    Summary

    “And what do you want in return?  Your freedom? Your safety?”

    Jaskier didn’t flinch from her scorn and Geralt could see his knuckles go white with the force of his grip around the small vial.  “Save him.”

    The mage stared at him for a beat before letting out a burst of laughter that echoed off the wall like the flutter of vultures wings.  “All this trouble for the Witcher?” she asked incredulously, “Tell me, boy, do you really think he would do the same for you? That he cares at all what happens to the bard who follows after him like a lost puppy?”  She stepped forward, confident as a soldier preparing his death blow. “Oh, I know who you are, bard. I watched you trailing after the Witcher, eager for every scrap of affection or interest he’ll toss your way. I’ve seen the way you look at him.”

    Jaskier was breathing heavily now, jaw clenched tight enough that Geralt could see the muscles fluttering with effort.

    “Were you hoping this ill-conceived rescue mission would be enough to make him finally notice you?” she murmured with a mocking smile, “Poor little bard--always singing of love but never truly experiencing it.”

    Summary

    ‘I could take away everything you want! Destroy all your heart’s desires!’ the mage screams.

    Geralt cuts his head off. That's probably the end of it.

    Jaskier is left dealing with the fallout of the dead mage's curse when Geralt just ... leaves him.

    Summary

    Jaskier has always known he loves in a way that is too much. He gives too much of himself, and wants too much in return. This is how he copes with that; getting back with his abusive shit of an ex.

    ---
    Jaskier puffed his chest up, ready to launch into a diatribe on the injustices of surly barmaids when a hand reached in front of him to deposit several coins in front of him. “I’ll pay. Whatever our dear, disaster, Dandelion desires.”

    Oh god, thought Jaskier. I fucking hate alliteration.

    A bard who knew him, who called him Dandelion, the nickname only his classmates remembered.

    Shit and fuck, thought Jaskier succinctly, then turned to face his nemesis.

     

    “Hallo Valdo. Fancy meeting you here. Crippled Kate’s close early?”
