    Summary

    Boba Fett likes to be in control. Din Djarin feels more out of control with every passing day. Giving control over to Boba would make both of them happy. Din just doesn't understand why that has to be so complicated.

     

    (Or, rebuilding an entire culture is hard. Boba helps, more or less.)

    Summary

    After completing his mission, Din employs a few ill-advised coping mechanisms and eventually wakes up on Cobb's sofa in Mos Pelgo. It all works out, though. Cobb needs some help with a problem, and Din needs some time to think about the big picture: what it means to live with the consequences of the Creed, and what life might be like in his own skin. He ends up staying longer than expected.

    Summary

    “Word is that you’ve shacked up with Boba Fett, Mando.”

    That tone sent shivers unrelated to the water down Din’s spine. The urge to lash out filled his lungs, but he pushed back on it.

    “You two have history,” he said as evenly as he could.

    He turned and found the Jedi’s face completely void of emotion. His eyelashes were darker, though. Din could see them clearly even from across the river.

    “Do not bring him here,” the Jedi said.

    (Din tries to make a family. Now if only the new members didn't hate each other.)

    Summary

    So, yes, there were plenty of reasons why Geralt hated his job, but the main one, the one that truly got beneath his skin, was that this kind of danger seemed painfully fucking unnecessary to him. Why couldn't people treat those they'd paid to have sex with decently? Why did Geralt's job have to exist? And why did Jaskier have to be so obsessed with crystals?

    The one where Geralt is a bodyguard to Jaskier, the gorgeous, highly strung, risk-taking escort to the London elite.

    Summary

    "Jaskier, how drunk are you?" he asks, and Jaskier breathes a laugh into Geralt's shoulder.

    "I am excellently drunk, Geralt, I've done a very good job of it. I am as drunk as a Skelligen skunk."

    "There are no skunks on Skellige."

    "I am as drunk as a Skelligen monk, then."

    Which is fairly drunk, all things considered; Skelligens don't fuck around about that sort of thing.


    Geralt has been foolish about many things in his long life, and every time to his detriment; he'll not make the mistake of deluding himself that someone like Jaskier, with all the world open to him and everything to offer in return, would ever really choose Geralt's company in that way.

    (Geralt may not be a reliable narrator of his own life.)
