Something Is True: Chapter 1 (The Scent of Home)The scent of the ocean mingled with the odor of gunpowder, the acidic smell of alcohol, and the giggles and mumblings of those on its beach, and for Edward Kenway, that unified scent was that of home, the sounds a mere white noise that calmed him as he sipped at cheap rum. When the sun set, it was like a stupor overcame him, a sense of rightness, though others would say he was just tipsy and exhausted.Something Is True: Chapter 1 (The Scent of Home)2 years ago in Romance More Like This
A smaller figure sat beside him on the beach, the blonde not needing to raise his head to assign an identity, "Kidd."
"Kenway," James replied, pulling Edward's rum straight from his hands, and tossing it back, then holding onto it, "It seems yer taste in women...doesn't match yer taste in rum. Tell me you're certain Thatch didn't piss in it..."
"I accept cheap things to afford bigger prizes," he paused, turning to James, "If it were Thatch's piss...it'd get me drunk faster."

"What are you playing with, Kenway?" says Mary, causing me to look up. I'm sitting around the bonfire at Pirate's Cove, toying with a trinket. Mary's back in her James Kidd disguise, but now that I know her secret I can't help but let my eyes trace the curves she's trying to hide. I'd like to say she's failing, but she's spent years wearing it and those curves are barely visible. Damn it. She takes a seat next to me at the now deserted fire. I wonder how long I've been here, staring into nothing. I toss her the locket I've been playing with. She catches and opens it, looking at the picture of me inside.
"It belonged to my wife," I say. She clears her throat.
"Aye, I recall you saying you had one."
"Then you'll also be remembering I told you she left me long ago."
"I seem to recall that as well," she says, handing back the

"You start writing sonnets and I'll need a more active imagination."
"So, tell me Kidd," I say, slowing regaining my wits, "have you a ship to captain at the moment?"
"Not at the moment, no. Though I am due to meet Anne Bonny and Calico Jack. Jack's got a new ship, the Revenge, that I'm eager to put through her paces."
"Calico Jack?" I say, sitting up and giving her an incredulous look. "The same Calico Jack Rackham that stole my ship and left me marooned with Vane?"
"Come now, Edward, he didn't kill you. That's as good as knowing you'd be fine," she responds.
"I still don't trust him," I say.

Edward's Letter: AU Assassin's Creed Black Flag 7 The ship rocks gently beneath us as I study Mary's face in the moonlight. Her hair is down, falling gently around her shoulders, and her breasts are no longer bound. She's taken the leap, revealed herself to the world, her life will never be the same... and she did it all for me. Well, perhaps not all for me. I'm sure some part of her will be glad to no longer be living a lie, but the reasons she gave for keeping her disguise are still valid. It's not like us pirates have suddenly done away with our superstitions.Edward's Letter: AU Assassin's Creed Black Flag 71 year ago in Romance More Like This
If she were to leave the Jackdaw now she'd have a hard time finding another ship to crew, which must mean she has no plans to leave. The thought splits my face into a grin. That means she trusts me and, whether she'll admit it or not, she loves me too. I brush a tendril of hair off her cheek and she swats at me in her sleep. I chuckle. It seems Mary is Mary, even when unconscious.

The Rescue of Anne Bonny: AU AC Black Flag 5 "There must be another route in!" exclaims Mary, slamming her fist against the table and tipping over her mug of ale. I don't blame her for being angry. Anne's been in that dank prison for two weeks now, and we still haven't settled on a plan. Ade and Ah Tabai arrived a few days after us, and we've spent all our time since scouting the prison yard, holding planning meetings, and bribing guards for information. I've spent hours perched on the highest points in Kingston, using what Kidd calls my "eagle vision" to plot out hiding spots, escape routes, guard rotations, basically anything that might assist in this rescue.The Rescue of Anne Bonny: AU AC Black Flag 51 year ago in Romance More Like This
We have our escape planned out; a path that leads from the back of the prison to the water's edge, where a row boat will be waiting. Unfortunately, we can't risk using that as our way in.

"For the last time Kenway, I ain't leaving you! One of my targets has surfaced and I need to take him out before he goes to ground. Quit being a baby. I'll only be gone a week, and Adewale has volunteered to fill my place until I get back."
"Tell Ade not to bother," I sulk. "We'll spend the week in Kingston. Perhaps visit some of the new whorehouses." I'm poking her for a reaction. I'm hoping maybe she'll fly into a rage, or perhaps beg me not to. Or, even better, decide not to go after all. I get none of these.

"Two reasons," I say, pressing a kiss to her neck. "One, because you are better than they were."

The shrieks from the rabid girls behind you were drowned out as you and Heracles finally passed through the door to the school roof and somehow managed to shut and lock it behind you.
"Phew," you breathed, gasping for air and collapsing to the ground. "That was a close one."
Heracles sat down. He had, about a month ago, gained a popularity that came from well, no one knew exactly.

She felt a sharp twisting in her chest at the very thought, and she wanted nothing more than to crumple to the floor and cry. She looked towards the island, only able to see the outline of the cliffs and the glimmer of waves as they drifted onto the shore. Elle wanted to hurl herself over the side of the ship, to swim back to Mias and hold him in her arms one last time. But she knew there would be no point in it, that all the wishing and crying, all the promises and kisses in the world would never bring him back. All she could do now was hope that Mias knew what she felt for him. That his love for her was matched by her love for him.

Hesitating, he cracked open on eye, adjusting to the faint light in the room and took a look around. The walls were a dull gray, he was lying on an old wooden bed, and there were bars… What? Wait a minute. He sat up on his elbows trying to get a better view of the room. He was in what looked like an prison cell, though a bit more furnished.

It wasnt that he was stupid; it was just that his view on gender was different to that of other peoples. Sure, girls wore skirts, men had deeper voices- he learned all that stuff about puberty and adolescence when he was still in school- but apart from those few minor anatomical features, were men and women really all that different?
