A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 1 A flash of green. The signal that someone has come back to this world from the dead. Or someone has left this world without dying. As a great pirate named Gibbs has said, "Some go their whole lives and never see it, some claim to have seen it who ain't." And as Elizabeth Turner stood there on that island beach, seeing it for the second time in her life, she could only cry at the sight. Someone had indeed left this world. And he had left her alone.A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 18 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
She clutched the chest that she now held tight to her, cradling it in her arms. "Will," she whispered to it, "What am I to do for the next ten years?" She was alone on an island she was unsure of. Her husband, Captain of the Flying Dutchman, had stranded her there. Stranded is such a harsh word, she thought to herself. He loved her. He had left her there to keep her safe. Safe from danger, peril, and life-threatening adventures. The things she loved and longed for.
A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 3 Elizabeth woke before Jack did. She didn't have as much sleep to catch up on as he, and was also terribly thirsty. There was water all around her, but not a drop to drink. She shot a quick glance at Jack. He had his arms tucked under his head and his legs were crossed. Relaxed, as usual. A smile was spread across his face. She could just imagine what he was dreaming about... the Fountain of Youth, the Pearl, rum... the list could go on forever!A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 38 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
I'm so thirsty! she thought to herself, gazing at the sea. Then she looked back at Jack. She noticed that his small rum container was slightly peeking out of his pocket. Normally she would not drink rum without considering it, but under these circumstances, did she have a choice?
Slowly but surely, she reached her hand towards the container, grabbing the cap with the tips of her fingers, and started to pull it from his pocket. It slid out, but suddenly, his hand shot
A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 30 Liam stopped crying. Jack couldn't believe it. The minute Elizabeth shut the door behind her, the cabin was lost to the quiet of the evening. Although he most certainly wouldn't admit it out loud, Jack was growing to like Liam. Sure, he cried too much and he smelled sometimes, but the faces he made were entertaining and they made Elizabeth smile bigger than she ever had before.A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 307 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Jack gazed at the child in his arms. He noticed that Liam had drooled on himself. Jack started rubbing the slobber off with his thumb. Without warning, Liam reached out and grabbed it. Jack tried to free his finger from the baby's grasp, but the child was stronger than the pirate had thought.
"Decided to take my finger hostage, have you?" Jack asked Liam, "Eager to be a pirate already?" The baby let go of his thumb and attached to one of the captain's dreadlocks instead. The owner of the captured dreadlock pulled his head back, hoping Liam would let go, but i
A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 29 Jack sat atop one of the crosstrees of the Black Pearl, spinning his hat on his finger. The cool air hit his face as she ship glided across the calm water. He watched his crew walk across the deck below. On one corner was a crowd of pirates, gathering around Elizabeth to see the new baby. Since everyone had been occupied by that for the last week or so, Jack had humbly volunteered himself to be in charge of feeding Barbossa in the brig.A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 297 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
The captain had pondered possibly releasing the scallywag, but waved off the idea. He deserved some punishment. However, the next time they docked, he was to be off for good. Jacks finger faltered and his hat descended to the deck below. He groaned inwardly and looked out to the setting sun on the horizon. It seemed less pleasant and inviting than he remembered. He knew why, too; it reminded him of their destination: Curdy Island. They were taking Elizabeth home.
The pirate life is no place for a
A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 28 "How are you feeling, love?" Jack asked in worry. Elizabeth glared at him and growled, "Well, Jack," she huffed, "if you really want to know... why don't you take a rock and shove it up your-"A Swann's Freedom: Chapter 287 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
"Alright then!" he interrupted her before she could finish.
Four pirates were carrying Elizabeth to the Black Pearl, running all the way. There was a pirate carrying and lifting her by each arm and leg. Elizabeth was sweating and, every time a contraction hit, she struggled and the pirates dropped her. Captain Teague was hurrying with Jack, behind the mother and her escorts.
"Where do you plan on having her give birth?" he asked.
Jack could only reply, "Uh..."
As they neared the Pearl, Elizabeth turned her head to face Jack and said, "You're going to have to pick a place fairly soon!" Another contraction came and she squeezed Gibbs' hand with all her might.
He grimaced and wheezed. "Now I know that there's bones in my hand... because I can
