    Summary

    “Shit,” Jaskier swore, knowing what was going to happen even before he saw it: with all his weight back on them, Geralt’s legs buckled, folded. There was no grace to it, only hard impact against the wooden floorboards, and Jaskier winced. But Geralt didn’t stop there, didn’t simply sit and rest; no, his torso pitched forward, elbows bracing before his head could hit the floor, at least.

    “Geralt!” Jaskier was by his side again in an instant, kneeling next to him, hands fluttering helplessly. He didn’t know where to touch, where it was safe. It was dark, the room’s lamps not yet lit and only faint moonlight coming through the window. “Shit. This is bad. Real bad.” It took a lot to best a Witcher. Even more so the White Wolf. Venom, usually, if Geralt’s halting recounts of past fights were any believable source.

    “What do I do?”

    -or-
    Jaskier takes care of Geralt, and then 'takes care' of him some more

    Summary

    Jaskier has written a lot of ballads about some woman who has stolen his heart. The thing is, he's been on the road with Geralt for the past month. He hasn't had any time to court a woman, much less have his heart broken by her. So who is this woman? The answer may shock you.

    //

    “There’s no lady,” Geralt says.

    Jaskier trails off. “Well, of course not,” he says instead. “I imagine a woman would take grave offense to the frequency with which we give our patronage to brothels, not to mention your unseemly habit of bathing in monster blood and other revolting gunk.” He wrinkles his nose. “Perhaps I should write an ode to your masterful powers of observation next.”

    “But you were talking about a woman tonight,” Geralt continues, ignoring Jaskier entirely.

    Summary

    Laurent DeVere is a journalist with ambitions that reach higher than the work he’s given. Then, Senator Damianos Akielos walks into his office with the scoop of a lifetime about his brother, Kastor. But the story needs delicate, dangerous work.

    Under the guise of a relationship, the two begin to work together closely, and find themselves grappling with the fact of both Kastor on their heels, and their emerging - and entirely unprofessional - feelings for each other.
