    Summary

    Laurence has been looking forward to a relaxing retirement. He has everything he could want, a doting dragon, a satisfied lover, and a plethora of loyal friends. However, uneasiness encroaches on his paradise in the form of the ever increasing absence of his dearest friend. Tharkay's distance troubles him, and it doesn't help that he keeps turning down invitations to join him for dinner with Jane. He is determined to get to the bottom of it, but doesn't realize that his meddling will bring much more change than he is prepared for, and if doesn't rise to the challenge, he may lose his dear Tharkay forever.

    Summary

    Author's Summary: ‘It is no good asking me,’ Laurence said at last, pushing the pattern-book away over breakfast, ‘I am not the one–’ Not the one who would be living with the result, he had been about to say. But they had hardly accepted Tharkay’s invitation as casual houseguests.

    The fact that Granby is unsentimental doesn't mean that he does not take pains to preserve his human connections, whatever form they might take.

    Summary

    The London season of 1814 finds itself descended upon by a veritable horde of dragons--and their eligible captains. Shameless Regency trash.

    Summary

    Tharkay is the only one on the Reliant who is not already tied to a position, and so he is the one chosen to harness the dragonet when it hatches.

    (Or: the one where Tharkay is a reluctant aviator, and Laurence is an outcast wanderer.)

    Summary

    His dragon taken from him, William Laurence leaves the service with little more than a bitter grudge against aviators and his Majesty's government. Slave ships and traders learn to fear his black flag; port towns on the African coast and Portuguese Brazil tremble when they hear rumors of his presence. Yet, inexplicably, he begins to set his target on dragon transports-and one moonless night the Allegiance, bound for China, finds itself under raid.

    Summary

    There’s something that Laurence isn’t being told.

    It isn't obvious. Most of the aviators in the group are more than friendly with him, if somewhat awkward, and Temeraire is nearly guileless. But Laurence has been paying attention, and he can see how conversations abruptly change when he enters a room, how people pause before they speak to him, how both Tharkay and Captain Granby look profoundly uncomfortable whenever they are near him but refuse to leave his side.

    Summary

    “You are unsettled, still,” Tharkay says, quietly.

    “I hardly think that is the most relevant topic of conversation,” Laurence replies, because he can think of nothing else to say. “...But yes, I am.”

    Summary

    The war with France has been oddly quiet of late, which is good (though frustrating) news for Temeraire, newly-trained and just learning to patrol the English coast. Meanwhile Laurence meets an amnesiac Frenchman in Dover and takes advantage of the covert's idleness.

    Summary

    Laurence and Temeraire move in with Tharkay, and find that domestic life suits far better than Laurence expected, and how the life Laurence always pictured having isn't too far from what he has now.

    Also, there is some introspection, long slides of narrative, cut with long slides of dialogue, cut with occasional tangents, eventually ending in porn.

    Spoilers for League for Dragons.

    Summary

    Short collection of drabbles and moments within Tongue of Serpents, mostly having fun with Laurence being generally innocent and driving other people crazy.

    The genteel fiction of privacy upon a ship, indeed.

    Summary

    Laurence does not need, want, or particularly enjoy physical intimacy of any sort, and has very little idea as to why.

    Tharkay, meanwhile, finds himself growing increasingly frustrated as time goes on.
