All About Archie
by Sue N.
> The Horatio Hornblower Quiestionnaire: All About....?
> NAME: Lieutenant Archibald Kennedy. But, please, call me
> LIVING ARRANGEMENT: Dark, cramped little cabin on His Britannic
frigate Indefatigable. Almost feels like home...
> FAVORITE PASTIME: Reading, teasing Horatio, gunnery practice
> FAVORITE BOOK: Shakespeare's sonnets
> THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Knowing I have good comrades,
who believe in me and trust that I shall not let them down
> THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Letting them down.
> FAVORITE SMELLS: The salt air, gunpowder, Lucy Addington's
> WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK WHEN YOU WAKE IN THE MORNING:
let me disappoint anyone today.
> BATTLE: SCARY OR EXCITING: Both. Early on, I thought it only
great, glorious adventure. But with experience, I came to see
that it was also
an ugly, dangerous business that could get any one or all of us
because I know it must be done, and because I know I sail on the
best ship with
the best crew and the best captain in the Navy, I am able to swallow
and do my duty. And, as I know all too well, there are far worse
> FAVORITE FOODS: Roast beef or pork, fresh potatoes in fresh
bread with marmalade, fresh vegetables. In short, anything that
has not already
spent three months in a barrel
> CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA: Chocolate.
> STORMS, COOL OR SCARY: Well, a mild storm at sea might be
exciting, but a
full gale, with all the winds, heavy seas and torrential winds...
No sailor in
his right mind would consider these anything less than terrifying.
> FAVORITE DRINK: Coffee, good brandy, a fine, aged port
> IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD
IT BE: That tyrants
and bullies should not be able to inflict their evil upon those
too weak or
helpless to fight back.
> IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT
BE: I would stop
having those damned fits!
> HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE: Well, there is this young lady
> IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL: Usually half full,
now, though often in
the past I would have sworn there was nothing in it at all.
> WHAT'S IN YOUR ANXIETY CLOSET: A past too terrible to contemplate.
> WHAT'S YOUR LOFTIEST DREAM: To be as good a man and as good
an officer as
> WHAT'S YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE: To fail at this as I've failed
at so many other
> WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU THAT YOU FEEL THEY
DON'T: That I am
learning to be strong and to believe in myself, and have grown
to love being an
officer in His Majesty's Navy.
> WHAT OTHER HH CHARACTER WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ANSWER THIS
Styles. There is much more to him than meets the eye!
