    Summary

    So,” Jaskier begins, as casually as he can, “you are telling me, that in theory, if I were to be in love with someone — anyone — that person could well be in terrible danger?” 

    ---

    Of all terrible and ridiculous things that have threatened Geralt’s safety, Jaskier’d never thought that loving him might be what will get him killed.

    Summary

    Getting stuck in Kaedwen in winter had never been on Jaskier's plan. It's cold, they don't appreciate his music and nobody likes their national beverage anyway. The only redeeming thing Kaedwen has is Kaer Morhen, so Jaskier does what any reasonable bard would do in this situation: he decides to charm his way into Kaer Morhen to hibernate with Geralt and the other witchers. If nothing it will be an experience no human has ever had, fuel for songs and poems for years to come, while finally teaching him a thing or two about witchers he's just dying to know.

    Curiosity tended to kill the cat, but Jasker had always seen himself as more of a bird anyway.

    This one's a proper structured story with adventure, character arcs, plotline and everything in-between. I loved every second of this pretty long journey and I can't recommend it to you enough.

    Please, please give it a read - you most certainly won't regret it.

    It's one of those long stories that keep you interested even if you don't manage the whole thing in one sitting. You will have the urge to pick up where you left the next day, and the next day, and however long it'll take you to go through the whole piece.

    It's magical and entrancing and even the most mundane parts are easy to read and enjoy.

    Bookmarked and saved for a later re-read or two.

    I mean it's clearly missing a chapter but OH WELL.

    In all honesty though, a really good one. The best, probably, among the ones I read on Geralt X Jaskier yet. There's always room for improvement, of course, but this one's story felt solid. More independent from the romance happening and focused more on the lore and the world without being obnoxiously over-explanatory, I feel.

    Really, really recommend this one.

    Summary

    “This drink, the mage made it. It is going to make you a good boy,” she brushed back his hair, too long nails trailing along his cheek. “But you cannot tell anyone. You cannot tell a soul about this drink or this spell. You don’t talk about it. You keep it secret.”

     

    Julian opened his mouth to ask more and was hit by a pain he had never experienced. The boy cried out in pain and doubled over, arm wrapping around his screaming middle. His mother shushed him and pet at him until he was able to catch his breath.

     

    “See what happens to naughty little boys who don’t listen?” Her voice was sharp. “I told you not to say anything.”

    --

    Jaskier was cursed with obedience as a child and has mostly learned to get by without others knowing. Geralt is not most people.

    Oof

    This one's rough. Could've been worse (even though it's hard to imagine how) but as it is, it was really... depressing at times.

    Still a really good adventure. Although the ending was a bit (a lot) rushed, if you ask me.

    This is Jaskier's story. Not really Great& Jaskier's, if you know what I mean.

    Loved what they did to Yennefer's character though.
