    Summary

    Addiction is larger than life, Regis thinks in one of his clearer moments, because it takes and takes, until there isn’t anything left. It is the ultimate consummation of a persona, inverted to eat itself away to nothingness.
    There are so many nightmares, hallucinations, and physical pains that he loses count. Regis is petrified he will end up hurting Geralt, because his friend is the focal point of everything Regis has denied from himself; if and when he breaks, Geralt will not be safe.

    When the world collapses, something new starts to emerge from the ruins of a life. Sometimes losing who you are means finding that again.

    Summary

    "Jaskier, how drunk are you?" he asks, and Jaskier breathes a laugh into Geralt's shoulder.

    "I am excellently drunk, Geralt, I've done a very good job of it. I am as drunk as a Skelligen skunk."

    "There are no skunks on Skellige."

    "I am as drunk as a Skelligen monk, then."

    Which is fairly drunk, all things considered; Skelligens don't fuck around about that sort of thing.


    Geralt has been foolish about many things in his long life, and every time to his detriment; he'll not make the mistake of deluding himself that someone like Jaskier, with all the world open to him and everything to offer in return, would ever really choose Geralt's company in that way.

    (Geralt may not be a reliable narrator of his own life.)

    Summary

    “Well, that’s a separate issue entirely, isn’t it?” Jaskier says, clearly enthused by being taken on. “I’m opposed to marriage on principle. Would you like to know why?”

    “No,” says Geralt.

    “I’ll tell you why,” says Jaskier.
