    Summary

    Geralt has definitely made plenty of enemies over the many years of his existence as a Witcher. The crudest of labels - mutant, monster, butcher - have rolled of the tongues of nearly all humans that saw him. There was but one person - a sweet, beautiful bard - who never viewed him as such atrocities. Geralt never understood why Jaskier cared so much for him.

    The only thing he understood less than that was how unreasonably in love he was with Jaskier.

    But the last time the Witcher allowed himself to be vulnerable, it ended in disaster the day he was dubbed the "Butcher of Blaviken". Geralt thought it best to deny his feelings after that - or, at the very least, to hide them.

    It seemed unthinkable that anyone would ever target Jaskier in order to get to Geralt, nor to take any brutal measures to silence him...

    ...But what if the unthinkable happened?

    How would Jaskier deal with losing what he built his life around - his voice? Would Geralt remain steadfast at Jaskier's side and do everything he could to undo the damage, or would guilt end up destroying him? Can a lovestruck Witcher and silent bard - their very existences being oxymoronic - ever recognize their feelings for each other?

    Summary

    All magic has a price – this is something as true of Signs as any other spell. Following an exhausting fight, racist villagers capture the injured Witcher and bard, Geralt locked in irons while Jaskier is treated by a mage. Determined to release the human of the mutant’s thrall by any means necessary, the villagers turn to extreme measures. Jaskier must fight through chaotic amnesia and newly learned fears to save someone he doesn’t remember.

    Or: Geralt gets his facial scars, adds a few more elsewhere to his collection, and tries to stay alive long enough for Jaskier to remember that they aren’t friends, but brothers.

    Summary

    Geralt and Yennefer have a perfectly fine relationship where they save all their polite energy for the interactions they have in front of their nearly grown daughter. But when both of them separately begin to casually date a sweet, thoughtful musician, perhaps that same force that softened them can also bring them together again. Trouble is, Jaskier has played this game before. Just once he wants to be kept. He wants to be in the relationship with them. For as long as they'll let him.

    Summary

    When amber met blue, the world stopped. Endless untamed ocean surrounded the sun and drowned it with the force of a tide.
    When blue met amber, something changed. The light was so strong and blinding it illuminated the very darkest parts of the depth.

    (or a story where Geralt is a happy, supposedly straight man about to get married and his world is about to turn upside down when he meets a young stripper with captivating gaze and a dark past)

    Summary

    In books and songs, there are always clues that warn the audience that a great tragedy is about to occur. A spot of blood against the clean floor. A broken window, perhaps, or a darkened home. Their hearts would race with anticipation only to gasps as the true horror unfolded.

    For Jaskier, the tragedy looked like this:

    Two bodies moving awkwardly off the tumbled bedspread.

    Dark hair tumbling over shoulders bared by a shirt that was far too large for a woman’s body.

    Familiar scars left behind by a life of war joined now by a deep bruise along one collarbone in the shape of a mouth.

    Yellow eyes meeting his with agony marring their depths—too much emotion to belong to the man responsible for the way Jaskier’s chest seemed collapse around the shards of his broken heart.

    Summary

    Of course this would happen. Destiny just couldn’t let him die in peace. Because why would it!?

    Jaskier had felt a pit form in his stomach as soon as he’d seen that messy white hair and those blasted golden eyes. He’d had a bad enough day already and it was about to get way worse.

    [so this will be my first fic posted on ao3 - hope it’s alright considering I haven’t edited much at all]

    Summary

    Spending the winter with Geralt on Corvo Bianco, Jaskier receives an invitation to teach a semester at Oxenfurt. That’s awesome.

    It’s signed by none other than Valdo Marx. That’s less awesome.

    If not to say complete fucking bullshit.

    Turns out he was running from a very messy breakup when he met Geralt in Posada and it’s now catching up with him, thirty years later.

    /

    “Jaskier, could you open the window?” Geralt asks while staring at Valdo like he’s a particularly disgusting kikimora and he’s going to rid the world of it any minute now.

    (That’s saying something, even a comparatively pretty kikimora is ugly as sin.)

    Jaskier has no idea where this is going, but he can’t wait to find out.

    Summary

    Geraskier. Modern!AU sort of.

    Jaskier and Geralt are not officially a couple and they are not together yet but they are living and traveling together.
    One day, they have a horrible fight and Geralt said some mean things to Jaskier, breaking his heart like he never did before.

    Jaskier sends a message to Yennefer (who is friend with both of them) and asks to stay with her for a few days.
    He just can't be with Geralt anymore.
    But that's only the beginning of their most important journey (and their love story).

    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.

    Summary

    Jaskier can perfectly comprehend the meaning of home. He’s a poet, a master lyricist. He can take as simple an object as a leaf or a rock and give meaning to it, draw parallels and symbolisms of romance, of heartache and longing, and it would reduce even the most detached person in the room to tears. He’s an accomplished storyteller, after all. It’s what he does.

    But in all his years of living, whether as a noble or as a traveling bard, Jaskier never fully grasped what it feels like to be at home. Or what it’s like to have a home. Theoretically, he knows the word itself has several meanings. He knows that. But just because he knows it doesn’t mean he’s experienced it.

    Not until he met one Geralt of Rivia.

    Summary

    The witcher hums again. His hair is white as moonlight, Jaskier reflects. It’s quite pretty, actually. “I’d been told you’re a monster, you know. But in my experience, monsters don’t usually praise goddesses for not maiming their enemies.”

    Jaskier swallows. “Is that what we are? Enemies?”

    There’s another long pause. And then, “No. No, I don’t think we are.”

    Jaskier can’t help it. He starts curling in on himself. “You’re a witcher though, aren’t you? You’re supposed to kill monsters.”

    “And are you a monster?” comes the retort.

    And to that, Jaskier can only answer honestly. “I don’t know.”

    Summary

    Summary

    Cats have always sensed that Geralt is... different. He can't get within five feet without them hissing and scrambling to get away, which is why- promise you won't laugh- Geralt of Rivia, the great White Wolf, has never pet a cat before. And neither have his fellow Witchers for that matter. What happens when Geralt finds a stray kitten in some backwater town in the middle of Velen, ribs showing and half frozen to death? And what happens when he decides to take the poor thing back to Kaer Morhen with him?

    or

    Jaskier is cursed to be a cat. The Wolf Witchers find him and instantly fall in love, giving him cuddles and kisses. Things sure get awkward when they find out that the kitten they've adopted is actually the bard who's been singing about them for more than twenty years.
