So @bloody-bee-tea and I were talking IronPanther, as we do basically every day now, and basically agreed that we need some nightmare h/c, because Tony has awful nightmares and we have yet to see anyone comfort him through this shit. So it needed to be done.
I scrounged the wiki for names of people in Wakanda. Like, actual named characters were kind of hard to find, and I’ve never read the comics, so if I fucked anything up badly I’m very very sorry.
This definitely ended up taking place in the Shifter!Verse, btw, and the basic premise is - T’Challa shifts into an actual panther, Tony kind of bolted a bit because, surprise, he’s also a shifter. A crow-shifter in fact, which are general looked down on and hated and definitely not good partner material for panther-shifters, let along king panther-shifters. T’Challa gives no fucks about this. (He in fact has plans to start a revolution basically to change how crow-shifters are seen. Tony is not-so-secretly touched and honored about that.)
Also, obviously, there are nightmares in this so, idk, nightmarish happenings warning?
Tony fell asleep on the couch, and slept right on through T’Challa getting up to go to one of his many meetings. He slept through some of the staff coming in to work, quietly moving around him and talking in hushed murmurs. Tony was stuck deep in his dreams.
Trapped in them.
