    Of course Harry had thought about it, how cool it would've been to be able to transform into a dragon, but… not like this.

    Summary

    Two dragons create a scandal in Britain, life with Tharkay is wonderful – and also a bit scandalous – and Laurence is apparently destined to be a political symbol for the rest of his life. What kind of symbol, though, is debatable.

    Summary

    Captain Laurence of the Amitié has been spying on the French for years. Nothing in his experience prepares him for the possibility of becoming captain to a Chinese Celestial – a dragon meant for the French Emperor – and certainly not for the subsequent attention this provokes when he is, therefore, the only person capable of negotiating with China.

    Summary

    Here is the trick, you're supposed to pull a rabbit out of a magic hat. It's probably where we got the term 'plot bunny' if honest. So these are my 'rabbits out of the hat', stories that are one shots and prompts. (Harry Potter themed)

    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.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A moment later he looks up. “There is nothing about any thievery or murder attempt; tell me what has happened.

    So Hollin does. The latest reliable reports come from Istanbul, where Laurence and his companions were supposed to make several important purchases for the Aerial Corps on their way back to Britain. Apparently to get there they traversed over a desert, where they were almost killed, and that was after leaving China, where they were almost killed multiple times. And, of course, there were the murder-attempts on the long sea voyage where Laurence had the opportunity to stay in close quarters with his would-be assassins...

    George takes several deep breathes.

    “Of course,” says Hollin, now mostly speculative, “They think the British ambassador was murdered, and even if they got well out of Turkey all the fighting will be in their path back to Britain... We really don't know why it's taking them so long to get back. They were due months ago.” Then, seeing George's evident alarm; “But I'm sure your brother is fine! They are all fine, it is impossible to say what might have happened... and perhaps Captain Laurence was taken prisoner,” like this should actually be a consolation.

    “...Although,” Hollin finishes, “I do not at all know how we will explain matters to China if anything has happened to him, now that the Chinese have just gone to all the fuss of adopting Laurence as their Prince - “

    “What,” says George flatly.

    ...

    In an almost ludicrous attempt at normalcy, Laurence asks George about his plans.

    He writes back, “My New-Years resolution, Will, will be for you to have a quiet and boring year where nothing interesting happens at all.” He underlines this last part three times. “I beg you, please at least leave off anything exciting until next July, if half a year is not too much to ask of you. Father will collapse from the stress soon.”

    Three days later he walks down to breakfast and finds Elizabeth staring at the paper in mute horror. Laurence, it seems, has been convicted of treason. Which is honestly typical.

    ...

    “They are accepting us?” A voice asks suddenly. It's the Longwing, his great head swinging around; George startles slightly to see great spurs sticking from the bottom of his mouth. “They are not afraid?”

    “They were at first,” George admits. “But I arrived with the dragons, every time – Moncey helped. We made the arrangements for the work and most everyone is used to it by now.”

    “Ah,” Roland says; she sounds smug. “And now when the lords bluster about, I can tell those good politicians and generals that common peasant girls are working with dragons while they cower in their offices. I love that. Would you mind if we fly around a bit, Lord Allendale?”

    “The Corps are always welcome here,” George says. He's a bit surprised at himself, to realize that the words ring true.
