Pirates of the Caribbean is a canon and multibillion-dollar franchise derived from a movie series, which was in turn derived from a Disney theme park ride. The fact that the series is good (or maybe just the first movie is good, depending on who you ask) is a small miracle, given that unlikely origin story. Various supplemental novels and games have been released as well.
It is set in an indeterminate time in the Golden Age of Piracy, in a universe where the myths and legends sailors tell are actually true. This includes things like ghost/zombie pirates, cursed Aztec gold, Davy Jones, the Kraken, the Edge of the World, and the Fountain of Youth.
The mini for PotC is the Misspelled Monkey. They appeared in the Official Fanfiction University of the Caribbean Islands. (The only surviving fragment can be read here.)

Fanfic Explosion Edit
Girl meets man.
Girl meets boy.
Girl meets the passage of time.
Man proposes to girl, despite an age difference that would have even a fairly liberal modern audience flinging their hands up in horror. Girl takes death-defying plunge to escape said proposal.
Girl is rescued from both ocean and bodice by scurrilous pirate.
Girl is kidnapped by scurrilous undead pirates with a hankering for really tacky jewelery.
Boy and scurrilous pirate set off to rescue girl.
Girl meets undead monkey. Fangirls swoon.
Plot happens, yada yada, blah blah blah, implausible fight scenes, etc, etc.
Boy declares undying love for girl. (Boy's actions, however, suggest undying love for scurrilous pirate—or so say the slash fans.)
Scurrilous pirate sails into sunset, boy and girl snog, spurned man is woeful but honorable in defeat. Cue funky theme tune and the creation of approximately seventeen million rabid fangirls.
Missions in this Continuum Edit
All reports are listed alphabetically by agent name in the case of agents with multiple missions or by mission name.
Agents Specialized in this Continuum Edit
Agents are considered specialized in a continuum when they have handled at least three missions in the canon. Most of these agents are also active/specialized in other continua. It is often not the agents who decide where their specialty lies, but the Flowers that keep assigning missions to them.
