My plan is completed, for my Irondad Christmas Carol AU, that will have four chapters, the first will be published on the 21st of December, and the last will be on Christmas Eve.
Happy FFWF! Hmmm, I haven’t read many field trip fics, not really my thing, so apologies if this sounds generic haha
- I imagine Peter would be pretty embarrassed if they took a trip to Stark Tower
- He’d be excited to show Ned and MJ where he spends his time, but Flash would be a problem
- Peter would be terrified he would embarrass him in front of Tony, he might even think about trying to have Tony call off the trip
- But he knows how excited Ned and MJ and the other kids are to go, so he decides not to
- He does slip away as soon as possible though, choosing to avoid the presentation altogether. He didn’t care if he got in trouble, getting one detention wasn’t going to hurt him, he just didn’t want to be there when Tony found out about his bully
- Peter just goes up to his room in the tower, not even Ned and MJ know Tony gave that to him. He ends up having a bit of a panic attack there because he’s so scared Tony’s going to think he’s weak or stupid for not standing up to Flash
- Meanwhile downstairs, Tony hears the name “Penis Parker” far too many times, without even seeing the person who the name referred to. When Flash asks if Peter Parker really is his intern, Tony answers with a deadpan “yes” fixes him with a glare so intense Flash doesn’t ask anything else
-Peter stays in his room so long that he still hasn’t calmed down by the time it’s time to leave, so he texts Ned and has him tell the teacher his Aunt picked him up
- Tony comes up to his room right after the kids leave to find Peter buried in blankets, crying quietly. He pulls Peter up and hugs him, shushing him when Peter tries to apologize for not staying and standing up for himself. He tells Peter it was okay for him to leave, he doesn’t deserve to be humiliated like that
-They spend the rest of the night watching some Star Wars and eating ice cream on the couch together :]
Day 2: “Pick Who Dies”| Collars| Kidnapped
Mr. Stark was going to be so pissed. She was sure of it. Getting kidnapped was one thing, but allowing for Morgan to be taken too was a whole other level. She’d been babysitting for the day, taking Morgan out for a day at the Central Park Zoo as she tried to adjust to the newly repopulated world and Mr. Stark’s new family. But something had happened when they’d been looking at the penguins, and she couldn’t exactly remember what it was other than the hissing of gas and the whoosh! of doors clanging closed.
But then she’d woken up, cold except for a small and warm body clinging onto her desperately as it cried. She’d realized quickly that it was Morgan, and that they definitely weren’t in the zoon anymore.
“Morgan?” she’d whispered in the dark, and the girl had frozen before gripping onto harder.
“Penny, Penny!” she’d cried, and Penny had sat up, wincing at the soreness in her side, and scooping Morgan into her lap, “I thought–I thought you were gone again and I didn’t wanna be alone!”
Day 1: Waking Up Restrained| Shackled| Hanging
Tony groaned when he became aware, the crick in his neck painful and his arms feeling like they were being stretched thin and prickling from falling asleep. He must have slept on his arms or something, and God his head hurt and–
Where the fuck was he?
The billionaire blinked, squinting to try and see better in the dark room that he found himself in, but colors fizzled and danced across his vision, making him unable to actually take anything in, but it was easy enough to tell what was going on. He sighed in annoyance. Being kidnapped was awful enough by itself, but he had a date with Pepper tonight! He’d barely seen her all week and now this. It was really quite rude.
Finally becoming more aware of his surroundings, he took in his situation. He was chained to a wall by his wrists, his feet unable to touch the ground that was barely half a foot under him. The room was pitch black, so he couldn’t make out anything inside it–and whether he was actually alone or not–that is until he heard a soft moan.
Chapter 7: The Stark Expo
“Are you sure this is a good idea?”
Penny glanced up from her camera to look at Ned, whose face was tight with concern. They were on a crowded bus on their way to the Penelope Stark Expo, and she might’ve not told May. Maybe.
She’d been out later every night trying to find leads to find that Vulture guy, but no luck. She’d never found that 'big deal,’ or the other guys again. She didn’t even know if she was close, though she had been going more to the outskirts of the city to try and find them, but she guessed they’d moved on or something after she’d caught them, because so far: Nothing.
“Why wouldn’t it be?” MJ asked from Penny’s other side, her nose in a book, “Penny sneaks out all the time, I doubt she’ll get caught.”
“Yeah,” Penny supported, “And besides, I told May I was working and I am, just, not where she thought I would be.”
Mr. Jameson had seen her photos of Spider-Woman and had been impressed, so he had sent her out to the Expo to get pics of the other heroes. She didn’t quite know what stories he wanted to print, so she’d decided she would mostly focus on the science exhibits. And now Penny was on her way to the event of the year with her two best friends.
Chapter 6: The Parker’s
The combination of sizzling and cheerful conversation greeted Tony and Pepper as they walked into the kitchen, and it loosened the knot that was always in his chest a little. The past couple of months had been complicated, and they still were, but hearing everyone laughing peacefully…it was good.
Bucky and Sam were cooking, they were really the only ones that could, while everyone else lounged around. Nat was sitting on the counter with a book in her lap, though she wasn’t reading it. Instead, she kept conversation with Rhodey, who was sipping a coffee while sitting on a stool by her. Wanda and Vision sat at the table, both were reading, with Wanda flipping her pages every few minutes with a red glow. Steve and Sam were talking while the ladder flipped bacon and sausages. Bucky remained mostly quiet, as he usually did. He’d only come to stay with them a week ago after recovering in Wakanda, and had brought with him a host of new problems.
Rationally, he knew it wasn’t Barnes who killed his parents, but he couldn’t stop himself from tensing every time he was in a room with the man, from being defensive and untrusting. At least he was working on it.
Other than his own misgivings, there came the problem with the UN. Things were already rather tense, what with what happened in Lagos and the UN building, but at least it hadn’t been worse. He didn’t know what he’d have done if a fight had broken out.
For anyone who’s stil curious, or for anyone who hasn’t seen our other posts on this topic, we’d like to explain more in depth how the nominations and award system will work.
Nominations themselves are rather clear: you send in a story (or multiple!) through one of our two nomination forms, depending on which category you’re nominating for. After that, there will be a second set of forms for you to choose stories from that will decide the top nominees.
Each trope category will have 4-5 top nominees (or more) depending on how many stories are nominated in each. The other categories will have as many as ten (if not more) top nominees in them. Another important distinction: there will be no places. There’s no 1st place, 2nd place, etc. The order in which people are listed is not indicative of their votes and/or place.
Please remember to be kind throughout this event, and also remember that this is to spread some joy through the holiday season! (P.s., we will be using the tag “irondad fandom awards” on all of our posts.)
