Summary: Elizabeth thinks about the men in her life.
Notes: Thanks very much to [livejournal.com profile] hazelhawthorne and [livejournal.com profile] misskass for looking this over for me!

I'm not quite sure whether I like this version of Elizabeth or not. Possibly I've attempted to inject too much realism into what is, after all, 'a Pirate Movie.' :D

It occurs to me that my HP friends may be slightly bemused by my recent emphasis on PotC fanfic.

I've been pretty much exclusively a HP fanfic reader for . . . mm, about three and a half years now.

I've only had a LJ for about one year, as before that I did an awful lot of lurking and drifting about as my tastes shifted.

And one of the first things I noticed about LJ was that it pinned me down, anchored me in place, in a way I wasn't used to. When you've got to keep up on reading your flist, you not only have a lot less time for cruising around randomly and exploring archives and such, you have a lot less motive, because there is of course so much good stuff on your flist why would you need to go anywhere else? And this is obviously both a good thing and a bad thing.

And I'm not saying I haven't ventured out of my little corner of LJ in the past year, either, because I have, and I've followed links from my flist and on and on.

But not a fraction of what I used to.

So at the moment I'm going through a 'bored with HP' phase, feeling boxed in and stagnant, but I've gone through those before, and this wonderfully (terrifyingly) huge fandom has always managed to have something new to grab my attention. This won't last. I'm certain of that. No other fandom could be what HP is, a place where you can find absolutely everything you ever thought about plus tons of stuff you'd never dream up in a million years. Harry Potter fandom is home. But I'm off on a side trip, to a delightful little world of pirates and swashbuckling, and I must beg all of your indulgence for my OT posts.
