    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

    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.

     

    (Granby's perspective of the scene in Throne of Jade when Laurence is knocked unconscious)

    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.

    Summary

    Little suddenly turns away and throws himself down on the couch where Laurence previously sat, drunkenness making him stumble a little. He leans heavily against Tharkay, who doesn't mind, and tosses Granby a jaunty salute. “Now you must kiss him, John. I know how long you have wanted to; you will always regret it if you do not."

    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

    Everyone is born with their soulmate's name written on their skin, somewhere.

    A soulmate is not necessarily a romantic bond — it could be your truest friend, your closest comrade, or your deepest enemy — and you don't necessarily have just one. But whoever they are, your world will not be separate from their world; your life cannot be disentangled from their life. Aviators almost always have the names of their dragons.

    Laurence has two names. Neither of them are in a script he can read.
