    Summary

    Julian was supposed to toss his Amulet of Bonding into the river before his twenty-first birthday, for his soulmate to retrieve it, but he’s been avoiding this responsibility for eleven months. When he finally decides to let go, fate seems to have other plans for him. Forget about soulmates, forget about family responsibility: run off and become Jaskier, the travelling entertainer. But he soon learns that it’s hard to outrun his past—and even harder to outrun his future.


    AKA: The hilariously overdramatic, vaguely 19th-century-esque soulmate AU where Jaskier is a coward and Geralt is allergic to feelings. And other nonsense.

    Summary

    Geralt has always been a little afraid of losing control. And after what happened the last time, it's not an unreasonable worry, one which the Council shares. He's been watched since he left Kaer Morhen, but he's always been... perfect. Kept himself in control, never done anything to create a reason to come after him.
    And then he meets a girl. A girl with a grudge against a sorcerer, who asks him to give her her revenge. And he fucks it up worse than anything else in his life.
    ---
    Julian has always told himself that he doesn't mind being a Witcher. It's not like he's got another choice, after all. But when the Council asks him to take down a half-feral fugitive, he starts to think that might not be true anymore.

    Summary

    “For you!” Julian cried, shoving a fistful of weeds in Renfri’s direction, his smile wide and carefree.
    Renfri carefully took them in her hands that were only shaking a little bit now, smearing red onto green stems and yellow petals.

    Julian clambered into the bed beside her and crawled halfway onto her lap. “I got you flowers, ‘cause you’re so pretty like them!”

    “These aren’t flowers, they’re weeds.” Renfri told him, rolling her eyes but allowing the contact with ease. Somedays it seemed like Julian was the only person in the entire castle who wasn’t afraid of her.

    “They look like flowers.” He said, crinkling his nose.

    “They’re dandelions,” Renfri informed her brother with a tiny smile, “They grow everywhere, even places they perhaps shouldn’t. That’s why they’re a weed.”

    “Perhaps they’re a little like you,” She teased, “Growing in even the scariest of places with no fear.” Like a monster’s heart, she doesn’t say.

    “Like a superpower!” Julian gasped.

    Renfri separated one dandelion from the little clutch and reached out to tuck it behind a little ear. “For the stubborn hero, Jaskier.

    Summary

    A curse, his mother used to call it, voice twisted and sharp, looking at him with narrowed eyes over the rim over her spectacles. A blessing, his grandmother used to say, her voice quiet and weathered. There is power in the choice we make, choosing to love, she used to tell him. The Old Wood knows this, it just shows it more literally than most.

    Jaskier doesn't mean to fall in love. He does anyway.

    Summary

    Geralt can’t help but wonder who would follow a Witcher into the woods. The off-beaten path isn’t safe for anyone.

    He sets up camp in a clearing. Still no definitive sign of his pursuer.

    Until he just… swaggers into Geralt’s camp.

    A Witcher.

    A young Witcher.
