    Summary

    Erotic conversation between Bush and Hornblower leads to hot naval action. This story is an alternate ending to Lieutenant Hornblower, in which Hornblower invites his comrade-in-arms (and only friend in the world) Lt. Bush to share his lodging in Highbury Street. The last chapter is filled with slashy innuendo, longing gazes, and heartfelt emotion. Due to various circumstances, the two men don't actually spend the night together, but I imagined what would happen if they did. The story takes place in the novel-verse, though I was inspired by the actors who played the characters in the A&E series - Ioan Gruffudd as Hornblower and Paul McGann as Bush.

    Summary

    In which Jack doesn't find the courage to confess his love at graduation and Bitty only complicates things by becoming the first out player in the NHL.

    ________

    In the end, it’s pretty anticlimactic. The Falcs are defending divisional champions and the Schooners are coming out of an extremely rough rebuild year with the third worst record in the league. Providence pulls out a 3-1 win in regulation, the only Seattle goal belonging to Eric; a gorgeous snipe in the third that had Jack reflexively cheering from the Falconers bench — something Jack knows immediately will be a highlight more vaulted than the goal itself.

    At the end of regulation, Jack hangs back to catch Bittle before he's ushered off the ice, pulling him into a tight hug that makes the remaining Schooners fans go wild. “Good game, Bits,” he knocks his helmet against Bittle’s and tries to ignore the immediate camera flashes. This was always the plan: two marketing departments eager to dominate the news cycle; It isn't hard to fake enthusiasm because right now Eric Bittle is a perfect amalgamation of Jack’s two favorite things in the whole world: hockey and handsome blondes.

    “Great game, Jack,” Bitty laughs.
