oh john xd

I totally forgot to make this a part of my earlier post, for those of you who were in the Black Sails fandom who’ve been here since season 1 (because I’m way late to the party), was there ever any speculation that Max is actually Silver’s wife of African decent as described in Treasure Island?

It’s not ideal, definitely not, and this IS NOT what I personally want, I am still hoping beyond hope that Madi somehow magically escaped the fire, and that after more years of pirating away, trying to frustrate the English as well as they can, Madi and John settle down (with James). Max gets to carry on sitting in her fucking chair.

But I was just thinking… If Madi is really gone (which is making me upset just thinking about it) and it came down to surviving this way or facing arrest, if it was between fighting or letting it all go, would they do it? Could they do it?

They wouldn’t even be married, just a facade to keep them hidden. I was just thinking about tragic endings, and how Max and Silver’s stories have paralleled one another’s since the beginning, going right up to this last episode in which they both lose lovers. Imagine how sad it would be that after everything that’s happened to them, they kind of end up back as they were before.

Then again I do doubt that they would be able to stand each other for more than 5 minutes, they’ve never been what you’d consider friends, let alone being able to run a tavern together. Ohh in fact, I will take this as proof that Madi is alive because there’s no time to force in another character who Silver suddenly decides to settle with! Then with the last conversation with Eleanor on her mind:

“One can be happy that way can’t they? A life of isolation and uncertainty as long as it is lived with someone you love… And who loves you back. It is possible isn’t it?”

“it is.”

Madi will tell John that he is enough for her, and that when this is over she will go with him - nothing like nearly dying to make you rethink your life after all. I mentioned in my last post about how I think Madi is thinking of a life with John during this conversation, and I am even more sure now re-watching this scene. Madi’s eyes keep drifting away from Eleanor, and then at the end of their conversation Madi looks down and smiles, as if she is thinking of something/someone else. The life Eleanor describes would fit perfectly as well - Madi would be isolated not from the mainland/cities but from her own people, uncertain of the future because what happens if she and John are discovered etc.


okay but like don’t even try to tell me this isn’t the most beautiful cast ever

  • *in bed, at 221B*
  • Sherlock: *softly* ...then there's 42. MO, Molybdenum. The free element, a silvery metal with a gray cast in appearance, has the sixth-highest melting point of any element. Molybdenum-containing enzymes are by far the most common catalysts used by some bacteria to break the chemical bond in atmospheric molecular nitrogen, allowing biological nitrogen fixation.
  • Sherlock: ...
  • Sherlock: That *gently prods Molly's stomach* my darling, will be your first word. Molybdenum. Not just because your mother's name is in there. Sort of.
  • Baby Holmes: *kicks*
  • Sherlock: Oh, I know. She'll have you saying something like 'metatarsus' or 'coccygeal vertebrae'. I'll save you from that one, don't you worry.
  • Molly: *sleepy* In that case, I'm rescuing her from 'roentgenium'.
  • Sherlock: ...
  • Molly: *giggles* You were talking to her.
  • Sherlock: *swallows* No, that would be ridiculous. She's a foetus.
  • Molly: *rolls her eyes; yawns* Whatever.
  • Sherlock: *smoothing Molly's bump* I suppose I can settle for Daddy.
  • Molly: *smiles* Good *pauses* We're still not calling her 'Holmium'.
  • Sherlock: *smiles* Fine.

anonymous asked:

"It's Valentine's Day. MH" Mycroft texted to his brother thirty minutes before the shops opened. "So?" Sherlock replied. "John will be expecting you to have gotten him something. A card, flowers, chocolates, a giant stuffed animal holding a heart in it's paws, something. MH." "Fine, I'll go get him something. SH." When John gets home Sherlock has purchased him a card and a giant stuffed animal holding a heart. John lets him use it for an experiment the next day because it barely fit in the flat.

Lol! Awww :3
