    Summary

    He gets a quick glance at the child, nameless so far, when the General comes out of the vezda suite to give them assignments, the babe, like a blanket-wrapped package, held securely in his arms. Mildly curious, he cranes his neck to get a glimpse of the newborn’s face, partially hidden between the folds of the blanket.
    She looks… like a child. Kind of small, kind of red, kind of wrinkly.
    Fedyor gives a little adoring aww. Ivan doesn’t get what the fuss is about.

    Ivan is not a baby person. He definitely isn't. (Until he is.)

    *Or if Alina was smarter and didn't take everything at face value.

    **I'm literally just writing this for me. No idea where it's going or what's gonna happen but whatever. That being said, if you have suggestions or ideas please comment!

    Summary

    Alina has always struggled with sleep in her life, suffering through sickness or unable to drift off to the sound of other children crying for mothers that would never return. She has gone countless nights turning in fits of nightmares or too afraid to accept sleep in the first place.  For all that she has struggled, regardless of circumstance she has never rested as well as she does in Aleksander’s bed.

    ~~~~~~~~~

    Alina comes to terms with her feelings, made even stronger as Aleksander is away for the war.

    A little fic for based off the absolutely stunning work drawn by Luci (for Martyna)
