Update from the 2012 WWBN Election Newsroom...

Polls closed just minutes ago but with the expertise of the finest countermonkey's have projected a landslide win for former WWBN Mad Mad World Host Dunena Reid.

Exit poll results give a strong 80% majority result for the newcomer with some even choosing to vote for exotic animals then give a vote to Frump in what has to be his worst result ever.

You heard it here first, Dunena Reid is the new American Minister for Magic!

The Magical world today woke to a flurry of Werks and stories after last night's broadcast of Dunena Reid's Weird Weird World hinted, quite strongly that recently crowned Houglass Magazine's Person of the Year Dunena Reid, was set to enter the race for the 2012 American Magical Elections with no lesser sight then the Minister's position currently held by Ronald Frump.

Speaking to the Ministry this morning reporters where told that while some paperwork may have been received it was after the weekend cut-off and would not be looked at until the subsequent week at the earliest.. unless it had fallen on the desk of one F. Blake in which one just had to hope that it would be filed at all.

Considered a possible hoax a interview with Producer and year long associate of Mr Reid Benjamin Jefferson led to the following statement "The hell I know? Trust me man I'm usually the last to find out these things"

More on this story and other top breaking news including the protest by Interweb giants Woozle against Muggle proposed internet filtering laws, after this break.

Our Paris news desk reports that police in Paris have begun searching the Seine River for the body of a man who is believed to have jumped from one of the bridges in a possible suicide attempt. Reported by a party on one of the barges docked along the Seine, this raw footage shot by one of the party goers shows the man plunging into the river. No sign of his exit from the river has been found and they believe that he died on impact.

Yes ladies the roamers where true that none other then high flung socialite and darling of the European Ministry Fifi LaRoux has been sighted in Melbourne, Australia which has recently been named the worlds most livable city for a second time.

While none have stated what brought on the arrival of Miss LaRoux there's been no question that the world famous Hit Witch has made no secret of her visit with roamers of a behind closed doors meeting with the Minister for Magic himself before dining out at the exclusive Vue de Monde for drinks. Seemingly at home in the city Fifi underwent a tour of the Auror department before attending the midwinter launch of the Matacore 'Enchantment' line of fashion robes. Speaking exclusively to WWBN Fifi states that she was very pleased to be in Australia and would not commit to any return dates nor roamers that her visit had anything to do with attempts to influence the Australian Ministry to re-think it's ties to Ronald Frump's ministry.

Witch Weekly's exclusive Interview with the well known Hit Witch hits store shelves Monday.

It seems that exposing the Minister of Magic's secret love shack was not enough to keep the host of WWBN's Top Rating News and Current Affairs show Dunena's Mad Mad World set for long. Now with the reveal of Pottermore the controversial host has moved to point fingers at not only the American Minister for Magic but that of a number of major Magical Ministries around the world accusing them of taking bribes to allow unfettered access to the Magical World. Outrage from the claims have lead to a call for a full investigation into Mr Reid's accusations. All Eyes are now on the Various Ministers and how they will respond to the latest revelations from the Man himself, Dunena Reid of Mad Mad World.

After the break WWBN-UK Continues it's round the clock coverage of the 2011 Glastonbury Festival, taking place at Worthy Farm in the UK where our own Cherry Clinger is keeping abreast of the top stories and gossip at iconic music festival with interviews with big names and newcomers alike in the Wrock scene including a exclusive with DJ Noiseworks and former one time Weird Sister Nathan Wright.

"In Global News today many Muggles the world over logged on to the unveiling of 'Pottermore' last night, a new co-production between 'JK', Warner Brothers and Muggle Game Man..Man..Manufacturer Sony. Promising to give Muggles and Wizards alike a whole new experience many prominent figures in the magical world have come out damning what they see as yet another crass profit making exercise at the expense of the magical community.

One Hogwarts teacher has stated that since this 'Pottermore thing' started they have been inundated with well over one thousand owls from worried parents, former students and others wishing to know if it would mean Muggles would be allowed to study at Hogwarts or.. worse the school was to give up it's long held stance amongst the only schools to not have it's own interweb network.

While many in the Wizarding World are concerned Woozle today speaking to WWBN-Japan was quoted as "Not at all Worried" while reminding Wizards and Muggles alike that "whatever Pottermore promises to be there is no doubt that with Sony it will only be a matter of time before hackers get it".

In other news the Australian Ministry of Magic has moved to deny any connection to a self-declaired witch jailed for recklessly causing serious injury and dangerous driving. The Australian Minister for Magic was quoted as calling the woman a 'Bloody Idiot' while reminding that no matter what world one thinks they belong to, the laws of Australia still apply.

"WWBN Today officially announced that it has apologized to American Minister for Magic Ronald Frump for allegations made about him on flagship nightly talk show Dunena's Mad Mad World hosted on WWBN. While the Minister was brought into a furor over recent alligations surrounding his private life it was the revelation of his secret Tuscan Villa that has lead to red faces and claims to 'Sue WWBN for every knurd it has'. Amid the turmoil ratings for WWBN's radio talk show have skyrocketed making it more popular then 'Clives Charms Hour'. Speaking to the head of WWBN it was quoted that 'Whoever Dunena is they're on to a good thing, and might just be the Wizarding Worlds answer to the Muggle World's 'Julian Assange'"

Beginnings are a very wibbly time. Know then that it is the year 2011. The Known Universe is ruled by the Secret Pirate Council (so secret they have a full page column writeup in every major newsstand, the @topsecretpiratecouncil.woozle.com mailing address and their own @werk account). In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is that of Honey. The Honey extends life. The Honey is said to expand consciousness. The Honey is vital to all ship travel. The Brewers and the Shipmasters, who have used the honey found throughout the land to make over 4,000 varieties of Rum. The sweet brew, which is bought and sold though out the land and in it's putrefied form allows high-octane ship fuel to allow the bulk of heavy pirate ships such as the Good Ship Awesome, to fly over the lands.

The one who controls the honey, controls the world... but in a world without honey the order that once allowed the universe to function has broken, ships sit at dock as the price of fuel skyrockets on the day that the honey rivers went dry... the day, at honey's end.




Meanwhile far out at sea...

It was morning, the slight yaw and the pitch of the ship making the scene tilt slightly from side to side as Captain Marcus, Captain of the Good Ship Awesome and as far as he knew the last Captain to still sail the skies of The Great Ocean Road.. or well.. had been. He had that slight throbbing headache that came with a night of heavy drinking.. Instinctively Captain Marcus reached a hand out for that last trusty bottle of honeyrum.. but found a empty bottle of Ol' Jacks Imitation Honeyrum with 1% authentic scent of Peruvian nectar.. almost.. like the real thing. Slowly a idea was dawning in his mind.. a large, terrible, horrible realization that was coming to grip him.. worse then the knowledge of certain death.. worse then having your arm fall off and being peed on by your own crew (and sister).. a million times worse then anything he had come to face so far.. they had finally.. after many a night of pillaging and hording come to the very last drop of honeyrum.

Captain Marcus eyed the bottle with suspicion, refusing to fall into cliche's about missing rum he was instead heartened by the fact that while there might not ever be another bottle of rum, there was still one honey to which no cruel fortune (not even death..despite a rather good effort) could ever take from him. "Mornin' Hun" he mumbled to the love of his life, and the face who had launched a thousand wistful nights under the stars and over the seas. It was not night however, the sound of gulls overhead and the crew above reminders that while the honey might be gone, there was still a crew needing order and plans to be made. It was with a heavy heart that Captain Marcus dressed and adjusted his hat, taking extra care today of all days as he checked the last jar to find it half empty. Soon there would be no fuel to keep the Good Ship Awesome on it's mission for good times and high adventure.

"I think it's time" Captain Marcus said with a heavy heart as he waited for his wife to be ready. He'd been avoiding this day for a long time. Somehow he had the feeling that they probably would have noticed that the old ship wasn't quite up to it's usual splendor.. the fact that they needed the choke to start it on a cold foggy morning might well have been a clue. There was only two choices left for the crew of the Good Ship Awesome. To embark on a suicidal crazy mission that would no doubt get them killed, or to call together the council of pirates to see what could be made of the grave evil that had befouled the land. That said it wasn't the only choice, there was some that involved them becoming a crime fighting crew of superheros, or retiring to a life of peace in quiet living side by side in a small rural street where they might live only to bother each other with gossip, love stories and the occasional breakup..or well unlikely natural disaster but Captain Marcus knew there was only one way for a Pirate to go out.. and that was fighting.

Style helped too.. giving his wife a wink he shoved open the doors to their quarters before blinking in the sunlight "YARRR AVAST YE MATEYS! ALL HANDS ON DECK YE BUNCH OF SCURVY SEADOGS.. and eh.. sealadies...." Captain Marcus bellowed as he stepped on deck.. beads of sweat popping out along his neck at the surprising temperature.. someone must have bought the extra strong heatlamps this time round. "RIGHT YOU LOT.. HURRY ALONG AND DON'T MAKE IT TAKE ALLLL DAY" he added remembering that not everyone on the crew was all that versed in the proper pirate lingo. That was the downside of pirating today, back in the good ol' days you learnt to swear like a dirty sailor from the moment you where big enough to bite a ankle, but today the pirate schools where turning out kids who hardly knew how to shivver a timber even if it was looking right at them. Alas it wasn't easy being a modern major general pain in-the-butt to the world at large but he was endeavoring to do his best to thumb his nose at the powers that be for as long as was possible to survive against a chronic honey addiction in a world where not a single jar of the pure good stuff had been seen in almost a year.

The Pintmaster took her job seriously and made sure she polished off a few pints every night. Which was why she was snoring into the later hours of the morning and unaware of how serious the issues regarding the elixir of life, the nector of the pirate gods, the most important commodity to the pirate world -- and to her mum and dad which she preferred not thinking about because she never did like anything with ratings above PG 13 -- had become. Which is why, when her dad, aka Captain Marcus of the Good Ship Awesome, shouted out the orders, she woke up with a start and fell off her perch on the crow's nest, landing with a soft thump on top of Captain Marcus' hat, which he happened to be wearing at the time. Oops!

Of course, she knew something was wrong by the tone of his voice, which meant questions.

Where we going?

What we doing?

I'm hungry

Gotta gooooo... gotta go NOW

Are we there yet?


Kids, what can I say!

The Lady Rowan woke to the sounds of her husband's stirring and smiled as she stretched. It may have been imitation honey rum but that didn't make it any less fun the night before. "Mornin' Captain Amazing," she replied, smiling as she thought about the events of the night before which will not be shown in a flashback due to the already stretched to the limits PG 13 rating this has.

Rising from their DeepSlumber Number Adjustable Bed (just dial the number you need to hide pillaged loot under it for a proper restful sleep), she yawned as she went to the closet and pulled out one of her never ending supply of Captain's wife dresses, all designed exclusively by House of VerPillage of Great Ocean Road. Oddly, the dresses were never worn more than twice though usually less then that.......

.... until recently as the supply of honey began dwindling and the Captain and his wife did their best to conserve supplies.

Once ready, she took his hand and followed him up to the deck as he politely (as politely as pirate captains were wont to do) summoned the crew.

You know that lingering sense of anxiety? The kind that creeps up on you so slowly that at first you don't even know it's there? Master Nathy was feeling rather twitchy today, he'd been in the hold checking on the dwindling supplies.. his shopping list pinned to the wall of his bunk had grown long enough that Beanie had made a comfy bed out of the paper listing everything from toothpaste to Sargent Bilk's Finest Partypoppers. Ever since he'd washed up aboard the Good Ship Awesome, saved from the doomed to forever live on in 'Where yarr they now?' specials on channel 12 Master Nathy had grown twitchy of the day when they truly had run out of every Honey, Honey Flavoured and 'I Can't Believe it's Not Honey' Rum. Master Nathy knew the Captain Marcus well, they had raided together for more then twenty years since Master Nathy had first failed out of pirate school, he knew there was no telling what Captain Marcus would do when he found out that there was no honey today, nor tomorrow. Master Nathy wasn't your usual pirate. He tended to forget to Arr and would never swear even when his life depended upon it. Indeed the tall skinny pirate never did say much of anything beyond the world of 'Um' as if the cat had got his tongue.

Which.. in the case of Beanie the wonderkitten might well be true as a constant supply of grumpy muttering came from the shelf overhead . "None.. none..none..none.. how the MEEP! is a kitten supposed to get anything done if there's no MEEPing rum!" There was a thump, then a furry face appeared looking down at Master Nathy. Beanie was not a morning kitteh and without his morning cup of rum spiked coffee he was bound to be a bit..feral.
Master Nathy didn't know quite what to do, but then he was saved.. or more put in more peril as he heard the sound of the Capatain calling them to attention. "Um sorry Beanie but maybe Captain Marcus will know where there's some rum?" Nathan offered hoping to placate the kitten just enough to get him down without too much serious injury...

...two minutes later Master Nathy stumbled over a rope, clutching his arm which was bleeding in a rather worrysome way with Beanie muttering as he stalked along behind. It wasn't easy being the adopted father to a teenage tomcat but Nathan was trying to do his best as he took a glance around at the others, as far as he knew only he and the Captain and the Lady Rowan knew the true state of how dire the supplies situation was. They had run out of fuel three months ago and the last of the Vegemite had been lost at sea in a rather unrealist overdramatic storm that was just thrown in to keep the animation team busy. "Um here.. um Sorry.. eh Captain.." Master Nathy mumbled just hoping that this wasn't a meeting in order to talk about Beanpole's behavior. The last time they'd tried that..well it hadn't been pretty and the Voodoli and her associates had been called in to stitch, heal up the wounds and drag off the remains of those who'd been too close in that round of bloodshed.

Ship's Gunner Greta had not served on the Good Ship Awesome for very long but she was quick to learn the basic important stuff such as:

1.) The Captain placed the importance of honey above all else except Mrs. Captain
2.) If the honey was low, see Rule 1
3.) If the honey was needed, see Rule 1
4.) If the honey was gone.......... Make sure your last will and testament was updated because of rule 1.

The honey was very near gone, if not gone already depending on the events that may or may not have occurred during the night of which Gunner Greta was much happier not knowing about. However, what she did know was that some crew members had to have certain things to wake up in the morning and one of those crew members was rather cute and adorable... well once they had their morning rum spiked coffee. Which was why, Gunner Greta currently was taking the last drops of what HoneyGram's VII she had left and making said rum spiked coffee for one of her favorite pirates on the ship, usually found in the company of another pirate she was finding to be good company. Not much of a talker but pleasant to work around.

Taking the mug in hand, she made her way up onto the deck at the Captain's summons just as the pair she was looking for arrived. "Aye, captain," she responded before turning to Pirate Beanie and showing him the mug with his favorite beverage which she placed on a ledge for the Pirate kitty to drink. "Morning, Master Nathy," she greeted Pirate Beanie's partner.

He was nothing but a lowly Cabin Boy. Jared walked about, having finished the latest errand that they had assigned him - looking for more honey!. He had never though that this day would come. They were running out of the wonderful golden liquid that they valued far more than anything, and he feared the wrath of their Captain once he finds out. He wandered the ship, a bit cautious and anxious.

He looked about, and stumbled upon Pirate Greta conversing with Master Nathy. He wasn't really up for talking at the moment, and he decided to only speak when spoken to. He listened to their conversation with a blank expression, his many years on the ship having taught him that to listen is just as important as to be heard.

Ianto awoke to the sound of the captain all about get together Monkey decide even throgh he could see Ianto was awake to jump down on to Ianto's guts.
"OH you scurvy dog" Ianto cached at his mid section
Ianto really hated monkey some days, monkey was into one true friend or so Ianto like to believe. The truth was monkey made more trouble for Ianto than Ianto's innate clumsiness did on this ship but Ianto for some reason could not really bring himself to get rid of the annoying monkey.
Ianto stumbled up out of hammock in the bowels of the ship.
Ianto hated the meetings he allways ended up cleaning decks afterwards as the no good crew had scuffed the deck .
"monkey come on captain calling" Ianto called the monkey and put his arm out form monkey to climb up on to his shoulder.
Ianto wonder if this was it the end of his sky fairing days the had been no honey for many months and Ianto had no idea how they had keep flying when so many had not and are moored in dock all about the place.
"I hope we have found some honey" Ianto told monkey as he climbed up on to his shoulder and they made there way up on the deck to find out what the captain wanted today.

Dire as the situation might be there was nothing like having the love of your life, and most wonderful women sailing the seven-to-eleven seas to make a man feel good of a morning. "Not half as amazing as ye melove.." he retorted before the pair of them made their way up on the deck and without the required sound effect the Captain suddenly found his hat a rather lot heavier. "Hello Sweetie.." he said going slightly crosseyed as he tried to look at the top of his hat which had been knocked crooked by the addition of a certain Pintmaster/Never to be forgotten Firelizard. Of course he knew it was only a matter of time before the questions started, and the downside of having a telepathic connection with a inquisitive firelizard was they didn't come with any sort of off switch.. not even a volume control!

This called for desperate measures! "Boatswain.. packet of Bertie Beetles Stat!" he called out as his rather eh.. tall and bleeding Boatswain came into view followed by what Captain Marcus was assured was the least friendly kitten in the entire universe. "Anyone seen the first mate?.. No?" Captain Marcus sighed.. he really didn't want to know where the first mate had got to but he had a feeling it was going to be one hell of a story. "Right well.." Captain Marcus had a bit of a sinking feeling about all this as he gaze landed on each of his crew in turn. He was the Captain, to be respected and demand loyalty but there was no doubt that they where on the edge and no amount of heroic speeches where going to get them out of it...or at least without a damn good try! "So a few of ye might have come to notice that things aint' quite shipshape.. fact of the matter is there hasn't been sighted a single drop of honey since near on this time last year.. now I've been ye Captain for well.. as long as I remember and probably a few longer so listenup.."

Captain Marcus tried his best to ignore his own stomach grumbling, without honey breakfast had lost it's meaning.. and it certainly wasn't helped by the lack of crewmen. Hell he knew what Sky Captain Mel would say to see his ship running on what was more a single left shinbone vs a skeleton crew but it was tough to make a honestly-dishonest living as a pirate when there was none ships to pillage, loot and plunder. "Boatswain how many bottles of rum is left on the wall?" The Captain asked in grim certainty that there certainly wasn't enough to last even one round of 99 bottles of rum on the wall. "So here's the low of it.. either we embark on a brave, yet utterly stupid quest to find the lost ark of the covenant and take it back from the invading...yet cute alien menace.. wait.. sorry wrong script.. that's Steven Spielberg's next film.. or well we eh.. mumblemumble..call the MI6 to get a meeting of the Captain's together to eh.. plan and eh..whatnot..to youknow save us all".

It may have seemed stupid to others but Captain Marcus wasn't all that trilled to the idea of a meeting of Captain's.. maybe it was the fact that he'd at some point in his career probably double crossed half of them and owed money to the rest but much as the fact that said meetings usually meant a trip to the pub well.. he wasn't about to risk the lives of all of them because he had a allergy to being stabbed in the back by a angry former shipmate. Though of course Sky Captain Mel would have probably calmed down by now.. yeah.. probably. Captain Marcus noticeably twitched.. okay so that would require a especially delicate touch. "So what say you all? Stupid mission to some place I have no idea of or .. the pub?" Yeah.. as if that was even a option was it? He'd never known a pirate in their right mind..and even more not in their right minds to turn down a trip to the pub.

It was a good thing Lady Macbeth was an only familiar or there would also have been the dreaded "he's touching me/make him stop/she started it's" added in. However, Captain Marcus/Daddy knew what would distract her from the typical travel questions and sure enough, just hearing him ask the boatswain for the treasured package, stopped the litany of questions, at least for now.

Her head snapped to attention as she looked toward the Boatswain and she cried out, forgetting only Captain Marcus and Lady Rowan would hear it out of the humans in the crew,

Covered all in chocolate,
Tastes good and rare.
Cake's okay
But I'll take that right there
Hit me with your Bertie Beetles
Come on and hit me with your Bertie Beetles

The Lady Rowan blushed at her husband's words as she followed him onto the deck and waited for the rest of the crew to assemble, grinning at the questions Lady Macbeth was inundating Captain Marcus with until he managed to distract her with requesting a supply of Bertie Botts.

However, once all but the First Mate had arrived and he began explaining the depth of the problem, the Lady Rowan became rather serious herself, not having realized exactly how bad it had become. So it was when the choice was offered, she voted quickly.

"We must be findin' honey honey
Sails up, turn around find that honey
Hey we gotta meet at the pub now
But gotta find honey for the ship to burn now

And feel all right, yeah I feel all right

The Pirate's Council must work together so she voted for heading to the pub to begin to find the honey.

It was a big responsibility being the First Mate and all. You had to like boss people around and everything when the captain was otherwise indisposed. Which was kinda often honestly whenever his Lady Rowan was around. Chloe thought it was kinda sweet. Sometimes. When she had to stop thinking about it lest her imagination scar her for life, ruining any chance to ever adventure with her brother again.

Anyway, as First Mate, Chloe had a list of her own responsibilities. But right now, the biggest one was about the Honey. Or lack of it. When she wasn't immaturely thinking that the shortage would probably slow down the activities that Captain Marcus and Lady Rowan got up to... she was worried sick. What would happen without honey? The ship couldn't fly without it. They'd be stranded or get killed falling back to earth. Or worse... they'd have to stop being Pirates!! After all, you couldn't be a Pirate without a ship.

Such worrying thoughts made a young, passionate First Mate try perhaps to do impulsive things to solve the problem. Like making your own honey. That couldn't be that hard, right? What was it made from anyway? Bees. Not just any bees but special bees. Ones that lived in the deep wilderness and were basically giant. After all, no tiny bees could make enough honey to flow down the rivers and Honeycomb Falls. So Chloe would just have to find the bees, maybe get one to be a pet and have their own personal honey maker. Or maybe if they could talk, they could teach her how to make honey!

Yes, a brilliant plan that she'd opted for the previous night. But bees could not talk. Giant bees weren't very friendly either. So now it was the next day and poor Chloe was sore all over. Giant stingers hurt! At least she wasn't allergic. But it made moving difficult. At least until she felt better.

This was the reason she still remained in her room even after Captain Marcus had called for the entire crew to meet. Darn it! Whimpering and then cursing, the First Mate forced herself to finish putting on some proper clothing. Then finally, she headed out to the deck.

"Ow... blam it. Ow... blam it. Ow... blam it. Ow... blam it." Okay... what did she miss?

Famous Last Words : Um..
Pet/Familar : BeanpoleKitteh
Master Nathy wasn't used to being addressed first thing in the morning and turned a confused look towards the Captain "Eh.. sorryCaptain but we um.. don't.. have any Bertie Beetles?" Nathy said unaware of the song being sung in said Captain's head by the crews Pintmaster. Which was quite fortunate as there was nothing like a small singing Firelizard to make a Pirate nervious about delivering bad news. Especially seeing that he didn't want to end up on the wrong side of the "fire"lizard. After all he was still bleeding from his mistake in trying to pick up Beanie thismorning.

Beanie however was much more single minded, stalking after his master his nose picked up the faint hint of coffee and he was off like a shot.. "RAWR!" leaping up onto the ledge where the precious brew waited. Beanie might have been a walking, talking kitteh but some instincts where stronger then all as he shoved himself face first in the mug of coffee, purring as he licked at the hot coffee that had been one of his few vices picked up from his time amongst the crew of the HMS Frosted Cupcake.

The whole display of ill manners was rather embarrassing for Master Nathy, especially with a Lady present. or well Lady Pirate in the case of Pirate Greta. "Um.. morning.." Master Nathy said looking a bit shocked as he was whenever his morning was interrupted by someone of the opposite sex actually wanting to talk to him. After all he was hardly a catch, why he didn't even own his own ship nor much at all beyond a guitar an original pressed squid guts recordings of Cthulhu's Garden by The Bootymen from before they got famous.

Unfortunately (or probably fortunately in Master Nathy's case) before he had a chance to think up a topic of conversation Captain Marcus was calling them to attention, Master Nathy had been though this all countless times and just stood and watched with a vaguely concerned expression at the news before looking aghast at the question. Should he lie or tell the truth? Would everyone turn on him? Nathan wiped a bit of sweat from his forehead before admitting "Eh.. none Captain Marcus.. that is eh.. there is no more bottles sitting on any walls.. or in the hold or anywhere on the ship at all...well except empty ones and the ones used for.." Master Nathy stopped as the Captain interrupted him. While he might not have been a good pirate at least Master Nathy did his best at his job, even if it tended to lead him into some kind of peril or another to the point where even a mention of a pub trip was bound to lead to some kind of dramatics no doubt.

Even if only of the Beanie kind as Beanpole landed on the deck after the Lady Rowan's stanza with a crash of broken ceramics.. "NO PUB! BEANIE NO WANT TO GO TO NO STINKING PUB!" the kitten cried out as he ran over to glare at the Captain. Because while Beanie did love his rum a trip to the pub was certainly going to lead to going to The Golden Honeypot Pub where he had a certain bit of unfinished business. Sulking he wouldn't be budged even with Nathan looking apologetic for him "Um.. sorry Captain.. but I guess we vote for the eh.. thing with Aliens?" After all Aliens where a ever constant nameless threat.. whereas Beanpole's teeth and claws where well honed instruments of destruction very much poised to not take no for a answer.

Gunner Greta smiled at Master Nathy and Pirate Beanie as they arrived on deck and Pirate Beanie made a bee (oops) line for the rum spiked coffee she had brought up for the pirate kitty as she heard Master Nathy deliver what could only be bad news to their Captain since everyone knew that Pintmaster Lady Macbeth's penchant for Bertie's Beetles was equaled only by Pirate Beanie's penchant for rum spiked coffee, of which the pirate kitty was now drinking his last.

She felt a bit of color tinge her cheeks at the Boatswain's reply to her greeting and blamed it on the warmth of the sun. Although, after the First Mate arrived on deck, she winced at the site of the pain the poor Lady Chloe seemed to be in. However, that was overwhelmed by the report from Master Nathy that everyone knew would be said but dreaded hearing anyway, No.More.Honey.

Now while there were some benefits from the fact they would be out of honey, such as the Captain taking more of an interest in captaining his ship, remaining on deck more often and not being locked away with the Lady Rowan; there were more horrid and bad effects to the loss of honey.

No fuel.

No honey rum

Captain spending more time on deck captaining the ship in a not so jovial mood because there was no honey.

And it was time to vote with the first vote being for the Pub and then Master Nathy casting two votes for the aliens. Gunner Greta would have sided with Master Nathy had she not read her entire script and realized the aliens were not to be discovered until Act II Scene 2.5. So it was, she cast her vote,

[1st Verse]
You told us there's no honey to be found here
Don't know where it went it just did disappear
The honey must be found and that fact is really clear
So pub it, just pub it

[2nd Verse]
We better sail, better go there while we can
Don't wanna go without honey if we can
Uhh...pirates may be tough, but some things we can't stand
So pub it, to find where honey can be had

[Chorus]
Just pub it, pub it
No One Wants To Be Defeated
Showin' to find honey and give it a fight and
It doesn't matter if we go left or go right
Just pub it, pub it
Just pub it, pub it
Just pub it, pub it
Just pub it, pub it
Uhh...

Leaving the vote at two for the pub and two for the aliens

Jared watched everything unfold, staying quiet and in his place, lest he draw unwanted attention on himself. Unlike the others, who were quite into the moment, he was a little more subdued. He blamed it, of course, on the lack of honey, and he dallied with the options before raising his hand slightly and meekly stating his vote.

"A trip to the pub sounds about right." He said, still overwhelmed by everyone's energy despite having been with them for a while already. Five years, to be exact. He knew that with his vote, he had made it uneven, giving pub three; and aliens two. He looked about and wondered where this would lead them.

Would they find more honey...?!

Ianto like so many on the good ship awesome he knew there was no honey or rum as per the call from the guy that counts them and well he had not had a drink in days which count toward his bad morning mood Ianto tried to focus on what the captian was aging and what the rest of the crew had to say But Ianto was the lowest man here and was sure his point of view was of no interest in his opinion but since it was vote Ianto had to decide what he wanted to do aliens or pub, aliens or pub
May be the pub will have rum mmm rum need rum
" I know no one cares but I say pub" Ianto said in his most well spoken voice knowing that he would get his but kicked by the captain as alway.
It was at this time his monkey ran from his arm and on to the deck and then on to the mast to get a good view of Ianto as the captain killed him for specking as to a course when it was his job to just clean the deck and well clean the... No matter he had spoken time to die

Facepalming at the questions in his head Captain Marcus glanced at his wife with the 'you're hearing this too right?' look in the hope that she might find a better way to calm the inquisitive firelizard now that plan A. had been ruined. Unfortunately the smile on her face was hardly reassuring and so Captain Marcus nodded at his Boatswains answer "Right..right.. um.." this required a good beard scratch in thought. No Rum, No Honey, No Bertie Beetles... things where worse then he thought! So it was time, Captain Marcus blinked a bit as his beloved wife answered in song, wondering as she did if someone hadn't mixed up the script with the one for the stage adaption. It was enough to make him take a deep breath as Beanie shouted out.. the last thing they needed was a four minute vocal solo by a cat. Nobody would pay for a bunch of singing allycats after all. "Ye'll get ye vote" Captain Marcus just said with a grumble at the ill tempered kitten before looking utterly confused as his boatswain voted for certain death..and aliens. "Yer sure?" The Captain shrugged and after Pirate Greta's singing summed up the votes so far with a nod "Alrighty then.. that's two against and two for.."

Then a hand popped into view, Captain Marcus blinked, oh yeah it was that Jared lad, smart kid who'd taken over the Cabin Boy duties after the previous Cabin Boy had disappeared in weasily circumstances two years ago to never be seen again. Smart enough to keep his head down anyway. "Good lad.." Captain Marcus smirked, a trip to the pub and adventure would make a pirate out of him no doubt about it. That put the decision firmly on the side of the pub, and even without the last vote...which was promptly ignored as the First Mate appeared on deck.. ohdear! Captain Marcus knew visiting the island of killer bee's wasn't his finest idea but nobody had been hurt.. or at least he'd thought they hadn't. "Right.. Pub it is then!.. HOIST THE MAIN SAILS.. GUNNER SEE TO THE PIE OVENS..FIRST MATE TO THE HELM.. AND SOMEBODY FIND THE PARROTPHONE.." Aside he added to his wife "Best get Doctor Ethan to meet us at the pub as well.." he added with concern over his sister. Those stinger marks didn't look friendly at all. "Anyone seen the goat?" Considering Bertrand the goat had previously been a most Evil Pirate he'd always been a bit weary of leaving it out of his sight for too long.

Yes this was turning out to be one disorganized adventure as Captain Marcus scratched his head trying to remember where he put the note with the number for the Secret Pirate Council.. that was the problem with secrets.. they tended to be well secretive and unimportant when compared to the complete unabridged lyrics to 'She's a Sea Shanty Girl'. In the meantime though they had a lot of ocean to cover and scarcely enough fuel to make it. "C'mon First Mate.. man you sure gave them Bee's a hell of a time eh?" he said to his sister as he flopped into the captaining chair and turned the wheel to point them towards land. Of course a watchful eye would have noticed the fuel gauge hoverring just over the empty mark. Captain Marcus tapped it a couple of times but it refused to budge. But they had no choice did they? So Captain Marcus pulled the lever to push the engines into fast-foward speed... which worked right up until the fuel ran out.

"Bugger.." was all the Captain had to say as the ship slowed to a stop.

Now how where they going to get to the pub?

Lady Macbeth had not realized she was holding her breath as the vote was taken after she cast hers but she was until she heard Captain Daddy announce that the trip to the Pub had won. After all, that meant not only would there be stores to restock the ship but she would get to see Auntie Cara, owner of the Golden Honeypot Pub and her buddy, Ebby, the only koala bartender in all of piratedom.

The little fire lizard pintmaster was a happy girl until the ship ground to a halt when it ran out of fuel.

Nooooooooooooooooooooo!

As the vote was taken, Lady Rowan waited for everyone to make their choice though she did notice that Pirate Beanie seemed 'slightly hesitant' about going to the pub. But it did not matter as the vote came to the choice of pub and so everyone went about their respective duties to set a course for Great Ocean Road as the Lady Rowan stood at the prow, arms outstretched as if in flight... Right up till the ship ground to a halt when they ran out of fuel. As her beloved Captain Marcus expressed his thoughts on the matter, she offered a solution. "We must call...

Speedy Tweety has a real fast ship
She'll come get you if your wings are clipped
We're out of fuel and it's crying shame
& till we find out the one to blame!
Hey hey, tho it's not free
Speedy Tweety, will sail the sea

We can't do my navigation and we can't fly straight
It ran outta fuel this morning, 'bout a half past eight.
This not having honey is not cool.
But until we find the massive honey pool
Hey hey, tho it's not free
Speedy Tweety, will sail the sea
She can pick us up and take us to Great Ocean Road
Maybe someone there will have honey to unload.

The ship's not movin' with its honey gone
and I don't feature we'll get any soon
Since we need to get to the pub
and we really don't own a yellow sub,
Hey hey, tho it's not free
Speedy Tweety, will sail the sea

The ship's not movin' with its honey gone
and I don't feature we'll get any soon
Since we need to get to the pub
and we really don't own a yellow sub,
Hey hey, tho it's not free
Speedy Tweety, will sail the sea
Hey hey, tho it's not free
Speedy Tweety, will sail the sea
Hey hey, tho it's not free
Speedy Tweety, will sail the sea

Speedy Tweety [8x, spoken]

It wasn't the captain's fault that she'd gotten stung. If First Mate Chloe had any idea that her brother's thoughts were leaning that way, she'd have quickly corrected him. After all, it had been Chloe who'd had the bright idea to approach the bees. Bees that were not antisocial because of shyness but because they simply hated people. And everything else. They were like... like Daleks! Trying to kill everything that wasn't a killer bee.

She'd just had such optimistic day dreams about toting along a giant killer bee posse behind her to the ship. They were huge so they could like fly beside the ship if they couldn't fit. Or if they didn't want to leave their home, she'd be able to lug along so may huge honeycombs. But she'd never even gotten close. Shame.

Achey, the girl stood around trying to catch up on events. They were going to the Pub? Why were they going to the pub? Did it have anything to do with honey? She hoped so. They couldn't afford to do much without the stuff.

There wasn't much time to give it more thought because the Captain was on the move, barking orders. Chloe looked up to where the helm was and groaned a little. It suddenly seemed like a lot more effort now. Sighing, she set off to move as fast as her pain would allow. As she was thinking about needing leverage, she suddenly thought about Bertrand. He'd still been asleep and she hadn't wanted to wake him. Now on the other hand...

"OI!! BERTRAND!!! First mate shouted at the top of her lungs... She waited a moment and then smiled as the goat clomped over to her side. After a friendly greeting where he nuzzled her hand, Chloe gingerly took his fur and pretty much let him drag her along. Once she reached the helm, she pouted as Marcus commented on her bee stings. "You mean, they gave me one..." Chloe muttered, pouting.

But all in all, it was still a good day. Until the shipped suddenly stopped in its tracks. Suffice it to say, the Captain's words were quite tame compared to what her mind was shouting right now.

Nathan felt rather guilty for not siding on that of his friends, a glance down at Beanie however meant that he nodded that yes, he was sure that he wanted to sail towards their certain death rather then have Beanie blame him for whaver it was that had got the kitten so upset in the first place. Nathan sighed, talking kitteh's seemed to be just as hard to understand as people, and at least most people where less prone to bite and scratch when he got it wrong. It seemed however that the vote was against them, Nathan looking a bit embarrised as Greta started singing however Beanie just glared at her before doing turning his back and skulking away to hide in the bowels of the ship to sulk. "Um sorry.. really don't um know what's gotten in to him.." Master Nathy apologised to Greta with a sigh. He'd taken the cancellation of the old series hard and had been prone to sulking that he now had to compete against a goat, monkey and firedragon for the kids vote.

Speaking of goats Master Nathy looked dismayed as the First Mate appeared, she didn't look good and he just had to hope the Captain wasn't going to blame one of them for not keeping a eye on her. Nathan tended to be in the mental state that if anything went wrong, no matter how far removed it was there would probably be a way that it could all lead back to be blamed on him. It didn't help that his one overall job was to ensure that the Good Ship Awesome lived up to it's name. Good Ship maybe but Awesome was debatable when the engines where near dry, the supplies just about exharsted and the honey.. gone. With a twitch Master Nathy listened as Captain Marcus barked out the orders, sails where to be hoisted, ovens to be cooking and items to be found. Nathan's first order of binsuess however was something he was not looking foward to at all as he went below deck.. bright eyes in the darness from where Beanie was watching him. Slowly he managed to manuver a jar down with him though the long passageway to where the large copper boiler waited. Holding his nose Master Nathy poured the last of the fuel into the boiler, the meter barely raising even a degree as steam and the whine of stuff at work deep within the bowels of the ship signaled that Captain Marcus had put things into gear. This wasn't good!

Hurrying his way up above decks Master Nathy was stopped by the sight of the First Mate being dragged along by Bertrand the goat. Oddly enough that wasn't the strangest thing he'd seen in his times but it was enough to distract him from his mission.. as was Beanie jumping down from the roof with a rather bright look upon his face. "Yuck Beanie.. where have you been?" Nathan asked, the kitten was filthy with his fur all mattered with grease.
"None of your bizzo" the Kitten just replied with a huff before jumping down to go find somewhere private to clean up. Concerned Master Nathy didn't think anything more of it as he checked that the rigging was rung correctly and wondered more then a few times as to if he should see how the Gunner was doing with her duties. But of course she'd probably think him a bother and so Master Nathy remained quiet until there was a sudden shudder that went though the ship.. the kind usually followed by one overdramatic person in the cast shouting that they where all going to die! Wide eyed Nathan looked around, then got running as suspicion told him that only one thing could cause the ship to stop that suddenly.. the pressure building up in the engine now that the fuel had been exhausted was enough to blow the entire ship sky high! There was nothing for it but to grab his guitar and head below and defuse it with some good old Rock and Roll action before the crew where put at risk by a 'minor' thermonuclear explosion.

Ianto was not to worried that his vote did not count as Monkey hung from the rigging above him. Ianto really hated all the dancing and singing that happened on this ship all the damn time. It really was not his thing so most of the time, he just sank in to the background and prayed it would end soon. "Monkey, I be going below now, are thy coming?" Ianto asked his pet. Ianto did not get a reply as it was at that moment the ship STOPPED dead. "Out of gas," ianto mumbled. Ianto wondered why, unlike so many other ships, they had not moored at one of the many place along the Great Ocean Road. Now they were stuck in the middle of nowhere with no honey or rum and there were few, if any ships, going about the sky now as most had no honey or so little that leaving there moorings was just stupid.

MMMM wonder how long it takes a man to starve to death

Ianto decided to be brave and ask, "so what now, Captain?" Ianto hoped there was no life boating required as he hated small boats. Monkey jumped behind an empty crate, knowing that Ianto uselly got a serve when he asked some question of the captain .

Running a ship was a lot harder then most people realised. Captain Marcus had been Captaining for just about as long as he remembered, he'd been though the good and bad and back again but it had been many a year since they'd found themselves so hard up to not even be able to make it to land. As each went to their duties Captain Marcus jumped and covered his ears at his First Mates yelling, before bursting out laughing at his sister's great idea for transportation. It got him thinking that maybe if they where able to capture a school of aquatic goats they might just not be in such a dire situation at all. But of course the evidence to support such creatures where hearsay at best. Kicking his feet up Captain Marcus felt something with the end of his toe.. moving to examine he pulled out the Parrotphone which had been stuck to the helm with some suspicious green glowing slime. "Aha.. there you are!" Captain Marcus said before tossing it over his shoulder and turning his attention towards watching the Lady Rowan standing at the front of the ship looking beautiful as only she was allowed.

All seemed well for the moment, laughing a little as his First Mate sooked about the stings Captain Marcus shook his head "Dontcha worry.. soon as we get the fuel we'll go right back there and give them bee's a seeing to they won't be forgetting for a long time eh?" yes, because while things looked dour Captain Marcus was forever a optimist as only one who had a open-ended contract to see though to the next Pirates of WWBN could. However even he had to curse when the ship stopped in it's tracks.. Captain Marcus looked to his Boatswain only to find him heading below deck with a serious expression.. humm well he was sure there was nothing to worry about as a few minutes later he emerged covered in soot. It was of course not much of a big leap that his wife would present the solution. "You mean that Speedy Tweety from the late night ads on WWBN-Channel 4?" Captain Marcus asked, the sponsors pleased he went on to shrug "I guess it's worth a try" he said handing his misses the phone since it was outside of his expertise.. he only knew how to make prank calls.. not real ones.

With a voice popping up from behind him Captain Marcus quickly reached to grab a knife to toss at the Bilge Rat.. but even those had run out and so the age old game of grievously harming the least popular member of the crew was limited by their non-existent supplies. He sighed, Ianto would live another day. "Well if I recall right.. I'm supposed to do this!" With that Captain Marcus threw himself sideways onto the deck, cheek pressed against the wood he thought for a moment as the camera showed a artistic shot of peoples feet and the ship stretched out around him. "Then we have a bunch of fashbacks of how you guys got on the crew with sad music and then we get rescued.." he explained. However instead of the soft piano music it was more rather.. bouncy. In fact one would almost say that somewhere folks where most certainly jumping.

Lady Rowan had stepped aside as the Boatswain and Bilge Rat had things to ask the Captain and well, the First Mate Chloe sure had need of his attention more than anything at the moment as she suffered through recovery from her heroic attempts at obtaining honey for the Good Ship Awesome. Gunner Greta had gone off to assure they had enough ammunition for the weapons and apparently, to remove quite a bit of tar and grime from one Pirate Beanie using a bit of cat bathing magic spells and, even with the aid of magic, some industrial strength, elbow length protective gloves.

At the Captain's recognition of the Speedy Tweety service, Lady Rowan nodded. "Yes, that's the one. Cheapest fares in the entire Great Ocean Road, local taxes and tariffs apply, group rates available, no service after Sunset on Sundays due to local ordinances. Limited time buy two get one free passage offer cannot be combined with any other discounts." Taking the parrotphone he tossed to her, Lady Rowan checked for coverage and smiled to see they had good service where they were stranded. It was moments like this that she was glad they had taken out the contract with Beerizon (can you call them now) rather than the other choices of Droptus (please send payment before bills arrive) or even DDT with their exclusive AyePhone 4R's coverage. Within moments. she had Speedy Tweety service on the phone and the shuttle on its way scheduled to arrive just as the flashbacks ended.

Thinking back to begin the first of several previously moments, Lady Rowan remembered that day when she and her familiar were

Sittin' in the mornin' sun
Sure she'd be sittin' when the evenin' come
Watching the ships roll in
And then she'd watch 'em roll away again, yeah

Sitting on the dock of the bay,
Watching the tide roll away
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Wantin' a ride

She left her home in Scotland
Headed for the 'Melbourne bay
'Cause She had nothing to live for
And look like nothin's gonna come her way

Sitting on the dock of the bay,
Watching the tide roll away
Sitting on the dock of the bay
Wantin' a ride

Looked like a pirate ship a comin'
Everything made that claim
It was Marcus and the Good Ship Awesome
So she guessed she'd sail with them yes

Sailed with the cross & bones
And this honey need won't leave here alone
It's two thousand miles she's roamed
And she's made this ship her home

Sitting in the Captain's quarters,
Just him and her and the honey
Sitting in the Captain's quarters,
Havin' a good time......

If Boatswain Nathy could have heard Lady Macbeth, he'd have realized he was quite right in judging the severity of the moment.

We're allll gonna dieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

She whimpered and then relaxed when her mum and dad reminded each other about Speedy Tweety. Okay, well they weren't going to die but they'd be stuck there for a bit. With that, she waited for her mum to make the call and have her flashback moment before adding her own to the mix.

Wherever we go, whatever we do,
we're gonna go through it together.
We may not go far, but sure as a star,
wherever we are, it's together.

Wherever Mum go I know he goes.
Wherever he goes I know she goes.
Just mum and dad and me to go
a sailin', pirates, together!

Through thick and through thin,
all out or all in.
And whether it's honey rum, glace or comb.
With you for me and me for you,
we'll pirate through whatever we do.
Together, wherever we go.

Chloe laughed a bit even though she was beyond skeptical at her brother Captain's words. She was pretty sure in the end, it would just end up badly. But the thought counted, it did. Or maybe her judgement was just clouded by the pain and venom from all those bee stings. Wondering about the giant bees, she suddenly hoped she didn't get like seriously poisoned and end up keeling over. And then Chloe worried that now she had just jinxed herself.

Okay stop thinking about it. Stop thinking. Now. If she forgot about it, the jinxing was canceled, right? Right.

There wasn't much left to say now as they all focused on the main issue at hand. Getting this ship moving again. She didn't have any particular suggestions to add so it was all about listening to everyone else. Speedy Tweety? Chloe had a vague memory of that... But her mood was all irritated again when it became apparent it was flashback time.

Ugh, she hated flashback time. Focusing on the past was boring. She could never find a proper song to go with hers. Le sigh. But what else could she do? So Chloe just sighed again then tilted her head up so that her mind could wander. Oi, their rescue better get here soon.
