Fantasy Peter Pan Captain Hook Neverland

Peter Pan was kind of a dick. Neverland exists solely so Peter Pan can play out his fantasies. He wants adventures, so he gets pirates...regardless of what the pirates think of the matter. Even if the pirates were real people with real lives, and people who cared for them, and maybe, just maybe hoping for one more chance to redeem themselves from some really terrible deeds. Too bad! Neverland is a paradise, but only as long as you’re Peter. If you’re a pirate, it’s a fate worse than death.
