As previously stated I'm enjoying the story a lot. Have you determined an ending?

I look forward to seeing how it develops. Is the story just about this one voyage, or does it cover all of Blackthorne's life? Or both!?

It's just about this one voyage. I've been writing bits of Blackthorne's story for 20 years now. This one takes place prior to most of what I've written.

Really? Nice. I run an RPG and unlike most GMs, I have a character as well (I am good at not meta-gaming). My current campaign has been going for nearly twenty years, following the same main character. Other players come and go, but my guy has been at it a while....

Maybe you should publish more of his story.

Similar story here. Most of Blackthorne's story was created through free-form roleplaying/cooperative storytelling. Almost none of it has been written into narrative form, though, so it's not publishable.

I did work on a novel with another writer, but it was never finished. The one Blackthorne short story I submitted for publication didn't get any interest.

Aye, I get you. Almost none of what I have done is in the right format for publishing. Ah well. I meant publish on here. The story is really good.

That is an interesting event involving Mrs. Henry and the Captain. Smile

I thought it could happen eventually, but not as quickly as it did.

Same. I appreciate that you made it clear what happened without gory detail. I have seen some "fanfics" (for lack of a better term) that read more like pornos. Thank you for avoiding that.

Yeah, it can get kind of gross when it's described in too much detail. I don't like writing graphic sexual stuff. It's more of a challenge to describe it obliquely and tastefully without getting into cliches. Hopefully I managed it OK.

Another interesting turn of events! The good Captain certainly knows where items could be hidden on his ship
