The Honour of House Vorkosigan by Philomytha

'After Yuri and the Cetagandans, Vorbarr Sultana politics had been supremely dull for Piotr.' Wonderful dissection of politics & family loyalties in this piece of Shards backstory. One of those works that goes straight into my personal canon

[Added 07/02/2011; Drama; 1000-2500; Vorkosigan series; Characters: Piotr Vorkosigan, Ezar Vorbarra]

The Offer by Beatrice Otter

'If Ezar had spared her life a decade ago, he would not kill her now for anything short of outright treason. She could say what she liked. That was the greatest freedom she could never have imagined, twelve years ago when she made her vows in the circle of groats.' A fascinating AU premise – it's Aral's sister who survives the massacre not Aral – thoughtfully carried through. I'd love to read more of this scenario

[Added 15/10/2015; Drama; 2500-6000; Vorkosigan series; Characters: Aral's sister, Ezar Vorbarra, Piotr Vorkosigan, Negri, OC]
