    Summary

    Once upon a time, Izzy Hands had a steamy weekend with a pirate called Francis Spriggs. A few years later, he boards the Revenge and meets Spriggs' younger brother, Lucius.

    -0-

    “I love my brother,” Spriggs says, “but he's a dick and I don't want people being scared of me. So if you keep your mouth shut about it, I’ll keep my mouth shut about you, because I could do a rather detailed sketch of your dick just from his description.”

    Izzy bites on the inside of his mouth. Again, he has the urge to carve Francis’ tongue out—it would stop him from gossiping so fucking much.

    Summary

    So now Izzy is manacled about his wrists and ankles, stripped of his sword and his gun and the backup dagger he keeps in his boot, a long-but-thankfully-shallow gash in his side bleeding sluggishly, with the one person he never wanted to share a cell with.

    And Bonnet is fucking crying.

    ---

    A stint in jail at the mercy of another Badminton leads to Izzy having some stark revelations about Stede, Edward, and himself.

    Written for the OFMD kink meme.

    Summary

    Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing
    Only a signal shown and a distant voice in the darkness;
    So on the ocean of life we pass and speak one another,
    Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence. - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow; Tales of a Wayside Inn, part 3, section 4.

    Sometimes it's easier to trust strangers with the parts of yourself you've never been able to give to anyone. Sometimes the same strangers keep turning up in your life. It's terribly inconvenient, isn't it, when these two facts get tangled together.
