Oh but don’t you know my dear? It was meant to be
Sparrabeth + tickles my pickle
↳(mouth/lips/flawlessness pornish things requested by desiringpirates)
Sparrabeth + reversed roles
↳requested by anonymous
I think it has been a long time since I edited anything Sparrabeth/PotC related so, if you have any requests, shoot me! :3
ahh sweet anon I nearly forgot about you! (I read this message on my phone and then I just forgot to check again on here)
okay never mind about any dumb questions like most of the things I don’t understand them myself so never mind, ask away :33
the importance of the deleted scenes let’s see
Elizabeth Swann up until that point (and even later on but i’ll go back to that later) doesn’t see piracy in its whole picture. The gurl has read books and dreamed of meeting a pirate because it would be exciting (and let’s look at the period time, like she doesn’t have much freedom in society) so mostly piracy is a big adventure to live for a short time and then go back to ‘normalcy’ (like at the end of CotBP she stayed on Port Royal not even considering living the pirate life she was singing about at the beginning)
The island scene it’s her first scene properly talking with Jack (THE pirate of her dreams) and her first disappointment in him and the fact that Jack NEEDED to show her his scars to get her to understand him, because deep down (or not that deep down) he didn’t want to see that disappointment, because he wanted to open her eyes and tell her not all stories weren’t true, that the ‘funny’ Jack we see is not all that it’s there, like guys Jack dropped the veil, the mask he hides behind, and showed Lizzie his scars (considering that to be a really intimate thing to do I’m sure of it) and even the back ground music changed in that bit, Jack’s expression, Elizabeth’s face, everything that was there just changed. The fact they deleted one of the few scenes that show some depth to Jack and Sparrabeth is just infuriating, sure they had to delete the ‘peas in a pod’ scene as well (because yes any mention to both of them being more than showed is like nope) and gah I started to ramble I’m sorry xDD
back to the point, it doesn’t only show depth to Jack, but to Lizzie too, the fact that she understands him, the fact that they share a connection, Elizabeth can’t open her eyes just yet coz she’s destined to be the housekeeper as we are told, she’s supposed to live piracy through others (as desiringpirates beautifully wrote) and not experience piracy by herself, not all stories aren’t true, but there is more that just that, there are scars, as she later knows (because until that moment, until the moment she killed Jack, she didn’t want to admit she was THE pirate as well, that ‘a pirate’s life for me’ wasn’t just a song)
they all faced their own scars (Lizzie, Norry, Will) in order to become true pirates.
and hey speaking of, here
Sparrabeth AU in which after a long journey of pirating Jack returns home to Elizabeth and their son James Sparrow.
Anything written by salr or fried-flamingos has left my shipper heart happy. Have you checked out their combined effort of At World’s End Redux? Massively interesting and satisfying. Reads like a novel. I love it.

- No! Not good! Stop! Not good! What are you doing? You burned all the food, the shade… the rum!
- Yes, the rum is gone
- Why is the rum gone?
- One: because it is a vile drink that turns even the most respectable men into complete scoundrels. Two: that signal is over a thousand feet high. The entire royal navy is out looking for me, do you think there is even the slightest chance they wont see it?
- But why is the rum gone?
