    Summary

    .

    Then Geralt heard the whisper.

    A slight movement of air like the parting of curtains, open for a moment then gone, powerful and yet empty. An impossible magic flickered through the universe. A wrongness that itched at his skin. And as the unmoment echoed away, it was followed by an agonized sound, halfway to a whimper, halfway to a sob.

    Geralt spun toward it. Instinctively acting against the threat; back across the floor and down, blade held to flesh before a second breath was even drawn.

    But instead of a threat, a naked, terrified man lay, sickly and shivering, on the hot stones by the fireplace. His arms drawn up to hide his face, his knees tight to his chest. Fear and pain written in every contour of his being.

    "Jaskier?"

    ***

    Five years ago, Jaskier had vanished.
    Though Geralt desperately searched for him, no trace was ever found. Not even magic could track him. It was like he had been somehow erased from existence...Then the bard returned, broken and transformed. His body, an intricate tapestry of cruel, beautiful spellwork. Silver threads burned deep into flesh and mind.

    Now magic flowed instead of blood in his veins.

    Summary

    Seeing no other alternatives before him, the witchers really are his best bet at surviving the winter at this point, as much as Jaskier wishes it wasn’t so.

    Summary

    “Hundred crowns and the boy.”

    Geralt opened his mouth to protest but was shocked into silence at a skirmish from the corner as a man was shoved forward, stumbling into the space between the witcher and the merchant. The new arrival stared at the floor, apparently too fearful to even look at a witcher, shoulders cringing and head low.

    “What use have I for a boy?”
     
    Given in payment, a slave is brought to Kaer Morhen to winter with the witchers, scared and silent. Even once he’s been freed it’s a long road to recovery.

    Summary

    It was just short of one hundred years since the day he left Caer Midfen for the last time. It wasn’t so bad living there. Aside from the unspeakable horror of the Trials, Jaskier had found safety in the carved marble halls of the Lark School. He was somewhat aware that being raised, trained, and conditioned as a weapon wasn’t a normal upbringing, but it was a place to thrive. A place to survive. Jaskier didn’t just live, he soared.

    Now, running from Jad Karadin and his men, Jaskier became closer and closer to breaking, to shattering.

    -

    A Witcher Jaskier AU where Jaskier, mutated with hollow bones, seeks the protection of Kaer Morhen while outrunning three hired Cat Witchers.

    Summary

    Taako didn't know what he was thinking when he cast that spell. It had been in a panic, the only clear thought in his head being something along the lines of 'oh fuck shit please don't let me die!' Somehow it had worked, the Queen's guard construct falling under the charm, rushing to his aid and fighting off the shitty mugger.

    It ended up working too well, actually.

    Now Kravitz was stuck protecting this strange wizard, and neither of them were too pleased by this predicament. Instead of guarding the Queen's palace as was his sworn duty he was traipsing around the countryside, trying to help him find a way to dispel the magic. Getting tangled up in Taako's own problems, when all he wanted to do was go home.

    At least, he thought all he wanted to do was go home.

    It turned out, life outside of the palace walls was very confusing.
