    Summary

    Jaskier's father was a man his mother loved with an intensity that he never understood. Until he met a witcher and decided that this is the man that he would follow to the ends of the world and beyond. This is a man that he will follow, come heaven, hell, and his own mortal end. Until his feet refuse to walk, until his last breath escapes his lungs.

    But Jaskier isn't mortal. He is much of his father's son as he is his mother's and his father is the farthest from a mortal there is and yet at the same time, the closest thing to a human.

    Or: Jaskier is very much like his mother and is not the only one in the family who fell in love with someone long-lived and not quite human.

    Summary

    Geralt is just supposed to pass through the quiet Lettenhove area. He's not anticipating being begged by its people to help save their viscount from a curse that keeps him from daylight. Lord Jaskier, they call him, and he's likely dying.

    As Geralt struggles to untangle the ugly web of history that has lead to the increasingly complicated curse, he finds himself spending more and more time with the strange young viscount and wondering just what he might have been before the curse, and who he might be after. But things are not always as they seem, and as the curse tightens its grip on Jaskier, Geralt is forced to face the fear of failing yet another person whose choices were stolen from them.

    Or-

    Jaskier is kept from becoming a bard. Geralt finds him anyway.

    Summary

    [“Snap your fingers at me one more time, and I’m taking them off,” Zuko snarls at him after being snapped at once too often. Zhao rubs a hand over his sideburns and eyes him.

    “Your uncle hasn’t taught you manners yet?”

    “Sorry,” he replies, not sorry at all, “Snap your fingers at me one more time and I’m taking them off, Admiral.” He sees Uncle’s warning stare and shuffles a pace backwards. He hates Zhao and Zhao hates him, and they both hate the stupid game they have to play of feigned politeness when really, they each want the other to drop dead where they stand.]

    Or,

    Zuko is tired of Zhao’s nonsense, an important talk about surrender is a long time coming, and the Seige of the North is an absolute mess.

    Summary

    Jaskier was a shapeshifter. It was as simple as that.

    Except for nothing was ever simple with him. Especially not since that white haired man had rescued him. Protected him. Healed him. Saved him.

    What other option did he have but to try and return the favor?

    Summary

    The man doesn’t smell of fear. He hasn’t, ever since that first moment, eagerly bouncing on his heels, when Geralt had walked into his lord’s court. He smells of excitement and interest, and a little bit of lust too. It’s a woody scent, and it wraps around Geralt endlessly, no matter how much he tries to ignore it. It’s annoying to have enhanced senses in those moments. He really wants to be able to block it out, to keep the bard out of his thoughts.

     

     

    ---

    After a hunt gone ever so slightly wrong, Geralt finds himself entangled in matters that he doesn’t understand. Jaskier, who he had believed to be a simple, if annoying, bard, bursts into flames, and afterwards has no recollection of his life beyond a few basics. Without realizing what it will entail, Geralt accepts the task of helping Jaskier regain his memories. There are more than a few bumps on that path, however, but Jaskier and Geralt are determined.
