    Summary

    Jaskier’s nemesis can by no means be at her lowest point when he vanquishes her, he tells himself, so he… helps. That’s his thing, now, he helps where he can.

    There is little to his name, but what little he has, he is willing to share. A homey cottage off the coast in his birth name. It’s been untended but for spiders and dust for years now, but it’s the only real property he was able to hold onto post being blotted from the Pankratz lineage. It’ll do fine for a recovering mage on the run who otherwise would never be caught dead inside it.

    All previous encounters imply she’d never be caught dead in bed with Jaskier either, but—well.

    They’re both going through a rough patch.

     

    (Yennefer and Jaskier spend some time licking their wounds together.)

    Summary

    "You know what you need, piglet. Your magic. You’re running out of time."

    There was a pressure, a ringing in her ears. At the tip of her tongue was the compulsion to say the words. To say the words that would pull her into the realm, the hut, of the Deathless Mother. Back on to her path. Put her where she was meant to be.

    "Show me what you want. Heal your wounds, you know the words. Say them!"

    When had Yennefer ever done what she was told?

    “GET OUT OF MY HEAD!”

    *

    Major s2 Spoilers. Canon Divergence from s2e5. Yennefer escapes the guards holding her captive, breaks Jaskier out of prison, and together they head off to warn Geralt and his child surprise of the danger coming for them.

    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.)
