    Summary

    Jaskier had quickly abandoned the Path once he was out in the world. He’d chosen a name, and pursued what he truly wanted in life - and it was music, not fighting monsters, because of course it was - and he’d only deigned to act as a witcher until he gathered the not insignificant amount of coin needed to buy himself not only a glamour but the discretion of its creator, which had cost almost as much as the damn thing itself.

    If anyone who’d ever known him could see him now, he doubted they’d be too surprised.

     

    Jaskier is a witcher by nature, a bard by choice, and a general nuisance by sheer force of personality.

    Summary

    It was in the silence his ghosts were always their loudest, their most dangerous; in stillness their most unavoidable.

    So Jaskier the bard sang his songs and filled the spaces. He hummed shanties long into the night, his fingers chasing up and down the strings of his lute like he had once chased his brothers and sisters up and down the rigging of their ships.

    Now he'd finally found a mentor who could teach him the final lessons he needed to become a full Witcher. So what if he seems strangely overprotective? They are the last of their schools, and Geralt allows Jaskier to walk his Path alongside him. Wolf and Crane, alone together.

    Too bad Geralt didn't realize what this strange human-seeming bard was actually asking of him.

    Summary

    Years ago, Geralt meets a little boy befriending a monster.

    Years later, Geralt meets a bard. There's something familiar in the way he tries to keep Geralt from killing monsters.

    "Real monsters are human", he'd always say.

    Summary

    When King Radovid shuts his doors to the outside world as the Red Death, a horrific disease, rampages the land, he "invites" Geralt of Rivia to join him within the walls. While locked inside Radovid's ball, Geralt meets an alluring young noble who just might not be what he seems.

    A/N: This is inspired by my favorite Poe short story and "Farewell Wanderlust" by The Amazing Devil! You don't need to know anything about the original work, but I do encourage you to read it because it's fantastic. This version definitely has more homoerotic dancing, though, and a very different ending. Enjoy!

    ————

    "What about you, darling? Where is your pretty soul going to spend eternity?"
    "Witchers don't have souls," Geralt growled. Jaskier didn't flinch.
    "I beg to differ, dear."
    “And what would you know about souls?”
    Jaskier leaned in, and though Geralt would never admit it, the man’s amused smirk unnerved him. “Certainly more than one would expect at first glance. Care to know more?”

    Summary

    When Geralt stopped in Lettenhove he only intended to stay for a night at most. He did not expect to get hired for a contract nor to meet an alluring young man during his stay. And despite finding happiness in spending time with Jaskier it's the contract looming over his head that is causing him trouble as he tries to unravel the dirty secrets hidden in this place.

    Summary

    “‘Witchers are sterile’ I know.” He couldn’t see them, but he could feel Jaskier throwing frustrated hands behind him. “And that’s apparently a lie. Just like ‘Witchers don’t have emotions’.”
    “Yeah, okay, that one is bullshit. Still, Witchers are actually sterile, or we’d have lots of little Geralts running around, causing havoc and grunting.” 
    Jaskier couldn’t help it, he grunted. Lambert’s face slowly blanked and he looked down, actually studying Jaskier’s face. “I’m going to fucking murder him!”

    Part 2 of Water of the Womb, I highly suggest reading that first.

    Summary

    They say cats have nine lives, but truthfully, Jaskier has long lost count of his.

    Jaskier has always been very good at playing pretend. It gets harder, after Geralt’s harsh words on the mountain. It gets harder still when he has to save a rogue Wolf and his Child Surprise from Nilfgaard’s gathering forces.

    Summary

    “Geralt, you really don’t have to-” 

    “I want to.” Geralt assured him.

    Jaskier smiled at him, though his eyes, for some reason, looked a bit manic. “Well, then. You’re going to meet my whole family. This week. What fun.” 

    “I will be polite,” Geralt promised, “I will only carry my daggers.” 

    “Lovely,” Jaskier said. Geralt wasn’t sure why he said it into his hands.

    “Next time, before you judge someone,” he lowers his voice and slams a knife into the table, centimeters from Lambert’s hand. “Think. Remember, I’m not just a bard or a Viscount.”

    Summary

    It takes a year for Jaskier to properly lick his wounds after the mountain. When Geralt doesn’t come for him, he makes a promise to himself: he will no longer write about someone else’s life, he’ll write about his own. He hears news of a mysterious town in southern Rivia that isn’t on any Continental maps, so he embarks on a journey to investigate. However, once he gets there, he’s embroiled in something he’d never thought possible — his own Destiny, his cursed Child Surprise.

    When Geralt and Jaskier cross paths again, Jaskier makes the decision to follow Geralt one last time: to the halls of Kaer Morhen, where he and his Child can be safe. The threat of a second war hangs over the Continent like a ghost, and with a dark rider hot on their trail, Jaskier can think of no safer place than beside his old muse, no matter the cost to his own heart.
