Jaskier and that one you get the same wounds/physical pain as your soulmate. But it's emotional. So uhh it's not good but thanks for reading this nonetheless!!
I'm a lil confused what you mean anon so i hope this is okay/close!
Blinded by his own rage, Geralt lashes out. He says all the things he thought in the quiet of his mind, all the hurtful comments meant to stay private. Things that, were he to actually think about them, were unjust and unworthy.
But they spill from his lips like poison, the acid curdling the expression on Jaskier's face.
It never feels good. Not even a moment of catharsis. Just a deep chasm of fucking nothing.
And because Geralt's life is one big fucking joke, this is the moment he feels it; that great sweeping emotion that lets him know he's discovered his soulmate.
Soulmates are made, and are made with emotional connection. Usually, hopefully, it's due to a positive one. Great love, fostered over years of knowing one another. The first taste of their loved echoed back is supposed to be euphoric.
Instead, Geralt feels the pain he's caused, mixed in with his own guilt. He closes his eyes and tries to bury it under all the other shit he's felt. It's not so easy this time.
Eventually, he climbs down the mountain.
Geralt is not a religious man, yet he finds himself praying he never has to feel the depths of Jaskier's pain ever again.
A few months later, he discovers that what he felt on the mountain is nothing compared to the abandonment, hopelessness, and resentment welling up inside.
Nothing compared to the dip of a knife, the fall of a hammer, nor the tightening of rope around his neck.
He feels it all
and knows it's somehow his doing.

so what gets me about the spot in the witcher trailer is when they ask Geralt about how he's spent his whole life alone and ask what changed that, he says Yennefer, which maybe, but like the fact that they show Jaskier too while the questions being asked, beautiful
like yes, Yennefer has changed him, but Jaskier spent so long with him and was changing Geralt and his life. Jaskier has absolutely changed Geralt and his lifetime alone
