    Summary

    “A field trip?” Peter said.

    “Just a little family outing,” Sue said, passing him a knife. He took it and obediently started helping her cut the crusts off a small mountain of sandwiches. “We thought you might like to join us.”

    “I mean, it sounds great,” Peter said. “But work is a little swamped and somehow whenever I take off with you guys I always manage to go missing for two months. My landlady does not love it.”

    “We really could use the extra set of hands. Also,” Sue said, “someone needs to keep an eye on Johnny.”

    Peter groaned.

    --

    Peter's spider-sense starts acting up on a Future Foundation field trip. He and Johnny, recently returned from the Negative Zone, have to pretend to be married. These two things are related.

    Gosh I love everyone in this fic but especially everybody in the Parker household. Such a great read. <3<3<3

     

    Miles squeezes his eyes shut. “What am I supposed to do when I find out my hero might not be a hero anymore?”
    Ganke flinches.
    “I thought so,” Miles says. He grabs his backpack and stalks into the next class.
    He doesn’t say another word to Ganke until he’s debating if he wants to web his way to Queens or take the train. Ganke taps him on his shoulder as he’s zipping up his hoodie, his face twisted. “You take a moment to be happy he’s alive,” Ganke says.
    “What?”
    “If you’re hero’s not a hero anymore,” Ganke clarifies. “You take a minute to be happy he’s alive.”
    Miles nods.
    Ganke bites his lip. “And then you figure out what it takes to bring him back.”
    Miles wraps his friend in a tight hug.

     

    “First of all, I am beyond mad at you for not inviting me to a meet-the-superhero dinner. Second…” Ganke exhales, the blanket sinking with his shoulders. “You know this isn’t us fighting, right? None of this is your fault. You don’t have to do this. Any of it. I don’t think Gwen and May would blame you.”
    “You know I can’t do that,” Miles says.
    “I know,” Ganke says softly. “You’re a good person, Miles.”

     

    He loves you,” Miles says. He knows it must be true, because he loves May Parker, too. Can’t imagine it’s possible to grow up with someone like this and not want to do the right thing. “It isn’t your fault."

     

    Y“But what if I break, too?” Miles is dangerously close to tears. “I’ve seen some of the things Peter’s faced and Ms. May, what he’s doing is wrong, but I’m looking from the outside. If someone had done it to me, I can’t say I wouldn’t do the exact same thing.”
    “Miles,” she says softly. “You have to understand that every single person has the capacity to do horrible things.”
    “That doesn’t make me feel better.”
    “Really?” May says. “Because I always thought that if everyone has the capacity for evil, the reverse must also be true. Everyone out there, from the men on death row, to the maniacs who take down half the city, to Peter has the capacity to do wonderful things. I have to believe that everyone can be redeemed.”
    “You really think Peter can come back? After everything he’s done?”
    “He won’t be the same.” May puts a hand on Miles’s shoulder. “But of course he can come back.”
    Miles licks his lips, pokes at the bandage on his hand. “And if I can’t make him see reason? If he doesn’t want to come back?”
    “Tell him I love him,” May says. “And then you do what you think is right.”
    “If I don’t know what that is?” Miles asks desperately. “What do I do then?”
    May wraps him in a hug, and lets him bury his head against her shoulder. “You’ll know, Miles. You’ll know.”

     

    “Kid,” Peter says, “you’ll be a million times better than me.”
    “I wouldn’t even be out here if it wasn’t for you.” Miles isn’t sure if he hates Peter or loves him for that fact. “You were my hero. You still are.”

     

    “You look like you have the world on your shoulders, mijo,” his mom says.
    “You ever look at two choices and realize both of them are awful?”
    “Of course,” his mother responds, rubbing a hand against his shoulder. “You know what I always do?”
    “What?” Miles asks.
    She laughs at his too-quick response. “I make a third choice. Now come on, let’s get you back to school. I’m sure you’ve probably scared Ganke.”

     

    People always underestimate pawns,” Peters says. “See if you keep fighting, make it all the way across the board, you can become whatever you want. You’re a good person, Miles. I might not be anymore, but I know you’re doing the right thing.”

     

    After a second, he realizes that Ganke has headphones in. That he’s probably been listening to the news, that he’s heard Spider-Man was subdued by authorities.
    “It was the other guy.” Miles shuffles his feet. “I owe you an apology. And the rest of a really long story.”
    Ganke tears the earbuds out and gives Miles a quick hug. “It’s all right,” he says. “I’m just glad you’re okay.”

    Summary

    Bitty is still talking fifteen minutes later when the gasps on the other end of the line have come to a stop, the stranger’s breathing seemingly back to normal. Bitty trails off, his thoughts about maple syrup in cookie batter coming to an abrupt end. There’s a few moments of silence before the stranger on the other end of the line speaks.

    “Thanks.”

    The man’s tone is deep, but seems less shaky than when Bitty first picked up the phone.

    Bitty can do nothing but whisper into the receiver, the moment too fragile for anything louder. “Of course.”

    There’s another few long moments of silence before Bitty hears the dial tone in his ear.
