Description:

Yang Wen-li is forced to take up a secret identity, hiding in the Empire, after his father's death and resulting debt almost forces him into a life of indentured servitude on Phezzan.

Reinhard von Müsel's mother learns that Annerose is to be sold to the Kaiser's court, so she takes her two children and flees to the FPA, arriving as penniless refugees beholden to the Alliance's charity.

A roleswap AU featuring slow burn romance, exciting space battles, court drama, treason, murder, intrigue, strategy, secret identities, heavy handed metaphor, and much, much more.

You do not need familiarity with Legend of the Galactic Heroes to read this story.
