I know you wanted smut prompts but I don't know if I'm quite up to smutty Bucky/Wanda yet so is it okay if I just request cuddlefic instead? XD Like Bucky wakes up from a nightmare and Wanda finds him because she could feel his mind going crazy so she uses her powers to ease his mind a bit and Steve and/or Natasha and/or Pietro find them the next morning all tangled up together? :D Bonus if Wanda throws in a line about controlling your own fears.
I will never say no to cuddles, darling.
It’s not unusual for her to wake up in the middle of the night. It’s been happening since she was little, since before the missiles and the destruction and the experiments, though all of that trauma probably didn’t help anything. There were a few good months right after volunteering with Hydra where she almost hated the thought of going to sleep, because her power was too strong and too unpredictable for her to control even while awake. Things are better now, obviously, but there are still going to be side effects of all the horrors that she’s seen and the mistakes she’s made. People fear her and for good reason. She knows she can be dangerous, but fearing herself will only ever make things worse, so she tries not to anymore.
It’s worked for the most part. Being around The Avengers makes a difference, too. She can’t remember the last time she’s been in an environment that felt so… comfortable.
