    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

    Geralt could justify being a dick since the bard must not have understood how dangerous it was to stay by Geralt’s side. Then the bard shattered the illusion of daintiness he had created in Geralt’s mind over the five years they had been traveling together by killing a pair of bandits that tried to ambush their camp while Geralt was on a hunt.

    Geralt’s mind had been mildly boggled when he returned to the sharp tang of blood and signs of a scuffle, marks in the dirt like bodies had been dragged, and the bard sitting exactly where Geralt had left him with his lute in his lap and leaning against Roach’s belly as she lounged lazily in the sun.

    Summary

    Geralt stumbles upon the old, abandoned altar right beside the cliff’s edge. He’s just killed a basilisk and destroyed its eggs and nest when his medallion starts humming, heats up, alerting him to magic swirling in the air. He’s on guard, always, and, with steel sword drawn, he creeps closer.

    *

    Geralt picks up a magic item. He spends an inordinate amount of time time panicking because nice things start happening to him.

    Of course, he realizes not everything is about him. But it all works out in the end.

    Summary

    "You know," he says, tucking more purple flowers into the crown, nearly but not quite drowning out the white, "I never did catch your name."

    "Eskel.  You?"

    "Hmm," the man lets out a hum as he seems to consider his options.  Something about it feels oddly familiar, but Eskel can't place it. "I think you can call me Dandelion," he says after a moment.

    Eskel's asked to deal with a violent specter of some sort, but ends up finding something else entirely.
