    Summary

    “I heard you made a friend.” 

    Cold fractures in her stomach, followed by a heated mix of shame and indignation. 

    “Why does it even matter?” she demands. 

    Aleksander makes a sound between a snarl and a growl. 

    “You’d go and waste that with some otkazat'sya—”

    “Would you rather it was a Grisha?” Alina counters, lifting her chin. 

    “Do not test me,” he warns, stepping towards her. A shiver races over her skin, and she’s momentarily distracted by the line of his throat as he swallows, his skin grazing the edge of his parted collar. The shadows in the corners of the room are brewing, and she can feel the tension of his anger in her teeth. 

    Alina loses her virginity, and the Darkling finds out.

    Summary

    @jomiddlemarch wrote a war/pregnancy/Helnik drabble and very generously said I could expand upon it. Thank you! @sagiow helped me with the French, for which I say merci beaucoup! @theburnbarreljester beta-ed and encouraged and cajoled and gave me the blessed image of “oh no they have to have sex to stay undercover at a brothel” and from there it really just writes itself. Thanks for continuing to “yes and” my writing into existence and for the delightful chats about it. And check out the resistance moodboard by @mszenik on tumblr which is gorgeous and something I definitely stared at a lot while writing.
