#first time doing one of these

Oh boy I should be working, but…

First listening, I was really frustrated with Tim (for the same reason I was frustrated with Basira). We know that Jon’s really, really going through it, that he’s doing his best, and it’s not strictly his fault that his best isn’t very good. Tim does not know this. Tim’s a hypocrite, rude, mean, and doesn’t really help anybody because he’s too wrapped up in his own pain. It’s all understandable, born from trauma, and really good and nuanced character work. He’s a good person in shit circumstances. Most TMA characters are like this - but most of them got the chance to move past and get better (Melanie, Jon, Daisy). Tim never did, so he kind of died a jerk. I didn’t have a good sense of him for a while, which is why he’s such a background character in BBC and MATDB. HR was almost frustrating to write, because Sasha cared a lot about Tim while I really didn’t. But as a result I was forced to actually find an approach to him. 

The way I interpret him in fic (which is not supposed to be exact with canon)is that he is the hero. Legitimately. He is the most heroic character in most of the stuff I write. This is most obvious in No Sin But Ignorance, but it crops up relentlessly in Human Relations and Space Cadet/Minesweeper. He is loyal, kind, dedicated, masculine, gregarious, selfless, attractive, and has a strong sense of morality and justice. Tim is a Good Guy ™. 

Jon is a Bad Guy ™. He is rude, intrusive, monstrous, prickly, and throws himself down the bad decisions tree hitting every branch on the way down. But, for some reason, every trait of Tim’s that makes him a good guy also makes him the antagonist, and every trait of Jon’s that makes him a bad guy makes him the protagonist. It’s Jon’s story, the bad guy, so his villain is the good guy, Tim. But it’s not that simple. Who’s really doing the right thing?

I find it really, really interesting to talk about how ‘good’ traits can be bad, and ‘bad’ traits can be good. BBC is the story of how one terrible person willingly destroyed the universe just to keep a few people safe. It was also about how one person gave up being selfless and decided to be selfish, and how that saved the world. All of Tim’s good traits, everything that made him the hero of a less interesting story, made him a terrible person in SC, made him the idiot who kicked off the terrible downer ending of HR, and that made him an incredibly confrontational yet loving and protective asshole who got in the way of our cute romcom in NSBI (In NSBI it is painfully obvious that Tim thinks of himself as the protagonist and Jon as the waify damsel in distress). Tim is incredibly masculine, and in HR that is the stupidest possible thing to be. In SC Tim thinks that, because he is a Good Guy ™, that makes everything he do justified - even if some of the stuff he does is awful, he is a Good Person, so that makes it good. Good is a thing you are, not a thing you do. 

That’s why Tim is one of my favorite characters to write! He’s just so interesting and nuanced. He’s such a good antagonist - character wise, for the reasons mentioned above, and narrative wise for a lot of other much more boring reasons (he’s very active and tends to act while other characters are more passive and tend to react). I never like writing villains (actually, I find chessmaster/mastermind villains very boring, which is why I always gloss over Elias). I like writing people whose greatest enemies are themselves. I also like writing antagonists (different from villains!) who are convinced that they’re doing the right thing, who do the right thing because they’re a good person, and who are at heart loving, kind, good people, but who don’t have the full picture and whose trauma and fear gets in the way of doing the right thing. 

Thanks for the ask!

If he had only said I love you back maybe I would have rethought us breaking up. If he had tried to say I love you to me to make up for all of the times I said it to him the last 2 years with no response and a slowly cracking heart, maybe I’d have agreed to stay with him. 2 and a half years and he never once told me he loved me.

I don’t get why so many people hate the Death Note drama.

I guess I can get it if people only saw the first few episodes, and thought it was going to be a normal Light vs. genius L–because that really isn’t Death Note–but it isn’t.

This Light is/was a genius too, but just didn’t apply himself after his mom died–and wanted a normal life–so it takes him a little bit to become the Light we know from the anime, but he does become that. And everything anime Light does, drama Light does do. They also take a longer time to corrupt him… but I kind of prefer it that way? Because this version of the character made me sympathize with Light in a way I never had before. 

…I haven’t seen the Netflix movie (and probably never will. Thank God), but the general consensus seems to be that it also tried to make Light more sympathetic. But it went about it the wrong way, in making Ryuk the master manipulator and Misa–err, Mia–the more evil one, so that it really wasn’t even Light at that point. I feel like the drama is sympathetic Light done right.

What are other issues people have with this drama? Oh. Light being “ugly”, which he’s not, and L being “hot”. And I guess if this bothers you that much, that’s your choice. But IDK. Adaptations making someone more or less attractive than they were in the source material has never really upset me. All I care about is if I think they’re good for the characters. And for the most part, I think these two are (Light especially. Seriously. He plays Kira so well).

And then people don’t like that they changed L’s mannerisms… which I guess is fair. But for me, L’s mannerisms don’t make L. And they seemed to trade them for similar things (for instance, L’s new weird sitting thing is him jumping into a chair and having his legs dangle over the armrest. And instead of him picking things up with two fingers–and holding them far from his face, because he’s a germaphobe?–now everyone has to be sprayed with disinfectant(?) when they come in to see L now). I guess I’m okay with this, because this is an adaptation where they’re making things slightly different, so people won’t be bored. As I definitely think this is an adaptation that assumes you know the original well, and is trying to find some new ways to surprise you… which I actually appreciated. I guess if I have to mourn one thing of L’s that was lost, it’s probably the social awkwardness. Though it’s still somewhat there, like in L thinking nothing of having Lind L. Tailor die to prove his point, and Soichiro having to chew him out for it.

This adaptation also does more with the Light and L friendship… which I’m personally here for; and I think that’s a good thing to highlight if you want to make some changes, but still stay close to the source material. Because I won’t say it was my favorite thing from the original… but the fact that Light and L probably could have been friends, if things were different, was something I hadn’t expected but enjoyed. And it added a nice bit of tragedy to the whole thing.

I think that about covers everything I’ve heard complaints about? At the end of the day, it’s not my favorite version of Death Note. And I don’t think it should be anyone’s entry point into the series. But if you know the original story well, and are looking for another adaptation to enjoy the story through, I think the drama serves its purpose well. Especially since, as said, I think the drama assumes you know the original, so the few changes that are there can take you by surprise. There are a few changes, but it’s still the same story.

Like, I remember when Shadowhunters came out (The The Mortal Instruments adaptation), and the director, writers, or whoever said that they get to the same points differently, but they still get to them in the end… But I think that statement became disingenuous, and it did eventually feel like an entirely different story from the source material. I feel like it’s true about this drama, however.

Also… remember, guys, that they had a budget and stuff. I’m sure they did well with what they had.

Edit: I’ll even mention that I think it makes sense for this L to be more sympathetic towards this Light. Because this Light wanted to be a cop when he was a kid… but then his mother was dying, and his dad chose a case over seeing his wife in her dying moments (and I mean, to be fair, a very dangerous escaped murderer was on the loose. And I didn’t think Soichiro realized he was squandering away his last chance to see her). And Light is furious about this, because he called his dad so many times and he didn’t come. So after this, Light has a bad view of the police and never wants to be one. But deep down, he did–or would have–if this hadn’t happened. So when he gets his hand on the Death Note, the sense of justice he’d always had sadly came out in a twisted way and L realizes this.

#I could for days write how I think this light was actually handled really well, #maybe I will some time, #also I guess here in the tags I'll mention something I had issues with at first, #I didn't like that they combined near and Mello. or that to do that they made Mello near's split personality, #I'm familiar with characters being combined in adaptations. like in twilight Jessica was Jessica and Lauren and Eric was Eric and ben, #and I get why a lot of times that probably needs to happen and can most of the time even agree with the choice, #but I just thought that was a weird way to go about it here. but in the end I became way more okay with it than I thought I was going to be, #also... I can get it if some people don't like it because of the acting. because I feel light is the only one who really stands out, #even though people who have never seen the drama sadly always hate on the guy because he's not as 'hot' as anime light, #when to me he was the best part of the show, #but I mean. I could still watch it. I didn't think it was terrible, #...okay if I'm being honest I don't know if l was the greatest actor in the world--which is part of the reason I'm sad when people who, #haven't seen the drama watch amvs and praise him and tear down light's actor, #but I still think he did a fine job. since he's a model and was maybe new to acting at the time?, #everyone else was decent too. even though they're not in it that much so probably only decent for that reason

Normally I don’t really understand people who like to cause problems and agitate others…..but I just asked for pads for Christmas, knowing that if my mom does, in fact, give them to me on Christmas, it’ll make my dad really uncomfortable and grossed out so like……….maybe not the same thing, but I’m starting to understand where those feelings come from

Left you all on a cliffhanger last time, so let’s just jump right in! Previous part of the POTC AU here, the whole tag is here, and Jules Farrier is @cursebreakerfarrier’s! Let’s go! <3

x~x~x~x

It took a moment for Orion to recover from Carewyn’s “confession.” It took a little longer still before he felt brave enough to make any movement toward her, though he still found himself oddly uncertain of how to proceed. For, believe it or not, the dashing pirate Orion Amari had never been in love with anyone else, nor did he have much instinct of how best to express affection. He’d encountered plenty of pirates who were “ladies’ men” in Tortuga and the like, of course – but not only did Orion find they often gave off unpleasant vibes, but he knew for a fact that not one of them could have ever caught the eye of someone like Carewyn Cromwell.

And so Orion found himself hesitating, his hand resting just over Carewyn’s shoulder just shy of her cheek, as he watched her face for her reaction. Carewyn fortunately picked up on Orion’s shyness immediately, and she inclined her head in a muted, encouraging nod as she brought her own hand up to lightly trail over his cheek. The gentleness of the gesture made a shudder ripple through Orion’s shoulders, and he soon found himself mirroring her, smoothing a piece of her bangs from her eyes with his pointer and middle fingers. Her lips spread into a smile as she leaned in, her hand securing itself on his jawline, and placed a chaste kiss to his lips.

That kiss lasted three seconds.

The warmth of her lips on top of his seemed to fill Orion with a wonderful lightness, as if he were coming up off the ground – and when it ended, there was a strange feeling of withdrawal. It felt like he’d gotten only a small taste of some sugary sweet, and it just wasn’t enough to satisfy him.

And so, almost as soon as she’d pulled away, Orion found himself bringing both hands up to her cheeks, cradling it as he slowly leaned in and kissed her again.

That kiss lasted fifteen seconds.

When they broke apart again, both of them were smiling. Carewyn leaned her forehead against his, and for a moment, all they could do was hold each other, reveling in this bizarre new feeling of closeness. It was so warm and fulfilling, and yet peaceful and soothing at the same time. Orion was more off-balance than ever and yet…all seemed right with the world.

As happy as the moment was, however, they both knew it couldn’t last. Carewyn was the one who woke up from the dream first.

“…What do we do now?” she murmured.

Orion’s face became much more somber seeing the sad glint in Carewyn’s gaze as it fell away. He considered her carefully, his dark eyes narrowing slightly.

“…I don’t know,” he said at last, very softly.

His eyes trailed over her face even though she still couldn’t look up at him.

“…I know I cannot ask you to come with me. You could never be a pirate, Carewyn Cromwell. Your spirit’s free as one, but your heart is too noble. Too heroic and selfless…”

His gaze softened sadly.

“And as long as your family – your found family as well as your brother – is out on the high seas…I know you would never abandon the position that gives you the power to protect them. …Nor could I ever ask that of you.”

Carewyn met Orion’s eyes again. Her blue eyes were rippling to the brim with emotion, raging and turbulent as the sea itself.

“And I can’t ask you to stay with me,” she said. “As long as the East India Trading Company is obsessed with hunting down and killing all pirates…it would never be safe for you in Port Royal…or near me.”

She leaned her forehead against his again, closing her eyes.

Orion wished he knew how best to comfort her. Tentatively he secured his arms around her and brought up a hand to cradle the back of her head, the way he’d seen a woman hold her beau’s head while kissing him goodbye at the dock, when he was a boy.

“The world does indeed seem to be against us,” he said softly, “but the world in itself is not meant to be static. It, and fate, is constantly moving. Fate brought us together once, long ago…and it also demanded we separate. It brought us back together, and then we had to separate once more. Like the sun chases the moon…they do see each other every morning at dawn and every night at dusk…even if they must be apart so much of the time.”

Orion adjusted slightly so that he could look Carewyn in the face more easily.

“…Even if we must do that pattern several more times over,” he whispered, “I would cherish every time we met in the sky again, even if it’s only fleetingly.”

Carewyn looked up at him, her eyes full of pain. The movement made their lips suddenly only a hair’s width apart.

“You’d be all right with just that?” she asked.

He could feel her breath against his lips. It was enough to make his heart rate spike, and he had to take a stabilizing breath before answering. 

“It seems to me that this…is something that most people could go their whole life never knowing for a moment. With that perspective…those precious moments where we could cross paths would be a gift, not an injustice.”

Carewyn frowned. “I understand, but…in this world we’re in, we should not want to collide at all. I’d have to arrest you, and we’d have to fight. There’s only so much we can pretend…so much I can pretend.”

She closed her eyes again, but this time, she didn’t just look sad – she looked focused. When she opened her eyes again, it was full of a new kind of fire.

“If the world is meant to change…then I’ll make sure it does,” she said firmly. “I’ll fight for a world where you don’t have to run, and I don’t have to lie – where Bill, Charlie, and Jules don’t have to be criminals just because they were determined to save my life. Where the Navy protects its citizens more than the East India Trading Company’s bottom line. …Where people aren’t automatically branded criminals with no chance of reprieve or proper justice.”

Orion considered Carewyn for a moment, his expression rather unreadable. Carewyn’s confidence flickered ever-so-slightly.

“…You don’t believe me?”

Orion’s lips spread into a full, soft smile.

“I learned when I was still a boy trying to argue against eating and staying the night in a stranger’s house never to doubt the convictions of Carewyn Cromwell.”

Carewyn’s eyes softened as her lips also spread into a very small, warm smile. Then she leaned in to close the gap between their mouths once more.

That kiss lasted only a second, but there were about five more of them in rapid succession, a little longer and deeper each time.

The following day, the Artemis found a deserted island on one of the rum runners’ routes where they could drop Carewyn off. The crew was a bit disappointed to see her go – sure, she was a bit too paragon to be a pirate, but she was a capable sailor and her singing voice was pleasant to listen to. Most importantly of all, they could all sense how much their Captain had taken to her and hated the thought of him being unhappy without her.

Carewyn and Skye exchanged a respectful handshake and farewells. McNully shook Carewyn’s hand too, but both she and he ended up using both hands in the end – Carewyn lamented that she wouldn’t be able to work with such a talented tactician back with the Navy. Then Orion escorted Carewyn ashore on his own, the crew staying behind so that they could exchange their proper farewells.

Both of them stayed very stoic for most of the hand-off. Orion could only give Carewyn a jug of water and a pistol with one shot, as per the rules of marooning, as much as he’d also wished he could give her a bottle of rum and some food for the next few days she’d no doubt be on the island, waiting for someone to pick her up. But as Carewyn pointed out, she wouldn’t die of thirst in that time, and she honestly shouldn’t look in great shape when she was recovered anyway. And so, reluctantly, Orion turned to go.

He’d made it about twenty paces when he paused, looking back at Carewyn on the beach. She was standing in true Commodore fashion, with her arms behind her back and her posture perfectly straight, and yet despite her brave expression, he could see the sadness in her eyes she tried so desperately to hide.

It was in that moment that Orion did something completely off-balance and impulsive. In an instant, he’d barreled back across the beach at the run and, when he reached Carewyn, he threw an arm around her, pulled her in, and kissed her. It was deeper than any of their other kisses had been, with both of them holding onto each other’s back and head and touching each other’s faces as they tried desperately to communicate the depth of their feelings in that tragically short time they were allowed.

That kiss felt like it went on for days…and yet it still wasn’t long enough.

Part of Carewyn wanted to just grab Orion and never let go of him again – to shield him from anyone and anything who tried to harm him…but she knew she couldn’t hope to protect him from the entire world. And so, very reluctantly, she and Orion separated, and Orion returned to the Artemis. Carewyn watched the pirate ship sail out of sight, her heart full of every prayer she could think of to ensure his safety.

Within two days, Carewyn had been found by a merchant ship, and within the week, she was back in Port Royal. Percy had been beyond relieved to hear of her safe return, though it broke Carewyn’s heart to lie about what had gone down with Bill, Charlie, and Jules. McNully had decided it’d be best if Carewyn claimed that she and the two eldest Weasleys had had a huge falling-out when she’d heard what they’d done (rather like Percy had) and that they’d been the ones to maroon her, rather than Orion. It would give a good explanation about why she was in such good shape, since even if Bill and Charlie were now criminals, they were still “his brothers,” but it would also make them seem rather heartless, to maroon their own brother on some barren island supposedly with no chance of rescue. When Carewyn met Governor Farrier again, however, she refused to say that Bill was holding Jules prisoner, as he’d originally presumed. 

“She took the Revenge and rechristened it as her own flagship,” said Carewyn solemnly. “I’m afraid Miss Farrier – pardon, Juliette Weasley is as much a pirate as my brothers are.”

What she did not add was that she believed that was “not at all.”

In the time Carewyn was gone, Percy had been promoted to Captain of his own ship, the Clearwater. He was incredibly proud of it – as happy as Carewyn was for Percy, it proved difficult at points for her not to get a little irritated about how much he was puffing his chest out in the new fancier blue and white uniform he’d been given. He also couldn’t stop talking about the man who had “suggested” he be promoted, after meeting him.

“Lord Beckett really has his finger on the pulse of things,” said Percy one day as he walked with Carewyn around the newly repaired wall of the fort together. “He was thoroughly dismayed when he’d heard you’d been captured – he’d actually wanted to meet you when you first got promoted, he’s heard all about you…”

‘Lucky me,’ Carewyn couldn’t help but think. The memory of Orion telling her about his time on Beckett’s slave ship rippled over her mind again, and it made her feel a bit ill.

“…Said your ingenuity would be a valuable asset. Lord Beckett is a businessman first and foremost, you see, so he tends to see people in regards to how useful they are…”

‘Useful?’” Carewyn couldn’t help but repeat, raising her eyebrows primly. “Seems like a harsh way to judge people – I reckon everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses.”

“Well, yes,” acknowledged Percy, “but again, he is a businessman. One has to make calculated risks, in that kind of a position. And his judgements seem rather sound – he even mentioned having a woman on his payroll, helping him track down pirates.”

He shot Carewyn a rather meaningful look. She could surmise what he was thinking – if Cutler Beckett allowed women to work for him, perhaps Carewyn could too and not have to hide her gender anymore. Being sure to hide her disgust at the thought of working for the man who had branded Orion a pirate, she gave a light shake of the head.

“As much as I respect the man for his inclusivity…I am a Navy officer, and I take pride in fighting for the crown.”

‘More than I ever would fighting for a private citizen whose moral code seems to be distinctly self-aggrandizing.’

She placed a gentle hand on Percy’s shoulder and gave it a light squeeze.

“…And really…what I want first and foremost is to look after my home and my family – namely, you. I feel a soldier is better equipped to do that than a pirate hunter.”

Percy smiled slightly, clearly touched by her caring, but he tried to stay serious.

“…Well, that’s a noble thought, Carey,” he mumbled, “but I daresay Lord Beckett would be a bit disappointed.”

“Most assuredly.”

Carewyn turned around, startled.

A man only about two inches taller than her had arrived up on the wall of the fort. He wore a white powdered wig under a black velvet tricorn hat and a gold-embroidered vest with his suit, and his face on first glance gave Carewyn the distinct impression that this was a tiny man who fancied himself to be a lot bigger than he actually was. Carewyn herself had always been on the small side, but she made up for it with her confidence, strong moral code, and work ethic – this man seemed to be the sort to puff himself up through very different means.

“Lord Beckett!” said Percy, startled.

“Captain Percy Weasley, good to see you,” said Beckett in a breezy tone that indicated to Carewyn he didn’t truly believe the sentiment at all. His eyes had fallen on Carewyn, narrowing slightly as he gave a rather stony smile. “Commodore Carey Weasley – we meet at last.”
