    Summary

    All witchers are alphas or betas by nature, since no omega has ever survived the Trial of the Grasses. Gerald has never had any problems with satisfying his needs on the occasional rut, for the whores from Poviss to Nilfgard were eager to be of service to a sturdy hunk like him. On the other hand, a certain omega/ bard/ occasional witcher tagalong has always made certain to acquire enough suppressants from local healers before setting out on a new adventure. That is, until the travels with his favourite White Wolf led the unlike pair into uncharted territory for longer than expected… life ensues.

    Summary

    “They had been told, as young witchers, that the burden of their secondary sex had been relieved by the Trial of Grasses. The mutations took away the change that would come as humans hit adulthood, and they would be without a subsex. Witchers were men, and men alone. They were not given the added burden of being an alpha, or an omega, or a beta. They were free from that particular form of madness.“

    Jaskier is hired to be a heat companion for an omega widow, and Geralt is hired alongside him to play bodyguard. Unfortunately, being so close to the chaos that is human mating cycles, Geralt begins to suffer strange symptoms of his own.

    Trust Jaskier to take care of it. He’s a professional, after all.

    Summary

    At the beginning, it was just a way of venting about his frustrations concerning the bard.

    “Musi mieć nierówno pod sufitem.” He must be soft in the head, Geralt says to Roach quietly as he brushes her mane. He glances over his shoulder, looking at Jaskier sitting by the fire and strumming his newly-acquired elven lute. “Nikt o zdrowych zmysłach nie chciałby pisać o mnie pieśni.” Nobody in their right mind would want to write songs about me, the witcher scoffs in an old language which he’s sure the young bard won’t understand.

    As years pass, it becomes a safe way to tell Jaskier how he feels. Jaskier doesn't know what he's saying anyway... until one day, he does.

    Based on artistsfuneral's take on the prompt "love confessions: in a language you didn't know they understand".

    Summary

    “Jaskier? Jaskier, are you—“ Geralt trails off as his eyes scan the room, landing on the middle of the bed where Jaskier is curled up into himself. Geralt sighs because of course he knows what’s going on immediately; he’s a smart bastard, after all. “Fuck.”

    -

    After flouncing around with the wife of a sorceress, Jaskier is cursed into a mutt of a dog. Geralt isn't nearly as worried about this sudden problem as Jaskier thinks he should be.
