Ok so it’s pride month ad I’m going to open my big mouth for once.
I just finished the new season of Orange is the new black (no spoiler don’t worry) so I was scrolling the tag. You should know that I don’t ship Alex/Piper but everyone is free to if you want to that’s not what I want to rant about.
All the posts I saw so far in the tag about this relationship tag it “lesbian” and ok? Alex is a lesbian so tag it away but is everyone forgetting that Piper is under the Bisexual umbrella?? She was clearly in a very serious relationship with at least a man. They are not a “lesbian couple” they are a same sex couple and what you’re doing is bi erasure.
Same thing could be said about for example captain Flint from Black Sails, yes he like men, yes he is/was in love with thomas (some may argue with Silver too) but he was also with Miranda, a woman, he’s under the bisexual umbrella thank you very much.
We have so few bisexual characters and you’re throwing their identity under the bus and it’s pissing me off.
for the fic prompt meme: 25. “My nightmares are usually about losing you.” silverflint (kill me with the angst Gemma ♡)
Ack, sorry dear, I don’t know if this is as angsty as you would have liked (although lbr anything set during canon has angst inherent). Coming at you with some more of that weird, intense intimacy! Hope you like it! Set after 3x6
“My nightmares are usually about losing you.”
Flint finds Silver right where Madi said he’d be – lying in a private hut, alone, attempting to glare his pain into submission and failing.
Silver glances up when Flint arrives. He looks startled, and exhausted. “When did you get back?”
Flint approaches the bed, trying to keep his features unconcerned. He’d been on the last boat launched from the Walrus when they made it back to Maroon Island. Even from here, he could hear his crew outside the hut in camp, where they’d been talking and eating and settling in for almost an hour now. He needs Silver focused and able for the days ahead, but he also needs him not mad and defensive. “Not long ago,” Flint says. “How are you feeling?”
Silver’s face changes. The bleary-eyed weariness melts to anger as quickly as dusk becomes night. “I fucking told her not to tell everyone –”
“She didn’t tell anyone,” says Flint. “She told me.” Madi is a smart woman, who knew when to pick her battles, and this is something Flint would have figured out on his own anyway. “Answer my question.”
oooh hey have you ever watched Black Sails at all? Cuz I'd love to submit the main character Flint for the pride month thing! He's Canonly Bi and its great :D
hey! sorry it took me so long to get back to you anon! I have actually never seen Black Sails (pirates have never struck my fancy) but… i went and did some looking into this show and Flint and… wow… so I’m going to start watching this weekend…
also you can track the tag here! (i will post asap!)
I’m so over reading outsiders opinions of my city. Done.
Why? Because they’re the opinions of people who are reading us like a statistic rather than the people we are. I have lived in flint since my birth, as have my parents, grandparents and one great grandparent. We are all living, none of us have been stabbed or raped. I have had my car broken into once, by a thirteen year old boy who ran away from his home is Davison.
I’m done reading that flint is so scary to walk around in and that everyone should be weary of what they do. You should do that anywhere! Shitty people do shitty things! But they live in every fucking city out there.
Sure we have a high crime rate, but that doesn’t mean the city is a desolate piece of hopeless shit.
Also, the people here are mostly good people. Brought up on hard work and sacrifice, our parents and grandparents worked hard for GM, well a lot did, and it hit our city hard when we lost those jobs. But we are people full of pride and respect with a few bad apples.
