    Summary

    Tommy seems pale and drawn, like a person stepping up to the gallows, as he enters the booth to sing. His hands don’t shake, but it feels disingenuous of Wilbur to look at that as a ray of light in everything. The group of them watch from behind the one way glass as Tommy steps up to the microphone. His eyes fall closed and they don’t open back up.

    When he sings, it’s such a wail of pain that Wilbur’s sure by the end that Tommy will drop to his knees and heave.

    He doesn’t. Almost by miracle, Tommy’s standing when he's finished, and with a creased, ruined expression and a torn heart, he steps back from the mic and walks out like it was nothing.

    There’s silence, then –

    “Holy shit,” Schlatt says, and yeah. That just about sums it all up.

    Or, Tommy is a young pop artist going on tour - he holds auditions for his touring band and ends up getting not just a band, but a family. It's just -- he doesn't seem to know that. (based around Olivia Rodrigo's album Sour)

    Summary

    “You can sing,” Wilbur huffs, stretching a leg out and nudging Techno with a socked toe. Techno gives a scathing glare and pointedly turns away, taking the bass with him. Phil, fiddling with the wires for the amp, laughs, endlessly amused, and all of a sudden, Tommy feels like bursting into tears right there on the couch garage.

    or, SBI are teenagers in a band called Pigstep, but Tommy knows what they do not. That there is a timestamp on how long the dream lasts.

    Summary

    The first thing that happens when Tommy Innes crashes during his 159th lap around Auto Club Speedway, is his wheel loses traction with the ground, and he goes careening to the right...
    -
    Tommy Innes has dreamed of being a race car driver since he was four years old. Now, at eighteen, he's the youngest rookie on the NASCAR tracks, and about to participate in his very first Cup Series. When a bad wreck leaves him with a butchered sense of hearing, though, he and his new team must navigate the challenges that come along with it. Including, but not limited to: new tech; Tommy's own self-doubt; and one utterly irritating, legendary racer, Wilbur Soot.

    Summary

    Tommy stared longingly out the window at all the parents picking up their children. Well, more accurately, at the hybrid parents with their kids.

    Otter hybrids intertwining with each other’s hands, bear hybrids tucking their cubs into their side… They were all so casual with displaying and sating their instincts. His gaze caught on a spider hybrid helping their spiderling climb up onto their back. Tommy yearned for the same.

    But his dad wasn’t like him; he was a human.

    OR: A very short and sweet oneshot for beloved Unlikely's birthday about Little SwanInnit and Dadbur.

    Summary

    “Are you—fucking mad?” Sentinel heaves.
    “You asked for me,” Tommy pants, trying not to show pain but knows he’s not succeeding as he heaves air like a man starved. “You asked the heroes to hand me over in exchange for the hostages. You’ve seen me fight. Zyghost knows too.”
    He knows that Tommy can’t jump anymore, but that’s all of it. Maybe they’re thinking his electricity and power shocks is something tied to his teleportation, but they can’t know the true extent of Tommy’s “power” and he’s pretty sure that that is what’s keeping him alive.

    “You want to poke me,” he hisses, although it doesn’t sound nearly as threatening as he wants, when he’s so goddamned tired and hurt and fucking aching.
    “You want to prod me. You want to figure out my powers. Either you think I’m your new bargaining chip or your new protégé you want to torture into submission,” he spits, hitting the nail on its fucking head when Sentinel freezes in his sights. “Well I’m fucking neither. I’m Theseus, illegal fucking vigilante and two of your hostages happened to be my family.

    “And this is personal, bitch.”


    Or: Being a vigilante isn’t simple—or legal—but Tommy refuses to sit on the sidelines.
