    Summary

    Alina rises from the bed and moves through the space. The man plays the piano. An angry and sorrowful melody, one of a man so shunned and deprived of society and love. Alina should know better when she moves closer. Sneaking upon him. 

    The Phantom is too engrossed to notice her inching closer. 

    Alina pulls off the mask. 

    Wrong choice.

    Summary

    Professor Inej Ghafa is as secretive as they come. As far as anyone knows, she has no spouse, no children, nothing. She never talks about her home life, and the only pictures in her office are of her and a few other professors. Kaz Brekker, however? The complete opposite. Everyone knows he has a thousand pictures of his family in his office, but he never allows students in, so no one's seen them, and there are regular betting pools on how many times he says "my wife" each lecture. He describes this Mrs. Brekker simply as "perfect", and his students have made a game of drawing composite sketches of her. But when the two professors are spotted on a date together, they face unseen repercussions from a secret they'd kept for a reason.

    Summary

    Alina fails to hide her powers when the Grisha examiners visit.

    'I would have gone to the Little Palace and been spoiled and pampered. I would have dined off golden plates, and I never would have struggled to use my power. It would have been like breathing, the way it always should have been. And in time, I would have forgotten Keramzin.'

    Summary

    The Black Heretic has ravaged the Siberian Taiga communities for years as a ruthless raider. He and his band of Shadows are feared for good reason: they take what they want and leave everything else to burn. They say he's untouchable - that he made a deal with the devil for his success in war. He has only one goal: secure a good life for those he protects - however he can. Happiness is for men who can afford it, and the price has always been too high... until he meets her.

    Alina has lived as the adopted daughter of the Oretsev family since she was a child. She knows her place and is content with her prospects in life. That changes, however, when her adopted father makes a deal with the infamous Black Heretic: safety for their community... for a bride. Alina must now find her way in a new home with a new husband, a new language, a new community, and a new way of life.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov, the star employee at Lantsov Labs, is dismayed to discover she has been assigned to partner with the disgraced son of the CEO on a special project. But as they work together, she begins to realize his reputation is entirely undeserved. He's a brilliant scientist, a dedicated worker, and a loyal friend. And-- okay, yes, he's also incredibly attractive. Not that it means anything. She would NEVER date a coworker...

    Summary

    Zoya has just become a principal dancer in NYC Ballet. Her partner is Nikolai Lantsov, son of a retired ballerina and a rich (very, very rich) man. The dancing is easy — after all, that's what they're paid for — but all that practise and just maybe the physical contact is pushing them closer together. Zoya can't forget her past, and Nikolai's is catching up with his, but they're — hopefully — too stubborn to let go of each other.

    it's a modern AU and I just tried to put in the characters where they fit because so many side characters are ignored and that is sad; also there may be random references to the grishaverse so just keep looking for them i guess

    potentially also in the same universe as my future darklina fic

    Summary

    The Shadow Fold has endured for more than six hundred years. Now in the twenty-first century, the Darkling serves under greedy politicians and rulers as a five-star General of the Second Army. Until he can make his move towards power, until he can finally find his fabled Sun Summoner.

    Alina Starkov is just an entry-level intelligence analyst for the Ravkan First Army, watching massive screens of satellite footage for hours on end. Mostly handling documentation, cross-referencing incoming intel, outlining small skirmishes on digital maps. The minutia kind of stuff. She'd be the first to tell you that she isn't anyone special, certainly not Grisha.

    Or: A modern retelling of Shadow and Bone.

    Summary

    "You killed my friends, you killed my family, you force-fed me a demon, and you tried to kill me. Why am I here?"

    Pressed beneath him on the bed, his companion’s fingers reached up to map the tired, troubled lines on the King’s countenance.

    "You killed my friends, you killed my family, you killed my demons, and you did kill me. Why am I here?"

    Nikolai rested their foreheads together, entwined their fingers, and breathed in the chill wintery scent of shadows that the moonlight couldn't dispel. He sighed.

    "This, us, now," he tapped the smooth pale planes of the chest below his, "May be the worst thing I have ever done."

    The Darkling smiled sympathetically. "There will be others, in time."

     

    Aka: The one in which Nikolai is determined to salvage as much as he can from the ruins of the Civil War, including an old understanding with an incredibly pissed-off Aleksander. If anyone can do it, it's the new King of Ravka.

    Summary

    Kaz Brekker, Inej Ghafa, and Jesper Fahey crossed the Shadow Fold to bring back a package back to Ketterdam: Alina Starkova, the Sun Summoner.

    What happens when she willingly leaves Ravka for Ketterdam?

    (Work in progress. I am a student and trying my best. Huge canon divergence. We get to the points, just in a fun way. More of a self indulgent AU that I've been thinking about.)

    Summary

    Instead of Alina and Mal being saved from the whaler by Sturmhond's crew, Mal is accidentally killed by the sea whip and Alina is saved alongside Genya from the Darkling.
    They decide to return together to the Little Palace for more information on how to defeat the Darkling (and every small decision diverge the plot further from the original books, into a completely different outcome). They find out that the villains have their reasons and are not soulless as they are thought to be, and the people that others look up to respectfully are actually the real villains.
    Alina is bolder than in the original series because we want the plot to go forward in a more logical way - and also the protagonist deserves a real character arc.
