    Summary

    Jaskier squints, thoughtful. “You didn’t really answer my question, though. I asked your favorite part of the midsummer festival.”

    Geralt stills and sets down his sword. “Don’t have one.”

    “Oh come on Geralt,” he needles. “We’re stuck here, indulge me.”

    “I don’t indulge you,” Geralt grumbles.

    Jaskier waves his hand. “Of course you do, but you’re dodging the question.”

    A beat passes. Jaskier stills.

    “Geralt,” he starts quietly, “You have been to a midsummer festival, right?”

    Ah, fuck.

    ***

    Stuck in quarantine, Jaskier learns that Geralt has never celebrated midsummer. Determined, Jaskier decides he’s going to give Geralt the best midsummer festival he can, recreating holiday traditions using only what they have in their room. But will these traditions shed light on feelings they’ve both been trying to hide?

    Summary

    There was much that happened since leaving the mountain where Geralt lashed out at Jaskier.

    In the interim, Geralt found his Child Surprise and brought her back to Kaer Morhen, where she began training in both swordfighting and magic.

    Now back on the road, they encounter many surprises, but the biggest one is definitely finding a baby after a hunt, and having to care for it.

    When they are also unexpectedly reunited with Jaskier, Geralt finds himself having to decide how to handle his fraught relationship with the man he loves, all while taking care of Ciri and the baby.

    Summary

    So,” Jaskier begins, as casually as he can, “you are telling me, that in theory, if I were to be in love with someone — anyone — that person could well be in terrible danger?” 

    ---

    Of all terrible and ridiculous things that have threatened Geralt’s safety, Jaskier’d never thought that loving him might be what will get him killed.

    Summary

    “Well, that’s a separate issue entirely, isn’t it?” Jaskier says, clearly enthused by being taken on. “I’m opposed to marriage on principle. Would you like to know why?”

    “No,” says Geralt.

    “I’ll tell you why,” says Jaskier.

    Summary

    “I don’t dance,” Geralt growls when it becomes very clear from Jaskier’s staring, and impatiently curling fingers, that the bard isn’t going to take silence for an answer.

    “Hm. Of course not. I guess you wouldn’t,” Jaskier agrees like that’s the end of it. That’s never the end of it. Even as Jaskier pauses to watch the villagers, or perhaps the smoke drifting from the fire, Geralt waits for the inevitable addendum.

    “But allow me to raise this one point for your consideration.” There it is, accompanied by Jaskier’s expression scrunching in a way that Geralt is exasperated to realize he finds rather endearing. “Have you ever tried?”

    ---

    Geralt lets Jaskier talk him into sticking around for a village's midsummer festival. He assumes they're staying for Jaskier's benefit, but somewhere between the flower crowns and the bonfire, Geralt realizes it was a gift meant for him all along.
