Title: Early In the morning
Prompt: drinking
Rating: pg
Word count: what are you talking about! how dare you!
Characters: Jack, Davey Jones

Notes: Jacks first conversation with Davey, and then his thoughts afterwards.

What Shall we do with a drunken Sailor?
What Shall we do with a drunken Sailor?
What Shall we do with a drunken Sailor?
Early in the morning!

Put him in the longboat, till he sobers!
Put him in the longboat, till he sobers!
Put him in the longboat, till he sobers!
Early in the morning!

"I know that song....
I remember it...
I remember the faces who used to sing it.
dead.
all dead.
except me, their usless Captain, the only one that should be.

 Ooh rea and up she rises!
Ooh rea and up she rises!
Ooh rea and up she rises!
Early in the morning!

Bill...
William as well, my fool of a friend, I told him, I TOLD HIM! Get off the ship, Bill, GET OFF THE SHIP!
But he never did.
He clang to me as if I were his salvation, as if I could save him!
All I could do was send them to the drink.

I wish I could cry about my men and those poor savages lost to the locker, I wish I could cry over Bill, dear William, perfect and irriplacable William, I wish I could cry over my ship, over the burning of my right forearm, I wish I could but I am just so tired...

So yes. I'll cut a deal with you, name your price to stop this pain, I'll give you my soul for theirs, my body for my ship, my heart for his."

"Agreed."

 

 

 

 

Jack would often think of that first conversation he had with Davy Jones, he would think about how desperate he had been. Then he'd think about Tia and her people, nestled away safe where only he could find them, and his soul felt at ease, he'd think about the pearl, strong and steady beneith his feet, and his body felt rested. He'd think about Bill, and his heart would break.
Maybe that's why Jones had agreed to the deal in the first place.

Tia Dalma Fan Community
Hi there! Sorry, this has nothing to do with your post. I wasn’t sure where else to post this.

I noticed that Tia Dalma is one of your interests and I just wanted to inform you of the Tia Dalma fan community I have set up. I’ve done a considerable amount of work on it thus far(there are 4 galleries; one for screencaps, miscellaneous pics, fanart, and the most recent comic gallery, AND 2 fanfics) but I’m still busy asking more people for permission to use their Tia-related fanart and fanfics in the community.

Anyway, just thought I would send you the link to the community in case you’re interested. If you like what you see, please join. Here’s the link: http://community.livejournal.com/dalmafan/

Enjoy!
