Not gonna lie: I have never cried/ screamed/ sworn louder in my entire life than when Will Turner was forced to leave Elizabeth at the end of At World’s End. 

I’ve done a very in- depth meta about this before, but the way they wrote The Flying Dutchman in the movies, “the ship must always have a captain”, but the ship itself only became what it was because of Calypso (who is back). So if she’s back, it’s sorta superfluous, and is not in fact actually needed. 

Plus, the ship itself CAN be destroyed. I did a fuckton of digging back in 2007, and I discovered that YES, the ship COULD be destroyed. I actually began a conversation with one of the writers on myspace that got me blocked back in 2008 (I was a feisty lil’ twelve- year- old), because I pointed out the huge plot hole that if there is no Dutchman, it doesn’t need a captain… It’s true, and it’s a recognized hole in the story. But I pushed it a bit far I guess (again, I was twelve) and proceeded to get my ass blocked by Terry Rossio. A+++, self.

The simplest loophole to this whole conundrum was to just destroy the Dutchman. 

It was Calypso’s job- according to the films- which, after she was bound to human form, passed to DJ, who failed to do the job.

I was 11/12 years old and I had so many problems with the ending of AWE, that it actually consumed my every waking moment for like three years. I was just so fucked up over it.

And then On Stranger Tides came out and destroyed the franchise, so… Idk. I just don’t even know.

Though Dead Men Tell No Tales actually looks fucking AWESOME! I just hope it’s a little bit more well- thought- out than AWE. 

Still blocked. Still a plot hole. 

I can’t even watch Dead Man’s Chest or At World’s End anymore. They were so messy *cringe emoji*

I did a lyric thing for Davy Jones’ theme. Enjoy!

Cruel and cold like winds on the sea
Will you ever return to me
Hear my voice sing with the tide
My love will never die

Over waves and deep in the blue
I will give up my heart for you
Ten long years I’ll wait to go by
My love will never die

Come, my love, be one with the sea
Rule with me for eternity
Drown all dreams so mercilessly
And leave their souls to me

Play the song you sang long ago
And wherever the storm may blow
You will find the key to my heart
We’ll never be apart

Wild and strong you can’t be contained
Never bound nor ever chained
Wounds you caused will never mend
And you will never end

Cruel and cold like winds on the sea
will you ever return to me
Hear my voice sing with the tide
Our love will never die

You will listen to me! LISTEN! The other ships will still be looking to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead, and what will they see? Frightened bilgerats aboard a derelict ship? No, no they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see, they will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!
