is some great fic about Csethiro Ceredin
- and her relationship with Maia
- and with her father
- and her friendship with Vedero Drazhin
- and for that matter Vedero’s developing relationship with Maia
- everyone’s relationships with Maia in fact

but mostly Csethiro and Vedero, who are super interesting and awesome!

(I might have written 2000+ words of this today; someone please talk to me about the Drazhada and Ceredada before I go completely off the deep end!)

Lemme just say:

The thing that strikes me as weird about the setup is that the Emperor doesn't seem to have an official mistress. I mean, Maia's father had a string of wives, but doesn't seem to have had a series of mistresses, or a harem.

Yet how could this be? In particular, the status of an Empress isn't terribly stable -- she can be set aside, and she doesn't retain strong ties with her birth family. Yet in European history, one of the reasons for dynastic marriages was to cement ties between nations -- which can only occur if the woman keeps a connection with her family.
