    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

    Different choices were made. A butterfly flaps it's wings, and a hurricane begins to build. A General always has multiple strategies to his goals.

    A self indulgent AU that started from a series of what ifs revolving around the Darkling and Alina Starkova making different decisions, with more realistic, painful backstories for everyone. Featuring world building, Grisha culture, some kinks, a corruption arc, a smattering of actual Russian, and some linguistic changes to Ravkan to make me cringe less reading it.

    Content warnings posted per chapter, and archive warnings/tags will be updated as needed.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov knows what it is to lose. She has lost her home. She has lost people she loves. And when she discovers the strange power kept dormant inside of her since childhood, her life is ripped from her again. Now she is a Grisha. Now she is something unique to be used by whoever can get their hands on her first. Shu, Fjerdans, Kerch traders-she learns to see them all as enemies as she fights to survive.
    Then she meets the Darkling, the powerful and handsome Grisha in charge of the second army. A man she swears she has seen before in passing hallucinations. He has spent years searching for her since the first rumors of a girl who shone like a star rose from Keramzin, and now he has found her.
    Alina is not naïve. She knows this man wants something from her like all of these others. But still, she cannot help but be drawn to him.
    Like calls to like, after all.

    Summary

    A reimagining of Isaayu, set during Ruin and Rising. Mayu is stationed in a remote Sikurzoi posting as part of her Tavgharad training. Isaak never met Nikolai, so he re-enlists just in time for the Darkling's reign. He and his regiment are patrolling the Sikurzoi border, searching for Alina Starkov, when a landslide separates them. Isaak inadvertently wanders into Shu Han territory, where he meets Mayu. Roles are reversed as Isaak must hide his Ravkan identity from Mayu and she must learn to become a Tavgharad, for better or for worse. Can they each learn to trust a stranger, or will this encounter end in a tragedy?

    Summary

    These were supposed to be prompts, but some of them turned into summaries/drabbles, while others stated prompts.

    I highly encourage people to use the these prompts- if you do, please let me know so I can read what you write!!

     

    Please note that Dead Dove prompt/drabbles are marked in the chapter title.

    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.
