    Summary

    ..The next thing he knows, Bush is having his shouder sniffled into. It seems that Horatio has every limb coiled around him, like a very distressed octopus. Absent-mindedly, William runs a hand through Horatio's curls.
    "I'm sorry, I'm so sorry," the shoulder gets wet immediately.
    "Shush. It's not your fault," a pair of teary eyes stares at Bush in disbelief. "Coffee's in the kitchen."

    Summary

    The rules

    1: Pick five fandoms. List them in alphabetical order.

    2: Visit this site to find your first RANDOM POEM OF POWER. Write down the 5th line (yes, even if it's an E.E. Cummings poem and you wind up with an apostrophe). Repeat five times and - you guessed it - list 'em in alphabetical order! (No cheating, mind! This is a challenge and it's always been about creativity.)

    3: I think you can see where this is going. Write a very quick 50-word half-drabble for each fandom (try to do it all in one sitting - make your brain explode!), using the line from the poem as a prompt. You don't have to include it in the half-drabble - it's just inspiration.

    4: Bravo! Have a cookie.

    Summary

    It was by a hurried last minute reading up that Bush had been able to pass his examination for lieutenant, although it was seamanship and not navigation that got him through

    Summary

    The ship wasn't rocking the way Bush had become accustomed to; she lingered and shuddered, but not enough to swing the hammocks. He felt aware of the wide space around them, could almost hear it behind the slow creaks of the timber.

    He wasn't sure what something being unnatural meant. It didn't feel good, that was what he did know.

    Summary

    Nature laid out the sea as a trap for the greedy.

     

    The first proper kiss, the one which made him feel like heat had been poured through his insides, that had been later, at sea. That had been in the dark below decks, his coat wet, rain still slipping down his wrists. That had been Archie.

    Summary

    Stepping into his office, frowning at the poorly joined floor boards, Bush wonders if Cotard has been to Smallbridge, or is on his way there now. He doesn't know why else a French soldier might travel this way.

    Summary

    1. It is a Tuesday. The fourteenth of the month, 1812. The airs off the sea were strong and fresh as Bush passed through the dockyard early this morning, yet inside it is as still as a grave.

    Summary

    A follow-up to my "Windfalls" fic. It features scenes from Amelia and Horatio's life, some fluffy, some sexy, some slightly dark. But through it all, they remain the same slightly oddball couple they've always been. Complete, but will be updated on occasion as I get bit by plot bunnies.
