    Summary

    After Geralt’s death, Jaskier returns to the fae realm, unable to live in the human world without the witcher he loved. When he’s attacked and nearly killed eight centuries later, Jaskier flees back to the human world, where he finds himself face-to-face with Geralt. This Geralt is a redheaded, freckled human with no memory of his life as a witcher or of Jaskier. But as Jaskier gets to know his oldest friend all over again— and starts to fall in love with him all over again— a mysterious enemy threatens both their lives.

    Summary

    Geralt is killed before he can apologize to Jaskier for what he said on the mountain, and so his ghost lingers on, watching over his bard.

    Jaskier doesn't take the news of Geralt's death very well. He would be crying himself to sleep each night if he wasn't spending all his time worrying about a certain power-hungry sorceress.

    Yennefer wants a child, and with Geralt gone, it only seems fitting that she should care for his surprise child in his stead. Right?

    Even though she's a ghost, Renfri still has something haunting her.

    Summary

    “Yennefer, Yenna, Yen. Dearest of my heart, most terrifying sorceress I know,” says Jaskier with bright, shining eyes. “Did you hear there’s a Witcher in town?”

    “Maybe a mumble or two,” Yennefer says, giving Geralt a knowing glance. He glares back, hunching in on himself, wishing he could blend into the wall.

    Jaskier grabs Yennefer’s hands. “Yenna, I’m begging you to help me find him. I’ve always wanted to meet a Witcher. Please. I’ll do anything.”

    “As tempting as that sounds,” Yennefer replies wryly, retracting her hand and patting Jaskier’s arm. “I’m afraid I can’t.”

     Thank the fucking gods. Finally, some reason. Inwardly, Geralt sighs in relief. He tries not to feel bad about the way Jaskier’s shoulders drop with disappointment, his expression crestfallen.

    “But Geralt can help,” Yennefer - the absolute arsehole - continues merrily. “Isn’t that right, Geralt?”

    Fuck.

     

    AKA: the incredibly loose and not at all accurate adaptation of Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist that nobody asked for. Written for the Geraskier Big Bang.

    Summary

    The Winter Woods. Rumored to hide monsters of your deepest fears and that whoever enters never makes it out alive.

    So, naturally, Jaskier, being utterly smashed and utterly heartbroken over the Countess's betrayal finds it to be the perfect spot to drunkenly wail his broken heart. No one will hurt him again when he disappears into the woods.

    Forever.

    So how in the hell does he wake up in his bed the next morning alive?

    Or:

    Geralt's a hermit in the woods. Jaskier's a curious bastard who never knows when to leave something alone. This will go about as well as you think it could.

    Summary

    When Eskel is hired to kill an incubus who ruined a noble wedding, he finds that his target is far from a bloodthirsty beast, a too-pretty court bard. Eskel spares Jaskier and they go their separate ways, with Eskel expecting never to see the incubus again. But Jaskier has other ideas.

    Summary

    Jaskier is a genie that has been “freed” from his “bottle” which is bits and pieces of his lute. He isn’t truly free but enough to not actually care about being a genie. He's been traveling the world doing whatever. Upon meeting Geralt, he pretends to be a normal bard as he does with everyone but every now and then when Geralt wants something it just seems to be easier to get it. Sometimes when it’s a close call with a monster, he lands a lucky shot. He wouldn’t have been killed but he would have been injured, badly, and yet barely a scratch.
    Sometimes Jaskier and Geralt split paths and Geralt notices how his luck seems to better when his little strange bard is around.

    Summary

    Jaskier is going to get Geralt back. He will. Even if he has to poke a finger in the eye of death itself to do it. Metaphorically, of course. He doesn't know where to even start looking for death's eyes, assuming it is a literal being with literal eyes. Although if it is, and it does, and he did, he would poke Death in the eye literally to get Geralt back as well.

    Summary

    After completing a contract for the Countess de Stael, Geralt doesn't expect to walk away with much. A night in a warm bed, a full belly, a coin purse made just a little bit heavier.

    Instead, he finds himself in possession of a magically enslaved bard—an Indebted. Despite his long years, Geralt still manages to be surprised by the cruelty of men. The Path is no place for a man, and he doesn't want a slave. But Destiny has other plans, and Geralt finds himself struggling to navigate the ethical minefield of guardianship and possession while walking the Path with his new companion.

    Meanwhile, Jaskier tries to figure out where he stands with his strange new Benefactor.

    Summary

    Jaskier is a shadow and he will disappear one day, either Julian will die or he’ll be forcibly called back to his heel. He can’t give Geralt hope and have it being ripped from his fingers without a word. He knows that Geralt would try to find him, would stop at nothing. But he would search for the rest of his long life because shadows aren’t real and they leave no trace when the darkness comes in.

    Summary

    Witchers don’t have soulmates. That’s been true for as long as Geralt’s been alive, a necessary sacrifice for a life spent on the Path. There’s no place for the attachments that humans define themselves by.

    It may not be worth it to Geralt, but love has always been the single most motivating force in the world for Jaskier. Unrequited or not, he’s a bard, and there’s a story to be told. He’ll be the one to tell it.

    (Who’s the more tragic figure here? The loved or the unloving?)


    Jaskier and Geralt are soulmates, bound by the Red String of Fate. But just because it's written in the stars doesn't mean it's an easy path to tread, and it takes more than a nudge from fate to make a soul-bond work. Between the way Geralt feels about destiny, and the trials and tribulations of the path they have to trudge, it's going to be one hell of an adventure.

    Summary

    After Geralt dresses, he opens the window despite the fact that it’s cold outside and Jaskier is sprawled out naked on the bed.

    (It’s fucking Valentine’s Day.)

    “You should quit,” Geralt says, “it’s bad for you.”

    Jaskier sighs heavily, hating how much his best friend cares. “I’m aware,” he answers. Geralt stands there, black clothes and white hair contrasting with the grey-blue walls. Jaskier drinks him in and admits, “But I can’t stop.”

    Or

    Geralt and Jaskier love each other but pretend they don’t and everything hurts.

    Summary

    Jaskier drops the torch and the dagger, rushing forward to fall to his knees next to Geralt. The light splutters briefly but holds, and Jaskier curses himself even as he hesitantly reaches out to try and wake Geralt. The leather armour of his shoulder is cold under Jaskier’s palm, and weirdly tacky with something; arachas venom pings in the back of his mind like a warning, and he hastily wipes his palms off on his already ruined doublet, reaching forward to cradle Geralt's face instead.

    “Geralt?” he whispers; the horrifying truth of Geralt’s stillness catches in his throat, preventing him from being any louder than that. “Geralt?”

    Or

    It’s not that he hadn’t thought it possible... but Geralt was a witcher. No one had ever mentioned that witchers could die.

    Five Times Jaskier Thought Geralt Was Dead, Plus One Time It Was Reversed
