    Summary

    "A second chance,“ Death said.

    Harry stopped in front of a bench and turned to look at the being. "A second chance at what?"

    "Life."

    Harry laughed bitterly. "Because that has worked out so great the first time?"

    Death tilted its head. "You've changed," it stated.

    "Life does that to you," Harry said and his mind felt clearer than ever, "Or should I say the last seven years. I never really left this place, have I? I lived a life feeling not quite dead and not alive either," he spat.

    "I know how you feel," Death said after a moment, grinning.

    "Oh, do you," Harry retorted and pierced Death with a look.

    The being's smirk widened as it leaned closer.
    "Bored."
     

    Years after the war, Harry Potter lives an apathetic life. When Death offers him a second chance he takes it.
    Accompanied by the being, Harry travels back to the summer before Sirius dies. Inside his younger body and the memories of an older self, Harry realizes that being connected to Death may have twisted his morals a little more than expected.
    Seeking to make up for the boredom of past years, Harry isn't above carving his own space between two sides to even out the playing field.

    Summary

    People are weird, out here in New Mexico. It’s not just them, and their particular brand of insane. You can’t throw a damn rock out here and not hit someone half-crazy. Must be something in the groundwater. It means no one ever looks twice at them, though. Them and their family. They get left alone. 

     

    “Maybe you should look for a pet for us,” Vas says now. “We could get a cat.”

     

    Everyone comes around again. Even wild horses.

    Summary

    A witcher's job is simple: take contracts, slay monsters, profit. Alec is a wandering young witcher, nearing his wits' end, when he happens on a contract almost too good to be true. The catch is that the job comes with a partner: the beautiful, troublesome Magnus, who seems too wise to Alec's secrets, but keeps many of his own.

    Together they hunt monsters—and fall in love.

    (A Shadowhunters/The Witcher fusion. No knowledge of either canon necessary.)

    Summary

    Arthur could see his father glaring down - face red and eyes narrowed as he looked at Merlin with clear distaste.

    "Once this over, sorcerer...I’ll burn you."

    "You’ve already tried that," Merlin’s voice answered and Arthur had to bite his fist to keep from making any noise. “You need to accept you can’t kill me… Hand me that blanket, please.”

    “I’m sure there must be some method… Beheading?”

    “No, we tried that.”

    “Hanging?”

    “I just sort of... Swung there, remember?”

    There was another pause.

    “I should have made you keep that dragon below the castle so I could feed you to it.”

    “Kilgharrah? He won’t eat me, but if you want to torture me than making me listen to his nonsense for an hour might do it.” Merlin said and there was a soft sigh from the other end of the room. “I’m glad you agreed to help me though. Usually I have to do the grunt work of saving Arthur myself.”

    “I can’t wait to kill you.” 

    Or

    Uther finds out about Merlin’s magic, but can’t seem to kill him. Merlin is just trying to protect Arthur. They become a begrudgingly effective duo. Arthur doesn't understand why they think he isn't noticing this.

    Summary

    Summary

    Five different flowers have passed through Jaskier's lips by the time they’re marching up a mountain to kill a dragon.

    Summary

    While Geralt was off fulfilling his mythic destiny, Jaskier has somehow managed to climb the slippery ladder of fame. But it's not all rock and roll: somewhere along the way he's finally succeeded in annoying someone to the point of actively trying to kill him. After a chance encounter at an inn, Ciri takes the liberty of signing Geralt up as temporary bodyguard. But, what with the lingering hurt feelings from their last fight and the issue of Jaskier's new trousers, this might prove a harder task than ever before...

    "It’s… well, it’s definitely Jaskier. It’s also a shirt that’s missing half of its buttons and a stomping roiling beat that Geralt has never heard before. Above all it’s some of the most obscenely raunchy lyrics that Geralt has ever heard, delivered in a tone so dripping in sex that Geralt feels a sudden urge to cover Ciri’s ears.

    “You meet a lot of interesting people,” Ciri says mildly as onstage, Jaskier does something complicated using mainly his hips. It should be embarrassing but Geralt finds himself watching intently and that’s when Jaskier finally looks up and sees him through the crowd. "

    Summary

    It’s been two weeks since Geralt shouted Jaskier away from him on that mountain and Jaskier has been handling it like a champ by forlornly wandering alone in the wilderness with his lute. When he (literally) stumbles across an injured white wolf he decides to take a chance and see if he can help it, appreciating the irony of the situation but not quite realizing why it is that the wolf’s golden eyes look exactly like his Witcher’s...

    Summary

    Jaskier, however, is a pampered child that likes to inflict those same ideals on whoever’s closest, which is always Geralt. He scowls and finishes his ale. “One room is fine.” He’s learned to pick his battles and right now his shoulder is still stinging from the injury he got earlier. One battle today was more than enough.

    *

    Geralt is too emotionally stunted to realize that Jaskier trying to pamper him is Jaskier telling him he loves him. Instead, he ends up worrying that Jaskier is going to end up missing all the fancy things like regular baths and beds and end up leaving him. Not that Geralt loves him or anything.

    Summary

    “Jaskier,” Geralt squeezes his hand tight between his own and Jaskier’s focus is pulled back by the commanding tone, “answer the question.”

    “Geralt,” Yennefer admonishes, “he might not even remember who you are.”

    Jaskier wants to laugh because of course he knows who Geralt is, but the look of despair on Geralt’s face is too much and the words tumble recklessly from his mouth.

    “Of course I know who he is! He’s the White Wolf – Geralt the mighty Witcher, savior of dangerous witches and bards who overstay their welcome.”

    Summary

    It had been seven months since Geralt had last seen Jaskier. Seven months since the mountain, seven months since he’d hurled those terrible words at the bard that he’d immediately regretted but been too fucking proud and angry to take back, damn him.

    He’d hoped Jaskier wouldn’t actually leave. But he did, of course; Geralt had looked away in grief-stricken fury and closed his eyes and when he’d turned back around again the bard was gone.

    So that had been that.

    Geralt didn’t expect to ever see Jaskier again.

     

    (When he does, Jaskier gets stabbed.)

    Summary

    He kneaded at Geralt’s back until it was soft and pliant, and Geralt was making these short little huffed breaths. But Geralt didn’t once ask him to stop, even when Jaskier had gone over the same section of scar tissue three times, so Jaskier took matters into his own hands and leaned back.

    “Right.” He said, bright and cheery. “That should be you all done. All nice and … squishy.”

    Geralt twisted his head on the pillow and glared at him.

    “What?” Jaskier asked.

    Geralt set his jaw and turned back around, mulish.

    Geralt isn't very good at asking for what he wants, or even understanding his wants for that matter. Luckily, Jaskier is hell-bent on finding out what pleases Geralt for himself. Even if he doesn't realise they both want the same thing.

    Summary

    Despite what his outward code of conduct would have you thinking, Jaskier knows when he is not wanted.

    He allows himself the exact amount of three days of wallowing in that small town before he packs his meager possessions and hits the road like nothing happened. In those three days he sings and dances for his food and drink, fucks the pretty barmaid and sleeps off the hangover before heading out in the morning of the fourth day. He travels alone for the first time in a while but it’s alright.

    Now, if only people would stop telling him that the Witcher asks about him - that'd be swell.

     

    And we have a lovely translation into Russian available here!
