    Summary

    Eventually Ivan deemed her satisfactory, and when he asked how long she was willing to volunteer beyond this night, he did not glare at her response.

    “Until you don’t have to break the ice on the horse troughs every morning.”

    Or:

    As winter sets in near the Fjerdan border, Alina and the other cartographers volunteer for the dubious job of helping keep the Grisha in the outpost warm. It’s a mutually beneficial arrangement for everyone until someone catches feelings.

    Summary

    The Shadow Fold has endured for more than six hundred years. Now in the twenty-first century, the Darkling serves under greedy politicians as a five-star General of the Second Army. Until he can make his move towards power, until he can finally find his fabled Sun Summoner.

    Alina Starkov is just an entry-level intelligence analyst for the Ravkan First Army, watching massive screens of satellite footage for hours on end. Mostly handling documentation, cross-referencing incoming intel, outlining small skirmishes on digital maps. The minutia kind of stuff. She'd be the first to tell you that she isn't anyone special, certainly not Grisha.

    Or: A modern retelling of Shadow and Bone.

    Summary

    Alina is the bastard daughter of the Tsar. In an attempt to both humiliate and control the darkling, he forces them to marry.
    Will this change tear Ravka apart or give it a real chance to heal?

    Also known as: the Darkling simps, Alina gets a character arc and I’m sure I’ll find a way to fit Mal into this

    Summary

    A reimagining of Isaayu, set during Ruin and Rising. Mayu is stationed in a remote Sikurzoi posting as part of her Tavgharad training. Isaak never met Nikolai, so he re-enlists just in time for the Darkling's reign. He and his regiment are patrolling the Sikurzoi border, searching for Alina Starkov, when a landslide separates them. Isaak inadvertently wanders into Shu Han territory, where he meets Mayu. Roles are reversed as Isaak must hide his Ravkan identity from Mayu and she must learn to become a Tavgharad, for better or for worse. Can they each learn to trust a stranger, or will this encounter end in a tragedy?

    Summary

    Hunted across the True Sea, Alina Starkov can’t outrun her past—or her destiny—for long. After a harrowing encounter with the man they call the Darkling, she returns to Ravka and the Second Army, forging new alliances and putting aside old rivalries. But as her power and influence grow, she may have to become what she once feared in order to lead the Grisha and keep them safe.

    Exiled from his homeland but still fighting to protect his people, Aleksander Morozova has emerged from the Shadow Fold with a terrifying new power that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. Despite his tumultuous history with Alina, he cannot stay away from her. The unique bond they share could be the key to winning her over, or it could be his ruin.

    With enemies on all sides racing toward war, only the two of them stand between their country and a rising tide of darkness that could destroy the world. In order to save their people, the Sun Summoner and the Starless Saint must forge a new empire to outlast all but themselves.

    Summary

    When Alina Starkov is found to be the Sun Summoner, Aleksander is more than happy because he finally found his solution to destroying the Fold, something that has plagued him ever since he created it. But as time passes, he starts to see Alina in a different light, all while vowing to protect her from the King who seeks to exploit Grisha.

    In this story where the King is the real antagonist and Alina and Aleksander are our main protagonists, what happens when Power and Reign are concerned?

    POVs are written from Alina and Aleksander

    Transparency Note So I Don't Lead Yall On:
    This is my first fic. It's a really detailed one that focuses on more than the King being the antagonist, we'll get to that eventually but the first half is more on developing Alina's relationship with everyone else, especially Aleksander. Because these relations will all come in handy later. Furthermore, our two main characters have challenges and all to work through before we get to the King. I haven't given out any spoilers here, just that it's a warning that this story is more than the King being the villain. But I hope you will consider reading and enjoy the entire ride :)

    Summary

    His rooms felt expectant and he hated the feeling. There was a passageway between his suite of rooms and Alina’s, only able to be opened on her side of the doors, and she’d never once used it when she came to spend time with him during the day—always knocking at the door from the main hall, coming in when he bid her enter. The uphill battle left him weary and wary, for every day he tried to care for her, to look after her, and every day that she rebuffed him made the other alphas sniff around his ankles, looking for weakness.
