Do you know of any fics that deal with coping with trauma?
Summary: Every day without fail, just before dusk sets in, Eren sits on the top of the great Wall Maria. He draws the things his disturbed mind conjures up, and then folds them into a paper airplanes to send out, believing they’ll reach the one who owns his heart, wherever he’s gone…
Under Freedom’s Wing
Summary: Levi finds a half-dead Eren propped against his door in the middle of winter. While his physical wounds aren’t hard to fix, it doesn’t take Levi long to see that it’s not the only wounds the boy carries. What lead Eren to the door of the Freedom’s Wing Youth Shelter is unknown, but getting him to admit he needs help is going to be a battle of wills Levi refuses to lose.
A Million Kisses
Summary: Levi had survived. He was the only one of his squad that was able to return home to the family that he barely knows. The war in Afghanistan has taken a toll on his body and mind, which explains why Levi wished he also hadn’t returned. Everyone that he knew has either died or moved on from their friendship with Levi since he joined the army several years ago. He feels damaged and broken as he sits in his wheelchair in his new room.
Somehow this all changes when Mikasa, his niece, brings home a bright-eyed brunet named Eren to study with. Eren helps Levi with his nightmares at night when he wakes up screaming again and the warm tea that Eren provides Levi with after another rough night is the first thing the raven falls in love with.
if you hear a bullet go by
Summary: “Why are you still here?” Levi asks one morning over his cup of tea.
They’re outside, and he’s still wearing his sleeping clothes while Eren does push-ups in his poor excuse of a garden. Sweat runs down his back and Levi’s eyes follow its path indifferently. Gross, he thinks.
“Why haven’t you kicked me out?” Eren shoots back, panting.
A Voice From The Rubble
Summary: It all just took 30 seconds. Thirty seconds that kept replaying in my mind over and over again, the details so vivid. Thirty seconds that would change my life forever.
Thirty seconds earlier we had all been safely tucked up in bed. Shiganshina Lodge was my home, my family was visiting for the holidays; it had now become our tomb.
Shiganshina District had been a second home to all of us ever since I was born. I know this place. I know its beauty… I’m now learning its terror.
