    Summary

    Izzy is finishing college and has to take a literature class for a requirement. As he works through a course project on Barthes’s A Lover’s Discourse, he is forced to reflect on love in general, love in the time of the HIV/AIDS crisis, love between trans and cis people, gay love, and—ultimately—his love for Edward. Written as extensions of fragments from A Lover’s Discourse, other readings Izzy does for his project, and drafts of his project.

    Part of the North Star series I’ve been working on—an AU set in Minneapolis, initially centered around a gay bar called Jackie’s Place in Bottoms Up.

    Summary

    God, that face. Izzy can barely look at it. The cut of his jaw, the downward turn of his mouth, the stubble. Was he shorn as some sort of perverse punishment? Did he decide to do it himself—some kind of ritual shedding of his namesake after being captured? Did Stede fucking Bonnet do it? Bonnet, that fucking twat, Izzy has to know—

    “Did Bonnet finally get himself killed, then?” 

    Or: Five times Izzy and Ed didn't speak the same language. And one time they did.

    Summary

    Something is clearly off about Izzy, but when Frenchie sees him petting a cat, it finally clicks. Izzy is a fucking witch! In order to protect the crew, Frenchie makes the next obvious step in logic: he has to kill him.

    Summary

    “Read me a story, Izzy,” Blackbeard says, his right elbow digging into the arm of the couch. His arm sways idly, and the tattooed snake looks almost real in the half-shadow of the cabin.

    Summary

    Izzy is fifteen years old and he’s used to the sound of children crying. He could never quite escape it in the workhouse, even after they threatened kids with a switch to the back if they were caught at it often enough.

    But the boy he finds tucked into the base of an oak tree isn’t an orphan or a child from the streets. He’s a little boy in men’s clothing, tailored silk and linen, pale with ruddy cheeks and red marks around his wrists.

    “Are you hurt?” He asks.

    Summary

    Izzy still doesn't precisely know how to feel about work this morning, but it's somewhere between scorn and dread.

    He's already encountered the new General Manager's influence; Edward's unilateral decision last week to change his signature block to read co-General Manager, for fuck's sake, which Izzy had had to push back on. Izzy's also had actual contact with him; brief, over Teams. His impression of the man wasn't precisely flattering.

    Day one of the High Income Tax Policy and Enforcement Branch, and Izzy doesn't really have any idea what to expect.

    Israel Hands has been the Executive Officer to Edward Teach, General Manager of High Income Tax Enforcement, for a long time. He knows this job, he knows Edward, and he knows how to keep his life separate from work - for the most part.

    And then the branch is restructured to include Stede Bonnet, General Manager of Tax Policy, and his team of fucking clowns. Suddenly Izzy has two bosses, irritating coworkers, and a rapidly disintegrating line between the personal and the professional.

    Not to mention Edward's behaving more erratically than usual.

    Summary

    Izzy Hands is not having a very good day. This is an understatement, and also a shame, as it will be the last one he ever has.

    The undiscover'd country from whose bourn

    Summary

    Izzy and Edward fall back into old routines following the news of Stede Bonnet's gruesome death. Even if they won't admit it, they need each other. Unfortunately, they just keep on hurting each other because they can't communicate or set boundaries.

    Stede comes back and simultaneously fixes and ruins everything.

    Ed loves both Stede and Izzy and doesn't want to have to choose. He’s convinced he can make it work between the three of them… Even if his co-captain and first mate want to kill each other (until they don't).

    Summary

    “You know how this works, angel,” Stede counters, knowing he’s playing dirty with the endearment. “What would you like? You’re never this quick to get out of here.”

    “I just… my tie, sir.”

    Stede pulls the hand still in his grasp up to his mouth, kissing the knuckles. “You don’t have to run away just because you want. You know that, yes?”

    Summary

    “Well, that’s that, then. I know he’s your friend, Ed, but he was a toxic influence on the crew. And on you as well,” Stede declared.

    Something about those words stung Ed just a little. He wasn’t not-not himself with Jack. It was just that being around him seemed to bring out the part of him that enjoyed giving and receiving pain. Cut your finger and you’ll forget about your chronic headache, if only for a little while.

    But slowly, Stede was showing him that a moment of warmth and connection could be just as distracting.

    ------
    This story begins assuming Calico Jack left the Revenge, Ed stayed, and there was no betrayal. How would the slow burn of Ed and Stede's relationship have carried on? How long would it take for them to realize their feelings for each other in the absence of life-changing events?

    Some relationship angst, some sweet, soft moments, some jealousy, and some action as well!

    Includes two original characters: an old friend of Stede's named Declan (headcannoned to Jemaine Clement) and Captain Richard Greaves (Idris Elba), an old colleague of Ed's. Declan brings the jealousy. Greaves brings the ghosts of Ed's past.

    Fluff and non-graphic smut.

    Summary

    Idk I just wanted to write a steddy hands that somehow had to do with Izzy losing his toe. idk I feel like it would seriously have traumatized Izzy but also I may have taken liberties here.
    Excerpt:
    "“I care Iz. Fuck. I do” Pain seeps into Edward’s voice. Like it hurts for him to think that Izzy believes that Edward Teach isn’t sure if he gives a fuck about him.

    More than a fuck.

    If he loves him.

    And when did that happen?

    “I love you mate. I’m not him. Not anymore. 'M not gonna hurt you.” Edward says."

    Summary

    Izzy moved through the routine of his day, his mind only half on his work. His brain was busy sifting through his interactions with Edward these past few weeks.
     
    He wasn’t sure if he was getting better or worse.

    I thought long and hard about why these men might act in such fucked up ways, and this is what I came up with. There is an overarching plot, there is smut, but largely this is character driven. I want you to feel things, my dudes.

    I love KrakHands (The term I *just* invented to describe classic Evil!Ed/BDSM slut Izzy) but...as hot as it is...I don't think Ed could keep up that Kraken energy very long.
     

    I'm not over tagging this jawn (including character tags!) because I don't want to spoil the whole story ahead of time. Really, where is all the fun if you know half of what you can expect from the tags alone. Don't you just want to let a story unfold, friend?

    There will be no themes of sexual assault/violence in excess of the show.

    Fuck counter: 176 fucks (I mean the word. They haven't fucked 176 times. That would be ludicrous)

    Summary

    Planning his only daughter's wedding would have been stressful enough, not to mention his persistent doubts about Annie even getting married in the first place, but now, NOW, Ed also had to be on the lookout for three of his ex-lovers running around the island. One of which he’d rarely interacted with sober, one of which he’d parted with on bad terms, and one of which had absolutely broken his stupid fucking heart.

    Mamma mia, here he goes again.

    AKA: A Mamma Mia AU in which Ed is Donna and Stede, Izzy, and Jack are the three Dads™️

    Summary

    The first whip crack sting lands between his shoulder blades and he doesn't do so much as flinch. No, hands tied tight to the mast in front of him, he does worse. Riding an adrenaline high, his lips cut into a sneer and he spits on the deck he’d swabbed to a shine just this morning.

    "That's it?" He challenges. He doesn't know what he's thinking. What the fuck is wrong with him? Why can’t he just keep his stupid mouth shut for once?

    Izzy takes a beating for Edward and the crew of the Satisfaction discovers his secret.
