    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 self indulgent AU that started from a series of what ifs revolving around the Darkling and Alina Starkova making different decisions, with more realistic, painful backstories for everyone. Featuring world building, Grisha culture, some kinks, a corruption arc, a smattering of actual Russian, and some linguistic changes to Ravkan to make me cringe less reading it.

    Summary

    Professor Inej Ghafa is as secretive as they come. As far as anyone knows, she has no spouse, no children, nothing. She never talks about her home life, and the only pictures in her office are of her and a few other professors. Kaz Brekker, however? The complete opposite. Everyone knows he has a thousand pictures of his family in his office, but he never allows students in, so no one's seen them, and there are regular betting pools on how many times he says "my wife" each lecture. He describes this Mrs. Brekker simply as "perfect", and his students have made a game of drawing composite sketches of her. But when the two professors are spotted on a date together, they face unseen repercussions from a secret they'd kept for a reason.

    Summary

    Alina fails to hide her powers when the Grisha examiners visit.

    'I would have gone to the Little Palace and been spoiled and pampered. I would have dined off golden plates, and I never would have struggled to use my power. It would have been like breathing, the way it always should have been. And in time, I would have forgotten Keramzin.'

    Summary

    Zoya has just become a principal dancer in NYC Ballet. Her partner is Nikolai Lantsov, son of a retired ballerina and a rich (very, very rich) man. The dancing is easy — after all, that's what they're paid for — but all that practise and just maybe the physical contact is pushing them closer together. Zoya can't forget her past, and Nikolai's is catching up with his, but they're — hopefully — too stubborn to let go of each other.

    it's a modern AU and I just tried to put in the characters where they fit because so many side characters are ignored and that is sad; also there may be random references to the grishaverse so just keep looking for them i guess

    potentially also in the same universe as my future darklina fic

    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

    Instead of Alina and Mal being saved from the whaler by Sturmhond's crew, Mal is accidentally killed by the sea whip and Alina is saved alongside Genya from the Darkling.
    They decide to return together to the Little Palace for more information on how to defeat the Darkling (and every small decision diverge the plot further from the original books, into a completely different outcome). They find out that the villains have their reasons and are not soulless as they are thought to be, and the people that others look up to respectfully are actually the real villains.
    Alina is bolder than in the original series because we want the plot to go forward in a more logical way - and also the protagonist deserves a real character arc.

    Summary

    “Is Mr. Morozov’s office next to her’s?” Alina asks with a genuine curiosity that is snapped into confusion when Zoya laughs.

    “Oh, Mr. Morozov!!! I think if he heard you call him that he would light himself on fire.” Zoya bends over just at the thought. 

    “Seriously?” Alina pauses and stifles a laugh half wondering if it was a trick. 

    “Oh yeah, he hates being reminded he’s on the older side of the team. I think that every time someone suggests he just turned 41 he wishes he could bang his head on the glass doors.” Zoya snorts at the mental image she’s painted into the air. Actually snorts, it’s full and throaty, like the kind of laugh that you only let people you liked hearing. Alina lets out her laughter then and her fears follow.

    Summary

    Journalists Nikolai Lantsov and Zoya Nazyalensky worked together for years, and despite their unorthodox dynamic, they were inseparable. But life and stubbornness got the best of them, and after a dramatic falling out, they lost touch. Despite having many friends in common and working in the same field, it has been a few years since they have spoken.

    Nikolai has risen the ranks at the Os Kervo Chronicle, and after working on a dangerous assignment near the Sikurzoi, Zoya is back in Ravka as an executive at the Os Alta Times.

    Then Nikolai is tricked into attending an engagement party, only to discover that he knows both members of the happy couple.

    Zoya is engaged to Aleksander Morozova, editor-in-chief of celebrity gossip magazine The Darkling, and Nikolai is not impressed with her choice. But now that they are back in each other’s lives, both Zoya and Nikolai have to cope with feelings they have tried to forget.

    Summary

    Okay, so this, I hope will have more chapters and maybe even a HEA, but this first chapter is now half the length it was and considerably less dark and cruel.

    I don’t really know where I’m going, but it starts right after Alina has been collared.

    Summary

    ORIGINAL NAME: Its Nice To Have A Friend

     

    wraith: are you seeing this?

    dirtyhands: why are you texting me. i’m sat next to you

    wraith: i’m being secretive. i don’t want the others to hear

    dirtyhands: spying? now im interested

    wraith: its not spying, per se

    wraith: more like, observation

    dirtyhands: interesting

     

    The Crows are in uni together, need I say anything more?

    This is mainly a texting fic, but there may be actual written stuff when something important happens.

    I'm relatively new to the Grishaverse, and I've read the SAB and SOC series, and I've watched the TV series, so I won't be referencing anything from King of Scars or onwards, even though I will start reading it soon.

    Anyway, I hope you enjoy, and criticism is appreciated :)

    Summary

    There were memories too painful to contemplate, but it was easier than to consider the next tortures that might have been unleashed on her by the guards.

    Alina the orphan.

    The Nazyalenskys wanted a pawn to marry Vasily, not their treasure - Zoya - passing her off as a bastard daughter, much more docile and subservient.

    Alina the lady.

    She certainly didn't know how to act as one.

    Alina the princess. Alina the queen.

    It was to be her place next to Vasily. The higher one rises, the more one has to fall. It didn't matter when she was Alina the prisoner, held captive in the palace that was once hers. Finally, she received a glass of hemlock, with the order from none other but her husband. It had taken eight years for him to remember that she should've been dealt with.

    Except that Alina wakes up, young again, armed with unfulfilled revenge and a second chance she had never anticipated. This time, it would not be the orphan girl from Keramzin who suffered.

    Inspired by a story called 锦绣未央 which details the inspiration for some of the plot points here. Please tell me what you think in the comments and leave a kudos if you liked it!

    (And yes, I changed my username)

    Summary

    After Alina and her team's returning to the Little Palace and having the first Grisha Council meeting, David asks Alina about Genya, not knowing that she has been right in front of him, tailored to disguise herself.
    A little fluffy scene with David and Genya because even in the most chaotic, hardest times they deserve some moments of peace.
    And I just want my babies to be happy together :))

    This is Genya's pov at the end of chapter 9 from "Grishaverse divergence (the capital difference small decisions make)", but it can be read as a standalone if you wish.
