    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

    “You know,” Tony replied, “I heard that Manhattan has neighborhoods, too. I know Hell’s Kitchen is taken but maybe you throw your hat in for Greenwich Village?”
    “Tony-”
    “Bowery?”
    Peter shook his head.
    “Two Bridges?”
    Peter huffed a breath and snapped, “Spider-Man’s from Queens!”
    Tony raised his eyebrows in surprise at his harsh tone and straightened. “Something I said?”

     

     

    When Peter's adoption by Tony is granted one year after May's tragic death, Peter quickly realizes that becoming the official heir to Stark Industries might mean having to give up on his roots for good.
    Finding solace in going out again as Spider-Man, Peter's close-knit relationship with Tony is soon challenged when he encounters not just alien weapon dealers, but also what appears to be a vicious serial killer terrorizing the city. When Peter discovers just who the killer’s victims are, he is determined to track them down, going against Tony's wish to keep Spider-Man a low-level neighborhood vigilante ... and unknowingly risks becoming a victim himself.

    Summary

    It’s been months since Rasputin and Disappear-O the Magnificent almost sent Tony and the others to a watery grave. Things have been pleasantly looking up since then. For starters, Tony felt as close as ever with the kid. Of course, trying to distinguish the difference between normal teenage angst and something else that could be seriously wrong with his protege was proving to be...a challenge. And walking into the kitchen to find the Winter Soldier eating his food was not helping.

    Meanwhile, Peter has a whole new school year to look forward to. And with the addition of old friends popping back into his life, he was sure things could only get better from this point on. Sure, sleeping was a little rough lately, but no big deal. And he really needed to figure out how to remove this black slime from his backpack. But yeah, everything’s great.

    Things were great. Totally great.

    Although, now that he was being honest with himself, Peter was feeling a bit sick lately. And for real, what was with this black slime?

    (Or: OsCorp is inadvertently ruining everyone's life and Tony is done with this B.S. Protective Avengers and Shameless Peter Whump.)

    Summary

    The summer begins, and Peter has a lot to juggle. Work, internship, Spider-Man, friends. It doesn't help that he's being tracked down by someone with a scorpion tattoo looking for revenge.

    Featuring, in no particular order: a car crash, a kidnapping, and a kiss.

    Yeah, this might be Peter's most eventful summer yet.
