    Summary

    It had been a hard winter, harder than most. Jaskier had seemed listless and every full moon seemed to have him wandering the halls with a restless kind of energy. Geralt did his best to keep him as present as possible but something else called to him that Geralt just could not compete with. 

    “You have to go back soon, don’t you?” Geralt asked softly, one night as they laid in bed. Jaskier had been losing sleep and it wasn’t likely for Geralt to wake him. 

    Jaskier turned over, pressing his face into Geralt’s shoulder, sighing. “I don’t want to, but I can feel the sea calling to me. I’ve been gone too long I think and I can’t seem to escape it, even here.” He looked up at Geralt then, his eyes wide and full of an ache Geralt wished never existed. 

    “Come with me? See me off?” Jaskier asked softly. He had pulled back slightly as if waiting for a rejection.

    Summary

    He hears Geralt leave without a word, the door closing gently behind him. Jaskier wraps his hand around the smooth wood of the nearest bed post and rests his forehead against it. He doesn’t know why he agreed to come here, or why Geralt had asked in the first place.

    ~*~

    Jaskier's first winter at Kaer Morhen gets off to a rocky start in more ways than one. Healing from an injury, he is tasked with fixing the neglected library, which is a good distraction from his hidden longing for Geralt. Add some major misunderstandings, some hard choices, a healthy dose of pining all around, and a song, and you have a winter's tale of love in all its forms.

    Summary

    After the turmoil of war robbed him of his birthright, Jaskier endures life as a simple Bard in the court of Kerack, under the protection of his cruel, ambitious cousin. Until the night that Jaskier catches the attention of the Geralt of Rivia, Lord of the Clan of the Wolf, and is terrified to be gifted to the barbarian mercenary as a bed-warmer.

    However, Jaskier soon learns that the White Wolf is not the man his dark reputation makes him out to be. He might, in fact, be Jaskier's only hope of escaping his harsh circumstances. If only Jaskier can convince Geralt to allow him to remain at his side ... if only Jaskier can avoid losing his own heart in the process ...

    Summary

    Jaskier’s kingdom is conquered by the merciless warlord known as the White Wolf. The fearsome wolf decides to take Jaskier as a prize to marry him. Jaskier has been abused all his life and supposes going with the wolf will make very little difference.

    Note about rape/non-con: While no rape is explicitly described, there is an attempted rape and referenced/heavily implied rape and sexual abuse. This fic deals with the aftermath of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse and therefore can be quite triggering to some. Please be aware before choosing to read. ❤️

    Summary

    This fic is written for tumblr artist @spielzeugkaiser‘s beautiful art. (link in notes)

    The prompt:

    “I keep thinking about a post mountain scenario with Geralt and Ciri on the run from Nilfgaard, battered and tired and somehow ending up on the court of Lettenhove, with a not unacquainted Viscount, who acts like they've never met before. (I want political subterfuge, I want Geralt placing his trust in a man whose heart he shattered, who's acting cold and detached but is so, so good inside, I'M-)”
