    Summary

    When Jaskier saves a farmer from plunging to his death, the grateful man offers him the Law of Surprise as a reward. Jaskier hopes for a newborn kitten or maybe a handful of eggs out of the deal, but they arrive at the man’s farm to learn that his wife has brought an injured witcher home to heal…and Jaskier now has a new husband. If only said extremely good looking husband weren’t Geralt of Rivia, the same witcher who left Jaskier in the woods outside Posada a decade before.

    Geralt has already walked away from destiny once in Cintra and he intends to do it again. But every time he leaves Jaskier behind, something goes wrong. It might be destiny, it might be bad luck. Either way, he intends to find a way out of it. If only the bard weren't starting to grow on him.

    Summary

    “Jeez, darling, you look horrible.”
    Geralt opens one eye and regards the man in front of him. He wears a dark red double-breasted coat and a giant black beanie with a couple of chestnut brown curls sticking out. A scarf covers part of his face so Geralt can only see his eyes and nose. The stranger crouches down, unfazed by Geralt’s lack of response and holds his hand out for Roach to inspect.

    In which Geralt is homeless, Jaskier is looking for a muse and everybody else plays matchmaker.

    Summary

    The following character depictions are cherry picked and taped together from all of the aspects of every medium that spoke to me, like a patchwork quilt of violence and unfiltered adoration, but I’ve only seen the N version, read one short story featuring best girl, and played five minutes of Game 3, in English, and five more in polish lol. This world of prose is made of chaos and wiki searches, but I don’t mind, and I'm sorry if you’re bored, but I’m boring and like daily life things even if I’m not very good at them, and people tend to wander around without a mission in my stories. whoops. Welcome to the taiga of free wandering imagination. Good day.

    Summary

    It was in the silence his ghosts were always their loudest, their most dangerous; in stillness their most unavoidable.

    So Jaskier the bard sang his songs and filled the spaces. He hummed shanties long into the night, his fingers chasing up and down the strings of his lute like he had once chased his brothers and sisters up and down the rigging of their ships.

    Now he'd finally found a mentor who could teach him the final lessons he needed to become a full Witcher. So what if he seems strangely overprotective? They are the last of their schools, and Geralt allows Jaskier to walk his Path alongside him. Wolf and Crane, alone together.

    Too bad Geralt didn't realize what this strange human-seeming bard was actually asking of him.

    Summary

    “You’re meant to be the classically educated one out of the two of us,” he huffed, “I missed you so much this winter, when we met back up this spring and you kissed me- I can’t stop thinking about it. I knew how I- I know how I feel about you, but now I know what it’s like to kiss you. And I think knowing what it’s like and never being able to do it again is worse than not knowing at all. Sorry,” he finished with a slow exhale and a vulnerable look to him.

    Jaskier kisses Geralt without thinking and tries to play it off like it's a traditional greeting in Lettenhove.

    Summary

    "This is my child," says Jaskier, with an entirely straight face, hand on Ciri's shoulder.

    "And that...is..."

    "My beautiful lover," says Jaskier, earnestly, "who I will soon make an honest woman out of."

    He can hear Yennefer grinding her teeth.

    Or, post episode 6, Jaskier finds his tenure at Oxenfurt rudely interrupted by a Child Surprise and a witch, and becomes a family man. Shenanigans ensue.

    Summary

    Spending more than twenty minutes at the summit was dangerous; there wasn’t enough oxygen for the human body to survive at that altitude. No matter how amazing the summit was and how badly they all wanted to stay, they couldn’t.

    Jaskier waved back at Eist as he clipped into the rope, ready to make his descent. The older man had decided to stay near the end of the group, saying he wanted to spend as much time on top of the world as he could.

    None of them saw the clouds moving in.

    Summary

    It wasn't the life Jaskier thought he would have, deep in the mountains, kept, bred, and by the whole pack too, and every Witcher from other schools they want him to welcome, an Omega life from another time which would have horrified younger him. But from the moment he bent over the first time for Geralt, it was almost fated.

    Summary

    But Essi didn't need him to keep her under his wing anymore.

    She had grown. Made mistakes. Learned. Experienced. Some of it he had witnessed, some heard about, some laughed at. Sometimes held her tightly until her tears had dried.

    She was the little sister he hadn't had before.

    Summary

    Jaskier works in the Kaer Morhen stables and pines for Eskel. There is a masquerade approaching where Eskel will choose a spouse. Jaskier knows he cannot attend as a guest and would never be accepted as an appropriate match for the witcher. But then he is faced with an unexpected opportunity. One lovely night. One dance. That’s not too much to ask, right?

    ----
    Eskel pushed open the door of the stable and at the sight of his dark hair and scarred face, the stableboy felt as though someone had released a thousand butterflies into his gut. A stupid, involuntary grin spread on his face.

    You see, the stableboy loved Eskel. As far as he was concerned, Eskel was more beautiful than anything else in Kaer Morhen. He was more lovely than the groves of pines surrounding the keep. He was more breathtaking than the view from the eastern balcony at sunset.

    He was patient. Kind. Funny. Easy going. When Eskel was around, life felt softer. Safer. Or maybe Jaskier was just better able to bear its hard edges in Eskel’s calming, competent presence.

    Summary

    “So, to clarify, you are officially done with both the witcher and Valdo?” asks Piotr, who has always been a bit short on tact, in Valdo’s opinion.

    “Officially done,” Jaskier confirms.

    “Shit.” Piotr retrieves his coin purse and passes a not insignificant amount to Marcel, who takes them smugly.

    “What was that?” Jaskier asks and Valdo cringes at the coming explanation.

    “We, uhm, well, we kind of had a bet going,” Priss explains as everyone else at the table also hands a few coins to Marcel.

    “I truly hope it was unrelated to the previous topic!” Jaskier says, offense bleeding into his voice.

    There’s an awkward moment at the table until Essi says, “Sorry, Jaskier. It’s been years. You’ve been bouncing between Valdo and your witcher for a long time. It was the most exciting topic for a few years.”

    “You all bet on my love life!?"
