    Summary

    Yeah, so. I don't usually do WIPs. This idea kind of grabbed my brain last night as I was trying to sleep, though, and wouldn't let go until I'd at least posted a chapter. This isn't even my main ship! But here you have it: Thomas Hamilton, pirate captain of the Walrus, scourge of the Caribbean. If I keep this going, the rating will most assuredly change.
    FAIR WARNING: THIS MAY BE AN ETERNAL WIP. There is no grand plan. Chapters come as they will. Caveat emptor and I'll never leave a cliffhanger. <3

    Summary

    “Up, up,” he calls to Silver down in the waist where he’s sitting with Shaw and a few of the other men, splicing rope. Silver looks up at him. “Time to learn to fight at sea.”

    “It’s terrible when he gets like this,” Silver tells Shaw, as if Flint can’t hear him. “All bloody-minded and cheerful. Here, take this bit. The Captain calls, and I must answer.” Flint grins benevolently at them both and fetches the sticks he’d stashed near the mainmast in anticipation of this moment.

    Summary

    “I’ve brought tea,” James says, unnecessarily, as he holds the tray out before him before placing on the table beside the bed, and taking a seat there next to Silver’s hip. Silver quirks a tiny smile at him. James is arrested, as always, just looking at him. The play of light and shadow over the muscles in his arm as he turns a page. His big, broad hands, roughened by sea life. The two long black curls of hair that just reach his nipple, and oh, he’s talking.

    Summary

    “I was just laying out some ideas I’ve had about where the Penelope might sail on her next few voyages,” Flint answers, and he sounds like he’s choosing his words with the greatest delicacy, and that winds Silver up even more tightly. Oh, he can already tell that he isn’t going to like this.

    Summary

    "War looks very different from the deck of a ship, the ranks of a battalion than it does from the bloody streets of a town that had no part in starting it, or fighting it. Only dying in it."

    Summary

    One sardonically arched eyebrow is all he can see, as James turns enough to speak against his own shoulder, looking back. “Ares never had a flaming sword. And why is it that whenever your wits are addled, you suddenly ascribe all manner of supernatural powers to me? Starvation. Rum. Now a head injury? This is becoming a concern. And we came in through the bloody door.” His voice is hushed and fond.

    Summary

    Or: Third In A Continuing List Of Insurmountable Things That Stand Between John Silver And Treasure Island

    He’s always liked this ship, from the first time he’d set foot on her in Tortuga. She’s light to the wind and the rudder, and easy under his feet, no sharp movements or heavy, heaving lurches after the sails like the merchant ships where he’d begun his life at sea. Now even she feels tense, though, taut in her anchorage, stiff to the waves rolling into Chesapeake Bay off the ocean ahead of what looks like a sharp late-spring squall. He kisses his fingertips and presses them to her mainmast. “Easy, lady,” he murmurs. “We’ll bring him back, don’t you fret none.”

    Summary

    Or: How The Ocean Helps James Flint Get His Groove Back

    “Maybe it’s pirates,” Silver calls to him from his perch amidships, not even bothering to move from his custom spot with its handholds and braces and perfect view both fore and aft. James can see the wicked edge to his grin even from his place on the foredeck. “That’ll make things lively.”

    Or: Fuck Treasure Island, And Also Actual History, And Probably Season Four Canon, Too

    "He is so terribly in love with you," Madi murmurs to him from out of nowhere, sitting easy in the curve of his arm in the shade of their small porch.
