    Summary

    It was in the silence his ghosts were always their loudest, their most dangerous; in stillness their most unavoidable.

    So Jaskier the bard sang his songs and filled the spaces. He hummed shanties long into the night, his fingers chasing up and down the strings of his lute like he had once chased his brothers and sisters up and down the rigging of their ships.

    Now he'd finally found a mentor who could teach him the final lessons he needed to become a full Witcher. So what if he seems strangely overprotective? They are the last of their schools, and Geralt allows Jaskier to walk his Path alongside him. Wolf and Crane, alone together.

    Too bad Geralt didn't realize what this strange human-seeming bard was actually asking of him.

    Summary

    "These woods are like a fairy tale come to life, don't you think?"

    "Hmm."

    "There’s no festival to be at, no contract, just us and the woods. I want to savor it.”

    "Would have been faster to take the northern trading road. You should have listened to the soothsayer back in Ballantine."

    Jaskier snorted. "You sound as bad as the fishwives. But I know you too well to think you go in for that poppycock. Beware the Ursine Woods, for if you enter, you shall not emerge unaltered. Altered, how I might ask? Is there a seamstress about? Pfft. No. She just wanted to sell me a charm to 'keep me safe’.' It's commerce, Geralt, nothing more to it."

    …..

    A detour to an ancient cemetery takes an unexpected turn with long-reaching consequences.

    Summary

    Witchers feel emotions, Renfri wasn't a monster, Roach is notably chill, Geralt prefers nonhuman company and lies a lot, Jaskier is generally good at people but is happy to ignore what they say, Yennefer's life is abuse piled atop abuse with a sprinkle of ethnic cleansing and a complete lack of choice, Istredd's life likely wasn't much better, Tissaia does not know what she's doing, Triss is lying about being assigned to cure the princess but is afraid to admit a personal investment, Jaskier is surprisingly tolerant of Geralt getting him on Calanthe's shitlist, Kalis was in a bad situation and didn't rise above it, it really shouldn't surprise people Yennefer gets weird about having a kid, rogue mages are afraid of the Brotherhood but it seems to be a paper tiger, Jaskier took being dumped by the countess really hard but despite being drunk and having his own problems he's concerned for Geralt and wants to help him, Geralt was fine with having sex with Yennefer but concerned she had some other plot.

    Ch23: There is so much going on with Yennefer in Bottled Appetites, and it has virtually no overlap with what fandom thinks was going on.

    Summary

    A bard singing in the woods is nothing much worth paying attention to, he’s done it for years without interruption. So, he makes up a song on the fly—a very thinly veiled warning about conniving nobles and traps set for hissing creatures. It’s the best he can do.

    Apparently, his best is good enough this time, because when he turns around to head back to his room for the night, he nearly smashes his nose into a witcher’s chest.

     

    (After the dragon hunt fiasco, Jaskier accidentally finds himself adopted and thoroughly loved by a clowder of Cats.)

    Summary

    There were missing children, and distraught parents, and the cloying scent of harsh magics in the forest surrounding the tiny hamlet. Jaskier had been agitated, almost angry when he’d taken the contract, and it had puzzled him. He would have thought the bard’s mind brimming with possibilities for how this story would end. And so he’d been a bit worried and apprehensive, concerned that something was wrong.

    Concerned that Jaskier knew something he didn’t.

    Summary

    Seasons change and so does Jaskier, unnaccustomed to standing still.

    Over twenty years of wandering, a witcher-turned-bard redefines his definition of home, helped along by several nightmares, one sewer monster, and the endlessly-restorative powers of a hot bath.

    Summary

    Jaskier had quickly abandoned the Path once he was out in the world. He’d chosen a name, and pursued what he truly wanted in life - and it was music, not fighting monsters, because of course it was - and he’d only deigned to act as a witcher until he gathered the not insignificant amount of coin needed to buy himself not only a glamour but the discretion of its creator, which had cost almost as much as the damn thing itself.

    If anyone who’d ever known him could see him now, he doubted they’d be too surprised.

     

    Jaskier is a witcher by nature, a bard by choice, and a general nuisance by sheer force of personality.

    Summary

    When miscommunication goes too far; A bard becomes a spy and a witcher challenges the myth that he can’t feel.

    "The stretch of weeks, months, and even once a year, always put a strain on Jaskier as he waited for the reunion with his witcher. He cannot remember when the switch from friends to occasional bedmates had happened."

    Summary

    It had sounded like a standard contract: Waah, evil mage - please help us. He had followed up with the alderman, a thin sallow man with a face that just screamed ‘I will try to cheat you’ but autumn was fading fast and Lambert needed every contract he could get between here and Kaer Morhen before winter hit. Missing animals, strange lights and scary noises, blah blah.

    No actual danger to humans though, not even any concrete evidence to connect the so-called mage to the missing animals around the town. Lambert had been around long enough to know things died and ran off all the time, didn’t always point to some big mystery.

    He had rolled his eyes as he left; they didn’t need a Witcher really, just someone with enough balls to go evict a mage. But hey - they were willing to pay, and maybe this could be one of those short and sweet jobs that always seemed to land in his brothers’ laps.

    He should know better by now than to have those kinds of thoughts. Only ever led him into trouble.

    Summary

    Jaskier’s world is bigger than his relationship with Geralt. After the mountain he’s going to be just fine.
