Warning: This poem contains intense topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. This is hardcore hurt/comfort. It includes canon-typical violence, a dragon destroying a city, fire, death, refugees, traumatic stress, interspecies issues, injuries of varying severity, including wings, messy medical details, exhaustion, grief, scar revulsion, loss, repeated trauma, and other mayhem. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.
