    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

    “What’s the catch?”
    “What do you mean?”
    “I mean, you’re rich enough to bribe God, so…what happens if I want to quit? What happens if we don’t get along?”
    Aleksander dabs at his lips with his napkin and sits back with a visible huff.
    “Alina, listen,” he sighs, “the fact is, I’ve got way too much money and I’d like to spend some of it on you. If you want."

    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

    ''Following rules seemed easy enough when Wylan had first arrived at Hogwarts, but when you’re a clumsy and curious Ravenclaw the rules get a little blurry real fast. Due to this, Wylan tended to spend his time working on secret projects instead of actually paying attention to literally anything else, like how late it had gotten. More often than not, Wylan tried to counteract his sleepiness with coffee, but sadly he didn’t even have time for coffee on this specific Thursday morning. So, when Wylan had to rush to Potions hoping not to be late for the third time this week, he didn’t really notice any of his surroundings. Suddenly Wylan felt like he hit a door. The door had the temperature of a body though. And it was also tall and wearing a fluffy vest. The door was a student.''

    ~aka a multi-pov wesper fanfic with tropes like fakedating, wiping whipped cream of someone’s lips, helping each other pass exams and some good-old angst, that takes place at hogwarts (also wylan is a cute mad scientist argue with the wall) !updates every two weeks on sunday 9pm uk time

    ps; I don’t support JKR at all, I am just taking the universe and running with it!!

    Summary

    “Speaking of the Devil! Yes Aleks?” Genya answered his call.

    “Tell me you’re on your way here! Zoya is making a huge mess with Ivan because of the incoordination between my department and Ivan’s” He didn’t know he was on the speaker, Genya could hear his voice turning into a soft one “Did you talk to your friend?”

    “Which friend?” Genya teased him, fully knowing who he was talking about.

    “Miss Starkov” he sounded irritated but he quickly added “Can you tell her to come this afternoon? I can’t handle this chaos alone and I have a trip to London next month. I need her.”

    Alina started dancing across the kitchen with her knives and spoons, a funny scene that Genya hadn't seen in a long time ago… Since Mal started disturbing Alina.

    Genya knew that Alina wasn’t just affected by Malyen’s sexual “verbal” harassement and his dirty texts and pics. She was sad because she lost her brother, her protector, her oldest friend... And her entire family with him.

    “She heard you.” Genya smiled sincerely and Alina froze.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov left Keramzin behind a long time ago. The Sun Summoner decided to see the world and to see it alone, although making several friends along the way. The problem that remained was that something still drew her back to Ravka-something that pulled every fibre of her soul.

    Someone.

    She’s here now to face all that she has to, strengthened by all she has survived so far. She has played the game of shadows and secrets-and now, she faces the man that may as well have invented it.

    There are no winners, only survivors.

    Summary

    “Officer, please. This is just a misunderstanding.” The normal pleading that usually accompanied a new arrival at the Brooklyn Police Department echoed down the hallway as Alina was dragged into the building.

    Oh yes, Officer Ivan was very familiar with Alina’s doorstep–but apparently not with her car. Which was utter bullshit.

    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.
