(Question to Kaiden): Kaiden, since you’re a cabingirl and spend most of your time working with Jim, has the fact that you’re actually a woman slipped? Like, I don’t know.. maybe there were moments where you said or did something that usually a girl/ woman says/ does. For instance, do you deepen your voice to sound more masculine but would accidently speak in your original tone when you’re distracted?
(This ask is… quite a lot to put into. And by that I mean conducting some research before drawing it all out over a span of two or three months (which also languished because of other stuff I had to do, hence the slight shift in the artstyle💀))
For a simple and thorough explanation: Kaiden is mostly careful enough to not let her identity slip.
On the subject of Kaiden’s voice, she has a somewhat natural deep one, so it helps in keeping up her appearance. Two videos below will show how would she sound, the first one being if she were to deepen her voice (or at the very least tried to):
(And the second video (a lovely one I made) is her actual speaking tone 😅) :
that the biggest high seas bastard got a happy ending in this tragedy + all that is baked into that contradiction. the unreal/real nature of it truly matters less and less than the fact that, as narrator in that moment that we the audience sees it, silver gives flint his happy ending. real/unreal. that IS real. silver says it, and it is so - we get to watch the catharsis and relief and reunion. it’s not about if it happened it’s about silver needing that to be the final image for flint: a happy ending to a tragedy.
I’m having an absolute ball on this bitch (the bitch in question being the idea of the ofmd crew and the bs squad going on little allegorical journeys together to teach each other important lessons about friendship and being yourself and the importance of violent resistance in the face of colonialist oppression)
