    Summary

    "Stop with this noble hero act," Ben rolled his eyes. "You're not here to save her from some terrible end, or from the others, to keep the world spinning for the good of humanity."

    Flinching back Klaus held tighter to his sleeping sister. But his other arm, pressed against the window of the bus, moved to hide himself. He curled a hand underneath his belly button, gnawing at his bottom lip. "So? Isn't my reason good enough?" he demanded softly.

    "I never said it wasn't a good reason."

    Summary

    Slowly, Nicky says: “Who has Joe?” 

    Nonsensically, Booker looks to Nile. Her brows furrow as Nicky and Andy follow his gaze. Nile holds her hands up as if to deny it, but then alarm takes refusal’s place. “Oh my God.” Her hands clasp around her mouth. So. She had seen something. 

    “Nile?” Andy asks. It isn’t gentle. It’s commanding. Firm. She wants an answer. Booker wishes there’s a better answer to give her. 

    “It’s...is it?” Nile asks Booker, and he finds himself the center of attention once more. 

    “Quynh,” he says. “Quynh took Joe. Put him in a...a metal coffin. I don’t know where she went.” Nicky’s fingers go tight around Booker’s shoulder and knee. All the color has drained from his face. All his concern and worry replaced with frightening blankness. 

    Then, Nicky stands. He walks out the door. And he doesn't look back.

    Summary

    A heavy-handed Destiny deems Geralt of Rivia slow on the uptake & Ciri unclaimed as a result. However, the White Wolf wasn’t the only Witcher who claimed Law of Surprise in Cintra. By the time Jaskier follows the tugging of his heart back to the kingdom, Ciri is eagerly awaiting both of her fathers.

    •••••••••••••••

    "Papa!" The little girl's voice was heightened, almost breathless in her excitement. She wriggled free of Calanthe's arms and raced towards Jaskier. He braced himself as the toddler slammed into his legs, wrapping them tight before stepping back and reaching her arms up to him. "Papa, up," she demanded. "Up!"

    Jaskier obeyed without thinking, hoisting Princess Cirilla into his arms and smiling when she lightly smacked his cheeks with open palms "Papa!"

    "I'm sorry?" Jaskier told her directly. "I don't understand."

    Summary

    ***SPOILERS FOR SEASON TWO***

    “Well,” he began. “Then how come I know everything about you?”

    “Like what?” Dave challenged.

    “Like, I know your favorite food is a plain hamburger with two pickles!”

    “Everyone likes a hamburger.”

    "Oh, come on," Klaus continued. "I know your favorite song is The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance, and your favorite book is Dune!"

    Klaus knew everything there was to know about Dave--after all, they'd spent ten months getting to know each other.

    These are the moments they shared to create those memories.

    Summary

    Ciri is forced to go on the run when Nilfgaard catches up with her and Geralt. When she is claimed by another witcher via the Law of Surprise, she thinks destiny must be playing a cruel joke on her. She is still mourning Geralt, after all. How dare another try to replace him?

    (Meanwhile, Juniper—or Jaskier, as he was once known—is kicking himself for making the exact same mistake that Geralt made all those years ago. But maybe a child surprise is exactly what he needs to help him move on from his lost humanity. And the girl seems to be dealing with her own brand of grief. Perhaps he can help her.)
