    Summary

    Geralt has always struggled with his feelings, being a Witcher and all. Feeling love in a body where he couldn't, trying to feel a smidge of sympathy for and feeling nothing... He longed for a moment where he'd meet someone's gaze and stare and them fondly, unlocking every feeling in the world. Tucked away in his home with the other Witchers, Kaer Morhen, he pondered over it all, imagining figures he knew: Jaskier the bard, Yennefer and Triss, the mages, any of them, coming to greet him at the door with wide eyes and a comforting smile.

    Or, Geralt's many lovers have abandoned him over the years, mostly due to his anger and lack of control. Isolating himself in Kaer Morhen, he reflects, and sets off on the journey of a lifetime.

    Summary

    It wasn’t like the poetry he’d so artfully composed, nor the heart-wrenching plays he’d seen performed during his studies at Oxenfurt. Although Jaskier had always imagined that it would be a spectacle of the most passionate beauty, it was instead a very subtle acknowledgement after years of traveling with the silver-haired witcher– a fleeting realization.

    Jaskier was in love.

    OR: I took TWN canon, stuck it in the most angst-ridden blender you could possibly imagine, and came up with this… but, I do promise a happy ending~ 💜

    (A songfic inspired by The Amazing Devil's "Welly Boots")

    Summary

    "Jaskier’s brows are scrunched together in concern and his voice is soft and gentle and Geralt is confused because he should be dead- he distinctly remembers the dying part of his day."

    Summary

    "Geralt vows that it will never happen again. That he will forget all about that night and everything will proceed as normal- how it’s always been. Geralt is a man of resolve and self-control and watching his friend jerkoff in the middle of the night is… unbecoming."

    --*--

    Geralt witnesses some of Jaskier's more private moments. It changes things, as these things so often do.

    Summary

    Exactly what it says in the title. This fic will follow the events of seasons 1 and 2 through excerpts from Jaskier's diary. I will also include adventures not seen in the show but entirely made up by me. ;)
    There will be a lot of feelings and pining, mainly from Jaskier as it is his diary, but Geraskier is the endgame here.

    Summary

    It was to be expected, Geralt supposes, that bringing Ciri on the Path would prove difficult. After all, he is something of a father to her, nevermind that he hasn’t wanted it and ran away from it: he is about sixteen years and a near-apocalypse late on meeting her.

    Summary

    Luckily for Jaskier it should all be over tomorrow. This is Geralt’s last job. This is easy enough, this should be fine.
    A new monster, everyone says- something never seen, incredibly large, incredibly wicked, and it had been haunting their shores for years.

    What they described wasn’t real. Skin that bled into the rocks, and eyes so pretty they’d make for gorgeous earrings- some even said the creature’s growls were more like sobs, sounding so obscenely human.

    The thing is things like that don’t just pop up in small ports. They don’t call waterlogged caves home and they definitely don’t just do nothing. The biggest complaints on this beast was its ghastly appearance and how its grief sounded so human it would scare fishermen- occasionally leading a few to their death, though it never seemed malicious.

    ———

    Geralt gets held up in a small port town Jaskier now calls home. The bard still sings his praises and Geralt has a reputation to uphold, and morals to keep- but this monster is one Geralt has never encountered before.
    It scares him.

    Summary

    Geralt and Jaskier stumble upon a town where everyone is friendly (suspicious) and people go missing every full moon (more suspicious). As the case goes on and things get progressively more tangled, Geralt slowly learns to examine and communicate his feelings. With Jaskier's help, of course.

    Summary

    “Oh. Oh that’s gold, Geralt! Really! I’m so glad you didn’t notice my bandaged fingers or the way fire fucking petrifies me- or oh, I don’t know, how holding shit made me whimper? But oh, I sorted your library and I cleaned the blood off the cobble after it all and- and I’m tired of this. I’m tired of your fucking bullshit and I’m tired of-“

    “I’m sorry.”

    The sincerity of that has Jaskier silent. It has him tense, it has him weak- really and truly weak. He wants to cry. He might cry, actually- especially when he met Geralt’s gaze and he sees tears in those cat-like eyes and he’s never wanted to reach out and wipe them away faster than he does now

    ———

    Jaskier leaves with the help of a portal. Finding himself on the mountain he eats some berries. Barely surviving he now has to deal with emotions. God he hates dealing with emotions.

    Summary

    The silence was loud. The silence that stretched after was absolutely deafening, and every breath that puffed out of his parted lips felt like his last as he laid there. As he waited. And he waited and waited until he turned around, almost expecting to see that Geralt left with Yennefer- but saw that Geralt was staring at him.

    And it hurts. Because he can’t tell if those blown out pupils are from Yennefer or because of him, and because he can’t tell if those knit brows were because of him or if it was at himself because fuck, Jaskier knows how much Geralt likes to beat himself up.

    And he hates how much he wants to comfort him despite it being Jaskier with eyes full of tears, looking at Geralt with so much hurt and confusion, as he laid his heart across his face and let the witcher see all of him and-

    ———

    Jaskier wakes up to Geralt making sweet, passionate love to Yennefer. Breakdowns ensue.

    Summary

    Summary

    I started with let's send Jaskier back up that mountain to yell at Geralt like he deserves and it just kind-of went from there. Jaskier is angry, Geralt is sorry (but won't fucking say it), the dwarves are good friends. Summaries are hard.

    Summary

    The first time Geralt had met him was in a tavern. The witcher had moved to the back corner, furthest away from the entrance. That’s where he had been.

    Inspired by the song "Dear Fellow Traveller" by Sea Wolf (no direct lyrics in the fic).

    Summary

    Geralt should have noticed something was off as soon as a bard started travelling with him willingly. When he sees Jaskier take a sword for him, dies, comes back to life, there's a lot of questions that arises.
