    Wow...
    "Aral: intelligent and honourable and powerful and yet still unable to perceive, let alone dismantle, the foundational injustices of the culture that produced him."

    "Freedom of thought, without fear and without barriers, is a gift far too great to be sacrificed on the altar of blind loyalty."

    I mark this as 'epic' even though it's less than 10K words because there is so much going on in this story it really does feel epic to me.

    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.
