    Summary

    It goes like this:

    A boy is abandoned, swept up, and transformed. A boy grows up learning not to feel. A man spends lifetimes alone, battered by the world and its hatred, until he is hardened beyond repair. Not even the joyous songs of a beautiful lark can repair the decades of cruelty. He learns kindness, perhaps, and may even know love, but he will never be the same as that boy left at the side of the road so long ago.

    And yet. What if it went like this?

    A boy is abandoned, swept up, and transformed. A young man sets out into the world, still clinging onto the hope of becoming a hero. But he is not alone anymore. There is now someone there, someone to stitch him together when he's injured, someone to dry his tears when they threaten to fall and to tell him it will be okay.

    What would the boy become?
    ---
    An AU where Geralt meets Jaskier much, much earlier than before. He's only been on the Path for a few months, and Jaskier is a professor who never quite made it as a traveling bard. Good thing he's a teacher, because someone did not raise this poor Witcher correctly. It's time to learn emotional maturity!

    Summary

    When Zolton asks Geralt to be a bodyguard to the famous artist Jaskier, he takes the job, needing both money and a place to stay since Yennifer kicked him out. He expects the job to be like any other bodyguard job, follow the artist around, ignore their flare for the dramatics, go home and repeat. Bodygaurding was a boring job, but it was steady until he got back on his feet.

    Of course nothing goes as expected.

    Summary

    “You… love me as a friend.”

    It’s perfectly flat. Not a hint of what he’s thinking.

    Squeezing his eyes shut, Jaskier bows his head, sucks in a breath, and prays to any god that’s listening.

    “Yes,” he says. “And I’m sorry I… complicated things. It won’t happen again.”

    Jaskier blurts out something he shouldn't have, and then proceeds to make things so much worse.

    Summary

    After the disastrous dragon hunt, Jaskier gives Geralt his one wish though it will cause him eternal pain to do so. Higher vampires mate for life, only ever giving their heart to their one. Unfortunately for Jaskier, he has already given his heart to the witcher without realizing it. When a vampire's one rejects their heart, they will forever live with chronic, inescapable pain for which there is no cure.

    So Jaskier sheds the skin of the joyful human bard and returns to Oxenfurt to step back into the roles he left behind--Professor Pankratz, Julian the Viscount de Lettenhove, and Dandelion the spy. With Nilfgaard gearing up to go to war, Jaskier is faced with decisions he never wanted to make, a guild to protect, a war to win, a princess to find, a sorceress to save (however begrudgingly), and a pain in his chest that only gets worse the longer the witcher is near.

    Summary

    No, he just feels.. numb. Uncomfortably, stifling, terribly numb- like the moments after taking a particularly strong potion, the awful taste mixing with the moment of nothing before his senses would be heightened.
    But the drop never came, his senses never returned- he was floating. He was floating as his eyes stayed glued to where he last saw Jaskier, he was floating as he could just barely smell gooseberries and dwarven ale and he’s alone. Alone, alone, alone, terrifyingly alone and it’s truly terrifying because the pit in his stomach doesn’t ebb. It doesn’t fade into the background, it doesn’t leave him over time- it sticks. It sticks until sun down, and it’s only when the sun was below the tree-covered horizon did he realize what he did.

    What he’s done.

    ———

    After the mountain Geralt has time to fix things. He doesn’t. That doesn’t make it anymore enjoyable for him, though.

    Summary

    It wasn’t fair. That’s.. Jaskier was right, when he whispered it in a fit of agony. It isn’t fair. Geralt’s heart and head dragging him after the bard, managing to have Jaskier pop up in his soul no matter how hard he tries to pluck him. Like a weed, like a dandelion- Geralt was the cobbled street and Jaskier the obnoxiously stubborn plant tearing through his hard surface. It wasn’t fair. It wasn’t fair that Jaskier fell in love and it wasn’t fair that Geralt didn’t take long at all to follow- and it wasn’t fair that Geralt tied himself to a princess and a witch, it wasn’t fair that Geralt couldn’t escape the path.
    It wasn’t fair that Jaskier had to face him so often. If life could give me one blessing.. life didn’t give him a blessing, it gave him a curse. A curse of heartache, of a rejection he caused in his own outburst- because as Geralt meets those coastal eyes, blue waves and salty tears he knows he’s fucked up.

    ———

    Geralt, despite knowing how Jaskier feels about him, still sends him away during the dragon hunt. Despite that, Geralt keeps on finding himself face to face with Jaskier- so.. he eventually stops fighting it.

    Summary

    “Hm?” Jaskier says, only half-listening, from where he’s apparently gotten distracted playing with the hair peeking through the vee of Geralt’s shirt.

    Geralt grits his teeth, because if he starts thinking about that, then this conversation will be over, and – for once – Geralt’s the one who wants to keep having it.

    Jaskier and Geralt keep trying to figure out their relationship. It keeps getting worse before it gets better.

    Summary

    “I don’t mean to interrupt, but I have something to say, too.” Jaskier turned his whole body, now sitting on his knees and placing his hands on his thighs. He bit his lip anxiously, and he felt almost every memory of Geralt race through his mind. Every possible word he could say lingered in the back of his mind, but he chose a select few that really got his point across. “When I met you in that tavern, I knew that I was going to follow you to the end. When I followed you into every hunt, I knew what I was getting myself into, and I was willing to risk everything to be by your side. Even when we had those little arguments and I stormed off, I always had to resist the urge to run back to you. And I know, I know, your heart belongs to Yennefer and whatnot, and I’m probably messing everything up just to tell you this, but whenever I’m around you, my stomach feels like butterflies, and my heart flutters whenever you say my name—” Jaskiers mouth hung open for a moment. He was scared to even look up at Geralt. He expected Geralt to wear a look of disgust, and hatred. But his expression was gentle… and he was smiling.

    Summary

    When trying to escape a far-too-early winter storm, Geralt and Jaskier take shelter in an abandoned cottage in the woods. But of course, abandoned cottages hide secret, magic things, and as seems to be just like them, Geralt is cursed with a fire that burns him up from the inside. Unless he is touched. More and more and MORE.

    Good thing the object of all his desires is right there, huh?

    Summary

    After that second drink, Geralt is admittedly a little tipsy, which is probably the only reason Jaskier gets her onto the dance floor.

    Geralt and Jaskier have a very fun, if a little short, night out.

    Summary

    "Did you hear?" a voice at a nearby table asked. "The witcher was spotted outside of town."
    Jaskier stiffened slightly as another voice answered. "Really? Coming to get that swamp beast, eh?"
    "Must be," said the first voice. "I guess we'll see if he can manage it."
    Jaskier stood stiffly, grabbing his bag and moving quickly for the door, ignoring the calls of the tavern owner. Have to get out, have to-
    His thoughts were cut off with a grunt as he ran straight into something extremely solid. He fell to the floor with a crash and bursts of laughter from the patrons. Jaskier started to get up when the shadow of what he'd run into fell over him. He looked up slowly, dreading what he would see.
    The black boots and pants, the chest the size of a barrel, that white hair and those golden eyes…
    "Geralt…"

    Summary

    Yennefer raised her wine glass, gesturing around the tavern. “This is pathetic. Just tell him you love him and get on with it.”

    Geralt frowned, staring down his ale. “But what if he leaves? He could hate me for it.”

    “That man has followed you around for decades, through better and worse. He’s not just going to up and leave you now. He’s sung his love for you literally across the Continent.” Geralt hummed, not looking up from his ale.

    “Honestly Geralt, what’s the worst that could happen? He dies?”

    Jaskier was cursed to immediately die when someone romantically tells him: “I love you.” So, of course, he follows around the most emotionally repressed witcher he can find in a vain attempt to gain himself immortality.

    Summary

    Now, though. Now, thanks to Yennefer and Triss’ experimentation, and some alchemy of Geralt’s own, Jaskier is shaped much, much differently.

     

    Jaskier's body is changed to match her mind, and Geralt is stupidly in love with her.

    Summary

    Geralt is still potion-pale when he stumbles into their camp, eyes that eerie black, but that isn’t really what Jaskier notices.

    No, much more noticeable than the potion toxicity – a look Jaskier is fairly used to, by this point, really – is the stench of rut. 

    Geralt goes into rut unexpectedly. Jaskier obviously isn't about to let him suffer that alone, consequences or no consequences.
