    Summary

    “Kid.” Tony busies his hands by wiping them down with one of the brown recycled napkins to pat away the phantom stickiness between his fingers. When Peter doesn’t respond immediately, Tony flits the corner of the napkin at his nose. Peter starts.

    Tony’s mouth twitches involuntarily. “Pete. Look alive for a bit, huh? Why don’t you tell me how your day went?”

    The boy rubs at the side of his face with a soft fist as if to erase the imaginary drool and embarrassment. “You know how my day went. Pretty much. You were there for the whole man-in-a--”

    “--In-a-purple-cape-and-an-otter-mask debacle, yeah, I know. I was the one who personally promised to sue Party City for selling those abominations to the public. I was there,” Tony finishes for him wryly. As Peter’s head bobs and dips unnaturally low, Tony flicks at his chin this time with the end of his paper-wrapped straw. “I was talking about before that.”

    A night out to Friendly's post-patrol dredges up an unwanted memory of when Howard took little Tony out for ice cream after hitting him. Though Tony Stark today may be a man, that doesn't mean the memory of the rare affection amid the abuse doesn't still confuse him.

    Summary

    A full-body flinch courses through Peter. It’s not alarming--just a neurological tic of exhaustion that has Tony on his feet and crossing the small patch of distance left between them to sit on the nearest corner of the coffee table.

    Peter opens his eyes and blinks up at Tony, or rather at the shadow that falls over his pale face, and gives a tiny wave that under any other specific set of circumstances would be downright ridiculous. “Hi, Mr. Stark.”

    “Hi, kid. Wanna talk?”

    Peter goes to open his mouth but hesitates. They both know he’s too intelligent to play the innocent card now. The words replay themselves of their own accord in Tony’s mind--instant kill, instant kill, instant, kill, kill--

    One good look at Peter’s eyes confirms the kid is on the same page.

    When Tony gets the alert that Spider-Man has activated Instant Kill Mode for the first time, he expects to see May being kidnapped on the footage, or maybe Ned or even MJ. The last thing he expects is to see Peter with his fingers wrapped around the neck of a random teenager. Lying in the shadows under a coffee table, Peter finally pours out to Tony the details of his troubled past.

    Summary

    "What’s up?”

    “No, nothing’s wrong. Why would you think something’s wrong?” Peter gives a nervous laugh.

    So there’s definitely something wrong. “Yeah, no. Not buying it. Spill.”

    “Umm. Uh-huh. So…just, like, asking for a friend here…”

    “I’m on the edge of my seat.”

    “For absolutely no reason whatsoever, but…is it possible to break your kneecaps?”

    Okay, what? “Excuse me?”
