    Summary

    Rough cotton of Geralt’s shirt scratches his burn like sandpaper, the heat of the body warming it into prickles of pain, but Jaskier only closes his eyes, willing his body to calm down. Another pair of hands encircles his chest, and he feels almost feverish skin over his own, chaos melting into his muscles, mending the wounds.

    It’s useless, he knows, the burns already healed into jagged, uneven pieces, but the ache recedes, leaving exhaustion thrumming through the body.

    Summary

    "Did you really leave him on that mountain?" Yennefer asks.

    Geralt shifts uncomfortably. There's much he regrets about that day. "It was not my finest hour."

    Yennefer smiles without any humor. "No. No it was not."

    Summary

    “I would like to borrow a shirt, please.” Jaskier says again before he waits expectantly. Geralt stares at him blankly. They’re parting today for the winter. The entire reason Geralt is going through his pack is to make sure nothing else of the bard’s has gotten mixed in with his things; Jaskier has a longstanding habit of sneaking things in for Geralt to carry, and the bard is far too spacey to be counted on to remember them all.

    “We’re separating today,” Geralt points out at last. Four years into whatever it is he has with the bard makes him almost say ‘until spring,’ but a lifetime of watching people walk away stays him. He knows better than to put fragile hopes out into the world. People smash them far too easily. Jaskier, for his part, sighs as if Geralt is missing an obvious point.

    “Yes, precisely!” The bard says, moving one hand to his hip so he can swing the other out widely. “And there’s a giant world of creepy crawlies out there! Beasts that would love nothing more than to devour a succulent specimen such as myself.”

     

    (Jaskier asks to borrow a shirt to protect himself from monsters) (things escalate from there)

    Summary

    "You have very skilled fingers," offers Geralt, doing his best to look at Jaskier from under his lashes and dip his voice low with suggestion. “I wonder what else they can do.”

    And Jaskier, singer of romantic ballads and one of the most prolific lovers to walk the Continent, blinks at him and responds:

    "Well, not to brag, but I’ve given a few good puppet shows in my day."

    Perhaps Geralt needs to practise looking from under his lashes a touch better.

     

    Or: Geralt realises he's in love with Jaskier and decides to do something about it. He tries flirting, which goes about as well as can be expected.
