Yesterday there was a banquet hosted by Lady Aidem, well known as THE social light of that Corry settlement which is on the same island as Nova Crablandia, whose name I do not happen to remember.  It may be Nova Malto or it may be something else.  —Unfortunately I don’t happen to remember the island name either.  If anyone would like to enlighten me that would be nice for the Corries, since then I could “associate” these builds with that settlement. :pir-grin:

Anyway, getting back on the right side of the fourth wall, Lady Aidem’s banquet was attended by everybody who was anybody in that particular settlement.  And the news of the day was on everybody’s tongue.

“Did you hear?” Major Alphonse Harringram asked Miss Eleanor Pitterest as he escorted her to dinner.

Lord Twitteran, walking behind, began to titter already and leaned heavily forward on his cane.

“My dear Major, what is it?” Miss Pitterest asked.

“Why, you will never guess who it is that Eslandola has made commodore of their new pirate hunting fleet!”

“Never in a million years!” guffawed Lord Twitteran.

“Now don’t keep me on pins and needles, my lord.  Surely they wouldn’t have commissioned Commodore Evercrees again?”

“Of course not,” Lord Twitteran agreed, and Major Harringram rubbed his hands in glee. 

“And not Captain Dekker, Major?  He has quite the loss on his record, as I’ve heard!”

“No, not Dekker,” Major Harringram grinned.

“Well then, what is the jest?”

“My dear Miss Pitterest, you will die of laughter when I tell you.”

“Really, you are beginning to excite my curiosity.”

“Prepare yourself for something very amusing.”

“I am prepared.”

“Well, my dear, the man they’ve promoted to Commodore of the new pirate hunting fleet of Eslandola is none other than… none other!—than Captain Edward Argentum!  My dear, the new Eslandola Commodore is lodged securely in a Corrington prison at this very minute!”

Lord Twitteran began to slap his knees and Major Harrinsgram laughed until the tears rolled down his cheeks.

“Those poor greenies!” he gasped.


@Full Plate inspired me to do something with my dark red macaroni tiles.  Now I need a thousand. :pir_tong2:

Neat build, and lovely minifigs. I need that black hairpiece. And I couldn't quite tell how you did the dark red until reading your explanation at the end.

Good continuation of the story.

Ah, the return of text to the stories! :pir-grin:

Cool technique with the round tiles, and a nice staging of elegant minifigs. :thumbup:

(FYI, Miss Eleanor Pitterest looks a lot like my Lady Pauline Norrington, except for the hairstyle.)

Thanks Captain Dee!  I agree, that black hairpiece is really nice!

:laugh:  Coincidence there.  The selection of fancy ball dresses in the Brick Seas is fairly small it seems. 

Thanks!

The red carpet looks good, at first glimpse I thought the red parts were lobsters.:pir_laugh2:

Thanks Bodi!  A lobster floor would be quite interesting. :pir-grin:  I'm afraid I haven't got enough though. :pir-laugh:
