    Summary

    Reeve had been reasonably certain that no one was in his office.  It seemed like a logical assumption to make, given that he was not there and that no one short of the President had a key.  One day, he would learn to stop assuming anything when he counted the Turks among his friends.

    Summary

    Jaskier is in the next town down a random road, out of the town Roach had been stabled in at the bottom of the mountain, and his chest aches and aches and aches, the way it did before he met Geralt, the way it did every time they were apart. When they met it was a revelation how well Geralt could fill that emptiness, and Jaskier stayed with him for twenty years. Twenty. Years. Despite the harsh words. Despite the way he sometimes heard Jaskier and looked as if he’d just eaten a lemon. Despite the fact that Jaskier knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the witcher tolerated Jaskier because of someone he'd already fucking lost.

    or: Jaskier's got a curse he can't seem to get broken properly, and Geralt has to mourn a person who's standing right in front of him.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The entire Witcher!Jaskier tends to be surprisingly well-written and all the more hilarious when you remember book (so canon, for me) Jaskier spending decades travelling on and off with Geralt and still being enough of a dumbass not to carry any weapon. The kind of dumbass who would go into the middle of a pogrom of non-humans armed with a BROOM if he saw a friend in trouble, when he's canonically pretty enough to have been mistaken for an elf or half-elf before. So, astonishingly brave and loyal, but A MORON WITH THE SURVIVAL INSTINCTS OF A STONED MAYFLY.

    Not my pairing, but the world-building in this fic more than makes up for it.

    Fantastic descriptions of muscle memory confusion and recovery which - even in a world with magic, even for someone with an enhanced healing factor - does not go too fast, and is not certain to be full.

    And the reactions of Jaskier-in-a-Witcher's-body to his own instincts are just... *chef's kiss*
