    Summary

    Another low laugh. The ice in his drink clinks against the glass. It makes her stomach tense. 

    “Probably for the best. I didn’t think you wanted to go home with someone living in a flex space in Murray Hill, anyway. Let me buy you a drink.”

    “One drink,” Alina says, willing stern warning into her voice. Unsure if it’s directed at herself or him. “Are you going to try and explain shorting to me?”

    He grins, incisors gleaming in the dim light. 

    “Only if you ask nicely.”

    Alina gets more than she bargained for with Wall Street tsar Aleksander Morozova.

    Or: Astrology GF Alina, Stockmarket BF Sasha

    Summary

    “I heard you made a friend.” 

    Cold fractures in her stomach, followed by a heated mix of shame and indignation. 

    “Why does it even matter?” she demands. 

    Aleksander makes a sound between a snarl and a growl. 

    “You’d go and waste that with some otkazat'sya—”

    “Would you rather it was a Grisha?” Alina counters, lifting her chin. 

    “Do not test me,” he warns, stepping towards her. A shiver races over her skin, and she’s momentarily distracted by the line of his throat as he swallows, his skin grazing the edge of his parted collar. The shadows in the corners of the room are brewing, and she can feel the tension of his anger in her teeth. 

    Alina loses her virginity, and the Darkling finds out.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov is nobody special. Or so she used to think.

    Now, as the only survivor of a mysterious mining accident on Keramzin Station, a remote outpost of the Ravkan Empire, she is plunged into a dangerous world of political and palace intrigue, the looming threat of interstellar war, and a strange connection to the Grisha, the galaxy's most feared military order -- and its general, the enigmatic and dangerous Alexander Kirigan. But as she struggles to make sense of her unexplained new abilities and her uncertain future, the rest of the Common Sector, from Fjerdan Federation drüskelle to Kerch merchants, wants to get hold of her, and will stop at nothing to do so. Enemies are gathering on every side, rebellious planets bide their time and plan their uprisings, and the secret that Alina is unwittingly hiding may burn the entire universe to the ground.

    A bunch of misfits are, unfortunately, its only hope.

    Summary

    Mal asks if it’s alright. That’s kind of him. But he was always kind, wasn’t he? Was that why she’d wanted him?

    It’s certainly not why you want me.

    Trust the Darkling to make this all about him.

    (Or: Alina’s bond with the Darkling proves to be more than she’d bargained for.)
     
    ((OR, to quote the text from @redbelles that started this whole thing: “alina fucks mal and is appalled to realize she spent the entire time wishing it were the darkling — who catches wind of this via their bond and is like ‘here lemme help u with that’”))

    Summary

    It was his vivid green eyes that called to her across the smoky, crowded room. They held a sadness she knew only too well. Could it be he was just as lost and lonely as she? Would they be able to find solace in one another, an escape from this cruel and uncaring world?
