Um, I think you need to do a little research on your information about how many men the Dauntless could carry. The ships are simply not that big. Several hundred men could live in them, yes. Maybe up to 400-500 if you cram them together for a short voyage. But not 800 or 900.
Especially considering that the voyage Gibbs shared with Norrington was across the Atlantic Ocean. Even if they could somehow cram that many men aboard her, standing room only probably, there would not be enough room for food for all of them. The average ocean voyage across the Atlantic took 2 to 4 months. (Granted, because of wind patterns and water currents, it was/is faster to sail east than west on the Atlantic). There is no way there would be enough room for both the men and food for them for that long.

when I put 'from an unfaithful and wicked lineage' in babel I got "d'une lignée infidèle et mauvaise"
when I put in 'Le lignage desloial et felon!' the results I got were "Chalk-lining desloial and felon!" I think the language may have changed a bit.
aww Andre and Theo are so cute... *giggle_snerk*
“And I insist you call me Theodore. If plied with alcoholic beverages, I might even let you call me Theo.”

"The crew parted respectfully before him to let the Commodore pass"
"Anamaria stared after him, looking like she’d been slapped in the face"
..Would that be The Pearl's crew and Anamaria understanding that James isn't prejudiced.
I'm so glad you made that point about racism and sexism, I often forget that it wasn't so long ago nearly everyone had those views.
Poor Jack he keeps bieng confused.

Sounds like he's been listening to Jack and Gibbs too much.
"Ye was hackin’ left an’ right wi’ yer magic sword an’ cuttin’ through their bones like butter ‘till they was even more ‘fraid o’ you than Mad Barbosa an’ some ‘o them even went an’ hid below wi’ yer crew they was so scared-“
“I’ve just the thing!” The Captain exclaimed, and rolled over right on top of him.
“Sparrow! What do you think- mmphff!

Cal made me grin..James made me giggle..and Jack is the highlight of the story.
"a complete prick with that lovely Turner blade of his shoved up his arse Norrington may be, it was also true that the man was damn impressive, even ill and half-conscious." true, very true XD

I love your characterisation of James it's perfect.
..“You know, Mr. Sparrow, you are correct. Absolutely correct. It would serve no one’s purpose to shoot you now.” His smile widened, and more than one person on deck looked as if they thought he’d lost his mind. “But tell me, Mr. Sparrow, how do you intend to get your ransom money...” he cocked the pistol and very firmly set the end under his chin, “...if I’m dead?”
On to the next chapter!
