willelizabeth is an LJ community for fans of Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) - and more importantly, their relationship - from the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie trilogy.
Will/Elizabeth: This is a Will/Elizabeth relationship community, hence the name. It's not a community about Will or Elizabeth and it's not a general POTC comm. As such, the focus here should be on Will and Elizabeth's relationship with each other. Fics and/or discussion that pair Will with another character (eg Ana Maria/Will) or Elizabeth with another character (eg Jack/Elizabeth, Norrington/Elizabeth) aren't appropriate for this comm. Any such posts will be deleted without warning.
Other 'ships: Despite the fact that this community is for Will/Elizabeth 'shippers, this does NOT mean that other 'ships are allowed to be 'bashed'. So there are Will/Elizabeth fans here who also like Jack/Elizabeth? Big deal. To each their own. No bashing of other 'ships.
Flaming: No flaming - let's try and keep this all fun, please?
Discussion on Orlando & Keira: Discussion on the actors is to be kept to a bare minimum. Topics such as how much chemistry they have in these movies and with each other as Will & Elizabeth are acceptable; talking about their roles in other productions are not acceptable... UNLESS it pertains in some way to POTC and/or Will and/or Elizabeth. (e.g. Making a comparison of how Keira portrayed a certain element as Elizabeth as opposed to Guinevere in King Arthur). Discussion about their private lives is STRICTLY FORBIDDEN.
Community/Website promo: Posts promoting fan websites (such as the new A Touch of Destiny) are allowed and encouraged - we have little enough web presence for this 'ship as it is! (This also goes for fanfiction archives and other sites which have a direct W/E slant or are POTC-oriented.) Posts promoting other LJ comms are not allowed (I can suggest community_promo for that), as are websites/message boards for roleplaying and the like. Posts such as these will be deleted.
Images: Pics (fanart, other graphics, promo photos etc) are more than welcome, but if you include more than one per post, please use an LJ-cut.
Icons: Similarly, icon posting is very much encouraged however if you have more than about 5 in a post, please LJ-cut the post and/or provide a link to where the icons are available.
Spoilers: Not everyone has seen At World's End just yet so please be mindful of others and post anything relating to the 3rd movie behind an LJ-cut. This goes for tiny snippets in the middle of a script review too... if it's spoiler-ish, please put it behind a cut. Curse of the Black Pearl and Dead Man's Chest have been available long enough that these are fair game and anything relating to these two movies does not need to be considered a spoiler.
Fanfiction: Fic is DEFINITELY welcome. If you've got some W/E fic (be it from the first or second movie or post-AWE), please post! Post the header (title, author name, etc) first, but please LJ-cut the rest of the story... it makes it easier to read than having to scroll for ages and ages. :) An idea of the type of information to include in your header should be things like:
Title: Author: Email: Rating: Summary:
Anything else you'd like to include in the header is entirely up to you. :)
Tags: We have a set of generic tags now to use when posting entries. Please try to remember to use these - it makes it easier in locating certain posts further down the track (especially if they happen to be links to fanfiction or fanvids). You can find the full list here (alternatively, they are always at the bottom of the left-hand column of the main page of the community).
