Was thinking about The Secret Garden this morning (don't ask me why; I haven't read that book in years) when something occurred to me.

Why did no one ever tell Mary about Colin? She found him on her own, and by accident. Would "You have a cousin named Colin. He's too ill to receive visitors at the moment, but you might be able to meet him someday" really have been so hard to say? And why did everyone try to hide him from her? In the chapter where Mary hears Colin moaning and crying, Martha insists it's the wind.

The things you think about at six in the morning.

At long last, it's finally up: Ghost Ship

If I don't receive at least one Raoul-bashing review, I will be very disappointed.

Have recovered from aforementioned shock.

In other news, The Unknown's summary reminds me of Phantom.

"A criminal on the run hides in a circus and seeks to possess the daughter of the ringmaster at any cost."

And it even stars Erik and Raoul! Er, Lon Chaney and Norman Kerry.

I'd like to see it, but I can't find it anywhere. *pouts* I want more Chaney in my movie diet.

Just watched Witness for the Prosecution.

I'll let you know when I've fully recovered from the shock.

I doubt it will be anytime soon.

Turns out I have no idea how to write an action scene. At all.

There is plenty of information about how pirates boarded ships, but nothing about how they actually got the captain and crew to surrender. So I'm on my own for that part.

I've decided to call the fic Ghost Ship, for lack of a better title.

I wish I had more faith in my writing skills.

In which Hope meets Will, convinces him to teach her to swordfight, and...well, you'll see.

Warning: Chapter Four contains sexual assault.


DISCLAIMER: I do not own anything POTC related.
NOTE: Sorry that last chapter was so sad and depressing. I thought it necessary to accentuate that part of Hope's life to help the flow of the rest of the prequel, with Jack Sparrow's entrance and her attitude towards him in the beginning.

Aria: Something about that scares me.

Holy shit.

I have read this story twice now and still cannot comprehend it.

Good grief. I know I can be a bit of an attention seeker on the Internet, but I've never done anything like THIS. I applaud the poster's Internet detective work. (And yes, I know this post is six years old, but it's still well worth sharing.) Now I'm starting to wonder about all my Internet friends...

betweensunandmoon: (PotC)
Good grief, that's a long title.

In honor of PotC 5 (which I still haven't seen yet), I'm sporking this fic. Or rather, I'm making my OCs Aria and Naomi spork this fic.

Hey, ladies. Remember Gethsemane Butler?
Aria: I try not to. What about her?
Her stories are long gone off of, but her profile's still there...and with it, her favorites list.
Naomi: Oh, boy.
Most of them are from fandoms I don't know, but there were two PotC fics and one Phantom fic. This was the shortest of the three. The Sue is fairly inoffensive, but the prose and grammar suck. Shall we?
Aria: You say that like we have a choice.
Naomi: *elbows Aria* Sure!


Chapter One )

Next Chapter: A Life Started & A Future Ended

Aria: How do you end a future?
Naomi: Wait, the lights aren't coming back on. Does this mean we have to do another chapter?
Aria: I guess.

Warning: This chapter contains a death.

Chapter Two )

Next Chapter: The Art of Love

Naomi: I smell Sue-romance.
Aria: So do I, but that's for next chapter.

The director for They Died With Their Boots On?

Raoul Walsh.

Indestructible - Introduction and Part I

Or, a multi-part meditation on Severus Snape, moral struggle, and love.

This looks bad already.

This author's note is not the worst I've ever read, but I refuse to leave any part of this fic unsporked, so here you go.

The good news: I wrote the prologue to my pirate!Christine fic.
The bad news: Now I have to write Chapter 1.

I want Chapter 1 to open with an action scene. I have never written an action scene before in my life.

Still, there's a first time for everything, right?

Errol Flynn's autobiography and PMS do not mix.

At all.

...The former was an entertaining read, even though I'm pretty sure at least half of it was bullshit. I'd probably have a lot more to say, were I not currently at the mercy of the latter.

The popularity of a story is usually inversely proportional to its quality.

It's up!

Because why should E/C shippers get to have all the fun?

betweensunandmoon: (PotC)
The final chapter, in which Erik has a flashback and decides to kidnap Christine.

In which Alana is the voice of reason, Erik murders a random crewman, Erik and Meg rescue Jack, the author bastardizes song lyrics, Erik and Christine finally meet face-to-face, and I write a spitefic.

In accordance with this post, I'm classifying Sues I have sporked or am currently sporking.

From [ profile] marysues:


1) Your own name with a variation
2) Name of a god/goddess or constellation with the same start as your real middle name
3) A blend of your favourite animal and colour
4) Your mother's middle name with an extra 'Y' 'I' or 'E' for good luck. If you don't know, or she doesn't have one, just make something up.
5) Any random plant
6) A romantic-sounding name
7) Your dad's middle name with extra Y's for good luck. If you don't know or he doesn't have one, make one up.
8) An anime/manga character
9) Anything from your fandom
10) A last name of someone from your fandom who you DON'T want to have anything romantic to do with.

So, uh...
