    Summary

    “Don’t you trust me?” Geralt asked.

    “With my life? Yes. With my dignity? No.”

    “Didn’t know you had any to lose.”

     

    ---

     

    One by one, Jaskier loses his senses. Though according to Geralt, he never had any sense to begin with.

    Summary

    “Come here,” Jaskier said softly, gathering up the front of Geralt’s clothes and tugging him closer. Geralt blinked those foreign, golden eyes a little owlishly, out of sorts. It was good, in a way, to know that Geralt felt just as unsure, just as wrong-footed about the situation, and it made something warm and tender blossom in Jaskier’s chest.

    Summary

    'Surely if ever there was a time to tell Gimli it was then, flush with an impossible victory.

    Except he had said nothing, for there was ever more to do and never time, never time to pull Gimli aside and taste the mouth hidden beneath the fall of his moustache, to fit his slim, Eleven hands into ones coarse with callouses from the handle of an axe, to tell Gimli that every song Legolas sang, every smile and laugh and every step forward he had taken since their path darkened was bolstered only by Gimli at his side, to speak to him of Elvish courting rituals and run his fingers through Gimli’s russet hair and ask if he would allow Legolas to twist an Elvish braid in it, something to mark to all the world, even if only his Elven eyes would understand, that Gimli was tied to him.

    To ask Gimli to teach him all the impossible ways their bodies might fit together.'

     

    The night before the Battle of the Black Gate, and several days after.
