    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

    Jaskier wasn't exactly sure what he had expected Kaer Morhen to be like but the keep was everything and nothing like it. The place was a dichotomy. Magnificent and sad in equal measures in its derelict state. Silent but full of noise. Cold yet filled with warmth.

    But most importantly, it was Geralt's home. Seeing him so relaxed, the sharpest edges rounded down with the knowledge of being safe and surrounded by his family was a beautiful sight to behold.

    Jaskier wished he too would relearn what safety felt like.

    Summary

    When Lambert loses his silver blade on a hunt, he's forced to go looking for a weaponsmith capable of forging a replacement. Few and far between on the Continent, but he'd sooner chew his right arm off than return to Kaer Morhen with his tail between his legs. His contractor sends him to Vattweir, where he meets a former Cat Witcher with a complicated history. Lambert's initial advances are violently rebuffed, but as he spends more time with Aiden, he uncovers a man that is still beholden to ghosts from the life he tried to leave behind. As the embers of more complicated feelings begin to gather, another watches on from a distance, guiding Lambert towards happiness the best he can while hiding his own broken heart.

    Well, that was a fucking lie.

    Summary

    When Geralt and Jaskier are ambushed, Jaskier is helpless to do anything but shout as a mysterious group subdues Geralt and drags him away.

    Summary

    At first, Jaskier had praised Destiny. Unwanted by one Witcher and she had given him to another who needed him, who wanted him, who loved him. And oh, how Jaskier had loved him back. But now, Jaskier is done with being Destiny's plaything.

    Summary

    Jaskier was also fairly hands-on. Very...how had he put it? Touchy-feely. He was loud and touchy, though hardly ever in a pressuring way, and that is the reason Geralt heard about how he is dense; how he sees nothing.

    Because if there was ever anyone Jaskier was very touchy-feely with, it was him.

    Summary

    When Gorthur Gvaed fell to the Usurper's forces, its students scattered. Like their namesakes, the Witchers of the Viper School found many hidden places to hide, heal... and return.

    Summary

    That was always it, wasn’t it? It was always just about being wanted.

    Yennefer, Geralt, and Jaskier each seperately come to terms with their bitter truths.

     
    "I keep swinging my hands through a swarm of bees 'cause I want honey on my table.
    I try to stick this pin through a butterfly 'cause I like all the pretty colors
    It just fell apart, so I flung it in the fire to burn with all the others
    But I never get it right.
    I keep swinging my hand through a swarm of bees, I can't understand why they're stinging me
    But I'll do what I want, I'll do what I please, I'll do it again 'til I've got what I need
    I'll rip and smash through the hornet's nest, Do you understand I deserve the best?
    And I'll do what I want, I'll do what I please, I'll do it again 'til I've got what I need"

    Summary

    It all happened so fast. 

    One minute, Aiden was driving along the dark road, lit only by a handful of streetlights every few metres, and the next, there was a flash of blue followed by a thud as something hit his car. Suddenly alert, Aiden slammed on the brakes, the screeching of the wheels echoing loudly in his ears as he came to an abrupt halt. For a moment, Aiden couldn't move. His heart pounded in his chest, his eyes wide as he stared at the road that had darkened once more, no blue light to be seen even though Aiden could have sworn he hadn’t imagined it.

    --
    Lambert never thought he would ever get a chance at seeing his dead lover again, but Destiny has other plans for them. During the chaos of the Battle of Kaer Morhen, Lambert falls through a portal and ends up in our world, where he is greeted by a strangely familiar face.

    Summary

    “You call that a strike? Jaskier strums his lute harder than that,” Lambert called as Ciri attacked the practice dummy. “Chin up, tuck your left elbow in a bit more. Better. Look less like a bird trying to flap away at least. Watch that knee - you’re overextending again.”

    “ARGH! WHAT’S THE FUCKING POINT?!” Ciri yelled suddenly as she spun to face him, panting with exertion.

    “Hey - watch your fucking language, kid,” Lambert said, his breath coming out in big plumes of fog from the cold winter air. “If Geralt thinks I’m a bad influence on his princess, he’ll be on me about it for the next two decades at least.”

    “I’m not a princess, and I’m not a witcher either - I’m not anything,” she spat back glaring at the snow-covered cobblestones beneath them, fury and hurt and defiance and rage writ in every line.

    Lambert wondered if this was how he’d looked, all those decades ago.

    Summary

    Geralt has only ever talked about one nuisance bard, the one that wrote the fucking song that has people throwing coppers at him when he walks into bars. Jaskier something or other, who gives a shit, “Why the fuck is he here?”

    “To winter with me,” Geralt snaps, a warning in his tone Lambert readily ignores. “Problem?”

    “Yeah, the problem is the strange prostitute you brought to The Keep!!” Lambert exclaims, because he’d had a feeling Geralt was smitten, but apparently, he’s an idiot and doesn’t know a bad idea when he sees one if it smiles at him pretty enough.

    “Hey, I’m at least a strange courtesan!” the bard calls.

     

    (Lambert is extremely protective of the very little he has, including his brother. Jaskier is a threat to all of them, he doesn’t get why everyone doesn’t see that.)

    Summary

    Lambert was stubborn to reject Geralt's invitation to come to Toussaint for winter after the Battle of Kaer Morhen.

    He took contract after contract trying to stay warm, taking even the slightest chance to stay indoors in this cold. Find a goat? Yes, whatever, just let me in for the night. Kill the pack of wolves so they don’t attack the village? No problem, where is my bed now? He sold his gelding and most of his belongings when it didn’t work out. Hunt the deer, fix the roof, muck out the stables, wash the dishes, kick the shit of some bandits, kill some monsters... He lost count.

    So when he limped to the mud hut in the middle of nowhere, with ice cracking beneath his boots down to the mosses, he didn’t even have the strength to knock on the door, not to even rasp “please let me in just for one night”.

    He just passed out on the threshold. The last thing he saw was how snow stirred on the ground by his breath, too cold to melt it.

    Summary

    Eskel and Lambert have very different ideas of what it is to be a witcher. One the heir apparent to the crumbling Kaer Morhen and the institutions that have governed the witcher way of life for centuries, the other determined to rail against the injustice and trauma suffered at the hands of said institutions. Yet, somehow, they have established an understanding; they can find familiarity and comfort with each other that they can't get anywhere else.

    A compilation of Eskel/Lambert stories that were too short to warrant their own story. Each chapter is a stand alone story, with some canon and some modern AUs.

    Summary

    If you asked Sven when it started, it was when he had screamed himself awake in the infirmary from a nightmare filled with monsters; from dreams of gnashing teeth and dagger-like claws and a swamp filled with blood.

    When he was woken up from one nightmare into another.

     But he hadn't woken up alone at least - another boy was slumped across his bed like he had fallen asleep watching over Sven. Jostled awake by his movement maybe, a pair of warm brown eyes blinked back at Sven groggily from under a mop of red hair.

    Three young witchers, tragedy at their backs and a whole world at their feet.

    Summary

    The far North had always been more superstitious than the rest of the Continent. The running joke was “rivers run backwards, north of the Braa.” Which is why a young mother wept the night she gave birth to twins.

    Summary

    In a modern era that has forgotten about magic, monsters, Witchers, and nonhumans and coined it all as part of the supernatural, Witchers get together once a year and with the help of their sorceress friends put on the most realistic haunted house that a human could ever see. It helps that they have centuries of real experience to draw on, sentient friendly "monster" friends, and mages who are still strong in magic to make their "special effects" real. Eskel takes a stroll through this years haunted Keep, Kaer Morhen.

    Summary

    A grinning face. Eyes aglow with flame. Teeth like jagged blades, ready to devour him.

     

    He shot across the clearing with a gasp. The Wolf jolted awake, startled, and Kiyan flinched. His eyes caught on the glint of silver resting on the witcher’s chest. For weeks now, he’d swung wildly between relief at finally seeing another medallion — proof that one of his own kind had found him at last — and terror at the sight of a snarling wolf’s head — the symbol of his people’s enemy.

     

    ”Wolf. Not safe. He’ll hurt you. Hateful. Terrible. Kill him, before he can hurt you!”

     

    They move North, and Kiyan fights with the thing inside his head.
