    Summary

    Stardust AU

    Vernon Roche makes a promise to a beautiful girl that he will help her - even if Triss doesn't want him the way he wants her, he comes up with a plan to keep unwanted suitors off her back. His crazy plan? They can become betrothed before he goes to report for duty. His insane plan? To prove his commitment to this plan, he vows to cross The Wall to find a fallen star as a symbol of his commitment.

    He expected to find a hunk of shiny rock. Instead, he meets an angry and injured star, several power-hungry sorceresses, a collection of Witchers and their bard, a few members of the Royal Family, and his mother.

    He does this all while falling in love and finding a place where he belongs - as long as vengeful princes and wicked sorceresses don't take it all away before he can realize he has it.

    Summary

    "I have never let any dh'oine touch me like that", he spoke honestly, letting the words hang between them for a while. "Don't think I feel great about the fact that it's you I am losing my dignity in front of."

    "But do you trust me not to use it against you?" Vernon asked. The tension in the air appeared once again and waiting for Iorveth's answer seemed to be stretching forever.

    The elf pulled back entirely, grabbing one of the tree branches and clumsily standing up, leaving Roche on the ground.

    "No", he admitted, but right after that he hesitantly added: "But I am getting there."

     

    or the events taking place after the end of The Witcher 2: Roche and Iorveth's paths cross again, and it turns out that the commander of the Blue Stripes is the only person who can save his greatest enemy's life.

    Summary

    Vernon Roche knew he wouldn’t fall under the conventional definition of smart. He wasn’t dumb - he learned to read and write when he was a child, had a head for numbers, could organize tactical advances in his sleep, and learned Hen Llinge in his late thirties; but sometimes he made monumentally stupid decisions. 

    Case in point: agreeing to have his mother spend the winter in Toussiant with him. Now, normally he wouldn’t think twice about airing out the guest room and covering the mattress with clean linens which is why he found himself regretting every decision he had made in the last five years that led to what would inevitably be his demise. 

    Well, not every decision, but most of them.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    he found himself thrown over his elf’s shoulder like he weighed nothing. “This is equal parts undignified and incredibly sexy.”
