If you like Patrick O'Brian and his Aubrey-Maturin series, or if you want to be prepared for the below, watch this scene from Master and Commander (2003)
'The Nova ghosted along slowly in the night. The dog watch were keeping a steady eye on the stars, though some of them had begun to nod off.
'The quartermaster on watch, Richard Killingbeck, leant over the larboard bulwarks and peered down into the offing. Not much but dark shapes swirling around in the water; probably small sharks or the like. He almost nodded off, almost lost his composure as the captain came up to the decks to see how the weather fared.
'Killingbeck tipped his hat to his higher-up. “Sir,” he said, “I didn’t know you were up…”
'“At ease, Mr. Killingbeck. I did not come to inspect or chastise…” he trailed off a bit here, not explaining why he came up to the weather decks. Narcissus's eyes glazed over, as if his mind were somewhere else, far away from the ocean, far away from this ship, maybe back in England.
'Killingbeck did not dare ask, given his captain’s short temper. But he turned back over the bulwark and gazed presumed-leeward.
'“Our wind may come back within the next day or two,” Narcissus said, making the quartermaster jolt a little, “wouldn’t you say so, Mr. Killingbeck?”
'“Of course, sir,” Killingbeck quickly agreed.
'A long awkward silence passed as Narcissus stared up at the rigging and topsails, wishing, hoping for a wind soon. All these windless days took a toll on his nerves and made him question himself. No wind, maybe no God.
'“Well,” Narcissus said at last, with a slight pause, “carry on, Mr. Killingbeck.”
'Killingbeck tipped his hat yet again. “Sir,” he said, “have a good rest, sir.”
'At this, Narcissus stopped, smiled genuinely, and said, “Thank you, Mr. Killingbeck…”

Hello! Have fun looking at my varied works!
I love DeviantArt! It's a wonderful community where I can find people just as weird as I am.
I like the Beatles.
I like the Young Ones, a 1980s British comedy TV show.
My art is usually done in Photoshop CS3 and Flash. And my cloth art is done in various fabrics, trims and beads, with needle and thread. No sewing machine.
I try to write every day. I aim to become a part time freelance writer.
I listen to music every day. I can't go through a whole day without it.
I play a multitude of musical instruments, but my favorite is the guitar!
I love to sing.
I also write my own music and lyrics. Now if only I could get them on the radio!
I like feedback on my work, so if you have something to say, please say it!
I believe in angels!
I love the TV show 'Gunsmoke'. I also like the show 'Bonanza'... and some of its characters: Little Joe Cartwright (played by Michael Landon) and Griff King (Tim Matheson), mainly.

I love Star Wars and Luke Skywalker, but don't get me started on Mara Jade; I seriously don't like her and believe her creation by Timothy Zahn was a huge mistake.
Have fun here, guys!
