Where is Everyone?

Mods -- feel free to delete this post becaus it is unrelated to any activity or prompt -- but I just had to ask -- is this community still active?  There hasn't been a post in almost a month.  Where is everyone?  Are there not going to be anymore activities?  Of course, I understand that this was a comm mostly for looking forward to the new movie, and now that it's out, there's nothing to look forward to.  Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

Mod post – collecting GJ and IJ names for the PotC fandom
In case anyone in our fandom doesn't know yet, fandom has had another incident with Six Apart's TOS. Two artists have had their journals permanently suspended: ponderosa121 and elaboration. You'll note that neither comes up as a strikethrough as they did when journals were deleted in the last go around with Six Apart, but only as bolded names now.

All across my flist are posts about new journal names for greatest journal and insane journal . Oops: almost forgot journalfen, but I understand that's not quite as accessible.

While I admit that PotC seems less affected by this right now, it's important that we can find each other should we leave LJ. I'm asking that any of you who have made new journals or comms in GJ or IJ, please post links to them here. ETA: Most of the journals linked below are placeholders, very few of us have done more than create a journal, just in case. Please still leave your information even if it's a placeholder.

If you're a member of another PotC comm, please pass along the information to stop by this post and provide us with a way to reach you. Or, if your comm does the same thing, please provide a link to that post here as well.

#7: Barbossa
Wonderful activity topic!  And a chance to pimp my fic!

As far as I'm concerned, Barbossa's real name is Hector Cardew Tink and he used to be a wrecker in Cornwall.  I'm not sure how he came by the monkey, but I know he loves little Jack dearly.  Why else would he put up with the antics and the constant chattering?

I've just posted the third Nuts Out of the Locker fic about Barbossa and the Jacks here, with links to the previous two.  All the backstory and monkeys you can eat.  (Actually, the monkey's off-stage in Nuts 3, but he'll be back.)

Barbossa also narrates Hector's Bargain, which is almost serious and has lots about how Barbossa met Jack, life on the Pearl before and during the mutiny, and Barbossa's deal with Tia Dalma.

Can I add an extra question: what is really going on between Barbossa and Tia?

More Than a Deck and a Sail: Chapter Three
A response to potc dogwatch challenge
Author: compassrose7577
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Jack, Gibbs and the Black Pearl
Disclaimer: I own or claim nothing. I would, if I could, but I can’t so I don’t.
A/N : In response to a question posed in potc dogwatch, asking if there were any validity to the thinking that perhaps Jack might give up on his quest for the Black Pearl, I started this one-shot. But, as many of you have experienced, our dearly beloved characters tend to take over and lead us on voyages far longer we never intended to go.

A couple points: First, there is some validity to the treatment of Jack’s gangrene. It’s taken directly from an experience my husband had while in the service. Second, my husband has been sailing for nearly thirty years. When I posed the question to him if Jack might give up on the Pearl because of all the problems (as posed in the potc-dogwatch challenge) he nearly choked on his oliveburger. “Never” is the part of the response I can repeat here.

It’s unbeta’d, since I’ve overloaded my beta-fairy already. So any mistakes, point the pistol toward me. Comments are always a welcomed sight for sore eyes. Good or bad, please let me know. If it’s really bad, the ‘delete’ key is but a finger’s length away.

Mod Post
A gentle reminder: this community is specifically designed for the regular challenges and responses posted here , it's not a general PotC fic or discussion community (for that, we suggest either pirategasm or potc_discussion), we didn't create dogwatch to overlap all the communities that already exist in PotC.

Because of this, we request that each post be labeled with the activity it's related to, and that you do not post entries that aren't related to a particular activity. There's no time limit on any of the challenges, so if you want to go back and link your post to an earlier activity, please do so (The AWE activities are here , the table of prompts for for DMC is here and the one for AWE is here.), however, please do the research yourself to find an activity to link your post to, and let me know in the subject header.

Thanks!

Just as a small side point: I posed the question (as given in the challenge) to my husband, who has sailed for over thirty years. He nearly choked on his oliveburger when I suggested some thought Jack would give up on the Pearl just because of the hardships he'd been through in seeking her. As I recall, his verbal answer was: "Never!"

Jack Give Up the Pearl? Never!!
A response to the dogwatch challenge
Author: compassrose 7577

A/N: This is an intriguing challenge, but one I had no trouble answering, in my own mind, at any rate. I’ve a one-shot in the process, as we speak, on my flashdrive, but I still wanted to air a few thoughts first.

Sorry I haven't been around, but I have a couple of questions...
I feel really bad I've missed all the fun with AWE but a death in my immediate family kept me away.

Anyway....

1. In DMC, Davey Jones says "I raised the pearl for you from the depths of the ocean". [paraphrased] So what happened to the Pearl? What caused the sinking and why did Jack want it so bad? Was it his ship before? Did he captain it when he sailed for the Crown? Did Beckett cause its demise? Any clue??

2. When we see Weatherby Swann and Elizabeth crossing from England in CotBP, we see Norrington and he's wearing a dark wig. I get that they did this to show them younger and that time passed to move Elizabeth and Will to adulthood, but at what point did men change to white wigs? I get Swann would because of being promoted to Governor ["Do you think I wear this wig to keep my head warm"], and possibly Norrington would change for the same reason, a promotion. But was there a specific age when it changed? And how old is Norrington at the time of CotBP.

Thanks for any insight.

Post AWE Activity #5 - Norrington Meta, etc.
I've missed far too many of these great activities, but, inspired by fabu's recent meta post on Female Characters, I actually did write some Norrington meta today, as well as some for Elizabeth, and made a couple of recs, too. Go me!

Why is it so enjoyable to hash these things out? Fandom is an amazing thing. Link goes to my journal.

New fic: "With Interest" PG (Day 30)
Title: “With Interest” (No, it's not a drabble. But there's no other tag for fiction, it appears)
Rating: PG
Characters: Bill and Will/Elizabeth (not together), POTC
Disclaimer: Surely you don’t think these belong to me? Nah, they’re Buena Vista’s and Bruckheimer’s
Summary: Bill gets to continue paying off a long-overdue debt to his son. Sequel to A Debt to be Paid, though I think it could be read alone, too.
A/N: Thanks to betas yoiebear and metalkatt
Feedback: Is fabulous


He suspected his initial fascination had less to do with embracing her many charms and more to do with escaping a fate scratching out a living as a farmer under his father

Jack and his Pearl
Obsession. Then abandonment. Along that same train of thought, he's comfortable with leaving her behind and taking control of the Dutchman once he stabs the heart. I hate to say it, but the more I think about it, I think the Pearl has decreased in importance to him. I believe he still cares about her, but certainly not as much as he showed in COTBP. Maybe now he realizes that freedom isn't just within the Pearl specifically, but whatever way you chose to make it - like another ship or dingy for example.

There's more than a 50% chance that he'll try to reclaim her again. But I don't see how his bond to the Pearl is as great as Barbossa's is because he's only had it for roughly 3 years, whereas Barbossa's been captain of it for 10 plus however long he'll maintain it if Jack comes for it. In my opinion, the Black Pearl belongs to Barbossa; that's his ship. He worked for it! ;) I see him being a lot more posessive. And frankly, he's the better captain.

I had more in my head to put down, but it just went away! Ah well. There's my two cents for now. :D

Jack and the Pearl

Oh, this is a subject dear to my heart.  

When I first heard the rumor about this ending, I was amused.  Then I changed my mind and found it quite sad and devastating.  But then I came to the conclusion that it's okay, because you just know Jack'll get the Pearl back again.

After seeing the movie, I think the scene between Jack and Gibbs shows that Jack is okay with the loss of his ship.  After all, "death has a way of reshuffling one's priorities" and maybe he realizes that it's easy come, easy go.  And by that logic, it will very likely be easy come again.  After all, he is Captain Jack Sparrow.  I think he intends to get the Pearl back, but he's not obsessed with it.

Also, this time it isn't quite so much of a betrayal -- he wasn't marooned and left to die, and he seems to understand and not be too upset.  "Take what you can, give nothing back."  He would have done the same, had the situation been reversed.  

And he has the key part of the charts to the Fountain of Youth.  How long is the crew going to be loyal to Barbossa now that they realize this?  Plus, this crew is a nicer crew -- Pintel, Ragetti, Murtogg, Mulroy, Cotton, and Marty -- all of them are more likely to come back around to Jack's side.  

I think it's not a question of will he get the Pearl back, but when.  I hope it doesn't take ten years.  Does anyone want to write a fic about Jack getting the Pearl back real quick?  I'm working on one, but at the rate I'm going, well, it could be years.  And there's plenty of authors around that are way better than I am, anyway.

If anyone knows of any post-AWE fics that focus a little less on Will/Elizabeth and the Flying Dutchman, and more on Jack, let me know.
