Change one thing, change everything. Mount Weather offers Clarke a deal instead, and everything gets really complicated--especially when Clarke finds herself being held prisoner in Polis.
Basically a rewrite of everything from "Blood Must Have Blood" onward, because I am Clexatrash and I enjoy the masochistic pain of worldbuilding. Apparently.
Don't stop trying to find me here amidst the chaos
Though I know it's blinding, there's a way out
Say out loud: We will not give up on love now
No fear, don't you turn like Orpheus
Just stay here; hold me in the dark [..]
I'll show you good, restore your faith
I'll try and somehow make a meaning of the poison in this place
Convince you love, don't breathe it in
You were written in the stars that we are swimming in
- Sara Bareilles, 'Orpheus'
- Part 2 of Gravity
While Lexa squares off against the angry Commanders in her head with devastating side effects, everyone else is racing against time to find a way to survive the end of the world. Book II of "Gravity", running more or less parallel to canon season 4 and picking up about a month after "Amidst the Chaos". Basically a series rewrite of everything I find upsetting from "Blood Must Have Blood" onward, because I am Clexatrash and I enjoy the masochistic pain of worldbuilding. Apparently.
It's the moment of truth and the moment to lie
And the moment to live and the moment to die
The moment to fight, the moment to fight,
To the right to the left, we will fight to the death
To the edge of the earth,
It's a brave new world from the last to the first
- 30 Seconds to Mars, 'This is War'
- Part 3 of Gravity
Six and a half years after Praimfaya, things on the Ring are more complicated than ever. With no way to get back to the ground and Lexa’s situation growing ever more hopeless, Spacekru tries desperately to hold themselves and their family together in the face of overwhelming odds.
When sorrows seem to find you day after day
You leave a dream behind you every step you take
Well sometimes there is not an answer for the heartache we feel.
Sometimes we have to shatter, before we can heal.
Been a long and lonesome winter, with the curtains drawn.
The distraction of our struggle drowns out the cause.
But the sun shines warmer, when you are chilled to the bone.
The welcome is so much sweeter when the prodigal comes home.
When there are no words and everything hurts
This moment is in the making
So keep walking that line, another step and you'll find.
This life is for the taking, so take it now.
Soon we are going to look back to see what remains
When trouble is behind us and everything has changed.
- Elenowen, “For the Taking”
- Part 4 of Gravity

Book IV of the 'Gravity' series - a complete series rewrite from "Bodyguard of Lies" on. Book IV takes place during canon season 5.
I'm a little let down but I'm not dead
There's a little bit more that has to be said
I'm a little bit home but I'm not there yet
It's one to forgive but it's hard to forget
All the broken hearts in the world still beat
Let's not make it harder than it has to be
- Ingrid Michaelson, “Girls Chase Boys”
