Before we get started, I would like to direct your attention to this picture drawn for me by D-Ray, because it is guaranteed to warm the cockles of your stone-cold heart.

In Chapter Thirty-Six: The Quarter-Deck, we finally see some plot. It's about time. )

What Moby Dick and The Hunchback of Notre Dame have in common (so far):

Both were written by men with agendas. Victor Hugo (HoND) wanted people to pay attention to all of the admittedly gorgeous architecture in Paris, so he wrote a book featuring it so prominently that it threatened to overwhelm the plot. Herman Melville (Moby D) noticed that no one had yet written an entertaining yet educational book about the whaling industry and endeavored to do just that. Whether or not he succeeded, I don't know quite yet. But I did learn about how they used to price booze back in the day.

And without further ado, Chapter 3! )
