    Summary

    After the public death of a superhuman 15 year old, teenage superheroes are forced to wear government-issued clothing that marks them as underage.
    Or; Peter is backed into a corner, Tony Stark grows increasingly frustrated, and New York protects their own.

     

    Peter focusses on the pedestrians, on their whispering and pointing. At Peter. At his blue Regulation Jacket, in the middle of Times Square, blown up to epic proportions on the huge towering screens.

    Oh.

    “Oh,” Peter says, dumbly. “Oh no.”

    Summary

    As she approached the actually rather unremarkable looking young man, she felt a swell of doubt. Was he really who she’d thought he was? Spider-Man had been a giant of a man, someone she could easily imagine at the front of her train, gripping hundreds of webs with power enough to crush the train car into the shape of his body.

    This boy looked barely able to carry his overstuffed backpack. With his Oxford shirt and jeans and neatly combed hair, he could have been the poster child for a 1950s science scholarship. Not someone you imagined facing down an eight-armed psychopath on a speeding train.

    Half convinced she’d imagined the whole thing, Maggie crossed the diner and stepped up to his table. After a moment he noticed her, lifting his attention from an open book full of equations and cracker crumbs to look right at her.

    All doubt vanished when Maggie looked into his blue eyes and round face. It was him. No question. It was Spider-Man, right here at her table, waiting to order breakfast from her.

    Summary

    Shane had never really considered himself a leader. The Bradley's had never thought of themselves as being a part of any team that wasn't each other's. Adjusting is hard. Somehow, it's not looking quite so impossible anymore, though.

    Summary

    Do you ever find yourself looking at your life, and wonder what went wrong? Why it hasn't turned out how you'd imagined it to be? Wonder what happened to all your dreams and hopes and desires? Do you sometimes look back to try and pin-point the exact moment where things changed? Where your future ended before it had begun?

    I don't.

    Because I know that moment. That exact moment, to the very day and hour. My life changed forever the moment my parents were murdered, and any childish plans and dreams I had were forgotten in that instant, consigned to a scrapheap in my mind. Ideas of a future that no longer exists. 

    In between fighting for survival and working to make ends meet, you have to remember to live. But that's easier said than done, when somewhere along the way you've forgotten what you're living for. Maybe all you need is someone to remind you you're alive.

    A story looking Blake and Hunter's relationship and how they meet the challenges posed by new friends, new team, and new love.
