Marvelous. This is a great addition to the Vorkosiganverse fanfiction. Very nice journey through the years exploring the relationship between Miles and Simon.

Loved it what miles never said but should have.

So many important scenes...the one where Illyian forgives Miles hit me most deeply - like I'd been waiting for it, needing to see it, without knowing it. And the ending was warm and wonderful, the perfect ending note. I loved the whole thing.

You write so beautifully. Thank you for sharing this story.

I have loved the Vorkosigan universe for 20 years, to the point of donating at least 3 sets of the stories to various libraries where I have lived, and reading Shards of Honor to my wife to get her hooked on the series. With that background - you are in every regard worthy of sharing here. Well written, lovely spare style, with every word just right for the sentence, and nothing wasted.
thanks so much for sharing.

I'm not gonna cry, I'm not gonna cry...
Seriously. This is an incredibly amazing story - well, series of stories. I love the morphing of Miles' and Simon's relationship through the years, and the deft way you dealt with the difficult parts - I was a bit weirded out that you seemed to skip over Miles' getting fired, but reading on, I saw why. Bravo.
My favorite part, though, is at the end, where Simon gets his revenge on Miles for all of Miles' most hairbrained stunts. ""Now that, is revenge. I notified your parents that you were missing in action three times. And I notified them of your death."" Ooh, ouch, burn! I wonder what-all we might refrain from doing as youngsters if we knew how badly our parents (or uncles, whatever) were panicking on our behalf. And what sorts of revenge they may enact later...
Incidentally, excellent handling of the Cetagandan affair. I'd never quite looked at it from Simon's POV before, and he's right - the political compost heap Miles waded through is appalling. One wonders what might have happened if Miles had done as he ought and turned the baton over right away... Hm, there's a mystery there, methinks.
Anyhow, wonderfully done! This is going right to the top of my story favorites list, and, I suspect, straight to head-canon.

Lovely. Completely believable. I enjoed it.

"He came to a playful attention before Miles. "Lead on, commander." " Is when all my waff receptors were overloaded, but I managed to struggle through and d'aaawwwww! Simon is absolutely my favorite character.

Hey! I do like your stories, and this is wonderful. Because Simon and Miles would have had most of these little moments, and then they add up into something larger. And 'Uncle Simon' is not noticed nearly so much as 'Chief Illyan'. That said, I found you on AO3, and it seems easier for both of us if I just read your stuff there.
