What really makes me die a little inside is that when Aurora tells the group that if they step into the light, the world will be saved but they will die, everyone freezes and is like ‘oh shit, now what?’ and LUKE MOVES FIRST.
Not Emmy the badass or the incredibly gentlemanly and selfless Professor, or even Sycamore who hardly has any hope for the future at this point, but THE 11 YEAR OLD BOY.
Dear, sweet Luke, who has his whole life ahead of him, is the quickest to throw all that away because he recognises that it’s for the greater good, and this is something bigger than him. He is the most selfless of all.
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?
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
