    Summary

    Jaskier doesn’t actually know how much time has passed since the black-cloaked Nilfgaardians grab him after a performance in a shitty tavern in the backcountry of northern Kaedwen. He’d assumed--foolishly, apparently--that he was far enough north that any Nilfgaardian soldiers would be few and far between, likely just scouts or even deserters. It would have been hard to actually get any further north--the little backwater town where he’d been singing was just a day from the mountains. Anymore travel, and he’d find himself skirting the Trail up to Kaer Morhen, the Warlord’s Keep, and, well. He’s brazen, but not that brazen.

    (or: a wandering bard bites off more than he can chew with the political ballads, accidentally makes friends with a princess in exile, and finds the Warlord of the North in his debt.)

    Prompt: touch

    Jaskier's hands are so gentle, and his words even more so.

    Summary

    In the wake of the war against Nilfgaard, countries like Redenia find themselves lacking in both fortune and name. When Earl de Lettenhove arranges a marriage for his son - the promiscuous cellist Jaskier - in the form of a notorious war veteran, Jaskier must acclimate to his new found courtship. Jaskier hasn’t the faintest of ideas as to why his mother might insist that he court the man he is already promised to marry, but he soon finds out that some courtships are not roses and strolls. Some courtships are horses and dandelions. Balancing a new composition, auditions for an infamous orchestra, and the abhorrent Valdo Marx will not nearly bring him to his wits end as much as verbally combating Lord Geralt of Rivia on the differences between weeds and wildflowers.

    Summary

    Caleb had caught Essek's attention immediately.
    And ever since, this strange little neglected attraction has been bothering him. He initiates a mutually beneficial arrangement upon realizing that Caleb's interests match his own surprisingly well. A purely physical, transactional deal.

    That would be fine, if it were not for the dangerous implications and weaknesses.

    Or for those many in-betweens when Essek is far too interested in what's beyond the boundaries of their agreement...
