Alec clutches the worn out comic book in his hands, his eyes sweeping over Captain America’s stance on the cover. He still remembers how excited Max had been when he’d gotten it, going on and on about how Captain America helped people, how he just wanted to stop the bullies - how he was a hero.
Staring down at the star on Cap’s shield, Alec pushes away all his anger and grief, focussing on the single most ridiculous idea he’s ever had. He can hear Hodge's voice, clear as day:
“With great power, comes great responsibility.”

- Part 1 of spidey 'verse
Isabelle leaned against the doorframe. “Any progress?”
Magnus looked around at the notes spread around him. “As dear old Thomas used to say, I’ve found 10,000 ways that won’t work, so we’ll call it a productive day.”
Magnus Bane has dedicated his immortal life to science, new inventions and discovering everything magic can do. After years of hard work, he is so, so close to revolutionising transportation by creating a magical portal that actually works, but he has let his work take over his whole life. However, when Isabelle, his mundane assistant researcher, brings around her brother Alec, Magnus’s obsessive focus wavers for the first time in a decade. Maybe giving himself a few breaks will actually help him figure out the magical theory behind portals.

Alissa’s voice startles Magnus out of his thoughts.
“Magnus, I know the past few weeks have been hard on you. I can see it in your eyes.” She sighs, as if Magnus’ pain is her own. “But I see this spark in you. It's amazing. Whatever you choose to do with it, you'll be great.”
Magnus swallows around the lump in his throat. “Thanks, mama.”
Alissa smiles at him lovingly and takes his hand. “I raised a boy full of light. Don't lose that - no matter what life throws at you.” With a twinkle in her eye, she adds, “You’re my hero, sayang.”

- Part 2 of spidey 'verse
Alec writes a letter to Magnus, wanting to ask one simple question, and through it, he remembers the four years they've shared together.
It all started with a library, a nickname, and the hope to fall in love.
