Remember that when watching a middle-aged, redheaded waitress and her daughter taunted by children for their strange way of talking, passing the sallow-faced, somber neighbour who prefers candles to electricity, finding a sky-blue twinkle under matted hair of a homeless man.

Pride was the reason they survived.

What Spider liked was men, men fairly close to his own age, say between thirty and fifty or fifty-five, men who were just as jaded and kinky as he was.

Author's Note: In the years between 1803 and 1812 British naval captains seized over 10,000 American sailors to man British ships against their will. This practice was known as impressment. The pressing of American sailors was not the sole cause of what became known as The War of 1812, but it was one of the major deciding factors.

During the early months of the conflict, the HMS Macedonian fought a battle with the USS United States in the Atlantic Ocean some 500 miles west of the Canary Islands. An excerpt of Samuel Leeches' biography "A Voice From The Main Deck" was the reference used to create the following Harry Potter-ized version of this historical event.
