    Summary

    It's 1836 and Lieutenant Stuart Rankin hates his life: The Australian frontier wars have left him half an orphan, his father’s dragon, Caesar, despises him, and after a close shave with a bunyip, he finds himself shipped to England to be married off to a cousin, his only escape being a post on a third-rate dragon training with the Corps’ most notorious renegade, the Celestial Temeraire. But love, like gold, can be found in the most unlikely places, for those brave enough to search their soul.

    Summary

    Laurence could feel the familiar sweat of awkward social interactions breaking out on his forehead and hands. But it was not even his fault; how was he supposed to know this bloke's last name when Temeraire introduced him differently! Now that Tenzing - Mr. Tharkay, damn it! - was standing next to Temeraire Laurence could feel his hawk-like eyes boring into him. He didn’t like the feeling. Not in the slightest. It felt like Mr. Tharkay knew Laurence had just called him by the wrong name again in his mind.

    Summary

    chapter 13, Victory of Eagles

    “There will be no quarter given,” Laurence said. There was a heavy finality to his tone, who somehow warded off any other questions; the captains did not say anything, even to one another.

    "Killing soldiers," Laurence said at last, "most of whom are starving; and making them vicious, so they give us still-better excuse."

    “Rules of Engagement” was inspired by consumptive_sphinx's fic “l'chaim," which features a Jewish Augustine Little. I thought the brutal campaign against the French irregulars would be a good time for Little and Granby to become, er, more engaged. What was I thinking.

    Summary

    Captain William Laurence was certain that no one in England, or in the entire world, had ever met a woman quite like Hua Cheng. In the face of the scorn of the Chinese dignitaries and the endless curiosity of his dragon, Hua Cheng is the only one who seems to truly have Temeraire's best interests at heart.

    Summary

    Silk like waves, hair like offerings, hands like tenderness -- eyes full of reverence -- "You have never not been yourself, Will."

    Eyes full of reverence. "I like when you tell me my stories."

    This fic went from a place to keep my stray thoughts -- mostly answers to internal questions that came up while writing Parts 1 & 2 -- to the actual Part 3 of the Compass Series.

    Summary

    “Good God, man!” Granby shattered the stillness without compunction. “Why didn’t you stop in Plymouth?”

    “Because,” James slurred, the medication the surgeon had administered finally beginning to take effect, “the message was urgent, and I knew Volly could deliver it a damn sight quicker than any dragon they have in Plymouth.”

    Summary

    “The captain was clearly one of those Englishmen who, having acquired a taste for the exotic during his travels and being a gentleman of means, wielded his power over the natives to affect the trappings of a status he had not earned...

    ...For his own part, Tharkay had long since ceased to draw from the poisoned well the British called love.”

    Tharkay and Laurence’s story from Tharkay’s perspective, from Black Powder War through Tongue of Serpents.

    Summary

    Rereading His Majesty’s Dragon is a notable experience in many ways, not least of which is the abundance of skin on display when Laurence and Temeraire arrive at Loch Laggan. Before Granby realizes who Laurence is and they get off on the wrong foot, Laurence declares himself to be on Team Granby, at least as far as balls are concerned.

    Therefore, I amused myself by writing the Lt. Dayes-free version of Laurence & Granby: The Early Days, trying to keep as much of the original story as possible, using italics to indicate Novik's text. The italics are used in Chapter 1 and Chapter 4; Chapters 2 and 3 are my contribution, i.e. the smut.

    Summary

    Laurence finds a happy ending for himself in part one, or so he thinks, but as his child is born and he becomes a father, he learns that there are a lot of loose threads in his life that badly need tending to. Little seems to hate him, his daughter won't stop screaming, and he keeps kissing Granby--oh, and there's another dragon on the way. With everything happening, Laurence can't help feeling like his life is spinning wildly out of control. Can he bring peace to his ever-expanding household, or are things destined to split apart?
