    Summary

    “If you might want to keep it,” Luke tells him, bathed in shining emerald light, “then you better learn how to use it.”

    Din’s blood races with energy and want. He presses his thumb into the release on the Darksaber. The energy practically rushes out, the space empty one moment and full the next, overflowing with a black void of power. It hums as he moves it experimentally. He sees it shimmering, but the blade in the center never wavers, perfectly concentrated. Already, it feels almost like an extension of his arm.

    “I think you’re right,” Din says to Luke.

    Summary

    “Oh spirits,” Azula says, grinning widely. The Water Tribe is full of idiots. “You don’t want to marry Zuko, he’s useless. Also, he’s already engaged.”

    “He is?” Yue blinks at her.

    “Of course he is, he’s going to be the Fire Lord, he’s been engaged since he was twelve,” Azula says. A useless Fire Lord who she’s going to have to prop up, if not outright usurp, but Fire Lord all the same.

    The things she does for this family, she swears.

    Summary

    It makes a certain kind of poetic sense, having a musician--who specializes in taking you somewhere else with his songs while you’re stuck here, in the present--playing outside of a bookshop--which specializes in selling pages bound together by the hundreds that transport you to other places, other times. This young man, this Jaskier, he’s bright, he’s cheerful, he’ll draw the eye, you won’t be able to be within a hundred feet of him and not be curious, and if there are curious people standing right by a shop of curious books and other curiosities, well, the idea makes a certain kind of business sense, too.

    Geralt gives a nod, short, sharp. “Just don’t block the door. And don’t make me regret this.”

    Jaskier claps his hands together and squeals in delight. “No, no, I won’t, I promise. You won’t! You won’t regret this.”

     

    Or: Bookshop owner Geralt inexplicably, in what must be a fit of temporary madness induced by the early hour and not enough caffeine, allows musician Jaskier to play outside his shop. Somewhere along the way, he starts to fall in love.

    Summary

    (WHOLLY inspired by this utterly *perfect* headcanon and comic by @GangCane on twitter! https://twitter.com/gangcane/status/1282204351071567873?s=21)

    Between episodes 117 and 118, just before going to stop the Unknowing, Tim gives his coworkers just enough liquor to loosen them up. But after listening to Martin's tape, Jon may have loosened up a bit too much.

    Summary

    By the time they got to the safehouse, they had been on the road for nearly ten hours and the sight of the tiny, quaint old cottage in the middle of nowhere was a blessed relief.

    “Huh.”

    “Not what you were expecting?” Jon asked, unbuckling his seat belt.

    Martin shook his head.

    “When you said it was Daisy’s, I thought it would be something a bit more The Hills Have Eyes.”

    He stepped out of the car and reached up to the sky to stretch his back out. When he turned, Jon was staring at him from the other side of the car, nonplussed.

    “It’s a horror film.”

    “Ah,” Jon pushed his glasses up his nose, “Right…”
