    Summary

    "Other than cats, Dragons are the only creature that is known to absorb magical energy directly from their environment,” Villentretenmerth says.

    “Cats.” Jaskier’s question comes out flat. Villentretenmerth nods, sagely.

    “Cats,” he says. “Nobody knows what they do with it.” Jaskier feels a headache coming on.

    Summary

     Geralt could hear the other heartbeat in Jaskier’s sleep-laden body. It pulsated twice as fast as Jaskier’s heartbeat, in his belly. That belly was not as flat as it used to be. That belly did not have the necessary organs for a second heartbeat to exist in it.
     But Geralt could hear it, like distant thunder rolling across a black sky, heralding a lightning storm headed straight for them.
     A heartbeat signified life. A heartbeat was the sound of a muscular organ pounding in the chest of a living entity, pumping blood through a body to keep it alive, to aid in its growth.
     Jaskier’s heartbeat was a sound that comforted Geralt. It was a sound that staved off the screams of monsters and people he’d killed with his knives, his swords, his bare hands, from his conscious mind. A sound that lulled him into rare deep sleep, while he lied next to Jaskier and listened to its stable rhythm echoing from that hirsute, lean chest.
     There was nothing comforting about this other heartbeat.

    ______________________________________

    When Geralt catches the attention of an evil, sadistic sorcerer who wants to hurt the witcher, Jaskier pays the heavy price for it.

    Summary

    “Nilfgaard,” Jaskier said finally after what felt like an eternity. “Nilfgaard is going to start a war,” he said, the meaning of Borch’s words slowly becoming more and more clear in his mind. “They’re going to head for Cintra.”

    The dragon frowned. “Why would that affect you?”

    “There is someone there who has become very precious to me and whose fate also happens to be tied to the witcher. If she’s in danger… then so will he,” Jaskier said as he stood up, the restless energy trying to suffocate him. “You said something about time… time is slipping… I am running out of time - but to do what?” He rounded on the Dragon, his eyes wild. “What did you see? What do I need to do?”
    ----

    OR
    It may have taken him 20 years, but Jaskier knows where he is not wanted. Now, armed with Borch's prophecy, Jaskier is faced with a choice; either walk away entirely and continue living his placid human life or return home, shed the human façade, retake his duties, protect Cirilla and likely run into the Wticher whose one request was for Jaskier to never cross his path again.

    He knows what the right choice is. What he doesn't know, however, is how much of him will be left by the time the dust settles.

    Summary

    The noble family Jaskier was raised with always felt odd to him. He never fit in nor did he truly love his parents as all the other kids had. He loved music and his dreams far more as they tugged at his soul in a way his mother could never compare to. Dreams filled with music and the great vast sky would fill him with contentment until he began his own adventure.

    It has been years since Jaskier had to ponder on the life of Julien Alfred Pankratz but when his, no not his, Witcher decides they shall no longer travel together. He is questioning his heritage once more.

    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

    The dragon hunt is over and it didn’t end anywhere near how anybody could possibly have expected, but at least Jaskier’s still by his side even if Borch is giving Geralt cryptic warnings that make him scared to let Jaskier out of his sight.

    He’s just about to write Borch’s warnings off as a worried imagination when Jaskier starts behaving strangely.

    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

    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

    Two years have passed since the festival in Vizima, and Jaskier has found a better balance with Geralt. But an impromptu trip up a mountain opens up the chasm between them even farther, leaving Jaskier alone with no lute and no Witcher. He doesn't feel he has anywhere to go and he refuses to risk suffering the loss of anymore loved ones. So he hides in Ard Carraigh and abandons all remnants of the new life he'd started. Destiny, however, will not be thwarted so easily and he reluctantly returns to try again. But shortly after returning to the Wood, he's drawn back into a conflict in Cintra he thought had passed him by.

    Takes place after 'Fesitval Song'.

    Summary

    The love story of Hades and Persephone is the stuff of legend. A beautiful goddess that represented everything good and right in the world kidnapped from a field by a dark god who had fallen in love with her instantly. They say the dark god whisked her away on his chariot to the Underworld where he forced her to marry him and live out the rest of her days in the dark and dreary realm.

    Yes, the love story of Hades and Persephone is certainly a legendary one. Legends, however, tend to stray rather far from the truth, though they always carry a kernel of it. In actuality, Persephone wonders often where on earth the mortals got the idea that he was a woman, and if you called him ‘everything good and right in the world’ he’d probably either laugh at you or punch you in the face. He was not kidnapped (though his mother would have you believe otherwise), nor was he forced to marry his wonderful husband.

    ***

    In which Jaskier is Persephone but Geralt is not Hades, and everything and nothing changes.

    Summary

    Hesitantly he says, “You realize that I… can’t die?”

    With speed he doesn’t expect she has him slammed into the ground, pinned with a foot on his stomach.

    Téa leans down, “Just because you will come back does not mean you have to. And Saskia should not see you hurt.”

    Summary

    After getting his heart broken on a wild goose chase of a dragon hunt, Jaskier - a dragon himself - never got the chance to tell his Witcher the truth. Honestly, he's glad because now he can disappear into the clouds and grant Geralt's stupid fucking blessing.

    Nilfgaard has other ideas. And like all of Jaskier's shittiest life events, those ideas end up including Yennefer of Vengerberg.

    Summary

    Geralt falls in love with Jaskier, but he's afraid of being rejected by him because of his non human attributes. So he tries to hide them, only he's not being too successful at it and when that happens Jaskier doesn't look at him any differently. It's a slow process of him realizing his bard won't turn him away and that he in fact, is very much loved back.
