Character(s) to give rum to: The Powder Monkeys! (Last one)
Author and notes: An answer to Sword challenge. My apologees to Mr. Pullings if I ruined his character. This is the way I think he came off in the movie, and he hasn’t had much of a role in the books yet.

Tom Pullings worshipped his captain. It was, of course, no secret, nor would he dream of denying it. From the time he was a snivelling midshipman, he had openly imitated Lucky Jack’s every action, from his handling of his officers and crew to the way he held his sword.

He knew that Aubery, in turn, copied his own hero, but it was not Lord Nelson that Tom looked to.

He stood on the poop deck of the Acheron, watching the Surprise sink from sight. He had only a memory to emulate now, but he swore he would do it proud.

Wonderful, actually. Just wonderful. I know this is WEEKS old, but I'm just going back and reading them all. Pullings is a beloved character of mine, and I think this portrays him SO well. Capital, capital!
