great sails

Human Hearts

Human hearts were never meant to tread
upon the tired dust of old familiar streets
they were made to fearlessly sail instead
upon rolling waves of turquoise sheets 

Not designed or created to be tied down
following their herd forever afraid to try 
instinctively yearning for something more
on wings human hearts were born to fly 

Oft disdainful of this world’s tried and true 
human hearts desire the great unknown 
could they be expected to settle for less
each having been conceived in love alone

pass on your way, then, with a smiling face

Black Sails perspectives

What some people seem to have forgotten, is that one of the great things with Black Sails, is the lack of easily labeled good or bad guys. Most of the men and women have blood on their hands, motives that sometimes are just and sometimes not. Not many main or minor characters in Black Sails are truly good or bad and that’s what makes the show so brilliant.

It makes us cheer for people who’ve committed horrible crimes, because we’ve been presented with enough humanity within them, to at least on some level understand their actions, even if we may not agree with their motives or actions. They can be both villains, heroes, cowards and victims. 

In my post about Billy Bones, some people seem to have mistaken my defence for him, as a bashing of Madi and the Marooners Queen, which is just absurd. I merely presented how I think Billy sees it as being the one most concearned of the men he calls brothers. We can understand BOTH Billy and Madi here without picking a side.

I can understand Eleanor, Max and even Woodes Rogers. I can understand Flint and Silver, Vane and Ned Low. I can understand Blackbeard, Rackham and Bonny. I can even understand FUCKING ALFRED HAMILTON, if I choose to see things from his perspective. 

All I wanted to say with my post about people needing to stop bashing Billy Bones for not falling in line, is that no character in this show is a precious cinnamon roll with just causes. It’s very easy for the audience to see the whole picture, but these characters are literally trying to survive in the 1700th century where a physical distance meant a real fucking distance. 

I’ve never bashed Madi. She has her causes and they are no more, no less just than Billy’s, Silver’s or Flint’s. And no, I wont leave her mother out of it, because she still ordered the torture and murder of five survivers from a storm. It’s a harsh world they live in and you’re all welcome to post “To the Maroon Queen’s Defence” or “To Madi Scott’s Defence”. I’m sure their causes are no more, nor less just than Billy Bones’.

And one more thing: I’ve never shipped Silverflint.

... sisterly? LIKE WTF. The writers said "max and eleanor will be more like s1" which means a sexual relationship if not a loving/romantic one. Hannah keeps saying sisterly, so what is it? I'm as baffled and grossed out as you are and just wanted to let you know, you're not alone (even if this fandom is small and mostly composed by m/m shippers). I'm sad that one of my shows wasn't brave enough, but we still got 7 episodes left so I guess I'll just hope and wait. [4/end] Sorry for the long rant

No need to apologize for the rant anon, I’m feeling pretty pent up and emotional too to be honest. I’ll just put your messages in order though so I can answer properly and so people know you bring up very good points!

Unfortunately, Black Sails is a very good show when it comes to storytelling and everything else, but they got themselves into the lgbtq romances (when they didn’t have to) and didn’t know that they would be the ones that actually got them renewed season after season. I know I started watching because of the maxanor teased in the trailers, which turned out to be a very interesting but diasappointing “love” story after ep 2 until season 3 when they actually started speaking again. 

Then, they decided to make Flint queer, which was a very brave move and attracted most of the straight girls who ship m/m, but also queer guys who felt represented, but never actually gave the Flint’s story a chance (like you said, he was the sad gay - even though I think he’s bi). In the same season they started exploring max/anne, playing it like this strong romance but then dropped it? And now they’re in their last season and forgot that none of their characters is straight just for what I feel they’re excusing as ‘the sake of storytelling’.

Which is ridiculous, because I love the show, I love pirates, I love ships but tbh I started watching for maxanor and kept watching for maxanor, and when max basically became eleanor on nassau and understood her motifs to betray her (“that fucking chair speech”) i was amazed, because holy shit what kind of ring composition and 180 is that?! But then they have one of their main actresses downplay the obviously sexual relationship as sisterly? LIKE WTF. The writers said “max and eleanor will be more like s1” which means a sexual relationship if not a loving/romantic one. Hannah keeps saying sisterly, so what is it? I’m as baffled and grossed out as you are and just wanted to let you know, you’re not alone (even if this fandom is small and mostly composed by m/m shippers). I’m sad that one of my shows wasn’t brave enough, but we still got 7 episodes left so I guess I’ll just hope and wait.

Honestly there’s not much I can say to this. It’s a great point and I honestly agree with most, if not all, of what you said. Like, at the end of the day the cast do NOT make the show (thank fucking god for that) and it is the writers who will have the last say on what happens. I’m just gonna wait, and hope.

Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and the earth are signs for a people who use reason.
