    Summary

    Following a car crash, Julian Pankratz is returned to his parents after over a decade of being missing -- but without his memories . As he pieces his life back together, he chooses the name 'Jaskier' for himself. He is perfectly content to pursue a PhD in the music of the great bard Dandelion, until the White Wolf himself stumbles into his life and stays there. Before long, Jaskier has a new question to ask himself: is he Julian Pankratz, or is he someone or something much, much older?

     


    Geralt hummed an affirmative sound. His eyes bore into Jaskier's, and he could not help but feel as if his every last movement was being observed and catalogued for later examination. Without blinking, he said,

    "Dandelion was my husband."

    The words hit somewhere deep within Jaskier and rattled around inside his chest. His eyes widened. A peculiar ache swelled in his heart, only to be washed away by a flood of excitement.

    "Of course. That explains everything," he breathed.

    Summary

    Jaskier was of noble descent. The way he spoke drove Geralt up the wall. But, luckily, he wouldn't have to deal with that for much longer. He spun around to face the source of all that irritating noise. It was hardly worth it, because he almost fell off by simply doing so. The piece of wood under his legs began to wobble. He was just evading the inevitable, though.

    "With all due respect, Cap'n, it was your idea to have me walk the plank.", he remarked, level-headed. Not that it mattered, but still.

    ______

    Jaskier, an eccentric pirate Captain with a flair for the dramatic, is brave enough to kiss the bounty hunter who's after his head. Geralt, however, just *really* needs some coin and wishes he had chosen a simpler target. A little Tom and Jerry-esque, if you will.

    Summary

    Jaskier was half way through a lackluster rendition of one of his least popular songs when his world went static.

    In his ears, a foreign heartbeat thundered, ragged and wounded. It felt as though his lungs had gone sideways with the sensation. Even the air itself tasted like it was charged with lightning, bright and bitter as ozone. Deep in his gut, he felt something urging himself forward, pulling him like some invisible string towards an unknown destination.

    Something brushed across his senses, rough as tree bark, and sinking into his skin to crawl like ants beneath. He froze, eyes darting around the room like he could spot whoever it was that had sent his senses scrambling against the hard earned shields he was always careful to maintain. In his hands, his fingers faltered, melody disappearing beneath the wave of wrong that felt like it was choking him.

    The answer was simple--and impossible.

    There was a Sentinel here.

    Summary

    After completing a contract for the Countess de Stael, Geralt doesn't expect to walk away with much. A night in a warm bed, a full belly, a coin purse made just a little bit heavier.

    Instead, he finds himself in possession of a magically enslaved bard—an Indebted. Despite his long years, Geralt still manages to be surprised by the cruelty of men. The Path is no place for a man, and he doesn't want a slave. But Destiny has other plans, and Geralt finds himself struggling to navigate the ethical minefield of guardianship and possession while walking the Path with his new companion.

    Meanwhile, Jaskier tries to figure out where he stands with his strange new Benefactor.
