    Summary

    AU of Second Best by Stormpill

    “It’s a shame really.” his thumb gently caresses her red cheek. “I had hoped when we last spoke that I was wrong, that you wouldn’t need to suffer more, but I suppose it’s understandable. After all, a real saint suffers.”

    Summary

    "And I am the idiot with the painted face
    In the corner taking up space
    But when he walks in, I am loved, I am loved."

    Asteria Volkonskaya had always suspected she was different from the other children in her village, and when starlight burst from the girl, her suspicions were confirmed, and she was swept away under the cover of darkness by a worried mother and father who didn't want the man who could control the darkness coming to steal their only child away. But we can't always get what we want, can we?

    Summary

    Dreams in the dark about the bruises he might leave were he to touch with intent, about the bloody marks he might bite into her skin, about the claim she would let him make of her body, her mind, her soul.

    Dreams of the hunger she sees barely banked in his eyes, in the predatory lean of his body, in the dangerous flash of those teeth behind his smiles.

    Dreams of what might happen were she to just turn away from him and run. Would he let her go? Or would he chase her down like prey in the night, hold her down and make her take whatever he decided to give her?

    Summary

    When you've seen kings and countries rise and fall; when you've been persecuted in every language to be born and fallen into obscurity; when your own family tragedy was so long ago, it is regaled as myth and legend, *then* and *only then* can you say that you survived it all.

    Or,
    Baghra, the Grishaverse's original persecuted orphan girl turned BAMF.

    Summary

    When the Ultralight is launched in Kribirsk, Aleksander and Luda watch it enter the Fold side by side.

    The wind gusts as the skiff enters the darkness. A bit of incongruous color momentarily catches his eyes—a scrap of blue fabric blowing by, then gone somewhere in the camp behind them.

    "One of the cartographers had wasting sickness—did you notice?" asks Luda.

    Baghra uses merzost to bring Luda back from the dead. 400 years later, Aleksander and Luda find the Sun Summoner.

    Summary

    Aleksander didn’t plan it.

    He could have never premeditated this.

    Aleksander didn’t know who realized it first. Maybe it was her, a much more sensitive soul than him. Or maybe it was him, seeing how he loved to cling a bit more than the appropriate amount of time into their hugs.

    But could he be blamed?

    Summary

    Because the stag chose Alina, Morozova's Collar doesn't work the way it intended. The Darkling is now magically dependent upon Alina as well as obsessed with her, and she's slowly being enhanced (or corrupted, depending on who you ask) by acquiring his merzost-based powers.

    Be careful of powerful men? No, it's the world that should be afraid of Alina Starkov, living Saint and conqueror of the Black Heretic.

    Summary

    There was a time when Aleksander hadn’t been at war with the world. A time when he was more a boy who wished for more than having his darkness for an eternal companion.

    Summary

    Alina breaks free from the Darkling's control before he can annihilate the town of Novokribirsk and escapes with Mal. When they eventually leave West Ravka, their ship is attacked by Drüskelle and Alina is taken. In her darkest hour, she prays to the saints, and one of them listens, turning her into a firebird so she can escape her captors. Alina gladly gives up her memories as the price demanded for her freedom.

    The Darkling dies inside the Fold, but his body is found by someone he knew a long time ago. Someone who is both capable and willing to restore his body and bring him back to life. But what will be the cost?

    Returning to Os Alta, he discovers that the Lantsovs are no longer in power. Genya and Zoya are leading a temporary council that is governing the country, a council that agrees to crown him the new king of Ravka.

    When rumours that a firebird has been sighted reach the Little Palace, the new Tsar ventures out to search for it, and finds more than he was expecting.
