    Summary

    After the events of Ruin & Rising, Alina carves out her peaceful corner of the world. She's even happy too, until it's ripped away from her. Ravka's shaky peace is destroyed, Grisha are dying, and Alina's past haunts her in more ways than she is comfortable with.

    As she comes to understand the long shadow cast by cruelties of war, Aleksander Morozova pulls himself out of the darkness to finish what he started- protect the Grisha, defend Ravka, and rule with Alina by his side.

    Summary

    The darkling and Nikolai have sex in this one

    At the same moment where the Darkling had destroyed the fold, the act killing the sun summoner simultaneously, ridding the country of its looming threat, the prince had appeared back in court. A union that was deemed unnatural to half, benefited the other half for its religious nature. The starless saint, loved and feared by most, now married to the illegitimate last-born son of the Lantsov family.
    How both sides got what they wanted was a mystery to all. Many had missed the ongoing alliance that had passed the test of time, stretching from the first time Nikolai had met Alina, to the day he saw her body burn on a funeral pier. And yet, it had been the most balanced rule Ravka had ever seen. Perhaps the foxes belonged with the shadows.

    Summary

    “You might make me your wife, but I cannot love you,” Alina tells him, tone as burning as the Fjerdan frost, the words torn straight from the smoking ashes the loss of her childhood love left behind in her heart. And yet, despite all of her biting contempt, the statement still makes something twinge in her chest. Distant remains from a naïve, young mapmaker entranced with the attractive older man pulling her in like a spider into his web of lies. “I won’t. Ever.”

    “Oh, Alina,” he says, a soft chuckle vibrating from his chest, his wretched, beautiful face looking at her with such belittlement that it makes her blood boil even hotter. “Little pet. Who said anything about love?”

     

    Alina lost the war, and has to deal with the consequences

    Summary

    An alternate ending to r&r, in which second chances prevail! And quite a bit of fluff.

    Non canon-compliant, ignores kos and row except for a bit dialogue and plot points. Hopefully somewhat regular updates!

    Summary

    Nikolai couldn’t shroud a room in darkness like the Darkling. He couldn’t create that black abyss out of nothing. What he could do, however, was control the shadows. Not the darkness. Not in the pitch black. But give him the slightest bit of light, and he could pull them right from where they lay.

    He would stand in the sun for hours, stealing his own shadow and letting the tendrils of black smoke twist and dance around his fingers. Nikolai reveled in the way the other Grisha looked at him fearfully as he walked along the grounds in the midday sun, without a shadow.

    In his isolation from his peers, they became his only friend.

    There were days when he startled awake from the pain of his own claws digging into his skin. When he woke up with the feeling of falling stuck in his mind. Days where no matter how hard he stared at his books, he couldn’t decipher the words. On those days, his shadows were his only source of comfort. He’d close off the room to all light except a single candle and pull every shadow to form a warm cocoon of darkness around himself. It was there he felt safest.

    Summary

    Ruin and Rising AU where Alina accepts the Darkling’s hand and they work to repair political ties, protect the Grisha and usher in an era of peace.

    Alina learns palace etiquette, as well as royal lessons to become the new queen of Ravka, save for the fact that her intended technically hasn’t proposed to her yet. She also hones her summoning with a very much alive Baghra and grapples with an encroaching dark power...

    Meanwhile, the Darkling works to settle national unrest, pursue his plans to deal with the Shadow Fold and somehow get his mind off the woman who nearly tempted him into ruin. Though try as he might, he cannot seem to keep his hands and his heart away.

    They fight and fuss and flit around each other, and fuck like animals under the roof of the palace.

    Alina flirts first.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov hid her power from the Grisha examiners when she was eight, but decided to practice her power in secret. Her best friend and fellow orphan, Mal, finds out and struggles to shed his anti-Grisha opinions to keep her hidden. Their plan works until the Darkling increases his search efforts for a Sun Summoner and retests her at Keramzin, where thirteen-year-old Alina's powers are discovered. Despite her protests, Alina is dragged to the Little Palace to train with the Darkling and the Second Army.

    - Alina and Mal's conversation in R&R about what would have happened if she was discovered at eight (and the rest of the book) absolutely wrecked my heart, so here is an alternative take.-
