    I felt like it was implied Geralt and Yenn met up a few times between their meetings in 5 & 6.

    Did I imagine that? Some of the banter etc gave me the impression they’d seen each other around in between eps.

    Same. That's the impression I got.

    Yeah, it's a little vague on details, but that's straight off a Netflix page (NX) on twitter. Going to binge it again this weekend I think, I'll pay a lot more attention this time.

    This is a chart version of the interactive timeline on netflixs website yeah? https://www.witchernetflix.com/en-gb weird that the chart cut some off.
    Edit: nvm, realised its just an episode chart. One thing the timeline on the site shows though is that it turns out Geralt is older then Yenn in the show while in the books its the other way around.

    Not sure about the show timeline, but in the books Yen and Geralt had already spent a couple years living together in between, so it’s probably based off that.

    You can gloss over a couple, or even a dozen or so incidental meetings in between time-skips - you cannot just gloss over them living together though. That's a pretty big fuck up, if true. That'd be like cutting the Surprise scene but still having Ciri frantically searching for Geralt...

    Also re 'Toxicity' in fanbases, I genuinely think Social Media has warped our sense of reality. It gives weight to the statistically insignificant just because they're loud/vulgar/have ease of access. People need to start being trained from a young age that SM isn't a reflection of society. Hundreds of millions of people use it every day, these popular celebrities can have tens of thousands of people wanting to interact with them. How many are actually toxic? One hundred? Maybe five hundred if I'm 'steelmanning'? Out of the tens of thousands (on the low of of celebrity) of people following, that's a pretty great 'asshole percentage' if you ask me.

    If they admit that the numbers are trivial, then they can’t use it as an excuse to deflect criticism anymore.

    A big part of that is that humans are hardwired to take note of things that are unusual, that stand out. People perceive things to be significantly more toxic than it is, precisely because it isn't very toxic at all. All the positivity just sorta blurs together into a homogenous mess, while the toxic stuff stands out in stark relief to it, and so is much more easily remembered.

    Reminds me of that ... whatever ... about how it always feels like every red light catches you, because those are the ones you remember. You don't remember all the green ones.

    The montage and dialogue in that episode gave me the impression that, at most, Geralt and Yennifer had spent a few nights together in the same place for a while - they might have seen a lot of each other, but they weren't living or travelling together.

    I just finished bingeing it right now, and man. I loved it. Cavill is brilliant in this role. Not knowing anything about the lore I'm not gonna comment about what worked and what didn't, but I am going to buy the books and rip through them.
