    Summary

    When he gets back, two bowls of stew and a jug of wine balanced precariously in his hands courtesy of a grateful mother, Geralt is exactly where he left him. He’s fast asleep, chest slowly rising and falling beneath the blanket still draped over him.

    Roach glances over and nickers at him softly. “You and me, girl, we’ve got a hell of a job on our hands,” Jaskier whispers to her. “Don’t you worry, though. I’ll stick around for a bit. Help you out.”

    Roach flicks an ear at him, and then goes back to her hay. Jaskier heaves a sigh. “Sometimes I feel so unappreciated.”

    Summary

    Two months after Geralt breaks up with him, Jaskier runs into Yennefer at Coachella.

    “Oh fuck no,” she says, which he thinks is pretty fucking unfair, all things considered.

    Summary

    “You’re tall,” Geralt said slowly, brain struggling to catch up with this particular turn of events.

    “Always have been, dear Witcher, but thank you for finally noticing.”

    “You’re taller than me.” Geralt found himself rather unhappy about this fact. Granted, Jaskier only had an inch or two on him, but it was the principle of the thing.

    “I’m taller than most folk,” Jaskier admitted with a small shrug, grinning at Geralt’s raised eyebrow in response. “Very few people realise because everyone looks small standing next to a Witcher now don’t they?"


    After an unfortunate run in with a sorcerer, Geralt finds himself de-witchered.

    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.

    Summary

    Geralt feels his stomach turn. “Tell me what happened,” he growls. Because something happened in this room. Something bad.

    “You don’t know?” the mage says. “I suppose I’m not surprised. He was very keen that you didn’t find out. That was the only thing he insisted on, no marks.”

    Geralt glares at him. The mage looks back, unperturbed. “Don’t scowl at me like that, beast. Everything I did was agreed to.”

    Jaskier would do anything for Geralt.
