i dare you to show how you pay attention

It really pisses me off, when the black sails fandom doesn’t agree with where the story is going, so they claim it’s just bad writing. Like, how dare you? I get the story is dark and violent and the end is probably going to be a shitshow, but that’s what we’ve been in for since the beginning. Besides have you been paying attention to what sort of shit is being aired lately?

Never before have I seen a show, that would have such deep and comprehensive writing, such involvement with its characters and their development. Even the good stuff I’ve watched had many unnecessary scenes just to pass time, thoughtless writing or bad acting at some point, but with black sails every single detail is always perfect.

The writing of the female characters is the best I’ve seen so far. They could have written them as most similar shows do - as strong cunning wives who are in charge of men, without them knowing it (alright, maybe except for grandma Guthrie). But no, they fucking LEAD THE SHOW, with no compromises. (Max creating herself with nothing else but her wits and refusing to stand behind a husband for appearances. Anne being a fierce pirate who can literally kill anyone that gets in her way- and they are still sooo much more than that)

And Madi… her decision not to take the deal even if that threatens Silvers life- it wasn’t shown as a sacrifice nor as a lack of affection towards him. If it were truly badly written, she would feel the same as silver does, but she is much stronger than him. She is simply someone who believes in freedom and would selflessly give everything up, not only for the benefit of her people, but for everyone who was opressed by the colonial rule. Something that is completely incomprehensible to a colonial shit like rogers.

The writers of black sails did not just try to include diversity in the show for ratings or baiting groups of audiences- they’ve built the whole damn story upon it.

The writers and the cast have brought characters and their stories to life in a way i have never seen before, and I’m really afraid that I will never see anything quite like it again.

So, no matter how this ends i would like to say how much I appreciate this show (and the amazing cast of course) and I hope everyone else in this fandom does too.

anonymous asked:

Can you do a headcannon where the mc ex boyfriend comes to visit her (they broke up because she was moving) and how the guys of DDIWT react to meeting him.

Here you go, anonnie! I truly hope this was to your liking! <3
—————————————————————————————————-

Ichigo: Ichigo would honestly be a little hostile and cold towards him, maybe even to the point where you would have to force him to be at least a tiny bit diplomatic. He’d be like a little sulking boy, sometimes glaring at your ex boyfriend when he wasn’t looking or paying attention.

He too would be more daring than usual; kissing, hugging and holding you close whenever he got the chance to. He wanted to show your ex that he absolutely stood no chance at winning you back because, you were all his now and there was no way in hell would let you go now. He had waited 10 years too long.

Takeshi: he’d be quiet, too quiet. He would simply shake your ex boyfriend’s hand, mutter a simple “hey” and that would be it. He’d do his own things like reading or eating BUT, he’d be extra clingy and “lovey dovey”. He would hold your hand tightly, wrap his arms around your shoulder and even embrace you for no apparent reason.

His quietness would be disturbing but his sudden display of affection would be even more weirder(not that you were complaining).

The others would tease him but Takeshi didn’t care. He wanted to show your ex exactly who you belonged to.

Ryuzo: Ryuzo would be his cheery self, talking to your ex and making him feel welcome but there would still be something off about him though. He’d be a little colder than usual(something only you could notice, mainly because your ex would simply think this was how Ryuzo normally was) and a tad bit more protective over you too.

He’d make sure he got everything for you, never letting your ex get to opportunity to help or assist you with anything. He’d casually join in a conversation between you and your ex, sometimes even changing the topic and pulling one of you away from the other slowly.

Ryuzo would try his best not to show that he was jealous or unhappy about your ex coming to visit since he didn’t want to upset you but no matter what, he still couldn’t help it. He loved you too much and the fact that you might fall in love with your ex again scared the living hell out of him.

Haruki: Haruki would be his diplomatic, friendly self but it would be quite clear there was something bothering him. Of course, he wouldn’t tell you what it was since he truly didn’t want to spoil your day but by the little things he did, it was obvious he wasn’t comfortable with your ex being there.

He’d sit a little closer to you, hands wrapped around your waist while listening a little too intently to the conversation between you and your ex boyfriend.

Unlike Ichigo, he wouldn’t be outright protective or so but he sure as hell would have his own way in showing that you were his and his only.

Rihito: Rihito would be downright lovey dovey and sometimes a little sarcastic. He’d make sure to make your ex uncomfortable by kissing, hugging and doing the sweetest yet most embarrassing things to you.

He wouldn’t be cold or unfriendly(more like the opposite) but there would somehow be an air of uneasiness and tension floating around, causing your ex to feel extremely weird.

Rihito wouldn’t do or say anything to offend your ex(except for the occasional sarcastic remarks) but he also wasn’t afraid to show that you were now his and that wasn’t going to change anytime soon.

Johji: Johji would most likely be diplomatic and nice towards your ex, even portraying like he wasn’t affected by his presence.
However though, deep down, he would be a tiny bit insecure; Especially since your ex was obviously younger than him. He’d try his best to keep his composure and act like how he normally would but at the end of the day, he couldn’t help but be a little more lovey dovey towards you.

He’d casually wrap his arms around your shoulder as the lot of you spoke, sometimes whispering sweet nothings into your ear and kissing you on the forehead.

Johji would definitely try not to be overly mushy but there would be times where he simply couldn’t help it. He wanted to show your ex that you’ve moved on and that your new boyfriend was well, him.
