j&e | ships

*please watch in hd*

Sometimes being in love isn’t enough, and things don’t work out.
‘And just like ships, we float through each other’s lives.’

“All I want is Will.”
“Are you certain?”
“I don’t know.”
“It would work between us, darling.”
“Where did you get that?”
“I think it’d be rather exciting to meet a pirate.”
“Pirate or not, this man saved my life.”
“One day, you won’t be able to resist.”
“One word, love: curiosity.”
“Miss Swann.”
“Where does it point?”
“It points to the thing you want most in this world.”
“Oh Jack.”
“You’re a good man.”
“I’m not sorry.”

Please ignore the little glitch at the very end of the video :(

Deep Water (Soulmates Never Die), a dark Jack/Elizabeth fanmix.

charon: deep water  "Slow where it sleeps forevermore / buried in frail dreams / Buried in deep water, built in me.”

epica: solitary ground "My compass has broken; I’m losing the way / An ongoing madness has led me astray."

tarot: tides
"And I feel like paper burning free / The wind is shattering me / I’m the sky, I’m the sea."

the 69 eyes: velvet touch "I buried my heart into the deepest seas / When the blood runs cold I feel hot in heat / The red moon rising over you and me."

opeth: soldier of fortune “Those days I thought my eyes had seen you standing near / Though blindness is confusing it shows that you’re not here.”

nightwish: the siren “I tied myself to the wheel / The winds talk to my sails, not me (Come to me) / Somewhere there my fate revealed / I hear but how will I see?”

rammstein: seemann “Wo willst du hin? / So uferlos / Die kalte See.”

placebo: sleeping with ghosts "The sea’s evaporated / Though it comes as no surprise / These clouds we’re seeing /They’re explosions in the sky."

bonus track:

siouxsie and the banshees: face to face One more kiss before we die / Face to face / And dream of flying / Who are you? Who am I? / Wind in wings / Two angels falling.”


(Note: This was first complied back in 2007 and is kind of AWE/post-AWE Jack POV. Enjoy!)

True True Love, Betrayal, Trust Issues, Hearts in Chests, Etc.


First and foremost, because this is the foundation for a lot of what the rest of my interpretations are based on – I think it can certainly be argued that the whole point the Davy Jones/Tia Dalma-slash-Calypso story was ever introduced to these movies, even back in Dead Man’s Chest, was in order to parallel it to Will/Elizabeth. The parallels were obviously crafted with intricacy – we even spotted them back in Dead Man’s Chest, before any of it became too overt: “a touch of destiny,” the strange chemistry between Tia and Will, and, of course, Tia’s description of a woman who fueled Davy Jones’ entire story – “a woman as changing and harsh and untamable as the sea.” Meanwhile, we watched Elizabeth make the swift transition from discontent damsel to capable pirate – it’s obvious that it’s not just Calypso we’re talking about with that line.

This does, of course, bring juxtaposition into play as well: Davy and Calypso’s love, though strong as ever even in At World’s End, is corrupted by deceit and betrayal; Will and Elizabeth’s is allegedly true, which ensures that Elizabeth won’t take to resurrecting dead pirate captains in her spare time and Will won’t grow a squid on his face. But really, we see Will and Elizabeth struggling with trust issue and deception and betrayal throughout the whole film, and, oddly enough, we haven’t seen any evidence of them being resolved when they marry at the end – only forgotten. Which begs the question, is the difference between the two pairs really so pronounced? Is Will and Elizabeth’s love as ideal as it first seems on the surface?

Jack, Freedom, and Elizabeth in AWE


The Pirates trilogy has always been about freedom – the eschewing of tradition, breaking out of social norms, and overcoming oppressors. Our two main characters, Jack and Elizabeth, are constantly on a quest for it – one that’s not over. 

What is Freedom?

“The entire ocean. The entire world… that’s what a ship is. What the Black Pearl really is… is freedom.” – Jack Sparrow, Curse of the Black Pearl

“You long for freedom. You long to do what you want to do because you want it. To act on selfish impulse.” – Jack Sparrow, Dead Man’s Chest

“They will see free men. And freedom! … And they will know what we can do, by the sweat of our brows and the strength of our backs, and the courage of our hearts.” – Elizabeth Swann, At World’s End

For the first two films, Jack Sparrow defines freedom for us, most succinctly in Dead Man’s Chest. Then, Elizabeth changes the definition. She declares it to be a balance of desire and character, rather than the simple lust of the flesh.

To act on selfish impulse…

One word, love. Curiosity. You long for freedom. You long to do what you want to do because you want it. To act on selfish impulse. You want to see what it’s like.

Okay, this line of Jack’s needs to be re-analyzed as I procrastinate writing a paper. hehehe. 

Now of course Jack is talking about Liz here, but I think, deep down, this is the BEST POSSIBLE description of HIMSELF at this point.

Jack is INCREDIBLY SELFISH… yeah, its charming and all, but its still true. He does what he wants to do. He acts of selfish impulse. He gets curious about things and so pursues them…

and I think, in some ways, that’s what is going on with Elizabeth. Especially at the beginning, Jack’s flirtation and pursual of Elizabeth is ANYTHING BUT noble. its incredibly selfish. he’s curious about her… and he doesnt like the restraint he feels he has to show cause she’s engaged or because of her class. he wants to act on selfish impulse—- and pretty much, he does. He flirts with her, manipulates her, lies to her. 

Of course, I don’t think he meant for his feelings to get so involved, which i think they do. Towards the end especially he turns this around and stops behaving selfishly and actually gets sacrificial about her… meanwhile, she’s getting all selfish. 

But, cynically speaking, is ANY love NOT selfish????
