| E. Darkbow chapter 30 . 2/8
This story is definitely one of my favorites! You did a great job with Barbossa's character and I love the narration style. If you have written a sequel, I'll be reading it as soon as I find it.

I loved this! Your dialogue was incredible, your characters were wonderful. It was believable and oh so very incredible. All around an amazing story.

I'm not usually a fan of romance, but on a whim I decided to click this story. I must say that I am truly impressed! Madeline was a perfectly-made OFC, while not becoming a Mary-sue. Her reactions to the certain events in the story were entirely believable.
And Barbossa; I haven't seen anybody else who writes him as well as you! At times I was convinced that you truly do own the character as you know him so well :0 his reaction to Madeline and their flowering romance was entirely believable as well.
I've been a lurking reader for quite some time, so please forgive me for not reviewing until now. XD

It was lovely to take my time and read this all the way through. I think you have done a truly wonderful job and have written an amazing contribution to the fandom.
By the way, I found this through a TV trope recommendations page, just so you are aware of that.
May favourite part was the "damn" when he saw the back of May's dress. It was just written and sat with me so well. Thankyou for the service.

Hope you can forgive me for not reviewing before now. :) All I can think of to say without writing a book is that this is without a doubt the best story (especially about Captain Barbossa) that I have ever read. I was completely captivated through all 30 chapters, and I can't wait to read more of Madeline's story. You are an excellent writer and storyteller. Never forget that. :)

Well, this was one of the best stories I've ever read, and hands down the best Pirates story. As you've nicely pointed out in the end note, there are a couple of small hints that connect to the films and I find them wonderful.
May is a believable protagonist with a personality that's fun to read about; she's well developed and a person. Barbossa is different enough to believe this is indeed set before the first film, but in character enough for him to fit into the series of films as well as this story. Each of the named pirates have a personality - especially Turk and Bellamy, of course, but even the ones named once or twice had a personality. Not developed, but in regards to their importance to the story, this is to be expected - there are little ticks in their personalities I'm feeling and reading through-out the story, though.
Beyond the excellent characterization there is a good, believable plot that takes place over a time span that is equally believable (May falling in love in three days, for example, would not've been) and excellent writing. The dialogue especially deserves mention; excellently done, and feels appropriate for the setting and in-character to boot (after all, let's be honest; many people can read up on how to write accents and the ways of speaking during certain historical time periods, but little get it correct and fewer keep Barbossa's dialogue both original and in-character).
I tip my hat off to you, and will be off the read the other parts of May's story. (She is a VERY enjoyable protagonist, one I actually find myself caring for. Which is unlikely to be the case with many OC's)

That was awesome.
| Protagonist Of Life chapter 24 . 12/28/2012
Well that's just craptastic! She's gone and made a right mess out of things! Okay so the guy kisses you, and he gets whipped for it, sleeping with him is a great idea! (Sarcasm)

I absolutely loved this story! You are an awesome writer and you really made the characters come to life. Not many fanfic writers can really write love without it seming unreal but you did awesome!
| Cindermist chapter 30 . 3/15/2012
This is an amazing story! There are so few Barbossa stories out there that this is quite refreshing! Keep up the good story writing!
