    Summary

    Waking up from a strange dream, Geralt finds himself on the mountain, in the middle of the dragon hunt. A strange voice in his dream had promised him another chance, but Geralt has no idea what that’s supposed to mean. All he knows is that if he makes the wrong choices, something terrible might happen to Jaskier.

    And that’s where you come into play, dear reader. You see, we all know Geralt might need a little help in making the right choices during the dragon hunt and in this choose-your-own-adventure-fic, you get to play Destiny. You may try your hand at preventing the mountain-fight from ever happening. Or maybe you’d rather help Geralt earn his bard’s forgiveness after he had broken his heart with his cruel words?

    Both is possible, but be warned: Though some choices will lead to happiness and healed hearts, others may lead to worse fates than broken hearts. After all, there are many dangers waiting for our favourite bard and witcher on a mountain full of aggressive competitors, treacherous shortcuts and cursed treasures…

    Summary

    The following character depictions are cherry picked and taped together from all of the aspects of every medium that spoke to me, like a patchwork quilt of violence and unfiltered adoration, but I’ve only seen the N version, read one short story featuring best girl, and played five minutes of Game 3, in English, and five more in polish lol. This world of prose is made of chaos and wiki searches, but I don’t mind, and I'm sorry if you’re bored, but I’m boring and like daily life things even if I’m not very good at them, and people tend to wander around without a mission in my stories. whoops. Welcome to the taiga of free wandering imagination. Good day.

    Summary

    “C-calm myself?” Jaskier went from terrified and confused to absolutely furious in the blink of an eye.
    His entire posture changed, his shoulders squaring, his hands balling into fists, his jaw clenching, his lip curling in a snarl. Something in his eyes flashed. Something that wasn’t quite human.
    “Are you fucking kidding me Geralt?” he spat, “I’m a monster. You let me feed off you rather than letting me die and now I’m a fucking monster. Just breathe Jaskier. You’ll be okay Jaskier. I just-I can’t-“ his hands flew to his hair and he pulled hard, a barked out laugh falling from him and he sank to his knees, the laugh cracking along with his expression and tears spilled down his cheeks, curling forward until his head bumped off the floor, hands still fisted in his dark locks.
    “I don’t want to be a monster Geralt,” he sobbed, “I don’t want to be a monster.”

    Summary

    “I’m heading to Kaer Morhen,” he tells him in the dark. Jaskier hums, curiosity guarded. “Come with me.”

    And Jaskier says, “I’ll think about it.”

    And it’s enough.

    Or: After the mountain, Geralt finds Jaskier.

    Summary

    ‘What the fuck are you angry about then?’ asked Jaskier.

    ‘You said,’ said Geralt, in a low, dangerous tone of voice, ‘that you loved me. And that you weren’t sure you were coming back. And then you left.’

    ‘Ah,’ said Jaskier. ‘Are we ... talking about that, then?’

    Summary

    After the incident that shall not be named and certainly not discussed, the incident that
    happened on the mountain and crushed Jaskier’s heart into tiny particles of dust, he
    travelled alone. He told himself that he had done it before and he could do it again. He
    forced himself to sing and to play, performing in all the big cities and some smaller, and for
    a while, for a long while he was worried that he would never experience the rush of
    pleasure that he usually got from performing. But little by little the joy returned, not so
    bright as it had once been but enough to be a comfort to him and to make him get through
    the days and the nights that were suddenly so much lonelier than before.

    Of course it was then, when he had started to heal from the incident that shall not be
    named, that he was kidnapped. A cruel trick of the universe, if there ever was one.

    Summary

    Eskel is rarely—if ever—truly angry. He is frequently, fondly, exasperated—with Jaskier, with their pretty little baby (their sweet little angel, the light of Eskel’s life, who wasn’t his by blood but was his in every way that actually counted; their precious little girl, whom Geralt no longer had any viable claim to, whom he’d abandoned on the mountain alongside Jaskier, and yet…), with his brothers. But this… this is so far beyond anger, the word doesn’t even begin to touch on the maelstrom of emotions swirling inside of the alpha. Calling it anger seems to cheapen it, in a way… but it’s the only word Jaskier knows that even begins to touch on all of this.

    He is angry at Geralt… at Jaskier… and at himself. And the sheer acidic stench of it is enough to make Jaskier feel like he can’t breathe.

    Gods, this is all Jaskier’s fault.

    --

    Jaskier loves two alphas. And, by the end of winter, he may end up losing them both.

    Summary

    How many Julian Pankratz could there be in all the world, let alone in Redania, let alone in Lettenhove? Even if he kicked Geralt out on his ear—and that would be his right, after the mountain, after all this time—even if he refused the witcher, Jaskier would shelter Ciri. Geralt knew it in his heart and his soul and his very bones. Jaskier would keep her safe, and get her to the other wolves, or to Yennefer.

    With winter swift approaching, and a scared, starving child to care for, a half-dead Geralt of Rivia has no choice but to seek aid from the last person who wants to give it: Viscount Julian Alfred Pankratz.

    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 without even travelling together, 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 succeeded in the slightest.

    Summary

    Someone is knocking on the large, wooden double doors that serve as the entrance to Kaer Morhen. In the middle of winter. In the middle of a blizzard.

    The witchers move almost as one, grabbing their weapons. They make their way to the door, Geralt stepping up and preparing to open it as the others fall into formation behind him, ready for a fight. Geralt opens the door.

    On the other side, Geralt sees… well, Geralt thinks he sees Jaskier, though he looks different, very different. Smells different, even.

    “Jaskier?” Geralt asks, startled.

    Jaskier smiles widely at him. Terrifyingly, there is blood in his teeth.

    “I brought you a present,” Jaskier says, nonsensically.


    For years, Jaskier has been silently telling Geralt he loves him. Only, certain secrets have always prevented Geralt from understanding. But now those secrets are out, and there are two cats loose in Kaer Morhen.

    Summary

    After birthing himself from a fresh grave lifetime-decades ago, Jaskier has played the bard across the continent. He is content because he is who he chooses to be: safely forgettable; a weed who makes music.

    … Until the witcher, and the child surprise. Until the war. If he runs from his birthright, he risks the lives of everyone whom he ever held dear. If he embraces it – he loses them anyway.

    Summary

    “Monster in Death’s Holt” Geralt read, voice monotone. Jaskier laughed before realising the witcher wasn’t joking.

    Summary

    All of Jaskier’s performances were different. Each and every one of them held a certain tone, provoking the purest emotions possible. Eskel had heard the bard perform before but had never been too affected, call it witcher mutations or decades of witnessing the worst horrors, whatever. However, Jaskier wasn't called the best troubadour of his age for nothing…

    Summary

    Jaskier passed Roach as he went down the path. He figured Geralt won't come down for another while, he'd probably expect Jaskier to be long gone. Even with his witcher speed and stamina, Jaskier knew their paths wouldn't cross. Not that day. Perhaps not ever. 

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Or, Jaskier adopts a new identity, inherits a brothel, travels alone, and reunites with Geralt and his child surprise. Not necessarily in that order.

    .
    Things had been different since the mountain. Geralt was sure that it was his fault, that he had brought it about with his harsh words, but he had no idea how to fix it.
