Minnie: Well I'm the Captain and I think we should call it *ponders a moment* Ah, leave it with me *wonders off to think*
Hayley: *grumbles* I still reckon we should call it Bruce..
Peggy: I reckons we should get rid of th' cursed thing! *runs off when the shark leaps at her leg*
Teddy: Well I think it's a wonderful pet. We need a mascot and a shark is quite appropriate.
DD: *feels enlightened* Of course! Shark as mascot for as here dangerous, murderous pirates!
Charity: Still got t' name it..
Bill: isn't the capt'n doing that?
*in the mean time...*
Minnie: *pacing the deck* Hmm so a female shark... what in th' name o' Lud do ye call a lassy shark?
Lorey: *cleaning the BBQ and singing* Ye put th' beer on the grill and ye scrub the charcoal off... *scrubs viciously*
DD: *notices lorey* Oi dont ruin me BBQ!
*DD chases Lorey around the deck, the shark sees the action and joins in chasing DD*
Minnie: *eyes the shark, talking to herself* What if we called 'er shark but in a diferent language... *calls out to the crew* any of ye know another language 'sides that of us pirates'??
Charity: I be knowin jibberish :D
Peggy: As opposed to what ye be speakin now...
Minnie: Any other useful languages?
Teddy: Somehow I dont think getting rid of her is an option.
JS: Should someone perhaps be tellin Dan to stop runnin...hes getting th' shark all excited.
Hayley: What about Entre?
Sue: Or dessert?
Minnie: No ones eatin th shark! Tis a bad omen to eat yer mascot... we'd be doomin our voyage.
Charity: Stright to th' bottom of the Locker!
Toilet Duck as Seagul: Qwak-Caww!
Charity: Quiet you!
DD: [act]stopping near shark[/act] So do we ave a name yet?
JS: We coul' name her somethin' Japanese. There be Kirei, Dasai, Aishiteru, etc. Lots of names that all 'ean somethin'. Probably not very pirat'y names though.
Vixen: They actually be words? Sounds to me like gibberish.
Charity: If it were gibberish I'd be able to understand the language.
Minnie: [act]Ponders...[/act] Arrr...
Peggy: Why don' we just eat the blasted thing?!
Hayley: [act]holds up knife and fork, looking suddenly hopeful[/act] Second!
Minnie: [act]throws up hands, looking frustrated[/act] You want t' eat it? Fine, I'd like t' see y'all try!
Sue: [act]immediately advances with knives drawn[/act]
Shark: [act]looks at her and makes wuffling noise, flipping tail about[/act] Gfffmpf?
Sue: Yeah, that's right, Fluffy ol' girl, come to Auntie Sue...[act]Shark wuffles again. Sue suddenly stops, looking aghast[/act] I...I can't do it!
Sue: [act]flings arm over eyes, shrieking hysterically[/act] I...I can't chop a living creature into little pieces! I've gone soft!!
[act]Seagull lands on her shoulder and starts plucking at her headscarf. Without looking, Sue punches it off. Seagully falls over edge of ship, squawking indignantly[/act]
DD: That didn't look so soft t' me.
Minnie: [act]impatiently[/act] Sue, you ain't gone soft. You just punched a seagully into the ocean.
Sue: [act]uncovers eyes[/act] Hey, I guess you're right. :D So...Fluffy? Or somethin' Japanese?
Minnie: [act]nods[/act] Fluffy she be :D
Teddy: Oh, here [act]throws a mop into the ocean[/act]
Vixen: [act]pondering[/act] Arr...
Teddy: I agree. Quite a bit less scary when you know she's called Fluffy.
[act]Fluffy darts away after the mop, and Vixen stays on deck, wincing a little[/act]
Charity: Vixen appears to have overcome her morbid fear! Ale for everyone!
[act]A seagull - sporting a black eye - lands on Sue's shoulder again[/act]
Sue: [act]peering at it[/act] What's so damn interesting about me headscarf?
Hayley: [act]whispering, creeping toward Sue[/act] No sudden movements, righ'?
Sue: [act]lowers fist[/act] There ain't much good eatin' in these ye know.
Peggy: [act]hopping over from the other side with her peg-leg in her hands like a weapon[/act] We'll jus' catch us a couple more.
[act]seagull looks bored as Hayley and Peggy dive for Sue's shoulder...[/act]
*... and flies off at the precise moment that they dive for it, Hayley and Peggy landing in a heap on top of Sue*
Sue: *from somewhere underneath* Oye! Get off!
Peggy: *brushing self off, grumbling* Damn bird...
*Fluffy-the-shark lands on the deck, dropping the broom at Minnie's feet and looking up at her imploringly*
Minnie: Awww can't resist when yer look at me like that *throws the broom and fluffy-the-shark jumps gleefully back into the water*
DD: Argh we've got ourselves a shark that thinks it's a dog that loves fetch. I tell yeh, not goin' to end pretty *shakes head and mutters*
PML!! Firefall, that bit with the seagul was classic ;P
_ _ _ _ _ _ _
Charity: [act]passing around mugs of ale[/act] If I was a rich man.... [act]eye twitch[/act]..girl... na na na na na na na na na na naaa...I'd be havin all the money in the world..If i was a wealthy Giiiiiirrrrrrlllll!
Fluffy-the-shark: [act]tries to sing along...or is in pain :P[/act] Gwwwwwmmmffffffp!! [act]stops singing and drops broom at Charity's feet[/act]
Charity: I aint th best throw...but i'll try.
[act]Charity sets her ale down and winds up to throw the broom overboard. As she throws is she stumbles and falls overboard, followed closely by an excited Fluffy[/act]
DD: We ave ourselves a man overboard!
Minnie: MAN OVERBOARD!! Come on ye lot...we better get her back on deck...
Hayley: But she left her ale unnatended!
Sue: She can swim cant she?
Peggy: Doesnt look like it..... :-/
JS: Where be rope we can throw her?
[act]Suddenly, Fluffy jumps back on deck with the broom in her jaws...and Charity holding onto the end for dear life[/act]
Lorey: See, she be ok... [act]snatching ale[/act]
Charity: Someone else can throw [act]eye twitch[/act]
DD: [act]Picks up mop[/act] Looks ta me like we might just need a bigger stick soon. [act]Throws mop far out into ocean[/act] This un ain't gunna last long.
Peggy: Jest so long as ya leave me leg alone.
Hayley: [act]Eyes off more seagulls[/act] Aaarrrrr I be hungry!
Teddy: Do you mean to say that your body is requiring sustenance again so soon or are you only reiterating that your name is in fact Hungy Hayley.
Hayley: HUH???? [act]is distracted as more seagulls fly down attracted to the bits of potato salad that have fallen onto the deck from certain pirates clothing.[/act]
Seagulls: Ark, Ark, Ark, Ark
Fluffy: [act]Lands on deck with very small piece of mop[/act] Gwammmmpppppp
DD: Told ya, din I
Lorey: Well there goes swabbin' the deck.
Minnie: We be havin' more mops for the job, just no able bodied seamen willin ta do it.
Charity: Yer the Cap'n, order it done.
Minnie: But... then I'd have to chose someone and that could be considered as I have something against them, while someone I don't chose could be considered favouritism and if... *rants on for awhile*
All: Argh, we'll all do it!
Minnie: Well ain't that nice of yeh all! Now I'll have time to work out the details of my next dance... *wanders off to her cabin*
Bill: Not another dance.
DD: arr now, the capt'n has a good soul, 'least. doesn't order much and let's us get away with murder now and then.
Teddy: Who on earth would murder someone?
*crew generally mumble and look embarrassed*
DD: Well we're pirates - lootin' and murderin' is what we do, isn't it?
Lorey: Well at th' moment, we's got to be swabbin' the deck.
*collective sigh as all look at the deck littered with seagull droppings and bits of mop*
Charity: HooOoooOoook, Hook me up! I wanna feel the rain in my hai-
[act]Lorey lifts her mop and hits Charity who stops mid shanty...or lets just admit it..its not a shanty at all[/act]
Lorey: There...that be shuttin ye up!
Charity: What be wrong with me singin?
DD: Dont get us started....
Peggy: [act]trying to mop with Fluffy excitedly nipping at the tip of the mop[/act] ..will ye stop that!...
Charity: I 'ave stopped!
Peggy: No, I meant Fluffy.
Hayley: I'm sooooooo hungry!
Bill: Yer always hungry....cant ye be full for once!
Hayley: I would be if ye'd let me eat something!
Charity: Now how was my singin worse than this! [act]alludes to rasied voices [/act]
Lorey: Trust me...it was.
Peggy: [act]getting annoyed[/act] Fluffy...will ye leave me mop alone! [act]pulling the mop away from Fluffy, Peggy hits Dan with her mop[/act]
Dan: Hey! What'd ya do tha' for? [act]Dan pokes at Peggy with the mop knocking her into Charity[/act]
Charity: Oy!...I stopped singing [act]hitting Lorey's mop with hers[/act]
Lorey: It wasnt me!
[act]A large mop fight ensues..making Fluffy really happy as she goes about trying to bit the mops[/act]
Teddy: DO you get the feeling we're missing something?
Teddy: Lets get in there!
[act]Teddy and Vixen brandish mops and join in the fight[/act]
Minnie: [act]in cabin[/act] ....step, pirouette, step leap, step step, turn.....Argh! Its turn. step, step...I cant think with all this noise....what are they doin...playing hockey!...what ever hockey is....
[act]The captain comes up onto deck and sees the crew in masses of arms, legs, mops and eye patches..not to mention the odd peg leg..[/act]
Minnie: WHATS GOIN ON 'ERE!?
[act]The crew stop and look over at the captain[/act]
Lorey: [act]with her mop to Charity's face[/act] ...I'm ju.....just...cleaning...Charity's face. |:|
Charity: [act]eye twitch[/act]
Charity: It be true Cap'n [act]eye twitch[/act] |;)
Lorey: Aye, we finished swabbin' the deck and fell to swabbin' each other. o_O
DD: MMpppphhhhhhhhh [act]pushes mop out of mouth[/act] We'd all be finished that now Cap'n.
Fluffy: Gwwwwwmmmffffffp. [act]looks around for a mop to chase.[/act]
Minnie: [act]Looks at deck covered with bits of mop, blood and seagull droppings and shales her head.[/act] Yer cracked, the lot of yer! [act]Heads back toward cabin.[/act] Step, Step, Turn, Jump. Aarrrr that don't sound right. :-/
Cut Lass: And she calls us cracked! :P
pmsl! i particularly like this line "Lorey: *with her mop to Charity's face* ...I'm ju.....just...cleaning...Charity's face."
Charity: *Heaves self out of pile of pirates and mops* Arr well least we don't have ta do th' moping no more...
Lorey: *cleaning frypan with mop* It be a shame there be so much else ta clean...
DD: *is listening to something he thinks he ears on the wind* D'ja hear something?
Chairty: Tha' just be Lorey's pan sighing...
Peggy: Mmmphf... ARRGG gerroff me yer confused shark dog! *shoves fluffy roughly off the top of her* the lot of ye be good for nothin' leaving me there 'neath a blooming species confused shark!
Charity: There be something funny about the way ya be standing... *eye twitch*
Cut Lass: That be cos her peg leg be in Fluffy's mouth instead of on her leg.
Lorey: I be amazed she be still standing... o_O
Peggy: *looks down and sees her peg-leg is missing* Me leg! Me leg is gone! *hops after Fluffy, waving sword dangerously* I'll get ye and chop yeh into sushi, yeh bloomin' theif!
Charity: Tis not Fluffy's fault - yer the one who has a leg like a fetching stick.
Peggy: *turns on Charity* Are ye mockin' my peg leg?!
DD: Now I don't think Charity meant it like that.
Lorey: We all think yeh have the most fantastic peg-leg.
Peggy: *has calmed down and is looking dejected* Aye, but that don't change that the damned shark has me leg *sniffs wetly*
Vixen: *holds up random prosthetic leg that has floated by on the tide* Arrr?
Teddy: I think that looks like a suitable replacement for your leg, Miss Peggy.
Peggy: *mournfully* What kind of a real pirate am I if I don't have me peg leg? No self-respecting pirate could have a real-looking one. Tis just not right *sniffs again*
