Author has written 16 stories for Pirates of the Caribbean, Northanger Abbey, Titanic, Last of the Mohicans, and Gone with the Wind.

I've changed my name, and so decided to change my profile. It was rather long and tediously worded, anyway.

As you can see, my obsessions include Pirates of the Caribbean, the Golden Age of Sail, and unlikely couples. Including, but not limited to, of course. I write more over at LJ (commodore_lydia speaking, by the way), but I wanted to archive myself somewhere else, as well, so I'm dusting off the old ff.net account. It's pretty safe to say any series are dead unless otherwise noted. And I'm really much better at talking about fictional characters than myself.

Lydia Recommends:

Firstborn - OneShot, Post-AWE. Angsty, and tragic, but ultimately hopeful - Elizabeth and her son struggle to come to terms with burdens, promises and inheritances in the wake of the events of At World's End. James Norrington's legacy, however, may never be resolved, only passed on - to William James Turner, called Jamie.
