    Summary

    Geralt unties Roach from the post, and is about to leave when there’s the sound of an altercation behind him. He turns to see two guards dragging a third man between them. The man is wearing brightly coloured clothes and struggling, not seriously, more like he’s aware that in such circumstances struggling is expected. The guards approach Geralt and drop their charge to his knees in front of him.

    “Ow,” the prisoner says. Geralt recognises the bard from the tavern: a little more dishevelled, his face not improved by two black eyes and a split lip.

    “This one claims he’s a friend of yours,” one of the guards says. “Caught him sniffing around the treasury but he says he knows you. Says you’ll vouch for him.”

    Geralt looks down at the bard, who winks at him, then winces.

    How the witcher got his bard; or, the history of a relationship in ten rescues.

    Summary

    Jaskier’s eyes are sliding closed. He should leave. He should know, by now, not to outstay his welcome. But Geralt’s hand has come down to rest on his forehead, a thumb stroking into his hair. And just like always, he’s too weak to resist.

    Five times Jaskier didn’t have a choice about staying and one time he did.

    Summary

    “The only solution is a united front,” Yennefer says. When this just prompts blank expressions, she sighs. “Honestly, do I have to spell it out? I mean the two of you should get married.”

    Geralt stares at her. Jaskier’s mouth drops open. Tissaia says, thoughtfully, “that could actually work.”

    “No it couldn’t!” Jaskier says, loud and shrill.

    After Calanthe and Eist are killed, the fate of Cintra hangs in the balance. The only solution is an alliance between two men: the witcher Geralt of Rivia, bound to the princess by the Law of Surprise, and Cirilla’s uncle Julian, better known as Jaskier the bard.

    Summary

    At least Geralt knows, now. He knows he’s cursed. He knows what it does to living things - both animals and plants. It’s like he’s diseased. He stands, and there’s a clinging wheeze in his chest, which he does his best to ignore.

    After a contract hunting a mage goes awry, Geralt finds himself cursed with sickness, bubbling beneath his skin like a plague. It’s easy enough not to touch anyone - not to pass it on - until he meets Jaskier on the Path.

    Summary

    He swallows. “I’m… I’m one of Ciri’s guardians,” he says. It’s not technically a lie. He’s an adult, and Ciri lives with him and Geralt around half of the time. That must count for something. “Ciri lives with Ger… with Mr. Rivia and I. When she’s not with her mum, I mean.”

    Home alone, Jaskier receives a phone call from Ciri's school requesting a parent or guardian. Technically he's neither, but he's more than happy to tell a lie to make sure Ciri's alright. When he arrives at the school and realises Yen's been invited too, they're forced to put aside their animosity to form a united front against Ciri's awful headmaster... who's under the impression that Jaskier plays a far more important role in Ciri's life than he really does. Reposted as I'm splitting out an old collection of one-shots!
