Characters: May & Peter Parker, Ben Parker
Words: 1193
Summary: In the aftermath of Ben’s death, Peter and May talk about their regrets. 

It’s been three and a half months since Ben’s death, and some family friends are treating Peter and May to dinner on a Friday night.  

Peter’s been slumped into the corner of the couch ever since he came home from school when May sits on the other end, planning to remind him about the dinner engagement. But she can tell by the look in his eyes that he’s not currently in a place to discuss social commitments.

“What’s going on, baby? How are you feeling?”

Peter is staring straight ahead, hands folded and forearms resting on his knees.

fuck yes my time has come ilyt

  • ben absolutely loves old movies. black-and-whites are his particular favorites, and he loves casablanca most of all, but he also loves those old musicals like seven brides for seven brothers and singin’ in the rain (tony always falls asleep when they watch them together and that makes them even better in ben’s eyes because he loves watching tony sleep.)
  • follow-up, keeping with the movie theme: ben only ever eats popcorn when the tv is on and he falls asleep anytime he tries to watch a tv show. he can stay awake for 3 hour movies but not for 40 minute episodes, and it’s his worst personality trait. may absolutely loathes it, she just wants to watch bake off, wake up benjamin. (bob ross is the exception. ben loves bob ross.)
  • he loves sunrises more than sunsets because they represent new beginnings and he’s. big on the idea of beginnings, on the idea that people can change and grow, and he also sees beginnings as the ability to start over and try again and 
  • sunrises are also his second-favorite thing to paint, second only to people, because he loves painting people. people-watching is one of his favorite things, because he likes imagining the stories of their lives that one can only get a glimpse of. 
  • he boxed, all throughout high school, alongside richie, and so as a result he has scars from his boxing matches and he’s probably broken his nose at least three times. (peter took up boxing when he was younger and had a lot of pent-up anger, because ben knew it was a good outlet for his kid.)
  • ben never yells when he’s angry. it’s really important to his character. he never yells. he gets angry, he’s human, but he never yells. (he also tends to speak softly most of the time, because he’s 6′4, reasonably muscular, and he doesn’t want to be intimidating.)
  • he gets frequent migraines, that last him all day, and on those days he tends to just. make some tea and cuddle in with any family member who will let him be clingy and bury his face in their stomach. no one is safe. 
  • his family always comes first. always. above himself, above the world, always. the best way to describe it is: if someone’s saying shit to him he’ll shut up and take it but if someone’s saying shit about any of the people he loves, they’re dead
  • however, as a follow-up: he always wants to help people. he’s a firefighter, and a bartender, and an artist, because he wants to help people and create and make connections (creating is at the core of his beliefs, comes before even helping people, but they go hand-in-hand, because his goal as an artist is to find the humanity in the small things and make connections to people who don’t expect to find themselves in art) 
  • in college, he handwrote every single one of his papers, and continues to do all his paperwork by hand, because he does not do good with technology. (his relationship with tony is interesting). 
  • some food things: he drinks coffee, but he doesn’t like it, and it needs to have exactly one sugar cube in it, and be before six in the morning, or he won’t drink it. he puts sriracha on his ice cream (specifically rocky road) because he’s a freak. he hates jell-o because it’s terrifying. he brings bread to central park to feed to the ducks but then he ends up eating it himself. he absolutely loves chocolate, but not white chocolate. fuck that shit. (he also can bake very well, but cannot cook for shit, although he’s better than may. peter suffered growing up, it’s why he got so close to delmar.) 
  • an incomplete list of things that make ben parker cry: rainy days, paintings in warm tones, overgrown flower gardens, the elton john song “your song,” sunrises that make the world feel quiet, cats with multi-color splotches (it’s just because he’s allergic, shut up richie), those videos of families being reunited on youtube with bad quality (he leaves comments on every single one), the smile tony gives him and only him, looking at baby photos of peter (and all of peter’s awful art pieces growing up), slow dancing in the kitchen with his qpp may, reading old stories from queer people throughout history and realizing how much love he holds for the world 
  • (peter called ben dad once after richie’s death and ben wouldn’t stop crying for days. they still don’t know if they were happy or sad tears, so peter doesn’t call ben dad anymore, and ben’s okay with that. he doesn’t need to replace his brother, he can’t replace his brother.)

Prompt #16: “I never wanted anything else” 
Fandom: Spider-Man (MCU)
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Characters: Ben & Peter Parker, May Parker/Ben Parker, OCs Cleo and Mark Hudson. 
Words: 2805
Summary: Raising Peter has brought some financial strain into Ben and May’s lives, but they wouldn’t have it any other way. 
Author’s Note: This fic is to blame for my inability to catch up on these prompts. It was supposed to be nice and short, but ended up being quite the one-shot in length. Whoops. 
Also, Peter going for a sleepover at a science museum was 100% inspired by my favorite field trip from elementary school. We really did get to camp out in the exhibits, and it was as amazing as it sounds. 

Incalculable Worth  

Cleo and Mark are coming over for the weekend, and Ben’s not looking forward to it.

“It’ll go by fast,” May insists the Monday before, “It’s not even three full days. Besides, it’ll be good for them to see Peter again—it’s been years, he’s probably unrecognizable to them at this point.”

Ben knows she’s right, and it will be good to see Cleo and Mark again, the couple who served as the Maid of Honor and Best Man at their wedding. They were best friends with the pair before moving to New York, and staying in touch has been difficult ever since. So when Cleo and Mark announced they were planning a visit to the city, May enthusiastically offered to let them stay at the apartment.

But if Ben’s honest, he just doesn’t feel much of a connection with the couple anymore. When the two of them were in his and May’s wedding, they had so much in common. They all loved traveling, trying foods from various cultures, and seeking out new experiences on weekend trips. Then there was the shared life plans that truly brought them together in the first place—neither couple had a desire to be parents one day.

Ben knew it wasn’t fair to Cleo and Mark to resent them for doing what they’d always said they’d do—living a carefree, kid-less life—but the fact that they were living out their plan while May and Ben had Peter made it harder to relate to the couple.

“I just feel bad that we don’t even have a room for them,” Ben says. “That’s my main concern.”

“Do you think it’s time for me to change my car? This model is from like a year ago and, I don’t know, it doesn’t give me the ‘genius multimillionaire’ you know?” Tony said as Peter put on his seatbelt. Then he just scoffed
“Don’t you have a full collection of every single car out there?” Peter says and Tony shrugs
“I mean yeah, but there’s always room for an upgrade” Tony said while driving.
“Then just take it to the lab. You can always upgrade it there” Peter said


Thirty six

Thirty six heartbeats

Thirty six heartbeats that he could hear at the moment

Yet none of them were hers

But he couldn’t. Because there was no heartbeat

When babies are born they develop the ability to recognize their mother’s heartbeat because it reminds them of when they were inside of her, but as they grow up they just don’t use it anymore. With the spider bite, Peter developed that heartbeat. He could recognize her heartbeat anywhere, yet out of thirty six people that were in the scene there was no heartbeat such as hers. And he will never hear her heartbeat ever again. His life was for the second time and the responsible was the same person.

He was sitting on the sidewalk looking at the exact spot where it happened when a police officer interrupted his panic attack. She asked him the usual stuff, like his name, if he had somewhere to stay, what happened, etcetera. The officer dropped Peter in his department and told Ben the news. When the officer left they didn’t talk. Peter locked himself in his room and from there he could hear Ben crying and yelling. This is all his fault.

The days passed. He is not answering anybody’s calls. He is not going to school. The only thing constant in Peter’s life right now is regret. How could he do this? He was a killer. He got away with murder. It’s only been a week and he doesn’t feel any better. Instead of overthinking it he goes out as Spiderman again. It was a normal patrol. He didn’t get much done, and he tried to respect his curfew, however he was fifteen minutes late. He couldn’t sneak in by his window because Ben would notice that he left from the front door and didn’t use it to come in, so instead he goes in the alley next to Peter’s apartment and changes clothes there. Then he goes in using the front door. The vibe in his apartment changed since the funeral. It doesn’t feel like a home anymore. Doesn’t smell like it either

Ben was on the couch, a few empty beer bottles were on the coffee table, but nothing to be concerned about. They haven’t talked since the funeral, but Peter didn’t really care. He was too busy grieving over May and thinking how he just became a murderer. But that day, Ben finally talked to him

“They fired me from my job” Ben said. Peter didn’t know how to react

“I am sorry to hear that. You’ll get a new one soon” Peter says softly

“You have a curfew Peter” Ben said and Peter rolled his eyes

“I lost track of time” Peter says walking towards his room

“You don’t get to ‘lose track of time’ anymore. You killed her last time that happened” Peter freezes right where he is at. Did Ben really just say that or was it his imagination? Ben normally is the one that hyped Peter when bad stuff was happening. Peter turned around to see Ben, who was now drinking from one of the bottles. Peter had to admit that he was kinda jealous because after all, if Peter could get drunk, he would be far gone. Ben finished the beer and placed the bottle on the coffee table next to the others “If you are past your curfew ever again, I’ll make your life hell” Ben said. Peter just raised an eyebrow and then locked himself in his room. He was just drunk. He didn’t mean it. Ben would never. Ben loved Peter

When Peter was finally alone, he took his phone out of his backpack and in a matter of seconds, it rang. Peter answered this time

“Hello?” Peter asked

“Kid! How is prison treating you? How long till you get out?” That was Tony. He forgot to tell Tony

“What?” It’s all Peter managed to say

“I figured you were grounded. Haven’t heard from you in a while” Tony says and Peter sights

“Yeah there are gonna be changes now” Peter says thinking out loud

“Is that so?” Peter was about to tell him what happened but then something made him stop. Tony will think that he is a murderer. Just like Ben does. He didn’t want that

“Ben found out about the internship. I can’t stay the weekends anymore” Peter said managing to make it sound convincing

“Ugh. That really sucks” Tony says and Peter shrugs

“I can still go to the internship and stay the night on Wednesdays” Peter says. Normally he is bad at lying, but this time he was nailing it

“Hey that is cool! Better than nothing. This is Rhodey’s last week here before he has to go do whatever it is that he does on a regular basis. We can all watch a movie that day. What do you say” Peter looks at himself in the mirror of his room before answering

“Yeah. Sounds fun” Peter says lying

“Great. See you on Wednesday!” Then Tony hangs up. He just lied to Tony Stark. And it wasn’t a ‘I didn’t take the fruit snacks’ kind of lie. It was the ‘I got away with murder’ kind of lie. He doesn’t lie to him very often, and when he does he always gets caught.

The next day he finally decided to go back to school. When MJ and Ned asked what happened to him, he said that he had internship stuff to do. Normally MJ was the first one to notice when he was lying, but now she just believed him, or at least it seemed like it. Ned didn’t even question him, he was just happy that he was back. Peter didn’t want to think a lot about it, but he couldn’t help but think that they didn’t care enough

‘You don’t get to ‘lose track of time’ anymore. You killed her last time that happened’

After class he went out as Spiderman again. Mostly because it let him escape from reality. That he was the bad guy. He tried to respect his curfew today. He wanted to talk to Ben. He didn’t know about what but he wanted to talk to his uncle just as he used to do. When he opened the door the beer smell was more intense than yesterday. What this morning were five or six bottles on the coffee table, there were now at least twenty bottles and at least fifty cans on the floor. Ben was watching tv while drinking.

“I am home” Peter said almost whispering but loud enough for Ben to hear.

“You know what I have been thinking of?” Peter raised an eyebrow when he heard Ben’s voice crack “You didn’t deserve her” Peter closed the front door and stayed quiet because it seemed like Ben wanted to keep going “We didn’t want kids. It was just me and her against the world. Then Richard was stupid enough to get himself killed and we got stuck with you” Peter wanted to say something. He wanted to prove him wrong. But everything he said was true. May told him that they didn’t want kids but ‘She didn’t mind having him around’. He just let Ben talk “I raised you as if you were mine. She never liked you. She didn’t love you enough. But that doesn’t mean you could kill her. She was a good person. Not like you” Ben said. Peter was trying to convince himself that it wasn’t him. That It was an accident. But Ben made sure that he didn’t forget his sins. That night Peter cried till he fell asleep.

The next day Peter woke up and didn’t feel so good. He had that feeling that people feel when they have nightmares but don’t wake up in the middle of the night. Lucky for him he couldn’t remember what his nightmare was about. He got dressed and went to school. He didn’t see Ben in his department when he left. School wasn’t that bad. He was lucky enough to survive without getting eating alive by his own thoughts

When school ended all he wanted was to be alone. He had so much feelings trapped inside him and all he wanted to do was to ignore every single one of it in peace. Then again he realized that it wouldn’t be possible today when he saw the black Audi in front of his school. He just rolled his eyes and got in the car

“Do you think it’s time for me to change my car? This model is from like a year ago and, I don’t know, it doesn’t give me the 'genius multimillionaire’ you know?” Tony said as Peter put on his seatbelt. Then he just scoffed

“Don’t you have a full collection of every single car out there?” Peter says and Tony shrugs

“I mean yeah, but there’s always room for an upgrade” Tony said while driving.

“Then just take it to the lab. You can always upgrade it there” Peter said

“Yeah maybe I’ll do that. You can help me if you want to. Today we also need to solve a little problem that I’ve been having” Peter raised an eyebrow. Did he find out already? “So the day your time in jail started, I went to this meeting with Ross, and he says that the only thing holding us back to finish with the accords bullshit is spider man’s signature” Peter’s eyes widened. After Germany he read the accords. He even made annotations. He was curious after all

“I can’t just sign as ‘Spiderman’, can I?” Peter asked and Tony scoffed

“Even if that was an option you still can’t sign. You are underage. But if I say that people will start connecting the dots and no more secret identity” Tony says

“You don’t have any idea of what to say, do you?” Peter asks and Tony rolls his eyes

“Quit the sass. This is serious” Tony says and Peter raises an eyebrow

“We could say that I already signed. There are at least a hundred signatures there. We could perfectly say that I already signed but didn’t tell anybody. They will think that Spiderman is one of the people that already signed. Then when I turn eighteen I can sign because, I don’t know, I changed my name or something. We can figure that out later” Tony opened his mouth to argue but he couldn’t find anything wrong in his logic

“That might actually work” Tony says squinting

“It’s great that the accords won’t be a problem anymore. No more avengers meetings” Peter said. Tony shrugged and then smiled. Peter knew that meant something, but he didn’t want to know. At least not now

“So what do you want to do today?” Tony asked

“I don’t know. I Don’t feel like doing anything. This week has been horrible and this is kinda the best part so far” Peter admitted

“Damn. Ok then. We can go to the lab another day. We are actually having dinner with Pepper today. I am making lasagna” Tony said.

“I like your lasagna” Peter admits murmuring. Tony makes Peter feel safe. Peter didn’t want that to end. If Tony found out about what happened, he won’t ever want to speak to Peter again. It was selfish from Peter’s part because Tony deserved the truth. Peter didn’t deserve Tony at all. Tony has experience being friends with the bad guy of the story. In Peter’s side of the story, he was now the bad guy

Their afternoon was great. Peter, Tony and Rhodey played Mario Kart. Then when Pepper arrived Tony and her started making the lasagna while Rhodey and Peter played uno. Then they all had dinner. Tony was happy. He feels a little guilty because Peter can’t stay on weekends anymore, but he’s glad it didn’t cause too much trouble even though Peter seems off. Maybe he just had a rough week. The point is that for Tony it feels right. When his parents were alive he didn’t feel shit. Family was not a concept in Tony’s mind at that moment. Then he met Pepper and he felt like he had a place in the world. Then the avengers came to his life. That’s when he first felt like he was part of something but he didn’t know how to define it. Unfortunately they stabbed him in the back, but the feeling didn’t last long because after that he let a little spider into his life. It felt like when he was with his mom, or with the avengers, but better. He wasn’t always afraid that it would end. Peter was his family.

After dinner Peter went to patrol and Rhodey went to sleep. Tony and Pepper were left alone in the balcony where Peter jumped off to be a hero

“Something is off with him” Pepper says looking at the city. Tony raises an eyebrow

“You think?”

“He is normally a little more bubbly and energetic. Today it felt like he was grieving or something like that” Tony scoffed. He knew that Pepper was joking but if that was the situation, Tony was sure that Peter would tell him

“He told me he had a rough week. Nobody likes being grounded” Pepper shrugs

“I guess you are right. Did you talk to him about the-”

“Accords? Yeah I did. We have it all figured it out” Tony says with a smile and then Pepper places a kiss on his cheek

“Peter made you a softie” Pepper said and Tony gasped in fake disbelief “He did! You’ve changed a lot since he’s been around”

“I have no idea what you are talking about” Tony says and Pepper laughs

“Don’t get me wrong. I like this Tony ten times better” Pepper said and Tony smiled

“You are ok too I guess” Tony says jokingly and Pepper just rolls her eyes

“Shut up” And then Tony kissed her

“I stayed at Ned’s! Like most weekends! You know that!” Peter finally yelled back. May was constantly trying to make them stop yelling but they were too busy arguing
“Oh really? That is funny because I called Ned’s mom yesterday! You didn’t stay there this weekend, or any other weekend!” Peter’s eyes widened. Now he was in actual trouble
“Where do you think I was, Ben?! You tell me now that it seems like you know everything!” Ben’s yaw dropped
“Do not talk to me with that tone young man!” Right. Peter forgot. He is arguing with Ben, not Tony. Normally Tony would just answer him with a similar comment. Ben avoided any kind of logic just to seem like he was right. Peter thought it was dumb because that just assures Peter that he, in fact, outsmarted Ben
“God, this is easier with Tony” Peter murmured. He regretted it by the second it came out of his mouth

Friday, August ten. Two thousand one. The US president was George W. Bush. He was a republican. The UK Prime Minister was Tony Blair. The Pope St John Paul II was leading the Catholic Church. Lots of things happened that day. The number one song in the US on the day of your birth was “Bootylicious” by Destiny’s Child. Ask your parents if they remember this popular song. The Los Angeles Lakers beat Philadelphia 76ers (4 - 1) to win the NBA Finals that day. But something else really interesting happened that most of the world doesn’t know about.

On the Afternoon of Friday, August ten in the city of New York, Peter Parker was born

And since then, the universe decided that their new favorite thing was to make his life miserable

Good thing Peter always knew how to say ‘fuck you’ to the universe

So when Peter woke up the day after feeling like he had another sensory overload on his sleep, he wasn’t surprised at all. He got dressed for school and went downstairs, but what Peter found was something that he didn’t see very often. Pepper was having breakfast in the kitchen. For Peter that was weird. She normally takes her coffee and goes straight to her office downstairs in SI. Today she was sitting in the kitchen counter drinking her coffee. Tony was in the other side making his coffee and Rhodey was looking for something in the fridge

“Good morning” Peter said hesitantly. Everyone  turned to see him

“Peter. We were waiting for you” Pepper said with a smile. Peter raised an eyebrow because that was her passive aggressive smile. Pepper was mad at someone “How are you feeling? Better?”

‘Y-Yeah’” Peter was scared for his life. He turned to see Tony, but Tony immediately started pouring his coffee

“That’s good honey. So yesterday, after you fell asleep, Tony wanted to tell you something but he didn’t get the chance” After Pepper said that Tony’s eyes widened

“You know, I forgot! Sorry kid-”

“Tony!” Pepper yelled and Tony sighted

“Ok the truth is that I fucked up. Like I fucked up big time” Tony finally accepts. Peter raises an eyebrow in sense of confusion

“Did you drink one of Dum-E’s smoothies again?” Rhodes chuckles at that answer

“So yesterday when I called May, she didn’t answer. So I kinda called Ben” Tony says that and Peter just tilts his head. Sometimes he was hard to read and Tony hated that

“And what did you tell him?” Peter sounded so calm. Tony actually believed that he wouldn’t be mad

“Well I didn’t have lots of options at the time, so I told him that you were in a party and came here because it was closer than your department” A thick silence follows that. Peter sights and pulls Tony’s shirt to his level

“What the hell is wrong with you?!” Peter yells at Tony and then lets go of his shirt “Are you kidding me Tony?! He’s gonna ground me for something I didn’t do!! Thanks a lot!!” Peter yelled

“I’m sorry, was I the guy that decided not to answer their calls?! No I fucking wasn’t!! Tony said leaving his mug in the kitchen counter

“Because you told me not to! You told me to not use my phone while swinging around and you also told me you’ll put my phone my phone in the fucking suit!” Peter yelled

“Yeah and I am doing it at the same time I’ll update Karen so she can drop you off a building when you’re past your curfew again!” Tony yelled back. Peter just groaned

“Get over it! I was saving people! What were you doing then? Making another super killer robot?!” Tony literally gasped. Rhodey raised an eyebrow at that comment. Pepper was already used to this

“Boys, stop it. Both of you” Pepper said and they both turned to look at her “Both of you did wrong. Peter you have a curfew for a reason and Tony you should’ve said something less stupid. Now this is what is gonna happen. I am gonna call May and tell her that you just wanted to spend another night here. Pray that that’s enough to get you out of trouble” Peter and Tony looked at each other and then they both sighted

“Sorry bud” Tony says ruffling Peter’s curls

‘It’s ok Mr. Stark. Besides, May will talk to Ben. I’ll maybe get grounded but I deserve it. Sorry for ignoring my curfew” Peter then smiles apologetic and Tony smiles in reply

“Wait a damn minute” Rhodey said closing the fridge “Less than thirty seconds ago you guys were gonna kill each other” Peter raises an eyebrow

“No, not really” Peter says looking at Tony

“Yeah. I mean it was just an argument” tony adds. Rhodey just looks at Pepper and she nodded her head. Apparently this was normal for them. Huh

“Come on kid. Let’s wait for Happy in the lab” Tony says grabbing his coffee mug

“Oh I forgot to tell you Tony. I am taking Happy with me to England” Pepper says and gets up. Before Tony could say anything, she is already gone

“Damn. Well I suppose that I’ll drive you to school” Tony says and Peter raises an eyebrow

“Mr. Stark you have a meeting today. An important one. The secretary of state is gonna chop your head off if you don’t go to this one” Peter says and Tony groans

“The secretary of state is the reason I am avoiding the meeting in the first place. How do you even know that I have a meeting?” Tony asks and Peter shrugs

“You don’t have an assistant but you do have an intern. The fact that I actually get to do stuff doesn’t mean I don’t so the usual intern stuff” Tony raises an eyebrow

“You do realize you don’t get paid for doing any of that stuff, right?“ Peter then smiles

"Oh Mr. Stark. Don’t get the wrong idea. Someone needs to write my recommendation letter when I try to get to MIT” Tony dramatically opened his jaw as if he had been insulted

“You little shit. And just so you know, I like having you around too. Now, we have to figure it out. Who is gonna take you to school?” Before Peter could answer, Rhodes hoped in

“I can drive him” Peter raises an eyebrow “Yeah. I need to do some stuff anyways. I’ll drive him” Tony sights

“Sure. Ok. If you want to” Tony answers. Peter then nodded hesitantly

“Thanks for driving me Colonel Rhodes” Peter said putting his seat belt on

“No problem kid. I actually wanted to get to know you-” Peter scoffed as if someone just made a bad joke. Rhodey just raised an eyebrow “What?”

“With all due respect Colonel Rhodes, Ms. Potts already did this a while ago. You find really weird that Mr. Stark is close with a teenager. The only thing that crosses your mind  is ‘What is the catch?’ and too that I have to say that I don’t know. After Germany, Mr. Stark had no reason to keep me around, yet he did” Peter said with a smile. Rhodey could sense that Peter wasn’t trying to be rude at all. That he just wanted to tell the truth. And as a matter of fact, Peter was right. Rhodey did think there was something going on. Instead of argue with Peter, he just sighted

“Well now I actually want to get to know you kid. And cut the Colonel Rhodes crap. Rhodey or Rhodes it’s fine” Rhodey said turning on the engine of the car

“Whatever you say Mr. Rhodes” Peter said and Rhodey just shook his head. Turns out that Rhodey actually likes the kid. He could see why Tony liked the kid. He also could see that the kid liked Tony very much

Today was a pretty good day for Peter actually. He was going to Ned’s house tomorrow to make a Lego set (The new Spider-Man Lego set. Epic) and he did good in the decathlon practice. It was a great day. After School he took the subway and went to his department

“I am home!” Peter said, opening the door. As always he walked to the Livingroom to put his stuff on the couch and then met with Ben and May at the kitchen, but to Peter’s surprise, Ben and May were in the Livingroom waiting for him “Hey guys. What is going on?”

“Peter Benjamin Parker, you have some explaining to do” Ben said almost yelling. Then Peter remembered. Tony said he went to a party. Right “Yesterday your aunt and I were worried sick about you. And in the middle of the night, Tony fucking Stark calls me and tells me that you were on a party?!? What the hell?!” Before Peter could defend himself, Ben kept yelling “I am gonna ask you this and don’t even try to fill me with your bullshit. Where were you this weekend?!”

“I stayed at Ned’s! Like most weekends! You know that!” Peter finally yelled back. May was constantly trying to make them stop yelling but they were too busy arguing

“Oh really? That is funny because I called Ned’s mom yesterday! You didn’t stay there this weekend, or any other weekend!” Peter’s eyes widened. Now he was in actual trouble

“Where do you think I was, Ben?! You tell me now that it seems like you know everything!” Ben’s yaw dropped

“Do not talk to me with that tone young man!” Right. Peter forgot. He is arguing with Ben, not Tony. Normally Tony would just answer him with a similar comment. Ben avoided any kind of logic just to seem like he was right. Peter thought it was dumb because that just assures Peter that he, in fact, outsmarted Ben

“God, this is easier with Tony” Peter murmured. He regretted it by the second it came out of his mouth

“How would you know?! You’re just his intern! I am your uncle and I am the one taking care of you-” Peter then snapped

“Hate to break it to you, Ben! But as a matter of fact, I’ve been staying at the Stark Tower! Sometimes even at the compound! You haven’t been taking care of me for the past four months! Mr. Stark and Ms Potts have! Hell, even May has been taking better care of me than you! And you want to know why?! Because you’ve been busy looking for excuses to yell at May instead of looking at the people around you!” Peter finally yells. Even May is speechless. Peter has never talked to them like that. That was how he normally argued with Tony. He thought it was ok

“You really expect me to believe that Tony Stark welcomed you in his house to stay in the weekends? What else does he do? Watch movies with you?!” When Ben said that it sounded almost as if he was making fun of Peter

“Yes actually! For your information, Mr. Stark likes finding Nemo!” Ben raises an eyebrow and Peter sights “May even knows about it! You are the only one that doesn’t know! How does that make you feel, Ben?!” Ben turns to see May

“Is this true?” Ben finally asks. May shrugs

“Ben, you hate Tony, but Peter doesn’t! And Tony actually enjoys spending time with Peter! I don’t see anything wrong with that” May finally says. Ben’s eyes widened

“I cannot believe it! You are in so much trouble Peter!” Peter rolls his eyes

“You know what?! Fine! See if I care!” And Peter finally decides to turn around, open the door, and leave their department. That’s when May started yelling

“Ben what the hell is wrong with you?! I told you to not be too hard on him!’ May yells

“That was before I found out that he’s been lying to me! And you too! You didn’t think that I would like to know where he is staying?!” Ben yells at her

“Well I told you and look how everything ended up! You will apologize to him!” May demanded

“Can’t you see it?! This is all Stark’s fault! He didn’t answer me like that before!” Ben yelled

“So what?! You are mad because Tony gave Peter confidence?! Because he was taking care of him?!” May yells

“I know what I am doing!” Ben yells and May groans

“Go look for him right now!” May demands and Ben scoffed

“Relax! If he thinks he can handle himself then let him do it! I bet he is gonna call us in like five minutes crying in some dark alley because he is scared” May couldn’t believe what her husband was saying. Instead of arguing more, she grabbed her jacket and keys and went to look for Peter

He just needed to breathe. He got a little overwhelmed and he didn’t want to cause another sensory overload. The number has been increasing more and more lately. He was gonna be ok. It was late at night. Not many people were out. He was walking through the streets of Queens at almost midnight. If Peter wasn’t Spiderman, he would be scared of getting mugged or something

He was in front of a gas station sitting on a bench looking at the street. A guy was in the other side of the gas station smoking. Peter just waved at him and kept minding his own business.

“Peter?” He hears from next to him. He turned to see who was calling and there was Aunt May with her jacket. After a few seconds she walked towards Peter and hugged him “Oh thank god! You almost gave me a heart attack!” May says and Peter just smiles

“I’m fine May. I just needed some air” Peter said and May ruffled his curls

“Peter, Ben wants to apologize, ok? But I feel like you should apologize too” Peter widened his eyes

“Is that so?” Peter says amused

“I’m serious! He shouldn’t have yelled, but we shouldn’t have lied to him. Yesterday he was so worried about you. Not even I knew where you were. Then Pepper calls me to tell me you stayed for more internship stuff, which I get, but you should’ve told me. And we should’ve told him everything since it all started” May says and Peter sighted. He knew she was right

“Ok. You’re right. I will apologize or something” Peter said and she smiled

“What do you say we go home and order some takeout?” May offered and Peter just got up. They started walking towards their apartment and they were talking about Peter’s weekend

“You always have so much fun there! I wish Pepper didn’t have that tight schedule. I like hanging out with her” May says and Peter laughs

“Ms. Potts is great! She is really nice” Peter said

“You know, I was thinking maybe you could spend the summer with them. Just if you want to, obviously. We don’t have any plans and I bet Tony wouldn’t mind adding you to whatever he wants to do” May says and Peter raises an eyebrow

“Mr. Stark’s plans are always a little too much. Also I like spending time with you guys” Peter says. He kept walking and then there was a loud sound. It turned on every sense. He wasn’t sure what was going to happen. Hell, he wasn’t sure what was happening at the moment. He turned to see May. On the floor. A bullet wound in her neck. Blood all over the place.

Peter Parker was born in 2001. Since 2001 the universe had a new purpose: Fuck with Peter Parker. Peter was good at looking at the universe face and say 'fuck you’ because he always stood up after he fell

But this?

This is where he finally breaks

And this is how it starts

Marisa confirmed that May and Peter are not blood relatives. 

“He’s 15 in this movie. I ended up picking the brains of my brother Adam, who’s been an encyclopedia of Marvel since we were little, and he explained that May’s not related to Peter by blood—she’s his aunt by marriage to his uncle Ben. So she could be elderly or pretty young, depending what age she met her husband.” -Marisa Tomei.

Ben is implied twice in the movies. One, when Peter warns Ned that May has been through some things and in FFH you can see his initials on Peter’s suitcase. The writers also confirmed that Peter went to the Homecoming dance wearing Ben’s suit.

bennyyyy boo boo okay here we go how do i write ben

one: his family is the most important thing in the world to him, and that means they always come first over his needs. in aus where he isn’t. dead. or in a coma. he puts peter and may (and tony and richie and mary) first over everything and basically the best scenario i can come up with to describe him is. if someone’s saying shit to him he’ll shut up and take it but if someone’s saying shit about any of the people he loves, they’re dead

two: this is a. small one. but it’s like. very central to his character? even though i don’t explicitly write it it’s helped me characterize him even better and it’s: he never yells when he’s angry which basically uhh translates to he puts others first but like? differently i guess i just. keep that in mind a lot when i’m writing him

three: creating is at the core of his beliefs as in- he wants to help people but first and foremost he wants to create which causes an interesting dichotomy to both tony and peter’s “first help, then create” since in my mind ben’s painting/love of art is where peter’s love of photography comes from but then also that gives me

four: he wants! to help people! i write him as a firefighter a lot because i’m a simple woman but also because it just. ties into who he is and who he is is wanting to help people 

send me a character and i’ll tell you 3+ major things i use to write them

 “Please tell me you’re some kid that broke into the lab and not Tony that found out a way to make himself look as if he was in college again” Peter hesitated in half confusion. The man knew Tony so he knows the dumb stuff he can pull off

“That is actually a good idea honey bear” Colonel Rhodes turned around to see Tony entering behind him “Wish I thought of that”

“So you instead cloned yourself and made him look younger” Tony raised an eyebrow in amusement. Peter was internally screaming and thinking where is a good place where he can immigrate to not be found ever again


Peter was swinging through the city of New York. From building to building you could see Spiderman moving through the air.  There was no feeling compared to that. It let him escape from reality for a while but not long enough to make everything else less real. Some said that it wasn’t safe how high he went sometimes, but Peter was sure that they were just jealous that he always got the best view. New York city at night could be a beautiful thing and Peter recognized it. Peter loved it.

“Peter can I speak to you?” Peter recognized Karen.

“Sure. What’s up? You’ve been kinda quiet today” Peter said trying to catch his breath

“You might want to start heading to the Tower. It’s almost your curfew” Peter sighted. He was on top of a roof looking for crime but turns out he’s too good at his job. He gave a last look at the streets and then nodded

“Let’s go to the tower then. Hey do you know if Mr. Stark ordered food? Or should we go to Delmar’s while I’m at it?” And with that said Peter shot his web and started swinging through every building. He already knew the drill. He went by Delmar’s and got a sandwich, then looked for his backpack, and then finally he arrived at the Avengers Tower’s balcony. He went inside and took off his mask. Then he dropped himself in the couch

“Well that’s a first” Peter turned to see Tony in the kitchen drinking coffee “You’re not late for the first time in like two months” Peter then rolled his eyes

“Can we go finish your suit update?” Peter asked and Tony chuckled

“Buddy I don’t know if you noticed but it’s late. And someone is coming tomorrow so I want you to get sleep. I have to introduce you” Peter scoffs

“I’m not even tired. And you say it as if you were gonna sleep tonight. I can smell the coffee from here” Peter added and Tony’s jaw dropped

“Oh I see. Just so you know, nobody likes a smartass” Peter raised an eyebrow

“You must hate yourself then” Tony opened his jaw to answer but instead he sipped from his coffee mug. Peter laughed

“You know what? I’ll sleep if you sleep. Is that fair enough for you?” Peter then smiled victorious

“Yeah. Let’s watch a movie though. I want to watch Moana again. I’ll go change” Tony didn’t argue so Peter took that as a yes. He went quickly to his room and started changing his clothes. He did suddenly realize that he doesn’t have a shirt. Maybe he left it at his department, maybe someone took it from his backpack, maybe he dropped it somewhere. Either way he didn’t have anything to wear on top, so he improvised. He put on the spider suit, and put his pants on top of it. He got to the living room and sat next to Tony

“What is that?” Tony immediately asked. Peter raised an eyebrow implying that he had no idea what Tony meant “You know what I mean Pete. Why do you still have the spider suit on?” Peter scoffed

“Funny how I wasn’t aware that I needed permission to wear the Spiderman suit even though I am Spiderman” Tony raised an eyebrow “I just felt like I could make the person that made the suit feel happy ok? I wanted to make sure that you knew how much does that mean to me” Tony immediately glared at Peter who shrugged “I mean it! Karen is the best AI on earth, even better than FRI like it or not and I get to have her in my suit with lots of other cool stuff. It means a lot” Tony then blinked and stared at Peter

“Ok then” And finally Tony played the movie. It took another few seconds for him to actually ask “So what is the actual reason?”

“I forgot my shirt and I am cold” Peter said quickly. Tony laughed and shook his head. He stood up and went to the kitchen to look for the hoodie that was sitting in there and he threw it at Peter “Rude”

“Just put it on kid. Tomorrow we’re doing laundry” Tony said sitting next to Peter who rolled his eyes

“You mean someone is gonna do the laundry. Do you even know how to do it?” Peter joked putting the hoodie on

“It’s not my fault that I was a spoiled brat. And you don’t know either judging by the pink shirt that was white before that you brought like two days ago” Tony added while playing the movie. Peter wanted to argue but he just watched the movie instead.

The next morning when Peter woke up he could smell the coffee from the couch. Turns out he fell asleep there. He stood up and went to the kitchen to look for something to eat

“Well good morning to you too” Tony said and Peter just glared

“Too early” was everything Peter said. Tony totally got it. He just handed Peter a toast that he made and Peter took it “Just out of curiosity, did you go to bed yesterday or did you stay on the couch?” Tony hesitated. That was good enough for Peter “Who would have thought. You sleeping in the couch” Peter joked

“Yeah well so did you. I didn’t want to wake you up” Tony said with a smile on his face. Peter raised an eyebrow and laughed

“So you do have feelings. Who would have thought?” Tony just rolled his eyes

“You know my secret. Now I have to kill you” Peter laughed and ate the rest of his toast “We have all the weekend. What do you want to do first?” Tony asked and Peter just smiled

“I was thinking maybe finish your suit update and then make another robot? Maybe we can start Synergy! We made her blueprints a while ago and I really liked the idea” Peter said excitedly. Lately Peter has been making blueprints for random robots and likes to name them as science and math terms. Synergy, Axis, Aquifer, Decibel, and stuff like that. Tony thinks it is funny and Peter just really likes it

“We made Axis like two weeks ago” Tony clarified. Peter just raised an eyebrow. Tony knew exactly what he meant “Yeah you’re right. Let’s make Synergy. I’ll go look for Pepper because I want to say hi. You start with the coding in the lab” After that they both went in opposite directions towards where they were supposed to be. When Peter arrived at the lab, a smile invaded his face

“FRI be a dear and play our playlist” The room was filled by ‘Moves like Jagger’. Peter grabbed a screwdriver and started singing while looking at the hologram with the Iron Man’s suit. He’s halfway through the song when he hears the lab’s door open “Took you long enough, old man’’ Peter said, grabbing his apple juice from the mini fridge (not in a juice box anymore. He poured in a cup. He’s a big guy now)

“What the fuck” Peter’s eyes widened when he didn’t hear Tony’s voice. The music stopped and he slowly turned around. Colonel James Rhodes ladies and gentlemen. Peter wants earth to swallow him and spit him in somewhere in far away

“Oh god! I- uhh- Hi!” Parker what the fuck is wrong with you? It’s all Peter could think

“Please tell me you’re some kid that broke into the lab and not Tony that found out a way to make himself look as if he was in college again” Peter hesitated in half confusion. The man knew Tony so he knows the dumb stuff he can pull off

“That is actually a good idea honey bear” Colonel Rhodes turned around to see Tony entering behind him “Wish I thought of that”

“So you instead cloned yourself and made him look younger” Tony raised an eyebrow in amusement. Peter was internally screaming and thinking where is a good place where he can immigrate to not be found ever again

“Rhodey this is Peter, my personal intern. Kid this is Rhodes, but you already knew that” Rhodey’s eyes widened even more

“He’s like twelve” It’s the only thing that comes out of Rhodey’s mouth

“He was fifteen last time I checked” Tony said, looking at Peter as if it was a question. Peter just nodded while raising an eyebrow. He knew that Tony was well aware that Peter was fifteen

“He is a bit of a genius. Peter don’t be rude and say something” Peter did notice how Rhodey turned towards Tony as if he was crazy

“It-It is a real pleasure to meet you s-sir” Peter couldn’t help but stutter, which made Rhodey squint a little. He looked at Peter for a second and raised an eyebrow

“He is drinking” Peter looked at his right hand where the apple juice was. Tony just rolls his eyes

“That is apple juice. Don’t let him fool you” Tony says and then gets into the lab. He starts playing the music again “So, did you start coding?”

“Yeah. Everything should be ready for the update in like five minutes or so” Peter said with a nervous smile

“I’ll check the code and finish it. You go start building the robot. Rhodes you can stay here and chill with us. I already know that you have lots of questions and we have time” Peter just nodded and then opened his laptop to look for the robot blueprints

“So what college do you do to Peter?” Peter literally froze. Rhodey just kept talking with Tony for like two hours and Peter was silent working on its own thing. Eventually he’ll laugh at his jokes and ask Tony a thing or two but he didn’t want to be rude so he just stayed silent. Eventually Peter answered

“I-I am not in college yet sir” Peter said hesitant

“Oh. Sorry I just assumed you were in MIT or something like that. A highschooler that can keep up with Tony is not a thing you get to see everyday. What grade are you in?” Rhodey then asked switching questions. Peter smiled

“I am in about to end my sophomore year” Rhodey smiled back at him

“That sounds fun. Now I am curious. How did you guys meet?” Rhodey asked and Tony immediately looked at Peter who’s eyes widened like plates

“You know what? Fuck it. You are gonna find out anyways. You already know the kid” Tony finally says. Rhodey just raises an eyebrow and Peter literally gasped in disbelief. How dare you? Peter thinks “Yeah. About a year ago. Germany. He is the guy I brought with me” Rhodey stayed silent and Peter just wanted to die

“He doesn’t look like T’Challa, Tony” Rhodey finally says which made Peter blink and Tony roll his eyes

“No shit. I am talking about Spiderman” When Tony says that Rhodey turned to see Peter and then he raised an eyebrow

“There is absolutely no way that this kid is Spiderman” Rhodey thinks out loud. Peter rolls his eyes and sights

“You know why? Because it is a secret. But Tony doesn’t know what those are” Peter says glaring at Tony. That was a bit of a shock for Rhodey because that was the first thing the kid said without stuttering since he got there.

“It’s not like he is not gonna keep the secret! So yeah. Believe it or not he is Spiderman” Tony said and Peter just groaned. Rhodey couldn’t believe it

“So let’s suppose that he is Spiderman, ok? You are telling me you brought a fifteen year old to Germany to fight with the avengers?” That gave Peter the chills. He doesn’t like talking about what happened in Germany. It triggers his PTSD. But Tony doesn’t know that

“I was drunk when I recruited him” Tony admitted

“Were you though?” Peter finally asks glaring at Tony

“You know If I remember correctly, you forgot your shirt yesterday so you had to sleep with the suit” Tony said teasing Peter. For Peter this was like Tony’s way of declaring war. Peter hesitated and after a few seconds he took off the hoodie. Rhodey’s eyes widened

“You did bring a fifteen year old to fight the avengers! What the fuck Tony?!” Rhodey yelled

“I was drunk! I am sorry! After that I tried to stop this whole thing but when I tried he took down an airplane! Least you could do is thank me because I try to keep him as safe as possible!” Tony also yelled. Rhodey just covered his mouth with both of his hands

“Colonel Rhodes, don’t blame Mr. Stark too much. It was my decision to do all of those things, without him I am pretty sure I couldn’t help much people, and he also made me his intern which is really cool. Mr. Stark is great” That was Peter thinking out loud. Rhodey just sighted

“Yeah ok. Damn I need a drink” Rhodey was a little overwhelmed with the situation

“Hate to break it to you but I threw all the good stuff. Best thing you’re gonna get is cooking wine” Tony said

“Why did you do that?!” Rhodey was even more horrified

“I thought I told you I’ve been sober for over a year now” Tony said raising his eyebrow

“Yeah but normally when you say sober you men like two days sober!” Peter did laugh at that one. It was funny. Then FRIDAY’s alarm went off

“The 3d printer is ready!” Peter said and then went to the other room of the lab to look for the thing he printed.. Rhodey waited for Peter to be completely gone to talk

“Tones is he yours?” Rhodes finally asked

“I ’m sure I don’t know what you mean” Tony said looking back at the hologram

“You know, like, are you his dad?” Tony’s eyes widened

“His parents’ names were Richard and Mary Parker. I am not related to him biologically” Tony admitted even though he wished the opposite, but he’s not gonna let him know. He is Tony Stark for crying out loud! He would be the worst parent ever! And Peter didn’t deserve that

“God you two are so alike! Not just physically! And by the way you are not fooling anyone with the tough guy act. It’s obvious that you care about the kid” Tony then turned to see Rhodey to say something, but he just couldn’t. Rhodes was right after all


I do”

4. Running Out Of Time “Collapsed Building”

Tony messes with an artifact, in the Sanctum Sanctorum, and ends up, stuck inside Peter’s darkest memories.

AO3 Link

Tony loved visiting Strange’s place.

There was a lot to see, and for once, he understood none of it.

He was a man of science, and he refused to be drawn in by magic.

However, he did have trouble, with listening to the rules, but that was nothing new.

He tried, but he couldn’t stop his mind from drifting. He’d reach out, to touch artifacts, forgetting that he shouldn’t.

That was why he brought Peter with him.

“Mr. Stark.” Peter turned, batting Tony’s hand away from a display unit, “Stop it.”

Tony pulled back his hand, “I was looking.”

Peter hissed, with a glare, “Look with your eyes.” He turned back, to continue his conversation with Strange.

It was times like these, that Tony couldn’t believe he was the parental one.

Prompt 13: “please don’t leave…”

“Please don’t leave…” Tony begged Ben before realizing he was being selfish.

“It’s just a quick trip to New York so I can pick up, Peter from CPS,” Ben said amused at Tony’s begging.

“How about i come with you?” Tony said. Ben just laughed at his boyfriend. Tony had been making sure he was happy since his brother’s untimely death. Now he had a kid to go get and bring home once and for all. A kid he hadn’t see since he married Tony.

“You could,” Ben said. Tony ran upstairs and came back with a packed suitcase. Ben rolled his eyes as he grabbed Tony’s hand and headed for the car that they were now both taking to the airport.

Idk what this is, I just keep watching tdatt and can’t help but think about a darker Peter. This isn’t edited or anything, just a little thing i wanted to write

Warnings: death, guns, dark(ish) Peter, angst


Peter still hadn’t processed anything that happened. He was definitely in shock.

He just wanted to protect himself. And Ben. But the bullet in his uncle’s chest showed that he failed where it mattered.

And of course he couldn’t let himself get killed too. So with shaky hands he took the gun and fired it twice at the man running away from the scene.

He heard the body drop, but didn’t look. He couldn’t. He couldn’t believe he had done such a thing.

Someone’s blood was on his hands.

Sweet Peter who would never hurt a fly. He killed someone.

He had to convince himself that it was self defense. He was afraid for his life. It hadn’t been in revenge.

Instead of looking at the other man, he turned to Ben, leaning down and trembling as he screamed for help.

Everyone that watched knew there was no help. The man was barely still breathing, only living because he fought to stay. For Peter.

But in the end he couldn’t fight any longer.

And Peter’s only consolation was that neither could his killer.

the whole world is a blur, but you are standing

“Hoppípolla“ - Sigur Rós

(English translation):
Spinning ‘round and 'round
Holding hands
The whole world a blur
But you are standing

read on ao3 or here

The summer when Peter turns nine, his uncle builds a Little Free Library for their Forest Hills neighborhood.

Technically they build it together, but Ben does most of the grown up work, using the table saw and power drill to cut the plywood and screw the pieces together, while Peter helps by handing him materials. “I’ll teach you when you’re older,” Ben tells him, as Peter watches him cut the wood, standing back several feet away and wearing his own safety goggles. “If you lose a finger, your aunt will kill me.”

Peter bobs his head in understanding. Uncle Ben is a handyman, which means he fixes stuff in people’s homes. He’s also built things in the Parker’s house, like Peter’s desk and Aunt May’s raised flower beds. Peter thinks handyman is a fitting name, because Ben’s hands are big and strong for lifting Peter onto his shoulders and holding onto him in bustling crowds.

“I still want you paying attention, bud,” Ben says around the pencil between his teeth as he stretches the yellow tape measure. “You ever heard the phrase, measure twice, cut once?”
