    Summary

    "I don't want to remember, but I...regret that I had to forget."

    Geralt has always had the ability to see the future in his dreams, only he had to forget. While on the Path, his work is to kill monsters, but his main goal is to avoid destiny as long as possible.

    Regis has always had been on the run from the prophecy he knows he is involved in, but has no knowledge of what that prophecy is. A man can only run for so long, but how about a vampire?

    Fate. Destiny. Call it what you will, but it will always bring those who are bound to each other together.

    The smell of wormwood lingers in Geralt's mind even after waking and has stayed with him for years.

    The smell of the most tempting blood, elder blood, has been with Regis since he first dreamed it.

    Sometimes, running from destiny will only bring you to it faster.

    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

    The betas of Kaer Morhen had a duty, and that was to keep the alphas of their school safe, and the omegas of their school in check. A feral, unattended omega in heat could wreck havoc on their small community. Remus had always been dutiful.

    The problem is, the last omega of Kaer Morhen is a troublesome one. Lambert is fierce and mean and biting, and he looks upon his heat with spite. Remus is tasked to help, but aiding one so bitter looks to be an almost insurmountable task.

    He’s had worse odds.

    A prequel of “Burning in the Longest Night”, addressing Lambert’s time with Remus.

    Summary

    The man sighs heavily. "I guess you're right." He turns back to Aiden, bright smile back in place. "My apologies, dear witcher, it seems I've forgotten my manners." He offers Aiden his hand to shake with a flourish. "I am the bard Jaskier, graduate of Oxenfurt and Master of the Seven Liberal Arts.

    What.

    Aiden forces himself to take his hand in a firm shake despite the shock that's numbing his limbs. "Aiden," he says, flashing his teeth in a smile. "You're the Toss a Coin bard, right?" Aiden says, like Lambert didn't spend his whole winter bullying Geralt into agreeing to a late spring meet-up and then ditched Aiden for it specifically for the chance that the bard standing in front of Aiden right now would be there.

    Sweet Melitele, Lambert is going to hate him when they meet back up next week. This is amazing.

    Or: Aiden meets Jaskier when he least expect it. He promptly decides that if anything evey happened to him, he would kill everyone in this town and then himself. Which would be a shame, considering that this strange town has been so unexpectedly kind to him.

    Summary

    Eskel is almost a century old and a child just got saddled with him as a soulmate. Somewhere in the world a baby is going to laugh for the first time, and instead of the joyous occasion of seeing a matching little flower bud on their stomach, their parents will be horrified by—

    Breathe, Eskel!” Geralt tells him, because of course he followed, of course he’s got his hand on Eskel’s damp back as Eskel leans against the wall, struggling to draw breath.

    For all that he’s hated the shame his scars stand for, he has never hated his face more acutely than this moment.

     

    (Eskel is approaching his first century when he gets his first soul flower.)

    Summary

    Two years after Kiyan's rescue, the nightmares weren’t as vivid and painful as they had been in the beginning, especially with Adrien’s calming, familiar scent and warmth beside him. Calming, that is, except the nights that Adrien also suffered nightmares of his own.

    Saovine was approaching, the nights were growing longer and colder, and Adrien's nightmares more frequent. The prince still didn't want to talk about them, and Kiyan didn't know how to break the standstill. He wanted to help him, but there was nothing he could do but hold him in his arms.

    Summary

    "Geralt didn’t like assassins, spies, or Vipers. But Jaskier was all three, and clearly, Geralt was still coming to terms with that."

    After the inevitable reveal of Jaskier's Viper-ness, many of Kaer Morhen inhabitants had questions abut Jaskier's unbringing. This was problematic because:

    a) He would rather avoid the topic for as long as humanly possible.
    b) it was winter, which meant that dramtically throwing himself out of windows to avoid difficult conversations wouldn't be a good idea.
    c) Jaskier still wasn't sure exactly how stable his and Geralt's newly-established relationship was, and he wasn't willing to destroy everything they had because of all the (very) horrible things he'd done in his (extremely) long life.

    But after a run-in with someone from Jaskier's past, and the panic-ridden manhunt that follows, Jaskier's families find themselves closer than ever - for better, or for worse.

    Summary

    When the Redanian government decides to revive the ancient legal tradition of Correctional Marriage, Eskel is forced to take on his strangest Witcher contract yet: he must marry and "rehabilitate" a convicted smuggler who also happens to be a bard, a Viscount, and the longtime companion of Eskel’s best friend, Geralt of Rivia.

    Jaskier expected to waste away in a dark prison cell under the streets of his beloved Oxenfurt. Instead, he is given a simple but impossible choice: agree to marry a strange Witcher, or hang for his crimes. Jaskier soon finds himself handfasted to Eskel, a man he barely knows and cannot afford to trust.

    Bound together by fate, marriage, and a powerful spell known as the Ringbound Curse, Eskel and Jaskier’s destinies were linked long before their first meeting. Now they must learn how to work together, break the deadly curse, and find Geralt of Rivia before it’s too late.

    Summary

    “Tell me,” she snarls, “I have your life in my hands, bard, and you will tell me where Geralt of Rivia is so I can give you the mercy of a crushed heart.” 

    Blood wells in his mouth and when he tries to speak, it bubbles from his lips and doesn’t stop. A warm fog edges in on his vision and Jaskier reaches for it desperately, seeking the peace that darkness offers him. He wraps it around himself and if he ignores the pain thudding with every labored pulse of his heart, Jaskier is able to go to that place in his memories where Geralt throws his cloak to him, grumbling about how he can’t sleep with Jaskier’s teeth chattering so loudly. 

    He hears Fringilla, feels her nails dig into the resisting muscle of his heart, but he sees Geralt. Sitting across from him by the fire and trying to hide the quirk of his lips as Jaskier drowns in his cloak. I’ll die for you, he wants to say, though Geralt isn’t real and each breath Jaskier takes is more difficult, I will die a thousand times if it means you live. 

    -

    Trouble finds Jaskier and brings him to Nilfgaard, but our bard inevitably finds his way free and back into the hands of the Witcher that left him on a mountain all those months ago.

    Summary

    After one of Jaskier's students had been saved from a giant tentacle monster (a thing that shouldn't, by all that is good and holy, even exist) by witchers (another thing that shouldn't rightly be real), Jaskier had managed to score the chance to realize one of his academic dreams. He was going to learn everything about his favored time period from people who'd actually lived during it. All he'd had to do was convince the Dean of Oxenfurt University to bring the three honest-to-goodness cryptids on as adjunct professors.

    Which he'd managed weeks ago after the initial incident, with admirable aplomb if he did say so himself.

    Now it's the first day of class. Jaskier is auditing the witchers' lecture course.

    It's exactly as much of a clusterfuck as he feared it would be. Jaskier has never been so excited.

    **Now with a second chapter! :D **
