    Summary

    Ten years after the end of the war, a chronic illness which threatens to be the death of Silver forces the truth from the long, dark shadows into the light. To save his own life, he'll have to journey across the sea and a hundred miles to face the one person he never thought he would see again - a man whose forgiveness is perhaps as unlikely as the tale Silver wove about him, a forest impasse, a plantation, and the resurrection of a long lost love.

    Summary

    Ficfest prompt:

    'silverflint, madi/silver. madisilverflint? if somebody wanted to keep going with the concept? but not necessary. flint accidentally witnesses an intimate moment between madi and silver, but instead of leaving he keeps watching, unseen by them. he probably feels really angsty and guilty about it.'

    It’s not the first time Flint has spied on paradise. Before he ever knew Miranda and Thomas wanted him, he saw them holding each other, fitting together, and wished so badly he could be part of it. And he was, for the briefest time, made whole. After losing both of them, he knew that he would forever be wandering outside these gates. What he didn’t know was that he would crave entry again, with someone else.

    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

    Silver turns back to the audience, his dark hair illuminated by the stage’s light, his profile made into sharp twists of shadows and light. He waits out the roaring noise until he can speak once more. James is transfixed by the sight.

    Summary

    In the year 1725, or thereabouts, John Silver finds himself driven by a storm into an inconsequential little port town, barely a speck on any civilised map. Returned to the life of a drifter, tired and rough around the edges, he is resigned to waiting for the weather to pass before he can sail on again to the next town, and the next, and the next. That is until he overhears a conversation in the inn about a local fisherman, one Captain Barlow, and his tall tales of tempests and becalmings, devils and sharks, and Silver finds a new future opening up to him, haunted by the spectres of his past.

    Featuring art by Saskia (@finngualart) and a moodboard by Millie (@madisilverflint). Thank you both! <3
