So our story is finally over and we'd like to take this opportunity to express our thanks to everyone who read and commented along the way. Your support was greatly appreciated.

However, we hope that this isn't the end or redux_08. There are a great many talented writers in Pirates of the Caribbean fandom, with different perspectives on all three movies, and we would like to open this community in the hopes that its members will post their own stories here.

The community will be all inclusive, meaning that all characters, pairings (both slash and het), categories and kinks will be accepted. Also, in keeping with the Redux theme, we encourage writers to offer their own interpretation of the movies, and give alternatives to what we saw onscreen, however this is by no means the main purpose of the comm.

The rules are pretty simple and based upon common sense. No trolling, no flaming, discussion is encouraged, but please keep it courteous; arguments or barbed comments arising from outside prejudices will not be tolerated. If any of our members come across evidence of any of the above, we would encourage you to let us know about it and we'll try and deal with it in as objective and reasonable manner as possible.

At the moment, membership will be moderated and posting access restricted to members only. We have 26 members just now, however 53 people are watching the community and we would like to encourage those who have friended to apply for full membership. In addition, we'd like to take this opportunity to ask you to pimp redux_08 in your own journals and communities - the more the merrier!

Lastly, I'd like to use this post as a suggestion box; if there's anything you'd like to see on redux_08 then let us know about it. Would you like to see something other than fic here? Do you want meta? Author's Q&A's? Discussion? Feel free to share your ideas!

So now there's nothing left to say apart from 'I declare redux_08 open for business' - get with the posting people!

Whoohoo! So glad to see this comm up and running. The rules and expectations sound extremely reasonable, and redux_08 is a wonderful addition to the LJ POTC fandom. Meta and discussion would fun, I think :-)

Thanks so much for Redux, and for opening the community ♥

ETA: Tried to post Sonata and it looks like you haven't added member's access yet (?)

Membership all sorted. I didn't realise I had to approve and unmoderate posting access for existing members. Duh!

*Squee!* I have SUCH a good feeling about this -- how awesome is it that the two of you are starting a new comm?

Looking forward to enjoying this immensely -- thank you, ladies :)

Thank you so much *hugs*

I know I'm still two comments behind, but I'm planning to do something about that today ;)

BTW, I started writing a Jack/Tia-piece and translated the first few chapters of my Sparrington-fanfic, so I'm glad this comm has opened its gates to het and slash-pairings alike. Truth be told, I wouldn't have dared to post my fic any place else ...

I can't wait to see your stories and we're honoured that you'll be posting here!

I really hope we can build a community where everyone feels comfortable posting their fic :)

Hello! Do you take new affiliates? Because I started a fanfic comm, and it welcomes all fandoms. It is at fanficplace.
