    Summary

    🦄UPDATE!🦄
    I edited my chapter order. When I started this beast of a fic, I didn’t know I’d be going in order of event and it always bothered me that my fic started out-of-order. I finally figured out how to move chapters around and fixed it! So now it can actually be read as a smooth compendium to the books then games if you want. Yeah!!

    This is a work of 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.

    Also, every chapter will have some element of Geralt x Yennefer because there’s a depressing lack of it in this particular fandom and I want to rectify that. Plus, Geralt and Yennefer deserve ALL THE LOVE!

    If I had to describe it in one sentence, it's a love letter to Geralt and Yennefer and the family they create together.

    Finally, the Netflix show and all its storylines will not apply here because talk about a canon butchering! Books and games are my jam.

    Summary

    Ten years had gone by since Geralt last saw Jaskier. Ten years since he'd yelled at the bard and chased him away. Years spent filled with guilt. Until one day, Geralt came face to face with his bard; or what his bard had become.

    Or: Geralt stumbles over Jaskier in the middle of the wood, confused why suddenly the bard has horns, claws, and massive wings.

    Summary

    "He frowns as he spots an empty table at the other end of the room. “What about him?”

     

    The others don’t even follow his line of sight - seemingly already aware who he’s talking about. “The White Wolf,” Istredd tells him, as Jaskier stares at the imposing guy sitting all alone at the table, eyes trained on his plate, face partially shielded by a curtain of white hair."

     Or: Jaskier is sent to prison for prostitution, where he learns of the White Wolf - a prisoner that doesn't interact with others at all, and who is speculated to have committed some truly heinous crimes. Jaskier, ever curious and with no sense of self-preservation, decides to get to know the guy. Though that proves a bit harder than he had first expected.

    Summary

    "An agonizing silence had fallen over the city. Fear clenched at her guts. There was something in the dark. Something dangerous. Something deadly. She felt it in her bones. A growl just behind her was the only warning she received before a violent blow struck her in the back, sending her brutally to the ground, breathing cut short. The beast snarled and turned her on her back brutally. Faced with the nightmare that had caught her, the young woman screamed."

    A violent murder darkens this early spring in Novigrad. Local authorities call at the World Intelligence and Tactical Commando of Hunters and Elite Research, aka W.I.T.C.H.E.R. to help them resolve the case.
    Colonel de Rivia, his partner Yennefer of Vengerberg as well as Captain Lambert Dewrin and his partner Cirilla Rhiannon de Rivia are in charge of the investigation.
    And when the young musician Jaskier was involved in their case, things became particularly complicated for the colonel with an attraction neither can deny.

    Summary

    Witchers feel emotions, Renfri wasn't a monster, Roach is notably chill, Geralt prefers nonhuman company, Jaskier is generally good at people but doesn't have much experience with outliers and outcasts and is happy to ignore objections because he thinks he knows best, 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 if Geralt won't first, Geralt lies just all the time, Jaskier is surprisingly tolerant of Geralt getting him on Calanthe's shitlist.

    Episode 4 & Geralt: Geralt has very good reason to be acting the way he does toward Jaskier, and he is absolutely capable of being relaxed around people he trusts and referring to someone as his friend. His behavior throughout the party, while unusual and sometimes irrational, can be understood if you consider him having a particular grudge that flared up when people started going on about Destiny and also issues with his role as a witcher. Also, he was probably drunk.

    Summary

    Jaskier was a god of three things. First and foremost, music. It was needed before the other two, due to it being the way he performed his purpose.

    Second, love. It was effectively what everyone believed him to be. Another god of love to serve the people well, filling their lives. But it was far from all he was.

    Third, he was the fate of hearts. Which was where his purpose came into play. Binding matched hearts, making people see.

    Of course, a god so full of purpose and destiny could not go without a fated heart himself. And somehow… his heart was both his life and his hurt.
