    Summary

    Jimmy Kaga-Ricci's life has been more or less average until now. He's just begun university, he dreams about starting a band with his best friend, Rowan, and he's had about 5% fewer panic attacks ever since London got its very own resident superhero, the friendly neighbourhood Spider-Angel. However, when he gets bitten by a radioactive spider and subsequently witnesses Spider-Angel's death, his life is turned upside-down - sometimes literally. Now he has to deal with strange changes in his body, familiar displaced faces from parallel universes and a supervillain too greedy for his own good who might just cause the multiverse to collapse. Can Jimmy and his new friends save the worlds in time?

    it was all bliss’s fault.
    bliss, the fucker, had convinced rowan to do a live stream.
    rowan hated live-streams.

    if he hadn’t live streamed, this never would’ve happened.and he wouldn’t have live-streamed if not for bliss. therefore this was 100% bliss’s fault. right?

     

    or alternatively~
    rowan is live streaming and the door to the hallway is on full view. fans see a little more than they should of jimmy and lister.
