as dead as a doornail

Challenge nine

Title: A Black Heart of Gold

Author: Penny-Elizabeth Neil

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.
