    Summary

    All magic has a price – this is something as true of Signs as any other spell. Following an exhausting fight, racist villagers capture the injured Witcher and bard, Geralt locked in irons while Jaskier is treated by a mage. Determined to release the human of the mutant’s thrall by any means necessary, the villagers turn to extreme measures. Jaskier must fight through chaotic amnesia and newly learned fears to save someone he doesn’t remember.

    Or: Geralt gets his facial scars, adds a few more elsewhere to his collection, and tries to stay alive long enough for Jaskier to remember that they aren’t friends, but brothers.

    Summary

    Sofia has waited patiently for her Soulmate. Geralt and Jaskier found each other but something is missing. Could taking this young Fae halfling to her Soulmate help the couple forget the void? Why did her laugh make Jaskier write ballads and Geralt's lips twitch? Why did the presence of the bard and Witcher make her feel at home? And who invited the Vampire?

    I'm bad at summaries but I promise its better than it sounds. Scouts honor.

    Summary

    “Geralt?”
    He looks up and meets Jaskier’s eyes through the darkness. He is still on his knees, hands clenched in his lap. Geralt slowly lowers the bag.
    “Can I ask you something odd?”

    Can be read as a stand alone but is a continuation of Taste of Apples.

    Summary

    “We were supposed take a scenic route through Erlenwald, not take up four of our traveling days hunting-” he cut himself off, a furrow setting into his brow as he squinted toward the tracks that lay in front of Geralt. “What exactly are we hunting again?”

     

    “A garkain.” Geralt spoke thoughtfully. “Possibly a fleder.”

    Summary

    There was something ugly churning in Geralt's gut watching all those nobles flock around Jaskier. Fawning, complimenting, flirting.

    Jaskier should be thriving and preening from all the attention. Instead there was something uncomfortable and pinched in his expression, skillfully masked behind playful smiles and bright laughs.

    Geralt didn't want to contemplate why he, and only he, noticed the bard's wish to run.

    Summary

    "A tattered white wedding dress draped over a ghastly form comprising loose yellowish skin stretched over bone, and a dark void of a mouth consuming more than its fair share of space on the woman’s face. She disappeared momentarily, then manifested again right next to Jaskier. The bard felt a bony hand grip his arm and then he was stamping his feet and clapping his hands, lute discarded along with his satchel as he danced alongside the weary farmer and the horrifying wraith who controlled them. A cry for help left his lips and echoed across the field."

    Jaskier is bespelled by a noonwraith into dancing himself to death and female!Geralt comes to the rescue. She delivers him safely to a nearby town and departs, assuming that's the last she will see of the dark-haired bard with the enticing rosin-and-honey scent. But their paths will cross again.

    Summary

    After returning with Geralt from Sodden, Ciri finds herself distanced from the man who is supposed to be her father. Confused about her past and searching for answers about her own abilities, as well as why Geralt seems so distant, Ciri turns to the other Witchers for help. However, when Geralt asks her to come with him on a trip into the mountains, Ciri sees a chance to finally get to know her new father better. On the road, though, things take a turn for the worse.

    This story is inspired heavily by my relationship with my own dad, and is an excuse for Geralt to finally open up to Ciri and understand that good family relationships involve giving on both sides.

    Summary

    After a nasty spell leaves Jaskier mute, Geralt is left having to awkwardly navigate the sudden change in their dynamic as he determinedly scours for a solution. Ex-lovers, powerful curses and estranged family aside, it's becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the building tension between them without Jaskier's usual leviety and wit.

    Geralt never thought he would see the day where Jaskier's frivolous, never-ending commentary would be preferable to the sweet sound of blessed silence, but here they are.

    Summary

    ”And if it's… not just a flower?” Jaskier asks. ”And if it's not the djinn and not.. Yennefer.” It's hard not to spit out her name. The elf obviously harbors feelings for her and it seems unwise to upset him. ”What is it?”
    The elf hesitates, twirling the petal between his fingers.
    ”Tell me, bard. Is there elven blood in your family?”

    Summary

    Jaskier pouted at the lack of attention, feathers ruffling up more in displeasure and annoyance. Really, the fucking song was about him. The least he could do was pay attention.

    Summary

    Geralt has definitely made plenty of enemies over the many years of his existence as a Witcher. The crudest of labels - mutant, monster, butcher - have rolled of the tongues of nearly all humans that saw him. There was but one person - a sweet, beautiful bard - who never viewed him as such atrocities. Geralt never understood why Jaskier cared so much for him.

    The only thing he understood less than that was how unreasonably in love he was with Jaskier.

    But the last time the Witcher allowed himself to be vulnerable, it ended in disaster the day he was dubbed the "Butcher of Blaviken". Geralt thought it best to deny his feelings after that - or, at the very least, to hide them.

    It seemed unthinkable that anyone would ever target Jaskier in order to get to Geralt, nor to take any brutal measures to silence him...

    ...But what if the unthinkable happened?

    How would Jaskier deal with losing what he built his life around - his voice? Would Geralt remain steadfast at Jaskier's side and do everything he could to undo the damage, or would guilt end up destroying him? Can a lovestruck Witcher and silent bard - their very existences being oxymoronic - ever recognize their feelings for each other?
