I LOVE THIS! This whole story is brilliant. Barbossa's always been a sexy beast, but oh my god! And the arguments crack me up because they remind me of my husband and his own headstrong southern beast, rofl! Whole thing was brilliantly written and the characters were realistic. Terrific read!

This. This. THIS IS PURE HILARITY.
OH THE INNUENDO, THE DELICIOUS INNUENDO.
AND THE URST, OH THE URST. You, my friend, are absolutely AMAZING. Your writing is all incredibly in-character (apart from the occasional HILARIOUS ooc moment), your stories are all captivating, Barbossa is one very sexy beast and... I JUST LOVE YOU.
You have one more faithful follower/worshiper/devout fan.

Very hot, very steamy, very awesome. Nuff said.

I am always in search of well-written Barbossa fanfics (there's just *not* enough), and these snippets certainly fit the bill. I love all the innuendo weaved throughout the chapters, and his conversations with his...ahem...member was priceless! You have picqued my curiosity, and I'll be checking out some of your other stories.
I looked at your profile, and I really liked your statement about being frustrated when someone favorites you, your stories, puts your stories on alert - but then you *never* get a review. I'd just like to say A-FREAKIN-MEN!
I've got a couple pirate stories (nothing yet about Barbossa, but I am working on one), and I have quite a few Potter ones, if you'd like to check out my profile. :)

Oo-o-oh, this chapter is so steamy, my hair got all frizzy as I was reading it! :)
I think you have a definite gift of explaining and describing emotions and motivation, as well as painting an engaging thought process. I've enjoyed a great deal to observe Barbossa's gears turn. You’ve shown definite goodness in him, yet he is still VERY MUCH a pirate.
As always, an excellent work on clever innuendos and naughty sentences.
"More was at stake here than just bedding a wench, and while pouncing on her like a randy feline from the docks might be the fastest way to get some pussy, (God knew it worked for those pier cats!) it was unlikely to score any long lasting points with her if he were to flip her over, bite her neck and shag her from behind…"
A million-dollar paragraph, period.
I only have one grievance: this chapter ends right in the most interesting place and there is no chapter 7! ;) You best post it quick, otherwise there shall be mutiny! :P

| Suzanne chapter 6 . 6/28/2010
I love your story.
Can't wait for more!

Oh my god!
I thought this chapter was gonna be the ultimate Barbossa smutt fest, but I digress, it was awesome. I was shocked to see you updated but super happy. Hope it's not another few months before I get to read the next chapter. Its too good of a story.

Oh, dear. What do I say?
The conversation between Barbossa's conscience and his, um, other parts was masterful. That chapter had me giggling shamelessly.
How many sea faring innuendoes did you find for that episode? I was quite beside myself about a quarter of the way through - "Oh, but how he wanted to navigate south, with the determined way his compass was now pointing north." "Firing all guns and breeching her hull is not a good idea!"
And then: "Fuck!" he swore under his breath in frustration.
Exactly! Just grab the wench and f…
This was hilarious, but at the same time managed to be quite touching. The ending line was lovely. Subtle and sweet. It made me feel really pleased for the two of them. I liked how you kept drawing parallels between May and the type of wench Barbossa usually beds, showing how different and special this really was.
Is this the end, or can we look forward to more wickedness?

You know, I love this series (you know I do, anyway) and each chapter dutifully reminds me why. The inner conversations between Master Barbossa and... Master Barbossa Jr. :P are pants-pissingly hilarious, and the occasional jab by his conscience adding a third voice makes things very interesting indeed - and the plays on words are just delightful ("It's carpe diem and you should stow your carp for a bit longer!" :D). Not to mention that every now and then, "man, beast and conscience" are genuinely touched by May's innocence and willingness and genuine love, which makes things much more complicated (for a first time) but oh so much more interesting :o)
Also, I love that for all the steamy lust and the delightful euphemisms, this is "just" the build-up, and you leave what happens between man and woman when the masks fall and the banter is over to the readers (admittedly quite filthy :D) imagination. It's like, after showing us a window into Barbossa's soul (and sexual turmoil) you leave the two lovers and respect their privacy, and that's kind of very classy :o]
I love this series, really. And I hope to read some more :o)

Roflmao! Funny chapter, especially at the end where he was arguing with his other self. "Woman mine!" Roflmao *puts that down in book of memorable quotes*
| ChaosandMayhem chapter 5 . 9/8/2009
Ah, the ever-epic battle between a man and his makings. :D
BARBOSSA ROCKS! But I don't plan on stealing him from you any time soon...
I love the inner struggle between our dear Hector between making sure his lady love is alright and controlling his natural urge to rip her bodice off!
"No? ‘No!’ 'But the woman…'‘Never ye mind just now!’ 'Fine.' It retreated to pout."
My day just got a thousand times better thanks to that!
Let's hope that second half isn't too far behind!
| FreedomOftheSeas chapter 5 . 9/5/2009
This whole chapter was incredibly well done, heart stopping and sexy at the same time!
The beginning, when you go in depth with the scene with Stoker, was utterly amazing. I love all the thoughts that run through Barbossa's mind. About him loving her, then quickly turning into jealously with his thoughts on Bellamy, then finally realizing that it was farthest from the truth, and that May was indeed in trouble.
"Furious that anyone would dare hurt her, and feeling overwhelmed with the need to protect her as Stoker sliced open the bodice of her dress, something very dark and primitive reared up within him, snarling ‘woman mine!’ as his hand went instinctively to his dagger."
How amazing that Barbossa is sometimes 3 I think that this is still one of my favorite scenes. He did so much to save May and just the realization of his feelings for her really brings it all together nicely.
I have to say, I'm immensely proud of you for writing a scene about Barbossa conversing with his penis.
*imagines Turk cringing from that word*
Lol! But no, I think you've done a wonderful job at just capturing the male mind, it's incredibly appropriate for the moment at hand and very well done!
"Long moments crept by, and after he’d finished his tale and was still hearing a lot of rustling behind the screen, he began drumming his nails on the table.
What the fuck was she doing back there?"
I couldn't help but laugh at his frustration! Bloody privacy screen! Who needs one of those anyway!
I believe this is one of my favorite chapters so far :) More? Yes?

I am entirely too flattered than I should be to take the blame for this lovely and pants-pissing-funny bit of conversation :D I adore this. It reminded me somehow of the best bits in the "Austin Powers" films, and I mean it as a compliment (since I've heard a bunch of people dismiss those movies as silly and vulgar and useless).
"Is she ready?
“Yes,” Madeline said, bracing herself for the bite of the needle.
‘Not for that! For suturin’!
Suturin? the disappointed reply came."
I LOVE it. Really I do. I could hear the voices in my head :D Poor man just needs a good shag, that's all ;)
Really I just love seeing Barbossa squirm and try to hide the mighty beast raising its head like any teenage boy who has yet to learn how to make "it" behave in polite society. For a moment, though, the treacherous thought sneaked into my mind that after the events of "A Single Night of May" Barbossa's fantasies may be less... let's say wild and unbridled... But I quickly shook that thought off, because not only will he have *concrete* memories to dwell on, he also will be salivatin' at the thought of what they should be doin' next! I know I would.
...Too much info there, yes? :D
Thanks for sharing Barbossa's fantasies and predicament with us!
