    Summary

    He may not like Yennefer, but he doesn’t want to be more of a burden than he’s been already. If he can convince them that he’s good, that he’s great, that he’s ready to take on the world once more, then he can be out of their hair. He’s just an imposition on the perfect little family they’ve got going on, and no matter how he feels he’s not going to homewreck them. Not when there’s a young princess involved.

    Title from the poem The Second Coming, by William Butler Yeats

    Summary

    It is about a week and half into Jon's posting on the U.S.S. Magnus that a mission goes badly enough for him that he finally meets the medical hologram in the medbay. Jon has never been introduced to a sentient hologram before, but Martin seems far more lifelike and easy to talk to than some of his crewmembers. Unfortunately, (or perhaps fortunately, given that he actually likes seeing Martin) several of his away missions seem to end in injury. He and Martin grow fairly close. Close enough that Jon finds his thoughts wandering to the warm touch of Martin's hands in his and fixating on the brightness of Martin's smile.

    A run in with a Lonely ship may serve to change that.

    Summary

    "For a while, Jaskier doesn’t know he’s cursed. It feels like free will, going back down that mountain, just as dangerous down as the way up, and alone this time, too. The descent is fast, maybe even reckless, but Jaskier’s feeling numb and out-of-sorts anyways, Geralt’s words simmering in his mind, and at the time it doesn’t feel like he’s being pulled on by anything but his own desire to get away."

    Based off a post that Geralt's words on the mountain are granted by the djinn.

    Summary

    Geralt's eyes fixed on him. They were glittering and dark, pupils dilated despite the bright sunlight; they seemed to stand out from his face, which was even paler than usual, bar the hectic red flush high on his cheekbones.

    If it had been any other person, Jaskier would have known what to assume, but... "Are you sick?"
