I promise I only bite when provoked or requested. Light Of My Eyes


psa: speaking as someone who’s actually dated a guy with PTSD — hugging them in their sleep when they have nightmares will NOT calm them down. My boyfriend at the time wouldn’t even sleep in the same bed as me because he was worried he’d hurt me in his sleep. Much like a panic attack, severe nightmare victims will not react kindly to physical contact as a method of waking up. If you’re going to give a character PTSD, fine, but please don’t treat it like something that can be cured with the power of love and hugs. Even if they love the person sleeping next to them, they won’t recognize them when they wake up, so having Character A hug Character B to calm them down from a nightmare is really not true. Thanks.
