    Summary

    Yet another self serving Fanfiction because that's how I work through stress.

    A retelling of the Netflix adaption of Shadow and Bone where Alina stays with Aleksander because he gets the character development and redemption that we were robbed of in the original work. I absolutely don't expect anyone to read this, I'm purely writing it for my own enjoyment. However if you do read it and like it, please let me know!

    Summary

    "You might make me a better man."
    "And you might make me a monster."
    ― Leigh Bardugo, Ruin and Rising
    ________________
    If you read my other Darklina book "The True Saint", this one is the opposite(although it does not connect with my other book so it can be read separately). Instead of Alina making the Darkling a better man, the Darkling makes Alina a monster. This takes place the night of the Winter Fete. What would happen if Alina did not run that night and instead confronted the Darkling about her new knowledge of the Black Heretic.

    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

    Different choices were made. 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 kink-discovery, a corruption arc, a smattering of actual Russian, and some linguistic changes to Ravkan to make me cringe less reading it.

    Content/trigger warnings posted per chapter, and archive warnings/tags will be updated as needed.
    The Dead Dove tag is valid, although not the more commonly used interpretation in the SaB fandom - it has more to do with clearly marked sadistic violence than noncon/dubcon sexual situations.

    Currently being re-written.

    Summary

    Once, when no shadows divided countries and generals led armies, there was a little boy with shadows between his hands and a little girl with light between hers.

    Alina doesn't remember anything. Nobody seems to know her and nobody seems to miss her. Yet, deep inside she still has the hope that someone out there remembers her and that maybe some day, she'll remember again.
    After waking up from a coma without any memories of her past life and a golden necklace with her name engraved in it as her only possession, Alina is taken in by the Starkov's. For some time, she works in their modest inn and lives a simple life. One day, she joins the military and, during a crossing of the Fold, discovers that she can summon light. Her whole life changes. Everyone, grisha and common folks alike, looks at the girl like she is the answer while she herself doesn't even know who she was, is, and most importantly, who she is going to be.

    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

    Wondering how our dear Grishaverse characters would do as parents of teenagers?
    With kids who want to become general like their mom or explode things like their dad, become actors or university teachers, monarchs, doctors, singers and literally anything else you can think of, now that Ravka's future is secured and its people no longer fear dying too young to even consider these prospects outside the military, anything is possible. Or if it isn't, they make sure to make it possible one way or another.

    Summary

    Alina tries to convince herself that this is heady summer fling and she will leave the island with bittersweet memories of a man who she might've loved if the circumstances were different.

    But sometimes she catches him watching her when he thinks she's distracted and there's something there, in the softness of his eyes and the quirk of his lips, that makes her wish this was more than a summer romance.

    That maybe he might keep her when they inevitably head back to real life.

    Or: Alina meets Aleksander in Greece and her life is never the same.

    Formerly titled Cruel Summer.
