    Summary

    In my continuing quest to post like the nichest possible content, here's a Black Sails modern AU kinda set in the RocknRolla universe.
    For folks who've seen Black Sails but not RocknRolla, the painting is the Urca Gold.
    For folks who've seen RocknRolla but not Black Sails, Jack and crew are analogous to Cookie and the group, Max is the Tank, Lord Hamilton is Len, Mr. Scott is Archie, Eleanor is the accountant, and Woodes Rogers is the lawyer.

    All of this is basically an excuse to write domestic Max/Anne and Jack/Charles.

    Summary

    “He knows this man’s name, and the Taskmaster does not know his. In this, if only this, Charles holds the power. How he came to know his own name he can no longer say, but it is as much a part of him as his own heartbeat.

    He is not Boy, or You, or That One. He is Charles Vane, and he plans to remain so. Even now. Even through this.”

    A fix-it fic that couldn’t stay in its lane, and turned into a life’s story for Chas <3

    VaneRackham (eventually) and canon-divergent from the events of s3e9 on. Chapter count is an estimation; it may be longer. It almost certainly will not be shorter. Character and content tags will be updated as chapters are added.

    Archive warning is for chapter 2 only.

    ShortJohnSilver is the Unsinkable Beta Reader and also the best <3

    Summary

    Jack’s nearly free with the treasure and the other half of himself when he realises, with some horror, that it isn’t going to be enough.

    Summary

    Gates had seen them before, he recalled, years ago now, scarred on a bony chest through an ill-fitting shirt’s open collar, and for a fraction of a moment entertained the idea that those first rumors they had heard about Jack Rackham could have been true.

    -

    Or, Charles Vane has a new crewmember and he is rather unusual.

    Summary

    Charles Vane was often described as a cruel man, a vicious tyrannical wizard who got what he wanted at whatever cost. He would often be heard about in whispers at taverns, each story worse than the last. Everyone who had been anywhere knew of his name and it wasn’t for any good reason. All the stories about him spread fear of his name. Inciting people to stay clear of him and his business. Except that none of their stories were true, at least not in the way people were thinking.

    Summary

    Panic began to rise through him, choking him, his breath coming in short, gasping pants. His hands clutched tightly at the cracked porcelain basin, knuckles white with the force, and he forced himself to take slow, deep breaths. They had no reason to come and find him, not for a few days at least, not until the body surfaced, and by then, he’d have his bags and would be halfway across the country with a share of five million dollars, enough to hide from anyone who might want him dead.

     

    or

    John Silver, new on the New York gang scene, struggles to his head above the water as his demons try their best to drown him. Of course, it would help if he hadn't allied himself with the most dangerous and ruthless man of all, James Flint, leader of the infamous Black Sails.

    With the FBI closing in and the gangs of New York out for blood, John knows that his only shot at surviving the web of trouble he's found himself tangled in rests with the most dangerous of men.

    Summary

    He feels so small when Teach places a rough, thick hand around his chin, just firm enough to make him still. Teach's gaze is sharp and steady, scrutinizing every sin and scar Jack is sure he can see on his face. Despite the quavering of Jack's knees, he refuses to look away.

     

    Teach considers him for a long moment. Jack does not breathe.

    Summary

    Jack is a writer and he has worked hard to get where he is now. It’s great! He loves it…he just wishes the person dedicating terrible poetry to him would stop. But then he sees their face and he is in trouble. Because that man is gorgeous.

    Summary

    Anne was out with Max and Eleanor. His knight in shining armor, his Nurse Ratchett, nowhere to be found. He supposed he could wait another day, presuming she spent the night out, more and more lesbians gravitating to her side as the night went on like the great sapphic star that she was.

    But Jack was already feeling the effects of the hormonal withdrawal, and it would only get worse the longer he waited. This left him with two options:

    One: he’d suck it up and do it himself. This method had a roughly 25% chance of success, as the last time he’d tried it he’d barely gotten the safety cap off the needle before passing out.

    Two: he’d get Charles to do it.

    Which would of course be the easiest, except for the small, tiny matter. Teeny really. Just the tiniest little issue that, of course. He just. He wasn’t out to Charles.

    Summary

    Your quartermaster lives mostly in the corner of your eye, dogging your steps like a half-formed shadow. He would look foolish except that he doesn’t. It suits him perfectly, this way of being—at your side, a half-step behind, your eyes and your voice and your other hand. He’s never called you Captain seriously. Even in the beginning, some twist of his voice told you that he took it as a joke, and it made your blood boil with tempered rage, but he was a sharp rigger and a sharper quartermaster, and eventually he started calling you Charles, that same twist in his flighty sparrow-voice, and somehow that was alright, wasn’t it?

    Summary

    "All he can give her is this, now – a place beside him in this grave, where so much of him is buried. He will have to put her to rest here; he cannot do it in Nassau. He cannot do it at sea. He cannot do it at all, as he is now. One more piece of him, the piece he gave her, will have to be left here too.

    He may not deserve to be free of it, but Jack does."

    The Queen is dead.

    Five million dollars in Spanish gold sits inside a crumbling fort.

    Charles deals with the ghosts; Jack deals with the treasure.

    (Vanerackham with past Eleanor/Charles, set between S2 and S3)

    Summary

    "Jack had several strings of words surface in his mind, each more outlandish than the last. The last time he’d laid his eyes on John Silver, there was a gun pointed to his face."

    The Rangers have a surprise visitor while laying low between jobs.
