    Summary

    Jaskier, heartbroken and banished from his Witcher's side, finds himself employed by the Fae Queen for seven years. In return for teaching music lessons and performing for guests of the Seelie Court, she promises the bard a longer life, knowledge of the Faerie Tongue, and an escape from the pain that haunts his shattered mortal heart.

    After seven years of searching the world over for his bard, Geralt stumbles upon a familiar face in a clearing. A man with cornflower blue eyes, wavy brown hair, slightly pointed ears, and absolutely no memory whatsoever of the White Wolf.

    (Based on a mix of several medieval ballads and Celtic folk-tales)

    Summary

    Jesse closes his eyes and he is not at home anymore.

    He is not alone.

    Jesse is in a large, open room with a high ceiling full of exposed wooden beams and what looks like straw mats spread out on the floor.  Some of the walls are solid, others are made of paper.  Words come to Jesse to unbidden like memories that aren’t his own.  Dojo.  Tatami.  Shoji.  The characters on the pillars are kanji.    

    Jesse is in Japan.  Parts of him, anyway.

    There are people lingering along the edges of the room.  There are two figures in the center, one of them older with his eyes flashing eerie red, black hair greying at his temples.  In front of him is a boy about Jesse’s age— seventeen.  Eighteen, maybe.  He’s kneeling with his eyes downcast, long hair pulled up into a messy bun, blood trickling from the corner of his mouth.  His clothes are hanging down off his left shoulder to expose an intricate tattoo, dragons and storm clouds and lightning in blue and grey and gold.  

    He’s beautiful like nothing Jesse has ever seen, a tangle of contradictions.  He looks delicate.

    He looks powerful.

    He’s breathtaking and he’s afraid and oh, fuck.

    He’s Jesse’s.

    Summary

    "Your spine shall crack, your shoulders bend,
    Your eyes shall change, your clothes shall rend.
    No longer will you be a Knight,
    But instead a wolf of wintry white;
    Until the one whose love is true
    Holds fast and keeps their arms 'round you:
    From snake to bear to lion strong
    We'll burn their arms with you erelong."

    The Morrigan cursed Geralt to live as a werewolf as punishment for spurning her advances many years ago. Only giving in to her or earning the love of his fated match can free him from the spell. After Lord Pankratz of Carterhaugh disappointed him by leaving the Law of Surprise unfulfilled, the disgraced knight is unsure that he'll ever find someone to save him. Except that Lord Pankratz's son has a strong will and a mind of his own; and he wants to meet the Big Bad White Wolf of Carterhaugh Forest.
