    Summary

    Geralt and Jaskier encounter an unfamiliar creature who decides to help Geralt learn an important lesson. Why this results in Jaskier getting shrunk until he is only six inches tall, no one seems to have any idea. Can Geralt, along with his brothers-in-arms, Child Surprise, and two powerful sorceress friends fix it? Gods only know, but it'll be funny and tragic along the way to finding out.

    Note: Title is a reference to the quote: "Come live in my heart, and pay no rent." - Samuel Lover

    Summary

    Geralt is thrown in the Cintran dungeons on Pavetta’s wedding for claiming a baby princess as his child surprise.

    Geralt thinks it’s shit luck.

    Jaskier thinks it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    aka the one in which Geralt marries into the Pankratz family and gets two fancy titles, three castles, an unlimited access to frankly amazing sex and a marble bathtub out of the deal (and also, maybe a family)

    Summary

    “Jaskier needs help moving out of his shitty boyfriend’s place. What’s your morning like?” Eskel asked Geralt as he tossed Jaskier’s coat to him.

    “Mine’s clear until noon, what are we doing?” Lambert’s voice preceded him from the back of the tattoo studio, his steel-toed shit kickers thumping loudly down the stairs at the back of the building that led to his apartment.

    “We’re helping Jaskier ditch Valdo,” Geralt replied over his shoulder, already headed out the front door. “I’ll bring Roach around.”

    “Fucking finally!” Lambert cheered with a fist pump as he followed them. “Sorry Jas, but the dude’s a dick.”

    “Coming from you, I never know if that’s an insult or a compliment,” Eskel said as he held open the door.

    “Suck it,” Lambert snarked as he walked past him and out to wait on the sidewalk.

    “No thanks. Geralt would make me sleep on the couch for at least a week.”

    Yeah, Jaskier thought to himself a bit dazedly while Eskel locked up the tattoo studio and together they climbed into Geralt’s old beater of a truck. This place was definitely better than his last job.

    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

    "The battleground is my kingdom. The queen can keep her throne."

    Female Identifying Reader x Geralt of Rivia

    "I'm Y/N L/N, Princess of Aerendale." She wiggled her fingers when he didn't shake her hand, instead deciding to pat his arm awkwardly and move her hand behind her back.

    "Geralt of Rivia," he nodded.

    "Right, well, it's a pleasure to meet you, but I desperately needed to get out of this overly large pigsty." the princess gave a side-eye to the inebriated nobles, dukes, and dutchesses that were attending the engagement feast.

    "Right, well, the job I got paid for stated not to do that very thing,"

    Summary

    A small something pinged at the edge of her senses. A shift in the breeze, a rustle of something. Fringilla held her posture, back ramrod straight as she extended her awareness to identify the culprit. An animal perhaps or— no. Not an animal. A child.

    Summary

    The problem is firstly that lying to his mum got him a boyfriend and secondly that Jaskier is besotted with said boyfriend. So, in his love-addled mind, he concludes that lying to his mum again is a splendid idea – it may as well get him a husband.

    “If all goes well, the wedding should be next year.”

    At least, it better be. Jaskier and Geralt are going to the coast tomorrow.

    Or

    Jaskier lies to his family about being engaged to Geralt for the second time... and there are way too many surprises involved.

    Summary

    Dara wishes he weren’t alone, stranded in a foreign forest, so close to Cintra – the kingdom of the great cleansing. He wishes he had a good reason for being here at this moment of time, amidst war and pain. If he were a spy or an informant for the elves, anything really that would give him purpose.

    But no, he’s not a spy, nor someone useful for his brethren; he’s just a kid that got separated from his merchant parents. A kid unfortunate enough to be travelling through hostile territory – he’s heard what they do to elves here, how they cut off their ears to keep them as trophies, how they burn them alive and watch as the flames claim them.

    Summary

    Drabbles and Oneshots set within and after 'Parallel', the first work in this series where Jaskier adopts Dara and trains him up in the bardic arts.

    I'd read Parallel first - this probably makes sense without but this is the spin-off.

    Chapter 1: Jaskier has a teeny-tiny freak out over his new found guardianship. Dara has a bath.
    Chapter 2: Jaskier and Dara attend a wedding and Dara finds The O N E. (07/10/20)
    Chapter 3: Jaskier and Dara practice rivalry in Cidaris. Anita Pankratz reconnects with her brother. (29/10/2020)
    Chapter 4: Jaskier gets bard-napped. (7/11/2020)
    Chapter 5: Glod and Dara rehearse a play. Jaskier's getting old. (20/11/2020)
    Chapter 6: Dara has two emotional days. Jaskier "dad's". (05/01/2020)
