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!

I am not quite sure it came out alright.
Ochre and red oranges were very trendy colors back then. He is supposed to wear petticoat breeches but I cannot stand them so I tied them at the knee following Englishmen's fashion.
I also gave him a tie that came into fashion in the year 1660. (So Wes is fashion forward XDD).

The clog came from the upper deck. Cat takes the clogs off only when he climbs hand-over-fist... He then jumped down like he did that one time he gave the hairband to Feetsie.
Kes is in a very good mood. Even so her behavior gets more and more confusing. Why? Because she is a human being. When it comes to Cassandra things cannot go the usual, obvious way, it's because of her upbringing mainly.
P.s. about Kes.
The Doctor is becoming very good at understanding what is going on with his girl. He might not get everything right but he knows what he feels and she definitely sends him good vibes. Besides... Cat and Foxy have figured that out too: Cassandra says one thing and does its opposite. Pea had told us so too.
The reason why he did not snap right away at Josh, in this chapter, is that Kes' reaction is simply nonexistent.
When they kissed she clung to his neck and fell asleep in his arms meaning to say that he managed to gain her trust again and things were getting sweet.
When he pushed her away, after the haircut, she threw stuff at him and broke his head and she was heartbroken again. Again he had to gain her trust... but their relationship and proximity level had already shifted. If you think about it he undressed her and all she gave him was a pinky-up-evil-eye... the Kes way.
Eventually she let him fall asleep in her arms. When she didn't want to be kissed she put a hand on his mouth but still pushed with her whole body against his.
Their level of intimacy is rising and building up. How do you get so close to someone you don't care for? You can't. Especially if you are not a "physical" person.
Do you ever see her hug Cat or Foxy even though they are good friends?
Do you ever see her hug Pea even though they are so close?
When it comes to Kes... she may as well say "yes", "no", "I'm a evil strawberry from outer space" and would make no difference... all you have to look at it's her gestures and behavior.
She had 2 focaccia bread with her: clearly one for her and one for the man who never has breakfast. She definitely would have found a contorted way to give him his.
If she wanted to just run away and distract him she would put both focaccia in his mouth. Or she would just run away keeping both of them.
That's how she is. She is complicated and that's what makes her funny and fun for me to draw. But Cat and Foxy are right... she is a sweet girl. She'll be adorable in a contorted way for a while... until she understands that she does deserve a shot at happiness just as much as Pea whom she deems superior. Right now she is fairly scared, approaching independent thinking, approaching a rite of passage... and all by herself!

"So began their love, the boy happy and amazed, she happy and not surprised at all (nothing happens by chance to girls). It was the love so long awaited by Cosimo and which had now inexplicably arrived, and so lovely that he could not imagine how he had even thought it lovely before. And the thing newest to him was that it was so simple, and the boy at that moment thought it must be like that always."
"They knew each other. He knew her and himself, because truth be told he never knew himself. And she knew him and herself, because even though she always knew herself, never could she recognize herself in such a way."

I've decided to add a FAQ page to the blog to answer to the questions I receive more often.
Be patient with me, I might be able to answer to all your comments and questions again in 40 days... then again maybe not!
But since I don't have a lot of time... I think you'd prefer it too if I spent the time drawing. If the FAQ did not answer some of your questions let me know and I will update it :D
Gotta rush to render now!

Avrete notato che lo speciale Wes e Kes non si trovava alla fine del capitolo 9. Non era nemmeno all'inizio del capitolo 10!
Questo perche', proprio come per la Canzone di Callista, l'ho impaginato separatamente... ma non avevo trovato ancora due minuti per metterlo sul blog decentemente.
Eccomi qui, quindi, con la versione flash di Issuu (per quelli che amano scaricare i capitoli in pdf da issuu prima che metta online il volume sul blog).
It is not at the end of chapter 9 and was not at the beginning of chapter 10.
That's because, just like the "Callista's song" I paginated it separately.
So I finally found two minutes to upload it and post it (for those of you who also like to download the chapters from Issuu before I release the volume in pdf.).

Where she lives the most common type of whale available would be the Sperm Whale.
If you gaze toward the sea from the coast all you see is something like this... and it can be mistaken for something else.
The only time I saw a Sperm Whale I was pretty high on a cliff (as tall as a mountain actually) and I figured out it was a whale only because I saw the foam and water squirting.
I told my dad: that's a funny looking rock.
He said: that's a whale.
I was 21. I was in Sicily.
Black cliffs and shores? Weird looking rocks and smelly water?
You are on a vulcanic island.
It could be Stromboli or Vulcano.
The beach are not made of sand but of beautiful black pebbles.
What the girls are collecting is something like this:
Many Sicilian islands are famous for their black shores.
What you see as the hot springs is something I came up with making a journey to the past.
This is the Alcantara gorge. The water, here, is actually freezing cold! But... at one point it might have been hot (I am talking about the beginning of times LOL). I mixed hot springs with this kind of lava based rock formation. Pretty, eh?
The doctor wants a tub... because he is circumcised.
It's not a matter of being ashamed or shy.
The foreskin removed, the glans becomes very sensitive and you want to take care of hygiene also a little better.
The water being hot, crowded with filthy pirates... the doctor, all in all, is worried mainly about his family jewels and manhood. They might be at risk XD. So maybe he does not take his bath very hot and he takes it in clear water too.
Pifo is cleaning his teeth using a stick.
You rub it up and down and get the job done. You can use any kind of root or soft stick... like a branch from a sambuco (elder) tree!
So Pifo... good job, you are taking care of your precious smile the right way!
What is the lady doing? She carries a basket on her head...

for once I am going to talk about something serious before we go back to our usual silly selves.
One of our friends has brought up a very interesting issue w/link:
This community is trying to raise awareness and funds to help the Australian Red Cross with the QLD flood.
Maybe there are more Australians among our readers who could help but even if you are not Australian you can help, we are an international crew, after all!
There's a lot of us pirates out there... and we must always help each other we are a band of brothers and sisters.
BTW: whenever you have issues you want to talk about that are close to your heart, do not hesitate to contact me: pirates will come to the rescue... or will try to do their best.

I need to get ahead of my game, my parents are coming to visit next week and I don't want my posting to get all messed up!
