    Summary

    “What am I going to do with your name?” Max asks, a little incredulous.

    “Whatever you want,” the salesman says. “Didn’t you want something real?”

    Max heard a story once about the importance of answering questions like that carefully. If something emerges from the forest and asks for your name, don’t give it up, the story went. Offer only what you know you can live without. She’s never heard a story that tells her what to do when something emerges from the forest and offers its name to you.

    Summary

    John has an Instagram account. And it’s a fucking popular one too, he’s proud to admit. He hates the word influencer, but, yeah. He’s got 35,000 followers and has been sponsored twice. However, out of his 35k followers, there is only one he really speaks to: a certain @captainflint. He and Flint have never met in real life, but that doesn't stop John from falling head over heels. Is he in way over his head? Probably. Is he gonna stop self-indulging? Absolutely not. This can really only go a few ways...

    Summary

    Life is a struggle (they all know), but never in a thousand years they would have thought success would be so hard working.

    Silver is King, but his tethers are fragile, he doesn't know where he belongs. Flint is complete, at last, but his mind is a treacherous place ready to fold him in new challenging ways. Thomas tries to find himself among the rubble of his previous life (lives?), but it is slow and not always linear.

    And Nassau is a barrel of gunpowder ready to explode.

    Summary

    Imagine if James and the Hamiltons got their chance, ever so briefly, to follow their passions, their plans. There is no argument, no politics, no ferrying people away in the dead of night. Instead, as they sail towards hope, the pardons still in hand, the Navy brutally take Thomas' life under bright daylight, in the middle of a vast ocean, and dump his body overboard.

    Thomas is dead.

    They were so close, they were on their way to Nassau, young and naïve and full of hope and determination, and then England said no, and ripped Thomas straight from James' hands.

    But James doesn't do no. He is determined, he will undo this, he will dive down into the Underworld itself if he must to get Thomas back. Except nothing is ever as easy as that, and James finds himself faced with choices beyond anything he could have ever imagined possible. For he is not the first to try convincing the Guardian of the Dead to release a lover, and he won't be the last. And the harder he tries, the more entangled he finds himself in the deep...

    Summary

    When Maria says that she wants to be married before her god, Rebekah accepts James as their only suitable officiant.

    “Yes,” he says, when asked. “Of course. But wouldn’t you want Thomas to do it?”

    Rebekah frowns and shakes her head. “No. Thomas will give me away.”

    This, she understands, is a Christian tradition: fathers own their daughters until such a time as the daughter are married to a man. Rebekah has no father left on this Earth, but Thomas is her family in a way no other man will ever be.

    So she claims Thomas as hers, and Maria claims John. This does not bother Rebekah, though she claims John in other ways.

    “Hey,” John says, affronted. “I’m a captain. I was a captain more recently than him. Not that I want to officiate, by any means.”

    “No, of course not,” Rebekah says. “You’re going to recite the sheva b'rachot.”

    -o-

    This story marks the end of the Tether Series.

    The deepest thanks to eufry for the sensitivity read. As always, I am a white, abled-bodied, Christian person writing a story that includes non-white, disabled, and/or Jewish characters. If I have fucked up in any way, please let me know.

    Summary

    Any crew of pirates "agree on certain articles, which are put in writing, by way of bond or obligation, which every one is bound to observe, and all of them, or the chief, set their hands to it." (- Exquemelin). Luckily for John Silver, he never was much of a pirate.

    or

    Silver breaks every rule laid out before him, and is somehow rewarded each time.

    Summary

    Madi has always wondered if Silver understands what is between him and Flint as well as she. To her, it has always been obvious, from the way the two of them had fit together, had worried about each other, had acted as one. She had tried to bring it up with Silver back when they were together. But Silver had shaken her off, too enmired in the idea that he or Flint would prove each other’s downfall. Or perhaps just unwilling to open his eyes to the fact that he had loved Flint.

     

     

    It was, unfortunately for the both of them, even more obvious after the thing between them had broken. Just as Silver had thrown away the war out of love for her, Flint had let Silver take away the war rather than kill him.

     

    God. What a group the three of them were, showing love by betrayal.

     

    Post-canon. Madi and Flint find their way back to Silver.
