it was a nice enough fic, good plot, good style, but it lacked passion, and the characters are a bit shallow, especially jack is ..not sparkly enough
Really enjoyed this - good character-driven plot. I could really see Norrington and Jack talking and reacting the way they do.
I'm working my way through Sparrington and enjoying it greatly, this story especially! I LOVE your Norrington! The asides about carousing sailors and his seconds are particularly telling and delightful.
Great story :) Tried to review while logged in but it appeared to be impossible.
Thank you for the wonderful story! It's perfect, or so it seems to me now that I've finished reading it. Such a fine balance of plot, poetry, characterisation, and introspection! Wonderful, really wonderful. Thank you!
WOW!!! you really knocked my socks off. Or at least you would have, if I was wearing any. Your writing is syperb, you have beautiful imagery, and you have captured the characters essence. You stay very well within all necc. boundaries, and I honestly appluade your talent. Not many fanfic can go as far as yours. Its truly remarkable!! Kindest regards and greatest hopes for more,
I must honestly say that this was the funniest, saddest and most extraordinary piece of Sparrington I ever read.
Oh. That was just amazing. Really, truly amazing. You are a very gifted author. This story was so perfectly worded, and evoked such vivid and vital images that I am left feeling as though I lived through it vicariously, and had not simply observed it as a neutral party. This is lovely. Just absolutely lovely.
I get the feeling that you really understand the Sparrington pairing. I have read some excellent stories, and I'm new to the fandom, but I think I have not read one where the characterisations were simultaneously so flawless. This is just amazing.
I know this story is probably quite old, but I hope you get this review. I thought your sexy scenes were very sexy. That first kiss... guh. Guh, I tell you. And the bit on the cabinets. Oh, I hope that Jack isn't too promiscuous. I know he really liked James. I love it. I really do.
Have you written anything else? I would love to know about it. If you have, and would like to tell me about it, please email me at livethroughthis @ gmail.com. Without the spaces, of course.
Thank you for writing such a thoughtful, beautiful story. I enjoyed it very much.
In character, funny, and well rounded. I can't wait to read the rest.
I don't read a lot of PotC fic, but a friend recced this. I loved it! First pov is not always an easy pov to write, or to read, but in this case it was as perfect as it gets. Norrington's voice was incredible, as was Jack's. And I loved all the small details about life in the Caribbean that gave this fic such body. Loved it!
