gaila: fight's losing me

Why, brain, why?

So we're planning an event for Mother's Day at where_no_woman, and since I don't have anything to write at the moment, I started drafting rules. That led naturally to writing a few prompts, and then one of them ate my brain: while enslaved by the Syndicate, Gaila had a daughter who was taken away from her, sold into slavery, or otherwise lost. So I started writing it, tentatively as a sequel to Five Times Gaila and Sulu Saved Each Other, wherein part of Gaila's motivation for rescuing slaves is to potentially liberate her daughter, even though she doesn't know where her daughter is or if she is even alive. And probably, if I manage to finish it, it will be a good story, but it will also be a heartbreaking story, and I rather wish my brain could have gotten stuck on a more lighthearted prompt.
Firstly, I love the Mother's Day idea (because god knows I need another excuse to write Winona Kirk fic).

Secondly, this: while enslaved by the Syndicate, Gaila had a daughter who was taken away from her, sold into slavery, or otherwise lost. is amazing. I cannot wait to read it.
Because you are an amazing person who does right by the stories you tell, even (especially) when they're hard and require that you pull no punches?
This. And you're way braver than I am... I had a similar idea, and ran far away from it.
