    Summary

    Julian "Jaskier" Pankratz is a nineteen-year-old student at Cambridge University studying Politics and International Relations. He hates it, and he's at risk of being kicked out for poor academic performance. Failure would mean returning to his family home, and that's just not an option. He wants to travel the world singing about death and destiny; heroics and heartbreak. So he needs to pass. He takes an elective module in English Literature on love poetry, firstly because it'd piss his father off, but also because he's heard the professor has an interesting PhD student.

    A passing interest begins to transform into something a whole lot more, and Jaskier finds himself faced with hard truths about life, about the society in which he lives and about himself. Society glorifies heroes and the sacrifices they make. But what happens to them when they're no longer useful?

    Title is taken from the song: "If These Scars Could Speak" by Citizen Soldier.
