    Summary

    “I hear you,” Geralt murmured, even though his ears were ringing. The distance between them, only a few yards, was an ocean. Jaskier held his traveling bag in his arms and his lute was strapped over his shoulder. He looked like a man with one foot already out the door.

    ~*~

    A confession, a realization, longing, and hope.

    Summary

    The life Julian always wanted isn't the one he's living, and he's going to have to accept that. He's done plenty well for himself as one of the youngest-ever professors at Oxenfurt Academy. He has friends, even if they've all moved away. A family he loves, even if he doesn't keep in touch. And if the crowds are underwhelmed when he dresses up and calls himself the bard Jaskier, it's only because that life wasn't meant to be his.

    There's no reason for him to doubt this--at least not until his future at the Academy is suddenly up in the air, students start dying in the night, and the Butcher of Blaviken comes to town.

    Summary

    After reuniting on the path after the infamous dragon hunt, Geralt believes that all between him and Jaskier are well. Jaskier has given him no inclination to believe otherwise. But after being summoned home to Lettenhove in the aftermath of a family death, Geralt begins to notice the cracks forming in his carefully constructed facade. Has Geralt simply never noticed or has been buried so deep in his self-loathing that he never allowed himself to see the ever cheerful Jaskier has some demons of his own?

    Summary

    “Thank you,” he murmurs to Geralt as they sit together on his couch, both nursing hot toddies (Geralt’s praise for Jaskier’s heavy pour was so effusive it made him blush like he hasn’t since he was a teenager and Victoria Stael had him by the wrist at a Grammys afterparty) and watching the girls play with the LEGO set Jaskier got Essi for Chanukah. It’s for the gifts but it’s also for everything else.

    “The wine is really more for me than for you, Jas,” Geralt smirks, but he softens quickly, his gaze warm, nudging Jaskier with his shoulder, understanding what Jaskier was trying to say without needing to be told. “But no problem.”

    That’s what Jaskier likes about Geralt. With him, some things can be left unsaid. Jaskier never thought he’d take such comfort in silence, wordsmith that he is and has always been, but with Geralt, he is learning how to sit with the quiet, how to speak without sound.

    Summary

    ‘We may have won the battle, but I fear the war with winter is just beginning.’

     

     

    The aftermath of war is no laughing matter. Those who died must be honoured, those who are wounded must be healed, and those who remain need food and clothing, peace and sanctuary. With Thorin's life hanging in the balance, it is up to Bilbo and the rest of the Company to rule the rag-tag remnants of Erebor in his place.

    Then there is the matter of the gold...

    Can Bilbo save both king and kingdom, or is Erebor destined to fall deeper into ruin?
