Jaquery Tattery was born at sea, and he grew up in a town far from the sea, and all he wanted to do was return to the sea.

Genre: Fantasy


The Tatterys were tailors who started working in town with a humble business of repairing and refreshing old clothes, and soon expanded to fine tailoring of clothes and tapestries. Jack learned the trade of sewing and tailoring from a young age, as his brother and sister had been required to do before they set out on their own. He knew he would one day mind the family business. Jack was proud of his family’s trade and their shop, and he admired what his parents had built, but so did he admire their courage incoming to a new land to build a new life. He had never gone on any such adventure, and feared he never would.

Still, he dreamed.


What’s the Word (that inspired the story)?

Episode Art Description: Digital drawing. Part of a sail whose braided border is being pierced by a needle. The sail sits on the lap of a person, at right of image, whose left hand grips a section of the braided border and whose right hand, equipped with a sailmaker’s sewing palm, directs the need through the braid of cloth. An image is stitched onto the sail and is partially visible, the body of a serpent entangled around a boat with one sail unfurled at bottom center and middle. At bottom right, the serpent’s head with mouth parted, looking at the ship.
