25. Handkerchief
(Horatio Hornblower, Horatio & Bush)

Hitchoo!

His cold wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t so windy on deck.

hih-hihtchhoo!

Or if he hadn’t had to jump into the water to fish out the admiral’s orders.

hihh-ihh-ihhh-HIHShoo!

Or if he had remembered to bring an extra handkerchief.

Horatio sniffed miserably, feeling eternally, ceaselessly sneezy no matter how he rubbed at his nose. “ihh-HIhhh!” His mouth hung open with need.

“Here.” At that moment, Horatio wouldn’t have cared if it were Napoleon himself offering a handkerchief. Horatio grabbed it and blew his nose thrice before lifting his head and thanking Lieutenant Bush with a grateful smile.

6. Light
(Horatio Hornblower, Horatio)

“Over here, Sir!”

On watch, Horatio hurried over to the bow where someone beckoned him. “What is it?”

“Light, Sir!” Turning, the lantern in hand illuminated Styles’ face and caught Horatio’s eyes.

The light caused an urgent prickle in Horatio’s nose. “hitchoo!” He touched one gloved hand to his nose and used his other to lower the lantern.

“Sorry, Sir. But I swear I seen something just ahead.”

Horatio narrowed his eyes. A steady dot of light was there one second and gone the next. “Lighthouse,” Horatio said. “Land!” He turned to Styles with more urgency. “Better wake the captain.”

I hope you can forgive when & where I set this fic. It comes a little earlier than what you prompted. I just couldn't resist the extra misery and torture--sorry! I hope you like it anyway!! I can't wait to read all the fics you've been posting; I haven't had a chance to yet as I'm not done writing giftfics yet, but they are calling my name. Hope you have an amazing year, and thanks for supporting me in my fundraising this past year. It means a lot.

wig_powder, I hope you don't mind that it's a little short (all my fics this year came out to be about four pages, this one included). And I certainly hope that it was worth waiting a year for! :-) I apologize for any/all errors this might contain. It's virtually unedited; I just don't have the energy/ability right now. But, luckily, it's done. And I hope you like it! Have a wonderful Christmas and happy writing for 2014! :-) *warm hugs*

I wrote this one a little quickly, I'm afraid, so I apologize for any weirdness/errors you may encounter while reading it. That being said, it gave me some trouble (the plot just did NOT want to show up... it was possibly home sick) but ultimately it was a fun one to write. I do love Archie & Horatio so much :-) I hope that you enjoy it just as much! Take care and best of luck to you in the new year!

I thought long and hard about this one, trying to figure out how I might go about placing Hornblower in this most unfortunate of situations. I hope you approve of the way it played out! Have a wonderful rest of the year... and lots of wonderful moments to come in the new one!

The bunny you gave me was just so incredibly good. I hope my stab at it isn't a total failure. I'm not entirely happy with this effort, but it did make me re-watch the Duel again, so not a complete loss ;-) It's great to have another reason to write Horatio & Archie, though--thanks! I hope your 2011 is a great one!

I tried to use three different timelines to figure Pellew's career out, but in the end I had to say 'screw it' and just hope that he was an Admiral at this point in the timeline *crosses fingers* I hope I didn't get anything else in canon wrong; certainly let me know if I did so I can fix it right away. I must admit I wrote thing during NaNoWriMo so it's a little long-winded, but I usually write that way when I write Hornblower fics anyway. Please excuse any errors, though; it's not well edited. And now, after a paragraph of excuses for the possibly poor writing, I do hope you enjoy this and that it's close enough to what you were hoping for! Have a fantastic holiday season! :-)

Summary: Bush finds Hornblower sick, but that’s not the only thing he has to worry about.
Notes: Happy incredibly belated holidays, snowshie!

Story: http://tgsrealm.beastlet.com/stories/Gift07snowshie.html

An image of Horatio sitting on his cot and sneezing popped into my head while I was driving to work today. I used my lunch break to start writing it, and I couldn't do anything else until it came out! I've set it during Hotspur, some time around chapters 14-16. Hopefully I didn't step on canon too very much this time. Had a lot of fun writing it, though. Horatio's just sooooo nummy when he's miserable :-) I'm so VERY sorry that it's already August and I'm still churning out giftfics. *headdesk* But I hope this meets with your approval, snowshie, and have a great rest of the year!

Title: 2005 Gift for GWT

Fandom: Horatio Hornblower
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: These characters and their world are not mine. I’ve no rights and no money.
Summary: A bit of Horatio-torture… though some of it is self-inflicted because Horatio is a bit hard on himself as he tries to make things right for his men after an incident.
Notes: Written as a gift fic for girlwithtulips during the 2005 holiday season.

Story: 2005 Gift for GWT

Sorry for this being so late!! I'm a little nervous about it... so I hope it turned out to your liking (whenever you get a chance to read it). I think it's pretty far-fetched but maybe everyone will be sweet and overlook that? heehee Hope all is going well with you! :-)
tarotgal: (H/C- Inuyasha)
This fic went a bit longer than it should, even though the battle scene is WAAAAAAAY too short. Hopefully it still works all right and isn't too random. I never feel like I do the fandom justice... but I hadn't written a sneezing!Horatio yet, so I took this as an opportunity to do so. Hope it's okay!

tarotgal: (H/C- Inuyasha)
Okay, so here's the story behind this one. I had the idea for this fic the day it was suggested. But then I realized the comment said "gen or het". Shoot. So I tried to redo it with a Horatio/Maria bit but it sooooo didn't work the same way. Though there was a smashing scene that involved Horatio standing on deck, frequently taking off his gloves to rub at a runny nose, and then putting his gloves back on. Anyway, when GWT said she'd meant "gen or slash" I was relieved and tried to reimagine it in my head again to go back to where it had been in the first place... but I couldn't make it work. THUS, it's turned out to be both het(in a canon sort of way) and slash (in an 'inspired by the DVD commentary' sort of way). Hopefully it makes sense and works okay with the theme.

Summary: A ficlet/drabble wherein Horatio is ill one morning and William is attentive
Notes: Dedicated to girlwithtulips. As I’m struggling to finish up her now quite late holiday giftfic I thought this might help tide her over a little at least. I don’t think this fits properly anywhere in canon, so I apologize. It just stuck in my head and, as GWT’s giftfic is set before Bush comes onto the scene, I thought it might be nice to get this out of my head.
