    Summary

    Just what we all needed, a part fucking 16 of this mayhem embellished with the usual angst and pain, angry one-eyed Captains, stupid, one-legged poodles, angry gunners, worried first mates, a horny girl in men's clothes and a certain hat wearing demon lurking in the shadows.

    There's a huge risk (chance) that this series will include my first serious lesbian smut, but I'm not sure. How ever, here's to you, E_A_Phoenix, as another little treat for reasons you already know (you deserve good things!) and also to you TuridTorkilsdottir because finding TWO more lowbone shippers is like finding a second ship of Urca Gold :D

    All the love and whoever reads this and has any thought about it what so ever, feel free to comment! <3<3<3

    Summary

    Mary and Silver POV time again because, well, they have things to say - or think. Silver is forced to feel shit, Mary gets to know more of Nassau, her Captain is still bedridden and Billy, well, he's a like a big, sweet dog and Mary's picture of pirates just don't fit anymore.

    I was asked to bring in Joji and Flint POV in the story as well, but I'm afraid I'll have to disappoint you, RaptorSquad22, because I simply find it too hard to keep the story in line if I add too many characters. I hope some Read and Silver will help <3

    And as always, I raise my cup of rum to you, E_A_Phoenix. May the wind be prosperous to your amazing ships! <3<3<3

    Summary

    “Wha’s this?”
    “The alphabet.”
    “Ye’re daft. I cannae bloody read.”
    “Exactly.”

     

    Well, this... this is just strange and I don't know what this story is doing to me, but apparantly, Billy thought Ned needed to learn how to read and write, even if his angry lover is still in a blindfold. And oh, we get a pretty angry Dr. Howell showing up :)

    This is, of course, to you, E_A_Phoenix, with love, and naturally, the title is inspired from Nightwish's "The Poet and the Pendulum" because why not.

    Summary

    Oh yes, it's that time of the week again: me posting another Lowbones fic and this has gone way out of hand... So, this is more talk and less action, because well, Ned is badly injured and Billy takes care of him, which isn't too easy.

    Title is stolen from Children Of Bodom's song "Children Of Bodom".

    This is, of course, for you, E_A_Phoenix, and I MUST add that I'm feeling somewhat horrible for not having started on your latest gift (you're increadible, by the way!) since I've not had time to sit down and relax into reading mode, but I'm looking at it with longing eyes and I'm gonna dig into that delicously looking Gunnbones delight some time today!

    All the love to you, baby <3<3<3

    Summary

    Aaaand, apparantly this story decided it needed more Read POV and Silver POV and I have no idea how this happened, but the sly quartermaster and the suspicious girl are more or less bonding over drinks in the house where Billy tries to nurse Ned back to health.

    Title stolen from Nightwish's "The Crow, The Owl And The Dove" and this turned out quite more depressing than I intended to. Fucking pirates, man, I swear... I don't even blame you this time, dear E_A_Phoenix, but it's still for you <3

    Summary

    Ned may have been rescued from the dunegeon, but is there anything left to save...?

    Title once again stolen, this time from Keep Of Kalessin's "Dark As Moonless Night": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vH4p-SxEiqw

    And of course, this is dedicated to the best crackship supporter ever: the amazing E_A_Phoenix, my pirate queen.

    Summary

    Well, well, well... if it aint part 10 of what was supposed to be a little porny jowl that turned into a fucking warship (or something). And Billy Bones is about to experience a new friendship, in the midst of this mess.

    As usual, I blame E_A_Phoenix for this and refuse to take any responsibility for this. Pirates have their own ways and they just don't listen to me.

    There are descriptions of blood and stuff, so, just read the tags. Title once again stolen from Nightwish, this time from the masterpiece "The Poet and the Pendulum": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gbn9GczYBkw

    Summary

    Alright, this... this is a mess and didn't turn out the way I expected at all so... Plenty more characters and POV's, for some fucking reason and yes there is angst, pain, blood and some smut. Honestly, I don't even know how this happened... I blame you, E_A_Phoenix! YOU take care of these rumdrenched looney bin idiots now! XD (Bless you!)

    Summary

    Title is inspired from Children of Bodom's "Mask of Sanity" but even more from Nightwish's "Ghost Love Score" and I pretty much wrote this whole piece while listening to this version on repeat: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4V_eoR6r1Tw

    In this installment, things get more angsty and uncertain. I hope I'm not about to make you miserable, E_A_Phoenix, because I'm honestly not even in control of this story anymore. It just... tells itself.

    "Scent of the sea before waking afterwards
    Brings me to thee
    Into the blue memory
    My fall will be for you
    Into the blue memory"

    Summary

    Remember: according to history, Ned Low wasn't prone to hurt women or children. I feel that's important to keep in mind if you feel suspicious about some of the tags.

    Comments are always much appreciated and if you feel hesistant to the idea of having a bite of Ned Low the psycho, I want to ease your concern by telling you that Black Sails, for all it's glorious characters, made Ned Low far too much of a psychopath than he actually was, and that is NOT the case in this series at all.

    Title is from Skyrim's "The Dragonborn Comes" and Malukah's phenomenal composition:

    As always, I dedicate it to the one who woke me up from the BS slumber. I hope you enjoy it E_A_Phoenix and I promise I will dig myself into more of your works as soon as I'm back in reading mode again! <3<3<3

    Summary

    I should probably post this tomorrow when I'm sober, but fuck that. I love my Lowbones crack ship and welcome anyone who'll give it a chance.

    Title is shamelessly inspired by Nightwish's "Away" and I dedicate this piece of angsty crack smut to E_A_Phoenix who woke me up from the Black Sails dormancy I've had since November 2017. I honestly don't know how to thank you.

    To any other person who might give this a peek: I truly understand why Billy Bones and Ned Low looks like complete bullshit (because canon wise it is) but BS didn't really make Ned Low justice and both the historical figure as well as Tadhg Murphy deserve better.

    Summary

    "Low was born a dodgy character, but he lost his whole family. They're all he cared about, and I played his sadism through that. He's sick and twisted but full of love."

    Tadhg Murphy on playing the role of Ned Low in Black Sails

    We were never told Ned Low's backstory and that irked me a lot when I read about him. He was gruesome as hell with men, but not towards women or children and it's a pure shame an otherwise excellent show just used him as a throw-in villain that was almost comically easy to hate, while so many other characters were so human and diversed.

    This, I guess, is my attempt to give him some justice and add the human parts Tadhg Murphy obviously put into his role, only had no scenes that would give the audience the history and understanding HE had. Title stolen from Mulan's "Reflection".

    Summary

    For as long as he'd remembered, he's had a song in his mind and words scrawled over his heart, but no one in Nassau says his words, and the song in his mind grows louder when they're at sea.

    There's always been tales of pirates being lured to their deaths, by sirens and mermaids and creatures of the deep. They’ve been told since he’d been brought onto the Walrus, and he’s heard them all the same, they all end in the same result. They’re told alongside stories of men and women who fall in love because of words that are tattooed onto their skin at birth.

    To Billy, all tales come with a grain of truth.

    Summary

    This is part four of the freestanding follow-up to the modern AU "Aces Of Spades And Hearts" series, that takes place about three years after Billy's and Ned's wedding in "At Ends Of Nights" (part 7 of "Aces...").

    Ned is not the villain here, but a victim of gang rape and is on the very shaky road to recovery and his husband Billy knows that his ex boyfriend Woodes Rogers was one of the rapists.

    "Embrace The Darkest Night, Save Me From The Light" is part four and continues a couple of days after "On The Lap Of The Waves", where Ned is very slowly making progress towards recovery. The title is from Keep Of Kalessin's "Dark As Moonless Night".

    I will use both 1st and 3rd person pov with both Billy and Ned. Each chapter will be named with the pov. I also want to point out that this is VERY canon divergent when it comes to the characters, especially Ned Low. Wipe out the image of him as a cruel sadist.

    If you're a fan of History Channel's "Vikings" and remember Tadhg Murphy's role Arne, or have seen this awesome actor in another role than Ned Low, "my" Ned will be far closer to those than the Ned Low character. And Billy is definately not a "Black Sails season 4 Billy".

    Ned is not the villain here, but a victim of gang rape and is on the very shaky road to recovery and his husband Billy finally knows that his ex boyfriend Woodes Rogers was one of the rapists.

    "On The Lap Of The Waves" is part three and continues a couple of days after the last chapter in "Banished From Sanctuary", where Ned's PTSD made him come to an extreme conclusion. The title is from Moonsorrow's "Sankaritarina".

    Summary

    This is part two of the freestanding follow-up to the modern AU "Aces Of Spades And Hearts" series, that takes place about three years after Billy's and Ned's wedding in "At Ends Of Nights" (part 7 of "Aces...").

    Ned is not the villain here, but a victim of gang rape and is on the very shaky road to recovery and his husband Billy still doesn't know who did this to him. Ned knows, but can't make himself tell, since one of the rapists is Billy's ex boyfriend, Woodes Rogers...

    "Banished From Sanctuary" is part two and continues a couple of weeks after the last chapter in "While Your Lips Are Still Red".

    I will use both 1st and 3rd person pov with both Billy and Ned. Each chapter will be named with the pov. I also want to point out that this is VERY canon divergent when it comes to the characters, especially Ned Low.

    Summary

    Last part (promise) of my domestic modern AU ace husbands Ned and Billy. This has been a nice comfort blanket to me for the fourth BS season. Self-indulgent fluff is much needed, especially for a Billy fan now ;) Major thanks for the sweet comments on this weird little shipwreck series <3

    Summary

    This is entirely self-comforting fluff to handle the pain a poor Billy Bones fan has to suffer in season 4. I needed my fluffy, domestic ace husbands - and a lighthearted John Silver - to wrap my wounded fangirl heart in a comforting AU blanket. But in this fic, poor Ned needs it more than I do.

    Warning for cavities and crying <3

    Summary

    Title from Bathory's "Hammerheart".

    Someone - and by someone I mean aro-stova (differentsizesofinfinity) - wanted a wedding and well... it's not really the wedding, but Billy's and Ned's wedding night and a little glimpses from the wedding. I did some research on asexual couples stories about their wedding nights and I loved it. The pressure to have romantic and hot sex on the night after a fucking exhausting wedding is a thing I've always thought to be more than a little weird anyway.

    And to make my sappy nerds even more unconventional, the wedding night is actually their first night together in their new home. Major warning for cavities, nausea and a lot of romantic(?) Bathory songs I even added links to... <3 (Yes, I thought of you, AshesOfYggrasil)

    And as always, it's also a gift to one of the fandoms sweetest silverflint shippers, "my captain, oh captain" <3
