    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

    Eventually Jaskier settles down on the bed. When he’s been silent for several long moments Geralt cracks open an eye. The light from the fire in the hearth is more than enough to see by for his enhanced eyesight. Jaskier is curled up on the bed, back to the wall and limbs gathered up to his chest. It’s a childlike pose that strikes a dissonant chord in Geralt’s chest. He remembers spending nights with Jaskier in other inns, in camps on the roadside, and Jaskier sprawls when he sleeps. Limbs flung out in every direction, sometimes close enough to grasp for Geralt’s warmth.

    ---

    When Geralt carries Jaskier out of the cellar beneath the cottage on the outskirts of the abandoned town he thinks, this is as bad as it will get.

    Summary

    In crossing the threshold of Alioth, they stopped being Variants of each other, and became their own versions of themselves. That meant possibilities, an infinite array of ways this could end. In some distant version, Sylvie stops, listens, and doesn't push Loki away when he suggests the unfathomable: running the TVA by her side.

    ...Basically, this only exists because I couldn't shake the glorious idea of "Sylvie: Divine Empress of Time", or the idea that Loki would do anything to give it to her. Simply, pieces of an imagined future where they accepted the offer from He Who Remains, and the eventual toll that choice takes on Sylvie.

    Summary

    Geralt gets his blessing from the Djinn. He thought he had 3 wishes. Turns out he had 4.

    Jaskier vanishes on the mountain. With Cintra close to becoming a war zone, he doesn't have time to right his wrong. Geralt will break the wishes from the Djinn but he needs to find his child surprise first.

    Julian was attending his cousins name-day celebration. It was boring, the bard was dreadful and the entertainment was dull. When he'd wished for a little more excitement he hadn't wanted Nilfgaard to attack! Now he's on the run with his cousin. he has to protect Ciri at all cost.

    TLDR: If Geralt had never met Jaskier.

    Summary

    "I can hear your thoughts from here, bard," she says without looking up. "It's barely dawn—have you no decency?" 

    "It's as you said, it's barely dawn," he says, moving to stand just behind her so he can wrap his arms around her waist. He tucks his face in her neck, inhaling her lilac and gooseberry perfume. "The passion of the night persists into these early waking hours. Would it not be a greater offense to ignore the beauty of the temptress before me?" 

    "We're not fucking in here." 

    Jaskier sighs deeply in the most dramatic fashion he can muster. "A shame."

    A bard and a sorceress are sort of sickeningly in love, actually

    Summary

    Perhaps Loki of Asgard dreamed of the future but that wasn’t her. She was Sylvie of Apocalypse. Keeping to the now, never looking past the sharp edge of her blade, that was the only way to survive. Blades cut but dashed hopes cut deeper. Just surviving had to be enough. After a millennia of life on the run, Sylvie was an expert at survival. It was living that threw her for a loop.

    To move forward, you must first understand how you got there. As Sylvie struggles to find a new glorious purpose after finally slaying the man behind the TVA, she encounters an old enemy and finally learns what choices triggered her nexus event.

    Summary

    There are certain domains of Chaos that even the most experienced mages do not dare touch - there is Chaos that can be controlled, compelled and channelled and Chaos that defies all efforts to do so. The Nilfgaardian Intelligence has been nudging at the borders of 'safe' chaos for decades and the line is about to get a lot more blurred.

    Add a Witcher, a Princess and a few more mages to the mix and what will you get? An interesting story at the very least - maybe even one worthy of a song...

    Summary

    'He was going to tell the story.

    He’d decided that much. Or at least, a version of the story. He had to. She’d said he owed her nothing, and she may think that, but it was just not true. She’d opened her home to him and in these last months of sleeping where he fell and eating what he could find, that was a kindness that could not go ignored.

    Maybe it was a tale as old as the stars, a heart broken and struggling to piece itself together again. But the classics were classics for a reason.

    And his tragedy, because it was a tragedy he’d come to realise, thinking back to the youth in Posada with a song in his heart, dust in his hair and bread in his trousers, and where he is now, his tragedy may be unheard of to a seal. Maybe she’d never needed to rinse her ears of human matters.

    He owed it to himself too. What sort of cautionary tale was he, if no one ever heard it?'

    After the mountain, Jaskier follows the slope, then the stream, then the river, then the shoreline.
    Seabirds don’t sing, they cry.

    Summary

    It’s almost 2 months after the Mountain Incident and Jaskier is sitting at a tavern, drinking his sorrows away. About Geralt, his sorry state of being (no lute, low on coin, alone), fall of Cintra just 2 weeks ago, fate and everything else. He though he was going to stay by the witcher’s side forever, but life’s no fairy tale. So more ale for him.
    In the corner Nilfgaardian soldiers get ready to kidnap the bard and give him to their wicked sorceress leader to force information from him about the lost princess. She may torture and curse him to get what they need, but hey, what can you expect from Fringilla Vigo’s student?

    Geralt’s 100% done with destiny. He’s with Ciri and has to hide from Nilfgaard's forces. And he still has to find Yennefer and beg her to locate his bard, damn it! And he needs to apologise if he wants to get his “dear heart” back.

    Yennefer licks her wound hidden in Brudge and contemplates her life.
    Triss helps fellow mages in Vizima.

    Lambert and Eskel travel south in search of Geralt, because they got letters from his bard saying their brother will need help.
    Oh, and they don’t even know about half of the shitshow it’s about to become. Truly ballad worthy story.

    Summary

    The coastal town of Hazeborough appears through the mists as a nice enough place for Jaskier to avoid the witcher’s rumoured approach, but appearances can be deceptive. Once in the town's clutches, it doesn’t take long for Jaskier to find himself seduced by a dangerous woman with a dark secret, and caught in a frightening and violently escalating curse that only true love can break.

    Summary

    After birthing himself from a fresh grave lifetime-decades ago, Jaskier has played the bard across the continent. He is content because he is who he chooses to be: safely forgettable; a weed who makes music.

    … Until the witcher, and the child surprise. Until the war. If he runs from his birthright, he risks the lives of everyone whom he ever held dear. If he embraces it – he loses them anyway.

    Summary

    “Because, I—I can’t help it,” Jaskier said and even over the rushing of the wind, Geralt could hear his heartbeat quicken. “I love you, Geralt. I have for so, so long. Thought you should know.”

    Geralt’s eyes widened. He turned back—shock beating out his anger. He met Jaskier’s gaze and it hurt to see the tears streaming down his face. For a moment, Geralt thought he must have heard wrong. How could Jaskier love him? How could he say that right after Geralt told him he wanted to be rid of him? Too startled to say anything, silence hung heavy between them. Only the sound of rushing wind and his own pounding heart filled Geralt’s ears.

     

    When Geralt tells Jaskier he wants nothing more than to be rid of him, he's startled when Jaskier confesses that he has loved him for years. Unable to say anything back, Geralt thinks about that moment over and over again until he and Ciri run into Jaskier again in Ard Carraigh. Either he needs to finally voice thoughts he's kept hidden for years or risk losing Jaskier forever.
