... have nothing to do with the stories on this website, but a bit of promotion can't do much harm. I trust you to know how to use a search engine and find Johnny Depp, Bloomsy and Mrs. Knightley yourself. The rest of the lot hides well.
"Just call me Sparky" James Norrington:
has humour, brains and is mild on the eyes. Make him Prime Minister.
Lt. Gillette (his first name is not known. I made "Thomas" up. Disney probably hugged him, kissed him and called him George):
exists. That's all we know. He's like the Yeti, in a way - wise men don't have websites.
Updated: there's now a website about him: UNOFFICIAL DAMIAN O'HARE.
Lord Cutler Beckett (also doesn't have a first name. Poor git. I hugged him, kissed him and called him George):
Mr. Mercer (whom I named Alan is probably called George as well):
Anamaria is made of beauty and awesome, and nobody really understands why she wasn't in the second movie. We suspect somebody named George had to cut down the budget to finance Johnny Depp's waterpipe or Bloomsy's manicure:
Lt. Groves (has been called Daniel because George sounds stoopid. Using flash on your official website gets you listed here after Mr. Mercer):
Tia Dalma for the win!
Pintel (doesn't need a first name, he's cool enough):
Ragetti (is made of win and not called George, either):
Mr. Gibbs (is called Joshamee, which is better than George):
Got them all now? Yes? Fine. Then let's move on to fandom, historical facts, naval information and book recommendations:
If you're interested in fanfiction featuring the Navy Boys of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, the recommendation-list compiled by Mrs. Dauntless the everlovely migh be a good point to start your reading-experience:
THE NAVAL READING STARTER SET
If you're a journalist in the process of writing yet another moronic article about fanfiction "written by giggly teenagers" or the ever-popular "stuck-at-home-with-the-kids-mums", do us all a favour and jump out of the next porthole. Thanks.
