Ahoy! T’day be Talk Like A Pirate Day! Can ye believe that this here be the third anniversary of when I made me first swashbuckler photostory series?! Wish I’d known that TLAPD were comin’ up so soon. I had wanted t’start me next pirate series, but now it’ll have t’wait 😉
Okay, I’ll stop talking like a pirate now LOL! So today I have a lyrics photoshoot featuring Victoria and Jake! The song is “One Of Us” from The Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride. 🙂
Evil as plain as the scowl on his face (I added in scowl 😉 )
Deception (an outrage!)
Disgrace (For shame!)
He asked for trouble the moment he came
And he is not one of us
He has never been one of us
He is not part of us. Not our kind.
Someone once lied to us.
Now we’re not so blind
For we knew he would do what he’s done and we know that he’ll never be one of us
*sighs* So sad. Isn’t Jake horrible?! And awesome?! XD Well, you know, horrible then, awesome now LOL! 😀
Oh! So I got some new glasses yesterday!!! I’m really excited!! I’ve been wearing them pretty much since I got them! I don’t have to, but I do because I like them LOL! 😀
And also, I’m sorry about leaving you postless all week. There was just so much going on that I didn’t really have a chance to post. I will get the next part of Masquerade up this upcoming week! 🙂
TTFN! Ta-ta for now! 😉
The other day, my mom, my sister, and I went on a little shopping trip. My sister showed me this amazing Duster Jacket (as she is calling it) and I totally died over it!! It was too much money to buy just because and I didn’t really need it (but I really wanted it, so it felt like a need LOL!), so my mom bought it for me to give me for my birthday! So, I decided to make a doll sized version of it! 😀
Do you like it?? I think it came out great! It has two pockets, and the sleeves are cuffed up with buttons, too! Don’t you think it looks so pirate-y? I totally felt like a pirate when I tried mine on! 😀
Have a nice day! 🙂
Today is International Talk Like A Pirate Day!!! 😀
In just a couple of days- On the 21st- it will be a year since I started my very first photostory series. Do you know which one??
That’s right! September 21st is the day that I started “A Pirate Adventure”!! AND the reason I made it was because of Talk Like A Pirate Day! 😀
I have loved all of my pirate series, enjoyed every minute of making them, and have truly appreciated every single one of your comments on them! And I’m going to let you all in on a little secret-
I’m going to continue making pirate series for a very long time! I find that they are one of the easiest types of photostory series to make and I just LOVE making them! 😀
Now, in celebration of “Talk Like A Pirate Day”, join Victoria, Captain McGovern and her hearty crew, and Jake on their thrilling adventures!
Farewell, Maties! Enjoy readin’ them stories! 😉 😛
Jake went over to Captain Coronado to thank her again. “I can’t tell you how grateful I am to ye.” Jake said.
“Aye, I know ye are. Twas the least I could do.” Captain Coronado replied. Then she reached into her desk and pulled something out of it…
“Here, I want ye to have this. It will bring ye wisdom. But, ye must promise never to take yer eyes off it! Any evil pirate would die fer a special item as this.” Captain Coronado explained.
“Thank ye. And, aye, ye have my word.” Jake promised.
“Now then. Ye best get prepared for battle. Blackheart will have heard of what I done and I’m sure she’ll be comin’ after ye with ships and cannons. Ye must be ready.” Captain Coronado stated.
“Aye, we’ll start preparin’ for battle right away.” Jake said.
I had been talking with Siara, but as soon as I heard Jake mention battle I turned my head towards him. I didn’t want to have anything to do with a battle. But since Jake thought it was best, I knew it was only right for me to follow him- whether I liked it or not.
Meanwhile, Blackheart was on the hunt for me and Jake. I knew she would not rest until we were back in her cells.
“Captain Jones! Captain! Captain!” Blackheart’s deckhand called. “Aye, what is it?!” Blackheart shouted. “It’s a note! It’s about The Code!” The deckhand explained. “WHAT?!” Blackheart yelled furiously and snatched the note from his hand.
The note said: “Code number 12 has hereby been terminated by Captain Coronado- The Keeper of The Code.”
Blackheart exclaimed in disgust. She threw the note to the ground and squished it with her foot.
“YOU! Bring me some paper NOW! I have me own little note I need to write. Thar troubles are far from over…” Blackheart ordered.
“Aye, Cap’n!” He said and scurried off.
“Victoria, we have to be prepared to defend ourselves!” Jake stated. I had been talking with him about the battle. I know I had decided to follow him, but I just didn’t want there to be any battle.
“I know, but perhaps we could try reasoning with her first!” I said.
“Uh, ‘scuse me, but while ye were talkin’ a bird dropped this here note. Ye might wanna take a look.” Siara said.
Jake read aloud: “As Captain Blackheart Jones’ second in command, I regret to inform you that Captain Jones is dead. Ye are now free from her wrath. Captain Reed.”
“What? Sh-she’s dead? But how? What on earth happened?” I was in a state of shock. It didn’t make sense to me that she died.
“It don’t say what happened. But as the note said- we don’t have to worry ’bout her fighting us anymore.” Siara said. I know that Blackheart was evil and mean, but I still felt sad that she died.
Jake was staring at the deck. “I don’t know. This doesn’t make sense to me. Blackheart is the best pirate around. It doesn’t seem likely to me that she just died. Ah, well, I’m sure it’s true. We did get a note from Captain Reed…” I walked over to Jake and said-
“Yes, Jake. It’s all over. We may finally live and sail forever- in peace.”
We reached Monte Cristo Island in one day and went straight to see “The Keeper of The Code”.
“She ain’t here yet. We’ll have to wait a little while.” Siara said.
Just a moment later, she arrived. She was just about the fanciest pirate I’d ever seen and she looked very important, which made me even more nervous to talk to her.
“Captain, Coronado, lovely to see ye.” Siara greeted.
“Siara. These be the pirates ye told me ’bout?” Captain Coronado asked firmly.
Jake and I just stood there. I think he was just as nervous as I was!
“Well, now. Let’s take a look at The Code ye two broke.” Captain Coronado said.
She pulled out a huge book from inside of her desk. The book had every Code ever made written in there. She looked through the pages and the rest of us watched restlessly.
“Ah, here it be. It says: Ever thar be two pirates who form an attachment to each other, they be not permitted to engage in matrimony. If thar be pirates who enter into matrimony they’d better give up their title of pirate and never return. Or if that not be in thee head, then so they must give up thar first born.” Captain Coronado read.
“That’s just wrong. If a man and a woman of any title fall in love they should be able to get married!” I said angrily.
“But what ’bout the other Code that states- Every man for himself? If pirates be married , they’ll wanna protect each other. They wouldn’t be able to leave’m for anythin’.” Captain Coronado explained.
“Aye, but that could also happen with friends. Victoria and I have very good friends, and if they were ever in trouble, we’d help them. It’s not very different really.” Jake stated. “Yes, that’s true!” I exclaimed. I was so ready to leave and win this fight!
Captain Coronado turned her head. “Ye know, I ain’t been The Keeper of The Code for so long. But, as I am The Keeper, I can make any sort of Code I like as well as change some. So, I believe I’ll just do this…” Captain Coronado grabbed a pen and drew an “X” over that Code and signed her name underneath. My heart was racing “Does, does this mean-” I started and Captain Coronado finished my sentence-
“Ye may stay married and live in peace.”
Jake, Siara and I shouted for joy! We had won this fight and us pirates would never have to be afraid to marry again. Now all that worried me was Blackheart. What would she do when she finds out about The Code? I prayed that she would not come after us…
Look for Part 4 coming soon! 😀
It had been 4 days and we were still being held captive in Blackheart’s hideout. “Ugh! What does she want with us?!” I yelled as I slammed my hands around the bars of our cell.
“Victoria, calm down. We’ll be okay.” Jake said calmly.
“Jake, you were evil once, so you know how evil people think. If you were Blackheart what would you do with us?” I asked and once I finished my sentence I gasped. “Oh, Jake I’m sorry! I don’t know what I’m saying right now. I- I’m just so upset over everything right now.” I cried.
“It’s alright. I don’t know why we’ve been here so long. I don’t know what she’s planning, but as long as we’re together, nothing will happen to us. We take care of each other.” Jake said with a smile. “But what about her threats in the cave? She’s trying to separate us!” I exclaimed. “Victoria, she can never separate us. The Code states that if two pirates are married, they must give up being a pirate or-” Jake stopped talking. “Or what?” I asked. “Well- we’d have to give up our first born child.” Jake said sadly. “What?!” I asked, in a state of shock.
“Wait- what is that?” I asked. “What’s what?” Jake replied. “I hear footsteps… It must be Blackheart!” I said.
And slowly a young woman approached us. I had never seen her before, but I could tell she was a pirate.
“Who are you?” Jake asked. “My name is Siara. Don’t worry, I’m here to help ye.” Siara said.
“You can get us out of here?” I asked anxiously. “Aye. But we must move quickly. Who knows when Blackheart’ll come down here next.” Siara said.
“Yes, but I’m sure Blackheart keeps the keys somewhere else.” I stated.
“Don’t need’em. I’ve busted quite a few prisoners outta here. I know just what to do!” Siara explained.
Siara grabbed a hairpin out of her skirt and poked it in the keyhole. After a few seconds we heard the click- it was unlocked!
“Good work, Siara!” Jake said. “Yes, thank you so much!” I exclaimed.
“No trouble at all. Now we gotta hurry and get ye two to Monte Cristo!” Siara said.
“Monte Cristo? Why do we have to go there?” Jake questioned.
“We’re meeting the Keeper of The Code thar. She’s a friend of mine and I told her about ye. I’m tryin’ to help you two and many others as well. Ye aren’t the first pirates to fall in love, but ye be the first ones to get married since that Code was made. Now maybe, just maybe, she’ll change The Code and pirates will be able to marry again.” Siara explained.
“Siara, do you love someone as well?” I asked. “Aye, I do. The Code isn’t fair and that’s why we need to change it.” Siara replied. “And do you know what Blackheart wants to do to us?” I asked again. “Well, either she wants to separate ye (even if it means death) or she wants to take your first born child- if and when ye ever have one.” Siara explained.
I’m certain Jake knew I was scared since he grabbed my hand. I couldn’t bear the thought of losing my child or Jake. “Why is The Code so important to Blackheart?” I asked myself and off we went to Monte Cristo Island.
To be continued in Part 3! 😀
In case you have forgotten what last happened, please read the last part by clicking here 🙂
Jake and I sat still for a moment and we could hear footsteps constantly.
“Victoria, we need to get out of here. If we stay in this cave forever Blackheart will surely find us.” Jake stated.
“But, Jake, Blackheart and her crew are searching everywhere for us. If we leave the cave we will definitely get caught!” I said discouraged. “Well, either way we’ll be found, so the question really should be, where would we rather be discovered?” Jake said jokingly. “Oh, Jake, this isn’t a time for jokes!” I said very upset.
“Really, Captain Turner, ye should listen to yer wife. You see, the joke is all on you. Because thanks to me, you won’t ever be together again!” Blackheart said with a grin. “Now, put your hands up!” She ordered with a point of her sword.
We put our hands up, but I really wish Jake would’ve fought her! Although he didn’t have his sword.. “Jake, are we doing the right thing?” I whispered. “Yes, just do as Blackheart says.” He replied.
“Well, someone knows what they’re doing. Listen to yer ‘HUSBAND’, Missy, while ye can.” Blackheart ordered. Something in the way she said “Husband” made me sick. Like she really despised us being together. And what was all this “Never be together again” and “While you can” business? Was she threatening to kill us?
“Now, walk out of here and go to the ship. And remember, I have a sword and ye don’t, so no funny business, ye hear?” Blackheart said.
“What is Blackheart going to do to us? We’re captives now. If only Elinor knew where we were.”
To be continued in Part 2!! 😀

You’re not allowed to know yet, though. 😉
Okay, so that’s all for now! I hope you enjoyed hearing some news about the second season! Have a great day everyone! Bye!
It was a sunny afternoon and we were coming upon the city of Dale. Ever since Jake mentioned about Blackheart being there I hadn’t been able to keep my mind off it. So I went to go talk to Jake about it.
“Jake, I’ve been thinking a lot about Blackheart. If she is at Dale and if she sees us, what will happen?” I asked. Jake looked at me closely and could tell I was worried. “Don’t worry, Victoria. We’ll be okay.” He replied, but I knew he was just trying to make me feel better.
“Jake, what would happen?” I asked a little more demanding this time.
“It’s difficult to say. Maybe nothing if she doesn’t really notice us, or….” His voice trailed off. “Or what?” I asked. “Or she might bring us to the keeper of the Code. She is dangerous. If she sees someone not following the Code, she’ll do something about it. And well, we’ve been broken just about the biggest code.” Jake said with a sigh. He looked at me again and said, “I’m going to Dale alone. It’ll be safer if you stay here on the ship. Savvy?” He asked. “Alright.” I replied sadly.
Jake bought our supplies and started to head back for the ship. But something wasn’t right…
Jake turned his head to the side, so he could see in back of himself.
He was being followed!
Realizing who it was Jake began to run as fast as he could!
But then the woman began chasing after him!
When Jake reached the ship he threw the bag of supplies to the floor and ran for the wheel.
“Jake, what’s wrong?” I asked in a panic.
“Jake!!” I yelled. He was beginning to stress me out!
“I was being followed, Victoria. By Blackheart! She was wearing a disguise.” Jake said quickly.
“That means-” I began, but Jake interrupted me.
“-We’ve been discovered.” He finished my sentence with a look of worry.
I looked over the rail and called Jake over. “She’s following us.” I said as I spotted a ship.
“I know. We’ll have to abandon ship and take the row boat to the nearest island. If she finds us, it will not be good.” Jake explained. I was sad to leave our beautiful ship, but I knew there was no other alternative.
We reached an island at last and hid our boat under some palm leaves. Then we spotted a cave and knew it would be perfect for us to hide in.
“Oh, Jake! What are we going to do?” I asked. “We’ll wait here. And hopefully we’ll be able to leave by morning.” Jake replied. My mind couldn’t help but wonder what would become of us. Then suddenly, I heard a voice…
“Jake, did you hear that?” I asked. We listened for a moment and then heard a woman’s voice saying, “Find Captain Turner and his wife! When you find them, bring them to me. They must pay for breaking the Code!”
Jake put his arm around me and said, “Blackheart…. She’s found us.”
THE END!!! To be continued in the second season! 😀
We got to Fire Cove, where Jake’s hideout was, in one day. We were going to free Elena and fight for The Cube of Light!
Captain Elinor and I entered the cave and started on our hunt for Elena and for Jake.
And then there, lurking in the shadows, was Jake!
“Captain, Victoria, I thought ye might show up.” Jake began. “If you’re looking for Elena she’s right down that passage way. You can go get her, Victoria.” Jake finished kindly. After what he’d done I did not even want to see him or talk to him, but I obviously had no choice. “Go on, Victoria, but be careful.” Elinor warned.
Jake laughed, “There’s nothing to be worried about. I told you she’d be safe.” He said.
“Yes, and how many other things did you tell me, Jake? How many times did you lie to me?” I asked my eyes welling up with tears.
Jake looked at me with guilt. “I promise, Victoria, she is safe and unharmed.” He said and I went to Elena’s aid.
“Jake, give me The Cube!” Elinor demanded, pointing her sword. “Why should I do that?” Jake asked.
Elinor studied Jake. “Because you love Victoria. Do this to make her happy and get her back.” Elinor said.
Jake turned away from Elinor. “She doesn’t love me. And she never would. Even if I did give it back, she wouldn’t trust me.” Jake said quietly.
“I think if you were to let Elena free, give back The Cube of Light, and apologize to Victoria, she would forgive you.” Elinor said.
Jake turned to face Elinor and took The Cube out of his coat pocket. “I’m not doing this for Victoria, I’m doing it to be a good man.” And with that The Cube of Light was back in Elinor’s hands.
Finding Elena was a bit difficult, but soon enough I saw her.
She was locked up in some sort of a jail cell. “Elena! It’s me, Victoria!” I whispered. Elena looked at me and she could not believe her eyes. “Victoria, what are ye doin’ here? Where’s Elinor?” Elena asked quickly.
“Everything’s fine, Elena! Elinor is here, but she sent me to rescue you! Come now, we have to move quickly. Jake promised you would be safe, but I don’t know if he told his crew about that. Do you know where the keys are?” I asked.
Elena moved her head to point, “Over thar! But be careful there’s a tra-” Elena was cut off by the sound of rocks rumbling overhead.
“What is that?” I yelled.” Elena shouted, “A trap! You have to hurry!” I started running to the keys on the hook, but was tackled to the ground by Jake,
“WATCH OUT!” He yelled just before he was buried by rocks. “No. Jake!!” I yelled.
I started moving the rocks to save him. It took some time, but I finally got them off of him.
And there he was, just lying there all dirty and injured. “Jake, why did you do that?” I sobbed.
He looked up at me with a weak smile. “Just as before. I-I couldn’t let anything happen to you. I love you.” He said with tears in his eyes.
“I love you, too, Jake.” I cried.
Six weeks passed and Jake was almost fully recovered. But news that is much greater than that-
Jake and I were married, but in secret, so that no other pirates would know.
“We’re coming up to the city of Dale. We’ll stop there for some supplies.” Jake said.
“Isn’t that kinda dangerous? I mean, since we’re pirates and we are married.” I asked, but Jake didn’t reply right away.
“We should be fine. As long as Blackheart isn’t making port there right now…”
And that’s where we end Part 5! Look for the Grand Finale coming soon!!
