    Summary

    Geralt's muscles heave backwards, flinging him down against the bed. He tries to struggle upwards but it feels like he’s been buried beneath a mountain. Every inch of him is pressed completely still. His eyes close, and he’s left in the dark with nothing but his racing heart for company. He’s not tired, he’s never been less tired. But the curse wants him to sleep, it seems. It’ll force him to lie here until he does. How much of his life will it start to control, now that he’s declared war against it? Now that he knows it’s lurking in his bones, now that it doesn’t have to be subtle?

    He swallows. Takes a long, deep breath, gathering every bit of courage he has to stop himself from slipping back into panic. He still has control over his lungs. He still has that.

    For now.

    (Or: Witchers don't retire. They stay on the Path until it kills them. They hunt monsters and they want nothing from life. This isn't exactly by choice.)

    Summary

    “I think so,” Jaskier says, “Geralt of Rivia, aren’t you?”

    The witcher does look surprised at that, his pale, thin mouth in a straight line.

    Geralt of Rivia is famous for being… more of a so-called abomination than any other witcher, or so people whisper. All of the others only went through the infamous Trial of Grasses and were revived once and then sent on their way, but him —

    People say that he took so well to the mutagens that they tried to enhance him further. Jaskier doesn’t know how much truth there is to the tales – if he was killed and revived more than once and if the alchemists of his school actually sew new limbs on him to make him better at his intended purpose -- but he knows that the man is given a wide berth by anyone who doesn’t need his services, barely gets paid and speaks little and is infamous for something that went down in Blaviken years ago.

    “What if I am?” the witcher asks.

     

    Or: in which everything is more or less the same except that all witchers die and get revived during the trials, Jaskier absolutely can't care less for that one notion and Geralt doesn't quite know what to make of that.

    “I happen to have an extremely delicate constitution. If I go for more than a couple of weeks without getting kissed, it, it unbalances my humours.”

    Summary

    “That’s a new one, isn’t it?” 

    Jaskier’s inhale rattles. “I wrote it months back, actually.”

     Geralt side-eyes him curiously. He is more than a little bit drunk, Jaskier thinks; there is a droplet of ale glistening on his upper lip that his witcher seems not to notice. “You wrote it while we were apart?”

     “Not everything is about you, my dear. But your jealousy is welcome- if unwarranted. I am already composing a new song about my darling muse.” The bard brushes the droplet away with light and exceedingly gentle fingers, smiling at the way the other man blinks in surprise, eyes dilating from the stimulation. “Go back to our room to sleep. You look tired, and we have a monster to hunt tomorrow.”

    Geralt frowns. “You’re not coming with me tomorrow. You're staying here. ‘S safe here.”

    Jaskier laughs. His witcher’s breath is hot against his cheek when the bard turns away. “Since when do I listen to a word you say?”

     

    Or; For all his enthrallment with his witcher, Jaskier's muse has always been heartbreak since the very beginning.
