    Summary

    Jaskier told himself it was the suffering that made his music better and he would say as much to anyone he met.

    The miles he had trekked to this new place were a reminder of the long road to success, the lack of interest from the crowd showed their inability to appreciate talent when they heard it and frankly the mugging at the end of the night would be a good song one day.

    At least, that’s what Jaskier told himself as he was punched in the face for the second time.

    Summary

    Julian Alfred Pankratz, youngest son of the Viscount de Lettenhove, has it good. He travels the world as a bard, comes home to his loving and supportive family, adores his best friend since childhood, and couldn’t ask for more. When Redania trades him to The Great Wolf of Kaedwen in exchange for peace as a punishment to his father, he’s understandably upset. After a failed escape attempt, he is dragged to the Blue Mountains and the Great Wolf’s keep, Kaer Morhen to accept his fate alongside his childhood friend. But things aren’t all they’ve been made out to be and perhaps this won’t be the worst thing after all.

    Summary

    The tale goes like this: There is a cottage on a river island deep in the woods of Temeria. In that cottage, an elf has seen ten winters pass, unable to leave his beautiful isle. Dead to the world for an entire decade, the elf last known as Jaskier is pleasantly surprised when none other than Triss Merigold stumbles upon his quaint realm, but hope hurts almost as bad as love does, and he'll need a Witcher to break free from the constraints of a jealous river goddess of old. There is a mountain of things left unsaid between them, a decade of grief and loneliness on either side - but if there's one thing such tragedy is good for, it's bringing them closer to the soft truth lying hidden in the woods.

    Summary

    "How are you, Jaskier?"

    “If you asked me that five years ago, I would’ve said that I was feeling fantastic and it would’ve been a lie. But now? Honestly? I’m doing really well.”

    “Yeah?”

    Jaskier smiles, dimples showing as his eyes quickly dart to the side.

    “Yup. Almost twenty years in the industry and I can honestly disclose to you now that I’m at my happiest and healthiest — in mind, body, and soul. I mean, sure, the journey wasn’t easy, but it was necessary, I suppose. To have ended up where I am, I’d call it a miracle.”

    ~

    After scoring numerous #1 hits and snagging prestigious awards, Jaskier Pankratz is the most successful musician of his generation. Everyone he knows repeatedly tells him that he's making history, and Jaskier believes them, lapping up all the praise and accolades from his critics and passionate fans. But after a series of scandals and rumours sully his reputation, the world holds its breath when Jaskier disappears from the public eye for years.

    A story of love and heartbreak, of second chances and consequences, of choosing one's family, and ultimately, finding happiness in the right places, with the right people.

    Summary

    4 weeks to find the person you're going to spend the rest of your life with. Sounds easy enough. Oh, except you don't get to see the person until you're engaged and have to "date" through a wall. Jaskier is inspired, Geralt is cranky, Yennefer is amused.

    Summary

    "Have you had any experiences recently that have caused you stress or anxiety?”

    Yennefer snorts.

    “Well, I went from living in a 3000 square foot penthouse flat in Cintra to a hotel room in the middle of nowhere so—”

    Geralts eyes widen. “That sounds like it would do it.”

    Julian Pankratz, one of the Continent's most famous playboys, always invited to the hottest parties, always seen with the best of the best, is enjoying his lavish life in his huge Cintran apartment when he suddenly gets cut off by his parents and is sent to live in the middle of nowhere.

    It might turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to him.

    Summary

    Yennefer is a witch, trained by Tissaia de Vries. Having entered a new town, Yennefer is quickly made aware of all its secrets and hidden monsters...

    Triss has been practising witchcraft quietly for years in the backwater town of Temeria. She’s kept them safe from supernatural threats for years, but now they are increasing in number and she is losing the ability to cope.

    Geralt just needs a nap.

    And Jaskier has a bad reputation with the locals, even without being a faerie.

    (Rated M due to dark themes, but this fic is safe for minors/does not contain sexual content! Generally speaking, if you were fine with the Witcher TV series, then you should be fine with this. Chapter-specific TWs are given - please inform me if there is anything more in this fic that you wish to be warned about.)

    Summary

    Finally, on the third day, Jaskier can’t bear it anymore. He texts Yennefer.
    "I’m going to ask you something and you are going to be 100% honest with me. Do I work at a mob bar?"

    - or -

    Jaskier encounters a large-ish, lovely-ish, irascible-ish speed bump named Geralt on the road to international pop stardom.

    Summary

    Jaskier doesn’t actually know how much time has passed since the black-cloaked Nilfgaardians grab him after a performance in a shitty tavern in the backcountry of northern Kaedwen. He’d assumed--foolishly, apparently--that he was far enough north that any Nilfgaardian soldiers would be few and far between, likely just scouts or even deserters. It would have been hard to actually get any further north--the little backwater town where he’d been singing was just a day from the mountains. Anymore travel, and he’d find himself skirting the Trail up to Kaer Morhen, the Warlord’s Keep, and, well. He’s brazen, but not that brazen.

    (or: a wandering bard bites off more than he can chew with the political ballads, accidentally makes friends with a princess in exile, and finds the Warlord of the North in his debt.)

    Summary

    Summary

    Geralt hadn't realised just how lonely he was before Ciri had moved in with him following the accident that tore her family apart. His life had just been work, sleep, eat, repeat. He had never expected to become a single parent but Destiny had other plans for him and now he wouldn't change it for the world.

    Now, if only he could get Ciri's blue-eyed teacher out of his head then everything would be fine.

    Summary

    Jaskier picks himself up and dusts himself down. Don't cry, he tells himself fiercely. Do not cry. If the other boys see him crying they will only pick on him more and his father will be so disappointed.

    "Why didn't you just give them your book?" 

    He startles and turns around to see the most beautiful man he has ever seen.

    Except it's not a man... It's got wings.

    "What are you?" He blurts.

    The creature squints at him, "fuck." It grunts, "why do I always get lumbered with the idiots?"

    Geralt still walks the path but in his role as a soldier of heaven. Jaskier is his human assignment.
    It goes exactly as well as you'd expect

    Summary

    “You’ve gotten rusty.”

    Jaskier rolled his shoulders back. The blade was a bit long for his taste, but it handled well. “I’ve been in the habit of trading barbs, not blows.”

    ---

    After Geralt and the mountain, Jaskier returns to life as a traveling bard--running into old friends and surprising new flames.

    Summary

    Jaskier took a shuddering breath. "I refuse. I refuse to spend the rest of my life wasting away at his bedside-"

     

    Yennefer's touch was too soft, her eyes too gentle when she said: "You don't have to stay. I'll keep him safe." As if he was a child. As if he was an idiot.

    "Of course, I'd stay!" he howled. "He's my- my- my Geralt! Half my life I spent at his side. Without him there's... nothing left."

    "Jaskier-" she tried again.

    "Please," he begged. "Please, you love him, too, do you not? This can't be what you want. There must be something- Anything-!"

     

    Geralt takes on a contract to investigate some spectral activity in a haunted ruin. As it happens, he disturbs the residence of a powerful being, that traps his soul in a nefarious netherworld. Jaskier, local bard with no sense of self preservation, does the obvious and follows him, trying to parse information from talking plants and braving unspeakable horrors in order to bargain for his witcher's soul. If only that were as easy as it sounded.

    Summary

    It's a war. And what's a human being, in the grand scheme of things?

    [Previous summary :
    The countess de Stael lurks in the dark, and Jaskier can't really go far.
    Or : The countess de Stael is a spy master for the best of price. And Jaskier..well, he does what he can to survive.
    And who cares, Yennefer is always there, to pick up the pieces left. ]

    Summary

    Geralt watches helplessly as the body thrashes on the ground in unbearable agony. Watches as the enormous black werewolf tears the animal's flesh into tattered shreds.

    And then, for a fleeting moment, their eyes meet.

    Cornflower-blue eyes glitter like sapphires as they stare into Geralt's own amber-gold ones. They reflect nothing but pain, and a desperate plea to Geralt.

    "Run, Geralt! Run!"

    Summary

    "You wrote two fucking sonnets because I can't catch a bloody toad!" he barked and dunked him again. This time he landed a vicious kick into the hollow of his knee that made the witcher grunt as his legs buckled beneath him.

    "Bastard bard...," he grunted and hauled him up.

    Jaskier grinned widely. "Witless witcher," he countered and dealt a blow that Geralt had taught him. Roach let out a judgemental snort and moments later Jaskier discovered why: The punch had been a severe miscalculation, for Geralt saw it coming. He deflected his punch and before he even knew what was happening, he fell face first into the mud. "Elgh, Geralt, that's disgusting!"

     

    Geralt and Jaskier are sent on a contract: to catch a toad. Who knew such a tiny creature could best a witcher, a bard, and a horse?
