    Summary

    When the elves of the Independent City of Daibazaal face a dragon problem, they call on Master Bard Lotor, their prince, who is the only person qualified to deal with this issue diplomatically.

    For his part, Lotor has never dealt with a dragon this big and powerful before, but he has some ideas of what to do. Tributes of gold or food only go so far to appease such large and powerful dragons. Perhaps if he offers something else...

    It takes a decade for Nicolò to learn to play the oud, and a few more to master it. His hands already know the feeling of gut strings under his fingertips when he picks up a lute in the early years of 1540s. Yusuf is already smiling when he plucks the first string.

    Summary

    “Filthy mutant, we don’t want your kind here,” the man hisses, smashing his tankard against Jaskier’s face, and Geralt sees red. How dare he insult and attack Jaskier like this, when all Jaskier has done is try and help?

    Geralt launches himself at the man, bashing his lute over the top of his head. Behind him, Lambert lets out a triumphant whoop as he and Eskel throw themselves into the group of drunks who’d surrounded Jaskier, who’d dared to treat him with such cruelty.

    “Serves them right,” Lambert sneers when the brawl is over, the group of drunks laying on the ground, groaning in pain. “Fucking arseholes.”

    Eskel nods in agreement, and Geralt bares his teeth in a satisfied grin. “Damn right.”

    Or: Reverse!AU but Geralt, Eskel, and Lambert are all bards in a band together, and they go feral when someone insults their witcher.

    I've made it my life's pursuit to collect and share stories through song.

    I think it's only fair if you hear my own story too.

    Summary

    For as long as Jaskier could remember, his mom called him her little songbird. He wasn't sure what he had done to first earn the moniker, but it did suit him. It became even more apt when he was fourteen, and sprouted wings. He had to keep them hidden, his mother told him; and Jaskier managed to do so, until he couldn't anymore.

    _

    Soft wing-fic, written as a gift, where wings + geraskier + Ciri/family fluff, was requested. Includes an extra pwp chapter because why not.

    Summary

    There isn't much Jaskier can say. Geralt is, simply, one of the most fascinating people he's ever met. The bard is sweet, gentle with his words yet rough with his actions. The crowd loves him every time, especially the ladies. He sings of heroics and heartbreak, of faraway lands and monsters, the greatest love stories and broken homes. He does all that while having great hair and the most beautiful face Jaskier has ever seen.

    Summary

    “Here, let me,” Geralt murmurs, prying Jaskier’s hands away from the straps of his armour. Careful to avoid jostling Jaskier’s wound, Geralt unbuckles Jaskier’s armour with gentle hands, exposing his body bit by bit.

    “Into the bath,” Geralt orders once Jaskier’s armour is fully off. He lets his gaze roam over the lines of Jaskier’s bare body, familiar from the past few years he’s spent exploring and relearning it, lets his gaze roam over strong shoulders and scarred skin as Jaskier steps into the bath, settling down into the warm, soapy water.

    The tension leaks from Jaskier’s shoulders as Geralt brushes his fingers through his hair, carefully working through the tangles, and Jaskier sinks into his touch, leaning back with a low, contented sigh.

    Written for Witchertober Day 12: Baths, featuring Reverse AU where Geralt helps bathe Jaskier after a hunt.

    Summary

    “Telma? What’s with the bard?”

    She studied him for a moment, hands going to her hips before answering. “Not much to say, really. The boy came in one night and paid for a room. Seems to have nowhere else to go, the poor thing. He’s been playing songs for tips every night, too. Brings in more costumers, so I really can’t complain. You should stay for a while. The sun’s setting and he usually starts up around dusk.”

    Summary

    "'For a woman who spends most of her time listening to other people talk,' he said, 'you have a special talent for always saying the right thing.'"

    The song has ended . . . except for one important part.

    After years of suffering as a slave, and after years of escaping from her changeable cousin the Prince, Serva has finally found her peace, it seems. She is safe now, in all the ways she sought to be safe.

    But certain mysteries have yet be solved. The chief mystery is herself.

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.

    Summary

    I’ll sing for you, Geralt had once told him, eyes earnest and soft. Jaskier can’t sing anymore, can't touch anyone’s heart with lilting songs - but Geralt has music in his soul now, shaped by the joy and vibrancy of Oxenfurt.

    Jaskier has lost his music. He hasn't dared to bring up his past memories of Oxenfurt, but with Geralt, maybe Jaskier can regain some part of himself. Oxenfurt brought Geralt back to him, after all.

    Written for Witchertober Day 2: Oxenfurt, featuring a small snippet from the lives of Reverse!Geralt and Jaskier.

    Summary

    Being a dragon slayer is certainly a lonely and dangerous job, but someone has to do it, and Shouta Aizawa is that someone. He is a member of the Aizawa clan, after all. The job was supposed to be routine, just another dragon to kill to protect a nearby village, but the slayer's life changes forever when he meets Hizashi Yamada, a bard cursed to turn into a dragon whenever the sun rises. Really, there's only one glaring issue: Aizawa can't stand bards.

    Hizashi doesn't deserve this curse - at least he thinks he doesn't. How's he supposed to live out a normal life of playing music and seducing women when he has horns and a tail? And that's only during the night! Nevertheless, he's survived with this curse for three years now, but his time's running out. Mating season is fast approaching and if he isn't cured by spring, he'll be completely consumed by the curse. His only hope is Shouta Aizawa, the same man who has promised to destroy him should they fail. Can the two really work together and find the cure when they can't even get along, or is Hizashi doomed to succumb to the dragon's curse?

    Summary

    "It would have taken a more imaginative singer than I to envision walking up to a man like this and introducing ourselves. In silent agreement, we turned and fled through the first open door."

    In the north lies separation and snow and far too many revelations.

    Serva has lived her life as a slave, a princess in name only. Because she is the bastard daughter of the King of Daxis, her cousin the heir seeks to capture her.

    None of this has prepared her for the moment when she must enter the Emorian palace and introduce herself to the ruler of an empire. Accompanied by a escort who is even shyer than she is, Serva must somehow find the courage to face the Chara and beg refuge from him.

    Then she must find the courage to face herself.

    Summary

    "He's a bard. I'm his servant. There's no reason to arrest us."

    "The Prince wants you," declared the sublieutenant.

    The best way to hide may be in plain sight. Or perhaps not.

    In order to reach refuge in the north, Serva must travel through a land controlled by the Prince of Daxis, who has already risked war in order to capture her. Outside Daxis, Serva may be able to claim the title of daughter of the King of Daxis, but here in Daxis she is merely an escaped slave, in danger from her cousin the heir.

    Her escort is untested, while her own knowledge of Daxion geography is slight. Then matters worsen when the Prince extends his reach to catch them on the very border of their crossing. . . .

    Boilerplate warning for all my stories.
