John Childermass/John Uskglass, Dreams, Healing, Scars, Comfort
The Raven King does not like to see his servants hurt, and this servant least of all. Once magic is restored to England, Childermass begins to find that he has strange dreams whenever he is hurt, ones that he cannot remember clearly afterwards, but from which he always wakes up feeling oddly comforted and refreshed. Dreams where he vaguely remembers his hurts and old scars being lavished with a fierce and oddly tender attention, and a dark, powerful figure that shields him from harm. He doesn't know what to make of them, and vaguely wonders if they should really be as erotic as they are, but a dream's a dream and hardly his doing, so he doesn't worry too much about them.
Not, at least, until the Raven King decides to claim him in the waking world as well.
(Prompt brought to you by the absent healing of a disfigured cheek, yes, why do you ask?)
