Jester“Like, if I tattooed you bicep Yasha.”
Jester“I would have intimate knowledge of your bicep.”
Yasha“[gay noises] That's a real cool trick...I'm gonna keep carrying this clay.”

Yashter is the femslash ship between Yasha Nydoorin and Jester Lavorre from the Critical Role fandom.


Curious Beginnings

Jester and her group are sitting at a table in the tavern when two people from the Carnival walk in. One introduces himself as Molly and the other as Yasha. After a quick conversation, they leave. Jester tells Beau that she found Yasha's look cool and asks if she could pull it off.

Later, they all go to the Carnival and see Yasha and Molly. They find out that they have to give up their weapons to get inside, and Jester immediately tries to get Yasha to let them in with them. Yasha says that she can't let them in with them, and Jester suggests that they could be hired as extra security. Yasha says that's her job. Jester asks if she wants to hire them, but she says no. They all eventually relent and allow Yasha to take their weapons. Jester says that she'll hand hers over, but wants Yasha to pinky promise that she'll give it back. Yasha says that she doesn't like that, but Jester already grabs. She says that now means they're best friends and hands over her sickle.

Steam and Conversation

As the Mighty Nein head into the bathouse, they;re all surprised to see Yasha. Jester immediatly start to ask her questions, specifiacally if she was in Allfield. Yasha was and says that she found the aftermath of their stay there. She also questions that they're now calling themselves the Mighty Nein, which Jester confirms. She then asks if Yasha is religious, and if she is a follower of the Traveler. She takes it back though, when she realizes that she probably already have met Yasha if she worshiped him. She asks more about where Yasha is from, but realizes that she might be overwhelming her, and apologizes.

Zemnian Nights

Beau and Jester wake up to see Yasha staring out to the storm outside. Beaus says she looks scary at night, which Yashs gets a lot. Jester sits down nets to her and starts to show her the drawings of the rat balloons in her sketch book, making her smile. Yasha compliments the drawings and says that she could never draw. Jester offers to draw her, but Yasha just pulls away and looks to the storm. She suggests that Jester get some sleep, which Jester agrees to, just as Beau asks if she's alright. She nods, and returns to her mditation as Beau and Jester sleep.

The next morning, Beau and Jester see that Yasha is now gone. Beau suggests that she was a ghost the whole time, while Jester suggests that the lightning exploded her. Beau calls that metal, but Jester offers that she walked off at lost her memories. Beau things that is a possiblity, but feels that Yasha probably just went off to do Yasha stuff. Jester agrees, and both decide to ask Molly and head downstairs.

The ship is a more rare pair within the Critical Role fandom, as both ladies are more often shipped with Beau. The ship gained some traction after Jester was immediatly welcoming after Yasha was released from Obann's spell.

Yashter fans greatly appreciated during episode 97, when Jester commented on Yasha's bicep. Jester also picking Yasha's party dress also added to the pair, most taking note of Yasha including a slit and talking about how great Yasha's legs are later on. Fan art of them in their part outfits then made its way through the fandom. The pairing grew after that and continued as they made their way too TravellerCon, with both of them talking about their issues while making souvenirs for TravellerCon.

On AO3, Yashter is the third most written ship for Yasha, and the ninth most written for Jester.
