    Summary

    The only plot here is these two dummies seeing more in each other than the world does and falling madly in love.

    “What I want to know is,” Jaskier continued. “has anyone ever...taken care of you?”

    “Taken care of me? Of course. That’s what I pay for after all,” answered Geralt.

    “No, no. I don’t mean orgasm.” said Jaskier. “I mean. Taken care of you.  Taken you. Have you ever utterly surrendered?”

    “You and your pretty words,” said Geralt. “Be plain, Jaskier.”

    Jaskier said.  “Fine. Has anyone ever fucked you until your toes curled?” 

    Geralt was still and thought a moment before he answered. “That isn’t usually what people want from me.”

    “Yes, but people are tragically unimaginative. No one is only one thing. Least of all you.”

    “I suppose that’s true,” answered Geralt.

    Summary

    Jaskier was starting to wonder if Geralt had left, or had decided to ignore him, when there was a low voice in his ear. It was close enough that Jaskier felt hot breath tickling his neck, sending tingles down his spine, his skin erupting into goosebumps.

    “I heard you, Jaskier.”

    Jaskier knows he's got feelings for Geralt. Which makes things awkward when Geralt asks him to perform privately for him... and a lover. Blindfolded, Jaskier isn't sure what to anticipate - but after Geralt's so-called lover leaves after only a few minutes, it quickly becomes apparent that his plans are quite different to what Jaskier is expecting.

    Summary

    Jaskier is a singer, so it’s only right that he’s given a name for a bird. But Geralt, who’s spent nearly fifteen years at Jaskier’s side, has never been fully convinced that his friends and accolades have chosen the right bird.

    People keep calling Jaskier “Lark”. It’s an odd nickname - one that Geralt doesn’t understand... But he wants to. Of course, it’s only after he tries out the name himself that he realises what it really means - and what Jaskier's now expecting of him.

    Summary

    Three weeks into their delightful slog across Westeros, during yet another charming day of shitting in the woods, eating half-raw squirrel, and trudging his feet bloody, the single most dour and uninteresting woman Jaime had ever met in all of Westeros stopped in the middle of a field, drew a deep breath, and said, “When I was seven, my aunt came to visit with her son. My father told me that as the daughter of the house, it was my duty to show hospitality to my guests and to be gracious to them. I wanted to make him proud. So for three weeks, I let my cousin follow me around and talk to me about spiders.”
