    Summary

    Dettlaff was suffering, resigned to his fate and sense of guilt over his deeds, but spending the rest of his time surrounded by friends didn’t seem like a bad idea…

    Avallac’h was lost, too focused on his work, on training Cirilla, lost in his own thoughts and oblivious to what mattered most, even following his student even if he thought it pointless…

    The end of summer was drawing near and, having worked hard in the fields alongside the other workers, it was Geralt’s first harvest since taking over Corvo Bianco and he’s invited his closest friends and family to celebrate.No one expected it when Ciri brought along Avallac’h, nor did they expect it when Dettlaff’s curiosity for the elven Sage to turn the vampire’s head. Or visa versa.

    Summary

    Geralt didn’t understand humans. He’d known that much for the majority of his life.

    But it was days like these that Geralt understood them least of all.

    Summary

    Witchers feel emotions, Renfri wasn't a monster, Roach is notably chill, Geralt prefers nonhuman company and lies a lot, Jaskier is generally good at people but is happy to ignore what they say, Yennefer's life is abuse piled atop abuse with a sprinkle of ethnic cleansing and a complete lack of choice, Istredd's life likely wasn't much better, Tissaia does not know what she's doing, Triss is lying about being assigned to cure the princess but is afraid to admit a personal investment, Jaskier is surprisingly tolerant of Geralt getting him on Calanthe's shitlist, Kalis was in a bad situation and didn't rise above it, it really shouldn't surprise people Yennefer gets weird about having a kid, rogue mages are afraid of the Brotherhood but it seems to be a paper tiger, Jaskier took being dumped by the countess really hard but despite being drunk and having his own problems he's concerned for Geralt and wants to help him, Geralt was fine with having sex with Yennefer but concerned she had some other plot. There is so much going on with Yennefer in Bottled Appetites, and it has virtually no overlap with what fandom thinks was going on.

    Ch24: Yennefer doesn't believe anyone cares about her or could possibly care about her.

    Summary

    "Perhaps it was his bone-deep yearning, the product of over-romanticising the fairytales he'd inhaled in the search of answers or his own pathetic wish for the magic he'd read about in the old tales to be real. Gently, Jaskier pressed his lips to the cold ones made of carefully carved stone, his eyes sliding shut as he imagined something to become of it.

    He hadn't expected to feel the statue jolt."

    --

    Medieval Antiquities Professor, Julian Pankratz- Jaskier as he insisted to go by- has spent the last few years of his career obsessing over a single statue- one with no story, no signature, and no records. All options and historical documents expended, he can't help but hope that perhaps for once, fairytale solutions are the answer.

    Summary

    Jaskier is invited to perform at a grand party for a mighty king, but things aren't as they seem.

    Or

    Jaskier is a ray of sunshine and envious kings try to put him out but Geralt ain't taking this bullshit today.

    Or

    "Leave? And let them win?" The bard asked softly, his voice showing an atypical insecurity and fragility.

    "It's not a matter of winning or losing, it's a matter of knowing when the people around you are wishing you ill and walking away from that. It's not a sign of weakness to want to protect yourself."

    Summary

    none of the Witcher training prepared him for this. there, standing in front of a crowd, looking at his brothers, friends and daughter, beside his lover and ready to sing.

     All the way there Geralt wondered if this was really worth it. Was it worth embarrassing himself in front of dozens (if not hundreds) of old philosophers, professors, masters of the arts, bards and many others? Was it worth throwing away years of Witcher reputation? But it took just one look at Jaskier, to let him know that yes, it is worth it.

     

     

    It's basically just sweet cuteness between Geralt and Jaskier singing together in a bardic concert.
    There's no violence or angst, just two cute lovers being happy with their family and friends!
    (Based of the song La Seine And I from the movie A Monster In Paris)

    Summary

    Jaskier finds a girl in the woods near Sodden Hill. Not even his charisma seems up to the task of prying any explanation from her about where the rest of her family is or how she ended up on her own, but he's sure she'll warm up to him soon.

    Yennefer wakes up naked in the wrong country with someone looming over her.

    Summary

    They're both idiots in love
    Excerpt:
    This time he whispers silently, the hand on Jaskier’s arm has now raised up. Up to the Bard’s cheek and there it rests gently.

    Softly enough that Jaskier might move away if he wishes to, but firm enough that Jaskier finds himself helplessly leaning into that warm calloused heat.

    “You fool, you love me don’t you?”

    Summary

    “Geralt?” Geralt cracks a grin, sly as Dandelion’s face drops, “No— whatever it is you’re about to do, dear friend, absolutely n— Geralt!” They’re in the air for a second, before they’re landing on the mass of tentacles with a horrid squish.

    Or, Geralt's playful and Dandelion loves him.

    Summary

    Geralt is the owner of a cozy little cafe called the Wolf Den and enjoys the daily routine of making coffees and minor small talk. This quiet little cafe attracts many inside to experience the calming, rustic atmosphere and to witness the burley, handsome men working behind the counters. Jaskier comes waltzing in and his warm presence demands Geralt's attention instantly. These two goofs are enamored with one another and goofy fluff ensues.

    Summary

    Geralt and Ciri are still trying everything they can to find Jaskier. After a... traumatizing split, they come back together in a new universe entirely. They're offered a chance to distract themselves from their worry over Jaskier, and the perilous journey they're on, by helping a female version of their favorite bard steal a wagon, rob a train, and, just maybe, come to terms with a worry that's been plaguing her.

    Featuring: much talk of guns, someone getting shot (on accident), a murder! (on purpose), Jaskier the Horse!girl, one (1) dissociative episode, one (1) panic attack (though not the same character), and just enough fluff and banter to even it all out.

    Summary

    After Geralt meets the bard, they go their separate ways, only to meet up later that day, kidnapped by the same group of irate elves. He leaves soon after that only to be reunited shortly after. They meet up again and again and nothing Geralt tries stops him from running into the bard.

    One day, after being mortally wounded, dropped by a creature practically at the bard's feet, the bard suggests they give in and accept that the fates want them together, for whatever reason. Geralt, despite recognizing the bard is right, is determined to outrun any plans destiny might have for him, insists they go their separate ways.

    When he stumbled upon Jaskier again, in a position no one should ever be in, he regrets not accepting what destiny demanded sooner.

    Summary

    Five times Yennefer shares a drink with Jaskier over the course of their relationship, and one time she drinks with Geralt, instead.

    It’s a love story - with a lot of alcohol.

    Summary

    Jaskier decides to spend his winter in a nice little coastal town. He's expecting to find some beds to warm, some inspiration, definitely some rest and relaxation. What he's not expecting is to find friendship, a new family, or a chance at immortality. After all, people never actually want him to stick around.

    Well, apparently not never.

    Summary

    Jaskier swirls his wine, eyes blank as they stare at the empty seat in front of him. He glances at his phone for the time before anxiously looking at the door. Still not there. Two hours late, a no-show. The appetizers grow cold, and Jaskier waves for the waiter to pack it up for him— the restaurant’s fucking expensive, and he’ll be damned before letting good food go to waste. He smiles at the waiter, not quite looking at him— can’t really take the pity in the man’s eyes as he whisks away the plate and returns with a brown bag with the restaurant’s sprawling cursive logo on its side.

    Today was fucking special, a one-year anniversary that Geralt, stupidly hot, stupidly smart Geralt, had set up in a fancy-ass restaurant, an entire romantic night planned out…

    Well, there was a reason no other relationship he’s been in has lasted longer than a month.

    Or, Geralt gets caught up at work, and Jaskier gets stood up.

    Summary

    Geralt does not like being touched, except under specific circumstances. It requires a level of trust that he is simply not comfortable giving. Jaskier, though, seems determined to earn it.

    (An inversion of the touch-starved Geralt trope)
