    Summary

    Liu Bao looks him in the eye over the table. “Admiral Zheng sailed all the way to Africa,” he says, “but he died on his seventh voyage, and his tomb is empty. You have gone around the world more than once. Have you never been worried that you would die at sea, and no one would perform the rites at your grave?

    Laurence answers as truthfully as he knows how. “No,” he says, “never, though I have feared the opposite — that I would die on land, and be buried in the earth, and I would never know home again.”

    Summary

    Spoilers up to "Crucible of Gold".

    Laurence is extremely pleased with the relationship he has with Tharkay. Too bad he doesn't really understand what it is.

    Fortunately, that's what friends are for.

    (Or: a little crack-y fic where Laurence discovers the real nature of his relationship with Tharkay.)

    Summary

    Laurence has been looking forward to a relaxing retirement. He has everything he could want, a doting dragon, a satisfied lover, and a plethora of loyal friends. However, uneasiness encroaches on his paradise in the form of the ever increasing absence of his dearest friend. Tharkay's distance troubles him, and it doesn't help that he keeps turning down invitations to join him for dinner with Jane. He is determined to get to the bottom of it, but doesn't realize that his meddling will bring much more change than he is prepared for, and if doesn't rise to the challenge, he may lose his dear Tharkay forever.

    Summary

    Author's summary: For the Temeraire Exchange. Tharkay inherits and is forced to become respectable, with mixed results. Featuring more Jane Austen characters than you can shake a parasol at, because the prompt included a request for a ball, and what's a ball without a horde of Bennets in attendance?

    Summary

    Author's Summary: ‘It is no good asking me,’ Laurence said at last, pushing the pattern-book away over breakfast, ‘I am not the one–’ Not the one who would be living with the result, he had been about to say. But they had hardly accepted Tharkay’s invitation as casual houseguests.
