    Summary

    "Other than cats, Dragons are the only creature that is known to absorb magical energy directly from their environment,” Villentretenmerth says.

    “Cats.” Jaskier’s question comes out flat. Villentretenmerth nods, sagely.

    “Cats,” he says. “Nobody knows what they do with it.” Jaskier feels a headache coming on.

    Summary

    Geralt is killed before he can apologize to Jaskier for what he said on the mountain, and so his ghost lingers on, watching over his bard.

    Jaskier doesn't take the news of Geralt's death very well. He would be crying himself to sleep each night if he wasn't spending all his time worrying about a certain power-hungry sorceress.

    Yennefer wants a child, and with Geralt gone, it only seems fitting that she should care for his surprise child in his stead. Right?

    Even though she's a ghost, Renfri still has something haunting her.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” Geralt says, coming out a bit stilted and awkward. “It was nice, you don’t- It doesn’t have to be made for me, for me to hear it. I don’t care.”

    “That’s not what I mean.”

    “Then- What?”

    He sighs like Geralt is the most exhausting thing in the world to him right now. Geralt tries to ignore the unpleasant feeling it gives him and runs his hand up and down Dandelion’s spine idly.

    “If you gave half of your life to someone, wouldn’t you be just a bit bitter to only ever be their second choice, Geralt?” Dandelion asks, sounding more tired than heated, now. Geralt furrows his eyebrows again, taking another pause with a thoughtful hum, both in favor of thinking through the answer to that and to who he might be referring to. It’s his song, he realizes, but at the same time, it settles that he hadn’t taken the right thing from it. He repeats what he’d heard in his mind, trying to figure it out as he goes.

    AKA, where Dandelion shares a song from his heart to a crowd he thought was lacking its muse, and Geralt puts the pieces together.

    Summary

    Summary

    It’s almost 2 months after the Mountain Incident and Jaskier is sitting at a tavern, drinking his sorrows away. About Geralt, his sorry state of being (no lute, low on coin, alone), fall of Cintra just 2 weeks ago, fate and everything else. He though he was going to stay by the witcher’s side forever, but life’s no fairy tale. So more ale for him.
    In the corner Nilfgaardian soldiers get ready to kidnap the bard and give him to their wicked sorceress leader to force information from him about the lost princess. She may torture and curse him to get what they need, but hey, what can you expect from Fringilla Vigo’s student?

    Geralt’s 100% done with destiny. He’s with Ciri and has to hide from Nilfgaard's forces. And he still has to find Yennefer and beg her to locate his bard, damn it! And he needs to apologise if he wants to get his “dear heart” back.

    Yennefer licks her wound hidden in Brudge and contemplates her life.
    Triss helps fellow mages in Vizima.

    Lambert and Eskel travel south in search of Geralt, because they got letters from his bard saying their brother will need help.
    Oh, and they don’t even know about half of the shitshow it’s about to become. Truly ballad worthy story.

    Summary

    “There are other taverns,” Jaskier pointed out, jerking his head toward the door. “It’s a big enough town.”

    “True,” Geralt replied.

    “And yet, here you are.”

    Geralt tilted his head a little. “You’re not in the other ones.”

    “That was sort of my point,” Jaskier said into his tankard as he took another drink.

    ~*~

    Geralt tries to apologize. Jaskier tries to listen.

    Summary

    He knew better. Of course he knew better! Numerous decades will beat understanding into you whether you want it to or not, really. Of course knowing better doesn't mean following through with that knowledge. Knowing better doesn't mean you'll sit back and let your best friend die just because he has an overwhelming death wish and you haven't seen him in over a year.

    Summary

    A bard singing in the woods is nothing much worth paying attention to, he’s done it for years without interruption. So, he makes up a song on the fly—a very thinly veiled warning about conniving nobles and traps set for hissing creatures. It’s the best he can do.

    Apparently, his best is good enough this time, because when he turns around to head back to his room for the night, he nearly smashes his nose into a witcher’s chest.

     

    (After the dragon hunt fiasco, Jaskier accidentally finds himself adopted and thoroughly loved by a clowder of Cats.)

    Summary

    Where was he? Ah yes, he was waiting for Geralt, mind set to apologising for his inappropriate behaviour, and while he waited he thought to flirt a bit with the handsome snack of a man that was drinking vodka all alone at the bar.

    In retrospect, that was a fucking stupid idea because who the fuck drinks vodka all by themselves early in the morn all while dressed to impress a bloody king? Should have smelled the nasty stench of chaos on the man the moment he laid eyes on him. But nooooo, Jaskier had to think with his dick.

    Summary

    Jaskier doesn't know where Geralt is, but he hopes his friend never learns that this is how he died: lying at the side of the road, like a dandelion plucked and then discarded.

    Summary

    As Jaskier stumbled down the mountain, alone and brokenhearted, the world around him seemed dull. Desaturated and without the vibrancy it normally held.

    He blamed his sadness for it.

    Little did he know his heartbreak was the beginning of a process he never thought he would experience.

    Or the AU where losing one's soulmate leads to the loss of the ability to see colours.

    Summary

    When Jaskier comes down from the Dragon Mountains, he doesn’t know what to do with himself. His closest friend turns out to have been serious when he said that they were not friends, and now Jaskier is adrift. He’s without a muse and without a purpose.

    Without intending it, he finds himself swept up in monster hunting due to his long association with Geralt, even though he’s a bard, with no weapon, no training, and no mutations to help him.

    And yet he survives.
