Title: Reunion
Fandom: Horatio Hornblower
Characters: Horatio, Archie
Prompt: 044 Bittersweet
Rating: G
Summary:Horatio finds Archie again, but all is not the same

He'd not thought it possible he would see Archie again. Gazing down at his friend now, Horatio could not help but be glad of it, even as he saw his friend in pain that he seemed to have caused. It puzzled him a little, worried him more. Seeing Archie like that, it stung him inside, though of course he would not show that here. Better then, to focus on the best part of the news, they had been brought together once again and this time he'd not be fool enough to lose Archie again. No matter what that outcome took.

Title: Reunion
Fandom: Horatio Hornblower
Characters: Horatio, Pellew
Prompt: 058 Dinner
Rating: G
Summary:Horatio feels out of place at a social event

Watching his captain holding court, Horatio found that he felt like a moron.
He was nothing so near as dashing that much was for certain, Instead he found himself...So awkward, he told himself, mentally reviewing everything so far as the meal was served. And then he found himself staring at the roast pig, then picking up the carving fork, preparing himself for humiliation. Tomorrow and its journey could not come soon enough, he thought, but forced himself to smile, though he wished he were somewhere else. Just let him get through this night. It was all he asked now.

Title: Good Coffee, Stong Coffee
Fandom: Horatio Hornblower
Characters: Horatio, Archie
Prompt: 060 Drink
Rating: PG
Summary:Some things are better than coffee

"You have got to be joking." Horatio frowned at the muddy looking mess in his cup and debating upending it over his friend's head. "You promised me the coffee here was drinkable." he hissed, not liking the glimmer of Archie's eyes. "This is the last time I let you pick the inn." he continued, but stopped again when Archie's smile turned into a smirk.
"Even though you liked the bed?" his friend enquired sweetly. Remembering last night, Horatio knew he was beaten, and picking up the dreadful coffee, settled for a sip. Maybe some things were worth it after all.
