  2. Summary

    The collected adventures of Lady Lavinia Montrose, erstwhile wife to Sir James Montrose, banker and baronet, red-head, femme fatale, some-time spy and intelligencer, and seductress.

    She makes her first appearance in Noli Me Tangere, which takes place in the 1770s -- I have attempted to arrange the episodes in a somewhat chronological order, though they can all be read separately.

    Summary

    It starts off as a joke between them. An actual marriage isn't on the cards, not really, and they're certainly having plenty fun without it. But then his letters come, with all his grief scrawled out in the pages, and somehow it's not really that much of a joke anymore at all..

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Evocative language, a real eye for detail, and an OC who's so well formed I don't actually care that there's only a brief flash of canon characters in the middle.

    Summary

    AU - Jack Sparrow did not escape the vengeance of the Maria Silenciosa, but neither was the Trident of Poseidon found...

    It is 1756. Bereaved young widow Theresa Maria de Barrós takes what she thinks is the prosaic step of joining her sister on Saint-Martin. Fleeing the memory of the dead man in her past, however, does not prepare her for the war being waged between the living and the dead in her future - or for the part she now has to play...

    Summary

    In disgrace with the Admiralty after offering mercy to Jack Sparrow, James Norrington finds himself shuffled off to the New England coast with a task equal parts boring and undesirable: act as a deterrent to foreign interference, and bolster customs officials' half-hearted attempts to crack down on rampant smuggling. No one in Boston is happy about this - least of all Nellie Treat, hanging onto her late husband's less-than-legal business and her own good name by her very fingernails.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The soft, slightly homesick Liebgott we all need.
