Ack! My list of recs to post has grown ridiculously long whilst real life pummeled me into the ground these past weeks.

In celebration of The Paper being completed, I give you Monsters, by Gloria Mundi. Gen Pirates fic, with a marvelous view into Jack Sparrow's skull as he duels with Barbossa in the cavern. (Ha ha, yes, "skull" = pun intended. I = dork.) Gloria puts into words all the things I was thinking and noting during that scene; Jack's brilliant grasp of exactly where to prod people, the look upon the dying Barbossa's face, the questions of immortality and, perhaps, Will's ultimate choice. Short and deep, not to mention beautiful writing and an eerie mimicry of what I found mysejf thinking during the film.

While sorting out my links today, I found a fic I obviously had meant to rec. ""Binding", by Kanzeyori, is maybe PG at most, and probably G, but there's such a wealth of feeling, of heart and heartache, beneath the short, seemingly simple action the story revolves around. Pirates, and scars, and Will and Elizabeth, with a tad bit of rum.

I'm glad to have rediscovered Kanzeyori-- expect further recs!

Find the story here.

Pirates of the Caribbean, this time! Sleeps With Coyotes was busy while I wasn't looking! "Depth" is not terribly long, but manages to evoke all the right moods, and answer all the questions that bubble up at the end of the movie; after all, if the sea is in one's blood, can you deny it? His vision of the world changed drastically, Will must decide if it can be re-forged, or if he must.
