    Summary

    After a traumatic motorcycle accident, Geralt is left with brain damage. Aphasia, the doctors call it, rendering him unable to read, write, and speak, (well, almost).

    Escaping to the city to get away from pitying looks, he meets his across-the-hall neighbor, Jaskier, an eccentric up-and-coming musician who's determined to befriend him despite the barrier in communication.

    Armed with hums, grunts, and 'fucks', will Geralt let the idiot in room 604 break down his walls, or will his past trauma be too much for him to overcome? Read and find out.

    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

    His freedom was drawing to a close when Jaskier finally met the only man who could ever satisfy him. He had one week left and had chosen to spend it in paradise. Little did he expect to find true love, let alone the one man who would go to the ends of the Continent to protect him and show him what he'd been missing all his life...home, family and his wings to fly.

    Summary

    Geralt had made a tradition within the first six months he's had Ciri under his care. It was all going smoothly until one day the Bakery they were visiting had a sign posted stating: "Sorry we are closed. My heart is broken, I'm too sad to bake pastries." Young Ciri broke down at the sudden loss of routine.

    "It was only then he took notice of a person standing with wide eyes at them, clearly the brokenhearted owner of the bakery. He mentally winced, feeling awful for potentially making the man feel uncomfortable. Then suddenly felt insecure thinking the man was most likely judging his parenting skills. 'I’m so sorry. It’s just–' Geralt awkwardly shifted, cringing at Ciri curling his hair with her fingers as she took shuddering small breaths. He sighed before continuing, '–we have a tradition of visiting bakeries on Fridays, and she, um, doesn’t do well with sudden change.'

    The man opened his mouth only to close it, a shade of red spreading over his cheeks in embarrassment before he finally stood straighter and looked him in the eye. 'I can bake up something for her real quick?' He offered softly..."

    Summary

    Kinktober Day 29: Hair Trigger + Praise + Trust
    (is unconditional love a kink? because if so, let's add that in there)

    Geralt doesn't do relationships, or sex, or friends, or people. So when he lets Jaskier tag along for drinks after work, lets himself flirt back, even invites Jaskier back to his apartment, he has no idea what the fuck he was thinking. The only thing more terrifying than Jaskier finding out his secret is letting Jaskier walk out the door.

    Summary

    Dreams, for a number of people, were nothing but the imaginings of the mind. For some though, Jaskier included, they included clues pointing towards one's soulmate.

    --

    Every few months, the dream returned, sometimes with seasonal differences, but always the empty, beckoning city. Geralt realized what it was the second year: A soulmate's call. Fuck.

    Summary

    “I told you to stay.” Is what Geralt eventually says and Jaskier’s throat feels tight.

    “I tried to. I.. didn’t have enough coin. Innkeeper gave me an extra night purely out of pity and then I had to leave.” Jaskier feels uncomfortably warm under Geralt’s stare. Geralt considered it for a few moments before nodding.

    “I was wondering what happened. I came back. I wasn’t.. trying to leave you again.” Geralt’s voice was a familiar drone, an attempt to sound apathetic- but Jaskier knew better. He was embarrassed. Guilty.

    “I took a job to clear my mind. And.. to get you something.” What? To get Jaskier something? “I could give it to you out here.” Geralt continued, fidgeting subtly with Roach’s reins.
    “Or you could join me in my room.”

    ———

    Day 1 of my angstober! Jaskier and Geralt both experience miscommunication in their own ways.

    Summary

    Set immediately after the events of "You're Being Kind of a Dick", the story picks up with Geralt and Jaskier's morning after. The pair have to figure out how to navigate a brand new relationship, which is all the more difficult with Geralt's insecurities and poor grasp of how to handle his own feelings. Fortunately, Jaskier has the patience of a saint.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Geralt smiled as he took a sip of his coffee, feeling his cheeks grow warm. Despite his earlier protestations, he consumed his honey bun with a single-minded focus of a warrior on a hunt, leaving nary a crumb behind. As he licked the sticky glaze from his fingers, he found the metaphorical shoe to be on the other foot, noting that Jaskier was unabashedly staring at Geralt.
    “Something on my face now?” he quipped.
    “Not yet, but I have some ideas.”

    Summary

    “Hmm.” The Witcher hummed, unimpressed. “What now?”

    Lyre smirked, “Now… You take your shirt off!”

    “What?!”

    His girlfriend took a deep breath to stop herself from bursting into laughter now at his sheer incredulousness. “Take your shirt off, silly Witcher, and lie flat down on the bed! It’ll all make sense in a few minutes.”

    Or, Geralt is tired, but won't sleep. Lyre won't stand for it. She figures out how to make him fall asleep, but she must get the Witcher to cooperate all the same.

    Summary

    After the events of the mountain, Geralt feels a loss so deep, he fears he will never be able to recover from it. The damage he has done is enough to send even the most forgiving away. Jaskier is gone. And there is nothing he can do to change that.

    Geralt regrets it. He can only hope that Jaskier is safe during the wartime that Nilfguard brings. He can only hope he has somewhere warm to go, and food to eat. That he is safe and sheltered.

    He doesn't have to wonder for long. He invokes the Law of Surprise.

    Summary

    “You’re angry,” Slips from the Witcher’s lips and the words feel foreign on his tongue, because yes, Jaskier expressed anger just as any other did but this is different. This time there’s no furrow of his brows, no sneer of his lips, no cold shoulder, no obvious signs of emotion— the bard just looks content to smile at him, to touch him. It burns his nostrils when he inhales again, rushes into his head and curls around his mind like wisps of smoke. Angry. Angry. Angry, “at me?”

    Summary

    “Oh. No, nothing’s wrong.” Jaskier’s leg began to bounce and his fingers drummed a little rhythm onto his knee. “I just…”
    Geralt’s insides twisted and he leaned closer. He couldn’t miss a single word of what Jaskier was about to say next. Whatever it was that dulled Jaskier’s smile, if it was in Geralt’s power, he had to fix it.
    “I’m a tad bored.”
    Geralt blinked and pulled back.
    “Bored?” He asked incredulously.
    Jaskier shrugged sheepishly.
    “Back home there was always something to do."

    OR: Geralt finds a task for Jaskier and discovers the unfortunate effects of being married to a man who loves poetry while also not knowing a single thing about poems
