And yes that's Geralt in Equestria Girl style for infinite justice

Note: Familiarity with The Witcher series is probably not necessary for enjoyment of this fic. There are a lot of references to events from the books (Especially Sword of Destiny), but the important ones are explained anyway.

Geralt of Rivia had a complicated life on The Continent. Navigating difficult political situations, getting shorted by his clients, slaying monsters, and living as an outcast had made things challenging for the witcher.

But now, Geralt has found himself in a foreign land, with foreign customs and behavior. Seeking to do what he has always done – find witcher's work slaying monsters – Geralt is about to discover just how simple things can become. And how challenging the simplest of things can really be.

Friendship. I'm talking about friendship. It's simple, but it's challenging, get it? Don't overthink this. The comedy and random tags exist for a reason. Also, sex tag is for references to sex, not because of actual sex. Get your heads out of the gutter.

Me like.

On another note : really? I'd thought he'd be a pony for at least a whole arc before finding a way to become human and it would have something to do with the poison joke.

Either way will keep track of it.

Seems interesting, although I've not read it yet. I will give it a go soon.

I cannot say if I like this story just yet. Though that doesn't mean I am not interested, I simply don't have a big enough sample to give a clear opinion. I can't wait to see how this goes.

His pony form becomes more relevant down the line. It was thrown into the intro mostly as a joke, like "I'm a pony!" - reader assumes he will be a pony for all or most of story, and then, BAM, nope!

Very important question before I start. Is this part of your other 'Librarian Twilight' series? First thing I thought of when I read the title.

Eh, I'm sure he'll really love the Bugbears, Cragadiles, and other assorted pun based monsters. Also, I'm sure he can potentially convince the ponies to give him a bounty for Bugbears given they, at least according to the RPG, feel no emotion other than hate as is natural for something that is part wasp.

Short, slow start. Interested in seeing where this goes. Gave me a few chuckles already.

I can't wait.

8860782
It is!

It's a reference to my other "Librarian twilight" fics. The titles get longer the more of them I make.

I'm almost totally unfamiliar with The Witcher, but you have my interest. Looking forward to more.

My dude. Keep up this amazing story. It’s got a great concept to it. I am
Loving the back and forth transformation. Keep posting that content

I'be never played them myseof, but my dad played the games. And for what I've seen so far, you capture Geralt's personality well.

8863010
Glad to hear you think so. I'm actually basing his depiction more off of the books than the games, but this is meant to be the older Geralt seen in the games, who's adjusted more to life.

Geralt and parties don’t generallt mix, due to Geralt not exactly being a social being. This ought to be fun

You know what, continue. If you are doing this by the chesterfield (seat) of your bermudas (pants) then this can very easily go in any direction. And that makes it exciting.

8863877
I really am. Though I have a buffer of chapters to post at this point.

There is a TV show in the works on Netflix, and an older polish show but under the titled "The Hexer." Most people know it from the games and the books if you live outside of Poland, and the books and the games if you live in Poland.

Also, I find this whole situation deeply amusing on many levels. It is such a treat getting to see Geralt being treated nicely.

He mentions Halflings, and I find that comparison quite apt. I affiliate ponies quite closely with the hobbits of the Shire, much more so than your average pack of humans. same values, same likes and dislikes, same lifestyles, same temperament. If you dropped Ponyville next to Hobbiton, there'd be a day of so of confusion followed by an amicable agreement to live and let live.

This chapter was about 9999% Witcher. It would be 10000%, but someone was actually fucking grateful and respected his job.

I'll wait for more with as much patience as I can collect. This is good, really good.

This story is just fantastic. Not sure how long you plan for it to be but I will enjoy every moment of it.

This is fantastic! It's just so funny. And the characters are great. Don'the stop updating till the story is good and done.

With Pinkie? No, they’d find a reason for a huge party.

I was expecting her to run through all five elements.

Which now makes me want to go through footage from the Witcher one and string together a video of Geralt embodying each of the elements of harmony in the least pony ways possible and entitle it "Geralt, Princess of Friendship."

Geralt thought back to the parasprite contract he'd taken a few days ago with a shudder. Organizing an impromptu band in Van Hoofer had been far easier than it should have been; the ponies had a strange affinity for spontaneous musical numbers.

Poor Geralt.

Dash watched him, in amusement at first, and then in amazement as the witcher kept up his pace with a smile and a nod to her each time he passed, running faster and farther than any normal man could manage. Still he only managed a couple hundred laps of his own before he finally stopped, panting and hands raised in defeat, with a smile on his face.

"On your left!"

I thought he woke up in Everfree how in the hay was he able to get to Vanhoover which is on the Northwest corner of Equestria before Ponyville to do the so called contract.

As much as I like this they feel like barely anything happens aside from a character interaction and a minigame.

Also, something something OoC something something.

I too have played the Witcher games.

Cute meeting of Gerald and Spike.

I think if you look at Griffons on the show, adults are about 1.5 times the size of adult ponies, but they're definitively a lot smaller the the griffons Geralt is used to.

I can't wait for him to meet Fluttershy, in some ways she's Equestria's closest thing to a Witcher.

8871932
The chapter jumped forward a week in time.


8872031
He met Fluttershy at the party, remember? She offered to fish for him.

8873141 Oh shoot, that's right. I wonder if he notices a lot of the books he's researching on discouraging critters has the same name on them in the checkout slip?

So looking forward to the continuation of this fic. Keep up the great work my dude.

Shouldn't have let this one linger unread. Wonderful stuff thus far. Looking forward to more.

I hope to get back on updating it over the next few days. Been pretty busy lately.

I love this so... when the next chapter?

8901588
Thanks for the support. Sorry for the delay on the new chapter. I finished Witcher 3 and got tied up in serious projects, so I lost my train of thought. I plan to get back to it ASAP.

Nice to get back to reading these. Will be interested to see if more plot shows up, but he's been playing off of everyone pretty well so far in the SoL stuff. Though clearly based on last chapter the story title's a lie. :V

Meant to say this forever ago, but: these are the kind of chapter titles I could very easily see with "In Which..." appended to the front.

So Thorax and the pastel horrors are cannon in this story. That poor changeling has no ideas as to the horrors that await him when he gets back to the hive.

I said make it a story, and damn it you did.

~Skeeter The Lurker

So glad you did not abandon this story. So excited. Also the Gwent addition was fantastic.

8963933
I don't abandon stories, I just take a while sometimes. I knew I wanted some action in this chapter, but I didn't like the way the script I had written was going. The magic wasn't there, and life was getting in the way.

Then Skeeter's friend insisted I have Geralt play vs. Discord in Gwent, and I said screw it why not. As for how the chapter ends, that was based on a goofy idea another friend suggested, and then yet-another friend made yet-another goofy suggestion which is going to take it to even more goofy extremes. Next chapter should be fun.

"Hey, that's not a valid class! You need to pick a class and come up with a name!"

Oh, if only it was. But, sigh, I'll have to use ranger.

"A lord of chaos."
Discord snapped his fingers, and Geralt suddenly staggered backwards, a strange sensation flooding him.
Spike, tonight you get to just be a player. Our new game master is... Geralt."

Oh, SHIT!

This sounds like a terrible idea.

Yes, yes it does.

"Seems I need to pack a few more of those dull 'clear weather' cards. Well-played, Geralt. Though it certainly is gauche to play yourself, don't you think?"

Oh, I imagine at least a few of Bob, Tiago, Jon, Pikula... have done so. And I bet most of their opponents were thrilled, or at least got a bit of a kick out of it. Do need to wonder if Larry Nevin has ever actually played the one named after him... got to figure someone's at least told him in the last 25 years, if nothing else.
