Quote snatching (2)
“Those [windows] were now curtained, and the sun came in around the curtains as they swayed gently with the ship’s motion. Most captains curtained - and furnished - their cabins with gay chintz, or even, if wealthy, with damask, but these curtains were of sailcloth. They were the finest Number 8 sailcloth to be found in the ship, and had only hung there for the last two days. Hornblower thought about this pleasantly, for they had been a present to him from the wardroom; Bush and Prowse, and the surgeon, Wallis, and the purser, Huffnell, had made the presentation after a mysterious request from Bush that they should be allowed to enter his cabin for a moment in his absence. Hornblower had returned to the cabin to find the deputation there and the cabin transformed. There were curtains and cushions - stuffed with oakum - and a coverlet, all gay with red and blue roses and green leaves painted on with ship’s paint by some unknown artist in the ship’s company. Hornblower had looked round in astonishment that made it impossible to conceal his pleasure.”

I’m so glad I don’t have to type up this quote. (Thanks my-hearts-require-tea)
This is the remake of the messed up comic I tired to watercolor earlier this week. Anyways after gushing about this scene to by bestie Kate and her boyfirend she thought it would be hilarious if Bush made Horatio and sexy pillow. I did too.
OH MY GOD CAN I HAVE THAT PILLOW
Not my best work but I still like it.
CAN WE TALK ABOUT BUSH’S POUT.
Your daily dose of Withnail & I angst by yours truly because my brain decided I don’t need to be happy anymore
