    Summary

    It reeked of slaughter, both fresh and old, as soon as he went through the portal and into enemy territory.

    Soldiers in black armour immediately tried to take him down so he started Singing, reaching for the dormant power deep within him.

    Summary

    They say of the seal-maidens that they are beautiful beyond compare, that any man might fall in love and take one to wife. The songs say, to keep a selkie bound to hearth and home and away from the sea, you must find them on a full moon, when they have shed their sealskin cloaks, and hide it as deeply as you can.
    The songs also say, of course, that a selkie without the sea is as like to live as a human without a heart, and that without their skins they will pine away for want of the ocean.
    Not many seem to care.

    Summary

    “I have a contract for you,” Jaskier began, noting the way the witcher’s eyes lit up at the mention. “I’d like to hire you as a bodyguard. I'm traveling to Novigrad for the midsummer festival, and the road is dangerous."

    Novigrad—the Free City. If he could make it across city limits, he would be free to find his own destiny. The king would hold no sway over him there.

    When Jaskier sneaks out of the tower he's been locked in his whole life, he doesn't expect to fall in love with the witcher he comes across.

    Summary

    The vicious, hateful, anti-witcher pamphlet Monstrum was used to whip up townsfolk to attack Kaer Morhen. These people, along with several mages, slaughtered almost every witcher who lived and trained there. (This is book/videogame canon)

    But.

    What if.

    Jaskier is a royal scribe at that time. It’s his first day as a scribe and his first assignment is to copy Monstrum over and over again.

    He doesn’t know what a witcher is, but it still doesn’t sit right with him.

    But what can one simple scribe do?

    But just before the pamphlets are to be distributed, he comes upon a witcher. A witcher with a goat, who needs his help.

    Well, as you might imagine, this changes everything.
