CALLING ALL NORRINGTON FANS! [Aug. 26th, 2011|04:24 pm]
Old POTC Plot Bunny Revivals


Now that I've broken your eyeballs and have your attention (hopefully) ... ahem ...

AVAST, MATIES! (In the proud tradition of Will Turner using the wrong word)

I’ve been noticing around various parts of fandom the last few months, since the fourth POTC movie came out, many fans lamenting the absence of our beloved Norrington. So, with that in mind – let’s have am impromptu fic fest!!

This is going to be a pretty easy thing. Basically, here’s how it’ll work:

1. Post a comment to this entry with a story idea. It can be short; it can be long. It’s kind of like a kink meme (for those of you familiar with that concept - and if you're not, ask an f-lister to show you one), except it’s not anonymous or particularly kinky. There’s no limitation on ‘ship – as long as Norrington features chiefly in it.

2. If you see a prompt you want to fulfill by writing a story, write the story and post it separately to this community (or here and your Norrington community of choice – it’s up to you!). Just cite the prompt in your author notes or summary - and be sure to post the link to answer the requester, so the swabbie knows it’s for them!

3. RULES: Keep your prompts upbeat and positive – and, of course, with Norrington as the central character. And, no character-bashing – not of Norrington, not of any other characters. Remember, this is supposed to be fun and an homage to Norrington.

Finally – don’t dally, lubbers! Start posting prompts and filling ‘em as soon as you can! There’s a holiday weekend coming up for you in the States – put it to good use. ARRRRRR!

-Your Esteemed (And Likely Drunken) Mods

ETA: If pirategasm is your preferred dock of choice, head over yon to do the same!

Hey, this is cool! (One suggestion: Announce at some or all of the Norrington comms?)

My wishes:

1. Sparrington, post OST. (Because, you know, a little hand-wavey around certain events and OST is the perfect sequel to CotBP. AWE and DMC never happened!)

2. Sparrington, with a pineapple. Or several.

3. James's first time ever on a ship. When would that have been, and why? What did he think and how did he feel about it?

If you know of any or are a member at any where an announcement hasn't already been made, feel free to spread the news!

Copy-pasting to rnotc :-)

Can't believe I forgot to do this earlier!

About #3, have you ever read the Young Jack Sparrow books?

I haven't! Should I?

I'm recovering from my last Amazon binge, thinking ahead to my next...

(#3 was James, though. Is he in the books?)

I enjoyed the whole series but you should at least read Pirates of the Caribbean: Jack Sparrow #10: Sins of the Father by Rob Kidd. James is only in this book but it's entirely about Jack and James and their fathers. The working title was plural in both senses. I also do a thorough summary here:

^ All I'm getting is 'Access Denied', accompanied by that silly goat pic.

"Bringing a kid like that into battle seems like a very wise decision now, does it not?"

A valid point...

Hey just to let you know! Another Amazon binge hath occurred, and the first 2 books are on their way. (May as well read them in order, eh? I will work up to #10 and look forward to it!) I'll read your review after I read the book(s), to stay spoiler free.

Thank you so much!
