    Summary

    Geralt was tired of being immortal and watching the world change around him while he was trying to find his place in it. He was the last witcher to grace this earth, and as honouring as it was, it didn't fill up the hollowness inside him.

    He still spent his days hunting for monsters while he worked for an organisation that kept every magical being and supernatural creature as a secret from the public eye while he tried hard to avoid his memories about a certain teasing smile and cornflower-blue eyes.

    Hundreds of years after he last saw his bard, Geralt got a new case where the only eyewitness was a young brunet, with bright eyes, clever mouth, and he called himself Jaskier.

    Geralt didn't know if he land in his personal hell, or it was just a dream come true, but he knew one thing. He was not ready to face Jaskier again and deal with his emotions at the same time.

    Summary

    Desperado, why don't you come to your senses?
    You've been out ridin' fences for so long now...
    And freedom, oh freedom, Well that's just some people talkin';
    Your prison is walkin' through this world all alone
    [Desperado - The Eagles - 1973]

    --

    Geralt is a big ol’ loner; a cowboy who travels the length and breadth of the continent with only himself and his horse for company. He needs no-one, and no-one needs him.
    That is, until he makes the mistake of helping a young man in trouble, and finds himself saddled with an annoyingly cheerful travel companion who just Does. Not. Ever. Shut. Up.
    He hates him. So much.
    Until he doesn’t.

    Summary

    Jaskier knows that as a Fae he should stay as far from Witchers as he can. But then he crosses paths with Geralt and well...Jaskier never has done what he should. How can he say no when he's faced with the swirling vortex of destiny that is the White Wolf?
    So what he has to work twice as hard to conceal his identity? So what Geralt might kill him or run him off if he finds out that Jaskier isn't a mere human bard? Jaskier's never been happier. Which means it's only a matter of time before something comes along to screw that up for him.

    Summary

    Part of Geralt’s core rails at the very thought of needing anyone, because that’s not how things are supposed to be, but it makes the matter no less true.

    He needs Jaskier. Not for his music or his social skills or, gods forbid, any sort of fighting aptitude. No, he needs him because Jaskier just...is. And it seems that Geralt can no more stop himself from needing Jaskier than he can stop the sun from rising. (He knows. He’s tried to quash the feeling time and again. He always fails.)

    Which brings him back to the present moment. Watching Jaskier play and...and wanting.

    The question is, should he let Jaskier know?

    And Geralt wonders. And thinks. About whys and hows and maybes.

    Maybe.

    Summary

    Podfic of The Path Doesn't Have Beds and Bathtubs, Jaskier by neverafuckgiven

    Author's summary:
    Jaskier, however, is a pampered child that likes to inflict those same ideals on whoever’s closest, which is always Geralt. He scowls and finishes his ale. “One room is fine.” He’s learned to pick his battles and right now his shoulder is still stinging from the injury he got earlier. One battle today was more than enough.
    *
    Geralt is too emotionally stunted to realize that Jaskier trying to pamper him is Jaskier telling him he loves him. Instead, he ends up worrying that Jaskier is going to end up missing all the fancy things like regular baths and beds and end up leaving him. Not that Geralt loves him or anything.

    Summary

    It has been only seven days since Posada and Geralt's paper-thin patience can't handle this chattering bardling following him everywhere.
    The witcher tries everything to scare him off and each time Geralt pushes Jaskier away the songbird comes back with more determination.

    Geralt stops trying after a while and accepts his fate as Jaskier's muse. This burden slowly seems to become a need and Geralt is not ready to handle his own feelings when he was denying them throughout his whole life.

    OR: How these two muppets trying hard not to fall in love.

    Summary

    Jaskier had been happy. So, so happy.

    But of course, at no point in his life could he remain so. Once again, Geralt looked at him with loathing–and worse, disappointment–and it was all Jaskier's fault. All because, for one glorious moment of weakness, he'd believed that Geralt finally returned the level of love and trust that Jaskier had always given of himself.

    More fool him.

    Summary

    Jaskier is on his way to the Bardic Festival in Vizima by himself.

    Geralt has been acting strangely since the events that occurred in Rinde and he's become distant. Despite the other Witchers' reassurances that his moodiness is fairly normal, Jaskier isn't quite convinced. On top of his worries, Jaskier is once again confronted by Valdo Marx and he comes to learn what viscous rivalry really means. An attempt to remove him from the competition turns into life threatening danger as he comes face to face with the Striga everyone seems to know about but doesn't openly discuss. Where is his Witcher when he really needs him? And will he be able to tell him how he feels when he shows up?

    Takes place after 'In Destiny's Hands.'

    Summary

    Geralt finally finds his child of surprise - or rather, she finds him - but Cirilla isn't alone, beside her is a majestic lion with familiar blue eyes

    [...] Months of searching and finally she was here, Cirilla, his child of surprise, alive - shivering slightly in his arms, but safe and sound.

    Their moment was quickly broken when Geralt heard something and hid the girl behind him, sword pointed towards the noise.

    His eyes wide, facing the second thing he heard moving around, for a moment he had forgotten that an animal was nearby and, well, it wasn't a dog... he never would have guessed what it really was.

    In front of him, majestic, with a calm expression and intense blue eyes was a lion. [...]

    Summary

    "You couldn’t have picked literally any other name, could you? Something that would sound good in a ballad about heroism and adventure maybe?”
    Geralt grunted. “No.”
    His jaw clenched. The bard had no right to demand such a thing. It was none of his business what Geralt called his horse. Roach wasn’t here to be a shining accessory to the bard’s songs. She was his companion.
    The bard skipped some steps ahead, until he was walking backwards, looking at him with an impish grin.
    “Oh…that almost sounds like it has a story behind it.” He spread his arms widely. “The great tale of why Roach is the only acceptable name for this valiant mare.”
    “There isn’t one.” None that the bard would get to hear any time soon, at least.

    or: Jaskier finds out that all of Geralt's horses are called Roach

    Summary

    Geralt walks into a tavern thinking everything will be as usual, that is until he sees Jaskier inside. Now this isn't too crazy, seeing as they tend to meet up and leave pretty regularly. It was Jaskier's new song he apparently wrote recently that things go a little off the rails. What do you mean Jaskier is in love with someone? He's only been with Geralt recently!

    Summary

    He completely ignored Jaskier’s protests and just hauled him away, through the side streets until he stopped at a little tavern. He opened the door, shoved the bard through.

    “Wait, Geralt, what-“
    “For fucks sake, please shut up for just a moment.”

    Geralt nodded at the bartender as they walked by, towards the stairs. Did he have a room here? They only just arrived this morning, how did he already have a room?

    “Geralt-“

    The Witcher growled, whirled him around and grabbed his jaw.

    “Jaskier. Shut. Up.”

    Jaskier gets talked to, Geralt gets jealous and.. well, things happen.

    Summary

    There was something ugly churning in Geralt's gut watching all those nobles flock around Jaskier. Fawning, complimenting, flirting.

    Jaskier should be thriving and preening from all the attention. Instead there was something uncomfortable and pinched in his expression, skillfully masked behind playful smiles and bright laughs.

    Geralt didn't want to contemplate why he, and only he, noticed the bard's wish to run.

    Summary

    When he took a contract to kill a kikimora, the last thing Lambert expected was to run into his brother. Scratch that, the last thing he expected was to run into Geralt and a bard, the latter of whom seems overly familiar with his brother despite Lambert never having heard of him. It's the sort of thing he'd walk away from, if Geralt wasn't hurt.

    Gods, he should've walked away.
