    Summary

    It seems that life, while it has to be lived forwards, can only be understood backwards.

    ---

    James sits down by the creek; he has been sitting there for days, or maybe it has only been a couple of minutes. He knows that it is most likely both at the same time.

    A hand on his shoulder and a warm voice reach him, like sunlight touching his skin. ‘James’, Miranda says, ‘with all the life-threatening situations you have been in, I never would have thought that in the end you would die peacefully in your sleep.’

    He smiles.

    Summary

    There was a big man in front of James' and Thomas' table. He had dark eyes and brown long hair and a mustache, he had a sword on his waist and a wrong look on his eyes; just like the ones James encountered on people who had no respect for other’s suffering; the ones that took great pleasure in causing pain. James hated him on sight. He took one look at Thomas and saw Thomas had reached the same conclusion.

    “Do you know the man that was seated with you?” the man asked, meaning Silver, who had just left. James felt the hair on his back stand. No one came asking for Silver. Ever. Silver made sure no one knew where he went when Thomas had brought him.

    Summary

    "Why are you here?"

    Convinced it would look too much like startlement, Silver does not let his eyes shift downwards at the sound of Flint's voice. He watches the displaced dust around the rafters above, instead, swirling in the air as men walk overhead.

    "Ben mentioned you were refusing your rations," Silver says. His voice is too hoarse.

    Flint's is horrifyingly flat. "So?"

    "So, I'd really rather you not die. Not now, not when we’re so close."

    Summary

    Prompt (kinda): Okay I know we will probably never know about Silver’s exact backstory, but can please someone write a fic, of Silver having been in Bedlam? And Flint finding out and thinking of Thomas and kinda freaking out… and Silver is like “That is the reason why I didn’t want to tell you!”

    Or, we get a bit more insight into Silver's past.

    Summary

    This is the ninth part of a new piece with A LOT of Black Sails characters in modern time. I have some chapters done already, but I'm really not sure how it will end up. Some characters will be closer to the real Black Sails personalities, while I've taken some liberties with others. We will get to know florists, religious nuts, university teachers and a psychologist living in the same house in Southampton. Some characters will be blood relatives, some will be lovers, a lot of them are neighbours and even though Billy Bones is the main character, there will be a lot of side stories to his.

    THIS CHAPTER IS WEIRD. It's about ballet, an old Swedish movie, a Billy Bones still not knowing he's in love and very much blushing.

    Summary

    "What?" Silver looks at Flint nonplussed. What's he done wrong this time? Actually, he's done next to nothing in the last two hours. At all. Pretending to peel potatoes can't possibly count.

     

    "Don't you think it would be more believable that I sleep in the same room with the man who I seemingly love enough to forgive him the theft of the very thing that's to secure our all future?"

     

    We're in season 1 and the crew found out that Silver stole the Urca schedule. Of course the next logical step, to securing Silver stays alive until they've actually found the Urca, is for Flint and Silver to pretend to be lovers.
