The sound of my knife slitting across a throat feels much to loud in the darkness.
I catch the pirate before his corpse hits the ground and gently lower him the rest of the way. He is only the first of Theris's - no, Vordan's, I remind myself - crew who will die tonight
"Have you decided you want to be a permanent member of the crew, then?" I tease.
"Aye, Captain." He lifts the tricorne off my head and runs his fingers through my hair. "I'll sail with you anywhere. I don't care where we go it what we do as long as I'm with you
"And that was without even a single drop of rum."
-Captain Jack Sparrow- Pirates Of The Caribbean: At The World’s End
“I may not have been born in the sea, but I was born to rule it.
I am the daughter of the siren queen.”
“Your enchantments last long after your song fades.”
’’THE SOUND OF MY knife slitting across a throat feels much too loud in the darkness.’’
“If I have to ask you one more time, I’ll start singing,” I warn. “What should I make you do first? Break your legs? Draw pictures on the walls in your own blood?”
"To be the siren is to never be afraid. To never hunger or thirst. Never doubt or worry. Never fear."
“You wouldn’t give a second thought to a couple of men aboard your ship behaving in such a way or talking such talk. You do not get to judge us more harshly for being women. It’s not fair, and it doesn’t make sense. Not to mention I’ll throw your arse overboard if I catch you doing it again.”
"I will go to her as soon as we’re safe. For now, I need to be captain."
"I need to swallow my nausea and pride in this moment. Forget what it does to my dignity."
"Part of me will always miss it, I think. This place where my family resides. But I will be back when we can spare the time."
"I may not have been born in the sea, but I was born to rule it. I am the daughter of the siren queen."
“How did we turn out the way we did when such horrible men raised us?” I wonder aloud.
“Because we are not our fathers. We saw what evil looked like, and we knew we wanted to be different.”
“I have twenty-eight excellent girls aboard this ship, and their pasts have shaped them. Just as yours has shaped you. And every single one of them, down to little Roslyn, deserves your respect.”
