    Summary

    Tony watches as May taps her nails on the table. The sound seems to worm its way into his skull, deep into the crevices of his brain, filling up all the silence. Everything has felt silent since they got back home, and Peter closed the door behind him. Tony thought he felt helpless before, when there was ash in the air and fear in his heart. But now Peter’s back. Everybody’s back. They’re supposed to be celebrating, they’re supposed to be throwing parties and making bad lemon drop shots and playing that stupid dancing game Peter likes just because they can. They’re alive, they’re all alive against all odds, they made it—but Peter’s in bed. Peter’s quiet.

    Tony and May have no goddamn idea what to do about it.

    Summary

    Tony may not be crying, but the warble of his voice tells a different story when he speaks up again. “He was good for me. And he was good. He was the one who helped me understand I didn’t have to throw away what I believed in because of what I had with him. I mean, granted, it took me probably another decade at that point to actually get it, but at least he got the hammer going in my thick skull.”

    “You do have a thick skull sometimes,” Peter grumbles.

    “I take offense at that, Underoos. I have a thick skull all the time.”

    Tony can practically hear the eye-roll in the kid’s tone. “I wonder sometimes what I idolized in you as a kid.”

    “A question for you to answer, kid, not me. I’m just the washed-up has-been engineer playing with million-dollar titanium alloy toys in his tower.”

    “I would love to take a dissertation to your face with, like, ninety-five theses on why you’re wrong,” Peter retorts, “but I’m more invested in the story. Why did you...why do you say you didn’t have to throw away everything you believed in?”
    ---
    Tony helps Peter in more ways than he'll ever know to come to grips with his sexuality and his feelings about Ned.

    Clint is teaching Peter about the ventilation system in the Tower, and how to navigate it. Steve just wants to go on a run. Vision likes chess and Peter has gotten a little too close to Natasha's past for her liking.

    Sam has plans to hustle all of New York, Wanda is called upon for an important favour and Bucky really should've told Peter not to wear such an obnoxious t-shirt.

    Rhodey just needs to apologise and Tony tells Peter more about the past he's forgotten.

    Also contains: multiple heart-to-hearts, an arm wrestling competition in a dive bar and the internet, catching their first ever glimpse of the prodigal Stark son.

    Summary

    He needed to sleep but lately he’d been forgetting what that was like.

    Lately, he’d been spending his nights pacing his room, trying to stop the images of a mangled body from slipping into his mind.

    He'd see the guns, see himself, see blood smeared across his knuckles.

    He forced those images from his mind and they were only replaced with his Mom. With Pepper, on her knees as the compound crumbled around them.
