    Summary

    Love sticks; sweat drips

    Break the lock if it don't fit

    A kick in the teeth is good for some

    A kiss with a fist is better than none

    Ed knows a fuckery when he hears about one. No death that ridiculous could have been a coincidence.

    He leaves Stede a trail of breadcrumbs to get back to The Revenge. When Stede arrives back on board, Ed is surprised to find Stede has a bone to pick with him--and that Ed's got bones of his own to pick with Stede.

    (This is not a fisting fic. No one get your hopes up. Title from here.)

    Summary

    Stede Bonnet had never liked conflict. When he sensed a difficult conversation coming, he would time and time again busy himself with the most random bullshit in order to be distracted from said conflict. Todays bullshit was brewing three pots of tea in six hours. He didn’t know how to communicate to Ed that he actually incredibly disliked his old shipmate and wanted this conversation to be as civil as possible.

    [where Stede decides to communicate by being a brat and Ed won’t tolerate a brat.]

    Summary

    “I could be your wife.”

    The words are so unexpected that Stede doesn’t register them at first, and Ed looks up at him, big brown eyes shining. “If you wanted.”

    Started out as pirate feminization porn, turned into a sprawling epic about gender identity, healthy relationships, trauma resolution and anti-colonialism (and pirate feminization porn, so much pirate porn.)

    Summary

    "Mary, I have to get to Mary."

    He says and Ed feels an unpleasant jolt… Mary. There's that name again. After what he'd heard in the bunk today Ed had finally put together that it was Stede's wife… and really it was silly to be jealous of a woman Stede had literally left…

    "Fuck okay… you lived here in Barbados right? She must not be far." Ed says and frowns, looking around. Thankfully it seemed like no one else had been drawn by the noise.

    "Have to make it right… have to do something right for once in my life. I have to, I have to." Stede keeps babbling… he's in shock, Ed slowly realizes. He's seen shock do funny things to all sorts of people in his long career. He's seen them throw themselves off ships, walk right into a bullet or a blade. He wouldn’t let that happen to Stede.

    Summary

    Stede finds the house. When he comes back to their room at the inn, he won’t rest—won’t let Ed rest—until Ed’s seen it. His eyes are bright in that way that makes Ed’s guts feel scooped out with a spoon. So Ed hurries into his boots and goes with him.

    The once-white paint is stripped by weather and wear, a portion of the roof is caved in, and the spokes of the wraparound porch are all gnawed through by animals.

    Ed gazes up at the broken windows and the birds that have built nests there. At his side, Stede is waiting, rocking back and forth on his heels.

    "It’s perfect," says Ed.

    ***

    Or: Ed and Stede leave the island together, and they don’t look back.
