Simpson fidgeted next to him.

The image, very clearly present in his mind, of Simpson's fist drawn back and then hurtling towards his own face, the resulting blossom of bright pain upon impact, and the inevitable swelling and dull throb that would make him so excruciatingly self-conscious, so horrifyingly pitied,

Could not,

Would not,

could not stop his hand from writing the correct answer.

That fist would never be more powerful than the truth.

[ profile] cortese mentioned something about the 'Scotch' story linked in the previous post, and that got us onto a chinwag about brevity, and the usual assessment that the haiku is my native habitat.

Then, silly me, I said the two words 'pornographic' and 'haiku'.

15 minutes later --

Two haiku, variations on a theme.

Spoilers: What, in a haiku? Even I would have to work a little at that. (No, wait, *squints for a moment*...yeah, I could do it. That wouldn't be hard, actually. It's all about word choice, baby.)

Dr Who 8/Sam - Hornblower crossover. 'bout 125 words.

"Sam! Welcome back!"

"What's with the hat?" Sam asked.

The Doctor tripped over himself and looked down at the floor, avoiding Sam's gaze. "Ought to fix that bump, there." He removed the hat and tucked it under his left arm. His hair was pulled back.

"I said, what's with the hat?"

"What hat?"

Sam crossed her arms. Very slowly, very obviously, she looked the Doctor up -- yummy as always -- and then down -- unchanged yumminess -- and spoke carefully. "What. Is. With. The. Hat?"

The Doctor reached for the hat under his arm and stared at it as if he'd never seen it before. "Nothing." The cheery, innocent smile hit her full force. "Nothing at all."

He wasn't wearing his usual outfit, either.

"OK, then what's with the uniform?"

regarding: Hornblower ("Mutiny")
starring: the four leftenants of HMS Renown

After the gun exercise:

The three leftenants gathered at the rail, grinning as one.

For just a moment, stress and strain were forgotten.

Buckland was happy because the crew was starting to come together.

Bush was happy to be doing the work God put him on earth to do, amongst men who felt the same.

Kennedy was happy because his spirit was always with others: if they were happy, he was happy.

The focus of their attention, one Horatio Hornblower, danced naked in the water and laughed.
