    Summary

    Tim is good at galas.

    No, scratch that—Tim is great at galas. He’s been attending them ever since the age of three, when his parents first stuffed him into his little Gymboree tuxedo and gave him a stern lecture about ‘sitting quietly’ and ‘speaking when spoken to.’ He knows all the rules: what to wear, how to stand, when to smile, what to say, what not to say. He knows how to come across as polite and intelligent and charming, and on absolutely any other day, he would be rocking this.

    ---

    Or, my take on a ‘Tim Joins the Family Early’ AU, told through a series of sleepovers—most of which are unplanned.

    Featuring pre-teen Tim, Alive!Jason, and a whole lot of hurt/comfort.

    Summary

    Well, fine. She wasn’t stooping to his level. Inej squared back her shoulders and leaned her mouth close to the door.
    “These walls are thin,” she informed him. “And some of us are trying to sleep for the first time in days. So…could you stomp quieter? Please.”

    The walls are very thin in the old rickety house they called The Slat. Inej attempts to quiet the strange boy who lives above her, but, over the years, gets a whole lot more than she bargained for.

    Summary

    Twenty years ago, the Warlord of the North came down out of the mountains and slew the king of Kaedwen, taking crown and kingdom for his own. Everyone expected him to be overthrown almost immediately, but he has only grown ever more secure in his position. Finally, the other countries around Kaedwen have begun to negotiate with him as they would any other king.

    To seal the new treaty between Redania and the Warlord, Lady Milena de Roggeven, third daughter of the Duke of Roggeven, has been sent to marry whichever of the Warlord’s men he chooses.

    Milena is starkly terrified of everything about her new husband; every rumor she has ever heard about the barbarians of the north seems worse than the last, and Lambert clearly despises the very thought of marriage.

    Lambert of the Wolves is still grieving his lost lover, dead more than three years now. The last thing he wants is to be married off to a terrified stranger, and he can’t imagine why Geralt and Eskel think he of all people is suited to a diplomatic marriage.

    And neither of them suspects the treachery that lies behind the treaty which binds them together.

    Summary

    How do Aren and the mantikittens adapt to life at Kaer Morhen?

    Really only makes sense if you've read the Accidental Warlord AU by inexplicifics, which is absolutely wonderful and the best thing I've read in a while. I wanted to dig into Maja, Zia, Elena, and Ada a bit more as characters, and this is what I came up with!

    Takes place after Into the Light Out of Darkness and Breaking in Measured Thunder

    Summary

    “I don’t know how much use I’ll be, protection-wise, is all,” Jaskier finishes. “I can’t fight for shit.”

    “You do fine,” Geralt tells him.

    OR: Jaskier takes Yennefer and Ciri to Oxenfurt. He proves, to himself mostly, that being human is good enough.
