    Summary

    If, as ye take this broad recounting, aught has looked odd in the culture of whalemen— indeed, should you be anything less than a salt-seasoned veteran of that most noble fishery, and particularly to that fellow among ye whose feet have never left the hard-packed soil of his native land, that veritable tree of devout landsmen from whom roots may well spring into the earth or all life exist in a bulb beneath its surface— to you most especially, it may be necessary to preface the next recounting with an explication of the whaleman’s notion of the holiday.
     

    During the search for the leaking barrel of whale oil, a detour becomes necessary.

    A light-hearted vignette inserted into the story of Moby Dick, fulfilling that fundamental human desire to give the crew of the Pequod a beach episode to relax.

    Summary

    This is a cogent vice thou hast here, carpenter; let me feel its grip once. So, so; it does pinch some.

    Oh, sir, it will break bones—beware, beware!

    No fear; I like a good grip; I like to feel something in this slippery world that can hold, man.

    Summary

    Ahab has no heart that beats, no lungs that heave, no eyes that see, and yet he knows himself acutely: the white flesh at his back, the binding cord, the black depths. He is dead, but his soul is not flown, tethered as if by its own line. The whale is a titan bound for Tartarus, and he is dragging Ahab with him to the abyss.

    Summary

    Things go wrong when a man steals a fishhook from Captain Ahab and vows revenge on the new lifeguard for a really petty grudge, over a not so tiny slight. Can the Storybrook gang figure out how to deal with this mythical feud?

     

    I don't give credit for Disney to take my fanfic, the characters mostly belong to Disney and Polynesian myths, apart from Captain Ahab himself.

    Summary

    When the elegant Captain Hook is kidnapped by Pan's Shadow, Rapunzel's friends and family travel to Neverland on a rescue mission to save Tinker Bell's boyfriend from the clutches of the Boy Who Never Grew Up. But this is not the Neverland you remember. Instead of a magical paradise, the island has been reshaped into Pan's personal playground-turned-battlefield where the horrors of anti-Polynesian genocide and eternal immaturity outweigh the powers of faith, trust, and fairy dust. As the ultimate showdown ensues between the indigenous inhabitants of the kingdom and their oppressors, the Princess of Pampers quickly becomes the kinky playmate of a grown-up and sexually frustrated Wendy Darling.
