Title: What’s in a Name?
Canon: Black Sails
Pairing: James Flint/John Silver
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]

Summary: Some conversations in the dark between Flint and Silver, set during episode 3×09. They have a moment alone in the Maroon camp, after Mr Scott’s death, and what begins as curiosity and sharing develops into rather a lot more.
Recommendation: I love the poignant, almost symbolic exchange of real names. But it’s more than that, it’s a baring of true selves and the trust that it won’t be used against them. So lovely.
