Buffy: He ran away, right? Giles: Sort of, more. turned and swept out majestically, I suppose. Said I didn't concern him. Buffy: So a mythic triumph over a completely indifferent foe? Giles: Well, I'm not dead or unconscious, so I say bravo for me.

Hee! Ok, so the Fleetwood Mac fans and Our Flag Means Death fandom Venn diagram isn’t quite a circle, but there’s a lot of overlap.

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

once again running up against the fact that I am SHIT at titles and always have been.

Songs/poems/quotations. That's where I go.

It's actually been a really hard year, when you stop and do the math. Eliot would cry, too, if it didn't take him seventy minutes of therapy, two cocktails, and a Sondheim medley before he can experience a human emotion through the haze of his PTSD.

This feels like the era of Richard-Siken-quotes-as-fic-titles.

This may be a crazy idea, but have you considered Fleetwood Mac lyrics?

See? I gave everybody here an opportunity to tell me what a bad person I am and nobody did, because I fuckin' rule.

Are there any that could pertain to Young Oluwande?

Maybe? I still haven't seen OFMD, but I've seen eleventy billion gifsets. There's "Ain't got no crystal ball But the future ain't hard to tell" from "Watchout" [link]

"you invent the future that you want to face" from "Future Games". [link]

"Heroes Are Hard To Find" [link]

"That's All For Everyone" [link]

You Invent The Future That You Want To Face is plausible with the story I'm working on. It may be subtitled "Being A True Chronicle of the Early Life and Deeds of Oluwande Boodhari, Outlaw Shipwright," but I'm not sure yet.

I don't remember who recc'd this, but it's horrifyingly good. Edward Teach goes home to visit his mum.

I have committed OFMD fic again--Stede and Mary backstory, specifically the month leading up to that absolutely disastrous anniversary gift exchange.
