    Summary

    Alina leaned against the fence, the smile falling off her face. She liked to see Mal like this, to see him this happy. After all, this was what he had always wanted. A simple life on a farm with her. A child. A happy family. At first, she wanted all of that too, or rather wanted to convince herself that she wanted it. But she didn’t. She missed her old life. She missed the halls of the Little Palace and chatting with her friends until way past midnight. She missed being useful for her country and being more than a wife, staying at home, cooking, and cleaning. But mostly, she missed her powers, and every time she felt the sunlight on her skin or watched her daughter summon, her heart ached, and she could feel the gaping hole inside her where her powers once were. A part of her was afraid that she might never feel whole again.

    Alina lives with Mal and their little daughter a quiet and simple life on a farm until one day, Nikolai stands in front of their door, and she finds out that someone she had believed long dead is alive.

    (Inspired by the musical Love Never Dies)

    Summary

    "You killed my friends, you killed my family, you force-fed me a demon, and you tried to kill me. Why am I here?"

    Pressed beneath him on the bed, his companion’s fingers reached up to map the tired, troubled lines on the King’s countenance.

    "You killed my friends, you killed my family, you killed my demons, and you did kill me. Why am I here?"

    Nikolai rested their foreheads together, entwined their fingers, and breathed in the chill wintery scent of shadows that the moonlight couldn't dispel. He sighed.

    "This, us, now," he tapped the smooth pale planes of the chest below his, "May be the worst thing I have ever done."

    The Darkling smiled sympathetically. "There will be others, in time."

     

    Aka: The one in which Nikolai is determined to salvage as much as he can from the ruins of the Civil War, including an old understanding with an incredibly pissed-off Aleksander. If anyone can do it, it's the new King of Ravka.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov was born afraid of the dark, with strange illnesses and terrifying spells she could never explain. Her face is the face of the enemy, and even with her unusual skills, hiding is the only safe option.

    And when the formidable Darkling, General Kirigan continues to take an interest in her for reasons she doesn’t understand, Alina must make a choice between choosing to follow the rules that have kept her safe all her life, or risk her freedom and her heart to find out who she really is.

    After all, when there's blood in the water, there are no safe places to hide.

    Summary

    "I'm Aleksander."

    "I knew that much," she replied, the ghost of a smirk playing on her red lips.

    "And you are?"

    "Does it matter?"

    "I'd like to know the name of the one person in this place who isn't a fan of mine."

    "Oh I'm sure there are more, they're just not as brave as I am."

    "Yes it does take a certain amount of bravery to tell an artist that their music is the equivalent of skinny eyebrows to their face."

    Summary

    This is a fanfic of Leigh Bardugo's GrishaVerse novels- specifically the Shadow and Bone trilogy and the Six of Crows duology. It started off as a Helnik fanfic, which rapidly grew into a slightly frenzied dream that "let's send off all the crows, add in alina, add in the darkling (because why not) oh kuwei? yeah we'll add him too, ooh zoya and nikolai, yes please. just for fun, lets add a new girl who has a traumatic past, and throw it all in a literary food processor."

    That is to say, its slightly chaotic.

    Enjoy.

    Summary

    Growing up an orphan gave Alina Starkov an incredible determination to simply survive, and an indelible ability to see lies and know instinctively when someone was trying to use her. And though she sees the plans swirling around her, it takes more than the blind trust of a silly girl for those plans to come to fruition. A bit more worldly and savvy, Alina navigates the machinations of the Ravkan Court, the Little Palace, and the Darkling in a precarious balance.

    How might things go differently if the Sun Summoner was a bit more wary and a little less naïve?

    She had one card to play, one chance at freedom. One chance at a future with her at his side instead of her kneeling at his feet or with his blood on her hands. And those were the only two outcomes she could see coming to pass if her last, desperate gamble didn’t pay off. They were too like-minded otherwise to come to anything but the other’s destruction.

    "Please, Aleks,” Alina whispered, heedless of the blood staining her lips. “Don’t become my villain."

    Summary

    “Get off my mat,” says Morozova. His voice is quiet like a held breath, but everyone in the gym is so silent it rings out loud enough to be heard in every corner. Chest squeezing like a vice, unable to look at anything but her own feet, Alina lurches forwards. At least if she's off she can go cry somewhere without it being so mortifying, so—

    “Not you.” Morozova's arm shoots out, clasps her by the bicep. "You have been perfect every time."

    -----

    Alina is the most talented rookie thirteen-time national champion team Itasca College has ever seen. Aleksander is the coach responsible for all of those victories. Neither of them can risk their careers for a passing crush.
