    Summary

    February. Cold midsummer in the fifties, but despite the frigidity of air and sea and man there are still watches to be watched and days to be passed, like any other ship on any other voyage, and on cool clear nights two lieutenants might stand alone in conversation on the quarterdeck and go undisturbed for hours.

    Bush/Gerard, second person, Lydia. Gorgeous portrait of a fierce and steely Bush, from a man who cannot stop watching him.

    Archie, Horatio, William, and Maria have some complaints about how they're usually portrayed in fanfic.

    Summary

    I offered to give a friend the time signatures of all the rapey bits in the first season of Black Sails, so that she could safely watch it. Since I had them, I figured I'd toss them up on the archive for everyone else to use. Black Sails is amazing, except for this one extremely rapey subplot with Max in the first season.

    For each episode, I've noted which time signatures to skip and made a quick summary of events that occur in those time signatures. If you spot anything I've missed, let me know and I'll add it!

    Summary

    Terran leave |ˈtɛrən liːv| n. The abandonment of work or duty without permission, executed in the dramatic fashion typical of the Terran race.

    An account of First Mate Fred Lahiri’s enigmatic and not at all commented upon departure from the salvage ship Octothorpe, its effect on the long-suffering crew, and the entirely rational course of action undertaken by the captain to bring him back.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I'm a sucker for any deathbed fic where Archie asks William to pass a kiss on to Horatio.
