    Summary

    “I told you to stay with-” he begins. The rest of the words dry up in his throat when he finds that the curse hadn’t entirely missed, after all. Jaskier is leaning heavily against a tree, clutching his chest with the arm he’s not using to support himself.

    “Geralt?” Jaskier says. There’s a tremor to his voice that sets Geralt’s teeth on edge. Everything in him screams that it’s fundamentally wrong for Jaskier to sound like this. Jaskier shouldn’t be afraid. He shouldn’t be hurting.

    “He cursed you,” Geralt says, even as a part of him hopes that he’s wrong.

    “No, really,” Jaskier says. He slides down the tree a little as he speaks. “Here I thought this was normal.”

    ***
    Jaskier gets cursed: either "the one he loves" returns his feelings, and kisses him, or he dies painfully.
    Geralt just wants to know why Jaskier won't tell him who he's in love with.

    Summary

    Jaskier is not what anyone would call a traditional alpha, and certainly not the kind of alpha anyone would want for a mate. And he is quite surprised to unceremoniously discover that Geralt, his companion of many years, is in fact an omega. Geralt and his fellow witchers repress their heats until they arrive at Kaer Morhen for the winter. This year, since Jaskier’s rut is starting at just the right time, Geralt invites Jaskier to come along. Jaskier thinks he knows what to expect when partnering an omega in heat, but the situation at Kaer Morhen thoroughly wrecks his expectations.

    Summary

    Jaskier, in search of song inspiration, ventures onto the grounds of the castle that's supposed to hold a cursed prince. The curse is real, and so is the prince...but Jaskier may have gotten himself in a bit more trouble than anticipated.

    The cursed prince isn't nearly as restrained as he was supposed to be. And who puts a maze in front of their giant cursed castle, anyways?

    Summary

    “Ah,” Jaskier says. “I see why you might want me not to see you.”
    The creature stiffens at that, and it looks familiar to Jaskier, though he can’t place why. Nothing about this should be familiar, but he knows what this it, this freezing. It’s protection against the world, against being seen, being understood, and being hated (Jaskier doesn’t freeze, he gets loud and colorful and vibrant, but he knows that protection, the fear underneath it).
    //
    Jaskier stumbles into a castle in the middle of a storm. It's not the first time. It is the first time the castle in question's been occupied by a monster, though. And it's the first time he's been forced to stay. Certainly the first time he's been asked to break a curse. That would be a lot easier if his host would tell him what, exactly he has to do. Or why it seems like he recognizes Jaskier.
