DescriptionThe Scoobies can be a pretty clueless bunch sometimes, well acquainted with, shall we say, the River De Nile. What would happen if one of them acquired -- through inheritance, loot from a demon's lair, on the shelf in a junk shop, whatever -- Jack Sparrow's "broken compass", which always points to what a person's heart wants most?

(At some point shortly thereafter, they must be told the story behind it, or find its legend in Giles' books, or hear its history from Anya, or some other means of revelation so there's no mistake about its purpose, though they don't have to reveal ownership of the compass to everyone else).

At what point in canon is the compass acquired? What disaster would be altered or averted-- or maybe even *caused*-- if only the angsty Scooby (Buffy, Willow, and Xander are all excellent candidates at various points in canon, but other character choices are welcome) were made to recognize the truth by its choice of direction and chose another path than they took on the show?

Can include other crossovers, and can include more of "Pirates of the Caribbean" than just the compass and its history, though that is not necessary.
