  1. Summary

    While being pursued by a monster the likes of which they’ve never seen, Geralt, Ciri, and Jaskier attempt to escape into another universe. When the portal collapses with Jaskier still in it, he’s thrown off course and someplace that looks similar to home, but is just a little to the left of normal. Now, Geralt and Ciri must travel the multiverse to find him, before the monster catches up to them and devours them all.

  3. Summary

    Yennefer was able to save Jaskier's life after the djinn and Geralt's unintentional wish, but at the cost of his voice. Now the man whose identity was built on his singing, wordplay, and verbal charm has to figure out how to exist in the world without those things. Thankfully, navigating that is easier when you have people who love you trying to help you manage it.

    Summary

    — Merci, maître barde, dit la femme, ravie. C’est un beau cadeau que vous venez de me faire. Laissez-moi vous offrir une prédiction en échange.
    Jaskier se redressa, intrigué.
    — Une prédiction ? Seriez-vous prophétesse, gente dame ?
    Elle rit de nouveau, de son petit rire grinçant qui cachait quelque chose dans son imperfection.
    — Pas tout à fait, répondit-elle lentement. Voulez-vous entendre votre avenir ?
    Jaskier hésita. Une petite voix — qu’il ignorait souvent — lui souffla que ce n’était pas nécessairement une bonne idée, mais qu’y avait-il à craindre ? (...)
    — Je vois de vieilles pierres drapées dans les tempêtes de l’hiver, une nuit trop noire et, lové dans les ténèbres, un amour naissant.
    "Je vois des loups qui veillent sur leurs secrets, qui portent des masques et des armures. Celui qui voudra les en dévêtir n’en sortira pas indemne, mais récompensé de ses efforts.
    "Je vois des âmes perdues, des mystères oubliés, et, pour celui qui a le cœur vaillant, un trésor inestimable."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Darling fic about Jaskier's first trip up to Kaer Morhen (among other things). Had to read it via google translate which wasn't ideal and I'm sure did a disservice to the quality, but it is very engaging and emotionally evocative even WITH that less-than-ideal translation, which makes me wish I could read it in French because Damn.

    Summary

    Geralt wakes up and immediately misses the bliss of being passed out. From blood loss, probably. He doesn't really remember, but his sword arm is completely numb and he has a headache that must have been caused by an angry god. Opening his eyes is not a priority.

    Yes, but waking up means you are alive which is the preferred state for a Witcher to be, Geralt.

     

    Or:
    Geralt loses his memory and needs to figure out how he acquired a bard of all things. Most importantly, he must figure out how to keep him.

    Geralt gets a really nasty bump on the head, forgets 25 years of his life, and thinks he's married to Jaskier. ADORABLE.

    Jaskier gets tied up as bait and just goes HARD into subspace out of nowhere, and then there's fucking and aftercare and it's all quite tender and delicious.

    Summary

    It occurred to Jaskier, as he forced his own feet to move, one ahead of the other, that Geralt hadn’t once shifted from where he stood on the mountain, arms ridged by his side, staring out into the valley, ass clenched like there was no tomorrow.
    He really had just let Jaskier leave.
    Jaskier clenched his jaw. Guess this one is for real then.
    When he arrived back at camp he gathered his things and gave Roach a gentle pat.
    He’d told Geralt “see you around,” but he didn’t think it would happen.
    No, actually, he decided. He was planning on it.

    jaskier and geralt lose each other. it takes a long time to be found again.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    After the Mountain, Jaskier finds himself somewhere people only end up if they're lost. Metaphorically, not literally. Falls in love, builds a family. Loses his love, builds his family a bit bigger.

    He doesn't love Geralt anymore, but he thinks he could, if he had the chance.
