    Summary

    Lambert finds Jaskier dying of sickness, alone in the wild, and brings him back to Kaer Morhen for the winter.

     

    "He's the one behind that damn song," Eskel explains. They all know which one; Lambert had laughed for days when Geralt returned one winter and bitched about a bard who wouldn't take a hint. The following year, the song seemed to travel with them, and in some places, people would suddenly shout, "Hey witcher!" And toss coins at him. Lambert stopped laughing after that. Things had been... difficult, after Geralt's actions at Blaviken. "Butcher," they called him, and "Murderer." Witcher became synonymous with killer. After Jaskier, he'd been hailed as a hero in places. "Friend of humanity!"

     

    That damn song.

     

    "I couldn't leave him to die," Lambert defends himself, although neither of them have accused him of anything. Vesemir glowers a moment, and then nods his assent.

     

    "Bring him inside; we'll see what we can do."

    Summary

    Lambert doesn’t know what to think of the scrawny princess with the pretentious name Cirilla. He doesn’t know what to think of what he sees the blonde, almost white hair and melting blue eyes with pale skin covered in dirt and blood. He doesn’t know what to think. At all. It’s a fucking kid - he shouldn’t need to have an opinion on one.

    Summary

    Geralt sat, immovable as stone, atop the mountain till the cold chill of dusk began to swirl and he knew Yennefer and Jaskier both to be gone. He’ll head down the mountain then east, he tells himself.
    A week later and a tavern keeper’s gossip about the Nilfgaard forces marching North fills him with a sense of dread that steals his thoughts during the day and dreams in the night.

    Two weeks later he turns south towards Cintra.

    Summary

    Destiny isn’t sentient. It's a force of nature wrapping itself around every living thing, pulling them like a current through their lives. It follows then, that with enough belief destiny can shift - ever so slightly to the left.

    It goes like this.

    Jaskier goes to Cintra after Geralt breaks his heart.

    Summary

    For the last 10 years, Jaskier has been following Geralt around the world on and off, and the introverted Witcher still doesn't know his name. That doesn't mean they haven't had a lot of fun in the sharing a bedroll kind of way, but it's not supposed to mean anything.

    It does.

    Summary

    Geralt really should have learned from the last time he claimed the Law of Surprise and Destiny gave him a special child.

    OR: Destiny rears its ugly head, history repeats itself, and Geralt (maybe) learns his lesson.
