Thought up by Royce Day on the Bujold mailing list:
Honestly, there's a fanfic to written about what the poor BetanThat is a fic I would love to read.
Ambassador to Barrayar was doing during the whole mess with Cordelia's
defection to Barrayar, marriage to a war criminal, and then bringing
back Vordarian's head at the climax of the coup.
