    Summary

    “You. Student,” the witcher growls, voice rough and low.
    “My name is Jaskier,” he answers, crossing his arms.
    “Jaskier. You really want to help?”
    “Yes,” he says, before he can question the safety or intelligence of it.
    The man’s body tenses, as if bracing himself. “I need to get into the sewers underneath the university campus,” he says through gritted teeth as though it physically hurts him to have to make a request of Jaskier.
    “You can’t get into them from the rest of the sewers?”
    “No, they’re closed off.”
    “Hmm.” Jaskier thinks about it. Considers it carefully. Then he says, “Okay. I have an idea. Follow my lead, witcher.”

    (or: Jaskier is a bardic arts student at Oxenfurt University who finds new inspiration in a witcher with a reputation problem. Geralt is a witcher who finds himself oddly captivated by a bard who trusts a witcher without fear. Romance ensues.)

    Summary

    Eventually Jaskier settles down on the bed. When he’s been silent for several long moments Geralt cracks open an eye. The light from the fire in the hearth is more than enough to see by for his enhanced eyesight. Jaskier is curled up on the bed, back to the wall and limbs gathered up to his chest. It’s a childlike pose that strikes a dissonant chord in Geralt’s chest. He remembers spending nights with Jaskier in other inns, in camps on the roadside, and Jaskier sprawls when he sleeps. Limbs flung out in every direction, sometimes close enough to grasp for Geralt’s warmth.

    ---

    When Geralt carries Jaskier out of the cellar beneath the cottage on the outskirts of the abandoned town he thinks, this is as bad as it will get.

    Summary

    Julian was supposed to toss his Amulet of Bonding into the river before his twenty-first birthday, for his soulmate to retrieve it, but he’s been avoiding this responsibility for eleven months. When he finally decides to let go, fate seems to have other plans for him. Forget about soulmates, forget about family responsibility: run off and become Jaskier, the travelling entertainer. But he soon learns that it’s hard to outrun his past—and even harder to outrun his future.


    AKA: The hilariously overdramatic, vaguely 19th-century-esque soulmate AU where Jaskier is a coward and Geralt is allergic to feelings. And other nonsense.
