain you've been captured!  Better hope the other captain gives quarter.  Alternatively, it's a nice warm day for a swim.  That plank was made for walking.

2.  Victory:  You've captured another ship!  You knew those extra cannons would come in handy.  And let's hope they've got lots of swag!  Where's the captain? Are you the decent sort, or are you going to rub their face in it for a bit?

3.  Swab the decks:  You're a cabin boy!  It's a good thing you don't mind doing all the dirty work, right?  Anyway, the captain's calling; better see what they want.

4.  Marooned:  For a bit there you'd thought you were in Davy's Jones' grip, but somehow you've washed ashore with the driftwood.  As you stare dazedly up from the surf, you have questions.  Where are you?  And who's that already on the shore?

5.  Buried Treasure:  Sink me! You've really found the mother lode. . . but you're not the only one.  Who gets to take the treasure back to their ship?  Better make sure it's you.

6.  Rum:  Rum, everywhere. 

7.  Swordfight:  It's that person you can't stand!  And they've taken your most valuable possession, that one of a kind thing you just can't live without!  Better get that trinket back before it and your nemesis are gone over the side forever.  Let's hear some swashes buckling.

8.  Mutiny:  The tack is full of maggots and this drinking water may as well have come from the gutter.  There's one person to blame for this, and you're here to make especially sure that they pay for it.  The captain does always seem to take the best treasure before everybody else.

9.  Kidnapping:  Don't they look rather peaceful, innocent even, sleeping so soundly there with their fancy nightclothes and pillows.  Brings a tear to your eye, it does.  Better take them aboard and send for a ransom.

10.  Take a Gamble:  Gotta spend your loot somehow, but it must have been the rum that had you bettin' everything at once!  You've lost to your hornswagglin' shipmate; what did you lose, and what will they make you do now?

11. Under the Sea:  You are now a Mermaid/Merman!  That sailor over there sure looks appealing; let's see if you can lure them in with your charms.  Don't forget that they can't breathe under water!  You do seem to always forget, don't you. . .

12.  The Doldrums:  Can you say cabin fever?  The sails haven't moved in weeks.  You're about seeing if your mates can relieve this awful boredom.

I still love you ; A;

[ Lucky for Arty, most pirates speak 'bound captive.' He ties the younger man's wrists together, practically inescapable but not painful. ] Why not? You're like what, 15? [ He shifts around and ties a spare bit of rope around Artemis' ankles - he has no desire to get snap-kicked in the face, thanks. ]

Ainheen! [How embarrassing. This pirate wasn't even taking him seriously because he looked so young--something that Artemis had to endure routinely until the crew had been educated of his capability. In the position he was in, there was little he could do but try to pull his gag down while his captor was busy tying his legs together.]

Eh? No way! [ Yuri's tone stays conversational as he finishes off the knots and stands, brushing his pants off briefly. ] You need to put on some muscle, kid, or no one'll take you seriously when you say that.

[ Aaaand Yuri bends back down, grabs Artemis' angrily squirming form, and effortlessly hoists the younger man over his shoulder. He really does need to put on some weight - kid weighs about as much as a sack of rice. He starts walking out of the cabin. ] Think I should do the cackling thing? I probably shouldn't attract any attention, but it'd be funny as hell. [ No he does not ever shut up. ]

[But god, Artemis wishes he would.]

[So what if he wasn't the strongest person on deck--his job was more cerebral! More geared towards thinking instead of doing! He had plenty of people to do the heavy lifting for him. His lack of muscle had absolutely no correlation to how old he looked.]

[In response to whether or not Yuri should cackle, Artemis brings his elbows down into the pirate's back. He's already gotten this far, what's a few more lashes once he's been taken to the enemy ship?]

[ Yuri reaches for the door just as Artemis' obnoxiously sharp elbows declare war on his back. Ribs can only do much to protect him, and Yuri loses his balance at the unexpected pain, stumbling into the cabin wall. He instinctively tightens his grip on Arty, fingers digging into the other man's scrawny hip. ]

Ow, jesus, what the fuck was that for!? [ Keeping his voice low is an effort. It's also an effort to not just knock Arty out, but Yuri's pretty sure Fowl Senior won't pay as well for a brain-damaged son. ]

[For a moment, Artemis is afraid they're going to fall and he's going to break his neck and die. But once they resteady and the pirate is bitching at him, he grins nastily through the gag. Good, he hopes it hurts later, too.]

Ah ahs ah orr? [He repeats with a snort.] Ida'hin' ee! [Obviously.]

Yeah, well, I'm not hurting you, am I? [ Yuri grouses but aside from an arguably-accidental bump of his shoulder, he doesn't retaliate. Gotta keep the captive in good shape, after all. ] Golden rule, kid.

[Artemis could argue that whatever hurts his father financially, hurts Artemis as well, but it's a bit much to say through a gag. Also now they're going up the stairs that connect below to the deck, and so in the interest of not being dropped on his face Artemis is quiet.]
