    Summary

    “Five months, Lambert. How - ?” Eskel rubbed a hand over the right side of his face. He still wasn’t quite over what he was seeing. Lambert. The Lambert. A man that cursed Gardis’ very name for claiming him as a child surprise; resented his life on the Path; resented everything about being a Witcher, including the lack of choice and free will. Had seen the devastation wrought on two of his brothers for doing the very same. That man had claimed the Law of Surprise in lieu of payment, thus condemning another living being to destiny’s clutches. It didn’t ring true.

    “I have the shittest luck,” Lambert looked back down at Cal, who beamed right back up at him. “And I was drunk.”

    Or: Lambert invokes the Law of Surprise after a bender and lands more than he bargained for.

    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.

    Summary

    Those were the kind of Omegas Geralt was used to—strong, tough, took no bullshit, underestimate them at your peril—and then, he met Jaskier. Soft and fragrant, eyes like a clear blue sky, laugh like silver bells. He was beautiful and part of Geralt had never wanted anyone more.

    Summary

    When he is four, Jaskier escapes out his window to avoid a boring family dinner where his cousin was getting betrothed to someone. He just wanted to hear the frogs. Frogs sound neat.

    That daring escape, and the rescue that it required changed his whole fate, because he was the one who ended up betrothed to a witcher - the plan to marry when he was 20. He didn't really care he got to hear the frogs croak, what did he care about this Geralt of Rivia?

    As he grows up though, he ends up caring a great deal.

    Scenes from Jaskier's life of meeting every witcher but his betrothed, until one day in a shitty tavern, he finally meets Geralt.
