An Insider’s Guide to the Folk of the Air: Cardan’s Copy of “Alice in Wonderland”, 3/?

He looked down at a red book embossed in gold. The title was Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass. He frowned at it in confusion. It wasn’t what he’d thought a mortal book would be like; he thought they would be dull things, odes to their cars or skyscrapers. But then he recalled how humans were frequently brought to Faerie for their skill in the arts. Flipping the book open, he read the first sentence his gaze fell upon.

“I always thought they were fabulous monsters!” said the Unicorn.

Cardan had to flip a few pages back to see whom the Unicorn was discussing. A child. A human girl who had fallen into a place that was apparently called Wonderland.

“This is really a mortal book?” he asked.

He leafed through more pages, frowning.

“Tut, tut, child!” said the Duchess. “Everything’s got a moral, if only you can find it.”

Rhyia leaned over and pushed a fallen strand of his hair back over one of his ears. “Take it.” 

“You want me to have it?” he asked, just to be sure.

He wondered what he’d done that was worthy of being commemorated with a present. 

“I thought you could use a little nonsense,” she told him, which worried him a little. 

He took it home with him, and the next day he took it to the edge of the water. He sat, opened the book, and began to read. Time slipped away, and he didn’t notice someone sulking behind him.

“Sulking by the sea, princeling?”

Okay idk about u but I feel like if Jude Duarte and Kaz Brekker would ever meet, they would either hate or admire the other. But I am 100% sure that Kaz Brekker would hate Cardan Greenbriar.

It’s Going to Be Okay - Jurdan Fanfic

A/N: Hello! You can skip past the cut if you don’t want to read my pre-story rambling and just wanna get straight to the good stuff. I’ll sum up the important stuff there :) 

This is an experiment of sorts, I suppose. I don’t post a lot of my writing but since there’s a rather large FotA fandom on here I thought perhaps I might share this one! It’s a rewrite/alternate ending of The Wicked King, chapter 21, starting on page 206. It’s just some possibly-fluffy/angsty Jurdan :) (I’m really not sure what it counts as tbh, I’ve never been great at classifying my writing haha). The parts in bold are direct quotes from the book (not my writing! (although I did try to preserve some of Holly’s style in what I wrote hehe)) in case you wanted to (re)read that first, but otherwise, I sum it up below the cut. 

Keep reading
