Black Sails Headcanon // How they hug you and some other comforting things (characterxreader)
Flint It’s not really a hug but he places his hands on both of your shoulders to comfort you as he tries to look into your eyes whether you look at him or not. He tells you it’s going to be fine, how he will fix everything and make you some tea if you’d like. But if you get to give him a hug first he responds to it immediately like he’s been waiting for one for a long time.
Silver He doesn’t really understand hugging and won’t make the first move because he’s afraid he might do something wrong. Even though he could be the one that needs it even more than you, there’s nothing selfish about his hug and he makes sure you are okay by not letting go before you do. After, he asks if he can get you anything or if you need anybody killed.
Billy When he gives you a hug to comfort you, he tries to cover you as much as he possibly can with his embrace. His hands are stretched all across your back and he will place his chin on top of your head if he can. You feel like he would probably wrap his legs around you as well if you let him. To make you really feel safe he will pull in every person passing by to join the hug. Usually it’s Ben Gunn and he’s just being very careful trying not to crowd you overmuch.
Max She cups your face in her hands the second she sees that something is not right and she will pull you into a hug right there and then not caring who is there to see it because in that moment you are all that matters. She calmly explains to you how she will take care of you and how everything will be better tomorrow. She doesn’t let her voice break from the soothing kind tone as she takes you to her room and stays there with you as long as is needed.
Eleanor She is very careful not to say or do anything that might make you feel worse and for that reason she doesn’t really know what to do. But if she ever sees you being sad or hurt she will march over to you and pull you in for a hug without even thinking about it. She clings to your shoulders and lets you bury your face in her neck. If you want to be left alone she will make everybody leave the room and she will bring you as many pillows and blankets as you need. She tells you how she will use her shotgun to blast a hole in the next person who tries to hurt you.
Charles He makes sure nobody will come to disturb you when he’s comforting you by having men outside the door on watch. He sits next to you and makes you lean your back against his chest as he strokes your hand or your hair. Whatever it takes, he tries to make you forget the thing that was making you feel down and he will suggest having a sword fight with him or sailing to a nearby island you’ve not visited before.
Anne Even though she doesn’t get to your personal space, she lets you know she’s there for you with compassionate looks. She will also let you hold her hand and she will sit next to you until you feel better. If anybody is trying to approach you with anything but love, she jumps up in front of you to be your bodyguard. If you ask for a drink she will get somebody else to fetch it for you so she doesn’t have to leave your side.
Jack Jack hugs you casually whether you’re feeling down or not. Sometimes it’s a pat on the back and other times he pulls you so close he can rest his head on your shoulder. He’s overall very touchy in the most purest way - like he will tap you on your shoulder or pull your sleeve to get your attention, or when he’s handing you a bottle or a glass he places his hand over yours to make sure you won’t drop it.
