Hello, friends ... arrr, ahoy, etc.
It's been awhile since anyone has posted here, but I hope people are still checking. I'm new to the community, LJ, and Peter Pan fanfiction in general. Currently, I'm working on an as-yet untitled Hook-centric fic with an OFC who is Wendy Darling's great-granddaughter.

In summary: Emma Flynn boards the Jolly Roger to rescue her sister and finds herself taken captive instead. If she agrees to help Captain Hook defeat Peter Pan and take control of Neverland, he will let her go ... but as she grows accustomed to life on the pirate ship, she is not so sure she wants to leave.

I invite you to visit my LJ and see what I've written so far:

chapter one

chapter two

chapter three


Of course, all feedback is enormously appreciated. Cheers!  -cp

I need your help!

Have a few minutes to answer a few questions?

Want to help me in some Peter Pan-related research?

Want to be credited in the bibliography of a college term paper? :-)


Thanks a lot!

Hook at Eton--or--the Ravings of a Mad Fanchild
So I finally gave in, I finally did it. I created the community for my second favorite novel of all time (nothing beats out a Little Princess, sorry). Check it out, and I hope I spelled everything properly. I recommend the book over the audio reading of it, however closely they match. Read it first, then listen--if you have the luxury of choosing, that is.

hook_at_eton


I really, really recommend Capt. Hook: Tales of a Notorious Youth, people. I know I rave about it incessently, but you know what? I'm going to keep on raving. I'll rave until I am physically incapable of writing or typing. Until you read it. Until it is KNOWN--because it truly deserves the attention.

Sorry if I sound kinda angry...it's frustrating when you are the only reader you know.

Now that the pimping is over....

Hello! I discovered this community by inputting Hook in the interests search (ja I know, sooooo clever XD). I was ecstatic even as I smacked my forehead at my obliviousness. A community full of Hook'philes! Delightful! Well this post is my intro, so here is my intro....

I was born. I grew up. On December 22, 2005, I finally had jaw surgery that I had found out I needed a year before. I lost fifteen pounds, ten of them the first week of recovery. I endured. I survived. I dreamed of my favorite food (still do). Now where am I? Two weeks from chewing (the magical six week mark!) and finding friends and communities at a rate of one a week (I spend a huge amount of time on lj). All in all I am very happy right now, as this surgery is a milestone for my life really having a chance to start.

I'm a writer and artist, as well as a singer, of some talent, and I enjoy fanfiction more than original work, I have found. Even the original work I read has that writing style that fanfic coined (Anita Blake, anyone?). Among my favorite books are the Holmes pastiche Enter the Lion, the Neverland pastiche mentioned above, and the Spiderwick Chronicles. I like a rich setting for my characters, with a huge amount of world detail that is never all told to me by the author (now in a separate book...). The people of Weta Workshop have impressed me greatly by doing this with Skull Island, and I have always enjoyed the world of Star Wars, even if the movies don't interest me. In short, I LOVE CREATURES AND CULTURES! I love microcosms, like J.V. Hart's Eton, I love macrocosms, like George Lucas' galaxy, I love alternate Earths, like Laurell K. Hamilton's Earth and White Wolf's new World of Darkness. I lean toward the dark or the complex in writing, and at the moment I am working on a Fae supplement for the new WoD (no not officially, just as a self-made supplement as my friends and I are unsatisfied with Changeling being taken from the WoD mythos), as well as weaving my version of the Fair Folk into my Harry Potter, Nightmare before Christmas, Wonderland, Labyrinth and Neverland fanfic-verses, as well as working it into an original world.

"Remember, its the second star to the right, unless you wish to court madness." - This quote was something I said in an RPG over a year ago, and is the summary of one of my theories--Wonderland and Neverland are connected both by sky and water. In the game the Wonderland we were using was from American McGee, but the theory could serve either Carroll's or McGee's version, as well as Disney's (I have a special place in my heart for all three).

I hope this writer's long post doesn't intimidate anyone...^_^;;

An intro and some fanart
Aloha!

I'm Jules, and I just found this community today while googling the phrase "blue as the forget me not"--I think that's what I googled.

I've been half in love with James Hook since my college days when I first truly started to understand JM Barrie's Peter Pan. Seeing him portrayed by Jason Isaacs--even if I didn't agree with a lot of the writers' and director's decisions in the 2003 movie--brought it all back to me.

I have always championed Jas., my favorite not wholly unheroic villain. So I was thrilled when, a few weeks ago, I found the novelization of his younger days, which I'm sure you're all familiar with. I appreciated that story much more than I did the movie. Like the mod here, I'm kind of a Barrie purist, but I also feel that this new story not only captures the spirit of the original Peter Pan (while also speaking to a modern audience,) but it expands on it, and gives Jas. Hook a fair chance at his own story. I fell in love with the novel.

So, in the spirit of Halloween, I didn't want to show up empty handed. Today (after I cleaned house,) I was pretty bore, so I decided to color a sketch that I did yesterday. It was kind of fun, and I colored it in two different ways. Each file is about 98 kb, so if you have dial-up, you might want to run the other way.

First try:Collapse )

I felt the colors looked washed out, his eyes didn't look right, and his hair was too whispy. Everything ever written about James Hook has made the point, repeatedly, that he had really thick hair.

Then I doodled with it some more, and came up with this one:Collapse )

I darkened it up and added the stars. I highlighted the Lyra constellation because it is significant in JV Hart's novel, although I think it might have been cheesy of me to point it out like that. I wonder if anyone might have gotten it otherwise, though.

Also, I added the red in his eyes, though I don't think you can see it.

I still can't draw pants and probably will never be able to. Also, the guillotine looks like something out of an Escher painting. Sad to say, that was not my intention. I just have no sense of space or perspective.

Oh, the scene is when he's baiting Arthur Darling to follow him during their duel, and then leads him to the guillotine. I won't give away what happens next, but I know that I didn't capture the scene at all. James is out of his mind in this one scene and totally enjoying it. In my drawing he is far too calm. I meant for him to be beckoning his opponent to follow him, but instead it looks like he's just pointing to the sky. I guess that's all right, but it wasn't my intention.

As for his clothes, I just didn't know what to do. From what I could remember of the story (and I could have checked, but I didn't, sorry,) he would still be wearing the clothes he filched from the sailor, which I imagined were pretty plain. Plus I just didn't want to dress him like an Eton boy. Too complicated. ^_^

That guillotine is really messed up, isn't it? But I don't think I can fix it without messing up something else.

It's nice to meet fellow Jas. Hook fans. Happy Halloween, everyone!

Hi There. I just wanted to let people know that I'm writing a Hook fanfic, which for the first part focuses on an original fictional character. This character, Eleanor, is a friend of Wendy's. Wendy has grown up and has children of her own, but has told many stories of Neverland, Peter Pan, and Captain Hook. Eleanor is whisked away to Neverland, and finds that what she wished for is not at all what she really wants. But, as she meets up with Captain Hook, she may discover a common interest which will cause them to work together.

It's on my LiveJournal. Title: Escaping Neverland: Link to chapter one: http://www.livejournal.com/users/roberta_grundy/304.html#cutid1 Chapter Two: http://www.livejournal.com/users/roberta_grundy/1808.html#cutid1
Chapter Three: http://www.livejournal.com/users/roberta_grundy/2303.html#cutid1 It's a work in progress, but I'll try to speed up in posting progress. Also, does anyone know of a Hook fanfic archive that isn't AFF.net, rather an archive specifically for Hook and/or Isaacs characters fanfic?

A Reading List for the Curious Mind
(Forgive me if I've already spammed you with this - it just delights me.) Some of you might have seen the 5 question interview meme going around again. As one of my questions posed to the_alchemist:

5. *wracks brains* Hook! I should ask you something about Hook! Hmmmmm . . . we know that he keeps a well-thumbed thesaurus in his cabin. Would you care to speculate on the other books that line his shelves?

She replied:

Of course. It's not a matter of speculation - his shipboard library catalogue is in the collections of Cambridge University Library. Of course there was only a small amount of room on board the Jolly Roger for books (and for the sake of brevity I'm excluding the volumes on navigation and astronomy that were essential to his work) - it is thought that he had a more comprehensive library elsewhere.

LITERATURE
- Barrie, J.M., The Boy Castaways of Blacklake Island
- Cleland, John, Fanny Hill; or, Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure
- Housman, A.E., A Shropshire Lad; Last Poems; More Poems and Additional Poems
- Milton, John, Paradise Lost
- Nabokov, Vladimir, Lolita*
- Potter, Beatrix, The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle
- Sade, Marquis de, 120 Days of Sodom
- Shakespeare, William, Complete Works (Richard III is particularly well thumbed...)
- Sophocles, Oedipus Tyrannus and Other Plays
- Strachey, Lytton, Ermintrude and Esmeralda

NON-FICTION
- Baden-Powell, Robert, Scouting for Boys
- Benson, A.C., Fasti Etonienses
- Creasy, Edward S., Memoirs of eminent Etonians: with notices of the early history of Eton College
- Debrett's Peerage and Baronetage
- Fortescue, Adrian, and O’Connell, J.B., Ceremonies of the Roman Rite Described
- Johns, Flying Officer W.E., The Modern Boy's Book of Pirates
- Krafft-Ebing, Richard Von, Psychopathia Sexualis
- Machiavelli, Nicholo, The Prince




* It is a matter of much speculation what this volume was doing there, having been published many decades after the Captain was thought to have died.

New fanfiction
*waves shyly* Hello... I just thought I'd say a little something about the fanfic I just started posting. It's a Hook/OFC story, just to warn anyone who isn't into that type of thing, and it's called "Sailing from Neverland". It's complete, I'm just doing a final edit and posting chapters as I finish formating them correctly.

Also... since I know the author of "The Storyteller" is a member of this group... I love your story. I've been reading pieces of it as I have time.

Storyteller, Chapter 2
This is the second chapter of a story of mine that I've been working on for some time. Its genesis comes about from the stellar performace of Jason Isaacs in the recent 2003 movie.

Details:

Summary --> Set after the events in the 2003 movie, we find that while the form of Captain Hook is gone, his presence reminds. And Wendy, as the Storyteller, continues to tell her stories. Very much a Hook and Wendy sort of interaction, rather than a Peter and Wendy one - though there will be some of both throughout the entire story.

Comments and critiques (particularly of style or plot) are very much appreciated.

And my continued apologies to those who don't care for creative writing with their Jas. Hook.(as infathomable as that sentiment may be to some of us).

Pan pipes and harpsichords . . .
I was listening to a lovely piece of music just now - La Fenêtre by Yann Tiersen which features an intricate harpsichord section - and was reminded of Hook (and also for those French speakers among you, the window where the whole mess began).

Just curious, but what music do you hear that brings our wonderful villain to mind? Or any other part of Peter Pan?

(Yes I realize I run my mouth an awful lot on here. I can't seem to help it . . .)

Edited To Add: I mean any music, contemporary, baroque, sea chanties, whathaveyou. I think the piece I mentioned was a little misleading - yes it does have a harpsichord in it, but it's contemporary music. Yann Tiersen was behind the score for Amélie and has played with The Divine Comedy. Didn't mean to confuse anyone there . . .

Wow, hi. I've never posted here, and am a bit nervous, so I hope that I don't sound like some pretencious little 14 year old fangirl (if there are any 14 year olds, I apologise), cause I'm not. Ahem.

Anyway, assuming all of you own the Peter Pan DVD, has anyone noticed any missing scenes? A freind mentioned missing a part on the Pirate ship where Wendy says "What would my mother think about me becoming a pirate?" and that's where it cuts on the DVD. In the Theatres, she remembers Hook asking if Wendy remembers her mother, and she replies "of course I-" and the scene endes, triggering the whole thing in the tree with the "who is your mother/who is your father" thing.

I personally don't know if it was cut, I've been too preoccupied with stuff to watch. I would be very sad indeed if this were the case, and I missed time with Jason Issacs as Hook.

Anyway, I hope this isn't too terribly off topic, and if it is just get ahold of me personally, I'll delete the entry poste haste.

Posted without comment
From the front page of The Sun, a story about a well know soap star, who has apparently been caught in some kind of webcam sex scandal:

Later on he started undressing, thrusting his manhood at the camera so I could imagine what he would do to me, and pleasuring himself.

He usually did it in his dressing room while he was in panto.

He would have just come off stage and get his willy out while still in costume.

One time, when he was playing Captain Hook, he was just sat there in his wig, playing with himself.

To be honest it was difficult not to laugh. But he took it all very seriously and was very theatrical.


Full story here.

Hello
Hello,

I just joined, chronographia directed me to this place. Captain Hook was my second literary crush (the first was Robin Hood), I was 12 and Peter Pan just annoyed me when I read the book. I have never been a fan of the cartoons, but last years movie went down very well with me. Not surprisingly, when my favourite actor plays my favourite villain.
