"...and not content with stopping there came towards them, exclaiming, "Captain Laurence! I hope I find you in the best of health." He greeted Hammond and Granby on De Guigne's introduction with similar warmth..." (on Napoleon's arrival in Cusco.)
My question is this: Does Granby need to be introduced to Napoleon? Did he not meet him during the occupation of London when Iskierka was captured, or is it assumed that Napoleon didn't have time to meet with Granby while he was being kept in Kensington palace?
I got to thinking about how that first meeting, if it occurred, might have gone and eventually started looking for anything in that vein on AO3. Unfortunately, there are hardly any Temeraire fics that even include Napoleon! I never found what I was looking for.
So, what I'd really like to see is some Napoleon/Granby slash. Kinda weird, but not really weirder than a lot of pairings I find. I'm posting this in hopes that someone will be inspired to write it, or on the off chance that someone already has written it. It need not be explicit, or anything more than subtext, but Laurence's comment that Napoleon is "unreasonably fond of seduction" could be a starting point.
And at that, I wouldn't say no to some Napoleon/Laurence, either...
