    Summary

    When the prosecution starts throwing around the word victim in reference to Adrien, he has to stuff his hands under his thighs to keep himself from bolting out of the courtroom.

    Adrien had felt unsafe during those last few weeks, but, until he had woken up and seen Father silhouetted in his bedroom doorway, that had only been paranoia. Father was controlling and cold, but he wasn’t hateful. Adrien was isolated. He was often hungry. And some weeks ago, when he had snuck out to visit Nino, sitting thigh-to-thigh on his bed while Adrien cried in that silent, crumbling way of his, he hadn’t argued when Nino put a hand on his shoulder and said, tentatively, That’s abuse.

    But Adrien remembers being small and Father touching his hair after he’d aced another test; Father holding his scribbled drawings like they were something precious, and framing them around his office; Father, dressed as Hawkmoth, his eyes wild behind the mask, lashing his sword against Adrien’s baton; Father, collapsed against Mum, crying into her ashy hair.

     

    Adrien finds out Gabriel is Hawkmoth, and Gabriel gets to bring his long-waited plan into action.

    Phil's gone away for a family reunion and Dan is left at home to contemplate the various ways he shouldn't come out.

    Can probably be read as a standalone work, but you should read The Unexpected Harvest anyway :)

    Summary

    5 times throughout the years that Dan and Phil did the FWB thing, 1 time they didn’t, and 1 time it all worked out.

    (Or, the time that Dan misunderstands one little conversation—which he still maintains is PHIL'S FAULT, not his—and it leads to six years of unrequited pining.

    But it’ll be a good story for the grandkids one day.)

    Summary

    “Watch out, one day I'll get revenge and you’ll wake up with your hair dyed a bright yellow, and it will be all your fault because you can’t stop talking shit.” Thalia warns him.

    “Yeah,” Percy agrees as he puts the bottle back and browses through the others, “that’s my sin. When I die and go to the Underworld, I’ll be judged on my shit talking.”

    “Honestly, you will.”

    (AU where Thalia lives with the Jacksons in the months between The Sea of Monsters and The Titan's Curse.)

    Summary

    Slamming the palms of his hands down onto the washbasin he took a deep breath, hanging his head for a few seconds in fear before slowly raising it to meet his own reflection in the mirror. His breath escaped him in a hiss, his earlier shock a mere shadow in comparison to the force of the new blow that struck him when his gaze met the wide eyed stare of his fourteen year old self.

    Not many people get a second chance to make things right. Fewer still get a third or fourth. When Hiro is given a second chance to save his brother he finds out that second chances are not what they are cracked up to be.

    Summary

    “I dunno, maybe the huge flaming words in the sky that said, ‘MEET ME AT THE USUAL PLACE. IT’S URGENT.’ In my ever so humble opinion, ‘urgent’ usually means fire, or ‘all my super powered teammates have been kidnapped,’ or ‘the stock market’s about to crash so you better buy bread now.’ Not ‘I ran outta hairspray.’”

    Johnny touched a hand to his hair – which, admittedly, felt a bit stiff. “You think I used too much?”

    “I’m a real fan of Elvis, honest.” Spidey ruffled Johnny’s hair. Johnny could feel his flame curling in his stomach, his toes, and every inch that Spidey’s gloved hand touched. “But you might not wanna take styling tips from him.”

     

    Or: The year is 1966, and Johnny Storm loves hairspray and Spider-Man a little too much.

    Summary

    "What's the pettiest thing you've ever done to someone you love?"

    "I spent about a week pretending I'd forgotten Spider-Man's secret identity once."

    Peter nearly dropped his five hundred dollar camera at Johnny's declaration. The interviewer chuckled. "Not what I meant by someone you love," she said.

    Johnny rolled his eyes. "I know what you meant."

    "So you and Spider-Man are dating?" she asked.

    Johnny smirked at Peter. "I think he knows how I feel."

    Summary

    Spider-Man is a relatively new, controversial vigilante, and Johnny has a crush the size of the Empire Building. The Four - operating under the assumption that Spidey is an adult - do not approve.

     

    “I just happen to think Spider-Man's cool,” Johnny says, matter-of-factly. “A hero can think another hero is cool without making it weird. I admire his aloofness. And his badass-ness.”

    “His aloofness,” Ben repeats, chuckling into his mug of beer. It’s roughly the size of Johnny’s head. “Yeah, sure, I bet that’s all your admire, right?”

    Summary

    “Folks like to say there’s a monster that lives in the forest,” Old Swenson said the next day when Johnny told him his story. Johnny worked in his shop, when Swenson could afford to pay him. He fixed things, clocks and broken carriages. Johnny wasn’t good for much, but he had a hand for repairs. “And that it’ll grant you wishes, for a price. Folks will say anything, after a drink or five. Don’t listen to that kind of foolish talk, Johnny.”

    When Johnny makes a deal with the monster that lives in the woods – himself for his sister’s happiness – he doesn’t expect the giant spider to take him to a beautiful castle, or to reveal himself a cursed prince. There’s only one catch: he’s only a man in the darkest night, and Johnny can never see his face.
