    Summary

    Alina is a beta, and betas don't get heats. So there must be another perfectly rational explanation for the odd way she has been feeling recently.

    Summary

    On the run from the Grisha, Aleksander and Alina's connection opens up in quite an inopportune circumstance —

    While they're both in bed with other people.

    What a coincidence that they are both in need of some extra stimulation.

    Summary

    Alina Starkov is seventeen years old, and knows everything — and nothing. But Aleksander has promised that if she has a question, all she has to do is ask.

    But she has not asked her hardest questions.

    ----

    “It’s just me, Alya,” Aleksander says softly, his voice low and cool, and Alina lets it wrap around her, swears that the room gets a little darker and that her blood calms a little. “You trust me, don’t you?”

    Alina nods.

    A tendril of shadow curls around her ankle, exposed under the black skirt of her kefta. She smiles a little.

    “Sometimes, Zoya talks about this thing —“

    Summary

    For the first time in her life, Mal has gone somewhere that Alina can't follow. She has no one left in the world- or so she thinks, until Aleksander Morozova shows up on her doorstep with an offer she would be a fool to refuse.

    [In which Aleksander oh-so-helpfully steps in to assist newly widowed Alina with anything that she might need, even if she doesn't know she needs it yet.]

    Summary

    He kisses her, and it is like an answer to a question she had not known she was asking. 

     

    With her, he is soft, and beneath the heavy, dark exterior she sees him — he is lonely, perhaps just as lonely as she is. In each other, they have found answers to questions Alina did not realize she was asking, questions that he has been ruminating on all along. 

     

    Her hands slide into his hair, feeling the soft strands beneath her fingers as he tugs her closer, cups her jaw and kisses her as though he’ll never get the chance again. Nothing about this kiss is safe, Alina knows — not just because it’s him, but because of the way he does it, the way he tugs her into his body until she is pressed along the length of him, the way she knows that he intends never to let her go.

    How the Winter Fete scene should have gone, if they weren't interrupted. I won’t ever forgive Netflix for taking that away from us. There are so many different iterations of this scene in fic but I wanted to try my hand at writing in-universe, so please enjoy my take!
