    Summary

    “Would you mind taking the job for me?” Lambert asks of Geralt, saying something about prior engagements with someone - not that it was any of Geralt’s business, and Geralt, being the sap that he is, agrees.

    The simple favour sends Geralt on the trail of a supposed monster preying on virile young men in the last place he’d expect to find anything out of the ordinary: a sad little strip club in a town that fits into a 3 x 3 block area in the middle of nowhere. There’s absolutely nothing of note there, except maybe the live music act, a country singer who seems suspiciously attractive…


    (Basically, what if The Witcher was a modern urban fantasy set in the North American prairies that leans slightly into rom-com vibes.)

    Summary

    The sequel to my fic 'No Filter,' set around the start of season 2 (basically just me slashifying scenes from it).

    After a falling out with Geralt, Jaskier takes up teaching at Oxenfurt Academy. With each passing day, their adventures become more and more of a distant memory...that is, until he lingers a bit too long after class one night and is abducted by a hooded stranger with a penchant for pyromania.

    Tossed back into shit creek without a paddle, he and Geralt will be forced to face new threats, new monsters, and - worst of all - each other after one whole year apart.

    Summary

    Another post mountain fic???? From me??? It's more likely than you think. Also just a lot of pining and aching from Jaskier because he's realizing it's over and Geralt meant it. It's just not a happy time

    Summary

    “You’re not the only one left hurting from Geralt’s actions, Jaskier.”

    “Then why are you so.. put together, and I’m falling apart?” Jaskier mumbled, swirling the wine once again- slowly lifting it to his lips to take another sip, only for Yennefer to hold it there, letting Jaskier swallow down every drop before waving the lady back over, watching as she refilled Jaskier’s glass a normal amount.

    “Oh, don’t be stingy, dear- fill it to the top, please?” Yennefer was hard to say no to. Neither Jaskier nor Yennefer were shocked to see her comply, leaving the two alone once again.
    “Because you let him hold you together, love.”

    ———
    Day 16 of angstober! Yennefer and Jaskier talk over a steak dinner after the mountain. Confessions are heard and feelings are shared.

    Summary

    Rience ruined him. Physically and emotionally, invading his mind and body- so terribly violated that he can’t find his tears when Geralt kneels before him. When the witcher finally grovels, when Geralt finally begs and pleads and apologizes- but it’s too late, isn’t it?

    It’s a horrible feeling, knowing how you should feel, how you would’ve felt, but not feeling anything at all. The cruel irony of it all is that he remembers so vividly telling Yennefer how he was afraid, how he laid his heart out in a docked ship to the woman who’d save him a touch too late.

    He knows it. He knows what he should feel and how he should feel it, he knows how he should show it- he knows how Geralt wants him, how Nilfgaard needs him.

    ———

    Day ten of angstober! Apathy. Jaskier’s emotions and control in general have been filled down since Rience got ahold of him- he’s lost control of himself and lost his ability to feel in the process.

    Summary

    If you had told Geralt a year ago that he would soon find his soul mate, he would have smiled slightly and declared you insane. He would also have emphasized that there was no such thing for Witcher. They were killing machines, themselves beasts fighting others, only they looked human - but they weren't. Not to mention they took money for their services.
    In short, all things considered.
    There were no soul mates for Witchers. How wrong he was…

     

    Or in Jaskier's words.
    He knew that his soul mate was waiting for him out there, young, quite naive but adventurous, so he went out to find him. Especially since his father had told him he was a witcher, Jaskier at least had a limitation to work with. So it was only a matter of time before he found him, good thing he had plenty of time.

    Summary

    Jaskier, sleepless as he has been almost every night since he came to Kaer Morhen, flops dispondantly in his bed and then hisses between his teeth when it jolts his hand and sends a shock of pain rippling up through his arm. The throb of it has contributed to his sleeplessness, and it’s stunning, how a little movement can make it hurt so much. He grips the wrist of that hand with his other and squeezes, breathing through the pain as it ebbs in waves until it settles to the usual burning pain it stays at.

    Once it’s at a manageable level of pain once more, he turns more gingerly, staring at the lines of stone making up his ceiling. Idly, he wonders how many tons of stone are above him, and then he makes himself quit that line of thought when it makes his stomach flip with anxiety, imagining it all crashing down on him, squeezing the very breath from his lungs, burying him in agonizing darkness-

    He jerks himself upwards, swinging his legs over the side of the bed.

    He makes an annoyed, frustrated sound, and then repeats it in case doing it twice will make him feel better.

    Summary

    Jaskier was born with the gift of prophecy as one of his greatest talents. The problem is that he also seems cursed, which makes his true prophecies unlikely to be believed.

    Summary

    “And yet, my dear witcher, you haven’t aged one bit since the day I met you.”

    “Haven’t I?”

    “Mm-hmm.”

    “Haven’t I really?” Geralt murmurs again. Jaskier untangles their tight embrace to see the witcher’s worried frown. “All these years, for all you've seen me misplaced in time. Do I never look older than I am now?”

    Geralt and Jaskier are determined to build a life together, but whatever blessing or curse that makes time travel possible may also bring doom to their intertwined fate.

    Summary

    "JULEK NO!" He heard Levana scream as he collided with Violet, his claws digging into her chest.

    Wide gold eyes peered clear back at him, her hands grasping his wrists in agony. A sob tore from his lips as he pulled his claws free and her into his arms. "I'm sorry, I'm so sorry Vi, you gave me no choice."

    Summary

    “Are you ok?” He finally manages, hating this silence, hating seeing something wrong in Jaskier and not being able to fix it. There’s immediate regret that he’s bypassed the laws of whatever was between them, that he’s overstepped and invaded Jaskier’s privacy.

     

    The reply is simple and quiet and expected. “I’m fine.”

    “Jaskier-” Geralt prompts before he can stop his tongue. But that’s all it takes. “Sometimes,” Jaskier starts and now he’s looking at Geralt and he’s all the Witcher can focus on. “I can still feel the phantoms of flames licking at my fingers.” His gaze is unwavering and something dark and cold lies in its shadow.

    OR
    An unexpected, dramatic outpour of emotions after some of the most painful, exhausting days of Jaskier's life results in both him and Geralt uncovering a dangerous secret about Jaskier that could change everything he ever knew about himself and hurt the people around him.

    Spoilers: It does in fact change a lot about Jaskier and ends up hurting Geralt too.

    Summary

    “We can leave,” his witcher says, no trace of judgment in his tone, no condemnation of Jaskier’s weakness. He could leave, he knows. Geralt would let him and would never bring it up again, no matter how much time they’d wasted getting here.

    The knowledge lets him give Geralt a tremulous smile.

    “I can do this,” he says, and Geralt leans over, giving him a soft, sweet kiss.

    “I don’t doubt it, but if you want to leave, we leave,” Geralt tells him, pressing their foreheads together briefly. “I don’t care if it’s the middle of the service, and we have to jump over the coffin,” Jaskier laughs wetly at this, “we leave when you want to.”

    Jaskier closes his eyes briefly and leans more into the contact.

    “I love you,” he says, voice only a little strained.

    Geralt kisses him once more and then pulls back, leading them on.

    Summary

    “Jaskier…” Geralt whispered, bringing a hand up to cup the bard’s tear-streaked face.

    Jaskier looked away, turning from Geralt’s outstretched hand. “Don’t, fuck—” Jaskier’s voice was suddenly coarse. The scent Geralt had caught when he entered the room spiked aggressively in the air. The bard brought his hands up to his own face, pressing the heels into his eyes in a manner the Witcher would’ve thought painful. After a moment of rigid stillness, Jaskier inhaled raggedly and, on the exhale, made a sound that made Geralt feel as though his own essence were draining away. It was low and quiet compared to the gasping breath the bard had taken, but transformed into a baying wail, an inhuman keening. Geralt had heard similar sounds a few times in his life, always when a person fell into unfathomable despair, usually at the death of a loved one. This was the first time he’d heard someone he cared for make that sound.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Geralt takes Jaskier home to Kaer Morhen, where things are far from simple. When Jaskier is injured on the trail up the mountain and Geralt is called away, the bard finds that his own mind is a formidable foe.

    Summary

    “Fuck-” Geralt let out at the movement, that feeling of someone else’s touch, however brief. He spun around to meet the face of another man, with short brown hair, electric blue eyes and a hesitant smile.

    Or, a The Witcher/Hadestown AU, in which characters from The Witcher take the place of Hadestown characters. Will the journey turn out well this time?
