    Summary

    “Geralt had just about been ready to tell the mage to fuck off when he smelt the distinct sour acid of fear heavily on his right. When he glanced over, he saw how tense Jaskier sat, his posture so perfect it had to hurt and his face as pleasantly neutral as he could make it. Fear was joined by anger, and as Jaskier watched Stregobor, resignation filled his eyes.

    Jaskier knew Stregobor.“

    Summary

    First, Jaskier lost his witcher on that mountain top. Then Nilfgaard started the war and he lost everything else. Now he travels the Continent as a nameless, wandering, welcome bard. There is no greater power, Jaskier knows, than that of bringing light into darkness through the art of music and poetry.

    It comes as a great surprise to him, then, that his presence is asked at Kaer Morhen by none other than Yennefer of Vengerberg. Although apprehensive, all hesitation melts away when he hears why they need him. Princess Cirilla seems in dire need of a bard to bring some light back into her eyes.

    For that, Jaskier knows, he would even bear to live with four grumpy witchers and the Continent's most powerful mage. Oh well... He's sure this won't end well for him.

    Or: Jaskier is coming to Kaer Morhen as Ciri's emotional support bard. They make an unexpected family along the path to healing.

    Summary

    A long time ago, a certain bard had eyes for the white haired witcher. Then Geralt had gone and fucked it up. Jaskier told Eskel about what happened on the mountain. The things Geralt had shouted at him, making him feel small and at fault for Geralt's fuck ups. Jaskier had also told him about the shit apology Geralt gave him. Eskel tried to comfort Jaskier as much as he could, and it made the witcher's heart ache when Jaskier went back to his brother.

    Unfortunately time had taken its toll, and Jaskier was not an immortal. His passing had hurt every one of the witchers. Though some would not admit it, Lambert was one of them.
    Eskel was the second.

    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

    "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

    “Right, right…right!” The bard babbles, hands fluttering fretfully. “This is fine. I can do this. I can do this! Not a problem at all, not an issue, completely fine to-”

    “Are you going to actually get to it before I bleed to death, or after?” Geralt asks, with a snap in his voice he can’t really control. For all that wounds are nearly old friends at this point, it’s still unpleasant to have unstitched rips in his flesh, and he’d like to get past the panicking portion of the evening.

    (Jaskier did NOT learn how to stitch someone up at university) (he gets there eventually)

    Summary

    "It's you. It's me. It's us." - The Haunting of Bly Manor.

    -

    “How?” Geralt gripped Jaskier’s wrist, stopping him from walking away. He pulled the bard back into the sea and stared at him directly. Jaskier offered an apathetic struggle against the Witcher’s grip. Geralt shook him lightly. “Tell me, Jaskier!”
    Jaskier quit his efforts. He forced a shaky breath.
    “I bought us time.”

    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

    “Fire through the heart is the only thing that puts a leshy down. Six hours in a fight, and that didn’t occur to you?”

    Geralt should have known, then.

    -----------------

    Geralt grieves, and regrets, and desperately tries to do right by Ciri. Elsewhere, Jaskier rescues a handsome witcher from a tree, gets into trouble, takes up the name of the Sandpiper, and finds solace in a kindred soul - not necessarily in that order. Eskel just wants to make it home to his brothers, his father, and Geralt, and keep their bard alive while doing it.

    Summary

    Summary

    There was a word echoing in his mind with each step of the guards in the hallway outside his cell. It radiated through his bones and into the tattered soul beneath. Over and over again with each beat of his heart until he could scarcely breathe through it.

    Betrayal.

    Geralt had betrayed him.

    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.
