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.

OKAY, CAN WE TALK ABOUT THIS FOR A SECOND?
Moriarty is in Sherlock’s Mind Palace. CHAINED UP, IN SHERLOCK’S BLOODY MIND PALACE.
Not only did Sherlock fully accept the whole “I am you” “You’re me” conversation that they had, he recognizes it IN HIMSELF that there is a part of him that truly is Moriarty.
AND HE CHAINED IT UP.
Poe’s Law: That moment when a Fox Business commentator sounds just like a Disney villain.
I was rewatching this last night with some of the usual suspects, and I noticed a thing: this is the only time Elsa slips on ice.
She later runs up a staircase made of ice, in heels, while skipping steps, and this is the only time she slips on ice.
I wonder, if on days upon weeks locked in her room, watching life outside from her window, and spends hours upon hours walking on ice. In slippers, in heels, barefoot even. Runs laps around her room, maybe jumping jacks, all just to practice. So she’ll never, ever slip on her own ice again. Because she lost her footing once, and it nearly cost her everything. (And look who paid, paid so dearly that it’s still written in her hair.)
And she’d rather damn herself than lose her footing again. (Turns out, that didn’t matter, in the end.)
