    Summary

    "One last question, Ms Vengerburg… Tell us why you want this job," said Tissaia. Her eyebrows were slightly raised as though she were daring her to lie to her face again.

    Yennefer figured whatever she said wouldn't make a difference at this point. There was no way she was getting this job.

    "I can’t afford my rent because I kicked my roommate out for sleeping with my ex and I need a job that doesn't make me want to stab my eyeballs out with a pen."

    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’s small corner bakery had many regulars. A group of high schoolers visiting him after school, always going for creamy tarts. A young, plump woman who loves everything cinnamon. An old gentleman who just wanted coffee and, of course, Geralt. The devilishly handsome man with a lovely little girl.

    Or, in which the love fool baker has to babysit Ciri, daughter of a short-tempered detective.

    Summary

    Geralt used to be tame, that was, before he met Jaskier. He had opened up a whole new world of sex and pleasure for him, and Geralt was hungry. Now, Geralt is ready to push boundaries with him and Jaskier wants it all. Geralt plans to have Jaskier in public this time.

    Summary

    “Really though, Jaskier,” Valdo says. “How?”
    “That’s a secret I’ll take to the grave, I’m afraid,” Jaskier grins. “Once I manage to reach it.”
    “Keep on with the bullshit, Jaskier,” Geralt growls, “and you can reach it tonight.”
    “Fifty years traveling with him, and he still thinks he can scare me. Cute, isn’t he?” Jaskier laughs. “Oh, Geralt you could never.”
    “Try me.”
    ***
    It's becoming harder and harder to ignore the fact that Jaskier doesn't seem to be aging. But the bard has a very good explanation for his apparent immortality. In fact, he has several, one more incredible than another.
    Which is precisely why Geralt doesn't believe a single one of them. The problem is, he has a reason why he simply needs to learn the truth...

    Summary

    Jaskier is half of an emerging folk-rock duo. Geralt is a legendary, but mostly retired, guitarist from the hair metal era that Jaskier very much had his sexual awakening to posters of. When Jaskier's record company asks who he'd collaborate with, if he could choose anyone, his answer was meant to be a joke.

    (Mostly I just think the 80's would have very much appreciated Geralt's headband)

    Summary

    After Ciri moved in with Geralt, she accepted that she'd be raised by a single father, and it was fine, really; Geralt was great. So she's not sure at first how to feel about Yennefer, Geralt's ex who seems to be interested in helping her out too.

    AKA 5 Times Ciri thought of Yennefer as her mom and one time she said it.

    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.

    Summary

    He swallows. “I’m… I’m one of Ciri’s guardians,” he says. It’s not technically a lie. He’s an adult, and Ciri lives with him and Geralt around half of the time. That must count for something. “Ciri lives with Ger… with Mr. Rivia and I. When she’s not with her mum, I mean.”

    Home alone, Jaskier receives a phone call from Ciri's school requesting a parent or guardian. Technically he's neither, but he's more than happy to tell a lie to make sure Ciri's alright. When he arrives at the school and realises Yen's been invited too, they're forced to put aside their animosity to form a united front against Ciri's awful headmaster... who's under the impression that Jaskier plays a far more important role in Ciri's life than he really does. Reposted as I'm splitting out an old collection of one-shots!

    Summary

    Yes, he wanted Jaskier. He dreamed often of Jaskier, thought of him whenever he wasn’t busy, and when they had still been working together he found his heart in his throat more than once, the dazzling cornflower blue eyes staring at him, Jaskier’s soft, brown hair flopping occasionally into his eyes.

    But there was a distance Jaskier carefully held. He was bright, loud, exuberant, always smiling, always talking. He was outgoing and extroverted and always looking at people, listening, always curious. But he had never cried in front of Geralt, not once. Not real tears, anyway. Whenever he seemed to be getting genuinely emotional about something, it was like a switch flipped and Jaskier became distant. Even when the voice operation had happened, and Jaskier was terrified internally, he didn’t open up about it.

    Pulling away had made sense at the time. He wanted Jaskier so badly, and yet he felt like he couldn’t trust him. He didn’t want to be vulnerable for him. But fucking hell, sometimes he regretted it. He may truly have lost his only opportunity.

    Summary

    The dragon hunt is over and it didn’t end anywhere near how anybody could possibly have expected, but at least Jaskier’s still by his side even if Borch is giving Geralt cryptic warnings that make him scared to let Jaskier out of his sight.

    He’s just about to write Borch’s warnings off as a worried imagination when Jaskier starts behaving strangely.

    Summary

    Jaskier was half way through a lackluster rendition of one of his least popular songs when his world went static.

    In his ears, a foreign heartbeat thundered, ragged and wounded. It felt as though his lungs had gone sideways with the sensation. Even the air itself tasted like it was charged with lightning, bright and bitter as ozone. Deep in his gut, he felt something urging himself forward, pulling him like some invisible string towards an unknown destination.

    Something brushed across his senses, rough as tree bark, and sinking into his skin to crawl like ants beneath. He froze, eyes darting around the room like he could spot whoever it was that had sent his senses scrambling against the hard earned shields he was always careful to maintain. In his hands, his fingers faltered, melody disappearing beneath the wave of wrong that felt like it was choking him.

    The answer was simple--and impossible.

    There was a Sentinel here.

    Summary

    A modern college AU!

    Jaskier is an art student, who moves across the Continent to run away from his troubled past (and also his parents) and start a new life.

    Geralt is a librarian at the university (at least during the day) and he immediately draws Jaskier's attention, as soon as he steps through the library's door.

    Summary

    Jaskier had been doing his best. Heartbreak and depression had given him the songs he'd played to take his career higher and higher-- until his band broke apart. Now alone, he's offered a job to manage the band of the man who broke his heart.

    The challenge of being a folk singer managing a heavy metal band may carry Jaskier into new discoveries, the least of them about music. Living on a tour bus with Lambert, Eskel, Geralt, and Vesemir is full of challenges and annoyances-- but perhaps something more can come from this. Healing, friendship... and maybe a love that blooms so slowly and naturally that it swallows them whole.

    Summary

    Jaskier is on a mission to find some important information from Lord Harnhem's estate and Geralt insists on going with him to protect him. The only problem is that Lord Harnhem doesn't allow witchers on his property without a human master to control them.

    Geralt immediately insists on pretending that Jaskier is his master, to make sure the bard is protected. If he likes wearing Jaskier's collar a little too much, well, that's his own business. There's no need to bother Jaskier about it.

    Geralt isn't good with words or gifts. But he can cook, and maybe (hopefully) that's enough.
