Pirates Ye Be Warned

Prince Imrahil metes out the harsh justice of the Seas.

MEFAwards 2008: Nominee – Races: Men: Gondor Drabbles


The pirates’ leader was finally found hiding in the dank bilge.

Brought before Imrahil onto the blood-spattered deck, he bowed obsequiously, pulled a hip-flask from his motley garb of leather and tarnished brocade, and proffered it with a gap-toothed grin.

The prince, unmoving, regarded him with stern contempt. “I make a point of avoiding familiarity with pirates. Whereas you have an appointment with the gallows.”

A curt nod, and two Swan-knights marched the pirate to his surviving crew.

Imrahil resolutely sheathed his sword, then said aloud, “The ship is too heavily damaged to keep. Collect anything useful, then torch it!”


- The title is an inscription on a sign in “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl”, and Imrahil’s words to the pirate are quotes (the second slightly adapted) from the film.
- It seems necessary to emphasise that this is not supposed to be a “real” cross-over; the featured pirate is not Captain Jack Sparrow.

20.10.06 B-drabble for Isabeau of Greenlea, who I know to be quite fond of the combination of Imrahil and pirates.
