For some time now I have been holding my entire world together with both hands. Keeping my men in line, seeing to their needs, and the only way that endures is if I look the part… So I will endure this the way I have been enduring it.
I’ve been informed that today is “Talk Like a Pirate Day,” so remember kids:
“[Those who benefit from an unjust society] paint the world full of shadows, and then tell their children to stay close to the light. Their light. Their reasons, their judgements. Because in the darkness, there be dragons. But it isn’t true. We can prove that it isn’t true. In the dark, there is discovery. There is possibility. There is freedom…in the dark. Once someone has illuminated it.”
what’s my favorite tv genre you ask? well i sure do love Eighteenth Century Period Dramas In Which The First Season Has A Gay Subplot But Predominantly Appeals To A Heterosexual Audience But Then Season Two Snatches The Rug Out From Under You And Makes Everything Gay
I knew that James Flint was a gay icon but I did not realize that literally the ENTIRITY of Black Sails rests on a queer man’s violent and unforgiving rage about homophobia and I’m like. Y’all. Yaaaaaaall. Holy shit y’all, holy shit. Black Sails is a show about a man who loved another man saying the way they were treated was so wrong that the only recourse is blood and vengeance. Fuckin. Fucking gggood.
