Challenge # 4 - What A Woman Knows

Title: What a Woman Knows
Author: witchbabyweetz
Pairing/Characters: Tia Dalma/Elizabeth Swann. Tiabeth? Swanndalma? ;)
Word Count: 3000
Rating: arrRg.
Genre: Femmeslash, luv.
Summary: Tia's been experiencing a dry spell for quite a while, but when the rain comes, she finds reviving from an unexpected source.
Disclaimer: Disney owns 'em; I just play with 'em.
Spoilers: This fic is post-DMC so please keep that in mind before reading if you haven’t yet seen it (and if you haven’t, well…get to it, mate!)
Warnings: If you don't want to read about two lovely ladies learning about lady loving, well then...This is not the fic you're looking for, luv ;) (But for any wary shippers, I must note: It's not very graphic, and it's not all about sex! My usual character exploration serves as foreplay, in a manner of speaking...)
Notes: I tried to suggest Tia's accent with some spelling alterations here and there that hopefully are more helpful and faithful than cumbersome or sloppy-seeming. I find it hard to draw that line; it's like, I can hear her in my head saying everything perfectly, but whether or not I can communicate that is another thing entirely. I guess we'll see, won't we? Do let me know what you think!
Special Thanks: My loverly beta estelendur for braving the Tia/Liz action and for all of her comments and advice.

Challenge 4-- A Pirate's Minuet

Title: A Pirate's Minuet
Author: Commodore's Chick
Pairing/Characters: Norrington, Elizabeth, various drunken personages of Tortuga
Word Count: 942
Rating: PG-13 for darkness, drunkness, random musical terms
Genre: Dark/ Action
Summary: It's another clear night in Tortuga and things are about to get stormy at a local tavern. A tribute to the kick-arse fighting scene featuring the fallen commodore and his nifty sword skills.
Disclaimer: This should be categorized as being blatantly not mine. The characters are not mine. The scene is directly taken from the second movie, as are snippets of the dialogue. The action I describe is not mine, I don't own the inn or the swords, or Norrie...*sob*
Spoilers: DMC spoilers
Warnings: Much. Angsting at the end, severe lack of humour, loads upon loads of descriptive words, at least four types of dances, and the pronouns! Oh, the pronouns! ... It's enough to make any hardened writer shiver. xD *lol*
Notes: This is an mild!angst, dark story. It's not totally doom-and-gloom because I think I'm too much of a sap to be able to write anything that does not feature cuteness in one way or another. That being said though, this is my description of the night at Tortuga, where guns blaze and swords clash while a man forgotten to the world begins a minuet...
Special Thanks: To my mum who took me to see DMC (again) for the fourth time, which inspired this fic.  We're still not tired of it. ;D Also, to the excellent pirate-fight-scene music of the movie and to "The Ghost of You" by My Chemical Romance.
