Thanks to my beta and good friend Paladin Steelbreaker.
After recovering from the battle, Jack and the crews visited Harry nearly
every day in the Hospital Wing. Some of them had Madame Pomfrey fix teeth
or other things they had been bothered with while they were there. Jack
also spent time with the Headmaster. It was clear to everyone that the two
of them were up to something, but no one knew what. Anamaria had also taken
it upon herself to personally take care of Snape who had gotten wounded in
the leg at the end of the battle. The Potion Master snarled and bit and
hissed and spit, yet she wouldn't give up. They had had some very nice
nights together, and she wasn't going to give up on him when what she was
feeling for him went past lust which was rare for a pirate. Harry would
never let her hear the end of it, but quite frankly she didn't care.
Jacqueline had gotten totally hooked on modern fantasy tales, and when
Hermione had taken her and her family out into London she had bought more
than a dozen of them for the money they had gotten from Isla de Muerta.
Will was eagerly going through history books with his father, and Elizabeth
was listening to Hermione explain all about Freedom of Speech, Human
Rights, and on. Draco just followed them with a small smile and shook his
A few shocking revelations had seen the light of day a day after the war.
Pettigrew had been captured and the story about the Potters death was
finally cleared, along with Sirius Black. It also turned out that Ron
wasn't a traitor, but a spy. He and Dumbledore had agreed on the plan when
Voldemort had approached the red-head at the beginning of the war. Ron had
smiled kindly to Hermione and had wished her and Draco the best of luck in
their relationship, then had gone off to visit Harry in the Hospital Wing.
All this and more Harry was told by his family while he was in a coma. They
would tell him what was going on in the Wizarding world so that he wasn't
completely out of it once he woke up. Harry also got to know his mother and
father while he was there, and Sirius was still his hyperactive self,
though he had no shadows under his eyes and looked younger than when Harry
had last seen him in real life.
Finally came the day that Harry woke up again. He was sitting with his
parents, laughing over a past prank, when he felt a powerful tug.
"It's time to go back, Harry." Lily said and smiled at her son. She stood
up and hugged him. "It was wonderful to meet you."
"Take care son, and make sure to prank Snape once for me." James smiled as
"Do me a favour," Sirius grinned, "and adopt a black Labrador and take it
on your ship. And of course call it Sirius."
"Of course." Harry shook his head, but he would do what Sirius wanted.
Suddenly he found himself in midair and floating away from his parents and
"We're proud of you, Harry!" Lily called after him and waved.
Harry waved as well then felt himself crash into his own body. His eyes
snapped open and he sat up, only to be thrown backwards again by something
big landing on his chest. He looked down and found Jacqueline hugging him.
"'Ello lass." He chuckled and patted her back. "Think ye can let a poor
chap breathe 'ere?"
The girl sat up at once. "Oh, I am so sorry, but it's been almost a week,
and we were so worried and-"
Harry's chuckle cut her off. "Relax and don't hyperventilate. I'm fine.
Where are Jack and the others?"
"Jack's at the Pearl as usual. Anamaria is annoying Professor Snape, though
he isn't protesting too much," she giggled. "The others are just around
trying to figure Hogwarts out."
Harry nodded gratefully and noticed his clothes – CLEAN!!!!!
AAAARRRGGGG!!!! – placed in a chair beside his bed and stood up. Jacqueline
politely went and got a screen so that he could dress in private. When he
was done the two of them walked together towards the Great Hall where
everyone would be sitting and eating lunch. Jacqueline told him all about
what had happened, and Harry listened even if he had heard it all before.
When they entered the room went deadly silent. Then came the cheers and the
clapping. Anamaria, Hermione, Elizabeth, Mrs Weasley and Ginny worked
together and dragged Harry into a group hug. The men shook his hand and
slapped his back. Jacqueline refused to leave his side and smiled up at
Harry throughout the entire ordeal.
"So ye pulled through this as well, Green-Eyes." Jack chuckled and
surprised Harry by hugging him quickly. "Ne'er do that again."
Harry chuckled. "Definitely. No more Dark Lords te get rid of."
Jack laughed and led him off towards the table set off for the pirates.
"Good te 'ave ye back among us. 'Twas gettin' borin' without ye."
The rest of the day was spent with Harry being congratulated and slapped
and congratulated again. The press was there and somehow got the entire
tale out of him, from his first year at Hogwarts 'til now. That alone took
several hours. Then Cornelius Fudge showed up at dinner time and held a
long and boring speech. By the time he was half-way through his speech most
of the pirates were either dozing off or chatting with each other, and
completely ignoring the Minister.
When Fudge finally was done the Order of Merlin, First Class was awarded to
Harry, Jack, Ron, Hermione, Draco and Snape amongst others. A few other
tittles were handed out to other people, and at the end of it all
Dumbledore took the speakers chair.
"Hello everyone!" he called jovially and everyone returned it. "First of
all to get the important thing out of the way. And here it is: anyone care
for a Lemon Drop? No? Well, more for me then!" he popped one of the yellow
sweets – god knows where he had them hidden in his robes – and the audience
"Yer dentist must be a very 'appy man, Albus!" Jack called evoking another
group of chuckles.
"That he is, Captain Sparrow!" Dumbledore replied grinning and his eyes
twinkling. "Now that that is out of the way, I was thinking of doing a long
speech, but I think I'll skip it seeing as several of you – mostly form the
pirate-section – are pointing at me with your guns, daggers, knives or
wands. So other than to say a great thank-you to everyone who fought in the
war, I have nothing to-" he stopped when Bootstrap glared at him.
"Ah yes, I DO have something to say!" everyone rolled their eyes fondly at
this. "Firstly William 'Bootstrap' Turner, Captain of the Stormeagle, is
going to stay in our time with his ship and crew. They are going to be
working as a transporting company, mostly for the findings the Gringotts
Curse Breakers discover, and bring the things back to England. This way the
Curse Breakers themselves don't have to travel the muggle way as everyone
knows that most of the things they find can't come in contact with magical
means of transportation or they will be ruined."
There was polite clapping and the journalists made notes to themselves to
talk to Bootstrap later to get the details of the company.
"Oh, and one more thing!" Dumbledore said. "Bon appetite!"
A second time the tables were filled with the best that the House-Elves had
Harry laughed and talked with the people in the room. Jack was trying to
hit on several witches at the same time, and he was doing very well.
Jacqueline was enjoying being mothered by Mrs Weasley and other women, Will
and Bootstrap were talking to the journalists and Dumbledore was offering
Lemon Drops all around the place.
Hogwarts was back to its normal insanity.
Harry was overseeing the men working on his ship. They were bringing food
and water on board. It had to last them for a while as they would be
appearing close to Isla de Muerta once they got back to the 1600ds.
Jacqueline had refused to stay in this world with her parents, and after
much crying, arguing and promising she was allowed to come with Harry.
Tonks was there was well and was helping the men stock.
Harry rolled his eyes at Jack's name for him. "What is it?!" he yelled
Jack waved him down from the ship. "Need te talk te ye, lad. Get down
Harry didn't bother to reply and just jumped off the ship. "What?"
The pirate smiled at him and led him towards the Forbidden Forest so that
they could have a somewhat private conversation. "I wanted te give ye
somethin' fer yer travels."
"Ye won't be with us?"
"No, the Pearl will take another way, but we'll meet up in Tortuga now and
"Savvy." Harry nodded.
Jack opened his enchanted pocket and drew out his beloved compass. He
looked at it for a second, then put it in Harry's hand. Harry just gaped at
him. "Ye'll need it, and I don't – not anymore. There's somethin' I didn't
tell ye when you woke up that first time in me cabin. That gypsy woman was
goin' te take me soul away if I didn't 'elp ye, and that's how it started.
O'er time I grew te like ye. She gave me Elemental powers so that I could
'elp ye and now that I 'ave those, I don't need it. The wind is whisperin'
the way to me, and the sea is takin' me there gladly. Anyways, the compass
"Bu-but how does it work?" Harry asked. He needed some time to take all of
"Ye think of the treasure ye want to find, or the place ye want te be, and
it'll lead ye there. The compass may not point north, but it points ye
straight to yer destination. Take good care o' it."
"I will." Harry promised and watched as the older man walked away towards
Dumbledore, the Phoenixes and numerous others had showed up when it was
time for the two ships to leave. There were some tearful farewells,
especially between Elizabeth, Jacqueline, Jack and Harry. Anamaria was also
going to stay, to 'annoy the Potion Master' as she put it, though no one
had seen Snape as happy as he was in the past few days. Hermione was trying
hard not to cry, not that it helped, and Draco was holding her hand while
he himself was trying very hard to act like the self-centred bastard he had
been when he had been a student. That didn't work well either. Ron, who had
decided he had had enough of this world and life for a while, had joined
Harry's crew and was getting teased about the fact that he had no bloody
idea what was stem and stern on a ship.
The Headmaster stepped up to Harry before the Pearl and the Raven set sail,
and smiled at the young man. "You truly are a remarkable young man, Harry
Potter-Sparrow." He said then hugged him. "I have something for you."
Dumbledore drew out a ring similar to Jack's form his robes. "Yes, he
finally did tell me about the ring, though I still haven't gotten him to
tell me about the compass. Either way, this is yours. It works in the same
way Jack's does."
Harry grinned and put the ring on. "Thank ye Professor."
"Think nothing of it, it was my pleasure. Come back to visit soon."
Dumbledore looked around, leaned in and whispered: "As soon as things are
in order here, I'm setting sail with Jack for an adventure, so we might
meet each other in Tortuga soon than you think. But don't tell Minerva,
she'll have my head if she knew."
Harry grinned. He couldn't exactly imagine Albus Dumbledore sitting in the
Faithful Bride drinking rum. He grabbed the rope that was thrown down to
him, and the crew heaved and pulled him aboard. He smiled one last time to
the people who had gathered then started yelling out orders. "Weigh anchor!
Set the sails! Man yer posts ye bloody scurvy cads!"
The orders were similar on the Pearl, and soon both ships were sailing away
towards the lake. To the spectators the air over the lake shimmered and the
ships suddenly disappeared into thin air.
Dumbledore turned to them and grinned. "Come on everybody, the students
will be returning tomorrow and there's a lot of work to do."
There were several groans – the loudest coming from Snape – but everyone
did as was suggested. Anamaria smiled happily to herself as she felt
Severus' arm go around her and she leaned into his taller form. Life
couldn't be better!
Harry grinned as he finally came back to the Caribbean in the 1600ds. This
was what he was born for and this was what he wanted to do. Jack and the
Pearl were sailing alongside the Raven, both crews starting up a favourite
"Drink up, me 'earties, yo ho!"
There. The story is done. What do you think?
The sequel will be out soon enough and will be called 'Rings and
Medallions'. Keep a weathered eye out, savvy?
