    Summary

    Jaskier hums. “Is it true what they say about snake venom?”

    “What?” Letho snaps impatiently.

    “You know,” he says, twirling his hand meaninglessly, and Letho definitely doesn’t know. “That if you drink it enough, you’ll be immune to snake bites?”

    Letho actually looks up at him and is forced to contend with the idea that he’s being followed by a lunatic.

     

    (Letho doesn’t mean to keep Jaskier, but quickly realizes he’s… attached.)

    Summary

    Ling clears his throat and adopts a more nasal tone, reminiscent of an older man. “Your hair is a gift from your parents, you know.”

    “Is that so,” says Ed, tone as dry as his hair. He taps a finger against his knee in consideration—subtler than scratching his chin like a brooding villain. “Well, if you think about it in genetic terms, sure. Your biological parents’ genes combine to produce what your hair looks like—”

    Ling tugs harmlessly on a limp strand of hair. “Once an alchemist, always an alchemist.”

    Three times Ling styles Ed's hair, and one time Ed styles Ling's.

    Summary

    Epilepsy. His was caused through genetics but it isn’t always. The doctor talked with Granny and they spoke of pills from the bigger cities that their small family could not afford. He only had seizures, they wouldn’t kill him. Probably.

    Or: Ed has epilepsy but still does everything he does in canon. He gets some god damn comfort and they love him.

    Summary

    Ling was supposed to be meeting his future husband. Not right now, but soon. Far too soon.

    When he was a child, before his mother had unveiled the curse of his lineage, he had dreamed of love. He had dreamed of sweet arms around his shoulders. He had dreamed of his love’s hair tickling his nose while they laid under the Xing stars and fell asleep.

    And now his heart was breaking.
