    Summary

    Geralt had a speech. He practiced it on Roach throughout his travels to Oxenfurt. He knew it by heart. “You’re my best friend. You’re important to me. I want you by my side year-round. I love you.” It’s all things he should have said this past spring, when he looked into Jaskier’s too-blue eyes and realized that he would do anything for this ridiculous, impossible, infuriating bard. But he hadn’t, and now it’s too late, because Jaskier has found himself a witcher more worthy of him than Geralt could ever be.

    After years of denying his feelings, Geralt finally works up the nerve to tell Jaskier how he feels, only to find his bard has found a new love— Geralt’s childhood best friend and first love, Eskel.

    Summary

    "You followed me?" Jaskier sounds inordinately pleased. "What have you learned?"

    "That you're something of a trollop." 

    Jaskier gets off the doorframe and steps into the hallway. The smell of sandalwood and sex is abruptly more intense, but it's not strictly unpleasant.

    "How indelicate of you," Jaskier says. "Though since you already think so, I'm inclined to let you take a few liberties."


    Geralt is supposed to assassinate a bard. He gets Involved instead.

    Summary

    "Take what you need, Witcher, and I'll do the same." Jaskier offers, waving a careless hand like he's suggesting stopping for lunch instead of falling into bed together.

    "Hm." Geralt nods once, slow. If all he can - all he is allowed to - give is physical pleasure, then he will accept it. Settle for it. He dares not to ask for more after how he treated Jaskier, his bard, his friend, his beloved.

     

    Or: The mutual pining fic where Geralt and Jaskier learn to say what they mean...eventually.

    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.
