Hello everyone!
Sorry your mods have been MIA this past month. You know school - it thinks that it is the most important thing. Pshaw. What could be more important than piratefic? ;)

Anyway, here is a short challenge for you.

Genre: General/angsty
Summary: Groves must choose: his lover or his career.
Disclaimer: Not mine, never were, never will be.

OK. Due to popular demand (and because I have no good ideas today that aren't dirty), I am extending Challenge 23 until whenever I get home from 300 on Friday night, probably around 2230 EST. So please write something, y'all.

Challenge 23 & Banners

Hey everyone. Hope that you had a good weekend. This next challenge is going to be a full week, Sunday evening to Sunday evening. Hopefully we'll get a few more people involved. The points are as follows right now:

summerstwilight is leading the pack with 27 points.
heatherlayne_n has 14 points.

Remember, you can post as many stories as you want for each prompt, so don't think you can't catch up to these two. Again, the prize is for the first person to reach 100 points and it's a custom-made PotC-themed wallpaper. But, in all honesty, the points don't really matter. I'm just trying to boost participation. That's all. So, please write, even if you don't give a shit about points.

Challenge 22 ended 47 minutes ago. Thanks to everyone who participated. Just a reminder: PRETTY PLEASE put the challenge number in the subject line. Thanks. Banner, points updates, and a new challenge coming soon (after food and sleep for yours truly)!


Posted by summerstwilight on 2/23/07 at 01:17 pm
Title: Of Oranges and Rum
Author: Summerstwilight
Pairing/Characters: Jack, Gibbs, various and sundry sailors
Word Count: somewhere around 800, I should think.
Rating: G
Genre: General/humor
Summary: There’s an awful lot of rum to be had, and Jack Sparrow wanted it.
Disclaimer: Not my characters, no infringement meant.
Spoilers: Really just for PotC 1. This is an odd backstory story.
Warnings: None
Notes: None.
Special Thanks: I guess to my friends Joey and Donnie, who told a story of oranges and retrieval that was so outlandish as to inspire this one. Also to anyone who read this ^_^

We're not talking about ordinary oranges here...Collapse )

Challenge 22--Mate

Posted by heatherlayne_n on 2/23/07 at 02:44 pm

Characters: Jack, Gibbs, Max, Mary

Summary: Looking out for a friend
Disclaimer: Nothing you recognize belongs to me. I make no money from this (but wouldn't that be nice?)
Spoilers: None, really.
Warnings: Subtle sexual innuendo.
Notes: Johnny Depp said in the commentary/extra thingies on DMC that the bone in Jack's hair is actually the shinbone of a reindeer. This is my (and Jack's) story of how he got it. Among other things.

Spoilers: Through DMC
Warnings: Terrible mistreatment of typing in dialect. I tried.
Notes: Any and all historical/geographical information was gotten from either Wikipedia or my own brain, so don't trust the supposed facts much further than you could throw the Interceptor, savvy?

Hi, everyone. Until we get the prize list squared away, here's what I would like to do with the challenges I post and prizes:

1.) If you participate in the challenge and write a story, you get 10 points. You may submit as many stories as you would like as long as they are in accordance with the requirements and are in before the deadline. At the end of the challenge, I will make a post of where people stand, points-wise.

2.) I will offer bonus points TBD in each challenge for various things within the story, e.g., include: a sandbar, a doll, and a handshake; or for 50-cent words.

3.) First person to reach 100 points will receive a custom PotC wallpaper made by yours truly, featuring anyone you like (and I'm not above making naughty manips, either ;)).

4.) Everyone who submits will get a participation banner.

5.) Other than that, all rules apply.

Now, without further ado (adieu?), here is (a weekend speed challenge, as requested):

CHALLENGE 21Collapse )

Happy writing!

Hey everyone. As elvensorceress works hard to figure out the prize system to be implemented soon, I have been making banners. Now, I'm just making participation banners, rather than 1st, 2nd, and 3rd because, well, one thing at a time. Anyway, here are banners for challenges 10, 13, 14, and 15 (sorry they're so late). elvensorceress has one to post for 11. Coming soon.

Hi everyone! I'm tenacitydrader and I've recently been asked by elvensorceress to help out with this comm. I am excited about it and am now going through the process of archiving all the old challenges to see what has been done and posting an index in the user info. Before I post the next challenge, I would like to know what you guys think about this community and the direction you'd like to see it go in. There are 104 members, 87 of which watch the community, so I'm really hoping for some feedback.

Back when it first started, people posted a lot of great work, and seemed very fired up about the community and the challenges. But as I go through the archives, I see that people have started to taper off. I understand that a lot of you are in school and life gets in the way, but my goal as your new co-mod is to try and re-vitalize the community and get people involved once again. So, I want to hear from you. For example:

Did anyone (besides me)/is anyone doing challenge 12?
What do you want to see on this comm in general?
Are long challenges better or short ones?
Is there anyone out there?

#12 Haunted Past

Posted by tenacitydrader on 1/30/07 at 06:22 pm
Title: Haunted Past
Author: tenacitydrader
Characters: Pretty much everyone
Pairings: Tia Dalma/Davy Jones, Tia Dalma/Barbossa, Tia Dalma/Beckett
Word count: 37,529
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Speculation for III
Summary: The best summary is in the requirements for the challenge. This fic has a lot of backstory on Tia Dalma, Barbossa, Davy Jones, and Beckett that is used as a context for what happens after DMC.
Disclaimer: All characters and settings herein are property of Disney and Bruckheimer productions. I do not profit from this in the form of monetary or other compensation.
Spoilers: Because this is set after Dead Man’s Chest, there are massive DMC SPOILERS!!!
Warnings: This fic wraps up the trilogy, so there is character death herein (also in accordance with requirement group “B”).
Notes: I did all of requirement group “A” and most of “B.” I stuck to canon fairly well, except I did take some creative license by making this other fic I wrote a while ago part of canon backstory. You don’t have to go and read it, but you should know what it’s about. In a nutshell: between movies, Norrington, near death, washes up on Tia Dalma’s beach and she saves his life, lets him crash at her place, plus through supernatural means, she shows him what marriage to Elizabeth would have been like (not so good).
Special thanks: I’d like to thank my indefatiguable beta, linaerys

Challenge #20

Posted by heatherlayne_n on 1/16/07 at 10:55 pm
Title: Her Game
Author: heatherlayne_n
Pairing/Characters: Jack/Elizabeth...?
Word Count: approx. 1,440
Rating: mild PG-13
Genre: Gen, angst-ish
Summary: Challenge #20 = Jack needs rescuing
Disclaimer: Not mine, not for profit.
Spoilers: For DMC, barely. I don't know when this would take place. Perhaps after AWE, though since I haven't seen anything about that movie, there are no spoilers for it here.
Warnings: Messy eating
Notes: I started this before work today, and finished it later at night. Sorry it wasn't in in time for the actual deadline of Challenge 20.

Challenge #20

Posted by st_minority on 1/15/07 at 09:57 pm
Title: Return to Me
By: St. Minority
Rating: PG-13
Characters/Pairings: Barbossa, Jack, Elizabeth, Will, Gibbs, Tia Dalma
Word Count: Around 1,714
Warnings: little bit of gore I guess, and a m/m -kiss kind of
Disclaimer: I don't own POTC - all belongs to Elliott, Rossio, Bruckheimer, Disney...I make no profit.
Summary: Dead men tell no tales, but they can be restored.
Spoilers: Not really, unless you don't want to read about the way I see World's End.
A/N: I worked on this all day, and I'm glad I was able to get it done. :D This is my sort of interpretation of what World's End would be like and was inspired in part by the dead army from Lord of the Rings and a lyric about "phantom ships lost at sea" from a BBMak song (woo! Anyone remember them?).

Challenge #19

Posted by st_minority on 1/14/07 at 09:40 pm
Title: Bittersweet Freedom
By: St. Minority
Rating: PG-13/R
Characters/Pairings: Jack/Will, Gibbs, brief mention of Bootstrap
Word Count: Around 3,577
Warnings: M/M, nudity, brief language, depression....
Disclaimer: I don't own POTC - all belongs to Elliott, Rossio, Bruckheimer, Disney...I make no profit.
Summary: Some hurts run too deep.
A/N: This is based off of justawench's astounding "Longing" series manips found here, here, and here. The "misery" got to me and weaved the pictures together in a sort of dismal way. :D
This also plays heavily on the fact that Will's lost everything (in my mind), so it's set after DMC.
