The Ivy Cottage
Hi, folks! A big thank you to everyone for giving my first fic Healing Touch so much love! I have decided to expand it into a little series to explore their relationship a little more and to play around with these characters. Please feel free to like and share… this COVID-frustrated actor is in need of validation lol.
Pairing: Geralt x femme!healer!reader (third person because I wanted to give her a name. Feel free to substitute for you own)
Summary: Geralt finds himself recuperating after a tough battle at the cottage of an old friend. Jaskier is confused about their relationship (sorry, there will be more Jaskier in other stories to come, but I wanted to focus on Geralt and Gwennyd this time).
Content Notes: Cannon-appropriate gore/wounds/blood, confused emotions, vague relationship, intimate friendship, brief mention of Yennifer, separation, fluff fluff FLUFF. So much fluff, you’ll need a lint roller when you’re done.
Word Count: ~3,500
Jaskier had no idea where they were headed, and with Geralt barely conscious, he was relying on the horse’s intuition. A ribbon of sticky crimson slowly trickled down Roach’s left flank as the makeshift tourniquet around Geralt’s upper thigh, now completely soaked through, had begun to fail. The blood-soaked white cloth stood out brightly from his dark trousers like a cardinal in dense forest. The witcher’s left arm, tucked tightly against his side as its owner slumped forward in his saddle, was holding a second wound shut as best it could, a clean shirt bunched against it. Jaskier knew very little of mending wounds, and had followed Geralt’s winded instructions to the best of his abilities and had just managed to get some basic directions from him and get him on the horse before he succumbed to exhaustion. They were heading directly into what looked like a dense forest, and Jaskier only hoped there would be no danger. He looked tentatively at Roach, who seemed to know where she was going still, and so onward they went. A few ragged breaths from Geralt let his two companions know that the sooner they reached this healer, the better.
