because their love is as true and merciless as the sea

HANNIBAL | PIRATE AU

William is an ambitious young sailor and skilled fisherman aboard Her Majesty’s Ship the Pearl, sailing under Royal Navy colors. While navigating seemingly calm waters, the Pearl is boarded and its crew taken captive by a vicious band of pirates and their feared Captain Hannibal, infamous for his brutality and taste for fine dining. To survive, William volunteers to serve under the pirate captain, who is fascinated by the boy and takes him under his wing to show William what it truly means to be free. But the entire Royal Navy fleet hunt them relentlessly and soon, young William will have to choose between a life of honor and obeying the law, or a life of piracy and saving the man he’s come to love.

Tell me about the ocean, Bear.

The Ocean is ancient. When our 4.6-billion-year-old planet was young, it was molten rock wrapped in veils of vapor. Some 3.8 billion years ago, our fiery home cooled below the boiling point of water. The vapor hanging over it condensed into rain that poured down and, over millions of years, filled in the lowest hollows on the planet’s uneven surface, forming the Ocean.

The Ocean is bountiful. All life, as best as we can tell, originated from the seas. It is the great Cradle of Life, from which we all began–all the humans, the caterpillars, the amoebae, the oak trees. Many life-forms around today have never left those rich waters. Though approximately three-quarters of all documented species are found on land, versus one-quarter found in the Ocean, this may only be accurate based on a limited understanding (and therefore ultimately not really true) because…

The Ocean is mysterious. We have explored, mapped, documented, and gained a reasonable understanding of less than five percent (5%) of the oceans. Every time we descend into Her depths, we discover dozens of new species, creatures that we never dreamed of existing. We have found coral reefs–ecosystems we previously believed could only be found in warm, shallow water–thriving in water temperatures just above freezing, at depths where there is no sunlight.

The Ocean is vast. She covers over seventy percent (70%) of our planet’s surface. Her waters account for ninety-nine percent (99%) of all available living space on Earth. One cubic kilometer of water holds over 200 billion gallons of it, and the oceans all total to approximately 1,400 cubic kilometers. Just thinking about the number of zeroes associated with the oceans’ volume in gallons makes my heart race.

The Ocean is powerful. Tsunamis–towering tidal waves–can rise as high as a thousand feet above sea level and have death tolls well above one hundred thousand. Cyclonic storms spawned in Her warm waters can grow to astonishing sizes, and come with great costs–both financial and emotional.

The Ocean is frightening. When I was fourteen, I was swimming and body-surfing at the beach. I was sucked under by a wave, and could not fight my way back to the surface. Time and time again, I tried to come up for a breath, but every time, the current pulled me down again. I fought until my ears were ringing and my vision was reduced to two small discs surrounded by blackness, and then–just as I told myself I was going to drown–the same current that held me under suddenly shot me up into the sunlight. My knees struck sand, and I gasped and sobbed and choked for air amid dozens of squealing, laughing, frolicking beachgoers who had no idea of the ordeal I had just faced. More than ten years later, I still fear drowning more than anything else in the world, and still get nervous swimming at the beach.

The Ocean is dangerous. Not half an hour after my near-drowning, a mere fifty feet down the beach, another swimmer was also hurled up onto the shore. But where I had struck with my knees, he struck with his head. The impact fractured his C2 vertebra, leaving him fully paralyzed for the remainder of his time on Earth. I feel I should mention that the Ocean was not particularly rough that day; in fact, She was rather pleasant to swim in… until She wasn’t.

The Ocean is beautiful and nurturing, old and merciless. She contains multitudes. She will give life just as readily as She takes it, and I love Her and am scared beyond words of Her.

My gods, am I scared of Her sometimes…

But all the same, I love Her.

The Sign of the Broken Heart

Well this got out of hand in about 0.5 seconds flat. Inspired mainly by @janestrider with a little of a @dirkar-inspired mythos softly laced in. I hope you like it​! I got a little Too Into It.

They say the Gods once named the stars.

Whatever names they chose, whatever stories they drew in glittering lines from point to point, we do not know if we still speak the same tales. Perhaps we have forgotten, perhaps we have remembered, but all we can know for certain are the words spoken to us by our ancestors as their fingers traced the shapes we came to see among the cosmos, teaching us these lessons that we might remember where we came from, the we might honour the hands that once held our Earth cupped in their steady palms.

Do you have any pirate au ?

Originally posted by still-confused-about-everything

Yes, yes I do, but not as many as I had hoped. I mean I’ve read a lot of pirate AU fics (I’ve read all the AU fics!) but unfortunately most of those are not worth reccing at all, so I’m just going to make a list of my favorite ones. - Admin A

Ps. Here’s a link to our Merman Cas rec.


Title: Drop Anchor

Author: almaasi

Rating: Explicit

Words: 42,124 – Finished

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: This is my all time favorite Destiel pirate au fic. I swear it was so well written that I could almost picture it as a movie in my head. I really wish there was a machine that would just transform fanfics into movies, I’d never leave my home!

Summary: AU. A sailor and an enemy pirate are marooned on an island together, and while awaiting rescue they accidentally achieve domestic bliss.

Or:

Dean Winchester is lieutenant of the Royal Trading Ship Echelon. On a pleasantly sunny but particularly catastrophic day, he is marooned on an island somewhere in the middle of the Pacific Ocean with only one man for company. That man is Castiel, captain of the black-sailed Leviathan: a pirate, no less. Given the circumstances under which they are stranded, rescue seems unlikely, and it could be aeons before a ship even comes by. The two of them may as well make the most of their own private island, personal differences be damned.

Title: The Pirate Who Loved Me

Author: darkphoenix2345

Rating: Mature

Words: 54,460 – Finished

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: I really wanted to love this story but I have a huge problem with the drama. Sometimes I feel like (some) authors who don’t know how to write angst in a realistic and emotional way just slap on dramatic events to their story instead. Not saying that this author is bad or anything, I just got a very HS type of a vibe from this story with all that drama.

Summary: AU-Historical High Seas Adventure French mercenary Castiel Ulliel is blood thirsty to avenge his family’s death. That is why he kidnaps the infamous pirate, the Phoenix aka Dean Winchester as part of his plan for revenge. What he never imagined was falling for his captive.

Title: The Greatest Treasure

Author: anoradh

Rating: Mature

Words: 35,122 – Finished

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: I loved Treasure Planet when I was younger, unfortunately the drama in this fic was a bit too much for me. I’d imagine that anyone who loves HS fics will love this because the angst is very similar :’D

Summary: An AU based on the Disney movie Treasure Planet, which in turn is based on R.L. Stevenson’s Treasure Island.

Ever since he was a little boy, Castiel has known that he is destined for adventure. When a dying man gives him a map to the fabled Treasure Planet, it seems that destiny is about to be fulfilled.

Title: A Pirate Head and a Pirate Heart

Author: thedropoutandthejunkie (elenajames)

Rating: Explicit

Words: 6,011 – Finished

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: Not my favorite fic on this list but still worth reading since it’s only 6k words. (aka, I read this a million years ago and can’t remember shit about it :’D)

Summary: Treachery leaves Dean stranded on a desolate island, but those who would betray him will soon learn you never cross a Winchester.

Title: High Seas and Low Gods

Author: thecouchcarrot

Rating: Explicit

Words: 95,915 – Finished

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: If you love adventure fics then this is a must-read for you! I’ve read this fic twice and it just gets better the more I read it, which is odd since the writing style and the plot are so not my usual style.

Summary:  Lucky Dean and Doc Samuel are infamous Caribbean pirates on the run from Poseidon - and oh yeah, Poseidon’s real and Castiel is working for him. Dean’s on to him, though… in more ways than one. Plagued by Greek curses, hidden agendas, mythical monsters and repressed sexuality, will the Winchesters ever make it back to England alive?

Title: Ocean Blues

Author: lentezon

Rating: Explicit

Words: 38,275 – Finished

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: I’m not sure if I recced this before in the merman Cas list but who cares, it’s here again!

Summary: The crew is supposed to be merciless, and the ship’s captains on friendly terms with mermaids, some of the most dangerous creatures to dwell in the deep waters of the sea. They attack ships at will and leave no survivors, entire crews falling victim to their swords and the mermaids’ songs. But these are merely the stories, and Alfie Jones is about to find out the true background of The Impala—one that might well be even more unbelievable than the rumours.

Title: Escaping Neverland

Author: Thesaurus_with_no_words

Rating: Explicit

Words: 28,542 – 3 Parts so far!

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: Peter Pan AU with Castiel as captain Hook. I loved the idea here but the fic kind of left me hoping for more. Still, a pretty good pirate AU (and there’s not that many of those)!

Summary: During the day, Dean and his lost boys (and gals) fight with captain Castiel and his pirates. But during the nights, on the days that Dean get caught, he warms the captains bed..

Title: Your Money Or Your Life

Words: 4,270 – Finished

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★

Admin A’s notes: Because this rec needs more oneshots incase you guys don’t have the patience to read the long-ass fics I have recced!

Summary: Castiel, the youngest son of Admiral Milton, dreams of adventure, but he knows he’s going to spend the rest of his days in utter boredom. Everything has been arranged already including his marriage. He’s trying to come to terms with his fate when his ship is abducted by pirates and his life suddenly changes its course.
