    Summary

    Stede, a history professor specializing in the golden age of piracy, is fascinated when art professor Edward Teach joins his humble university’s faculty. Even more fascinating are the rumors that Ed is actually the famous, anonymous artist, Blackbeard. Stede falls a little bit in love. Then a lot.

    Across the academic year, Stede tips headfirst into dizzying romance, mind-blowing sex, and happiness he couldn't have dreamed up if he'd tried. He learns lessons he never knew he needed, forcing him to reevaluate everything from his career goals to his relationships with his children. Ed is at the center of it all, teaching Stede at every turn exactly how wonderful life can be—and the startling speed with which fear and hesitation could snatch away his newfound love.

    Eventually, the only thing that matters for them both is learning enough about love to stop it from slipping through their fingers.

    Summary

    When Ed and Stede take the act of grace, they're offered two choices: serve their ten year sentence in the navy, or marry a respectable landowner and become gentlemen farmers. Featuring: a marriage fuckery, homesteading, and two middle aged men trying to figure out how to have feelings while surrounded by all their wacky friends.

    Diverges from canon immediately after the scene in 1x09 wherein Stede realizes he's legally dead. That's right, 1x10 doesn't exist here.

    Summary

    Ed, Izzy, Fang, and Ivan make up the London-based rock band Kraken, which rocketed to fame in the 1990s. When ballad singer Stede Bonnet reaches out about a collaboration, Izzy has to work with Bonnet's songwriter, an overeager composer named Lucius, to write something that aging rockstar Ed and new-on-the-scene Stede can perform together.

    What's worse is that Lucius is utterly obsessed with a mysterious songwriter called Basilica, a faceless, genderless musician—and he has no idea that Izzy and Basilica are the same person.

    Except, pirates aren't above cheating to win.

    Right?
