And The Clocks Were Striking Thirteen

Best FF That Shows Us That Captain Jack Sparrow Has Many Lessons to Teach Us, and Every Last One of Them Is Illegal in at Least Nine States.  But, Hey, Don't Let That Stand in Your Way. First Warning, by Rave, aka dorkorific -- Pirates of the Caribbean, Jack Sparrow/Will Turner.  So, if the last story taught us to be careful what we drink in the company of aliens, this story teaches us to be careful what we drink in the company of Captain Jack Sparrow.  Though, really, if you needed to be taught that, you should probably have another look at the movie.  Here, Jack proves to be, surprisingly, a gentleman.  Of course, he's a gentleman who isn't above copping a cheap feel, but then most of them aren't.  And Will proves to be, not at all surprisingly, adept at convenient unconsciousness.  I bet that got him out of any number of uncomfortable situations growing up.  And in addition to the lovely trope of drunken Will and entertained Jack, this story offers us bonus sea shanties! Sort of.  Sea shanties sung the way I sing them, actually, which means with only 10% of the words accurate and in the right place.  (I'm still convinced there's a song about "Camptown ladies five miles long" and "Camptown rangers" and "something something bay.")
