    Summary

    ”I thrive in conversation, mind you, but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy moments of its absence.” He huffed.

     

    ”Well I hope you don’t get too comfortable with it,” Ed replied, “because the grill isn’t going to be quiet, even on a Monday.”

     

    Stede’s smile brightened.

     

    ”Well, I wouldn’t expect quiet in a place like Blackbeard’s,” he laughed, “but perhaps the noise is better in the gift shop?”

     

    ”Oh no,” Edward shook his head, “there’s this bloke who likes gifts a little too much to stay quiet.”

    Stede’s love throughout the series, and there after, expressed through private letters and small scenes

    Summary

    Once upon a time, Eevla decided to write a quick, explicit post-S1 reunion fic. Things Did Not Go As Planned...

    "You're still wearing my cravat." Stede pulled back to look again at Edward's impossibly handsome face, into his glittering brown eyes as he huffed out almost involuntarily,

    "Never took it off."

    Summary

    In the early morning light of the munitions storage cabin, Ed takes one last lingering look at the gunpowder and cannonballs before closing the door and stepping back out on deck.
     
    What he really wants is to shoot off one, just one, cannon, just for the noise and the smell and the hell of it, but they’re running low. Plus it’s kind of hard to stop at just one.

    or

    Edward gets to have exactly the kind of day he's been asking for.

    Summary

    Life as a pirate was always hard, everyone was out to kill you or rob you or maim you or just generally fuck you over. Especially other pirates. But before, before Stede Fucking Bonnet, life with Blackbeard was also thrilling. It was the perfect partnership. Blackbeard had the most devout and capable righthand man in all of piracy, and Izzy had... well. He had Blackbeard. He was the only man who had ever stood up for little Izzy Hands and taken care of him and made him feel safe. He accepted Izzy with all his particularities that everyone else had always mocked. Blackbeard would never kill him or rob him or maim him or just generally fuck him over. Until he did. Bonnet's return and the captains' reconciliation doesn't instantly fix the wounds. The Kraken is still there, waiting underneath the surface. Izzy is alone. It was, perhaps, the greatest loss the man had ever suffered.

    Maybe Stede's kindness can help Izzy heal and find his way back to Blackbeard.

    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

    Stede Bonnet is happy, or so he thinks, as happy as he's ever been in his life now that he's established a whole new life after the catastrophic divorce. But at night, when he's alone, he feels the crushing weight of the loneliness that comes from a life unshared with a partner who might actually understand him and love him just the way he is. Stede had no hope of that ever changing, so he sticks to the life he's trying to maintain-- being a good teacher and a good dad to his children.

    When he finally meets a beloved student's adoptive father for the first time, well, that changes things in a drastic way neither man expect. Both of their lives are about to be turned upside down in a way they've both been craving for a long time, but aren't quite ready for. Hijinks ensue... but so does love.

    Summary

    "Edward," Izzy nods. Ed notices that the grip on his new cane doesn't tighten. That's good news. It means that the kraken's slimy, suckling hold on the crew is loosening ever so slightly. Izzy still stands ramrod straight though, even if he doesn't need to.

    "Hi, Iz. How's watch?"

    "Nice. Calm. Sea'll be agreeable tonight." Izzy turns back towards his gaze along the horizon. It's almost black out now, but Ed can still see plenty far in front of him. Ed knows that it probably burns Izzy from the inside out when he asks, "How's Bonnet?"

    Ed sighs and leans against the railing. It smells like home, out here, even without a traditional home for thousands of miles. "Restless. Dude's dying to do something fuckin' stupid."

    Izzy hums. "Now you know how I feel."

    "Come on, I wasn't this bad."

    "You're worse. You're like a cat on a hot tin roof, Edward. It landed us here."

     

    aka: stede is getting over a cold and wants to tell the crew a story.

    Summary

    “Honestly?” Izzy finally rasped. He watched Ed, waiting for confirmation that he understood he was about to be quite candid. “My plan for the day was t’ talk some fuckin’ sense into ya,” he said in a resigned exhale.
    He waited for Edward to groan, roll his eyes, complain loudly and just be generally obstinate. But he didn’t; he smiled. It wasn’t a bitter sarcastic smirk either but a grin that seemed genuinely warm, if perhaps slightly bemused.
    Izzy felt himself jerk back in surprise as he scanned Ed’s body language up and down. “The fuck are ya lookin’ at me like that for?” He snapped.
    “I think I finally get you, Iz. It’s fuckin’ nuts.”
    Izzy shook his head, eyes widening in disbelief as he felt a traitorous flush warm his cheeks. “No. I don’t know what the fuck you’re talkin’ about!” He turned and stomped away to lean on the dining table.


    Or: What if Ed realized the pain he was experiencing in ep10 was of a kind with what Izzy had felt about him for so long? What if he spoke the unspoken? What if Izzy never threatened "Edward" and he never became The Kraken? What if the crew of the Revenge helped a pair of idiots out of their toxic patterns and they found happiness? And then Stede arrived

    Summary

    They’d all cheered when Stede had come back, Ed in tow, exhaustion written in every line of their bodies. But they were alive and home and together. Forever.

    But their Mr. Hands is confusing. Well, at least to Stede. Because everyone on the ship gets *it*. Except Ed’s first mate. And Stede is starting to understand the depths that make up Israel Hands, but he is Ed’s first.

    Permission isn’t so much given as relinquished. Willingly, but still. Stede plans to make the most of it.

    Summary

    “Marriage, John! How’s a bloke propose marriage?” he whispered intently into his ear.

    “Are we talkin’ about Stede?”

    “Yeah, man! Help me out here!”

    “Why me? Certainly you’ve been ‘round as much as I have, more even!”

    “Sure, but, Stede’s different, man, you know that!” Ed risked a glance over his shoulder to see if Stede was listening in. He remained fixated on his conversation with Fang, fortunately. “I can’t just…ask him!”

    “I think I take your meaning, Cap’n,” Feeney took a sip of his mead with an impish gleam in his eyes. “You want the askin’ t’ be special.”

    “Exactly!” He relented, “So can you help me out?”

    “Hmm, maybe,” the big man looked thoughtful. “Back when I worked in me mother’s shop, I’d overhear the ladies chatterin’ all the time. So I know what they liked their men folk t’ do. Not sure if that will help you with Stede, though.”

    Ed was already at the edge of his seat, eager for any morsel of information on how to do this right. “Tell me,” he begged.

    Or, Ed is desperately ready to ask Stede for his hand in matelotage, but he wants everything to be perfect.

    Summary

    Stede and Edward have somewhat retired from their pirate life and settled down after being married on the seas for several years. But for the past year, the two husbands have brought a child into their home. A little girl who goes by the name of Ruby Ann, who has already gone through so much at the age of only four years old. Though it may not be easy at times for everyone, including Ruby herself, Stede and Ed could not be happier to have her as a part of their little family.

    Along with the former crew mates living on their land (except for Izzy), there are going to be a lot of adventures for Little Miss Ruby coming her way!

    Summary

    When Stede Bonnet was carefully carved out of bits of the finest enchanted Brazilian cherry wood, he allowed Geppetto to put on a show with him, dress him up and parade him about a bit, dangling from bits of string and lace, tottering about the world in a perverse imitation of a real boy. And when that stupid fucking cricket that lived in the walls of his Barbados estate whispered to him and told him to behave, to smile through his pathetic (pathetic) puppet life, what did Stede Bonnet do? Why, he took a hammer and smashed the fuck out of that cricket. Cricket annihilated. Bonnet out.

    The story hasn’t ended though. It’s time for him to be swallowed by that great sea-beast, only to be spit out into a new life with the only person who can break the spell. The first problem now is that the only one who can allow him to feel a real human heartbeat thudding in his no-longer wooden chest is more likely to stop that beating forever. The second problem is that for the first time in his life, he knows exactly what he is.

    Or: Stede must defeat the Kraken. Ed must destroy the puppet. Only they can save each other. Only the one can make the other human again.

    Summary

    "You can't just leave every time there's a problem."
    "And you can't hurt people every time you feel hurt. "
    Both regretted the words as soon as they'd said them. The words stung, but the most hurtful thing about them was that they were unequivocally true, and neither one could refute that.
    or: Picking up from the end of season 1, Ed and Stede reunite. Both need to make amends- and learn how to love each other again.
