warned you about

anonymous asked:

am i an idiot who can't read between the lines or is it confirmed somewhere that robert and joseph slept together? or do i need to read the cult ending to understand, because i haven't yet? i know robert says 'i don't kiss and tell' and tries to get you to stay away from joseph but is unclear why-- is that where everyone's getting it?

It ain’t actually Cult Ending specific to learn this, there’s a way to trigger a scene with Robert before you go on Joseph’s yacht for his third date. I think someone told me you need to go on two Robert dates and (maybe) two Craig dates? And get S rank on all four of em. Then of course, do Joseph’s route and get S rank on those dates.

If you get the trigger, Robert will confront you to try and warn you about Joseph. Your character doesn’t heed the warning and continues to the yacht, where he confronts Joseph about what Robert said. Joseph confirms with the MC that he and Robert used to have affairs, but said Robert was apparently very clingy to him, not understanding the idea of “casual sex,” (Which, total BS, since everyone who ever got Robert’s bad end go to experience how fuckin cold he is when it comes to casual sex. He definitely has a way to separate casual sex from intimate sex.)

But yeah, even without Cult Ending, Joseph admits he and Robert had a thing before. Joseph states it was purely casual, but Robert gives hints Joseph was leading him on the entire time (It’s speculated that Joseph pulled the exact same thing that happened to the MC on Robert; bring him to the yacht, tell him he’s leaving Mary for you, have sex with you, and then the next time you see him, it turns out, whoops! He still loves Mary and he needs to make this work!”)

So yeah, Robert and Joseph were confirmed a thing back then, but it clearly was very manipulative on Joseph’s part, and toxic all around. Especially since Robert, very clearly, despises Joseph.

I'm not really sure how describe these dreams but I have them often? It always involves me having something very bland in my mouth that I can't get out, like the consistency of playdough,, It's so weird and gross, I don't know why it keeps reoccurring 😅

Interesting. Medically, this could be organ imbalances with your kidneys, brain, or liver, but for that to be the case, you would have to have that sensation outside of the dream world. Your guide or another force could be warning you about this. I recommend you take zinc.

Furthermore, from a psychological stand point, this could show a distaste for your life and that you need new hobbies and activities.

Also, someone could also be acting in a way to make you not speak. It could be a hex or someone’s intent.

animation I did about ideas coming to life and things coming out of nothing

I definitely want to clean it up a bit cause i made it in firealpaca but for now here she is… the fruit of my love and labors

(I recommend using tumlrmobl’s gif feature to slow parts down frame by frame- slide your finger back and forth over the gif at the speed of your preference and it should work)

Her Skeleton Will Lie In The Chamber Forever…

I got an S grade on all of Joseph’s dates and got his gallery picture after the credits, which means I got his good ending……it’s the same ending.

There is no ending where you can end up in a happy relationship with Joseph where he leaves his wife and is committed to you. It doesn’t happen.

Details that people are ignoring or missing about Joseph’s route:

There are two opportunities to meet up with Mary at the bar when it’s raining (it’s think this might be a glitch but either way you get different outcomes/dialogue each time it’s triggered)

The first of the scenes is triggered if you go on 2 dates with Robert and possibly 2 dates with Damien but I’m not certain on that last detail, it may not need to be him, or either of them. Either way if you just straight up gun for Joseph you don’t see this.

In this first version of the scene it is revealed that Mary has never gone home with any of the men she propositions. It is also heavily implied that she is afraid to go home.

If you continue to pursue Joseph you are warned AT LEAST of three times that it won’t end the way you want to.

1) In the repeated scene with Mary, if you’re not condescending to her and apologise to her, she says she’s ‘sorry, for us both’ implying that you are both being played by Joseph.

2) Before you go on your third date with Joseph, your daughter warns you about your actions.

3) if you have been on two dates with Robert, he warns you that Joseph is bad news. Some extra context to his warning comes later when Joseph confesses he slept with Robert, but claims it was only once. It’s implied that Joseph is lying about this through details from Robert and a photo on the yacht.

Final point but some people really need to hear this -

Mary is confirmed in the story to have never actually cheated on Joseph. Joseph is confirmed to have cheated on Mary. She isn’t the horrible cheating wife people seem so eager to paint her as (honestly that just comes across as very misogynistic). He is the unfaithful, abusive, manipulative one within the marriage. He treats you exactly the same way it’s implied he’s treated Robert in the past and if you play the game attentively enough this is not only obvious, but it is flagged for you several times over.

To summarise, Joseph’s whole narrative is pretty much a cautionary tale about pursuing the married, closeted man and thinking that you’ll be the one to change/free him, it don’t work like that.

Also, if you think the game is “homophobic” because of this narrative…there are 6 other gay, bi, and trans dads for you to dadmance sooooooo….. (also nothing’s stopping you getting ploughed by Joseph on his sweet yacht if that’s what you’re into)

the historicity of queerness in black sails, pt. 1

Hello, Tumblr! Let’s talk about pirates, queer stuff, and historical accuracy

There’s been renewed talk in certain spaces this week about queer narratives in historical drama. This has been spurred almost entirely by the series finale of Black Sails, which made the (distressingly) controversial decision to end its four-year run by giving its queer protagonists a largely happy ending.

If any show currently airing was going to take such a leap, it was always going to be Black Sails, which from the outset possessed a keen interest in exploring queer narratives. This was seen–correctly–as being something almost unheard of among historical dramas: a genre whose queer characters, if any, are relegated to the status of minor character or tragic subplot. But why is this, and why did Black Sails provoke some ire for heading in the opposite direction? There is an easy answer; an assumption lurking in the undertow of many an irate Facebook or Reddit comment: queer people in the 18th century didn’t get happy endings, did they?

This is part of a bigger question: There were no gay people then, right? In other words, characters can’t be openly gay in the show, because they killed men for that, didn’t they, and isn’t this supposed to be a ‘historical’ drama? So: how accurate is the queerness in Black Sails? Let’s take a look at some history.

Trigger warning for discussions of period-typical homophobia and a brief mention of rape.
