    Bookmarker's Notes

    It's not hard to convince me that Venom would be down for sex just because hey, they're in that body too! And they like Eddie! And it's INTERESTING! But this is the first story I've seen from Venom's POV that really breaks down how awkward it is for Venom to have sex with an alien. Like, this is weird all around, guys. And they have so many emotions!

    Really fun.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A really lovely little series that feels like it fits into the characters' lives, rather than trying to fit their lives to the story (which is a different but also totally excellent style). I love the realism of the physicality -- it's not realistic in a sordid, contrarian way, just realistic in the sense that, yeah, how recently a partner has bathed or whether you might need to ride a horse the next day *does* make a difference. It makes the sex hotter, and the character interactions sweeter, because everything feels *earned*.

    Summary

    “Well,” Jaskier replies distractedly. “Lots of things want to strangle you.”

    “You don’t.”

    It isn’t a particularly troublesome accusation, or even necessarily an accusation at all.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Fantastically hot, beautifully written, and great character work. Sometimes writers have to sand the rough edges off Geralt and Jaskier for them to fit together, but this story does the work of getting them together exactly as they are: messy, contradictory, not great at communication, and extremely invested in each other.

    Summary

    “I learn stuff about you to enrich my songs, thanks very much.”

    Geralt starts. “Like what?”

    Jaskier strums a chord. “Plenty of things. You always ask the contractor if they want the head or not instead of just showing up with it, because you don’t want to shock people. You eat normal amounts of food when eating in public, instead of your usual awe-inducing giant amount. You sleep more when you’re hurt, but that’s the only way I’d ever know. You’re a bit weird about your potions and you count them a lot.” He glances up and grins. “Shall I continue?”

    A handful of contracts go sideways. Recovering is easier with Jaskier there.
