    Summary

    “You have to die.”

    Kaz blinked, unsure if the pain was muddling his mind. “What?”

    “You have to fake your death,” Inej said, her eyes soft yet persistent. “You have to disappear. Go somewhere where they can’t find you until this all blows over.”

    Silence stretched between them as what she was suggesting loomed in front of him. The burns on his right arm were still hot from the fires that turned the Slat to ash. He could feel the ash on his face, in his hair, in his lungs. He considered Inej’s words and realized they rang true.

    “I know a place they won’t think to look.”

    ——

    Or after Kaz is almost killed, he is forced to flee to a small town near Lij, his childhood home. His past, present, and future come crashing together and the crows discover who they really are.

    Summary

    Inej Ghafa is a principal dancer of the Kerch National Ballet, haunted by a past she'd rather forget. Kaz Brekker is a mob boss who holds the city in the palm of his hand.

    Perhaps if all were right with the world, two such people would never meet. Or perhaps fate will always give those who need each other a push in the right direction.

    It begins, as so many things in Ketterdam do, with a murder.

    Summary

    There is no kingdom, just as there is no longer the Calamity. All that's left, is to learn how to exist again.

    "Her body bends. Her hands reach out. Blonde hair falls against the woodwork, her forehead pressed against the floor. She could crawl into the grave, if the earth would only allow her. Her bow is as deep as her sorrow; and she says, lower than them all, 'Forgive me, please. Forgive me of it all.'"

    A collection of moments from the post-BOTW world.

    Summary

    "Any eggplant emoji in your life, Rey?"

    Blessedly, Rose is watching some far-off surfers. Rey can't imagine that admitting her tryst -okay fine, two trysts- with Ben is a smart idea.

    "Oh, uh, nope. No eggplant. It's as dusty and empty as a Victorian attic down there," Rey says, deciding humor is her best defense, and Rose nearly chokes on her beer as giggles seize control of her.

    "If only there were a dusty Victorian attic emoji." Rose mutters, and Rey reaches out to clink her bottle against her friend's.

    In reality, Rey would probably describe her attic as sparsely decorated but well-cared for, at this particular juncture. Ben knows what he's doing.

    But Rose, even with her minimal interest in being judgy, would probably raise a critical eyebrow if Rey admitted the stubborn asshole next door was the one who has twice now... spruced Rey's attic.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------

    AKA: Rey and Ben are each hard-working small business owners in a quiet beach town, determined to succeed, whose feuding and fighting lead to one other F-word that they also do together.
