i feel so blessed today for the gift that Black Sails has given me: Eme having important lines, Madi and her having long conversations, Max and Eleanor working together. Just women, being badasses, helping each other, and running the show <3
DO NOT BELIEVE THEM. DO NOT. DON’T BELIEVE ANY OF THAT UNTIL AND UNLESS YOU SEE IT ON SUNDAY (or unless you’ve been to the screening). I saw a ‘disappointing’ post and while I did feel so, I won’t believe it.
The multiple Holmes siblings thing won’t make history. Someone fake-shooting himself and coming back to life won’t make history. Someone getting shot and her coming back to life won’t make history. Sherlock getting it on with Molly or Irene or Mary or any woman you can think of from the show won’t make history.
Honestly, we’ve got a Himalayan range of logical evidence that points towards canon Johnlock. No Johnlock = queerbaiting. Plain and simple. Except this show is co-run by an openly gay and married man who actively participates in LGBT+ activism, has some openly LGBT+ cast/crew members (Joe Lidster, Andrew Scott, Eleanor Matsuura, Russell Tovey, Mark Gatiss again, and could very well have more), has taken part in raising money for LGBT+ causes as ‘Team Sherlock’, among so, so much more. I doubt they’d like to make a show that is going for an almighty, massive and elaborate bait. And you choose to be disheartened by a small text post/tweet someone who might have been an anti and/or seeking attention and/or lied about having been to the screening and been in all the aforementioned categories?
King Scott Appreciation Week ♕ Day 5: Favourite relationships → Eleanor & Madi
“We were successful. The war we sought will soon be under way. On our terms. I was there in Nassau, and she’s there. Eleanor is there. In a position of great influence, they say, at the right hand of the governor. She is one of them now. I stood in Nassau and I realized when this war begins, it will have many different meanings, but to you this war is a civil war between two cities you held together for so long with unseen bonds. You will have people on both sides of it. You will have daughters on both sides of it.”
