    Summary

    Waking up in a stranger's bed is not how superhero Johnny Storm planned on spending the morning after the night before.

    From now on…

    A) No more secret hookups with Peter Parker—he's the last man on earth Johnny'd want to share a room with, never mind a king-size bed.

    B) Maintain a professional persona at all times. After all, he's a photographer for New York's #1 Superhero Bashing Rag and Johnny's perfect tabloid fodder.

    C) Keep friends close but enemies closer. Easier said than done, with She-Hulk away on her honeymoon and Spider-Man avoiding him.

    Summary

    To lose a sibling is to lose the one different from you. There’s no one now against whom to say: But I am like this. I am this.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Romantic love always changes, because you have to choose it: over and over and over again. That’s why its so spectacular. Romantic love is the purest form of free will, is the closest thing to paradise on earth that exists, with all the sharp edges and ephemeral beauty that it entails.

    Familial love on the other hand is enduring. In some ways, it is fated. Chance, and not always choice. It lays the foundations to your life, even if you do not like or have ever even met your family. It’s not free will but it is forever.

    Summary

    Julia leaned forward and plucked the card she’d given him from his hand like she was cheating at Go Fish, holding it up so he could see the figure. “The Fool,” she said. “They’re like—the protagonist of the Tarot, or, conversely, maybe its subject. All the other cards—the minor and major arcana—are ways they feel about things, or things that happen to them, or people who they meets along the way who change them.” Her finger tapped the card, indicating the figure’s raised, bell-adorned foot, and the cliff beyond. “The Fool is the beginning of the personal journey. See? One more step takes them over the edge.” 

    “Huh,” said Peter. “Good thing Johnny can fly.”

    Summary

    “Now you are suitable – completely untouched. Pure as new snow. All that trapped fire, in more ways than one… The perfect sacrifice.”

    Johnny’s face had gone bloodless, his mouth hanging open. It took Peter a second for the reason to catch up to him, busy as he was, but then it hit him like the proverbial freight train: he’d said it himself, after all. He made a poor sacrifice because he wasn’t a virgin.

    Johnny, apparently, was.

    --

    An encounter with some cultists leads Peter to an interesting revelation about Johnny that he can't stop thinking about. Another encounter at Security College gives him something to do about it.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Who knows what could have happened to him? He could have ended up sitting naked in any vigilante’s lap. Peter’s hand slid to the small of his back, unsure how he’d ended up being the lucky one. Once again it sucked to be Daredevil.
