  1. Summary

    The City is a place where all mythologies and folklore mingle and mix. It is the mother of Cities. The rainbow serpent bridge may turn into a serpent again during rush hour commute (and isn't *that* annoying). While the red brick road spirals out through parts of itself that the City has discarded. The City sprawls across space. It condenses on an island. It skyscrapers and what happens in the clouds stays there. Although, sometimes it may rain god infants. Eros and Inanna give a presentation on polyamory at their local chapter of City Love gods (the Power point was amazing!). Gilgamesh and his dead friend Enkidu run a charity to gather up stray Sumerian zombies. While Odin and Set strike a deal. Monster fog. Monstrous traffic. But if you go in the park, don't eat the Gingerbread House. It's a landmark.

  4. Summary

    John Watson had worked hard to be accepted at Starfleet Academy. As an Augment, a descendant of the super soldiers who seized power on Earth during the Eugenics wars, he's had to work twice as hard. Play twice as hard too, because screw them. The only path to ship duty for an Omega is extra credits like T.A.ing a Professor's class. The mysterious Commander Holmes, an Augment like himself, would do nicely. Very nicely.

    Sherlock Holmes had gone to considerable effort to put his past - and his family - behind him. His career in Starfleet hadn't gone exactly as envisioned. Bounced from research facility to facility, his analysis on how to defeat the Borg ignored, now he's finally washed up teaching at the Academy. His T.A. is fascinating. Of course, he's entirely above all that alpha biological nonsense.

    Starfleet never really intended to assemble a crew with a half trained doctor and an alpha Augment with authority issues. But they also didn't really intend for the Borg to make it quite as far as they did.

    And so...These are the Voyages of the USS Bakerstreet. Her five year mission (make that ten (okay fine twelve year mission + time travel)), to seek out new life and new civilizations. To go boldly.

    Summary

    Everyone in the world has a magical ability – Some sort of a knack. For a lot of people, that knack involves small talents – Like tying one’s shoe perfectly every time, or having the exact amount of change on hand for any given moment. To be a pirate, though, your knack has to be powerful. Controlling the tides, or summoning a storm to hinder your opponent.

    Every year, the fae invites all the pirates of the land to compete in the Trial of the Marauders, a ruthless test of power and wit to find the best of the best.
    Blackbeard has won every year for nearly a decade. He's planning on winning again. But after an incident with the English, he finds himself down a ship. Luckily there's guileless Captain Bonnet ready to offer his own ship for the taking. Borrowing. Yes, the borrowing.

    It'll be easy to convince the crew to mutiny, and Blackbeard will be sailing under his own colors again, ready to win it all. Right?

    Summary

    The first thing they see - apart from Captain Bonnet himself, all silked up and frilly and a sight in his own right - is the cat sitting primly by his ankles. She's a white, well-groomed thing, coat as pale and smooth as snow, with a delicate pink ribbon around her neck and a little golden bell hanging at her throat. And sure, she's a little big, on the large side as house cats go, reaching right up to his knee, and a bit leggy as well but the crew still takes one look at her and feel their estimation of their new captain drop another sharp couple of notches. 

    This, they think incredulously, is the man that proposes to be our fearsome pirate captain?

    "My name is Captain Stede Bonnet," the new captain says proudly, sweeping an arm out in greeting, looking so pleased and chuffed and ever so slightly nervous to meet them. "And this is Miss Daisy Bonnet, though of course you may all call her captain as well." 

    "Two dubloons on a mutiny by the end of the week." Frenchie murmurs with a sharp bite of mirth. On his shoulder, Beauregard lets out a soft tittering laugh, the songbird's beak clicking.

    "Not taking that bet." Pete replies snappishly, still glowering sullenly at the captain.

    Summary

    “I reckon you’ve got a bit of a reputation, mate.”
    “Oh?” Stede isn’t sure whether to be pleased.
    “Yeah. They say you’re pretty fucking good at showing lads a good time.” The man smiles in a way that softens his fearsome appearance.
    “Is that so? I suppose I am,” Stede says, and now he is blushing a pleased shade of pink.
    “I’ve heard all kinds of blokes say they’ll never forget the nights they had with you,” the man says. “Which is pretty fucking fascinating as most guys get around. Someone in every port, y’know? Which means,” the man says, fixing his eyes on Stede’s face, “you’ve gotta be something special.”
    “Well,” Stede says modestly, “I’ve gotten rather good at making tea.”

    Summary

    Stede finds the house. When he comes back to their room at the inn, he won’t rest—won’t let Ed rest—until Ed’s seen it. His eyes are bright in that way that makes Ed’s guts feel scooped out with a spoon. So Ed hurries into his boots and goes with him.

    The once-white paint is stripped by weather and wear, a portion of the roof is caved in, and the spokes of the wraparound porch are all gnawed through by animals.

    Ed gazes up at the broken windows and the birds that have built nests there. At his side, Stede is waiting, rocking back and forth on his heels.

    "It’s perfect," says Ed.

    ***

    Or: Ed and Stede leave the island together, and they don’t look back.

    Summary

    “Everyone’s got a tribe. Like finding like. Where do you think you fit?”

    Stede’s never felt like he fits anywhere. Like a lighthouse, obstructive and crude, stuck on a cold, craggy shoreline, Stede is perpetually catching sight of others skirting around him in his light, before looking away again. 

    “Honestly, I’m just– just Stede.”

    Boring. Divorcee. A late-bloomer and metaphorical virgin to the nuances of the modern gay man. 

    Ed hums, stretches his legs again. The leather of his pants crinkles. “I like that.”
