After what'd happened the first time Jaskier had dragged Geralt to some kind of royal ball as his bodyguard, Geralt really should’ve known better than to agree to do it a second time.

“Ah!” says the innkeeper, as the rowdy crowd finishes singing a song about Geralt’s heroics and segues seamlessly into a saccharine love ballad about the fairytale romance between the daughter of a baron and a lowly bard. “This song, it’s by the very same bard who sang those songs about you, Master Witcher! So in love, he is, with his beautiful lady.”
“Oh, it’s so romantic,” sighs the barmaid dreamily. “That handsome bard, marrying a noble lady!”
Geralt squints up at them doubtfully. “This…bard,” he says. “Dark hair, blue eyes, never shuts up?”
“Aye,” the innkeeper says. “That’s the one.”

“Jaskier,” Geralt said in conversational tones.
“Yes, Geralt?” Jaskier’s voice was a half-octave higher than normal.
“Why is it,” Geralt said, “that whenever something like this happens, you’re always involved somehow?”

Geralt’s first thought is that whoever had come up with all those tales about witchers had done a really bad job of it. The man standing in front of Geralt, with his pretty face and sweet, boyish smile, is about as far as humanly possible from the picture Geralt’d had in his mind of a typical witcher.
“I’m Jaskier,” the witcher says, then stares hopefully at Geralt.
Jaskier beams. “Well, it’s lovely to meet you, Geralt.” The witcher peers at him inquisitively. “You’re not very talkative, for a bard.”
Geralt grunts. “You’re pretty damned talkative, for a witcher.”
[or: a canon AU in which Jaskier is a witcher and Geralt is a bard.]

Jaskier is infuriating for many reasons. Geralt has a list.
