    Summary

    Archie Kennedy has dreams. Sometimes Archie dreams about Horatio. Those dreams are the only time he can, for a little while at least, escape the Spanish prison that has held him for the last two years. Sometimes he dreams of Simpson and, when Archie has those dreams, he wakes up screaming.

    Tonight his screams woke Hornblower, who has given Archie a very tempting offer to help him get back to sleep.

    Summary

    “I need you to get in that boat, Archie,” he said softly but firmly in a voice that broke no argument. “We both know there’s no time to lose.”

    He was right, of course. Already Titanic was sitting at an unnatural angle in the cold Atlantic water – an angle that was getting steeper and steeper by the minute. And yet Archie couldn’t bring himself to step into the lifeboat, couldn’t force himself to leave, not after–

    “We promised to stay together,” he choked out. “Remember?”

    Whumptober Day 23: Self-Sacrifice - The night Titanic sinks, Archie is forced to leave Horatio behind.

    Whumptober Day 26: You will go down with this ship - Titanic sinks and Horatio and William are still on board.

    Whumptober Day 27: "I'm fine. I prom..." - Horatio and William get rescued.

    Summary

    Another shot imbedded itself into the Indy’s bow, a handsbreadth away from Archie’s wrist.

    “Please, Archie,” Horatio begged. “I don’t want you to get hurt.”

    Archie gritted his teeth and pulled harder on Horatio's hand. “I don’t care.”

    “But I do,” Horatio said, very softly.

    Whumptober Day 1: "You have to let go." - During a battle, Horatio gets taken prisoner. Archie doesn't take it well.

    Whumptober Day 4: "Do you trust me." - A rescue is planned and feelings come to light.

    Whumptober Day 19: Just a scratch - Horatio gets rescued.

    Summary

    Archie took in Horatio’s face – sickly pale except for the two bright spots of feverish colour high on his cheeks – and felt his throat close up. Horatio’s brows were furrowed in muted distress and his breaths came in shallow, wheezy gasps that sounded weak and painful. He seemed worse than he had yesterday when Archie had seen him last.

    “You have to hold on,” he choked out. “Do you hear me, Horatio? You have to fight.”

    Whumptober Day 12: Begging - Horatio falls ill.

    Summary

    Archie thought he could do this. He had believed, perhaps stupidly, that things would be different this time – better. Because this time it was Horatio and Horatio was different – better than any man Archie had ever known. He was kind and loving and always so very gentle in everything he did – the complete opposite of what Simpson had been – and Archie trusted him with both his life and his heart.

    And yet when Horatio leaned over him and let his fingertips slowly trail down his chest he couldn’t breathe.

    Whumptober Day 5: Misunderstanding - Archie and Horatio's first time comes to an abrupt end.

    Summary

    “Lay back down, you need to rest,” Styles said, reaching out to stop Captain Hornblower from sitting up. “Sir,” he added sheepishly when Mr. Hornblower raised one of his eyebrows rather pointedly at him.

    “I’m perfectly fine, Styles,” Mr. Hornblower insisted with a hint of annoyance. “The fever’s gone down this morning – as you well know since you were here when the doctor said as much.”

    When Horatio gets struck down by a fever, Archie is torn between his worries for his friend and running the ship.

    Summary

    “Promise me you’ll get on another boat, Horatio. Promise me.”

    Horatio swallowed hard. “I will do my best to try.”

    They both knew it was all he could offer without turning his words into a lie, and they both knew it was not enough. Archie’s face crumbled and before Horatio knew what was happening Archie’s hand left his chest and pulled him close.

    “I’ll come back for you,” Archie promised in a fierce whisper. “Whatever happens, I’ll come back. I’ll find you.”

    On April 15, 1912, the RMS Titanic sinks in the North Atlantic Ocean.

    Summary

    “I did not want to see you again so soon, Mr. Kennedy,” Death said – for that was who she was, Archie realized as she gently reached out to touch the back of his head, almost like a lover. Her fingers stilled over a particular area, just above his neck, and her face filled with regret. Instinct made him shy away from her touch even though it did not hurt. But it should. Something told him that it should hurt – he just couldn’t remember why.

    “What happened to me?” he asked, raising his own hand to touch the tender spot that echoed with pain that was no longer there.

    Death’s smile grew sad. “Someone hurt you.”

    Five times Archie Kennedy met Death and lived to tell the tale, and one time Death saved his life.

    Summary

    When Midshipman Hornblower sends a letter to his father about his time aboard the Justinian, he doesn't anticipate it being lost on the way and answered instead by a young midshipman from another vessel, one Archie Kennedy.

    A retelling of the events of the series exploring what would have happened if Archie and Horatio met over post before becoming shipmates. A ridiculous mix of book and TV canon (except when it's neither).
