This serves as a teaser for the story I'm working on now, which is about the explorer Captain Quint Fluffycheeks and her discovery of modern-day Quintona. I wrote up a backstory that relates to this image a while back. I'll link it for reference, but it needs some serious updating: The History of Quintona
Quint Fluffycheeks and Maxine Lemonlimes hailed from the kingdom of Aussentee and lived during the late 1400s into the early 1500s. During this time period, the kingdoms of Eurantus in the northern hemisphere were sending out explorers to find trade routes or new territories to colonize and take resources from. Aussentee, despite being in the southern hemisphere and completely surrounded by water, was not intent on missing out on this exploration craze. The king and queen decided to commission two captains--one to travel east and the other to travel west. Quint and her crew were set to sail west. I'll stop there to avoid spoiling the adventure. While this story is reminiscent of the original backstory, there are many changes and there's a more complex plot.
Oh, and Quint Fluffcheeks and Maxine Lemonlimes are my birds. Maxine recently passed away, though. They don't have surnames in real life; I just gave them these for the story.
