    Summary

    After four months with no contact between him and Mr. Stark, Peter finally comes to a conclusion he should have come to much, much earlier.

    Basically, I'm very upset as to how Peter was treated by Happy and Tony in the beginning of the movie.

    Summary

    “Why did you think I wouldn’t like you for being gay?” Steve asks gently.

    “You’re Captain America.” Eli’s got his teeth clenched and is resolutely looking ahead. “You stand for truth and justice and the American way. You stand for American morals. You stand for…” he shrugs awkwardly. “Not people like me.”

    Steve blows the air out of his cheeks slowly, trying to figure out how to keep the anger out of his voice so Eli doesn’t think it’s at him.

    Or, Steve comes to terms with his new world, and gains some children in the process.

    Summary

    Iron Man, an Avenger, had stumbled inside the Emergency Room just a moment ago, his suit gleaming wet in the harsh neon-lights. In his arms, he was holding the teenager New York – and the world – had come to identify as the 'Queens Orphan'. It looked as if he was sleeping, cradled securely in Iron Man's grip like a child.
    But there was too much blood for that to be the case.

     

    After their return to New York and with the adoption still pending, Tony struggles with the boundaries of being a legal guardian while Peter fears that moving to Manhattan means he is losing his connection to Queens and his life there. When Peter's danger-sense starts acting up in the face of an unknown threat and an unexpected visitor drops by with news from Steve, the simmering conflict comes to a head, forcing both Peter and Tony to admit some things they'd rather kept to themselves.
    Like the fact that Tony didn't tell Peter the entire truth about Germany.
    Or the reason Peter sometimes wakes up crying and terrified of the dark.
