    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

    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

    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

    It was completely the wrong shape for a human and Harry was not an Animagus, so was very used the shape of a human, and therefore clearly aware of his very much not human body. He now had too long a spine, legs felt like they bent in the wrong ways, something itched and rubbed on his back near his shoulders, and there was a vague sense of extra-ness where his tail-bone was.

    First in the Thunder Goddess series. Set in the Temeraire verse with AU elements. Mostly Canon events in the HP verse until after Epilogue.

    Summary

    John is just trying to live a quiet life with his not-so-quiet daughter Iskierka when Tenzing bulldozes into his world with an injured sailor. Now he has two new roommates and an unwilling front-seat to an epic romance - or he would, if Tenzing and Laurence could get their act together.

    Summary

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

    Summary

    "You are always looking out for us, Tenzing. It would be a welcome change," Laurence managed, through the mortification threatening to choke him, "to do something for you in return."

    Summary

    Written for a Live Journal challenge. The A-Team meets Temeraire. It seemed like a good idea at the time!

    This was written around about the release of book #6, Tongues Of Serpents, but any spoilers up to that point are pretty incidental. I'm afraid I had rather lost track of where in time the series had got, and was approximating to a setting of around 1811.

    Summary

    The Regal Copper Laurentius accidentally acquires a captain, Tharkay spectates, Temeraire is Not Actually an Orphan, and no one really knows who's leading France. Someone should probably get on that, considering England is at war with the place.

    Summary

    After Laurence is thrust into his new role as an aviator he wonders if sudden-onset telepathy is a typical part of the captain-dragon bond. He tries to find out without asking, and Temeraire is largely unhelpful.

    Summary

    Finally, everything was going right for Frederick Wentworth. He had been made Captain, had significant prize money in the funds and Miss Anne Elliot had accepted his (second) proposal. The last thing he needed was a dragon to ruin it all.
