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.
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.
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”.
… I learned something awesome today
i did not know this. nor did i catch this at all. i shall now commence a potc rewatch.
This is so fucking powerful. It shows how someone can be suicidal right in front of everyone and everyone’s too blind to see the truth, let alone try to help.
Oh my fuck , this is one of the best photo’s I will ever see
The amount of notes on this makes me sick. No one should ever be called ugly, everyone is beautiful in their own way. For every person that retweets this after me, you’re beautiful.
No one, and I mean no one deserves this.
don’t care if your a bieber, hipster, one direction, kardashian, janoskian blog. you all need to watch this and reblog it
this video deserves a billion notes so please stop scrolling, watch and reblog !
This should be on every blog. No one deserves this. I seriously cried, breaks my heart this goes on
If you don’t reblog this, you have no heart. NO ONE should have to go through extreme bullying
): what the FUCK is wrong with the world. every single one of my followers should reblog this.
This hits so close to home. That boy was only 11 when he took his life. I can’t imagine losing my 11-year-old brother that way. It’s just so awful.
i just balled. this is really ridiculous. no one deserves to be treated like that. everyone has a purpose. theres no reason that someone should think that they can treat someone like that. EVERYONE BETTER REBLOG THIS!
This gave me chills. Never, in a million years, Will bullying ever by acceptable. Ever.
