    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

    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?

    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

    Another day in the life of John Granby, another failed attempt to seduce William Laurence. But when a misunderstanding pairs him off with Tharkay instead, tantalizing new possibilities open up for all three of them.

    Mostly smut.

    Summary

    The best and worst part was that Laurence considered him his closest friend, and he thought the same. He loved Laurence in all his glory and all his flaws. Maybe it would have been easier if he only loved some idealised version of Laurence in his head, but would it have been as sincere? Granby thought not.

    He sees Tharkay come to a similar realisation in Istanbul. Watching his own emotions play in another man’s eyes is an indescribable experience, and so is the friendship that it sparks between them. If Laurence is surprised to learn how close Granby and Tharkay become so fast, propriety demands he doesn’t comment on it.

    Summary

    It is well known amongst aviators that John Granby is prone to injuries, and really Granby is glad for it. It would be a lot harder for him to explain that he – literally – cannot be killed.

    Summary

    1838: William 'Little Will' Laurence never wanted to be an aviator, for all the love of dragons. His brother Horatio would be Temeraire’s second captain, and he a naturalist like Sir Edward Howe, no matter his father’s disapproval. But best laid plans go awry when Horatio is demoted following a duel and Ning strikes a disastrous bargain with the East India Company selling opium in China. So Little Will must find his feet in a hundred-day race to China and back, and not lose a wager that could cost his brother’s post, Temeraire’s fortune, and his family’s honour.

    Summary

    In which our hapless author attempts to explain what transpired in the three weeks between Mr. Tharkay's return from Turkestan and his retrieval of Mr. Laurence from captivity.

    Part of my transition from ff.net, this is my very first fanfic ever! Originally published in 2010, it’s finally getting some fresh air! Chapter 9 is complete and Chapter 10 is being scrubbed for errors and clarity.

    Summary

    For Whrain, going with the prompts of "Everyone has a good day" and "Quality family time with Temeraire" (and also it's a modern AU because why not).

    I don't know why Demane is there while Iskierka is still a baby, except that it's an AU and I wanted it that way.

    Summary

    That Laurence can’t bring himself to name the act that they are discussing is maybe an indication that he shouldn’t agree. But if it is something Granby likes, then Laurence is inclined to try. After all, Granby has not led him astray yet.
