    Summary

    Jaskier has had enough. It wasn't only the mountain, but all of the things before, that slowly broke his heart more and more every day. He loved Geralt with his whole heart, knowing it would never be enough, knowing he could never give Geralt all he deserves, but at least wanting to be there for him as a friend. But all he got was harsh treatment and harsher words. So he didn't wait, didn't look for him and left. He's got his own life to return to.

    But what happens, when the times stop being peaceful and the child Jaskier loves like his own is in danger? Will he help her find the man destiny bound her to?

    Summary

    The most important lessons Jaskier learns that day are thus; Geralt never did love him, and Jaskier was a fool. But even fools have their uses, and Jaskier's song does not end on the top of that mountain.

    (Or, after the mountain Jaskier just can't seem to stop running into godsdamned witchers)

    Summary

    “Geralt,” Jaskier begins haltingly, “What—”

    He is cut off by a gasp when Geralt leans down and slowly, gently brushes his lips against the back of Jaskier’s fingers in the faintest of kisses. 

    “What are you doing?” whispers Jaskier.

    “Kissing them better,” says Geralt, as though it’s obvious.

    Summary

    Jaskier blinks up at him, before reaching back into his pocket to pull out a journal. It’s a little one Geralt has never seen before, hardly the size of his hand and held together with a dangling strip of leather. “Axe and—and those,” he answers, wiggling the book for Geralt to take. “The fables stake—stake? Shh—stake. Edges,” he wobbles his hand demonstratively.

    Zigrin, but Geralt isn’t quite sure what that second bit is supposed to mean. He takes the book either way, flipping to the front page.

    Written in large, plain letters across the top of the page: MY NAME IS JULIAN ALFRED PANKRATZ. I USE THE NAME JASKIER THE BARD.

    Geralt’s throat nearly closes up on him as he reads the words.

     

    (It was a long road for Jaskier to get to where he is. Geralt has some catching up to do if he’s going to keep his bard.)

    Summary

    Geralt isn’t sure if it’s a blessing or a curse that their table is tucked away in the corner, where Jaskier can neither see them nor come close enough that he might. As much as he knows that he needs to talk to the bard, apologize for all that he’s said… he can’t help but treasure this moment of Jaskier’s happiness, the joy that he radiates while performing that would surely shatter as soon as he saw the Witcher.

    Even if it’s still Geralt he sings of.

    Summary

    The waves roar as they crash into the cliffs, loud enough to echo through the ages. There is a sheer, stark beauty to it all that steals Jaskier’s breath, suffocates him even half a mile and well over a millennium removed from the Sea’s relentless grasps on this desolate corner of the world.

    How fitting, he thinks as he watches the memory still embedded in these stones, that he started this life with a trip to the edge of the world, and restarts it now at a place equally – if not more so – deserving of that title.


    After the fight with Voleth Meir, Jaskier considers where to go from there.

    Summary

    It’s almost 2 months after the Mountain Incident and Jaskier is sitting at a tavern, drinking his sorrows away. About Geralt, his sorry state of being (no lute, low on coin, alone), fall of Cintra just 2 weeks ago, fate and everything else. He though he was going to stay by the witcher’s side forever, but life’s no fairy tale. So more ale for him.
    In the corner Nilfgaardian soldiers get ready to kidnap the bard and give him to their wicked sorceress leader to force information from him about the lost princess. She may torture and curse him to get what they need, but hey, what can you expect from Fringilla Vigo’s student?

    Geralt’s 100% done with destiny. He’s with Ciri and has to hide from Nilfgaard's forces. And he still has to find Yennefer and beg her to locate his bard, damn it! And he needs to apologise if he wants to get his “dear heart” back.

    Yennefer licks her wound hidden in Brudge and contemplates her life.
    Triss helps fellow mages in Vizima.

    Lambert and Eskel travel south in search of Geralt, because they got letters from his bard saying their brother will need help.
    Oh, and they don’t even know about half of the shitshow it’s about to become. Truly ballad worthy story.

    Summary

    “You’re not mine though”, Jaskier whispers after what might have been hours might have been days, still facing away from Geralt who’s still pressed up against him and holding him close like he never wants to let go again, “and I’m not yours. You don’t even want me” not at all, and especially not like I want you, like I’ve wanted you for half my life.

    The thought hurts, the act of speaking hurts, everything hurts and Jaskier is so, so tired. Even his tears have run out at this point, and his voice remains rough and worn out, barely managing to crawl over his tongue and teeth and lips.

    “I want you more than you would ever believe”, Geralt breathes into the nape of Jaskier’s neck, fighting the urge to pull him even closer, “I’ve wanted you for so long, more than I’ve ever wanted anyone else”

    “You’re right”, Jaskier whispers, and the shape of the words is so sharp he’s half surprised he doesn’t taste fresh blood in their wake, “I don’t believe that”

    ___

    Wouldn't it have been great if Geralt had sought Jaskier out on his own accord, saved him from Rience and comforted him after? Well, good thing that's exactly what's happening here.

    Summary

    “While I expect to hear every detail about that golden dragon you met, and the band of dwarves you were travelling with, what I guess really stuck with me was the question of why you’ve never mentioned Dandy before? I thought we’d covered all the significant lovers in your life. Something about him make him the exception to the rule we have love? You know, the one about keeping no secrets about our pasts from one another?” The name Geralt had called the bard for nearly all of the two decades they’d travelled together rolled easily off Jaskier’s tongue, but Geralt heard the hurt in his tone.

    “I never mentioned him again because our paths never crossed again. Simple as that.”

    Summary

    Is this okay? Is this really, truly okay? He’s not sure. His heavy hand seems to be smearing ink across the page, and.. he might be crying. Maybe not. He’s not sure. It’s been so long since he’s expressed himself so genuinely- it’s.. overwhelming. It’s needed but it’s overwhelming, to a point where Geralt considered throwing the yellowed parchment into the crackling fire.

    ———

    Day 16 of flufftober! Geralt sends Jaskier a letter after his attempts to locate him fail. In it is not only an apology but a love confession- things go better than he expected, honestly.
