    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

    In a city that never sleeps, a true darkness is beginning to wake; it prowls the city, feeding on the pure terror of its inhabitants - and Alina Starkov is at the centre of it all. As her powers grow, so does her magical attraction to the mystical, criminal underbelly of the city… and to the man that shows her it all.

    Though it contains elements of both Alarkling and Malina in terms of dynamics, this is not a story based on ships/ship wars nor romance. The focus is on Alina solving murders and working through her powers.

    Summary

    Three years have passed since Alina and the Darkling conspired to overthrow the crown. Over the years support has remained mixed, made all the more complicated by Nikolai's escape and the revelation that he had been an unwilling puppet king. With wars on both sides of the border and threats from Lantsov loyalists an almost daily occurrence, Alina and the Darkling could almost be forgiven for overlooking the dangers presented by Ravka's various cults.

    That is, until one particular cult decides it's had enough of seeing its Saint align herself with with someone like the Darkling. Refusing to accept the alliance, their only answer is to separate Alina from him and force her to see sense via any means possible.

    Well-hidden, deranged, and more fanatical then either of them could expect, the cult has Alina at its mercy. Once more she finds herself playing the role of spy while trying to endure increasing dehumanisation and violence. Meanwhile, the Darkling will do everything within his power to ensure she returns to rule by his side -- and when dealing with such extensive power, it seems inevitable that both of them are led into a horrific situation beyond all comprehension.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov expected to wake up on a ship sailing across the True Sea, one that would take her far from Ravka, far from the Darkling and his mad crusade. Instead, she awoke in Os Alta to a devastating truth: the war was won nearly a century ago, her first love was dead, and she remembered nothing.

    Not even that, as part of her surrender, she agreed to a political marriage.

    Summary

    He could watch her all day.

    Being a soloist with the Os Alta Ballet Company, that was saying quite a bit. Though the rest of the company had gone home for the night some hours ago, here he sat, watching her, both still in their leotards and tights.

    A ballet AU crossing the entire Grishaverse, though mostly focusing on Nikolai and Zoya. Less a plotted story than a collection of drabbles.

    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

    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!

    Summary

    Alina Starkov hid her power from the Grisha examiners when she was eight, but decided to practice her power in secret. Her best friend and fellow orphan, Mal, finds out and struggles to shed his anti-Grisha opinions to keep her hidden. Their plan works until the Darkling increases his search efforts for a Sun Summoner and retests her at Keramzin, where thirteen-year-old Alina's powers are discovered. Despite her protests, Alina is dragged to the Little Palace to train with the Darkling and the Second Army.

    - Alina and Mal's conversation in R&R about what would have happened if she was discovered at eight (and the rest of the book) absolutely wrecked my heart, so here is an alternative take.-

    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.
