    Summary

    It's not the first time Jaskier's been thrown in jail. But it's the first time he's shared a cell with anyone other than a drunk. The Witcher tossed in with him is unlike anyone's he's ever met, and just when Jaskier's curiosity rises to the surface, the Witcher makes a run for it - with Jaskier in tow.

    He started the night in a cell, and now he's wound up in the *very* sturdy arms of a Witcher. Well, that was unexpected.

    Summary

    In another life, Jaskier’s last coin may have landed heads up and he’d have gone to Posada to play in front of adoring (or at least non hostile) crowds. But no, it had landed on tails and he’d turned his boots towards the capital of Aedirn. And was promptly chased up a tree by feral slavering beasts.

    Or:

    Jaskier meets Eskel first instead of Geralt. A story told in drabbles.

    Summary

    Eskel caught another bit of movement in the field and saw a brown horse grazing near the man. The horse was handsome and well cared for with a white star on its forehead. He drew in his breath quickly and studied the scene carefully. That horse looked very much like Roach, Geralt’s mount. As a matter of fact, it looked exactly like Roach if he was honest with himself

    Eskel’s heart started to sink towards his stomach. He could only think of one reason that a strange man could have Roach, and that Roach would be allowing him to care for her. He tried to push away the thought, but with each moment Eskel became more and more sure of the terrible truth.

    ***

    When Eskel comes across a strange man sitting comfortably with Roach, he knows that his greatest fear has come true. His brother Geralt would never give up his horse, and with Roach accepting this new owner it can only mean one thing, that Geralt has fallen on the path. Mourning his brother’s death, he knows he needs to speak to the man to find out what happened, but of course, things end up getting complicated, and Eskel is in for the surprise of his life.

    Part of a series of stand alones where Roach introduces Jaskier to our Witchers.

    Summary

    “Who the fuck are you?” the sentinel demanded.

    It shouldn’t have been charming to watch the stranger glower at him while he dangled by one leg. Especially not when Aiden was still trying to decide how or if he should go about killing him.

    The guide gave the other Witcher a wicked smirk. “I’m the man hired to kill you.”
    _______________________________

    Or, Aiden takes a job that ends with him bonding with two Wolves.

    **This can be read as a stand alone fic, or as part of the Sentinels/Guides universe.**

    Summary

    When Geralt desperately accepted a contract to get rid of a dragon, he had no intention of actually killing it, only wanting to chase it away. What he hadn't taken into consideration, however, was that he didn't know much about dragons, and he definitely hadn't been expecting this one to want to keep him, much to his chagrin.

    ~

    “Hush now, it’s ok,” a deep, rumbling voice came from above his head, startling him. It was the dragon’s voice, he realized, and he was even more startled to feel a large, warm hand gently stroking the side of his face.

     
    The man – dragon – didn’t look dangerous right now, but Geralt knew better than to believe he didn’t want to harm him. He could still feel his medallion pressed against his chest, and even though it wasn’t vibrating that didn’t mean that there was no threat.

    Summary

    ‘Our little pup went down for the first time today.’ Eskel says fondly, adding a good spoonful of honey to the pot and giving it a stir. Jaskier stops pulling away from Geralt to look at Eskel, confused.

    Down?

    He doesn’t know what that means.

    Geralt’s hand drops from Jaskier’s cheek and he turns to look at Eskel. ‘Oh yeah?’

    ‘Yeah. You should have seen him, Wolf. He was perfect, playing with his toys.’

    Oh, right. That.

     

     

    Jaskier adjusts to his life as a kidnap victim.

    Summary

    ‘Thanks for the food, really hit the spot. I do need to get going though.’ Jaskier says, reaching for the door handle. He pulls- and nothing happens.

    Damn it. The car has a childlock.

    ‘Ah, would you mind?’ Jaskier asks hopefully, trying not to let the panic seep into his voice.

    ‘You don’t really want to go back out into the rain do you?’ Geralt asks, a strange look crossing his face that Jaskier doesn’t like.

    ‘Yes, I think I would.’ Jaskier replies lightly, trying the door again, just in case.

    Geralt just hums, the sound sending shivers down Jaskier’s spine for all the wrong reasons. It dawns on Jaskier then, that he’s locked in a car, with a stranger almost twice his size, and he has no idea of the man’s intentions. The window looks solid, and Jaskier doubts he could break it if he tried.

    Fuck, he’s an idiot.

    ‘Geralt, seriously, open the door.’

     

    Witchers can't have children. Geralt improvises.

    Summary

    Running from a band of thieves in the woods at the border to Kaedwen, the last thing Jaskier expected was to be saved by Witchers, and the Warlords no less. Never in a million years would he have guessed that they were Caregivers, or that they’d want to keep him.

    Summary

    Ten years ago, Geralt nearly killed Jaskier for want of a few hours' rest. In a moment of panic and desperation, he'd wished for a piece of the bard that he could take with him forever--something that would transcend the inevitability of his death. The djinn granted him Hadria--a baby djinn, who bears his blood and Jaskier's.

    Eight years later, Geralt abandons them both on the side of the mountain after the disastrous dragon hunt. He tells himself that they'll be fine, so long as they stick together. And he might've been right, had Nilfgaardian soldiers not kidnapped Jaskier.

    This year, when he arrives at Kaer Morhen... it's to anger and contempt, as he's forced to face the consequences of his actions head-on. The family he abandoned is broken--and not all of their wounds are immediately apparent. The family he brings with him is also broken--and unlikely to find quarter amongst angry Witchers out for blood.

    Geralt's apology is long overdue... but is it too little, too late?

    --

    There's a bard loose in Kaer Morhen. If you listen closely, you can hear him sobbing.

    Summary

    Eskel finally finds what he was looking for. On the road there, the Cat gets a little bit better every day.

    Eskel might, however, be having some kind of identity crisis. Maybe? Maybe it’s existential? He doesn’t even know what’s going on right now.

    Summary

    Ever since Geralt met Eskel, he knew he'd never want to part from him- wintering at Kaer Mohren became precious, when he did have to separate from his fellow witcher. As Geralt reconnects with a bard he has wronged, and a mage who was still on a journey of regaining something she lost, he realizes just how much he loves Eskel, and needs a lot of help in doing something about it.

    Summary

    Eskel had always tried to ignore his classification as a caregiver, since it would be almost impossible to take care of a little and be a Witcher at the same time, but when Vesemir asked him to take in Geralt, a neglected little he vaguely remembered from his childhood at Kaer Morhen, Eskel found himself unable - and unwanting - to say no. He resolved to do everything in his power to make Geralt feel safe and protected, to offer him a family and a home.
