    Summary

    “The thing speaks for itself.” That was the kind of bond the three of them had. Having been forged in the fires of stress, poverty, wild benders, library all-nighters, and panicked screaming, it was probably the strongest thing on earth.

    Summary

    “I beg your pardon, sir?”

    “A magician,” Rear Admiral Pellew said again, no less firmly than before, his intellectual brow beetled with concern which, Hornblower felt, was not all due to the muddled state of his favored subordinate. “He will join you on board Lydia for your foray into the Adriatic, Captain.”

    Summary

    They've only been roommates at King's College London a few weeks, but Horatio and Will are already having adventures on the high seas . . . or, rather, in Hyde Park's Round Pond. It's just them, a brisk January morning, and the Hotspur (their model ship).

    Oh, yes, and a swan.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    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.
