Pirates of the Caribbean: The Price of Freedom
Pirates of the Caribbean: The Price of Freedom | A.C. Crispin
69 posts | 8 read | 9 to read
Twenty-five-year-old Jack Sparrow is a clean-cut merchant seaman pursuing a legitimate career as a first mate for the East India Trading Company. He sometimes thinks back to his boyhood pirating days, but he doesn t miss Teague s scrutiny or the constant threat of the noose. Besides, he doesn t have much choice he broke the Code when he freed a friend who had been accused of rogue piracy, and he can no longer show his face in Shipwreck Cove. When Jack's ship is attacked by pirates and his captain dies in the altercation, he suddenly finds himself in command. The wily sailor's skillful negotiations with the pirate captain who turns out to be a woman from his past result in a favorable outcome that puts Jack in line for an official promotion. After making port in Africa, Jack is summoned by Cutler Beckett, who makes him captain of a ship called the Wicked Wench. Beckett gives Jack an assignment. He has heard a legend about a magical island named Zerzura whose labyrinthine bowels are said to contain a glorious treasure. Beckett suspects that one of his house slaves, a girl named Ayisha, is from Zerzura. He asks Jack to take her along on his voyage and seduce her into divulging the island s whereabouts. In payment for his services Beckett promises Jack a share of the treasure. But this task isn t as easy as Jack initially believes. Before she agrees to reveal the location of her home, Ayisha insists that Jack take her to the New World to rescue her brother, who has been sold into slavery in the Bahamas. Their voyage is long and arduous, and as they weather a vicious storm and a surprise attack from an old pirate foe, Jack grows to respect and admire Ayisha's bravery. He knows that Beckett intends to enslave her people after robbing them of their treasure, and Jack s moral compass revolts at the idea. It might be possible to deliver Ayisha safely to Zerzura, obtain some of the treasure, and convince Beckett that he never found it . . . but the greedy E. I. T. C. official has eyes everywhere, and if he learns that Jack has foiled his plans, he could take away the thing that Captain Sparrow loves most: his ship and his freedom.

“It's not just a keel and a hull and sails; that's what a ship needs. Not what a ship is. What the Black Pearl really is, is freedom."

Jack also frees the shipload of slaves, which the Wicked Wench (turned Black Pearl) was transporting.

Today is William Shakespeare‘s death date.

The tagged book, about a young adult (soon to be Captain) Jack Sparrow, who‘s read Shakespeare, is never going to give up his ship-the Black Pearl!

Read the origin story of how Jack came to captain the Pearl!

Mdargusch 👍🏼. That cover! 💙 7mo
Reviewsbylola Sounds so good! 7mo
CrowCAH @Mdargusch it‘s the Pearl before she became pirate! 7mo
CrowCAH @Reviewsbylola it‘s actually quite a good read; read it twice! 7mo

Some pre-work relaxing. FYI to POTC fans: One of the actors (Marty) has stated if the film makes 800 Billion that they're planning on another one. Just FYI.

"Obedient to he captain's will, the Black Pearl followed her dark angel over the azure water; as fast as the wind, as free as the men who sailed her. It was almost as though she knew she was a legend in the making, destined for adventures both great and terrible...

My reading platform today since I'm starting off my #readthroughthe4th with a migraine 😫. Turns out the metal platter is super cold on my head, so I have my book on the next one down while I lean against it and read. If I were rich and had my own place, I'd so have an old film platter system as a sort of rotating shelf. It's uses are endless.

"Land ho!" This ship has sailed the warm sea of the Caribbean and has docked at port. It's now time to pleasure away the spoils we've attained from our cruising raids.

I couldn't have brought this ship into port all by me lonesome self, so it's officially time to thank me crew and all who participated!!!

In a sense, the POTC logos show a version of a #JollyRogers, at least the At Worlds End logo depicts a #SkullAndCrossedBones.

"Hoist the colors!"

This is in reference to the #JollyRogers, the trademark of a pirate. It signaled and warned enemy ships of their untimely death and what they could expect from the pirates, no mercy. Originally, red in color, as seen on the playing cards, and got its name from the French word rouge, meaning red.

Cpt Jack Sparrow's flag shows his bandana and piece of eight and a little grey sparrow.

A bonus post for #WeaponsReady

It's important to always have a sword handy, so you can battle your enemies on a crumbling structure or broken water wheel. Seen here are Cpt Jack, Norrington, and Will fighting. With the heart of Davy Jones, in the chest, defended by a member of the Flying Dutchman's crew.

jenniferw88 One of my favourite scenes from the movie 💞 3y
CrowCAH @jenniferw88 mine, too!!! If you look closely at the wheel, you'll see there's a space where Jack would fit in and get 'stuck' as he's coming out of the grave. Also, even better, there's a lever which releases the wheel from its cradle and will roll away, just like the movie!!! 😁 3y
jenniferw88 @CrowCAH 😂 my other favourite scene is what I call the 'fruit kebab' scene from the same movie - dead man's chest is definitely my favourite of the movies so far 3y

Here is a game the #UnderTheSeaCreatures played, on the Flying Dutchman, in Dead Man's Chest. It's a game of chance, wit, lies, and speculation.

Unfortunately, for the men bound to the Dutchman, they have become part of the sea and part of the ship, so they have started to grow coral and algae, and become fish like. They are not of the living; they are dead men.

This book may not be a #CursedBook, but it sure causes a lot of hardship for the POTC characters, and gives us a great line, "the Code is more what you‘d call 'guidelines' than actual rules."

Parlay is mentioned and how to vote for Pirate King is detailed within the pages of the Pirate Codex, put forth by pirates Morgan and Bartholomew.

Here's a reminder of the Pirates of the Caribbean photo challenge, just in case you forgot or are a new friend and would like to play! Tag me, your captain, @CrowCAH

***I will be awarding POTC themed prizes to any Littens who complete all the daily challenges.*** (There are a couple people who are super close to accomplishing this, FYI.)

Today we have the Moa Kun #Maps, aka Navigational Charts or Map to the Land of the Dead. This is no ordinary map, it has rotating pieces, which when aligned will reveal pictures of objects and places to search for treasure!

This is the map that showed where to find the Fountain of Youth, movie four, and the Trident of Poseidon, move five. "Up is down."
