Aesthetic: Ezra Wake (’The New World’, Black Sails fanfiction by @e-sebastian)
“He is slim, with dark eyes and hair. He has a nose that hooks a little. His face is strange in a way that James does not wish to examine. Not displeasing, just out of place.“ (https://archiveofourown.org/works/8254777)
This is my first fooray into trying to make graphics in, well, years - not sure whether I like it or not but, alas, here it is, a little Ezra Wake aesthetic (and a chance to use that shiny new tag for the fanfiction, #bsnw!). A little gift both for the writer of the story and for my fellow TNW enthusiasts ;)
If there was ever a song to lyrically exemplify exactly how Rick felt about Michonne, it’s Dru Hill’s “Beauty.”

“Didn’t take much time to think about it, but I didn’t want to move too fast. 'Cause I knew that when I saw you again, that I wouldn’t want to let you pass. My eyes have seen the glory and the coming of your smile. So I swear if you ever come round again, please stay for a while.
“She walks by me every day; her and love are the same. The woman that’s stolen my heart–and beauty is her name. I’m hoping I can make you mine ‘for another man steals your heart. And once this beauty is mine, I swear we will never be apart.
“You are so beautiful. When I’m down and out, I never seem to get tired of your love. 'Cause you are wonderful; you’re wonderful. I’m just dying to make you see anything you want inside your heart, you can find right here inside of me…”
