The Horatio Hornblower Questionnaire: All About.... Captain Sawyer
By Derry

NAME: James Sawyer

LIVING ARRANGEMENT: Captain's cabin HMS Renown spend quite
a bit of time there actually tied up with various affairs

FAVORITE PASTIME: We'll rank and we'll roar like true
British sailors! We'll rank and we'll roar...

FAVORITE BOOK: The Articles of War and the penalty shall be
death!

THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Realising your hands are still
there when they take the strait-jacket off

THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Watching them conspiring against
their lawful captain sneaking around, whispering in corners
the arrogant young whelps!

FAVORITE SMELLS: The smoke of battle

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK WHEN YOU WAKE IN THE MORNING: So,
still tied up in this chair then...

BATTLE: SCARY OR EXCITING: What is all this lily-livered nonsense?
Battles are our duty man! They're the real test of a man! Keep
you on your toes! Keep you sharp! You've obviously never seen
action in your life! What's that you say? Retreat? No! Never!
We're going to stand our ground! I want to fight! ...

FAVORITE FOODS: Roasted midshipman?

CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA: Those are those bean things, aren't they?

STORMS, COOL OR SCARY: I told you! My standing orders are to inform
me *BEFORE* shortening sail!

FAVORITE DRINK: Dr Clive has this bitter-tasting milky-looking
concoction which is very soothing

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THE WORLD, WHAT WOULD IT BE: I
wouldn't be surrounded by ineffectual aging clowns and ambitious
conniving young upstarts who are continually trying to undermine my
authority.

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT WOULD IT BE: Not
to grow old. The young don't understand. Never grow old.
It's not worth the price you pay.

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE: That's a rather personal question!
What's it to you? Ah, I see looking for information to use
against me. You're part of this conspiracy too!

IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL: After I've finished with a
glass it's completely empty. I don't leave anything
half-done, man! Buckland's glass is bloody overflowing and
he still couldn't sail a yacht down the Thames! Man's a complete
fool!

WHAT'S IN YOUR ANXIETY CLOSET: What fool keeps anxiety in a closet?
The damn thing is for clothes, man! Are you quite right in the head?

WHAT'S YOUR LOFTIEST DREAM: To die well with honour.

WHAT'S YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE: I'm living it right now, thank you
very much!

WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU THAT YOU FEEL THEY DON'T: Too
many people already think that they know far too much about me! But
they don't. They don't know...

WHAT OTHER HH CHARACTER WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ANSWER THIS
QUESTIONNAIRE: Get all my lieutenants in here to answer it!
That's an order! I *will* know what they are plotting... I will
catch them at it...
