    Summary

    When he gets back, two bowls of stew and a jug of wine balanced precariously in his hands courtesy of a grateful mother, Geralt is exactly where he left him. He’s fast asleep, chest slowly rising and falling beneath the blanket still draped over him.

    Roach glances over and nickers at him softly. “You and me, girl, we’ve got a hell of a job on our hands,” Jaskier whispers to her. “Don’t you worry, though. I’ll stick around for a bit. Help you out.”

    Roach flicks an ear at him, and then goes back to her hay. Jaskier heaves a sigh. “Sometimes I feel so unappreciated.”

    Summary

    A slightly more chronological reading order:
    With a Conquering Air
    I Would Follow Your Soul As It Leads
    Only Love Proudly and Gladly and Well
    I Would Beat With Your Heart As It Beats
    Your Faults Had Made Me Love You More
    Stamped in the Mint of Memory
    All My World Is In Your Arms
    Twirl Three Notes and Make a Star
    I Have Heart-Fire and Singing To Give
    I Am Sandaled with Wind and With Flame
    The Sky Is Luminous
    Home Again From Far-Off Places
    Holding Wonder Like a Cup
    O Soul, I Said, Have You No Tears
    Live On a Hill Against the Sky
    Never Fear the Thing You Feel
    The Debt Is Terrible That Must Be Paid In Song
    My Spirit Is Still Glad of Breath
    The Shadow of the Mountains Will Not Fall
    The Minting of a Gold-Crowned King
    As the Unchanging, Many-Colored Sea
    Oh, Be For Me The Sky
    The Old Wild, Restless Sorrow
    Then Will Love Be Kind To Thee

    Summary

    When in search for a tragic hero, no one would have thought to look twice at Henry Tilney. His life may have begun promising, being born under the roof of a former abbey as the second son of a very stern military man, but from this point on both Henry’s situation in life and his disposition were entirely against him…

    [A full rewrite of Jane Austen's “Northanger Abbey”, this time told from the perspective of Henry Tilney. Since the original is named for the Tilney’s home, I thought this reimagining should be named for the Morland’s.
    Written to be canon compliant, historically accurate and in the style of the original work.]

    Summary

    Jaskier didn’t want to marry just any noblewoman--no matter how comely she may be--he wanted adventure and many loves, but most importantly his biggest, greatest love of all.

    He is not expecting that love to be in the form of a brooding stranger sitting at the back of a tavern.

    In one instant his breath catches in his throat at the beauty of the man before him and in the next, there’s a burning sensation on the bottom of his heel as his mark makes itself known. It’s pain and pleasure knotted together, roses surrounded by thorns.
