    Summary

    He fought for so long, and the world he died protecting no longer exists, replaced by one where technology is precedence over human contact, and instead of asking for a dames hand to dance boys will call them sluts and other names Steve can’t bear to pronounce.

    He watches the world around him, so full of lust and blood and speed, and it terrifies him that he is no longer sure whether he’d die tomorrow for it.

    Summary

    “I was dead,” Peter said, and Johnny took a sharp breath. “In this other universe, Kingpin killed me.” He waved a hand. “Couple years back, I was still in grad school.” His mouth twisted. “Also I was blond.”

    “I must've inspired you,” Johnny joked, pushing it past the weird film clinging to his throat. Something occurred to him. “Wait, was I there?”

    Peter nodded, his eyes still on the sky. “Yeah,” he said, and then looked sideways at Johnny. “I mean, I never saw you, but Miles had a pic of the Spider-Mobile, and there's no way I built a car that hideous with anyone else.”

    Johnny felt himself smile at him, but his mind was whirling with weird, displaced anger. I was there, he wanted to say, and you were still dead? I was there and I didn't stop it?

    +

    Unrequited Johnny/Peter B. Parker. Sorry to Johnny but sometimes Peter & MJ...are in love.

    Title, like my previous ITSV coda, from Ray Bradbury.

    Summary

    Peter startles awake when someone shakes him.

    “Sorry, honey,” May says. Peter blinks a couple times and she comes into focus, her hair pulled back from her face. She’s trying not to look a certain way, but he can see it in her eyes anyway. She clears her throat, keeps talking. “But it’s…” She glances away, wets her lips. “You gotta get ready.”

    He remembers what day it is, and his heart beats like a drum at someone’s execution. But he tries to put on a mask, make it all seem normal. It’s everything but, despite the fact that he’s been dealing with reaping day since he was born, between himself, Ben and May. That fear that one of them could be taken away. Sent to surefire slaughter. But now Ben is gone, taken despite never having his name drawn from a bowl, and May’s finally safe. Now Peter’s name is in there alone. The last Parker sitting on the chopping block. He doesn’t know how to be. He doesn’t know what normal is, when the Hunger Games are looming on the horizon.

    Summary

    Andrew was…nice. In like, a normal person sort of way. So nice he was boring. Way too boring for Johnny, Peter thought. He wore glasses with thick square frames and read books, all the time. Sometimes, Peter would come back to his and Johnny’s apartment and Andrew would be sitting on their couch, reading a thick book with his dumb glasses on.

    And then there was Frankie, who actually went by Frankie. Peter really didn’t like Frankie, mainly because he seemed like one of those white guys who dropped the n-word on Call of Duty because no one knew they weren’t black.

    But Johnny had other boyfriends, and Peter had liked them well enough, so he wasn’t homophobic.

    Right?
