(Setting the scene for) A Pirate Drabble!

I was inspired by this post last night, and woke up this morning with a drabble that demanded to be written and posted RIGHT NOW. So I set up the scene that could lead into t3h_toby_chan's sketches. I posted it on that thread, but frankly, I'm hoping I'll get more feedback posting it as a stand-alone entry.

This is unbeta'd. Like most fanfic I write, it's something of an AU--Roy has a bad knee and an eyepatch, but Fuhrer Bradley is very much alive. Maes Hughes is NOT dead. Alphonse Elric's soul is back in the body it was born in, but Edward is neither dead nor tossed into a depressing alchemy-less world. Roy Mustang's mother is mentioned, and if I write another drabble to follow this one, (I make no promises on that) I might even introduce her as a character. (I have my own theory on who she is and the story of her life, which I'm inordinately proud of and therefore allude to whenever it doesn't get in the way of the story.)
