No one’s past is that unremarkable. Not unremarkable, just… without relevance. […] I’ve come to peace with the knowledge… that there is no storyteller imposing any coherence, nor sense, nor grace upon those events. Therefore, there’s no duty on my part to search for it. You know of me all I can bear to be known. All that is relevant to be known. That is to say, you know my genuine friendship… and loyalty. 

Flint is brutal and cruel and harsh, but never underestimate his capacity for love. John Silver might be a void with no story โ€” but the experience of being loved in this fierce and destructive way by this fierce and destructive person is Long John Silverโ€™s backstory.

A moment of silence, if you please, for this lady, who also survived a tempest, pirate hunters, jealous captains, mutinous crews, angry lords, a queen, a king, and the goddamn British navy.  As well as intentional beaching via drag anchors, a capsize while careening, a fucking Spanish warship, massive battle damage, the doldrums, running aground on scuttled ships in Nassau Harbor, and being captained by one James Flint.

I give you the Walrus, ladies and gentlemen.

It isn’t utility that’s behind his investment in me, nor necessity, nor dependency. This much is clear to me now.. I have earned his respect. I have earned his trust. I have his true friendship. And so he’s going to have mine. And as long as that is true, I cannot imagine what is possible.

THANK YOU, BLACK SAILS…


For a blue eyed main character whose love for a dark skinned, black woman knows no boundaries.

Silver has sacrificed himself and a treasure for Madi. He isn’t self-conscious or worried about what others think when it comes to his love for Madi. Hell, he even told the Queen Mother! (Thank You Black Sails). 👏🏽🙇🏾‍♀️

Without hesitation or ceremony, Silver has declared his intentions. Mores, laws, haters and a war be damned!

Their’s is a Revolutionary Love. They are a united front, in all things. For them, there is never a question of trust! Iconic. #ThankYouBlackSails

It isn’t utility that’s behind his investment in me, nor necessity, nor dependency. I understand your fear of Flint’s motive, but this much is clear to me now, I have earned his respect. After all the tragedies that man has suffered, the loss of Thomas, the events of Charles Town… I have earned his trust. I have his true friendship, and so he’s going to have mine. And as long as that is true, I cannot imagine what is possible.

I had resigned myself to everyone being dead by the end but somehow I wasn’t prepared for them to lose her.
