    Summary

    Every thought and image and feeling, the phantom corpses grasping his ankles and hands and arms—their touch seeping through leather and fabric… They all linger, digging their thorns into his very being and gripping his mind in an inescapable hold, seeping nothing but blood and anguish into and between each and every thought. None of it stops or fades, even when he reaches his destination, cold and aching and desperate to sit if only for a moment; but he can’t rest until Inej is free—be it from the confines of a prison cell, or from life entirely.

    Summary

    Like always, he thinks of Inej – Inej sailing the open seas, salt water tangling the loose hairs that frame her soft, kind face. He doesn’t think she would wear it completely undone, no, Inej is too practical for that. Maybe she would braid it, let her hair dangle down her back like the tantalizing rope he has always wanted to pull. The rope that would unravel the mess of knots in his stomach, and untangle the intricate threads that bind them together.

    Kanej as told in vignettes, according to the song Drift Away from Steven Universe.

    Summary

    And still every time he asks, “is this okay?” breathing heavily, pausing the trail of his open mouthed kisses down the long line of her throat, hands tangled reverently in her hair. And every time she laughs, watery and giddy and suffuse with bliss, “that’s my line,” for it had been hers to ask him once upon a time. Now he shakes his head, messy raven hair falling into his bitter coffee eyes, and tells her, “it’s our line now.”

    And always, her skin tingles with the excitement of holding someone you love for the first time, every time.

    Summary

    “Tulips.”

    “Not even close.”

    “Irises?”

    “Can’t stand the smell.”

    Inej pouts, and Kaz can’t stop himself from smiling at her indignation. “I’ll give you a hint,” he concedes. “It’s small, usually violet, and blooms at high altitudes.”

    “That’s three hints,” Inej points out.

    “Then the answer should come easily.”

    Summary

    He wraps porcelain, trickster fingers around the thickest part of her braid, and when the waters don’t rise, Kaz tugs.

    He tugs – not enough to pull her back through the window, not enough to even hurt, and yet in an instant, her entire body goes rigid. The once relaxed slump of her shoulders, the elegant curve of her neck – everything freezes, but Kaz jerks his hand from her hair as though he has been burned.

    Summary

    “Have I told you about the moon?”

    “Not yet.”

    Inej shifts onto her back next to him, sparing a glance for the waning gibbous outside that casts soft shadows of light through the window above his bed, and takes a deep breath.

    “When you’re on the ocean, the moon is both your most trustworthy friend and dangerous foe.”

    “Sounds like kruge – “

    “She is not like kruge at all, you greedy man.”

    Kaz huffs a watery laugh, but nods silently, eyes still closed, as if to say go on, I’ll behave.

    *

    A companion piece to my first set of Kanej vignettes told from Kaz's point of view, but can be read as a standalone. This is Inej's side of the story, set to the lyrics of Everything Stays.

    Summary

    He, like Wylan, was unsure about Alys at the start. Her airiness made Kaz weary about having her anywhere near official gang business, but unlike Wylan – who rapidly warmed to his step-mother without the shadow of the elder Van Eck looming over him – Kaz was slower to come around.

    Inej told him to take pity on her, after all, Alys was notably with child and without husband. And since Kaz was technically responsible for the latter of those two circumstances, the least he could do was let her wallow around the Crow Club a few times a week.

    Summary

    "It is not that he has ceased to live without her, for he will die preaching on a parapet soaked with blood, preaching violence till the last. He will not die from this absence in his heart, but he will know forever that while she is gone, he will ache to the very marrow of his strong but broken bones. For she has dragged him through the red waters he was born from to the soft beach of gold they will make theirs."

    Summary

    Wylan and Jesper always say that they're done with crime, but in truth, it's hard to resist, and they can't very well kick up their feet in their mansion when they could be taking down the rich.
    Inej insists she isn't looking for a special someone when she docks 'The Wraith', and that it's only old habits that keep her alert.
    Nina pretends Ketterdam doesn't hurt like a rusted blade twisting in her heart.
    Kaz lies to himself, and it's rather conflicting; he's a good liar, and good at spotting lies.

    The Crows come together for yet another heist.

    Summary

    Jordie was pulled from the waters by a grisha healer and devotes his life to saving children in honor of the brother he couldn't.

    But trying to save children from slavery becomes more complicated when it turns out his little brother is funding the entire operation as an excuse to start a gang war.

    In Kaz's defense, he is a little sleep deprived.

    Summary

    "Usually, when most awareness of his senses left him, it was for reasons not nearly as kind as this one. Now, though, he watched as she stood in the soft light of the morning, wearing that cream-colored sweater over the belts where she kept her knives, looking at him like he’d just said something far too romantic to bear, and he swore that his focus was unable to be placed onto anything else."

    Or, the beginning of a happy ending.

    Summary

    Kaz Brekker had meant it.

    He was twisted, crooked, wrong, but not so broken that he couldn't pull himself together into some semblance of a man for her.
    So he would show her that there was more to him than revenge. He would shed his armour, take on her hopes, her dreams, her fears. Bad knee, scars, demons and flaws, nothing would stop him helping her carry it all.

    Look Jordie, I'm living.
