BSG'78 Fanfic: "We Also Serve"

This is the story I wrote for rarewomen 2012.  It's the first time I've written Battlestar Galactica (1978), though I've loved the series since I was small.

My recipient, penknife, requested “any Cassiopeia story,” preferably “Cassiopeia and Athena bonding,” “Cassiopeia/Starbuck,” “characters drinking together, characters solving problems together,” and “relatively happy endings,” with Cassiopeia “not ashamed” of her past; I found it very challenging, but eventually a canon window opened to all the components.  I'm curious how the piece may appear to someone properly in BSG'78 fandom (as I drift on the farthest fringes).  If I write BSG again, what should I keep in mind?

My thanks to malinaldarose, wiliqueen, hearts_blood and [personal profile] skieswideopen for encouragement!  Special thanks to Malinaldarose and Hearts-blood for beta-reading on a tight deadline!
