    Summary

    Oh better far to live and die under the great black flag they lie. Naked, liberated, and willing to embrace their most primal urges. Frederic has turned twenty-one aboard the most hedonistic and sexually-charged pirate ship on the high seas; and despite engaging in raucous orgies on a daily basis, he longs to see what else is out there. Leaving his crew and heart-broken captain, Frederic seeks out to explore the worlds of sex and love beyond the ship he's called his home.

    Summary

    When he is almost thirty, a woman talks him into taking her 8-year-old ward apprentice.
    Thirteen long, full years later, his boy is leaving - and he won't stop him, of course not, but.
    He does so wish he didn't want to leave. Surely, surely he will not turn on them?

    Summary

    "I don't know whose ancestors they were, but I know whose ancestors they are, and I shudder to think that their descendant by purchase (if I may so describe myself) should have brought disgrace upon what, I have no doubt, was an unstained escutcheon."

    Summary

    Poor Wiggins. His father wanted him to join the priesthood, but due to a nursemaid's poor hearing he is apprenticed instead to Gregson and Lestrade. This policeman's lot is not a happy one, happy one. Who will save him from this horrible fate? Will it be his newfound love, the ample-bosomed Mabel? Or perhaps that only model of a modern consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes?

    Summary

    To say that Mabel is plain would be an understatement. She is ugly, and has no illusions about it. She has always admired a sense of duty in a man, and when she meets Frederic, it is love at first sight.
    Trouble is, he didn't see her when he swore to marry any one maiden, however plain, who would want him. So what does he feel about the promise he made and is bound by honour to keep?

    Summary

    The pirates try their hand at burglary. They really shouldn't have.

    "It had not, as people would normally tell him, all happened quickly.

    It had happened slowly.

    So slowly that, he keeps telling himself, he could have done something."

    Summary

    Ungoliant's more awesome than a modern Major-General; she'll feed on matters vegetable, animal and mineral. If this little description served to spark your curiosity, check out this silly song about a spider-shaped monstrosity!

    Summary

    What if the pirates from Pirates of Penzance, having resumed their ranks and legislative duties, were in the House of Lords during Iolanthe? (Note -- this was El Staplador's brilliant prompt; I was just inspired by it.)

    Summary

    25 years after the Pirates of Penzance story ends, at the dawning of a new century, the children of the original cast of characters struggle with questions of love and purpose. Written with tongue firmly in cheek. Please excuse any historical details that are not precisely accurate, after all, W.S. Gilbert rarely worried about that himself. :)
