    Summary

    You are destruction, Jaskier’s mentor tells him. Death and destruction thrum in Jaskier’s core of chaos, his magic bringing nothing but annihilation, and Jaskier hates it.

    But music is not destruction. Music is creation, and it sings in Jaskier’s veins. There is nothing quite like the rush of joy and energy whenever music flows through him, and he forgets about the destruction that his chaos is capable of as music fills his soul.

    After decades of being a sorcerer, Jaskier finds himself in music, and for the first time, his magic brings life.

    Summary

    "Geralt of Rivia was clearly lonely. And he didn’t deserve to be. Ciri was just pleased that he’d let down his walls enough for her to see past his gruffness and get to know the person underneath. It made sense that he had shown his softer side to her; she was the only person who wasn’t scared of him.
    Or at least, that’s what she thought. "

    Summary

    Geralt wakes up and immediately misses the bliss of being passed out. From blood loss, probably. He doesn't really remember, but his sword arm is completely numb and he has a headache that must have been caused by an angry god. Opening his eyes is not a priority.

    Yes, but waking up means you are alive which is the preferred state for a Witcher to be, Geralt.

     

    Or:
    Geralt loses his memory and needs to figure out how he acquired a bard of all things. Most importantly, he must figure out how to keep him.

    Summary

    The door to Eskel’s room is ajar, with Lil’ Bleater sitting in the crack, standing guard.

    This in and of itself is not unusual. What is unusual is that Eskel’s goat reeks of chamomile—the very same oil that Jaskier had used on his… Geralt blinks at the animal, and the animal blinks back, its soft, downy fur combed and plaited into a beautiful network of braids. It’s… weird.

    AKA

    That fic where Jaskier braids every other Witchers' (and one goat's) hair in Kaer Morhen EXCEPT for Geralt, and Geralt wants to know why.

    Summary

    Almost 2 years after the moutain, Geralt is coping. He's fine. He's making great decisions like taking a contract on an ice troll at the start of winter, in the mountains. The hunt goes wrong and he finds himself dying in a ravine, covered in snow, cold and alone.

    And then, like an angel descenting from heaven, is the cat. A rare species of cat, a snow leopard that seems determined to keep Geralt alive, even against his own wishes. Geralt can do nothing but let him, and maybe talk - he was always better at talking to animals and he has many regrets to comb through.

    or i do uno reverse on the wolf geralt trope and make jaskier a big kitty after the moutain and geralt, ofc, doesn't realize. thats it

    Summary

    In Jaskier’s defense, he hadn’t actually believed Geralt would come looking for him eventually, so he figured that telling his mother that the Witcher was the father of the child he was carrying would be a completely harmless lie.
    And then of course Geralt had walked back into his life and things got… complicated.

    Summary

    Jaskier has always felt things on a deeper level than most, and more often, and he has gone through life this way. He has coping mechanisms, of course - drinking, talking, singing, etc. He can't be overwhelmed by his emotions all the time, after all.

    After the mountain, Jaskier's coping mechanism is drinking. Turns out, there's something in it, and Nilfgaard knows exactly how to break the songbird.

    Summary

    He’d been the last Crane to complete the trials.
    He dressed in his lightweight, dark blue armour, mechanically. He trimmed his beard – it hid the scar running through his mouth, a little, at least.
    He took stock.
    4 limbs. 2 swords. 1 Witcher.
    The empty pit in his stomach gaped like a maw.
    Here we go then Jask, Julian, back on the path.

    x

    After a fight with bandits leaves Crane Witcher Jaskier without his glamour, he's forced back onto a Path he left 30 years ago and spirals down the same melancholic pit he'd thought he'd escaped. By chance he stumbles across the lost Princess of Cintra, and vows to take her to Geralt despite the unfortunate nature of their parting.

    Summary

    “This drink, the mage made it. It is going to make you a good boy,” she brushed back his hair, too long nails trailing along his cheek. “But you cannot tell anyone. You cannot tell a soul about this drink or this spell. You don’t talk about it. You keep it secret.”

     

    Julian opened his mouth to ask more and was hit by a pain he had never experienced. The boy cried out in pain and doubled over, arm wrapping around his screaming middle. His mother shushed him and pet at him until he was able to catch his breath.

     

    “See what happens to naughty little boys who don’t listen?” Her voice was sharp. “I told you not to say anything.”

    --

    Jaskier was cursed with obedience as a child and has mostly learned to get by without others knowing. Geralt is not most people.

    Summary

    “He twirled between tables, voice rising and falling, glancing surreptitiously around for an escape route. There was a small door behind the dais and the main entrance through which the queen had entered—both manned by four guards. Jaskier mentally calculated the blows to his dignity if he just booked it through the main door mid-song."

    -or-
    Jaskier is an empath.

    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

    As he watches his blood slowly dripping on the ground, Jaskier wonders. Had he known how it would end, would he have done things differently ?
    Would he still have spent half of his life trailing after a witcher that did not love him as he wished, travelling the Continent to sing his praise to every willing ear ?
    Unbidden, the memory of Geralt’s face, sheepishly smiling as he receives a small bouquet of wildflower flashes in his mind and he knows. It might have taken him long to get here but one thing is for sure. Despite the hardships and the pain, he knows. It was all worth it.

    Or as he is facing what could very well be his last moment, Jaskier thinks back on his life and his journey through self discovery

    Summary

    "Do you need anything? A bath, obviously, but anything else? Any wounds that need cleaning or stitching?" Jaskier asks, the words tumbling out of his mouth too fast. "I can help. Do you need me to get something?"

    "Jask."

    "Don't," Jaskier snaps and his shoulders fall. "Just… please, don't."

    "Don't what?" Geralt asks. He feels like he missed half of the conversation and he's starting to get frustrated, unsure about what is wrong with Jaskier and how to help him. "What the fuck is going on?"

    Jaskier swallows and licks his lips. "Just tell me what you need me to do. Please."

    ————

    Geralt comes across Jaskier in a small town by accident and asks him to travel with him again, hoping things will go back to the way they were before the fight. But Jaskier is different—he's more subdued and cautious, and entirely too agreeable. Geralt doesn't know what's wrong with him, but he's determined to fix it.

    Summary

    It is Vesemir who finds him, a fox with such bright blue eyes and a scent Vesemir knows so well after having it cling to Geralt for eighteen years.

    Vesemir has hunted that scent, intent on finding the Bard his pup misses so desperately. But he'd given it up for the year, returning to Kaer Morhen in hopes his other pups have more than he does. Hoping one of them actually found the human and convinced him to come.

    So when he finds the fox, who's definitely the Bard, Vesemir isn't quite prepared, nor is he ready for the fact that the 'human' Geralt had accompanying him for the past twenty years is definitely not human.

    Summary

    Jaskier storms off the mountain and sets about putting his life back together. He tries a bit of everything, gets some good advice, and puts it to use. No matter how much he tries to put Geralt behind him, that SOB keeps coming back, in his mind and in his life. What's a bard supposed to do when the man he cares so deeply for, who he went to the ends of the earth for, won't do the same for him?

    Summary

    He had imagined their reunion a thousand different ways since they parted on the mountain. In every scenario, though, Geralt had imagined Jaskier well and whole and safe. Like he must be, when not putting himself in danger with Geralt. Not like this.

     

    Geralt and Jaskier reunite outside of Vizima, while war and sickness ravage the Continent.

    Summary

    The path was not a comfortable place. It was never meant to be. Someone had to walk the path and hunt the monsters down.
    Witchers were made so that no human would ever have to.
    That is, no human until Jaskier.
