    Summary

    Alina’s story as an eight-year-old who’s just discovered she’s Ravka’s savior. She grows up with the favor of the Darkling and all the girls in her classes want to be her. She struggles at first to use her power but as soon as she lets Keramzin go she blossoms into a Black Lotus, the Darkling’s protege.

    She lets go of Mal and her past and clings to the future.

    This idea, I feel like, has been attempted several times but never brought to completion. That will be my goal here.

    Updates on Sundays!

    Summary

    Alina is too familiar with having nothing. No parents, no real home, and no outstanding qualities of her own. Her fate is forever sealed as an orphan girl, bound to follow a common path: a period of service to the armies of Ravka.

    Though she enjoys the simplicity of her life, she longs for something more, knows that she is bound for something far greater than a life spent in dirt and mud. She is reminded of it every time she summons the sun with a sweep of her hands.

    When Alina has to decide between a life of power and a life of commonality, she allows her heart a most selfish indulgence— She chooses power.

    ---

    Or, more simply put, a Dark!Alina AU, because I am very much in love with that concept.

    Summary

    The morning would have been beautifully serene ... if it wasn't for the ominous man standing before her.

    ——

    A series of one-shots, (very) loosely inspired by Hades and Persephone, exploring the relationship between Alina and the Darkling - and possibly more characters in the future.

    Summary

    “I threw away everything for you, Nikolovich,” Anton said slowly. “And you will not live to make me regret it.”


    Patience. Humbleness. Something to lose. They're the three things Ravkan Crown Prince and Grisha prodigy Artemiy Lantsov lacks. Doted on by his parents and adored by his people, Artemiy has never had a want for anything. But when his decision to leave the walls of the Twin Palaces lands him in the heartland of his enemy, Artemiy finds himself in the middle of a brewing conflict that may well destroy everything his parents have worked so hard to build.
    [Set nineteen years after the events of Crooked Kingdom, this work is a very self-indulgent exploration of the Grishaverse after the fact, with plenty of inspiration taken from actual nineteenth-century history. This is the first of a series. Enjoy!]

    Summary

    Alina grew up using her powers in secret, allowing her an upbringing of confidence and beauty. She is now in her twenties; she and Mal have had many years of service together in the army.

    One night, before their eighth crossing of the Fold - what would have been the fateful crossing - she confessed her feelings to him. It didn't go as she'd hoped. Utterly dejected, she just. . . packed up and left in the dead of night.

    Months later, half-starved and living on the run, she learns of a pirate who purportedly hires Grisha, doesn't seem to treat them any differently than he does anyone else, and is good to his crew. This leads her to a suspiciously handsome man in a painfully loud teal frock coat and a morning attempt at talking her way into his crew.

    Predictably, things go horribly wrong from there.

    A Nikolina-centric fic with pieces of the other relationships, because fun.

    Summary

    It's been three years since that fateful day on the Fold and Alina has been in hiding ever since. After losing Mal that day she has scarcely interacted with anyone, and just when she's finally begun to feel safe a new but also very familiar presence makes itself known once more. It's when Alina tries to ignore this feeling that she's captured by none other than Dirty Hands himself and Alina is in deeper than she ever asked to be.

    Summary

    Alina had two simultaneous thoughts of ‘damn, he’s hot!’ and ‘oh no, douchebag incoming!’

    “You aren’t too busy to do a large order right now, are you?” He said in a low voice that caused her stomach to attempt acrobatics.

    Oh god, she was staring at him with her mouth open wasn’t she? Shit, shit, shit! Talk NOW!

    A modern day alternate universe where Alina is a starving artist working as a barista with Alexei and Nikolai. The Darkling is mysteriously handsome customer who takes interest in Alina. Oh, and she lives with Mal which greatly complicates everything.

    Get ready for the coffee puns!
