    Summary

    On the day of her biggest triumph, Gideon Nav was running late.

    ***
    A story in which Gideon, a highly distinguished Cohort lieutenant, saves the day—and the girl—and then gets stuck in the lift of The Erebos with a man feeding her peanuts as if they have all the time in the world. They haven't, but if he doesn't mind, then why should she?

    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

    Soulbonds aren't supposed to be one-sided, but everyone knows witchers don't have soulbonds and Jaskier has learned to live with it, learned to be satisfied with being just Geralt's friend. But then the dragon hunt happens and they split up and the longer Jaskier is away from Geralt, the worse he starts to feel until it becomes unbearable. He decides to find someone to break the bond, but the only sorceress he knows who is strong enough to mess with destiny like that is Yennefer. Unfortunately for Jaskier, Yennefer appears to be wintering at Kaer Morhen with Geralt.

    Summary

    "Thrown out already?" Geralt asks, and sees the bard shaking his head from the corner of his eye.

    "Hardly! But a wise bard knows when to leave the audience wanting more."

    "I've never met one."

    "One what?"

    "A wise bard," he says, and glances over to see the bard's mouth flapping indignantly.

    "I -- am going to let that go, because you're right, where are my manners." He ducks in front of Geralt as they step onto solid ground, forcing him to halt, and gives him a bow, no less graceful for being quickly executed. "Jaskier, troubadour, poet -- and barker -- at your service."

    __________________________________

    Geralt assumes the bard will wander away of his own accord. Eventually.

    It takes a while to realize that's the last thing he wants.

    Summary

    It starts with Jaskier offering a helping hand when Geralt needs to let off some steam. The thing is, Jaskier likes taking care of Geralt—however he can—and Geralt lets him, so he just keeps doing it.

    And as long as they never talk about how he's in love with Geralt, they're both happy with the arrangement, right? Right.
