Author has written 1 story for Pirates of the Caribbean.

Gender: Female

Age: Old enough to be on this site!

Fandoms that I enjoy:

Pirates of the Caribbean-

I am a self-proclaimed Norrington fangirl (notice I say Norrington, not Scruffington. I very much like the wig. :) Beckett is another favorite character because he is so sarcastically funny! He is one of my favorite villains).

Harry Potter-

Sometimes. I don't mean to incite its enormous fan-base, but a lot of the main characters annoy me. :( Some of the villains are cool, though, and I do enjoy the plot to an extent.

Star Wars-

But only Episodes IV-VI because Anakin is annoying. Which is a pity, because Obi-Wan is rather attractive in Episode III. ;)

Anything by Barbara Kingsolver-

An incredible author. The Poisonwood Bible is not the only book she has written!

Pairings:

For the most part, I like to stay with canon pairings. However, any pairing that is well-written can be good. :)

Fandoms I write:

Well, I have written a single POTC oneshot, and constructive criticism is very very welcome. I plan to continue to write for that fandom, as it is the only one which is currently inspiring me. I am working on a multiple-chaptered story now, but it may take me quite a while to post anything, seeing as I am rather busy currently.

Art:

I have an account on DeviantArt, if you are interested in that sort of thing. I will be posting my writing there as well, along with artwork: http://www.waterrising.deviantart.com/

Bitterly Ever After by The Dork of York reviews
Stella Bell was a witch and a bastard, striving for gentility on Tortuga. James Norrington was an angry drunkard desirous of revenge. Both were bitter as bile, and certainly didn't expect to be friends. Funny ol' world, innit? NorringtonOC

Nothing by Captain Sarah Sparrow reviews
Barbossa contemplates. Takes place right before the first scene of Curse of the Black Pearl. Drabble. Rated for a couple mild, what might possibly be considered as curse words.

The former Commodore had not been thinking when he sought out the services of one of Tortuga's many jezebels, the rum having diluted his mind as well as loosened his tongue. An unconventional Whorrington.

The Admiral by Meddow reviews
A commissioned officer is not a common sight on Tortuga, so the mysterious drunk wearing a tatty uniform causes a stir. Especially with the crowd at The Jolly Cripple.
