    Summary

    This fic is the slowest of slow burns. It was intentionally written to build gradually as a cohesive narrative that expands over time because you can't get a good emotional release without FOREPLAY.

    What if Ed didn't go full 'Evil-Ed' post Stede? How would Izzy react to an Ed that still wasn't quite right even though Bonnet was gone?

    What would it be like if they thought Stede Bonnet was fucking dead, but then he wasn't?

    Themes include: grief, loss, guilt, forgiveness, hurting people you love, healing, backsliding, the effects of childhood trauma, consent, power dynamics.

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

    I'm not over tagging this jawn because I don't want to spoil the whole story ahead of time. Where's 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?

    Fuck counter: 237 fucks (I mean the word. They haven't fucked 237 times. That would be ludicrous)

    Summary

    After Edward returns to the Revenge, Izzy tries his best to be patient and take care of him. Unfortunately his best isn't very good.

    "There’s a small snuffle from the direction of the sleeping nook; it too has been closed up, hidden behind thick drapes. Izzy's stomach sinks and he sighs, twisting his gloved hand over his beard. He hadn't thought of it this morning, when adrenaline was running wild through him, but he recognizes this now. This is how it goes. He knows Edward’s mercurial moods like he knows the tides, the currents around the islands, the motions of the stars. After the wildness, the excitement, the obsession, comes the drop."

    Summary

    Prequel to Silenced,
    Stede has a plan, it gets interrupted while he and Izzy are shopping.

    --
    Izzy blinks in confusion. “You want to go shopping. With me? Without Edward?”

    “Yes exactly!” Bonnet chirps, flashing that painfully bright smile at him.

    He knows that Bonnet has been making an effort to tolerate him lately, for Edward’s sake. They’ve even spent time, just the two of them. They have done the ship's logs or inventories together as two of the three people on board who could read and write. Izzy has been helping Bonnet get better at sword play, as Edward is more interested in flirting than teaching him, and someone has to keep the Captains alive so that they can waste the crew’s time with said flirting. But this is different. He can think of no practical reason Bonnet would request his company here.

    “Why?” he asks after a long moment trying to figure it out.

    Summary

    He really didn’t want to be alone with his thoughts right now. In fact he’d rather not think at all right now.

    “Actually, I have a request.” Izzy said and looked Stede in the eye.

    “Oh anything. Ask away!” Stede smiled.

    Izzy tightened his grip on Stede’s cuff and pulled him closer, so that their noses almost touched.

    “Fuck me.” 

    The tone of his voice was a mixture of demanding and pleading. Maybe a good shag would clear his head.

    “Please…” he added when he saw Stede’s eyes widen in surprise.

    Summary

    When Stede gets knocked overboard, Izzy jumps in to save him without thinking. Ed and Stede convince him not to do that again.
    ____________

    “You fucking flung yourself into a raging ocean to save Stede. And really, mate, I should be fucking furious with you, risking your damn life like that.” Ed shakes him a little. “Like I could live without you.”

    Stede lifts his head off Ed’s shoulder and looks at him for the first time. He reaches out and squeezes Izzy’s wrist. “Like either of us could,” he murmurs, his voice rough from the sea water.

    “You don’t know what you’re saying,” Izzy says, shaking his head. “Either of you.”

    Summary

    Everything about this situation was wrong and if he had to admit that maybe the pretty idiot Ed chose to care for was a good and needed influence, that maybe sometimes love wasn’t something you stopped believing in along with fairies and sirens, then he’d do it.
    He would put the broken man he loved back together to give him another chance at happiness, even if it killed him.

    Summary

    There's a man on the ship, but it makes no sense.
    There's a man on the ship who shouldn't be there, an extra mouth to feed but no extra food gone from the stores, no shortage of water.
    There's a man on the ship that hasn't been eating or drinking the entire month since the ship left port, but that can't be.

    Summary

    There is a moment neither of you speak of.

    Years past now, the stink of rot and piss and brine, a cell that has half an inch of water in it, gray and fetid, sun shining weak through a single loose board up where the hooks dangle down. Seated in the muck are you and him, him and you, back to back with your hands bound, your ankles hobbled, and-

    He laughs, tipping his head back against your own, grinding in against your skull like the little shit he is.

    “Don’t have enough hurts already, Teach,” you mutter, nudging your shoulder back, irritated.

    Summary

    Ed didn't move except to prop his hands behind his head, seeming to give Izzy free rein to do as he pleased. Izzy wasn't fooled though. He'd been given a specific task and any deviation from it, even when Ed was this relaxed, would only end badly for them both. Oh, Izzy wanted it to end badly. They weren’t like the men who could lean shoulder-to-shoulder on cold nights, or shared hammock space easy as sharing a flask. The crack of Ed's fist was the most Izzy could hope for and if he was lucky, truly blessed for a night, Ed would strip off his gloves and land the blow against Izzy's cheek—not a single bit of leather between them.

    For a moment, Izzy considered doing something to stoke that rage... until he realized it wasn't necessary.

    The smoke must have been getting to him too. Ed's pants-leg was still drawn up above his knee, bare skin glittering like gold.

    ***

    Kinkmeme fill for Izzy taking care of Ed's knee over the years. Link to prompt in the author's notes!

    Summary

    Then Stede-fucking-Bonnet came back. And just like everything else Stede-fucking-Bonnet had ever done, he had never done anything as expected. Not even in a fuckery way, unless a fuckery is what one was to call what Bonnet was doing to Izzy’s life.

    Summary

    One early morning, Izzy and Alec go to starbucks for their daily dose of caffeine, where they meet Magnus, Catarina and Madzie in line. Aromantic Izzy plays wingwoman as she tries to set Alec and Magnus up.

    Inspired by this prompt:
    Went to starbucks and everyone looks like zombies and I'm spacing out myself. All of a sudden, this guy stands next to me and goes, "This is crazy!" Then grabs my hand to hold it. We both look at each other.
    Him: "You're not my wife."
    Me: "Nope."
    Girl behind us: "You're holding the wrong hand, honey."
    Him: "You sure?"
    Me: "We're sure."
    Him: "I feel committed to finishing this Starbucks experience with you now."
    Me: "I'm not paying."
    Him: "Oh, nevermind. Let me go back to my wife."
    Wife: "Well I'm not paying either!"
    Guy in front of us: "Come hold my hand sir, I'll buy you any Frappuccino you want."
    The man goes and holds hands with the strange man. He looks at both me and his wife and goes, "At least someone cares about me."

    Summary

    Hi all! I'm back to answer the question no one asked:

    what if Israel Hands is a grumpy old battle scarred tomcat and Roach is the only person on board who can tame him? And what if these two feral men find themselves raising a cat of mysterious origins?

    As before, there's angst, healing, profound silliness, culinary antics, and also now a literal cat. The slow burn continues, because let's face it - Roach could catch anyone he wants. He's after Izzy for that tender tender rehabilitation.

    Part one was mostly Roach POV, this work is mostly Izzy POV. I'll be back to visit these two, but for now here's a sweet little interlude.
