    Summary

    John, horrified by what he finds he’s capable of after Dufresne, decides to run. Of course, he should have known better than to assume he would ever be free of James Flint. Not a week after leaving, he sees an opportunity for a simple bit of robbery that turns out to be a lot more complicated than he ever imagined. Whoever Thomas Hamilton is, he’s strange, and not what he pretends to be - however grateful he seems to be that John rescued him from his captors. Still, John decides that perhaps a simple partnership can’t hurt, right?

    A story that explores what would happen if Thomas joined the story of Black Sails at the start of series four, and what John not playing along would have meant.

    Summary

    There are some great quick guides to HTML on A03. This is not one of them - it is a comprehensive guide, dividing all of the available tags into the following categories:

    1. Text Formatting (in-line HTML)
    2. Page Formatting (block HTML)
    3. Tables and Lists
    4. Links and Images

    Each tag will have - at a minimum - a link to the w3schools page about it (so you can learn more), a code example, and the result of the code example.

    It will also introduce tag attributes, ways to further refine formatting, for a few simple - but widely applicable - cases.

    Summary

    “You are one of the few people I’ll tolerate in town, probably because of that damned smile. Also because Rus adores you. And what cat loves their vet?”

    “Being tolerated. That’s what I’ve always thought was a good solid foundation for a friendship.” John smiled again, a little less brightly – more sideways, to be frank – and it was met with a sideways twitch of Flint’s mouth. Another win.

    “The point is, I’m here. If you need someone.”

     

    The AU that nobody asked for where John is a veterinarian and James makes jam. (IDK it made sense at the time)

    This started as a coping ficlet (or three) when my kitty was dying and spiraled out of control. So here's the parts from tumblr transferred over and then some.
