    Summary

    The problem wasn’t really the talking. Geralt had heard humans talking constantly every time he’d been within a quarter-mile of civilization his entire adult life. No, it wasn't the talking at all. The trouble with Jaskier was that he cared about the answers.

    In which Geralt learns to face himself, his relationships, and his place in a human-dominated world. Taking place in the gap between the meeting in Posada and the banquet in Cintra, this story explores growth, trauma recovery, mental health, friendship, family, and societal bigotry.

    Summary

    It’s a pain in the ass, being cursed.

    Other poets speak reverently of soulmarks, weaving tales about lovers from centuries past crossing oceans to find each other, destiny bound.

    Other poets are fucking hacks.

    The problem is, soulmarks are so rare these days that poets have gotten away with making up all kinds of wivestales about those who bear them.

    (In which Jaskier is cockblocked by his own soulmark, until he isn't)

    Summary

    Witchers feel emotions, Renfri wasn't a monster, Roach is 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, 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 his own problems he's concerned for Geralt, Geralt was fine with having sex with Yennefer but concerned she had some other plot. Yennefer doesn't believe anyone cares about her or could possibly care about her.

    Ch25: Geralt lives in a world where people so constantly do things he considers monstrous he's given up on even mentioning it to them, and this episode takes place in the shadow of that mental weight.

    Summary

    “You said,” Yennefer repeated slowly, “the girl in the woods was my destiny.”

    Renfri shrugged, a curl falling over her naked shoulder. “I’m a girl,” she said, “and I’m in the woods.”

    "Even if you fancy yourself a soothsayer, you should know that destiny has no hold on me," Yennefer said, her eyes falling to sweep of Renfri’s shoulder blades, thinking, unbidden, of the wings of a bird. "I won’t go chasing your nocturnal fables.”

    "What would you do?" Renfri laughed, "cut down the stars that dare defy you?"

    Summary

    Rusalkas trugen die Gestalt wunderschöner, wohlgeformter Frauen, deren Körper nur von ihrem glänzend schwarzen Haupthaar verdeckt wurden. Sie verführten Angler und Wanderer, um sie im eisigen Wasser zu ertränken oder so lange mit ihnen zu tanzen, bis ihre Kräfte nachgaben. So anziehend diese Monster auf ein menschliches Auge wirken mochten – der Hexer nahm den verzerrten, kreischenden Unterton ihrer Stimmen wahr. Er wusste, dass man sie an dem Geruch von Algen und Blut in ihrem Haar und an den leeren, glasigen Augen erkannte.

    Summary

    Basically a short outlook of what I think happened to Geralt after he left Blaviken at the end of the first episode.

    Excerpt: The life of a Witcher was one of darkness, of monsters, of chaos and death and fighting to survive. It was a life of rejection from the very people you were charged to protect, of getting cursed at, threatened.
    It was of getting denied rooms in inns during winters, chased from brothels for fear that you would kill one of their girls.

    Summary

    "What’s wrong?”

    Geralt turns this question over in his mind. What, indeed? That he allowed this fool human to follow him in the first place? That he lulled himself into a sense of security because drowners and nekkers and harpies hadn’t managed to make off with him? That he barely put up a fight when the vulnerable, human man tagged along while Geralt stalked a fucking fiend? That if Geralt had been a fraction of a second slower, if he’d let his focus waver even the tiniest bit, Jaskier would have been impaled on the beast’s horns, would be cold and lifeless on the ground instead of sitting here beside Geralt, his brow furrowed in worry? That his touch on Geralt’s skin is rousing some feeling in Geralt’s chest, and until today Geralt didn’t even know he could feel such a thing, much less that it was somehow connected to Jaskier?

    What’s wrong, indeed?

    Summary

    "It‘s a good thing," Marilka continues, rattling on as if Geralt had made any indication that he was listening at all. "I get to see the Continent. Travel to places that aren’t just the boring old market.” She swings her feet, kicking up a bit of grass and dirt as the tip of her boot scrapes the ground. "Good-bye Blaviken — just the whole world before my eyes. As far as my feet will carry me."

    'Go away,' Geralt wants to say, but the words rest on the tip of his tongue. He can't find the strength in him to speak them out loud. Just for today, he promises himself. Leave her at the next village.

    An AU ending from Episode 1 where Marilka joins Geralt on his adventures. In which Geralt accidentally acquires a daughter (not just the one destiny gave him), Jaskier teaches him how to parent, and Marilka adopts two unqualified father figures.
