    Summary

    Death has ever been the closest partner in the dance that you Witchers call your lives, the Grey God offers. Severing the thread is not difficult.
    *

    Summary

    Tony Stark died trapped in his suit in that frozen base in Siberia. Slowly, painfully. Alone.

    “Big man in a suit of armor. Take that off, what are you?”
    “Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.”

    But when that’s taken too?

    “Come on now, wolf,” Tony hears someone saying above him. “No time to be napping.”

    Tony Stark wakes up to find himself alive, one of the last surviving witchers of the School of the Wolf after the sacking of Kaer Morhen. He has no idea how he got here and even less clue how to get home. But that doesn't mean he won't try to find a way.

    Starks are made of iron, after all. No matter what world they find themselves in.

    Summary

    With no one left after the massacre to tell Vesemir how to honor their fallen brothers, he made his own rules. A brick for each of those gone, an unfinished temple, and a place of peace for wolves past, present, and future.

    Summary

    His gaze shifts to the corner, where the miasma seems to be more concentrated and his ears pick up the slow beating of a heart.

    Beneath a ratty blanket, a man —an elf and Cat witcher if the medallion hanging from his clenched fist is any indication— is leaning on the wall, face half-covered, eyes screwed shut and skin more purple than bronze-brown.

    Summary

    “When Geralt set out from Kaer Morhen, all those years ago, still haunted by the ache of what had been done to him he hadn’t imagined himself ever coming back”
    Or, Geralt is finally ready to come home, only to return to a Kaer Morhen that isn’t how he left it and a broken family that will need help to pull through the aftermath of the massacre.

    Can be read as a standalone but it would probably be good to read "Oh Such a Spring" first.

    Summary

    There are no such things as Alphas, Betas, and Omegas under the Wolves of Kaer Morhen when Geralt and Eskel grow up.

    There are only Witchers and mages and alchemists who make sure that the weaknesses and instabilities that inevitably come with the secondary gender are eradicated.

    Until the fateful day that changes everything.

    Summary

    Lambert had stared at Geralt with awestruck wonder. “We have the same hair!” he’d said, reaching out to touch one of Geralt’s reddish curls. They had been several shades darker than Lambert’s own, but still just as vibrant. 

    Geralt had laughed. “It would seem we do, little pup.” 

    “I’ve never met anyone with hair like mine,” Lambert had whispered, like he was telling a secret. “Except my mummy.” 

    “Well,” Geralt had said, placing his large hand on Lambert’s shoulder. “I can’t replace your mother. But we could be brothers. Would you like that?” 

     

    or: lambert and geralt used to be close, but geralts second trials changed that. now, in the aftermath of the sacking, they find their way back to eachother

    Summary

    They walk the walls of the keep together in silence, making note of the damage left by the Wild Hunt’s attack. Eskel lights the beacons one by one as they pass, just like Vesemir did. The sun’s just barely risen for the day so he knows it’s only a waste of good wood, but he can’t help himself. Besides - who’s left to complain? 

    There’s something soothing in the action, the ritual of it. Maybe that’s why the old man always did it. Maybe it helped him deal with his own ghosts.

    Lambert doesn’t roast him for being overly sentimental or anything either.

    Not today at least.

    Eskel grieves after The Battle of Kaer Morhen.

    Summary

    For the first time in his life – well, the part of his life that mattered, in any case – Geralt realized after he’d made camp that first night, crossing his arms under his head and staring at the clear night sky above him, he was without Eskel, and he felt as if a chunk of his heart had been taken away.

    -

    Geralt's love for Eskel throughout the years.

    Summary

    He could smell the death before he reached the fortress. Geralt broke into a run, racing into the main hall. Bodies lay scattered about, some of them belonging to the attackers, yes, but the overwhelming majority were Wolf Witchers. Children and even the Companions were scattered about, having been slaughtered along with the others.

    Summary

    The best theory he or Eskel can come up with is that Geralt’s mother, if his hazy memories can be trusted, was some sort of druid, so maybe the second set of Trials woke something long dormant in his blood.

    Whatever the reason, at least it’s usually easy to conceal the little twigs that grow out of his head like his newly-white hair; they’re small, and soft, and a witcher’s hair is always full of sticks and leaves and mud anyhow, so they don’t really stand out.

    Summary

    Vesemir remembers the way Geralt had clenched his fingers into Vesemir's skin when he had carried him out of the cave after the Trials. He has always seen it as his duty to be the one to carry out the bodies of his boys, dead or alive. It was his hands that had shaped and prepared them; tried to give them every chance they could get to survive what lay ahead, to make them all survive, even if they never did. It should be his hands who buried them, as well. None of the others at the keep had ever fully understood, not until he met Guxart, another swordmaster. You might not have children of your own blood, Guxart had said, looking at him, but I know you have buried more of your sons than most towns will lose men in war.
    *

    Geralt has left Kaer Morhen for his first year on the Path and is soon confronted with the realities of a Witcher's life. Vesemir finds and rescues him and is confronted with having to try to teach his pup about the realities of living with failure.
