    Summary

    He spurned his enemies, raised his brothers to fight against the scum of Nilfgaard, and all for what? To be alive in the twenty-first century and have an apartment with a Wolf witcher? It seems so.

    Letho says he's mad. Jaskier simply smiles because he passed that threshold centuries ago.

    Summary

    It's roughly one hundred years after the Battle of Kaer Morhen - give or take, Geralt's lost count - Nilfgaard won the war, bringing the Continent under its iron rule. The creatures and beasts Geralt once hunted are now mere playthings for the rich and powerful. And the most interesting creature of all? Witchers.

    Summary

    Summary

    Jaskier doesn't regret marrying Geralt, even though his husband has a terrible habit of becoming Public Enemy Number One of fanatical paramilitary organisations. It does tend to put a damper on his travel plans, though.

    When he comes up to the officer's desk (because of course they had to set up tents and desks, it's all very official-looking), the officer barely gives him more than a bored once-over before intoning, "Name and surname?"

    Now, here's the problem, and why Jaskier probably should never have been a spy in the first place: he's a little shit. A complete bastard. If he's given the chance to fuck with someone, and he thinks he might get away with it, he absolutely will.

    So there's no force in the world, not even Ciri's space-time magic, that can stop him from responding, straight-faced, "Grzegorz Brzęczyszczykiewicz."

    Summary

    Somehow it was worse to remember the happy times. Things had been very good with Geralt for a while. Sure, Jaskier never felt like he could truly keep up with the Witcher, but he had tried his best back when he was around Geralt. Jaskier always tried his best for Geralt’s sake. For some reason, he wanted to impress the Witcher. Hell, at one point he asked Geralt to run away with him! Why couldn’t they just run away? Then the bard would not have to be in the awful place he was in now. He could be where he wanted: next to Geralt of Rivia. All he had to accompany him now were whatever lost souls had also lost their lives in this dungeon.

    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.

    Ch16: Eist, Calanthe, and how there's more to the relationship than just that Eist genuinely likes Calanthe, because just that wouldn't avoid other problems.

    Summary

    Jaskier has always felt things on a deeper level than most, and more often, and he has gone through life this way. He has coping mechanisms, of course - drinking, talking, singing, etc. He can't be overwhelmed by his emotions all the time, after all.

    After the mountain, Jaskier's coping mechanism is drinking. Turns out, there's something in it, and Nilfgaard knows exactly how to break the songbird.

    Summary

    If there's one thing Jaskier truly has in life, it's his ability to use words. And although he knows there are a lot of things that can comfortably go unspoken, he himself is not one of them; without his words, Jaskier would be all but unborn.

    Summary

    “It turns out life gave me a blessing instead of you,” Jaskier whispered. “It finally gave me a person who cares about me for being me.”

    Summary

    Arkelia of Kovir is an anomaly, a white-haired, golden-eyed girl born of a rejected sorceress and an unknown father. Born a slave in Kovir, she lived most of her life following orders, under punishment of death, but when a Kaedwenian Witch steals her away, her true destiny is revealed. She learns what she is meant to be, the only one of her kind, a natural-born Witcher. Her new life in Kaedwen brings her straight into Geralt of Rivia's path, who has been tasked with 'saving' her from the Witch Pareilla. When her loyalty to traditional Witcher ideals comes into question, she finds a new home with the most hated enemy of the Continent, Nilfgaard.
