Black Sea [Closed]

By Lovely_Poison





Eleanor had never intended to sail out to sea, but when she hides on the ship to get away from the authorities, she ends up as a stowaway for a group of merchants. None of them are aware she's down there, and she's able to keep it that way for some time.


Not long into the voyage, however, the ship is attacked by a group of pirates, and she's the lone survivor, only to be found once they raid the goods down below deck.


Despite the cold and cool demeanor of the captain, she stands her ground and convinces them not to kill her, offering a hand instead.


Now, instead of sleeping in an alleyway, she has a bed, shelter, and a strange attraction to the one person on board she can't seem to get close to.


Can she break the cold exterior? Or will she be thrown overboard before given the chance?




WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:


I'm looking for a semi-literate to literate partner who is willing to flesh out details with me. The story is something I want to write together. This is why the description is so brief.

The captain is left genderless for a reason. I don't mind if they're female, male, non-binary, anything like that. It's your character. Play them as you like. Just take this seriously, please.

Real pictures are preferred, but not necessary. I'm willing to use illustrated if needed.

Communication. I myself am not that great at being on every day or replying every day. I understand life comes first, but at least keep in contact and agree to let the other know when we'll be replying or taking a break/hiatus, anything like that. I'm a very patient and understanding person, I promise.

Good grammar. I'm not great with this all the time. I constantly make mistakes, but I really don't want to try and decipher a reply.

This is a mature roleplay. ES rules still apply. Any romance that happens will either be skipped or taken off-site. With that said, please be at least 18+. I'm in my twenties and don't feel comfortable RPing with a minor.

Most importantly, have fun. This is just a small idea I had that I wanted to write and I want my partner to do the same.

PM me with the subject of "Black Sea" so that I know you read the entire thing. If I don't see that, I will simply assume you didn't read through and I will ignore you. I don't mean that in a rude way, but it's a pet peeve to go through and explain things or try and talk something over that is already presented above.

If you're interested then I can't wait to hear from you!

[center [i Day eight... Where exactly are we going, anyway?]]


[center Eleanor couldn't help but wonder where the ship would stop next. It wasn't exactly like she had intended to be aboard, but here she was, hiding behind some barrels, and constantly praying to a God that probably wasn't even there to not be found. So far so good, but her luck couldn't possibly last too much longer. The ship was bound to be at sea for a few months, and she wouldn't be able to hold out for that amount of time. Someone would catch her sooner or later, and they would either throw her overboard or sell her into slavery.]


[center She shuddered. She really screwed up.]


[center [b "Could be worse,"] she muttered to herself as she lay down on the wooden floor, staring at the space above her. She could have family that was looking for her, a husband who missed her, or even a sibling who gave a shit. Unfortunately, she'd never gotten any of that. An orphan for as long as she could remember, she survived mostly out on the streets once she was old enough to get away.]


[center Sure, at sixteen she'd found a decent job as a barmaid, but that had been temporary and had sucked for most of the time that she had been there. The owner had never been bad, but the patrons... ugh. They had been the worst, especially once they'd had enough to drink. Once she'd saved enough, she'd left, though it had taken far too long.]


[center So how had she ended up here, stuck on a merchant ship and hiding from the sailors above? She'd been accused of stealing just because she'd picked up an item to take a look at it. The shop owner had notified a guard outside and Eleanor had dropped the stupid necklace and run. [b "It had been so pretty, too..."] A sigh escaped her lips before she sat up, tugging at her hair. It was unruly. She really needed a bath.]


[center Moving over to the wall, she leaned against it and pulled her knees to her chest. She could go up on deck, let whoever was there know she was on board, and just see what happened, but part of her was too scared to. The sea had different rules. Nothing but herself would protect her out here.]


[center She rested her head on her arms and closed her eyes, listening to the sound of the waves and the creaking of the ship. She was going to go crazy like this...how much could one person take?]


[center It was long before voices reached her ears, loud and frantic. She looked up, wondering what could be causing the running footsteps above when something crashed into the side of the ship. She bit back a scream as everything shifted, sliding towards her. She barely scrambled away in time to avoid being crushed by a barrel. [b "What in the stars...?"] She stood, glancing around before she hurried over to a window to see what was going on.]


[center Her heart dropped.]


[center The pirate ship before her was huge compared to the ship she currently resided on, and by the sudden screams and clashing of swords, it was fairly obvious that they intended to take whatever they could from the ship. Why else would they attack them?]


[center The worst possible scenarios began to enter her mind as the smell of gunpowder filled her nose. Another crash rocked the ship, causing her to fall onto her back with a thud. She had to hide...that much she knew, but what would happen once the fighting was over? Would she drown with the ship? Or would she be killed?]


[center Hurrying back to her hiding spot, she curled up against the wall, placing her hands over her ears and closing her eyes. Not that it helped, any. She could still hear the fighting and feel the ship as it moved. It felt like an eternity before it finally died down. She didn't move, though. Not right away. She had to be sure that it was completely over with.]


[center After a few minutes of silence, she finally uncovered her ears, looking around before she moved to peak over the barrels that still stood. She couldn't even hear any footsteps above her anymore. Had the attackers left? Was the ship sinking now? She began to move away, wanting to go look outside of the window again, when the door across the room opened. Gasping, she ducked back down, placing a hand over her mouth and praying once more that she wasn't found.]

Her crew were ready to put up a fight, and hopefully they would be able to take the ship over all together. She reached up and touched the pendent around her neck. [#cc6699 "Soon daddy, everything will be mine"] she whispered lightly. She was walking in her father's footsteps, and this was the one and [i only] ship she wanted, and needed to get back. When she had been younger, was when her whole world had changed.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The Bandit ship was in her family for ages, and when it was stolen by the worst pirate on the seven seas, was when Isadora knew that her luck had finally run out. The battle to protect her home was quickly lost. The crew of the Bandit had turned against their captain and killed him. Isadora had been in her chambers when it happened. She was finally getting the ship back, and she had a whole new crew beside her. [b "Isa, the Bandit is getting closer. Are you ready for this?"] came the voice of her friend.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 She was taken out of her thought's and looked towards him. [#cc6699 "I am. I was just thinking about the night daddy was killed, and the ship was stolen. I didn't think I would ever have that ship back. The memories, the pain, fear, everything that ship holds will forever be mine again. It's because of you, and the rest of the crew that's making it better for me"] she said softly. Andrew smiled and pulled the hat off his head, and started playing with it. [b "I'm glad we can help"] he said softly.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 There was something more, and she knew it. It would have to wait though, because [i her] ship was just meters away now. [#cc6699 "Get the crew ready, it's time"] she said. Andrew nodded and placed his hat back onto his head, and turned back around, and gave the signal. Soon gunpowder filled the air, screams, the sound of swords clanging together. Everything was happening the way it needed too. Soon Isadora was in the fight along side her crew. That would make her look terrible if she didn't fight along with them. The fight was long, and soon it was over.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 The last of the other crew was thrown off the ship, and Isadora had free reign to the Bandit. She looked towards Andrew and smiled. [#cc6699 "It's time"] she breathed out. The male nodded and helped Isadora onto the other ship. The moment her boots hit the deck, the memories came rushing back. Was this a good idea after all? Did she really want this right now? She chewed her lip, and touched the pendent again. Of course. She had to do this. She needed to do this for her father. It was his dream after all.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 [#cc6699 "You check up here to make sure it's clear, and I'm going to go down below to make sure none of the bombs did damage to the bottom of the ship. We've done so much to lose this now"] she breathed out. [b "Will do Isa. Be careful"] he said softly. The woman nodded as she made her way to the door. She opened the door, and moved down the stairs. Her eyes had to adjust to the dark. She made her way down the stairs slowly, holding her breath the whole time.]]

[google-font http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Noto+Sans][noto+sans [size12 When her feet hit the last step she froze, when she heard a noise. Her eyes narrowed slightly, as she moved towards the sound. That's when she spotted a woman not much younger than herself crouched there. [#cc6699 "Who the hell are you?"] she snapped. She put her hand onto the top of her sword, and prepared herself for another fight, just in case. She bit the inside of her cheek, as she waited for the woman to speak up.]]
