Roommates 288 - Drown by AsheRhyder Roommates 288 - Drown by AsheRhyder
In which James' attempts to do the good thing get him into trouble,

OR

In which the truth hurts.


This may require some explanation, because it references some obscure 'canon'. D*sney has a series of books called the Young Adventures of Jack Sparrow. In one of the books, we run into James' father, Admiral Lawrence Norrington, and young James. (Ironically, I ran into this book AFTER putting young James into the comic as a crybaby, which was corroborated by his portrayal in the book.) During a fight with the pirates, James falls off the ship and is rescued by Jack's father. Admiral Norrington, in a display of fantastic parenting, promptly tells James that he should have drowned rather than be saved by a pirate. I'm estimating James was probably... somewhere between six and eight at this time.

Yes, you heard me.

This is D*sney canon.

This is one of the seeds at the heart of my portrayal of James.

Norrington belongs to Disney, Bruckheimer, and Davenport.
Admiral Norrington belongs to Disney and Kidd.
??? belongs to ???

Ok so I honestly feel bad for Jamie but I'm kinda confused as too whats happening. Is the young boy James and the kinda ghostly figure his father or is it just some kind of dream cause considering that he's friends with Jareth anything (and by anything I mean ANYTHING) can happen.

There was a series of novels (aimed for kids) called the Young Adventures of Jack Sparrow (or something along those lines; it's been years and my memory is terrible at titles). In them, we got a glimpse of a Kid version of James running into (probably somewhere in his early teens) Jack Sparrow. Long story short, in the book, James gets saved by Jack, and James' father berates him for it, saying he should have drowned rather than be saved by a pirate.

That's what he's remembering here - the lack of faith/support.

Okay, this almost makes me wish that Papa Norrington came back as a ghost into the comic... just so they can call the Ghostbusters in to beat up the guy. Because dead in canon is too nice of a fate for this jerk. No one gets to be mean to James and gets away with it. The karma of the universe demands vengeance!

If anyone's interested, here are the exact words Lawrence Norrington used: "Saved by a pirate, James.  You stupid brat.  You should have let yourself drown, boy.  I would rather that than a Norrington smeared with the taint of being indebted to a pirate!"

... *drowns in feels*

It's always James isn't it?!? Trying to do good but NOPE not happening for him. I think we need to call a meeting of the Oh No Jamie! Club.
Hmmm... I though at first the kid was being forgotten/not believed in with his comment of not believing in James but his bringing up the memmories of his father's A+ parenting makes me think otherwise. I think that maybe like a dementor he makes you relive the worst moments of your life. I don't know WHAT he is but that's what I think he does. Hopefully, the others get away before it gets them too but I have a feeling they won't and knowing their backstories... it won't be pretty. Jareth, I hope you know what you are doing...
