I set to reading all posts in this community back when I first discovered Hornblower (and Mr. Bush), but only now I've realised I could actually contribute, as well. 

So behind the cut, a lot of drawings I've made in the time I've been fangirling. Mostly Bush/Hornblower, mostly sfw but I don't want anyone losing their job so tread carefully.

FIC: "Highbury Street" NC-17 Hornblower/Bush, Bush/original female character [Nov. 12th, 2012|01:04 pm]
Better than a Wife


I am a first-time poster and hope you will enjoy this Hornblower slash fiction I wrote, which contains a fair amount of heterosexual activity. Adults only, please!

Title: Highbury Street
Author: missviolet
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6,000
Pairing: Hornblower/Bush, Bush/original female character
Warnings: PWP, heterosexual and homosexual acts, mild spoilers for Lt. Hornblower
Disclaimer: All characters belong to C.S. Forester, A&E, et. al. No infringement or disrespect intended.
Summary/Notes: 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.

Hornblower Remix Challenge [Feb. 10th, 2011|02:37 pm]
Better than a Wife

Announcing the following_sea Hornblower Remix Challenge! Because Mr Bush deserves to play too...

What is a Remix?

In this ficathon, you will take a fanwork produced by somebody else and re-imagine it. You might change the POV, mood or dialogue, or you might turn a fic into a poem, fanvid or piece of art. Or vice versa, perhaps that fanvid might inspire you to write a story? You should keep the basic plot and pairing of the original though; otherwise, you're writing a new story, not remixing. The idea is to creatively play in your partner's "canon" to expose some new perspective in their work, while still respecting the basics of the original.

For example if an author wrote a fic from Horatio's perspective where Horatio, Archie, and Bush went on a mission, you could rewrite it from Bush's point of view, which should be very different from Horatio's. Just compare Lieutenant Hornblower to Hornblower and the Hotspur!

How does it work?

Sign up at the hornblowerremix comm sign up post here and tell us where to find your fics, art or videos along with any preferences or restrictions you may have. We will assign each of you to remix the work of another participant. You then look at that person's body of work and select one piece to remix. These remixed versions will be posted to the comm on the deadline day.

Sounds great! When's the deadline?

If you'd like to play please sign up on the comm by the 28th of February and we will assign a partner for you to remix by the 14th of March. The deadline for contributions to be submitted is the 4th of July. If you have any quesitons or queries about this challenge please don't hesitate to contact mylodon or anteros_lmc

Here's looking forward to some fabulous remixes!

Cross posted to anything_aos, following_sea and various other comms. Also many thanks to nolivingman who wrote the original remix guidelines.

Haven't been painting for so long, so it didn't come out exactly Paul McGannish, but I just hope Bush is there somewhere...

(at one point it looked more like Ben Stiller - who looks nothing like McGann I know - but I decided to continue if nothing else than for practise...)

Screencaps! [Jul. 6th, 2010|12:09 am]
Better than a Wife

I don't know if it's allowed in posting these here.
If not just say so and I will delete the entire post.
I got lazy and made these it's not the whole episode only the first half an hour.
I noticed that there aren't many screencaps of Hornblower let's not talk about Bush or Cotard.
You can use these to make icons, graphics I don't care just be kind to credit me.
