    Summary

    Having moved to California after being freed from Virginia's foster system, Nina is missing her life on the east coast, and most importantly, Waffle House. Horrified that her Californian friends Inej and Jesper have never even heard of the best waffle chain ever, Nina takes them on an epic road trip across America in search of some decent breakfast food, along with the chance to get with the girl she’s always had a crush on, a boy running from his father, and maybe a taste of her old life again.

    Wylan wants nothing more than to run. He feels trapped living with a father who is ashamed to have a moron for a son. When Jan Van Eck announces that Wylan will be studying at an all-boys boarding school in a small town in Virginia, he feels a flicker of hope for a better future, but the road leading up to it is long and dangerous.

    for the grishaverse big bang 2020!

    Summary

    In a city that never sleeps, a true darkness is beginning to wake; it prowls the city, feeding on the pure terror of its inhabitants - and Alina Starkov is at the centre of it all. As her powers grow, so does her magical attraction to the mystical, criminal underbelly of the city… and to the man that shows her it all.

    Though it contains elements of both Alarkling and Malina in terms of dynamics, this is not a story based on ships/ship wars nor romance. The focus is on Alina solving murders and working through her powers.

    Summary

    He wasn't going to survive the night, a voice in the back of Zoya's mind whispered. She was going to lose him, as she lost all the others.

    Held tight in Alina's arms, the baby looked tiny and deathly pale. He was barely breathing, barely moving, but when Alina bent to press her lips to his forehead, he brightened. He opened his eyes, looked at her for a long moment, and screamed. The sound was otherworldy. He was stronger than he looked.

    It took all the strength Zoya had left to call out, so weakly, "Alina." She held her arms out, manicured fingers grasping at the air. "I want my son."

    A Prohibition-Era Southern Gothic AU filled with mystery beasts and dirty doings. Mind the tags!

    Summary

    Alina Starkov expected to wake up on a ship sailing across the True Sea, one that would take her far from Ravka, far from the Darkling and his mad crusade. Instead, she awoke in Os Alta to a devastating truth: the war was won nearly a century ago, her first love was dead, and she remembered nothing.

    Not even that, as part of her surrender, she agreed to a political marriage.

    Summary

    "Miss Starkov, are you aware of how distracting you are in my class?"

    My lips parted open, frozen as he turned around, bracing himself against the edge of his desk and leaning back slightly. His quartz eyes glimmered as he evaluated every inch of me in a painfully obvious manner, as if he were reading me like I was words on a page. I forced myself to speak. "I-I'm so sorry I came in late, but I have perfect attendance sir, this has never happened before and I'm a very dedicated student," I stumbled over my words frantically, my throat painfully tight in fear. He laughed, a dry, raspy chuckle that shut me up almost immediately. "That's not what I was referring to, Alina," he hummed, the sound of my name rolling off his tongue sending goosebumps down my arms. It was almost... seductive.

    Summary

    An avid theatre kid, Jesper plays the lead in Ketterdam High's production of We Will Rock You, a jukebox musical featuring Queen's best songs. He's ecstatic, not only because he's never had such a huge role before, but because We Will Rock You is one of his favorite musicals. It's a dream come true, and he couldn't be happier—except that the rest of the cast isn't as enthusiastic as he is, and when he takes center stage, bullying from his classmates couldn't be worse for an openly bisexual black boy.
    Devastated that he was forced to quit band, high school sophomore Wylan signs up for tech with encouragement from his best friend Kuwei—and it's certainly not also because joining tech means working on the same show as Jesper Fahey, the junior he's looked up to since he was a freshman. Still, there's a lot of things he has to keep secret, and he wonders what this will mean for him as he grows closer to this strange club of drama kids.

    Summary

    With the rumours of miracles and new cults, Alina has no idea what's on the horizon for Ravka. And she doesn't know when she'll see the dawn again.

    (Or just how I think she'd react to the events in King of Scars)

    Summary

    Three years have passed since Alina and the Darkling conspired to overthrow the crown. Over the years support has remained mixed, made all the more complicated by Nikolai's escape and the revelation that he had been an unwilling puppet king. With wars on both sides of the border and threats from Lantsov loyalists an almost daily occurrence, Alina and the Darkling could almost be forgiven for overlooking the dangers presented by Ravka's various cults.

    That is, until one particular cult decides it's had enough of seeing its Saint align herself with with someone like the Darkling. Refusing to accept the alliance, their only answer is to separate Alina from him and force her to see sense via any means possible.

    Well-hidden, deranged, and more fanatical then either of them could expect, the cult has Alina at its mercy. Once more she finds herself playing the role of spy while trying to endure increasing dehumanisation and violence. Meanwhile, the Darkling will do everything within his power to ensure she returns to rule by his side -- and when dealing with such extensive power, it seems inevitable that both of them are led into a horrific situation beyond all comprehension.

    Summary

    He could watch her all day.

    Being a soloist with the Os Alta Ballet Company, that was saying quite a bit. Though the rest of the company had gone home for the night some hours ago, here he sat, watching her, both still in their leotards and tights.

    A ballet AU crossing the entire Grishaverse, though mostly focusing on Nikolai and Zoya. Less a plotted story than a collection of drabbles.

    Summary

    It’s been a year since the events of the grisha trilogy. Alina has volunteered to take up an undercover assignment for the Little Palace: find out about the gang activity in Kerch’s bustling capital, Ketterdam, and see whether Ravka can strike a deal with Kerch.

    After joining the Dregs under the name of Wylan Starev and getting close with Inej and Jesper, Alina decides to take action after she sees their mistreatment by the other members of the gang, and invites them to spend time in Ravka with her.

    But things aren’t going to go the way Alina’s planned. Cracks are beginning to show in her facade, and the mission is taking a toll. She feels something else in her veins too, something that she hasn’t felt since starting the orphanage. Can Alina make it to the end of her assignment? Or will the truth about her be revealed?

    Summary

    Alina Starkov has never been impulsive, and even less decisive. Her decision to take Professor Morozova up on his proposition is the complete opposite: stupid, thoughtless, reckless. But if she can guarantee herself easy A's all semester and gain some much lacking experience in the boy department to help her woo Mal Oretsev, it can't turn out as badly as she thinks it will. After all, he only wants one thing in return.

    Summary

    modern college au, Nikolai and Zoya have a huge last semester project to work on, and Nikolai swears he can get it done by Thursday if Zoya accompanies him to his father's party.
    ---
    Nikolai raised both brows at her. Because of course, he'd been complaining about his father's party for weeks- how the old man insisted Nikolai be there for the cameras, and how desperate Nikolai was not to go.
    "I need a date," he said again, a little more urgently now, his hazel eyes boring into her.
    "Take Tolya," Zoya replied, cocking a brow at him.
    "I doubt my tux will fit him,"
    "Buy him a dress."
    "Then what will I wear?"

    Summary

    Alina's story is one of pain as she sits in the Cold Palace contemplating where she had gone wrong. First an orphan, then a princess, and finally an abandoned Queen. The Nazyalenskys wanted a pawn to marry Vasily, not their treasure - Zoya - passing her off as a bastard daughter, much more docile and subsiverant.

    The higher one rises, the more one has to fall. Finally, she receives a glass of hemlock wine, with the order from none other but her husband. It had taken eight years for him to remember that she should've been dealt with.

    Except the hemlock doesn't exactly kill her. Alina finds herself young again, and she knows now what she must do.

    Inspired by a story called 锦绣未央. It's filled with cliches and political ploys and I thought I'd take a shot at making it less cliched because I find politics and the part of figuring out all extremely interesting. Please tell me what you think in the comments and leave a kudos if you liked it!
