    Summary

    “You cook now?”

    “Yes, they do!” Keira‘s cheery voice calls from the other room. “And they’re actually rather talented!” she says as she finally makes her appearance in the kitchen with a bottle of wine in hand.

    “Since when?” Geralt asks.

    “Since we settled here?” Lambert says as they turn to Keira. “That sound right?”

    Summary

    In the heat of an argument, Geralt exclaimed "The next time some married woman is about to tempt you to her bed, turn her down and you can have at me!”

    Jaskier can turn down a married woman, and it turns out Geralt is willing to follow through on those impulsive words.

    Summary

    It’s Jaskier’s first time wintering at Kaer Morhen. When he comes to Geralt’s room in the middle of the night, the witcher is sure what he’s after, and it has nothing to do with some imaginary “haunting”.
    Or
    Jaskier can’t sleep because of ghosts and Geralt responds by sexing him up, much to his delight and confusion.

    New summary courtesy of maiNuoire:
    Jaskier: I have ghosts, can I crash here?
    Geralt: Sure, climb in, are they in your dick? Let me help...
    Jaskier: ... wut.

    Summary

    After the disastrous dragon hunt, Jaskier gives Geralt his one wish though it will cause him eternal pain to do so. Higher vampires mate for life, only ever giving their heart to their one. Unfortunately for Jaskier, he has already given his heart to the witcher without realizing it. When a vampire's one rejects their heart, they will forever live with chronic, inescapable pain for which there is no cure.

    So Jaskier sheds the skin of the joyful human bard and returns to Oxenfurt to step back into the roles he left behind--Professor Pankratz, Julian the Viscount de Lettenhove, and Dandelion the spy. With Nilfgaard gearing up to go to war, Jaskier is faced with decisions he never wanted to make, a guild to protect, a war to win, a princess to find, a sorceress to save (however begrudgingly), and a pain in his chest that only gets worse the longer the witcher is near.

    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

    Jaskier knows that as a Fae he should stay as far from Witchers as he can. But then he crosses paths with Geralt and well...Jaskier never has done what he should. How can he say no when he's faced with the swirling vortex of destiny that is the White Wolf?
    So what he has to work twice as hard to conceal his identity? So what Geralt might kill him or run him off if he finds out that Jaskier isn't a mere human bard? Jaskier's never been happier. Which means it's only a matter of time before something comes along to screw that up for him.

    Summary

    Ten years ago, Geralt nearly killed Jaskier for want of a few hours' rest. In a moment of panic and desperation, he'd wished for a piece of the bard that he could take with him forever--something that would transcend the inevitability of his death. The djinn granted him Hadria--a baby djinn, who bears his blood and Jaskier's.

    Eight years later, Geralt abandons them both on the side of the mountain after the disastrous dragon hunt. He tells himself that they'll be fine, so long as they stick together. And he might've been right, had Nilfgaardian soldiers not kidnapped Jaskier.

    This year, when he arrives at Kaer Morhen... it's to anger and contempt, as he's forced to face the consequences of his actions head-on. The family he abandoned is broken--and not all of their wounds are immediately apparent. The family he brings with him is also broken--and unlikely to find quarter amongst angry Witchers out for blood.

    Geralt's apology is long overdue... but is it too little, too late?

    --

    There's a bard loose in Kaer Morhen. If you listen closely, you can hear him sobbing.

    Summary

    Sometimes, Jaskier would muse about the past. Pick apart the moments and analyse all the ways in which he was being foolish. And he’d been very, very foolish for the past twenty years.

    Summary

    The problem wasn’t really the talking. Geralt had heard humans talking constantly every time he’d been within a quarter-mile of civilization his entire adult life. No, it wasn't the talking at all. The trouble with Jaskier was that he cared about the answers.

    In which Geralt learns to face himself, his relationships, and his place in a human-dominated world. Taking place in the gap between the meeting in Posada and the banquet in Cintra, this story explores growth, trauma recovery, mental health, friendship, family, and societal bigotry.

    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.
