Fic: Battlelines, Part Fifteen: Family Values
So, back to my most egregiously IP WIP! I have been trying to get back into this one ever since I finished Protect and Survive, but have found myself butting my head up against that brick wall again; so, I took a step back and approached it from a slightly different angle. In this part, Bambera is reminded that the values of the people who live in the Thirteen Worlds are a little different from her own, even those of "good guys" like Ancelyn. And a bit of setup for some plot yet to come, involving yet more original characters...
The recent debate over warnings has made me seriously consider what I'm writing and what effect it could have on other people, so I guess I need to say that in this part a bit of war crimes type violence and the sort of sexual violence that goes with it is at least implied if not directly shown, so beware. I don't know if I'm being overly cautious here, but God knows I don't want to cause anybody any real life distress if I can help it.
