    Summary

    Vixens are the royal Navy's most dark and dirty secret. They are men appointed to satisfy the needs of other men at sea when there are no whores or women available. A shameful job. One full of difficulties. Henry Kiron Barry, is one of them. And so is William Bush...

    Summary

    It wasn't as though he thought Hornblower wasn't coming back. They'd spent a long time together, enough for Bush to know what his friend would want, even if he wasn't there to request it.

    Summary

    Not a coffee shop AU as such, but an AU that will eventually involve a coffee shop. Primarily it involves Bill Bush (longsuffering business analyst and massive extrovert), his flatmate Horatio Hornblower (neurotic programmer and massive introvert), and their desperate efforts to keep a dysfunctional software office afloat in the face of paranoid managers, incompetent interns, corporate espionage, and a shocking, shocking lack of decent coffee.

    A man named Pellew's come from the London branch with a new project to redeem their struggling crew. Marketing is calling it Project Hotspur....

    Summary

    It is generally known what happened the day Captain Hornblower said goodbye to his crew and to Hotspur. It is somewhat less well known what happened two days prior-- when he said goodbye to his first lieutenant and Hotspur on more intimate terms. (Or: in which Bush and Hornblower slide down the slippery slopes of sentiment.)

    Summary

    Usually it’s Hornblower who can’t shut his mind off, who balks at the darknesses his mind throws up to him. Today, on the Nonsuch, it’s his good solid Bush struggling with his hindbrain, and it’s up to Hornblower to take up the mantle of the wise sailor who knows that fantasies don’t change a man’s worth.

    It’s not so strange, after all, that a man who’s been repaired with a wooden limb already might imagine being refit even further.
