Some Other Fool Across the Ocean Years Ago by [personal profile] aris_tgd - James Norrington/Jack Sparrow, Anamaria/James Norrington - This is a wonderfully complex series of three stories set in the modern day that has reminded me again exactly why I fell in love with these characters and this world, back when the first movie came out. Some of the characters have been drinking from the fountain of youth, others are reincarnated modern versions of themselves, but all are to some degree possessed of more modern sensibilities, allowing for some deft critique of the colonialist nature of the source canon. I particularly love her James, a modern-day computer programmer with no memory of his past life, who for his entire adult life has been dreaming about a maddening and enticing pirate captain. The modern setting and the modern James, allow for a new perspective on Jack and James' relationship, one that I feel really gets to the heart of what both brings them together and pulls them apart.

Shore Leave by [personal profile] damned_colonial, [personal profile] commodorified and [livejournal.com profile] ladybretagne - Horatio Hornblower/Master and Commander/Sharpe/Pirates of the Caribbean crossover orgy-fic of DOOOOM. What do you get when you put five fangirls in a chat room and those five fangirls decide to put 7 Naval officers, 2 Army officers and a pirate in a locked room together? PORN is what you get. 16,000 words thereof. And it's HOT and good and remarkably in character all around. I admit, I'm shamelessly biased with regards to this fic, seeing as how I was intimately involved in it's creation AND got a girlfriend out of the whole thing, but it's been almost four years now and I still think it's one of the hottest things I've ever read, so I kind of doubt that's all bias, you know?

I recced PoTC for [livejournal.com profile] crack_van back in October, and I'm finally getting around to reposting those recs here. All are post-DMC. All gen except where pairing is listed.

The Mystery of Salt and Sea by [livejournal.com profile] typicrobots - Another take on Norrington during Dead Man's Chest. Woven through the narrative of DMC, this series of interconnected scenes illuminates both Norrington's emotional state during the movie and his motivations for his actions. It's a deft piece of writing, tight prose and sharp, precise scenes that integrate perfectly into the flow of the movie, both feeding off of and complementing the source material in the way the best fanfic does.

Old Bones by [livejournal.com profile] viva_gloria - A fabulous piece of future fic with a creepy, dark twist. Some many years down the road, Elizabeth runs into Captain Jack Sparrow walking down the street in Tortuga. On the surface it's a chance meeting between old friends, but there's an edge to their interaction, a tension borne of a shared past, and past betrayals. I hesitate to say too much about this story, it really is the kind of story best gone into cold. Suffice to say it's as clever and twisty and ultimately unpredictable as Jack and Elizabeth themselves.

Time it Was by [livejournal.com profile] the_dala - A kind of companion piece to my last rec: another possible future, another unexpected meeting between old acquaintances. This time it's Will and Tia Dalma who meet up. In a quiet corner of a pub, Will narrates the story of what happens to the love triangle after the Hollywood happy ending, it's not happily ever after, but it's hardly grand tragedy either, just life lived to it's fullest measure, for good and for ill. Dala is one of my favorite writers of Will, and her characterization here particulary rings true for me.

Five Ways of Running for Home by [livejournal.com profile] penknife - Jack/Elizabeth, Will/Elizabeth, Jack/Will, Elizabeth/Norrington, Will/Norrington - The whole fandom may be waiting to see what happens in At World's End but the real opportunity for fic writers is what happens after it's all over. Penknife offers up five possibilities in five pairings for what might happen after the journey to the world's end. Penknife has a great feel for all the characters and for the complex web of subtext and desire that connects them. Each of these ficlets ultimately explores one particular pairing, but the format and the Penknife's writing style emphasize the fluidity of relationships in this fandom, how easy it might be for almost any pairing to come to pass.

Commencement by [personal profile] linaelyn - Set between the first two movies, this is a truly novel take on the relationship between Jack and Anamaria. Theirs is an interesting relationship, adversarial but with an undercurrent of affection. And of course there's Jack's debt to Anamaria, the ship she won't let him forget he owes her. Linaelyn has a particular gift for writing the pirate minor characters, bringing the denizens of the Pearl to life in vibrant detail. Although this story is all about Jack and Anamaria, Linaelyn's fleshes out their world with a vivid depiction of life aboard the Pearl and a slowly revealed backstory that is surprising and yet strangely perfect.

Five Ways to Keep From Drowning by [livejournal.com profile] homme_sauvage - Sparrow/Norrington - Twenty-four hours in Tortuga with a fallen Commodore. I really like this take on Norrington. He's broken, jagged and razor-edged, but it's not irreparable; he's bitter and caustic but never maudlin. It's a tough line to walk, but [livejournal.com profile] homme_sauvage pulls it off fabulously, with this short, but densely packed story.

Dreams and Desire by [livejournal.com profile] gryphons_lair with [personal profile] commodorified - [livejournal.com profile] gryphons_lair takes a classic Sparrington trope and gives it a gloriously fresh spin. It's some unspecified time after the end of the movie and both Jack Sparrow and James Norrington find themselves perpetually distracted by thoughts and dreams of the other. It's a popular tale, but [livejournal.com profile] gryphons_lair makes it feel fresh and utterly believable. What carries it off is her fabulous feel for plot and characterization. Not only Jack and James come alive in this story, but a whole collection of supporting characters, from Lts. Gillette and Groves to Gibbs and Anamaria, every one of them is alive and distinct. They move in and out of the narrative, but they are just as alive and distinct and real as the two main characters. Meanwhile, [livejournal.com profile] gryphons_lair puts as much effort and attention into how Jack and James arrive at their eventual meeting as she does into the meeting itself. She takes her time, she makes it believable, so that the payoff is not merely incredibly sexy, but believable and right. [personal profile] commodorified is credited as co-author of the final part and her trademark skill for erotic writing is very apparant. Overall, it is simply a stunning, sumptuous story.

Regarding Cowrie Shells and Rum by [livejournal.com profile] the_dala - Pirates is a somewhat limiting fandom for femslash. There are really only two female characters we see much of at all, and their interaction in canon is rather limited. That being said, I love femslash and I adore Elizabeth/Anamaria as a pairing and this story captures everything I love about both. Dala's Elizabeth and Anamaria are two sides of the same coin. One young, but no longer innocent, the other hardened by life but not hard. Both supremely confident in themselves and in their capabilities. They are drawn to each other, in the back corner of a crowded tavern, in a heady mix of rum and sympathy and desire. Elizabeth's entire world has just shifted under her, but instead of falling she moves with it, moves into it, opens herself up to the new possiblities now before her. I love reading Dala's fic, because she just keeps getting better and better with every story she writes. She calls this story "just a little femmeslash PWP," but it really isn't. It's too complex to be dismissed that easily. It's a complicated a mix of emotions and motives and intentions with just enough plot to give them solidity and direction.

Crossed by [livejournal.com profile] firesignwriter - Everything Firesignwriter writes is phenomenal and this piece is no exception. Set shortly after the end of the movie, Crossed is told from Anamaria's point of view. The only three familiar characters featured are Anamaria, Jack Sparrow and Gibbs, and all three of them are spot on. In particular Firesignwriter does a terrific job of getting right inside Anamaria's head and bringing her to life; taking the foundation laid by the movie and filling it out into a complicated flesh and blood woman.

This is not a particularly light story. But it doesn't dwell in the darkness either. It has a feel of very matter of fact everyday brutality to it, of what its like to be a woman making your own terms in the roughest and toughest corners of a man's world. Anamaria looks at the world without any blinders and deals with it on its own terms and that's how the story is written as well. Firesignwriter has a stunning way with words, sketching out a scene or character with a bare minimum of words and perfectly capturing the feel of a time a place and the people in it.

The French Connection by [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen - Gileonnen was one of the earliest Sparrington writers and hers is the first Sparrington fic I remember ever reading. When I saw that only one of her fics and none of her Sparrington had been recced here, I knew I had to correct the deficiency. The French Connection is one of my favorites of her stories for the simple reason that it never fails to make me laugh. It's a short, light story, but it absolutely sparkles with wit and Gileonnen's delightful talent for the absurd. Written less than a month after the release of the movie, it is also a look back at the very early days of PoTC fandom. It was actually written before Norrington even had a recognized first name. He may not have had a first name, but the good Commodore did have an obsession. Perhaps a little too much of an obsession...

Acting Pirate Kennedy by [personal profile] linaelyn - This is a delightful PoTC/Hornblower crossover story, slipped into a gap in the HH timeline that I'd never thought of as a gap before I read this. Linaelyn's story of Archie Kennedy's brief sojourn with the crew of the Black Pearl is a deft combination of light banter and darker themes, as expertly befits both Archie and Jack. Part of what makes the story work is the way it's told, from the point of view of Jack's second in command, Gibbs. Linaelyn is the premiere Gibbs fan writing in PoTC and she has an almost uncanny grasp of the character, his mannerisms and voice. Her Jack is nicely complicated, and she does a nice job of presenting him with some interesting backstory. Linaelyn is primarily a PoTC writer, but she does an excellent job with Archie as well. It's an interesting change to see Archie through the eyes of Gibbs, a character who knows nothing of his past history.

There Was One by [personal profile] commodorified - This is one of those stories that's just so terribly incredibly hot and at the same time so gloriously honest and true to character that it floors me every time I read it. This is Jack and James as complicated, passionate and very fully realized individuals. There's strength in these two men, and flexibility -- like in the best swords. And really, this story is all about swords; its about the strength and the steal, the outer flash and the core of steel, and the meeting of two men of sharpened steel in a very different kind of battle.

The Highway is for Gamblers by [livejournal.com profile] the_dala - Dala takes two extremely minor characters and provides them with a rich and compelling backstory. Scarlett and Giselle are the two whores who slap Jack Sparrow in Tortuga -- that's all we know of them in canon -- but here these two women are brought beautifully to life. There's none of the fantasy of the movie here, these are two lower-class women who've lived hard lives and lost all their illusions, and yet in Dala's hands they are also appealing and captivating heroines. Dala deftly weaves her narrative around and through the movie. Familiar characters come and go, but we see them only as Scarlett and Giselle see them, just as we see Tortuga as it looks to two working women, trying to scrape by. There's darkness in this story, but ultimately it's strangely romantic and amazingly, impossibly real.

Gallo de Indias by [livejournal.com profile] doolabug - In a series of meetings -- some weeks and months apart -- we see the relationship between Captain Sparrow and Commodore Norrington gradually shift from antagonism to flirtation to passion. The changing relationship is presented excellently. Doola combines historical plot details, humor, fabulous character interaction and a succession of small perfectly drawn little moments as both Jack and James come to realize what's before them. This story has everything, it's clever, well characterized and incredibly hot.

Never Won Fair Lady by Malasita - A haunting little missing slice of time, mid-movie. Elizabeth remembers reflects on stories vs. reality. Malasita has a fabulous, sparing prose style; not a word more than needed and not a word out of place. Her Elizabeth is perfectly drawn, the girl poring over pirate stories and the woman living one both impeccably rendered. Haunting and gorgeous and perfect.

Legacy by [livejournal.com profile] gryphons_lair - An entirely plausible and gloriously hopeful view of Jack and James' possible future. [livejournal.com profile] gryphons_lair's descriptions here are marvelous, evoking a time and place and implying a complex web of relationships with only a few well-used words. The warmth and the emotion -- clear but understated -- is what really makes this fic. This is the future I like to imagine for Jack and James, and I cherish the way [livejournal.com profile] gryphons_lair brings it to life.

Scoundrels by [livejournal.com profile] viva_gloria - A beautifully drawn and blisteringly hot exploration of the three-way dynamic between Jack Sparrow and the newly-married Will and Elizabeth Turner. There's jealousy and possessiveness and attitude. Elizabeth and Jack and even Will get to snark and quip their fill, and then they all get to take their fill of one another. [livejournal.com profile] viva_gloria does an excellent job with multiple viewpoints and rapid switches -- a difficult thing to pull off. She's at her best when writing from the perspectives of Elizabeth and Will but really all three characters are written very well. She has a knack for getting completely inside their heads with only a few words and phrases and bringing out the complex and very human swirl of emotions present in a situation such as this.

Scars by [livejournal.com profile] siryn99 - "Every scar tells a story" begins this stunning gem of a fic, and for [livejournal.com profile] siryn99 the scars are the story. This is the story of three people who've lived very different lives but now find themselves drawn together -- united by their shared scars -- staring down an uncertain future. We see the threesome through Elizabeth's eyes and [livejournal.com profile] siryn99's Elizabeth is a very real and complex woman, sympathetic and secretive, frightened and bold and beautifully in-character.

The Fine Art of Seduction by [livejournal.com profile] penm - There's seduction in the air, and for once it's not Jack doing the seducing. A light, sexy and delightful helping of Will/Jack with a hinted side-dish of a most unusual pairing, The Fine Art of Seduction is told entirely from Jack's perspective and [livejournal.com profile] penm's Jack voice is perfect and perfectly hilarious throughout. [livejournal.com profile] penm embraces Jack's non-linear mind, his wandering thoughts, and makes them part of the story and part of the story-telling. Her use of language is beautiful, and her characterizations are universally excellent. Just lovely.

Freedom by [livejournal.com profile] copper_rose - A slight AU from the end of the movie leaves Jack Sparrow pardoned and delirious; struck down by a virus racing through Port Royal and haunted by the former crew of the Black Pearl. [livejournal.com profile] copper_rose gives us a more complicated -- and conflicted -- Jack then is often found in fic. At the time of the movie Jack's entire life has had one focus, one purpose for 10 years, what happens when that purpose is gone, there's a lot of emotional fallout there, and finding himself steps away from and then miraculously snatched away from the noose only makes it more so. I love this story because it deals with the emotion and the angst but there's nothing gratuitous about it, no unnecessary misery, no stress just for the sake of stress. In addition [livejournal.com profile] copper_rose works in a layered and convincing romance, the slow dropping of guard by both Sparrow and Norrington, the degree by degree shift in their relationship as first innocent and then much less so intimacies creep in. It's spectactularly done, and when the result of that creeping intimacy is finally realized it has a true emotional and erotic punch. Long, plotty, sexy and romantic, Freedom is a perfect example of everything that makes Sparrington such a fabulous pairing.

Courtship by [livejournal.com profile] guede_mazaka - Jack and Elizabeth are two peas in a pod, but their similarity -- and their closeness -- may have cost them both Will. Except impusliveness isn't the only trait shared by Jack and Elizabeth, and they are more then wily enough to turn betrayal into courtship. A very piratical courtship. Guede Mazaka has a great feel for all sides of the Will/Jack/Elizabeth threesome. Here, in particular, she gets inside Will's head, showing his solid strength, stubborn will and meticulous mind as he works out what's happened in his life and what he wants his future to hold. In addition to the main threesome, Guede Mazaka drops in appearances from several other characters, all excellently characterized and of service in forwarding the plot. Strongly plotted, superbly characterized and awash with Guede Mazaka's strong, perfect prose, Courtship is a true delight through and through.

Two Ales and Two Rums and Even More Rum by [personal profile] linaelyn - A mindblowing duet of angst and sensuality, this pair of stories is like nothing else I've read in the fandom. In the beginning and on the surface its is a light tale of drunken debauchery, of flirting and desire and passion. But underneath and through that Linaelyn wends a second thread of duty and infidelity, temptation and betrayal. It's an intoxicating mix. Linaelyn's Will is wholly believable and yet wholly her own, both callow youth and confident man, madly in love with his wife and yet still curious about what else life might offer him. Her Groves too is a man conflicted, torn between his desires and his conscious, between his personal choices and the dictates of his career. In the end something has to give, for both of them, and Linaelyn does a perfect job of guiding her readers and her characters on the breathtaking trip to the dizzy heights of that inevitable fall.

Be Careful What You Wish For by [personal profile] melusina and [livejournal.com profile] the_stowaway - One aspect of the film that seems to often be hard to pull off is the magic. Here, [personal profile] melusina and [livejournal.com profile] the_stowaway capture the magical feel of the film perfectly. Magic is there, but its understated, you have to look for it -- or have it look for you. When Elizabeth Turner goes looking for magic, the consequences for Jack and James are innumerable. [personal profile] melusina and [livejournal.com profile] the_stowaway are seperately both terrific writers, and fabulous at characterization. Together, they really find the essence of the characters. In particular, their Jack is fantastic, he's not necessarily the nicest of men but for all his petty trickery he is at heart a good man and that makes all the difference. This is a story of magic and memory and love and conflict and possibilities. It's hot and sexy and angsty and hopeful, richly characterized and fleshed out with all the details and side-characters that make for a truly believable world and a truly terrific story.

Craziest Pirates of the Caribbean by [livejournal.com profile] commodoresexual - Everything Commodoresexual writes is great and this little gem, written for the Tertiary Character Ficathon, is no exception. The pairing is unlikely, yet handled believably and with dignity, but the focus of the story is not just the unlikely love affair of Anamaria and Marty, but the whole crew of the Black Pearl. Jack Sparrow's crew. Commodoresexual shows us a glimpse of that crew, from within and without, she makes characters -- some of whom don't even have canon names -- come alive, makes them flesh and blood and altogether human, makes them a family. Where else but on the Black Pearl would the lone female crewman pair off with the lone midget? Only in Jack Sparrow's strange-glorious crew of the craziest pirates of the Caribbean.

Alchemy by [livejournal.com profile] munchkinott - An extremely erotic and sexy poly story with the focus on the het aspects of the threesome. This is a story about committment and fidelity, about recognizing and valuing that which one has. And its about the intoxicating mix of love and lust and desire and trust within a relationship. I always like reading a threesome story that isn't just about the sex but about the committment between the three characters. Here, Munchkinott captures that dynamic perfectly and also provides some of the hottest het sex imaginable.

Synchrony by [livejournal.com profile] redorchard13 - Pirates is a great fandom for AUs and this one is no exception. A modern look at the essence of the Sparrow/Norrington relationship. [livejournal.com profile] redorchard13 keeps the feel and characterization of Jack and James true even while completely changing their surroundings. Reincarnation stories are hard to pull off, but this one is perfect, full of sexually charged witty banter and that constant Sparrington battle for the upper hand.
recsforalloccasions: Black and white cat making Paul Gross Arms \o/ (Default)
It's been two years since Pirates of the Caribbean hit the theaters and in that time the fandom has grown massively and is still attracting new writers and readers alike. There are a plethora of PoTC communities these days, too many to keep track of, all these different places where different bits of the fandom hang out. But in the beginning there was one place for PoTC fic, [livejournal.com profile] pirategasm.

[livejournal.com profile] monkeypuzzle gave me the idea forever ago to do this and now I'm finally getting around to it. A recs set and guided tour of the early days of PoTC fandom on livejournal.

Much of that early fic gets lost in the shuffle these days and yeah, some of it is best left there, but there are certainly some gems. And in those months is our history too, the first attempts at now-popular pairings, early takes on characterization and relationships, the first writers with no knowledge of James' first name. I figure most of the people reading PoTC now weren't reading back in those first months, so most of this fic will be brand new to most of you and for those of us who were around then, well it's great to revisit old nearly-forgotten friends.

PoTC: the early months

There was PoTC fic months before the movie was released. This was a highly-anticipated fandom. The discussion community, [livejournal.com profile] arrrrr was created in January of 2003. [livejournal.com profile] pirategasm was created on April 1st, and the first Jack/Will fic was posted that very day by [livejournal.com profile] leggyslove. Written with information gleaned from trailers and summaries, the characterizations bear little resemblance to the characters we'd soon come to know and love, but still it was a beginning. It didn't take long for the first RPS to come along, some Orlando/Viggo Lotrips set on the PoTC set by [livejournal.com profile] bunnyfics was posted on May 4th.

There was a steady trickle of fic and drabbles both slash and RPS. All the slash was either Jack/Will or Will/OC. The first het posted to the community was an RPS Keira/Orlando ficlet posted on June 10th. The first RPS threesome was posted on June 20th, but it was a link to a now-deleted journal.

The movie opened in wide release on July 9th and there was an immediate upswing in fic posting beginning July 10th. The community went from 1 or 2 posts every couple days to 5 or 6 posts a day to 25 posts on July 18th alone.

The first Will/Elizabeth wasn't posted until July 10th, but it was a very good beginning and my first rec.

At Sunset by [livejournal.com profile] tigs, Will/Elizabeth, G. A lovely and lyrical portrait of the early days of their marriage, as they feel out their place in the world and their place with each other.

The first posted Jack/Will/Elizabeth and the first implied Jack/Norrington came together in one fic, also posted on the 10th.

Figuring it Out by [livejournal.com profile] serafina20, Jack/Will/Elizabeth, implied Jack/Norrington, PG-13. A sweet bit of estabished relationship humor.

Some of the best early fic was written by Malasita. Her journal is now deleted, but her fic is still online. The first 3 parts of the ...And a Bottle of Rum Jack/Will/Elizabeth series were also posted on July 10th

July, 2003 was a busy month on [livejournal.com profile] pirategasm; there were 290 posts to the community. Here are some of the highlights:

Rum by [livejournal.com profile] ladyjaida, Jack/Bootstrap Bill, implied smut. A character study of a young Jack Sparrow, as seen through the eyes of Bootstrap Bill. A perfect mix of fluid, almost dreamlike descriptions and sharp clever dialogue.

Mirage in Blue and Green by [livejournal.com profile] darkeyedwolf, Jack/Will, PG. Jack/Will was the most popular pairing right out of the gate, and this is a lovely bit of post movie Jack/Will.

By Moonlight by [livejournal.com profile] circe_tigana, Elizabeth, PG. On the island with Jack, Elizabeth reflects on her present and her future. A perfect Elizabeth voice. Could fit into the movie without even a ripple.

The Longest Night by [livejournal.com profile] circe_tigana, Elizabeth & Jack, PG-13. Seven years post-movie, Elizabeth goes looking for Jack. I absolutely adore this fic and Circe's Elizabeth, this story is still a favorite of mine.

Dance in the Moonlight by [livejournal.com profile] sister_wolf, Jack/Will/Elizabeth, PG-13. They all have their scars to bear and the full moon brings out everyone's ghosts.

Aberration by [livejournal.com profile] tigs, Will/Elizabeth, G. Will always loved Elizabeth, but Elizabeth loved a pirate, and in the end, Will is only a man. Painful, yet completely believable as well.

Full Circle by [livejournal.com profile] mollita, Jack/Will/Elizabeth, PG-13. In the year after the wedding, Will fears he's losing Elizabeth. He cannot keep her on shore, and so he follows wherever she leads. A few short scenes that perfectly sketch out the transformation of Will and Elizabeth's relationship.

Sunrise by [livejournal.com profile] moonwhip, Jack/Will/Elizabeth, PG-13. Morning on the Pearl. A lovely, happy bit of established relationship threesome-fic.

First Warning by [livejournal.com profile] dorkorific, Jack/Will, PG-13. A thoroughly delightful fic with one of the best opening lines ever: Will always imagined that the shells and beads woven into the dark tangle of Sparrow’s hair served much the same purpose as a bell around the neck of a particularly vicious and ill-smelling cat: a warning for birds, the infirm, and the allergic.

The Wistful One by Collie, Elizabeth/Anamaria, PG-13. Anamaria is everything Elizabeth wants to be and maybe everything she wants as well.

The End of My Pirate Days by [livejournal.com profile] beanside, Elizabeth, PG. Preparing for the marriage of her daughter, Elizabeth still longs for the sea that she left behind all those years ago. Hopeful and lovely.

Of Shackles and the Sun by [livejournal.com profile] nilchance, Elizabeth/Will, hints of Jack/Will/Elizabeth, PG. Elizabeth and Will's wedding, as seen from Jack's vantage point hidden on a back balcony. I love Jack's perception of Will and Elizabeth and their continued ability to defy all his expectations.

A Scandalous Lack of Morals by [insanejournal.com profile] ponderosa121, Jack/Will/Elizabeth, NC-17. One of the first good really smutty Jack/Will/Elizabeth stories. Seriously hot and just great fun.

Quickening by [livejournal.com profile] pearl_o, Will/Elizabeth, PG. Isolated and lonely in Port Royal, Elizabeth is becoming a stranger to Will. This reads very true to me, both Elizabeth and Will's actions.

The Wedding Gifts by [livejournal.com profile] fajrdrako, Jack/Will, PG. Jack comes back with a wedding gift for Will and Elizabeth and something just for Will as well. A delightfully bantering encounter.

Reason for Madness by [livejournal.com profile] penm, Jack/Will, PG-13. What is it that draws Will to the sea and to Jack? Short, but beautifully descriptive.

Hurricane Jack by [livejournal.com profile] shrift, Jack/Will, NC-17. One of the definitive early Jack/Will stories. Will shows up in Tortuga, refusing to discuss Elizabeth. Jack does what comes natural and gets him drunk. Everyone is the happier for it.

Alchemy by [livejournal.com profile] munchkinott, Jack/Will/Elizabeth, NC-17. Extremely sexy poly relationship fic, with the focus on the het sides of the triangle. Highly recommended.

The French Connection by [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen, Jack/Norrington, PG-13. Gileonnen was perhaps the most prolific early Sparrington writer. Most of her stories are light humor, and this is one of the best. Norrington has a bit of an obsession with catching a certain pirate, but maybe he's gone just slightly overboard this time.

Fear by [livejournal.com profile] gileonnen, Jack/Will/Elizabeth, PG-13. Another personal favorite. Jack and Elizabeth both have nightmares they can never share with Will and at night they take turns guarding eachother's sleep.
