    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

    “And yet, my dear witcher, you haven’t aged one bit since the day I met you.”
    “Haven’t I?”
    “Mm-hmm.”
    “Haven’t I really?” Geralt murmurs again. Jaskier untangles their tight embrace to see the witcher’s worried frown. “All these years, for all you've seen me misplaced in time. Do I never look older than I am now?”

    Geralt and Jaskier are determined to build a life together, but whatever blessing or curse that makes time travel possible may also bring doom to their intertwined fate.

    Summary

     Geralt could hear the other heartbeat in Jaskier’s sleep-laden body. It pulsated twice as fast as Jaskier’s heartbeat, in his belly. That belly was not as flat as it used to be. That belly did not have the necessary organs for a second heartbeat to exist in it.
     But Geralt could hear it, like distant thunder rolling across a black sky, heralding a lightning storm headed straight for them.
     A heartbeat signified life. A heartbeat was the sound of a muscular organ pounding in the chest of a living entity, pumping blood through a body to keep it alive, to aid in its growth.
     Jaskier’s heartbeat was a sound that comforted Geralt. It was a sound that staved off the screams of monsters and people he’d killed with his knives, his swords, his bare hands, from his conscious mind. A sound that lulled him into rare deep sleep, while he lied next to Jaskier and listened to its stable rhythm echoing from that hirsute, lean chest.
     There was nothing comforting about this other heartbeat.

    When Geralt catches the attention of an evil, sadistic sorcerer who wants to hurt the witcher, Jaskier pays the heavy price for it.

    Summary

    “How do you think your strong will compares to a strong arm?”

    Jaskier closed his eyes and allowed himself a single, self-deprecating chuckle. “Rather badly it would seem.”

    Cahir huffed in response, releasing his hold and brushing a gentle hand down Jaskier’s hair. “You have other uses I suppose.”

    *******

    Follows on from ‘Rare Species’. Jaskier and Geralt have been separated for a year. During that time Jaskier’s acclaim has continued to flourish far and wide, until eventually he attracts the attention of an emperor.

    Summary

    Jaskier wasn't exactly sure what he had expected Kaer Morhen to be like but the keep was everything and nothing like it. The place was a dichotomy. Magnificent and sad in equal measures in its derelict state. Silent but full of noise. Cold yet filled with warmth.

    But most importantly, it was Geralt's home. Seeing him so relaxed, the sharpest edges rounded down with the knowledge of being safe and surrounded by his family was a beautiful sight to behold.

    Jaskier wished he too would relearn what safety felt like.

    Summary

    Slash, post-fight, ex-friends to lovers fix-it fic (anotha one)! I originally wrote this as a sequel to a diff fic but decided to rewrite it as a new story set some time after the end of season 1.

    Geralt and Jaskier parted ways after the mountain and are not on speaking terms, but when Geralt overhears some gossip about the dead bodies of bards showing up throughout the countryside and Jaskier goes missing, the tricky hand of fate forces them together yet again. What starts as an abduction snowballs when Jaskier finds out he is at the center of a sinister plot and Geralt may be the only one who can save him.

    It doesn’t help that during their months apart, he came to the grim realization that he is absolutely, incandescently, chest-achingly head over heels in love with the oblivious Witcher. And no, he’s not happy to see him again, even if it is as his rescuer.

    Summary

    Jaskier was part fae. A quarter to be precise.

    There was an old superstition among humans that names held power, but for fae it was so much more than that. Names meant control. If you knew a fae’s name, their true name, they would be completely at your will. If someone knew your true name you were nothing more than their servant. A slave. All it took was a single command.

    When war breaks out between neighboring kingdoms, Jaskier's father uses his true name and commands him to marry a witcher as part of a peace treaty. Neither Jaskier or Geralt are particularly happy with the arrangement. But as Jaskier gets to know him better he realizes that the witcher might just be able to give him the thing he's always craved. Freedom.

    “How is this possible?” He asked. 

    --

    Summary

    Jaskier is a mess of bandages.

    He’s lying on the bed, limp— asleep. His chest rises with a shallow rhythm that Geralt tracks despite himself.

    There are bloody rags all over the floor. More blood in drops leading from the door to the bed. Geralt’s hands are red, cold and wet.

    But Jaskier is resting now. The work is done.

    Summary

    It was just supposed to be a season apart, nothing the two of them hadn’t accomplished before. Sure, Geralt could admit to himself that he did miss the bard, the near constant background noise of his voice and the company he provided--but he knew they would meet again.

    Even if their parting hadn’t been under the best of circumstances.

    But when he finds Jaskier again, waiting in Ard Carraigh almost as if for Geralt before the winter takes, a shadow lingering over him that never did before, Geralt isn’t so sure this was just another parting.

    What has happened to his bard?
