    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

    "Thrown out already?" Geralt asks, and sees the bard shaking his head from the corner of his eye.

    "Hardly! But a wise bard knows when to leave the audience wanting more."

    "I've never met one."

    "One what?"

    "A wise bard," he says, and glances over to see the bard's mouth flapping indignantly.

    "I -- am going to let that go, because you're right, where are my manners." He ducks in front of Geralt as they step onto solid ground, forcing him to halt, and gives him a bow, no less graceful for being quickly executed. "Jaskier, troubadour, poet -- and barker -- at your service."

    __________________________________

    Geralt assumes the bard will wander away of his own accord. Eventually.

    It takes a while to realize that's the last thing he wants.

    Summary

    "A quiet companion, a noble friend! / Has no compunctions 'bout biting your end!" Jaskier stops, frowns, and repositions his fingers on the lute's neck as if trying to work something out.

    "Are you singing to Roach?" Geralt asks, leaning over the saddle horn. "I'm not hallucinating?"

    Jaskier looks up and smiles brightly, cheeks pink from the sun. Something in Geralt... doesn't like this. "Well, you do take excellent care of her, but a little praise can go a long way, you know."

    Summary

    What Geralt doesn’t know is that in the years they’ve travelled separately, Jaskier has actually met several Witchers.

    Like """"met"""" them.

    They fucked. And here's how!

    Summary

    “It’s a building,” he says. “We should be able to weather out the storm there for a night or two.” 

    “Oh, good!” he says. “I hope the people there are welcoming. Well, considering the general behavior of the locals… I’m sure I can charm them into at least letting us sleep in the stables with Roach.” 

    That turns out to be unnecessary. The place is empty and silent.
