    Summary

    The crew of the Reliant had never seen a dragon quite like Temeraire. Soon speculation as to his origins began to spring among them. At first, the most accepted theory was that the dragon was surely of a tropical island, but it didn’t take long for Temeraire to outgrow his pigmy cousins and that theory was proved wrong. Some men thought his sleek body, narrower than that of the dragons they had seen flying overhead during battles, meant he had his origins in South America and had been made to weave through the thick jungle. Other men thought, once Temeraire's wingspan grew enough to also disprove that theory, that Temeraire was an African dragon as surely only a continent with elephants could support his ever-growing form and his seemingly never-ending hunger.

    But when Laurence expresses to Temeraire his worry that the dragon would soon outgrow the ship and Temeraire happily and obligingly turns himself into a young man, Laurence solves the mystery of Temeraire’s origin as the grinning boyish face looking up at him was clearly Chinese.

    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

    William Laurence spent his formative years in His Majesty’s Royal Navy, not the aerial corps. It was expected—if not enjoyed—that he didn’t know about certain things. Luckily, now that John Granby and himself were getting along, Laurence could occasionally rely on the other man to help him avoid too many faux pas in one day.

    Laurence wasn't prepared for Granby's answer when he asked who were Captain Dawson and his dragon Christiana.

    Summary

    Midshipman Laurence is six weeks into his first voyage on the Reliant when Captain Riley announces that they've captured a dragon egg.

     
    "Well, I hope the little monster doesn’t hatch halfway back to London,” muttered Battersea with characteristic cantankerousness. “It would be just our luck to have some French demon burn the Reliant to the waterline."

    Summary

    It had frightened Laurence dreadfully, the first time Temeraire threw himself off the side of the Reliant to swim in play - sinking deep and deeper still, for long minutes at a time.

    Summary

    “I don’t like this in the least,” Granby says, and if his tone is not as combative as it had been, it is not yet entirely resigned. "Leaving you to traipse through a desert, we know not how wide, looking for some trail of crumbs in a pile of sand. ‘Tis rank foolishness, and I shan’t pretend otherwise.”
