TITLE: Tracing the line of Ascent (2/2)

CHARACTERS: Bush/Hornblower

RATING: PG

GENRE: Fluff – I promise, not even a hint of angst.

WORD: 4,280 (in two parts because I could not get LJ to accept it as one)

DISCLAIMER: Not mine; all owned by the esteemed Mr Forester and his estate and the like – long may they prosper.

Not betaed I am afraid as my poor beta draugdur is already weighted down by one of my rambling fics, not to mention all those real life things like exams and study. However, thanks are still due (though she may not be aware) for throwing down the gauntlet and daring me to try my hand at fluff! If there are any blinding mistakes then do please let me know.

 

SUMMARY: Book canon set sometime at the end of ‘Lieutenant Hornblower' during those famous ‘two wild days and two wild nights’ in Kingston. Bush and Hornblower go for a little climb.

Fic: A Few Glorious Seconds [Nov. 5th, 2009|12:11 am]
Better than a Wife

sarlania
TITLE: A Few Glorious Seconds
AUTHOR: sarlania
PAIRING: Hornblower/Bush
TYPE: Slash
RATING: NC-17
WARNING: Spoilers for Flying Colours
DISCLAIMER: Hornblower belongs to CS Forester. This is purely for my own enjoyable and I do not derive any profit from it whatsoever.
SUMMARY: I've always wanted to write a piece on the consequences of events in Flying Colours (which Bush fan doesn't have their own "version"?) and so this is mine. We all know how good Hornblower is at maintaining a blank mask and hiding his emotions, but in Flying Colours he is not the only one with demons.

Looking for a fic [Jul. 19th, 2009|11:28 pm]
Better than a Wife

Hello,

I am new to Hornblower and the yummy Bush but I've already gotten my hands on some fanfic. I'm looking for one where Bush has died and Horatio can't find Bush's leather satchel and gets upset. It ends with one of Shakespeare's sonnets. I think it might be by someone called William Chadler or something similar. Does anyone have the link by any chance? 

Thank you so much.

Huge thanks to Draugdur (and her AM) for advice and beta reading, though any inaccuracies and plain nonsense are all my very own. This piece partially inspired by our shared loved of strapping fellows in billowing shirts.
