    Summary

    Geralt falls first.
    He doesn’t know how, but he does. It’s undeniable in the way his chest aches when Jaskier laughs, the way his throat constricts when Jaskier touches him, the way his dreams show him what he tries so desperately to ignore.
    He’s never been in love before. He doesn’t know what it’s like. It hurts more than he thought it would, but he finds it’s the kind of pain he’s learned how to savor.
    Geralt falls first.
    Although, to say he falls first implies that Jaskier would fall for him back. Which, of course, is a mere fantasy with no holding in the real world. This may be Geralt’s first time in love, but he’s not stupid. He’s very realistic about his chances and where he and the bard stand. No matter how fast his sluggish heart tries to beat, he always shoves it down, always keeps it hidden.
    So Geralt falls. He falls before he’s even realized just how much his companion means to him. He falls with no idea how to stop it, how to continue going about his life without this weight, this tether, wrapped around the lump of tissue in his chest, the rope sharp and suffocating.
    Geralt falls, and he makes the sensation of free-falling his home.

    Summary

    So,” Jaskier begins, as casually as he can, “you are telling me, that in theory, if I were to be in love with someone — anyone — that person could well be in terrible danger?” 

    ---

    Of all terrible and ridiculous things that have threatened Geralt’s safety, Jaskier’d never thought that loving him might be what will get him killed.

    Summary

    Nothing had changed. There were no flickering lights, no rush of wind, nothing to indicate that a malevolent force had arrived. But the way Geralt was holding his head was suddenly a little off, his expression when he looked up at Jaskier just a bit too flat. Something wasn’t right.

    Or: Geralt gets possessed during a hunt.

    Summary

    Geralt starts noticing.

    Sometimes he stares. Sometimes he tugs his cloak about him, breath making ghosts in the chilly night air, and lets himself see. Jaskier’s stark profile against the backdrop of the flames. The play of light and shadow over his face, cutting across his neck in a sharp line, dripping soft and golden into the crinkles of his coat.

     

    Or: Things that changed since Geralt met Jaskier. Or Jaskier found Geralt. Or- you know.

    Summary

    Jaskier’s been pretending to be human for so long now that he hardly remembers what it feels like to be a sorcerer. He doesn’t want to remember what it feels like to be a sorcerer. But people still murmur his name with reverence in certain dim halls; Dandelion, Dandelion, destroyer of worlds.
