Fortune and Favor by Firesignwriter

The Pearl is no more; Sparrow & Anamaria fall into Norrington's hands: what will he do with them? Jack's internal monologue is very believable, and Firesignwriter ably captures the complexities of Norrington's character. I'm not sure that the sequels quite match the power of the original, but they're also worth a look: Shorn continues Jack's story, while Days of Firsts & Nights of Lasts by Ladybee follow Anamaria

'The Swordsmith and the Pirate: A Romance of the Spanish Main', by Elizabeth Turner by Gloria Mundi

'So... my wife has been writing carnal romances with ne'er a woman in sight.' With a premise like this, what's not to like? Best of all, Brancher has written a beautifully characterised and very witty sequel, Happy Endings

[Added 17/12/2003; Humour; 1000-2500; Pirates of the Caribbean; Characters: Elizabeth Swann, Will Turner, Anamaria, Jack Sparrow]
