Icons!

I hope this isn't considered off-topic...it does feature Norrington (a bit unusual, though).

There is this nifty deck of Pirates of the Caribbean playing cards that you can win if you beat Bootstrap Bill at WARRRR! (as in the card-game, "War") at the Pirates of the Caribbean official site. The only way to win the full deck is to beat the game 100 times (according to the gauge on the sidebar, anyway). Since this game is based on sheer luck, its very random if you will win the deck or not. I didn't, so I don't have the full deck (*sob*). However, as you go along, you win wallpapers with the major suits on them, and that's what I've made icons of. :)

Just as an FYI to those who might try their hand at the card game: according to a few forum posts I encountered while trying to find the deck a different way (yeah, I'm a cheat), I discovered that apparently the link you get if you win (to a .pdf file) doesn't work, so it seems impossible now to get the full deck. This game was based off of "The Curse of the Black Pearl," so its old, and I guess it makes sense that the file wouldn't be hosted any longer, but you'd think they'd warn of that or take the game down. I played for quite a long time before I found out that vital piece of info.

Anyway, the people featured on the cards are the actual characters from the movie--including Norrington! I thought the cards were quite artistic, so I decided to share them here. I hope you enjoy! This is my first real batch of icons, so be gentle. xposted to rnotc_and_eitc and norrington_love.

Oh yeah, I think its interesting to note that icons 11 & 12 are dressed and posed identically, except one is Elizabeth and the other is (to me) Death. Does that mean Elizabeth is Death? *snort* I'm sure there are certain men who would agree that she is indeed. Also, I know that I have the same image labeled as both Gillette and Groves; this is because that character is a generic Lieutenant, and I just wanted to make both names available for the boys' various fans, if that makes sense. :)

Edit: for my own amusment, I made the Elizabeth Death Icons. :)
