    Summary

    "If life could give you one blessing-” He knows, whatever the next words are, he will not be prepared for them; he is not prepared even though he knows not what the next words are. Please-

    “-it would be me.” 

    The back of his eyelids burn dryly. 

    Geralt’s shaking hands are fisted in the front of the bard’s green doublet so tightly his fingers bruise his palms through the fabric. It quite effectively prevents the next lyric from being belted out. The tavern is dead silent and static other than the dozens of pounding heartbeats exacerbating his migraine as the witcher snarls, the acrid stench of fear wafting into his nose. “Where did you hear that song?”

    He needs to know, because there is a ghost. A ghost of Jaskier that never leaves. The brilliant blue of his doublet in the corner of the tavern bleaches Geralt’s retinas like drinking Cat in the middle of the day.

    "Where?"

     

     
    Or; Jaskier doesn't come back but Geralt doesn't stop waiting for him. A child surprise is acquired amidst the grieving and curses.

    Summary

    A continuation of the Farmer and the Lady.

    It is winter at Kaer Morhen and Lambert is stone cold shocked to see the man from the party next to Geralt and more shocked when he realizes that he had had sex with Geralt's bard. It all feels a bit awkward.

    Until he finds out that Jaskier had come to Kaer Morhen in hopes that their one night could be more nights. And had brought several very pretty gifts for Lambert to dress up in.

    Then it isn't awkward at all.

    Summary

    Yennefer of Vengerberg is one of the most powerful - and definitely one of the most feared - mages on the continent. She has slain armies, built impossible portals, and hauled Witchers back from the brink of death.

    The Witchers of Kaer Morhen, however, hold her in high esteem for quite a different sort of spell.

    Summary

    Ah yes, the melodrama of having a heart. Jaskier is well acquainted. He would like to grieve its pieces in peace without all the wars and feuds in the way but alas fate is not kind to pining bards who have little common sense.

    Summary

    As much as Geralt grunts at him, Jaskier knows that he secretly enjoys his singing - he’d caught one of Geralt’s rare smiles when Jaskier had sung a little ode to Roach when on the Path, and he’s seen the way Geralt relaxes at night when Jaskier hums a lullaby over the campfire.

    His music is everything to him - it’s an integral part of his soul, and it’s ingrained deep into his very being. Jaskier can’t bear to even think of the possibility of losing his singing, his music - who is he without it?

    (But Julian is no longer Jaskier - for four decades, he’d gotten a taste of what it would be like to be able to hold music in his soul, but this has been ripped from him by the Trials, and Julian is once again no more than a witcher.

    He had a beautiful voice, once. He was able to create music, once. But no longer. This is the only music he gets now - the song of his swords slashing through the air, the song of blood and violence and death.)
