i went to flint pride yesterday and it was great!! i went with my boyfriend and best friend. everyone had flags and a lot of people wore them as capes, it was cute. i got a bisexual flag and wore it as a cape and my best friend got a transgender flag she wore as a cape. there were lots of performances, there were singers and rappers who spoke about the flint water crisis and black lives matter and police brutality, there were a lot more trans/non-binary resources than i expected which was really cool!! and there drag queens and dancers, and the drag queen invited kids to get up on stage and dance too and everyone was just so happy and it was great!!
I made a post the other day about how Flint willingly let Silver rise to power and fully supported him in his new role in season 4, but I only just realised that Flint’s behaviour is sort of mirrored by what Silver says in the 4x09 flashbacks about pride no longer being an issue between the two of them. Meaning they were on the same line regarding this subject. Flint didn’t feel pride in the sense that he didn’t need to have a bigger role than Silver in the war; Silver didn’t feel pride in the sense that he felt he could let part of his guard, the image he was presenting to the outside world, down when he was alone with Flint. There was genuine friendship (at the least) between the two of them, from both sides.
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.”
hey you drew recently flint with a pansexual pride flag, i was just wondering why, i never thought of that possibility!! i mean i was always between him being bi or gay but pansexual never ocurred to me
I haven’t really based it on much, not given it much thought, he just seems like someone who wouldn’t really care? If he sees an attractive person, then that’s what they are, no questions asked. But I think I’d put him as demiromantic too?
People are complicated and are never really either or, or 100% something. Flint seems like one of those.
And bi and pan can be very close depending on how you choose to interpret the sexualities. Bi is liking two (or more) genders, not just men/women. Pan is liking anyone, not basing their attraction to what’s in their pants or what society labels as male or female.
Now in the 1700s he would be seen as a molly, or any other term for gay then. Because bisexuality didn’t have a word and wasn’t seen as a “thing” back then.
This got unnecessarily long, but I hope I answered your question? <3
