I think you captured the characters quite well. Nice choice and venue of the meeting giving him a little pep talk if unintended. The tall tale angle is good as well.

Haha, I loved this. A tale well told. ;-)

aren't you gonna tell the story of him meeting morpheus?
| Raven Aorla chapter 1 . 9/7/2009
You've got them both down to a T. I love it.

Well I want to hear about the time when Jack met Dream. *pout* No, even better he might have met Delirium 'cause that would explain quite alot actually..

| Meltha chapter 1 . 2/19/2008
This was great fun, and I can really imagine the two of them interacting like this.

YES! Finally someone else who's read Sandman! And put it to such good use too... My compliments. it's smoothly paced, well-written, and clever. If anyone could meet Death and escape unscathed it would be Captain Sparrow, though I think he'd get along wonderfully with Delirium as well. They'd go so well together, both being whatever they want to be... My only complaint is that there are a few too many references to his betrayal. There are only so many times you can use the phrase 'treacherous first mate' without it sounding forced. Other than that, I love it. Did you know your story was referenced in Film Fantasy Magazine? They ran a 'Pirates' edition, with a blurb on fanfics, and yours was listed as their top choice for a crossover fic, that was how I found it. Anyway, good writing!

Oh that made me laugh so much. You have Jack'S voice down pat. I could hear it in my head while I was reading.
For some annoying reason though Death's voice sounded a but like Kyra's, especially when she asks him: Are you not Jack Sparrow?
But that is no fault of yours.
What really makes it though is the end, with skeptical Will opening his big mouth.
And Jack Sparrow and Dream, maybe THAT is why he is all wo adn weird. Loved it.

I wonder if Neil Gaiman had any idea how useful he was making himself to crossover writers when he came up with the Endless. Somehow, they manage to fit just about any fandom - particularly in the hands of a writer such as you.
That said, I do have one slight quibble. You said a couple days ago that you'd be more comfortable if my story was longer. I, for one, would be more comfortable if some of your sentences were shorter. In particular, the line about Death's eyes could stand to have a few adjectives pruned from it. But that's a little thing.

I don't know what to say.
Honestly, I have read this, and it is taking me more than a few moments to decide what I want to say about it. It's incredible - you're a very witty writer, and you know how to keep Gaiman and Sparrow perfectly accurate and balanced.
More than that (though it goes hand in hand with excellent character writing) is the way you write conversation! It has such a flow to it that it's all too easy to find yourself completely caught up until you are deposited at the end of the tale, one fable richer.

Got here via addicted_to_gay. I really enjoyed this - good character voices, works well with Jack's story and personal mythology. Thanks for posting it.

What a fabulous story! Wonderfully original, witty and Jack is perfectly in character. Well done!
