    Summary

    “Withdraw your remark!” Laurence responded sharply.
    Tharkay raised his eyebrows, “And if I do not? What then? Will you challenge me to a duel? Such a spectacle is forbidden for aviators, although we both know how little you care for such rules.” He took a few steps closer to Laurence, staring deep into his eyes, not backing down an inch.
    Laurence regarded him hotly, firmly standing his ground. “Hang the rules!” he said fiercely...
    Spoilers for Victory of Eagles. Tharkay and Laurence's discussion goes a little differently than expected.

    Summary

    Accidentally bonded to a Japanese Water-Spitter, the navy decides to promote Laurence to a bigger ship and let Temeraire accompany him at sea.
    They do not, unfortunately, inform his crew of this, and misinformation abounds.

    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

    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

    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.

    Summary

    This was not how Will had expected to spend his Friday evening. It was John who’d convinced him to go - “it’s improv,” he’d said, “but it’s fun, it’s good people! And it’s aimed at readjustment!” - so Will had, understandably, thought that they would go together. A text ten minutes before they were meant to meet told him otherwise. Can’t come, Iskierka needs me. P.S. They always blindfold newcomers to rid them of stagefright. Have fun! :) And so here he was, blindfolded amongst strangers to perform amateur theatre. The room was dusty and cold in the way all Edinburgh buildings were this time of year, but despite the high ceiling he felt confined within his own body. When he gestured that he was ready to start, his movements were choppy, and he took a deep breath to steady himself. He knew how to entertain people; all he had to do was act.

    Bereft of his honor, Laurence becomes something a little less than a man. Set just after Empire of Ivory at the very very beginning of Victory of Eagles.

    Summary

    Temeraire wants to show Laurence just how much he loves him, but there is no way for him to do that himself. He seeks a solution in the form of conveying his affection through his two most trusted crew members.

    (Alternatively: Granby has a rollercoaster of a day and might have just agreed to have sex with a dragon)
