    Summary

    The life Julian always wanted isn't the one he's living, and he's going to have to accept that. He's done plenty well for himself as one of the youngest-ever professors at Oxenfurt Academy. He has friends, even if they've all moved away. A family he loves, even if he doesn't keep in touch. And if the crowds are underwhelmed when he dresses up and calls himself the bard Jaskier, it's only because that life wasn't meant to be his.

    There's no reason for him to doubt this--at least not until his future at the Academy is suddenly up in the air, students start dying in the night, and the Butcher of Blaviken comes to town.

    Summary

    Prompt fill for this prompt at The Old Guard Kink Meme:

    Joe falls in love easily and it's brought him a lot more disappointment than happiness. The people he falls for might be nice in the beginning, but once the honeymoon period is over it seems like they always find something to criticize. So after a string of relationships that always seem to end with his partners being critical of things that make Joe who he is, Joe comes into his 30s convinced he'll never settle down happily.

    Then he meets Nicky, who seems to be genuinely nice and always says the nicest things about Joe's art. Joe has gotten his heart broken too many times to be willing to give this a chance, but over the course of many months and Nicky proving him wrong time and time again, Joe slowly starts to think his love life might not be a lost cause after all.

    Summary

    When the days shorten and the trees shrug off their rusty coats Jaskier knows it is time to head towards Oxenfurt. They are somewhere in Temeria on their way to the little village of Anchor. Any day now, Geralt will feel a particular chill in the air and instinctively steer them towards the Pontar. There, Jaskier will steel himself and make some noise about the cold or the stinginess of the crowd – a prelude to his annual soliloquy about how it is about time he heads towards the harbouring arms of the university and its candelabra’d comforts: sans dirt, sans drowner guts, and sans Witcher.

    He strums his lute and sings, “Oh White Wolf, I fear if you do not hear my plea for an ear to my woe, I shall have to go bare, and just so we’re clear, my pants’ll be the first things to go.”

    Roach huffs, and a coin comes sailing towards him, hitting him in the forehead.

    “Fucking ow, you fuck.”

    Geralt snorts. “Just tossing a coin to my barker.”

    Jaskier is going to miss him so much.

    ***

    Dear Reader, I present to you a tale of love, the value of faith and communication, and quite a ridiculous amount of horse content.

    Summary

    Summer, 1999. Harry comes home with news. Quite a lot of news.

    Harry takes a deep breath.
    “I'm quitting the Aurors,” he starts with, which is followed by a moment of stunned silence.
    “What?” Sirius says.
    “All right," Remus says. “Do you know what else you want to do? Did you think about it?”
    Harry blushes, the way James used to—a rosy glow lighting up his brown skin—and says, “I wanted to—that is, I thought I might be a teacher.”
    Remus, quite suddenly, seems to have something in his eye. "Oh."
    “What?” Sirius says.
    “And uh—there's more. I was thinking I might like to. That is. I want to become an Animagus.”

    Summary

    Geralt has lived a long, long time. He's traveled for an equally long, long time.

    Stopping in a small little saloon, he is hit with familiar sounds - and a familiar scent. But this man doesn't recognize him, doesn't recognize his name. He has a vodoun bodyguard, and a guitar. Geralt is almost willing to believe that his mind is playing tricks on him...

    ...until dark magic is afoot, and the saloon burns down around them. Geralt isn't sure what's going on, but he's going to do his best to help his friend, even if his friend doesn't remember him.
