    Bookmarker's Notes

    An amazing anti-colonialist reimagining of the Vorkosigan Saga - decentering the Vorkosigans and their aristocratic honor, recentering the story of Komarr and its citizens. Written with a lot of sympathy for Aral Vorkosigan and Gregor Vorbarra and their personal virtues, but also taking a clear-eyed look at the flaws in their politics and worldviews.

    For all its apparent beauty, a society built around a structure of dependence and subjection can neither be free nor free another. Freedom of thought, without fear and without barriers, is a gift far too great to be sacrificed on the altar of blind loyalty.

    Summary

    Traitors were always taken and buried in unmarked graves--families forbidden to claim them or burn offerings. But no one had the courage to stop Countess Vorkosigan, after her son was declared dead, from mounting the stand and carrying him away in her own arms.

    Summary

    An AU in which Miles has an older brother.

    Updated: An AU in which Aral and his first wife (named Therese for my purposes) had a son: Piotr Richars Vorkosigan, who is nicknamed Petya. And then also an AU of that AU, in which Wrong Things Happened at Escobar and Serg didn't die, leading to a civil war after he ascended the throne. The stories are listed in the order they were posted. See below for the chronological order.

    Updated yet again: The main series page for all fics containing Piotr Richars "Petya" Vorkosigan, the AU son of Aral and his first wife (named Therese for my purposes). The stories are listed below in the order they were posted. See each series page for a chronological order list of fics in it.

     

    Basic overview:

    Canon verse: the original shove-Petya-into-canon verse.

    Escobar Split verse: the one where Serg didn't die at Escobar, leading to a civil war after he takes the throne.

    Komarr Split verse: the one where Serg assassinated Ezar after Komarr and then a civil war broke out.
