    Summary

    It’s midday, not too far south of the main road to Cintra, when Jaskier pulls Yen to the side as Geralt is drinking from a stream. "So, uh, as the trained mage amongst this little trio, I'm going to defer to you to explain to Geralt what's going on."

    Yennefer looks at him in amusement. "You know what this affliction is?"

    "Of course!" Jaskier sounds almost offended. "A disease caused by romantic affection, or more specifically, the lack thereof? Ma'am, I am a bard and we cut our teeth on this kind of poetry existing in real life. Anyone who can play a chord knows about Hanahaki."

    Summary

    Jaskier loved the time he spent traveling with Geralt trekking up and down the continent. Not only did he get to see Geralt slay monsters and help people, but he also got to sleep with some of the most beautiful men and women he had ever seen, and Geralt only had to stop people from killing him for it a handful of times!

    And all his experiences were perfect songwriting fodder that he turned into songs that continued to make him more and more famous. Her Sweet Kiss, Elaine Ettarial, The Fishmonger’s Daughter, The Stars Above the Path, and of course Toss a Coin to Your Witcher; each an experience Jaskier plucked and polished until it rang brightly in the air, far better than anything Valdo Marx had ever done. Soon enough, Jaskier’s songs were sung in every tavern from Kovir to Nilfgaard. His songs became the standards by which every young Bard was tested, and Jaskier couldn’t help the fierce pride that rose within him at each young voice that sang his words.

    But suddenly things started to feel…different.

    Summary

    “So… you’ll come to the banquet to protect me, but not as my bodyguard?” Jaskier sang.

    Geralt furrowed his brow and hummed.

    Jaskier rolled his eyes and scoffed. “Well you still refuse to use the term friend so that won’t work. You’ll have to be my plus one!” He laughed at his own joke, ignoring the spike in his heartbeat.

    Just a joke, Jask.

    Geralt hummed and tilted his head. “Alright.”

    Summary

    Jaskier doesn't know a damn thing about life on the road, so when he starts travelling with Geralt he has to learn the hard way. This fic has three parts: the first part a smattering of first experiences for Jaskier as he adapts to life on the road, and how Geralt slowly develops a fondness for the bard. The second part is a dramatic rescue involving a gryphon. The third part is all the pieces finally falling in place.

    Summary

    Jaskier has disappeard. No one has seen him or heard from him ever since the beginning of the war with Nilfgaard. Geralt was looking for him everywhere, but there wasn't a single trace of him on the entire Continent. So the Witcher went back to Kaer Morhen with the knowledge that he has to accept the loss. The thing was, accepting the loss appears to be a lot harder that he thought.

    Or the story of how a certain witcher was looking for a certain bard.

    Summary

    When Jaskier's turned into a vampire, it admittedly takes a while for either he or Geralt to notice. When he's too afraid to take care of his needs, the witcher offers a solution that works for both of them. Sex has, after all, always been the best way to motivate him.

    Summary

    “I want nothing.”

    The thing is, it’s not a lie. Not really. It’s just that it’s an incomplete sentence.

    Summary

    Witchers feel emotions, Renfri wasn't a monster, Roach is notably chill, Geralt prefers nonhuman company and lies a lot, Jaskier is generally good at people but is happy to ignore what they say because he thinks he knows best, Yennefer's life is abuse piled atop abuse with a sprinkle of ethnic cleansing and a complete lack of choice, Istredd's life likely wasn't much better, Tissaia does not know what she's doing, Triss is lying about being assigned to cure the princess but is afraid to admit a personal investment, Jaskier is surprisingly tolerant of Geralt getting him on Calanthe's shitlist, Kalis was in a bad situation, and didn't rise above it, it really shouldn't surprise people Yennefer gets weird about having a kid, rogue mages are afraid of the Brotherhood but it seems to be a paper tiger.

    Ch21:Jaskier took being dumped by the countess really hard, and it's left him worried about if Geralt doesn't care about him either. Despite being drunk and having his own problems, he's concerned for Geralt and wants to help him.

    Summary

    Jaskier likes to think of his life beginning at Oxenfurt. It’s easier that way--easier to think he is simply a human bard. He can let the memories of his parents and court and draconic life fade into the past where it belongs. And honestly, was his life really him living before studying music? What’s a bard without a song or a poet without words?
    Yes, things are simpler this way...most of the time.

    Summary

    Jaskier looks into the mirror. Julian of Cintra stares back at him, and there is almost nothing of Jaskier in that reflection. Gone is the bard who’d wowed the Continent with his songs, and Jaskier grieves for the loss, heart heavy and aching.

    He’d managed to discover what he would have been had he not been a witcher, but he will never have it again. Returning to the Path will be painful, knowing that he will once again be rejected by humans, and it leaves a hollowness in Jaskier as he realises that he will no longer be loved. Not anymore.

    *

    Before Jaskier the bard was born, there was Julian of Cintra, a witcher tired of his life on the Path. Julian gets the life he wants and lives four decades as Jaskier, until he’s forced to return to his life as Julian after the dragon hunt.

    As he struggles to reconcile his two identities, Julian finds Geralt and Ciri, and slowly lets himself trust again.

    Summary

    The bard leaned against a pillar and propped one leg on a stool, strumming his lute loudly. Well, maybe he could wait a bit longer. Just a few glances more. Humans were so inattentive; they never saw him looking. If they did, if they suspected even for a moment, he'd be willing to do more than just stare- Let's say his parting from Blaviken would have been almost idyllic in comparison. 'Prejudiced pricks, the lot of them,' he thought angrily.

    Summary

    He can feel that Geralt hasn’t taken his eyes of off him. He sits in front of the fire at the campsite, wearing one of the witcher’s oversized shirts and tearing into their food supplies, devouring anything within reach.

    „I thought you were dead,“ Geralt says later when the girl has fallen asleep. He can still recognize the tells of Geralt’s body, the way his shoulders tense, his voice tinted in an odd grave hue. He feels guilty.

    „I was,“ Jaskier chuckles, finding the exchange funny. Geralt is not laughing.

    Summary

    Jaskier has known for quite a bit that Geralt is bad with his words, bad with expressing his emotions. He’s a man of action, not words, so when Geralt doesn’t call him his friend, he doesn’t take it too personally, he doesn’t take it too personally when he calls Jaskier an annoyance or when he denies he enjoys Jaskiers company. He’s known the man for almost a decade and only heard about one of his brothers while he was drunk, so it just seems like a Geralt thing.Besides, Geralt expresses it in other ways, the way he lets Jaskier occasionally tend to his wounds,the way he stops by towns that don’t have big contracts to let Jaskier perform, the way he buys Jaskier a dagger with a blue jewel, the way they meet every spring, so words aren’t really necessary… Right?

    Jaskier and Geralt have to pretend to be engaged.

    Surprisingly, it's Geralt's idea.

    Everything is simultaneously the most hare-brained scheme and the most thorough production in the world.
