  3. Summary

    (The Bad Decisions Series Backstory Fics series contains the stories that set up the universe this series exists in, but you should be able to get through Bad Decisions without ever actually reading them.)

    There's plenty of times in life where a decision has to be made, big or small; and, unfortunately, life means that you get to be around to see exactly what your decisions cause.

    Throw in marriages, children (adopted and otherwise), conspiracy theorists, politics, magic, aliens, and about 1,500 years- and the consequences can really pile up.

    Summary

    This is the story of how Jaskier helps to save the world.

    Jaskier is twenty when a rift opens and an army of Fae pour through it. Bloodthirsty and mindless, they sweep across the Continent, devastating human settlements and pushing them into smaller and smaller communities. Jaskier finds himself trapped in Lettenhove, having to deal with his father's gradual decline into madness and protecting his family and his village from the threats outside their walls. He meets a Faerie, trapped in a Faerie Ring; the rest, as they say, is history.

    Summary

    Jaskier remembers his birth. Or rather he remembers his first breaths in this world.
    A woman, unrelated to him by blood but his mother all the same, pulls him wailing out of the ground. He feels her joy and the stench of old magic in the air, then…
    … the knowledge is gone.

    Contrary to popular belief, thank you Lambert, Geralt was not stupid. As soon as he’d walked into the Tavern in Posada, he’d known something was different about the bard.

    After an encounter with a Djinn, Yennefer finds herself with a Fae indebted to her. They keep running into each other.

    Summary

    Traders are a gossiping sort. If there was a scandal within the noble houses of Posada, you’d hear about it in Cretegor by the end of the week. So, the quick spread of a rumor about a little village in the Kestrel Mountain range was not at all surprising. What was surprising was the story that the traders wove. They said that Luibhtorrach, a sad, ghost of a farming town, had miraculously become a hub for trade, as if overnight. Their lands unbelievably fertile and brimming with crop. Even stranger, each and every one of Luibhtorrach’s people professed that their good fortune was the work of a mysterious beast they’d claimed as their personal deity. Most recent news foretold of their plans to throw a midsummer festival celebrating this newfound god. In preparation, silken blue banners were erected in every corner of the town, each bearing the symbol of their new patron: A delicate dandelion wrapping around a golden sun.
    - Or -
    Jaskier accidentally becomes the god of a village he stumbled upon after Geralt’s post-dragon hunt meltdown. Maybe it had something to do with his new look.
