    Summary

    "What are you afraid of?" a simple question holding a simple answer, so why isn't it ever that easy?

    "Why don't you tell me?" I expected him to leave it, to let the questions linger in air untouched, surrounded in chaos.

    "You. I'm afraid of you," I had to scoff, what does the deadliest predator on Eldora need to fear from me. A woman scorned.

    "You can rip my heart out in mere seconds, and I'd be powerless to stop you," his words didn't waver when he spoke his next words, pale eyes boring into violet.

    "And you can destroy me, in a few words."
    ._.

    Eldora. Woven together by magic. Cloaked in darkness and chaos, sin and deceit. Where no one is innocent; where both hands - and teeth - drip with the blood of another.

    Then there's her.

    A lone wolf, watching the world tear itself apart. Watching the chaos, the death, the destruction as she fights a far greater war, within her. What's right and wrong? What's considered good and evil?

    Where does she stand in this enteral mystery, we call a universe?

    Coated in darkness and pain, she questions the meaning of life and death. Her purpose in this world of infinite possibilities and finds only one answer.

    Revenge.

    Summary

    Following the declaration that he is to be a father, Hornblower struggles to remain focussed whilst back as the captain of the Hotspur. He confides in his closest friend and admits a few things to him following a disaster that leaves the Hotspur sinking - literally.

    Horatio is HOOKED. Hooked on love; a feeling that he is very unfamiliar with. And he must learn to come to terms with that feeling. And so must Bush.

    Note: this is obviously not canon compliant but follows off where the TV series finishes. Hotspur Husbands centric.

    Summary

    “I beg your pardon, sir?”

    “A magician,” Rear Admiral Pellew said again, no less firmly than before, his intellectual brow beetled with concern which, Hornblower felt, was not all due to the muddled state of his favored subordinate. “He will join you on board Lydia for your foray into the Adriatic, Captain.”

    Summary

    All Horatio wanted from his internship at the National Maritime Museum’s special collections was some time alone with the Nelson-era naval manuscripts. He didn’t expect to fall in love with one of the library patrons, an exuberant, confident actor about to make his film debut in a Napoleonic naval period piece.

    All Archie wanted was to leave the nightmare of RADA and Simpson far behind, and to start preparing for the role that would change his life. The last thing he expected was to fall for an adorably gangly, socially awkward naval history nerd who worked the special collections desk.

    But how do you navigate a new relationship when the past won’t stay in the past?

    Summary

    "My collection of M's is a fine one," said he. "Moriarty himself is enough to make any letter illustrious, and here is Morgan the poisoner, and Merridew of abominable memory, and Mathews, who knocked out my left canine in the waiting-room at Charing Cross…”
