    Summary

    When Ciri first arrives at Kaer Morhen, Geralt is not father to her. He is destiny, protector—but he is new, and unpredictable. Ciri still dreams at night of running into Eist’s arms, letting him whisper her Skelliger lullabies until her heartbeat calms and she knows she is safe from the dark shapes that haunt her. She still dreams of riding on the saddle behind her grandmother, holding tight to her as she rides past the ominous form of the knight with the black-winged helmet and takes off his plumed head in one swing. In the dream, she can tell that her grandmother takes a savage delight in the act, in destroying what has caused Ciri fear. Ciri holds onto her, braces her hands against the solidity of her grandmother’s breastplate, lays her face against the blood and woodsmoke scent of her Cintran-blue cloak, and feels safe in the savagery.

    Geralt is not that for her. Still, he lets her go without speaking about it, does not prod, when she awakes sobbing from her dreams of long-dead comforts. 

    -

    “What exactly is Kaer Morhen?”

    “It’s where witchers go in the winter,” he tells her, without skipping a beat, and then pauses. “It’s… like a home. You’ll be safe there.”

    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

    Jaskier has had enough. It wasn't only the mountain, but all of the things before, that slowly broke his heart more and more every day. He loved Geralt with his whole heart, knowing it would never be enough, knowing he could never give Geralt all he deserves, but at least wanting to be there for him as a friend. But all he got was harsh treatment and harsher words. So he didn't wait, didn't look for him and left. He's got his own life to return to.

    But what happens, when the times stop being peaceful and the child Jaskier loves like his own is in danger? Will he help her find the man destiny bound her to?

    Summary

    Snippets of memories flash through his head, almost too swift to register. Familiar yellow eyes. An ugly smirk. The glint of a fellow cat's medallion in the sun. The sound of heartbeats surrounding him. The burning agony of a poisoned blade sliding home in his gut. Then, nothing. Absolutely nothing.

    The cat witcher slowly moves a hand to his abdomen and gasps at the flare of pain as his hand touches blood-drenched fabric. Not leather. He's been stripped of his armor. Gloves, too. He doesn't even have to reach back for his swords to know they're gone as well - they would be digging into his back if they were there. They even took his fucking boots.

    Jad and his band tried to kill him, stripped him of all his belongings, and-

    A dawning horror causes the blood to freeze in his veins. It all makes sense now, even to his addled brains. The cramped quarters, the pine box, the muffled world around him.

    Aiden of Skellige has been buried alive.

    Summary

    "I don't want to remember, but I...regret that I had to forget."

    Geralt has always had the ability to see the future in his dreams, only he had to forget. While on the Path, his work is to kill monsters, but his main goal is to avoid destiny as long as possible.

    Regis has always had been on the run from the prophecy he knows he is involved in, but has no knowledge of what that prophecy is. A man can only run for so long, but how about a vampire?

    Fate. Destiny. Call it what you will, but it will always bring those who are bound to each other together.

    The smell of wormwood lingers in Geralt's mind even after waking and has stayed with him for years.

    The smell of the most tempting blood, elder blood, has been with Regis since he first dreamed it.

    Sometimes, running from destiny will only bring you to it faster.

    Summary

    Shortly after his graduation and not-so-willingly leaving the city-house inhabited by the Countess de Stael, Jaskier finds himself on the road with nothing but a bit of food in his pockets, a stolen bottle of wine and his lute on his back.
    As it turns out, he has a penchant not only for music but also for befriending Witchers.

    Over the years, Dragon!Jaskier hoards Witchers instead of gold, stabs some people and falls in love along the way.

    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

    Jaskier was standing on a balcony overlooking the Witcher’s below spar. He couldn’t deny that he enjoyed watching the show, he was only human after all and they were all very attractive, but that wasn’t the main reason he was out here.

    He was writing a new song for the wolf Witchers, a song of their bravery, their love of one another, their dedication to the path. What better inspiration than to watch them as he wrote.

     

    Or

    Jaskier stays out in the cold and Geralt helps warm him up.

    Summary

    Lambert liked the silence, he liked to sit with a book and mug of water for hours on end before Aubry shoved him out to sleep. The days where he had lessons or chores were spent in the room with Aubry and the silence. It was nice.

    But Lambert was also a pain in the ass, he knew this and everyone else knew this. He pulled pranks when he could and stole from the others so he could place the objects around the Keep, all for fun.

    It cost him a lot of beatings. Not fun.

    So when Vesemir handed him a small green book with a smirk he could tell something was about to happen. And when Vesemir challenged him to learn Elder and translate the book with a tone that sounded like he never believed Lambert could, well Lambert had to prove him wrong.
