This is my first POTC/Buffy fic. I couldn't get this out of my head so I had to write it.
Disclaimer: I don't own them only borrowing them for a bit. I also borrwed one of the pirate songs from Treasure Island which is written by Robert Louis Stevenson.
Parings: Will/ Buffy
NOTES: I changed this a little bit. There are no Swans. Buffy is the Governor's daughter.
I hope you enjoy this. PLEASE READ AND REVIEW!
The air around the ship was foggy, as Elizabeth Summers, who liked to be called Buffy, held onto her two-year-old sister as she began to cry. Her father had put her in charge of taking care of sister on this voyage. She knew Dawnie liked singing but the only songs she could think of were pirate songs.
"Ten men on a dead man's chest. Yo ho-ho and a bottle of rum. Drink and the devil will do the rest. Yo ho-ho and a bottle of rum." Buffy sang and Dawnie seemed too quiet down until Buffy stopped not knowing any more of the song. She quickly thought of another song.
"…We pillage, we plunder, we rifle and loot. Drink up me 'earties yo ho! We kidnap and ravage and don't give a hoot. Drink up me 'earties yo ho! Yo ho, yo ho a pirates life for me. We extort, we pilfer, we filch and sack. Drink up…"
A hand clamped down upon her shoulder making her jump slightly. She turned around to see that it was Mr. Gibbs.
"Quiet, missy. Cursed pirates sail these waters. You don't want to bring them down on us now do you?"
"Mr. Gibbs that will do," said Norrington as he came up behind the man.
"She was singing about pirates. It's bad luck to be singing about pirates with us mired in this unnatural fog. Mark my words."
"Consider them marked," said Norrington with barely a bother. "On your way."
"Aye, Lieutenant." Gibbs said mumbling as he began to move away. "It's bad luck to have a woman on board, too. Even a miniature one."
The all watched him go. Dawnie let go of her sister's hand to go over to their father. Governor Summers gladly picked up his youngest daughter.
"I think it'd be rather exciting to meet a pirate."
"Think again, Miss Summers. Vile and dissolute creatures the lot of them. I tend that any man who sails under a pirate flag or wears a pirate brand gets what he deserves. A short drop and a sudden stop."
Buffy see Gibbs making a hanging motion behind Norrington's back. She let a small gasp and looked slightly horrified.
"Lieutenant Norrington, I appreciate your fervor, but I'm concerned about the effect this subject will have upon my daughters." Governor Summers said he and Dawnie moved closer to Buffy.
"I find all this really interesting." Buffy told her father.
"Yes. That's what concerns me. You have your mother's spirit. Do try to stay out of trouble." He kissed Buffy on her cheek before turning and walking away with Dawnie. Buffy turns and begins to look out into the water. Almost immediately she spots something in the water but due to the fog she cannot see it clearly. She begins to follow the floating object trying to see what it is. After a few seconds, the fog begins to clear a bit and she gets a good look at the item. It was a white parasol with dots. She watches as it floats by. Turning her to look at the water, this time she spots a boy around her age floating unconsciously on a piece of wreckage.
"Father! Lieutenant! There's a boy! Look! There's a boy in the water!"
Her father, Norrington, Gibbs and several crewmembers ran to look where she was pointing.
"Man overboard! Man the ropes. Fetch a hook. Haul them aboard." Lieutenant Norrington called out to the men. Governor Summers handed his youngest to his oldest. Buffy took Dawnie's hand and began moving toward where they were bringing the unconscious boy aboard.
"He's still breathing," said Norrington with some concern.
Soon everyone had their eyes on the brightly burning ship that they were passing. Buffy had never seen anything like it.
"What happened here?" Governor Summers asked while drawing his two daughters closer to him.
"It's most likely the powder magazine. Merchant vessels run heavily armed." Norrington replies.
"A lot of good it did them," said Gibbs. "Everyone's thinking it. I'm just saying it. Pirates."
"Pirates? There's no proof of that. It's probably an accident." Governor Summers said not wanting to frighten his children
"Rouse the captain immediately. Heave to and take in sail. Launch the boats." Norrington commanded.
"Heave to!" The crew responded. Governor Summers steered his two daughters away from the wreckage. The last thing he needed was for Elizabeth to start going on about pirates again. He moved them toward a group of men who were moving the boy to more out of the way spot.
"Elizabeth, I want you to take your sister and accompany the boy. They will both be in your charge. Take care of them." Buffy nodded.
"Come on Dawnie."
She sat Dawnie down on the ground near the boy while she begins to look him over. Buffy cannot help but want to touch his hair. Her hand had just lightly brushed it when he woke with a gasp grabbing her hand. She took a deep breath to settle her nerves.
"It's okay. My name's Elizabeth Summers and this is Dawnie."
"W-Will Turner." He managed to get out between gasp. Buffy looked over him lovingly.
"I'm watching over you, Will." She looked him over. Dawnie had come closer her little hands pulling on a string. Her giggling brought Buffy's attention back to the present.
"What do you have there, Dawnie?" Buffy asked as her sister immediately pulled away clutching her treasure tightly in her hand.
"Let me see Dawnie or I'll tell daddy you're being a bad girl."
Dawnie opened her hand slowly and Buffy examined the coin that's hanging from the string. She looks at the unconscious boy.
"He's a pirate. This is our little secret Dawnie. You can't tell anyone. Promise?"
"Pwmis." Dawnie tried to say.
"Has he said anything?" Buffy jumped slightly at Norrington's voice. She stood up making sure to keep her hands behind her back.
"His name's William Turner. That's all I found out."
"Take him below." Norrington tells his men.
She watched as the men picked him up to take him below making sure to keep the necklace hidden. When they were gone, she and Dawnie moved to look out over the water again. Buffy held the coin to the light and soon saw a pirate ship with all black sails. She blinked and the ship was gone.
Elizabeth Summers woke with a smile on her face. She loved when she would dream about William. It had been a long time since she had dreamed that particular dream. Getting up she moves to the dresser and opens up a drawer where the necklace is hidden. It was the one thing she had that belong to her Will. She had returned it to Will a few years after they had found him, when he talked to her about his father and how he wished he had gotten to know him better.
When he had mentioned the necklace Buffy had returned it to him telling that he took it so that the others wouldn't see it and think he was a pirate. A few years later, he gave it to her as an affection of his love. She looks into the mirror and puts it on. She admires it when there's a knock on her door.
"Elizabeth?" Buffy hearing her father calling her name rushed to get her robe on. In her haste, she knocked over a chair. "Is everything okay in there? Are you decent?"
She quickly threw the robe on and stuffed the medallion between her breasts.
"Yes. You can come in."
The door to her room opened admitting her father and some servants who began to open the curtains and window.
"Still abed at this hour?" Her father asked.
Buffy hid her smile as she thought about what she had been doing the previous night. The bright light forced her to close her eyes.
"Oh, it's a beautiful day. I have a gift for you." Her father say turning to open the box the servant carried.
"Oh, it's beautiful!" Buffy said taking the dress out of the box.
"It is. Isn't it?"
"You got Dawnie to help pick it out didn't?"
"I'll have you know I pick this for you myself." Her father said with a proud smile.
"May I inquire as to the occasion?"
"Does a father need an occasion to dote upon his daughter?" He asked innocently.
"Normally I say no, but I can see it in your eyes."
"You got me. I had hoped you might wear it for the ceremony today."
"Captain Norrington's promotion ceremony."
"I knew it! That completely slipped my mind. Must I go father? I made plans with Willow today."
"Do I really need to dignify that question with a response?" Buffy sighed as she moved behind the screen and began to change. "He's a fine gentleman don't you think? He fancies you, you know."
Buffy let out a gasp as the maids pulled tightly on the laces of the corset. Buffy looked at them evilly.
"Elizabeth?" Her father called out slightly concerned. "How's it coming?"
"It's difficult to say." She gasped out.
"I'm told it's the latest fashion in London."
"Well, women in London must have learnt not breathe or have learnt to breathe through their ears."
Buffy said as she gasped once again. She heard her father chuckle slightly and then heard the footsteps of the butler.
"Milord, you have a visitor."
"Elizabeth, do hurry before we're late, and make sure you bring Dawn down with you."
