    Summary

    Now that he’s gotten older, and more importantly, famous, it’s gotten... harder to write songs. While Dandelion loved being a famous and respected bard... all he really yearned to do was travel out on the open road again with Geralt.

    +++

    Set after the events of The Witcher 3, Dandelion has settled into life at his tavern: The Chameleon.

    The alcohol, the music and the ease of it all was more than he could ever ask for. But when Geralt finally stops by and sees his bard perform for the first time in probably years... will Dandelion take the opportunity to finally bare all his emotions for his witcher and find a way back into his life?

    Summary

    Geralt has always suspected that Jaskier isn't human, but it didn't seem important to figure out what. When Jaskier wakes up with no memory, unable to speak or understand Common, they have to improvise, and Geralt finds himself wishing that he had asked a lot more questions while he still had the chance.

    Summary

    edit 26/5 - updated with new fanart, check it out!<3

    Julian is tired. There’s an exhaustion that seeps deep into his bones, weighing him down. His life is the Path, nothing more, and he wonders what would have happened if his parents hadn’t handed him off to a witcher. He wonders what he would have been like if he’d been human.

    He shouldn't think about things he can't have - there’s no use in making himself more bitter and ruminating over what could have been. He will always be a witcher, and he cannot change that.

    But he wants a chance at a normal life.

    *

    Before Jaskier the bard was born, there was Julian of Cintra, a witcher tired of his life on the Path. When Julian calls in a favour from a sorceress, he gets the life he wants and lives four decades as Jaskier. After something horrible happens to Jaskier after the dragon hunt, he returns to his life as Julian.

    Summary

    There was something about the bard that Geralt couldn't place. It wasn't his boldness in waltzing right up to him, or how he seemed strangely unswayed by his cold front, or even the way he glued himself to the Witcher's side. Jaskier made his medallion sing and tug at its chain any time they touched.
    Perhaps that plowing lute of his was enchanted. But Geralt had a funny feeling that the poet was hiding something behind that warmhearted smile he found himself so spellbound by.

    Summary

    Jaskier saw the sharp stone a fraction too late and he couldn't stop himself from stepping on it with his bare feet. He hissed in pain, baring his fangs. It caused him to stumble and fall on his knees, catching himself with bloody palms on the wet forest floor before his face could hit the ground. But he could still hear the yellow eyed monster coming closer and he quickly got up again and continued running, if one could still call it that. “Wait, damn it.”, a deep voice behind him demanded but he would not obey. He wouldn't even dream of obeying the command of a monster that wanted to kill him.

    Summary

    That is, Jaskier thinks that Geralt is devoted to him and only him.

    Summary

    Jaskier's mind couldn't help but wander to the child of surprise. Even on his travels, he heard of the fall of Cintra. Calanthe, for some reason, still welcomed him back to the courts to play.

    He became quite close with Ciri. He considered her family. It hurt to think of her no longer alive.

    "Who's there?" A little voice asked.

    A little girl. The voice abruptly brought him back to reality, snapping him out of his train of thought.

    ----

    Or; Jaskier finds Ciri in the forest and helps her find her destiny.

    Summary

    It`s odd, thinking that this is how it had all begun with Geralt, that they can still be this even all these years later and after all they`ve been through. How he`d gone from an eighteen-year-old barely tolerated nuisance to Geralt`s… whatever he is, now. Jaskier will catch himself watching the Witcher at times, half expecting him to disappear, but he never does.

    Our little family, on the road to Kaer Morhen. A journey of healing and heartbreak and hope.

    Summary

    Geralt promises himself that this time he won't fall in love with him. This time he will walk away and let him live his life in peace. This time he won’t die because of him.

    He’s never been good at keeping promises.

    Summary

    Jaskier travels alone now, until he bumps into a new witcher at a new inn. He decides to talk to him, because, really, what has he to lose? Eskel is nice, much nicer than Geralt...he lets Jaskier unleash some emotional baggage and let's him get in a cuddle. Witchers are so very touch starved. Jaskier is tired of traveling alone, so he invites himself into this new witchers life. It takes Eskel far, far to long to realize who Jaskier actually is...like, a year. Jaskier doesn't help.

    This is literally just going to be a self indulgent, headcanon-y, trope filled, all kinds of everything fic, so that I can work on writing and have something to do during the day. Beware of comma overdose...And the serious tense changes. No beta unfortunately.

    Summary

    A Bard’s magic is, at its most intrinsic, based on love. A true Bard reaches out to the masses with their song, and the faith of the singers breathes life into the music. They have a magic that can sway the heart of any tyrant, win the love of any maid, even break the most powerful of curses. A Bard’s spell is a thing built on love and trust; in the end it is like a kind of religion. The Bard says, wouldn’t it be nice, if it were like this? And the words become a wish carried by a thousand mouths, and the world changes.
     

    “You’re a Bard,” Yennefer said.
    “That is my occupation,” Jaskier replied.

    Summary

    When a run-in with violently prejudiced villagers ends in Jaskier seriously wounded and suffering injuries that should not be affecting him in the way they are, Geralt and Ciri confront the reality that they might not know everything about their bard's past. The journey to the healing avalible in Brokilon forest is a long one, and no one is sure what they will find in the forest, but if they want to save Jaskier's life they must confront whatever is waiting there for them.

    In classic me fashion, I've taken aspects wholesale from the books and the show and mixed them together into my wonderful stew of authorly evil. CW for: fantasy racism, intense familial conflict and overprotective parents, and illness.

    Summary

    Transforming should have felt relieving. Freeing even, for Jaskier had forced himself to stay trapped in his human form for far too long. Hadn’t bathed in his own fire for centuries, nor amassed and protected a hoard like his kind so often tended to do.

    Instead, he had placed his love and care into the one person who ever mattered to him, and had it thrown back in his face.

    Assuming the form of his real self should have been a weight lifted off his shoulders, but as he scrambles to get his clothes back on from where he had hidden them in a hollow divot in a tree at the opposite end of the forest, all he can feel is pain.

    Agony. Soul searing agony in his chest, and a whole lifetime’s worth of fury.

    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.
