First Mate Timothy Michael Dunn does not know which is reality; the world in which he weaves and continually escapes from a mental institution and lives in a small beach town, or the world where he lives as the First Mate on a Time Machine disguised as a Pirate Ship. His dreams become Reality.



Short Summary

The main character lives as a First Mate to his cousin, the Captain, his Master, on his pirate ship. Timothy soon awakes in an institution and is convinced that the memories of living as a Pirate and First Mate are nothing but a dream.

The Captain and his Mate must bend the rules as they begin to despise their journey of finding the Fountain of Youth for a group of Scientists. They then use the time machine to save their lives and for selfish purposes, and in order to escape a life in shackles for meaningless crimes.

Development Pitch

The adventure does not disway the audience by the protagonists' dilemma, rather they are intrigued by his sorrow, dismay, panic and loneliness, and are relieved when they see him excelling as a Pirate, and then later after getting his life together and standing up for his love. He is a captivating character that needs no further insinuation as to his devotion and sense of purpose. He is someone who appears aloof and silly, but has the utmost in confidence of his superiors and coworkers. The characters adapt emotionally to their predicaments, and even rebel in an immature way, this is reflected heavily in the calamity around them. The books each reflect a different memory of the character's life and world, adapting easily to a series or franchise because the adventures are alot in and of themselves. Each chapter is its own complete world, each book (the story consists of 4 parts or BOOKS) the culmination of the world before it with a slight variation to time, but not to intention or purpose. The tale is unique in its ability to thrill and cause inquisition enables audiences to anticipate but not predict what is around the corner. The simple Pirate Journey becomes an act of Obsession that is not quenched thoroughly enough when the characters search the entire globe for the missing Fountain of Youth battling ghouls and villains, pirate and questor.
