tradition - thewalrus_said - Temeraire - Naomi Novik [Archive of Our Own]
After the third year, Granby gave up all pretence and embraced it as a tradition: The final week of July, barring war, injury, or other disaster, was to be spent on Tharkay’s estate in Scotland. [1496]
“It’s rather wretched, isn’t it?” Granby murmured on the last day of his third visit, standing with Tharkay and watching Laurence upbraid the two dragons for some unkind word or other. “Something about the way his shoulders go when his honor’s been offended. It was nigh unbearable when he was still more a naval man than an aerial one.”

The silence stretched out so long that Granby began to fear he had concluded incorrectly, Tharkay’s sharp gaze pinning him in place, before the other man twitched his lips into a small smile and said, “Yes, I can well imagine it might have been. Have you any advice?”

Relief shot through Granby like the expensive whiskey they had polished off two nights previous. “Well, I would have advised against cohabitation, but it seems that dragon has rather flown, so I’m afraid not. Just sympathy.”

Tharkay snorted. “Much good that will do me. But I appreciate it all the same.”

The Rich Are Always Respectable - AMarguerite - Temeraire - Naomi Novik [Archive of Our Own]
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? [7319]

"For God's sake, if someone doesn't talk Laurence out of these constant heroics, I wouldn't bet a farthing on his chances; no, and not ours either."

Four times that John Granby helped save William Laurence's life. [7742]

Laurence was puzzled as to why anyone should send him and Temeraire to collect a stray dragonet, until he discovered how it had chosen its captain. [2897]

Oceans Left to Fly - Strange_radio - Temeraire - Naomi Novik [Archive of Our Own]
As Tharkay stands at the stern rail of the dragon transport Allegiance, watching England recede with bitter satisfaction, he is acutely aware of the unlikely symmetry inherent in the knowledge that the first man to earn his unconditional loyalty in a great many years is, in fact, a convicted traitor. [1772]

Sea of Stars - canis_m - Temeraire - Naomi Novik [Archive of Our Own]
Laurence and Temeraire, as requested, in space.
Howe's hands were quivering; his fingers flew. "My God, Captain, this OS! I can hardly believe it, but with these specs...." He gestured wildly, and seemed on the verge of cantering about the bridge. "This is a dragonship, Imperial class. The Zhong have kept them under wraps for years. Even our best intelligence is dated. Oh, what a prize!"

Then I am a good sort of ship? asked Temeraire.

Water on Air, an Avatar: Last Airbender and Temeraire crossover fanfic by esama - FanFiction.Net
Why his father bothered being surprised when he went to sea, William wasn't sure. Everyone else, from his mother to distant cousin whom he had only met once and to all their neighbours and vague acquaintances knew that it was only matter of time; ever since he had first made water bend to his will at the age of three, it had been expected. After all, most all male waterbenders went to the sea. It was only matter of course. [8918]

novembersmith: Master Post of Random Ficlets, aka ATTACK OF THE LJ-CUTS
It just so happens that when [info]softlyforgotten and I ramble and glee at each other, it tends to spawn ficlets. And it was getting unwieldy going back through our epic conversations to find the bits I wanted to reread, so I thought, okay, fine. I'll just steal them all and put them in one convenient location. THERE MAY BE SPOILERS IN THE FOLLOWING SNIPPETS, SO DON'T CONTINUE READING UNLESS YOU HAVE AT LEAST FINISHED BLACK POWDER WAR. OKAY? OKAY.

tristesses: To Live for the Day
In which Laurence mopes, and Tharkay provides a distraction. Post-VoE. [~2900. Tharkay/Laurence FIGGING! I never would have thought of it in a million years, but tristesses makes it a surprisingly convincing (and hot) scenario. The idea still makes me laugh, but the execution is amazing. (Side note: this is only like the second or third figging!fic I've read in all my years in fandom, which means I do not have a figging tag. More's the pity.)]

wisdom to the mighty, honor to the brave - meretricula - Temeraire - Novik [Archive of Our Own]
Several scenes aboard the HMS Allegiance, while en route to Terra Australis: wherein privacy is violated, compromises are struck, and Tharkay finds himself designated nursemaid to a group of hopelessly self-destructive aviators. (various permutations of Tharkay/Granby/Laurence/Riley friendship or UST)
