I’VE BEEN LIVING IN DARKNESS

I just watched Black Sails s02e05 and I’m speechless, amazed, shaken to my very soul. After 25 years living in this planet I’ve finally met God and his face is that of Toby Stephens. Because if the fact that Captain James McGraw, a complex and badass queer pirate, has the leading role in a show like Black Sails isn’t proof enough that God exists, then I don’t know what it is.

I DID NOT KNOW THIS WAS A POSSIBILITY, I DID NOT KNOW THERE WERE PEOPLE OUT THERE TAKING REAL RISKS WHILE I WAS WATCHING FUCKING GAME OF THRONES.

I’d like to thank every person involved in the making of this show for making it possible, also tumblr for making me acquainted with it and to my dear friend who recommended it to me and said “No, it’s not queerbait”. You’ve restored my faith in humanity, I do not know how I managed to live in ignorance for years but I’m finally here, Black Sails has entered my life and I’VE BEEN BLESSED with its many fascinating queer characters and amazing storytelling.


PD: I will forever be grateful for casting in this particular roles men that have starred in adaptations of two of my favourite novels, Jane Eyre and Persuasion, it couldn’t have been more perfect.
