What a contrast, yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

When Lois was originally writing Shards of Honor she overshot the ending and wound up cutting off material that years later became the first few chapters of Barrayar. So yes, there was originally more to it.

As you've deduced, "Aftermaths" was a short story that took place in the same setting. It never really stood up on its own, so was added to later editions of Shards.

As for an actor who could play Aral, think of Oliver Reed back in his Three Musketeers days (early 1970s). He also played a character in a 70s version of The Prince and the Pauper named (ahem) Miles.

I have to admit, there are times I've wished Amelia would just whap Emerson with that umbrella and tell him to dial it back a bit!
