    Summary

    The post is yours, if you’re still interested. Yennefer said you amused her and Ciri wouldn’t shut up about you, so I guess I’ve no choice. 
     
    -Sir Geralt of Rivia

    Jaskier is a tutor that can't hold down a job. Sir Geralt of Rivia is a scandalous gentleman getting his hands dirty for the good of the Empire with a literal witch of an ex-wife living in his North Tower and an unruly, mysteriously-acquired daughter who has run off the previous five governesses. Billowing shirts? Suffering a fever after sprinting across the rain-soaked moors? Hastily unfastened breeches in the eerie library? Hunting parties that end in mayhem? It's all here.

    Summary

    Somewhere in Massachusetts, a nervous boy will click on a YouTube video entitled "Bad Bob's Best Bouts Vol. 4: 1987, Boston". He'll watch, wide-eyed, as Robert Zimmermann and a man in a Bruins sweater square off and shake out of their gloves, circling each other like dogs.

    "Good lord," the boy will whisper as a blurry video of two large hockey players rolling around on the ice plays on his laptop. He'll watch as the two of them leave smears of blood in their wake, listen as commentators crow about penalty minutes and well-deserved nicknames. He'll tab back to the Wikipedia page of the man his teammates had been talking about, eyes widening as he reads.

    And then he gets to the personal life section.

    But all of that... The boy, the computer, the teammates astounded at the boy's ignorance... All of that comes later. Twenty-seven years later.

    For now it's 1987, and a young actress has just gone to see a hockey game.

    Summary

    One would think that having the name of one's soulmate appear on one's wrist on one's sixteenth birthday would make matrimony much less complicated. It mostly does not. And not at all for Miss Elizabeth Bennet of Longbourne.

    (A deconstruction of the "soulmate identifying mark" trope, using "Pride and Prejudice." Trigger warnings in the tags.)
