Poor jack! I've always preferred him over William. Not that William is bad, I guess I like a more tortured soul
Can't wait to read the next one!

I really liked this story! It went so well with the scenes from DMC and the added scenes in the story were fantastic. Now to watch AWE before reading Penance.

"She had hoped, once Jack was gone, all of those memories would disappear with him, dissipating like wisps of smoke over an extinguished campfire"
Lovely metaphors, and such a sad thought. You captured the despair of Jack's death well in this chapter. I can see Elizabeth is affected by everything they ever said to each other coming back to haunt her, now that it's over.
I look forward to reading the third installment when I have time :)

"... my murderer ...
See you in Hell!"
I love the mixed emotions at the end of it all, the love for her as well as the anger he must be feeling that she left him to die. I like the way you described the last stand against the Kraken.

Amazing! You've put so much thought into where to insert thoughts and reminders of things that happened in Rum and Persuasion, turning nearly every line said into something else, secretly.
I don't think I'll be able to watch that scene ever again without thinking of this.
I'm impressed as always with your ability to create an interesting story.

"and though she smiled sweetly up at him, there was a hint of shark in that flash of teeth."
Hm, we're seeing that part of Lizzie coming through quite nicely.
""Whilst you're dreamin', you have a tendency to talk in your sleep ."
That would certainly not be good if she were to talk about such things once married... or in the presence of anyone else.
I love the way Jack is toying with her mind in this chapter, in reference to her dreams and to both of their memories.
| Pirate-on-Fleet-Street chapter 4 . 3/29/2011
Oh my goodness. I'm surprised Jack could even flee the cabin at the end of the chapter! I suppose this won't be his last chance, hopefully.
It was sweet though, him tucking her in :)
There's something so poetic about the way he reads into her dreams, recalling memories and watching her sleep.
| Pirate-on-Fleet-Street chapter 3 . 3/29/2011
Interesting. I love the way you've manipulated the thoughts behind each of the lines in this scene. It's like I'm hearing of these things for the first time, even though I've watched it over and over. Adding the past to this present scene completely changes everything around. I found myself even hoping the compass would point to him.
""By finding the chest of Davy Jones," he said firmly and persuasively, knowing that the correct phrasing had to be used, for this to work."
That must have been hard for him, convincing her she wanted something other than himself.

"And her lovely dream wedding officially became a nightmare ..."
An excellent choice of scenes for the prologue, in my opinion. I see she chose to forget that night then :( I'm expecting she'll be remembering it sometime soon?
It's nice to be returning to this, I realize I've missed your writing :)

Absolutely marvelous! I loved the flashbacks and the undercurrent of feelings between them! I'm really looking forward to reading the next installment.
Again, thank you for such wonderful work, you are a true talent!
