Pollywantsa ... a ... a bit of everything, actually...!

Welcome to the profile... although unfortunately you won't find anything of interest on it, except to say that I must enjoy writing, because even when it looks like I have lost the plot or given up on the whole writing fanfiction thing altogether, I always seem to find my way back to it.

And yeah, I know I have some unfinished stories and I am very apologetic about that. I don't do it on purpose and I always have the bestest of intentions, it's just that maybe somebody needs to poke me with a stick now and then... :-) In the meantime, please don't give up on those stories just yet -- I haven't!!

Coda - A Lonely Shore (Black Corsair) by Helen1969 reviews
There were several losses during the events of "The Black Corsair" some harder to bear than others, but even in the darkest hours there is always hope. Set just after the final chapter of "The Black Corsair". (Characters? Ah... that would be telling! But don't let names deceive you - the main focus here is most definitely not an OC!)

Waifs and Strays by Helen1969 reviews
During the time Harlock was looking for Daiba, prior to the events of Corpse Flower, a chance encounter on a distant, dusty world, and a good deed had the usual repercussions. Not only causing a lot of trouble for the Arcadia and her crew, but a serious case of "It followed me home... can I keep it?". This, for those following for the past few years, is how Harlock met "Ben"...

Or: Dias Del Meurto season 2...

Sehnsucht by Helen1969 reviews
After meeting up with his brother and "widow", Harlock's got a lot to think about once he's back on board Arcadia... (CGI 'verse, immediately after "Things Which Are Not", and rated "M" because our hero is in a foul mood, and his language would make a pirate blush...)

CE 2874. The road to hell, they say, is paved with good intentions - but how do you pinpoint the moment when a man's feet take their first step onto that road?
