I finished the story.

Okay. I liked it. It wasn't fraught with meaning and I have problems with some of the plot points (Ekaterin is simply not the sort of woman who would sit by and let her child *die* when she has access to the best medical care in the galaxy - if it's not available on Komarr, the Duranas have it on Escobar, and there's nothing stopping her from going to Beta Colony right away. It's also utterly unthinkable that anyone who knows Miles at all would suspect him of infidelity towards Ekaterin. Nor would Ellie even or ever try to tempt him.). but watching Draco fit in so very well on Barrayar, except for the whole uniform thing, was a lot of fun.

It was a...snack. Fun, but not a meal. And I didn't like that Ekaterin called the profesora "Aunt Helen." I also think Nikki would call his stepfather "Lord Miles". But that's just me.
