I have now rewritten this story as an original piece - NO I'M NOT PUBLISHING IT - don't be ridiculous. However, I am now posting it on Wattpad :D I've been meaning to rewrite this for a while, and when I discovered that site I figured it was the perfect time to sort this out and give it a go at an original piece. Most of the story will be the same - I'm still quite in love with it. But if you'd like to read this, just head over to my wattpad site - it's free! www . / user / missrebecca12 - just remove the spaces :)
I'm leaving the first chapter up, as that's largely unchanged, so anyone new can see if they fancy reading it on wattpad or not :).
This was originally a one-shot I wrote in 30 minutes for the Twi Network Iron Pen challenge.
Before we begin, I would very much like to thank everyone who has helped me write this, as I'm so very proud of it. Everyone from Emergency Team Beta, who I've wrote with. VampGirl, for being my pre-reader and keeping me going. And Ninmesarra, my amazing beta who I found through the Sparkly Red Pen.
Keelhauled: verb (used with object)
1. Nautical . to haul (an offender) under the bottom of a ship and up on the other side as a punishment.
2. to rebuke severely.
Summary: A story of love sprung from hate; of resentment, revenge and renegades. Abandon all hope ye who enter, for here there be pirates. Winner of the Twi Network Iron Pen.
