    Summary

    Everyone is more in Ard Carraigh: more beautiful, more tempting. Whatever one wants, the magic grants. Geralt could break through the glamour’s hold, should he so wish, but he knows the spell also protects him from the scrutiny of the other guests. They can't see him truly bare. One look at his scars and his mutations—his faults—and it’s over. He dares not risk any suspicion regarding his place here. No, the magic will hold—he'll make sure of it.

    (Or: Geralt attends an annual masquerade and catches feelings for Jaskier a guest. AKA, the ten thousandth Witcher orgy fic nobody asked for.)

    Summary

    “What possible use could Princess Josiane have for a revenant?” Thom demanded, bursting in on Delia at breakfast.

     

    “Thom, this is highly improper,” Delia complained. “I’m doing my best to re-establish myself as a lady of the court, and –”

     

    “A revenant, Delia,” Thom said, flinging himself down into a seat and taking a breakfast roll without asking. Delia eyed him resentfully. “A creature of the grave, drawn back from the Black God’s embrace. And besides, you’re my sister-in-law.”

    Delia, Thom, and the Great Resurrected Duke Scandal of 439 HE.

    The Sufferer’s coup was a resounding failure. The Summoner’s, through freak chance, was a bloody and hard-won success. Hemo-discrimination is illegal, now, but old grudges die hard and the higher your blood the worse your chances of making it in the world. The classes that used to be ‘highbloods’ often fall through the cracks, and find work wherever they can get it.

    A story about a "concupiscent hire" walking Alternian streets under the rule of his Imperial Humility, the upheaval of an empire, and the whims of pure serendipity. (tumblr tag: A Heavy Heart>
