    Summary

    "Let me get this straight," Batman said after a lengthy pause, "You're using wrapping paper to roll a joint on top of a skyscraper, all alone, depowered, at two in the morning."

    "Yes," Clark said emphatically, then frowned. "Wait. No. It sounds really bad when you say it like that."

    Batman quirked an eyebrow.

    "It's craft paper," he said, sheepish, "I couldn't find anything else."

     

    Or, where Clark gets depowered, gets a little high, and maybe Batman pets his hair a little. Maybe.

    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.

    Summary

    Tony had had a plan. He'd even had several contingency plans. But not for this.

    Peter stared at him, his dark eyes flitting to the phone and then back, and Tony could see that he understood, could pinpoint the moment Peter knew … and refused to believe it. His jaw set, his hands clenched into fists and he shook his head. ”No.”
    Tony breathed and shook his head. ”Peter … your aunt … I'm sorry.”

    Summary

    When May suffers a stroke, Tony is called to the hospital to take Peter home for the night. He isn't prepared for this in the least and Peter has difficulties accepting help. One night of trying to find boundaries, middle-ground and sleep might just change that.

    ”I don't need help!” Peter said angrily. “Aunt May and I have been taking care of each other since Uncle Ben died and we managed just fine.”
    Tony shook his head. ”This is different, Peter. This is huge. Your aunt will be sick for a very long time to come. She might never recover fully. You're a minor. You can't do this alone.”

    Summary

    5 times it wasn't a hug and the one time it was.

    Or...

    The one where Tony has a habit of not-really-but-kinda-sorta hugging Peter and finally gets it right when it matters the most.
