Story Summary

A Corsair raid must have been a very frightening experience for the villages along the coast. It surely was reassuring to know that their sea-savvy Prince could be counted on to help them.

A drabble series featuring a 'piratey Imrahil'. A birthday present for EdorasLass. Many thanks to Tanaqui and Maurita for the beta, and a passing nod to Kipling for some inspiration.

What an incredible drabble series! You captured each segment so fully. The different scenes are crystal clear in my mind, and all flow together very well into a cohesive and entertaining whole.

I love your quick characterizations: complete for what the drabbles need, with many of them drawn in just a few words. Your "piratey Imrahil" was particularly wonderful - just perfectly as I'd imagine him.

Ah, what a great drabble series, Gwynnyd! Each drabble is a self-contained gem, with gorgeous details in a few deft words, perfectly suited to the PoV of the character.

And together, they are strung together into a satisfying story line -- and the whole is far greater than the sum of its parts.

Beautifully done!
