This was a light-hearted and fun short story that the author says takes place between books 1 and 2 of the Temeraire series. Temeraire and Maximus want breakfast, but the people who feed them haven’t come to work yet and they don’t want to wake up their tired crews so they try to get it themselves. Minor chaos ensues.
I doubt this would be very entertaining if one isn’t already familiar with the characters, but I enjoyed it. It can be read for free here.
