    Summary

    Jaskier was only vaguely aware that the bookstore opposite his florist shop, Buttercups and Dandelions, had closed. He became slightly more aware when a group of builders took up residence in the empty shop, as they made an awful lot of noise while they worked. Curiosity came into play when the shop’s new storefront was revealed. Chaos Tattoos, it proclaimed. Jaskier noticed the same group of five women entering and exiting the shop on a regular basis.

    The day before Chaos Tattoos was set to open, Jaskier was behind the counter making flower arrangements when the bell above his shop's front door tinkled. He turned, standing in the entrance to his shop was one of the women he’d seen going in and out of the new tattoo parlour. The first thing Jaskier noticed about her was that she had black hair, he didn’t get a chance to notice a second thing because she turned to face him and his brain short circuited.

    “I’m from Chaos across the road, name’s Yennefer. We wanted to know if you sold potted plants or just cut flowers?” she asked.

    Jaskier stared at her for a moment before blurting, “Yes,” and clamping his mouth shut with an audible click.

    Summary

    Outside the moon hung like engorged fruit, dripping with summer light. Too bright. Geralt squeezed his eyes shut and hated the pupils that he had yet to govern correctly. He was eighteen – nineteen? Fuck, he couldn’t remember – but here he was, bedfellows with bad dreams and weaknesses.

    “Nightmare?” Eskel’s voice was little more than a whisper, but Geralt flinched at the sound of it anyway. He hadn’t heard his best friend’s awakening. Thought he’d been quiet enough to prevent it.

    “Sorry.” Geralt said, shame curling within him.

    “Geralt.” Eskel sighed. “What have I told you? I don’t care what the masters say. I get the dreams, too.”

    Or: Geralt has a nightmare, and Eskel provides comfort that turns into something more.

    Summary

    Left in the wake of Geralt’s ire on the mountain, Jaskier descends. Geralt follows after taking time to meditate, and begins to realise that he’s started something devastating that he may not be able to navigate.

    Obviously inspired by the events of Netflix’s Witcher, Episode Six, although from here it’ll go waaay out of canon. And the bold/italicised lyrics – I shouldn’t need to say – but they are from ‘Landslide’ by Fleetwood Mac.
