Credence Barebone / Cuddles & comfort:
- Because Credence had been abused, it will be a dodgy subject to him just because (in my honest opinion), being betrayed by Graves was a pushing point. You’d have to give him time in order for it to be okay for him again, but once he begins to feel your touch, he’s drunk off it.
- He loves to have your hands roam around to his back side and have your fingers massage at the base of his spine. It’s a coping skill that comforts him when he feels overly stimulated with stress.
- Credence likes to have his hair messed with, it makes his eyes roll back.
- He absolutely adores being the little spoon, curling into protection (usually into your neck or stomach). He has his arms snaked around your waist and his lips perked against your collarbone.
- He’s ticklish.
- Good lord, is he ticklish. His ribs, part of his thighs, and under his chin is where he loses it (have you ever heard Credence snort? well you will for sure if you try that).
- Since his obscurus is very cautious when it’s out in its own form, comforting it and himself has to take a series of persuasion and lulling.
- Singing softly, reassuring him that it is just you and no one else, saying good things about him or bringing up positive memories - mostly works.
