    Summary

    “What do you like to read then?” asked Tony.

    “Stories I guess,” said Peter, with a shrug. “Ones where people find each other.”

    Tony looked at him, with a questioning expression, waiting for him to elaborate.

    “You know, where people who start out alone find each other, and make their own families.”

    Sounded like a bunch of fairy tales to Tony, but he didn’t dare say so out loud and steal a bit hope from this boy, who only pretended he didn’t want to be adopted. Tony knew an act when he saw one. He supposed it was easier to chase people away and pretend he didn’t want a family than it was to be crushed when things didn’t work out.

    Tony couldn’t say he blamed him.

    OR

    A pre-Iron Man Tony Stark accidentally finds himself at an adoption fair, and he meets a certain seven-year-old genius who steals his heart and changes his life.

    Summary

    “Hello everyone,” he says. His voice is calm and soothing. His forearms are resting lightly on the countertop but he’s not leaning on them. “My name is Yuuri, I’m a professional chef, and today I’m going to teach you how make a desert called Marquise au Chocolat.” He pushes his glasses up his nose a little bit. “I hope I pronounced that correctly,” he says, a little more to himself than to the camera. “This is my sous chef, Vicchan, and she’ll be helping me today, right, Vicchan?”

    Summary

    And, yes, this wasn’t the first time that he’d seen Peter since he’d come back, but it was... it was different now. This wasn’t a memory, it wasn’t clutching frantically at the cool metal of the Iron Spider suit as death spilled out around them. It certainly wasn’t covered by an end-of-life blur, wasn’t permeated by the frustration of trying to say goodbye without words.
    No, this was just... this was just Peter: hair messy, wrapped in an oversized Midtown sweatshirt, warm and breathing and solid. Not dust, not ash, not bloodied and afraid.
    Just Peter. His Peter.
