    Summary

    Or, A Love Story in Three Beats

    “These records belong to my father. Waverly gave me his address, some nice house in the suburbs. Asked me if I wanted it for myself,” Gaby admitted after New York.

    “I was youngest KGB agent ever qualified. My comrades...were not pleasant about it,” Illya confessed as he stroked his scar in Amsterdam.

    “I was going to keep the watch,” Napoleon let slip while in Istanbul.

    Two years of missions, from trafficking rings to spy hunters, attempted kidnappings, underground boxing matches, and sanctioned bank robberies. The three of them have found sharing secrets helps.

    The traveling and the teamwork are nice, but the steadily building sexual tension none of them know how to acknowledge keeps causing a spike in their plans while working for a company that has barely gotten its feet under it. The best they can do is scramble.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Formative to a lot of my mental rewriting of how the trilogy should have gone

    Summary

    OK this series has been going on for 2 years now and I should summarize it better.
    The first part is several decades of, largely, Geralt and Jaskier's interactions, as they both fumble together toward some kind of meaningful understanding. That section largely concludes with a Jaskier/Geralt/Yennefer endgame.

    Then there's a time jump, and the series picks up after the events of the Witcher 3 games. I follow Lambert as he copes with grief, and Keira as she learns new things about herself, and the lives they make.

    I decided to tell the story of how Ciri became Empress after W3, which intersects with Keira and Lambert's adventures; I read the books somewhere in this and got invested in some of the themes they brought up. And entangled with this, I got interested in the politics of the North, especially the Upper Aedirn Free State and the threads laid down in the Witcher 2 game that didn't exactly get resolved in Witcher 3, and so I have several stories dealing with that thread, which will intersect with the other stories in the same timeline.

    See notes for chronological dates and what order the stories really ought to go in!

    Summary

    Continues Lady Knight to the end of the Scanran War. K/D eventually. A long novel of action and manners, featuring immortals, gods, the timeway, a serious battle, some unlikely topography, and a lot of improbable architecture. Oh, and some haiku.

    Metasummary: Mary Sue? Mary Sue? I'll give you Mary Sue and make you marry her with bells on, so help me an awful lot of gods ...

    So good I often forget it isn't canon
