    Summary

    Most people’s grandmothers are known for their recipebooks. Jaskier’s grandmother, Dagma - a very normal woman with very normal blood - was no exception. Because she was very normal. In fact, some people would call her the most normal woman they’d ever met. And because she was a normal woman, she was very protective of her recipebook - as is normal for old women to be. No one except Jaskier ever asked after her recipebook anyhow. Perhaps the most abnormal thing about her was that she was an absolutely abysmal cook.
    The second most abnormal thing about her was that she was, in fact, half dragon.
    ---
    The one were Jaskier knows fire magic, the Witchers & Kaer Morhen begin to heal, and some Priests of the Eternal Fire get what's coming to them.

    Summary

    Lambert’s jaw twitched as he looked away. Vesemir could see him running calculations, carefully measuring his losses and gains. Asking had taken a lot out of him. He had never asked for help. Not as a child, not as a trainee, and now as a young man he was struggling with the old habit. Because this was a cry for help. Vesemir was certain of it. If it turned out to be a healthy desire, one that came from genuine enjoyment, then Vesemir would eat his damn felt hat. He wasn’t a judgmental man. Folks liked all sorts of things, and he wouldn’t view Lambert as any lesser for his predilection, but something felt off about this whole thing.

    Summary

    Look, it fucking - it wasn't supposed to go like this, alright?

    The contract had said it was a chort, and even though Lambert knew - he fucking knew - that humans couldn't be trusted to know a griffin from a lubberkin even if it was biting them in the ass and they had a fucking bestiary in their fucking hands…

    He'd certainly paid the price for it now though, hadn't he? All he wanted to do now was collect what he was owed and find a healer. But of course things can't even be that simple - not for him - not when some bard goes and destroys his payment in a tavern brawl. Now instead of the supplies he needed, the village has saddled him with the same bard as a guide. Things can't possibly get any worse, right?

    Right?

    Summary

    To be given to a witcher is to be given to Death Themself. One can either accept their fate, or make a run for it, and oh, isn't that just such a heavy weight to put on the shoulders of a child?

    Summary

    Geralt isn’t sure if it’s a blessing or a curse that their table is tucked away in the corner, where Jaskier can neither see them nor come close enough that he might. As much as he knows that he needs to talk to the bard, apologize for all that he’s said… he can’t help but treasure this moment of Jaskier’s happiness, the joy that he radiates while performing that would surely shatter as soon as he saw the Witcher.

    Even if it’s still Geralt he sings of.

    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

    Jaskier wasn't exactly sure what he had expected Kaer Morhen to be like but the keep was everything and nothing like it. The place was a dichotomy. Magnificent and sad in equal measures in its derelict state. Silent but full of noise. Cold yet filled with warmth.

    But most importantly, it was Geralt's home. Seeing him so relaxed, the sharpest edges rounded down with the knowledge of being safe and surrounded by his family was a beautiful sight to behold.

    Jaskier wished he too would relearn what safety felt like.

    Summary

    **Since there is oh so little Eskel or Lambert/ OC's I decided to fix that. This is completely self-indulgent.**
    Wayfinders existed among the elders. Feared and revered in equal measure they protected the world from evil, eventually becoming the blueprint mages attempted to replicate with witchers. Later, in their dwindling numbers, they would become guides and companions of witchers. When Geralt and Jaskier decide to follow up with a mysterious contract left on their inn room door, they never expect to stumble into one under strange circumstances. Now can the poor troubadour get his witcher and mysterious companion out of this mess? Probably not. He's going to damn well try, though.

    Summary

    In which Jaskier is rightfully paranoid that someone is following them, until it’s far too late, and Geralt deals with the consequences while also grappling with emotions and an injured bard. In addition, Geralt is an emotional dipshit and can’t take a hint, and two stupid idiots can’t figure out that they both care about each other.

    Excerpt:

    “The pair fell into silence once again. Geralt watched Jaskier’s eyes flicker to the darkness around the camp, looking for something. Someone. Geralt felt Jaskier’s pulse grow faster once again as the bard stifled a yawn.

    “What are you looking for?” Geralt asked apprehensively. His friend’s erratic behavior was beginning to unnerve him, and frankly, Geralt was worried about Jaskier. He felt like there was something the young bard wasn’t telling him, and he didn't like it.

    Jaskier yawned again, eyes dark. “Him.” He answered finally. “I can feel him watching us.”

    Summary

    "Eskel, you've always been a crap liar. Why're you having us on?"

    At his side, Eskel's sighs in relief. Jaskier almost pokes him in retribution. "It's a mutually beneficial arrangement," Jaskier sniffs.

    Lambert eyes Eskel. "How much is he paying you?"

     ~

    A sequel/remix of ghostinthelibrary's fake dating ficlet Rumors, in which Jaskier and Eskel's coworkers think they're dating, Jaskier asks Eskel to go with it, and they're about to do a test run during Eskel's family dinner.

    Summary

    He’s making mistakes as soon as he smells the blood at the mouth of the cave. But the burnt-sweet undertone of Swallow—and a lot of it—means it’s a witcher injured. Geralt can’t ignore that even if he wanted to.

    Summary

    (-or- 5 Times Lambert Helped an Injured Cat +1 Time Aiden Returned the Favor)

    But…something had stopped Lambert from just leaving the Cat there to bleed out & die in a spreading pool of blood & smashed potions vials.

    Of course, he might still die anyway — Lambert could hear the Cat's wheezing from his punctured lung with every labored breath tickling across his ear. Wouldn't be from lack of trying on Lambert's part though, he owed the other witcher that much at least.

    Just got to get the Cat over the next rise; to the Temple of Melitele waiting there at the base of the Mahakam Mountains. Let the priestesses fix him up to the point that Lambert's last Swallow could do the rest of the job.

    Then Lambert could take himself on his merry fucking way, never give the bastard a second thought.

    "Name's Aiden," the Cat groaned as they crested the hill, the poplar-flanked road leading from the temple's main gate looking particularly picturesque as it came into view.

    "Don't care," Lambert grunted back at his burden as he staggered onward, eager to never have to see this Cat ever again.

    Summary

    Haern Caduch was nestled in the Slopes of the Amell Mountains. It was a place not meant for love or laughter or life. It was a cruel and desolate place meant to turn boys into Witchers, bitter and hardened before they ever left for the Path- it did not matter how many died on that journey. Those that survived were that much stronger.

    Summary

    "Think about it." Lambert sits up, batting Geralt's hands away again. "This whole keep filled with alphas, no omegas around. Humans barely want anything to do with us, not like they can find any satisfaction there."

    "Pseudo-omegas kept the peace," Vesemir picks up, unexpectedly. "They always did, even before we had the potion for them."

    "Pseudo-omegas?"

    "The youngest adepts to have passed their final trial," Vesemir grunts. "We all did it. Spent a year being spoiled by and serving those who came before us."
