Disclaimer: Borrowed without permission and now rather badly damaged.
Warnings: Angst and more angst. (Jack taught Bootstrap some jokes, but he tells them like the glum old stick that he is.) Also soul-searching, self-doubt, denial, and editorial intrusions.
Note: Lies 2, in which Barbossa tells his side of the story, will follow in May. So let me know what you like and don’t before I do it all again!
