    Summary

    Outside the moon hung like engorged fruit, dripping with summer light. Too bright. Geralt squeezed his eyes shut and hated the pupils that he had yet to govern correctly. He was eighteen – nineteen? Fuck, he couldn’t remember – but here he was, bedfellows with bad dreams and weaknesses.

    “Nightmare?” Eskel’s voice was little more than a whisper, but Geralt flinched at the sound of it anyway. He hadn’t heard his best friend’s awakening. Thought he’d been quiet enough to prevent it.

    “Sorry.” Geralt said, shame curling within him.

    “Geralt.” Eskel sighed. “What have I told you? I don’t care what the masters say. I get the dreams, too.”

    Or: Geralt has a nightmare, and Eskel provides comfort that turns into something more.

    Summary

    Jaskier travels alone now, until he bumps into a new witcher at a new inn. He decides to talk to him, because, really, what has he to lose? Eskel is nice, much nicer than Geralt...he lets Jaskier unleash some emotional baggage and let's him get in a cuddle. Witchers are so very touch starved. Jaskier is tired of traveling alone, so he invites himself into this new witchers life. It takes Eskel far, far to long to realize who Jaskier actually is...like, a year. Jaskier doesn't help.

    ---

    This is literally just going to be a self indulgent, headcanon-y, trope filled, all kinds of everything fic, so that I can work on writing and have something to do during the day. Beware of comma overdose...And the serious tense changes. No beta unfortunately.

    Summary

    Eskel contemplated his next move. This captive woman had just taken down five men single handedly. She had moved with precision, killed with practiced movements. She was a professional.

    She was facing her horse, working at her saddlebags when Eskel stepped noiselessly into the clearing, sword in hand, She whirled around, brandishing her own sword in hand. Metal clanged together and her eyes, full of fire met his.

    They stood like this for a full breath. The fire in her eyes dampened and she lowered her sword.

    “A Witcher... this is certainly turning into an interesting evening.” She raised one eyebrow almost imperceptibly. “I’ve no quarrel with you or your guild Master Witcher. I would ask you to stand down and let me carry on with my business.”

    Eskel stared at her, sword still raised. Unsure what to say. After three heart beats the best he could muster was “You’re… you’re wounded.”

    But danger doesn't care if you have a protector to watch over you. Jaskier is so used to running and looking behind he forgets to look where he's running too and sometimes fate takes mercy on you in unexpected ways.
