    Summary

    “That will do, gentlemen” Chauncey turned to address the guards “Thank you for escorting us. Now, if you would be kind enough to help me lift him into the dingy so I can take him to my ship”

    Stede began to protest that he was perfectly capable of getting into the rowboat himself, thank you very much, when he felt something solid strike the back of his head. He had a moment to wonder if this is how Nigel felt before everything went black.

    or

    What if Chauncey never fell and killed himself? Instead, Stede was rebranded a criminal and chained up on Chauncey's ship where he is questioned about the whereabouts of Blackbeard. Stede will protect Ed until the day he dies and if that's what he must do to protect him then so be it.

    Summary

    “What is it this time? Here to tell me you miss me, and you should never have let me go?”

    The blood left Stede’s face.

    “Or you’ll tell me you hate me,” Ed continued, “Is that it? You want to watch me bleed tonight?” His eyes raked over Stede. “Or maybe you’ll tell me how you want me, and you’ll pull me into bed with you, and turn into ashes in my mouth.” 

    “If you think this is-”

    But Ed kept talking, as if Stede hadn’t spoken. “I don’t know if you’ve heard the news, Stede Bonnet, but the game’s up. You’re not dead anymore. So you can fuck right off. Back to wherever ghosts go.”

    ++

    Ed's been seeing ghosts. Stede's got something to get off his chest.

    Summary

    Stede loses all hope of a better life after serving on a “real” pirate ship with his crew after a failed attempt to get back to the Revenge. He’s a changed man with scars and flinches that were never there before, but he's at least a competent sailor and fighter now.

    Blackbeard's barely hanging in there, holed up in his cabin more often than not. He's even been banned from going on raids after an incident that left Izzy Hands frantic to come up with one last plan to try to save his captain. When Izzy finds Stede on a raid, he takes him back to the Revenge to try to get Blackbeard back.

    Blackbeard hates Stede, but he still wants him, and Stede still wants him too. They come to an agreement that brings them closer together while keeping them bitterly apart. Two broken men muddle through their past experiences and heartbreak, picking up the pieces and slowly coming back to life as they come back to each other (while Izzy and the remaining crew members try to help).

    Summary

    Ed finds the pelt in a chest hidden beneath the sink in the bathroom past the auxiliary closet weeks after marooning most of the crew. With nothing else of Stede's left, it becomes the one thing that he can turn to for comfort, the last reminder of the man who left him—though he has no idea just how true the tie between it and Stede is.

    -

    Or: the one where Stede's a selkie, and in some ways, it changes everything.
