    Summary

    Paris, 1961.

    Zoya Nazyalensky was left with no choice but to work for the organization that held her family's fate in their hands. Even as she rose through the ranks and gained respect, failure was still inevitable. And when she happens to blow one crucial mission because of her poor judgment, the reputation she’d worked so hard to build crumbles to nothing.

    Nikolai Lantsov prided himself as an expert of "complicated acquisition", until he was caught by the CIA and offered an ultimatum: work for them or spend his life behind bars. But after failing the last mission that would have finally let him walk free, his contract with them is extended.

    The two spies are forced to work together to thwart a threat to world peace. Despite knowing it can only end in tragedy, they find their history pushing them dangerously close to each other again, even letting their bruised hearts hope that there could be something for them after all this.

    aka: enemies to lovers, fake marriage, there was only one bed, mutual pining, and lots of angst

    Summary

    Journalists Nikolai Lantsov and Zoya Nazyalensky worked together for years, and despite their unorthodox dynamic, they were inseparable. But life and stubbornness got the best of them, and after a dramatic falling out, they lost touch. Despite having many friends in common and working in the same field, it has been a few years since they have spoken.

    Nikolai has risen the ranks at the Os Kervo Chronicle, and after working on a dangerous assignment near the Sikurzoi, Zoya is back in Ravka as an executive at the Os Alta Times.

    Then Nikolai is tricked into attending an engagement party, only to discover that he knows both members of the happy couple.

    Zoya is engaged to Aleksander Morozova, editor-in-chief of celebrity gossip magazine The Darkling, and Nikolai is not impressed with her choice. But now that they are back in each other’s lives, both Zoya and Nikolai have to cope with feelings they have tried to forget.

    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

    Inej, Kaz, Wylan and Jesper get a very important invitation to the betrothal celebration of a certain Nina Zenik... angst, fluff, and yes, dancing, ensues between the King of the Barrel and the Queen of the Seas.

    This is part two of my kanej x cowboy like me series! I would highly recommend reading part one first before you dive into this :)

    Spoilers for RoW and obviously the Soc duology. Most of this is canon compliant because I love to play by the rules (except that we forget about the last two pages of Rule of Wolves for the sake of fluff and angst only... hehe)

    Summary

    In another world, Alina Starkov is not the sun summoner and instead remains a mapmaker, working her way up the ranks on her own with her best friend at her side.

    In another world, a little (bastard) prince learns how to hold the sun in his hands when running from his cruel brother. He keeps his powers a secret, scared of what they mean, until he's' faced with the choice to continue hiding or help those in need.

    The Darkling had prepared for more possibilities than he could possibly count, planning and scheming to keep his Grisha safe. But despite all his plans, he had not anticipated this.

    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

    Me, afraid of, you? Don't make me laugh. Zoya said, with her hands on her hips and a mocking curl on her lips.
    I'm not trying to. Not right now, at least. You're already a queen Zoya, I just want you to be mine. Nikolai replied, his heart in his eyes for once.
    This is a collection of one-shots starring our favorite golden king and his storm witch. To hopefully keep us, until KoS 2

    Summary

    Zoya returned to the mirror, inspecting herself in it; scarred just like her lover from years of war, she ran her fingers down one arm, feeling harsh turquoise scales no one else could see rise like hairs on the back of her neck. She swallowed, dropping her hand and pressing her palms to the vanity, looking closely at herself for the first time in weeks. Nose practically pressed against the mirror, she could see the first signs of the shadows under her eyes that Genya had gotten rid of pushing to make their return. She’d have to ask her red haired friend to come early tomorrow to fix them again. She ran one pinky under her eye, tracing it, as though she had Genya’s powers and could rid herself of her flaws. Not that she had many, she was constantly reminded. 

    or; a tired and overworked zoya needs reassurance from her husband that everything is going to be okay.
