    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.

    Summary

    Years ago, then-Midshipman Bush brought a couple of embarrassing souvenirs back from shore leave. He's used to them and used to concealing them, and doesn’t think of them much, except when the weather turns cold. One night on Hotspur, Captain Hornblower discovers what he’s been hiding.

    The good captain is not actually displeased.
