    Summary

    “Kaer Morhen Wildlife Removal, Vesemir speaking.”

    “Ah, hello.” Jaskier laughs nervously before forcing cheer into his voice. “Happy Yule! Are you who I ought to call about a bear?”

    There’s a brief pause on the line. “You’ve seen a bear?”

    ***

    Visiting his family for Yule, Jaskier is in the kitchen and in over his head. Calling wildlife removal on a holiday is the last thing he wants to be doing… until a handsome white-haired stranger turns up at his door.

    Summary

    Soulbonds aren't supposed to be one-sided, but everyone knows witchers don't have soulbonds and Jaskier has learned to live with it, learned to be satisfied with being just Geralt's friend. But then the dragon hunt happens and they split up and the longer Jaskier is away from Geralt, the worse he starts to feel until it becomes unbearable. He decides to find someone to break the bond, but the only sorceress he knows who is strong enough to mess with destiny like that is Yennefer. Unfortunately for Jaskier, Yennefer appears to be wintering at Kaer Morhen with Geralt.

    Soulbond Jaskier / Geralt post 1x06

    Summary

    When Geralt tells him to get lost, Jaskier takes his aching heart, takes the memories of decades of friendship, and honestly tries to do as the witcher asked.

    ‘Tries’ very much being the operative word here.

    Because, in the absolutely most stunning role reversal ever, Geralt of Rivia – the White Wolf, witcher extraordinaire, protector of dragons and psychotic mages and innocents everywhere – then promptly starts following him around instead.

    (Another post-dragon-hunt fix-it, where Geralt regrets lashing out at Jaskier but just can’t seem to figure out how to actually apologize. So, he resolves to stick close to the bard until he does. Jaskier is just honestly confused.)
