    Summary

    It is not wise to ignore a Siren’s call, but it is far more dangerous to answer one not meant for your ears.

    Zoya Nazyalensky is more than just a girl. Though she was raised on the farmlands of Chepek under the care of Lilyana Garen, she cannot hide what she truly is. When the King of Ravka falls ill, and a ship carrying the Crown Prince home passes near her shores, Zoya may take the monarchy’s future into her own hands. As a creature of the sea, she attempts to lure away the Prince, but a sailor dives in to save him. Zoya is forced to keep the sailor from drowning and loses her opportunity to kill the Prince that same night. Desperate to see her plan through, Zoya travels with Nikolai, Captain of the Volkvolny, to Os Alta, where they will meet the next King of Ravka. Could it be possible for a friendship to form under such unexpected circumstances? Could something bigger lay in store?

    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

    Bros get fake married to protect each other from gold diggers. Bros catch feelings for each other. What happens next will warm your heart.

    After a joke from Genya goes terribly horribly miserably wrong, Zoya and Nikolai get fake married “To Save Ravka”. Of course they’re only doing this for their country. No feelings here. None. Zilch. Zero. N. O. N. E. (They both absolutely have feelings). Cue the romantic comedy adventure full of misunderstandings and pining where everyone around our two idiots can see they’re clearly had over heels for each other!

    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

    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

    When Wylan fled for his life, he hadn't expected to end up working in the service of King Nikolai. He had expected to be blackmailed in working in the Grisha workshop, working on a weapon to defeat the dreaded Shu super soldiers. He especially hadn't expected his partner would be a charming fabrikator that would steal away his heart one conversation at a time. If Wylan only could read his soulmark, he would know if they were destined to grow old together or not.

    A what-if story with Wylan fleeing to Ravka. With Jesper attending the Little Palace and being able to use his powers. With two boys falling in love no matter the setting.

    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

    There is nothing for the second prince.

     

    For years, Nikolai had lived behind his brother’s shadow. But when he made a name for himself and acquired the people’s approval, his older brother Vasily saw him as a threat to his throne and he sought help from someone who knew a thing or two for dark magic.

    Now cursed with the darkness wielded by the Black Heretic, Nikolai is given a solution to end his torment—a dagger to the heart by the hand of the one he loved.

     

    The storm always rages, but at the eye it has calmness.

     
    Zoya was a soldier of the Second Army; an extraordinary Squaller who fought alongside both humans and Grisha against enemies that threatened to invade Ravka, and who had a gift of delivering her words with sharp wit and poison. She was fiercely loyal to her country and to the Second Army, but she found it tested when she was faced by questioning flashes of memories that seemed too real.

    Troubled by the visions she sees from time to time, she tries to seek answers from other people only to conclude it as a figment of her imagination when she has no explanation for it. But not until she finds a hidden estate in the middle of the woods.

    Summary

    Food. Friends. Family. Those are the three things required for Lunar New Year. But in his new life in Ravka, Kuwei doesn't have any of them. So of course, he resolves to at least blow some things up. Because fireworks are also an essential part of the festival. Or at least that's what he tells Leoni and Adrik when he ropes them into his scheme.

    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!
