    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

    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

    An objective observer might have said the band would never make it big with a lead singer like Hornblower, who had never yet managed to carry a tune successfully. They didn't have any objective observers, though.

    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....
