    Summary

    Link is told his fate is to save the world, that the Goddess Hylia chose him a hundred years ago for this purpose.
    But the boy who entered her service died, and Link feels no obligation toward the divinity who let that happen, nor toward the ruined world around him. He'd much rather travel the world with the bokoblin friend he made, and try to see how many things he can eat before Calamity Ganon destroys them all.
    He never expected to start liking Hyrule and its inhabitants.

    Summary

    "Thrown out already?" Geralt asks, and sees the bard shaking his head from the corner of his eye.

    "Hardly! But a wise bard knows when to leave the audience wanting more."

    "I've never met one."

    "One what?"

    "A wise bard," he says, and glances over to see the bard's mouth flapping indignantly.

    "I -- am going to let that go, because you're right, where are my manners." He ducks in front of Geralt as they step onto solid ground, forcing him to halt, and gives him a bow, no less graceful for being quickly executed. "Jaskier, troubadour, poet -- and barker -- at your service."

    __________________________________

    Geralt assumes the bard will wander away of his own accord. Eventually.

    It takes a while to realize that's the last thing he wants.

    Summary

    Here, now, time holds no meaning for him. He exists only in this moment: an arrow let loose with careless fingers, hoping for a target. He cannot stop. Lungs heaving, thighs burning with strain, he cannot stop. Stop and he will be caught. Be caught and he might as well die. He has not fought this long and this hard to die now.

     

     

    After the mountain, Jaskier is captured and experimented on by a Mage of Nilfgaard. Somehow, he escapes. Now if only he could bring himself to believe it.

    or: five times plus one in which Jaskier finds out that Geralt is missing on good life experiences and promptly sees to fix it.
