    Summary

    After a traumatic event, Jesper and Wylan take a trip to Novyi Zem to heal and find comfort in one another again.

    This is a 'spin-off' of sorts related to my longer SOC fic "The Pugilist's Creed". However, I did try to write this so that it could be read on it's own. There are a few references to events that happen in the longer fic, though, so if you like this and haven't read the other, go check it out!

    Summary

    “I wonder if you’d be dragging your feet like this,” Nina spoke through gritted teeth. “If it was Inej’s life on the line.”

    A storm fell over Kaz’s features, but he did not move, did not let his eyes fall away. Instead, he spoke in a slow, calculated tone. “I’d choose your next words very carefully, little deathrender. However soft you think I’ve grown, remember that I am always willing to show you that the monster is still alive and well.”
    ********************************************************************************

    It's been sixteen days since Matthias and Wylan were taken, and Kaz Brekker has chased down every possible lead only to come up empty handed. However, with an angry Nina and desperate Jesper at his side, he is willing to do whatever it takes to find his missing crows and bring them back home - even if it means more blood on his hands.

    Summary

    Wylan wasn't touch starved. He wasn't! Okay so maybe he didn't get any hugs, and maybe the last person to give him any physical affection was his mother, but he was fine. Totally and completely fine.
    (Yeah right.)

    ********************

    AKA I wanted to write touch-starved Wylan gets a hug from all of our favorite Crow babies to celebrate Jack Wolfe's casting, so here it is!

    Summary

    Why was he even doing this for Kaz? His days of being the pushover boy who let people walk all over him were over, so why did he say yes to Kaz’s request?

    Saints, he knew exactly why. He just didn’t want to admit it.

    Kaz approved of him now. Kaz actually thought that the boy could do something with the chance he gave him, and Wylan wanted to prove that to him. He wanted to prove himself to him. Kaz was the first person to ever tell Wylan he was good enough, and Wylan had an irrational fear of ever letting him down.

    Like he had everyone else.

    Wylan refused to let that happen with Kaz. He had been more of a father to Wylan than Jan Van Eck ever had been, and he intended to show Kaz that he could be good enough.

    ***********************

    There are nowhere near enough fics about Kaz being Wylan's father figure, so I decided to change that.

    Summary

    There’s a resounding crash that makes Wylan jolt awake until he’s sitting bolt upright. He’s fallen asleep on the sofa, he realises, a thought that’s followed immediately with: I’m being robbed by the worst thief in the Barrel.
