    Summary

    If, as ye take this broad recounting, aught has looked odd in the culture of whalemen— indeed, should you be anything less than a salt-seasoned veteran of that most noble fishery, and particularly to that fellow among ye whose feet have never left the hard-packed soil of his native land, that veritable tree of devout landsmen from whom roots may well spring into the earth or all life exist in a bulb beneath its surface— to you most especially, it may be necessary to preface the next recounting with an explication of the whaleman’s notion of the holiday.
     

    During the search for the leaking barrel of whale oil, a detour becomes necessary.

    A light-hearted vignette inserted into the story of Moby Dick, fulfilling that fundamental human desire to give the crew of the Pequod a beach episode to relax.

    Summary

    This is a cogent vice thou hast here, carpenter; let me feel its grip once. So, so; it does pinch some.

    Oh, sir, it will break bones—beware, beware!

    No fear; I like a good grip; I like to feel something in this slippery world that can hold, man.

    Summary

    Years ago, an infamous white whale attacked Captain Crozier's ship and killed nearly everyone on board. The captain, overwhelmed with grief and thoughts of revenge, started hunting the creature and never stopped.
    Among the survivors of that first voyage was John Bridgens, who is about to set sail again with Crozier, now a shadow of the brilliant captain John once knew. Henry Peglar, returning to his true love - the sea -, meets Bridgens in an inn the evening before the Terror, Endgland's most famous whaler, ships.

    Between years of whaling, dubious shipmates, new friends, and the ever-present threat of the great white whale, some sailors might just find something, or someone, worth fighting for.

    "Thou saw’st the locked lovers when leaping from their flaming ship; heart to heart they sank beneath the exulting wave; true to each other, when heaven seemed false to them"
    - Herman Melville

    Summary

    When Ishmael angsts over never having kissed his bosom friend Queequeg, the crew of the Pequod rally around his increasingly desperate efforts, serving up a cavalcade of romcom clichés in their misguided attempts to find Ishmael his happily ever after. They’re serious about putting romcom back into Romanticism—and if there ain’t no extravagant musical number sung in the shadow of a breaching whale, then by Neptune it ain’t love.

    Summary

    Queequeg was picked by the PPDC from a pool of thousands of candidates to be the new pilot for Pequod Prophet in the Oakland Shatterdome. The only problem is that he can't seem to find a single person to drift with and time is running out. And that’s not even mentioning the mysterious white kaiju being sighted around the world, an increasingly reclusive and obsessive Shatterdome head, and an attractive civilian who falls into his life through an open window.

    Summary

    Moby Dick is, at it's heart, a sitcom waiting to escape. I've heard that calling voice and have come to deliver it. Welcome to White Whale Grocery (the Pequod Street branch!) where the boss has a chaotic hold over his employees with a forty eight year grudge to sustain it, and honestly everyone only works here to pay the bills.

    A series of drabbles & ficlets.

    Summary

    "Here, boy; Ahab's cabin shall be Pip's home henceforth, while Ahab lives."

    Character-driven, featuring non-sexual bed-sharing, storytelling and a sort of mutual hurt/comfort vibe. Influences include the eponymous myth, King Lear and ... um ... that old joke about the Sunday School teacher and the squirrel.
