    Summary

    Alina Starkova and Malyen Oretsev have been inseparable since they first met at Duke Keramsov's Orphanage. Now sixteen years old and obligated to enlist in an army fighting many wars all at once, Alina has to make her own way into the world. Lost, angry and afraid, every discovery she makes about herself drags her further away from Mal and everything they knew.

    Worst of all, she does not know how she feels about it.

    Summary

    Different choices were made. A butterfly flaps it's wings, and a hurricane begins to build. A General always has multiple strategies to his goals.

    A series of what ifs revolving around the Darkling and Alina Starkova making different decisions, with more painful backstories for everyone. A smattering of actual Russian, and some linguistic changes to Ravkan to make me cringe less reading it.

    Warnings posted per chapter, and archive warnings/tags will be updated as needed.

    Summary

    Alina, an orphan, is a talented dancer who doesn't realise her true potential until Aleksander Morozova, famous dancer and head of the Royal Ravkan Ballet School, sees her audition variation through the window.

    “Who is that girl?” he demanded.
    “Number one?” Baghra had already guessed. “Alina Starkov, age 17. She’s trained by some tiny dance school none of us have ever heard of in….Keramzin.” She checked through her file.

    First fanfic!! Regular updates (every other to every day at the moment), hope you enjoy :]

    Summary

    Even though Alina never actually played football, it became an integral part of her life both as a child and a young adult, for better or worse. As they grew up, watching Mal play shifted from looking on from the porch at the small field beside the group home to the sidelines of youth league to catching as many of his high school matches as she could. Whenever Mal would score, Alina would cheer and whoop, happy to see her best friend in his element and happy, something being on the pitch always made him feel.

    ---

    As Mal and Alina's relationship changes over the years, one constant remains: football.

    Summary

    The Darkling's tent was large and ominous and quite a distance from the cartographer’s tent, but Alina ran to it, slamming up against the oprichniki at its entrance instead of a proper stop, breath thready and voice high with exertion.

    "Please," she said between great lungfuls of dusty air. "I need to see the Darkling."

    "You don't belong here, Shu bint."

    The urgency running through Alina's very blood coiled around itself, an anger boiling in her veins that she pushed away, willing it not to dull the momentum of her singleminded mission.
    "It's about the Fold," she breathed, frustrated, muscles singing with exertion. She pulled out one of her maps from the last month out from underneath her arm, shaking it in the face of the closest oprichniki.
    "It's shrinking."

     

    Two months before Mal and Alina are charted for their journey across the Fold, Alina enlists the help of the Darkling when the Fold begins to shrink. One Shadow Summoner-- and a Sun Summoner who has practiced her power every night since youth underneath thin duvets.

    Summary

    .
    Chapter 7:
    "Alina!" he called out to her.

    When he didn't get a response from her, Aleksander's heartbeat had kicked up two notches. Has she gone inside the third bedroom? No…

    As he reached said bedroom, he noticed that the door was ajar.

    And there Alina was, picking up a toy. It was Demetrios' favorite one.

    "Alina, what are you doing here?" he asked, his face expressionless.

    She immediately got up from the chair, and let go of Pooh bear, observing Aleksander.

    "Sorry, I didn't mean to be nosy. I thought that you said that it was OK for me to take a look around?" Alina managed to say, a bit startled at the expression on his face. It made her feel very uncomfortable, like she just had done something awful.

    He tried to mask it, but Alina was able to see the pain in his eyes. At that moment he looked utterly and completely broken.

    As Aleksander's eyes landed on the toy, he felt a gut-wrenching pain in his heart…

    Summary

    When Jan Van Eck, Connecticut's Republican senator, makes a $30 million donation to Yale University, Kaz Brekker suspects foul play between him and the university president, Dr. Pekka Rollins. There's foul play, alright, but not the kind he expected. He also didn't expect to meet his five closest friends in the process of trying to take Dr. Rollins down. Yet, here they are, crammed into a restaurant booth like normal college students, celebrating over waffles after uncovering one of the biggest political scandals that America has ever seen (unlike normal college students).

    (Alternatively, the Crows take Yale University by storm. Includes both textfic and prose.)

    Summary

    Anastasia “Poppy” Belinsky knew three things about Alina Starkov. The first was how much the girl cared about Malyen Oretsev, the second being Alina was at least five years younger than herself. As for the third…well, let’s just say that Poppy wishes Alina Starkov was actually the true Sun Summoner. It certainly would’ve made her own life easier.
    ---
    “Do you know the difference between Alina Starkov and I, General?” I asked quietly.

    Molten eyes held mine for a moment before I glanced down. Dried blood crusted beneath my fingertips, and I couldn’t be sure how much of it was my own.

    “Alina is a good person.”

    Summary

    Fedyor wanted Ivan's attention. That much was obvious to him. What he didn't know, however, was that Ivan enjoyed Fedyor's attention just as much. Or just how much he needed the attention.

Even if it means Alina playing his paramour at the Little Palace while hiding her true self from all but his most trusted subordinates. The Darkling means to conquer the Fold and bind Alina to him once and for all… changing Ravka and the world forever.

    Updated daily and told in multiple POVs: the Darkling’s, Alina’s, and more.

    Summary

    ” I’ve never met a saint before.”

    //

    Just a buch of chapters in not any very strict order, based on the Grishaverse books (haven't read the other books based in the same world by Leigh Bardugo yet). I'm trying to explore some Alina x Inej themes and they are kind of a couple in these, but keep in mind, these are quite messy and sometimes in not any understandable order. Just writing for fun :)

    Summary

    Alina Starkov doesn’t trust people. It’s one of her rules, and by far the most important one; don’t trust anyone, especially not about what you can do. It’s a good thing that she likes being alone, it’s something that comes naturally to her. She has grown up knowing about her powers and nurturing them until they become exceptional, and she’s done it all on her own. She has no desires of being anyone’s saviour and maybe that makes her a not very good person since she is, theoretically, the only one capable of destroying the Fold. But she doesn’t really care. Things have been a certain way for a very long time, and if people don’t know about her, they will continue that way without a problem. Which is what she wants.
    But destiny has a way of not caring about what Alina Starkov wants.

     

    Since the beginning of time, darkness thrives in the void but always yields to purifying light.

    Summary

    Her name was Aleksandra Morozova, though no one called her that.
    The staff in the palace called her Princess, or Tsarevna, her parents called her Moya Luna, and to her friends she was simply Irina.
    She didn’t mind. Her parents had taught her to keep her true name to herself, and she carried it like a badge of honor. It was her dad’s name, too, and she was proud of it. She was also proud to have his powers, the ability to call the shadows to her at will.

    At 16, she found out the truth about her life. More specifically, the length of it, and she knew nothing would be the same again.
    How could it, if she was going to live forever?
