    Summary

    It's weird, being back in his hometown again. Stede hadn't properly lived there since he was shipped off to boarding school at thirteen. Now he's back full time and snippets of memories from the one summer he was truly happy keep flashing in his mind. Memories of a boy with a bright smile and an even brighter personality. Too bad Stede doesn't even remember the boy's name.

    Running a traveling carnival is a bit of a grind. It used to be fun, once, but now Ed's bored to death of the whole fucking thing. Nothing is exciting like it once was; nothing brings him joy. That is, until he meets a certain hot dilf.

    Summary

    “I left them. All alone, in the middle of the night. I didn’t even say goodbye. Just wrote a ridiculous note. And now…” Stede lets out a labored breath. “They think I’m dead.”

    “Fine, then I’m going with you,” Ed says without thinking. He knows the second the words come out of his mouth that it’s a stupid idea, but he doesn’t care. He’s had stupider ideas in his life, even acted on most of them. “If you have to go back to them, to check on them, or whatever, then I’m going with you.”

    “Ed… that is a monumentally terrible idea,” Stede tries, voicing Ed’s own thoughts. “How would I explain who you are? Or why you’re with me? Besides, you’d be miserable. You don’t belong in that life. You’d hate it.”

    “I don’t fucking care,” Ed insists. He twists his fingers up in Stede’s loose-fitting shirt, the fabric ripping slightly as he does. “I’d rather be miserable in some stupid, posh town than miserable anywhere else without you.”

    ...

    Ed goes back to Stede's family with him and watches from the sidelines as he tries to mend what he broke by leaving.

    Summary

    When Prince Stede Bonnet saw his betrothed for the first time, he very nearly blushed.

    Edward Teach was a fearsome thing: pirate turned warlord, scourge of the continent. He wore black armor and bristled with weapons, including his famous sword, the Queen’s Revenge. The notorious beard which had earned him his nickname was gray now, but still full and menacing. They were almost of a height, but Stede felt dreadfully small in his presence.

    Blackbeard had taken one look at Stede and grunted his approval. And Stede had almost blushed.

    Summary

    In a last ditch effort to save his crumbling marriage, Stede Bonnet decides to take an early retirement to focus on his family. His plan: to have a beautiful, custom tiny home built in secret to travel the country with his wife and children.

    Edward Teach has been building tiny homes for nearly a decade, and after so many builds under his belt they tend to become standard and repetitive - until an inquiry comes in asking for the most ridiculous, expensive, and quite possibly impossible request he's ever received.
