    Summary

    Geralt remembers stumbling back to where he’d left Roach to graze, feet unsteady and vision swimming. He remembers rifling through the saddle bags with clumsy fingers, fumbling with the vial of antidote and nearly dropping it twice before he’d finally managed to pull the cork free with his teeth.

    He remembers;

    Leaning on Roach when his knees had threatened to buckle.

    Sucking in too quick, wheezing breaths.

    Lungs burning.

    Limbs growing heavier and heavier and—

    And then.

    Nothing.

    Summary

    He looked up, and a man stood before him. Geralt hadn't heard him approach. That was the first sign there was something odd.

    The second was the faint but still noxious smell of poison that clung to his fingers, just strong enough to make out over the spiced perfume he wore. And under all of that was a richer smell, as familiar as Geralt's own scent, because it was Geralt's own. Or a witcher's, at least.

    Summary

    The world around him went oddly silent--drowned out by the roar of blood in his ears.

    A lock of familiar brown hair fell onto the table, tied neatly with a string from a lute. Mouth dry with panic and fingers shaking, Geralt brushed his fingers over the tiny bundle before reaching for the piece of parchment folded beside it.

    Any hope that the package was some sort of mistake died a quick death at the short message scrawled across the page:

     

    Come and play, Butcher--before he can’t.

    Summary

    “You’ve got to wonder about the mentality of a group of people who’d come together, build a trading post on the Pontar within a forest full of monsters, pirates, and murderous elves, then triumphantly name the place ‘Flotsam’ with no sense of irony whatsoever,” Jaskier said.

    Summary

    Geralt’s head turns to him just as he’s jumping into his arms. Obviously, he catches Jaskier, in his very strong, very big arms. Still probably processing what’s happening, Geralt’s body is tense, unmoving.

    Jaskier doesn’t care.
