Summary: While investigating Mrs Bingley’s secret, Mr Darcy receives an unwelcome shock.
Timeline Note: His Majesty’s Dragon takes place in 1805; Victory of Eagles in 1808. Pride and Prejudice takes place 1811-1812. Therefore, I’m trying to avoid war events, as I have no clue what’s going to happen next. (The real-world timeline isn’t exactly a help.) This is convenient as I suck at writing action.
At AO3


Ah, Darcy, I cannot tell you how glad I am to see you, Bingley said )

The next ficlet is ready to be beta-read--any volunteers?
beatrice_otter: Sometimes you just have to say screw canon (Screw Canon)
[personal profile] beatrice_otter
The Temeraire wiki has a helpful list of dragon names.  If I had known that when I wrote Lieutenant Bennet's Visit, I would have probably used that and made Lizzy a lieutenant on a dragon we've already seen, rather than making up a name.  I hate making up names.  And dragon names are harder, at least English dragon names, because I don't know Latin enough to fake them.  I doubt I'll need another dragon name other than the canon dragons for the fic I'm writing now, but for future reference: what do people think are good dragon names?
beatrice_otter: Grammar (Grammar)
[personal profile] beatrice_otter
1. No trolling.  Particularly: no ad hominem attacks, no baiting, no bigotry, no character-bashing.

2.  Any and all crossover fics between Temeraire and one of Jane Austen's stories are welcome, although the focus will be on Lieutenant Bennet and its sequels.

3.  All fics must be proofread, at a minimum.  No one likes reading stories with lots of spelling and grammar mistakes.  Preferably, all fics will be beta-read; plot holes and characters acting out of character are to be avoided at all costs.  Hint: if your character has to do something either inexplicable or stupid or out of character in order to advance your plot, it's not a good plot, no matter how much you love it.

That's the basic rules.  Now, on to the fun stuff: does anybody have or can anyone make a good icon/header for this community?
