(no subject)

After encountering Destiny in his cabin, Will emerges onto the deck with a thoughtful expression, his fingers playing with the locket that rests against his scarred chest.

It's worth a try.

"Prepare to go under," he announces top the crew as he strides up to the helm and takes the wheel.

He's done this countless times before, so have his crew. They know what it's about. Only this time, as the ship pitches forward to sink under, Will grips his charm with Elizabeth's hair tightly, and offers a quick prayer. To Calypso, to Destiny, to Elizabeth herself.

Take me to where the dead and the living can co-exist. To where we can be together.

He looks to catch Norrington's eye when they sink in, and is only partly surprised when most of the crew seem to disappear as they re-emerge in an inlet in a very familiar lake.

Norrington is smiling as they come back up.

"I wondered if I'd ever see this place again."

Bootstrap is looking around with half-fearful wonder.

"What is this place?"

"I lived here for almost a year", Norrington says pensively, leaning on the rail. "And had friends here before that."

"And both walk among others", Norrington adds, eyes going wistful. "Perhaps Calypso will be here. She was before."

Norrington glances at him sideways.

"If it occurs to her you might be here? She will be."

Norrington salutes.

"Consider it done, Captain."

Norrington looks down at the sword, stock-still for a long few moments, then reaches out both hands to take it.

"I thought I'd seen the last of this", he says quietly.

"In that case..." Norrington says, still studying the sword laid across his hands, "perhaps I could take it off your hands?"

"No, Captain", Norrington says, sheathing the sword decisively. "Thank you."

He likes that sword.

"Oh, I should think a day will be enough, if she's here at all", Norrington drawls. "And if she's not... then perhaps next time."

It's all just a matter of timing, after all. Sooner or later, they'll find her.
