    Summary

    There's something about this girl, like looking in a funhouse mirror a third of his size. “Oi, kid,” Toji says. “It’s you, isn’t it?”

    The girl glares daggers at him from behind a pair of red-rimmed glasses too big for her tiny face. She’s looking at him like he’s totally crazy, which isn’t entirely untrue. “Huh? Who the heck are you?”

    In lieu of answering, he asks, “What’s your name?”

    The girl scowls. “Maki.”

    “Maki,” he repeats, and it’s like a missing piece of his soul falls back into place. The record of his life before he fought the Six-Eyes brat is a long, impossibly white scroll of nothing -- but written on it in faint letters is the name of a child, a child with a delicate name that brushed the heavens, spun a prayer into letters; a name that began with an M, and it ended in i, too.

    “Maki,” he says again. “I think you’re my daughter.”

    --------

    Toji makes a mistake. It changes everything.

    Summary

    Captain America is a national icon. A picture in a history textbook; a story on the lips of old men.

    Steve Rogers, on the other hand, is a wreck.

    Summary

    “Peter Parker,” Cindy says. Peter’s head snaps up so fast that it almost looks inhuman. “Did Tony Stark just waltz in and pick up his child in the background of your Zoom call?”

    Peter freezes. Wide-eyed, with ‘guilty’ written on his forehead in 72, bold, Times New Roman font. It takes a solid thirty seconds before he can put himself together enough to click the unmute button.

    “I—no?” Peter says. His voice is startlingly high pitched and his expression is nothing short of horrified.

    Damn, if that isn’t anything but a confession.

    Or: a day in the life of the quarantined high school spider-kid, as seen through the eyes of his first-period chemistry class.
