    Summary

    Geralt finds Dandelion's Café by accident. The décor is ridiculous, the barista is odd, and the music is ridiculously odd. The only reason he comes back at all is because the coffee is so good.

    That, and his writer's block.

    Summary

    “Your new case.”
    Geralt opened up the folder eagerly. The information was sparse, the coroners report still missing. “A teenage girl was found under St.Gregory’s Bridge, washed ashore. No ID, no witnesses, no crime scene. One shot to the heart, though. The ME said he has a lead. He wants to talk to you about that. In person.”
    Yens evil smirk was back when Geralt groaned in despair.
    “Don’t play pretend with me, you big grumpy closeted bi-disaster. I noticed your tongue hanging out and your tail waggling every time we were down in pathology.”
    “Mh.” So the guy was cute. Still an irritating little pest, though.

    Summary

    "Jaskier, how drunk are you?" he asks, and Jaskier breathes a laugh into Geralt's shoulder.

    "I am excellently drunk, Geralt, I've done a very good job of it. I am as drunk as a Skelligen skunk."

    "There are no skunks on Skellige."

    "I am as drunk as a Skelligen monk, then."

    Which is fairly drunk, all things considered; Skelligens don't fuck around about that sort of thing.


    Geralt has been foolish about many things in his long life, and every time to his detriment; he'll not make the mistake of deluding himself that someone like Jaskier, with all the world open to him and everything to offer in return, would ever really choose Geralt's company in that way.

    (Geralt may not be a reliable narrator of his own life.)

    Summary

    He gives her a choice: stay and become the monster Stregobor accuses her of being or leave and give up on her revenge.

    In the end, it’s not a difficult choice at all. She isn’t stupid enough to believe herself capable of besting a Witcher (and it’s painfully clear that he will feel obligated to stop her). Above all else, Renfri has only ever wanted to live.

    Summary

    None of the detectives were quite sure how to handle their new captain. He was grumpy, closed-off, and altogether seemed like he'd be a nightmare to work with. Not to mention, they knew practically nothing about the man, and he wasn't exactly forthcoming with any information concerning himself. Well, they weren't detectives for nothing, and if he wouldn't tell them, they would find out.
