    Summary

    You, Synovus, are a respectably terrifying supervillain. Your main rivals, a pair of superheroes named Legionnaire and Athena, are actually respectable as heroes. You hate having to stoop to kidnapping their child - but you hate more what the kid's behavior implies.
    Inspired by a prompt from writing-prompt-s on tumblr, and originally posted there!

    Summary

    “Darling…” Stede whispers, warm breath in Ed’s hair.

    Ed tries to memorize the sound of Stede’s voice as the word passes his lips. He closes his eyes, face now nestling against his co-captain’s bare torso. It's all too much. The feeling of Stede’s hands idly combing through his hair, lips leaving casual kisses at the top of his head, their half-dressed bodies balmy and entangled comfortably. Lovely words echoing softly in his ears. Stede couldn’t possibly understand how overwhelmed Ed feels. He craves Stede’s softness. He wants to bury himself deeper somehow, but it isn’t physically possible. Ed curses the limits of the human body.

    Summary

    "Hey." Ed reaches across because it's the only thing that feels right. He grasps Stede's wrist and smoothes the pad of his thumb across his knuckles. Stede stops fiddling with his ring and looks up at him, wide-eyed. "This isn't Captain shit. This is God shit. Are you God?"

    The room is blank with silence.

    Gently, Ed repeats, "Are you God, Stede?"

    Stede's voice is thin and high when he answers, "I'm not God."

    "And is God here, in this room?"

    Comically, Stede looks around like he might find God perched on the edge of his desk, or pulling books from his shelves to examine the spines.

    "He's not," Stede concedes.

    "That's right, mate. Stupid bugger doesn't associate himself with pirates."

     

    Or: The Revenge has been becalmed for six days. Ed has bigger things to worry about, like sharks and being in love.

    Summary

    “Happy anniversary,” Ed tells him. He’s got a smile, but he still seems nervous, and Stede absolutely cannot have that.

    He surges up into him, tugging him down into a ferocious kiss, unable to stop himself from automatically parting his lips and licking into him. Ed grins, his smile going from anxious to delighted; his hands grip Stede’s hips, draw him in. He’s eager in return, meets his kiss with enthusiasm, gives as good as he gets in tilting his head and meeting him beat for beat.

    They part, Stede peeling himself away so he can ask, desperately, “What— How long— S— What?”

    “We met two years ago today,” Ed tells him.

    “If you’d call that meeting,” Oluwande comments.

    “What else would you call it, then?” the Swede asks.

    “A living nightmare,” Izzy grumbles.

    “A naval attack,” Ivan answers, at the same time Roach replies, “A meet-cute.”

    “Disgusting?” Jim suggests.

    “Best day of my life,” Ed adds on top of it all, “Or one of ‘em, anyway.”
