Aubrey–Maturin series

On Solitude by Toft

'It was undoubtedly the fish that caused the thing, an ill-looking, mumchance creature served to them at a roadside tavern on the way to Portsmouth.' I don't often recommend accidental telepathic bond fic, but in Toft's capable hands the story deftly skirts clichÉ, always remains true to character & period, and slips effortlessly between comedy & profundity. Simply wonderful!
