    Summary

    Look, it fucking - it wasn't supposed to go like this, alright?

    The contract had said it was a chort, and even though Lambert knew - he fucking knew - that humans couldn't be trusted to know a griffin from a lubberkin even if it was biting them in the ass and they had a fucking bestiary in their fucking hands…

    He'd certainly paid the price for it now though, hadn't he? All he wanted to do now was collect what he was owed and find a healer. But of course things can't even be that simple - not for him - not when some bard goes and destroys his payment in a tavern brawl. Now instead of the supplies he needed, the village has saddled him with the same bard as a guide. Things can't possibly get any worse, right?

    Right?

    (with fanart by the phenomenal Cylin!)

    Summary

    It was in the silence his ghosts were always their loudest, their most dangerous; in stillness their most unavoidable.

    So Jaskier the bard sang his songs and filled the spaces. He hummed shanties long into the night, his fingers chasing up and down the strings of his lute like he had once chased his brothers and sisters up and down the rigging of their ships.

    Now he'd finally found a mentor who could teach him the final lessons he needed to become a full Witcher. So what if he seems strangely overprotective? They are the last of their schools, and Geralt allows Jaskier to walk his Path alongside him. Wolf and Crane, alone together.

    Too bad Geralt didn't realize what this strange human-seeming bard was actually asking of him.

    Summary

    Geralt has always been a little afraid of losing control. And after what happened the last time, it's not an unreasonable worry, one which the Council shares. He's been watched since he left Kaer Morhen, but he's always been... perfect. Kept himself in control, never done anything to create a reason to come after him.
    And then he meets a girl. A girl with a grudge against a sorcerer, who asks him to give her her revenge. And he fucks it up worse than anything else in his life.
    ---
    Julian has always told himself that he doesn't mind being a Witcher. It's not like he's got another choice, after all. But when the Council asks him to take down a half-feral fugitive, he starts to think that might not be true anymore.

    Summary

    In a world where soul bonds are set in motion by plans for the future, Jaskier accidentally binds himself to Geralt on the mountain, knowing that Geralt does not return his feelings. However, this type of soulbond comes with a wrinkle - both bond members will find themselves spontaneously pregnant.

    Now, Jaskier is heading for Oxenfurt, determined to content himself with a quiet life for the sake of his child. But destiny may not let him get away that easily . . .

    Summary

    Soft bois in a random unamed forest somewhere. This is my brain rot?? college is rough. Yes im an english major.

    Excerpt: "Geralt’s hand is tracing what feels like an old pattern, one worn down by the type of love that starts wars and ends them too. But it’s new, it’s all new. So maybe it’s the kind of love that breathes color into the world, that writes stories, that grows old and dies happy. Oh, so gloriously happy."

    Summary

    Jaskier watched it all, with the same emotionless, empty gaze, moving not a single finger to help.

    He watched the horde of Ghouls part for the larger Alghoul, making way for him to issue the killing blow.

    All the while, Jaskier kept watching, motionless, as the Alghoul stalked towards the unconscious Witcher.

    His pounding, frenzied heart the only sign betraying his otherwise calm exterior.

    Summary

    There are certain domains of Chaos that even the most experienced mages do not dare touch - there is Chaos that can be controlled, compelled and channelled and Chaos that defies all efforts to do so. The Nilfgaardian Intelligence has been nudging at the borders of 'safe' chaos for decades and the line is about to get a lot more blurred.

    Add a Witcher, a Princess and a few more mages to the mix and what will you get? An interesting story at the very least - maybe even one worthy of a song...

    Summary

    Jaskier sat on that rock, confessing his love. He tried to promise he'd be better, tried to coax him into a much needed rest. But as he handed his heart over, Geralt tossed it right off that mountain. And then, Geralt made it clear that he wasn't even interested in being friends. So he left, and stumbled into Lambert, broken and grieving over Aiden's death, only days before they were supposed to meet.

    Summary

    Summary

    Five months before the mountain—the event that occurred upon it takes on an eponymous quality, after the fact, both because it makes the memory rather more poetic than it would be otherwise and also, conveniently, makes said memory easier to ignore—Jaskier killed a man. It wasn’t the first time he’d done so, as he mostly traveled alone when he wasn’t travelling with Geralt and he’d spent the early years of his adolescence on the streets of Oxenfurt besides, and every so often needs must. It was, however, the first time he’d killed a man whilst travelling with Geralt, on account of Geralt’s lovely ability to murder or maim a great number of things in a small window of time.

    Summary

    Jaskier had quickly abandoned the Path once he was out in the world. He’d chosen a name, and pursued what he truly wanted in life - and it was music, not fighting monsters, because of course it was - and he’d only deigned to act as a witcher until he gathered the not insignificant amount of coin needed to buy himself not only a glamour but the discretion of its creator, which had cost almost as much as the damn thing itself.

    If anyone who’d ever known him could see him now, he doubted they’d be too surprised.

     

    Jaskier is a witcher by nature, a bard by choice, and a general nuisance by sheer force of personality.

    Summary

    “Well, don’t beat yourself up, oh mighty witcher. I’m sure you only needed the rescue because those villains took advantage of your only weakness.” The bard adds his usual dramatic flair into the last two words.

    Geralt blinks. Something shifts in his expression. If the bard didn’t know better, he’d say the witcher is flustered.

    “Mocking me, are you?”

    Or, when Geralt gets kidnapped, it's up to Jaskier to rescue him. Some truths about a witcher's worst weakness come to light.
