    Summary

    Instead of Alina and Mal being saved from the whaler by Sturmhond's crew, Mal is accidentally killed by the sea whip and Alina is saved alongside Genya from the Darkling.
    They decide to return together to the Little Palace for more information on how to defeat the Darkling (and every small decision diverge the plot further from the original books, into a completely different outcome). They find out that the villains have their reasons and are not soulless as they are thought to be, and the people that others look up to respectfully are actually the real villains.
    Alina is bolder than in the original series because we want the plot to go forward in a more logical way - and also the protagonist deserves a real character arc.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov knows what it is to lose. She has lost her home. She has lost people she loves. And when she discovers the strange power kept dormant inside of her since childhood, her life is ripped from her again. Now she is a Grisha. Now she is something unique to be used by whoever can get their hands on her first. Shu, Fjerdans, Kerch traders-she learns to see them all as enemies as she fights to survive.
    Then she meets the Darkling, the powerful and handsome Grisha in charge of the second army. A man she swears she has seen before in passing hallucinations. He has spent years searching for her since the first rumors of a girl who shone like a star rose from Keramzin, and now he has found her.
    Alina is not naïve. She knows this man wants something from her like all of these others. But still, she cannot help but be drawn to him.
    Like calls to like, after all.

    Summary

    When Alina Starkov is found to be the Sun Summoner, Aleksander is more than happy because he finally found his solution to destroying the Fold, something that has plagued him ever since he created it. But as time passes, he starts to see Alina in a different light, all while vowing to protect her from the King who seeks to exploit Grisha.

    In this story where the King is the real antagonist and Alina and Aleksander are our main protagonists, what happens when Power and Reign are concerned?

    POVs are written from Alina and Aleksander

    Transparency Note So I Don't Lead Yall On:
    This is my first fic. It's a really detailed one that focuses on more than the King being the antagonist, we'll get to that eventually but the first half is more on developing Alina's relationship with everyone else, especially Aleksander. Because these relations will all come in handy later. Furthermore, our two main characters have challenges and all to work through before we get to the King. I haven't given out any spoilers here, just that it's a warning that this story is more than the King being the villain. But I hope you will consider reading and enjoy the entire ride :)

    Summary

    Alina Starkov was born afraid of the dark, with strange illnesses and terrifying spells she could never explain. Her face is the face of the enemy, and even with her unusual skills, hiding is the only safe option.

    But when she is discovered as a fabled Sun Summoner, a mythical Grisha so rare that they’ve been seen before, Alina’s carefully constructed world is shattered.

    And when the formidable Darkling, General Kirigan continues to take an interest in her for reasons she doesn’t understand, Alina must make a choice between choosing to follow the rules that have kept her safe all her life, or risk her freedom and her heart to find out who she really is.

    After all, when there's blood in the water, there are no safe places to hide.

    Summary

    “I have devoted my life to undoing the great sin of my forebearer but I’m never seen as the solution, always as a reminder of the problem. They always need someone to blame.”

    Instead of just flirting at the fountain, Alina starts asking questions. The Darkling is forced to reassess his plans and the Sun Summoner starts forging her own...

    Summary

    There were memories too painful to contemplate, but it was easier than to consider the next tortures that might have been unleashed on her by the guards.

    Alina the orphan.

    The Nazyalenskys wanted a pawn to marry Vasily, not their treasure - Zoya - passing her off as a bastard daughter, much more docile and subservient.

    Alina the lady.

    She certainly didn't know how to act as one.

    Alina the princess. Alina the queen.

    It was to be her place next to Vasily. The higher one rises, the more one has to fall. It didn't matter when she was Alina the prisoner, held captive in the palace that was once hers. Finally, she received a glass of hemlock, with the order from none other but her husband. It had taken eight years for him to remember that she should've been dealt with.

    Except that Alina wakes up, young again, armed with unfulfilled revenge and a second chance she had never anticipated. This time, it would not be the orphan girl from Keramzin who suffered.

    Inspired by a story called 锦绣未央 which details the inspiration for some of the plot points here. Please tell me what you think in the comments and leave a kudos if you liked it!

    Summary

    The violent rape and murder of a young woman in the middle of Boston's legal elite, enough disturbing details somehow leaked to the press to have the whole city clamoring for answers and yet no usable evidence to speak of – D.A. Aleksandr Morosov has more than enough on his plate. Things don't exactly get any easier when a familiar face shows up to turn the case – and his life – on it's head.

    Then again, he might actually get the chance to not only catch a killer but also find answers to questions that have been plaguing him since the day she left.

     

    Or: The modern lawyer!au that wouldn't leave me alone despite far too little actual knowledge of the US legal system; an attempt at breaking our favorites apart and then maybe making the broken pieces fit together. Featuring women supporting women, Zoya being a good friend to Aleksandr, Nina and Matthias needing a lot of catching up, broken hearts all around and me trying to get these two idiots to actually use their words. We'll see how that works out.

    Summary

    Alina Ming Liang Starkov was raised in semi-seclusion in Shu Han by her parents and her grandmother. Her childhood was filled with love and care and she always went to bed warm, with a full belly. She's had access to a good education, learning about her Shu and Ravkan heritages as well as her Grisha roots. She's stronger, smarter and more empathetic, but she's also still stubborn and naiive; she is a teenager, after all. At the age of 16, she makes the decision to share her light with the rest of the world by going to the Little Palace and furthering her education and training, even if that means sacrificing her own freedom and swearing her oath and fealty to the Crown of Ravka and the Black General's Second Army.

    Summary

    Zoya Nazyalensky and Nikolai Lantsov have worked together for years, and at first glance, they could not seem more different. Nikolai is warm, friendly, liked by all. Zoya is cutting, demanding, and respected rather than liked.

    But both have learned to put on an act to hide pain, loneliness, and fear, and they are more alike than most might guess. And though both have generally shied away from deep connections, they have managed to become close to each other. Their friendship has kept them going through difficult times, but it has also left them vulnerable in ways they both have tried to avoid.

    There is a visible spark between them, something that friends have pointed out, that coworkers have started rumors about. One that they have steadfastly chosen not to see or acknowledge.

    But when Nikolai starts a serious relationship, he and Zoya are both forced to grapple with unexpected feelings. Have they been ignoring what they mean to each other because they’ve been too scared of what might happen?
