    Summary

    As he prepares to leave the mountain and Geralt behind, Jaskier finds out that he's not quite human. Instead, he's a demi-god, and the path to godhood lies before him. It's a bad idea, but when has that ever stopped him? (Besides, it's not like he's needed here...)

    Meanwhile, Geralt is on Jaskier's trail, intent on making amends.

    But the road is rarely kind, and Destiny has its sights set on them...

    Summary

    Really, this was just marvellous! He hadn't even been looking for trouble! Barely two weeks without Geralt, and already he was in mortal peril!

     

     

    Jaskier leaves Geralt on the mountain, and almost instantly gets sucked into trouble, (through no fault of his own, he might add!) An encounter with a sorcerer leaves him temporarily stuck in a form he'd never really liked, and the whole godsdamned affair leaves him careering back into Geralt's life again.

    Which is ideal, really.

     

    Or, Geralt finds a wolf, and then he finds his bard again. It takes him a long time to work out the connection.

    Summary

    "Every insult, every criticism will be marked upon you, forever reminding you that you are nothing but a simple, pathetic human, who thinks too grand of himself."

    Well, it was a good thing young Julian was already used to being criticised on a daily basis.

    --

    "If life could give me one blessing, it would be to take you off my hands!"

    Jaskier wasn't sure if the pain crackling through him was from the curse or his heart breaking.

    Or: How Jaskier was cursed from childhood, and manages his way through life, seeking a cure, and finding the White Wolf instead.

    Summary

    “Where are you going?” Geralt shouts over the storm. Jaskier doesn’t turn back, doesn’t answer him. Just keeps moving. “Jaskier, get back inside—”

    “I’m leaving,” Jaskier calls over his shoulder.

    “You can’t survive the Killer in—”

    “Why do you even care?” Jaskier demands, finally whirling on Geralt. “You told me what you thought of me already. I should’ve listened the first time. You— All you do is—” His jaw works for a frustrated second before he shouts, wordless, digging the heels of his hands into his eyes again. “I can’t even fucking yell at you right!"

    Summary

    “You know,” the old man says with a knowing smile, “if ever there was a place where you could recite and sing of Kaer Morhen, it is within her walls. Perhaps your stay will bring some lightness to all of us and not only the child and Geralt.”

    Jaskier hides the stab of pain at the implication that Geralt might be glad to see him, instead he offers another simple bow and thanks Vesemir for his hospitality before fleeing into the room.

    “Oh, you fool,” he whispers to himself as he falls into a nearby seat, “you bloody heartsick fool, you should have run. Why don’t you ever run?”

    - - -

    After a year of training Ciri in monster-hunting and Chaos, Vesemir and Yennefer agree that her education needs a boost of court politics and wordplay, which means bringing an angry heartbroken master of the seven liberal arts to Kaer Morhen.

    Summary

    From Jaskier, at least, it is friendship--love--unreturned but no less powerful because of it. He will still give his life for Geralt if it comes to it, and for all the witchers he’s never met who call Kaer Morhen their home. Their stronghold is Jaskier’s unfortunate secret to keep, and he will.

    ~*~

    In the wake of the events on the mountain, Jaskier is captured by Nilfgaardian soldiers who are determined to find Geralt and Ciri. It will take all his courage and all his love to survive it, and all the fragile possibilities that come after.

    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

    All his life, Jaskier knew he was meant for something important. He couldn’t tell you what it was exactly what it was, what it would be when it would happen, but he just knew it would be life-changing.

    Summary

    After reuniting on the path after the infamous dragon hunt, Geralt believes that all between him and Jaskier are well. Jaskier has given him no inclination to believe otherwise. But after being summoned home to Lettenhove in the aftermath of a family death, Geralt begins to notice the cracks forming in his carefully constructed facade. Has Geralt simply never noticed or has been buried so deep in his self-loathing that he never allowed himself to see the ever cheerful Jaskier has some demons of his own?

    Summary

    Eventually Jaskier settles down on the bed. When he’s been silent for several long moments Geralt cracks open an eye. The light from the fire in the hearth is more than enough to see by for his enhanced eyesight. Jaskier is curled up on the bed, back to the wall and limbs gathered up to his chest. It’s a childlike pose that strikes a dissonant chord in Geralt’s chest. He remembers spending nights with Jaskier in other inns, in camps on the roadside, and Jaskier sprawls when he sleeps. Limbs flung out in every direction, sometimes close enough to grasp for Geralt’s warmth.

    ---

    When Geralt carries Jaskier out of the cellar beneath the cottage on the outskirts of the abandoned town he thinks, this is as bad as it will get.

    Summary

    “Because, I—I can’t help it,” Jaskier said and even over the rushing of the wind, Geralt could hear his heartbeat quicken. “I love you, Geralt. I have for so, so long. Thought you should know.”

    Geralt’s eyes widened. He turned back—shock beating out his anger. He met Jaskier’s gaze and it hurt to see the tears streaming down his face. For a moment, Geralt thought he must have heard wrong. How could Jaskier love him? How could he say that right after Geralt told him he wanted to be rid of him? Too startled to say anything, silence hung heavy between them. Only the sound of rushing wind and his own pounding heart filled Geralt’s ears.

     

    When Geralt tells Jaskier he wants nothing more than to be rid of him, he's startled when Jaskier confesses that he has loved him for years. Unable to say anything back, Geralt thinks about that moment over and over again until he and Ciri run into Jaskier again in Ard Carraigh. Either he needs to finally voice thoughts he's kept hidden for years or risk losing Jaskier forever.

    Summary

    Until he hears some bad news about his bard friend and comes to some realisations. About how much he wronged Jaskier. About how much he's lost.

    Summary

    Jaskier held his hands up in front of him. “Alright, Geralt, alright! I’m not a wizard!”

    “Then what—”

    “I’m an emotional manipulator!”

    There was a pause. Geralt stared at Jaskier, until Jaskier blushed. “Well, I mean— I mean I have a power…this ability. I am able, to, um, sense emotions.”

    Another pause. “You can sense emotions,” Geralt repeated, nonplussed.

    “Yes! I can sort of, feel them. In the air, you know,” Jaskier flapped his arms around. “And then, occasionally, with great effort, I can…influence them.”

    ***

    Basically an alternative world in which Jaskier possesses the powers of Jasper from Twilight. No, I will not be taking constructive criticism at this time.

    Summary

    Jaskier has always known he loves in a way that is too much. He gives too much of himself, and wants too much in return. Post mountain break-up, Jaskier starts to doubt his value, attempts to drink Novigrad dry and makes the biggest mistake of his life: getting back with his abusive shit of an ex, Valdo Marx.

    Angst, whump, eventual comfort.

    Summary

    With Ciri safely at Kaer Morhen, Geralt sets off to find and apologize to Jaskier. Of course, he screws it up a little. And of course, Nilfgaard shows up just in time to learn how important this bard is to the Witcher, and how easy it would be to use him for leverage.

     

    (Yes! This is another story in which Nilfgaard kidnaps the boys to get information about Ciri, because uhh I love them.)

    Summary

    After yelling at Jaskier on the mountain, Geralt remembers what happened the last time he wished for peace from Jaskier and panics, chasing after the bard to fix his mistakes. It seems- however- that Destiny is quick to please (that bitch) and finds Jaskier in much worse condition than he left in.
