  1. Summary

    It’s a tradition the three of them hold. Whenever one of them finds a book of the right kind, he brings it back to Kaer Morhen to share with the others. They keep the books on a shelf in the library that they inexpertly installed themselves.

    Eskel drags a chair up to form their little semicircle in front of the library fire. Lambert opens the first bottle of krupnikas.

    ‘Well?’ Lambert says. ‘Either of you find a good one this year?’

    ‘Feast your eyes, lads,’ says Eskel with relish, ‘on this.’

    He waves an octavo at them.

    ‘Picked it up in Redania,’ he says. ‘Meant to be very spicy.’

    He waggles his eyebrows, and Geralt grins.

    Jaskier is a romance novelist, and Geralt finds out.

  2. Summary

    Okay. I was going to write a tumblr post about this that goes as follows:

    I know what we have in Netflix canon is Geralt going ‘we’re not friends’ at Jaskier several times

    But since we see like 0.1% of their friendship, and we only seem to drop in on their relationship in the midst of Geralt having a succession of Terrible Days, it’s INFINITELY FUNNIER to me if Geralt, in fact, tells Jaskier they’re friends just. Like. Just constantly. Except for when he’s in a bad mood. So it’s pretty hard for Jaskier to take it to heart when Geralt’s like We’re not friends. We’ve never been friends. I don’t even know why you’re here, or wearing a pendant that’s shaped like half of a heart and which reads “BE FRI” that I definitely didn’t give you. >:(

    Then I wanted to write a fic about it.

    And once I had finished the first one, I wasn’t quite done with the idea, so wrote a companion fic from Geralt’s perspective.

    Summary

    When Derek leaves Beacon Hills for the second time in as many years, Stiles kind of gets it. Derek’s been through far more shit than anyone Stiles knows -- he figures Derek will take some time to lick his wounds, screw his head back on straight, and be back by the time the next supernatural threat descends on them. Because Derek always comes back. It’s what he does. So when he sees the “For Sale” sign on the loft nearly two months later without a single word from Derek, Stiles is pissed.

    Summary

    Right from the beginning there had been something about Stiles— a brightness, a tenacity, an otherness. It had driven Derek mad that first couple years, the way Stiles was always there, proactively inserting himself into situations, pushing himself, pushing Derek, protecting the pack, making himself indispensable. 

    After all, what gave him the fucking right?

    It wasn’t just that, though. As a kid, Derek had read about the intense heat and pressure needed to create diamonds, and there was something about Stiles which always reminded him of that. Somehow Stiles had a knack of taking his obvious fear and compacting it, pushing it down and down, compressing it, until it became something more. Something useful. Something beautiful. 

    As someone whose only experience with the alchemy of fear was to transmute it into blind, bitter rage, Derek often envied Stiles that. He recognized it for what it was, though— a kind of magic in its own right.

    The one where they have to pretend to be soulmates for reasons. It all works out in the end, I promise.

    Summary

    “Dumbass,” Derek mutters. The timbre of his voice absolutely should not send a jolt straight to Stiles’ dick, but his dick is fucked, metaphorically speaking.

    Summary

    There are Faeries in the Wood.

    That's what everyone said, at least, not that there was any solid proof. Jaskier had tried, more than once, to find some. Just a hint somewhere, of a real story, of real magic. But all anyone seemed to have was stories.

    Jaskier was determined to find proof. He wasn't expecting to find a witcher in the process.

    --

    Jaskier goes into a magical forest and comes out with a witcher.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is such a wonderful take on the faery deal type of story and I really love it. Feat. amateur folklorist Jaskier <3
