A clenched fist is upraised in front of a face, obscuring it. Around the wrist of the hand is a rainbow bracelet, symbolizing pride.

    Summary

    Nothing’s been the same since the Mountain.

     

    Well, one thing, perhaps. He still sings, writes, plays. Music still comes easily to him, as easy as breathing. More easily than the breaths he takes right now (draped and bound over a saddle, chest bouncing painfully against the stirrup leathers, worse when the horses break into a trot). If anything, he makes more music than he did, with a frantic urgency, filling the quiet land around him with the notes whirling in his head that are more necessary to him than food.

     Easier to come by, too, after a while.

    Summary

    “I’m sorry,” Zuko said, so quiet his voice was almost lost beneath the crashing waves. “Please don’t burn me again, Father. I’ll be quiet. I won’t question you again. Please.”

    His voice cracked on the last word. And in that moment, all Sokka could see was the age of the scar warping one half of his face. When they met, Zuko was sixteen and the scar was just as old as it was now, and that meant—that meant—

    Summary

    "Thrown out already?" Geralt asks, and sees the bard shaking his head from the corner of his eye.

    "Hardly! But a wise bard knows when to leave the audience wanting more."

    "I've never met one."

    "One what?"

    "A wise bard," he says, and glances over to see the bard's mouth flapping indignantly.

    "I -- am going to let that go, because you're right, where are my manners." He ducks in front of Geralt as they step onto solid ground, forcing him to halt, and gives him a bow, no less graceful for being quickly executed. "Jaskier, troubadour, poet -- and barker -- at your service."

    __________________________________

    Geralt assumes the bard will wander away of his own accord. Eventually.

    It takes a while to realize that's the last thing he wants.

    Summary

    As it turns out, there aren’t any rules set in stone for this sort of thing—a demon and an angel wandering the breadth of the world side-by-side, calling it an understanding for the sake of calling it something.
