Jack Bauer and children [5/5]
"Sweetheart we already talked about this, remember? You’re supposed to call me ‘Grandpa’."
"You don’t look like a grandpa."
"Couldn’t agree with you more."
#do you see it?#the complete and utter happiness#right there in that one blink??#and also the way he lifts her arms#prompting her to hug him#and when she does he is so /so/ happy#he’s hardly even holding onto the sonic#because he’s holding her so tightly#this is why i adore ‘fear her’#it’s like the doctor finally realizes#the extent to which he is loved#and the extent to which he loves her back (via thebadddestwolf)
Jack was employed into service for the East India Trading Company and was given command of the Wicked Wench. However, after he set free a cargo of slaves, his employer, Cutler Beckett, had Jack branded as a pirate and the Wench set aflame and sunk.
After failing to rescue the Wench, Sparrow struck a bargain with the ghostly captain of the Flying Dutchman, Davy Jones, to resurrect his beloved vessel. Jones returned the ship to Jack in near perfect condition except for the permanently charred hull. This prompted Jack to rename her the Black Pearl. (via)
