    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

    It is not one thing that sets her off, is the thing. There is no breaking point, no linear pattern for anyone, let alone Aleksandr, to look at afterwards and go, “This. This right here is where I lost her. This is where I still had time to save her from herself.”

    Summary

    Based on THAT scene of Siege and Storm. Alina falls asleep in tears in The Darkling's chambers after having seen Mal kiss Zoya. She wakes up to sweet and soothing caresses. She thinks Mal has come back to her, but she's wrong.

    Or: Alina wants Aleksander even after what he did and she's on a guilt trip because of that. Aleksander is terribly jealous of Mal and pathetically in love with her but he sucks at expressing it.

    Also important: The Darkling has Ben Barnes' puppy eyes and you want to forgive him even though you shouldn't.

    The triplets have had a hatred for Alina starkov since she blew up their ships with their own canons, and for sleeping with them and for running away, somehow they managed to kidnap her first mate and they were sure she would kill them but she didn't, all she did was bruise them in a few place and left- AGAIN.

    All Alina wanted was the world and her family safe, instead, she got three obsessive simps that she hardly knew.

    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 naïve 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? How would the story of the Sun Summoner and the Darkling go from there if things were just that little bit different?

     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."
