I've always loved the way Archie quotes Shakespeare throughout the movies, and decided to write a fic in which our navy boys are brought together by a Shakespeare wager.
This is definitely the longest fanfic I've written, and since it's 7 chapters, I'll just post the summary, pairing, and link here.
Title: Much Ado About Shakespeare: Love’s Labours Won
Pairing: Horatio Hornblower/Archie Kennedy
Summary: Archie’s devotion to Shakespeare leads Horatio to propose a bet. The stakes are higher than either of them realize. Puns! Panic attacks! Confessions! And, of course, the Bard.
I hope you enjoy it! Thanks for welcoming me into the fandom!
