    Summary

    Indifference.

    Stede expected so many things when he finally managed to return to the Revenge, but that wasn’t one of them.

    Maybe this is his penance?

    Summary

    Set immediately following the events of Season 1, "Two Ships Adrift at Sea" follows the story of Stede and Ed finding their way back to one another.
    It really could have been a much simpler thing, truly, but unfortunately the two unknowingly dance away from one another rather than closer, with no small bit of emotional pain resulting. Luckily Ed stumbles across the one person, besides Stede, who may be able to help him make some sense out of what happened, while Stede manages to build a bridge across the rockiest of waters.

    Summary


    “Anyway,” he continues, “then Ed — that is, Blackbeard, bent over me and said—”

    “Do the Blackbeard voice!” Wee John exclaims.

    “He does voices?” asks Finn, in an awed whisper.

    Wee John scoffs. “Of course he does voices. He’s our captain.”

    Well. Stede can hardly disappoint, then. He clears his throat and thinks of Ed’s voice: its lower pitch, roughened with a hint of rasp, the heavier tongue that drags his vowels and thickens his consonants. “The Gentleman Pirate, I presume.”

    In which Stede accidentally convinces the pirating world that Gentlebeard (or Blackbonnet or Stedward; there's a poll) is canon, reunites his crew, and gets his boyfriend back.

    Summary

    Ed ends up in Barbados after a storm at sea. Parted with his crew and after just having found out the devastating news of The Gentleman Pirate's demise, he is taken in by a lady with some quite liberal views on pirates.

    Stede is a man on a mission and that mission is correcting probably the biggest mistake he had made in his life. But that would mean getting The Revenge and Ed back with nothing but the clothes on his back and a dinghy to his name. Not that Stede lets that deter him.

    A.K.A. Probably the millionth reunion fic, but Ed and Mary are BFFs now.
