    Summary

    Across the street from his shop, perched on the low half wall in front of a nondescript high rise of offices, there is a man playing acoustic guitar. Well, playing is a word for it anyway; it sounds as if the man has just picked up the instrument for the first time today. It’s all clumsy chord changes and out of tune twanging, but that on its own would probably be at least tolerable. Flint’s street is usually quiet, but he’s no stranger to buskers; the more populated streets are full of them when the weather is nice.

    No, the thing that really ties the scene together is the bird.

    Summary

    James McGraw is almost done with his university career, and the light at the end of the tunnel has never looked sweeter. He is completely overwhelmed with balancing his leadership position on his school's Queer Student Union, working on his and his boyfriend Thomas' proposal to overhaul the lacking university disability policy, and staying afloat in his competitive political science major. In the face of an outrageous action by the notorious football team, he must decide what he cares about the most: his academic career or his own moral compass.

    Title is from the song "Sinners" by Lauren Aquilina

    Summary

    “I chose my position; have you ever had a choice in yours?”

    Flint and Silver are a rare pair: one is a male omega, single by circumstance and holding a seat of influence. The other is an alpha who has rejected his privilege, thriving among other sex workers, considered the least of society. When Flint hires Silver to satisfy his heat, neither of them expect to bond. Together, they must take their fates into their own hands.

    Summary

    Thomas had always viewed a kiss as an admission—or an affirmation, perhaps— that two hearts were joined in one narrative. And for as long as he could recall, the narrative had been a forgone conclusion. He’d been cast as an Icarus—a flaxen fool of a boy, meddling with matters best left alone, and daring to dream of life outside the bounds of nature, or at least as it was defined by his peers.

    … except he wasn’t falling. Wasn’t burning. Wasn’t drowning. The myths warned of the sun and the sea, but they’d failed to account for what lay in between: the air itself, silent and unassuming as it gathered strength from both above and below with equal abandon.

    a.k.a.:
    John Silver [delirious brain]: What if Flint summoned the storm?
    Thomas Hamilton [galaxy brain]: What if James *is* the storm?

    Summary

    In which the rumors of Miranda's witchcraft are not, exactly, untrue.

    -

    "The change is small at first, creeping along her so slowly she does not initially notice. Darker earth here, a clump of grass there. Moss does not grow in the Bahamas, but it grows in Miranda's garden: a deep green that reminds her of childhood summers spent in the north of England, sprawling refreshment beyond the reach of smokeblack London.

    What follows is shoots of kale, small heads of lettuce, and strawberries, bitter and white—and more than four thousand miles from where they should be."

    -

    Or: In the early days of her time on the island, Miranda finds herself with abilities she can't entirely explain by natural causes. As represented by an exploration of grief and healing.

    Summary

    Summary

    I have been cursed, she says to her mother one summer morning as they weed the herb garden together. It is hot even before nine o’clock, and the sun is already beating down on her straw hat.

    Her mother laughs. “You are always so melodramatic, Miranda.”

    “No, I mean it, Mother. I cannot help but see the path ahead, and I cannot stop myself from telling people about it.”

    Mrs. Barlow stops smiling. “My love, you have always been too perceptive for your own good,” she says softly. “You must learn to keep these insights to yourself, or I fear that your path will never run smooth.”

    “But how? How do I do that?”

    Her mother is no longer listening, her head inclined toward the front of the house and an intent expression upon her face. Miranda gives it a moment, and then they can both hear it now, the sound of a horse-drawn carriage making its way up the drive.

    “Helena,” Miranda says, for everyone else who should be at home is already at home.

    Summary

    Panic began to rise through him, choking him, his breath coming in short, gasping pants. His hands clutched tightly at the cracked porcelain basin, knuckles white with the force, and he forced himself to take slow, deep breaths. They had no reason to come and find him, not for a few days at least, not until the body surfaced, and by then, he’d have his bags and would be halfway across the country with a share of five million dollars, enough to hide from anyone who might want him dead.

     

    or

    John Silver, new on the New York gang scene, struggles to his head above the water as his demons try their best to drown him. Of course, it would help if he hadn't allied himself with the most dangerous and ruthless man of all, James Flint, leader of the infamous Black Sails.

    With the FBI closing in and the gangs of New York out for blood, John knows that his only shot at surviving the web of trouble he's found himself tangled in rests with the most dangerous of men.

    Summary

    Emily is a single mother to adorable one-year-old Lucia, scraping by to make ends meet but aided by a whole bunch of kindhearted people who also excel in the areas of scowling and chugging rum. Like her neighbor James whose frown could make anyone scramble to get away but who also lets Lucia drool all over him and eat his ginger hair whilst he regales her with tales of the seas. Or her brother who will also let his niece snack on his hair while making sure no one dares to cross her mother. (Cross her ~again~, the guy who did disappeared before he could wring his neck. Confidential tips appreciated.)
    And then there’s the guy that she knew was trouble when he walked in.

    Or in short: scowling, hardass pirates who go soft af for the baby (and her mother)

    Summary

    She wants something to slash, burn, and destroy, but, looking down at her soft hands and lady's skirts, she does not know how to do it. The empire may have fashioned James into a weapon for its wars, but it has done something more insidious to her. It has sanded away whatever sharp edges that may have been her birthright until she is no more a threat to it than the ocean smoothed pebble may be to the giant.

    Or, a Miranda Barlow lives AU where Peter puts the clock in a different room, Captain Flint is abducted, and Miranda joins the crew.
