    Summary

    Lieutenant James McGraw and Captain Flint were, indeed, two different persons, by the will of destiny confined in one body. But for all the distinction, both of them had something in common. Or didn't have at all. James Flint didn't have a Soulmate.

    Summary

    Ten years ago it had been his sister’s chance at a new beginning. Now, 4 am approached and John Silver arrived in New York City with everything he owned in two duffle bags and an overwhelmed backpack, in hopes of maybe achieving the same. Or at the very least, to sort out what the fuck he was supposed to do with his life from this point forward. Not that he believed New York held the answer. No city held any real answers, when it came to a person’s path, that much he was certain of. But there was nothing left in California, no reason to stay. He had woken up one morning and felt the malcontent and melancholy in his very bone marrow, and knew something had to change.
    ___

    (aka. John moves to New York and ends up with an accidental pair of non creepy sugar daddies, ya know, the millennial dream)

    Summary

    The idea of Soulmates, while often causing more conflict than it resolves, had generally been accepted as a reason for otherwise reasonable people to do extraordinarily stupid things.

    Why else would John Silver have gotten on a merchant vessel destined to head right through pirate territory?

    (A series rewrite which could be seen as a sequel to 'A Rescue (from Three Perspectives)' but with soulmates, and pretty much every fandom headcanon that I ever took a liking to.)

    Summary

    When faced with the choice of imprisoning Lord Thomas Hamilton; a peer with a voice in Whitehall and the respect of his fellow men, or Lieutenant James McGraw; an Irish upstart disliked by most of his subordinates, Alfred Hamilton chooses the easier one to write off as mad.

    Three years later, after much scheming, Lord Thomas Hamilton, 5th Earl of Ashbourne and Lord Proprietor of New Providence Island, attempts to right the wrongs that his father and England have wrought upon the world.

    It would be a lie to say that it is easy.

    Summary

    Billy is a convict serving a 10-year banishment sentence under an assumed name. Abigail arrives on the arm of a well-intentioned, if deeply naive, minister on a mission to spread the Reformation to the Crown's most derelict residents.

    They shared a connection once years before that has followed them all the way to Camp Jackson, just far enough to make a mess. Billy wants nothing more than to serve his sentence before disappearing as a free man, but he can only ignore the plight of the oppressed for so long, nor can he repress the feelings that stir when he sees Abigail again. Abigail wants to help her idealistic husband and fulfill the role of the reverend's wife, but the gritty realities of slavery and imprisonment of indigenous peoples challenge their mutual understandings of morality. In the midst of every new challenge the frontier presents, Abigail comes to realize that what she feels for her husband is not what she feels for Billy.

    There may be no better place to overturn conventions than the border where society ends and real freedom begins.

    Summary

    For as long as he'd remembered, he's had a song in his mind and words scrawled over his heart, but no one in Nassau says his words, and the song in his mind grows louder when they're at sea.

    There's always been tales of pirates being lured to their deaths, by sirens and mermaids and creatures of the deep. They’ve been told since he’d been brought onto the Walrus, and he’s heard them all the same, they all end in the same result. They’re told alongside stories of men and women who fall in love because of words that are tattooed onto their skin at birth.

    To Billy, all tales come with a grain of truth.

    Summary

    When James was stood in front of him, Thomas swayed a little toward him out of habit. He nearly lost his footing and James’s hands, covered in blood, fluttered nervously toward him before he clenched his hands. “Thomas…?” James asked in such a quiet and broken voice that Thomas couldn’t suppress the soft noise that clawed its way out of his throat.
    “James,” Thomas said back and they just took each other in.

    Summary

    «Chi sono quelli?»
    Tre uomini parlottavano piano in mezzo al mercato, guardandosi intorno con occhi furtivi.
    «Due della ciurma di Flint e il signor Gates, il quartiermastro» la voce di Idelle si era assottigliata in un sussurro complice.
    «Quale, quello basso?» l’altra annuiva e Madlene guardava con più attenzione. I racconti sul grande pirata, il capitano Flint, erano spaventosi e sublimi. I mercantili assaltati, gli uomini trucidati a sangue freddo, la ferocia e l’astuzia. E ora lei era lì, a un passo dalla sua ciurma, dal quartiermastro. Rimase a fissare la figura di quell’uomo: pelato, un tatuaggio dietro la testa, ma non basso come le era sembrato, solo con le spalle così larghe che l’altezza non pareva sufficiente, e un ventre tondo e grosso sotto la camicia, aperta su un collo tozzo e taurino che ben rispecchiava le proporzioni intere della figura. Madlene aveva fatto appena in tempo a incrociare la vista di quel volto serio, contratto, che già se ne andava portandosi via gli altri due. Era bastato per farle correre un brivido nella schiena.

    Summary

    Silver had thought Madi was joking when she told him she’d filled out a Bake Off application on his behalf. He’d laughed into the phone, and then simply asked her how her mother was doing.

    That had been the end of it, Silver had thought, until he’d gotten a phone call from some producer congratulating him for being accepted onto the Great British Bake Off.

    Summary

    John Silver has been managing James Flint in underground street boxing matches for almost a year now, and they're finally started to making some cash and maybe a little name for themselves. Unfortunately, notoriety draws unsavory people, and not every fight is a good one, even when you win.

    Summary

    Tales of the man who walked on fog, a lantern in one hand and a bloody sword in the other, a man called Flint who left death in his wake, were old. They had been passed down by mouth from generation to generation. The towns from Bude to Padstow to Penzance were filled with people having claimed to see the apparition. But few truly had.

    On a foggy morning in September, Miranda became one of those few.

    Summary

    Pulling him from a tangle of rigging and sails was no easy task, but James persevered and soon freed the man.

    Two things were immediately apparent as James looked down upon his face; one, he was the most beautiful man that James had ever laid eyes on; and two, he wasn’t breathing.
