    Summary

    “It’s a wolf, not a dog,” Geralt says flatly.

    “It’s hurt.”

    “It’s a wolf.”

    “I’m helping it,” Ciri says, ignoring him, and turns back to the wolf.

     

    But when is a wolf not a wolf? When it's everyone's favourite humble bard, of course!

    Summary

    Despite what his outward code of conduct would have you thinking, Jaskier knows when he is not wanted.

    He allows himself the exact amount of three days of wallowing in that small town before he packs his meager possessions and hits the road like nothing happened. In those three days he sings and dances for his food and drink, fucks the pretty barmaid and sleeps off the hangover before heading out in the morning of the fourth day. He travels alone for the first time in a while but it’s alright.

    Now, if only people would stop telling him that the Witcher asks about him - that'd be swell.

     

    And we have a lovely translation into Russian available here!

    Summary

    Somewhere along the line, Solo starts showering her with jewels.

    They're all exquisite, and extravagant, and very clearly stolen. Every mission, something new shows up; they work among the obscenely rich almost as a matter of course, and she suspects Solo's breaking their safes just to pass the time. She speculates, a little, what proportion of these gifts are newly stolen, and what's been hidden for years, waiting for the right time to surface. The Americans had recovered the art, the antiquities, but apparently they haven't got to everything. Gaby thinks, probably, they've barely scratched the surface of what Solo might have stolen all these years.

    Summary

    Over the long months spent with this rag-tag trio, Napoleon Solo has learned a few things. Gaby will only eat cake if it’s from Germany, and Illya will only drink (just a little) vodka if it’s from Russia. They both know some ballet (though Illya is quick to admit that she’s the greatest dancer he’s ever seen) and will invite Napoleon along to whatever French monstrosity they’re obsessed with this week. Honestly, they’re too kind.

    Napoleon has also learned that Illya Kuryakin is fucking adorable.

    Summary

    “Ah!” says the innkeeper, as the rowdy crowd finishes singing a song about Geralt’s heroics and segues seamlessly into a saccharine love ballad about the fairytale romance between the daughter of a baron and a lowly bard. “This song, it’s by the very same bard who sang those songs about you, Master Witcher! So in love, he is, with his beautiful lady.”

    “Oh, it’s so romantic,” sighs the barmaid dreamily. “That handsome bard, marrying a noble lady!”

    Geralt squints up at them doubtfully. “This…bard,” he says. “Dark hair, blue eyes, never shuts up?”

    “Aye,” the innkeeper says. “That’s the one.”

    Summary

    I brought a dead princess back to life through the power of song is the kind of thing that would have got an eyebrow raise even from the stone-faced Geralt of Rivia, so it's a good thing he and Geralt will probably never see each other again.

    (or: the one where Jaskier channels magic through his songs, and it almost never goes as expected.)

    “I could be yours, then.” He says, uncertainty so clearly defined in his voice it pains him to hear it, a kind of truce that feels like unconditional surrender. “If you’d like.”

    Summary

    It doesn’t go well. And it’s not just because there’s an explosion and Gaby sees a refrigerator fly out of the building’s third floor window. Illya stopped responding to his radio ten minutes ago. And for the past eight minutes she had been debating whether he was fine, maybe he had just dropped it in a fight, or if she should blow her cover to get him out.

    It’s the flying refrigerator that makes Gaby rush out of the car.

    -- In which Gaby knows what she wants, and she really wishes Illya was more expressive about what he wanted.

    Summary

    Waverly flips idly through her file, and she has half a mind to grab it from his hands. She’s never seen it, but she finds being so closely examined, so critically documented, very annoying. “No more quarrels with Kuryakin, then?” he asks. “Your early reports painted a less-than-flattering picture.”

    Gaby keeps her voice even when she replies, “It just took time.”

    Summary

    My no-kidding master's thesis, the tl;dr version of which can be summarized as "Twilight sucks, but not because teenage girls love it or because it contains sparkling vampires". Actual abstract: "Despite being generally received as wholesome entertainment, Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series implicitly supports rape culture by subtly reinforcing dangerous ideas about romance and relationships. In order to demonstrate the pervasive nature of these attitudes at work in the Twilight series, this paper first describes the concept itself and the crucial features of the beliefs that support it. Dracula—and, more importantly, the prevailing cultural perceptions about Stoker’s novel—functions as an important intertext for Twilight thanks to its status as one of the earliest popular vampire novels, and I use it to show how these attitudes can normalize certain assumptions about sexuality in a context generally assumed to involve a clear sexual interpretation. My examination of the books in Meyer’s modern vampire narrative takes this idea further, arguing that the same attitudes applied to Dracula provide an even more subtle representation of the mindsets that comprise and perpetuate rape culture."

    Summary

    Written for the prompt: Basically anything involving Illya picking Gaby up. Lifting her onto a table or holding her against the wall for makeouts, carrying her when she gets hurt, her climbing on his shoulders to get to something, etc. Bonus points for a five times fic or something else with multiple instances.

    Summary

    Her boredom sets in before they are even done with breakfast; the others sit around the table silently as they eat and leaf through a newspaper, a dossier, a small book. Gaby’s bare feet are propped up on the table, much to Waverly’s annoyance, and she spins her table knife between her fingers idly as she watches them.

    “I want to learn to fight,” she says. None of them look up, but Illya acknowledges her statement with a nearly imperceptible nod of his head.

    Summary

    The thing is, Helena is a rigidly focused kind of gal, iron rage forged into skilled precision. Dinah has also noticed it in the little things, like the way she frowns a bit when she's doing something as trivial as writing, her penmanship always neat and firm. That same tiny furrow of her brow is showing up again while she's methodically whisking some eggs in a bowl.

    Dinah finds it cute. Fucking sue her.

    Summary

    “Batman!” Hatter cries, in that way that he thinks is very nonsensical and ominous but ultimately just makes him sound like a tool, looking far too gleeful about having Bruce tied to a chair and gagged. “You have until midnight to surrender your cowl on live television, or billionaire Bruce Wayne drops a couple of hat sizes! What’s it to be, old boy?”

    “Ohhhhhh boy,” Harley murmurs.

     

    Where Harley and the girls have bonding time, there is very very little focus on the fight itself, and I lift a scene straight from The Nice Guys.
