P is for Pirates and Princesses

"You're pirates.  Hang the code, and hang the rules.
They're more like guidelines anyway." 
-Elizabeth Swann, Pirates of the Carribbean

Captain Kidd *  Blackbeard the Pirate * Captain Horatio Hornblower * The Black Pirate * 
Captain Calamity * Long John Silver * Captain Hook * Yellowbeard * Jack Sparrow

Who can resist the roguish charm of a pirate? Very few, my friends, very few.  J'adore a good pirate adventure, they're always filled with mystery and intrigue, treasure chests and oh, rum?  And, of course barrels of witty pirate repartee.  Pirates certainly live the high life, sailing the seven seas on swashbuckling adventures, chasing treasure maps, fighting off rival pirates, more villainous than themselves, and when they are not crossing blades? Why, -they are sweet talking a bevy of beautiful blue blooded belles.  I may have fluttered my eyelashes whilst writing that last sentence, I cannot deny it. See - how affected I am by these rogues?    

Shall we talk about the locations of these romances, ahem, I mean adventures?  Madagascar, Jamaica, Mexico, New Orleans, Java, the South Pacific...  (le sigh)  Pirates, adventure and romance.. makes me want throw down my pen, grab my favourite cutlass, and large floppy pirate hat, have the maid pack my steamer trunks, and run headfirst along the docks to board the nearest cutter.  How about you? Are you partial to an adventure on the high seas?

  1. haha, if they're hot pirates, than it's ok, but if they're old with one eye and wooden leg - than...no thank you :D lol.

    but to be honest - I'm afraid of deep waters, so no pirate adventures for me :(

  3. Some of the hot, sexy pirates in the movies are pretty cool - but I wouldn't want to run into any real pirates out on the seas. I am doing the challenge too :)

  8. Yes, pirates can be perceived as romantic but those places really strike a chord in me. I just finished writing about the South Pacific!

  9. Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to stay on a ship for long. I have HORRIBLE motion sickness. I'd step on, feel the sway of the ship, get nauseous, and step back off lol. *fails as a pirate*

  10. LOVE me some pirates! Although I have to admit, the first Pirates of the Carribbean movie was by far the best of the three! Of course, will have to wait and see the latest installment...I may change my mind.

    One of my very first stories was about pirates!

  11. I love the Pirates of the Caribbean movies but some of the real pirates of todays society scare me a little.

  12. I agree with Regina.... The Pirates of the Caribbean--those types of pirates sound fun (with the exception of scurvy). Current pirates sound terrifying.

    But I'd follow Orlando Bloom just about anywhere, pirate or elf. I'm not picky.

  14. I think an adventure on the high seas would be awesome. I just have on problem with it.... I get terrible sea sickness. So that leaves me out. But I do LOVE a good adventure. I'll just have to use other transportation....

  16. Hmm love me a JOhnny Depp pirate but not the real-life ones who're maurauding the seas around the Phillipines etc and taking real people hostage and at times killing them. Not funny.

    Just reading yesterday that the producers didn't like the way Johnny Depp played Sparrow and said it wouldn't fly, ha ha. Johnny proved them wrong.
