    Summary

    Cahir crouched down next to him and spoke into his ear, "A bard? A viscount? Geralt of Riva's friend? Possible knower of Cirilla's location? you're many interesting things Jaskier" he purred, "don't sell yourself short".
    "well" Jaskier coughed, pulling his head up to meet his eyes "yes to the first, maybe to the second, absolutely not to the third, and who is the fourth?"
    A second passed between them, flat blue eyes helds held his and a humourless smile played on his lips. "

    Jaskier is a year out from his unforgiveable abandonment on the mountain top. His faultless admirers have long since grown tired of his break-up songs and non-witcher related ballads. Whilst hurtful memories plague him, his concerns are abruptly changed when Nilfgaardian soldiers abduct him and deliver him into the hands of Cahir.

    Whilst navigating a desperate Cahir and a perilous rescue, Jaskiers loyalties and friendships are not the only things put under fire.

    Summary

    The Count and Countess of Lettenhove have everything their hearts desire... Everything, except a child. When they ask a witch for help, she bakes the perfect child out of almonds, sugar and gems.
    Then, they decide a perfect child is obedient and quiet, and Julian is neither, so the witch gives them the power to control him.

    When Jaskier gives away his heart to the wrong person years later, can he get it back? Or will he have to learn to live without it?

    Summary

    Since the mountain, Jaskier has been grieving Geralt and funnelling all his emotions into sleeping around, unable to believe the love he has within his grasp with Sam the Baker. It takes being plucked out of his life and meeting another witcher, Eskel, to realise that maybe his views on love have been misguided.

    A love quadrangle between Jaskier, Geralt, Sam, and Eskel, with a Saskier and Jaskel end game.

    For the Jaskier Mini Bang. Art by FlightsFancy.

    Summary

    Jaskier wasn't exactly sure what he had expected Kaer Morhen to be like but the keep was everything and nothing like it. The place was a dichotomy. Magnificent and sad in equal measures in its derelict state. Silent but full of noise. Cold yet filled with warmth.

    But most importantly, it was Geralt's home. Seeing him so relaxed, the sharpest edges rounded down with the knowledge of being safe and surrounded by his family was a beautiful sight to behold.

    Jaskier wished he too would relearn what safety felt like.

    Summary

    Humans don’t believe in monsters, and those that do are written off as foolish or insane. It’s better that way for Geralt and the handful of witchers that are left. If a thousand years walking the Continent has taught him anything it's that humans are nothing but excitable, scared animals. If they knew what was waiting in the woods, what was lurking in the dark, they would never stray from their artificially well-lit spaces again.

    OR Geralt is on the hunt for a monster that has claimed the lives of nearly fifty Redanians in the past two years, but he's always one step behind. That is, until he finds a young man that was attacked by the creature - the first human to come face to face with the beast and live. If he can save the kid and find out what he knows then maybe he can put an end to this thing before any one else dies. It's never quite that simple though, is it?

    Summary

    Thus, a deal was struck, a treaty agreed upon. Rivia would not take military action against any allied kingdom and in turn, the kingdoms would provide the king of Rivia with a consort. So far, that last bit was the part of the treaty that had gone to shit. As far as Jaskier had understood, up to now the White Wolf had turned down all the proffered brides. If a consort was not approved, the treaty would be null and void.

     

    Where Jaskier is the last chance of fulfilling the requirements of a treaty between the warlord of Rivia, and the allied kingdoms. Will it prove to be his rescue or his doom?

    Summary

    This is a story of what-ifs. What if the bard fell in love with the sorceress he always sung about? And what if the witch learned to love what was good for her rather than what she thought she deserved? What if all it took for this to begin was to two people headed down a mountain at the same time?

    Summary

    Jaskier had sworn to himself that after he and Geralt parted, he’d go to the coast, find a beautiful new muse and forget about witchers altogether. So naturally, when he arrives at Novigrad looking for a ship to take him to Cidaris, the world sees fit to drop another one into his lap.

    He wishes he had never run into Eskel in that bookshop in Hierarch Square, lonely and wanting despite the distance he had put between himself and that mountain in Caingorn. But he had, and the moment Eskel put a slim volume of elven poetry in his hands, a small smile on his face and murmured if you enjoyed Aedri aep Geimdan’s work, you’ll enjoy this — Jaskier knew he was lost. It’s not right, he knows it’s not right, but he’s a weak, weak man, and seeing that warmth in eyes that are so like Geralt’s makes Jaskier’s heart ache unbearably.

    Eskel isn’t who he truly wants, but Jaskier can make do.

    Summary

    From the day she first met the witcher and his bard, Yennefer suspected the latter to be in posession of chaos. She eventually uncovers the truth, that he has a natural talent for forbidden fire magic and has hidden it away for decades, fearing for the safety of both himself and others.

    Backed into a corner with Nilfgaard rapidly approaching Sodden and only a handful of court mages to hold them back, she asks Jaskier to join her in the fight for the North. Neither are prepared for the price it will exact, nor for the demon sinking her talons into them both for her own gain.

    Summary

    Even emotional support bards have their limits. Maybe Geralt didn't mean what he said after the dragon hunt, but if he *did*...regardless, Jaskier needs a minute. A week, at most. He's just...enforcing a mutual cooldown period before he goes back to Geralt and tries to fix this mess.

    Given the dwarven idea of an acceptable shortcut, he should have known better than to take Yarpen's recommendation for the long way out of the mountains. It quickly becomes much, much longer than anticipated. How much trouble can one Witcherless bard get into, anyway?

    (Jaskier strikes off alone after the dragon hunt debacle. Monsters, mayhem, and meet-cutes immediately ensue.)
