    Summary

    He looked up, and a man stood before him. Geralt hadn't heard him approach. That was the first sign there was something odd.

    The second was the faint but still noxious smell of poison that clung to his fingers, just strong enough to make out over the spiced perfume he wore. And under all of that was a richer smell, as familiar as Geralt's own scent, because it was Geralt's own. Or a witcher's, at least.

    Summary

    "Jaskier, how drunk are you?" he asks, and Jaskier breathes a laugh into Geralt's shoulder.

    "I am excellently drunk, Geralt, I've done a very good job of it. I am as drunk as a Skelligen skunk."

    "There are no skunks on Skellige."

    "I am as drunk as a Skelligen monk, then."

    Which is fairly drunk, all things considered; Skelligens don't fuck around about that sort of thing.


    Geralt has been foolish about many things in his long life, and every time to his detriment; he'll not make the mistake of deluding himself that someone like Jaskier, with all the world open to him and everything to offer in return, would ever really choose Geralt's company in that way.

    (Geralt may not be a reliable narrator of his own life.)

    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

    "You'll change your mind one day," says the innkeep. "The road can't love you back."

    What a strange way to flatten something so beautiful, Jaskier thinks. What a small way to love.

    Or: When Jaskier is hit with a curse that prevents him from having sex, he's lucky that the first person he meets is a Witcher. It's even luckier that Jaskier is used to hitting the road, because Geralt isn't waiting up.

    Just months after the official dissolution of the USSR, underground boxer Otabek Altin comes to the newly renamed St. Petersburg to make his fortune, or at least enough money to send back to his family in Almaty. He finds something a little different.

    Summary

    There are a lot of things people don’t know about Lan Xichen. At least half of them, in Jin Guangyao’s estimation, hide in plain sight. He, as the focus of Lan Xichen’s sole and long-standing regard, is one of them. Zewu-jun’s honest opinions of his fellow gentry are another.

    Summary

    Otabek drops his hands into his lap and takes a breath. He rubs his forehead, leaving a smear of dirt, but at least the frown is gone when he next looks at Yuri. "You're a lot of work, Yuri Plisetsky."

    Yuri exercises some pretty flawed logic and alienates everyone just because he's horny for his best friend.

    Summary

    Maybe, Otabek thought as he watched Yuri from the boards—watched the ease with which Yuri danced into some form wholly other than what Otabek knew him to be. Firebird: Dawn-wrent, radiant, blazing molten wings robbing evil of its soul. Never could Otabek inhabit something so otherworldly and unforged. Couldn’t even imagine it on his own.

    Summary

    Sakusa Kiyoomi considers his fear. And then, he considers another's.

    “The germ thing,” Atsumu says, looking as if he is intensely trying not to care. Eloquent as always. And unexpected, again. An inconvenient turn of events, if the habit persists. Adjustments will have to be made. Reaction times calibrated. Kiyoomi steps back again, what he hopes is an unnoticeable amount.

    “The germ thing,” Kiyoomi repeats. Atsumu—headstrong, think-never Atsumu—hesitates. Kiyoomi briefly entertains the thought that he is trapped in a lucid dream.

    Summary

    “Not much longer now,” Oikawa breathes beside him, unaware. From high above them, the sun draws a golden dayglow out of the deep brown of his eyes, trained on the path ahead. They have only ever known to look forward, after all, to stay fixed on summits, always just out of reach.

    Hajime understands the sentiment. “Yeah,” he agrees, his own gaze held on Oikawa.

     

    On the polysemic nature of plant seeds, Greek mythology, and finish lines.

    Summary

    A blush crawled over the back of Tooru's neck as he remembered how it had felt to look up and see Iwaizumi standing at the microphone, hastily tucking in his shirt at a severe look from a teacher. Tooru hadn't seen him in a long time, but back when Iwaizumi was still a third year in Kitagawa Daiichi, Tooru would sometimes sneak into the gym to watch volleyball practices. Iwaizumi had been good back then; Tooru would be willing to bet he was amazing now.

    Tooru has always looked up to third year Iwaizumi Hajime; he's handsome, popular, not to mention captain of the volleyball team. But Tooru's just a first year, and a nerd to boot. Why would someone like Iwaizumi ever be interested in him?

    Summary

    “Such a nice, beautiful sound,” the fae crooned. “If only he were this way always.”

    Julian’s mother stood up. She claimed she was prepared to stop the fae, to protect her baby, but in Julian’s darkest moments he doubted this part of the story. His mother loved him, of that he had no doubt, but she had been young and weary, and even years later, she couldn’t quite get the twinge of exhaustion out of her eyes when she recalled Julian’s infancy. Even if she had been keen on protecting him, the fae was too close, too fast, too set on his plan.

    “A gift, for the new mother,” the fae continued. He leaned a hand in to stroke Julian’s cheek. “I give you the gift of obedience.”

    As a baby, Jaskier was visited by a fae, who gifted Jaskier's mother with Jaskier's obedience. As Jaskier grew older, the "gift" became more of a curse.
