    Summary

    He wasn't just useless; he was a liability. He was half-crazy, on medication for a whole list of mental illnesses, and physically crippled. He walked with a cane carved from old wood and sources referred to his left eye as "unreliable." Poor, fragile little human. They left a rabbit on his doorstep, just to make sure he got the message; he wasn't necessary in this game. He was boring. Oh he sounded interesting at first: humans who ran with wolves always did. But he was just another stubborn fool, and a broken one at that.

    Summary

    “So what do you do during winter?” Jaskier asks with a curious tilt of his head after they set up camp for the night. “I mean, there’s only so much you can do to pass the time there, no? Do you build snowmen? Or, in your case, snow witchers? Do you even have a witcher’s version of a snowball fight?”

    “We maintain the keep, fix what needs fixing,” Geralt answers as he pulls the hide of the first rabbit off its rear. “We eat, get drunk, and play Gwent. We sleep a lot, too. Don’t get much of that on The Path.”

    Jaskier’s heart aches at that casual admission. He’s more than aware that Geralt is used to the little comforts walking The Path entails, which is why Jaskier goes and above and beyond to help and provide as much as he can for his witcher.

    Summary

    After another moment of them staring each other down, he indulges her. "What's the job?" 

    Her eyes dart around, like she's looking for possible eavesdroppers before she goes on in an even lower voice. "There's a monster under the bed," she whispers, like she's sharing a secret. 

    Geralt blinks—that's not what he was expecting at all. His brow furrows. "Under the inn bed?" 

    She nods, eyes still wide. "He talks to me when I have nightmares. Says he eats them and then gives me good dreams. I don't remember my dreams, so I don't know if he's really telling the truth. His teeth are big. I think he just says he eats dreams because I catch him before he can eat me."

    Summary

    There's a routine that Geralt has established for decades, and it’s a routine only for him and Roach. So the thought of adding another variable to the equation is both baffling and unsettling. Who would willingly seek the company of a witcher, anyway?

    Destiny has not been kind to him and Geralt has already forgotten what it’s like to have a friend, to be a friend. If it will come knocking on his door, he wouldn’t know the first thing to do or say.

    So nothing prepared Geralt for Jaskier.

    Summary

    „I've heard rumors that the famous bard and poet Dandelion visited the Outskirts.
    I met Dandelion, who has supposedly always been my best friend. From what I've heard, Dandelion is an indefatigable windbag, a buffoon, and a wastrel. He is also a womanizer with an incredible talent for getting into trouble. At the same time, Dandelion is a truly talented artist, despite his tendency to wander the countryside and eke out a living through occasional performances.“
    - Geralts Journal Entry in Witcher 1

    I read this part of the entry and it sounded eerily like Geralt had never really met Jaskier before. So here is a little fic exploring that idea. After the war is over Geralt becomes curious about the bard who is supposedly his best friend and goes to look for the one who turned him from the Butcher into the White Wolf.
