    Summary

    The Winter Woods. Rumored to hide monsters of your deepest fears and that whoever enters never makes it out alive.

    So, naturally, Jaskier, being utterly smashed and utterly heartbroken over the Countess's betrayal finds it to be the perfect spot to drunkenly wail his broken heart. No one will hurt him again when he disappears into the woods.

    Forever.

    So how in the hell does he wake up in his bed the next morning alive?

    Summary

    Jaskier drops the torch and the dagger, rushing forward to fall to his knees next to Geralt. The light splutters briefly but holds, and Jaskier curses himself even as he hesitantly reaches out to try and wake Geralt. The leather armour of his shoulder is cold under Jaskier’s palm, and weirdly tacky with something; arachas venom pings in the back of his mind like a warning, and he hastily wipes his palms off on his already ruined doublet, reaching forward to cradle Geralt's face instead.

    “Geralt?” he whispers; the horrifying truth of Geralt’s stillness catches in his throat, preventing him from being any louder than that. “Geralt?”

    Or

    It’s not that he hadn’t thought it possible... but Geralt was a witcher. No one had ever mentioned that witchers could die.

    Or

    Five Times Jaskier Thought Geralt Was Dead, Plus One Time It Was Reversed

    Summary

    Drabbles and Oneshots set within and after 'Parallel', the first work in this series where Jaskier adopts Dara and trains him up in the bardic arts.

    I'd read Parallel first - this probably makes sense without but this is the spin-off.

    Chapter 1: Jaskier has a teeny-tiny freak out over his new found guardianship. Dara has a bath.
    Chapter 2: Jaskier and Dara attend a wedding and Dara finds The O N E. (07/10/20)
    Chapter 3: Jaskier and Dara practice rivalry in Cidaris. Anita Pankratz reconnects with her brother. (29/10/2020)
    Chapter 4: Jaskier gets bard-napped. (7/11/2020)
    Chapter 5: Glod and Dara rehearse a play. Jaskier's getting old. (20/11/2020)
    Chapter 6: Dara has two emotional days. Jaskier "dad's". (05/01/2020)

    Summary

    Jaskier is a genie that has been “freed” from his “bottle” which is bits and pieces of his lute. He isn’t truly free but enough to not actually care about being a genie. He's been traveling the world doing whatever. Upon meeting Geralt, he pretends to be a normal bard as he does with everyone but every now and then when Geralt wants something it just seems to be easier to get it. Sometimes when it’s a close call with a monster, he lands a lucky shot. He wouldn’t have been killed but he would have been injured, badly, and yet barely a scratch.
    Sometimes Jaskier and Geralt split paths and Geralt notices how his luck seems to better when his little strange bard is around.

    Summary

      He raised his lute's strap over his head and placed the precious instrument on the stage floor. His feet moved on their own volition towards Geralt. His hands clenched into fists at his sides. His golden, resplendent outfit seemed too small and too big for his body at the same time. He felt fire billowing up in his chest. It threatened to consume him from inside out, to burst from him and raze everything in its path to ashes.
      It was such ravenous anger. Raw anger.
      Anger was the only explanation he had for the damp searing of his eyes.
      It had absolutely nothing to do with his stupid eyes seeing Geralt stand tall and attentive, or his stupid mind believing the shine of those amber eyes was
    hope.

    Summary

    Another tavern, another town.

    A friendly wager is made, to see who can seduce a woman first: The rugged, feral wolf, or the comparatively mild and loud bard.

    When all else fails, all they have is the other's company, and lots and lots of alcohol. But is there something else? Something they'd never thought to consider before?

    Summary

    Jaskier is a shadow and he will disappear one day, either Julian will die or he’ll be forcibly called back to his heel. He can’t give Geralt hope and have it being ripped from his fingers without a word. He knows that Geralt would try to find him, would stop at nothing. But he would search for the rest of his long life because shadows aren’t real and they leave no trace when the darkness comes in.

    Summary

    When Jaskier's band, Dandelions, suddenly kicks him out, he accidentally finds himself a place in another one - Kaer Morhen, a band he'd always considered to be his rivals.
    And maybe, just maybe, they're not as bad as he'd thought. And maybe their frontman, who calls himself The White Wolf, isn't such an idiot after all...

    Summary

    Geralt, who moonlights as a vigilante known as the Witcher, comes to Novigrad to chase a serial killer who’s been eluding him for years. His new job as a reporter for The Continental Press is just a way to pay the bills until he moves on— nothing more, nothing less. He doesn’t have time for the attentions of the adorable entertainment writer, Jaskier, who keeps getting himself into trouble. He definitely doesn’t have time for his own growing feelings for Jaskier.

    A prequel to “I’m Only Human After All,” covering the three years leading up to the events of that story. Can be read as a standalone.

    Summary

    He fishes around in his pockets, comes up with a handful of coins filched from his father’s purse. They’ll never be missed. He selects one shiny copper and puts the rest back.

    It’s silly, but the discovery of the little grove feels like more than happenstance. The place vibrates with something Jaskier can’t name, feels clandestine and powerful. Like it could give him what he wants, if he’d let it.

    He balances the coin on his thumbnail, exhales through his nose, and he wishes—

    Or: Jaskier makes a wish in a strange pool in Lettenhove and then, unrelatedly, spends his life both chasing and running from his deepest desires.

    Summary

    Jaskier was all too aware of the titles he’d accumulated over the years.

    Jaskier: Greatest Bard on the continent, friend and companion to the White Wolf, Master of the Seven Liberal Arts, renowned Professor of the grand Oxenfurt Academy, considerate, heartfelt lover and, ultimately, when it came down to it, a right annoying prick.

    “Fucking bard,” the innkeeper muttered under his breath, for once far more perturbed by Jaskier’s presence than by the Witcher who stood behind him, “do you ever stop talking?”
