Under My Skin 42 - Good Night's Sleep by LJ-Phillips Under My Skin 42 - Good Night's Sleep by LJ-Phillips

Posting this week's Under My Skin early. Next page of the main comic Skins will probably be posted Friday or so.

Jordan tends to be a terrible snorer (something she steadfastly refuses to believe.) Vinnie's just learnt to hold a pillow over his ears and endure it.  They've argued about it and Jordan is adamant that Vinnie is simply dreaming that she's snoring. 

Whereas Rabbit is prone to very bad nightmares - the worst thing about them is how difficult it is to wake him from them.  Usually Tyr just holds him until Rabbit lapses back into a normal sleep. 

Any guesses what Rabbit's nightmares are about? He has several different kinds.

Notes:  During a nightmare, Rabbit reacted very badly when Tyr held him in other ways. So now Tyr just tries to hold him in a way that's both comforting and non-threatening (doubt Tyr's squad would believe this side of their captain.)The next morning Rabbit never remembers his nightmares.

As per usual, Tyr'll shave off his hair and stubble before work.

We all have our burdens to share when sleeping with our partners, some have snorng, some have kickers, and in poor, poor, bun-bun's case, he has terrible nightmares and sobs in his sleep. :iconsupertighthugplz: POOR, WIDDLE, BUNNY!!


Keller: It's awful, I was just coming up for my purse I left last night and I heard Rabbit sobbing, and pleading in fear. For a second I thought he was put into the pit, like in "Silence of the Lamb!"

Vanessa: We all have our weak-moments, Keller-Dear. Mine happen every few years, when I allow myself to turn into my true, monsterous form. And as for Rabbit, his demons come crawling, and scratching at his doors in the realm of sleep. It should be some comfort, that no matter what happens in his sleep, he'll always wake up to his bright sun.

Keller: :giggle: Yes, well, "Sunny" is not what I would call, Tyr, especialyl in the morning when he hasn't gotten a full nights sleep.

Mira: What does he dream of?

Vanessa: I used my Dream Mirror on him once, just for morbid curiosity, and let me tell you.....I coomune with the Dead, and what was being done to Rabbit in that dream, still left me simmering in rage, and chocking on disgust.

Mira: :( Oh....Poor Creature.

this is so funny, but Bunny, why he is crying?

Ah, glad you like this piece :)
Bunny has some very bad memories (his mother abandoned him, he was abused as a teenager, his last lover left him) and sometimes those memories come out in bad dreams. 
you are great :heart:
bravo !!!!!
