    Summary

    “The teal pillow is the door.”

    Summary

    Stede is an alpha hiring a live-in personal assistant to help with his research (betas only need apply). Mary is his beta wife who changes the ad to say omegas only, looking to hire her eccentric husband a friend ( and maybe something more). Edward Teach ( an omega with secrets of his own ) comes to interview for the job as he is in need of the lucrative amount of money the job offers. When Mary and Stede both hire Ed for the position, things are set in motion that cannot be easily undone, but maybe, they don't want things to go back to how they were before Ed came along.

    (No one gets quite what they asked for, but they all end up with what they need).

    Summary

    Ed never thought he would find his wordkeeper. No one alive would dare say the words inscribed on his hip to him. Not at first meeting. And not if they wanted to keep their tongue. But then Izzy comes back with a message from a new guy on the scene, calling himself the Gentleman Pirate. A message that matches his wordmark. And for the first time in so long, Ed feels intrigued. And then Ed feels a whole lot more.

    Too bad he has no idea that Stede was too delirious when they met to remember Ed's first words to him.

    Summary

    “I’ll let my son know you and your husband enjoyed it,” the salesman continued, offering a kind smile like he was completely oblivious to the words he just spoke. Stede, meanwhile, nearly had to steady himself against a tree as his heart lurched out of place. His husband. Had he died? Was this a punishment the universe decided to wrought on him, for ruining what had to be dozens of gardens as a child? Stede and his husband. His husband. Stede was trying very, very hard not to pass out. Or look at Ed. Or appear as if he were trying very hard to not do either. “He’d be glad to know of others like him, strangers though we may be.”

    “Oh,” Stede squeaked. He felt like he had been doused in cold water only to emerge from it to find himself on the ceiling. “Um. Thank— Thank you, sir, um. We’d better be off now, thank you.”

    Summary

    “Honestly?” Izzy finally rasped. He watched Ed, waiting for confirmation that he understood he was about to be quite candid. “My plan for the day was t’ talk some fuckin’ sense into ya,” he said in a resigned exhale.
    He waited for Edward to groan, roll his eyes, complain loudly and just be generally obstinate. But he didn’t; he smiled. It wasn’t a bitter sarcastic smirk either but a grin that seemed genuinely warm, if perhaps slightly bemused.
    Izzy felt himself jerk back in surprise as he scanned Ed’s body language up and down. “The fuck are ya lookin’ at me like that for?” He snapped.
    “I think I finally get you, Iz. It’s fuckin’ nuts.”
    Izzy shook his head, eyes widening in disbelief as he felt a traitorous flush warm his cheeks. “No. I don’t know what the fuck you’re talkin’ about!” He turned and stomped away to lean on the dining table.


    Or: What if Ed realized the pain he was experiencing in ep10 was of a kind with what Izzy had felt about him for so long? What if he spoke the unspoken? What if Izzy never threatened "Edward" and he never became The Kraken? What if the crew of the Revenge helped a pair of idiots out of their toxic patterns and they found happiness? And then Stede arrived

    Summary

    “Put. It. Down.” Soft, deadly, Edward gave a final warning, watching Izzy’s face. “I won't shoot you unless you make me.”

     

    Izzy laughed, hollow and humorless. “Right, because you caaaaaare about me, do you,” he half-sang, sneering. “Because I’m your friend,” his mouth twisted on the word, “is that it, Edward?” He inhaled, and let it out in a shaky sigh, the frantic energy dissipated. “No, Ed. We’re not friends. We never were.” He looked sad, Edward thought, and his gut twinged and his eyes widened as Izzy wrapped his free arm around Stede again and brought the blade away from his throat, holding it high.

     

    Izzy's hand began a slow, deliberate arch, and he stared into Edward’s eyes as he brought the knife down toward Stede’s heart.

     

    “Don’t-“ Stede cried.

     

    Edward fired.

     

     

    When Edward shoots Izzy to protect Stede, the entire reunited crew must figure out how to move forward. (**COMPLETE** releasing a new chapter every day; opt-in explicit scenes included in TFMD: The Expansion)

    Summary

    It's the week after Memorial Day in 1987. Stede Bonnet is a massive fuck up and he knows it. In a desperate and poorly thought out attempt to apologize to Ed, he finds that he isn't going to get the opportunity and is now having to live with the consequences of his own actions.

    Summary

    It is 1987, and Stede Bonnet has chosen his wife and unborn daughter over Ed. It was an easy choice, really. Really. And Stede doesn’t need to apologize, really he doesn’t. Not when apologetics are so much easier.

    OR: Stede reasons his way out of love and into duty after he makes the fatal choice in the Piña coladas SMAU

    Summary

    This fic is the slowest of slow burns. It was intentionally written to build gradually as a cohesive narrative that expands over time because you can't get a good emotional release without FOREPLAY.

    What if Ed didn't go full 'Evil-Ed' post Stede? How would Izzy react to an Ed that still wasn't quite right even though Bonnet was gone?

    What would it be like if they thought Stede Bonnet was fucking dead, but then he wasn't?

    Themes include: grief, loss, guilt, forgiveness, hurting people you love, healing, backsliding, the effects of childhood trauma, consent, power dynamics.

    There will be no themes of sexual assault/violence in excess of the show.

    I'm not over tagging this jawn because I don't want to spoil the whole story ahead of time. Where's the fun if you know half of what you can expect from the tags alone. Don't you just want to let a story unfold, friend?

    Fuck counter: 237 fucks (I mean the word. They haven't fucked 237 times. That would be ludicrous)

    Summary

    After an ill-fated visit to a very strange island, Edward Teach and Stede Bonnet wake up in each others' bodies.

    ---

    Just a silly lil bodyswap fic because every fandom needs one. This takes place somewhere around their co-captaincy, before the British and before the Act of Grace. Ed knows he has feelings for Stede, but Stede is still oblivious.

    Although this is a bodyswap fic, I've tried not to make it too predictable and to play with people's expectations a little.

    This is the world of OFMD, but with some magical elements. But don't worry, I'm making the magic something etheral and elemental, so there will be no problematic misuse of actual religions and their beliefs.

    I suppose bodyswaps by their nature have some dubcon, so a warning for that I guess? This one'll get a little bit smuttier than my other stories, but nothing too extreme.

    Summary

    Ed woke in the grey light as usual. He knew exactly where he was and who he was with, because he’d spent hours lying awake mentally replaying every word, every touch, every look. The only surprise was that he’d slept at all.

    Usually he’d roll out of bed at this time, have a piss and find his jacket, and get on with the day. But this morning, looking at Stede’s outline in the faint light, he reckoned he might stay in bed a while.

    Pretty fucking big change.

    Absolutely one he’d been campaigning for, and hard. Still a lot to happen all at once.
