    Summary

    When they met it always seemed that way. Here was an Israel willing to listen (I'm listening, he'd said that first day, on a path in the jungle with birdsong around them), an Israel who wanted to be vulnerable. And here was a Stede who did not apologize for liking the taste of power (I kind of enjoyed it, he'd said, the brush of palms against the back of his thighs).

    They had left their masks at the door tonight.

    Somehow, Izzy Hands and Stede Bonnet have found an equilibrium. It's a precarious one, one they both assume has everything to do with Edward's last order as Izzy's Captain: that Izzy stay as Stede's first mate. Tied together by Ed's desire to keep them both close, they try to make it work — and it does, as long as they both keep ignoring the burgeoning respect that might turn into something more.

    However, when Stede realizes his feelings, he panics, and a reckless decision changes everything...

    Summary

    “Oh, sorry. I guess you wouldn’t know that, would you,” Jack says, the smirk turning to a shark’s grin. “How’s it feel, Stede, knowing I got to both of them first?”

    Summary

    After a health scare, Stede wishes that he and Ed had met when they were younger. It turns out the healer they brought Ed to is also a witch, and she's decided to be generous.

    But is it what either of them really want? You should always be careful what you wish for.

    Summary

    Aging stripper and sex worker Edward Teach is the king of The Body Shop, an underground queer club. One day, a mysterious stranger who tips everyone generously except for him comes into the club. Ed is intrigued and irritated, and wants to know more about this stranger.

    Fashion designer Stede Bonnet is a recently separated man who escapes to The Body Shop to tease out the life he'd rather have. He came for sexual titilation, but finds himself fascinated with the headline dancer in a way that feels more significant than dancer and patron.

    Although their chemistry is genuine and powerful, they come from very different worlds. Neither is prepared for how their respective fame - one public, one underground - will complicate their relationship and get in the way of happiness.

    ---

    This story was formerly called "The Body Shop" but I decided to rename it when I realized this story isn't really about the club - it's about a relationship between two men with very different reputations and images to protect. Think Moulin Rouge or Pretty Woman, but make it really gay.

    Summary

    Reunions, communication, found family, craft therapy, a nice bath, two (2) blowjobs for a gentleman, and finding as many excuses as possible to rub your dick on silk.

    Or: Five times Ed mentions mermaids, and one time Stede rashly tries to run with it.

    Summary

    If you'd asked Ed Teach a year ago what he thought his life would be like today, he definitely would not have guessed that he'd be running a business he's actually proud of again, dating the truest physical embodiment of sunshine that could ever be found in another person, and surrounded by a bizarre found family he would do anything for, he would've told you to fuck off.

    That was a year ago, though.

    The big question he faces today: Is 6 months into a relationship too soon to try and get Stede Bonnet to move in with him?

    Summary

    After being accused for the murder of Nigel Badminton, cursed by the Wizard of the Waste, and forced to deliver a love letter to Blackbeard, Stede can’t catch the one break he needs:

    A way to actually break this damn curse!

    To do it, he needs to survive a cantankerous flame demon, the Republic of Wizards, and a horde of unexpected friends—and that’s just the tip of the nose jar.

    It's all worth it in the end for the treasure Stede finds at the heart of the Wizard Blackbeard's ship.

    An adaptation of Studio Ghibli’s Howl's Moving Castle with the cast and crew of Our Flag Means Death.

    Summary

    “You, uh.” Stede hesitates, not sure how, exactly, to phrase what he wants to ask. “How do you know a Portuguese prison guard, then?”

    Izzy shrugs. “I get around.”

    [Five times Stede witnesses people reacting particularly curiously to Izzy, plus the one time he finds out what other skill Izzy is known for across the seven seas. Or, as Ed puts it: “Izzy’s been leaving a string of broken hearts and aching dicks all across the Caribbean for the last twenty-odd years.”]

    Summary

    Islington, 1989. Stede Bonnet’s knowledge of London’s gay scene is lacking in everything but rose-tinted glasses, as he leaves his marriage to run a halfway-house for ‘waifs and strays’ in the city centre.

    Izzy Hands, the best mate of Bonnet’s new paramour, has been without those glasses for years.

    OR: an 80’s AU from two different sides of the coin. Also, Ed runs a Greasy Spoon café, and Lucius has a great deal of shit to outrun.

    Summary

    Title should be changed because there is so much talking. SO MUCH TALKING. Between everyone.

    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: 484 fucks (I mean the word. They haven't fucked 484 times. That would be ludicrous)

    Summary

    Stede Bonnet is a merman who longs to be a pirate. When the chance comes along for him to have legs, he jumps onboard. However, in order to keep them, he has to kill or seduce a pirate captain in two weeks. Easy, right?

     

    Title of this fic is a line from the song "Calypso" by John Denver.

    Summary

    History shows that Stede Bonnet hunted down Blackbeard to kill him after they parted ways in December of 1717. As it turns out, history is told by the loudest.

    On his search to reunite with Ed and declare his undying love, Stede makes a few new allies that might turn out to be enemies. He'll need to convince them to help him in his search or risk losing Ed forever. And on his search to reunite with Stede and stab him to death, Blackbeard finds himself a new enemy that might just turn out to be a friend. Maybe she can help drown out the noise and show him the way forward.

    Summary

    Heartbreak can make people do monstrous things

    Of course, you can make a promise to spend forever with someone giving up everything you knew, earned, and all your tiles. Because you love someone. It should be enough.

    But it’s not because the universe is big and people want to keep those in love apart.

    Even if technically it’s not his fault. Ed thought it was his fault. The catalyst wasn't Stede everything after was but by the time Ed knew that it was too late to take it back.

    Love will make you do monstrous and wonderful things. It could also turn you into a monster. All that grief and rage and the prodding of Izzy. Ed did become the Kraken. 

    A part of the Kraken, part of that monstrous manifestation. He took broken bones and blood and destroy ships. Ran a fleet and he knew as long as no one hit his heart he would live forever.

    Ed didn’t want to be alone forever. How could he? So maybe while he was drunk he called out a curse for Stede Bonnet to live as long as he would.

    And maybe it’s stuck.
