    Summary

    for years, all there is, is the gentle, painful squeeze of the roots around her lungs—almost unbearable during the winter season when she returns to kaer morhen, but manageable. it hurts, laying next to geralt on a pile of furs in front of the fire in her room, unable to ask for more than what she’s been given. what other choice does she have, though? the winter season always brings with it the gentle touch of an almost-lover and she knows that’s all she can ask for.

    eskel coughs up the first pale, delicate peach blossoms on the path, in the spring—

    Summary

    Jaskier grumbles, “You’re incorrigible.”

    “Can you blame me, when I have a mate as pretty as you?” Eskel teases. It’s hard for him to be so vocal, sometimes… but the sweet little blush that blooms on Jaskier’s cheeks is well worth the bit of shyness he needs to overcome.

    The words are tumbling out of Jaskier’s mouth before he has a chance to check them properly, “You’re beautiful, too.” Eskel pulls a hard stop, blinking at him rapidly. “What? You can compliment me, but I cannot do the same for you? That hardly seems fair.”

    “It’s not… I mean, you don’t have to… what?” Eskel looks like he’s been struck across the face, which is more than a bit not good.

    Summary

    Eskel takes two magicians on a date to the local petting zoo. Two very attractive magicians.

    It all feels like a good idea until he remembers just how much he wants to impress them. However, before he can talk himself out of it, Jaskier and Geralt appear. How is Eskel meant to survive a whole date with Jaskier's flirting? How is he meant to respond to Geralt's wanting glances?

    And-- the most important question-- is it actually possible that these two men could like him back?

    (spoiler alert: yes)

    Summary

    It’s almost nine o’clock in the morning by the time Eskel slides into bed behind Jaskier, a heavily inked arm slinking around his midsection as a head of soft, loose honey-brown curls settles itself in-between his shoulder blades. It’s not unusual for him to come in around this time; in fact, he’s actually home a little earlier than usual. Geralt must’ve allowed him to take an early night.

    It is unusual for him to saddle up to Jaskier like this, though. At least, it has been, over the course of the last several weeks.

    Summary

    Philia — Affectionate Love. Philia is love without romantic attraction and occurs between friends or family members. It occurs when both people share the same values and respect each other — it's commonly referred to as “brotherly love.”

    Lilith leads a life and it's a very simple one: bake and get baked. She's seen dozens of witchers, and she can't say she's impressed with them. She doesn't expect this witcher to change that, but she might just find an expected acquaintance in this Eskel character...maybe even a lifelong friend.

    Summary

    Eskel hadn’t intended to go back to Kaer Morhen; without Vesemir, there’s nothing and no one to return to. Kaer Morhen is a ruin in truth now, and without anyone to patch it up after the battle, the keep had only fallen further into disrepair. But Eskel had promised Geralt he’d go back, and dependable, reliable Eskel never breaks his promises. So when autumn came, he loaded Scorpion’s saddlebags with the supplies he’d need for the winter, and made the grueling trek up the Killer.

    No one was there when he arrived, and after one week, two — no, three weeks — he was forced to admit that no one else was coming.
     
    After the Wild Hunt is defeated, Geralt convinces Eskel to go back to Kaer Morhen for the winter. Eskel agrees, but Geralt never makes it up the Blue Mountains, leaving Eskel alone and abandoned in a castle full of ghosts.

    Summary

    His stomach makes itself known when Eskel catches a whiff of roast chicken as one of the guests steps outside with their plate of food. Eskel is quick to cover his middle with his hand, as if the action alone could muffle his body’s natural response to hunger. Eskel can’t remember the last time he ate.

    Eskel could certainly do with losing a couple of pounds anyway.

    Summary

    When Ciri accidentally transports Eskel somewhere far from Kaer Morhen and he has no idea how to find his way home, he does what he does best: take a contract on a monster. Little does he know that the monster isn't a monster at all, and surprisingly, he finds someone in that far-off land he never expected to find there.

    Summary

    Humans have the power to make the year on the path a horror movie for one scarred witcher. And when he manages to escape their sadism, he has to come to terms with longterm injuries, and more importantly: his own mind.
    And his brothers have to come to terms with being unable to turn back time and fix it.

    Honestly, this is just an excuse to make Eskel suffer. And therefore gifted to the account on here that inspired me to let Eskel become the victim of extensive suffering.

    Summary

    When he left the Royal Navy following an incident that left his face scarred for the world to see, Eskel thought he knew exactly who he was and what he deserved. Oil rig work paid well enough, no one asked awkward questions, and the two people he'd learnt to trust came with him, as both friends and lovers.

    When the live music act in a bar offers to blow him in a seedy underpass, Eskel doesn't know what to think... which becomes sort of a pattern with the blue-eyed singer who says his name is Julian.

    Summary

    Lambert loves taking every kind of picture. He takes snapshots of his boyfriends posing for him, whether they’re trying to be funny or a bit more...sensual. Either way, Lambert treasures them, but his favourite kind of photo just so happens to be the kind his lovers hate the most.

    Summary

    “I want you to teach me how to paint my face.”

    Eskel looks up from his book, raising an eyebrow at Lambert’s sudden request. He’s barely seen the youngest witcher these past few days, almost as if Lambert has actively been avoiding him all this time. Eskel notices the constipated look on Lambert’s face, the one he usually gets when he needs something, but doesn't want or doesn’t know how to ask for it. 

    “Good morning, Lambert,” Eskel counters sarcastically, returning his attention to the bestiary in his lap, “I'm doing well, thanks. What about you?”

    Summary

    Eskel, by virtue of the Law of Surprise, has gotten himself entangled in a Peace Treaty that will require him to marry a foreign princess or let the Northern Kingdoms be invaded by a force unrivaled from the other side of the Skelligan Isles. So far, the only person mad enough to think things won't end in disaster is Geralt's friend Dandelion, who insists he's coming to the wedding because he's related to her.

    Summary

    Philippa Eilhart hadn’t said much when she’d ambushed Geralt this morning upon his arrival at the farm. Geralt had known, of course, that she didn’t have very fond feelings for him, but he hadn’t expected her to seek him out just to take revenge. The tendrils of her magical compulsion had stopped his attack effortlessly, and left him pliant to her will, his body as easily controlled as a puppet’s. She’d grinned delightedly as she petted a hand down the side of his face and said, “Let’s see how you like having your plans spoiled, shall we?”
