This is one of the first fanfictions I ever wrote. Unfortunately, I lost the original version, but I've decided to revisit the idea. I wrote this purely for fun and for my love of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' series, and Captain Jack Sparrow! Hope you enjoy! You could say this story is in honour of the fifth film (I know, I'm super late posting this if it's for the fifth movie!)
I do not own 'Pirates of the Caribbean'! All rights to Disney! I only own Izzie :)
Joining her friend Will Turner and the rogue pirate captain, Jack Sparrow, Isabelle Raven, who is hiding from her past, goes on a journey to free governor's daughter Elizabeth from the captivity of cursed pirates. She finds herself quickly drawn to the pirate captain, who's she's heard about in stories and considers a hero. However, the Jack Sparrow (Captain, pardon me! ;)) of reality is much different from the Jack Sparrow of legend - or is he? Yo ho, yo ho a pirate's life for me!
Thanks, and I hope you enjoy! :)
(Just a little context, in this excerpt my character, Isabelle, is down in the dungeons talking to Jack when he's locked up.)
"Is it true, are you really Jack Sparrow?" She hadn't believed it at first when she'd heard it from the guards, that it had been the notorious Jack Sparrow who had threatened Elizabeth, and was right here in Port Royal. She'd heard stories about him - a dashing hero who always evaded the authorities, freezing slaves, stealing to give to the people. He did deeds considered against the law, but did them for the better. The man here before herwas a drunken pirate who seemed only concerned about himself, and who was very much locked up.
"There really should be a 'Captain' in there somewhere but yes, lass, it is I, the one, the only." He gave her a gold-toothed grin.
"Hmm..." It was disappointing to have looked up to a figure only to be let down by who they actually turned out to be. Jack Sparrow - Captain - despite always breaking the rules, knew how to live, lived the adventure. Trapped strictly following rules her whole life, Isabelle longed for such freedom, and it was this very man who had inspired her to take matters of her freedom into her own hands. Really, he was the whole reason she was here in Port Royal in the first place. And now here he was, in the flesh. And he, her hero, her inspiration, was... Disappointing to be honest.
Of course, this was just the first impression. She didn't like judging by first impressions as had happened to her many times before. Such as with Elizabeth - when she'd first seen her, Isabelle had thought that she was just the snobbish, spoiled Governor's daughter, but she had actually turned out to be very nice. Maybe the same would become of her pirate hero - that is, if she ever saw him again.
She hoped she wouldn't be disappointed.
Well, I hope you enjoyed and that it got you excited for the rest of the story! :) thanks so much for reading! And haha, I'm listening to the 'Pirates' soundtrack as I write this!
