    Summary

    Jaskier, as always, is along for the ride on one of Geralt’s contracts in a faraway kingdom. In the midst of it all, he finds that his wandering affections have settled on one woman - he is falling for the reader, a mysterious and elusive servant girl in the royal household.

    It seems she knows more about this dark magic that keeps the kingdom in fear than she is willing to tell. The closer Geralt gets to uncovering the mystery, the further Jaskier feels from the truth, both about the monster and his lover's affections. What does this mean for his aching heart?

    Summary

    The problem wasn’t really the talking. Geralt had heard humans talking constantly every time he’d been within a quarter-mile of civilization his entire adult life. No, it wasn't the talking at all. The trouble with Jaskier was that he cared about the answers.

    In which Geralt learns to face himself, his relationships, and his place in a human-dominated world. Taking place in the gap between the meeting in Posada and the banquet in Cintra, this story explores growth, trauma recovery, mental health, friendship, family, and societal bigotry.

    Summary

    Witchers feel emotions, Renfri wasn't a monster, Roach is chill, Geralt prefers nonhuman company and lies a lot, Jaskier is generally good at people but is happy to ignore what they say, Yennefer's life is abuse piled atop abuse with a sprinkle of ethnic cleansing and a complete lack of choice, Istredd's life likely wasn't much better, Tissaia does not know what she's doing, Triss is lying about being assigned to cure the princess, Jaskier is surprisingly tolerant of Geralt getting him on Calanthe's shitlist, Kalis was in a bad situation and didn't rise above it, it really shouldn't surprise people Yennefer gets weird about having a kid, rogue mages are afraid of the Brotherhood but it seems to be a paper tiger, Jaskier took being dumped by the countess really hard but despite his own problems he's concerned for Geralt, Geralt was fine with having sex with Yennefer but concerned she had some other plot. Yennefer doesn't believe anyone cares about her or could possibly care about her.

    Ch25: Geralt lives in a world where people so constantly do things he considers monstrous he's given up on even mentioning it to them, and this episode takes place in the shadow of that mental weight.

    Summary

    In which modern Witcher Geralt and modern music professor Jaskier are thrown back in time, sentenced to death, pose as powerful warlocks, learn the importance of Freshman Astronomy 101, discover the origins of a 6th century Redanian poem, and legalize gay marriage in Camelot through the power of Geralt's magic cum.

    None of this is Jaskier's fault.

    (Or, the Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court AU nobody asked for.)

    Summary

    Lieutenant Julian Alfred Pankratz of the Imperial Army shot bolt upright in bed at the beeping of a comm.

    His free hand scrambled for it, caught up in the tangle of blankets that he’d not quite deigned to return after his assignment to that blasted ice planet, muttering curses to himself to try and clear the grogginess from his voice as he fumbled his way to the device.

    “Shit, shit, shit, shit- Hello, Lieutenant Pankratz, what is it?”

    A familiar voice rang through the comm. “Congratulations, Lieutenant.”

    “Congratulations?” Julian asked, biting back a yawn as he sat up, back straight as a steel rod, as though his posture would compensate for the fact that he was, in fact, still in his underwear, tangled up in a blanket, in his bed, as he spoke to his commanding fucking officer.


    The inception of a rebellion fighting against the Galactic Empire is no surprise. Less expected, of course, is where local head-up-his-arse Imperial officer Julian Pankratz’s loyalties ended up lying.

    But that’s just part of the intrigue.

    Summary

    After death, what comes next? Eternal life in the afterworld? Purgatory? Reincarnation? Oh, hohohohaha — no. The business policy of afterlife is as follows: non-existent. Their only philosophy: some problems resolve themselves, life resolves the rest. What shouldn't happen, but does happen: administrative errors. And here, in life... there is nobody to deal with administrative errors.

    — Julian Alfred Pankratz, Viscount de Lettenhove, barely ten, looks like twelve, actually in his late sixties.
     

    Or: Julian died with a smile on his face, a stilletto between the ribs and a couple of regrets (the irony wasn't lost on him here), before getting reborn with all memoies of his previous life intact and the determination to never regret again.

    Summary

    “Say twenty years ago? Before the summer solstice I think. You’d fought a queen kikimore that day,” Jaskier murmurs, tugging thin blankets over them. “Anyways, you need to sleep.” 

    Geralt’s brows furrow before he relaxes into the bedroll. “Fucking Infinite Knowledge Sponge,” he curses, no heat behind it.

    Jaskier snickers, gentle as he curls in closer to his friend. “You’re alive ‘cause I’m a nerd. Now shut up and sleep.”

    Or, Geralt gets hurt and Jaskier knows what to do.

    Summary

    Geralt felt his throat close up, looking at the bard.

    "Please let me come," he'd managed to choke out, just barely, before his eyes had started to well up, his chubby hands finding the strap of the bag hanging from his shoulder. "I don't know what to do with myself. I think another night on my own might kill me, " he’d whispered wide eyed, almost as if in awe, almost as if he were realizing it himself just now. 

    Awe, Geralt knew, was very close to terror. 

    *

    Why, exactly, does Jaskier follow Geralt around after meeting him at that tavern, when Geralt treats him so poorly? Is it masochism? Is it a crush? Is it daddy issues? A thirst for adventure?
