    Summary

    OP Summary: Ciri likes to imagine that every time it snows, her grandparents are saying we still love you, we’re glad they’re there to love you.

    So Ciri likes the snow; she feels loved when it snows.

    She looks around her now, at all of her favorite people all in one place, and it’s cold outside, so cold, but she feels a thread of warmth start to curl in her stomach and slowly branch out through her.

    Or: The snow falls, her friends and family are all together and all happy, and Ciri contemplates love. (A Bookshop AU fic)

    Summary

    Witchers feel emotions, Renfri wasn't a monster, Roach is notably chill, Geralt prefers nonhuman company and lies a lot, Jaskier is generally good at people but is happy to ignore what they say, Yennefer's life is abuse piled atop abuse with a sprinkle of ethnic cleansing and a complete lack of choice, Istredd's life likely wasn't much better, Tissaia does not know what she's doing, Triss is lying about being assigned to cure the princess but is afraid to admit a personal investment, Jaskier is surprisingly tolerant of Geralt getting him on Calanthe's shitlist, Kalis was in a bad situation and didn't rise above it, it really shouldn't surprise people Yennefer gets weird about having a kid, rogue mages are afraid of the Brotherhood but it seems to be a paper tiger, Jaskier took being dumped by the countess really hard but despite being drunk and having his own problems he's concerned for Geralt and wants to help him, Geralt was fine with having sex with Yennefer but concerned she had some other plot. There is so much going on with Yennefer in Bottled Appetites, and it has virtually no overlap with what fandom thinks was going on.

    Ch24: Yennefer doesn't believe anyone cares about her or could possibly care about her.

    Summary

    OP Summary from NoRationalThoughtRequired: It makes a certain kind of poetic sense, having a musician--who specializes in taking you somewhere else with his songs while you’re stuck here, in the present--playing outside of a bookshop--which specializes in selling pages bound together by the hundreds that transport you to other places, other times. This young man, this Jaskier, he’s bright, he’s cheerful, he’ll draw the eye, you won’t be able to be within a hundred feet of him and not be curious, and if there are curious people standing right by a shop of curious books and other curiosities, well, the idea makes a certain kind of business sense, too.

    Geralt gives a nod, short, sharp. “Just don’t block the door. And don’t make me regret this.”

    Jaskier claps his hands together and squeals in delight. “No, no, I won’t, I promise. You won’t! You won’t regret this.”

    Or: Bookshop owner Geralt inexplicably, in what must be a fit of temporary madness induced by the early hour and not enough caffeine, allows musician Jaskier to play outside his shop. Somewhere along the way, he starts to fall in love.

    Summary

    This is the story of how the mighty and gracious King Thranduil of the Woodland Realm (plus a gaggle of his most trusted guards) landed in a world tat decidedly was not part of Arda.
    Exhibit Nr. 1: the silvans couldn't walk through trees anymore.
    Exhibit Nr. 2: AN ELFLING?!

    In which elves go bonkers over children and Ciri and Dara are very much adoptable.

    Summary

    Lord Lettenhove steps closer. He tilts Dara’s head down and combs through his hair, probably looking for lice. He tugs at his ears, making Dara yelp. Then he forces Dara’s mouth open and examines his teeth. Lord Lettenhove nods to himself. “And the rest?”

    After parting ways with Ciri, Dara is captured by humans and turned into a bride-slave. Meanwhile Jaskier is in the market for a little elven plaything to keep him company at Lettenhove.

    Summary

    Picking his daughter up after his date wasn’t exactly what Geralt had in mind when he’d planned his evening. Finding out that the little girl he’d raised was cut off at the bar because she was far too stoned and couldn’t remember which friends she’d come in with was another unexpected turn of events. Actually, scratch that, finding out his 16-year-old daughter had a fake ID was the pinnacle of the night’s surprises. 

    Or so he thought.

    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". (05/01/2021)
    Chapter 7: Dara and Jaskier meet Lambert and learn about mutual friends. (15/09/2021)

    Summary

    OP Summary: “Hmm.” Ciri recognizes a hint of approval in his voice. “Are all your professors this attractive?”

    Her mouth falls open instantly, laughter tugging at the corners of her mouth. “What?”

    “Well, you heard me, he’s stunning,” Geralt deadpans. “Or, ‘a snack’, as I suppose your generation would say. You wouldn’t happen to know if he likes men, would you?” He says it as a joke, but Ciri smirks.

    -

    Or: Geralt starts crushing on Ciri's art teacher during her online classes. Ciri takes the opportunity and runs with it.

    Summary

    The problem is firstly that lying to his mum got him a boyfriend and secondly that Jaskier is besotted with said boyfriend. So, in his love-addled mind, he concludes that lying to his mum again is a splendid idea – it may as well get him a husband.

    “If all goes well, the wedding should be next year.”

    At least, it better be. Jaskier and Geralt are going to the coast tomorrow.

    Or

    Jaskier lies to his family about being engaged to Geralt for the second time... and there are way too many surprises involved.

    Summary

    Upon his 16th Birthday, Dara is gifted a horse, his father’s sword and a letter from his mother.

    Once upon a time, in land not so far away, dignitaries came from all over the continent to celebrate the birth of Dara aep Idas, Prince of Dol Blathanna. Mere weeks later, the kingdom falls under a great curse and the young Prince is spirited away to be raised safely. Upon this 16th Birthday, his guardians tell him he has a quest to fulfil, a curse to break, and a homeland to return to.

    It certainly brought clarity as to why he had been raised by 3 mages in the woods - three mages who have tests of their own for him to pass before he must face the dragon which guards Dol Blathanna’s gates…

    *

    Mettle (noun) - a person's ability to cope well with difficulties or to face a demanding situation in a spirited and resilient way.

    Summary

    Geralt and Jaskier encounter an unfamiliar creature who decides to help Geralt learn an important lesson. Why this results in Jaskier getting shrunk until he is only six inches tall, no one seems to have any idea. Can Geralt, along with his brothers-in-arms, Child Surprise, and two powerful sorceress friends fix it? Gods only know, but it'll be funny and tragic along the way to finding out.

    Note: Title is a reference to the quote: "Come live in my heart, and pay no rent." - Samuel Lover
