    Summary

    By the time something happened, it was a cheerful sunny day, and her hearing was completely gone. A notice regarding her healthcare insurance had been slipped under her door, and, as she eyed the packet lazily, wondered dimly whether she should get diagnosed with deafness.

    Wouldn’t serve a purpose, she supposed, it’s already my time. She settled back in her plum-coloured recliner and tilted her head upwards into the sunlight. She heaved a sigh, and held it. She wondered whether it would be like the movies, for it was her time to go.

    Her cat-clock ticked.

    But, it wasn’t her time.

    Her time was somewhere else.

    Matilda was 64, was given a weak hand in life, and —even now— as an old, retired woman— she was left unsatisfied with it.

    Her cat-clock tocked.

    Summary

    The road in front of me, it isn't long
    The door in front of me, it's open
    I carry no agony, I no longer have to wait

    My father is also expecting me
    Thinking of the reunion, I am filled with love.

    Summary

    It's Brea vs. SkekGra in a knockdown, dragout battle of wits and wills for the Most Stubborn Being on Thra Championship!

    (Or to put it another way: In which we find out whether Brea wants SkekGra to try being social with other Rebels more badly than SkekGra wants her to jump down a Crystal shaft, or vice versa.)

    CW: discussions of mental illness and (briefly) suicidality, referenced genocide and war

    Absolutely the kind of deep-exploration-of-feels stuff one could never waste time with in an official fantasy tie-in story. ^^ Yay fanfic!

    This one should be updating very quickly for me, because of how close it is to being completely done.

    Summary

    “Don’t tell Yennefer, but I know I can’t hide the crow’s feet any longer,” Jaskier continued, as though the lines weren’t witnesses of years spent smiling until his eyes crinkled. “I am not like I used to be.”

    “Your eyes are still blue.”

    Jaskier was quiet for a moment, just looking at Geralt, thinking, searching. “Most people’s eyes become blue when they get old.” There was something in his smile that seemed not quite wrong, but…wistful. “Your eyes will stay golden. Always young.”

    or: When Jaskier gets too old to accompany Geralt on his hunts, they retire to the coast. Sometimes it's hard, sometimes it's beautiful and sometimes it's devestating. But it is always, always worth it.

    Previously a one-shot called "To rest their weary wings"
