Read The Future So I can Changed it (POTC Version)

Chapter Text

It is just another normal day in Port Royal. But a normal day will always be ended up to have something extraordinary happened. Today is of course a day like this as well. James Norrington, who is currently a captain of the Royal Navy suddenly received a strange parcel, inside there are books as well as a letter. James decided to read the letter first. He originally thought it is only someone who decided to write a prank letter to him until he read the part that only he and himself know. The letter is like this,


Dear Captain Norrington, 

I am sorry if I am bold to you. But the reason why I wrote this letter is that I want to change something that has happened. I believed after reading this, you will change the future to save others life. I know you are a good man, someone who deserved anything. There are a few books that I want you to read, along with Governor Swann, Miss Elizabeth Swann, Mr Will Turner, Lieutenant T. Groves as well as Lieutenant A. Gillette. 

Yours sincerely,


P.S. If you don't trust me, there is something only you and your father know, he has once said: "I would rather see my son die than be indebted to a pirate."


James sighed. It seems that he needed to call the people whose name appeared in the letter to read in his own mansion. James cannot help but wonder what will happen in the future that this C.Y.L. wanted him to change. Something bad must have happened, or someone died. He looked at the books and frowned at the titles.


Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales


James looked at the titles. Pirates? Black Pearl? Dead Man's Chest....? What is happening in the future. James has a feeling that pirates must happen. As every title of the books included the word pirate. "Why this always happened to him?" James asked himself. He reads the letter again and smiled at the name of Miss Elizabeth Swann, he doesn't need to lie, he was in love with her for a few years already, but he never has the courage to ask her out.
