So I'm Claudia, aka thecynicalromantic, and I suppose I'm the admin. Caramellunacy and I created this group after complaining about the lack of groups for nautical adventures.
I'm 19 and I'm from New Jersey, going to school in Massachusetts. I must admit I have very little experience with actual sailing. Just a lot of experience reading about it. Besides swashbucklers, I generally read history and YA fantasy.
If all newcomers would condescend to introduce themselves here, I'll give ye rum.
I'm going to say the answer is that this one is more swashbuckling.
I couldn't find a decent swashbuckling group either (which is why we collaborated on this one).
I'm 23, have a penchant for sailors, pirates, and scoundrels, and am currently suffering through law school which seems to be convinced that I require a taste of the academic equivalent of the cat o' nine tails every few days or so.
So I read tales of adventure on the high seas to keep me from going mad. And I'm glad to be a part of this crew. Now Grog all 'Round to fend off the scurvy!
X marks the spot where recent talk about ocean can be found.
DO You know any better, you scurvy dogs?!
7> Have you read The Pirates Laffite? And is it good? I've been debating whether or not to buy it, or get it from the library and spend my doubloons on Bloody Jack and Castaways of the Flying Dutchman books.
Oh, I just got hold of The Angel's Command for $5 hardcover because the paperback just came out. I'm so excited!
And now I'm almost done with the Horatio Hornblower series; the only one I have left is Admiral Hornblower in the West Indies. I've been watching the A&E series which are great fun. Pellew is incredible. Anybody else seen it?
Admiral Karen's wedding
Ye be havin' to scroll down and be clicking on "Pirate handfasting." I be the bride.
I read the first Horatio Hornblower book a few years back (can't remember which it was, though, but I liked it). And we own the A&E dvd's of HH also. They're great!
I've recently gotten into reading romance a lot, so pirate-related romances would be fun I think (although I've only read a few).
I'm desperately awaiting Elizabeth Boyle's decision to write the story about the pirate Dash from This Rake of Mine.
I'll let you know if I find any pirate romances. The only ones I've seen were Jennifer Ashley's. And the one book I read of hers Penelope and Prince Charming didn't really impress me very much, but maybe the pirate ones are better. I'm extraordinarily tempted to try The Care and Feeding of Pirates. Perhaps we should start a thread if there's more interest...
I like most of the Horatio Hornblowers as long as he's preoccupied with Navy matters. I find them kind of hard to stomach when it comes to his romantic issues and his general self-recrimination. Luckily those bits aren't generally pervasive.
Pirates are facinating and much more interesting than naval history.
16MermaidPrincess Primer missatge
I'm Maddie, I've loved pirates since I was a wee lass. Happy to have found a forum on here, that talks about pirates. I'm thinkin that my favorite pirate is Grace O'Malley. Although I haven't been able to find much about her.
Your all sayin your favorite pirate, well what's your favorite color.
Pirate Flag Black
White as in Bleached bones!
Green as in I never brush my teeth!
Yellow, like a chicken!
Treasure chest Gold!
(These are colors I came up with for a pirate quiz I made awhile back)
I look forward to getting know all you savvy pirate fans!
Pirates make great stories! The closest I ever got to a piraty-sailing adventure was a carnival cruise. Oh, and I went on that pirate ride at Disney World, back before they upgraded it. bummer. Well. I can hold my liquer and I love rum. That counts, right?
Edited for redundancy.
