    Summary

    “Jaskier,” Geralt starts, pleading. Julian scoffs. The stupid man really can’t take a hint, can he?
    “Jaskier was nothing but a pipe dream, Geralt,” Julian reminds him coldly, even as Jaskier cries out at his words and tries to force his way back up his throat. But Jaskier is dead and can never return. Julian swallows him back, voice wavering only slightly. “And you need to wake up from him, as I have.”

    (Or: Jaskier's glamour breaks after the terrible events on Niedamir's Mountain and Julian is forced to return to the Path. Everything should have been fine—Julian has spent nearly a century before being Jaskier as a witcher; he should be used to it—but then he ends up taking the same contract as Geralt and his Child Surprise and suddenly Julian isn't sure where he ends and Jaskier begins.)

    Summary

    “Oh,” Zuko said. His voice came out very small.

    “What is it?” Jinora asked, slipping past the dragon’s elbow.

    “Ba Sing Se,” Zuko breathed. In all his years he never thought he’d see it again—not like it was then. He curled a wrinkled hand into the thickness of Druk’s fur. The dragon pressed his snout into Zuko’s neck.

    “It can’t be,” Jinora frowned. “I’ve been there before. It’s not that small, for one thing.”

    “It was,” Zuko said. “And I know why you don’t recognise it. It’s because it’s not your Ba Sing Se. It’s mine. The one from my youth.”

    Summary

    The way home is gone.

    There should be a rift in front of him, a hole torn through the wall in Hill Top Road and reality itself, leading back to his world. Instead, only unfinished brick, and Martin is left stranded on the wrong side, in the wrong world, with the wrong Jon. The only way forward is to live as the wrong Martin, taking over the space left open by his counterpart's death until he can figure out how to get back.

    And maybe stop the apocalypse while he's at it.
