    Summary

    When Jaskier saves a farmer from plunging to his death, the grateful man offers him the Law of Surprise as a reward. Jaskier hopes for a newborn kitten or maybe a handful of eggs out of the deal, but they arrive at the man’s farm to learn that his wife has brought an injured witcher home to heal…and Jaskier now has a new husband. If only said extremely good looking husband weren’t Geralt of Rivia, the same witcher who left Jaskier in the woods outside Posada a decade before.

    Geralt has already walked away from destiny once in Cintra and he intends to do it again. But every time he leaves Jaskier behind, something goes wrong. It might be destiny, it might be bad luck. Either way, he intends to find a way out of it. If only the bard weren't starting to grow on him.

    Summary

    "This is a very simple experiment, bard." Cold blue eyes met Jaskier's. "The Witcher over there? He's dying. There's only one thing that can save him at this point."

    Jaskier glanced towards Geralt apprehensively; his head lolled back. If he was conscious, he gave no sign of it.

    "I want you to bond him."

    Jaskier jerked, staring at the man in horror. "No."

    Soul-bonding was intimate, a moment reserved in private between two people who had decided to share every joy and every sorrow. They would feel each other's pain, know if the other was on the brink of death. It was a bond that could only be forged with good intention, with the purest motive. There was no way to undo it. Bonding Geralt would mean surrendering half his soul to the Witcher, to experiencing every pain, and every woe. But worse than that. Witchers didn't have souls. Jaskier would be throwing away the greatest connection he could ever experience, for a man who would never be able to return it. Jaskier was romantic enough to admit that he wanted a romance of the ages, and a bond of certainty. 

    Not this.

    "Let me make this easier for you: bond him, or I'll kill you."

    Summary

    Single dad Geralt lives a fairly drama-free life; he co-parents his daughter Ciri with his high-powered ex, works as a forest ranger with his best friends since childhood, and usually manages to have a decent meal on the table every evening. All of that's about to change when he finally comes face-to-face with Ciri's favorite pop-star though, because Jaskier's never met a situation he couldn't add a little bit of drama to!

    Summary

    It was in the silence his ghosts were always their loudest, their most dangerous; in stillness their most unavoidable.

    So Jaskier the bard sang his songs and filled the spaces. He hummed shanties long into the night, his fingers chasing up and down the strings of his lute like he had once chased his brothers and sisters up and down the rigging of their ships.

    Now he'd finally found a mentor who could teach him the final lessons he needed to become a full Witcher. So what if he seems strangely overprotective? They are the last of their schools, and Geralt allows Jaskier to walk his Path alongside him. Wolf and Crane, alone together.

    Too bad Geralt didn't realize what this strange human-seeming bard was actually asking of him.
