Vorkosigan Saga Fic: Timing, As Always, Is Everything

Title: Timing, As Always, Is Everything
Author[personal profile] 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 [personal profile] trobadora , during the 2015 Fandom Stocking fun. She mentioned that she liked the relationship of Alys Vorpatril and Simon Ilyan, two characters I like a great deal myself. This little vignette takes place during the events of Memory, after Miles Vorkosigan has figured out what's happening between Alys and Ilyan, but before Ivan storms in to bellow at Miles about that very situation.
Edited by: myself, somewhat obsessively. However, I take all 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.
