* In ''[[Literature/VorkosiganSaga Memory]]'', Miles has a moment of surprise when he realizes his Aunt Alys (widowed since shortly before Miles's birth) has started sleeping with his former boss, ex-[[TheSpymaster Spymaster]] Simon Illyan. When Alys's son Ivan finds out, he has reaction B, and the reader gets a nice dose of reaction C from the interplay.
** Unlike most instances of this trope, Miles and Ivan are adults. Ivan's reaction has more to do with: a) the fact that [[{{Squick}} this is his]] ''[[{{Squick}} mother]]'' we're talking about, and b) the fact that ''both'' Simon and Alys have public reputations for being extremely prim and proper (well, for Simon it's more "respectable" than "prim"), and [[NaughtyByNight what they're doing together]] is... not.
