May. 24th, 2005 @ 12:50 am Alternate non-cliched ending to "Pirates of the Carribean"
Current Mood: creative
After a friend proclaimed her desire to see an alternate ending to PotC, I realized, "yes, it WAS a bit cliched" and decided to write one. 10 years later, here it is. ENJOY!

Jack: [notices the parrot] Well! I’m actually feeling rather good about this. [to Governor Swann ] I think we've all arrived at a very special place, eh? Spiritually…Ecumenically…Grammatically? [to Norrington] I want you to know that I was rooting for you, mate. Know that. Elizabeth …it would never have worked between us, darling. I’m sorry. Will …nice hat. Friends! This is the day that you will always remember as the day that – [falls over battlement]

Gillette: Idiot. He has nowhere to go but back to the noose.

Sentry: Sail ho!

Gillette: What’s your plan of action? Sir?

****************************************(start of edits)
Governor Swann: Perhaps on the rare occasion pursuing the right course demands an act of piracy, piracy itself can be the right course?

Norrington: Uhh...if you'll pardon me, sir, but I don't believe the ends justifies the means. Although you did save my fiancee's life, and I thank you for that, what you have done is against the law. To let you go without any punishment would condone piracy and illegal acts and we can't have that. Why, it would be sheer anarchy!

Will: [to Elizabeth ] I will accept the consequences of my actions

Elizabeth: You can't do this! He saved me! He did it all just to save ME! And...I...I love him!

[Everyone gasps]

Norrington: I'm sorry Elizabeth, but rules are rules. Take him to prison and we will sentence him this afternoon. [The Guards move toward Will]

Elizabeth: Father! You're the governor! Do something!

Governor Swann: Are you sure about your love for him Elizabeth? After all…he is a blacksmith.

Elizabeth : No. [takes off Will ’s hat] Norrington is right. He's a pirate. [Elizabeth looks at Will in hopes that he understand what she means. He looks at her and nods.]

Will [Unsheaths sword and holds it up]: Stand back, I WILL kill you if need be. Ready...Elizabeth? [She nods. They move back until they are at the edge. Will grabs Elizabeth and holds her close to him. They fall together off the battlement].

Governor and Norrington: ELIZABETH! [They look down at the water. Elizabeth and Will are swimming towards the Black pearl].

Gillette: Commodore! What shall we do? And what about Sparrow?

Norrington: Ready the ships! We'll set sail immediately and catch those pirates and...

Governor: No, Norrington, you will not. You've lost to Sparrow and now to Will. Accept the defeat like a man and let my daughter be with the one she loves. As much as it pains me to lose her, I'd rather know she is happy over there with Will than miserable here with you. [to guards] You are all dismissed [the soldiers leave and after them, the Governor. Norrington, visibly crushed and humiliated, stands alone in silence, staring at the Black Pearl.]

Norrington: Next time we meet, pirates, you will not be so fortunate.
