Wilson Kane wins a fortune and his future bride at a game of dice from the former pirate Balthasar. When he decides to go and get the girl, the pirate way, by kidnapping her, not only he finds out that she is more than a pirate could ever want from a wife... but that she has 4 identical sisters as well.
This discovery hits him when his men, who were supposed to help him out, each kidnaps a different girl... and none of them gets the right one! But Wilson Kane wants the girl he had met and no one else! Luckily for him it will be the girl herself to solve his problem and put an end to his dilemma...
a solution that will eventually fling her into a new way of life, aboard the Alidivento, across the Mediterranea sea!

By sun and candlelight. Colour by *elianthos80 on deviantART
I was so taken by the finishing touch ups for volume 2... I feel like I haven't been posting much in here and showing interesting things.
But we always have fan art! *_*

I am creating a few more fun games XDD It's surprising to see the results. (apparently it's very hard to get pea's profile)

It puts a lid on the Pifo vs. Doctor situation.

We discovered now that Callista never spoke too much but actually had interesting things to say all her life. What do you know? The girl is actually knowledgeable!!! In fact she probably read a lot and uses a Latin word to describe, in a very unique way, what she seems to read as a sexual or close relationship. Little does she know this word will indeed become the root for the English word: intercourse.
When Cassandra is not around the Devilish Duo cannot take action... or can it?
Yes, this is indeed the Little Mermaid. One of my favorite movie of all times... got me started in art and I wanted to thank the movie for being there and still drive me so much. My mother keeps saying: you sit at your table and draw and sing that friggin' mermaid song every day and you have been doing that for 20 years. Aren't you tired?

Alright guys these pages (which are not 15 and are not 18 but I think I went over 20 this time) mark the end of chapter 8 and volume 2.
But stay tuned... I am planning a little special and I will be uploading it one page at the time starting tomorrow... did you get that Doctor and Pifo's fans?
in the end my back cover turned out to be like this!
The flowers the doctor is holding are actually used in medicine so he is not just holding flowers for the heck of it LOL
but if you were to put the two covers together... you see Cassandra wearing those flowers! Hee hee hee
So he does use them for other purposes! ^___^/
Otherwise he would use chamomile for soothing and relaxing purposes (but also uses it for wound healing and some inflammations of the skins... and will probably use it on the girls if they have vaginitis and stuff ^^").
The other flower is a Daylily they actually spread in Europe around the XVII, particularly in England, as ornaments... but when they first arrived from China they were use mostly as food or for medicinal uses. It's diuretic and febrifuge (it's supposed to be an antidote against arsenic poisoning too).

In case you want to print it on regular paper and glue it on bristol board... then you need glue hahaahha.
Have fun... and please show me the end results! *_* I hope you have fun with these (yes, plural, I will make more)

Cassandra Pin Up by ~Dedasaur on deviantART
Sorry... I still have to go through: Martin Steeves, Josh Habel, Pifo and Quoque Tu.
It's kinda silly but it's like... Steeve Martin in reverse. I wanted a name that worked both ways, like mine... my name and last names can be reversed and they are both names. It works especially with my dad. In fact most people mix his name and last name all the time.
Then my mom, for a while, could not tell Steeve Martin's name properly... she kept saying Martin Steeves, Martin Steeves (I think she got confused with Martin Sheen too) and that got stuck in my head.
It's a silly reason but that's how it came to be.
I cannot quite remember how this his name came to be. It is a left over from the original story, when the protagonist was named Kyle... and I think it comes from The Guiding Light. If I am correct, back then, these two guys Kyle and Josh, were competing over Reeva. My friend Giorgia, who was writing the story with me, back then, liked the name right away and so we adopted it.
Originally Josh was not Kane's brother. They were rivals. He was supposed to be the other guy: the one who is supportive and understanding and in the end... withdraws from the competition because love is the higher thing amongst things. He was Giorgia's ideal and she was his mom all the way.
Then the story changed. By the way... The Kane and Habel thing is a pure coincidence.
Josh Habel was indeed called Habel way before Kyle turned into Kane. I cannot remember if Giorgia picked it because she was of the idea that Josh was like Abel and Kyle was like Cain. In the end it was a fun coincidence and I kept it and pushed it too.
Don't hate me, Pifo fans... the original pronunciation problem with Pifo was not a mere F for and S... the guy had a lisp and so everything was complicated but written with Sh... for S.
His original catchy line was a continuous: My name ish not Pifo it's Pisho.
Which in Italian could be meant as: I'm not Pifo I'm piss.
His catchy line would disgust even pirates and he would make silence drop and everyone stare at him like this O_o.
In the end a smart person would figure out and say: wait... your name is Piso?
Then the "Sh" thing was complicated to read and write, the piss joke was tasteless and to have a running joke so disturbing just 'cuz the guy is named... after a nap... really wasn't worth all the trouble.
But the name is cute so I kept it.
Quoque is not Quoque's real name. You'll find out his real name pretty soon.
Quoque is more of a nick for the fella... just like Cat and Foxy.
It comes from Tu Quoque!!! And quoque sounds very much like cuoco... the Italian word for cook.
How did he earn his cute nick name? I'll draw a special about it! Don't worry.
There's one more person I need to talk about: Call.
For him... I simply choose a name that started with a C that would go nicely together with Castalia, Callista, Cassiopea, Calliope and Cassandra.
The only boy's name I could think of was: Callimaco (the original Greek name would be Kallimachos). I did not pick it for any particular reason... it just sounded right.

I have to say that it's really big, much bigger than the pirate ship... I wonder how they look like when they are together *_* I wish I could bring my pirate ship here and then... battle! Muahahaha.
The other thing I love about this Lego stuff is the details... you have to put together little pieces that will come together to form a piece.

Inigo: Begin. You are using Bonetti's defense against me, uh?
Saturday, November 13, 2010
in his honor I wore my pirate sock - please admire the naked toe - and took pictures of some work in progress... this... will be after the duel though... so it's not going to be in this update but most likely in the next one... and maybe it will turn into a special too... because everything about Pifo is Special! *_*

Thank you all for registering with the Fan Clubs: 151 people decided to participate so far! It's awesome!
Counting also the people who chose the option "other"
that's how we are going:
Cat has 72 fans a 1/2 (bottom or top part?) XDD
Westley has 37 fans.
Kane has 16 and 1/2 fans (left or right?) XD
Foxy has 11 fans but noisy ones! yeah!
Pifo has 7 fans, mostly Italians.
Josh has 5 fans.
Somebody stated ALL that will give extra boost to the guys. Somebody else said 3 of them but left no names T_T so we'll never know and will be left to wonder....
Pretty cool, eh?

Last week I forgot to mention about the laudanum.
Mostly by 1660 the fashion had moved away from corsets and into stays. Truth be told our girls are so damn poor they cannot really affordo to be completely fashionable and updated, so they might be wearing unfashionable corsets still.
It is very easy to have people feel for not so good looking guys who admire the girl from afar and get all emo on the girl without even trying: you rely, feel connection, empathize, you are like them and I wonder... is that really the person you want to be? Well, not me! I can only sympathize with people who try and fail because that's how I live my life and having been close to death I cannot think of life as nothing else than an apple. I bite and chew.
So... no matter how good the comic is, after a while, it's just too easy to exploit certain formulas... I had problems even liking Wall-e for the same reasons (ah the droopy eyes, God spare me, what an easy trick to win the audience over!) I had to step away from looks... thinking: no looks are not everything... why do they force sad looks, ugly look and pitiful looks on me every time?
I got fed up... TT__TT
It's 30 over years of the same thing and the past 20 years reading manga has increased the percentage of this stereotype re-occurring in my readings so my tolerance level has gone down a lot. I got fed up a bit... forgive me. Not that I dislike them, I still read plenty, but at one point I felt numb and thought I had been reading the same story for 10 years... just written by different people. Then TV shows started doing the same... and movies... and I feel like Homer Simpson on lobotomy.
So I wanted to experiment and take a cool guy... destroy his self confidence and have him be the looser. Wanna bet I'll get complaints? LOL
Does he sit around and mope? No, he goes for it anyways... that should be something to admire... but no, he is good looking, that's not a standard thing... he needs to be categorized as obnoxious and snob or cool and prince like he cannot try and fail. Why? I think that could be interesting for a change...
