    Summary

    Jaskier has a nightmare and Geralt tries to help.

    Excerpt:
    Finally, Jaskier lifts his head and looks around. Jaskier sees Geralt and jumps. Then he stares at him with wide watery blue eyes. Jaskier seems surprised to see Geralt.
    Where did Jaskier think he was if not with Geralt? Geralt almost asks, but judging by the look on Jaskier’s face, that is a question to ask another time…when Jaskier is less vulnerable.
    Jaskier’s mouth shakes as he whispers, “G-G-Ger-Geralt?”
    “I’m here Jaskier. What do you need?” Geralt replies in the gentlest voice he can muster. He does not dare try to touch Jaskier right now. Geralt does not wish to scare Jaskier and frankly, he cannot bear to see Jaskier flinch away from him again tonight.
    Jaskier stands and trips, nearly falling but catching himself somehow as he starts pacing around.
    Geralt stays seated as he waits for Jaskier to stop.
    Jaskier stops pacing and kneels in front of Geralt. Jaskier’s eyes are brimming with tears and his bottom lip quivers as he stares at Geralt for a few seconds. He seems to be contemplating his words. Then Jaskier asks, “We’re safe…right?”
    Jaskier’s voice cracks and so does Geralt’s heart.

    Summary

    There’s another cough. It’s louder this time, and deeper still, and Geralt turns his head, trying to peer into the rubble. He opens his mouth, but Jaskier’s name sticks in his throat, his tongue still coated with dust. Grit crunches between his molars as he swallows.

    “J’sk’r?”

    He hears the shifting of rocks, and the scratch of silk against craggy stone. It’s quickly followed by a mumbled groan of pain. The noise is weak, but so oddly close that Geralt flinches at the sound. Without thinking, he stretches his hand out, the sleeve of his tunic scraping along the floor until his fingertips brush against warm flesh.

    “Jaskier?” he tries again, more urgently.

    Summary

    It hurts.

    Waking up doesn't make it better.

    It makes it worse.

    So much worse Jaskier hopes he could fall asleep again but when he tries the pain brings him back to wakefulness time after time again until the sun peeks through the trees and all Jaskier wants to do is bury himself under the blankets or perhaps underground. Anywhere where the light doesn't reach him.

    He doesn't want to deal with this.

    Not now.

    OR

    Jaskier is having an extremely bad day.

    Summary

    You meet up with your soulmate in dreams once or twice every year your whole life, giving you the chance to grow up together and befriend each other no matter where you live. The catch is you only remember what happens in those dreams if you’re currently in one, or if you meet in real life and you BOTH want to be with each other, meaning your waking lives carry on as they would have otherwise with you none the wiser as to whether or not you have a soulmate out there.

    This leads to unexpected and wonderful tearful reunions between soulmates discovering each other in waking life, but if your waking selves don’t get along or have emotional constipation (cough, Geralt, cough cough) you and your soulmate can only watch helplessly from your dream meetings as your waking selves make things terrible for both of you without even realizing it.

    (Created my own homebrew soulmate!au rules to get myself some solid logical worldbuilding where the characters still have to choose each other in the end, no matter what what destiny says.)
