[OOM: In the latter part of the eighteenth century, the voyage from India to England via the Cape of Good Hope took at least six months.

Quite a lot of things can happen in six months.

And even when the voyage is at an end, a good sailor must always be aware of which way the wind is blowing.]

OOM: After the storm, comes rescue. Whether it's entirely welcome or not.

[OOM: After the hurricane, those on the Black Pearl take stock of their situation -- and come to a few conclusions, as a result.]

It is a tired-looking but generally happy trio, (plus a monkey) that steps from the faintly glowing portal in the corner into the bar, shoving a pile of luggage. Beyond them, and before the portal closes, a dimly lit interior of what looks like a ship's cabin can be seen, and perhaps the face of a certain pirate, before the younger of the men shouts and the monkey jumps back through the closing portal. He seems to be the only one of the three that doesn't look mildly relieved. Wistful smiles watch the pirate running off in hot persuit of the monkey as the shining portal finally vanishes completely, and the three turn to gather their things and take them back to their respective rooms.

Welcome back to Milliways Archie, Svava, and Wellard.

[OOM: Back in the Caribbean, the Black Pearl sets sail for the Isla de Muerta, to bring the wanderers home.

Unfortunately, they'd not counted on Norrington's determination-- and no one had expected what might happen when the overtaxed power of the astrolabe finally recoiled back upon its starting point.]

[OOM: When they were young lads, Archie Kennedy and Henry Wellard grew up hearing the adventure tales of one Captain Jack Sparrow. To their surprise, they -- along with Svava -- find themselves taking part in one of them: The Adventure of the NeverEnding Night.

Once all's said and done, it turns out that the night itself isn't quite over. After noticing one ship in particular, Jack leads the three newest members of his crew over to pay a special visit to a certain Commodore Lyon of the British East India Company.

[OOM: Clearly they've never been to Singapore- so who better to take Archie, Svava and Wellard there than Captain Jack Sparrow? Archie and Svava head off shopping with only one minor inconvenience, while Jack takes Wellard off to visit a flower shop. A flower shop of a particular sort. Ahem.]

[OOM: Elsewhere, interesting tricks with time and space continue as the Black Pearl approaches Tripoli-- and encounters the Interceptor II, under the command of Commodore James Norrington.]
28 July 2006 @ 02:55 pm
[OOM: Time and space can sometimes be more guidelines than actual rules. As a result of playing tricks with both -- for Archie, Wellard, and Svava, not to mention Captain Jack Sparrow, an adventure begins on the hidden island of Isla de Muerta in the Caribbean.

Meanwhile, however: back in Port Royal, Commodore James Norrington receives an unpleasant ultimatum and sets out on a voyage of his own.]

((OOC: Archie and Svava leave a note for Alanna after this thread.))

The front door opens wide, and a pirate strolls through.

Captain Jack Sparrow has a wicked look about him tonight, and there's a bright and mischievous gleam in his eyes. He's flipping a worry-wood casually through the fingers of his left hand as he heads straight for the Bar.

By the time he gets there, a bottle of rum is waiting for him, and Jack grins.

"It's good to see you again, too, luv."

[OOC: Plot-tagged, yes, but not plot-locked!]

Time is a curious thing. Although it may have taken longer to get back from Singapore than it did to go, he's not particularly worried about it. The search was a success, after all, and the treasure found.

This time.

By the time the Pearl drops anchor in the hidden cove, Del is gone--

(I'll keep you, if you want - never let me go, luv)

--or so to speak.

In any case, when Jack comes bounding through the door to Milliways, manic glee is clear in both the pirate's glance and in his brilliant, wicked smile.
15 May 2006 @ 12:35 am
[OOM: All sorts of things happen in Singapore with Jack and Del and an old man who knows more than he'll ever tell. And if you're nimble and light, you'll get there by candlelight.]
12 May 2006 @ 09:30 pm
[OOM: Yo, ho, yo, ho, a pirate's life for me!

Or in other words, Captain Jack Sparrow and Del of the Endless set off on the start of an Adventure.]

[OOC: Psst. Ignore any and all previous date stamps. Time's twisty when it's those two, anyway. This is happening in some version of the present. Really.]
