The Faithful Bride was full of noise, as usual. People were shouting, screaming, laughing, and snoring in the dimly lit room. Jack Sparrow smiled as he walked in. After being away for far too many years-months rather-the tavern hadn't changed at all. He could even recognize the people that were there the last time he came. He sat down at his usual table near the back, took a deep breath of the scents of rum, vomit, old fish, sweat, and far too many perfumes, and happily leaned back in his chair. It almost felt like home.

And then something dropped on the table. Jack opened his eyes, narrowing his eyes in confusion. It was a wooden crate with a note nailed to the top, addressed to him at the Faithful Bride.

"Barmaid says it showed up last week." Mr. Gibbs explained. Jack looked up at him for a minute. He simply rolled his eyes, before turning around to get the rum.

Jack pulled the paper off from the top of the crate, already knowing exactly who it was from. Teague's handwriting was unmistakable. The contents of this letter did surprise him though.

'I found these at River Thames, you idiot.

-Da'

"And we were just starting to like each other." Jack mumbled, rereading the letter with a smirk on his face. He couldn't help but to laugh a little. After rereading the letter yet again, he folded it back up and stuffed it into his sash. He could put it in a better place once he returned to the long boat. Jack then pulled a knife out from his sash and went to work on the nails of the crate. As soon as the lid was off, the smile on Jack's face turned into a big grin.

Inside was possibly the best thing anyone had ever given Jack: his old jacket and his beloved tricorn hat…


I was reading the Pirates of the Caribbean Wiki page about Jack's hat, and realized that he had lost it when he and Angelica escaped The Captain's Daughter. Just to be sure, I rewatched On Stranger Tides and noticed that he jacket was gone...

I am also very curious as to exactly how Barbossa's clothes ended up on the Queen Anne's Revenge...Blackbeard likes to take a man's clothing after caturing his ship?

In this story, let's just say that the jacket was left behind...

I am shockingly blocked up on every story (fan fiction and original), AMV, and script I've been working on...makes finishing them very difficult...

So of course the only story I'm not blocked up on is the one I have no intention of actually finishing...
