    Summary

    His face evoked his every emotion like an oil portrait. He was always ready to talk out loud, make himself be heard and he still was, his voice was steady, inspiring. His choice of words was incomparable, hands down. He had a sensibility for narration ever since he’d just started middle school, when he was ten years old and set to telling her all about his day. His emotion was unlike anything she could think of. His curiosity was so strong it could be the end of him, but he survived, with a dream so big it made his eyes a glistening brown you couldn’t quite compare, ones she relished on thinking were an exact mimic of her own.

    But there was something in the look in his eyes, something heavy leaning on every word he spit back at her whenever they had an argument. There was something there when - for a split second - his face broke, right before his frown came back to place. He was holding something back, a cry so shrill she could see right through him and it pained her to the core.

    Karen can feel her son out of her reach, like he's pulling away from her. But she once promised herself she'd protect her children with her life, and she's never been one to break a promise.

    Summary

    “Is it some kind of prank, do you think?” Jaskier asks, squinting at the noticeboard.

    It’s littered with contracts, each more peculiar than the last. Missing people, haunted houses, someone convinced his sister is possessed because she’s acting strangely. The last is vague, giving no indication of what “strangely” even means. It would be weird for a sizable city like Novigrad, but it’s completely nonsensical in a village as small as Hillcrest, which is barely large enough to support an inn. The notices are all quite new, so normally Geralt would be tempted to write it off as someone being a menace. But the writing is different, the paper is different, all of it is different enough that it’s probably not one person.

     

    As it turns out, there is no prank, leaving Geralt to try to fix things before whatever is wrong with Hillcrest consumes them all.

    Summary

    Daniel wakes up hungover, sweaty, and with an annoyingly persistent crick in his neck.

    The pain radiating down to his back can easily be attributed to the fact that he fell asleep on the couch again, but it takes him a few moments of disoriented blinking and wriggling to figure out why he’s feeling like he’s about to melt right out of the dress shirt he apparently never got around to taking off last night. The heavy arm draped across his waist is his first clue, quickly followed by the hot, humid breaths being steadily puffed against his neck.

    Right.

    Johnny.

    [5 times Daniel thinks people’s assumptions about his and Johnny’s relationship are going to make Johnny freak out, plus the 1 time he realizes why he never had anything to worry about.]

    Summary

    "Have you had any experiences recently that have caused you stress or anxiety?”

    Yennefer snorts.

    “Well, I went from living in a 3000 square foot penthouse flat in Cintra to a hotel room in the middle of nowhere so—”

    Geralts eyes widen. “That sounds like it would do it.”

    Julian Pankratz, one of the Continent's most famous playboys, always invited to the hottest parties, always seen with the best of the best, is enjoying his lavish life in his huge Cintran apartment when he suddenly gets cut off by his parents and is sent to live in the middle of nowhere.

    It might turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to him.

    (aka the incredibly indulgent schitts creek au that I wrote)
