All About...Wellard
by Natalie

NAME: Henry Wellard

LIVING ARRANGEMENT: I get the midshipmen's berth, but
since i'm the only midshipman on the Renown, there's
always plenty of room...

FAVORITE PASTIME: anything to keep my mind off the
pain!

FAVORITE BOOK: How to be Horatio Hornblower in 50
ways - so far i can't get much from it

THE BEST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: knowing that
Captain Sawyer is securely in that pretty white jacket
of his

THE WORST FEELING IN THE WORLD IS: Not remembering if
i did something or not. That and having Sawyer
anywhere in the vicinity and me with no pistol in my
hand

FAVORITE SMELLS: i suppose i should get used to the
smell in the sick berth. The fanfic writers seem to
have pegged me for it!

WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU THINK WHEN YOU WAKE IN THE
MORNING: dang, i KNEW i should've slept on my stomach!

BATTLE: SCARY OR EXCITING: How would I know? I'm
usually playing some sort of pistol game with the
captain. The last time, I even got to do it in his
cabin!

FAVORITE FOODS: these nice people sent me a package of
sweets called "brownies"...they're very good!

CHOCOLATE OR VANILLA: I'm not sure what either of
these are, but i've had some strangely-dressed women
come up to me and say i look like "chocolate"...so i
guess i'll be partial to that

STORMS, COOL OR SCARY: They were cool until that one
where the sailor fell on deck and splatted all over
me. You never enjoy events when you're heaving at the
same time

FAVORITE DRINK: Well, i'm kinda partial to
laudanum...

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THE WORLD, WHAT
WOULD IT BE: That the navy would change the
regulations and me, Hornblower, Bush, and Kennedy
could get our own ship and be pirates! argh...argh...
..... well, don't look at ME! the whole world WOULD
have to change for that to happen!

IF YOU COULD CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT YOURSELF, WHAT
WOULD IT BE: I'd get a tan

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN IN LOVE: Most girls seem to avoid
me - they tell me that i look like "jailbait"???

IS THE GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL: it varies with
the proximity of Captain Sawyer to me

WHAT'S IN YOUR ANXIETY CLOSET: that i'd remember that
*i* pushed the captain (I didn't, i swear!)...i'm also
vaguely anxious whenever i pass Randall; i'm afraid
he'll break into dance and that *one* time watching
him is enough to make ANYONE nervous. Don't tell
anyone though; the other men seemed to enjoy it. Hmm.

WHAT'S YOUR LOFTIEST DREAM: That Sawyer would get up
in front of a court-martial and sing "Spanish Ladies".
Those bloody captains better believe us then!!!

WHAT'S YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE: waking up in a ship
filled with strangely-dressed women with huge
"BEWB-ies" badges pinned on. I don't want to know
what THAT means! Would you believe i actually *have*
had that nightmare? Hope it's the laudanum...

WHAT DO YOU WISH PEOPLE KNEW ABOUT YOU THAT YOU FEEL
THEY DON'T: that I AM capable of being a very good
officer...they killed me off way before i could prove
it. Oh, and ladies, I'm LEGAL...

WHAT OTHER HH CHARACTER WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ANSWER
THIS QUESTIONNAIRE: how about Mr. Kennedy's "friend"
from the tower? That guy seems to know how to enjoy
life...
