A mate for Lien by Kooskia A mate for Lien by Kooskia
(c) Naomi Novik (characters and story)
(c) Kooskia (fancomic)

I'm not a great fan of Lung Tien Lien but... while reading on the Temeraire wiki of this little detail of her story, i simply had to do this fancomic XD
And i think that Lien + Napoleon needs more fanarts v.v
However...

Now i've a little question for the best readers...
in WHICH book and when it's told about the proposed French mates for Lien ??
I've read the first 4 books in my language and there is nothing about this. And neither in the fifth book in english.

Maybe itt's in the sixth book?
(if the edition in my language lack some lines... i will start doing a mess <.< We have an HORRIBLE translation with a number of grammar errors in OUR language... but i seriously hope that the lines were not altered)

PLEASE, IF YOU FAVE IT, COMMENT IT ; )

Thank you!
Don't know xD But i'm not that skilled with them...
On dragons, my works are about Temeraire, but some also about Eragon (mostly old ones) or Age of Fire  (new ones)

However i've done a number of such fancomics (of different original stories), and more will come.

Just maybe at not very fast pace, due university-study.
In this year i mostly completed 1 or 2 arts for month <.<

Oh, believe me, the way you draw dragons is far better than you think, it's such a cute, cartoony style. In the case of your dragon work, I've seen most of it now, and I'm happy to wait on more; it'll be worth it!

Haha thanks ^^
Most issue i think it's that's repetitive as style...
and also as themes-fun can xD
but if one love characters and pick the best fun events, exagerate them a little or stress some thing, can cause some laughing.

Honestly it's one of the main reasons for my drawing: have laugh about it, and make other people laugh and sharing a feeling together. ^^

The key thing it's to search for the best pieces of humor, or maybe extrapolate them or think at the possibilities..

As has been wrote, it's a short story that has been included into a collections of novel, under the name of Wings of Fire.
Sadly i've never found an online link for the direct novel and i only read the basic plot and what happens in it ^^

I glad you like it. As you can see your fan-comics is pretty correct. I really like that short story, because of Lien's POV and it very interesting to know, how she could integrate herself into French society and got own pavilion and jewelries. It would be cool if Naomi Novik would write the alternative series, though I have doubts of this. Lien is not an action girl and her story looks more like a historical political romance, I'm not sure that Naomi is good in such a genre. Though Lien had her own quest in the third book so another short story is very possible.

Well...  Naomi said that she still would write about Temeraire world. Maybe not about Lien, but we could probably enjoy other stories about similar themes x3

What is Wings of Fire?

Kooskia Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2013
I've told you x3 it's one one of the official Temeraire book series.
It's a book that include collections of many different author's short stories and novels, including this one of Naomi Novik.
The Novik herself already wrote other little ones, for exemple she wrote  "Vici", the first bond formed by a dragon and a man in ancient Rome.

Lien is not really evil, she just wants to avenge the death of someone who was not worthy of her affection. But i wonder what will be her reaction when she realizes that her beloved prince almost started a war between China and England because of his ambition.

But i agree, Lien + Napoleon need more fanart. Too bad i can't draw characters nicely yet.

Nice story!!

I know they mention in passing in the 7th book that Napoleon wanted her to breed with French dragons and she refused on the supposed grounds that Celestials cannot breed with other Celestials, but I don't know anything about Naomi Novik going in depth about the suitors Napoleon chose for her.
Reply
:iconkooskia:
Kooskia Featured By Owner May 6, 2012
Um... for what i understood Lien seemed simply unhappy of her "being breed" as an horse or a dog. However for what i've read on some speculation... it's possible that Chinese dragons are a bit distant from their european cousins (that's because Tem failed for now to have offspring) but it seemed clear to me that in China CelXCel wasn't done because risk of inbreeding, so they did CelXImper
I'm however wondering if Cel or Imper X another Chinese breed can give results v.v
I've still not read the book6 and book7... but if these supposition are correct, i think we should have to wait the last book/s or a short sequel short story to see (maybe) Temeraire having a son/daughter with (probably) Mei v.v

Or Iskierka, lol cause the first thing she announced to Temeraire shortly after she hatched was "you may give me an egg."
Poor Temeraire, lmao!!

:iconkooskia:
Kooskia Featured By Owner May 8, 2012
Hehe.. but i don't know if i want see this XD Iskierka well.. i sort of love/hate her at the same time XD
However, maybe being from turkish origin she is more "close" to eastern dragons but... i'm starting to think that actually Novik did this thing (tell us that Temeraire probably can't have children with western dragons) mainly for one reason: to not have been forced to write and design a character that fans would see, a child of Tem.
In his place I would have made (sadly) ​​the same choice, because readers would create huge expectations about it v.v

AtemsAngel Featured By Owner May 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
This is sadly true. It also allows her to end the series after a reasonable number of books, so we don't have to worry about what Temeraire's children are doing lol!
Children or no children, I love Temeraire and I hope that he continues to have adventures with Laurence for a long time!

There's two other short stories out there for the Temeraire canon that you might like to read;

*Feast or Famine, which expands on the scene in Throne Of Jade about Temeraire learning how to open the animal pens.
*Vici, which tells how the first dragon was ever harnessed in the western world (by a certain Mark Antony, of all people!)

There were also several short drabbles on various subjects that were released, but not all of those were canon - zombie cows, anyone? They can all be found here; [link]

Here's hoping they give you more ideas for scenes - I really like reading your short comics!

:iconkooskia:
Kooskia Featured By Owner May 6, 2012
Thank you x3 I had already heard of this two and i've read Vici .. and liked it lots ^^
Will read the other as soon as i can, even if i have also 1)read the 6book 2)keep writing my fanfic in italian and possibly make some arts about it v.v

I know that there are better artists, but i will surely keep doing some stuff about Tem. x3
