    Summary

    Geralt is just supposed to pass through the quiet Lettenhove area. He's not anticipating being begged by its people to help save their viscount from a curse that keeps him from daylight. Lord Jaskier, they call him, and he's likely dying.

    As Geralt struggles to untangle the ugly web of history that has lead to the increasingly complicated curse, he finds himself spending more and more time with the strange young viscount and wondering just what he might have been before the curse, and who he might be after. But things are not always as they seem, and as the curse tightens its grip on Jaskier, Geralt is forced to face the fear of failing yet another person whose choices were stolen from them.

    Or-

    Jaskier is kept from becoming a bard. Geralt finds him anyway.

    Summary

    “The only solution is a united front,” Yennefer says. When this just prompts blank expressions, she sighs. “Honestly, do I have to spell it out? I mean the two of you should get married.”

    Geralt stares at her. Jaskier’s mouth drops open. Tissaia says, thoughtfully, “that could actually work.”

    “No it couldn’t!” Jaskier says, loud and shrill.

    After Calanthe and Eist are killed, the fate of Cintra hangs in the balance. The only solution is an alliance between two men: the witcher Geralt of Rivia, bound to the princess by the Law of Surprise, and Cirilla’s uncle Julian, better known as Jaskier the bard.

    Summary

    About fifteen minutes after Jaskier's attempt at crawling through the seemingly perfectly human-sized hole in the wall, he admits to himself that he is well and truly stuck, unable to make progress forward or backward. About ten minutes after that, he resigns himself to the inevitability of humiliation and mockery, and starts shouting for help. It's a keep full of witchers; someone is bound to hear.

     

    Someone does.

    Winters at Kaer Morhen are tough in many ways - not least of which is obiding by Geralt's strict no-touching rule when it comes to his goddamn bard. He's a temptation and a half and everyone is just about ready to go insane.

    When Jaskier gets himself thoroughly stuck in a compromising situation, the temptation proves too much to resist.

    Summary

    Yennefer stops, sinking into a crouch so that they’re on eye level. “Jaskier. You have a spell placed on you and I need to break it,” she explains.

    “A spell?” Contrary to what any sane person would think when told they’ve been bespelled, Jaskier is wide-eyed and excited, the same look he gets as an adult whenever he senses a good story coming on. “What kind?”

    “A dangerous one.” She hates to squash that light in his eyes, but it’s true—she doesn’t know what other side effects it might have. She needs to reverse it sooner rather than later—gods forbid it becomes permanent. “Now will you please come here? I’m a sorceress, and I can help.”

    Spell after spell after spell she casts, getting more and more complex as she goes, but none work. “Fuck!” she roars as her latest attempt fails, once again.

    “Madame Sorceress?” Jaskier asks, brow creasing, worry creeping in. “Is it—did it work?”

    “No,” Yennefer replies, and sighs, because she knows what she has to do. Who better to break a curse, after all, than a witcher?
