I'm in the middle of reading book 4 and I had some observations I would like opinions on. Cut for spoilers.

Discussion, Aviators, Granby and really how stubborn is Laurence?

So, </a></strong></a>[info]enigmalea and I were discussing the possibilty of a Granby/Laurence relationship. Which one would make the first move, what their attitude and of those around them would be, etc. And we started talking about the Aviators community and how different it is from both the 'civilians' and the Navy (we didn't mention any other branch of the military so far). I thought the conversation was becoming really interesting so I decided to start a new post where anyone can contribute to the discussion.

This is the thread and I'd love to hear everyoine's opinion on the issue.

If you don't feel like following the link, the main points are

1) A possible Granby/Laurence relationship and its consequences.
2) What would the Aviators' community's view of an homosexual relationship compared with the rest of their contemporaries be.
3) Speculations and general geekery over the Aviators and their life :)

FIC: Falling - Temeraire Books - Granby/Laurence

Title: Free falling
Author: Lucas Quinn
Fandom: Temeraire (by Naomi Novik)
Pairings: Granby/Laurence
Rating: G
Genres: Slash (not your cup of tea, don't read it)
Author’s Notes: I had the feeling Granby was so set against Laurence at the beginning for a slightly more personal reason. So in my twisted little mind Granby and Dayes (who I also gave the name Peter) had a Jlittle something going  
Author’s Notes 2: This takes place during Black Powder War, when Granby gets thrown off Temeraire by two French officers who had boarded him.

Intro and Fanfic

All right... time to pop the fic cherry. I started reading this series just after Christmas on recommendation from a friend, who I will forever be indebted to. I'm already halfway through book 4 and ridiculously into it. This probably isn't what you were expected from fanfic from this series. It isn't in the least canon and is probably more crack than anything, but I couldn't get the scene out of my head, so I wrote it.

Title: Of Fear and Duty
Pairing: Granby/Laurence
Words: 1068
Rating: NC-17
Warnings: Frottage.
A/N: Takes place after the opening scene of Book 3 Black Powder War.
Disclaimer: They're not mine. I didn't make money off this garbage. Don't sue. I know. I'm on crack. If you don't like slash... don't read it.

Kicking things off

Since I can't expect people to start posting fic within the first few days (unless any of you have any that you've posted elsewhere and you want to repost here) I'm going to try and start some discussion.

So - introduce yourselves. Tell me a little about who you are and what you're hoping to see here. Post any links you think we'd be interested in. And we'll start with a simple question - we've seen Europe, China, the Ottoman Empire, Africa ... where would you like to see next, or where would you like to see more of if it's somewhere we've already been, and why?

I'll start you all off.

I'm Joe, your mod. I'm British and, despite my name, female. I'm currently hugely addicted to the Temeraire books, but I loved Master and Commander (the film, I haven't read the books), the Horatio Hornblower tv movies, and Pirates of the Caribbean as well and run [info]ageofsail for fic and art about age of sail fiction. I know Temeraire is technically not about ships but when I recommend it to people I call it Hornblower, but on dragons. It has the same general feel. I love the whole feel of the period, the clothing, the adventures, and of course the way the character interactions differ from today because of rank/class and etiquette. I'm an historian (although this isn't the period I studied) and a geek so I am a huge fan of accuracy. I think research really makes a story set in this period come alive and it drives me insane when I see anachronisms. I love how well the Temeraire books bring alive the period and countries they travel through.

I have to make a confession - I haven't read the fourth book yet. My best friend raved about the series and then ranted for *hours* about the ending and not wanting to wait so long for book five so I'm holding off till we're a little closer to book five coming out. I'll start on it soon though. So I can't talk about Africa but the place I'd really like to see is America. South America would be cool too but I really want to see North American and the Native Americans with their dragons. I want to see how and if the presence of dragons has changed things from how history unfolded in our world and I am intrigued about the idea of one rider per dragon instead of a whole crew.
