Recently I learned that it was actually uncommon for pirates to have “first mates”. While they had officers like a quartermaster (which Wings is also) and bosun (that’s Bones), the whole hierarchical mate thing is a terminology and structure from more law-abiding vessels. That said, instead of feeling like I’d done something wrong in already saying Wings was the first mate, I felt it was all the more appropriate; Goldgills is a bit of an unconventional captain, and it’s emblematic of the complete respect he has for Wings that he wants to let the world know she’s his right-hand (or left-hand, in his case) salamandrian.
…and now they’re fighting. Oh no!

Today Victor and I have been together for eleven years, and I’m in a good mood because I’m really proud of this page. So I decided to post it early!
