    Summary

    To own a monster was all the rage, but they weren't monsters. Monsters had gone extinct over the years and were left to legend with the Witchers that hunted them. These were hybrids: half person and half animal. Jaskier has been waiting his whole life to finally get one, taking classes and paying fees. It all starts with one question.

    "How much is the doggy over there?"

    Summary

    Geralt is satisfied with his life. He adores his teenage daughter. He has a good relationship with his ex-wife and her girlfriend. He runs a successful secondhand bookshop with his brothers. He's happy, he supposes. It's a good life.

    Then he meets Jaskier, a local musician who is much more than he seems, and nothing in Geralt's life will ever be the same.

    Summary

    Geralt has only ever talked about one nuisance bard, the one that wrote the fucking song that has people throwing coppers at him when he walks into bars. Jaskier something or other, who gives a shit, “Why the fuck is he here?”

    “To winter with me,” Geralt snaps, a warning in his tone Lambert readily ignores. “Problem?”

    “Yeah, the problem is the strange prostitute you brought to The Keep!!” Lambert exclaims, because he’d had a feeling Geralt was smitten, but apparently, he’s an idiot and doesn’t know a bad idea when he sees one if it smiles at him pretty enough.

    “Hey, I’m at least a strange courtesan!” the bard calls.

     

    (Lambert is extremely protective of the very little he has, including his brother. Jaskier is a threat to all of them, he doesn’t get why everyone doesn’t see that.)

    Summary

    First, Jaskier lost his witcher on that mountain top. Then Nilfgaard started the war and he lost everything else. Now he travels the Continent as a nameless, wandering, welcome bard. There is no greater power, Jaskier knows, than that of bringing light into darkness through the art of music and poetry.

    It comes as a great surprise to him, then, that his presence is asked at Kaer Morhen by none other than Yennefer of Vengerberg. Although apprehensive, all hesitation melts away when he hears why they need him. Princess Cirilla seems in dire need of a bard to bring some light back into her eyes.

    For that, Jaskier knows, he would even bear to live with four grumpy witchers and the Continent's most powerful mage. Oh well... He's sure this won't end well for him.

    Or: Jaskier is coming to Kaer Morhen as Ciri's emotional support bard. They make an unexpected family along the path to healing.

    Summary

    Despite Jaskier's hard work, there are still plenty of people who hate witchers. They think they're monstrous, inhuman, only held back from violence by a thin veneer of control. One mage has a plan to spread his views by capturing a witcher and bewitching them to remove their control. When the Butcher of Blaviken walks into his hideout, he's convinced he's found the perfect candidate - and a convenient way to get rid of the pesky bard that's been singing his praises.

    Jaskier is forced to agree witchers are not human, but that doesn't mean they're dangerous. In fact, he's astounded by how many of Geralt's uncontrolled impulses involve touching.
