    Summary

    Fleeing across a war-torn Cintra on her quest to find Geralt of Rivia, Ciri finds... not Geralt.

    *

    “I want you to let me go!” She snapped, and pulled her arm from his grasp. He let her go easily. “It’s, it’s no business of yours what I am doing,” she declared, every inch royalty in her moment. It fled her the next, leaving a scared little girl in its wake. “Please, let me be.”

    “I can’t,” Jaskier replied instantly, and he found he meant it. “Let me help you,” he said.

    After a long, squint-eyed moment of suspicion, her chin thrust up defiantly.

    “I won’t lie on my back for you.”

    “Lie on your-- no,” he retched, horrified, but her face remained as it had, cagey, untrusting, jaded. “Princess, no. I want nothing so vile from you, I promise you. You must leave this place, immediately. You need accompaniment,” he pressed, even as she shook her head. “You- you need to find Geralt of Rivia!”

    Summary

    Things that Jaskier can remember about his family:
    -His mother stroking his hair, the soft murmur of her voice as he settled more comfortably against her. There was firelight and warmth and love.
    -A brief moment of triumph and then the feeling of weightlessness as his father lifts from the tree and cradles him to his chest. The steady rhythm of his heart in his breast.
    -Reaching up to the sky. He’s not sure what for. Possibly for his parents, though he knows that they are gone, that they have left him, that they are never coming back.
    -His grandfather’s stern visage. The knowledge that he doesn’t want him. that no one wants him. Being sent to temple school is honestly a relief.

     

    Jaskier is (unknowingly) a dragon and is (forcibly) adopted by Borch, post Rare Species.

    Summary

    Stiles is totally looking forward to living alone in his super cool apartment off-campus. He is. He is also very excited to bike to school every day, ready to set up an awesome game room, and definitely over his crush on Derek Hale. Completely over it.

    Or at least he is until Derek decides he's moving in with him. And then turns out to be the perfect roommate. And then starts attending all his classes. As a wolf.

    This is not going according to plan.
