    Summary

    They both live utterly unvarying lives: Tharkay's consists of doing mildly to flagrantly illegal things; Will's - of brushing his hair and trying not to die of boredom in his tower.

    Everything changes when one day Tharkay poorly chooses a hideout and things get much more tangled.

    Summary

    Continuing the silliness of “One for the Corps” (sorry)
    As one clever person once said, there are two things children should get from their parents: roots and wings. But if the wings part means you have a dragon to hand on, things are bound to become a little more complicated...
    So in 1838, the next generation proudly uphold the Laurence-Rankin feud, HMS Temeraire doesn’t quite get tugged to her last berth, HMD Temeraire almost gets through two captains in three days, and Ning wreaks havoc in China.

    Summary

    “He said to dress up nicely, Laurence,” Granby responded, frustration evident in his tone, “How am I supposed to dress nicely if I can’t even tie a damned simple Windsor?”

    Long before William Laurence lost his memory, before treason, and exile, and journeys across the face of the world, John Granby loved him.

    Summary

    “There’s feral’s in those woods” said the bartender as he leant towards Tharkay, “And a beast.”

    “A beast” tharkay deadpanned.

    “Aye, some sorta’ creature, part man part dragon. I think it’s total horseshit, but you never know. Keep your doors locked mm?” The bartender’s face broke into a grin, he chuckled and nudged Thakay’s arm before turning away and retreating down the bar towards another patron. Tharkay looked to his glass.

    “I’ll keep them locked...” He muttered. He paid, downed his drink, and left.

    what happens when a man trying to enjoy his retirement becomes involved in the lives of feral dragons, and who is this strange man living with them

    Summary

    The cat is more slender than scrawny, and while he has a few scars, he’s well-groomed. There’s no collar, but when Tenzing mentions to the man working the front desk at his motel that he’s found a cat, he immediately gets a positive ID, so it’s a moot point regardless.

    “Little slip of a tortie, missing one eye?” the man asks, grinning a little. When Tenzing nods, slowly raising one eyebrow, he’s met with a shrug and, “Take him up to the lighthouse, or else let him go and he’ll find his own way back eventually. He belongs to the Captain.”

    Or, William Laurence has a lighthouse and a cat with a bad habit of running away; Tenzing Tharkay never meant to stick around, but he seems to have forgotten to leave.

    Summary

    Drabbles and short stories about Laurence, Temeraire, and the flying peanut gallery that is Britain's Aerial Corp. Basically practice drafts until I can work up the nerve to write a full length story. Ratings will vary per chapter.

    Summary

    Life in the Peak district takes a fresh turn when Jane makes an announcement. Laurence is mortified, Lady Allendale delighted, the Corps love the gossip, Temeraire battles jealousy, and Tharkay just wants to read his newspaper (because as we know, all infants look alike).

    Summary

    Captain Laurence had proudly served in the navy from the age of 18. Starting out as a navy pilot only to make his way to the captain of an aircraft carrier, things seemed to be going Laurence's way, even with the war not going quite to plan. That is until a precious piece of cargo is found in the recently captured Amitié's hold. A dragon's egg which might just change everything.

    A modern AU where the dragons are still dragons and the people are people and there is still a war going on.

    Summary

    The lifeguard!AU: When Laurence encounters Temeraire, he is forced to leave the sea and his chosen profession. At his new posting he fumbles his way from faux-pas to au fait under the resentful gaze of Granby. Roland is amused, Rankin a jerk, and Tharkay lurks suspiciously. 

    So basically canon, then.

    Summary

    Granby thinks he could have shot Barham and Admiral Lenton would have defended his decision, however unsuccessfully. He half-wishes he’d done it, except that Laurence would have fussed something horrible and probably taken responsibility for that too.

    Summary

    "A present," Temeraire repeated. "The white stag. To...show our appreciation of him as our host."

    "That seems very foolish."

    Temeraire sniffed. "I would not want people to think my host did not have enough things, or sufficiently fine ones."

    "Oh, very well," grumbled Iskierka, sounding disgruntled in her turn. "I suppose you are right. I will have to join you."

    "No you will not!"

    "I will; you are right; there is nothing else for it."

    Or: Temeraire and Iskierka discover (something adjacent to) the true meaning of Christmas.
