    Summary

    After an ill-fated visit to a very strange island, Edward Teach and Stede Bonnet wake up in each others' bodies.

    ---

    Just a silly lil bodyswap fic because every fandom needs one. This takes place somewhere around their co-captaincy, before the British and before the Act of Grace. Ed knows he has feelings for Stede, but Stede is still oblivious.

    This is the world of OFMD, but with some magical elements. But don't worry, I'm making the magic something etheral and elemental, so there will be no problematic misuse of actual religions and their beliefs.

    I suppose bodyswaps by their nature have some dubcon, so a warning for that I guess? This one'll get a little bit smuttier than my other stories, but nothing too extreme.

    Summary

    Unceremoniously Ed grabbed him by a shirt and for a short moment, Stede thought, believed even, that this madman was going to kiss him. Instead, he has undone two top buttons of his shirt.
    ‘Much better. You already look less uptight,’ Ed smiled, patting him on the arm.
    ‘Oh… thank you,’ Stede felt like he was nineteen again, the last time he was in a place like this, in a different life almost. ‘Well… I think that this,’ he took his handkerchief and placed it in that ridiculous leather jacket, ‘should complement a lovely bartender who made me an amazing drink today and… is quite lovely.’
    ‘Oh,’ Ed touched the material, he almost looked shy. ‘But I don’t work here.’
    *
    Stede isn’t happy with how his life went so far. At some point he decides to change things in his life. Still, he’s unhappily married, but he and Mary have a deal to get a divorce when the time comes.
    Edward is three times national champion in mixology, yet people come to him and ask for most basic drinks. He would much prefer to make drinks with smoke.
    So when by a miracle they run into each other they instantly fall for each other and find a muse in one another.
    Or Coffee Shop AU but there's no coffee only vodka.

    Summary

    Salvage diver Ed Teach is no stranger to the story of Blackbeard and the Queen Anne's Revenge- after all, the famous pirate is a distant ancestor. But then Professor Stede Bonnet, maritime archaeologist and many-times-great-grandson of the original, waltzes through the door of his shop and requests his services in finding the wreck. What are the odds?

    Ed's had enough of the cutthroat world of salvage diving, and he's this close to leaving it all behind. But Bonnet's quest sparks an interest he hasn't felt in years, and he agrees to help the oddly charming man. Nothing to do with the fact that the Queen Anne might just be the last treasure trove Ed needs to escape his life. Definitely nothing to do with the way Bonnet's cheerful enthusiasm makes his heart skip a beat.

    Together they'll hunt for the wreck... and then they'll reckon with what comes next.

    Summary

    Islington, 1989. Stede Bonnet’s knowledge of London’s gay scene is lacking in everything but rose-tinted glasses, as he leaves his marriage to run a halfway-house for ‘waifs and strays’ in the city centre.

    Izzy Hands, the best mate of Bonnet’s new paramour, has been without those glasses for years.

    OR: an 80’s AU from two different sides of the coin. Also, Ed runs a Greasy Spoon café, and Lucius has a great deal of shit to outrun.

    Edward Teach has spent years trying to escape his own past but has unfortunately needed to start over in a new town more than once. It’s a lonely life, but at the end of the day, it’s one he thinks he deserves – because people like him don’t deserve a life of happiness and something more.

    Summary

    It was the Roaring Twenties and Stede Bonnet was a wealthy land owner from New Zealand. He was as rich as could be and lived a comfortable life. But comfortable does not mean happy.

    Stuck in a loveless marriage with the need to get away, Stede decided to move to the land of the free to get into the bootlegging business and opened a Speakeasy. It was a rocky start, but he eventually got the hang of it and it was going great. That is until the notorious Mafia boss, Blackbeard, learned about him and gained an interest in who he was.

    At first the interest came from the story of a fancy man selling illegal alcohol, but then it grew after news came out that the same fancy man had some blood on his hands.

    Then it became something more when it turned out the man was actually horrible at his job.

    Summary

    Ed's really fired up post-raid, Stede is holding on for dear life.

    _

    This takes place in some kind of post-cannon/alt-cannon liminal headspace, where Ed and Stede are in a really trusting and committed romantic/physical relationship. We can even pretend they've talked about boundaries and safewords. It's our liminal headspace! But if you are sensitive to anything at all non-con leaning, under-discussed, etc. please see the end-notes or just skip this one :)

    Summary

    Five years after her father is killed first by a jungle cat, then by a carriage, and then by a falling piano, Alma Bonnet decides that his absence in her life is, quite frankly, complete horse shit. Obviously the only way to find him is to run away and become a pirate. Because that makes complete and total sense.

    Somehow, it doesn't end with her dead.

    Summary

    “You don’t have to use it,” Stede says, suddenly hoarse. His heart’s beating fast all of a sudden and he’s not sure why, exactly.

    It’s something to do with the way Izzy’s looking at him – remarkably similar to the face he’d made when they’d first met, that self-assured slow once-over that makes his skin crawl in a way that’s not entirely unpleasant.

    Summary

    As he walks down the stairs, he feels his mood continuing to rise – until he comes face to face with Doug, Mary’s Doug, at the bottom.

    The man doesn’t look like a threat at all, but there’s a very guarded and concerned look on his face. Which is totally fair, Stede’s been nothing but snippy about him, and of course there was that episode the night before where he held a knife to the man’s throat. A rather dull cheese knife, but still. If someone did that to him and then went off to share a bed with Ed, he’d be deeply … oh, god, is he the Calico Jack of this situation?

    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

    Stede looked over and saw an older man speaking to Izzy, but something was terribly wrong. Stede had never seen Izzy be so still, like a startled deer frozen in the hopes you wouldn't see them.

    At a party, Izzy runs into a man from his past. This is not a good thing.

    Summary

    “I can’t wait to marry you, darling,” Stede said.

    “Stede!”

    “You’re going to be so beautiful in the ceremony.” 

    He was babbling now, but he knew Ed liked that. And it filled Stede with such delicious warmth to feel his lover bobbing above him. He was powerfully compelled to tell Ed how incredible he was.

    Summary

    This fic is the slowest of slow burns. It was intentionally written to build gradually as a cohesive narrative that expands over time because you can't get a good emotional release without FOREPLAY.

    What if Ed didn't go full 'Evil-Ed' post Stede? How would Izzy react to an Ed that still wasn't quite right even though Bonnet was gone?

    What would it be like if they thought Stede Bonnet was fucking dead, but then he wasn't?

    Themes include: grief, loss, guilt, forgiveness, hurting people you love, healing, backsliding, the effects of childhood trauma, consent, power dynamics.

    There will be no themes of sexual assault/violence in excess of the show.

    I'm not over tagging this jawn because I don't want to spoil the whole story ahead of time. Where's the fun if you know half of what you can expect from the tags alone. Don't you just want to let a story unfold, friend?

    Fuck counter: 237 fucks (I mean the word. They haven't fucked 237 times. That would be ludicrous)
