    Summary

    Excerpt:
    Geralt had said many an unfair thing to his bard, his friend. But the callous words he shouted atop that cursed mountain might very well be the worst yet. He regretted them as soon as they tore from his throat, but he was too angry, too humiliated to apologise. And then Jaskier had walked away, stinking of pain and sadness. That might’ve been the worst part of all. At least when Yennefer had said Geralt had already lost her, she’d only smelled of anger and disappointment. But the acrid stench of Jaskier’s heartbreak was somehow harder to stomach. Geralt didn’t know why. All he knew was that he hated it, and that he missed the smell of wildflowers and sunshine that usually surrounded his friend.

    Summary

    Vipers are almost entirely impervious to poison, but Letho’s face is pale, veins streaking dark through off-grey skin even from this distance. The idea of him having taken enough of anything to give himself toxicity is alarming, to say nothing of how his solid black eyes are already fluttering like he can barely keep them open. He looks dazed when he lifts his head at the sound of Vesemir’s voice, listing unsteadily under the weight of whatever he’s bundled onto his back.

    “What’s happened to you?” Vesemir calls warily, starting forward.

    The next step Letho takes proves to me too much. His leg buckles at an odd angle, sending him to his knees with a teeth-rattling thud. He barely manages to croak “Help him,” before falling right on his face.

     

    (Of the ways Geralt imagined Jaskier coming to Kaer Morhen, carried in by a Viper never made the list.)

    Summary

    “You… said centaurs were myths,” Cirilla said after an indeterminable amount of time, squinting at Jaskier with her arms crossed over her chest.

    “No,” Jaskier said, and Geralt couldn’t see his face from this angle but he could hear the smirk, “I said they were mythical creatures. If I recall correctly you were the one who told me you didn’t believe in their existence.” He paused briefly, rasping a hand over the stubble on his chin. “And I didn’t even exaggerate any of my songs!”


    Years ago, before Geralt broke his heart in a bid to keep him safe, Jaskier taught Ciri about the myths and legends of the continent. Today, Ciri isn’t the only one in for a revelation.

    Summary

    Witchers were the lowest form of life in the eyes of the continent, and as the youngest, the runt, Lambert was forever the lowest ranking Witcher.

    He'd never once known the thrill of power, superiority, respect.

    Not until the day the bard lowered himself to his knees with a coy smirk and said, "please sir, let me worship you."

    Summary

    Jaskier has spent many years watching over Witchers. When Destiny puts another on his path, well, who is he to deny her?
    Then, nigh on two decades later, he takes his leave. For, if anyone knew how dangerous a fire inside your soul could be, it was Julian Alfred Pankrats.
    Just as he is set to leave, however, an old friend calls to him and he is sucked right back into the thick of it.

    Summary

    “I love them,” he gestured towards the Keep, “but I like you.”

    “Right,” Jaskier responded taking another drink, “so, go inside.”

    Geralt felt a rush of frustration, words failing him as they always did. “You don’t understand.”

    Summary

    Geralt is on his feet at once when the portal opens in his room, reaching for his sword and unsheathing it in one smooth, practiced motion as he leaps from the bed. He squints against the light pouring into the dimness of the room, eyes stinging at the contrast, growling low in his chest on instinct at the invasion. His medallion hums like a bee against his chest, reacting to incredibly strong magic in the immediate vicinity. He shifts his weight, ready to attack-

    Only to nearly stumble with the change in balance when a puff of orange smoke at his side causes something to wrap around his wrist. He snarls, turning and raising his sword for a blow.

    And then nearly drops the blade entirely at the sight of a painfully-familiar bard at his side, dangling from his arm with shining handcuffs joining their wrists.

    (after the mountain, geralt and jaskier have gone their separate ways) (until a drunken night at a pub with a sorcerer leads to jaskier accidentally getting them handcuffed together courtesy of the world's WORST wingmage)

    Summary

    As Jaskier stumbled away from the Dragon Mountains heading in what he hoped was the direction of Poviss (where he could get positively fucking plastered at the first tavern he came across) he wondered if this was truly it. He also wondered if perhaps, had he shown Geralt his true nature beyond some half-baked dismissals and elusions to Elven heritage, he could have spared himself this anguish one way or another. Maybe Geralt would have rid the Continent of him outright, maybe Jaskier could have been more useful had he allowed Geralt to truly see what he is capable of. Regardless, Jaskier is stumbling down a mountain alone.

    Geralt made a huge fucking mistake (shocker, very much not on brand for him, etc). He regretted the words as soon as they left his mouth after entirely side-stepping his brain. Roach huffed indignantly as he approached, which, fair enough. What the fuck was he going to do?

    OR: A Post-Mountain (and Leshen-Eskel [Leskel?]) fix-it featuring a Bad-ass-Part-Leshen Jaskier, Pining/Dad Geralt, Exasperated Ciri/the rest of the Kaer Morons and the happy ending that these traumatised, worthy idiots deserve.

    Summary

    After the events of the mountain, Geralt feels a loss so deep, he fears he will never be able to recover from it. The damage he has done is enough to send even the most forgiving away. Jaskier is gone. And there is nothing he can do to change that.

    Geralt regrets it. He can only hope that Jaskier is safe during the wartime that Nilfguard brings. He can only hope he has somewhere warm to go, and food to eat. That he is safe and sheltered.

    He doesn't have to wonder for long. He invokes the Law of Surprise.

    Summary

    The anger comes later, once the fresh hurt has left him.

    After the mountain, Jaskier tries his best to forget about Geralt of Rivia. It would be far easier if the Witcher would stop somehow getting Jaskier involved in his messes, or if he stopped trying to apologise, badly.

    Jaskier is a wanted man, Nilfgaard is on the move, a princess is missing and a Witcher is wanted. There's a sorceress who has made it her one goal in life to annoy him. Somehow none of these are his biggest problem, your past will always catch up with you, no matter how hard you try to outrun it.

    Or,

    Jaskier attempts to outrun all his problems at once, he does not succeed in the slightest.

    Summary

    “You are pregnant.” It was not a question. He did not know how she knew.

    “What?” Jaskier spluttered out as he sat curled up in the bathroom. “That’s impossible.”

    “You fell in love with a Witcher, my boy. Nothing is impossible.”

    She had been right, of course. Jaskier didn’t know how or why, but somehow in those scarce nights of pleasure, he had become pregnant. It seemed like a giant joke. Yet, as all things were with a Witcher, it was never a joke.

    OR

    Geralt abandoned Jaskier when neither of them know he’s pregnant and the two brothers come in to save poor Jaskier. Chaos ensues during following winter at Kaer Morhen.

    Summary

    His mistake was building so much of his life around Geralt. He'd always been that way, wriggling himself in where he wasn't wanted: with the Pankratzs, Marx's damned lyrical club, the Cintran court. He did his best to maintain a clean break- carefully pulling his belongings from Roach's saddlebags, sewing his leg back up at the bottom of the mountain, avoiding any mention of wolf witchers, and escaping Rience on his own. // He's arse over tits indebted to Geralt. He doesn't even need to apologize when he's knocking on Jaskier's door at dusk clutching his child surprise.
    .
    The eyes disappeared for a moment and Geralt felt like collapsing but the peephole didn't close. Instead after an endless minute, pale fingers poked out offering... something. Geralt took it and looked down at his own fingers. A real Nilfgaardian silver penny. A rare sight these days. Jaskier must have been checking for a doppler. // Geralt doesn't want to think about why he'd felt it was necessary.
    .
    "She's called the Mischief Maker-" Jaskier thumped on the wall, "and she's not just a wagon Geralt. She's my home now. My livelihood. All wrapped up in one and I won't let you part us. She's on wheels Geralt."

    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

    After the mountain Jaskier is (rightfully) sad, angry and heartbroken. In his heartbreak he writes the song "Burn Butcher Burn".

    And for a few years it goes relatively well. He sings, he gets paid for his songs, and he tries without success to get over the Witcher that hates him so much. Until one day, during one of his performances, he spots someone in the corner of the Inn he's performing at.

    That white hair and those golden eyes are unmistakable. And Jaskier knows he's in trouble.

    And it doesn't help that Jaskier spots him while singing Burn Butcher Burn.

    And it doesn't help either that Geralt has to save Jaskier from a group of drunks.
