Hello my luvs,

I know I've thrown a lot at you and the word count requirement is especially scary, but I don't want anyone to worry or think that they shouldn't attempt Challenge #12 because of that.

This is fun stuff. This is hobby stuff. It's something to do when you're sick of work and school. Just keep in mind you don't have to do it all at once. I know some of you have done two, three or even five thousand words in just one day. You have a month, so just pace yourself.

Also, as long as you meet the other requirements, I will still accept your story even if it doesn't make the 20,000 ish words Ok? The word count? THAT is a guideline. You have a month, so think of doing a longer story, but if you write something that is only nine or ten thousand words it will still be ok by me


I will be around this month if you have any questions or need help with anything. And I'm more than happy to help with ideas, editing and anything else you need.

Good luck everyone and I look forward to reading what you come up with!

~Jenwyn

Now, this one comes with a lot of rules, so pay attention and holler if you have questions.

Also, this challenge comes with DMC spoilers, so if you still haven't seen PotC:DMC... um, go see it and then look under the cut ;)

Notes: For some reason I got the deadline for this challenge mixed up in my head, and although I finished this fic off almost a week in advance, I didn't realize I'd screwed the submission date up until the morning after. So whether or not this should still count for voting is entirely up to you guys, but I'm just glad that it's posted and you can read it, because I really enjoyed writing it! And cursed myself with more words than a pirate knows when I thought I'd messed it all up...

Summary: Jack learns what the most dangerous kind of man is. Young!Jack. Noncanon-backstory.
Disclaimer: I am no Mouse.
Spoilers: Abso-posi-lutely bloody none.
Warnings: None whatsoever.
Notes: Tom Wolfe is the man mentioned in Sweet and Twisted. I'll definitely be doing more with him and Jack. I will defend my choice to use piratey accents in this fic by saying I probably won't do it again, unless lots of people like it. I strongly suggest reading Something to Lose before reading this fic, if you haven't already, because there's a bit of irony at the end you'll miss if you don't. I used the prompt for Challenge 9 here: "there is nothing more dangerous than a man who has lost everything."

Author: witchbabyweetz
Pairing/Characters: Will/Tia with mention of Jack/Liz, Will/Liz, and Bootstrap.
Word Count: 1400, luv.
Rating: PG
Genre: General drama and wonderings/wanderings.
Summary: When Will stops to think about where his has led him, he begins to wonder if it is really one worth living.
Disclaimer: Disney = owner. witchbabyweetz = lover.
Spoilers: Post-DMC.
Warnings: Some ghosting around the concept of suicide, but hopefully tactfully and justifiably done.
Notes: Even though I was excited to not have a speed challenge for once, I almost think those made me produce better writing! I like this, though – I think I’ve just had too much time to sit around and doubt it this time! Hopefully you’ll like it 
Special Thanks: My lovely beta, estelendur!

Will couldn’t believe it. Or at least, he didn’t want to. Certainly the young man knew that there had been an attraction between Jack and Elizabeth. Elizabeth was, after all, a beautiful and amazing woman. And Jack? When Will thought about it honestly, the pirate had an irresistible charm...and a certain beauty of his own that Will wasn’t quite sure how to put into words (or if he even wanted to reflect on it enough in order to come up with any).Collapse )

Pairing/Characters: Barbossa/Elizabeth (It won’t go away!!)

Word Count: 1974 (the longest one yet!)

Rating: erm- NC17 (violence, blood)

Genre: Prolly a bit angsty in places-

Summary: On the way to the cave, Elizabeth tries to jump ship with the coin and the crew are out for retribution.

Disclaimer: As much as it pains me, Barbossa is not mine, and I must take him back to Disneyland when I am done playing with him. * pouts *

Spoilers: none to my believing. (surely we’ve all seen CotBP???)

Warnings: blood is spilled. And oh yeah- written at 4:30am. * rubs eyes *

Notes: I was trying to communicate that Barbossa has become something of a different man since the curse took hold of him- more dishonourable in action, though he fights with it he realises that he has become something more dangerous. It was also while figuring out who to write about (and what a shock, I chose Hector) that I realised almost everyone in the film has lost everything at some stage. Go figure.

Oh yeah, and please let me know if it’s too bleeding heart- I don’t want to go down that road of the ‘aw he’s not as bad as he seems’ road that a lot of Snape fic travels.

Special Thanks: Geoff. You breathe spirit into the old sea dog.

Special Thanks: To scifiroots who kindly beta'd this story. She rocks in so many ways! Also: thanks to everyone whose fics I've been reading lately; the juices are flowing, so to speak, and I can't stop thinking about this 'verse! If you recognize any ideas or characterizations in this piece or any of my others, please just be flattered and don't think I'm stealing your stuff. More likely that not, I'm doing it unconsciously, and if I am indeed taking off from someone else's story or ideas, I will do my best to give them credit.

So, I was going to save this for a later challenge but since so many people have been getting along and think it's a good idea...would you guys like to have a challenge or two where you write with a partner?

Since I already told you about challenge 10, I'm going to officially issue these at the same time. But they do have different end times, so be sure to look at those. :)

Posted by witchbabyweetz on 8/14/06 at 12:06 am
Title: Tale of a Heart
Author: witchbabyweetz
Pairing/Characters: Bootstrap Bill
Word Count: 900+
Rating: PG for one use of the word “damn.” Shocking, I know.
Genre: Love and history, luv.
Summary: How Bootstrap Bill came to be the man we (sort of) know.
Disclaimer: Disney created these amazing characters, but now they take up their own lives in our minds.
Spoilers: Some vague references to Dead Man’s Chest.
Warnings: See rating ;)
Notes: This was written at the very last minute. Hopefully it doesn’t read that way because I loved it as I wrote it.
Special Thanks: To all of you lovely people for writing and reading and pirate loving!


Davy Jones was not the only pirate who ever hid his heart away.Collapse )

Challenge #8 : A Eulogy of Hope and Despair

Posted by commodoreschick on 8/13/06 at 11:52 pm
Current Mood: rushing!
Current Music: Lostprophets-- "Rooftops"
Title: A Eulogy of Hope and Despair
Author: Commodore's Chick
Pairing/Characters: Lord Culter Beckett, Tia Dalma (mentions of Norrington)
Word Count: 1702
Rating: PG
Summary: After the events of DMC, Lord Beckett and Tia Dalma reflect on what has happened and what is to come...
Disclaimer: I own neither character, though it did take me a while to come up with the title and the nifty way of presenting this.
Spoilers: Post-DMC. Loaded with spoilers, both subtle and not-so-subtle.
Warnings: Evilness and overloading for Beckett, general air of mystery for Tia. <3
Notes: This is to serve as the prologue for my longer Norrington fic. Hope is by Tia, Despair by Beckett's POV.
Special Thanks: This challenge. ^^ Thanks to this, I'm finally getting started on a story I was delaying needlessly. Thanks for the motivation!

Author: heatherlayne_n
Pairing/Characters: Weatherby Swann

Summary: Challenge #8 = Minor character(s) and superstition/revelation/hidden -- Weatherby Swann muses on the death of his wife and the future of his daughter.
Disclaimer: I screwed around all evening looking at other PotC fanart and fanfic, but I wanted to get this up in time for the challenge, so I had two hours in which to do it, total. Consider yourselves warned, heh.
Spoilers: None, really. It could be taken as happening in a couple of different times in either of the movies.
Warnings: n/a
Notes: n/a
Special Thanks: n/a

Challenge the eighth

Posted by estelendur on 8/13/06 at 09:24 pm
Title: Monkey
Author: Estelendur
Character: Jack the Monkey
Word Count: 310
Rating: G
Genre: Gen
Summary: Jack the monkey's adventures between the two movies.
Disclaimer: I don't own the monkey. Nor do I own the people who are mentioned. Disney owns PotC.
Spoilers: Makes a ton more sense if you've seen the after-credits easter egg for CotBP and have also seen DMC. Spoils parts of DMC if you pick up on who all the people are.
Warnings: Described by a friend as 'trippy'. Much different from the other stuff I've posted here. Other than that, nothing.
Notes: Uh... Nope. No notes.
Special Thanks: Thanks to witchbabyweetz and my friend Griffin for the betas.
The monkey slept atop heaps of gold...Collapse )
