    Summary

    Maglor has been wandering the shoreline for literal millennia. He hadn't heard another voice in almost as long. He is, understandably, quite disoriented when a loud human interrupts his perfectly peaceful brooding.

    After the disaster of the Dragon Hunt, Jaskier goes to the coast on his own. Things don't really go as planned, but who cares? Peace is overrated anyway.

    In which there are language barriers, found family, guilt crises, several long-overdue realizations, and, eventually, a very confused Geralt.

    Summary

    "That's not why I'm here." Geralt growled, "An assassin was sent for me when I was in Flotsam, I don't know who by" he pulled down his collar to show the mostly-healed wound on his shoulder, "but they were good. I was unprepared, and they stabbed with this dagger," he gestured to the weapon in front of him, "before they ran. They could have killed me, but they didn't."
    "You think it was on purpose?" Yennefer's brow furrowed
    "I think it was a message."

     

     
    Geralt is attacked by an assassin, who leaves him with Jaskier's dagger in his shoulder and a lock of his bard's hair. Geralt works to save his friend, but there is something more sinister lurking beneath the surface.

    Summary

    Jaskier can admit to being a selfish creature, to be the kind of person to wish for those things in the heat of the moment, but he also knows himself well enough to know that none of those things are what he truly wants.

    What he wants, well…

    “I wish for Geralt of Rivia to find his happiness and to never lose it for as long he lives.”

    ~~~*~~~

    Or: A magical creature grants Jaskier one wish, and Jaskier decides to ask for Geralt to be happy. The creature fulfills Jaskier’s wish, by making the bard immortal.

    Summary

    The bard looked around, shoulders slumping in both relief and disappointment when he couldn’t immediately spot Geralt. The white hair and unmistakable gold eyes had startled him at first when he spotted the man at the bar. And then their eyes met, and he had seen open shock and, dare he say, joy, in the rough face. He knew that Geralt was alive after all this time- how could he not be- but last he heard, the man was three towns over and heading east. At least, that’s what his informant had said. 700 years of avoiding the man, and there he was, sitting at the bar with that stupid, lovely, gormless, rugged mug that hadn’t changed in all this time. 

    Damnit, Geralt was still as beautiful as ever.

    Summary

    It’s almost 2 months after the Mountain Incident and Jaskier is sitting at a tavern, drinking his sorrows away. About Geralt, his sorry state of being (no lute, low on coin, alone), fall of Cintra just 2 weeks ago, fate and everything else. He though he was going to stay by the witcher’s side forever, but life’s no fairy tale. So more ale for him.
    In the corner Nilfgaardian soldiers get ready to kidnap the bard and give him to their wicked sorceress leader to force information from him about the lost princess. She may torture and curse him to get what they need, but hey, what can you expect from Fringilla Vigo’s student?

    Geralt’s 100% done with destiny. He’s with Ciri and has to hide from Nilfgaard's forces. And he still has to find Yennefer and beg her to locate his bard, damn it! And he needs to apologise if he wants to get his “dear heart” back.

    Yennefer licks her wound hidden in Brudge and contemplates her life.
    Triss helps fellow mages in Vizima.

    Lambert and Eskel travel south in search of Geralt, because they got letters from his bard saying their brother will need help.
    Oh, and they don’t even know about half of the shitshow it’s about to become. Truly ballad worthy story.

    Summary

    “Right, of course— but you wouldn’t leave a man with croissants in his hands waiting, would you?” There is no flicker of recognition in Geralt’s eyes. Jaskier had learned long ago to dampen that disappointment of shared memories lost. It’s enough for the both of them that he remembers the back-alley fucking in leather jackets and leather pants, the huddling together under the sound of bombed lands and crying men.

     

    They die and are reborn; Jaskier remembers their pasts, and Geralt never does. This time, though, Jaskier thinks they'll get it right.

    Summary

    Inspired by a tumblr post by @darkverrmin:

    Geralt keeping an eye on Jaskier after the mountain, following him silently and making sure he's okay. Geralt finds himself fighting and killing a lot of men and mercenaries who try to hurt Jaskier.

    Jaskier has no clue.

    After a few months of this, Geralt realizes in horror that it wasn't he who was endangering Jaskier, while they were traveling together. It was the bloody fucking opposite. The cheerful, bubbly bard had more enemies than all of the kings Geralt ever knew, combined.

    Summary

    Jaskier is left utterly heartbroken by the words Geralt says to him on the mountain. Whilst playing at a tavern, he is captured by Rience and tortured for information about the Witcher's location. Information that he doesn't have, not that he'd disclose it in any case.

    Summary

    ‘’No! I want you to see my eyes when I talk and make sure I'm honest. Look at me-‘’

    Geralt couldn’t continue his words, his eyes opened wide in the face of the image he saw. It was like when Jaskier left him on the mountain, his cheeks were as plump as a child's, his lips paler than he remembered, but still a little pink, but his eyes... His eyes were different. His blue eyes, resembling a cloudless sky, were covered in fog. They were like mirrors forgotten to shine, dull, grey and lifeless, and even though they were nose to nose, his eyes were facing in different direction.

    "Jaskier...’’

    A bitter smile appeared on Jaskier's face.

    "You see right. I'm blind, Geralt.’’

    [Rated E because of the detailed love scenes. The torture part was mentioned very little and without detail.]

    Summary

    Jaskier's final graduation project: a collection of stories about the ancient order of Witchers who lived in Kaer Morhen. He never anticipated meeting the last living Witchers -let alone grumpy Geralt who seemed to hate him was a member of their ranks. Maybe he shouldn't have proclaimed himself to be better at Witchering than Geralt... Too late now!

    He thought it was going to be a summer of torment, withstanding Geralt's biting comments, but gradually Jaskier realizes he respects the other man. And if Geralt just happens to be unbelievably attractive, well, no one could fault Jaskier for falling in love before semester's end.

    Summary

    "I thought you'd be mad. I thought you'd yell and curse me out and hit me. You're just… quiet."

    "I was mad, incredibly so, for a while. I didn't deserve what you said to me and if you ever do anything like that again, I'll leave and this time I will stay gone," Jaskier says. "But if it's punishment you're looking for, then you won't get it from me. I know you, Geralt. You've probably already punished yourself more than enough."

    Geralt remains silent.

    Jaskier sighs and gets up. "I'm going to get some sleep," he says and then he bends down and Geralt feels a kiss being pressed to the top of his head. "Get some rest, too. You look like you need it as much as Ciri and I do, darling."

    ———

    On their way to Kaer Morhen, Geralt and Ciri come across Jaskier, who is also trying to evade Nilfgaard's soldiers. Geralt asks Jaskier to join them—so he can keep him safe and, hopefully, fix what he broke between them.

    Summary

    Lambert meets a bard in a tavern. They become fast friends. Jaskier enjoys having a companion who appreciates him, but can't stop himself from wishing that a certain other witcher had done the same. Geralt sees the two of them together, and doesn't quite know what to do with himself. In the end, all three of them are thinking the same thing, albeit for different reasons:

    Why'd it have to be him?

    Summary

    After getting his heart broken on a wild goose chase of a dragon hunt, Jaskier - a dragon himself - never got the chance to tell his Witcher the truth. Honestly, he's glad because now he can disappear into the clouds and grant Geralt's stupid fucking blessing.

    Nilfgaard has other ideas. And like all of Jaskier's shittiest life events, those ideas end up including Yennefer of Vengerberg.

    Summary

    Cats have always sensed that Geralt is... different. He can't get within five feet without them hissing and scrambling to get away, which is why- promise you won't laugh- Geralt of Rivia, the great White Wolf, has never pet a cat before. And neither have his fellow Witchers for that matter. What happens when Geralt finds a stray kitten in some backwater town in the middle of Velen, ribs showing and half frozen to death? And what happens when he decides to take the poor thing back to Kaer Morhen with him?

    or

    Jaskier is cursed to be a cat. The Wolf Witchers find him and instantly fall in love, giving him cuddles and kisses. Things sure get awkward when they find out that the kitten they've adopted is actually the bard who's been singing about them for more than twenty years.

    Summary

    He could have apologized. Should have apologized. But the words wouldn’t come no matter how hard he tried to force them out of his mouth, and his feet refused to take him after the bard, kept him anchored right where he was. He let Jaskier walk away from him without a word, without any attempt to stop him. Because if there’s one thing Geralt of Rivia is without a doubt, it’s proud. And stubborn. It might be his downfall.

    Destiny is doing nothing but showing him the consequences of his own actions, and in return he fucked up the only good thing in his life. Because that’s what Jaskier is. The one bright spot in his incredibly dismal life.

    Things seem to be destined to get worse before they get better (but they do, in fact, get better).

    Summary

    It takes a year for Jaskier to properly lick his wounds after the mountain. When Geralt doesn’t come for him, he makes a promise to himself: he will no longer write about someone else’s life, he’ll write about his own. He hears news of a mysterious town in southern Rivia that isn’t on any Continental maps, so he embarks on a journey to investigate. However, once he gets there, he’s embroiled in something he’d never thought possible — his own Destiny, his cursed Child Surprise.

    When Geralt and Jaskier cross paths again, Jaskier makes the decision to follow Geralt one last time: to the halls of Kaer Morhen, where he and his Child can be safe. The threat of a second war hangs over the Continent like a ghost, and with a dark rider hot on their trail, Jaskier can think of no safer place than beside his old muse, no matter the cost to his own heart.
