we have not talked nearly enough about stede jealously saying that jack has nice hair and olu immediately telling stede he has nice hair too. and while we’re at it, i just love the atmosphere stede has cultivated on his ship. the way olu casually slept on stede’s couch all night and sleepily talks to him, the way lucius wanders in and speaks with olu and then with stede - and the little comforting touches lucius always provides, to stede’s knee in this scene but also to stede’s chest when he’s impaled in the ship’s mast. they’re all very openly affectionate and complimentary of each other, including physically, and it is incredibly refreshing between male characters and i just love it so so much

the symbolism of stede having a secret closet full of fine things in a rainbow of colours that you can only get to via a secret door but he lets ed in right away after only just meeting him and finding out he fancies a fine fabric too (read: likes men, but of course stede isn’t consciously making that connection yet). he shows ed exactly how to get inside, invites him in, and ed loves every single part of it. i love a gay metaphor so much i’m banging my fists on the table

shadows fx: watch guillermo’s journey of a lifetime!
the livestream being watched by hundreds of fans: a seemingly endless loop of the inside of a dark box with a ship horn blaring and guillermo singing, snoring, crunching oreos, humming, fending off a bumblebee and some rowdy seagulls, trying to call for help to no avail, and pauses of him figuring out how to pee because of all the pedialyte

NEW! GHOSTS SERIES 4 - GOOGLE DRIVE
Series 1-4 are now available on my Drive!
Please note:
Some episodes are still processing so they cannot be viewed, but they can still be downloaded. If the episodes fail to process properly, I will fix them at a later date
If you get the "number of allowed playbacks exceeded" error, it means the Drive is at capacity and you need to try again later
At this time, there's currently no subtitles available on the episodes, apologies and I will try and get them added at some point soon so they’re more accessible for everyone
P.S. I will be updating with the 2022 Christmas Special when it's available in December.

god god god when stede is back on the ship and everything is ok again, imagine that ed wants to keep his face clean shaven and stede, ever-loving stede who will teach ed the finest ways of anything, gently takes his face in one hand and a razor in the other and gives him a proper and intimate shave. and it’s the first time someone has ever held a blade to ed’s throat with love, something he didn’t even know was possible. but of course it’s possible. it’s stede.

thinking about lucius as the personification of stede’s consciousness and feelings, as stede’s narrative mirror. how they both have very similar sideburns, wear little neckties/cravats, stede dresses them both in the matching white outfits but lucius is the one who ends up a bloody mess, how lucius writes down all of stede’s inner monologues and he’s the only one who also reads from stede’s library, how lucius has the proof that stede is a proper pirate and it’s what allows him to stay alive, how lucius comforts stede when ed leaves with jack, how lucius is the one that ed seeks out for a heart-to-heart when stede is no longer an option, and of course how lucius is the one thrown overboard because he’s too close, he understands too much, he very bluntly called out how much they liked each other and never pretended it was anything else. he gets rid of his heart (the silk) and then he gets rid of the representation of stede’s voice, his feelings, his sexuality. he’s stede’s compass or navigator of sorts. lucius is stede’s emotional awareness, he sees what takes stede a little longer to see, and he looks out for him even if, at first, his feelings (lucius) were ready to turn on him (the mutiny in the pilot). stede is always ready to punish himself, after all. apt that his mirror should.
also worth mentioning how lucius is openly gay now but says his mum thought he liked girls for years and not all beards are actual beards, when stede was in a loveless marriage to a woman (his beard) and was not aware of being gay and falling for a man. lucius and black pete could then serve as mirrors for predicting stede and ed’s future in terms of them accepting each other, accepting that they can’t lose each other, being together romantically and sexually, the fact that they love each other and don’t own each other.
(an extra note: kinda love that black pete is called black pete, it reminds me of blackbeard and then he also wears the black armband reminiscent of ed’s black band tattoo, and he’s the one who brings ed into the narrative first by associating himself with him textually. and black pete hypes blackbeard up to be just like a legend, a violent myth, but he’s just a man, just like black pete - men capable of being soft and tender and loving with the men they love rather than just being blood-thirsty pirates.)

sometimes i can’t get over ed trying to work himself up to kill stede by giving himself a little pep talk like “you’re a fuckin killer bro!” blackbeard literally calls himself bro whilst psyching himself up with a quick round of the knife game and it’s so fucking funny. it truly is objectively hilarious because mate in about 5 minutes you’re gonna be crying under your boy best friend’s robe. who are you kidding. you daydream about holding his hand i know you fucking do don’t LIE. just pack it up bro you’re one step away from plucking flower petals like “stede loves me, he loves me not” put the knife down clown shoes and kiss him

obsessed with stede dressing ed in purple when it was a notoriously expensive colour to afford and own, a colour often only associated with royalty and the uppermost elite. stede really said this man deserves only the best and let him wear what are probably some of the most valuable pieces he owns
