    Summary

    Howard Hamlin and ‘living dangerously’ have never been comfortable bedfellows. But when a chance encounter finds him staring down a slippery slope, Howard discovers that sometimes all you need is a push in the right direction - or the wrong one. And Lalo Salamanca seems determined to be the one to give Howard that push.

    Summary

    Written in response to a Tumblr prompt asking for s1 dynamics softe silverflint, Silver's first time with a man.

    ---

    “It would be unwise,” Flint says. It is true, and he doesn’t mean it to sound like a concession, but he realizes too late that anything other than outright denial implies an invitation.

    Silver’s face splits into a grin, triumphant and bright as sunlight, as if Flint has given him the most wondrous gift. He is far too close and steps closer still. The bravado returns in full force as Silver looks up at Flint and says, with all his practiced cheek, “But Captain, I am known for making terribly unwise decisions.”

    “You’ve really never…?” Flint asks.

    “No,” Silver admits. “I’ve wanted to though. Just never had a good opportunity.”

    “And this strikes you as a good opportunity?” Flint asks dryly.

    Silver’s eyes travel deliberately up and down Flint’s body; it's been a long time since anyone has looked at him with such open hunger. “Very,” he answers, voice dark and rough like velvet and Flint shivers. Silver may be inexperienced, but he certainly isn’t shy.

    Summary

    In a world divided by intergalactic war, John Silver is just trying to survive like everyone else, by any means necessary; but when a deal gone wrong leaves him marooned, his lying, thieving ways are challenged by the only other person left alive on an isolated planet dying in the final stages of apocalypse ...

    After being marooned alone for three years, James Flint doesn't trust another living soul, least of all a thief cast down to his planet without warning, but it seems the universe has other ideas. They will have to work together to survive - and perhaps find the way home.

    Summary

    Why, what could she have done, being what she is?
    Was there another Troy for her to burn?
    -WB Yeates
    No Second Troy
    Way back in the day, before I had even finished watching Black Sails, I became totally convinced that Silver and Flint could have been fucking for the whole show and the dynamic would still work, and it wouldn’t necessarily change the outcome at all. The show narrative withholds information after all. That is basically the premise of this series. It is canon compliant perhaps to a fault, and evolves in many of the same ways as the show in terms of tone. As such - do not expect it to hurt any less. This is a love story. That does not mean it's happy.

    The first part tracks canon and cuts off just pre-Charles Town. The second part is the story of Silver's decision to stay, give up his claim on the gold and become Quartermaster, as well as how the situation in Nassau is resolved. Third part follows Silver adapting to his role as quartermaster, his evolving relationship with Flint, and their time during the raids.

    It’s only once Silver's climbed on the rail, about to make his escape, that he dares to glance towards the captain’s cabin.

    HIs eyes meet Captain Flint’s from across the deck -

    And the world bursts into color.

    (In which Flint and Silver are soulmates, but Thomas and Flint were soulmates first.)
