    Summary

    Together, they strip the corpses of fallen soldiers like scavengers, sending prayers of forgiveness to their respective Gods, and take what they can carry on two horses. Eilat is several weeks of hard riding away, and from there Yusuf is insistent they take a merchant ship to Aden. Nicolo soon loses all feeling in his behind and thighs. Yusuf continues to alight from his horse as if having awoken from a pleasant nap. “It’s all about rhythm,” he tells Nicolo, moving his hips to demonstrate. Nicolo contemplates killing him, for whatever good that will do.

    Yusuf asks Nicolo to run away with him; Nicolo agrees, with reservations. Serious reservations. If only he could remember what those were.

    Summary

    The show 'Black Sails' makes masterful use of Biblical themes, Homeric themes and Graeco-Roman mythology. This is a collection of metas I wrote on the subject on tumblr back in the day.

    Summary

    On a show like 'Black Sails' (that is, after all, a prequel to 'Treasure Island' which features a map rather prominently) it behooves us to take a particularly close look at all the maps that were selected by the prop department and analyze how they foreshadow the show's ending. (This is a meta about cartography.)

    Summary

    Watson stood in the doorway and stared incredulously into Holmes' room. It looked as though a small, extremely localized cyclone had recently passed through, but that was typical and not what had captured his attention. The high bed was untidily made and not one but two individuals were deeply asleep, sprawled across the coverlet and sharing one pillow.
