dwgm: Kimi Birds (Jack - FTW! by Sepira)
Those of you who have been members of the Black Pearl Sails Yahoo Group are already familiar with some of the wonderful PotC artwork [livejournal.com profile] ladymouse2 has produced for us for the last four years, but now, for the first time, she has given us permission to host all her Pirates illustration art and cartoons at Black Pearl Tales, the archive website for Black Pearl Sails and Black Pearl Library. I am just thrilled that so many more of you will be able to see and enjoy her work!

Her latest piece is an illustration for [livejournal.com profile] florencia7's recent drabble, Marred Elegance (one of her series of stories that features Jack, Elizabeth, and their son, Blaxton) and holy cats, it's adorable!

Links to Marred Elegance and [livejournal.com profile] ladymouse2's artwork are on the home page of

Most of my flist has read [livejournal.com profile] piratemistress's Dear Jack, but if you missed it, as I did until this morning, go read! It's post-AWE in epistolary form, superb in all its details, funny, and heartbreaking, and perfect. So much love!

[livejournal.com profile] piratemistress is a wonderful writer, and here is a list of all the PotC she's written.

Recs pages are a great way to find the best stories. Check out the recs page [livejournal.com profile] fried_flamingo posted -- which is where I found Dear Jack. Also, I've added a few new stories to the J/E recs page that [livejournal.com profile] hereswith and I compile.

A final note: the drabble challenge of the week at [livejournal.com profile] blackpearlsails is "I should have...", and we've gotten over a dozen entries so far, and such wonderful ones, too! Thanks to all who have participated, and if you haven't, get to work! Only a hundred words! You can doooo eeeet!!

And now, I have to get ready to go to lunch and the opera (Othello) in L.A. Happy Sunday, all!

1) Watched Napoleon Dynamite FINALLY, this evening. I really liked it, much to [livejournal.com profile] gingersnapps dismay. Guess you had to be there. Made the icon for [livejournal.com profile] weemonkey6 -- it's her favorite quote.

2) I like Daniel Day Lewis, but Johnny should have won. There's a cute article under the picture at right...

Speaking of JD, [livejournal.com profile] depp_daily has had so many amazing and amusing picspams this week -- certainly brightens my day!

3) We've had a spectacular number of wonderful drabbles posted to Black Pearl Sails (the Yahoo Group) and [livejournal.com profile] blackpearlsails this week for the 'Inch' theme! Many thanks to all who participated! A new drabble challenge will be posted tomorrow.

Good Night, All!

And the Drabble Theme of the Week is...


Black Pearl TalesSince it was established in September of 2003, the Black Pearl Sails Yahoo Group has been having a weekly Drabble Challenge, and our members have come through with many great works over the years. As Drabblemistress [livejournal.com profile] trinityday tells us...

Drabbles are 100 word stories. Well, mostly they are. We tend not to worry about trifling things such as word count, not if it gets in the way of a good story.

The drabble challenge runs Wednesday to Wednesday, but see the above rules if you get inspired by one of the previous topics, listed at Black Pearl Tales. All responses are also archived on that site, so please make a note if you do *NOT* want your story there.

All of you are invited to write a drabble on the theme of the week. Please leave a comment on this post with a link to your drabble, or you can put your drabble in a separate post on [livejournal.com profile] blackpearlsails. Remember to keep to the code -- Black Pearl Sails is non-slash and has a rating limit of soft-R. It's amazing what you can do within those parameters, a fact to which our drabble archive will attest.

It's only a hundred words -- you can do it!

The 15minuteficlet word of the day is... )

Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] hereswith for the quick edit!

BTW, I wrote this using Writely, Google's new web-based word processor, and I'm liking it more and more -- many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] viva_gloria for the heads up on that. I went to the html screen, and voilĂ ! there's all the mark up -- rather more coding than I would've put in, but still, it worked, and very conveniently. I use three different computers to write with on a regular basis, and Writely allows me to use any of them without worrying about copying or emailing the files.

Oh, and one other thing: I've been updating Black Pearl Tales with lots more fanart and reference sources for writers. I'm adding more stories, too, some of the latest ones that are spoilery for DMC (although I expect we don't need to worry about spoilers so much any more). Check it out if you get a chance!
