Friday Fics Fix - He's A Pirate, Why Is This Happening?

'“No, I draw other things, too,” Lucius hissed. He snatched the book back from Ed and flipped through the pages before turning it back around. “Here’s you and Captain Stede, see?”

“Ah well, thanks for leaving my clothes on, mate,” Ed said absentmindedly, staring down at the sketch.'

Title: Fics Fix! Background: purple with white lightning bolt shape

We all know I'm Gay pirate trash, right? OK, glad we could all agree.

So... this is Our Flag Means Death (OFMD) - because I am Gay pirate trash.

And, deep down, aren't we all a little bit Gay pirate trash? 💃😅

(You don't have to answer that - I'm tired and it's hot as hell here, I'm possibly making zero sense, but I will push on regardless! See? Dedication, right there. 😅 I have no idea what I'm saying any more, so this is gonna be fun!)

This is quite a light and fun one, actually, because even my emo goblin spaghetti brain can't have angst all the time.

(I know, right? I was surprised too.)

Basic premise: Ed (aka Blackbeard,) pining over Stede Bonnet like a schoolgirl with a crush.

Seriously, Ed is aware of the schoolgirl nature of this crush and it is embarrassing - he's a pirate! He's Blackbeard! Why is this happening to him?!

This is canon divergence - very well done, might I add, it feels really natural - from the show.

Basically so that the people get what they want - and what the people want is fluffy Gayness and no bad things happening 👍😅

See? Toldja this one wasn't angsty! I don't blame you for not believing me - I didn't either for a while there, but here we are! 

And despite the lack of angst, the fic author manages to fit in lots of patching each other up. 

Which is both impressive, and once again giving the (Queer) people what they want! 😅

(Fandom notes:

Canon divergence is where the fic partly follows canon, but deviates from it at one or more points.

Canon is the 'official' stuff in the book/film/whatever.)

A very few Content Warnings for this one:

- general violence, mostly of the stabbing kind

- injury

References to:

- murder

- bullying

- sexy-times always, be aware that I may have missed something.

This week's fic, then, is:

  1. I love how you mentioned that ppl want fluffy gayness. That's why I love Waititi's shows! They're so easy to get through and good for the mental health.
