Three's Company [Philomytha]
"Bothari's on leave," Miles put in, not for the first time today. "And Da said Uncle Simon needed a day off."

"And is this your idea of a day off, Captain?"

"I think the Regent thought it might be," was all Illyan said in response, nudging his horse on, and at least at that precise moment there was nothing obvious Piotr could see to criticise about his riding. He brought his horse in beside Miles. There would be plenty of time. Perhaps Aral had sent Illyan as a whetstone for him to sharpen his tongue upon.

And he would. The true reason Illyan was with them nagged at him like a stone in his boot, pressing into his foot with every step. He was not permitted to take his grandson with him without an armed escort. Armed against him, because he was never to be alone with the boy, had never been alone with him in the past nine years.

And They Think It's Hell [Dira Sudis]
"Cordelia," Gregor said when the conversation had come to a natural end, and then hesitated when she gave him an attentive look. She waited a moment, then tilted her head, her gaze sharpening....

Gregor nodded shallowly, conceding, and spoke the words he had rehearsed. "Miles suggested that you were the one I should ask, if I wanted to know the truth about my father. Will you tell me?"

reason free from passion [Philomytha]
On the second day of Vordarian's Pretendership, Count Vorhalas has an unwelcome visitor.

The recognition was slow, but it came before he could speak, and instead he walked slowly across the study, and stared down. Lord Aral Vorkosigan raised his head and looked directly at Vorhalas. His face was streaked with mud and his eyes were bloodshot, but their gaze was no less piercing.

"Who are you for, my lord Count?" Vorkosigan rasped, as if he had an army at his back and was not on hands and knees on Vorhalas's carpet.

Steady As She Goes.
Elena Bothari is eighteen years old when Tante Cordelia, no, Countess Vorkosigan tells her about her mother. They'd been talking about the plans for the trip to Beta Colony and Elena had brought up trying to find her mother. And then... and then she'd found out that everyone had lied to her for her entire life. That everyone had known where she had come from. That they'd lied to her every day they never told her. That they gave her to the man who tortured and raped her mother to raise as his daughter. Elena doesn't want to, or even need to, hear why they'd done it. This is Barrayar. It's about honor. It's always about honor. But no one had cared about her honor.

A Friend In Need. - Lanna Michaels (lannamichaels) - Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Five times Ivan and Gregor had sex. // Notes: Bingo! For my 2018 Trope Bingo free square, filling as "friends with benefits". There's some light bondage and also both characters are aware that they're being monitored by security, but it's not exhibitionist. Also Ivan gets off on the power imbalance. (8,055 words)

the glittering tinsel of corporeal theocracies - song_of_staying - Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
#1: It isn't fitting for a noble of Ivan's station to serve a half-wild god. (538 words)

#2: Tien will never be devout enough to receive a miracle from Emperor Gregor. When Ekaterin was younger, before Tien's brother died, she tried to make up for Tien's lukewarm agnosticism. She would pack Nikki in his stroller, and then leave him in the care of the priests' wives at the front of the temple. She would light all the candles and she would stay on her knees longer than was respectable, murmuring a litany of carefully phrased wishes. (351 words)

A Friend In Need.
Ivan's probably not the only one even when he's in the capital; Ivan's never asked. It's never been relevant. And Ivan's really glad that Gregor's gotten over whatever infatuation he'd had before and been able to fall in love again. Ivan has no objections to any of this. He doesn't know why his mother thinks he does. ...except his mother's been trying to get Ivan married, too, and Ivan's been resisting even dating for the last few years, and, uh, wow, it has been ten years since Gregor first invited him into his bedroom, hasn't it. Ivan hadn't noticed.

The Economy System
"Yes, sir. I was hoping to ask you about that." He extended his legs further in anticipation, only his heels resting lightly on the carpet. "We have very poor-quality information about the Betan and Escobaran security services, since the war. Lady Cordelia--" He felt the reaction to his words in Aral's arm, muscles turning to steel cords, pinning him back against the chair. "Absolutely not." Negri had drilled him in maintaining a calm and composed exterior under almost any set of stimuli. He would, he thought, have done Negri proud this time.
