    Summary

    The memory of this particular town is one of the softer ones, bright and full of color, the air filled with music and song and the heady aromas of spices and savory meats, of tangy fruits and desserts almost too saccharine. Blood, too, from the head of the bruxa he'd killed, but covered by the overwhelming scent of relief that started permeating the town when word spread that the creature was dead.

    He remembers warm sunlight and a gentle summer breeze. He remembers blue, bright and clear: blue eyes beneath a blue sky, shining with mirth, and pink lips that tasted like sweet honey, soft against his own.

     

     

    When Geralt returns to the town where he met a blue-eyed bard that stole his heart, he finds it much less lively than it had been a decade before, despite it being nearly Midsummer. Something haunts the fields, sucking the light and life from the land, and the people are desperate for their peace and traditions back.

    The distinct lack of that blue-eyed bard with a soul as warm as sunlight feels like a terrible, cruel omen.

    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.)

    Summary

    When ambushed by Nilfgaardian forces, Geralt finds himself rendered human. He and Jaskier immediately set out to find a witcher to help them track down the mage. All they have to do is keep Geralt alive until then. In the meantime, Geralt must learn to navigate the world as a human, complete with dull senses, weaker muscles, and oddly familiar emotions.

    The one where Geralt is human and neither him or Jaskier care for it.
    I really liked this.
