Mini-fic rec list for James/Thomas and James/Thomas/Miranda, as there have been a few people looking for recs recently! This is by no means an extensive list in any way, shape, or formย -ย god, there is so much goddamnย fantasticย fic out there, thank you to Black Sails for drawing in such a talented fandom - the following is just a small taste. Positively, there are some underrated gems linked here that deserve some more love. (I always feel bad about rec lists, because I know Iโ€™ve inevitably lost track and missed a lot of great fics/stupidly talented authors, so I want to emphasize again, this is by no means extensive.) Most of these are newer fics from the last few months, but there are some older fics recommended, too.

Iโ€™m furiously kicking myself re: how many drabbles/short fics and drabbles/short fics from authors that just post on Tumblr have disappeared into the horrifying void that is my Tumblr Likes list, I was an absolute idiot for not keeping track of them separately. The following is pretty much just from AO3, as bookmarks made it easier to keep track of everything. (Sub-categories for oneโ€™s Likes outside of tags wouldnโ€™t go astray, Tumblr, just sayinโ€™. ie. categories for fic, meta, soul destroying gifs, etc.)

Nellie, Pit Bull/Basset Hound mix (13 y/o), Hartsdale Pet Cemetery, Hartsdale, NY • The Hartsdale Pet Cemetery, also known as the Peaceable Kingdom, is the first and oldest pet cemetery in America, with more than 70,000 animals and 1,000 humans buried on its grounds. Started in 1896 by veterinarian Dr. Samuel Johnson, the Hartsdale Pet Cemetery has been connecting animal lovers from the past and present for over a century. • “Nellie was called ’duck dog’ at the shelter because her feet point out and she waddles like a duck.“

Leah & Zeek, Pit Bull & Yorkshire Terrier (2 y/o), Hartsdale Pet Cemetery, Hartsdale, NY • “We call the cemetery the ‘Peaceable Kingdom’ because every animal coexists here peacefully. In most human cemeteries people want to be buried next to those with the same religious beliefs – in the ‘Peaceable Kingdom’ everyone puts their differences aside.”


~ Maleficent ~ 

Once a beautiful faerie uncorrupted by Mankind, Maleficent had an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom of the Moors, until an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. She rises to be a fierce protector, but ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal masked as True Love – an act that turned her pure heart to stone. 

Bent on revenge, Maleficent battles the invading king’s successor – the very man who had promised to love her forever. In an act to repay the insult, she places a curse upon his newborn infant, the Princess Aurora. Maleficent vows that on Aurora’s sixteenth birthday, she will prick her finger on the spindle of spinning wheel, falling into a sleep from which she may only be awakened by True Love’s Kiss. 

While the Princess-turned-peasant is in hiding, Maleficent realizes that the human girl is pure of heart, benevolent, and kind. Aurora holds not only the key to peace between the two kingdoms, but to Maleficent’s True Love as well.
