    Summary

    Arthur is an investment banker. He is professional and efficient. He's a halfway decent cook. He's totally independent and has been since the age of eighteen. Maybe he's tired all the time because he works about ninety hours a week which is twice what normal people do, but he's rich and he's competent at his job. He's almost thirty, and already a success.

    And there are some things Arthur is not. For instance: Arthur is not gay.

    Summary

    “I still don’t get it,” Ned says. “How you just... keep being ordinary in spite of all the craziness you’ve lived through. You were in space. You helped Iron Man save the universe. And nobody knows it was you.” His tone softens, becomes almost sad. As though he realizes that what he’s saying is so completely alien to him that he will never be able to understand this part of Peter’s life. “Peter, don’t you want people to know you for who you are?”

     

    An AU where they get the Gauntlet off of Thanos that first time, on Titan.

    Summary

    It’s there- the tiny, itty-bitty spark of maybe. A dangerous, dangerous idea.

     

    The idea that maybe this isn’t one-sided.

    Summary

    “I won’t,” he said to himself, all those years ago, wondering where the bend in his path happened, and why he always landed here. But he knew, Tony always knew, because even sober he could feel heroin’s delicate tug like a magnet just far enough that Tony could only remember and gnaw on the idea. It pursued him. It always would: a poltergeist that would remain just over his shoulder.

    (And he would never admit it, even to himself, but sometimes Tony imagines taking Peter to a dingy single stall somewhere in Queens to set him on the toilet, arm bared like a meat sacrifice, and put that first needle in him, watch his lids drop, pupils swell, because he finally told him America’s best kept secret, and Peter would never love anything just as much.)

    or: the one where tony falls in love with how peter makes him feel and adulting proves difficult
