    Summary

    Jaskier is a greeter at a local munch. When a new guest shows up, he is immediately enthralled by the man. However, the man is quiet and keeps to himself despite the whole point of the gathering being to socialize. So, Jaskier takes it upon himself to make the man feel welcome. His efforts do not go as smoothly as he would hope, and the man isn't even there for the munch but to see Yennefer, but that doesn't stop the man from leaving his number.

    Jaskier knows better than anyone that first looks can be deceiving, but can he really handle the White Wolf? A man known to test the mettle of even the most experienced Doms?

    Summary

    He just turned to go back to the inn after yet another day at the market with no news of any Witchers, the White Wolf or even the Butcher of Blaviken (he knew Geralt hated that name but hey, at this point Jaskier would take what he could get) when there were a series of shouts from behind him to “GET OUT OF THE WAY!”

    Jaskier whipped around just in time to see a horse barrelling towards him at a full gallop, knocking aside people and stalls like they were nothing. He rolled to the ground and out of the path of destruction, pulling his arms over his face instinctually, when the sounds of hooves pounding against packed dirt stopped suddenly and there was a warm muzzle prodding his arm. 

    Jaskier peeked up uncertainly. He had definitely done many strange things in his life, but he could honestly say “stopped a horse on a mad death stampede” was not one of them and he wasn't quite sure what to expect. 

    He looked once, looked again, and then a third time just to be sure because there was no way that this could possibly be “Roach?”

     

    or: Geralt is tortured by some stray Nilfgaardians years after the war. Luckily Jaskier finds him, but his journey back to health is anything but simple

    Summary

    Jaskier wasn't suited for this life. He saw pure horror and somehow turned it into some great romantic tragedy. It was bullshit, that's what it was.

    That was why Geralt had tried to head Jaskier in the other direction from all the dangers that came with the life of a Witcher. Jaskier, being Jaskier, somehow found his way back. Following what happened when he did, Geralt truly wished he hadn't.

    Major character death. Don't care if that spoils it for anyone, it happens and I want everyone reading to be know what they're getting into. Can be read as relationship Geralt/Jaskier or close friends Geralt and Jaskier.

    Summary

    “Stay with me this winter,” he didn’t dare say, “forget the college, forget your students- come with me,” the dangerous words danced on his tongue, but didn’t dare take the plunge into the open air, where Geralt would have to consider them- to take them in and realize he truly did care for the bard.

    “See you around, Geralt! In the spring! Same spot! Don’t forget, dearest!” Jaskier grinned. Why did he always have to talk like that? Geralt merely grunted in response, not trusting himself to speak for fear of saying something he wasn’t yet ready to say. Jaskier gave Geralt a parting hug, one he hadn’t been ready for, then turned on his heel, and left- stumbling off into the distance. Geralt could only hope the stupid poet would live long enough for them to meet again.

    Summary

    Eskel stepped in front of him, blocking his path. “Where’s your cane?” he asked gently.

    Geralt knew by now that Eskel wasn’t asking him to make him feel like he was invalid, he was just concerned about his well being. But that didn’t stop Geralt from rolling his eyes.

    “In our room,” he muttered. He didn’t use the cane that Lambert had carved for him many, many winters ago very often. Only when the ache in his leg became so persistent that he couldn’t keep his footing.

    He didn’t bother to tell Eskel that using his cane would make no difference since he could hardly put weight on it to begin with. It hadn’t gotten this bad in a while and he didn’t want to worry him.

    “Well at least let me help you to the couch and then I’ll go grab it for you,” Eskel said, taking the book from Geralt and offering him his arm.

    Geralt sighed. He knew that he reeked of the sharp, acidic scent of pain and that Eskel would realize sooner or later that it was considerably worse than usual, if he hadn’t already.

    Summary

    A claw broke through his defence and cut through his armor and into his shoulder like a hot knife moved through butter. The witcher didn’t feel any pain, the importance of slaying the monster had caught all of his attention. He turned around and brought the blade high up over it’s shaggy head before thrusting it downward, nailing the head of the creature to the ground. It died screaming.

    Summary

    For the prompt:

    Even though Witchers are sterile, there is an expectation that they won't cum inside of their partners. While there are many valid reasons why someone may be opposed to having their partner finish inside of them--that's not what I'm after here. It's another manifestation of stigmatization and racism.

    Geralt is fully aware of this. All of his partners have felt this way (except maybe Yennefer, but Yennefer isn't exactly a solid indicator of the general populace's feelings on the matter), and even though Jaskier has tried so hard to reinvent his image... he naturally assumes Jaskier will feel the same the first time they sleep together.

    Summary

    When Geralt returns from a contract to find his employer gone for the night and no coin to be found until she returns, he begrudgingly accepts an apology bottle of wine from a servant and takes it and his bard back to their campsite outside of town. Jaskier opens the wine and settles in for a long night under the stars of lambasting nobility, only to discover that it's not what they were told it was...

    Summary

    Geralt looks at the witcher, looks at him properly, looks past the silver hair and golden eyes and scars and blood, and the face he sees -

    It’s impossible. It can’t be.

    Because Jaskier is dead.

    But somehow, this witcher in front of him has Jaskier’s face, and Geralt takes a shaky step towards the ghost in front of him, trembling so much that he drops his sword. “Ja - he’s dead. I saw his body. You can’t - you can’t be him.

    Or: After his outburst on the mountain, Geralt arrives too late to save Jaskier from a bloody death. A year later, he and Ciri are saved by a witcher who is painfully familiar, bearing the face of a dead bard. After he reunites with Jaskier, Geralt has to regain his trust, slowly showing Jaskier that he truly cares.

    Summary

    "Witchers can't feel. They have no emotions, no desire, no distaste. They can't want, and so they ask for nothing. Nothing but contracts to kill."
    These are words that Geralt lives by. They make up who he is. He is a Witcher, and Witcher's don't- can't- feel.
    Jaskier seems to think otherwise.
    Or,
    Geralt wants something, Jaskier notices, and teaches him that it's okay to want.

    Summary

    Blood. Its blood. Blood on the walls and floors, it seeps through my shirt and clings to my skin like hot oil. It’s warm. Feels hot, almost burns. Has blood always been this hot?

    Lost in a fever dream, Geralt finds himself trapped in a memory out of a nightmare, back in the place where he once died. Jaskier tries to reach him and bring him back, but nobody leaves that place unscathed, even now, so many years later.
