    Summary

    Getting stuck in Kaedwen in winter had never been on Jaskier's plan. It's cold, they don't appreciate his music and nobody likes their national beverage anyway. The only redeeming thing Kaedwen has is Kaer Morhen, so Jaskier does what any reasonable bard would do in this situation: he decides to charm his way into Kaer Morhen to hibernate with Geralt and the other witchers. If nothing it will be an experience no human has ever had, fuel for songs and poems for years to come, while finally teaching him a thing or two about witchers he's just dying to know.

    Curiosity tended to kill the cat, but Jasker had always seen himself as more of a bird anyway.

    Summary

    "What are you smiling at?" Jaskier asks, looking back over his shoulder, his face light, as if he's prepared to join in the joke.

    "I'm not," Geralt says, and Jaskier scoffs, because they both know Geralt can be a bald-faced liar.

    Or:

    Five things every witcher relies on, and one that's just for Geralt.

    Summary

    It’s a tradition the three of them hold. Whenever one of them finds a book of the right kind, he brings it back to Kaer Morhen to share with the others. They keep the books on a shelf in the library that they inexpertly installed themselves.

    Eskel drags a chair up to form their little semicircle in front of the library fire. Lambert opens the first bottle of krupnikas.

    ‘Well?’ Lambert says. ‘Either of you find a good one this year?’

    ‘Feast your eyes, lads,’ says Eskel with relish, ‘on this.’

    He waves an octavo at them.

    ‘Picked it up in Redania,’ he says. ‘Meant to be very spicy.’

    He waggles his eyebrows, and Geralt grins.

    Jaskier is a romance novelist, and Geralt finds out.

    Summary

    “How did you manage,” asked Geralt, with infinite patience and only a desire to know the facts, and not at all a little meanhearted glee, “to insult a sorcerer while his tongue was down your throat?”

    Don’t make me recount the entire sordid affair, Geralt,” said Jaskier, with a surprising note of desperation breaking through his gruff monotone. “I’m already having a rather shit day and all I’ve done so far is wake up.”

    “In my body,” said Geralt.

    “Yes,” said Jaskier, with the insolent cadence that was unmistakably Jaskier’s, but in Geralt’s voice, emerging from Geralt’s face and frame.

    “And I’ve got yours,” said Geralt, from Jaskier’s.

    Summary

    Primary Universe: A time-travelling Sansa Stark directs her own game of thrones, encouraging Robb to secede from the Seven Kingdoms far earlier, and marrying Theon for love, gaining a crown of her own. Meanwhile, a whole range of family shenanigans go down at the Dreadfort (all Bolton fics are in chronological order here).

    Secondary Universe: Ramsay Bolton strays into the Primary Universe, and has to confront his past choices. Given the chance to be the Northern crown's most unlikely saviour, he weighs up his needs.

    Tertiary Universe: Despite being the only human in a family of vampires, Jon Snow has come of age in very comfortable circumstances. He's not quite equipped to deal with a post-torture Theon Greyjoy from the Secondary Universe, who is quite convinced Jon's world is a trauma-induced dream.
    (Crossover with Castlevania. Only fics which relate to the Secondary Universe will be added here, the rest of the Tertiary verse fics can be found here)

    Quaternary Universe: where I scream into the void and hope something answers back.
