    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

    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

    Geralt moves one of his arms, strokes his hand down Jaskier's side to the curve of his hip. There's a scar there that he can't feel through the layers of Jaskier's clothes, but he can picture it perfectly, just under his palm.

    "It wasn't your fault," Jaskier whispers. He rests his hand on top of Geralt's, his slim, elegant fingers stroking over Geralt's skin.

    "Debatable," Geralt counters.

    "It is my pain, dear heart. They're my scars. Let me decide who's to blame for them," Jaskier says. "I regret many things in life, Geralt, but not you. And not my silence."

    ---

    Kaer Morhen is empty when they get there, the forests around the keep just turning red and yellow as the seasons start to change. Geralt's not used to returning home so early in the year. It's one of the many things that are different now.

    Summary

    “What do I smell like to you?”

    Geralt looked up from where he was sharpening a blade to frown at the bard. “What?”

    “You’re always sniffing around me,” Jaskier explained with a smile that covered the sheepish blush on his cheeks, “And I've read that Witchers have a keen sense of smell so tell me, what do I smell like to you?”

    Home.
    ___________________________

    After the mountain, Geralt faces the reality of what his temper has destroyed and tries to pretend like he's fine with that. (He isn't.)

    Summary

    Odmieniec [pol.] - a person who looks or behaves differently from other people; in Polish folk also a child of a demon or tutelary spirit tossed in the place of a stolen baby; a type of changeling.

    Geralt, Ciri and Yennefer make it to the safety of Kaer Morhen. It would seem the witcher can finally relax a little bit, but the nagging feeling at the pit of his stomach is still present. When Geralt realizes what causes his restlessness, he sets of to a long journey. The journey that will change into a rescue mission, reveal some truths and force the witcher to reflect on his feelings. All of that possibly with a happy ending. Although, it's hard for Geralt to believe in that.

    Summary

    Jaskier has a new look and Geralt isn’t coping all that well.

    *

    Geralt looked up at Jaskier. He looked-

    He looked-

    Well, he looked.

    Geralt gulped. He had seen Jaskier shirtless before, hadn’t he? He must have? At some point over the last 20 years, he must have seen Jaskier without his clothes on. If so, when had he grown those shoulders? Or those lovely calf muscles? Or the biceps currently shimmering in the midday light. Last summer, before they’d parted after the mountain, Geralt would have sworn Jaskier was the type of man who’s beard grew in straggly patches. He also could have sworn Jaskier had arms like wet noodles and legs like twigs. He would have been wrong.

    Summary

    Really, this was just marvellous! He hadn't even been looking for trouble! Barely two weeks without Geralt, and already he was in mortal peril!

     

    Jaskier leaves Geralt on the mountain, and almost instantly gets sucked into trouble, (through no fault of his own, he might add!) An encounter with a sorcerer leaves him temporarily stuck in a form he'd never really liked, and the whole godsdamned affair leaves him careering back into Geralt's life again.

    Which is ideal, really.

     

    Or, Geralt finds a wolf, and then he finds his bard again. It takes him a long time to work out the connection.

    Summary

    The only thing that kept Geralt going after losing Jaskier, first to his own harsh words and then to the turning of time, was that he knew the bard would want him to keep doing so.

    Now 800 years later, in modern Detroit, Geralt finally tries his hand at retirement, only to find that his new neighbour is someone he never hoped to see again.

    When they learn of the reason why Jaskier is still alive, they have to undertake a road trip together, to figure out how to resolve the soul bound they had accidentally formed all these years ago while struggling with their own feelings for each other.

    Summary

    Look, it fucking - it wasn't supposed to go like this, alright?

    The contract had said it was a chort, and even though Lambert knew - he fucking knew - that humans couldn't be trusted to know a griffin from a lubberkin even if it was biting them in the ass and they had a fucking bestiary in their fucking hands…

    He'd certainly paid the price for it now though, hadn't he? All he wanted to do now was collect what he was owed and find a healer. But of course things can't even be that simple - not for him - not when some bard goes and destroys his payment in a tavern brawl. Now instead of the supplies he needed, the village has saddled him with the same bard as a guide. Things can't possibly get any worse, right?

    Right?

    Summary

    “Mmm? Full moon?” Jaskier blinked, squinting against her neck. “Why tomorrow?” He asked with a pout, making the woman giggle as her hand slipped from his ribs and into his pants, grabbing a handful of the bard’s ass and squeezing it, listening to him gasp.

    “Anyone who can follow a Witcher for as long as you and not perish must have some sort of… ability, or tolerance. Stubbornness, perhaps?” she questioned offhandedly, not really expecting a response, and Jaskier hummed quietly. He pressed his face to her neck again, daring as he flicked his tongue out and licked along her neck, the action making her grin wide, flashing canines all too sharp and too large to be human.

    “Oh, yes. You will do lovely, dearest bard,” she said softly, pulling Jaskier along with her to a hidden hut in the woods.

    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

    "Other than cats, Dragons are the only creature that is known to absorb magical energy directly from their environment,” Villentretenmerth says.

    “Cats.” Jaskier’s question comes out flat. Villentretenmerth nods, sagely.

    “Cats,” he says. “Nobody knows what they do with it.” Jaskier feels a headache coming on.

    Summary

    It was one of Jaskier’s fancy, perfumed papers, the ones he only used for special occasions.

    It smelled, so faintly he had to rub his nose right against the porous surface of the sheet to get a whiff of it, of sandalwood and lavender.

    Summary

    There have always been holdouts, places - especially along the northern coast, growing worse the closer one gets to Blaviken - where even Jaskier's music and stories can't turn the villain into a hero, where they still spit the word with hate in their eyes.

    Butcher.

    But mostly, as long as he avoided those places, he no longer bore that hated moniker upon his shoulders. Because of Jaskier.

    So the first time he hears it again after leaving Caingorn (and the shattered shards of his heart) behind, it catches him off guard.
