    Summary

    Kaz Brekker knew who he was.
    He was a Barrel Boss. He counted his kruge, hunted down scum, and kept his city as clean as he needed it to be. He knew who was loyal to him. He knew who wasn’t. He knew who his friends were. Who his family was.
    And most times, now that he ruled a good portion of it, he thought he knew what to expect from Ketterdam. But every now and again it would surprise him.

    Summary

    A trunk of contraband items ends up in the hands of the Crows, but the item that piques their curiosity most is the large box labelled “MONOPOLY”. Kaz is out of the Slat for the time being, so of course they decide to play it. Was there ever a mission more likely to fail than six criminals with lethal skills and undeniable emotional ties all trying to build a make-believe empire without killing each other in the process? Answer: yes - all of the above while attempting to pull off a heist at the same time.

    Turns out board games weren’t the only interesting items shipped into Fifth Harbour that afternoon, and now the Razorgulls are interested. It will take all of the gang’s effort to break into two buildings full of rival gang members, regain possession of the contraband, and make it back to the Slat in one piece. And that’s without the inherent strains of playing at business negotiations with a group of decidedly underhand friends.

    Join the Crows as they cheat, steal, lie, and bribe each other, all before the heist has even begun.

    For the Grishaverse Big Bang 2021.

    Summary

    As Jesper is trying to settle down, away from cards on the Van Eck estate with Wylan alongside him as a work partner, wondering what to do with his father’s empire, they both start thinking of what they want.
    The Summer they left behind them went great so maybe it was time to get something serious going on.
    While busy reordering their priorities, Wylan receives a letter (more like hides it) and it all goes downhill after that...

    Jesper boards a ship... The Wraith makes a visit and convinces some cane-dude to tag along... Some Grisha appear... And Wylan may or may not fulfil one of Kaz’s lifelong dreams

    tl;dr Post-Crooked Kingdom Wesper making their best to figure out themselves and each other.

    Summary

    After several months at sea, Inej returns to Ketterdam only to find that Kaz has gone missing.
    While looking for clues to figure out what happened to him, she learns that Pekka Rollins’s family was killed in an accident only months before and he is now looking for the one responsible. She is sure that he had something to do with Kaz’ disappearance and that he’s hell-bent on revenge, but she also knows that she won’t be able to find Kaz on her own – some old friends are needed.

    (Excerpt Chapter 3)
    To his surprise, Pekka only smiled. “Oh, you speak of power. Where is that power now? Where are your allies? Where’s your little spider? You’re alone, Mr. Brekker. There’s no one coming for you.”

    Summary

    Wylan works to improve Kerch, partly by aligning with a growing workers’ movement, even as half the Merchant Council digs in their heels. Jesper knows he should be more, but he’s afraid to become more of a disappointment. The boys love each other. It’s enough… just barely.

    Then Jesper makes a terrible mistake, one that leads him to Ravka and a sojourn in the Little Palace. He needs to learn to control his abilities, he wants to, but that's easier said than done. Back in Ketterdam, Wylan digs into his family history, uncovering another of Jan Van Eck's dirty little secrets.

    Jesper and Wylan expected a reunion in Ravka. They never expected to mend their relationship at the heart of an international incident. Lies, poison, and lost children... just like old times!

    Summary

    A very valuable item, recently acquired by a wealthy merch. A party, being hosted by that same merch, complete with masks. It should be the perfect opportunity - sneak in as guests, steal the item, come out that much wealthier for it. Except for one teeny, tiny problem: only couples are allowed in.

    Summary

    “I don’t want to be a legend,” Inej replied. “I want to be a problem, a thorn in the side of those who do wrong.”

    Kaz raised an eyebrow at her, an amused look on his face. “A problem, not a legend?” he questioned, leaning heavily on his cane as he did. “Why can’t you both, Inej?”

    “A legend in the eyes of those I help, but a problem in the eyes of those who fear me?” she asked. “Sometimes, I feel like a fraud. I’m just a nobody, a girl sailing the sea in search of fame.”

    OR: it's been a year since Inej left on The Wraith, and she thought she could keep her homecoming a surprise.

    Summary

    "He wished he could do more; bring back her crew, bring back her ship, beg her not to go on that mission in the first place. But there was no rewind button when it came to time. They could only do the most that they were capable of, and the rest would be up to the Saints."

    Summary

    Inej leaves every time, just to come back with the tides, and Kaz is there every time her ship hits the docks.

    [What can he even say to her? I see your traces everywhere? I still feel the fanthom of your warmth on the part of my bed that you slept on? I dream of you every night, and I can't remember what is happening in there, just your silhouette and that we were slowly merging into each other, and I couldn’t tell where my body starts and yours ends? Just the full freedom, running my hands down your sides without the feeling of instant drowning, choking on the cold endless water?]

    It seems that he needed her to leave to understand that there is something in him against it.

    Summary

    He had never thought, even for a moment, that Jordie might be alive. And so he had never imagined what this might be like. The miracle. The return. He supposed he was dimly aware of the fact that it should have been joyful. It should have been a cause for celebration. It shouldn’t have felt like it was tearing him apart at the seams. Like all of his work — on himself, with Inej — was coming unravelled in the span of a single day. Like he might drown in it all, finally, dragged down in its undertow and swept out on the tide.
     
    Or, Kaz and Jordie each believe the other to be dead. When they're proved wrong, it's less a joyful reunion and more an opening of old wounds. Kaz holds his sanity together with both hands. The Crows do what they can to help. But the Barrel never sleeps, and they still have enemies out in the dark.

    //A fic dealing with Rietveld brothers angst & healing, Dirtyhands, vengeance, & backstory trauma, and Kaz's relationships with the other Crows and feelings of loneliness after the end of Crooked Kingdom.

    Summary

    Kaz Brekker had meant it.

    He was twisted, crooked, wrong, but not so broken that he couldn't pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her.
    So he would show her that there was more to him than revenge. He would shed his armour, take on her hopes, her dreams, her fears. Bad knee, scars, demons and flaws, nothing would stop him helping her carry it all.

    Look Jordie, I'm living.
