    Summary

    Hundreds of years ago, the Conjunction of the Spheres combined many worlds into one. Where once there was modern technology across the land, now there were wide expanses of magic and monsters winding in between which came to be known as the Wood.

    Jaskier was born in Lettenhove, one of the last Modern Cities left. He'd only crossed the border once as a child, but he knew his destiny lay in the Old Cities. He was meant to be a troubadour and a poet, a singer of renown.

    But nobody went into the Wood without an armed escort. Or maybe a Witcher, if you believed the stories. Jaskier couldn't afford to travel with a caravan and nobody had seen a Witcher in decades, so he goes on his own and is surprised to run into a cat eyed legend his first day. Despite the man trying to get rid of him almost immediately, their paths soon cross again and Geralt becomes Jaskier's reluctant bodyguard. It doesn't take Jaskier long to realize that he doesn't know himself as well as he thought, and his music quickly develops from a hobby turned profession into an unexpected talent.
    If only he knew how to use it.

    AU with modern technology- takes place mostly in canon fantasy setting.

    Summary

    Like Jaskier, Oxenfurt Academy was both old and new at the same time. Everywhere he went, he saw memories. Jaskier didn't know if this was good or bad. He was supposed to live his own life, start his own education, but the old memories reasserted themselves, a reminder that he was part of this place once, as a student and a teacher. He remembered both endeavors being positive experiences, yet still a little fraught at times.

    But now, he was also part of Corvo Bianco. Back home in their Southern keep, the one in the North long gone, three beautiful wolves waited for Jaskier, and oh did he want to see them. They all agreed: he needed to spread his wings. He—Jaskier de Stael, not Jaskier the Bard—dreamed of Oxenfurt since he was a little boy and nothing should stop him from attending, especially since they had more than the means to get him there.

    Summary

    Two months after Geralt breaks up with him, Jaskier runs into Yennefer at Coachella.

    “Oh fuck no,” she says, which he thinks is pretty fucking unfair, all things considered.

    Summary

    Geralt, who moonlights as a vigilante known as the Witcher, comes to Novigrad to chase a serial killer who’s been eluding him for years. His new job as a reporter for The Continental Press is just a way to pay the bills until he moves on— nothing more, nothing less. He doesn’t have time for the attentions of the adorable entertainment writer, Jaskier, who keeps getting himself into trouble. He definitely doesn’t have time for his own growing feelings for Jaskier.

    A prequel to “I’m Only Human After All,” covering the three years leading up to the events of that story. Can be read as a standalone.

    Summary

    Geralt was tired of being immortal and watch the world change around him while he tried to find his place in it. He was the last witcher to grace this earth and as honouring as it was, it didn't fill up the hollowness inside him.

    He still spent his days with hunting for monsters while he worked for an organisation that kept every magical being and supernatural creature as a secret from the public eye, while he tried hard to avoid his memories about a certain teasing smile and cornflower-blue eyes.

    Hundreds of years after he last saw his bard Geralt got a new case where the only eyewitness was a young brunet, with bright eyes, clever mouth and he called himself Jaskier.
    Geralt didn't know if he landed in his personal hell or it was just a dream come true but he knew one thing. He was not ready to face Jaskier again and deal with his emotions at the same time.

    Summary

    The is the first part to my piece A Love Story. It follows the chronological story of the books then games so it can actually be read as a compendium should you like. It begins when Geralt and Yennefer meet in Rinde and ends with them retiring to Toussaint. There is an epilogue available that is being updated called Postcards from Toussaint.

    SUMMARY
    This is a work of chronological ficlets that examine different areas of canon that were left ambiguous in the books and games. Basically, I pick a quote from the books or scene from games and do a deeper dive into it. If I had to describe it in one sentence, it's a love letter to Geralt and Yennefer and the family they create together. I hope I did justice to these two.

    If you are new to the Witcher fandom and curious about the canon relationship of these two, this is the fic for you.

    Finally, the Netflix show and all its story lines will not apply here. This will only follow the book and then game story line.

    Summary

    The morning after Jaskier’s first wedding, he wakes up with a pounding hangover, naked and drooling all over the shoulder of his best friends’ fiancé.

    Oh fuck, he thinks, noting the glint of a cheap wedding band on his finger, the large block capital writing sprawled on Yennefer’s back that announces ‘JUST MARRIED’ three weeks too early.

    Promptly, he stumbles to the hotel bathroom to throw up.

    -///-

    Or, when Jaskier drunkenly marries his best friend's fiance in Vegas everything in his life gets a hundred times more complicated, not least of all because Jaskier's been pining after said best friend for a decade and a half. If he was going to ruin Geralt's wedding by drunkenly confessing his love to anyone he really didn't think it would be Yennefer and yet...here they are.

    "I didn't know you were together," his asshole of a friend responds. He grunts again. They weren't, except they were, a bit.

    Summary

    Geralt has just completed his Trials and left Kaer Morhen on the Path for the first time when tragedy strikes in Blaviken. Thinking the world has no use for him beyond being a tool to keep them safe, Geralt travels down the coast, looking for work and trying to bury the hurt he feels after what happened in Blaviken. He winds up taking on a contract in the fishing village of Isa, where he is helped by Essi Daven, a musician and enigma, and her brother Ered. When the contract goes wrong, he will find himself relying on others when all the stories he has been telling himself say he cannot rely on anyone, lest he put them in harm's way again.

    ----

    OR I love the story in Sword of Destiny with Essi Daven so much that I had to write a fic with her in it. It's not really romance, just a young Geralt learning to trust in himself and others after Blaviken. Even if you haven't read the books, it's fairly self-explanatory.

    Summary

    “You must be Lambert’s new roommate.”

    “Geralt,” the man supplies.

    “Geralt,” Jaskier tests the name; finds he likes the way it rolls off his tongue. “It’s nice to meet you.”

    Or: the one where Jaskier falls for his casual hook-up’s very attractive roommate.

    Summary

    Valdo yawns, “He knew that too! He was actually on the way here, but he then turned back when I told him that you died in some ditch or something. He shouldn't have left you alone, after all! And, Julian dear, you should have seen his face, he was devasted. I thought that Witchers were mutants with no emotions, but let me tell you, your Wolf had the word pain written all over his face.”
    “Oh. Oh, Valdo, you didn't. You didn't really tell Geralt that I fucking died!”

     

    Valdo tells Geralt that Jaskier is dead. It's up to Jaskier, now, to make things right.

    Summary

    Falling in love with his roommate is, objectively, a bad idea—but most of the major decisions of Jaskier's life have been bad ideas, and they've gotten him this far.
