    Summary

    There isn't much that Izzy Hands felt like he needed. He was Blackbeard's first mate. He had station and respect. There wasn't much else a pirate could need. Most pirates didn't have the misfortune of being childhood friends of Stede Bonnet.

    “We found each other once, Israel. We can do it again.” Stede moved to press their foreheads together. He smiled, warm and brilliant. “I will find you again and again and again. Every time we are apart, know that I am not spending a second not searching for you or thinking of you. You are home, Israel. As long as you have me and my crew you have a home.”

    Izzy Hands isn't a romantic kind of man but he was in desperate need of a home.

    The continuation of the childhood friends AU that I love so dearly.

    Summary

    Summary

    “Hey, so, those two, right, they get together in the end?” Ed asks.

    “I would protest spoiling it, but I think it's rather obvious, isn't it?” Stede says. His nose wrinkles as he smiles. “The tension is certainly there from the beginning. It just takes them a while to get there.”

    “Good. Would have been a shit story otherwise."

     

    Former local grunge legend Edward Teach, better known as Blackbeard of Blackbeard & the Krakens, has fallen on hard times. Following slanderous accusations from ex-bandmate (and ex-lover) Calico Jack, Ed is blacklisted from all his usual venues. His career is over, and, so far as he’s concerned, so is his life. He spends his days wallowing in a dingy Seattle apartment, fighting with his manager and bemoaning his loss of purpose.

    Enter one Stede Bonnet, Ed’s obnoxiously loud next-door-neighbor. Stede Bonnet is an overly enthusiastic playwright who cares way too much about Shakespeare and writes like a dandy from the 18th century.

    He’s the most interesting thing to happen to Ed in years.

    Summary

    Israel Hands did not ask for this. He’s supposed to be running a restaurant, not taking a week long vacation to fucking Florida of all places.

    But Edward’s ecstatic and Stede is annoying as ever. And Lucius? Lucius just won’t leave him alone.

    Summary

    He just stood there gaping like a fish, trying to puzzle out what the fuck he said because he genuinely hadn't been thinking when he spoke. Now they were looking at him cold, expectant, with a raised eyebrow. When he couldn't answer them, they scoffed quietly, a bitter, breathy thing, and decidedly stalked off.

    Israel Hands felt empty, he had a distinct feeling he fucked up, and it hurt. It hurt almost as much as watching Stede fucking Bonnet run off with his captain again. He didn't want to examine that feeling right now.

    Summary

    Stede sinks down on the bed, nightshirt clutched tightly in his hands. “I… haven’t been entirely honest with you,” he says, avoiding eye contact.

    “If you’re about to tell me you’re married, it’s a little late for that, mate,” Edward says, trying to lighten the mood, but Stede doesn’t smile.

    “It’s about… my body,” Stede begins, clearly searching desperately for the right words. “I’m not like other men.”

    “I’ll say not,” Ed says. Stede looks at him, and there’s fear, actual fear in his eyes. “Whatever it is, I love you. Just tell me.”

    Summary

    In which:

    Izzy struggles to come to terms with his new limitations after having his tongue amputated. He tries to resign, but the crew and captains are having none of it.

    Ed and Stede try to explain to Izzy, with help from Lucius, that they don’t want him getting hurt to protect them again. Izzy does not understand.

    Feelings and relationships are finally discussed. The hands will be steadied so help me

    -
    Edward rubs his face, looking tired and stressed. He seems just as out of his depth, in this moment, with talking about his feelings as Izzy feels. “Yeah that’s the thing, Iz. Your loyalty. It’s the problem, it’s too much.”

    That feels like a stab to the heart. Hand shaking, Izzy writes “I’ve never failed you.”

    Spriggs reads over his shoulder and sighs. “Yeah, no that’s not what he’s saying.”

    Izzy stares at the page, looking for the problem, the contradiction. He flips Lucius off and makes a motion to read it out.

    “He doesn’t understand. He says he’s never failed you.”

    “We care about you, mate. We don’t want you hurting yourself to protect us anymore.”

    Summary

    Ed had thought so many times about this meeting. About what he would say to Stede Bonnet. About all the angry things he would tell him. All the pain he would hurl at Stede.

    What he hadn’t expected was the cold look on Stede’s face, or for Stede to draw his sword and hold it out toward Ed.

    He definitely hadn’t expected the sheer fury in Stede Bonnet’s voice as he said, voice strong and unwavering, “Edward Teach. Draw your weapon.”

    .

    Or, Stede and crew retake the Revenge after weeks of chasing it. The boys have some shit to work through. And Ed has a lot of apologizing to do. So does Stede, but he didn't throw anyone overboard or abandon the crew on a deserted islet. So mostly Ed has to apologize.

    OR: Months after reuniting and reconciling, The Revenge goes looting. Afterwards, Stede and Ed talk recovery and self-image, then fuck in front of a mirror. That’s it that’s the fic.

    Summary

    “No, no, this is different,” Lucius said. “Look, he got stabbed, right? He nearly died. When I went in to check on him he was lying in bed half dressed and Blackbeard was sitting next to him staring at his chest.”

    “He probably just knows a lot about medicine,” Pete said.

    “What, tit medicine?” Lucius asked. He could hear the edge of hysteria in his voice.

    “No, like, he was looking for signs of infection by counting Captain’s breaths,” Pete said. “Or something.”

    “That is not a thing,” Roach said.

    Lucius thinks there's something going on between Blackbeard and Captain Bonnet. The rest of the crew think that he's lost his mind.

    Summary

    What if, when Blackbeard requested Lucius's services in episode 10, he meant Lucius's infamous sketching abilities, not his emo poetry-scribing skills?

    This imagining has Lucius & Ed getting more explicit about what happened on the dock, because Ed is unable to hide behind his entirely fictional character when he's *literally* laid bare.

    Summary

    A continuation of the canon Our Flag Means Death through what I'd see as a season 2. To be followed be a 3 by me. I kept it as though something that could be filmed and aired, there's enough sexy stories for a lifetime on here anyway (if u want to remix it as sexy you go ahead)

    Summary

    Ed focused on keeping his breathing steady. This is ridiculous, a voice in his mind said. You cannot be this weak-kneed over holding hands with this guy. You’re motherfucking Blackbeard. And you aren’t even holding hands! He gulped but held still. He couldn’t pull away, not when Stede’s hand was on top. That would be rude.

    After becoming co-captains, Ed is determined to woo Stede like a proper gentleman deserves. Only he isn't entirely sure how, and Ed is terrified of ruining their friendship in the process. Just as the lovebirds are nearly on the same page, Calico Jack arrives and throws a wrench into all of Ed's plans. Now they're on the run from the British and will have to stay alive long enough to get the chance to tell each other how they truly feel.

    (This is a romance novel, first and foremost.)

    Summary

    He liked Stede. Not just as a friend, or a crewmate. He liked Stede, with an inflection on that second word that belonged to brainless youths kissing behind the stables, not pirate captains with bad knees and more salt than pepper in their beards.

    It would be so much better if he was just attracted to Stede. That was normal. That was manageable. You just made a move and got it out of your system. If you were turned down, well, you moved on. Easy. But he didn’t just want to sleep with Stede. (And he definitely wanted to sleep with Stede.) What he wanted was so much weirder.

    Ed has a crush on Stede Bonnet and it is sooo embarrassing.

    Summary

    Post Season 1.

    It had been a month since he’d faked his own death and found his crew marooned on a deserted island. Thoughts of Blackbeard consumed him. He left his crew for dead, Lucius was missing, Jim and Frenchie taken prisoner aboard the Revenge, all of his possessions tossed overboard….He knew the man he loved was gone, replaced by the monster. But another part of him knew Ed, he knew there must be a good reason he did those things.

    He needed to see him. He needed to find out why.

    Summary

    “You need to get yourself out there, Captain,” Lucius says. “Meet new people, try new things, then you won’t ever think about Blackbeard again.”

    Getting himself out there and meeting new people doesn’t seem like a bad idea at all, not with the few modifications he has in mind. His scribe might just be on to something.

    “Lucius,” Stede says, snapping his fingers. “That’s genius!”

    Lucius smirks. “Well, of course it is.”

    Stede hops off the couch. “You’re right! I do need to get back out there!” He begins to pace around the room. “Show pirate society what a menace the Gentleman Pirate has become, how finely I’ve honed my skills. Get everyone talking about the newest up and coming pirate captain hailing from Barbados.” He turns to Lucius grinning. “I’ve been going about this all wrong, I’ve been so focused on finding Ed, but I should have instead made it so he would want to find me!”

    or; hoping that spreading his reputation will lead him back to Ed, Stede unwittingly attracts the attention of other pirates as well.
