    Summary

    “No.” Albarn pushes himself forward, blowing smoke to the narrow space between them. He still has that dopey smile on his face and Liam starts wondering if the smack is really that good, if he should try a proper dose to see what’s the deal about. “People might think we shagged.”

    Summary

    When Peter came to London, Carl was waiting for him under the hanging clock in the middle of Waterloo station. It had been romantic, in the way that Peter saw all their meetings as a little romantic – a song in the making, all Terry meets Julie and a sunset over the river.

    In that moment, every one of his dreams hung, inchoate but irrepressible, on this one dark-haired boy with the fancy name and the rips in his jeans, who held Peter’s whole world on a shoestring.

     

    (An early days sort-of-AU story of Peter & Carl's love affair with London - and each other)

    Summary

    If Jonathan Storm was the movie star Betty said he was, he looked the part: Hair like spun gold in perfect curls atop slender features, with eyes bluer than the Hudson in midsummer. “Normally I’d ask what a dame like you is doing in a place like this, but”—Peter cast a glance up his guest—“you’re not exactly a dame, are you?”

    Storm flashed a weak smile. “I can be, if you want.”

    Peter raised an eyebrow. Storm turned beet-red.

    “I mean. I’m. I didn’t mean that.” Storm huffed and shoved out a hand. “Johnny Storm.”

    ---

    It's 1933, Peter Parker has just shut down a Nazi eugenist and lost one of his oldest friends, and life in the big city is as joyless and hardscrabble as ever. Then Johnny Storm, movie star with a soul made of sunshine, walks through Peter's door, asking for his help. The rest, as they say, is history.
