    Summary

    “You didn’t come back,” Geralt murmurs as if that somehow covers everything.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Beautiful, beautiful, writing.

    “Look, let’s not make plans about it, Geralt. I don’t want promises you won’t be able to keep.” Geralt flinches, so subtly that Jaskier only catches it because of the witcher’s hand on him. “I’ve always known who you are. It isn’t as if I kept coming back because I thought you were ever going to be different.”

    When Geralt pulls his hand away, it’s all Jaskier can do not to chase after the contact. He’s sort of relieved when there’s conversation to focus on until he actually hears what Geralt is asking, “Then why?”

    He can’t say all of it. It wouldn’t be fair here, when Geralt is so clearly remorseful, he’d probably give anything he thought Jaskier wanted. There’d never be any telling what of it was real and he’s seen the cost of that kind complication already. So, Jaskier holds onto his secrets, maybe for now, maybe forever, and gives the most sanitized explanation he knows how to. “No one is everything you want them to be. Sharing your life with other people is mostly just figuring out whose faults you can put up with. Or, at least whose better qualities make up for it. So, I made a choice. Every time.”

    Summary

    "For a while, Jaskier doesn’t know he’s cursed. It feels like free will, going back down that mountain, just as dangerous down as the way up, and alone this time, too. The descent is fast, maybe even reckless, but Jaskier’s feeling numb and out-of-sorts anyways, Geralt’s words simmering in his mind, and at the time it doesn’t feel like he’s being pulled on by anything but his own desire to get away."

    Based off a post that Geralt's words on the mountain are granted by the djinn.

    Summary

    The stones always hurt, but Geralt would hazard to say that the looks on the faces of the people throwing them hurt more.
