This week's prompt: mothers
Wow, I completely flaked last week. I am so sorry! I guess I'll blame it on the end of the semester. (Hey, it's a convenient excuse. :)
Aaaaanyway, that's also my excuse for taking the easy way out this week and making the prompt mothers. Because it's Mother's Day here in the U.S. - and Happy Mother's Day to any of you who fit that description! - and there are some seriously formidable mothers in the various Bujold 'verses: Cordelia, Alys, Ekaterin, Ista. Hmm. TSK-verse mothers haven't left quite as big an impression on me, but I know they're there. So this challenge is to write something focused on any of them.
You know the drill: fics of all length are welcome, as are art and icons. And if you don't find this prompt inspirational, past prompts are always available for inspiration as well.
