    Summary

    Crushing the songs behind his teeth doesn’t really burn them out of him, not like he’d like. There’s still a part of him that thinks in poetry and melody, little tunes sparking off in his head from a specific clop of horses’ hooves or a particularly musical peal of laughter, but he never once lets them cross his lips. They’re all inane little tunes, anyway, nothing that’d be worth vocalizing even if he could.

    That may be why he hates Jaskier at first brush.

    (In which Geralt actually loved music as a child, but love and music are not for witchers.)

    Summary

    It was summer, their relationship still new. For so long Geralt and Jaskier had known each other as friends; now they were discovering what it meant to be together as lovers, trying things, feeling things for the first time. Jealousy was new to Geralt, as was the need to make all the world know that this divine creature belonged to him. But how to make his love known? Jaskier had told the word in song, the famed bard marking Geralt with his words and fine silk sleeves. How was Geralt to mark Jaskier as belonging to a witcher?

    The long-awaited sequel to Greensleeves!

    Summary

    When Jaskier needs rescuing from a monster outside Kaer Morhen, certain buried truths come to light.

    ***
    But then Geralt looks at him, and Jaskier starts. This close, he can see something else in those goldmelt eyes. They’re too bright, brimming with an emotion that’s not just irritation and selfish surliness. That’s—but—but it can’t be. Jaskier pushes down that line of thinking too, swallows it into that pit in his chest. A muscle in Geralt’s jaw works. And then, as if he’s shoveling the words up from deep within him, Geralt speaks.

    “I can’t lose you again.”

    Summary

    Long is one fight, long is the next;
    few can bear three.
    A mournful monster’s call rings in the night
    to urge the Witcher on.

    Departed Gods did bless his step
    and curse his quiet life

    The skald Jaskier stumbles across a corpse in the field, that of a Witcher, if his eyes don't mistake him. He's really quite beautiful; shame a monster got him in the end. Jaskier puts the corpse in a more dignified position and sets about writing the man a poem. It's the least he can do, really.

    Summary

    Geralt claps his hand over Jaskier’s mouth. “I think I love you,” he says quickly, “and I think you love me, too, and this is definitely something we need to talk about, but I was just a wolf for three hours, so could we perhaps save that discussion for later?”

    Eyes wide, Jaskier nods.

    “Thank you.”

    ---

    Jaskier finds his soulmate, befriends a wolf, and breaks a spell.
