    Summary

    Jaskier has become adept at looking at Geralt only as much as Geralt wants to be looked at - but it's harder, recently, when his eyes catch on Geralt's body without his notice. Geralt, for his part, has accepted the fact that Jaskier just doesn't want him, and that stings a little but he's fine with it. It's just a little confusing now that Jaskier smells like he does.

    Or, grey-ace Jaskier tries to figure out what being attracted to someone entails while Geralt loses his mind over what Jaskier smelling like attraction means. Rating is for the second chapter only.

    Summary

    Geralt, despite what he says, does have humanity in him. Jaskier seeks it, cultivates it, cherishes it. Geralt doesn't know how to ask for things that a human needs. Luckily, Jaskier knows him, and how to help.

    Summary

    This had been a mistake. His Jaskier, warm where Geralt was cold, soft edges where Geralt had hardened, Jaskier who fucking smiled when Geralt looked at him and fell in love like it was something you could give away for free. Jaskier who found the plainest girl in the room and danced with her until dawn as though it was an honour, leaving her flushed and her enemies jealous. Jaskier who used touch to talk just as much as he used words –

    The warm body beside Geralt shifts and rolled over, and Geralt keeps his back turned, keeps looking over the side of the bed at the broken floorboard and the sharp nail sticking out of it, anything other than turning and finding –

    Jaskier.

    (or: after finally falling into bed together, Geralt wakes up and promptly freaks out. Thankfully his bard knows him.)

    Summary

    Geralt has carried Jaskier's love for him in his saddlebags for over two decades, bound in the pages of an overflowing leather journal. It takes a Child Surprise, a furious fight on a barren mountain, and the reconciliation of his responsibilities for Geralt to realize that he feels the same.

    Summary

    As they were laying there in the dark not sleeping Jaskier murmured, “I’ll do my best to protect you.”

    Something hot flared in Geralt’s chest. “Listen to me. If there’s trouble, do not worry about me. You run away. If you can’t run away, then fight with everything you’ve got. But don’t fight for me.”

    Jaskier huffed a hollow laugh. “You say that as if it’s a choice I could make.”

    “Jaskier,” he said helplessly, completely at a loss as to what to do with the emotion crowding out everything else in his chest. 'Do not love me,' he wanted to say. 'Do not love me.'

    ***

    Geralt is cursed with blindness and Jaskier must lead him on a journey to restore his sight. He has to learn how to see what is right in front of him, and have the courage to step forward and take a chance on something when his whole way of life hangs in the balance.
