All About Bush
by Lady Laura

The Horatio Hornblower questionnaire

NAME: William Bush

LIVING ARRANGEMENT: small cabin on the Renown, next to acting captain Buckland

FAVORITE PASTIME: Going for walks on a ship, on land, in the woods. It helps calm me down then things go bad

FAVORITE BOOK: The Burning, anything that has Doctor Who in it.

THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Knowing we have done our duty, taking the fort into our hands, accumulating 3 Spanish ships, and a hell of alot of prisoners.

THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Ending up with another Captain Sawyer, and a useless first lieutenant.

FAVORITE SMELLS: The salty breeze when we're out to sea.

WHAT'S THE FIRST THING YOU THINK WHEN YOU WAKE IN THE MORNING? Did Buckland get so drunk off his ass and not notice the Spanish prisoners escaping AGAIN?!

BATTLE: SCARY OR EXCITING: Exciting, except for when I get hurt.

FAVORITE FOODS: Anything except turnips! I absolutely can't stand them!

CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA: Chocolate. I cannot stand the sight or smell of vanilla.

STORMS, COOL OR SCARY: Cool, except when I have to order the ratings onto the yardarm to shorten sail. My heart is in my throat for those poor souls!

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING IN THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I would make absolutely certain that a captain is not mad when they get their own ship!

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT BE: I'd trust the judgements of the junior officers when I first come aboard. It can't be easy for them to get along with a new officer.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE? There was Dr. Grace Holloway, but I had to leave her. I gave her the option of coming with me, but she decided to stay where she was. Other than that, no.

IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL: The glass is two-thirds full, and Buckland is raiding out spirit supply! f***-ing bastard!

WHAT'S IN YOUR ANXIETY CLOSET: Being assigned to the HMS Dreadnaught or Calypso with Black Charlie Hammond. What is that guy's problem anyway?

WHAT'S YOUR LOFTIEST DREAM: Hornblower and I working together as admirals

WHAT'S YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE: The next movie in production is going to want me to play Hitler.

WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU THAT YOU FEEL THEY DON'T: I'm really not as slow as some people think I am.

WHAT OTHER HH CHARACTER WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ANSWER THIS QUESTIONNAIRE: Let's see what Horatio has on his mind.
