Faeree of Cerulean

Back in the heyday of YPP, the wife of my crew's captain and myself plotted to prank said captain on April Fools day. Now this captain always wore hats in game. He was never without a hat. For some reason, maybe due to personality ? said captain always thought I was blonde in RL. When a bunch of folks from said crew did a RL meetup him seeing me as a brunette in person really threw him. Due to said 'I can't believe she's not blonde?!' comments his wife and I decided to surprise him with a makeover in game. I went from a brunette in game to a platinum blonde (which its been to this day) and he got a lovely new bleached blonde hair color. Unfortunately for us, he didn't notice his hair. Did I mention his love of hats? We had to finally had to set up a portrait in which we had no hats for him to notice :) I went from 'bad faeree' with the dark hair to 'good faeree' on that day lol.

Hello, I like this contest. I've spoken to Doggbreath and have decided to create a prize for doubloon ocean entrants as well! If a doubloon ocean entrant decides to enter, wins and decides they'd rather not have the sub ocean prize, I will give them 90 doubloons.

So normally I'm not much for April Fools. But this one year I couldn't help myself. Have you ever noticed how wrapped gifts can be wrapped?
One of my friends really really really wanted a tan monkey, so on April Fools I gave her a wrapped Gift Box with the note *something you've always wished for*. She ended up having to open a wrapped gift box... like.. 25-50 times? (Don't really remember), only to see a trinket at the end that said *Aprils Fools!*

On April the 2nd I gave her a tan monkey

This were back in the day on Midnight, when I were a young pirate and up for divilment!

I would stand patiently on the dock at Alpha and wait for greenies to approach and chat. They would ask the obvious questions. I waited for them to ask about how to get a monkey. I told them they needed to find the mystical island called Midsummer because the monkeys were hiding in the trees there. Then, starting at the Black Market and walk anti-clockwise around the island 100 times so that a monkey would magically appear on their shoulder.
