    Summary

    After consuming an unknown potion, Geralt finds himself able to hear Jaskier’s thoughts.  Geralt does not think this will be a big deal:  his heightened senses give him an advantage on reading people anyways and it’s not like the other man keeps a lot to himself to begin with. 

    Jaskier thinks this is going to be a disaster.

    Jaskier is correct.

    Summary

    It was entirely possible that there existed, in this world, more than one Greg Lestrade. Multiple versions of the man that endeavored to leave Mycroft wrong footed every time he met with him...

    Summary

    Jaskier was cursed, which wasn’t news to him, he’d had the curse lurking in his bones for a long time. The problem was it had activated. And the mountain… Geralt had been at fault.

    Now, it had been years, and he hadn’t moved on. Couldn’t.

    And by some miracle of destiny, Geralt was thrown back into his life.

    Maybe they’d get to have that coastal break after all.

    Summary

    Jaskier has been hiding his draconic 'heritage' for as long as he could remember. And travelling with Geralt and Ciri, it didn't seem to be an issue. That is until a notice comes up about hunting dragons.

    All of a sudden, everything is thrown into disarray as he has to face feelings and impulses he had been suppressing for years, nothing seems safe anymore. Geralt tries to fix it.

     

    “No, we need to keep Ciri safe first I-.”

    This whole interaction is too intense for him to even begin to comprehend. Fear grips him from all angles, practically strangling him as he just tries to breathe. And then of course there's Geralt being so soft with him, something he only did in small moments. It hurts seeing Geralt so scared for him.

    “Geralt-”

    “It’s okay. We’ll get you out of here. I won’t let them hurt you, I promise.”

    Summary

    Jaskier's student doesn’t see him when she skids into the tavern. Her friends are already present, drinking merrily, and she slaps their table so hard their tankards rattle.

    “Have you heard?" She flashes a gossiper's secretive grin. "The White Wolf’s gone mad.”

    After Geralt sends Jaskier away, Jaskier returns to Oxenfurt and builds a good (albeit unfulfilling) life there. He's fine—moving on, truly—until gut-wrenching rumors start to circulate that the White Wolf's lost his his mind. Jaskier's a bard. A truth-teller. He can't just let the rumors go unsubstantiated.
