    Summary

    She is already married.
    To a guy she never met.
    She needs to fix this, but first she must meet the guy. Nikolai Sturmhond. Surely he's a sensible man, surely he'll agree to fix such a terrible mistake.

    Summary

    It's this, but with only canon levels of language and smut.

    "The last part of my AU 'rewrite' of Bardugo's wonderful series. In it, Alina grew up using her powers and was found as a twenty-something. Consequently, annoying people are much less annoying *coughMalcough*.

    This is Bardugo's series, word for word, but with tweaks and added scenes. Later in this 'book,' I will go completely off the rails to follow the AU, thus landing us at an ending different from hers.

    From my first two works: 'Basically, read this if you've been wanting to re-read the trilogy but don't want to have to go through the parts that frustrated you again. That is literally the whole reason I am doing this.'"

    Summary

    Maven Calore is the second prince of a country ruled by Grisha kings which Nikolai Lantsov, King of Ravka, visits on a diplomatic mission. Nikolai is unsure what to think about a country so different from his own, but also dominated by the conflict between Grisha and non-Grisha while he feels a certain pull to the second prince. A boy in the shadows but ambitious like him, a prince a bit too curious about the Darkling who is only a legend to Maven. Nikolai is both enraged and excited when talking to him.

    Summary

    "I know myself," I say. "I know Alina, too, so well it's like I am her. Or was her. Maybe I'm her from another life. Another universe. All I know is that I'm here now, and I know. . . everything."

    - - - - -

    Everyone is in their twenties. Where in their twenties is up to you, idc. Characters will be a little changed as a consequence.

    MC will generally be a tough-as-nails, unamused sass-monster.

    It's a little indulgent, but it's just for fun. *pauses* . . . I'm worried there's a reason this has never really been done in this fandom.

    Too late now.

    FOR SCIENCE!

    Summary

    My version of the life Alina would have had if her talent was recognized by the Grisha examiners. A life tangled into and formed by the Darkling’s will, their bond holding Alina back from her memories of before. Memories of when she was otkazat'sya…
    …and free.

    Summary

    Alina just wants to get into her apartment building without having to pretty much crawl over the hood of a car, instead she gets stuck with the living inspiration for the Tall, Dark And Handsome trope.

    Summary

    Alina's friends still come visit her after her supposed martyrdom. Some of those visits are more intimate than others. The only rule in her bedroom is no titles.

    (A series of interconnected oneshots where Alina and Mal sleep with and comfort their friends as they all attempt to come to terms with the scars and titles they can't quite bear to let go of.)

    Summary

    The problem with wanting is that it makes us weak.

    An AU-ish one-shot, probably set sometime between the end of S&S and the start of R&R. The Darkling appears to Alina and she can no longer hide her desire for power… or for him.

    Summary

    This was not what he had wanted.

    Aleksander stood before the writhing cloud of darkness he had created, listening to the screams of the monsters within. It would not bend to his will, neither the darkness nor the monsters. What good was a weapon that you could not wield?
    The Shadow Fold, they were calling it. The Unsea.

    This was not what he had wanted.

    Summary

    Alina's done it. She's killed the Darkling (and killed Mal in the process). When that raspy breath is drawn on the Fold, it's the herald of a life she never expected. A story of grief, loss, healing, and guiding; Alina never knew what happened to turn Aleksander Morozova into the Darkling. Through his nightmares and his halting words, she finds out. And while she becomes the keeper of his pain, he becomes the keeper of hers.

    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.
