I really like how that story is going so far, and I felt like doing something for it. Sure, I should’ve gone with RoyEd but then, Lan Fan is just too great to ignore. No, she hasn’t appeared on the story, yet, but I know that when she does, she will be awesome!
I’ve posted this before, but I like this version better.. The colors look more fit to the drawing.
It’s been so long since I last drew him.. I missed it 😌💚 I think Zoro might be my ultimate favorite character of all times.
Elizabeth Swann is easily one of the very top few fictional characters I consider a role model alright.
And if you think about it, she was more of a pirate than Will Turner like the movies led us to believe.
She was resourceful as all hell. Almost the exact same to Jack, but with some differences. While jack had the ability to see things 10 steps ahead and make fully thought out plans and be able to just watch everything fall into place, Elizabeth had the ability to adapt and evolve with new obstacles. She could maneuver situations in ways that almost no other character could. She even outplayed Jack fucking Sparrow. On more than one occasion if I might add.
She was well educated. And not like with maths and sciences and philosophy and shit like that. I mean educated in the way that she understood exactly how others thought and how they were most likely to act, and played them accordingly. She had educated herself on the pirates code well before even thinking of setting foot on a pirate vessel, and knew it well enough to save her neck or someone else more than once.
Now on to the more “pirate-like” shit.
She didn’t originally know sword fighting, but in the first movie she goes to grab a decorative sword off the wall in her manor (which doesn’t work, for comedies sake, but moving on) with the intention of fighting the pirates ransacking her home. Not run, like literally everyone else in the manor, but actually fight. Two men versus one untrained woman I might add. What a queen. But during the second movie we learn that Will taught her the art of sword fighting. And she very clearly was an excellent student, for throughout the next two movies we see her go toe-to-toe with several badass and notorious pirates, and easily hold her own. And if she didn’t have access to a sword, she made do and made a weapon out of whatever was near her at the time.
When her wedding got crashed and she and Will arrested, Will was told to find Jack in order to gain them both freedom again, and so he set off to do so. Elizabeth on the other hand, with some assistance, was able to escape prison, and then proceeded to hold the man who arrested them at gunpoint until he gave her signed and sealed papers containing the pardon they needed.
She also later figured out that the Kracken was really after jack, and knowing he wouldn’t give himself up for the good of the others, she kissed him long enough as a distraction at the last minute to handcuff him to the mast, effectively becoming the only person to be able to kill Jack Sparrow.
She also knew the power of carefully made lies and crafted deception. She knew being a woman could get her certain places and certain perks, so she made it work in her favor. She knew the same but with being a man, so she figured out how to also make that work in her favor. She was mistake for a feared sea goddess, and instead of denying it, she rolled with it knowing it would be to her benefit. Which it did, considering it then aided in her achieving the status as captain of a pirate ship later on, and in effect earning her a place as a Pirate Lord. And then was voted in as the Pirate King.
She used every piece of knowledge and tools accessible to her as intelligently as she could. She crafted lies and deceptions to work to the advantage of herself and/or her companions. And she never apologized for these actions or for being anyone but herself.
Will thought and planned more in reference to his heart or sometimes rash feelings. Elizabeth was an analyzer and thought and planned through both logic and impeccable gut feeling.
Elizabeth Swann was one of the best pirates in this whole series, and no one can tell me any different.
literally everything I want is more queer literature. crime novels where two lesbians solve mysteries together, one of them is trans, they gradually fall in love and move in together. fantasy where the agender knight rescue the demigirl princess and they become best friends and spend the rest of their life travelling the kingdoms writing books. stories of badass ace and aro pirates saving the world by mistake, genderfluid wizards who accidentally release an ancient spirit and then gather all their friends to contain it again, demi chosen ones who end up realising they don’t need a relationship to be happy, bi scavengers hunting space ships for parts they can sell so they can survive, non binary scientists building robots in a futuristic realm, trans space diplomats trying to achieve intergalactic peace. stories about gay writers and lesbian painters and loving yourself as you are. happy endings and good representation. more literature for, about and by queer people, that’s my aesthetic.
Ching Shih was one of the most powerful pirates in history, terrorizing the China Sea in the early 19th century. Her fleet included more than 300 junks and 40,000 pirates. Though she challenged the Qing Dynasty and the great British and Portuguese empires, she remained undefeated and was one of the few pirates to ever retire from piracy.
Okay honestly I know Legends has been awesome in providing crack episodes to us but really they’re missing out on some great stuff:
It’s great and all that they’re traveling to different places but when are they gonna travel to ancient Greece? Or Rome???? GIVE IT TO ME.
Forget space pirates give me pirates pirates.
You KNOW there’d be a badass lady pirate and Sara def is into her.
Mick is probably made captain of a pirate ship somehow.
Seriously. I just - cannot believe that they put the historical periods into a montage (besides Camelot). Just give me ALL the historical periods and “Sometimes I Remember I’m A Historian” Nate going “mmm….not historically accurate.”
What’s that? Them going into space and fighting/being friends with aliens?
Ik we kind of went into it in Invasion but like, let’s make it more explicit this time.
LET JAX KISS A CUTE ALIEN 2K17.
@hedgiwithapen has de-aged headcanons like??? Imagine teen Martin comforting 3 year old Jax and then they merge by accident and now you have a 3 year old Firestorm lighting shit on fire while teenage Mick finds more stuff for them to blow up.
Good god I’d watch a WHOLE episode of toddlers running the Waverider and ykw?? It probably wouldn’t be that different.
POWERSWAP POWERSWAP POWERSWAP
Fine okay so this REALLY only works with Firestorm, Nate, and Amaya but it’d be fun, or if the team somehow found themselves with each other’s weapons I’d start laughing.
Amaya and Sara can now merge which is great.
Ray is left alone on the ship and is like “OH SWEET I GET TO BE CAPTAIN AGAIN”.
Jax has Mick’s heat gun and Mick has the steel powers and both are thriving.
Nate gets Amaya’s powers but for some reason can’t figure it out and ends up running away from danger half the time.
Stein grabs the atom suit and for all his knowledge can’t figure out how to use it, and ends up destroying it.
Mick laughs because he remembers Ray told him an idiot could use it.
Jax and Rip probably swap and they’re like “………….great”.
“If you damage my body I’m killing you Rip.” “No worries, Mr. Jackson.”
Nate and Ray swap but they’re pretty much the same person so does it even make a difference lmfao.
Somehow Stein/Amaya/Gideon all swap and now Gideon is in Amaya’s body, Amaya is in Stein’s body, and Stein is an AI and he’s startled but now keeps annoying people by popping up with his unwanted opinions all the time.
HORROR AU!!!! GHOSTHUNTING ON THE WAVERIDER!!!
It all starts when Ray Palmer and Nate Heywood, Horror White Boys ™ bring a Ouija board on the ship.
Ray thinks it’s ridiculous and Nate just laughs because he doesn’t believe in it so both are down to play it.
Sara doesn’t know if she believes or not but honestly she thinks she can kick a demon’s ass so it’s okay.
Stein and Mick probably end up possessed.
Actually tbh maybe this wouldn’t happen because Jax is smart and would break the board.
He probably does this every time Ray & Nate bring something stupid on board. “Oh a tape that kills you if you watch it? Yeah okay HOW ABOUT NO”.
Oh you went to an antique shop and found this creepy puppet??? “Nope, nope, nope, not today. Hell no, you two are out of your minds, get that shit away from me, nOOOOPEEEEEE-”
In which the two most widely known pirates fight for treasure and compete for dominance over the seven seas. I see it as kind of a rivals/enemies AU..
- Ladybug is widely known for helping all of the small, rural towns by pillaging rich people and trading to the poor towns for cheap(a robin hood sort of deal), she is a widely loved and welcomed pirate around many rural parts
- Chat Noir escaped his life as a noble/prince sort of deal to live the free, unrestricted life of a badass pirate. nothing to his name but the noble seas and an infamous reputation. He enjoys the lifestyle, and badgers Ladybug’s fleet/competes with them to pillage all of their treasures, just for the adrenaline.
- Both end up meeting on accident in civilian clothes, while trying not to be recognized while getting supplies for their ships. Marinette ends up getting a soft spot for him, and he’s oblivious, but they always grab supplies and run into each other on the same few islands by some miraculous coincidence.
- Hawkmoth/Gabriel is searching avidly for his son, putting all the blame on these pirates in the belief that they kidnapped his son. He lost his wife to sickness first, and Adrien ran away because he couldn’t take the loneliness or knowledge of his eventual (and more than probable) betrothal to Chloe, another noble
- Chat won’t stop bothering Ladybug because he’s head over heels for her, and although he enjoys stealing her valuables and victories, he won’t land a killing blow on even one of her crew members, as is his crew’s policy
-Nino is Adrien’s first mate, and Alya is Marinette’s, and their crews are divided of who is in their class
