    Summary

    Jaskier is in the next town down a random road, out of the town Roach had been stabled in at the bottom of the mountain, and his chest aches and aches and aches, the way it did before he met Geralt, the way it did every time they were apart. When they met it was a revelation how well Geralt could fill that emptiness, and Jaskier stayed with him for twenty years. Twenty. Years. Despite the harsh words. Despite the way he sometimes heard Jaskier and looked as if he’d just eaten a lemon. Despite the fact that Jaskier knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the witcher tolerated Jaskier because of someone he'd already fucking lost.

    or: Jaskier's got a curse he can't seem to get broken properly, and Geralt has to mourn a person who's standing right in front of him.

    Summary

    "Why -" he gestures expansively towards Jaskier, his lute, the forest around them, his swords now strapped to Roach "- are you doing this?"

    A bard seeking fortune wouldn't watch Geralt across the fire with eyes half-full of tears that he didn't bother to blink away. An artist looking for a muse wouldn't press close, desperately close, against Geralt's side until he finally gave in and turned his head. A young man after a quick fuck wouldn't grip Geralt to him hard enough to bruise even a witcher.

    The way Jaskier looks at Geralt makes him think he should know the answer already, but he doesn't, he doesn't.

    "Because I know you," he says at last. "Because I have known you. Because I will know you. Isn't that enough?"

    (One day, Geralt will understand that it was the closest thing Jaskier will ever have to a goodbye, and it's enough, it's enough.)

    Summary

    Besnik doesn't truly understand the importance of the mission they've been given. Politics isn't something that's ever interested him, and he has only the faintest notion of why it's so important that the witcher girl that follows the Beast like a shadow is brought home with them to Nilfgaard - but then, it isn't his place to understand.

    -

    When a group of Nilgaardian soldiers fail to capture the witcher princess, they come to realise that what they've got instead could be a valuable tool for negotiation.

    Amazing plot twist

    Summary

    He looked up, and a man stood before him. Geralt hadn't heard him approach. That was the first sign there was something odd.

    The second was the faint but still noxious smell of poison that clung to his fingers, just strong enough to make out over the spiced perfume he wore. And under all of that was a richer smell, as familiar as Geralt's own scent, because it was Geralt's own. Or a witcher's, at least.

    Summary

    Jaskier keeps bumping into injured Witchers while trying to mend his own broken heart. Geralt has conflicting feelings over seeing the signs of Jaskier's care on his family. Years after the mountain, the ever encroaching threat of Nilfgaard forces them back together and the heavy snows of winter at Kaer Morhen keep them that way.

    Maybe, just maybe, they can mend the friendship that was broken.

    (Maybe they can build something new together.)
