    Summary

    Kaz stopped, mulling the thought he’d come to over, rolling it like a pebble in his mind and inspecting every nick and scratch.

    And he smiled, knowledge glowing hot and bright, a weapon he would forge to his favor.

    Blood would spill on the streets of Ketterdam, as it did every night. But soon enough, it would be blood he’d earned, blood he’d fought for.

    And it would be his knife that would part the flesh of the rich and drain their power to claim as his.

    OR

    It's time for another Crow's heist.

    Summary

    In a story of star-crossed brothers, where Kaz's grisha powers save Jordie but don't save him from Pekka Rollins, Kaz becomes the Bastard Saint of the Barrel; Rollins personal Healer and the most feared Grisha to haunt Ketterdam's seedier streets. This upsets Jordie quite a bit. In an attempt to pay off Kaz's indenture, and save his brother from the threat of Jurda Parem, Jordie Rietveld, Dregs Lieutenant and confidence man, makes a deal with Jan Van Eck to perform an impossible heist.

    Naturally, Kaz, busybody extraordinaire, is not about to let his brother screw up in a foreign land alone. He's going to steal his brother's heist and one Bo Yul-Buyur --or his nearest relative, whatever works best --and save his idiot big brother from a Fjerdan prison. And if this means running out on Rollins -well, thirty thousand Kruge should be more than enough money to pay his way out trouble. Right?

    Summary

    Nina Zenik has spent the last year with Kaz Brekker's smuggling crew, running illegal materials across the Outer Rim. She's a long way from the Jedi Padawan she was, but she can't go back to the Republic without finding and freeing the Mandalorian warrior Matthias Helvar.

    When Kaz brings her along on another job, none of them could foresee how their lives will change. Rumors of a weapon to target Force-sensitives lead the crew of the Ketterdam across the galaxy, racing against time and their own conflicting interests.

    The future is shifting, but one thing is certain—whatever they do, they do together.

    Summary

    Several stories detailing the lives of the Crows right after the ending of Crooked Kingdom. There are time jumps and, taking a leaf out of Leigh Bardugo's book, each chapter is told from a different character perspective. This deals with found family, dealing with trauma, and working through things together.

    Note: Nina will not get chapters since her perspective after Crooked Kingdom is detailed in King of Scars. She will make an appearance though, never fear! Also any of the events in the King of Scars duo-logy will not be covered in this fic because I haven't read them yet so if it doesn't follow, you know why.

    Summary

    Kaz Brekker had no daemon, people in the Barrel whispered.

    He sold his soul to the devil in exchange for eternal life.

    He kept his daemon locked in a safe so nobody could use her against him.

    He was a demon, a ghost, a malevolent spirit, something out of a children’s story. Something other and soulless, to be avoided and feared from a distance.

    Inej didn’t believe those stories.

    Summary

    Inej snorts at him and aims a half-hearted kick at the box. Coffee table. Whatever. “Get up and do something, then.”
    “Like what?”
    “Move in,” Inej says simply. “As Nina keeps saying, you’ve got way too many boxes in here.”

    In which Kaz finally gets a coffee table. Featuring: old photos, copious amounts of dust and an excess of takeout.

    Summary

    “You know, when you start to think about it, it really is quite concerning that Kaz makes all our coffee,” Nina muses, but accepts a plateful of brownies just the same. “I mean, there’s nothing to say he doesn’t keep a bottle of arsenic beside the honey on the top shelf.”

    The inevitable coffeeshop AU, featuring hijinks, angst, and one deeply cynical barista.

    Summary

    He’s never seen such desperation in such a young face. Wide-eyed, expression attempting to be schooled into that of neutrality, of bravery, but their hand shakes from where it grips the wood that has gone soft with rain and time. Their bottom lip trembles. Swathed in a dark cloak that hangs off of them in a second skin, that no doubt hides some sort of weapon. A bloodied scrape trickles from an abrasion on their cheekbone, shining against bronze skin. They’re hunched over. Injured.

    Running from something.

    Summary

    If you asked around about Kaz Brekker, people would say he truly was born of The Barrel. He had grave dirt under his nails, smog in his eyes, and harbor water in his lungs.

    Only one of these things was true, if you asked Kaz himself.

    But now, the thing in his lungs will kill him surely. Slowly. Choking out bloody petals until he was a desperate feral thing that would rather die than let four words fall from his lips: I love you Inej.

    Kaz Brekker was a Barrel boy through and through, and Barrel boys grab the thorny things in their lungs and they pull.

    Summary

    “Then what would you use the voices of the dead for?”

    Kaz's face clouded and he looked back down to his papers, avoiding her steady gaze.

    And then Inej understood. Kaz hadn't been thinking of ways to use Nina's new powers for anything sinister or illegal or even for monetary gain. For once, it hadn't been about a job.

    He had been thinking only of his brother.

    -
    A story of ghosts and greed, loss and forgiveness.

    Summary

    “This is pretty,” Jesper comments, picking up the tie pin. “What is it? A present?”
    Kaz looks back down at the papers. Maybe it’s weapons, he thinks absently. Whenever there’s a secret, it’s always weapons.
    “The crows,” he says dispassionately, careful to moderate his tone. “They hoard things.”

    In which Inej starts to leave a variety of trinkets on Kaz's desk, for no reason he can discern.

    Summary

    Inej Ghafa is a principal dancer of the Kerch National Ballet, haunted by a past she'd rather forget. Kaz Brekker is a mob boss who holds the city in the palm of his hand.

    Perhaps if all were right with the world, two such people would never meet. Or perhaps fate will always give those who need each other a push in the right direction.

    It begins, as so many things in Ketterdam do, with a murder.

    Summary

    “Only the highest of stakes for such a competition,” said Nina, shooting Inej a look afterward. Inej understood what Nina meant immediately.

    “Loser buys everyone waffles,” said the Wraith with a smirk.

    Summary

    “Okay. Okay.” Inej sucks in a few deep breaths. The knife is glowing a shade of ominous orange-red, and she eyes it with a sort of tentative confidence. “I can do this. I’ve survived the Menagerie, and I’ve survived staring at Kaz’s hideous outfits everyday for two years. I can do this.”

    “You think my outfits are hideous?”

    +++

    six of crows au, in which the stab wound inej received before the ship voyage is a little more serious, nina can't heal it, cauterization is necessary, and kaz is somehow roped into the entire thing, undergoing more emotions that he initially bargained for.
