    Summary

    “Trust me, I wouldn’t do anything I don’t want to. Certainly not for some annoying kid who won’t quit following me around.”

    Jaskier tries not to let it sting. Geralt’s not wrong. It’s just that now Jaskier is some annoying kid with an embarrassing crush.

    And isn’t that how it always goes for him?

    Summary

    ‘People don’t want to take witchers as lovers,’ Geralt says. ‘And I don’t want them to … treat me as something I’m not. So it’s easier not to.’

    ‘Well, if you mean that you’re frustrated that they treat you as though you were human,’ Jaskier says, folding his arms, ‘perhaps you simply need to remember that you’re—’

    ‘I don’t want them to treat me as though I were a woman,’ Geralt snaps.

    ‘Oh,’ Jaskier says. ‘I could help if you like. I’m not going to pretend you’re a woman. And we’re friends, aren’t we?’

    In which Jaskier and Geralt make a convenient arrangement to make the Path more pleasant, where absolutely no feelings are involved.

    Summary

    Jaskier has become adept at looking at Geralt only as much as Geralt wants to be looked at - but it's harder, recently, when his eyes catch on Geralt's body without his notice. Geralt, for his part, has accepted the fact that Jaskier just doesn't want him, and that stings a little but he's fine with it. It's just a little confusing now that Jaskier smells like he does.

    Or, grey-ace Jaskier tries to figure out what being attracted to someone entails while Geralt loses his mind over what Jaskier smelling like attraction means. Rating is for the second chapter only.

    Summary

    Geralt tries to read the man’s face before he looks around for a hidden camera. His youngest brother is supposed to be away this weekend with his boyfriend, but this entire situation reeks of Lambert’s exact sense of humor. Geralt is suddenly quite sure there’s a whipped cream pie to the face waiting at the end of wherever his neighbor is leading him with this conversation.

    “You can’t just hit it with a shoe?”

    That makes the man inhale sharply and press a hand to his chest, like a church matron clutching her pearls. “The spider is an animal, but I most certainly am not! I am not trying to banish the little beast from the mortal coil. I am simply trying to evict him from the previously-spiderless sanctuary of my home.”

    (Jaskier tries to recruit his neighbor Geralt to handle a spider problem) (Ciri ends up taking the lead on the assignment) (this still ends up with more Geraskier than might be expected)
