    Summary

    Geralt's brother has died, and now he is raising a child on his own. The last thing he needs is an annoying sous-chef who won't leave him alone.

    Or, a variously loose and faithful adaptation of the classic rom-com No Reservations.

    Summary

    After spending a treacherous winter together, Jaskier and Geralt make an arrangement: they travel together for three seasons before Jaskier finds a town or a court to winter over until spring. However, this year Geralt meets Jaskier a little earlier than expected, during Imbaelk. Between holiday celebrations, solstices and plum schnapps, Geralt falls in love and loses his way.

    Summary

    Forced into hiding after a rather unfortunate event with someone his family deems 'the enemy', Julian Alfred Pankratz, rising superstar singer, finds himself back in the Old Country, stuck in a decrepit mansion by his lonesome. His days are filled with endless wandering through the empty rooms and frequent visits to the wine cellar until a storm sweeps something unexpected into his back yard - a girl dressed in white with scared eyes and a bleeding arm.

    Summary

    Jaskier sees the world as it could be: full of beauty. He’s bright in the face of despair, and he spins tales of virtues long lost in the shadow of men’s hearts.

    The world plays favourites.

    Vignettes in which Jaskier is a bit more magic than expected, Geralt is a little kinder, and they meet in the middle.

    Summary

    Getting stuck in Kaedwen in winter had never been on Jaskier's plan. It's cold, they don't appreciate his music and nobody likes their national beverage anyway. The only redeeming thing Kaedwen has is Kaer Morhen, so Jaskier does what any reasonable bard would do in this situation: he decides to charm his way into Kaer Morhen to hibernate with Geralt and the other witchers. If nothing it will be an experience no human has ever had, fuel for songs and poems for years to come, while finally teaching him a thing or two about witchers he's just dying to know.

    Curiosity tended to kill the cat, but Jasker had always seen himself as more of a bird anyway.
