    Summary

    "You'll change your mind one day," says the innkeep. "The road can't love you back."

    What a strange way to flatten something so beautiful, Jaskier thinks. What a small way to love.

    Or: When Jaskier is hit with a curse that prevents him from having sex, he's lucky that the first person he meets is a Witcher. It's even luckier that Jaskier is used to hitting the road, because Geralt isn't waiting up.

    Summary

    Soulbonds aren't supposed to be one-sided, but everyone knows witchers don't have soulbonds and Jaskier has learned to live with it, learned to be satisfied with being just Geralt's friend. But then the dragon hunt happens and they split up and the longer Jaskier is away from Geralt, the worse he starts to feel until it becomes unbearable. He decides to find someone to break the bond, but the only sorceress he knows who is strong enough to mess with destiny like that is Yennefer. Unfortunately for Jaskier, Yennefer appears to be wintering at Kaer Morhen with Geralt.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    OK, let’s be real, I have read this at least a half-dozen times because it is basically everything *my* soul longs for in a mismatched soulmate story. This is the best angst with a happy ending and I re-read it whenever I am feeling particularly low.

    Summary

    The cuckoo is a fine bird he sings as he flies,
    He brings us good tidings and tells us no lies.
    He sucks the sweet flowers to make his voice clear,
    And the more he cries cuckoo, the summer is nigh.

    Jaskier keeps secrets and then he keeps Singing. (And then he keeps watch over Ciri.)

    Brood parasitism + magic Jaskier = a real good time.

    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.

    I have a particular weakness for Regency AUs and this is amazing.

    Summary

    The way Jaskier sees it, his hobby of following a witcher around was always pretty likely to get him killed.

    The fact that it's happening now because the witcher in question doesn't love him, he thinks as he coughs up crumpled flowers, hardly makes a difference.
