It’s you. It’s always been you.
The Musketeers - Opening Credits (The Tudors Style)
fuck this shit
it is entirely inconsistent with elizabeth’s character for her to drop everything (PIRATE KING thank you very much) to raise a child as a landlubber
give me elizabeth, eight months pregnant, still running the show from shipwreck cove
give me elizabeth and her six-year-old
soncabin boy kicking ass and taking names as they outrun the royal navy
give me elizabeth, instead of waiting for will, sailing out to meet him
give me elizabeth dying at sea four years and one week later and signing aboard the flying dutchman to the shock of its captain
give me elizabeth and will co-captaining the dutchman and sailing the seas beyond the edge of the world for eternity together
give me young billy (i’m forced to assume they, as pirates, are unimaginative when it comes to names) telling the story of william turner, who gave up everything for the woman he loved, and elizabeth swann, who took it back with sword and pistol
something always bothered me about that ending and now I know what it was god bless
♔ “Although Elizabeth’s gender was a disappointment to Henry, the magnificent christening that had been planned still went ahead, and she was proclaimed Princess, the title to the heir of the throne. For the first three years of her life, Elizabeth occupied a central place in her father’s affections, and Henry proudly paraded his infant daughter around court. But following her mother’s execution in 1536, Elizabeth was declared a bastard, and Henry neglected his young daughter. Initially, Henry scarcely saw his daughter, but would communicate with her by messenger, and Elizabeth soon proved to be the kind of daughter of whom any father would be proud. It was Henry who filled Elizabeth’s world, and in 1542, there was a rapprochement between Henry and Elizabeth, which utterly wiped out whatever resentments she may have harboured after her own earlier treatment, or that of her mother. In 1544, Henry reinstated both his daughters to the succession, and basking in Henry’s attention, Elizabeth referred to her him as ‘matchless and most kind father’. The following January, Elizabeth lost the giant of a father whom she revered, and upon hearing the news of his death, she and her brother Edward threw themselves into each others arms, and wept uncontrollably.”

Constance, take Henry!
"I am a princess. All girls are. Even if they live in tiny old attics. Even if they dress in rags, even if they aren’t pretty, or smart, or young. They’re still princesses. All of us. Didn’t your father ever tell you that? Didn’t he?"

Montparnasse, self-proclaimed Prince of Darkness.
There’s nothing wrong with vanity and nothing wrong with greed, so long as it’s in the right hands. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with lust or pride or gluttony; in fact, Montparnasse seeks to encompass all seven of the ‘deadly’ sins, and he does it with the grace of a dancer and the elegance of a bourgeois lord.
But don’t mistake those rings for fancy costume pieces. He’s left enough marks with those for every man with a skull-shaped scar on his jaw or ribs or the back of his head to know his name.
