toby schmitz as jack rackham in black sails episode vii
When you and Miss Guthrie were plotting this little coup… when she asked, “Well shit, Anne, what makes you think ol’ Jack will go along with this plan of ours and not plead the truth to his men, as he’s most certainly going to feel duty bound to do?” What did you say?

#i love this show and it’s representation of the different kind of women#we have eleanor who is the self made snarling woman king#who built her empire on the backs of others and the name of her father#yet her danger is quiet because she can destroy you with one simple act#and then there’s max#the victim crouching in the shadows who takes her abuse because she doesn’t know any other way to live#she tries to manipulate those around her to rise through the ranks#but it doesn’t work on everyone#she’s not yet mastered her skillset#but her time is coming#and then there’s anne of course#the woman in a man’s world#who will cut off the balls of any man who dares fuck with her#the typical badass#but she’s smart as well—smart and calcuated and aware of how to play those around her#just like eleanor and max#each is written so different stylistically#in the way they fight and claw their way through life#but none is written as better than the other#the woman king; the feminine made victim; the badass lady pirate#each has her own strengths and weaknesses#each is shown and written as human#it’s so brilliant#ugh i love this show (via kingsbreaker)
I think this might be my favourite scene in all the Pirates of the Caribbean films. I can’t decide whose reaction I like best: Davy Jones’ look of sheer pride after ruining Will’s tea, Will’s look of “For fuck’s sake, I was drinking that” as it goes flying out of his hand, or Beckett’s look of horror at the sight of wasted tea.

- “Not you. You’re not strong enough?”
- “I don’t know, but I think it’s time I probably found out.”
