To Love a Monster
Paring: James Norrington/Jack Sparrow
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: ~22k (this chapter 2.5k)
Beta: the_dala
Genre: Fantasy AU (though, honestly not that much more fantastic than the films). Takes place post Curse of the Black Pearl. While it borrows elements from the other films, it mostly diverges. (Basically, Norrington is a selkie, everything else is pretty standard.)
Summary: Fuck fuck its done go and read it I swear if you don't all those hours I spent researching will come back to you in the form of red traffic lights and slow elevators. A final chase around a sunken city, and an ending (fluff).

To Love a Monster
The Prologue
Paring: James Norrington/Jack Sparrow
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: ~20k (this chapter <2k)
Beta: the_dala
Genre: Fantasy AU (though, honestly not that much more fantastic than the films). Takes place post Curse of the Black Pearl. Though it borrows elements from the other films, it mostly diverges.
Summary: I am not the first to make a mistake, and I doubt so long as my species perseveres, I should not be the last. We are all told the same stories, shown the same examples. We all differ in our choices, though, and that remains our curse. Humanity considers us cursed. They consider not the irony. It is hard when they, the most beautiful things, can be so terrible and curse us in return.

As a selkie, Commodore James Norrington belongs to a world of legendary creatures. Like all of these creatures, he must not fall in love with a mortal - to do so would be to sacrifice his heart in a literal sense, and become the monster he dreads to be. Until, one day while swimming, he spies a mysterious yet familiar shape in the water. The creature is most definitely not human, and for the first time in a long time, Norrington begins to hope.

Beta Wanted

Hello Peeps!

Boy, am I late to the party! (Is there anybody out thereee)

POTC came out before I hit puberty, and it wasn't until I rewatched it recently did the pairing hit me. Um, it hit me quite bad.

So, over the past week I've written 13k of a selkie!Norrington fic (NC-17). It's likely to end up around 15k-17k. I've got it all plotted and laid out; I'm just still filling in the last few gaps and fleshing some plot points out.

Now I'm looking for a beta! Just general stuff mostly, to pick up the glaring errors before I put it up. I would ask my usual beta, but I've been terrible and haven't written it in our mutual fandom.

I hope to be posting the fic in weekly installments from next week (on Ao3) - if you want to help but I've already started posting, please give me a shout because I would still want you.

Cheers!

Anybody out there?

Since I'm new to this community (and Livejournal) I would like to say hello first, so:

hi everybody!

I've been into this fandom for many years but never actually contributed something to it.
It's sad that it seams to vanish more and more over the last years and so finally I decided to become active. Now I'm asking you, if there is anybody out there feeling the same? Then let's try to revive our fandom!
Since (as you may have noticed) I'm no native speaker and therefore probably not the best choice to start this project, I really need your help.
So if you like to share your thoughts on this topic, are searching for a writing partner to exchange and collect ideas for ffs (I know my english isn't the best but I'm working on it), or like to help me to complete and beta some of my own unfinished ffs then leave a comment or send me a message.
I'm counting on you ;)
