Ade's Message: AU Assassin's Creed Black Flag 8 "Letter for you, Cap'n!" yells a boy, running up to the ship before we've even fully docked.Ade's Message: AU Assassin's Creed Black Flag 8 by Phsbarbie
I laugh good-naturedly. "Aye, lad, you could wait until we lower the gang plank."
"I was given 5 gold Reales to make sure you got this letter as soon as your feet left your ship," he says, out of breath.
5 gold Reales to a street urchin like this? Must seem like a fortune. More than enough to make sure the letter gets delivered. Must be important.
Instead of waiting for the plank I brace myself against the railing and launch over the side, landing on the dock. True to form, no sooner have my feet touched ground than the boy presses the letter into my hand.
I flip him another coin. "You've done your task well, lad. Take this with my thanks."
His eyes light up and he dashes away, not wanting to give me a chance to change my mind.

"What's that, sweetums?" the woman asked.
"Tamplers. You was aseep and talk about tamplers." The girl hadn't yet gotten the hang of verb tenses or the 'sl' sound, but her meaning was clear enough.
Oh yes. I did have a bad dream about Templars last night. Must have talked in my sleep. "Templars are..." How best to describe them to a three-year-old? "Templars are people who want to control other people."
"Con troll? Do they live under a bridge like a troll?"
"No, 'control' means when someone won't let you do what you want."
"Like when Daddy won't let me touch his shiny thing!" The other day she had happened to see Desmond training with his Hidden Blade, and she had wanted to play with it. "Daddy is a tamplers!" She smiled, happy at learning a new word.
"No, that's different. Daddy had to have special training to use the shiny thing, because it's dangerous if you don't know how to use it. He's not a Templar, he just doesn't want you to hurt yourself
Inversion: Part 2"I ent exactly a man."Inversion: Part 2 by Atlantima
At these Words, Edward jerked his head round to face the fellow, and queried, "How's that?"
He supposed certain Sodomites, soaked through with Levitical concerns as to the Morality of their Pleasures, might not consider themselves as True Men. He'd have thought James' Intellect to be above such daffy Rationalizations, though. Surely that Assassin's Creed was his only Doctrine.
"My Christian name," James said, a note of Irony in the words, "was given to me as Mary Read."
Realization dawned upon the Captain. That slight Build, those soft and elegant Features. The graceful manner of Motion, which Edward had attributed as some peculiar Effect of Assassin Training.
"You are a Woman then..." he held his voice down as other taverngoers passed by, knowing the keen Ears he addressed would have no Difficulty hearing, "...who has put on manly Guise to take up your chosen Calling."

InversionEdward struggles with his feelings for James Kidd, who has another secret besides that whole Assassin thing.Inversion by Atlantima
Takes place some undetermined time late in the Black Flag storyline.
AU where Sequence 5/Memory 3 and Sequence 11/Memory 1 never happened.
Captain Kenway had tried to tell himself this was not unusual. They were both Pirates, manning the same ship; it was only natural that they feel a certain Kinship. The lives of Pirates meant they had to stick close, for any man you didn't have Complete Trust in was hardly worth trusting at all.
But it had gradually become clear to the Captain that he felt more than mere Kinship and Trust toward this particular Crewman. It was more obvious every time he saw those marvelous Locks dripping with sea spray. Every time he was struck dumb by Kidd's Preternatural Skill with that Assassin Blade. Every time he spoke with the young Man, who seemed Wise beyond his years. Every time he glanced u
