    Summary

    It’s not really a choice in the end. He knows that, objectively, the Amazonian is infinitely more important than his mother, in the grand scheme of things. But Heron isn’t the kind of person who could make that choice. For him at least, it’s not a choice.

    Or

    Canon divergence wherein Heron finds his voice at a critical moment and decides not being an orphan in more important than being a hero.

    Summary

    There are stories with snakes that bite and say {you knew what I was when you picked me up} but this isn't one of them. This is the kind of story where the abandoned child walks in the jungle beneath the branches full of hissing things and tells them {we be of one blood ye and I}.

    Harriet Potter is eleven and she chooses.

    Summary

    When Alina Starkov awakes, she is a white-haired woman, but her fingers are slim and straight and pencil-calloused. She is still sickly but not so worn. She is no longer in the orphanage but in a dingy tent. Dawn is breaking, and as she always does at sunrise, Alina feels for the familiar contours of her loss, the wound where the light once found a home. That chasm still lives in her mind. But where it lived in her body and soul, there instead resides completion and possibility.

    Alina Starkov smiles a triumphant and vicious smile.

    Summary

    "Miss Starkov, are you aware of how distracting you are in my class?"

    My lips parted open, frozen as he turned around, bracing himself against the edge of his desk and leaning back slightly. His quartz eyes glimmered as he evaluated every inch of me in a painfully obvious manner, as if he were reading me like I was words on a page. I forced myself to speak. "I-I'm so sorry I came in late, but I have perfect attendance sir, this has never happened before and I'm a very dedicated student," I stumbled over my words frantically, my throat painfully tight in fear. He laughed, a dry, raspy chuckle that shut me up almost immediately. "That's not what I was referring to, Alina," he hummed, the sound of my name rolling off his tongue sending goosebumps down my arms. It was almost... seductive.
