    Summary

    Jaskier tilts his head, neck crunching at the strange angle, and kisses the King’s stone frown.

    The statue—who is now not so much a statue as a man—gasps into his mouth.

    Summary

    “Oh, you’re a feisty thing, aren’t you?” She stroked one fingertip across Jaskier’s cheek, then angled it so he felt the sharp bite of her nail. “A tempest in a teacup. Lightning in a bottle. You take me back to my Aretuza days, little bard.”

    “Don’t touch him,” Geralt growled, low and deadly.

    “I don’t think you’re in a position to threaten, witcher.”

     ~*~

    During a fight with a mad sorceress Jaskier becomes cursed, and now storms follow his vivid emotions. He'll have to keep his feelings for Geralt under control while they wander in search of a cure. Each rumble of thunder threatens his long kept secret, and brings him one step closer to losing all he holds dear in life.

    Summary

    Jaskier was part fae. A quarter to be precise.

    There was an old superstition among humans that names held power, but for fae it was so much more than that. Names meant control. If you knew a fae’s name, their true name, they would be completely at your will. If someone knew your true name you were nothing more than their servant. A slave. All it took was a single command.

    When war breaks out between neighboring kingdoms, Jaskier's father uses his true name and commands him to marry a witcher as part of a peace treaty. Neither Jaskier or Geralt are particularly happy with the arrangement. But as Jaskier gets to know him better he realizes that the witcher might just be able to give him the thing he's always craved. Freedom.

    Summary

    In a forest, a child is running. That child is Princess Cirilla Fiona Elen Riannon. She is running, but not out of fear anymore. She has seen someone she knows, someone she trusts. The man opens his arms and catches her. Their embrace lasts forever, yet it still isn’t long enough. The man crouches, his eyes scanning the little princess for any proof of pain, any wound, but when he finds nothing he turns back his blue gaze to her own.

    --

    Ciri doesn't find Geralt at the end, she finds Jaskier. She has known him all her life, and she trusts him. He decides to bring her to Kaer Morhen so that she will find Geralt. He dreads the moment it will happen.
