I don’t want to alarm anyone, but we’re ten pages deep into this story now. Crazy! And I’m afraid you’re going to have to cope with the constantly shifting arrangement of the rigging, number of staysails, detritus on deck, etc. until I figure out completely and exactly what the Blanco looks like. Maybe by the end of this story I’ll know how to draw a boat?
Ungulates in general creep me out immensely because of the square pupil thing. Captain Hateja is a deer woman and I don’t know if they actually had the horizontal pupils going on but if they did, I can’t imagine they were very effective at luring very many men.
