Do you ever think about what Steinberg and Levine achieved with this character and need to lie down for a while? They took an already iconic character and elevated him to something else entirely. He’s all of these things from Treasure Island throughout the story of Black Sails, to varying degrees, but he’s also so much more complicated than that, and the places where those variations and complexities meet are what make his arc and development so fascinating to watch. Every step of his journey is believable and, even though the man in episode one is almost unrecognisable in comparison to the man at the end, he already had several of Long John Silver’s most fundamental traits right at the beginning. He was almost more Long John Silver before he actually was Long John Silver. The complexity of Flint’s character in this show is clearly astonishing, but they were able to build him from almost the ground up. Their Flint only had to tie in with ghost stories. The way they created their John Silver, who is so recognisable and yet so different at the same time, will forever be amazing to me.
Time for some more whump! It’s Day Two- Hypothermia!
Lance and Keith (read: klance) go to an ice planet.
why do i only ever hurt lance
“Figures,” Lance grumbled.
“Stereotypical ice planet. Why couldn’t the rebels have lived on, I
don’t know, a tropical island? The entire known universe and we can’t
stumble across some beach residents in need of rescue?”
“Lance,” Shiro’s disapproving
voice sounded over the coms. “The two of them gave me their only
ship. Which means we’re helping them. They’re part of a freedom
fighter organization, maybe they can help us.”
“Yeah, okay, but why do I
have to be the one that gets sent down here? I’m from Cuba! This is
way, way below comfortable temperatures for me.”
“Quit whining,” Keith snapped,
glaring at Lance over his shoulder. “Our armor’s designed to keep
us warm, and this is below comfortable for anyone. And pick up
Lance rolled his eyes, but jogged to
catch up to him.
“Sorry, Lance, but the red lion is
the best at withstanding extreme temperatures. And it’s smaller, and
faster than the other lions, so it can better navigate the terrain,”
“Wish I had help navigating the
terrain now,” Lance muttered under his breath. The two of them were
currently struggling through over a foot of snow. “And that doesn’t
explain why I had to bring Keith with me.”
“Because going on solo missions to
unknown locations is how you get killed,” Pidge pointed out. “Star
Wars? Hoth? Luke almost getting annihilated by the abominable
snowman? Any of that ring a bell?”
“Quiznaking ice planets. Why are we
out of the lion anyway, Shiro? Red’s warm. Do you want us to
freeze to death and then have to hide inside the body of a space
camel?” Lance’s voice was dripping with sarcasm.
“What the hell are you
“Star Wars, Keith. Remind me to
marathon it with you when we get back to Earth. My niece loves those
movies, and she’ll eat all the popcorn, but it’s worth it. Trust me.”
“Would you two take this mission
seriously?” Shiro asked. Lance could practically see him rubbing
his temples exhaustedly. “I know it’s not exactly high-stakes
adventure, but these guys saved my life. You’re not going to go
prancing around the planet in your lion and accidentally destroy
“Prancing? Shiro, I don’t
“Lance, look,” Keith interrupted
him and pointed out towards a large stretch of ice before them. It
would’ve been a lake, had the planet not had such low temperatures.
“Pidge, is that the direction we need to go?”
“Yep,” she told them. “The
hideout’s not far from the opposite side.”
Keith sighed. “We’ll have to go
“Woah, what? Keith, that lake is
huge! It’d be so much easier to walk straight across,” Lance
protested. “I’m not about to freeze to death while we take the
“In case you hadn’t noticed, that’s
ice, dumbass. If it can’t support our weight and breaks then
we really could freeze to death! That water’s gotta be a lot
worse than this.”
“I’m not an idiot, Keith, I know
that. Pidge, if I send you a scan can you see if it’ll support us?”
Lance asked. Pidge made a noise of affirmation, and Lance used his
armor’s scanner to send an analysis of the ice to her.
“It looks pretty thick,” she
mused. “I wouldn’t jump up and down or start hacking at it with
your bayards if I were you, but you’ll be able to walk across.”
“See?” Lance smirked at
him. “What’d I tell you? It’s fine.”
“Shouldn’t we, I don’t know, check
the lake? What if there’s a… space octopus in there, or something?
Or a shark? I mean, they wouldn’t normally live in lakes, but this
isn’t Earth so who knows? Are space alligators a thing?” Hunk spoke
so fast it was almost difficult to understand.
“Hunk, you’re rambling,” Lance
observed with a fond smile. “But don’t worry. The top of the lake
is frozen, so they wouldn’t be able to breathe, right? Let alone get
to us. If it makes you feel better, I’ll do a full scan of the lake.”
“Nope. No animals down there,”
Pidge confirmed a few moments later. “Now would you two hurry up
“I still have a really bad feeling
about this,” Keith mumbled.
Lance turned towards him with a grin.
“We are so watching Star Wars together. In fact, we should
see if they have it at the space mall. But sorry, Keith, if you want
to go the long way, be my guest. I’m not going to wait any longer
than I have to.”
“He really is the true pilot of
Red,” Pidge sounded as if she was trying to repress a laugh.
“Impatient as all hell.”
“Hey!” Keith and Lance
exclaimed at the same time.
Pidge snorted. “Just get going
Lance wasted no time in starting out
across the lake. He was several paces ahead of Keith, who still
hesitated to step out onto it. As he was about to continue forward,
Keith stopped in his tracks. He could swear he saw something dark
moving below the ice, but Pidge had scanned the lake for life, hadn’t
she? It must just be his imagination. He started forward again, but
just then the ground shook, and the ice in front of Lance exploded.
He let out a strangled yelp, stumbling
away from whatever had just burst out of the lake. Keith could hear
the frantic voices of the others in his ears, but it all descended
into white noise as he saw the vine that had broken through the ice
wrap around Lance’s legs.
He rushed forward, but it was already
too late. Keith watched as Lance was dragged into the hole made by
the creature, and plunged into the freezing lake.
The water was murky, and dark. Lance
could barely see, all he knew was that something was dragging him
further and further down into the depths. He didn’t have time to
activate his helmet properly before water was rushing into his lungs.
He felt the grip of whatever held him
tightening on his legs, and though he tried to kick he couldn’t break
Lance forced himself not to panic.
Panicking wouldn’t help him. So he collected his thoughts, summoned
his bayard, and pointed it down. He still couldn’t see anything, but
with luck he’d hit the monster, not himself. He moved his finger to
the trigger, aimed for what he hoped wasn’t his leg, and fired.
Judging by the shriek of pain and how
the hold on him loosened, Lance guessed the laser met its mark. He
kicked upwards immediately, swimming quickly to the surface. However,
with limited eyesight and dwindling oxygen, his hands met nothing but
ice. Panic started to overtake him again as he desperately scrambled
to find the hole which he’d fallen into.
Lance was just starting to give up
hope completely when suddenly a hand snagged around his wrist and
yanked him to the side, and up to the surface.
Lance sucked in a breath, coughing the
water out of his lungs as he collapsed onto the ice. His vision was
foggy around the edges, but he could see well enough to notice Keith
kneeling over him, breathing heavily.
“Are you okay?” he demanded, hands
hovering over Lance’s form. “Are you hurt?”
“What—” Lance coughed again.
“What was that… that thing?”
“I… I didn’t scan for plants,”
Pidge told him apologetically. “In my defense, I had no idea there
would be some crazy strong… Venus flytrap-ish monster living here.”
“Now will you listen to me
when I tell you something’s a bad idea?” Keith asked, sounding way
to relieved to actually come off as angry.
Lance gave him a shaky smile. “I
c-could ask you the… the same, S-samurai.”. Keith tensed
“Why’s he talking like that?” he
asked. “He’s… breathing weird, too. And shivering. Pidge, what—”
“Keith. Scan. Now.” Pidge’s voice
was suddenly alert, and when Keith complied, she cursed.
“Hypothermia. I should’ve guessed. Keith, get him back to the
castle. He should be fine, but he needs a pod. Allura and I will come
back to the planet in Blue later.”
Keith nodded, picking Lance up in his
arms as if he weighed nothing at all, before rushing towards Red.
“Hang on, Lance. You’re gonna be fine.”
“You.. you were r-right,” Lance
admitted around chattering teeth. “That was a… very b-bad idea.”
His eyes started to slide shut.
“Wh— no, Lance, you have to stay
awake. C'mon, keep your eyes open. We’re almost there.”
“’M sorry, Keith, b-but it’s… it’s
freezing, and you’re r-r-really w-warm,” Lance mumbled, closing his
eyes and leaning his head on Keith’s shoulder. “I think… I’ll
just take a little n-nap.”
“Lance, no, you’ve got to—”
Keith started insistently, but Lance had already passed out in his
Lance fell unceremoniously out of the
healing pod, but was luckily caught before he collapsed onto the
floor. He looked up to meet Keith’s dark eyes, and promptly groaned.
“So, I guess we had another bonding moment.”
Keith bristled. “That’s all you have
to say? Not ‘thank you for saving my life?’ After your stupid
decision-making skills got you put in a pod for the… how many times
has it been now?”
Lance ignored him. “Where are the
“None of them wanted to stay
overnight, because, again, you’ve been in this pod way too many
times,” Keith told him, unsure if he should point out that Lance
had made no move to step back, so Keith was still supporting the
entirety of his weight.
“And yet you stayed,” Lance
grinned. “Guess I should probably start listening to you, huh?”
Lance’s smile turned quickly into a
smirk. “Well, that’s too bad, since we both know that’s never going
Keith scowled, prepared to drop Lance
onto the floor. He would have to, if Lance hadn’t leaned forward at
that exact moment and kissed him.
It didn’t last long, but Keith was
blushing furiously, anyway. It was nice to see that Lance looked a
little flustered, too, though.
“Thanks,” Lance said softly. “For
saving my life.”
“Um,” Keith started, brain still
trying to understand what was going on. “Did you just— you and I—
is this— what?”
Lance laughed, finally stepping back
from Keith and turning to walk out the door. “I’m going to go get
some food goo, if you’d care to join me.”
Keith watched him go, and stammered
out a few more incoherent sentences before rushing after him.
Summary: Imagine Bill seeing you interact with little Jackson on set and realizing he wants to have kids with you.
A/N: (Y/s/n) = Your Superhero Name, Y’all little Georgie is everything! And I’m not the one to easily find kids adorable or say I’d want a kid like that but oh dear!
“Are you sure you’ll be alright?” Bill asked with an adorable frown as he looked down at you and you chuckled, rolling your eyes.
“Bill you don’t have to worry about me, I already have an amazing company!” you grinned, turning to look at Jackson who was barely able to hold all of the comics in his small hands.
“You two will get along perfectly fine.” he breathed out with a small chuckle and you giggled after looking at your small fan and then back at your boyfriend.
“We already are.” you winked “Come on now, go be a big scary clown and don’t get all messy with the blood, children are not like eating chicken and you know it. Bones are bigger and there usually is a whole lot more blood, cause you practically eat them alive and yeah.” you leaned in and pecked his lips as he laughed at you.
“You’re so weird.” he made a funny face but still looked at you with adoration.
“But that’s why you love me.” you breathed out, your hands resting on his chest “And if you need any tips on red lipstick I am always here, baby.” you winked with a giggle and he chuckled.
“You are… amazing.” he breathed out, cupping your face before fully kissing you on the lips.

and Kyle were sulking in their room, waiting for their annoying babysitter to
arrive. Their parents had gone out for the night and called the babysitter over
on short notice. The boys hated their babysitter; she never let them play video
games or watch the movies they wanted to, and she always made them go to bed
super early. They’d do anything to get rid of her, and thankfully Kyle had
swiped a shriveled monkey’s paw from the flea market his parents had taken them
to last weekend. He had heard the old woman selling the monkeys paws talking
about their wish-granting abilities, so he grabbed one when she wasn’t looking
and planned to use it to get rid of their current babysitter. He pulled it out
from beneath his bed and showed it to his brother.
Jimmy, check this out. This thing is supposed to be able to grant wishes, so I’m
gonna wish for a new babysitter!”
okay,” Jimmy said, scoffing at the thought. He was younger than Kyle, but he
considered himself more realistic than his older brother. “Well, what’re you
waiting for? Make the wish.”
just watch, little bro,” Kyle said, holding up the monkey’s paw. “I wish we had
a babysitter that let us do whatever we wanted!”
words of Kyle’s wish echoed in the room, surprising the boys. Suddenly, the
monkey’s fist closed and disintegrated into dust. The dust slipped through Kyle’s
fingers and began to swirl around the room before enveloping Jimmy. Jimmy
screamed as the dust moved faster around him, tearing his clothes and
transforming them into a plain, white garment that looked suspiciously like a
happen- ack!” As soon as Jimmy opened his mouth, the dust flooded into him and
caused him to cough and gag. He fell onto his back as he caught his breath
again, sputtering out puffs of dust with a few coughs. “What did that thing do
I don’t know. Are you okay?”
think. But what’s with my cloth- ooohhhh!” Jimmy began to moan as he felt his
chest begin to tingle. The two boys looked at Jimmy’s chest as it began to
expand. He threw his arms up as his bones began to crack, growing longer and
wider, and leaving him with a torso that looked like it belonged to someone
much older than he was. His moans grew louder and more feminine as two mounds
of flesh began to protrude from his chest. With a sudden burst, he thrust his
chest forward as two sizable breasts grew beneath his enlarging nipples. The
boys stared at Jimmy’s ample new cleavage as Jimmy continued to moan, his new
breasts sending unknown pleasures coursing through his maturing body.
this happening?” Jimmy screamed, noticing how much older, yet girly, he
know! I’m sorry!” Kyle yelled in panic. “I’m so sorr-“
Jimmy yelled as his legs began to ache. He kicked his legs out in pain as they
extended slightly. He felt another tingling coming from his crotch as it began
to retract between his legs. It felt uncomfortable and pleasurable at the same
time. His heart began to race as his thrashing body caused his breasts to
bounce and jiggle on his chest. The sensations coming from his crotch and chest
began to blend together, sending more orgasmic feelings coursing through his
body. He couldn’t help but moan even more as he continued to grow older and
sexier. He felt his boy parts slip between his legs as a fleshy clit took form,
growing damper by the second. His legs were still aching though, and combined
with the pleasure coursing through his body, the sensations flowing through him
caused him to convulse and kick his legs violently as they snapped and
extended. Each kick added a few inches to his height, while at the same time
inflating his ass. He felt his behind grow enough to raise his lower back off
the floor, his spine cracking and taking on a feminine arch as he grew.
looked at his brother as he continued to grow older and more feminine. He
wanted to cry for help, but as he opened his mouth, all that came out was a
Jimmy moaned between breaths. Kyle couldn’t help but notice how sultry his
little brother sounded now. Kyle himself was just hitting puberty, so seeing
his younger brother turning into such an attractive specimen was making Kyle
exceedingly confused and uncomfortable.
I’m so sorry…” Kyle said on the verge of tears. “I shouldn’t have stolen that
thing. This is my fault.”
wanted to say something to his brother, but he felt his face beginning to
change as his mind began to grow foggy. He felt his hair grow down his neck and
tickle his back, turning a dark blonde in the process. His eyes widened and
slanted as they took on a sultry, alluring appearance. His lips thinned out as
his nose cracked and shrank a bit, planting itself cutely about his mouth. His
face tingled as makeup applied itself to his mature new face. He had aged well
into his twenties in a matter of minutes, and as his new reproductive system
flooded his body with new hormones, he began to have entirely alien thoughts.
He felt his new clit grow damp as memories of cute guys hitting on him entered
his mind. His memories of being the best student in school became memories of
being the sexist girl in school. He wanted to fight it, but as images of jocks
fucking him in the locker room after school flooded his mind, he began to give
in. His clit was so wet and so sensitive, and as he slowly began to rub it with
a manicured hand, his name began to fade. Jimmy slowly turned into Jade as
memories of going to college and meeting her boyfriend formed in the new girl’s
mind. She quickly came and screamed in orgasm as Jimmy embraced his new identity.
The new girl leaned up and stood over Kyle. She stared at the young boy ogling
her exposed crotch and smirked.
took this babysitting job for the easy money, and at least this little brat
never gave her any trouble.
boyfriend is coming over tonight, so I’m gonna go get changed.” She said with
an authoritative tone. “You can play video games or watch TV or whatever. I don’t
care. Just don’t bother me unless it’s an emergency. And don’t tell your
parents, unless you want me to take your video games away.”
Jimmy? Are you still in there?” Kyle said hesitantly. “Please, little bro…”
Jade didn’t respond. She simply walked into another room and began to change
into a bikini for her boyfriend. This kid’s parents were loaded and had a pool
in the backyard, so she and her boyfriend were going to have a ball with their private pool for the night. She loved
her job, and while Kyle was still confused and traumatized by what he just
witnessed, at least his wish was fulfilled. Just not exactly how he expected it, or wanted it, to be.

Eddie Kaspbrak had never really been the biggest fan of the beach.
skin was far too sensitive for the sun, he tended to find himself short
of breath after swimming for too long, and sand just plain freaked him
out. He didn’t know what number of things could be crawling around in
it, or what sorts of disgusting bacteria. But this was where he had chosen to go
today. Anyway, it was summer. And he may never go on a vacation to a place like
this again. So he may as well make the best of it. He’d lathered up a
good amount of sunscreen on his pale freckled skin, sunglasses and a
large sunhat giving him extra protection - they were his mother’s idea -
and he sat for a long while under the shade of his umbrella. He
listened to the sound of the waves rolling in and out, closing his eyes.
It wasn’t until he heard some other teenagers having a nice time in the
water that he thought maybe he was brave enough to get in too.
He would just be in and out.
removed his hat and sunglasses, standing to stretch, and immediately
feeling the heat from the sun as he approached the water. The first
thing that he noticed was how cold it was. But he was rather graceful
once he was all the way in, swimming out until his toes didn’t touch the
sandy floor anymore, and then moving back into the shallow water
again. He did this a bit indecisively a few times, getting further out
with each ‘lap’ to make himself comfortable.
