    Summary

    Unbetayed, short Song fic. Written by a sleep deprived student at 3 a.m. With English not as the first language. Ye be warned. Set after episode 1x06. I just imagined it would be something Jaskier would compose and sing as he walks alone on his way down from the mountain.

    Summary

    “Witcher. I found you.”

    It’s faint as a whisper. The brushing of lips against the Witcher’s ear. Reverent.

    "Jaskier?” Geralt whispers, echoing the softness of the bard’s voice. But only darkness lay behind him and his Witcher eyes reveal only nature living behind him. Even the leaves at his feet remain undisturbed; no footprints in the damp mud leading towards or away.

    Summary

    Despite what his outward code of conduct would have you thinking, Jaskier knows when he is not wanted.

    He allows himself the exact amount of three days of wallowing in that small town before he packs his meager possessions and hits the road like nothing happened. In those three days he sings and dances for his food and drink, fucks the pretty barmaid and sleeps off the hangover before heading out in the morning of the fourth day. He travels alone for the first time in a while but it’s alright.

    Now, if only people would stop telling him that the Witcher asks about him - that'd be swell.

    Summary

    After Geralt blames Jaskier for everything, the bard leaves. He will not cry, he will not break down. He's much more than Geralt's useless companion and he will not let the Witcher ruin him. It's a stroke of luck that he meets another Witcher in Oxenfurt, and finally finds out what's it like to be openly called a friend.
    Then, they decide to spend winter in Kaer Morhen, and Coën isn't the only Witcher who goes there.
    It may be Geralt's only chance to apologize to his bard, his friend, his everything. 13 years is a long time to ponder one's mistakes and now, Geralt is desperate to fix what he broke.

    Summary

    “Another.”

    “Don’t you think you should slow down, Bard? This is the sixth time I served you this hour,” the old man behind the counter said as he leaned his elbow on the aged wood to reach over and take the Bard’s empty tankard.

    Jaskier hiccupped a laugh and pushed the tankard toward the old man’s reach, “I don’t [hiccup] care, keep em’ coming.”

    "At first, Geralt had tried to get over everything like nothing happened. He went back to killing monsters, drinking and sleeping with whores. He thought it would fill the immense void his dispute with Jaskier had left inside him.

    It didn’t.

    To his own surprise, he missed the annoying bard. Dearly. "

    Summary

    Jaskier has made plenty of mistakes in his long life. Most of which include sleeping with married women, admittedly, but one of the worst mistakes he has ever made was following Geralt of Rivia like a lost puppy. The worst mistake he's ever made in over 80 years of living... and the best.

    Summary

    Jaskier only smiles, offering Geralt a wink as his voice carries over the noise of the tavern. Something old and forgotten stirs in his chest every time he catches Geralt’s eye, carrying warmth throughout his body. And as he notices the smallest twitch of a smile in Geralt’s face, Jaskier allows himself to indulge.

    Summary

    “What is to know?” Jaskier murmured once, annoyed. He tossed a small stone in the crackling fire before him. His blue gaze focused on the golden hue of the flames, resembling Geralt’s own fiery eyes. Turning away he said, “I will no longer follow him. I have but one more song for this witcher, then I too will move forward.”

    “Then, sing, bard,” one man huffed into his dented tankard. He then wiped his bearded mouth against his filthy sleeve. “One song for the meal and cold earth shared this night.”

    AKA: A long drabble of the aftermath of Geralt's rant to Jaskier in 1x06 "Rare Species" because Jaskier deserved better. Also, I'm going to start reading the books, lol!
