Trying a different colouring style. Couldn’t quite decide whether I should draw Eight or Bush, so I’m just gonna go with the “William Bush is secretly the Eighth Doctor with amnesia” AU, so I can have both.
I think I finally found the fandom with the perfect ship
Midshipman Hornblower was walking the lee side of the quarterdeck, as became his lowly station as the junior officer of the watch, in the afternoon, when Midshipman Kennedy approached him. Kennedy took off his hat with a flourish and bowed low as his dancing master had once taught him, left foot advanced, hat down by his right knee. Hornblower entered into the spirit of the game, laid his hat against his stomach, and bent himself in the middle three times in quick succession. Thanks to his physical awkwardness he could parody ceremonial solemnity almost without trying.
"Most grave and revered signor," said Kennedy. "I bear the compliments of Captain Sir Ed’ard Pellew, who humbly solicits Your Gravity’s attendance at dinner at eight bells in the afternoon watch."
"My respects to Sir Edward," replied Hornblower, bowing to his knees at the mention of the name, "and I shall condescend to make a brief appearance."
"I am sure the captain will be both relieved and delighted," said Kennedy. "I will convey him my felicitations along with your most flattering acceptance."
Both hats flourished with even greater elaboration than before, but at that moment both young men noticed Mr. Bolton, the officer of the watch, looking at them from the windward side, and they hurriedly put their hats on and assumed attitudes more consonant with the dignity of officers holding their warrants from King George."
Mr. Midshipman Hornblower, C.S. Forester

Hornblower Meme: Three Episodes [1/3]You have fought your duel. That is well. Never fight another. That is better.
I love how Archie kinda seems like the little drama queen, but as you get to know the characters better, it’s actually hornblower
Because who doesn’t need a gif of Paul McGann in jail claiming “It must be done!”? … what is “it”? Whatever you want it to be! o___o
