    Summary

    They’re gathered around after dinner, watching Jaskier demolish Lambert’s Gwent deck—Lambert is pissed and impressed in equal measure—when it finally comes up. Lambert has switched tactics and is trying to distract Jaskier with tales from The Path. It’s working quite well, actually, until Eskel’s chuckles trail off, a curious look crossing his face.

    “Actually…” he starts, only to pause as he scratches at his jaw, a nervous tick he doesn’t bother to suppress over the winter. “Did you two, uh… notice anything different this year?”

    Geralt looks at him sharply. “Different how?” he asks at the same moment Lambert puts his cards down and exclaims, “Are you talking about the whores??”

    Jaskier flashes redder than a beet.

     

    (Jaskier writes a song that changes public opinion about witchers. …No, not that song.)

    Summary

    Julian gave up his life as a witcher to become Jaskier the bard ten years ago. He lives a peaceful life with his druid lover, Geralt, until a friend vanishes and he’s forced to take up witchering again to find him.

    Geralt comes to Novigrad to find Jaskier, the man he loves, and has no choice but to seek out the help of Eskel, the mage who broke his heart decades ago.

    It’s been forty-two years since Eskel lost Geralt, so when his former love walks into his shop and asks for help tracking down his current lover, Eskel has no choice but to agree, even if it breaks his heart.

    Yennefer just came to Novigrad to take a contract on a zeugl. She has no interest in tracking down the killer kidnapping non-humans all over the city, not until she runs into Julian, the Bear witcher she once loved.

    Now the four of them have to contend with a vicious killer and a terrified city— as well as their complicated feelings for each other.

    Summary

    ‘So, you’re Nicky, I take it? I’m Joe.’
    ‘Sorry, I don’t speak English,’ Nicky says. It’s about the only sentence he knows in English, a dubious badge of honour he nevertheless wears with pride. Or rather, he did until about five minutes ago, when Andy said there was someone she wanted him to meet. In English.
    --
    Modern AU with language barriers: Joe speaks Dutch, English, and Arabic; Nicky speaks Italian, Spanish, and German. Andy didn't know that when she introduced them, but it doesn't really matter.

    As the poets say, love finds a way.

    Summary

    In a dank cave in the Blue Mountains, a stripling just barely past the cusp of manhood looks up at a cyclops looming over him and raises his arm in a futile effort to ward off the massive hand as it swings towards him.

    On the banks of a river, hundreds of miles and precisely five decades later, to the day and the hour and the ticking second, a man raises his hand to deflect the arrow hissing towards him and knows he’s going to be too slow.

    Both of them have the exact same thought as their deaths approach:

    Lambert is never going to forgive me.

    Summary

    What are you supposed to do when you've been fired from your sweet job in Hell for thwarting the schemes of Satan, you've got a swanky flat in Mayfair, and you're looking for an excuse to spend all your time in someone else's bookshop? Obviously, you turn to the dubious world of short-term vacation rentals.

    The resulting Airbnb property has been variously described as "an instagram trap," "a vampire den but make it botanical," and "the weirdest bed and breakfast in the shared history of beds and breakfasting."
