    Summary

    It turns out Davy Jones’ locker is less of an actual locker, and more of a shipwrecked frigate at the bottom of the ocean, preserved inside an air pocket the size of a volcano. And Davy Jones himself is not the fiery eyed, smoke wreathed monster of legend, but a normal looking man. Something of a dandy, even, for a pirate. Hair and beard neatly trimmed, shot through with streaks of grey, cream-coloured waistcoat and breeches in the modern fashion, and a carved bone pipe that he sucks on thoughtfully before saying, “What the fuck’s a Stede Bonnet?”

    *******

    Stede dies. Ed brings him back.

    Summary

    Being on the Revenge was like being cocooned in Stede’s zealously theatrical yet heartfelt personality at all times – smothered in frills and truffles and tiny little pots of something called 'moisturiser' that Ed absolutely did not understand, but really did appear to do wonders for his perpetually wind chafed cheeks – and if it was like that, then being in the auxiliary wardrobe was like being in the absolute heart of him, cuddling up to the veins and vessels that made his blood pump around. Stede was still here, even when Ed was alone.

    So if that was the case, that quiet voice deep in the depths of Ed wondered tentatively, what if – what if Stede found him here, all cozied up like this? What if Stede liked it, that Ed came here alone, and what if he – what if he decided to touch Ed, really touch him, right here amid the racks of finery?

    ---

    In which Ed tries on some clothes, learns a few things about living in the lap of luxury, and makes fantasy into reality.

    Summary

    Captains Grey and Edwards, retired merchant sailors, moved to town a couple of years ago. Tom, the local pub landlord, has spent most of the time since trying to ignore the many, many things they do that directly contradict who they're claiming to be. Still, it's all worth it to have the protection of two legendary pirates for the town.

    Sorry, not legendary pirates. Merchant captains. Who are just best friends and definitely nothing else.

    Summary

    “Yes,” Lucius says, at the same time Izzy says, “No,” and Lucius and Mary smile at each other with a look of long-suffering patience for men, for their tender hearts and the prisons they make for themselves.

    Summary

    Stede figures out how to win Ed back. He also figures out himself. The two are not mutually exclusive.
