    Summary

    “Okay,” Peter says, and he grabs Tony’s wrist. “Okay but I’m actively escaping. At the moment. That’s what I’m doing, at the moment, and that’s what I’m doing. Right now.” He lets out a little huff. “So that’s what I’m doing.”

    “Yup,” Tony says. “A bang-up job.”

    “Thank you.”

    “You’re really killing it.”

    “I know.”

    Tony is nervous, because the kid is slurring and he’s severely loopy and that can only mean drugs. Were they to keep him docile? Were they to fucking experiment on him? Tony’s not in the suit anymore so he can’t see his heart rate but he knows it’s probably skyrocketing.

    Summary

    “You know, you could always just tell everyone that you lost the internship. I mean, that's what you told Liz, right?”

    Peter nodded, slowly.

    “And it wouldn’t really be a lie. You used to work with Mr. Stark and now you don’t.”

    And now you don’t, the phrase rang out.

    It hurt him to hear it so simply put. But he couldn't argue that it was true. Peter got to keep the suit, but lost the genius, who built it for him.

    -----------

    Mr. Harrington announced that Peter's class would be attending a field trip to Stark Tower. The place that Peter had allegedly been interning at for months. It would be great, except that Peter has no internship and refuses to burden Mr. Stark with his problems any longer.

    Summary

    Homecoming A/U.

    Ben and May divorced before Peter’s parents died, so when Ben is murdered Peter goes into foster care. It takes just a tiny taste of superpowers for Peter to decide he doesn’t want to put up with his horrible foster father anymore—the streets are infinitely more appealing. All he wants is to be Spider-Man anyway.

    So he leaves.

    Simple.

    Simple, that is, until Iron Man needs Spider-Man’s help. Peter isn’t about to turn down an opportunity to fight alongside Tony Freaking Stark, but he also isn’t going to let his hero know that his recruit is a fifteen-year-old homeless dropout. So they strike a deal. Peter will help Tony. In return, the mask stays on.

    And that’s when things get complicated.

    Summary

    After the deaths of his parents, Peter Parker—along with his two other siblings—were put under the care of his alcoholic aunt. Twelve years later, Peter is juggling life as a sixteen-year-old caretaker of his four cousins, a prodigious student, and a Pizza King employee. Oh yeah, and he’s Spider-Man.

    As things start to unfurl, Tony Stark—Peter’s mentor—starts to suspect some issues at home. Peter can’t let his role model know anything or else he risks losing their budding relationship or, more importantly, his family.

    ____

     

    TLDR: Aunt May sucks, Peter has to pick up the slack because she’s not only his guardian, but the guardian of his two other siblings & her own four kids. Peter is trying his best. Tony wants to help.

    Summary

    Tony Stark is convinced by his family friend Obadiah Stane to adopt a kid in order to improve the tarnished image of Stark Industries. The media always loves a soft, single dad, so it's perfect to get the PR they need. Pepper is enraged. Rhodey is disappointed. Happy is confused. All of this, Tony expected.

    What he doesn't expect is to bring home a kind-hearted, intelligent, four-year-old kid named Peter who slowly gets him to come out of his egocentric shell.
