    Summary

    From Jaskier, at least, it is friendship--love--unreturned but no less powerful because of it. He will still give his life for Geralt if it comes to it, and for all the witchers he’s never met who call Kaer Morhen their home. Their stronghold is Jaskier’s unfortunate secret to keep, and he will.

    ~*~

    In the wake of the events on the mountain, Jaskier is captured by Nilfgaardian soldiers who are determined to find Geralt and Ciri. It will take all his courage and all his love to survive it, and all the fragile possibilities that come after.

    Summary

    “You know,” the old man says with a knowing smile, “if ever there was a place where you could recite and sing of Kaer Morhen, it is within her walls. Perhaps your stay will bring some lightness to all of us and not only the child and Geralt.”

    Jaskier hides the stab of pain at the implication that Geralt might be glad to see him, instead he offers another simple bow and thanks Vesemir for his hospitality before fleeing into the room.

    “Oh, you fool,” he whispers to himself as he falls into a nearby seat, “you bloody heartsick fool, you should have run. Why don’t you ever run?”

    - - -

    After a year of training Ciri in monster-hunting and Chaos, Vesemir and Yennefer agree that her education needs a boost of court politics and wordplay, which means bringing an angry heartbroken master of the seven liberal arts to Kaer Morhen.

    Summary

    Things couldn't be better. Jaskier finally knows that Geralt loves him too, his doubts and fears are gone and he gets to spend his first winter at Kaer Morhen!
    There is only one tiny problem that comes with the latter, namely, that it's goint to get freezing cold. Geralt might say that he doesn't need any warm or soft things, but Jaskier knows better. So of course, he does the only logical thing and teaches himself how to knit so he can keep his favourite witcher warm.

    Summary

    They’re all in the hot springs after a training session, Geralt already relaxing with his head on the stone ledge behind him, when Lambert and Eskel abruptly stop talking. Geralt is instantly snapped out of his half-doze at the silence, looking up to see what’s happened.

    Jaskier’s got scars. Extensive ones; the sort that noble born men don’t normally have.

    Geralt feels something weirdly cold in his gut as he takes in how the soft brown of Jaskier’s body hair is split apart by a river of gnarled skin.

     

    (The Wolves see Jaskier fully naked for the first time and Eskel gives his scars some love.)

    Summary

    The Witcher’s eyes glint. They run over every stretch of Jaskier’s body, sprawled out and bowed in a plush bed, hips hitched high and brought back against powerful thrusts.

    There’s a sharp grunt against his nape, curling over his sweat-slick skin. Jaskier’s grip on the sheets tightens.

    “Is it anything like you imagined, bard?” Geralt’s voice rumbles through the room like thunder.

    Summary

    Lambert had never had a guest before. He paled around with Geralt and Eskel, they weren't terrible company, but they made him feel like such a kid: Lambert, their annoying brother, always chasing after the older boys, trying to win their favor... But he and Coën were the same age, or thereabouts. Things were... it was easier when they were together. The normally calm, duty bound Griffin melted into giggles whenever Lambert made a face or told a joke; they bitched about the same stupid shit with contracts and humans, though Coën used much kinder words. It just felt nice to have someone like that. He imagined what it would've been like if they'd grown up together, been at the same school. Lambert still would've hated it, but having a close friend, well, maybe Lambert would be more like Geralt and Eskel: a solid Witcher who didn't dwell on the extra shitty parts of life, because he had someone by his side to make the good bits more fun, and the weird bits more tolerable.

    Summary

    This fic features my female original Cat witcher, Nix. The main ships are Nix & Aiden and Nix/Eskel, with tertiary? Aiden/Lambert. The Aiden ships are established, Nix/Eskel is eventual. Nix is grey ace and bi, and touch averse when the fic begins. She is injured and travels with Aiden and Lambert up to Kaer Morhen. I don’t think the fic is super heavy but it does touch on a lot of stuff. Hopefully it ends up kind of warm (happy ending, ofc). As with my other OC fic, this is super self-indulgent, which means it's heaps of angst and hurt/comfort tied together with string. Lots of soft moments though.

    Summary

    It’s a practised rhythm. They know each other too well, and now, bundled into a former Witcher stronghold for the winter, Jaskier has made his peace with the fact that he isn’t going to wander very far from this bed for the season.

    All he can do is writhe against the bed, clutching at the rumpled sheets with one hand and welding the other over his mouth.

    There’s a rumbled laugh against the hollow of his neck. “You’re not one to be shy, bard."

    Summary

    Geralt’s hand slips up his side, along his bicep, over his jaw, and hooks on his chin, tilting Jaskier’s face toward him. Jaskier shivers pleasantly and leans into the touch, craning his neck so that he can kiss Geralt while they stay close, still spooning. His witcher’s lips are warm and gentle, and he kisses Jaskier as he always does: sweet and slow and oh-so passionate.

    The door creaks open.

    “Fuck, you two are busy.” It’s Lambert. Jaskier pulls away from Geralt’s lips and turns forward to find his best friend hanging awkwardly in their door frame, one hand still gripped tight around the door handle and a nervous look on his face. Jaskier’s chest aches at the sight. “I’m sorry, I can leave—”

    or, Jaskier is dating Geralt, but Lambert is important to him too.

    Summary

    “Come with me.”

    Aiden, just on the cusp of sleep, is jolted awake. It’s not a strange request. Lambert has aked before; last month, and the month before that, and the month before that. And Aiden has given him his answer, and yet the Wolf still asks.

    “You know why I can’t, my dear,” he hums, watching the hearth across the room spit and crackle and a plume of warmth washes through the air.

    Summary

    After falling out with Jaskier and being snowed in on the mountain pass, Geralt wakes up in Kaer Morhen.

    Eskel, Lamber, and Vesemir all do their best to help him in their own ways. And fuck, Geralt needs all the help he can get.

    (Continuation of "Death Is Just Good Enough (For Outcasts)" but can technically be read as a stand-alone. You might be missing the full effect if you do so though)

    Summary

    Returning to Kaer Morhen, Geralt can't shake the feeling that he's being followed. Something is watching him, something that desperately wishes to make its presence known.

    But Geralt doesn't have the time to indulge in ghost stories for children, not when the weight of his grief hangs so heavy around his neck.

    Summary

    It’s Jaskier’s first time wintering at Kaer Morhen. When he comes to Geralt’s room in the middle of the night, the witcher is sure what he’s after, and it has nothing to do with some imaginary “haunting”.
    Or
    Jaskier can’t sleep because of ghosts and Geralt responds by sexing him up, much to his delight and confusion.

    New summary courtesy of maiNuoire:
    Jaskier: I have ghosts, can I crash here?
    Geralt: Sure, climb in, are they in your dick? Let me help...
    Jaskier: ... wut.

    Summary

    "...Geralt looked up from the silver sword to find a woman approaching them, and not just any ordinary village girl, no, it was another Witcher.

    She was quite tall, perhaps 5’10”, her dazzling yellow eyes scanned them both cautiously, but a slight smirk tugged at the corners of her mouth. Her shocking white hair was shaved short on the back and sides while a bundle of thick curls sat atop. Geralt was surprised to see her in such heavy armor, it was like she was dressed to bear the colds atop a summit. He was sure to keep an eye on the steel sword in her hand, and the humming medallion around her neck.

    Geralt noticed his medallion was humming too...."

    Summary

    Jaskier wasn't exactly sure what he had expected Kaer Morhen to be like but the keep was everything and nothing like it. The place was a dichotomy. Magnificent and sad in equal measures in its derelict state. Silent but full of noise. Cold yet filled with warmth.

    But most importantly, it was Geralt's home. Seeing him so relaxed, the sharpest edges rounded down with the knowledge of being safe and surrounded by his family was a beautiful sight to behold.

    Jaskier wished he too would relearn what safety felt like.

    Summary

    5 times the witchers drink a *Questionable Substance* and 1 time they think better of it.

    Or rather, 1 time where Vesemir knows better and 5 times he learns his sons were idiots.

    Inspired by a comment from Panur on my last fic, A Lesson In Perspective.

    “Damn it, Lambert,” Vesemir muttered, “what did you put in that booze?”

    “Wart Root! And Black Mold,” Lambert announced.

    Geralt and Eskal stared at him.

    “Oh,” Eskal said. “Oh, we’re fucked.”

    Geralt watched the liquor swirling in his cup. “Hm.”

    “And you drank it.” Vesemir shook his head. “Tell me your senses serve you better on the path.”

    There was just a little too much hesitation before the chorus of “…Well-”

    A familiar feeling dawned on Vesemir. “This isn’t the worst of it, is it.”

    Summary

    “The caravan to Oxenfurt left yesterday morning there isn’t another one this year” Jaskier said looking to the floor. Then why wasn’t Jaskier on it? Geralt thought frustrated. They brought the tickets together. Geralt made sure Jaskier had enough coins and food for the trip.

    “Why aren’t you on it” Geralt asked angrily. He hoped for Jaskier sake it wasn’t because of some kind of woman he spent the night with. If that was the case Geralt would leave him right here in the stables.

    “Because somebody hurt me,” Jaskier said. That got Geralt’s attention.

    Summary

    “Stay with me this winter,” he didn’t dare say, “forget the college, forget your students- come with me,” the dangerous words danced on his tongue, but didn’t dare take the plunge into the open air, where Geralt would have to consider them- to take them in and realize he truly did care for the bard.

    “See you around, Geralt! In the spring! Same spot! Don’t forget, dearest!” Jaskier grinned. Why did he always have to talk like that? Geralt merely grunted in response, not trusting himself to speak for fear of saying something he wasn’t yet ready to say. Jaskier gave Geralt a parting hug, one he hadn’t been ready for, then turned on his heel, and left- stumbling off into the distance. Geralt could only hope the stupid poet would live long enough for them to meet again.
