    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

    "Everything about Captain William Laurence is impossibly, perfectly correct—from his mode of address to the tie of cravat. Somehow, he even manages to keep his clothing perfectly pressed as they cross the Himalayan wilds. It looks exhausting. Tharkay wonders idly if there’s anything underneath the polished veneer."

    Just a little drabble that wouldn't leave me alone. Steals dialogue from cannon.

    Warnings: cursing, slight reference to suicidal ideations, unbeta'd.

    Summary

    Summary

    Silk like waves, hair like offerings, hands like tenderness -- eyes full of reverence -- "You have never not been yourself, Will."

    Eyes full of reverence. "I like when you tell me my stories."

    This fic went from a place to keep my stray thoughts -- mostly answers to internal questions that came up while writing Parts 1 & 2 -- to the actual Part 3 of the Compass Series.

    Summary

    “The captain was clearly one of those Englishmen who, having acquired a taste for the exotic during his travels and being a gentleman of means, wielded his power over the natives to affect the trappings of a status he had not earned...

    ...For his own part, Tharkay had long since ceased to draw from the poisoned well the British called love.”

    Tharkay and Laurence’s story from Tharkay’s perspective, from Black Powder War through Tongue of Serpents.
