Title: The Family You Choose
Characters: Timoteo Vongola, his Guardians
Summary: It is time for Timoteo to choose his Guardians, and he's determined to do things his way.
Notes: This fic is part of the Generations project with [personal profile] branchandroot. This fic begins the arc "A House Divided," which focuses on the Ninth and his relationship with his Guardians and Xanxus. This project owes its inspiration to [personal profile] jetsam/[livejournal.com profile] thephoenixboy, who correctly guessed which fic was mine in the first round of [livejournal.com profile] khr_undercover, and requested a fic featuring Timoteo and his Guardians as her reward. I don't believe she quite expected her request to spawn an entire humongous arc, but what can I say? It was a provocative prompt! *grin* General audiences, 6578 words. For a character guide, see the appendix (warning: spoilers for the arc!).

'Is it already time to be thinking of that?' Timoteo asked, to make time for his mind to race ahead and turn over the possibilities. 'You're still very young, Mother.' 'How kind of you to say,' she said, eyes glinting, not without humor. 'I said that we were ready to confirm you as my heir, not that I was ready to step down. Don't get too far above yourself.' )
