RS: Is sulking in corner, alternately wailing and cursing everyone she can think of.

*wails* The one post I let myself read beforehand was stunt_muppet's "mildly spoilerish" post in which she discussed her potential Pirates fic, so I had just one word rattling in my brain from the halfway point on: "Turnerette." If there was a Turnerette, there had to be a happy ending, right? Like Sam-and-Rosie LotR happy? I was picturing a scene like that.

So when Davey Jones merrily stabs Will, I'm all "Hm. Well, I'm sure he'll find a way to wriggle out of that. In the meantime, I will just enjoy this tender deathbed scene and 'aww' over Jack for getting her out of there. Because SOON THERE WILL BE TRIUMPHANT VICTORY AND RAINBOWS AND SUNSHINE YAY!"

And then there...like...wasn't.  At all.  One day? Ten years, one day? That is not the fairy tale life they're supposed to have together! That's a glorified booty call! ($&@(*$&@)*($!!!  I'd almost rather she'd run off with Jack; at least then I could have told myself she had a change of heart a few years down the road.

I will now proceed to deny that movies 2 and 3 ever happened. 

Also, need fic. Lots of fic. Lots and lots of W/E fic.    

[Edit: BLAST IT ALL TO HELL, in the midst of all the excitement I forgot to set my tape for So You Think You Can Dance. I watch three shows a week in the summer, and I miss one of them. I hate today.]

[Double edit: Ooh, found shiny new icon.  Am also feeling duly placated after having [found multiple people who share] [info]ashields124's [potentially] game-changing interpretation.  Now just have to wade through...*shudder* over 40 pages...of fic at the Pit to find a few gems, and I'll be ready to get on with the squeeing. I've also decided that I am most definitely gonna have to go to this one again.  That's the loophole in my rule, you see; in lieu of 4 unique movies, I can choose repeat viewings.  It will be well worth it.]

*snaps to attention*
He's what now? Seriously? How did I miss that? You know what, I don't care. SQUEEEEE! *tackle hugs* Thank you! That makes me feel considerably better.

(You know, I need a PotC icon too...I should go rummage around for one now.)

...Erm. I may have to disagree with ashields124 on this one, as gleeful as that scenario would make me. The way I understood it was that Davy had to guide souls to the other side faithfully in return for seeing Dalma/Calypso every ten years. When she didn't show up the first time around, he quit doing his job (opting instead to go around terrorizing shipwreck survivors) and turned Calypso over to the Brethren court, which is when the squidface curse kicked in. Therefore, so long as Will doesn't follow in Davy's footsteps and sticks to guiding souls, he'll remain tentacle-free, but that doesn't mean he still doesn't have to guide souls. After all, if he was free after ten years, who was going to do his job? It'd still need doing.

The green flash, I thought, was a sign that the Flying Dutchman and everyone on it had come back from the land of the dead (where it guided the dead) and had crossed over to the land of the living. That didn't mean they didn't have to go back.

Then again, they don't do a really good job of explaining any of this in the movie, so I guess you could interpret it either way you choose to. I choose the one I just explained. Yes, it's rather depressing, but it makes a bit more sense to me, and it does have the advantage that Will's going to stay young forever. :) And, if you think about it, there are all kinds of ways around the ten-year rule - Davy Jones' Safety Bucket comes to mind.

Boooo, fie on your interpretation (mostly because that's exactly how I interpreted it). But then I got thrown a life preserver, so I'm taking it, no questions asked. That's why I didn't dwell on logistical questions like "but then who would take his place?" (and "wait, isn't he still dead?")

And no-no, you certainly didn't spoil things with your post! I'm very grateful I read it, actually. :) It's what kept me from actively freaking the hell out in the theater, having that happy thought in the back of my mind. Plus, if I hadn't read that I wouldn't have bothered to stick around after the credits this time, and missing that shot of Will would have been a horrible disappointment. So all things considered, it was quite a boon.

Also, sincere apologies for the spoiling - I tried to black out "Turnerette", I really did. But at least that didn't spoil everything...right?

*looks apologetic*
