Subject: [LMB] 5GU music

This has been sloshing around the internet for some time, I'm sure, but
it's very like what I imagine some of those 5GU 5-voiced Temple choirs
to sound like.


There's another recording of the same in a train station with acoustics
like a Cedonian stone temple. Minus the PA system and the trains, natch.

Ta, L.

Bujold Ficathon 2016 is open for prompts and fills!

Dunno if there's anyone still out there, but I'm looking for a Vorkogisan fic.

It's a fic about the birth of the Crown Prince. I remember some scenes from it, but not the title or the author. I remember there's a crowd outside the palace, that nearly goes into riot when they raise the Crown Prince's flag. And then Gregor goes out on the balcony to get the crowd to be quiet because the baby is sleeping, or something.

If anyone's around and can help, I'd appreciate it!

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...."

No, wait a minute – wrong fandom!

Except, it was a long, long time ago and it does feel like far, far away….

The 2011 Bujold Fest to be precise – FIVE YEARS AGO!!!!

I claimed a wonderful prompt from Tel and then never wrote it. Her prompt was:

“Miles is up to something, but what? One of Miles's missions (self-appointed or otherwise) as seen through the incomplete lens of the fragments that get back to Illyan as they happen.”

At long last, the claim has been fulfilled and the story posted to AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/works/7299784

“The Equal and Opposite Reaction” tells the aftermath of Dagoola IV, seen through Illyan's eyes.

I am very sorry it took me so long to finally write it.

Title: The Princess in the Tower
Author: beatrice_otter
Fandom: Vorkosigan series
Characters: Yuri Vorbarra's Sister, Xav Vorbarra, Ezar Vorbarra, Piotr Vorkosigan
Written for: ExtraPenguin's prompt in the 2013 Bujold Ficathon.
Summary: Princess Nadezhda's civil war

On AO3

( Nadya stared out the window, embroidery forgotten in her lap. )
Title: Timing, As Always, Is Everything
Author: kaffyr
Fandom: Vorkosigan Saga
Characters: Ivan Vorpatril, Alys Vorpatril, Simon Illyan
Words: 1,011
Summary: Why in the name of everything that was, is, or will be holy, had he not thought to knock before waltzing in? A moment with Ivan Vorpatril, his mother, and his former boss.
Author's note: This was written for trobadora, during the 2015 Fandom Stocking fun. This vignette takes place during the events of "Memory," after Miles has figured out what's happening between Alys and Ilyan, but before Ivan storms in to bellow at him about that very situation.
Edited by: myself, somewhat obsessively. I take the blame for misspellings, bad sentence construction and out of character characterizations.
Disclaimer: Much as I might wish it were otherwise, nothing in the Vorkosiverse is mine. Everything is the property of Lois McMaster Bujold. I intend no copyright infringement and take no coin. I do, however, love the characters and thank Ms Bujold for letting me play in her sandbox.
