    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

    Temeraire soon found that he took great pleasure in flying amongst the mountains, now that he was not fleeing for his life or preparing himself for war. The Cairngorm plateaux was itself dwarfed by the grand massifs of the Himal, or the forbidding serrated peaks of the Karokaram, and yet, as Temeraire swooped through the great pass of the Lairig Ghru he felt quite insignificant, a speck amongst sleeping giants.

    Summary

    Tenzing Tharkay, John Granby and William Laurence are enjoying a domestic life in the states. Laurence is making sure no one burns the house down, Granby gets them to laugh and Tharkay does his best to keep this disaster family, they have found in one another, alive.
    Everything is bliss until Granby and Tharkay have to realize that there are certain things they have not been told about and Laurence suddenly running short on shallow graves to bury his past.

    Summary

    The name comes when he is 15, and Laurence hides it immediately.

    Then at the age of 22 Laurence reads a letter from an old shipmate who writes that “the troops in Italy were routed by some new General of theirs, Napoleon Bonaparte - "

    Summary

    This has to stop. Laurence shoves Granby away so hard the door rattles in its frame. He does his best to say what he rehearsed, but Granby just narrows his eyes, cocks his head on one side, and interrupts before Laurence has said more than a half dozen words.

    “I want to call you ‘sir’ while you suck me off.” He announces carelessly. Laurence chokes on the air in his throat. Granby settles himself against the door, loose-limbed and hot-eyed, and starts stroking himself through his trousers. He looks regal and expectant, and every movement of his hand sets Laurence’s traitorous mouth to watering.

    Laurence nearly does himself an injury falling to his knees.

    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

    “A glory hound, perhaps,” muses Napoleon; maybe the man is not unlike himself.

    “De Guignes did not seem to think so,” replies Murat. “The captain saved his nephew, I think; and by all accounts he is not a braggart.”

    “That does not make him an honest man.” Though neither of them know what it does make him. “I should like to know more about him; he seems quite the interesting character, this Laurence.”

    Or: William Laurence is not what Napoleon expects him to be.

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

    EDIT: 09/19/2019 Update/rewriting in progress, old Chapters are being removed and the new ones are going up.

    Summary

    A podfic of novembersmith's story First Crossing.

    Author's Summary: "Clearly your egg will not wait for a convenient time, either; I am not much surprised. Make haste, Mr. Dorset, let us bring the egg further out on deck. And have the men halt the proceedings; we will celebrate this crossing of the Equator in a much more auspicious fashion than usual, I think."

    Summary

    Five years after a certain aviator captain and his dragon have brought down an alleged tyrant, tensions flare in a thriving Britain. Tensions that force Emily Roland to lie low for some time in a London townhouse.
    Though technically protected by her former Captain's growing influence and reputation, William Laurence makes always for good company and even better bait for trouble.

    Summary

    Prince William, Duke of Avondale, third son of the Prince of Wales, fourth in the line of succession for the British Crown, has always known how he was meant to lead his life; surrounded by protocol, hounded by media, coddled by the state. And, recently, protected by one Tenzing Tharkay.

    Summary

    Captain William Laurence of the HMS Reliant had survived gales and typhoons of the worst sort, had captured French ships in the multitudes, but found himself utterly powerless before the shining, hopeful eyes of Emily Roland, the courier from the Draconian Aerial Corps that had waylaid him in the marketplace.

    She had scrambled through the crowd before tugging on his sleeve urgently, chattering excitedly about the disappearance of livestock, the mysterious churning of giant waves in the distance, how ships have begun disappearing off of the coast of Portugal.

    As an after-thought, she remembers to salute and introduce herself.
