@Will: Thanks! Smile

Am just sorting out ships for characters. Because yes, I am that much of a geek Wink Am using Pirates of the Caribbean as my ship references and would like these ones, if it's ok with everyone:
For Barbossa I'm thinking HMS Providence (36 cannons + 4 swivel guns)
For Derek I can't decide between HMS Endeavour or HMS Interceptor. Endeavour's bigger (106 cannons) than Interceptor (16 guns + 2 swivel guns); however I still can't decide whether or not to have Derek be part of a large crew or a small.

Help, anyone? Would appreciate some advice/thoughts as to the size of Derek's crew... I'll even give you cookies Smile

For anyone wanting to get a ship, here's the reference website I used:
http://www.enotes.com/topic/List_of_ships_in_Pirates_of_the_Caribbean#HMS_Endeavour
Pretty much all the ships staring in the POTC series are there.

Yes, I am actually this insane haha.

I'm so sorry, for just leaving like I did earlier! But my dog went down hill and I had to take her to the vet. She has to stay over night, for I'm less then happy.

Cath: I say the Interceptor for Derek. As for what size, hmmmmmmm. Idk...

For the site. Saying it's all fiction, not completely historically accurate, not for profit, blah blah blah. All that crap. Just in case morons can't already figure that out.

Some senior law students heard me telling a friend about it in class, and they all said I must put one up just in case. Then my professor got in on the action and added that he too thought I should do one since it's supposed to be 'historical', and if some troll finds an error and raises a fuss, the site might be doomed.
Looking back on it, it is good thinking and advice, though I'm wondering if they're all rather over-reacting... Ah well *shrugs* It's up now, so won't have to worry haha.

I have the coolest one on my DeviantArt account:
Unnecessary disclaimer: I own everyone in CSI, CSI Miami, High School Musical, Bones, Shortland Street, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean, Disney and Rammstein. I keep them in a box under my bed, letting them out regularly for exercise, although Horatio, Grissom and Flake need to be let out more often, otherwise their glasses will fog up.
Very Happy

So, I was thinking: this town that we all occupy has got to be a mix of Boston and Tortuga/Port Royal.
Why Boston? Because it's the only sea-faring town that I know well enough in that period. And the other two are just obvious choices...

Simply put: while the actual town part will be all proper, the dock part should be much more relaxed and not caring. So for example, no one would care or blab about a pub brawl that may end up with several casualties; shipyard owners don't care who they do business with as long as they get money, either pirate money or navy money, doesn't matter. So yeah, stuff like that...

So that's my two cents worth for the evening. Just wanted to actually state what the town seems like/is sort of based on, just to avoid confusion and such.

Had the oddest/funniest dream:
Will began singing 'We are one' to Cath's and his daughter (way to think ahead brain XD) who was having an angsty moment, before Catherine joined into the song. Then by the chorus the whole crew casually joins in while still working. So it was like a giant Lion King pirate musical.
It was so epic! Very Happy

Awwww! Smile it sounds so imaginable! And yet so cute Smile
I'm always surprised how dreams show what we actually hope for, maybe not consciously, but subconsciously Wink

It was the cutest dream I've had in a while. It made me super happy Smile Also, woke up and first thing I do is start humming the song haha.
*grins* Yeah, that's what I love about dreams. Though some dreams are so weird sometimes that you can never even figure out what the whole point in it haha. As for the subconscious thing, well, yes maybe Catherine exactly what Will was thinking of that day in the tavern *grins, blushes*

*smirks* well, I actually didn't intend for him to get a nice lady that quickly, but I think it's a nice idea to go with what we got here and see where it ends Smile You play her sweetly and I think Will likes that Smile after all, he's not an ordinary pirate Wink lol
lets see if we get there, Will singing to their baby girl Wink

and I totally agree about weird dreams. I guess, sometimes there is no point in dreams Wink

I wasn't expecting anything that fast at all to be honest. I mean, she's no Sasha XD Although with how sweetly you play him, if that comes about, he'd be adorable in the role methinks haha.
And thank you, I'm glad you like how I play her Smile
