“Lookie here boys, looks like we got ourselves a rat...”
After witnessing the gruesome death of her parents, little 5 year old Roxie rushes from her home in the woods on the run from a wretched hunter.
In this AU, this little tiefling scurries through the shadowy allies of a small harbor city, where she sees from around a corner the docks with ships of all different sizes. Her eyes grew round and she continues to slip through cracks of town in fear of being spotted and killed...
Of course being a child she chooses the coolest looking ship she’s ever set sights too.
A pirate ship.
This little peachy thang rushes toward it, and sneaks on under the men’s noses as they take off from dock.
Hiding in a barrel knee deep in nasty brackish water, soon is she discovered when a crew member lifts and lid and curses in fright!
“THERE BE A DEMON IN THE MIDST!”
And other’s rush to the scene mustering the courage to peer inside.
But it wasn’t long before, “What’s all this here commotion about?” A booming raspy husk voice roars over the men’s heads, and there stands the captain himself.
Coming over he looks inside without hesitation or fear seeing the small shivering thing...
Taking her out he set’s this small youngin’ down and crouches in front of her, using his hand to tip and turn her head around in deep examination.
“Ye got ye name Miss?”
And sniffling the little tiefling’s tail curled around her own leg as she nervously and shakily replies, “R-Roxie.”
And so on and so forth.
I honestly was imagining a supernatural and natural mixture for the pirate crew.
A little bit of everything.
Roxie and the captain grow a special bond together, but it isn’t long before they meet Roxie’s hunter once more...
Very soon does the captain realize that he cares deeply for little Roxie as she considers him a father figure and they share wholesome moments and more❤️
I watched Pirates of the Caribbean and have been inspired by some pirate art and stories...
