    Summary

    He should pull away. He should laugh politely, and tell Ed kindly - but firmly - that such contact was not appropriate in cultured society.

    But they were not in cultured society. They were on a boat in the middle of the ocean, intending to rob some merchants.

    Stede let Ed take his hands.

    ---

    or, the one where Stede learns that, just like the social elite back home, pirates have a lot of strange traditions.

    (alternatively, the one where Stede gets a piercing)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Stede says captain as the one would say father. But a father – Edward learnt this the hard way – beats his wife and his child until their faces become a mess. A captain – Edward also learnt this the hard way – often treats his subordinates in kind.

    Perhaps, Edward just has never met good ones.

    Summary

    “I’m just sneaking a break from the festivities, as it were.” Crowley twists his hand in a gesture meant to sum up the circumstances which led him here. “I haven’t taken up residency in the back of a bookshop in the middle of paradise.”
    “Ah, well, we clearly disagree over what, precisely, paradise might mean.” Aziraphale's eyes are sharp, and through that initial mask of annoyance, a small smile is curling.

     

    Crowley came to Lower Tadfield, the UKs version of San Junipero, to have a good time, try out the software, step out of his old and failing body into the magic of a virtual world with no consequences. At least that's what he had planned, until one night he stumbles into a bookshop and meets a buttoned up, blue eyed wonder with pale curls and a perfect smile.

    Summary

    These days, he has no fucking clue what to call himself, or what to do with himself, or where he and Stede stand. (He and Stede are fucking on the regular but other than that, he has no fucking clue.)

    But he finds rhythms in everything. So he focuses on them. Counts them. Better than going mad, he supposes.


    Or, the post-reunion days aren't that easy for Ed. (Also he's not so sure if he's going by Ed, anymore.)
