"Voldemort Umbridge Potter, you were named after the two worst people I know because frankly you annoy the shit out of me"
Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk. After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl.
Jack Sparrow just got way cooler.
Yo, this is why Norrington said he’s the “worst pirate I’ve ever heard of,” and then Jack followed it up with, “But you have heard of me.”
Because Jack was branded a Pirate because he freed people rather than stealing anything. So Norrington, with his sense of duty, knows that Jack has been branded a criminal for actively not being a terrible human being. Norrington is torn between his duty as a naval officer and knowing that Jack is right.
He freed exactly 100 people, that’s why his debt to Jones was 100 souls. Davy has a sick sense of irony after all. Jack freed 100 souls and as a consequence his ship got sunk. Now his ship has been raised and as a consequence, he has to enslave 100 souls. This explains his reluctance to actually pay back the debt.
Crap, the latter portion of this franchise was a lot smarter than I thought it was…
There’s so much people don’t get about this franchise, the story is really more complex than just “funny drunken pirate meets hottie lady and hottie man with occasional visits from squid man”.
REMEMBER THAT PART IN THE ODYSSEY WHEN ODYSEUS TOLD POLYTHEMUS THE CYCLOPS HIS NAME WAS NOBODY AND THEN HE STABBED HIM IN THE EYE WITH A GIANT STICK AND HE STARTED SCREAMING AND THE OTHER CYCLOPS YELLED FROM THEIR CAVES AND ASKED WHAT WAS GOING ON AND POLYTHEMUS SAID THAT NOBODY HAS HURT HIM AND THEY WERE LIKE WELL THEN SHUT THE FUCK UP
Boy we’d better go check on Princess Anna’s corpse or something
While we’re at it we should probably get some legal proof from Hans that he was married to her and stuff
Also we should make sure that there aren’t any cousins who might have a stronger claim to Arendelle’s throne than this complete stranger
Yes, we should probably do these things
I have a hole where my heart should be, she thought, and nowhere else to go. “I’m strong. As strong as you.”
Brienne turned, and saw a ghost. Renly. No hammerblow to the heart could have felled her half so hard.
What I love about this is that it’s the ‘real’ Sherlock, and while he hasn’t hidden who he really is from John in the past, this is when he’s really ADMITTING for the first time, not just telling. He’s not telling John he’s a high functioning sociopath, he’s not telling him he’s a consulting detective, he’s telling John that the man he’s chosen as his best friend is really just a junkie who has changed his drug from cocaine to action, and that is just…
too much for me. No more Mr. Detective, just Sherlock. In this scene, to me, he’s admitting to John for the first time ever that he is human. Because he’s not indestructible, he’s not unbreakable, he’s just a human who is really really good at pretending to be.
