    Summary

    “Because, I—I can’t help it,” Jaskier said and even over the rushing of the wind, Geralt could hear his heartbeat quicken. “I love you, Geralt. I have for so, so long. Thought you should know.”

    Geralt’s eyes widened. He turned back—shock beating out his anger. He met Jaskier’s gaze and it hurt to see the tears streaming down his face. For a moment, Geralt thought he must have heard wrong. How could Jaskier love him? How could he say that right after Geralt told him he wanted to be rid of him? Too startled to say anything, silence hung heavy between them. Only the sound of rushing wind and his own pounding heart filled Geralt’s ears.

     

    When Geralt tells Jaskier he wants nothing more than to be rid of him, he's startled when Jaskier confesses that he has loved him for years. Unable to say anything back, Geralt thinks about that moment over and over again until he and Ciri run into Jaskier again in Ard Carraigh. Either he needs to finally voice thoughts he's kept hidden for years or risk losing Jaskier forever.

    Summary

    Two years after a car wreck cost him all of his memories, Julian had settled into his new-not-new life and was content enough. A boyfriend of five years, his doctor, and his job at the Blue Mountain Nature Center -a lovely little place just outside of the city and not far from the Witcher's Keep- made for a nice life. Or at least a more or less decent one. Sure he felt like things were missing but, as Valdo and Dr. S said, of course he felt like that, he had amnesia. A little excitement every now and again helped. Like the new visitor at the Center. And this other new visitor. This one too. A little excitement every now and again helped. And so did getting to pretend that he was important enough for it to be purposeful when these Witchers and Witches seemed to seek him out to chat.

    Meanwhile, in the nearly three years since Jaskier's kidnapping and presumed murder, the Kaer Morhen family had had to accept that the musician's fate would be an ever painful mystery they couldn't get answers to. And a question about taking care of Lil' Bleater didn't seem like the type of thing that would change that.

    Summary

    Geralt realizes, quite suddenly, that Jaskier is aging. He desperately asks the mages for any possible solution, something that could make Jaskier not so terribly mortal, and he finds his answer in an old elven ritual. Geralt decides to use this on Jaskier and himself. He can share his slow aging with Jaskier, and he won’t have to lose the person who, aside from Ciri, might be most important to him.

    He just has to make sure that Jaskier doesn’t figure out that they are, technically, getting married.

    Summary

    The post is yours, if you’re still interested. Yennefer said you amused her and Ciri wouldn’t shut up about you, so I guess I’ve no choice. 
     
    -Sir Geralt of Rivia

    Jaskier is a tutor that can't hold down a job. Sir Geralt of Rivia is a scandalous gentleman getting his hands dirty for the good of the Empire with a literal witch of an ex-wife living in his North Tower and an unruly, mysteriously-acquired daughter who has run off the previous five governesses. Billowing shirts? Suffering a fever after sprinting across the rain-soaked moors? Hastily unfastened breeches in the eerie library? Hunting parties that end in mayhem? It's all here.

    Summary

    It becomes a habit to keep an eye on the front door every Wednesday. Jaskier told him after the second week that he tries to grab the flowers on his lunch break. It’s how he found the shop in the first place.

    “I tutor a kid near here,” he tells Eskel as he watches the florist trim the thorns off some David Austen roses. “He’s a menace, but his mom wants him to learn piano and is willing to pay for all the grey hairs I’m getting.”

    “You play piano?”

    “And a few other instruments. My favorite is the lute.”

    Eskel grins a little. “A lute? Do you moonlight as a bard too?”
