Cleaning up after the mess that is PotC 5 *UPDATED*
Ok so I was thinking about how they completely screwed the lore up for Jack Sparrow, so I’m gonna have a go at piecing together his origin story, among other things. Please poke holes/ tell me where I’m wrong because I want to get this refined.
Problem: Jack’s compass was bartered from Tia Dalma, but in 5 he got it from a crewman. Solution: Jack did, in fact, get the compass from the crewman but later lost it at sea when Beckett sank the Pearl. It came to Tia Dalma (Calypso) who recognised its power and Jack had to later barter it from her to retrieve it.
Problem: the Wicked Wench was shown as a pirate ship, but Jack worked for the navy (’people aren’t cargo’ scene). Solution: The Wench was a pirate ship when she was under control of the previous captain seen in 5, but when he died and she became Jack’s ship, Jack decides to join the navy and work under Beckett (he was still very young + not yet branded and probably saw it as the best thing to do). When Beckett asked Jack to ship slaves, he liberated them, got branded, etc. and the ship sank. This explains the pirate flag in 5 and also the problem of ‘Why would Beckett sink a navy ship just to get back at Jack?’ Jack goes on to make a deal with Davy Jones and you know the rest.
UPDATED Problem: Jack is a gallant hero and very intelligent, so why was he ‘drunk’ the whole time? This one really pisses me off personally Solution: it’s been however-many years since Jack has been on sea, as we saw in one of the scenes the thing he desires most is to sail again, so it could be excused that he wishes to drown his sorrows 24/7, considering he’s no longer a ‘wanted’ or famous pirate, he doesn’t have a ship or much of a crew and his friends aren’t in contact with him. *ALSO Angelica has the voodoo doll of Jack, as seen at the end of 4. This could be the reason for his misfortune and *ahem* strange behaviour. Thank you to the person who suggested this to me!
Problem: Why does Will Turner have barnacle-face when we know that this only happens to those who do not fulfil their duty (i.e. Davy Jones)? Solution: Will did not have barnacle-face up until that point. It could be assumed he was doing his job well and then noticed Henry was drowning and stopped ferrying the dead in order to save him, i.e. as soon as he ‘crossed-over’ he gained the barnacles. This would explain why Will only had a few barnacles and not ‘transformed’ like Jones.
Problem: Why is Elizabeth in a dress and corset when the whole point of the first movie was freeing her from it? AARGH I hate this one aswell, completely undermines Elizabeth. Oh well. Solution: Elizabeth felt it necessary to return to civilization to raise Henry, she did not want him involved in piracy for his own good and therefore didn’t talk about Jack. At the time, a woman such as Elizabeth would have been known in civilized culture as ‘governor’s daughter’ rather than ‘pirate king’, so she has to live up to this name in order to be accepted in that society (remember we’re talking 18th century here). She doesn’t have her husband, Jack or even mentor!Barbossa to help ‘free her’ from these expectations
EDITED Problem: When, in the time between being cursed, dead, looking for Jack, joining the navy and controlling the ocean did Barbossa have time to have a wife and child? Solution: After the events of AWE, he had Smyth as a wife, who later became pregnant and died in childbirth, afraid that Carina would be worse off as a pirate girl, and, of course, out of a sense of his merciful nature caring dad!Barbossa left Carina at the orphanage. Barbossa then joins the navy. (thanks to everyone who pointed out my mistake)
Please bear in mind that I am not defending Pirates 5, just trying to clean up the mess. Add your thoughts and drink up me hearties, yo ho! ( @dhiatzs )
So I just wanted to do a sketch of the “WHATISUPEVERYBODY” intro but wHOOPS my hand slipped and I did a fully rendered collection of Sanders Sides
I was feeling a little sheepish at first about drawing fan art of a real person but then I kind of thought to myself, well, Thomas isn’t embarrassed about what he likes! He would just want me to have fun!! So I did!
I also sort of accidentally came up with non-Disney theme songs for each of them. At least, it was what I listened to when I worked on each of them, and I kind of think they themselves would listen to these songs?
Logic: Oh No! by Marina and the Diamonds (I know exactly why I walk and talk like a machine~~)
Morality: Fireworks by Katy Perry (Mostly because my own dad has recently discovered Katy Perry and is being… very Dad about it, but also because I feel like Morality would believe in me. And imagining him singing along in a dad voice gave me a hearty chuckle.)
Princey: Born This Way by Lady Gaga, (What would a prince listen to if not a queen???)
Anxiety: Pity Party by Melanie Martinez, (cuz you can’t spell party without art. And I can cry if I want to.)
And then I feel weird assigning a theme song to a real person cuz at least the other four are fictional representations, but when I did @thatsthat24 himself I was listening to A Little Opera Goes A Long Way by Sky Sailing
Restaurant Dates Are The Worst (Tom Hiddleston x Reader)
A/N: This is an adaptation of the Sebastian Stan version of RDATW (a very faithful adaptation, almost word for word except it’s written in third person and ot second). It’s for a dear friend of mine (me heartie @bathshebaa who has the hots for Tom Hiddleston *wink* *wink*)
around her, scrutinizing the surroundings, letting her eyes wander on
the walls, the chandeliers, the dark-red faux velvet chairs next to
the bar section of the restaurant – she looked anywhere but at the
man sitting across from her, ungracefully shoving his spaghetti into
his mouth all the while twaddling.
