Prompt: I was thought to be 'stuck up.' I wasn't. I was just sure of myself. This is and always has been an unforgivable quality to the unsure.

Author’s Notes: The minute I got my prompt, I knew I’d be writing for Lwaxana Troi. The prompt just screamed her name for me. Which is utterly awesome, because I simply don’t write enough for her. That I inserted the Bev/Deanna relationship is just kind of a given, to be honest. Truth be told, this plot was NOT my first plot. I’d started another story a while back, but that idea just wasn’t gelling for me. So, after struggling for a long time with that other plot [which will get used at some point down the line], this idea just gelled in and of itself. This was partially because of listening to Pink’s “Ave Mary-A” while on a long plane trip, but moreso because of listening to the A Perfect View
CD by Bound For Severance, particularly the track “Burial of the Saints”. At that point the story just became a frantic pounding of keys for me to get it out. The tanka that opens the story was also written by me, as it’s a favorite poem form of mine, but is supposed to be attributed to Mr. Homn within the story’s context.

Timeline Notes: The basics of Deanna and Lwaxana’s storylines and backgrounds from the series stands, tho’ this story does combine information from the various novels and comic books, as well. The differences are that Deanna and Beverly got married in 2370 and had their daughter, Kestra Felisa Howard Troi, two years later in 2372. A year after this, Lwaxana’s son was born. All of the Lwaxana background information, including the name Barin for her son, comes from here
Dedication: My muses, for always giving me something to test my boundaries…
