    Summary

    “Ridiculous.” Blackbeard scoffed.
    Stede nodded along. “Reading isn’t everything, is it.”
    “Pfft. Me. Reading. As if.” Blackbeard rolled his eyes.
    Stede waved a dismissive hand. “Perish the thought.”
    “Yeah. Fuck if I care.”
    “You’d hate it. Staring at tiny fonts.”
    “Right. So lame.”
    -
    Stede finds his way back to The Revenge and teaches Blackbeard how to read and write. They both quickly find that you can’t spell Stede without Ed.
    -
    Note: The smut is in the second chapter only, so if you're not into that, you can read the first chapter and it will conclude there just fine.

    Summary

    And Blackbeard was looking at Stede like that. The burning candle warmth of his eyes and the slow wax trickle of his smile. Like he had been melting just by being near Stede. The loose cross of his arms as if he could hug himself. Carry the catch of Stede’s tongue against his teeth with him like a tattoo scrolled around his bugling forearm.


      Five Times someone caught Ed looking at Stede, and the One Time Stede caught Ed looking at him.

    Summary

    "Already feeling better, eh?" Stede says, breathless and pleased. 

    "Mph." Ed says against his lips, crawling over him and sliding a hand under his jaw. Stede is very receptive, pliant and interested underneath him, and he wraps his arms around Ed's back, nails lightly scratching and making Ed drop onto his knees, goosebumps springing up over his skin. The angle that he hits his left knee at sends a sharp lance of pain through it, making him curse and roll onto his back, cursing "fuckingfuckbastardknee" as he does so. 

    "Oh, bugger, I'm sorry!" Stede says, reaching a hand down to wrap around Ed's knee, tilting it slightly to make sure it looks alright the way he does whenever it gets messed up. "Do you need me to do the clicky-thingy?"

    Summary

    Stede spreads his hands in front of him, and Louis and Alma both grin up at him. “Do you remember the stories I used to tell you about those fearsome pirates who lived out at sea? And, remember how I told you I went on adventures with Blackbeard? Well—”

    “Mom already told us you married Blackbeard,” Alma cuts him off, taking— Well, taking the wind right out of his sails, as it were.

    “Alma,” Mary hisses at her. “Don’t interrupt y—”

    “No, no, that’s fine, it’s— It’s fine, really,” Stede says. “I was— I was, admittedly, a little excited to tell you, but— That’s fine, honestly, we—”

    “No, no, do it anyway,” Mary encourages him.

     
    or: louis, alma, mary, and doug spend four days and three nights aboard the revenge, stede's families become one, and his entire heart combusts in the process.

    Summary

    Blackbeard kills kids.

    Only the really naughty ones though, the ones who deserved it. That’s what Black Pete had said to Stede, only a few short days before their fated meeting with said infamous pirate captain. It hadn’t really processed at the time, just another barely believable description of the mythical man idolised by Stede’s fanciful employee. It isn’t true. It can’t be. The man standing in front of Stede now has only killed one person, he’d said as much.

    But Stede had watched him order the deaths of men. Blackbeard may not have been the one to do it, but his body count was higher than a singular digit. He was perfectly capable of being the monster so many believed him to be.

    Stede holds the wailing baby closer. He meets Ed’s expression with one that he hopes is defiant, or determined. Something strong.

    “She’s coming with us,” he says and his tone is a challenge.
