It's been a Galeni sort of week here, because I've been tinkering with the Duv/Aral fic some more, and rereading Brothers in Arms
and thinking that if anything I am underestimating the crush Duv has on Barrayar and its military. When you calibrate for him being an extremely cool, reserved, ironic sort of man, the way he drifts off into almost poetic exaltation of the Barrayaran service ethos can only lead me to the conclusion that he does, in fact, have a feudalism kink a mile wide. And even more daddy issues than I am taking into account. The things he and Miles talk about when they're locked up together are fascinating and revealing.
As well as that, I wrote, rather at the last minute, this fic for trobadora
as a pinch hit for the blasters_wands
fic exchange, which I can now own up to.
