    Summary

    .

    Then Geralt heard the whisper.

    A slight movement of air like the parting of curtains, open for a moment then gone, powerful and yet empty. An impossible magic flickered through the universe. A wrongness that itched at his skin. And as the unmoment echoed away, it was followed by an agonized sound, halfway to a whimper, halfway to a sob.

    Geralt spun toward it. Instinctively acting against the threat; back across the floor and down, blade held to flesh before a second breath was even drawn.

    But instead of a threat, a naked, terrified man lay, sickly and shivering, on the hot stones by the fireplace. His arms drawn up to hide his face, his knees tight to his chest. Fear and pain written in every contour of his being.

    "Jaskier?"

    ***

    Five years ago, Jaskier had vanished.
    Though Geralt desperately searched for him, no trace was ever found. Not even magic could track him. It was like he had been somehow erased from existence...Then the bard returned, broken and transformed. His body, an intricate tapestry of cruel, beautiful spellwork. Silver threads burned deep into flesh and mind.

    Now magic flowed instead of blood in his veins.

    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

    Jaskier was half way through a lackluster rendition of one of his least popular songs when his world went static.

    In his ears, a foreign heartbeat thundered, ragged and wounded. It felt as though his lungs had gone sideways with the sensation. Even the air itself tasted like it was charged with lightning, bright and bitter as ozone. Deep in his gut, he felt something urging himself forward, pulling him like some invisible string towards an unknown destination.

    Something brushed across his senses, rough as tree bark, and sinking into his skin to crawl like ants beneath. He froze, eyes darting around the room like he could spot whoever it was that had sent his senses scrambling against the hard earned shields he was always careful to maintain. In his hands, his fingers faltered, melody disappearing beneath the wave of wrong that felt like it was choking him.

    The answer was simple--and impossible.

    There was a Sentinel here.

    Summary

    At first, he thinks the magic missed him. There was no pain or any vibration from his medallion to indicate something had struck him. It didn’t explain the wave of power or the sinking sensation in his gut.

    He turned at the sound of footsteps and watched the Jaskier step toward him, looking strange.

    Those eyes the color of sunlight skies met his a moment before he went grey all over and collapsed into ash.

    Summary

    “What the fuck?” Geralt spat, dragging the man to his feet before thrusting him up against the wall. He leaned in menacingly, amber eyes flashing. “Who are you?”

    “A performer!” The man squeaked, raising his hands and flinching away from Geralt. “Hired by ealdorman to perform a bit of mummery! I’m the spirit of Yuletide!”

    Geralt leaned in closer. “And the bit about feasting on the living flesh?”

    The man stank of panic but he managed to answer. “Performer’s license! The old graveyard here has several ghost stories around it, so I played into that!” He swallowed hard. “I was only supposed to spook them in good fun, I swear! Look, the rest of my company!” He pointed a shaking finger behind Geralt.

    Geralt growled and tightened his grip on the man’s collar before looking back.

    “Just a bit of fun,” the man repeated, this time more quietly. “Witcher, I apologize. I didn’t mean to cause alarm.”

    Summary

    Jaskier is hurt after what happened on the mountain. How could, after years and years of traveling together, being friends and maybe more... how could Geralt throw it back in his face and toss him aside? For a bond that was was nothing more than a farce?

    Summary

    "Witchers can't feel. They have no emotions, no desire, no distaste. They can't want, and so they ask for nothing. Nothing but contracts to kill."
    These are words that Geralt lives by. They make up who he is. He is a Witcher, and Witcher's don't- can't- feel.
    Jaskier seems to think otherwise.
    Or,
    Geralt wants something, Jaskier notices, and teaches him that it's okay to want.

    Summary

    For a moment only their breaths resonate in the chambers. Jaskier’s fast and uneven syncs in and out with the witcher’s, which is already back to its very slow, peaceful rhythm. Outside the day starts to finally wake up. Geralt can feel it even though the lightness that barely appears in the sky. He can hear the very distant hum of the early birds, their constant, happy chatter, and their thrumming flutter of wings. His hand never stops touching Jaskier. He runs his fingers through his hair and traces the shape of his face. And the witcher starts to feel that he might drift off again.
    “Geralt?” Jaskier suddenly whispers and holds his head up.
    “Hmm?” the witcher hums in lieu of a question.

    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

    By his understandably shoddy memory, Jaskier had died over 1300 times since he first drew breath several hundred years ago.

     Somehow, none of those deaths ever seemed to hurt as much as the dreams of Geralt.

    Summary

    “What do you want me to say?” Jaskier asks. There are tears prickling in his eyes, not from sadness but from pent-up emotion, from his sheer, stupid powerlessness, and he blinks them back as hard as he can. “That he’s never treated me as anything more than a friend, but my heart is his, it always has been?” It hurts, like a physical thing, a hollow, aching pit at the heart of him, to admit it aloud without hiding it behind lyrics and melody. He keeps talking anyway. “That he cares about people, so deeply, and I know how he’d react if I told him, and he wasn’t able to fix anything, and I refuse to put him through that? I won’t do it. Please don’t ask me to.”

    ***
    Jaskier gets cursed, the sort of "True Love's Kiss will save you from a painful death" deal he'd have found charming in a ballad but not so much when it's his life on the line.
    Now, if only Jaskier could convince Geralt that admitting who he loves will only hurt the both of them.

    Summary

    Jaskier sat on that rock, confessing his love. He tried to promise he'd be better, tried to coax him into a much needed rest. But as he handed his heart over, Geralt tossed it right off that mountain. And then, Geralt made it clear that he wasn't even interested in being friends. So he left, and stumbled into Lambert, broken and grieving over Aiden's death, only days before they were supposed to meet.
