Summary:
There is more than just a scientific breakthrough on the table when the second Ariane Emory meets with a spacer of humble origins.
Or, as the Author's note put it, "a young woman confronting Ari II with an important discovery and suspicions about Ari's part in her life."

Review:
This is one of those stories where you really have to have read the canon to really get it; if you haven't read Cyteen, it probably won't make a lick of sense. But if you have, it's brilliant. There was a little something, a backstory sub-plot about a certain character, that always tickled at me...always made me wonder. This fic fills in that hole, and does so marvelously with an original character's vibrant first-person narrative. The original character, Grette Pedersen, fits seamlessly into Cherryh's greater Alliance-Union universe, and has a unique voice. Confident, smart, and clever, she's a great conversational foil for Ari, and I really enjoyed Grette's story and it's addition to Cherryh's world.
