I made requests of both [livejournal.com profile] honorat and [livejournal.com profile] virgo79, so I guess I need to post this here...

The first five people to comment on this post get to request that I write a ficlet of any pairing/character of their choosing. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level.

Pirates of the Caribbean fandom, of course. ;)

Swiping this from [livejournal.com profile] porridgebird , because it's too good not to share -- let's all join in the fun!

Countdown to PotC: On Stranger Tides.  [livejournal.com profile] corrielle  started this over in [livejournal.com profile] potc_discussion . I hope some (or all!) of you will play too, because I'd like to see your answers!

Quoting her now:

Because I'm so excited about the new movie I can't see straight, I thought I'd engage in some nostalgic, fannish naval navel-gazing in the week leading up to the U.S. premiere. Anyone want to join me? If so, here are the questions I thought we might use...

Day 1. What were your first impressions of PotC back when you first saw CotBP?
Day 2. What's a cool/interesting/favorite piece of pirate/navy/PotC stuff you own?
Day 3. If you make fanworks, link to a piece of your work that you're especially proud of. If you don't make fanworks, link to a piece you're especially proud of finding. ;-)
Day 4. What are your hopes for the new film? What are you most looking forward to?
Day 5. If you could bring one character from the first three movies back for OST, who would you choose? How would you write him or her in?
Day 6. Tell about a favorite/funny/happy memory of your involvement in the PotC fandom.
Day 7. I'm assuming we'll all see the movie somewhere around here… Describe your initial reaction in 100 words or less.

Me again: Read the whole thread here...

ETA: My reply to day 1's question is on [livejournal.com profile] potc_discussion here.

...thanks again to [livejournal.com profile] djarum99 for finding and posting this yesterday, even better than the last one, I'm thinking.

That's better than poetry, right? *g*

Niece [livejournal.com profile] gingersnapps sent this series of cheery doggie pumpkins to me a couple of days ago and I must share it with you...


More in here... )

And our Papillons, Faline and Jack, went to the groomers on Friday and have Halloween bows!



Faline doesn't mind wearing a costume, but Jack gets very depressed when we dress him up.

Here he is in '06, when he was just a baby... )

And here's a repeat of the PotC pumpkins my daughter carved a few years ago, with niece's help...


More in here... )

And finally, [livejournal.com profile] aletheiafelinea suggested starting this Icon Squee Meme again, which was going around back in April of '08. Sounded like a good idea to me!

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of Icon Squee!

Oh dear God, could Johnny Depp really make us love him any more than we already do?! After his Captain Jack Sparrow primary school visit, barely ten days ago, we didn't think it was possible. Only now he's gone and done something just as kind-hearted...

With the British weather taking a turn for the worse this last week, the cast and crew currently working on the Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in Greenwich have been gnashing their teeth against the cold and the rain.

On seeing their plight, 47-year-old Johnny Depp apparently dipped his hand into his own pocket and coughed up £40,000 on new coats to keep everyone warm and dry whilst they were at work. The actor reportedly bought 500 waterproof jackets, priced at £80 each, when the cold snap struck.

"Johnny paid out of his own pocket for all 500 of us to have a nice warm waterproof," an insider told The Sun, "It's a great morale boost and another example of why he is one of the nicest people in Hollywood."

One of the nicest men in Hollywood? Why yes, he is. *sigh* Just what has he got up his piratey sleeve next though? If it involves saving puppies and kittens then that's it, we'll be at the front of the queue banging down his door...

And Keith Richards is confirmed to be reprising his role as Teague.

He just has too much fun with that role. These are from filming last week, and there are more at HeyYouGuys.


More, and somewhat spoilery, under the cut! )

Too much fun!!


From The Telegraph.co.uk...
Nine-year-old Beatrice Delap did just that by writing to Captain Jack Sparrow, star of the Pirates of the Caribbean films. "We are a bunch of budding young pirates. Normally we're a right handful but we're having trouble mutinying against the teachers. We'd love it if you could come and help," she wrote.

To the astonishment of staff at Meridian primary school in Greenwich, south-east London, Captain Jack arrived in the form of Johnny Depp, the actor who plays him. Depp is filming the latest Pirates of the Caribbean instalment at the nearby Old Royal Naval College.

More under the cut, with a YouTube video, and lots of Captain Jack pics from the day before... )

ETA: Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] aletheiafelinea for pointing out these videos and pix...

So sorry I've been neglecting LJ (though I'm up to chapter 7 on the next Harry & the Pirate fic -- whoot!), you all may have seen these already, but just in case you haven't, here goes.

Courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] aletheiafelinea, here are two links to some fabulous and slightly spoilery pix...

Here are new pix of our favorite pirate captain with his new leading lady at Popsugar.com (couldn't lift the pix themselves yet, unfortunately), and there are a few of that castle set and one that I think is from when they were filming in Hawaii under the cut...

Yay Pirates! )

And Glee is on tonight!!! Whoot!! Have I mentioned how I adore that show?

Happy Tuesday, all!
