    Summary

    How long has it been since he felt this way? Years, perhaps. Centuries. All the power and control his long life has afforded him, and the mere thought of Alina kindles something dark and furious in his veins. It will ravage him if he lets it. She will ravage him.

    Or: An interlude in the Tsibeya woods sees Aleksander struggle with want, and wanting.

    Summary

    A small, spiteful part of her envies Mal his easy sleep; if the cries woke him, at least they’d both be miserable. Instead, it’s just Alina, alone in the endless night.

    Alina, and the twist of thwarted desire still curling in her belly.

    Or: Alina is frustrated. The Darkling lends a hand.

    Summary

    He kisses her, and it is like an answer to a question she had not known she was asking. 

     

    With her, he is soft, and beneath the heavy, dark exterior she sees him — he is lonely, perhaps just as lonely as she is. In each other, they have found answers to questions Alina did not realize she was asking, questions that he has been ruminating on all along. 

     

    Her hands slide into his hair, feeling the soft strands beneath her fingers as he tugs her closer, cups her jaw and kisses her as though he’ll never get the chance again. Nothing about this kiss is safe, Alina knows — not just because it’s him, but because of the way he does it, the way he tugs her into his body until she is pressed along the length of him, the way she knows that he intends never to let her go.

    How the Winter Fete scene should have gone, if they weren't interrupted. I won’t ever forgive Netflix for taking that away from us. There are so many different iterations of this scene in fic but I wanted to try my hand at writing in-universe, so please enjoy my take!

    Summary

    "He tugs on the tie to her robe and she doesn't stop him. It's easy to shut her eyes, let herself drown in the feeling of assurance and right-ness when he touches her. It's not so bad, Alina thinks, to make mistakes in the dark."

    OR: The Netflix show gave us the glorious little detail of the Darkling having a giant mirror in his bedroom at the foot of his bed and I, for one, don't think we as a fandom use that information nearly enough. So this is me... using that information. This is set during Alina's time at the Little Palace during "Siege and Storm," but uses elements of both book and show canon.
