    Summary

    A moment passes. Then another. Derek allows his mind to wander and his senses to settle, hoping sleep will find him. He focuses on the scent of Stiles’ hair, the rhythm of his breathing, the rise and fall of his chest, the warmth of—

    “Did you know that some moths don’t have mouths?” Stiles says, voice sounding loud in the stillness of the room. When Derek doesn’t say anything in response, he clears his throat and continues, “The Luna moth has no mouth. Doesn’t eat a thing.”

    Derek ducks his head, presses his forehead against the nape of Stiles neck with a sigh, and cracks one eye open. He can’t complain. Really, he can’t. He knew what this was when they started dating. He went in with his eyes wide open. And even on the rare occasions he does complain, nobody believes he’s serious anyway. Not any more.

    Summary

    In this world, Geralt never met Jaskier until well after he was responsible for Ciri. Without the humanizing influence of the human, he is not the man he could be. On the path Geralt enters a Gwent tournament and finds himself with the prize of a cursed bard, whom he quite literally cannot get away from. He is determined to break the curse and rid himself of the annoyance, and continue on his loner and stoic ways.

    Jaskier and fate of course have very different plans.

    Summary

    “Well, that’s a separate issue entirely, isn’t it?” Jaskier says, clearly enthused by being taken on. “I’m opposed to marriage on principle. Would you like to know why?”

    “No,” says Geralt.

    “I’ll tell you why,” says Jaskier.

    Summary

    "I praise you all the time," Jaskier said, tagging after Geralt as he led Roach along the rocky trail. "In song."

    "Those are lies," Geralt grunted.

    “Only if you take them literally.” Jaskier said, exasperated.

    Summary

    “So do you have a name?”

    “Yeah.” The man who had saved his life less than an hour ago – the white-haired, absurdly buff, weirdly sexy man Jaskier might have called taciturn if he was feeling charitable and surly if he was feeling less so – dug into his second burger.

    Jaskier waited. “Are… you going to tell me what it is?”

    The man paused mid-bite, and looked at him reproachfully as if to say how dare you. How dare you interrupt me. Can’t you see I’m enjoying my cheeseburger. Can’t you see this cheeseburger is the most important thing in my life right at the moment. He swallowed, and said, “Geralt.”

    It turns out almost getting eaten by a werewolf can make your whole life go careening off in a new, terrifying, wondrous, artistically flourishing direction. Who knew?
