    Summary

    “Right - well it’s been lovely talking to you girls but it seems I have news,” Jaskier said, hiding his confusion as he ushered them out of his office, “I’ll see you in class tomorrow.”

    Cintra has fallen. You know what to do. Live up to your promise - M

    No one was there to hold him as he cried, mourning for the loss of a kingdom, a queen, and the innocence of a child untouched by war.

    Summary

    'Some said the Sandpiper was so amazing he wasn't even a person, just a song of safety that carried on the wind. Said he could enchant guards with just a hum of tine. I've heard some say he's an elf mage in disguise, strong as a dragon and beautiful as Francesca. When we met him, sure he wasn't any of those things, but his songs were good and I can't but thank him for saving me and mother'
    Elven child's diary - Cintra 1264

    or

    Jaskier's face will forever be a memory of freedom for some, Sandpiper the name of the saivour of elves. And I wanted to explore how Jaskier's deeds deserve some more recognition and how him arguing with the deck guard seemed...wrong, especially if Jaskier had been helping elves for a while by the moment we see him.
    If other favourite concepts and headcanons for him made their way into this well...

    Summary

    "Jaskier was like a rock at the bottom of a lake. He observed the world flow around him in a blur, and yet he couldn’t move. He felt heavy and tired, oh so tired"

    Summary

    Whatever kind of ache arises from being told by your best friend of twenty years and possible love of your life that they hate you and never want to see you again does fade, given time. Albeit slowly. He stops crying, eventually. Geralt’s words still spin around his head, but Jaskier cultivates a healthier way of thinking. He’s not… he’s not really such a burden. He’s not just an annoyance to the people he cares about. He’s valuable. He creates things that people love. Geralt is just… just… broody. He’s just broody, and sort of volatile, and Jaskier… Jaskier has never been enough to comfort him. Jaskier’s presence has never been what pleases Geralt. He’s never been enough.

    Well, he definitely starts something healthier. It doesn’t always spin out into what he intends it to be.

     

    -

    Jaskier is an artist, and that means compassion, means being compelled to help those who are different from you. The persecution of the elves makes him feel sick, and desolate, and he sets out to do what kindness he can, in a world that endeavors only to be cruel.

    Summary

    grand pause: a symbol used in music that indicates to the musician to rest indefinitely. Exactly how long the rest lasts is up to the musician or the conductor.

    Jaskier walks away from the mountain having lost a witcher and gained a drinking partner, and everything is fine, really.
    Until a curse takes his voice away and the only way to break it is with a good old-fashioned true love's kiss. Easier said - or not, in this case - than done.

    Summary

    It took Jaskier almost a month to reach the coast, but it was worth it. He arrived when the sun was just rising, making everything look like it was painted with amber and honey. The wave touched cooling on his bare feet, he sat on the sand and observed the sea with wet eyes.

    He wept and through the tears he decided. He decided to kill Jaskier.

     

    Or, Geralt and Yennefer think Jaskier is dead. He’s not. He’s living your cottagecore fantasy but he’s also learning a lot with his new friend.

    Summary

    The anger comes later, once the fresh hurt has left him.

    After the mountain, Jaskier tries his best to forget about Geralt of Rivia. It would be far easier if the Witcher would stop somehow getting Jaskier involved in his messes, or if he stopped trying to apologise, badly.

    Jaskier is a wanted man, Nilfgaard is on the move, a princess is missing and a Witcher is wanted. There's a sorceress who has made it her one goal in life to annoy him. Somehow none of these are his biggest problem, your past will always catch up with you, no matter how hard you try to outrun it.

    Or,

    Jaskier attempts to outrun all his problems at once, he does not succeed in the slightest.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the fight at Kaer Morhen, Jaskier is struggling to fit in.

    I tend to headcanon Jaskier as bi and in love with Geralt, but this story can be read either in that way or as them being just platonic. There's nothing sexual in this story, it's all emotion, and angst at that.

    Summary

    An unknown Mage made the grave mistake of meddling with the Spiral, summoning forth a very confused Legolas into the world of The Witcher.

    Plucked haplessly from his adventures with Gimli, Legolas explores this new world in search for the Witcher Geralt, the one who could help his new companion Jaskier.

    Jaskier once again found himself at the whims of someones magic, this time changing him in ways he never thought would be possible. On the bright side, he at least got to write as many songs about the beautiful man who decided to stay by his side.

    Geralt must search for his bard and the being from another world after a dream Ciri saw, of powerful beings of light and the change the one summoned would bring to the Continent.

    Summary

    "You know what you need, piglet. Your magic. You’re running out of time."

    There was a pressure, a ringing in her ears. At the tip of her tongue was the compulsion to say the words. To say the words that would pull her into the realm, the hut, of the Deathless Mother. Back on to her path. Put her where she was meant to be.

    "Show me what you want. Heal your wounds, you know the words. Say them!"

    When had Yennefer ever done what she was told?

    “GET OUT OF MY HEAD!”

    *

    Major s2 Spoilers. Canon Divergence from s2e5. Yennefer escapes the guards holding her captive, breaks Jaskier out of prison, and together they head off to warn Geralt and his child surprise of the danger coming for them.

    Summary

    "Yes, of course Geralt, I'll help you!" Jaskier mutters, throwing his hands up in the air as Cirilla continues to storm ahead. "Yes, I will escort this child to your Witcher fort, even though she's the one with a sword and magic and she knows where to go while you never bloody told me anything beyond the name of the fucking place!"

    "I'm not a child," Cirilla calls over her shoulder.

    Jaskier snorts. "Yes you are."

    She shoots a venomous glare at him over her shoulder and somehow makes her footsteps angrier and more stompy. Jaskier rolls his eyes and follows at a quieter pace.

     

    Jaskier becomes an unlikely friend to Cirilla over the course of their journey to Kaer Morhen.

    Summary

    Heroes die. That's just what they do. They fight and win and save people until they can't anymore, and then they die. Geralt is no different.
    He's a hero, and he dies like one.
    The part of his story that's different to all the rest is that he has a bard willing to walk into the afterworld into the courts of the gods themselves to get him back, and a sorceress strong enough to give him a way in.
    (Jaskier takes one look at Geralt's body and decides that this isn't how their story ends. So he writes a new ending.)

    Summary

    Jaskier is itching for a city (and in general just itches, it’s been days since he last bathed) but he’s practically out of food and Pegasus throws a shoe, so another pitstop becomes necessary. He can see the Dorndall fortress looming in the distance, and thus presumes with some certainty that there’s at least a village nearby. Jaskier also vows to procure a better map at his nearest opportunity.

     

    Indeed, a few miles east of Dorndall stands a modest little town called Dry Gulch, which is just a lovely name and not at all depressing or bleak. Ah, well. Needs must. “Come on, Peg,” he urges. “To sweet civilization we go.”

    Summary

    “You went somewhere just now and I couldn’t reach you,” Yennefer says. Her fingertips paint a smudge on his cheekbone, just a whisper of a touch, but it alights something in him. Something that begs for him to fall on his knees and plead for Yennefer to come with him.

    He opens his mouth, words of desperation ready to rush out.

    But Yennefer of Vengerberg is one of Destiny’s beloved pawns. No author could end their story the way he wants. What Jaskier wants has never been Destiny’s greatest concern, and his little halcyon is a puny attempt to fight Her.

    “When you see Ciri, tell her Dandelion said hello,” he tells her and leaves.

    ***

    Jaskier meanders after the mountain; he meets many friends, goes many places, and finally he goes home.
