    Summary

    Text me: 450-318-9924

     

     

    “Oh, for the love of all that is green and good,” she mutters. A quick hand and a flick of the wrist is all it will take to toss the cup into the trash as she makes her way back to her desk. Really – that’s all she’d need.

    Reflex, is what she’ll call it later – the thing that makes her tuck the cup closer to her chest, just under her arm, protecting it from herself.

    Well, she thinks. It couldn’t hurt to think on it.

    Summary

    For a year now, Stede Bonnet has pursued the man he loves across the sea. Desperate for a chance to put things right, Stede will stop at nothing to catch up with Ed and the Revenge. But with his crew losing faith and time marching on, Stede is starting to suspect he needs a miracle.

    For a year now, Edward Teach has been a prisoner aboard the Revenge, held captive by his own reputation. When the chance of escape presents itself, Ed sets his sights on the one place in the world where he might still be welcome.

    But who will Stede encounter on Ocracoke Island: the man he loves, or a monster?

    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

    “I think I’ve fucked up,” Stede confesses.

    “Yeah,” Lucius tells him, “but don’t take it too hard. I might’ve fucked up, too, if somebody dragged me out of bed to tell me I’d ruined their family, and my own, and destroyed the love of my life’s entire legacy, and then, like— blew their own whole fucking head off. Like, that— I get that, Cap’n. That makes sense.”

    Stede nods, keeping his eyes forward. After a beat, he can’t maintain the calm, and he needs the human connection, turning back to look at Lucius. He actually spills over, then, eyes burning.

    “Oh, you don’t have to do that,” Lucius comments, but Stede is already carefully standing up so he can bend and hug Lucius without capsizing their vessel.

     
    or: stede saves his crew, draws a duel, and reunites with the love of his life, though he's certain he's going to die every step of the way.

    Summary

    Stede stands on the warm sand at the beach, stripped of his luxurious coat and impractical shoes, his hair pushed off his face from where he'd slicked it back while using seawater to clean away the pigs blood. He breathes deeply and takes a moment to grieve the life he's about to leave behind for good.

    Just a moment, and a moment only.

    He closes his eyes against the warmth of the setting sun, and inhales the salty spray of water as a wave crashes on the shore; the ocean advancing and receding, beckoning him forward.

    Calling him home.
