    Summary

    Geralt remembered a fight, years before, when his leg had been broken. The bone had broken in two places; his knee had shattered. The pain had lasted for days. That had been nine – ten years ago. The bard had been a child then. A tiny child, unable to walk, unable to think from pain. Because of him. It was hard to breathe. When he thought about it too much, it got hard to breathe.

    Jaskier has always known he has a soulmate; a soulmate who is in pain a frankly concerning amount of the time. Geralt isn't sure if he believes that old superstition that witchers have no soulmates, but he knows he isn't bonded to anyone. He is alone, and he likes it that way.

    Or, soulmates feel each other's pain and Jaskier is not having a good time.

    Summary

    The tale goes like this: There is a cottage on a river island deep in the woods of Temeria. In that cottage, an elf has seen ten winters pass, unable to leave his beautiful isle. Dead to the world for an entire decade, the elf last known as Jaskier is pleasantly surprised when none other than Triss Merigold stumbles upon his quaint realm, but hope hurts almost as bad as love does, and he'll need a Witcher to break free from the constraints of a jealous river goddess of old. There is a mountain of things left unsaid between them, a decade of grief and loneliness on either side - but if there's one thing such tragedy is good for, it's bringing them closer to the soft truth lying hidden in the woods.

    Summary

    "I feel you know more about me than I do about you." Geralt realised he'd been scratching off his beer's sticker and stopped. "I was forced to be someone I didn't choose to be for a long time. This, here, I chose this. I want to grow a garden and brew my own beer and keep up the workshop. I seek a quiet life."

    "So do I." Jaskier leaned on the table and settled his foot on Geralt's chair bar. "Many non-humans live here in Portia, under Borch's protection. Your words resonate true so far and I'd hate to see you go. Perhaps, given time, we'll feel comfortable enough to share our stories?"

    Geralt took another sip of his beer and pressed his knee against Jaskier's leg. "I hope so."

    -

    Vesemir passes, and Geralt doesn't want to be a witcher anymore. He's a millenium old and he's tired, and through an old deal, he receives the keys for a house in Portia, in the Alliance of Free Cities. Now that he's retired, he'll have time to try something new, maybe start a small business. If only people would stop calling his home a workshop and giving him commissions of random items to build, that'd be great.
