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.

Going by this history of the Vorkosigan Saga


and this Wikipedia article


The Legion of Superheroes is active during Miles' probable lifetime - the stories are always set 1000 years after publication, and members come from the future to recruit Superboy in 1958. Miles would be about eighty-five years old then. But there are already plenty of people with weird powers around at that point, the Legion just gets them more organised and working as a team. Obviously Vorkosiganverse history needs a few changes to accommodate lots of alien species and people with superpowers, but I leave that as an exercise for the reader...

Moving On - Four Chapters are up of this post-divorce fic.

Ivan's been divorced from Martya for nearly a year and is mostly content. But the return of Eve (the spy he doesnt know watched over him when he was dealing with Martya's betrayal) leads to repercussions all round - some good, some bad, some confusing. :)

This is a lot lighter than the divorce fic (Part 1 and 2) but with some angsty moments!
