‘no, a resolute and unyielding need.’ Followed by an extremely deep, painful sigh
Inspired by this potc confession, relatively newfound knowledge, and over 14 years of bitter fandom complaining . . .
I noticed awhile ago that Elizabeth Swann was not in fact left alone on some random beach, far away from the pirate life, as is commonly believed. If one looks closely at the land formations in the background, the shore where she and Will took their leave of each other is actually none other than Shipwreck Island!
Now, it’s not 100% clear if the coast in the post-credits epilogue is also supposed to be the same island (the volcanic crater that forms the cove can’t be seen), but they look quite similar, and it could very well be.
So there you have it - our beloved Pirate King was in her rightful domain all along! Hopefully this should put to rest any doubts as to her occupation during those ten years.

HI ALL! I’m Maya. And, although I have been on Tumblr for a fortnight or so, I realized a while back I never introduced myself properly. And, after deliberating on this matter for a while and consulting with my mutual @roonilwazlibweasley on it, I decided to make a proper introductory post. (Well, it’s better late than never, isn’t it?)

About my blog:
Title: Vive Ut Vivas (Which means ‘Live that you may live’, in other words, ‘make the most of life’)
Original and reblogged posts concerning the aforementioned fandoms and ships (Includes fanfiction, fanart, GIFs, incorrect quotes, memes, headcanons and so on).
Occassionally, original prose and poetry.
Jokes and memes on a variety of topics (though nothing offensive, I assure you) (mostly reblogs)
Posts expressing support or raising awareness (mostly reblogs)
Tag games (I love them!)
And, random stuff, I guess.
Also, you can view the masterlist of my original works here.
At present, my ask box is open but owing to academic pressure, I don’t think I will be accepting any requests or prompts for writing fanfics. I may accept them in the future. I’m sorry for the same but at the same time, I am really open to interacting with you all about the above fandoms and ships.
Also, my blog is a safe space for everyone, irrespective of your colour, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation etc. (Though I would recommend my blog only for people who are at least 13 years old.)
And, please DNI and DNF if:
you are looking for 18+ stuff, and/or,
you are prejudiced against a person or people on the basis of their colour, ethnicity, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation.
Anyways, that’s all I have got to say about myself and my blog.
Goodbye y’all until the next time we meet. Stay safe! Stay happy! Buh-bye! :D
speaking of my rewatch, my criticisms are the same so far
(unintentionally took a break because i’ve reached vane’s horrible backstory/arc. i didn’t realize it was so early in the show.)
i don’t understand why the show gave so little to its black characters and never had other characters of color (with speaking roles........joji i’m sorry dude) in a PIRATE show. when so much of the show focuses on wanting a paradise away from the oppression of the empire, it’s odd to me that there aren’t any abolitionists until season 3 with madi and the marooners.
can’t believe potc did more for characters of color than black sails. plus jack was actually antislavery. if the mouse hadn’t interfered, we could have gotten a better story about pirates in the caribbean. i don’t mind the fantasy part but there was a lot of harping for j*hnny d*pp’ and his take on j*ck sp*rrow so we lost a lot there.
Day 13: Coins
Pairing: Jack Sparrow x Original Female Character (Julia Gemheart) Warnings: None Summary: Jack's compass is off the shits again. This time, he figures out the reason why. Word count: 1K
Up the stairs and out of the pub, dodging pirates and patrons who flung themselves from the second floor. They barely made it out, Jack taking his time to swap hats with a few brutish men. On their ways out, Julia caught a glimpse of them tossing out Norrington.
"Smug bastard he was!" Julia snickered, letting go of Jack's hand and tossing his compass up and down in victory. The captain, who was much taller, snatched it mid air and grinned down at her playfully.
"This is mine, but thank you for tryin', love." He giggled as she pouted and jumped at him, grabbing at his hand to get the compass. They played a game of keep away until they neared the docks, where the two finally settled into comfortable silence.
"Captain Sparrow!" A boy called, causing Julia and Jack to turn to the voice. Someone was approaching quickly, but the pirates kept moving.
"Come to join me crew, lad? Welcome aboard." Jack greeted, not caring for who or what this boy wanted. He wanted to talk with Julia more. Alone, he would've preferred. Maybe in his cabin, with the aid of rum. Lots of it, too.
"I'm here to find the man I love."
Both Jack and Julia glanced at each other in shock. "I'm deeply flattered, son, but my first and only love is the sea." And Julia, he added silently to himself. He barely recognized the thought before it passed through his mind.
"Meaning William Turner, Captain Sparrow." The boy said.
Julia and Jack spun on their heels. "Elizabeth!" Julia cheered, running over to her friend and giving her a hug. "Hey! Look at you, you look amazing!"
"Hide the rum." Jack told Gibbs, who obediently took the bottle clutched in Jack's hand and went aboard. He turned back to the two girls, smiling charmingly at Elizabeth. "These clothes do not flatter you. It should be a dress or nothing. I happen to have no dress in my cabin." He flirted.
Jack saw a twitch of red creep onto Julia's cheeks. "Jack. I know Will came to find you. Where is he?" Elizabeth demanded, smiling at Julia. They had become fast friends the last time the pirates had met, being to only two girls on the ship. Jack would often fear what they were saying about him behind his back.
Jack shared a look with Julia, frowning. "Darling, I am truly unhappy to have to tell you this, but...Through an unfortunate series of circumstances, that have nothing to do with me, poor Will has been press-ganged into Davy Jones's crew..."
At that moment, their attention was snatched to the man currently spilling his lunch over the edge of the docks. James Norrington. "Oh, please." He scoffed, "The captain of the Flying Dutchman?"
"You look...awful." Julia observed, sneering and moving closer to Jack. The pirate himself felt like his heart would leap out of his chest. "What are you even doing here? Last time I checked, we didn't need another drunk."
"Your captain hired me, pretty." Norrington growled back. Jack glared and put his arm protectively in front of Julia. "Can't help it if his standards are lax." He spat.
"Leave the woman out of this, Commodore." Jack snapped. Norrington glared before keeping his mouth shut. Jack couldn't help himself to one last comment. "You smell funny!"
"Jack!" Elizabeth growled, getting a confused grunt in response. "All I want is to find Will."
"Well..." Jack started, only to have Julia grab his arm. He looked over at her excited face, a small smile creeping onto his lips.
"Jack, your compass!! Elizabeth, are you sure you want to find Will?" the pirate lass said, guiding the compass from Jack's hand into her own.
"Of course?" Elizabeth answered indifferently.
"So you wouldn't want to find a way of saving him? Because we just might be on the same page!!" Julia clasped the compass into Elizabeth's palm. "Theres this chest-"
"Oh dear." Commodore grumbled, only to get smacked in the back of the head by Jack.
Julia smiled gratefully at the pirate. "A chest of unknown size and origin...That contains the still beating heart of Davy Jones."
"And whoever possesses that chest," Jack cut in, "possesses the leverage to command Jones to do whatever it is he or she wants."
"Including getting Will back." Julia smiled.
"You don't actually believe them, do you?" Norrington demanded, "Its a drunk and a loon!"
"HEY!" Julia snarled, ready to fire herself at James. But Jack held her back, just barely. Elizabeth gave the Commodore a nasty look before sighing.
"I'm guessing this compass is how we find it?" Elizabeth held up the compass Julia had handed her a moment ago. "Whats so unique about a compass? It doesn't even point north..."
" 'Unique' here having the meaning of 'broken'." Norrington growled. Julia turned to him, fire igniting her usually calm blue eyes.
"I mean it. Shut up or I'll let you join your bile with the sharks." She growled. Jack found himself oddly excited at the threat. James responded with turning to vomit over the edge.
"Where does it point?" Elizabeth asked, flipping open the lid.
"To what you want most in this world." Jack answered simply, only to see Julia's eyes widen and her cheeks turn redder.
"Jack...Are you telling the truth?" A question uttered into the night, by Julia or Elizabeth he didn't know. All he knew to say was one sentence.
"Every word, love." He looked over Elizabeth's shoulder to watch the compass spin and whirl. Julia slowly retreated onto the pearl, blushing terribly as the compass finally came to a stop. Right out onto the ocean. "Mr. Gibbs!"
"Cap'n?" Gibbs responded, ever the loyal crew member.
"We have our heading!" Jack announced, climbing aboard. He heard Gibbs sigh thankfully before going off to bark orders. He and Julia made eye contact from across the boat, the female smiling, almost lovingly at him before disappearing below deck.
Pairing: Jack Sparrow x Original Female Character (Julia Gemheart) Warnings: Bar fights, suggestive comments Summary: Jack's compass is off the shits again. This time, he figures out the reason why. Word count: 635 (I do not own POTC, nor its character or GIFS) Chapters: 1
"I know what I want...I know what I want..." Jack chanted, eyes closed and praying as he flipped the lid. The compass hand spun once, then settled to its normal pacing in front of him. He sneered, slamming the lid closed before looking up.
Julia Gemheart, the only girl on his crew, was dancing atop the table closest to him. She was singing some sort of sea shanty, her boots thumping against the dull wood. Her golden brown hair flowed gracefully down her shoulders and back, her sapphire eyes sparkling. Jack peeked at his compass to confirm that, yes, it was pointing to her.
"How we going?" He slurred, deciding to ignore the compass and his aching heart for a moment. Julia finished the song and stopped, dropping onto the edge as a crew mate brought her a rum.
"Includin' those four, that gives us..." Gibbs sarcastically counted in his head, "four." Jack barely heard him, back to playing with his compass in order to get it to work. The captain shook it violently, clearly peeved by its eagerness to break.
But deep in his heart, he knew it was far from broken. "Hey Jack!"
"Julia!" He jumped in surprise as the golden skinned girl slid up next to him. She was practically laying on him, if it weren't for the chair separating them.
He arms rested on his shoulders, "Whatcha doing?" She asked curiously, resting her cheek on top of his head. Jack ignored the thumping in his chest as he shook the compass.
"Bleeding thing won't work!" He cursed, slamming the lid shut. "It keeps pointing...Off course." He quickly lied as he turned to her. "Here! You try!"
She rolled her gorgeous blue eyes and took to compass. she opened the lid and frowned, grumbling drunkenly as the rum took over. "Its broken." "You to!?" Jack squeaked in astonishment. "Wheres it pointin', love?"
"Its pointing at-"
"-Chased a man across the seven seas..." A mysterious voice interrupted her, catching the attention of the two pirates. Their heads swiveled to the man speaking with Gibbs. "The pursuit costed me my crew, my commission, and my life."
"Holy shit, is that James Norrington?" Julia whispered, retracting herself from Jack slowly. The captain nodded absently, already aching for her touch.
"Commodore?" Gibbs asked quietly.
"Not any more! Weren't you listening?" Norrington snapped, leaning down to point in Gibbs face. Julia was already backing towards the door, clutching Jack's compass tightly. She gave him a nod, he gave a nod back. No moving...Not yet. "I..I nearly had you all off Tripoli.." Jack reached over and slid a plant in front of his face. "I would have, if not for the hurricane."
"Lord!" Gibbs cursed, "You didn't try to sail through it?"
"Do I make your crew or not?" Norrington snarled, "You haven't said where you're going...Somewhere nice?!" He flipped the table, sending it, and Gibbs, onto the floor. Julia watched as Jack snuck out from behind, hidden none to masterfully behind a plant. "Am I worthy enough to serve under Captain Jack Sparrow?"
Gun. There was suddenly a gun, and it was pointed at Jack. "Or should I just kill you now?"
After a small game of cat and mouse, Jack grinned. "You're hired!" He cheered.
"Sorry...Old habits and all that." Julia rushed forward, grabbing Norrington by the arm as he pulled the trigger. The shot rang out into the air, hit a chandelier, and somewhere close by a bottle exploded.
"JACK RUN!!" The blue eyed girl yelled as all hell broke loose. Bottles were being thrown, as well as fists. Jack rounded about, barely dodging a fighting couple in his attempt to get to Julia. He grabbed her hand and turned to Gibbs.
"Time to go?" He asked them.
