    Summary

    Andromache tells him: "The Greeks used to have seven different words for love. Well. More, probably. But I remember seven." She shrugs. "There are many ways to love one another, and life is long. We've time enough for them all. It's the only thing that makes it worthwhile."

    Nicky and his immortal family, over the centuries.

    Summary

    “Hey, so this is where you ended up,” Jaskier said, sliding into the chair across from Geralt in the sad truck-stop diner 50 kilometres outside of the backwater swamp-dump reporting an infestation of drowners. Jaskier had found the posting on the Witcher forum he shouldn’t know about, but did, in part because he ‘managed’ Geralt’s media presence (unpaid, and un-asked-for) and in part because he was a nosy bitch.

    Tracking Geralt down at any point in time was an art form of anticipating what his current driving force might be: money, empathy, or rage.

    Also, sometimes, a nap.

     

    AKA a modern-au where Jaskier is famous on the internet, Geralt is still a Witcher, they hunt monsters and are bad at emotions (sometimes at the same time)

    Summary

    Joe feels it even now, how the smell of salt in the air stirs memories. He vaguely recalls the seaside and ships docking at ports as a young boy, how muscled men would carry crates and sacks filled with all the things they'd traded. He thinks he used to swim in rivers where the water ran blue and crystalline, where fish scattered at his feet when he walked by. Something about the water calls him and leaves him with an ache that stings of home.

    "Are you all right?" Nicky asks in soft Italian.

    Joe turns to him, the sun just missing Nicky's chair. He grins and reaches out to take Nicky's hand, to kiss the back of it.

    "I was just remembering you in a pirate hat," he says.
