    Summary

    Inspired by Graintaire’s Tumblr post (http://bbcphile.tumblr.com/post/134066814141/graintaire-watching-loyalty-and-duty-while): “Watching Loyalty and Duty while pretending Archie’s ghost is haunting/cackling at Horatio makes watching those movies a bit easier.”

    Setting: The afterlife. The ghosts of Archie Kennedy and Henry Wellard are watching the events of Loyalty. Archie has a blanket over his lap and a rapidly cooling dish of tea forgotten in front of him.

    Authors’ Note: This story repeatedly and deliberately juxtaposes period-specific language with anachronisms for humorous effect. You have been warned.

    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

    A series of oneshots centered around different characters from the Horatio Hornblower miniseries. Strong focus on relationships, romantic and otherwise, and not always Horatio-centric.

    So far: Pellew, Bush, Kennedy.
    Upcoming: Wellard, Stiles, ?

    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 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

    So far out from the coast there are no landmarks to be had, and to Côtard it feels vaguely like dreaming. There is only the rail to grip, only floating boards beneath his boots, and were the ship to turn, he would not know in which direction lay home.

    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

    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.
