    Summary

    Someone clears their throat and Eskel swivels his head to find a witcher leaning against the wall of the barn, holding the reins of a little bay gelding and watching Eskel with an amused expression. Eskel’s mouth goes dry.

    “I hear you have a griffin problem,” the witcher says. “But I see you have more fearsome beasts to contend with.”

    Lil Bleater bleats her agreement.

    When Eskel, a goat farmer living in Velen, puts out a contract for a witcher to deal with the griffin terrorizing his livestock, he’s not expecting Jaskier, a pretty witcher with mismatched eyes who likes to sing. When he takes the contract, Jaskier isn’t expecting the reclusive farmer who hires him to be a kind man who talks to his goats and is willing to let Jaskier stay the night. Neither of them expect the other to become a friend, and maybe something more.

    Summary

    With the rise of the social media app Sole Mate, everyone seems to be getting their happy ending. From his students and fellow faculty members at Redania University and down to his family, it feels like life is mocking Jaskier. He doesn't need a bloody app to meet his soulmate because he already met him. Geralt Rivia.

    And he doesn't want anything to do with Jaskier.

    Following a nervous confession and rough confrontation, Jaskier does his best to navigate through life knowing his soulmate doesn't want him. He has his lovely students in his Creative Writing class. He has his friends and his cat and his music. He doesn't need Geralt to complete him or to make him happy. Jaskier is perfectly fine on his own, ta very much.

    But alas, that's not what destiny has planned for him.

    Summary

    “I’m the star! The one that fell from the sky just now? Or are you so dense that you can’t follow the trail of smoke? Honestly.”
    Geralt has heard of stories about falling stars making their way to earth. At the time, it sounded like a fairytale. Standing in front of Jaskier now, he’s still pretty firmly standing in that camp. “Bullshit.”
    “Oh?” Jaskier begins to glow. Literally glow. His shine intensifies until Geralt must close his eyes and look away. “Is this proof enough for you? Or should I do something even more spectacular?”

    -
    Hellbent on shaping the newest constellation, Jaskier the star follows Geralt across the continent looking for the best story.

    Summary

    After a short eternity, Geralt finally stumbles out of the ruins - hurt but alive - and Jaskier's eyes fill with grateful tears.

    The witcher has a tired but smug-looking Yennefer on his arm, snuggled into his side and supporting him as much as he supports her. She's closer than Jaskier ever got, and they have the look of sudden, invincible, fated love about them. Jaskier's treacherous mind begins composing their ballad even as his bruised little heart shrivels up inside his chest and dies a quiet, bittersweet death.

    Next to him, Chireadan sees it too and makes a small noise, sounding just as devastated as Jaskier feels.
