    Summary

    In response to the prompt, I went for characters - all canon specific females, as specified - who are mentioned but rarely, if ever, seen, that I felt had a major impact on and/or were important his life. The first two - there are three in all (there’s no such thing as too much Aral) - are not even named in the Vorkosiverse.

    This is the third and last of the series, the first being Ugly Duckling (http://archiveofourown.org/works/1405570), and the second - Where the Heart Is (http://archiveofourown.org/works/1415245)

     

    "What he had learned today - or rather, had been delightfully reminded of what he had once known very long ago - was the enchanting wisdom of a child."

    1.) Play in the mud whenever you get the chance.
    2.) Sometimes it’s good to eat dessert first.
    3.) You can never give too many hugs. Or get them.

    Summary

    Belatedly, from a Ficathon 2013 Prompt from ana:
    Someone gives Aral important advice/a life lesson. Whether from words of wisdom (a conversation he has with someone) or due to an event (good or bad, big or small, stupid or profound)is up to you - my only criteria is that there is a canon character involved, preferably female, and she doesn't have to be an adult - could be a child. BUT NOT CORDELIA.

     

    His ragged sigh was dark, bottomless, gutwrenching. “Somehow, I thought I’d feel better once it was over; that I’d feel good, victorious. Vindicated. But I don’t, Gran. I don’t at all. Just dirty. Sick and dirty. It feels like....” his new voice cracked, “I might never be clean again."

    "Oh, he knew full well it was coming, the seemingly obligatory ‘small for his age, isn’t he?’ comment, but that didn’t take any of the sting out of it. Wincing mentally in advance, he just hoped he could get it over with sooner rather than later, so maybe, just maybe, the rest of the evening wouldn’t be too grueling, and he might actually enjoy some of it."

    In another universe, Cordelia never returns to Barrayar. Simon Illyan attempts to pick up the pieces of the shattered wreck that is Aral Vorkosigan, and the Regency spirals off in a very different direction. An AU spanning post-Escobar to Regency-era, a story about survivors, swords, and sharp edges.
