Two huge things happen during the lead-up to Misha's freshman year at Singer. Firstly, he and Vicki break up. …They're still best friends, and they're both going west for school, but it really doesn't seem right for them to stay bound to each other. Not when they'll be in different states. Not when they want different things out of a relationship. Breaking up makes sense. It's almost perfunctory.
Secondly, Misha meets one, Matt Bomer.

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.
