Fic rec!

You guys. You need to read this fic. Seriously. If you're a fan of the Vorkosigan saga, you need to read this--it's EPIC. And happy! I do enjoy Miles-whumping (AKA canon) as much as the next person, but sometimes you just want a truly happy ending.

Forward Momentum by bracketyjack (story link goes to AO3)
Summary: LMB famously has a rule-of-thumb in writing, especially where poor old Miles is concerned -- when in doubt, have the worst possible thing happen. But suppose that were turned around, and instead the best thing happened? or best things, unstoppably, in Milesian droves, and for pretty much everyone?

"Let's see what happens."

I still can't bring myself to re-read Cryoburn--the ending made me bawl like a little bitch--so this is my new canon. What? I can't hear you over the rushing river of de Nile. :-)

Forward Momentum made me almost glad for the cold I've been fighting for five days. I love this fic and I shall hug it and squeeze it and keep in my favorites for all time.
