    Summary

    “Nilfgaard,” Jaskier said finally after what felt like an eternity. “Nilfgaard is going to start a war,” he said, the meaning of Borch’s words slowly becoming more and more clear in his mind. “They’re going to head for Cintra.”

    The dragon frowned. “Why would that affect you?”

    “There is someone there who has become very precious to me and whose fate also happens to be tied to the witcher. If she’s in danger… then so will he,” Jaskier said as he stood up, the restless energy trying to suffocate him. “You said something about time… time is slipping… I am running out of time - but to do what?” He rounded on the Dragon, his eyes wild. “What did you see? What do I need to do?”
    ----

    OR
    It may have taken him 20 years, but Jaskier knows where he is not wanted. Now, armed with Borch's prophecy, Jaskier is faced with a choice; either walk away entirely and continue living his placid human life or return home, shed the human façade, retake his duties, protect Cirilla and likely run into the Wticher whose one request was for Jaskier to never cross his path again.

    He knows what the right choice is. What he doesn't know, however, is how much of him will be left by the time the dust settles.

    Summary

    Jaskier likes to think of his life beginning at Oxenfurt. It’s easier that way--easier to think he is simply a human bard. He can let the memories of his parents and court and draconic life fade into the past where it belongs. And honestly, was his life really him living before studying music? What’s a bard without a song or a poet without words?
    Yes, things are simpler this way...most of the time.

    Summary

    Jaskier doesn’t actually know how much time has passed since the black-cloaked Nilfgaardians grab him after a performance in a shitty tavern in the backcountry of northern Kaedwen. He’d assumed--foolishly, apparently--that he was far enough north that any Nilfgaardian soldiers would be few and far between, likely just scouts or even deserters. It would have been hard to actually get any further north--the little backwater town where he’d been singing was just a day from the mountains. Anymore travel, and he’d find himself skirting the Trail up to Kaer Morhen, the Warlord’s Keep, and, well. He’s brazen, but not that brazen.

    (or: a wandering bard bites off more than he can chew with the political ballads, accidentally makes friends with a princess in exile, and finds the Warlord of the North in his debt.)
