DarkHawk is the pairing name for the crossover pairing involving the characters Ross Poldark and Jim Hawkins—specifically, the versions of the characters from the 2015 TV adaption of Poldark (with Aidan Turner as Ross Poldark) and the 1996 TV film Return to Treasure Island (with Dean O'Gorman as Jim Hawkins). The actors also played the brothers Fíli and Kíli in The Hobbit (film series). Yes the fandom crossover is a stretch.

The pairing apparently started when Tumblr user azulgrana-fcb posted a gifset that matched Jim Hawkins and Ross Poldark and tumblr user my-trex-has-fleas / darkhawkflying saw it and started to write the pairing[1]

There is not yet a canonical fandom tag on the Archive Of Our Own, but there is a Jim Hawkins/Ross Poldark pairing tag, which had 63 fanworks as of January 21, 2016.

Tumblr may be the center of this fandom, with fanart, gifsets, playlists, meta and fanfic. However, the DarkHawk tag also contains content about the Marvel superhero Darkhawk.
