    Summary

    she remembers words from long ago, remembers a song. a gentle melody, about a shrike and a wolf, and later, of a lark. and she remembers humming it under her breath, calling herself a wolf princess, because she's always been wild, always been untamed, and her brother, her lark hummed with her.

    her brother, who spoke in bright words and sang of dark days, who's songs sometimes came true.

    because renfri is not the only seer in her family, though, she is the only one they hunted.

    after all, the curse of the black sun only brought concern for daughters, so what should a bright eyed little boy have to do with it? why should a child who only laughs be caught up among monsters?

    ~~

    renfri is a seer, seeing things that are yet to happen, and sometimes the things that julian sings come true.

    Summary

    This is Eskel’s POV of chapters 1-7 of Part 1: A Hard Sell. I don’t think you HAVE to read that first, but it will probably be more fun that way.

    Eskel is pining hard for Lambert, but he suspects Lambert has feelings for Jaskier.

    Summary

    He falls, trying to traverse the stone prison in his new body.

     

    Standing straight, feet placed flatly against the cobble, his weight tips dangerously backwards. The stance, and his balance in it, is unfamiliar. When he leans against the wall, sweating profusely as he struggles to support his own weight, he feels himself going backwards. Falling, repeatedly.

     

    Geralt wakes up from the Trial of the Grasses in a new body.

    OR

    The story of how Geralt endures his treatment at Kaer Morhen and the years before he meets Jaskier.

    Summary

    "Toss a coin to your Witcher, oh valley of plenty-" Ambrose grimaced when her ears were immediately assaulted by a symphony of slurred, off-key voices that boisterously sang along with the flamboyant Bard. He was expertly strumming his lute, a shit-eating grin taking up the lower half of his face at the enthusiasm he was receiving from his inebriated audience.

    Summary

    It started after Blaviken.

    Geralt is tired. He's tired of being spat on and stoned. He's tired of being the Butcher. He's tired of being Geralt. It only gets worse after he meets a certain bard and starts wondering... what would it be like, to live like that?

    It isn't long before he decides there's only one way to find out.

    Summary

    "Name one Witcher who was happy." Flower challenged, turning to look Geralt straight in the eyes, "You can't."

    "I can't," Geralt said, not spending more than a second of thought on the subject. No Witcher is truly meant to be happy, but that doesn't mean they can't be.

    "They never let you be a hero and happy," Flower sighed, tossing a rock with more strength than the rest.

    "Can I tell you a secret?" Geralt asks, thinking back to that night, years ago when Flower had told him about Eskel and his secret.

    "What?"

    "I'm going to be the first." He said, self-assured after seeing how Flower had helped Eskel, that if he had that too he would be the first happy hero.

    "Swear it." He asks, his tone taking on a serious lilt to it.

    "Why me?" Flower asks, turning again to face Geralt, his blue eyes squinting at him.

    "Because you're the reason. Now swear it," Again, he asked, happy that the comment had made Flower smile even a little.

    Summary

    Jaskier has had nightmares for a long time, it's about time someone has told him it's ok.

    Basically this whole fic is about Jaskier having nightmares and wanting to hide that from Geralt, because vulnerability, umm we don't know her, especially Jaskier. Of course though, how can you hide anything from a Witcher? Obviously Geralt finds out eventually. Softness and tenderness ensues I promise ;).

    Summary

    “What is this?” Vesemir asked after he took a quick glance at their hostage.
    “Trouble” Eskel answered, sharply.
    Lambert bared his teeth.
    “We found this little shit at the club. He killed two of your boys and injured another two before we could even lay a finger on him. He fucking bit me” he said harshly, shaking the boy slightly “And the bastard keeps smiling like it’s fucking Disneyland and I’m Mickey fucking Mouse”
    Vesemir opened his mouth to answer, his face becoming increasingly concerned and angry with every word Lambert said, but the boy was quicker.
    “I was looking forward to meet you”

    --
    After some troubles at the club, Lambert and Eskel bring someone back with them. But maybe the lark they caught out of the nest is not lost at all.

    Summary

    Lambert splays his hands. “Stay for an hour,” he repeats, “and if you hate it as much as you think you’re going to, then you can leave.""

    Lambert slaps a hand on to Geralt’s shoulder. He leans over, lowering his voice. “It’s my job to make sure you don’t look so fucking grumpy all of the time,” he lulls, only sitting back when the bar comes into view. Geralt tries not to roll his eyes. Of course. Of course he would bring him here.

    --

    Mob Boss Geralt is brought to the Rosemary and Thyme Bar, where he meets with an alluring Jaskier; who has a new work proposition.

    Summary

    They're both idiots in love
    Excerpt:
    This time he whispers silently, the hand on Jaskier’s arm has now raised up. Up to the Bard’s cheek and there it rests gently.

    Softly enough that Jaskier might move away if he wishes to, but firm enough that Jaskier finds himself helplessly leaning into that warm calloused heat.

    “You fool, you love me don’t you?”

    Summary

    Geralt starts noticing some odd things, after he meets the bard.

    Content notes: There is a reference to off-screen child death.

    I tend to mash source material together and pick out what works. Although some of the dialogue/first meeting here is via Netflix, there are nods to the books and games as well.

    Summary

    Students are turning up missing at Oxenfurt University. One of them is a student of Jaskier’s. Given how poorly the school administration and university security are handling the whole affair, Jaskier is not terribly surprised when his missing student’s mother shows up looking for answers.

    He is, however, very fucking surprised when it turns out that she brought three witchers with her.

    Especially since witchers do not fucking exist.
