    Summary

    "You'll change your mind one day," says the innkeep. "The road can't love you back."

    What a strange way to flatten something so beautiful, Jaskier thinks. What a small way to love.

    Or: When Jaskier is hit with a curse that prevents him from having sex, he's lucky that the first person he meets is a Witcher. It's even luckier that Jaskier is used to hitting the road, because Geralt isn't waiting up.

    Summary

    Geralt's muscles heave backwards, flinging him down against the bed. He tries to struggle upwards but it feels like he’s been buried beneath a mountain. Every inch of him is pressed completely still. His eyes close, and he’s left in the dark with nothing but his racing heart for company. He’s not tired, he’s never been less tired. But the curse wants him to sleep, it seems. It’ll force him to lie here until he does. How much of his life will it start to control, now that he’s declared war against it? Now that he knows it’s lurking in his bones, now that it doesn’t have to be subtle?

    He swallows. Takes a long, deep breath, gathering every bit of courage he has to stop himself from slipping back into panic. He still has control over his lungs. He still has that.

    For now.

    (Or: Witchers don't retire. They stay on the Path until it kills them. They hunt monsters and they want nothing from life. This isn't exactly by choice.)

    Summary

    “Well, that’s a separate issue entirely, isn’t it?” Jaskier says, clearly enthused by being taken on. “I’m opposed to marriage on principle. Would you like to know why?”

    “No,” says Geralt.

    “I’ll tell you why,” says Jaskier.

    Summary

    The Niflheim Empire is experimenting on human-animal hybrids, trying to make the perfect soldier. When one of their experiments is stolen by Lucian soldiers, it's decided that the best thing to do would be to remove the non-human appendages and raise the child as a human. No-one thinks about the issues that this might cause.

    Or: Prompto is a catboy, and it's such a big secret that even he doesn't know about it.

    Summary

    Out on a mission, Cor Leonis finds a teenager, lost and sick and partway to becoming an MT. Against the advice of all and sundry, he brings him back to Insomnia. There's not a lot of love lost for MTs in the Citadel, but some of its inhabitants may still be young enough to put aside their prejudices.
