    Summary

    There was a word echoing in his mind with each step of the guards in the hallway outside his cell. It radiated through his bones and into the tattered soul beneath. Over and over again with each beat of his heart until he could scarcely breathe through it.

    Betrayal.

    Geralt had betrayed him.

    Summary

    Geralt was standing wrong. He was hunched. Touching the tree--not leaning on it, just touching it lightly. He seemed...tentative. That was it. That was the word. And that word hung very strangely on Geralt.

    "What's wrong?" Jaskier asked, because something was wrong.

    ---

    Basalisk venom leaves Geralt blind. Jaskier finds their relationship changing as he cares for a suddenly vulnerable Witcher.

    Summary

    Summary

    "Did you hear?" a voice at a nearby table asked. "The witcher was spotted outside of town."
    Jaskier stiffened slightly as another voice answered. "Really? Coming to get that swamp beast, eh?"
    "Must be," said the first voice. "I guess we'll see if he can manage it."
    Jaskier stood stiffly, grabbing his bag and moving quickly for the door, ignoring the calls of the tavern owner. Have to get out, have to-
    His thoughts were cut off with a grunt as he ran straight into something extremely solid. He fell to the floor with a crash and bursts of laughter from the patrons. Jaskier started to get up when the shadow of what he'd run into fell over him. He looked up slowly, dreading what he would see.
    The black boots and pants, the chest the size of a barrel, that white hair and those golden eyes…
    "Geralt…"

    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

    Imagine Geralt the way you usually imagine him (I imagine him as portrayed by dear Mr. Cavill), but younger -- much younger. And Jaskier (I imagine him as portrayed by dear Mr. Batey) already looks so young and vibrant :-) All this, because it's 3:30 am here and I can't sleep because I keep imagining what it would be like if Geralt and Jaskier were high-school sweethearts.

    To be a teensy bit more specific, what if they were attending Hogwarts together???

    That's all I am gonna say in the summary, friends! Oh and one more thing: one particular character in my story has redeemed himself and is now a great guy and a great and beloved professor at Hogwarts!

    Haven't had any time to read and revise for mistakes, so feel free to let me know about typos :-)

    Summary

    Ciri was weak.

    She knew this; she could feel it in the way she woke up shaking, tear tracks on her face, afraid she was still locked in the nightmare of everyone she loved turning to ash as she failed to save them, afraid the violence inside her was being used against her will to destroy the last shreds of home she had left. She could see it in the way the witchers looked at her now, somewhere between pitying and wary, like they couldn’t quite trust that she was safe to have around, but they felt bad for her anyway. She could hear it in the way Geralt and Yennefer would stop whispering to each other when she entered the room, heads jerking apart like she wouldn’t notice they had obviously been discussing her behind her back.

    She was weak, and being weak was not an option.

    --

    Jaskier decides if no one else is going to address this child's trauma, he'll do it his damn self. And maybe deal with his own at the same time.

    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

    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

    This is basically inspired by the beginning of the fic cause up until now only 3 chapters are uploaded and jaskier and yennefer start to find comfort in each other and fall in love. So...I wanted to draw this little piece of art to capture the feeling that I got from both of them while reading those chapters

    This is fanart that I created after I started reading this fic :
    of longing and heartache and lust

    for the ship:Geralt z Rivii | Geralt of Rivia/Jaskier | Dandelion/Yennefer z Vengerbergu | Yennefer of Vengerberg

    Edit: I made a second one

    There's also a third one now....it kinda became a series? Of fanart? I may continue...?? Probably

    Summary

    Geralt and Jaskier stumble upon a town where everyone is friendly (suspicious) and people go missing every full moon (more suspicious). As the case goes on and things get progressively more tangled, Geralt slowly learns to examine and communicate his feelings. With Jaskier's help, of course.

    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

    In another life, Jaskier’s last coin may have landed heads up and he’d have gone to Posada to play in front of adoring (or at least non hostile) crowds. But no, it had landed on tails and he’d turned his boots towards the capital of Aedirn. And was promptly chased up a tree by feral slavering beasts.

    Or:

    Jaskier meets Eskel first instead of Geralt. A story told in drabbles.

    Summary

    Screams and shouts echoed through the corridors surrounding the chamber. Yennefer found she didn’t care, it was probably all in her mind. She closed her eyes once more, allowing herself to just hang.

    She didn’t even notice anyone entering the chamber until she heard a voice. She didn’t have the energy to look up. Another illusion. More pain. Only pain. Don’t look.

    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.
