    Summary

    "I am -- as much as any of them -- Vor. I serve. I don't question it; even when it seems like I'm putting the rest of them down, it's there. I failed at a Vor woman's duty. As a girl, I was told to be modest, prudent, and chaste -- and I failed. My father married me off to the highest bidder -- a Count! -- to make more little Vor lords, and I failed. I tried to make friends with the High Vor ladies, go to their teas, get drawn into their gossip, and instead I got too friendly with their husbands, so I failed. I pulled myself into the mold of what everyone expected of slightly damaged Vor goods, married again -- twice -- and I failed utterly. The kind of service I can do, everything I'm best at --- managing the District --- it's worth nothing if I'm not male."

    Summary

    When Richars Vorrutyer tried to rape his 12 year old cousin Donna, only their other cousin Byerly believed her.

    The relevant canon quote is from A Civil Campaign:


    "You believed my version," said Dono to By. "Almost the only person to do so."
    "Ah, but I'd had my own experiences with Richars by then," said By. He did not volunteer further details.
    "I was not yet in your father's service," Szabo pointed out, possibly in self-exculpation.
    "Count yourself lucky," sighed Dono. "To describe that household as lax would be overly kind."

    Contains allusions to attempted rape of a pubescent girl and non-consensual sex between teenage boys. Possibly squickful incestuous overtones...

    Written for litalex for the 2006 Bujold ficathon on livejournal.

    Summary

    “I doubt,” said Dono in a suddenly clinical tone, “that anyone would care, at this late date that he tried to rape me when I was twelve, and when I fought him off, drowned my new puppy in retaliation. After all, no one cared at the time.” ACC.

    Dono finally releases old memories.

    Summary

    I’d heard that are-you-leaving-me? wobble in dozens of voices over the years; the answer was nearly always yes. But that wasn’t all; Olivia was worried about me, bless her, a High Vor lady suddenly deprived of my home and visible means of support. What was left of my own dowry was enough for me to live modestly for several years, but modesty had never been one of my virtues, as Olivia knew. In fact almost all that money had already been spent, or good as.

    “We have to talk,” I said.

    Lady Donna has a proposal for Olivia.

    Summary

    A standalone scene after the attack at Vorfolse House, in which Dono struggles to keep his momentum. Canon-compliant, but I firmly believe that any scene which mentions Richars Vorrutyer should require a warning.

    Summary

    podfic of schemingreader's fic

     

    You would think I would have been more loyal to my surprisingly naïve and sweetly handsome ex-boyfriend and less to my double-agent cousin, Byerly. But Byerly has always treated me like a brother, and is…dependable in his duplicity. I have so many ex-boyfriends, but only one family member who ever supported me.
