    Witcher Fic Recs 15

    Blue Christmas (coën/lambert, geralt, eskel, ciri, vesemir, teen, complete, 2k, major character death) They’d all been a mess for weeks now, but Christmas Eve looming on the horizon had only made things worse. Geralt didn’t plan to open the riding school again until into the new year, and Eskel was keeping himself busy with the farm, but Lambert had closed up the workshop and hadn’t so much as looked at a project since he’d dropped everything to rush to the hospital after Geralt had called. Geralt and Eskel were worried about him.

    Decade (eskel/lambert, explicit, complete, 4k) Lambert’s being a brat. Eskel puts him in his place (and figures out what’s wrong in the meantime).

    Euterpe (jaskier/lambert, mature, complete, 2k) Lambert acts on instinct, kicking the man’s feet out from underneath him and pinning him on his back in one swift move. It’s fairly useless, for a monster, letting out a terrified scream as it drops their only water source. It tries nothing that could be called self-defense even if held upside down and looked at sideways. “What are you?” Lambert hisses. “Nothing dangerous, I swear!” the thing squeaks, “A minor god, you wouldn’t even know of me, no one does anymore!"

    Geralt of Rivia and the Jewel of Cintra (geralt/jaskier, eskel/triss, teen, complete, 50k) The Son, the Wife, the Mistress, the Tutor or the Mysterious Elf? With monsters now extinct, witchers had to find other lines of work. Unfortunately for Private Detective Geralt of Rivia, he owed Sigismund Dijkstra a favour and the Head of the Redanian secret service was cashing in. There had been a high profile murder and he needed someone to go and discreetly sort it out.

    Hold Not the World in Your Hands (aiden/coën, coën/lambert, aiden/lambert , mature, complete, 3k) Coën tends to Aiden's wounds, and learns more about this Cat his lover is in love with. Or, 5 times Coën touches Aiden + 1 time Aiden touches Coën.

    Letters (geralt-centric, teen, complete, 2k) Jaskier receives a letter from his family to remind him that he's loved. Geralt decides to send a few of his own.

    Lifeguard to my Heart (aiden/lambert, mature, wip, 10k) Lambert gets talked into buying surfing lessons by his girlfriend right before they break up. He'll be damned if he's going to waste the good money he paid for them so he guesses he's going to learn how to surf now. That hot lifeguard that always seems to be on the beach when he's there certainly helps matters too. The Lambden Surfer AU that no one asked for but you all are going to get anyways!

    Punishment for a Trainee (ivar/warritt, explicit, complete, 6k) Warritt always has the most intense ideas, and Ivar's happy to give him what he wants. This time, little trainee Warritt can't seem to get himself to behave, but Grandmaster Ivar knows exactly how to fix that.

    Surviving Hard Knocks (vesemir-centric, mature, wip, 22k, graphic depictions of violence) They never expected Vesemir to live. Not when he was a child. Not for his Trials. Not on the Path. Not during the Pogroms. And certainly not when the King of the Wild Hunt took the seriously injured eldest witcher through the portal. But Vesemir has managed through dire straits before. Now he must draw on old lessons and experiences to survive his capture by the Wild Hunt. His friends and allies are worlds away. Cirilla is still in danger. Vesemir is at the mercy of a cruel elven king and a viciously intelligent viceroy. He must not only survive his imprisonment, but escape if he is to help his small family against the invading elves. Because Vesemir will be damned if he will let anyone hurt his family while he has a single breath to draw.

    The Old Hen She Cackled (eskel-centric, explicit, complete, 35k, graphic depictions of violence, please read all the tags, this is very dark!) Someone on Tumbler wanted a fic where Eskel is not the good boy he normally is. This is that fic. - He remembered seeing Vesemir’s eyes light up with joy as Lambert threw himself through the oaken doors of the keep. He remembered the laughs and hugs when Geralt would return for the year. He coveted the looks they got from the last surviving master of the Wolf keep, but what he got instead was a small smile, a nod, and occasionally, a pat on the back or a simple embrace. It was because he was, Eskel. Good ol’ steady Eskel, who returned every year without fail.

    The Portraits of the Witcher as an Old Man (geralt-centric, aiden/lambert, teen, complete, 3k) When the crowds finally part and Geralt sets eyes on the painter’s masterpiece, his first thought is well, at least that explains the funny looks I’ve been getting all morning. People had been gawking at him, smirking as if they knew something private about him, and whispering to each other. It hadn’t felt malicious per se, more like one of those dreams where you suddenly find yourself outside in public without your clothes on. Now, with the reason for that sensation displayed before him in all of its questionable glory, Geralt has to give it to his gut for the exceedingly apt comparison.

    To Live Well (erland, gezras, erland/arnaghad, mature, wip, 3k, graphic depictions of violence, major character death) Living well is the best revenge — that's how the old saying goes. But what does it mean? Is it burying the past in the depths of one's mind and moving on? Is it seeking bloody vengeance to ensure that one's abuser will never happen to anyone else ever again? What does living well mean when so many have lost so much? Erland of Larvik — dedicated community leader, loving husband, caring father, and first survivor of the atrocious mutations inflicted by the masterminds behind the Order of Witchers — thought the worst was behind him. But when a stranger barges into his life, Erland is forced to confront the real horrors of their shared past. How does one move on, if living well can only be made possible by killing an idea?

    Rainbow Farm Chronicles - series (eskel/geralt/jaskier, aiden/lambert, explicit, 100k) Eskel and Geralt just have a few too many aesthetically pleasing attributes to ignore, which Jaskier tries not to make into a problem. Of course the two most attractive people in town are married. To each other! It’s fine, it will be fine, because he’s here for the adventure, and the change, and to make friends. A boy can dream and appreciate the nice things that present themselves to him so handsomely, ok? Or: Geralt and Eskel are hot and competent farmer husbands, Jaskier is their new oblivious vet who is looking for adventures in the little mountain village of Morhen, Lambert and Aiden are absolutely besotted with each other, Vesemir is the proud farmer dad/grandpa, and Ciri has always loved rainbows. A Modern Farm AU where everyone is queer, including Roach.

    Star-Laiden Sky (eskel&lambert, aiden/lambert, eskel/geralt, teen, complete, 2k) It’d been a long, hard year, the entire continent bracing for war. But Geralt had brought a fight home to Kaer Morhen with him that winter, and there hadn't been much time to rest in the midst of battle preparations. But, in a stolen quiet moment, Eskel takes the time to really look at Lambert. He doesn't like what he finds. (i.e. Aiden lives but not yet)

    Whatever it takes (aiden/coën/lambert, mature, complete, 7k,graphic depictions of violence) A memory flashes through his mind, of two pairs of cat eyes, one amber-gold and one tinged slightly with green; of two hands holding his, one copper-skinned, the other the glowing warmth of umber, intertwining their fingers. Dimples, a quick laugh, warm skin, a shout reverberating through a keep somewhere, and two pairs of lips on his that feel like home. Coën. Aiden. The names stand out stark in his mind, like the flames of a bonfire. Lambert grits his teeth and takes another few steps, knowing that they are out there somewhere, waiting for him. * Lambert is being blackmailed by a mage for Aiden's and Coën's safety and finds himself in more and more dangerous situations. Can he save them?

    when in toussaint (geralt/regis, teen, complete, 2k) “You’ll tire of wine soon, no doubt,” Regis says, standing at the door for the fourth time that week bearing a bottle of red and a rueful smile, “but, well. When in Toussaint, as it were. Or: Geralt isn't used to being taken care of.

    Have an idea that theoretically takes place in an a/b/o au, though that is only barely relevant to the plot, and is referenced exactly once. And huge thanks to @tumbleweedtech for letting me throw these thoughts at you when I couldn't sleep

    Erland and Arnaghad have been together for years, but then the Great Divorce happens, and Erland is busy building his new school, only his expected heat doesn't come, and he'd love to blame it on stress, but there are other signs that he maybe, might potentially, just possibly be pregnant. Turns out witchers aren't 100% guaranteed sterile, it's just really hard for them to procreate.

    So he runs off to "ask for funds" before anybody else can notice Keldar notices and has Vaz and Nylah help him through it.

    Problem is, he can tell from the moment he holds his baby that they're not 100% human. There's a faint buzz of Chaos that is halfway between human and witcher, and Erland knows his little Letho won't be safe near the Griffin mages, who will want to poke and prod and interrogate at best. And if it gets out that they can breed witchers, he knows that there will be at least some who decide to force the matter.

    So he asks his friends to keep Letho hidden.

    Letho’s still a baby when Erland hears about Ivar and the Vipers. He's barely more than a year old when Erland hears from Ivar.

    Ivar always was a little too nosy. He’d somehow managed to figure it all out.

    It's Erland that suggests it, though. Ivar has no love for the mages, and runs a tight ship. He can train Letho to control that connection to Chaos, without putting him in the path of any mages.

    Erland hates himself for it, but Vaz and Nylah can't raise Letho for him. Not when he's bigger and stronger than any other child his age. Not when tantrums are accompanied by sparks of Chaos.

    The thought of telling Arnaghad does cross his mind. More than once, even. But Haern Caduch has all the same pitfalls as Caer y Seren, and Erland has not been impressed by what he's heard of Arnaghad's training.

    Letho doesn't remember his parents. He has vague memories of brown skin, and patterns on an elegant hand. It might have been his mother, but he'll never know.

    He's bigger and stronger than the other boys in his cohort. The witchers all say he must be part Gemmeran. They also say he's got an innate connection to Chaos, given that he's able to make sparks when he practices his Signs. None of the others in his cohort can do that yet, and only half of the cohort that have just been through the Grasses are able to do it.

    The Grandmaster watches him closely, and Letho always strives to do his absolute best, so that Ivar doesn't find any fault in his work. He doesn't know why Ivar watches him so closely, but it's unnerving.

    When the Grasses are approaching, Ivar spends a lot of time in his office, writing and reading letters. He seems... stressed, maybe? Letho isn't sure, but he's been frowning a lot more lately.

    Letho wakes from the Grasses with no hair. Everyone talks about how it happens, sometimes, that one of the adepts will react strangely to the mutations. Ivar just keeps watching him.

    Letho doesn't know until much later that he's the heir to three schools, and the progeny of the First Witcher and the Great Bear. By then, the world has changed. The Wild Hunt is coming, and the young White Wolf needs Letho’s help.

    Weekly (?) Witcher Fic Recs 14

    A Contract's a Contract, No Matter How Small (geralt/jaskier, aiden/lambert, mature, wip, 35k) Unexpected side effect of Jaskier praising witchers far and wide: children making the logical jump that witchers can handle ALL monsters. Including such subspecies as the under-the-bed variety. And, well, what are you supposed to say to a child who asks you to fight a monster for them?

    A Helping Hand (aiden/lambert, explicit, complete, 7k, omegaverse) Lambert finds an unexpected heat coming on with no one around to help him through it, that is until a handsome alpha happens across his path. The only problem is that the alpha is a Cat Witcher and everyone knows that Wolves and Cats don't get along...right?

    A Witcher's Plumage (coën/lambert, explicit, complete, 2k) Wolf witchers are the only ones who wear the old fashioned codpiece ensemble. It has an unexpected effect on Coën, and he's not sure how to deal with it.

    Birds of a Feather (coën/erland, mature, complete, 4k) Erland had spent his ruts alone for many, many years now. Ever since... ever since. He was alone by choice, for he was never short of offers. Omegas fresh from their first year on The Path, who thought themselves wiser for their time in the world, would approach their Grandmaster with a bow, giving him their respect before they all said the exact same thing: “Grandmaster Erland, I offer my company. It would be an honor to assist you in your time of need.” But he always turned them away, always.

    Lambert's Nightmare (coën/lambert, explicit, complete, 3k) The dreams had never fully abated for Lambert. They weren’t usually the vivid, violent ordeals of his boyhood, when he woke up screaming in the dormitories with Voltehre shaking his shoulders, his face creased in worry. It was as if age and the Path had worn away his sensitivity, leaving behind a callus to protect him from the worst of the horrors he faced on a daily basis. How could you stare down a wraith manifested from the abject cruelty of humanity with any part of a soul left? There was truth to the rumours of soulless Witchers, of that Lambert was certain. So much loss had hardened him to the prospect of losing his brothers on the Path. It was all part of the wider clusterfuck of being a witcher. But when Ciri arrived, they had started again. Or: Lambert experiences troubling dreams when Ciri arrives at Kaer Morhen and fears that her presence will only bring ruin and pain.

    Little Bear (lambert/OC, lambert/grayson, explicit, complete, 8k) Getting to know his brother—his actual brother, not just a brother in arms like Geralt or Eskel—was the sort of thing Lambert never imagined for himself, someone who remembered and missed their mother, who shared something with him other than the bullshit of a Witcher's life. It was... fuck, it was good, it made him feel connected to the world again like he hadn't in so very long. Lambert wasn't used to having good things in his life and now he had more people to trust, more people he knew had his back. For the longest time, all he had was Eskel, Geralt, and maybe Vesemir, but the Bears were solid. They didn't say much and pretended not to like each other, but they offered him a place for winter, that wasn't nothing, not to a Witcher.

    Lord What Fools These Witchers Be (aiden/eskel, geralt/jaskier/yennefer, teen, complete, 22k) When Lambert brings Aiden to winter with him in Kaer Morhen, Eskel is catapulted straight into his own personal hell. It would be easier if he didn’t like the Cat. Instead, he finds himself falling head over heels for his brother’s boyfriend and trying to hide it from a pack of nosy Witchers. If only Aiden would stop flirting with him...

    Mutual Defeat (iorveth/roche, explicit, complete, 4k) Roche glances at the tent door. No one understands this odd dance he has with Iorveth. He knows half think him mad, while the other half think he must have some genius strategy planned out to end the elf in a glorious and triumphant battle, staged to maximise Iorveth’s humiliation and the Blue Stripes’ elevation to infamy. The latter idea is laughable really. There is no planning for Iorveth. He is chaos. Unpredictable, volatile. Roche's opposite in every way, and yet... Or: Roche thinks he has Iorveth right where he wants him. Turns out Iorveth doesn't much mind being there.

    No need to speak (arnaghad/erland, gen, complete, 1k) Erland and his bear had their own language, after all, made of small gestures, trinket bought from the Path, quiet moments, and small whispered conversation, it was enough

    Parhelia Rewired (eskel/geralt/lambert, mature, wip, 5k) "Almost in position. How's everything looking on your end, Scorpion?" "Five by five from here," rumbled Eskel's voice in Lambert's earpiece as he crept along the darkened corridor, sword at the ready for any unexpected surprises. "Don't forget it's the second hall on the right, not the first," came Geralt's deep monotone. Lambert blew a raspberry into his mic, "This ain't my first fucking rodeo, Roach. Tell me something actually useful - like how you've got our exit plan secured already." "Your exit is clear. Still don't know why you got to pick the call signs." Was it just him or did Geralt sound fucking petulant? Lambert grinned as he glanced around the corner to find the hallway empty as expected. Priceless. "Scout gets to pick the call signs. Paperweight shuts his cakehole, Roach," Lambert chirped back over the line.

    Scarred Hearts are Fixed With Love (eskel-centric, teen, complete, 5k) Eskel comes to terms with the new scars on his face with a little help from his family along the way.

    Soft Spot (eskel/lambert, explicit, complete, 6k) Geralt cheated during their sparring, and when Lambert calls him out on it, he says his same old famous line. Go cry to Eskel. Which is exactly what Lambert does, and it gets him a beautiful night curled around the leader of their pack with as much comfort as he can stand. Eskel's always had a soft spot for their youngest wolf.

    The Bitter Blood Inside (geralt/jaskier, explicit, wip, 50k) The course of Jaskier's life is changed forever more, by the hand of a furious vampire. Geralt is there, the only one who might help him in the trials to come. Whether that be to cure him, or kill him, the bard would always trust his decision. It is only himself he can no longer trust.

    time is a dangerous enemy - series (iorveth/roche, iorveth/letho, mature, wip, 14k) Iorveth is feeling his age. After 1,000 years, the face of the continent has changed. He has changed with it- and that isn't always a positive feeling. Considering what he's lost, and what he's gained. Was it worth it?

    Tomorrow (eskel/lambert, teen, complete, 2k) Lambert and Eskel meet on the path, and Lambert gets more than he bargained for. Featuring angry, scared Lambert and gentle, protective Eskel.
