For [livejournal.com profile] fabu. They just didn't want to have sex today for some reason, so they're playing with pointy things instead.

My Mom and I inaugurated the New Year by renting and watching Pirates of the Caribbean again. Astonishingly enough, this was her idea, not mine (I offered to set the DVD up on my laptop, but she wanted to see it on the TV screen, so we got the video).

Such a fun movie. And you know, the more I see it, the better Jack gets. Unsurprisingly, I spotted bits of Norrington/Jack subtext this time (though I saw nowhere near as much of it as I did of the Jack/Lizzie subtext). However, I still maintain that OT3 is the way to go. That scene at the end, with Will and Elizabeth announcing that their place is between Norrington and Jack, clinches it.

And, thanks to my movie-watching experience, here's another AU snippet.

A Rose by Any Other Name )
Oh joy, oh rapture unforeseen. Everyone was pleased with the presents I gave them, from the items of apparel made out of Irish wool, to the books, to the Irish/Euro 2ยข pieces. My cousin Tyler even liked the Cadbury's Turkish Delight bar, much to my astonishment (I've got to confess, I gave those out largely to see the expressions on my cousins' faces when they bit into them).

And my Grandmother is happy too, because my sister and I were well dressed, attractive, and polite at all of the various relatives' parties, thereby giving her "my grandchildren are better than your grandchildren" bragging rights. The fact that Sarah's at the Air Force Academy now helped (and those who weren't impressed by the Air Force Academy were usually impressed by Ireland--and by Hollins, since, being Virginians, they all knew about Hollins University).

I haven't gotten a chance to watch my PotC DVD yet, as we only got home from Richmond yesterday. I did, however, watch the original Die Hard on tv last night with my family. It kicked ass. Everyone who for some reason has not yet seen it should go rent it now. I especially liked the bit where Bruce Willis is pulling glass out of the bottom of his feet (it's nicely shot, so that you hear the pain in his voice and see it on his face long before the camera pans down to his feet and you realise what he's doing). Also, it has Alan Rickman in it. Playing a German terrorist/thief.

And now, for those of you who don't care what I gave my relatives for Christmas and are only reading this because I promised fic in the title, another PotC AU snippet (the second of the five things bits--the last three will be finished after I re-watch it). Behold as I misquote Marlowe.

But That Was in Another Country, and Besides, the Knave is Dead )

Ack. I am not loving this history paper. If Mike had corporeal form, I would thump him for dragging me into this class. You, seducing me into History of Northern Ireland with your Flyboy sexiness and West Belfast accent! See if I write you any sex! No, no, you're going to be a lonely little pilot with nothing but your Spitfire to keep you company at night.

So, because having something I'm supposed to be working on always makes me very productive at working on
something else, here's an OT3 drabble for [livejournal.com profile] fabu.

In other news, Luke Davenport of Dream Team is going to go for the risky eye surgery to try and fix his vision. His entire career is hanging in the balance, as is Harchester United's shot at the finals. And since I'm going home in a week and will probably never watch Irish TV again after that, I'll never find out what happens to him. Teh Angst! Teh Woe!
Whoohoo! We caught the bastard! *does the dance of jingoistic glee*

Of course, now that we've caught him, we have to figure out what to do with him. And ask ourselves if getting rid of the sonuvabitch was/is really worth the destruction we've visited on the people of Iraq and the American lives lost there.

And in an attempt tp give this post actual fandom content, here's me glomming onto a character meme that made the rounds of the Buffy and OUaTiM fandoms earlier.
My Jack... )

One of a series of five that will eventually be linked up and posted to Pirategasm.

The Quality of Mercy... )

And that has been thirty minutes of research paper avoidance. Thank you, come again.
