    Summary

    “Okay, you’re going to have to take a few steps back,” Venti says and immediately, the woman shifts her right leg backwards, foot in the air, and the bard quickly amends, “Oh! Not literally, haha. I just meant—” He pauses. What did he mean? “Dumb question, but who is Venti?”

    The look that is exchanged between the two strangers says more than words could. Venti’s gut drops, his stomach twisting. A cold sweat forms on the back of his neck.

    “Lord Barbatos,” the woman begins again, more hesitantly, “You showed up here late last night. You were speaking nonsense and had a terrible wound on your head. It has since healed. However…” She trails off.

    The man is the one to continue on her behalf, “Where did you go after menacing my tavern?”

    in which venti suffers from a temporary bout of amnesia, stays with diluc, and is confronted with the one thing he's avoided for centuries. or, in other words, zhongli and venti have a misunderstanding and finally talk about it. all of it.

    Summary

    When Geralt loses his memories, it might be up to a strange bard to help him regain them. As Geralt travels the continent with Jaskier, he starts to wonder if he's lost something else, too.

    Or, obligatory amnesia fic.

    Summary

    Everyone knew how the process of finding your soulmate worked; the moment you locked eyes with them, both of you gained the ability to see the world in colour, instead of grey-scale. There was an additional twist, one much less well-known; if one soulmate rejected the other, both were plunged back into a grey-scale world.

    Jaskier's known for years that Geralt is his soulmate, ever since they met and colour flooded into his world. Geralt, on the other hand, has no idea. But Jaskier is sure if he proves himself to Geralt, that everything will work out. And then the mountain happens, and Jaskier isn't sure of anything anymore.

    Summary

    It’s hard to tell what Jaskier's thinking, his back still turned towards Geralt, but if anything his shoulders relax more, and then he brings his hand down and begins to trace his fingers lightly over the back of the doppler’s in little circles. Geralt can only watch, transfixed by the way the bard’s fingers dance over the top of his hand. No – he reminds himself – not his hand. The doppler’s hand. Which just happens to look a lot like his hand.

    A routine hunt takes longer than anticipated, and Geralt returns to find Jaskier sharing a table with a face-stealing monster. He needs to get the bard away from the doppler, but Jaskier appears to have very different intentions for the person he thinks is Geralt of Rivia. Updated to include a chapter from the Doppler's POV!

    Summary

    When he gets back, two bowls of stew and a jug of wine balanced precariously in his hands courtesy of a grateful mother, Geralt is exactly where he left him. He’s fast asleep, chest slowly rising and falling beneath the blanket still draped over him.

    Roach glances over and nickers at him softly. “You and me, girl, we’ve got a hell of a job on our hands,” Jaskier whispers to her. “Don’t you worry, though. I’ll stick around for a bit. Help you out.”

    Roach flicks an ear at him, and then goes back to her hay. Jaskier heaves a sigh. “Sometimes I feel so unappreciated.”

    Summary

    About fifteen minutes after Jaskier's attempt at crawling through the seemingly perfectly human-sized hole in the wall, he admits to himself that he is well and truly stuck, unable to make progress forward or backward. About ten minutes after that, he resigns himself to the inevitability of humiliation and mockery, and starts shouting for help. It's a keep full of witchers; someone is bound to hear.

     

    Someone does.

    Winters at Kaer Morhen are tough in many ways - not least of which is obiding by Geralt's strict no-touching rule when it comes to his goddamn bard. He's a temptation and a half and everyone is just about ready to go insane.

    When Jaskier gets himself thoroughly stuck in a compromising situation, the temptation proves too much to resist.

    Summary

    "Thrown out already?" Geralt asks, and sees the bard shaking his head from the corner of his eye.

    "Hardly! But a wise bard knows when to leave the audience wanting more."

    "I've never met one."

    "One what?"

    "A wise bard," he says, and glances over to see the bard's mouth flapping indignantly.

    "I -- am going to let that go, because you're right, where are my manners." He ducks in front of Geralt as they step onto solid ground, forcing him to halt, and gives him a bow, no less graceful for being quickly executed. "Jaskier, troubadour, poet -- and barker -- at your service."

    __________________________________

    Geralt assumes the bard will wander away of his own accord. Eventually.

    It takes a while to realize that's the last thing he wants.

    Summary

    "I thought you'd be mad. I thought you'd yell and curse me out and hit me. You're just… quiet."

    "I was mad, incredibly so, for a while. I didn't deserve what you said to me and if you ever do anything like that again, I'll leave and this time I will stay gone," Jaskier says. "But if it's punishment you're looking for, then you won't get it from me. I know you, Geralt. You've probably already punished yourself more than enough."

    Geralt remains silent.

    Jaskier sighs and gets up. "I'm going to get some sleep," he says and then he bends down and Geralt feels a kiss being pressed to the top of his head. "Get some rest, too. You look like you need it as much as Ciri and I do, darling."

    ———

    On their way to Kaer Morhen, Geralt and Ciri come across Jaskier, who is also trying to evade Nilfgaard's soldiers. Geralt asks Jaskier to join them—so he can keep him safe and, hopefully, fix what he broke between them.

    Summary

    Geralt doesn’t need to look. Can already tell how Destiny has decided to punish him next. But he looks anyway. Sees Jaskier standing there. A flush upon his cheeks, a spark in his eye, tension in his shoulders.

    All the mirth from moments ago has evaporated.

    In it’s place, righteous anger.

    -

    Be it coincidence or destiny, Geralt and Jaskier meet in a tavern once again.

    Summary

    Geralt has only been back at the keep for two weeks and he’s entirely over the way his brothers keep making faces over his scent.

    “Stop it,” he growls one day, narrowing his eyes at Lambert. “Don’t make me remind you of what happens when Aiden stays here. The both of you make the whole keep smell like sweat and sex all winter, not just yourselves.”

    Predictably, the youngest cub rolls his eyes, pretending he’s not flushed at the reminder of all that, and scoffs. “At least mine was another witcher,” he retorts. “You brought a bloody bard.”

    Summary

    He grabbed Jaskier’s wrist, held it firm as he swallowed the crumbling pastry in one, wolfish bite. He hardly tasted it, in truth, too preoccupied with the scrape of his teeth against the pads of Jaskier’s fingers. 

    When Jaskier withdrew his hand he looked shaken, his breathing just a touch uneven. “Hungry boy,” he muttered, his eyes cutting away. “Spare me my livelihood, at least.” 

    Geralt grunted as he rubbed the crumbs from his lips, thinking, that’s what I would do to him. Consume him entirely and in the whole.

    Summary

    Jaskier can’t really stop smiling. He picks out the first notes to Toss a Coin- pure instinct, really, it’s his most popular song- and gets a laugh out of Eskel.

    “Ah, that song,” He shakes his head. “I got treated a bit better after it came out. Always wanted to thank the writer.”

    Jaskier feels his ears go a bit hot and he almost says “you’re welcome” right back, but when he looks up Eskel isn’t looking at him. He’s messing with the fire and organizing things in his bag. Does he not… know that Jaskier wrote that song? His heart pounds high in his throat. For some reason, the idea of not being known as Geralt’s feels heady. So he shuts his mouth and focuses back onto his lute, picking out another song that he’s been working on, not yet released.

    Eskel is smiling and tapping his foot and he hums along once he knows the melody. Jaskier feels high on it.

    Summary

    “We met five years ago or thereabouts,” Geralt says through gritted teeth. “You came up to me in a tavern near Posada, decided I would be good song material, and we’ve travelled together, off and on, ever since.”

    “Huh,” Jaskier says.

    “You remember?” Geralt tries to keep the note of hope out of his voice, and doubts he’s been successful.

    “Not in the slightest,” Jaskier says cheerfully. “But I must admit it sounds like something I’d do.”

    When Jaskier forgets their life together, Geralt learns an unexpected lesson.

    Summary

    "For a while, Jaskier doesn’t know he’s cursed. It feels like free will, going back down that mountain, just as dangerous down as the way up, and alone this time, too. The descent is fast, maybe even reckless, but Jaskier’s feeling numb and out-of-sorts anyways, Geralt’s words simmering in his mind, and at the time it doesn’t feel like he’s being pulled on by anything but his own desire to get away."

    Based off a post that Geralt's words on the mountain are granted by the djinn.

    Summary

    “Xiao,” Venti said, his voice softer than the tunes of his lyre. “You’re hurting.”

    Xiao couldn’t exactly refute him, not when the blood on his arms—though not all of it was his—and the slumped posture of his body were saying otherwise. His throat twisted when he tried to lie, so he settled for a truth, avoiding Venti’s gaze. “It’s nothing I can’t handle.”

    Venti sighed, his usually playful demeanor replaced by something far more concerned. “Come on.” When Xiao looked over again, Venti had climbed the tree and was now sitting on one of its branches. He patted the space beside him. “Let’s take a break.”

    Xiao takes care of the dangers lurking around Wangshu Inn at night. Venti takes care of him.

    Summary

    Despite Jaskier's hard work, there are still plenty of people who hate witchers. They think they're monstrous, inhuman, only held back from violence by a thin veneer of control. One mage has a plan to spread his views by capturing a witcher and bewitching them to remove their control. When the Butcher of Blaviken walks into his hideout, he's convinced he's found the perfect candidate - and a convenient way to get rid of the pesky bard that's been singing his praises.

    Jaskier is forced to agree witchers are not human, but that doesn't mean they're dangerous. In fact, he's astounded by how many of Geralt's uncontrolled impulses involve touching.

    Summary

    Some songs, Jaskier sings for Geralt only. Too bad it takes Geralt so long to notice.

    To anyone else, Jaskier would be just a spot of movement in the darkness. Movement and a soft clear voice, picking up the threads of a refrain, winding them together, letting go again. But Geralt can see him quite clearly.

    He rides with his chin up, eyes front, easy with the motion of his horse. He’s within arm’s reach, but he looks far, far away.

    Summary

    The lone guardian of the forest bordering the Abyss has never paid much mind to how alone he is most of the time, despite how often he is posed this question from curious travelers. He has a duty to fulfill and no time to dwell on feelings of loneliness.

    That is until a certain troublesome wind spirit stumbles back into the forest as suddenly as he'd left all those years ago and makes him forget why he ever preferred being alone in the first place.
