    Summary

    Then he meets Jaskier, a local musician who is much more than he seems, and nothing in Geralt's life will ever be the same.

    Summary

    Jaskier is recovering from a few bad life choices. Geralt rescues mistreated farm animals and runs a ranch while parenting his daughter, Ciri. Yennifer decides to meddle a little.

    ***

    He cuts quite the figure, leaning ever so casually in the little kitchen. The hair at his temples is pulled back from his face, revealing more of that sharp, stubble-covered jaw. Of course Yennifer would know a handsome hermit. Honestly. He looks like he could wear armour and be right at home romping across a medieval countryside. Geralt isn’t Jaskier’s usual type, but he’s the definition of easy on the eyes.

    He may not be as well-muscled as his host, but he can do a few things! He has, in fact, successfully built IKEA furniture, by himself, and it never collapsed. “I will earn my stay, and who knows, maybe you’ll find me a capable farm hand,” he retorts, flicking his hair out of his face.

    One of Geralt’s eyebrows slowly raises, doubtful. “Hm,” is all he provides in response.

    Summary

    Geralt wakes up and immediately misses the bliss of being passed out. From blood loss, probably. He doesn't really remember, but his sword arm is completely numb and he has a headache that must have been caused by an angry god. Opening his eyes is not a priority.

    Yes, but waking up means you are alive which is the preferred state for a Witcher to be, Geralt.

     

    Or:
    Geralt loses his memory and needs to figure out how he acquired a bard of all things. Most importantly, he must figure out how to keep him.

    Summary

    It makes a certain kind of poetic sense, having a musician--who specializes in taking you somewhere else with his songs while you’re stuck here, in the present--playing outside of a bookshop--which specializes in selling pages bound together by the hundreds that transport you to other places, other times. This young man, this Jaskier, he’s bright, he’s cheerful, he’ll draw the eye, you won’t be able to be within a hundred feet of him and not be curious, and if there are curious people standing right by a shop of curious books and other curiosities, well, the idea makes a certain kind of business sense, too.

    Geralt gives a nod, short, sharp. “Just don’t block the door. And don’t make me regret this.”

    Jaskier claps his hands together and squeals in delight. “No, no, I won’t, I promise. You won’t! You won’t regret this.”

     

    Or: Bookshop owner Geralt inexplicably, in what must be a fit of temporary madness induced by the early hour and not enough caffeine, allows musician Jaskier to play outside his shop. Somewhere along the way, he starts to fall in love.
