-So Mr. Bush, I trust you weren’t up all night getting the ship ready?-Not all night, sir, no.-Anything to report?-No sir, nothing. I trust you weren’t up all night either, sir?-…No Mr. Bush, I slept exceptionally well thank you. You will take her out, if you please. Plot a course for Brest.-Aye,Aye, sir.

In which subtlety is not a strong suit on the Hotspur.

"1st Lieutenant William Bush of HMS Hotspur"

I started drawing this little ACEO back in january last year. Yesterday I felt ready to finish it. Sometimes things take a wile. I’m very happy I went without hard/black lines in this one. It’s a gift for my dear Argendriel! She wrote me a heartbreaking little ficlet and this is my revenge :) I know I’m a year late …so sorry… Also: Yay bonus Horatio in the background ;)

can you recommend some hornblower fanfiction????

magsneto:

I haven’t read too many fics in the fandom, so anyone who wants to reply and add some feel free to.  The ones I have read though are really fantastic!  

  • Red Sky at Morning.  Honest to goodness one of the best fics I have read, in any fandom.  It’s really long, so give yourself a good amount of time to get through it.  
  • Ransom. This inevitably shows up on any rec list.  There are a few different versions, but the one I linked (the only one available online to my knowledge) is the gen version. 

*Fair warning for both the above fics, while neither are graphic, they could be triggery because it’s more than implied that Archie’s dealt with/dealing with assault. 

  • Strength and The Maelstrom  because it’s so damn hard finding any Archie/Bush fics, so when I do find them I will rec them to anyone who will listen
  • There are some great fics over at the Hornblower Fanfiction Archive 
  • This is also a comprehensive list here
  • This post helped me find some good ones.  Unfortunately, several are no longer available online. 
  • These I have seen reced by others and so I bookmarked them, but haven’t gotten around to reading yet: Salus; Full Fathom Five; Tutelage

If anyone wants to add some they think should be on here feel free to do so!
