    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.)

    Summary

    I read the first two Witcher books, and Geralt is a sensitive boi about the whole mutant thing. Multiple times he mutters to himself about how THoSe PeoPLE don't think he has FeElings.

    So I just really think he'd be charmed as hell by Netflix Jaskier. It would be big 'I've had him for a day and a half and if anything happened to him I'd kill everyone in this tavern and then myself' energy.

    So I imagined what would happen if Book Geralt met Netflix Jaskier that day at that tavern in Posada. (Spoiler he loves him.)

    Summary

    "I thought you'd be mad. I thought you'd yell and curse me out and hit me. You're just… quiet."

    "I was mad, incredibly so, for a while. I didn't deserve what you said to me and if you ever do anything like that again, I'll leave and this time I will stay gone," Jaskier says. "But if it's punishment you're looking for, then you won't get it from me. I know you, Geralt. You've probably already punished yourself more than enough."

    Geralt remains silent.

    Jaskier sighs and gets up. "I'm going to get some sleep," he says and then he bends down and Geralt feels a kiss being pressed to the top of his head. "Get some rest, too. You look like you need it as much as Ciri and I do, darling."

    ———

    On their way to Kaer Morhen, Geralt and Ciri come across Jaskier, who is also trying to evade Nilfgaard's soldiers. Geralt asks Jaskier to join them—so he can keep him safe and, hopefully, fix what he broke between them.

    Summary

    "Do you need anything? A bath, obviously, but anything else? Any wounds that need cleaning or stitching?" Jaskier asks, the words tumbling out of his mouth too fast. "I can help. Do you need me to get something?"

    "Jask."

    "Don't," Jaskier snaps and his shoulders fall. "Just… please, don't."

    "Don't what?" Geralt asks. He feels like he missed half of the conversation and he's starting to get frustrated, unsure about what is wrong with Jaskier and how to help him. "What the fuck is going on?"

    Jaskier swallows and licks his lips. "Just tell me what you need me to do. Please."

    ————

    Geralt comes across Jaskier in a small town by accident and asks him to travel with him again, hoping things will go back to the way they were before the fight. But Jaskier is different—he's more subdued and cautious, and entirely too agreeable. Geralt doesn't know what's wrong with him, but he's determined to fix it.

    Summary

    After taking out a nest of sirens for a contract, Geralt encounters the first male siren he's ever seen, and unfortunately, this siren piques his interest just a little too much. Really, taking the siren's deal is just a convenient excuse to finally know what it's like to fuck one of these winged horrors--the males aren't monstrous, anyway. Nobody has to know.
