    In Chapter 102 of Moby-Dick, Ishmael mentions having tattooed whale skeleton dimensions on his right arm, and leaving other parts of his body blank to save space for a poem. As the title indicates, this is the poem.

    Summary

    Квикег вошел в комнату. Я чуть дышал, ощущая, как наливаются кровью мои самые мужественные части тела. Натянув одеяло по глаза, чтобы мой сосед не заметил странного румянца на щеках, я притворился спящим.

    Summary

    It is a well known fact that the Eastern Gate was guarded by Aziraphale. But the very designation of 'East' implies that there is more than one entrance, and more than one Guardian.

    Summary

    Captain Ahab's first encounter with Moby Dick, as told by an eyewitness who finds Ishmael's version of events severely lacking. More than an eyewitness, in fact, since our narrator is serving as the Pequod's surgeon at the time. Unfortunately, however, he is about as experienced at surgery as Ishmael is at whaling ...

    A note on the tags - this is definitely gen, but it's rather slashy gen. And while there are no graphic depictions of violence, there is a very graphic depiction of (pre-anaesthetic) surgery.

    Summary

    Ahab and Starbuck, on the homeward voyage after Ahab's first encounter with Moby Dick.

     Perhaps God grants respite even off the howling, pagan Patagonian coast, or perhaps it was Starbuck’s hand, which yet lay on Ahab’s leg, the two opposing forces – the frozen fingers and the fevered thigh – having gone some way toward reaching a balance.

    Summary

    "Here, boy; Ahab's cabin shall be Pip's home henceforth, while Ahab lives."

    Character-driven, featuring non-sexual bed-sharing, storytelling and a sort of mutual hurt/comfort vibe. Influences include the eponymous myth, King Lear and ... um ... that old joke about the Sunday School teacher and the squirrel.

    Summary

    AU: It's Adam Starblind's senior year, and he's returning to Westish, hoping to repeat the baseball team's previously successful season. Canon divergent because a few character do not meet the same fate as they do in the book. Spoilers for the entire novel.

    A The Art of Fielding/Moby Dick crossover fic (sort of, although it's more focused on The Art of Fielding), in which I redeem Adam Starblind from his misogynistic douchebag self by having him fall head over heels in love with the first mate of the Pequod (now a student at Westish College and member of the crew team).
