    Summary

    After birthing himself from a fresh grave lifetime-decades ago, Jaskier has played the bard across the continent. He is content because he is who he chooses to be: safely forgettable; a weed who makes music.

    … Until the witcher, and the child surprise. Until the war. If he runs from his birthright, he risks the lives of everyone whom he ever held dear. If he embraces it – he loses them anyway.

    Summary

    grand pause: a symbol used in music that indicates to the musician to rest indefinitely. Exactly how long the rest lasts is up to the musician or the conductor.

    Jaskier walks away from the mountain having lost a witcher and gained a drinking partner, and everything is fine, really.
    Until a curse takes his voice away and the only way to break it is with a good old-fashioned true love's kiss. Easier said - or not, in this case - than done.

    Summary

    Six months have passed since Geralt and Ciri found each other. Since then, they have been on the run from... well, everyone, basically. Geralt is tired, Ciri is hungry, Roach is dead. And then they stumble across a very particular viscounty named Lettenhove. The problem? Geralt broke the Viscount’s heart on a mountain and Julian ‘Jaskier’ Alfred Pankratz, a bard, a friend, a lover, is slow to forgive.

    Summary

    Jaskier keeps bumping into injured Witchers while trying to mend his own broken heart. Geralt has conflicting feelings over seeing the signs of Jaskier's care on his family. Years after the mountain, the ever encroaching threat of Nilfgaard forces them back together and the heavy snows of winter at Kaer Morhen keep them that way.

    Maybe, just maybe, they can mend the friendship that was broken.

    (Maybe they can build something new together.)

    Summary

    “Nilfgaard,” Jaskier said finally after what felt like an eternity. “Nilfgaard is going to start a war,” he said, the meaning of Borch’s words slowly becoming more and more clear in his mind. “They’re going to head for Cintra.”

    The dragon frowned. “Why would that affect you?”

    “There is someone there who has become very precious to me and whose fate also happens to be tied to the witcher. If she’s in danger… then so will he,” Jaskier said as he stood up, the restless energy trying to suffocate him. “You said something about time… time is slipping… I am running out of time - but to do what?” He rounded on the Dragon, his eyes wild. “What did you see? What do I need to do?”
    ----

    OR
    It may have taken him 20 years, but Jaskier knows where he is not wanted. Now, armed with Borch's prophecy, Jaskier is faced with a choice; either walk away entirely and continue living his placid human life or return home, shed the human façade, retake his duties, protect Cirilla and likely run into the Wticher whose one request was for Jaskier to never cross his path again.

    He knows what the right choice is. What he doesn't know, however, is how much of him will be left by the time the dust settles.
