we are on a boat!

headcanon that dex watches deadliest catch the same way some people watch hockey
  • dex: NO YOU FUCKING MORON, DON'T LEAVE THE FUCKING CAGE OPEN! WHAT ARE YOU, AN AMATEUR?
  • dex: OH GOOD, NOW YOU'RE SAILING INTO THE STORM. GREAT. JUST GREAT.
  • dex: DID A KINDERGARTENER TEACH YOU HOW TO NAVIGATE A BOAT?
  • chowder: should we... do something?
  • nursey, recording dex on his phone and adding all the clips to his snap story: nah let him have this

The sign of four is even worse than the sign of three pining wise because Holmes hasn’t done anything to betray Watson’s trust yet, but Watson still leaves him. And all the while Watson is falling for Mary Morstan, Holmes is like pacing all night, can’t eat and Watson is concerned for him but just. Totally misunderstands what he’s seeing. And the end is positively dire with Holmes saying right in front of Watson that at least he has morphine left to him.

‘Ellenya told me that my beard was getting too big. I told her to cut me a little slack. But rather than that, she gave me a pack - of razors, and added…cut THAT, Jack…(no way in hell, Elle)’


Thus far many have peered, few have jeered and to some the beard is revered and cheered, which is quite weird. Now the beards so big, it is afeared. It’s like your whole chin disappeared! With just one pack it won’t be cleared, in fact we may require a rack of packs of razors to get it sheared. Our neighbour Jack once volunteered (like so many who’ve pioneered) to blaze a trail throughout the beard. A week in there he persevered (while for his safe return we feared), and finally he reappeared upon a boat he’d commandeered while in the confines of the beard. 'Tis high time razors interfered.

‘Anyway, how did you know my parents?’ Grace felt that she still did not know who this Jade person was and what they knew about the Joyces/Swanns.

‘Yep’ Jade nodded.  ‘I knew your parents and you’re right they passed away when I was ten. They told me all about you though and little Ellie, and her sister and all their friends.  I’m so happy we’ve met’.

‘How do you know about Ellie?’ Grace stepped back shocked. ‘That’s not possible!’ How could this stranger have known about the existence of her little sister?  There was no mention of Ellie in the newspaper clipping, there was no way Jade could have known about her… unless the Joyce’s were really her parents.  ‘You said you knew my parents, that’s past tense.  You mean they’re dead?’ Grace asked carefully.

‘Yes, they died in a boating accident.  Can we…’ Jade hesitated ‘Can we talk? Let’s get a drink at the cafe behind us’

‘Okay’ Grace nodded reluctantly.  She needed to know what this person had to say.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Move on, leave, run away, escape this place… but don’t forget about me, about us, about this town. Always remember where you come from so you can appreciate how far you’ve come.
