    Summary

    Geralt finds Jaskier again for the first time since the dragon hunt in a marketplace not far from Oxenfurt. He apologizes, and they catch up in a tavern over ale. Geralt's been taking mundane contracts and wandering as always, Jaskier had been teaching for the winter and was just heading back on the road - and, oh yeah, he lost his hearing after the mountain. Geralt feels guilty, to say the least.

    Summary

    Geralt Left Jaskier behind after the mountain and that was supposed to be the end of it. But it wasn't and now Geralt cannot stop the steady stream of thoughts about the bard, and the sad song that he keeps hearing everywhere is not helping matters.

    Jaskier was lost after the mountain, and with little direction or motivation in his life anymore he mostly wallows in despair. He thinks of Geralt and all of the time that was lost to following and looking up to someone who had never cared about him.

    Summary

    Jaskier has always known he loves in a way that is too much. He gives too much of himself, and wants too much in return. This is how he copes with that; getting back with his abusive shit of an ex.

    ---
    Jaskier puffed his chest up, ready to launch into a diatribe on the injustices of surly barmaids when a hand reached in front of him to deposit several coins in front of him. “I’ll pay. Whatever our dear, disaster, Dandelion desires.”

    Oh god, thought Jaskier. I fucking hate alliteration.

    A bard who knew him, who called him Dandelion, the nickname only his classmates remembered.

    Shit and fuck, thought Jaskier succinctly, then turned to face his nemesis.

     

    “Hallo Valdo. Fancy meeting you here. Crippled Kate’s close early?”

    Summary

    Ciri looks to the witcher, giggling. “Did you know someone wrote a song about you?”

    Or, a collection of moments from Ciri’s travels with Geralt, and a look into Geralt and Jaskier’s relationship from her point of view.

    Summary

    Traveling with Jaskier again had come with caveats. There was less music, less smiles in their time alone on the road. The easy touches of before were gone but Jaskier was there. Parts at least. They had stayed in Kaer Morhen for the winter and it had been tense, the air charged with a waiting that Geralt couldn’t seem to name. He would watch from the corners as Jaskier lit up in conversation with the other Wolves or smiled warmly at Ciri, but when their eyes met, that light vanished from his face.

    Geralt had to tell himself that it didn’t hurt him nearly as much as it did or there was going to be no getting through it. He had needed Jaskier with him for Ciri’s sake, and nothing more since Geralt wasn’t in the habit of needing people for himself.

    Fuck, he needed Jaskier.

    Summary

    Geralt needs somewhere safe to take Ciri for the winter—it is too late to make it to Kaer Morhen—so they try to seek sanctuary at Oxenfurt. Unfortunately, the chancellor insists they only offer sanctuary to faculty and their families.
    Jaskier hasn't seen Geralt since the dragon hunt, but perhaps this will be a way to make up for his past failings as a companion. They just need to get married, and Geralt and Ciri will be safe.

    Or, Jaskier and Geralt get fake married so that Geralt and Ciri can claim sanctuary at Oxenfurt.

    Summary

    Geralt and Jaskier run into each other several years after the mountain. Much has changed.

    ...So much so that Geralt somehow fails to recognise Jaskier at all, much to the bards bemusement.

    Or

    That time that Jaskier went through a grunge phase after the mountain break up and Geralt doesn't recognise him, so he just sort of goes along with it.

    Summary

    Jaskier keeps bumping into injured Witchers while trying to mend his own broken heart. Geralt has conflicting feelings over seeing the signs of Jaskier's care on his family. Years after the mountain, the ever encroaching threat of Nilfgaard forces them back together and the heavy snows of winter at Kaer Morhen keep them that way.

    Maybe, just maybe, they can mend the friendship that was broken.

    (Maybe they can build something new together.)

    Summary

    A few years after the unfortunate adventure with the dragon hunt, Geralt accidentally runs into Jaskier in the exactly same tavern, where the said adventure began. Maybe it wouldn't be that surprising (we are talking about the travelling bard after all), if Jaskier didn't look and behave so strange. How else can you describe approaching the witcher without making any indication to what has happened on the top of a certain mountain and simply paying him for killing a monster?

    Summary

    Lambert finds Jaskier dying of sickness, alone in the wild, and brings him back to Kaer Morhen for the winter.

     

    "He's the one behind that damn song," Eskel explains. They all know which one; Lambert had laughed for days when Geralt returned one winter and bitched about a bard who wouldn't take a hint. The following year, the song seemed to travel with them, and in some places, people would suddenly shout, "Hey witcher!" And toss coins at him. Lambert stopped laughing after that. Things had been... difficult, after Geralt's actions at Blaviken. "Butcher," they called him, and "Murderer." Witcher became synonymous with killer. After Jaskier, he'd been hailed as a hero in places. "Friend of humanity!"

     

    That damn song.

     

    "I couldn't leave him to die," Lambert defends himself, although neither of them have accused him of anything. Vesemir glowers a moment, and then nods his assent.

     

    "Bring him inside; we'll see what we can do."

Thanks to an old friend, Geralt comes to his aid. While certain truths comes into light, it begs the question: will they meet again before Jaskier loses his sanity?

    Summary

    When running away from Nilfgaard leads Geralt and Ciri to the gates of Lettenhove, the Jaskier they meet is not the same person Geralt left on the mountaintop one year earlier. But with no options left, Geralt and Ciri must hide in plain sight while enemies come at them from all sides and Geralt struggles with admitting how he really feels for the man that was once his bard.

    Or, yet another adaptation of @spielzeugkaiser's amazing illustrated Undercover at Lettenhove!AU

    Geralt is forced to deal with how much he suffocates his emotions, and how to reach out to others when he needs help.

    Summary

    It was a dream location, with free food and free housing for six months in the ancient crumbling structure of Kaer Morhen for the cost of a final thesis project. Jaskier never expected to win the placement, when it was the most hotly contested application between graduates of the Seven Liberal Arts program. He didn't expect that old Vesemir's nephew would be so handsome, or antagonistic about outsiders. Jaskier had come to learn about the Witchers -an entire group that history had seemed content to forget -and bring them some recognition even if it was a millennia too late. Geralt was the only one who seemed opposed to Jaskier's education, whether it was sword fighting, lute playing or riding horseback -but Jaskier would prove him wrong. And sure, Jaskier didn't know what shape his final thesis would be -a collection of poetry, songs or a novel -but it would be dedicated to every Witcher he could learn about.

    And at the end of a summer of love and heartache, Jaskier's final project would be about one man who'd lived more than most.

    Summary

    Jaskier hadn't meant to get involved with another Witcher, but what else was he to do now that he had left Geralt behind? He still craved the adventure, the tales he could spin into song. Lambert provided that and so much more. He supposed it was only a matter of time before he ran into Geralt again, he just wondered if his heart could take it.
