    Summary

    Napoleon Solo spent so much of his life taking. Taking, taking, taking, and laughing in the face of the law.

    Now, however, he watches the sun slip bronze around Gaby's bare arms, gold through Illya's honeyed hair, and he wants, wants, wants.

    But this is one thing he cannot simply take.

    Summary

    When Geralt was a child his mother kissed his forehead, wove flowers in his hair, and let him dance around the campsite they shared with the other druids. He loved dancing, the way his body moved and flowed; he was like water.

    And then she left him in the road, spilled water on his feet, and a faint trail of dust where she and the cart were no longer. And a man came and took Geralt and made him into something new.

    “Were you short? Waifish? Did those witcher mutagens turn you into, you know, the hulking sexy man that you are? At least they gave you such male perfection, what with the stubble and the jaw and the--”

    “Shut up, Jaskier.”

    (Or, Geralt is cursed with a female body during their travels. Only it's not so much a curse as a gift she didn't know she so desperately desired until now.)

    Summary

    Optimist. He calls Jaskier that like it’s a dirty word. Jaskier smiles with it, loves it, repeats it until Geralt shuts him up, either a poke to the ribs or a kiss that swallows it all, and god – Jaskier’s mouth is just as forceful no matter what use he puts it to.

    (Or: Geralt gets a tattoo, and finds home.)

    Summary

    This had been a mistake. His Jaskier, warm where Geralt was cold, soft edges where Geralt had hardened, Jaskier who fucking smiled when Geralt looked at him and fell in love like it was something you could give away for free. Jaskier who found the plainest girl in the room and danced with her until dawn as though it was an honour, leaving her flushed and her enemies jealous. Jaskier who used touch to talk just as much as he used words –

    The warm body beside Geralt shifts and rolled over, and Geralt keeps his back turned, keeps looking over the side of the bed at the broken floorboard and the sharp nail sticking out of it, anything other than turning and finding –

    Jaskier.

    (or: after finally falling into bed together, Geralt wakes up and promptly freaks out. Thankfully his bard knows him.)
