    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

    Ciri knew Geralt felt bad about making them sleep in the forest each night, hidden away from any roads or signs of other travelers. But it was their only choice. Nilfgaard was close, and she didn't forget her grandmother's words.

    Keep moving.

    --

    Ciri and Geralt learn how much they've needed each other while hiding from Nilfgaard. But once they finally find a place to settle, how will mysterious powers, past traumas, and an army on their tail test their growing bond?

    Summary

    Halldora is one of the only female witchers out there. Coming from a broken family and a disbanded school, she hasn't got much to live for besides killing and making money. No prophecies, no destinies, no bullshit. But her reclusive lifestyle is turned on its head when so-called 'destiny' walks into her life. After getting mixed up with a witcher nearly as withdrawn as her, she sets out on a journey that just might turn her into a believer.

    Summary

    Sequel to Hold On

     

    It's been a year since Geralt and Yennefer rescued Jaskier from Nilfgaard's clutches.

    However, Nilfgaard still refuse to give up the hunt for both Jaskier and Ciri, leaving Geralt to guard his beloved Bard, keeping him safe from Nilfgaard, as they journey along the Path, with Ciri safely tucked away in Kaer Morhen.

    Nilfgaard is moving along the Continent at an alarming pace, taking over more and more of the South, leaving Jaskier fearful that Cahir will find him again and would take him away and cage him.

    They couldn't even being to guess what Destiny had in store for them.

    Summary

    Geralt is a seasoned witcher, but there are some contracts he'll never be truly prepared for. A contract posted by a former lover of his, one Yennefer of Vengerberg, seeking a witcher to be her company at a banquet at Thanedd is firmly outside of anything he's used to doing or seeing.

    Her stipulation is simple: Geralt joins her, pretends as though he's there as her personal guest for the purpose of maintaining appearances, and he finds work in the process. There's no other strings attached, but Geralt can tell when she's not telling him something.

    With a promise of a full coin purse at the end of the contract, Geralt agrees to join Yennefer and together they find themselves embroiled in a conspiracy between a mage and a witcher with one goal in mind-- stopping them.

    Summary

    In order to cope with his feelings, Geralt writes letters to all his former loves to get over them. The letters were absurd and trivial at this point, but Geralt still kept them hidden to never be seen or read by anyone. One day, all the letters inexplicably get sent out.

    With his true feelings suddenly out into the world, Geralt must find a way to cover up his tracks and act like he didn’t mean a single one of them. To do that, he enters a fake relationship with Jaskier who simply wants revenge on his ex, Valdo Marx. Geralt opted out on telling Jaskier the only letter he still meant was the one he wrote to him.

    Summary

    “Oi, Istredd! Girl from Aretuza wants a word!”

     

     

    Istredd’s head snaps up. He thinks for a second he must have misheard, he and Yennefer agreed that was best to be discreet -

     

    But it’s not Yennefer. It’s a girl he doesn’t know, braided-up hair somewhere between dark blonde and light brown and posture radiating uncertainty.

     

     

    Istredd finds himself drawn into Yennefer's circle of friends. It doesn't change as much as you might think.

    Summary

    "Bless me, Father, for I have...sinned."

    Jaskier's voice shook with nerves he hadn't felt in a long time. He was glad for the privacy of the confession booth, for he did not know how else he would face Father Geralt after what he'd done.

    ---

    Or: the Priest AU that no one asked for but that's been stuck in my head for a whole fucking year. Please beware and read the warning at the beginning of the first (pilot) chapter to know exactly what this story will be about. Title from Kaleo's song "Way Down We Go", which is actually what inspired this in the first place.

    Summary

    This is a spin off series to fill the gaps from the past of this other fic, kind of a prequel, of 'Time has passed'. I’m struggling to find inspiration to continue that story, so I picked the books again and ended up with this instead. Perhaps I should start a new game+...

    Based on my favorite parts from the books, adapted to the 1920s-30s setting of the fic, with a couple of headcanons in between.

    Some of the parts are straight translations from the books, I identified them in italic, but if you don't want spoilers from the books, you should skip those. Perhaps even not read the fic at all. Fair warning here.

    Summary

    “What am I living for and what am I dying for are the same question.”
    -Margaret Atwood, The Year of the Flood

    Eskel's in Ohio when Yennefer calls. He’s reluctant to pick up; he’s still not over Geralt, and he's got zero desire to chat with Geralt's new lover.

    Turns out Yen isn’t his lover anymore, and this isn’t about Geralt. It’s about witcher’s work.

    Yennefer owns Portal, one of New York City's most popular gay clubs. A Post-Conjunction Entity (PCE) is hunting her clientele, leaving a string of withered corpses in its wake. The police are doing jackshit. Will Eskel come back to a city full of bad memories and take a job off the books to stop it?

    He'll sure as hell try. Along the way, he’ll cross paths with Istredd, a man with sorcerer’s eyes and a painful past of his own. If Eskel doesn't work fast enough, they both might become the PCE's next victims.

    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

    Former student Yennefer has passed the last five years of her life battling against addiction, depression and hardships. She holds Tissaia de Vries from the University of Aretuza accountable for her downfall. However, in desperate times and hopeless situations, her former mentor appears to her as a substitute of her conscience; somehow helping her navigate between the absolute worse and the insufferable lesser evil.
    After her ghost from Aretuza tells her she has to stop running away from the world, the young woman travels to Sodden Hill, hoping that the calmness of the historical site will help her make plans for her future.
    But how will she react when Professor Tissaia de Vries herself is on a break in Sodden? Will Yennefer be able to let their bad blood behind her? What if Tissaia is not the cold manipulative mastermind she believes her to be? What if, despite all odds, a true friendship arises? And what if, after some time, they start to realize that, drawn into one another, more feelings are at stake?

    (Modern AU + Enemies to friends to lovers trope) A story about Yennefer's journey to self-acceptance and Tissaia's unapologetic self.
