    Summary

    On the walls, faded color photos of a super dressed half in knight's armor, a golden dragon emblazoned on their chest, posing proudly in the central square. The kind of propaganda he had only seen atop piles for burning in demonstrations. His stomach churned.

    Gaius picked a scrap of red cloth from the work bench and handed it to Arthur, who felt his fingers trembling around the fabric. It was a mask. But it couldn't be a mask, not unless.... "You're saying my mother was a superhero?"

    Summary

    Jaskier left the mountain with his heart broken in a manner that he knew all too well. When he meets up with Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri they ask him to accompany them to Kaer Morhen, but surely a burden of a bard has no place in their new family.

    Post-mountain, heavy angst with a happy ending Geraskier, featuring platonic Yennskier and Yennalt. + immortal Jaskier and Ciri getting the family she deserves.

    Summary

    [Full Summary Inside]
    A thousand and five-hundred years ago, Arthur Pendragon is sent to the god Emrys as Camelot’s yearly tribute. He comes to befriend the god, and as the prince continues to spend time on the god’s island, something more seems to blossom between them. But then the lady Morgana goes missing, and Arthur betrays Emrys to his father in a moment of misguided trust. Emrys’ island burns, the heartbroken god refusing to fight for his life. In dying, he puts a terrible curse upon the prince: to live forever, and never to forget.
    A millennium and a half has passed. Arthur is being slowly torn apart from the inside-out, memories of the past an ever-growing weight in his chest. When he finally finds Emrys again, he is elated- he’s ready to beg, weep, anything, if only he can find blissful forgetfulness. But while the god’s power has not faded, his memories have, and he lives his life as young artist Merlin Emrys, believing himself to be a simple man with interesting gifts. And Arthur’s hopes are dashed. But there is one last way: Arthur can try, and make Merlin remember again.

    Summary

    “Jaskier,” Geralt breathes out, checking Jaskier’s body for injuries, relieved to find none. “Are you alright?”
    Jaskier opens his mouth to respond, but -

    Nothing comes out.

    Geralt’s heart drops. Jaskier opens his mouth again, his lips moving, but no sound comes out, and Geralt watches helplessly as Jaskier’s face fills with an indescribable fear, the putrid scent of utter panic filling the air.

    Fuck. Whatever the mage had done, whatever that magic had been - Jaskier has lost his voice.

    Or: Geralt and Jaskier reunite after the dragon hunt - but something is different. Their dynamic has changed, and it changes even more when Jaskier is cursed to lose his voice. Wallowing in guilt, thinking that it’s his fault, Geralt scrambles to find a cure.

    Summary

    Not long ago, he wouldn’t have feared this, might have been quietly resigned to it, might have even welcomed it. But not now, not when he was finally finding himself with something to live for.
    Not now. Please, not now.
    Fate was cruel, that way.

    -

    Title from the Emily Dickinson poem. I wanted to explore my experience of living and dealing with depression through Geralt and his (incredibly depressing) witcher life. Near-death experiences and mentions of suicidal ideation ahead, though it's not Geralt trying to die so much as not caring if he does.
