    Summary

    He’s long wanted to try on, perhaps, a different face, a different self, and having been lucky enough to come by a spare day on shore, and a trunk of half-forgotten clothing, he might come to realize that imagining today.

    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

    Bush's grip on the infant is awkward but firm – he has memory enough of two younger sisters to have no fear of dropping her, but there is something intensely embarrassing about holding his captain’s child. It is like holding a piece of Hornblower’s heart, something naked and intimate that he can’t help but feel he has no right to see or touch.
