    Summary

    “This drink, the mage made it. It is going to make you a good boy,” she brushed back his hair, too long nails trailing along his cheek. “But you cannot tell anyone. You cannot tell a soul about this drink or this spell. You don’t talk about it. You keep it secret.”

     

    Julian opened his mouth to ask more and was hit by a pain he had never experienced. The boy cried out in pain and doubled over, arm wrapping around his screaming middle. His mother shushed him and pet at him until he was able to catch his breath.

     

    “See what happens to naughty little boys who don’t listen?” Her voice was sharp. “I told you not to say anything.”

    --

    Jaskier was cursed with obedience as a child and has mostly learned to get by without others knowing. Geralt is not most people.

    Summary

    Jaskier has been cursed. He's not sure why, and he's not sure who by. It was a bit of a laugh in the beginning, but he knows his only way out of it is a witch who'd possibly rather gut him than help him. However, the tales coming out after the battle of Sodden Hill have him thinking she might have learnt a little sympathy for the common man since last he saw her. And besides, she might not even recognise him anymore.

    Summary

    Geralt has been travelling with the sunshine that is Jaskier for many years now. He adores how bright and wonderful Jaskier sees the world; he loves him for it. What Geralt doesn't know though, is that Jaskier has been cursed by an evil (?) mage many many years before they first met in that small tavern in Posada.

    Summary

    “Such a nice, beautiful sound,” the fae crooned. “If only he were this way always.”

    Julian’s mother stood up. She claimed she was prepared to stop the fae, to protect her baby, but in Julian’s darkest moments he doubted this part of the story. His mother loved him, of that he had no doubt, but she had been young and weary, and even years later, she couldn’t quite get the twinge of exhaustion out of her eyes when she recalled Julian’s infancy. Even if she had been keen on protecting him, the fae was too close, too fast, too set on his plan.

    “A gift, for the new mother,” the fae continued. He leaned a hand in to stroke Julian’s cheek. “I give you the gift of obedience.”

    As a baby, Jaskier was visited by a fae, who gifted Jaskier's mother with Jaskier's obedience. As Jaskier grew older, the "gift" became more of a curse.

    Summary

And after what the witcher told him, it is not something he is looking forward to.

    Jaskier is cursed to be mute after an encounter with Destiny. He comes across many problems before his witcher finds him again, and he still has a lot of things to talk about with Geralt before finding his voice again.

    Summary

    “Cats don't like—you can't be serious.” Geralt said nothing and Jaskier gasped. “Of all the weird fucking things they did to you, that takes the cake.”

    This got a small chuckle. “Oh yes? The heightened senses that bring headaches if I'm in a town too long, the poison tolerance that still hurts like I'm dying, but no, cats hissing at me is clearly the worst...”

    Summary

    “You must confess to your witcher,” the elf says. “Until you do, you will not speak nor sing nor whisper sweet nothings into the ears of those you bed to distract you.”

    “You think he will leave you,” he says. “You are probably right, if what they say about witchers is true. I can’t imagine he’ll take kindly to knowing what you feel for him.”

    “So, bard. Witcher bard. This is the poison barb in your flesh: you can stay with him in silence and give up the one thing that makes you useful to him, or you can confess and give up something you will never have anyway.”

    Jaskier upsets the wrong one-night stand and loses his voice. The only way to get it back is to tell Geralt how he feels.

    Summary

    Jaskier was not having a good day. Ever since that incident with a witch a few days ago, he’s felt heat crawling underneath his skin. Whenever Geralt, his lover, bent down and Jaskier looked at his ass he felt it flare up wildly. That witch cursed him, and he didn’t want to tell Geralt. He wasn't planning to tell Geralt until one night he found out what his curse was.

    Summary

    "Are you sure you're fine?" Geralt asked after putting Roach in the tavern's tiny stable.

    "I feel more awesome than an awesome possum," Jaskier beamed, clearly not feeling his head wound anymore.

    Geralt furrowed his eyebrows at the strange statement. "Right… See if you can get us a room for the night?"

    "Anything you want, you got it!"

    __

    Just a silly story about Jaskier getting cursed to only be able to speak in song lyrics. And not his own lyrics. No no! Lyrics from our world.

    Summary

    Just under a year since Geralt and Jaskier parted ways on the mountain, Jaskier finds himself in some rather unfortunate circumstances. Lost in a forest, he tries to steal from a seemingly innocent cottage, but it is in fact, the home of a mage, who is none too happy about her things being stolen by a bard. Meanwhile, Geralt thinks he might finally be on the right track to finding Jaskier again, only for the trail to dry up abruptly, where he finds nothing but a surprisingly affectionate cat.

    (Yeah guys, Jaskier gets turned into a cat. They have to go thru some stuff before it works out again)

    Summary

    Jaskier was starting to slowly understand the real horror of the curse. It wasn't the curse at all. It was the cruelty of others.

    Of humans.

    Jaskier's eyes flickered over the man's shoulder. His chest expanded with a soft laugh. He shook him violently. "What are ya laughing at?"

    "You might not be scared of me," he said lightly, "but I think you'll be scared of him."

    /

    Jaskier should really be used to being cursed by now. At least he would always have Geralt to protect him.

    Summary

    A hundred some years ago, the Witcher Geralt fled into the Forest of Wolves with Renfri, the last known Songbird. Neither of them walked out alive. Renfri, cut down in her prime, her extraordinary powers lost forever; and Geralt, trapped in eternal slumber, his wish never granted.

    Songbirds are exceedingly rare creatures, born to humans, living normal human lives with one notable difference: using nothing more than their voice, they are capable of breaking any curse, and granting power beyond imagination. Many humans seek them out for power, or profit; Witchers seek them for permission to quit the Path and become whole once more; while monsters hunt them down mercilessly.

    Jaskier, determined to compose the best tragic love story in a century, sets out to see the Witcher in the Woods with his own eyes. Instead, he breaks a life-long curse, accidentally revives the dead, and falls in love with a man he can never have.

     

    --or the one where Witchers and half-demons are one in the same, their parentage determining which School they attend, and Jaskier has an actual silver tongue, he just doesn't know it yet.
