Seb probably should've led with that one.

Seb 'n Nat come from opposite halves of the discretion spectrum.

Well said!

I get the impression that Nate is okay with himself, but still must play it cool in his hometown.

Don't know how the pirates in this world view it, but I'm betting the last person on the ship you'd want to discuss it with would be Finlay.

@Kevin_Redcrow Yeah, you're spot on with that! Attitudes in his home town, while not historically accurate bad, are still small rural British town bad. Coming out isn't really something people even contemplate. Nate's gotten to a point where he's long done with feeling ashamed about it though.

Something I found pretty interesting was that pirates were actually pretty tolerant of homosexuality, so I wanted to include that in my world. Even Finn isn't really homophobic, though it wouldn't help anything if he found out, that's for sure.

Seems that a lot of "activity" has been happening on ships since long-distance sailing begin.

As pirate crews tended to consist of society's outlaws and pariahs, I'll bet eyes and ears were closed to any Friggin' In the Briggin'.

@jawbone Yep XD It's a fun dynamic to mess with.

Jeebus. Making it look like complicated science when just like... hug him or kiss him (if he is up to it) or whatever, lmao.
But I do not think Nathan is good at playing dumb, haha.

Yeah, you're probably right! I think there's some element of "Wait what is this actually happening?" going on.

Lol it's interesting you said that first part though... XD
