I have just finished watching Pirates 3. I had four immediate thoughts.
Thought One: If I ever get married, which I don't actually want to, that's exactly how I want it to happen.
Thought Two: Here's one obvious problem with the ending.( Collapse )
Thought Three: Oh, and there's another obvious problem with the ending, that's less about Will in the future and more about Elizabeth in the less distant future. But I think I know how she'll solve it.( Collapse )
Thought Four: So they spent an entire day having sex on a beach without getting any sand on themselves or their clothing. How?
...I wonder if there's good Calypso fic out there.
So now that I've written two fics, my review of the trilogy: fun if you're very good at suspending your disbelief, with a rare three-way sword fight that manages to be worth Elizabeth's embarrassing behavior at the same time. But between an unconvincing and not at all engaging central love story, and a distinct lack of female characters with a purpose other than to give the men around them an obvious motivation, I don't think it calls to me as a new fandom I must join.
And Jack is rather like the Doctor anyway, so that's redundant.
And now I've just made myself ship Jack/Black Pearl.
Edit some months later: fixed the second fic to no longer go back and forth between tenses in a confusing manner. Told you I needed a beta.
