    Summary

    A century before Blaviken, before sorceresses and bards and Child Surprises, a child soldier leaves Kaer Morhen with dreams of becoming a hero. In some versions of things, those dreams are smothered, pulled under by all hatred and fear the world has to offer. This is not that story.

    For sometimes, a tavern in Posada hosts its guests a few decades early. Sometimes, an older professor wanting to see something new in the world stumbles across a boy who has not yet been beaten down by it. Sometimes, their lives become intertwined, and a boy grows up knowing love where previously there had been none.

    After a winter apart, Geralt and Jaskier reunite for their second year together on the Path. They will reunite for years to come, sometimes accompanied, sometimes not, but always Witcher and bard side by side.
    ---
    A continuation of The Opposite of Love's Indifference, an AU where Geralt meets Jaskier much, much earlier than before. He's only been on the Path for a few months, and Jaskier is a professor who never quite made it as a traveling bard. Please read that first!

    Summary

    Everyone else (and I really do mean *everyone*) figures out what Geralt and Jaskier are to each other before they figure it out themselves.

    Told in alternating POVs (outsider, geralt, outsider, jaskier, outsider, etc). Some of the outsider POVs will be canon Witcher characters, and others are my witcher-verse OCs.

    If you like mutual pining, dumbassery, boatloads of affection, and more emotional maturity than the cowards at netflix will ever let our favorite boys show, I think you’ll like this fic.

    Summary

    When Geralt asked to spend the winter with Jaskier in Oxenfurt, he expected the merriment and noise and excitement he got. What he didn't expect was finding out that Jaskier suffered from seasonal depressive episodes, despite the bard's best attempts at pretending like everything was fine.

    Fluff, love, friendship, community, support, acceptance. It's a feel good fic dedicated to people who don't feel good in the winter.

    Summary

    Geralt… would really love a hug. But he’s a sad grump, so he goes about getting a hug in a needlessly stupid way: cuddling Jaskier in his sleep and then blaming it on Jaskier when they wake up. (Jaskier is of course fine with this.)


    Now it’s the middle of the night, and this is beginning to look a lot like one of those things they don’t talk about. Jaskier, deep in sleep, is not quite touching Geralt, and that’s what’s getting under Geralt’s skin, as much as he hates to admit it.

     

    He’s discovering that it’s much easier to admit these things to himself when Jaskier is asleep.

     

    The problem is this: Geralt used to be bothered by Jaskier’s tendency toward physical affection. Over time he grew to tolerate it, and then to expect it, and then, now, to enjoy it. To crave it.

     

    But he doesn’t know how to ask for it.

    Summary

    Having spent most of the night up with Jaskier, who’s struggling with a head-cold now that winter is well and truly upon them, Geralt has less patience than he usually does. He pokes at his eggs a little more violently than he should, and bristles when the rooster crows loudly from the yard. Eskel has always been the patient one, and Geralt was sent downstairs after smacking Jaskier a little too hard for pulling his hair, leaving Eskel upstairs to rub salve on the pup’s bottom.

    When Lambert knocks over Geralt’s coffee for the second time, he loses it.

     

    'Just sit the fuck down!'

     

    A snippet from the life of Little Lambert

    Summary

    He has the gold. Enough needs to stay behind to make sure that he has everything else from the city. He can’t move on until he has enough supplies to carry him to the foot of the mountain nearby — but he spotted a tea shop on the corner and knows that Vesemir’s present must surely be in there.

    Just as he lifts the ring to the light again, brow pinched as he examines the pattern and design one last time, there’s a familiar voice at his side.

    “Oh, Geralt,” the lilt of a bard says brightly, “that’s gorgeous!”

    --

    A festive tale where our bard has instilled all sorts of Yuletide traditions into Kaer Morhen; including gifts!

    Summary

    After a traumatic motorcycle accident, Geralt is left with brain damage. Aphasia, the doctors call it, rendering him unable to read, write, and speak, (well, almost).

    Escaping to the city to get away from pitying looks, he meets his across-the-hall neighbor, Jaskier, an eccentric up-and-coming musician who's determined to befriend him despite the barrier in communication.

    Armed with hums, grunts, and 'fucks', will Geralt let the idiot in room 604 break down his walls, or will his past trauma be too much for him to overcome? Read and find out.

    Summary

    Priscilla, tired of Jaskier's empty promises, sets an ultimatum.

    -

    "As long as you have the choice between him and someone, anyone, else, you’ll always pick him. Am I wrong?"
    "You choose me tonight, or you choose him. And that will be that. I won’t wait for you anymore. I can’t. You stay with me, or this is goodbye.”

    Summary

    It goes like this:

    A boy is abandoned, swept up, and transformed. A boy grows up learning not to feel. A man spends lifetimes alone, battered by the world and its hatred, until he is hardened beyond repair. Not even the joyous songs of a beautiful lark can repair the decades of cruelty. He learns kindness, perhaps, and may even know love, but he will never be the same as that boy left at the side of the road so long ago.

    And yet. What if it went like this?

    A boy is abandoned, swept up, and transformed. A young man sets out into the world, still clinging onto the hope of becoming a hero. But he is not alone anymore. There is now someone there, someone to stitch him together when he's injured, someone to dry his tears when they threaten to fall and to tell him it will be okay.

    What would the boy become?
    ---
    An AU where Geralt meets Jaskier much, much earlier than before. He's only been on the Path for a few months, and Jaskier is a professor who never quite made it as a traveling bard. Good thing he's a teacher, because someone did not raise this poor Witcher correctly. It's time to learn emotional maturity!

    Summary

    It wasn’t fair. That’s.. Jaskier was right, when he whispered it in a fit of agony. It isn’t fair. Geralt’s heart and head dragging him after the bard, managing to have Jaskier pop up in his soul no matter how hard he tries to pluck him. Like a weed, like a dandelion- Geralt was the cobbled street and Jaskier the obnoxiously stubborn plant tearing through his hard surface. It wasn’t fair. It wasn’t fair that Jaskier fell in love and it wasn’t fair that Geralt didn’t take long at all to follow- and it wasn’t fair that Geralt tied himself to a princess and a witch, it wasn’t fair that Geralt couldn’t escape the path.
    It wasn’t fair that Jaskier had to face him so often. If life could give me one blessing.. life didn’t give him a blessing, it gave him a curse. A curse of heartache, of a rejection he caused in his own outburst- because as Geralt meets those coastal eyes, blue waves and salty tears he knows he’s fucked up.

    ———

    Geralt, despite knowing how Jaskier feels about him, still sends him away during the dragon hunt. Despite that, Geralt keeps on finding himself face to face with Jaskier- so.. he eventually stops fighting it.

    Summary

    His freedom was drawing to a close when Jaskier finally met the only man who could ever satisfy him. He had one week left and had chosen to spend it in paradise. Little did he expect to find true love, let alone the one man who would go to the ends of the Continent to protect him and show him what he'd been missing all his life...home, family and his wings to fly.

    Kaedwen Keep promised unlimited adult distractions at an all-inclusive price. Good food, world-class liquor, and beautiful people of every size, shape and colour. He’d read through all the descriptions of venues that featured live music, but then Jaskier’s gaze had landed on the words ‘indulgent and welcoming nightlife for all tastes’ and his mind had been made up.

    Summary

    Kinktober Day 29: Hair Trigger + Praise + Trust
    (is unconditional love a kink? because if so, let's add that in there)

    Geralt doesn't do relationships, or sex, or friends, or people. So when he lets Jaskier tag along for drinks after work, lets himself flirt back, even invites Jaskier back to his apartment, he has no idea what the fuck he was thinking. The only thing more terrifying than Jaskier finding out his secret is letting Jaskier walk out the door.

    Summary

    Dreams, for a number of people, were nothing but the imaginings of the mind. For some though, Jaskier included, they included clues pointing towards one's soulmate.

    --

    Every few months, the dream returned, sometimes with seasonal differences, but always the empty, beckoning city. Geralt realized what it was the second year: A soulmate's call. Fuck.
