    Summary

    It's 1836 and Lieutenant Stuart Rankin hates his life: The Australian frontier wars have left him half an orphan, his father’s dragon, Caesar, despises him, and after a close shave with a bunyip, he finds himself shipped to England to be married off to a cousin, his only escape being a post on a third-rate dragon training with the Corps’ most notorious renegade, the Celestial Temeraire. But love, like gold, can be found in the most unlikely places, for those brave enough to search their soul.

    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

    Laurence desires nothing more than to retire to Tharkay's estate and help Temeraire get to Parliament, for what more could he want than a place in Britain with space enough for a dragon, and the company of a dear friend? But wars rarely end so neatly. Bellicose lords, Bourbon princes, errant heirs and shadowy forces threaten to undermine the very peace that Laurence and Temeraire fought to obtain, and ruin the happiness that Laurence was just beginning to glimpse.

    Summary

    “सुभाय्, tata,” she said. “Ya’rcq”ilnaantlxሄ.”

    Summary

    Laurence could feel the familiar sweat of awkward social interactions breaking out on his forehead and hands. But it was not even his fault; how was he supposed to know this bloke's last name when Temeraire introduced him differently! Now that Tenzing - Mr. Tharkay, damn it! - was standing next to Temeraire Laurence could feel his hawk-like eyes boring into him. He didn’t like the feeling. Not in the slightest. It felt like Mr. Tharkay knew Laurence had just called him by the wrong name again in his mind.

    Summary

    Laurence stood in the library, trying and failing to choose a new book to read to Temeraire that afternoon. Temeraire had expressed interest in the majority of them and Laurence was having trouble choosing which of the mathematical texts he could tolerate the best.

    "Mr. William Laurence!" Tharkay's voice sounded from the other room, loud enough to carry down the hall. Laurence couldn't help but flinch at the anger in his tone.

    Summary

    chapter 13, Victory of Eagles

    “There will be no quarter given,” Laurence said. There was a heavy finality to his tone, who somehow warded off any other questions; the captains did not say anything, even to one another.

    "Killing soldiers," Laurence said at last, "most of whom are starving; and making them vicious, so they give us still-better excuse."

    “Rules of Engagement” was inspired by consumptive_sphinx's fic “l'chaim," which features a Jewish Augustine Little. I thought the brutal campaign against the French irregulars would be a good time for Little and Granby to become, er, more engaged. What was I thinking.
