    Summary

    After the disastrous events of the party aboard the French vessel, Ed has a lot of time to brood, and his thoughts turn bleak.

    He needs a distraction, and who better to do the distracting than the bright, strange, oddly delectable Stede Bonnet?

    Little does Ed know, Stede can give just as good as he gets.

    Summary

    “Everyone’s got a tribe. Like finding like. Where do you think you fit?”

    Stede’s never felt like he fits anywhere. Like a lighthouse, obstructive and crude, stuck on a cold, craggy shoreline, Stede is perpetually catching sight of others skirting around him in his light, before looking away again. 

    “Honestly, I’m just– just Stede.”

    Boring. Divorcee. A late-bloomer and metaphorical virgin to the nuances of the modern gay man. 

    Ed hums, stretches his legs again. The leather of his pants crinkles. “I like that.”

    Summary

    “What the hell’s happened to you?” Stede demands. It’s his voice, in his body, and he almost seems living, and it’s— It has to be the last thing Ed ever sees. He has to die with him burned on the insides of his eyelids.

    Stede’s eyes are tracking over him, rising up to meet his eyes, locking with him. It feels so real. He can’t help the hysterical laugh that comes up and out of him, impossibly grateful for this last delusion.

    Without hesitating, he lurches forward, grabbing Stede and yanking him into his arms. Stede makes a confused noise of protest, briefly, but it fades instantly and his arms come up, too, wrapping around Ed without hesitation. He doesn’t smell the same; instead, he’s all salt and sweat and sun, baked into his skin. Ed buries his face in his hair, fingers clawing at the impossibly real feel of him, the hallucination made solid in his arms.

    “Thank fuck,” Ed says into his hair, voice breaking. “I didn’t want to die without seeing you one last time.”

    Summary

    “You made your choice,” Edward insists. “You don’t get to unmake it, Stede. What’s done is done, don’t you know?”

    “Ah. I learned that lesson rather recently, yes,” Stede says, very softly.

    The expression on his face isn’t fair, Ed thinks. It hurts to look at, all soft and yearning and difficult to resist. The kind of look that makes him angry because of how it also makes him weak. Ed clears his throat, twitches again. Locks his knees tight and clamps his jaw shut, glaring at Stede. The ship keeps sinking beneath them.

    “What I also learned,” Stede murmurs, shifting his weight forward. His empty hand comes up, palm open and reaching. “Is that I can be brave. I can be stubborn. I can fight for the life that I want so very, very badly, Edward Teach.”

    Ed’s mouth dries. “Y-yeah? And what’s that?”

    Stede smiles crookedly. “You.”
