    Summary

    Eskel is rarely—if ever—truly angry. He is frequently, fondly, exasperated—with Jaskier, with their pretty little baby (their sweet little angel, the light of Eskel’s life, who wasn’t his by blood but was his in every way that actually counted; their precious little girl, whom Geralt no longer had any viable claim to, whom he’d abandoned on the mountain alongside Jaskier, and yet…), with his brothers. But this… this is so far beyond anger, the word doesn’t even begin to touch on the maelstrom of emotions swirling inside of the alpha. Calling it anger seems to cheapen it, in a way… but it’s the only word Jaskier knows that even begins to touch on all of this.

    He is angry at Geralt… at Jaskier… and at himself. And the sheer acidic stench of it is enough to make Jaskier feel like he can’t breathe.

    Gods, this is all Jaskier’s fault.

    --

    Jaskier loves two alphas. And, by the end of winter, he may end up losing them both.

    Summary

    As an agent for the Redanian Secret Service, codename Wolf, Geralt has been fine without a handler for months; much to his disgust he’s now been saddled with an irritating new partner who just won’t keep quiet.

    With Eskel horribly maimed, and Geralt’s own history, there’s no way he’s going to let a handler worm their way back into his heart — it’s just not safe. He won’t get attached, and he definitely won’t meet Bard, the man whose voice fills his ears every hour of the day.

    Summary

    “You’re Scoia’tael?” the Wolf asks. No doubt he recognises Iorveth from the various posters that the dh’oine have put out with what they consider a good depiction of his likeness. Iorveth finds himself inclined to disagree, but the red cloth and missing eye are a sure giveaway either way, even if someone has never seen him in person.

    “Iorveth,” he says, for completeness’ sake. It isn’t like the witcher is in any state to run into the next town to denounce him.

    “Eskel.” The witcher inclines his head in a polite nod. “Pleased to make your acquaintance, Iorveth.”

    Iorveth barks out a laugh at the words, handing him a mug of tea to drink. “It has been a long time indeed since someone was pleased to meet me."
    *

    Iorveth finds a witcher on the brink of death in the forest and decides to nurse him back to health.

    Summary

    Maybe it was the potions, or the mix, or the toxicity. Whatever the accident, Jaskier knows Eskel's hurting and he's going to make it better.

    My take on the "whoops, bad potion mix makes a Witcher feral and horny and Jaskier fixes it".

    Summary

    Eskel has never, ever broken a sweat while playing cards.
    He stares at his sorry hand, his classic deck a little bit too classic for a game with a card shark, but he’s got no other option, he must play, for there’s a great deal at stake and – well. He’s not here on his own behalf, after all.
    “So, witcher. Gonna pass your turn or what?”
    Eskel draws in a sharp breath, the air in the shady gambling hall stale and filled with the acrid scent of tallow coming from the half-burnt candles looked after by an elven maiden that’s a little too undressed for the rigid temperatures of Novigrad during early spring. But, like many others, she mustn’t be here on her own volition too.
    “No.”
    He plays a relatively rare card. His opponent smirks. Again, Eskel wonders why on earth as he deliberately put himself in such a situation, but the answer is so painfully simple he would slap himself for the big, sentimental goof he is.
    Geralt.

    Summary

    Life has never been easy as a witcher. That much was true before Eskel became one, and the decades haven’t changed that fact one bit. But the winters are what make it all worth it.
    Because during the winters, he gets to see Geralt again.

    But this year, Geralt's brought an unexpected visitor.

    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

    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

    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?”

    Summary

    Eskel had the strange feeling that everything was going to change when he passed through Dol Blathanna one year on his way back to Kaer Morhen for winter. He had been passing through a town and, instead of running away from him, someone had exclaimed “You’re a Witcher,” and proceeded to sing at him.

    He just hadn't realised how much of an impact it would have on him.

    Summary

    “Where’s Eskel?” Ciri asks Geralt, frowning a little.

    “He went out to do more hunting and gather some potion ingredients. Should be back any moment,” Geralt reassures her.

    “Ah. Good.” She hesitates a little before deciding to forge right ahead with her next question. She’s asked everyone else in the keep, of course she’ll have to ask Geralt, too. “About his scars…”
    *

    Ciri wants to know where Eskel's scars came from, so she decides to ask everyone at the keep about them. Except, they all seem to have different stories...

    I wrote this for Witcher Whump Week 2020 so you may have already read it. But I wanted it to have a cover and stand on its own because I really love this ficlet.
