Okay ... from memory

ZZ1: Lord
ZZ2: Vorkasagn (Miles)
YYY: Nikki (Ekaterin’s son)
Bonus #1: EEE: Ekaterin
Bonus #2: WWW: Prince XXX: Hamlet
Bonus #3 Aaa-bbb: Fast-penta (truth serum), he was a ghost
Bonus #4: Shakespeare play in the book Mirror Dance where Miles plays all the characters in it to outwit the fast-penta interrogation.
Bonus #5: CCC DDD Lieutenant Vor-something, wants to wed Kat

Well, you did answer the question and get the next quote as well as the principal :sherlock:

As for the bonuses
OK for #1, #2 and #3 (if anyone could answer this one, it had to be you ;) )
the answers your provide under 4 and 5 in fact constitute the full answer to #4 : CCC DDD is indeed the guy who wanted to wed Kat, so it is OK if you don't remember the name (Vormoncrief) and you did explain why fast-penta is useless on Miles (indeed he defeated it by reciting a whole play by Shakespeare).
BTW, it is not in Mirror Dance, but this does not invalid your answer to bonus #4, since I only asked why fast-penta did not work on Miles, not where.

So that makes a total of 3 :sherlock:

Conversely, for bonus #5 one has to specify what play this is (not Hamlet) and in what book Miles recites it.

And bonus #6, for a whole :sherlock: : in a still different book of the Vorkosigan Saga a few lines of the (not Hamlet) play are quoted.
Who quotes them and in which book ?

So there are still 1 and 1/2 points pending.

Anyway, you get 3 full points and the next question ! Congratulations !

Well, well, well...
This is a first ! It is indeed the first time, unless I am mistaken, that a bonus is found before the main question.

All three answers to the main question are wrong !

Of course, XXX does not appear as "mother" in the quote, since it is not Miles talking to Mark, but XXX indeed represents their mother, and YYY is indeed "betan".

So you get the bonus ! There is no point finding the exact form of XXX used in the quote, I did say it was enough to identify the character.

I won't update the sherlocks till the main quote is found, but don't worry, I will remember your 1/2 point.
