"(Name)! Get back!" Arthur cried out as he parried a blow from a sword that would have other wise split his skull in two. His red coat turned redder by blood, his hat missing, and his white undershirt untucked from his brown pants.
"But Captain I-"
"That was an order (Name)! Now go!" He cut you off, never turning to look at you as he did his best to defend his ship.
"How did this happen?" Arthur thought to himself as he finally managed to flip his opponent over the side of the ship.
He looked around quickly, and he watched as you slipped into the cargo hold. Relieved, he went back into the fight.
-an hour later-
You peered out of the cargo hold when you finally heard the clang of steel and the shouts of fighting men die down. What you saw was absolutly gruesome. There were bodies everywhere, though luckily for your crew, they were mostly the attacking pirates. You quickly climbed out of the hold so that you could help tend to those who had been injured, as you were the ships

He’d gone and done it now though, the twerp had somehow managed to reverse time on his body and as such was back in his younger days. Unfortunately, his mind had gone as well, which meant he was stuck as a pirate captain in these modern times.
Alfred had called you, asking if he could drop the pirate off with you as he knew you had a way of dealing with Arthur. Sighing you dragged a hand through his hair. “Whatever, can you even get him over here without him slicing you up?”
Alfred gulped. “I hope so. See you soon.” With that he hung up and you threw a gaze around the room. It wasn’t that untidy, but you started straightening the place up anyway. Who knows how he would react.

Someone was behind you. They were going to take you. They already had Michelle, your closest friend.
These stupid skirts are too heavy. The heels make it too hard to run. You did your best, lifting the skirts and taking long strides. Your panting drowned out all noise, even the loud clicks of your heels.
The man caught up to you. His face was obscured by a plain white mask. The eyeholes were too small for you to see his eye color. The only thing you could see was the wavy blond hair pulled back with a blue ribbon.
He began to tie you up, ripping your dress and yanking you by your (h/c) hair. One of your heels slipped off, unnoticed by your assailant. Before he got your hands tied, you managed to rip out a chunk of his blond hair, throwing it near your shoe. That made him angry.

It sounded a bit funny.
But what did it mean?
These were the thoughts that filled your mind as you continued on your stroll around the park near your house. Earlier, Francis had come up to you and told you to ask Arthur to snog you...
When you had asked what the word 'snog' meant, he merely did that funny 'Ohonhonhon~' laugh of his, his perverted smirk growing a bit wider. He then said, 'Arthur will show you soon, ma cherie!' before walking away, leaving you confused.
You had considered looking it up, but being the lazy person you were you decided not to. Snog couldn't be a bad thing, could it?
...Well, maybe it could, considering how Francis had told you to ask Arthur to snog you. And, well... Francis is a big fat pervert. Snog could very well mean sex if it came from Francis. And you didn't plan to lose your virginity just yet.
Well actually, losing your virginity to Arthur wouldn't

I sat upon a smooth rock that sat above the waters surface. I stared out at the ocean. I wasn't looking at the brilliant sunset, I wasn't looking at the evening sky, dying the clouds different shades of red, I wasn't even listening to the sound of the waves.
I was looking for her. For the flicker of silver against the blue sea, a glimpse of those silky (h/c) locks I was waiting for her But she never came.
My crew was worried for me, it had only been three days since the incident, and even three days on shore was enough to drive me crazy. I had to get off land, I had to return to the sea But what if she came back?
I sighed and stood up again, like all the other nights, she didn't return. And I left, alone, and somewhat disappointed.
A sudden splash of water made me whip around, I turned sharply, my gaze flickering with hope But it was just the waves, lapping at the rocks. I glared at the sea, embarrassed that I had been fooled, a

One of your hands wiping away the sweat from your forehead, you straightened up and cracked your back. As your morning lecture had been cancelled, you were still in your pyjamas when Arthur started freaking out about needing his book.
So being the kind and compassionate girlfriend you were, you’d thrown on the closest clothes to hand, slipping some easy shoes on and ran towards his university like a bat out of hell.

Arthur's scruffy blonde hair still sat unbrushed on the top of his head, not that brushing the tangled mess would help to tame the locks whatsoever. His usually bright emerald eyes were dulled by the little amount of time he had actually been awake this morning, but his hands still managing to move swiftly. Years of tying precise knots had managed to train Captain Arthur Kirkland's fingers to move quickly and precisely no matter what the time or place.

Curled up into a ball with a carton of your favorite ice cream in hand, you only shot a quick glance towards the brunette, not even caring that she had entered your apartment, before focusing your attention back to the large TV screen watching The Notebook with so much intensity Elizabeta was sure you could burn a hole through the TV.
The green-eyed girl took that moment to observe your current living arrangement, her worry only growing at the scene. It seemed as though your life was revolved around your living room and kitchen. The windows were all closed, blinds down and curtains shut, not allowing a speck of sunlight into the small apartment. None of the lights were on, making the room dark, only illuminating occasionally from the TV. In the kitchen, half-empty boxes of chocolates lay about, along with more c

Alfred grinned, "You said we needed more help around the ship so these are my recruits! This is my brother Matthew and his friend __________."

The room wavered as the lights danced on the walls. The music beat against The blonde's ears as he made his way deeper into the sea of people. The people felt like they were closing in, swallowing him in their rhythmic dancing and pulsing auras.
It was a different experience for Arthur, being in the thick of the crowd. When Alfred or Francis even managed to get him into a place like this he usually stuck to the outskirts of the dance floor, he preferred his space out there. Often times he kept to the shadows, standing along the walls. There it was secluded, and quiet (despite the raring music) and he could actually think there. Besides, most of the tables stood alone, away from the crowd, making for an easy escape when he got bored. Tonight, however, was different. He had caught a glimpse of something. He had seen something that he hadn't expected to ever see there, something that had become the
