Kallypso’s Next Shadow and Bone Fic poll
Happy first Wednesday with no Scars of Light update because its DONE!!
But I feel weird not posting anything, so here’s another poll about what my next project should be. I am taking a break from starting anything new until at least spring, but I still want to know what’s next on the docket. The last poll, you guys picked the Modern Darklina AU I am currently publishing. But what SaB fic should I work on next?
1. The Darklina (possibly Malarklina) role reversal fic. Alina is still immortal after the events of the trilogy and she retains the sliver of the Darkling’s shadow powers after she loses her light. She becomes the new Darkling and a few centuries later, Aleksander is reincarnated as a sun summoner. Other familiar faces are also reincarnated (including Mal, who is Aleksander’s BEST FRIEND NOW) and Alina suffers with the irony of it all. Rated M.
2. Darkolai, Heartrender! Nikolai fic. Nikolai discovers he is actually a heartrender and goes to the Darkling for help. Aleksander sees an opportunity to put a Grisha on the throne, so he trains and radicalizes Nikolai…and also maybe they seduce each other in the process. (What am I saying ‘maybe’ that definitely happens). Big old political thriller/romance. Rated E.
3. Darkling backstory of the events that led to the creation of the Fold. Focuses especially on Aleksander’s relationship with Luda and of the king who betrayed him and tried to kill him. Rated M/E. Haven’t decided yet. But it’s gonna be sad.
I’ll keep this up for a week! Hand me your votes! What do I do?

I was just considering how in Shadow and Bone (the novel), Aleksander must have been informed that many of his men had died prior to Alina's introduction within the Grisha tent, as it was not one experimental skiff, but a convoy that was attacked by overwhelming numbers. His perceived coldness may have been a cover for grief.
