    Summary

    Of course this would happen. Destiny just couldn’t let him die in peace. Because why would it!?

    Jaskier had felt a pit form in his stomach as soon as he’d seen that messy white hair and those blasted golden eyes. He’d had a bad enough day already and it was about to get way worse.

    [so this will be my first fic posted on ao3 - hope it’s alright considering I haven’t edited much at all]

    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, captured by Nilfgaard and tortured for weeks, has panic attacks because no one knows where he is and no one is coming to rescue him.

    Basically a giant whump fic with plenty of angst and hurt but no comfort until later.

    Trigger warnings throughout the whole story for panic attacks.

    Summary

    It’s almost 2 months after the Mountain Incident and Jaskier is sitting at a tavern, drinking his sorrows away. About Geralt, his sorry state of being (no lute, low on coin, alone), fall of Cintra just 2 weeks ago, fate and everything else. He though he was going to stay by the witcher’s side forever, but life’s no fairy tale. So more ale for him.
    In the corner Nilfgaardian soldiers get ready to kidnap the bard and give him to their wicked sorceress leader to force information from him about the lost princess. She may torture and curse him to get what they need, but hey, what can you expect from Fringilla Vigo’s student?

    Geralt’s 100% done with destiny. He’s with Ciri and has to hide from Nilfgaard's forces. And he still has to find Yennefer and beg her to locate his bard, damn it! And he needs to apologise if he wants to get his “dear heart” back.

    Yennefer licks her wound hidden in Brudge and contemplates her life.
    Triss helps fellow mages in Vizima.

    Lambert and Eskel travel south in search of Geralt, because they got letters from his bard saying their brother will need help.
    Oh, and they don’t even know about half of the shitshow it’s about to become. Truly ballad worthy story.

    Summary

    Jaskier left the mountain with his heart broken in a manner that he knew all too well. When he meets up with Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri they ask him to accompany them to Kaer Morhen, but surely a burden of a bard has no place in their new family.

    Post-mountain, heavy angst with a happy ending Geraskier, featuring platonic Yennskier and Yennalt. + immortal Jaskier and Ciri getting the family she deserves.

    Summary

    “If it’s like a reservoir, can it be replenished?” Geralt hears himself ask, “So you are no longer drained, but instead…filled up?”
    Jaskier clears his throat at the particular wording and looks away to hold in a laugh. “Um…As long as someone is willing.”
    “Hmm. Can I try?”

    In which Jaskier is an empath, and Geralt's love language is acts of service.

    Summary

    Fuck. Geralt almost wishes that the bard had been sliced by one of the tail spikes rather than bashed against a tree. At least he could have fixed that a little, patched it up enough to get Jaskier to a healer. He can’t do jack shit for internal bleeding. And unless the next town comes equipped with a mage, that godsawful song about an imp fucking a scullery maid will have been the last one to ever pass the bard’s lips.

    Summary

    Summary

    “You can’t….” Aiden gritted his jaw and looked away from him when honeyed eyes shifted towards the source of the sound. “You can’t keep doing this.”

    “Doing what?” Geralt sighed, scrubbing a hand over his face and wincing at the sensation of dried blood flaking away. He must have missed it in the cursory scrub he’d attempted to clean off the evidence of the brief skirmish.

    “Acting like your death won’t be devastating.” A deep breath. “Acting like Jaskier would want you to do this.”

    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

    Jaskier and Geralt’s bonding had been an arranged marriage. Their love born from a necessary union between the Witchers of Kaedwen with the small but conveniently located Kerack. Geralt had never expected to find love in the union. But then, he had never expected Jaskier.

    Summary

    Jaskier only ever sees Geralt at night. The two of them gather like shades in the draughty hall of the castle, huddling close around whatever pitiful sputter of a fire Geralt coaxes up at the hearth. There is very little to say. The cold has long stolen the sing from Jaskier’s song; Geralt, he suspects, is already half-turned to stone.

    Cintra fell to winter seven years ago; a bitter, cursed winter, a cold that kills all who set foot in it. Only a fool would venture into the frozen wastes of Cintra now, and Yennefer of Vengerberg is no fool. Not until she encounters a broken mirror and a thieving crow — a crow that is not, in fact, a crow at all.

    When the thing that matters most to her is stolen, Yennefer will do anything to get it back. But she is not the only victim of this tangled curse, and the more she finds out about Geralt and Jaskier's plight, the less she seems to know.

    Summary

    Every year Geralt travels to the coast to pick up the merman, and every year Jaskier emerges with a flap of his tail and a bright smile on his face, the florescent blue scales gracefully transforming into human legs. Every year Jaskier jumps into the arms of his land-bound witcher and takes his breath away with a bruising kiss.

    But this year, Jaskier does not show up.

    Summary

    Geralt has definitely made plenty of enemies over the many years of his existence as a Witcher. The crudest of labels - mutant, monster, butcher - have rolled of the tongues of nearly all humans that saw him. There was but one person - a sweet, beautiful bard - who never viewed him as such atrocities. Geralt never understood why Jaskier cared so much for him.

    The only thing he understood less than that was how unreasonably in love he was with Jaskier.

    But the last time the Witcher allowed himself to be vulnerable, it ended in disaster the day he was dubbed the "Butcher of Blaviken". Geralt thought it best to deny his feelings after that - or, at the very least, to hide them.

    It seemed unthinkable that anyone would ever target Jaskier in order to get to Geralt, nor to take any brutal measures to silence him...

    ...But what if the unthinkable happened?

    How would Jaskier deal with losing what he built his life around - his voice? Would Geralt remain steadfast at Jaskier's side and do everything he could to undo the damage, or would guilt end up destroying him? Can a lovestruck Witcher and silent bard - their very existences being oxymoronic - ever recognize their feelings for each other?

    Summary

     Geralt could hear the other heartbeat in Jaskier’s sleep-laden body. It pulsated twice as fast as Jaskier’s heartbeat, in his belly. That belly was not as flat as it used to be. That belly did not have the necessary organs for a second heartbeat to exist in it.
     But Geralt could hear it, like distant thunder rolling across a black sky, heralding a lightning storm headed straight for them.
     A heartbeat signified life. A heartbeat was the sound of a muscular organ pounding in the chest of a living entity, pumping blood through a body to keep it alive, to aid in its growth.
     Jaskier’s heartbeat was a sound that comforted Geralt. It was a sound that staved off the screams of monsters and people he’d killed with his knives, his swords, his bare hands, from his conscious mind. A sound that lulled him into rare deep sleep, while he lied next to Jaskier and listened to its stable rhythm echoing from that hirsute, lean chest.
     There was nothing comforting about this other heartbeat.

    ______________________________________

    When Geralt catches the attention of an evil, sadistic sorcerer who wants to hurt the witcher, Jaskier pays the heavy price for it.
