    Summary

    “...sure,” Lambert drawled, stepping close - very close - to lazily brush leather-gloved fingers across Eskel’s chest like he was flicking away a bit of fluff from his sweater. “If that’s all you want.”

    Eskel caught it with his own bare hand, covering it and giving Lambert’s hand a gentle squeeze. “And what if it’s not?” he asked, slowly lifting Lambert’s hand to his lips and placing a kiss on the warm skin on the inside of his wrist, nearly hidden between the edges of glove and sweater.

    Nearly a year after surviving the attack that left him scarred, Eskel meets someone who makes him smile again.

    Summary

    “Kaer Morhen… can’t imagine this place without Vesemir. I’ll head down the valley and find somewhere else to winter next year.”

    -

    Eskel took one last look at the crumbling fortress that so recently was home. He took his first step down the Trail with a heavy heart. So many memories, so much time, so much loss.
    A deep hum built in his chest, a melody, words clambering to break free. A glance around to make sure no one would hear, and he opened his mouth and let his pain soar.

    -

    Eskel sings on his way down the Trail after Vesemir's funeral.

    Summary

    OP Summary from neverafuckgiven:
    Geralt and Eskel have been sitting across from each other for ten minutes and they haven’t said a word to each other. They’re at their usual table in the back of Rosemary and Thyme, tucked away from the large windows; from experience, Geralt knows their food will be out any second now.
    *
    Eskel and Geralt are just trying to have lunch. They're joined by two very special guests.

    Set in my Apartment AU.

    Summary

    Soulmate-identifiers exist to make things easier unless you're Jaskier, who's equally as deep in love as he is in denial. But there's only so many excuses you can make to avoid the truth...

    aka: jaskier's soulmate is definitely a witcher, just not the one he first assumes

    Summary

    He travelled with a caravan most days, playing for them, as well as helping them care for the young and elderly before he said goodbye to them and continued on the journey north, he had maybe a day or two left before he heard whispers of a murderous witcher staying in a cave. Jaskier maybe should have stopped to ask what the witcher looked like but he just altered his Path to enter the cave that he and Eskel had camped in before.

    Summary

    After a hunt gone wrong, Eskel is forced to face the cold, hard truth: Witchers do not have feelings, but he does. Now, trapped in Kaer Morhen for the winter, Eskel must navigate his way through the season and avoid everyone's suspicions, which he quickly finds is easier said than done. At the same time, his family knows something is wrong, but they don't know how far in the problem lies.

    Or, alternatively, Eskel has severe trauma after a hunt gone wrong, but he refuses to let his family know. After all, witchers don't have feelings, right?

    Summary

    Jaskier winters at Kaer Morhen, intent on helping Eskel. It doesn't go quite to plan.

    (This won't make sense unless you've read the first two. Reading the third one just adds flavour.)

    Summary

    It's a wonderful autumn day and Geralt is gone, having left sometime in the early morning, slowly untangling his body from Eskel's embrace and creeping out of the room, perfectly silent. He left. He won't come back.

    Eskel had known the day would come, but he had counted on Geralt to tell him.

     

    Part of the series exploring the changing relationship between Eskel and Geralt from first love through the horror of the second trials and onwards; includes previous world-building but stands as independent story to be read on its own.

    Summary

    He was proud of himself when he kept his tears at bay, turning to leave the stewing Witcher in his own vices. Jaskier made it halfway down the mountain before the scratching at the back of his throat made him stop and sit for a break, taking a swing of water from the skin he carried only to be sent into a violent coughing fit.

    Jaskier fell to his knees at the side of the path, hacking and choking so hard tears filled his eyes before finally something dislodged and flew from his lips.

    Jaskier couldn't stop the psychotic laugh that bubbled out of him while tears streamed down his cheeks.
