    Summary

    They walk up the main road, Stede chewing the inside of his lip. He doesn’t see any heads turn to follow them or anyone do a double take like they immediately recognize him or think they’re seeing a ghost, so that’s something, at least. Is it a good something? Stede doesn’t know.

    “Stede,” Ed mutters in his ear, leaning closer as they walk. “Breathe.”

    Stede releases a breath he hadn’t realized he was holding, then turns to smile gratefully at Ed. “Sorry,” he replies, sheepish. “I’m a little nervous.”

    or:

    Stede returns to Barbados with Ed in tow. Stede has trouble communicating, until he doesn't.

    Summary

    “What d’you mean?”

    He does not get an immediate response. Stede, being a bit one-track minded, is still squinting in confusion and distress at the vessel. Edward cannot fathom anything that would be mind boggling and upsetting all in equal measure, until Stede confirmed what he is seeing with an exhaled name.

    “...Mary?”

    What. No, genuinely. What? Mary… the wife? Mary, of the Bonnet variety? Mary, the woman who Edward distinctly remembers Stede mentioning as part of the reason he left him behind? That Mary?

    After tenuously making up and healing their relationship, Ed and Stede spot a vessel in need on the horizon.

    Stede never had expected to watch the love of his life and his former wife meet.

    Summary

    After saving half his crew from a deserted island, Stede has heard the most troubling gossip. Ed, going on a rampage and sinking ships? Not even bothering to loot them? He knows they didn't part on the best terms, but something must be amiss. He resolves to go and confront the great Blackbeard himself, hoping he doesn't get sunk in the process.
    Meanwhile, aboard the Revenge, Ed resolves to prove himself a monster. During one attack on a transport ship, Izzy convinces him to hold two posh children for ransom. Unfortunately, it seems that those two children are more familiar than he would prefer.

    Summary

    Following his fake death, Stede finds the Revenge abandoned on a small island. He soon realises Ed and his crew have been captured by bounty hunters, and must stage an escape before a vengeful figure from Ed's past executes them all.

    Ed is far from grateful for the rescue. But even though the terrifying persona of 'Blackbeard' has everyone convinced, Stede knows better.
