    Summary

    What if, instead of delivering Captain Flint to a plantation in Savannah, Long John Silver freed the slaves on the plantation and delivered one particular man to Flint?

    What if Nassau was given one last chance to find its place in the world with an English Lord for a governor?

    What if freedom could be won without a war?

    Summary

    Sometimes he is still afraid he will wake up and all of this will be gone.

    But it has been almost a decade. Ten years of reunions and births and love that John still, at times, struggles to accept is real. And watching James abandon any sort of dignity to play with children strikes such a cognitive dissonance in his mind that for a moment he feels as if he is watching the scene from outside it, rather than in the room. It feels too warm, too affectionate, to be something he’s been allowed to be a part of.

    Summary

    “What are you afraid of?” Flint asks.

    “Right now, I am afraid that regardless of your pretty speech, you are going to keep heaving that fucking rock up that fucking mountain with no regard for what you crush underneath it.” His stare is as intent and intimate as it has ever been. “Including yourself.”

    Flint tells one more story.

    Summary

    "The bay isn’t visible from the rebel encampment, but he faces it as surely as a compass points north. Up on the fort, Flint stands with his back straight and his shoulders set, his hands folded neatly behind him. He stands there as though, if he simply waits long enough, if he hopes hard enough, the sea will return John Silver to him."

    Madi and Flint have a discussion about grief after losing John Silver. Set directly after 4x01.

    Summary

    he will make peace with the loss of what silver took from him. he will content himself with one half—a life with thomas—and forgive himself for not fighting for the whole / whatever silver’s telling himself they’re doing here, it isn’t training for a battle / they don’t talk about the past. sometimes they talk about the future. “i’m in between dreams right now,” silver says lightly, nodding his head back toward the bar.

    Summary

    Life is a struggle (they all know), but never in a thousand years they would have thought success would be so hard working.

    Silver is King, but his tethers are fragile, he doesn't know where he belongs. Flint is complete, at last, but his mind is a treacherous place ready to fold him in new challenging ways. Thomas tries to find himself among the rubble of his previous life (lives?), but it is slow and not always linear.

    And Nassau is a barrel of gunpowder ready to explode.

    Summary

    Imagine if James and the Hamiltons got their chance, ever so briefly, to follow their passions, their plans. There is no argument, no politics, no ferrying people away in the dead of night. Instead, as they sail towards hope, the pardons still in hand, the Navy brutally take Thomas' life under bright daylight, in the middle of a vast ocean, and dump his body overboard.

    Thomas is dead.

    They were so close, they were on their way to Nassau, young and naïve and full of hope and determination, and then England said no, and ripped Thomas straight from James' hands.

    But James doesn't do no. He is determined, he will undo this, he will dive down into the Underworld itself if he must to get Thomas back. Except nothing is ever as easy as that, and James finds himself faced with choices beyond anything he could have ever imagined possible. For he is not the first to try convincing the Guardian of the Dead to release a lover, and he won't be the last. And the harder he tries, the more entangled he finds himself in the deep...

    Summary

    When Maria says that she wants to be married before her god, Rebekah accepts James as their only suitable officiant.

    “Yes,” he says, when asked. “Of course. But wouldn’t you want Thomas to do it?”

    Rebekah frowns and shakes her head. “No. Thomas will give me away.”

    This, she understands, is a Christian tradition: fathers own their daughters until such a time as the daughter are married to a man. Rebekah has no father left on this Earth, but Thomas is her family in a way no other man will ever be.

    So she claims Thomas as hers, and Maria claims John. This does not bother Rebekah, though she claims John in other ways.

    “Hey,” John says, affronted. “I’m a captain. I was a captain more recently than him. Not that I want to officiate, by any means.”

    “No, of course not,” Rebekah says. “You’re going to recite the sheva b'rachot.”

    This story marks the end of the Tether Series.

    The deepest thanks to eufry for the sensitivity read. As always, I am a white, abled-bodied, Christian person writing a story that includes non-white, disabled, and/or Jewish characters. If I have fucked up in any way, please let me know.
